Anti-Islamic Ads Return to Muni Buses

The American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI) is running a second round of Anti-Islamic ads on 10 of San Franciscos 800 city buses. The group, whose stated goal is to resist the "Islamisation of America" ran similar controversial ads in August. City authorities and community leaders have once again condemned the ads as hate speech not free speech but their hands are tied. A court ruling on the first amendment has forced SN Francisco transit agency to accept the ads, which will run for one more month. KPFA's Karin Argoud reports.
