Pro-Life Banners Labelled “Hate Speech” In San Francisco



You had to know this was coming, right? Yes, it was only a matter of time before the baby-mass-murdering-fanatical-death-cult started labeling as “hate speech” anti-abortion free expression and demanding their speech be censored by government.

[quote_box_center]Ah, the holiday season along Market Street. Snowflakes hanging from lamp posts. Store windows filled with red and green. Banners reading, “Abortion hurts women.”

Yes, for the second time in two years, the city’s main thoroughfare has become a hotbed of anger and finger-pointing over abortion-related banners.

In January 2012, a local pro-choice group called the Silver Ribbon Campaign to Trust Women sponsored banners with slogans including “U.S. Out of My Uterus.” An antiabortion group called Life Legal Defense Foundation demanded the city take them down, saying they shouldn’t have been issued permits because they weren’t advertising a particular event. The Department of Public Works said they were legit and left them up, though vandals removed some.

Now, it appears the shoe is on the other foot. Or the banner on the other lamp post? A group called Walk for Life West Coast, which is organizing its 10th annual antiabortion march in San Francisco on January 25, has placed 50 banners along Market Street reading “Abortion hurts women.” They will be flying for about a month.

The Silver Ribbon Campaign to Trust Women wrote a letter to Mayor Ed Lee this week saying the banners contain “a false and hateful statement” and demanded they be removed.

Ellen Shaffer, director of the Silver Ribbon Campaign, said she considers the banners hate speech against women and that such baseless slogans contributed to an increased denial of reproductive health care for women and girls. She said Market Street now is lined with “Snowflakes — snowflakes and lies. It’s really a shock.”[/quote_box_center]

I agree at The Federalist Papers when he said… “Let the Silver Ribbon Campaign know how you feel about pro-life views being labeled as hate speech by emailing them here: [email protected]

    The Left is so “tolerant” that they deem anybody with views different than their own to be hate speech, want to ban or otherwise regulate anything they dislike, all the while forcing Christianity out of our country.

    “Hate Speech” and “Racist” and “Bigot”

    All these terms get thrown around by liberals so often that they really don’t mean anything anymore.

    A liberal is someone whose mind is so “open” that their brains have leaked out!

    Always notice that what ACTUALLY happens to a baby during an abortion is never mentioned. Women have been convinced by the left that abortion is just another form of birth control. Not true, and the babies suffer horribly during the abortion. A women having an abortion should have to see the baby at whatever stage she is at in her pregnancy. If women saw these things, I’d be willing to bet motherly instincts of protection would kick it. The left will not allow that.

    it doesn’t matter. hate speech is still protected speech.
    “HATE SPEECH” is free speech: The U.S. Supreme Court stated the
    general rule regarding protected speech in Texas v. Johnson (109 S.Ct.
    at 2544), when it held: “The government may not prohibit the verbal
    or nonverbal expression of an idea merely because society finds the idea
    offensive or disagreeable.” Federal courts have consistently followed this. Said Virginia federal district judge Claude Hilton: “The
    First Amendment does not recognize exceptions for bigotry, racism, and
    religious intolerance or ideas or matters some may deem trivial, vulgar
    or profane.”

    Why are you capitulating to the leftist propaganda and calling it anti-abortion instead of pro life. You’re falling for their trap.

    What’s with the pic of Steve Foley and the assault rifle? Gotta have a pic of a ex-Marine with a weapon of mass destruction. A gun feared by all school children. Who is promoting hate? By the way I am PRO-LIFE. Not everyone has to be a right wing bible thumping, Duck hunting, gay hating, wishing for the days of segregation to return kinda hillbilly guy to disapprove of abortion. But what is with all this posing with assault weapons? The far right is the party of hate! I Notice this is rightly named the Minority Report.
