Skip to comments.Va lawmaker calls for removal of 'disrespectful' Metro ad
Posted on 02/29/2012 9:37:00 PM PST by Dadofmany
WMATA issued a statement saying its advertising has been ruled by the courts as protected under the First Amendment, and the Authority does not decline ads based on their political content.
"WMATA does not endorse the advertising on our system, and ads to not reflect the position of the Authority," says the statement.
In response to their statement, Congressman Jim Moran says, "I am disappointed by WMATA's defense of this inappropriate advertisement. If their current advertising guidelines do not prohibit profane advertisements on taxpayer-funded property, then WMATA should take the initiative and update them. Profanity has no place in the public forum.

Seems littlel Jimmy Boy can't stand the truth?
Good thing I didn't write it or the ad would be much more "disrispectful" to this "Rat" and include such words as "Narcissistic, Fascist, Neo-Commie," etc.
Where were these people when Dubya was in the White House?
“Seems littlel Jimmy Boy can’t stand the truth?”
Look in the dictionary under worthless POS, and the underlying photo is of Jim Moron!
I know why Moran doesn’t like this ad and Metro. He ran off the trolley track a long time ago.
I agree with the Bus

For about two years until just a couple of months ago, there was a billboard on I29 north of KC that I wish I’d taken a picture of to share here. The first few months, it said Marxist in large yellow letters on a blue background. Then for another few months, it said Narcissist. Then for the last few months, it said Sleeper.
Would LOVE to know who put up the considerable money for that board - it was f’ing great!!!
I read a comment on the WML ? site where some smurf said “Like it or not he is our President.” I stand with those here who say if they had written the Ad it would have been a lot more disrespectful. But IMO if Barak Hussein Obama is in Washington D.C. he is either in He__ -or perhaps America’s reflection of Sodom.Either way he is in in someplace uninhabitable.(May explain why he takes so many vacations )
Since when does the anti-Semitic race-baiter Jim Moron get to decide what’s disrespectful?
Making movies about killing President Bush.
Yes, he did. I’d like to point out that Moran is not a Virginian but another liberal Northerner put in place by the Democratic Party and supported by the large number of “elites” living but not born in Northern Virginia.
