Georgetown University students are outraged that a Muslim woman was allowed to deliver a speech criticizing Sharia law Tuesday, calling it “Islamophobic” and “hate speech.”
Nonie Darwish, who grew up in Egypt as a Muslim and later fled for the U.S. and Christianity, was invited to speak to the Georgetown University College Republicans (GUCR) group about her latest book, Wholly Different: Why I Chose Biblical Values Over Islamic Values, at an event co-sponsored by the Clare Booth Luce Policy Institute.
So, telling the truth about Sharia Law, which is totalitarian and the relegates women to slave status, not to mention calls for executing Homosexuals, is now immoral to the Left? I think they have hot a new bottom in the Pit of Moral Retardation
Some students, however, denounced the invitation of the “Islamophobic” Darwish, expressing displeasure through an op-ed in the school newspaper, alternative events being organized to coincide with the lecture, and even the resignation of one member of the CR executive board.
Several days before the event, The Georgetown Voice published a piece by undergraduate student Aly Panjwani claiming that by inviting Darwish, the GUCR board gave a platform to “hateful and violent views.”
The op-ed also criticized The Georgetown Review’s invitation of Asra Nomani, a Muslim woman and former Georgetown professor who has been repeatedly harassed by a former colleague for voting for Donald Trump.
Again, all opinions must meet approval of the Leftist Brownshirts. I guess these women just do not know their place. Because, to the Left, free speech is only what they approve of. Like Nazis, Marxists, and Jihadists, these people will decide what rights you have
“My critique of these speakers is not an effort to silence free speech,” Panjwani paradoxically claimed, explaining that “these speakers are not exercising free speech, they are exercising hate speech, a speech of the kind that no organization, especially at Georgetown, should endorse or give a platform to.”
See that folks. The Left will tell you what you can say and what you cannot say. No wonder they are apologists for the evils of Sharia
So, apparently noted director Judd Apatow thinks it is cool to attack people, destroy property, and generally act like rabid animals if they dislike a speaker.
Hollywood director, writer, and producer Judd Apatow warned conservatives on Twitter that last night’s riot at UC Berkeley was “just the beginning,” adding: “When will all the fools who are still supporting Trump realize what is at stake?”
Apatow, who directed The 40 Year Old Virgin, Trainwreck, and Knocked Up, made the threatening tweet after far-left “anti-fascist” rioters assaulted numerous attendees, started fires, smashed up shops and ATMs, and attacked people’s cars at Breitbart Senior Editor MILO’s UC Berkeley show on Wednesday.
Apatow deleted the tweet shortly after, following backlash.
Filmmaker Lexi Alexander also defended the riot on Twitter, encouraging people to “punch Nazis,” “riot when your college invites a Nazi,” and “set it all on fire.”
Well, there you go. Apparently the peaceful, tolerant folks are eager to foment and encourage violence. Odd isn’t it? These folks are the ones acting like Nazis. They are the ones destroying property and assaulting innocent people for “thought crimes”. They are the ones who, should they wish to see a real Fascist, take a long gander in their mirror.
Priceless! Handler starts off saying this, which actually sounds reasonable
“Divisiveness is not the answer,” she explained. “And I think to get that message, we have to reach across party lines, forget your party. I’m registering as an Independent. I’m not gonna be a Democrat anymore because it’s too divisive. This isn’t working, this two-party system.”
OK, so being divisive is NOT the answer. I can agree with that. But I don’t think Handler knows the definition of NOT being divisive because
President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump can save themselves a visit to Chelsea Handler’s talk show, because she won’t speak to them — even if the president himself requested an interview.
“No,” Handler responded flatly when asked by Variety at the Sundance Film Festival if she would ever have Trump, or his wife, on her Netflix talk show. “No. Melania? To talk about what? She can barely speak English.”
When asked what she thought of Melania Trump as the First Lady, Handler said she thought “exactly what I think about him as the First Man. Nothing.”
“I don’t respect either one of those people,” she added.
Well, that whole not being divisive thing lasted what, three seconds? And what of “reaching” across party lines? Eh, not so much I guess. Chelsea you are an ignorant mouth breathing, knuckle dragging bigot. You are at once completely self-absorbed, and completely seemingly unaware that to “reach out” requires you speak with people who do not share your ideology. It also requires you to stop brow beating those people, and that you drop your smug sense of superiority. Oh Chelsea, you are everything that is wrong with the Left. You and people like you are a big reason Trump got elected. But you, you marvelous idiot, are too busy with your self-congratulatory sermon to even recognize that. Some jokes, Chelsea do write themselves
Three students at the University of Puget Sound are appealing their suspension for creating a public shame list called “Bigots of Puget Sound.”
The list, which was discovered in November, accused 22 students and faculty members of being racist, misogynistic, sexist, or transphobic, reports KING 5.
They claim innocence, but their real issue is they never ever expected to be held to their own standards of political correctness
UPS released a statement on Nov. 11 denouncing the list as “deeply disturbing and offensive” and promised to investigate the incident.
“As a community, we place a high value on freedom of speech,” the statement affirmed. “That freedom requires balance and does not extend to speech that violates our harassment policy, our integrity principle, and other policies that affirm the values of our community.”
Ah, the very same “balanced” freedom that these little Stalinists helped create is not so great when they are held to the same standards they insist on.
A university investigation found surveillance footage of Akilah Blakey, Andres Chavez, and Lydia Gebrehiwot that allegedly shows them with the bigot list, resulting in all three students being suspended from campus until 2019 for harassment and disrespectful behavior.
The students still will not admit to creating the list, although they have defended it as a legitimate form of activism and are planning to appeal their punishment.
Ah, but “activism” they cry! Activism, to the Left gives them license to commit character assassination, and to paint anyone who does not bow to them as racist, misogynistic, sexist, or transphobic. The Left, you see has standards, and those standards are only to be applied to, well, any group the Left wishes to persecute. Of course, the Left will never use a term like persecution for their tactics. It is “social justice” or “activism”.
“I think the list itself it’s absolutely a form of activism,” Blakey said. “If the institution isn’t doing what they’re supposed to be doing to protect all of its students, well, something is going to happen if there is no other avenues to express all of the hate that’s going on campus. What do they expect?”
Yes, of course, the snowflakes are the victims here, because “hate”. And, again, don’t you dare say what these three miscreants did was hate, remember it was activism
According to Blakey, the list wasn’t about the individuals named, but rather about the campus climate as a whole, which makes students of color feel marginalized.
See, it was not about the 22 people they labeled as horrible people. Not at all, it was simply a way for the snowflakes to throw a tantrum because they are maladjusted, hateful, and intolerant, ah I mean “activists”.
Frankly, I hope these three will take some time to think, and take a long look in a mirror. Perhaps, just perhaps they can actually grow into people who can use critical thinking rather than blind emotionalism and hatred for anyone different than them. In short, I hope these three can actually realize they are the bigots they accuse “others” of being. Then perhaps, they can do a bit of “activism” in their own lives
And by Vagina I mean this cowardly little excuse for a man. Pirates Cove has the scoop
I guess this is all part of that tolerance and stuff. It would be called a hate crime by the Southern Poverty Law Center and other far left outlets if this was a Trump supporter haranguing a Hillary worker
(UK Daily Mail) Ivanka Trump made it very clear on Thursday that she has no problem staying cool and calm under pressure.
The 35-year-old mother-of-three was travelling with her children to Palm Beach, Florida from New York City on a JetBlue flight when a man began to accost her.
‘Your father is ruining the country,’ said Dan Goldstein, a lawyer from Brooklyn, who had a child in his arms according to TMZ.
Goldstein then began screaming out: ‘Why is she on our flight. She should be flying private.’
Ivanka paid as little attention as possible and tried to preoccupy her children with some crayons to diffuse the situation until the crew escorted him off the plane.
Some might accuse me of gross insensitivity for calling Goldstein a pussy, but really, what kind of man acts like that? Verbally assaulting a woman and children? Those Liberals and their tantrums are quite the spectacle. But, then again, Liberalism is an ideology for spoiled brats and drama queens
