Wisconsin College Bans Students From Posting ‘Never Forget’ 9/11 Posters Due to ‘Anti-Muslim Bias’
YAF Never Forget poster
A Wisconsin college banned students from hanging posters commemorating the anniversary of the September 11th terrorist attacks due to ‘anti-Muslim bias.’
Because that’s the real tragedy here, not the thousands of Americans who were killed on September 11, 2001.
Ripon College banned conservative group ‘Young Americans for Freedom’ from hanging ‘Never Forget’ posters commemorating the anniversary of the September 11 terrorist attacks after Muslims complained.
The private school’s ‘Bias Protocol Board’ said the posters create an “environment” where “students from a Muslim background would feel singled out and/or harassed,” according to YAF.
The ‘Bias Protocol Board’ went further to explain why they objected to the posters and falsely claimed, “because radical Islamist terrorism ‘represents a small percentage of the terrorist attacks that happened to this country, and they don’t represent the full gamut, and they show a very small picture of a specific religion or nationality instead of the larger viewpoint.’”
Young America’s Foundation spox Spencer Brown told Red Alert Politics:
“This attempt by Ripon College’s ‘bias protocol board’ to sanitize the truth out of remembering the anniversary of September 11 proves the necessity of YAF’s iconic 9/11: Never Forget Project, as well as the need for bold YAF activists. YAF’s leadership in creating meaningful memorials on this important date in our nation’s history ensures that the rising generation remembers the 2,977 innocent lives lost. The administrators’ reliance on feelings rather than facts betrays their intention to cower from the truth rather than highlight the scourge of radical Islamist terror for what it is: evil.”
American citizens banned from hanging posters to commemorate the September 11th terrorist attacks should frighten everyone.
This is yet another example of free speech being stifled on college campuses to appease leftists who are apparently offended by everything except Islamic barbarism.
