Marquette University pays for faculty to attend ‘Overcoming Islamophobia’ workshop

It also “will offer a graduate credit for attendees that also submit a written assignment.”

When will Marquette pay faculty to attend a workshop about the ideological and theological roots of jihad terrorism? Why, that would be inconceivable. And so would any honest discussion of the jihad terror threat at Marquette or most, if not all, other universities in the U.S. today, especially Catholic universities. They are radioactive centers of hard-Left indoctrination, not institutions of higher learning in any genuine sense.

The real “Islamophobia” industry, the one dedicated to fooling people into thinking that “Islamophobia” is a genuine problem, operates by deliberately conflating two quite distinct phenomena: vigilante attacks against innocent Muslims, which are rare but never justified under any circumstances, and honest examination of the motivating ideology of jihad terrorists. By lumping the two together, “Islamophobia” victimhood propagandists hope to inhibit all examination of the jihad doctrine, and to demonize and marginalize all those who engage in such examination.

“University Offers To Pay For Faculty Attending ‘Overcoming Islamophobia’ Workshop,” by Rob Shimshock, Daily Caller, July 17, 2017 (thanks to Tom):

A Wisconsin university announced Monday that it will cover costs for its faculty to attend an anti-Islamophobia workshop, and will offer a graduate credit for attendees that also submit a written assignment.

Marquette University will pay the $30 registration fee for faculty that choose to attend “Overcoming Islamophobia: Creating a Positive Classroom Culture,” hosted at Alverno College in August. The fee will also cover lunch at the Islamic Society of Milwaukee.

The event is co-sponsored by the University of Wisconsin-Madison, Alverno College, the Milwaukee Muslim Women’s Coalition and the Islamic Society of Milwaukee. Marquette University will grant attendees that submit a written assignment pertaining to Islamophobia an Alverno graduate credit….

Ideological Tribalism: Graduating Stepford Students

Freedom of speech is foundational. Without freedom of speech there are no other freedoms.

In a stunning new guide to colleges that ranks “a diversity of viewpoints and a culture of free and open discussion” New England colleges and universities are exposed as the most close-minded in a comparison of diversity of political and cultural points of view. Considering that the New England colleges and universities are some of the most prestigious in America and that they graduate future leaders and “authorities,” the study results are particularly disturbing.

Report: New England Colleges Worst in Country for ‘Viewpoint Diversity’

The silencing of Conservative voices on campus is a deliberate strategy to expand the widening echo chamber of left-wing liberal tenets of political correctness, moral relativism, and historical revisionism. Parochial schools are very clear in their mission to educate students in the particular tenets, customs, and ceremonies of their chosen religion. Religious schools freely and unapologetically attempt to perpetuate their religions through education. There is informed consent – the parents and students being fully aware of the purpose of their education.

The problem today is in non-parochial schools because parents believe their children are receiving a secular American education not a parochial education. The reality is that American students from pre-school through college are being indoctrinated in left-wing liberalism by their Leftist teachers. Leftism is the new religious orthodoxy of the Democratic Party and the Democrats are busy proselytizing their religion in the classroom. There is no informed consent and no consumer protections. There is only buyer beware.

Slowly parents are beginning to examine the content of the curricula their children are being exposed to and are rightfully alarmed by the anti-American, anti-establishment, anti-democracy lessons being taught. Their children are being propagandized toward anti-American collectivism and socialism every day all day.

Whoever controls the curriculum controls the future. Indoctrination presented as education is an abuse of power.

When liberal professors outnumber their conservative colleagues 28:1 a culture of ideological tribalism is created and freedom of speech ceases to exist. Conservative voices are silenced because the academic and social tyranny of the Left demands conformity. It is an ideological war that demands submission.

Tyranny cannot tolerate freedom of speech because in ideological wars words are the weapons. The Left is engaged in a very undemocratic effort to silence any voices of opposition. The tribal mind focuses on membership in the tribe as the absolute value which explains the malicious shunning and disparaging of anyone who disagrees. To be in the tribe one must demonstrate loyalty to the tribe and adhere to its cultural norms.

Instead of participating in the proud American tradition of open debate the Leftist leadership of the Democratic Party has adopted the tyranny of censorship, intimidation, and intolerance. Instead of encouraging respectful discourse for the merits of ideas to be debated the Left silences its opponents with its tyrannical demand for compliance to its tenets of political correctness, moral relativism, and historical revisionism. The Leftist orthodoxy silences any heterodoxy. The Democratic Party has devolved into ideological tribalism where membership in the group is determined by adherence to its orthodoxy.

Outside the classroom the left-wing activists organize campus protests where academic cry-bullies shut down buildings and intimidate speakers to silence opposing voices. They demand safe spaces and Play-doh to calm and “protect” them from opposing ideas. These protesters are not burning books because the curriculum has already been censored and manipulated to eliminate opposing ideas. Instead of an education the students are being indoctrinated in the left-wing liberal orthodoxy of political correctness, moral relativism, and historical revisionism designed to produce another generation of Stepford students to join the widening echo chamber of orthodox Leftists who reject any heterodoxy.

Whoever controls the information controls the present. Indoctrination presented as news and information is an abuse of power.

The general public is being similarly indoctrinated because their news and information has been censored to eliminate opposing ideas and to silence opposing voices. The colluding mainstream media moguls of television, movies, print media, and the Internet, all have common cause to participate in the echo chamber of manipulative information designed to indoctrinate the public into accepting their left-wing liberal orthodoxy.

What is the purpose of the ideological tribalism of the Democratic Party? Just like the student curricula the public indoctrination by the leftist Democratic Party is part of the widening echo chamber designed to transform American democracy into socialism.

The Left organizes content designed to break down traditional American cultural norms that encourage individualism, achievement, the meritocracy, and critical thinking skills. The Leftist narrative promotes collectivism and passivity to produce an unaware and compliant public. The Leftist Democratic Party in America supports or is an apologist for Linda Sarsour, BDS, FGM, open-borders, illegal immigration, sanctuary cities, and the fiction that Islam is a religion like any other.

Instead of news and information the general public is being indoctrinated in the left-wing liberal orthodoxy of political correctness, moral relativism, and historical revisionism designed to produce an unthinking Stepford population who will join the ever-widening echo chamber of orthodox Leftists who reject any heterodoxy.

Consider the long term effects of their echo chamber that begins in kindergarten, continues throughout college, graduates Stepford students who become leaders and “authorities” in government, politics, academia, Internet, media, statistics, books, art, medicine, law, theater, movies, every sphere that influences American life. WHY?

Because the globalist elite mega-moguls and their mega-corporations have a long term plan. They are using the echo chamber of Leftists as useful idiots to create the social chaos and divisiveness necessary to destroy American democracy and replace it with socialism. Socialism’s complete cradle-to-grave government control is the prerequisite for the globalist elite’s own one-world government that features an unrestricted world market for their goods and a binary socio-political system of masters (the globalist elite) and their enslaved population (everyone else).

The ideological tribalism of the Leftist Democrat Party that graduates Stepford students and disinforms the public to become Stepford voters is a boomerang. Ideological tribalism will be used against the useful idiots by the globalist elite who will ultimately impose one-world government and enslave them all. There is no place for Leftist agitators in one-world government – there is only room for Stepford slaves.

VIDEO EXPOSE: Is Hatem Bazian the most dangerous professor in America?

Today we released a damning new exposé on the man behind Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) and American Muslims for Palestine (AMP), Professor Hatem Bazian.

Nablus-born Hatem Bazian is the founder of radical organizations Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) and American Muslims for Palestine (AMP). He calls for intifada [violent uprising] in the USA, has a ‘project’ to re-write history, blames Jews for both Islamophobia and anti-semitism and spreads anti-semitic conspiracy theories.

Is Hatem Bazian the most dangerous professor in the USA?

REPORT: CanaryMission.org/hatem-bazian/

We expose that Nablus-born Hatem Bazian:

  • Calls for intifada [violent uprising] in the USA
  • Has a ‘project’ to re-write history
  • Blames Jews for both Islamophobia and anti-semitism
  • Spreads anti-Semitic conspiracy theories

Canary Mission, has documented over 1300 students and professors promoting hatred of the USA, Israel and the Jewish people, on North American college campuses. Almost all of them have been influenced by University of California, Berkeley Professor Bazian.

Bazian’s brainchild, SJP, which he started in 2001, has spread his anti-American, anti-Jewish, pro-terrorist rhetoric onto now over 190 North American campuses.
Considering the extent of his influence, the danger has gone largely unnoticed by the general public.

We need your help! Please promote these videos and the report through social media, email, newsletters, to your local media outlets and community organizations. Help us create awareness of Bazian’s agenda.

University of Hawaii professor: ‘I don’t trust white people..they need to lose more…only hire white trannies’

University Prof: ‘I Don’t Trust White People,’ They ‘Need To Lose More’

by Rob Shimshock, Daily Caller, July 1, 2017

The University of Hawaii professor who wanted universities to stop hiring white men also said “I don’t trust white people” and “cis het white people need to lose more,” according to screenshots obtained Friday by The Daily Caller News Foundation.

Piper Harron, a temporary assistant math professor at the University of Hawaii at Manoa, made these remarks and others on Facebook in May and June 2017.

“I need to take a long break from disagreeing with white people,” Harron wrote in May. “Their Have You Considereds have worn me down and I’m showing signs of weakness. If you wanna know why I don’t trust white people, it’s because of what that trust costs me.”

“Cis white het people need to lose more,” she commented the next day. “Cis het white people don’t know how to not be in control. They want to even control their dismantling of privilege.”

“As long as police are trained to murder, they will never be convicted,” said Harron in another June Facebook post.

The professor equated the ideas that women might not be interested in leadership, STEM or sports and that autism warrants concern to “violence” in a lengthy June Facebook post.

“I shouldn’t have to argue at all let alone nicely against these ideas,” said Harron. “These are ‘ideas’ I shouldn’t even come across. That these ‘ideas’ are everywhere is violence. Asking me to treat them as innocent is violence.”

The professor also equated perceived failure of the justice system to perceived failure of slavery, remarking that “white justice can *never* be just. We can’t afford to forget that.”

The math professor previously said, “If you are a cis white man (meaning you identify as male and you were assigned male at birth) you almost certainly should resign from your position of power” in a May essay.

“The opinions of individual faculty members ​exercising their personal free speech rights do not represent the positions of the University of Hawaii,” said Dan Meisenzahl, spokesman for the university, in an email to TheDCNF. “Furthermore, the University of Hawaii prohibits discrimination against students and employees based on gender, ethnicity and/or religion, which is also stated plainly in our policies. Any report of discrimination will be investigated and addressed in accordance with our policies and procedures.”

Meisenzahl also directed TheDCNF to a message sent from University of Hawaii president David Lassner to the college community in which the president expressed similar sentiments.

TheDCNF reached out to Harron for comment, but received none in time for publication.

EDITORS NOTE: Dr. Piper Harron is a Professor of Mathematics at the University of Hawaii. Harron wrote an article about how white, male professors should resign or take a demotion in order to improve diversity. Harron wrote,

“If you are a white cis man (meaning you identify as male and you were assigned male at birth) you almost certainly should resign from your position of power. That’s right, please quit. Too difficult? Well, as a first step, at least get off your hiring committee, your curriculum committee, and make sure you’re replaced by a woman of color or trans person.”

She also wrote,

“What can universities do? Well, that’s easier. Stop hiring white cis men (except as needed to get/retain people who are not white cis men) until the problem goes away. If you think this is a bad or un-serious idea, your sexism/racism/transphobia is showing.”

America’s New Normal

  • Everything is connected
  • Everything happens for a reason
  • Nothing is random
  • Everything is planned
  • EVERYTHING IS A LIE

Lies, Lies and more Lies. The Democrat Party is unraveling before our eyes.  How can anyone trust anything they say?  Why all the lies?  These stories have been created so you will not pay attention. The name of the game is: Deflect.  If Russian conspiracies, victimhood, violence and hatred are the new normal, actual accomplishments do not have to be mentioned.  Besides all GOP changes are evil. No debate.

My head hurts, How did this happen?

Let’s connect a few dots.

Lying is a behavior now acceptable by communists/Globalists throughout  government and business. We watched Obama and the entire administration lie and nothing was done. No consequences.  What a great message to tell our kids, future elected officials and government employees?  You have to be taught to lie.

Remember Bill Ayers the terrorist. Go do a search.  You will not find derogatory information. Instead you will find Bill justifying his actions. Lying while condoning violence.  Today Bill is a college professor and contributor to the new American history texts.  If your next guess is that the texts subliminally condone violence, you would be correct.  Former communist dictators, thugs are the new heroes.  In the last phase of communism, the communists/globalists reveal themselves.  They bring all phases together to gain control.  Attacks on all American walks of life must be created, chaos must follow for out of the chaos the people will call for them to make the hurt go away. The people will be willing to give their power to the government.  Using this technique we got the Patriot Act, the NDAA and our K-16 schools teach victimhood and hate. You have to be taught to be a victim and how to express your hate.

Education is not about learning. It is about training all people to think the same.  People who thing the same are easier to control.  People who think the same require less resources from their government. Lenin said those less educated require less resources…  Those that think differently, “Kill Them”. Actually ,let ISIS do the killing, blood on their hands.”  Just trace any dictator.  They are all the same.   They kill millions of people to make sure those left, comply.  You have to be taught to accept violence.

This past weekend, I listened to an Oldies station with songs from the 60s, 70s, 80s.   Do you realize how many songs would be banned from the radio today due to PC?  I listened to songs of love and even some with messages about government evil.  No songs of hate like today.  Why did I bring that up?  Look at the ages if the Dem leadership.  They were suckered in with promises of love and were taught how to hate.

How did they get a nation to accept Lies, Victimhood, Hatred and Violence?

By controlling K-16 education and influencing vulnerable students through music, and media.  The communists/globalists of today learned from their past leaders.  But if all of this influencing is contrary to American values, how did those leaders get here?  Look up Operation Paperclip, a  program in which more than 1,600 German scientists, engineers, educators and technicians (many of whom were formerly registered members of the Nazi Party and some of whom had leadership roles in the Nazi Party), including Wernher von Braun‘s rocket team, were recruited and brought to the United States for government employment from post-Nazi Germany.  They were brought to America by a joint intelligence team (of idiots) FBI, CIA etc.

A communist who is a scientist, engineer, educator IS STILL A COMMUNIST.  What did the lack of intelligence taskforce think would happen?  Oh they didn’t think.   What do communists do? LIE, create Victims, Promote Violence and Hatred in order to recruit more communists/globalists. Their program is the opposite of American exceptionalism.They train others to believe  anyone who does not carry the same viewpoint is EVIL.  They use a variety of psychological manipulative techniques to “capture “ their audience. But first they had to “get the teachers in line.”

Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.” – Vladimir Lenin

In the 1960’s college students were coerced into teaching.  The teaching profession was the draft exempt job created to avoid the Vietnam War. Gramschi, Skinner were the authors of educational policy Dewey used to create “Modern Education.”  Unsuspecting college students were forced to participate in experimental learning concepts based on the psychological manipulation Dewey loved.  These techniques were taught in the New School of Social Research, in Greenwich Village, NYC. to potential teachers.  I attended that school.  All of these programs have failed and the unsuspecting students suffered as the purpose of education was changed from reading, writing, arithmetic to feel good social programs rooted in the Freudian, socialist, Marxist mentors of Dewey.   I was one of these students who later became a teacher. I refused to follow the curricula.  When I started teaching America was in the top 10 in the world.  Today we range from 27-38th.  Great job for the communist/globalist educators.

The constant lying is a perfect example of Psychological Projection, one of Freud’s favorites.  Fraud loved and promoted blame shifting.  Hillary has this down like a master.  In order to be a good liar, you have to have inside knowledge of the deed, the steps involved.  That is why Dems can run around yelling Russian Collusion.  They were involved in Russian collusion so they know what to expect. You project your trait on your opponent and build a case against them because you know how it works. Another example might be spousal abuse.  Too often projected as the abuser yells, you make me do this to you….  (special thank you to historian and author , William Federer for this reminder.)

The Hegelian Dialectic, use to pass the Patriot Act and NDAA uses for violence calling for surveillance; after all the ends justify the means. A crisis must be created so people will scream for the solution. The government can come in with more control. Often the control is not the answer; it is just for control.

Cognitive Dissonance confuses the individual as they seek order trying to make sense of their beliefs.  Example: How did all of these globalists/ Hollywood elites  make money?  Through some form of capitalism.  Then why do they scream that capitalism is evil?

“The Capitalists will sell us the rope with which we will hang them.” – Lenin

Example: Why are scientists telling us that CO2 must be phased out when plants (our food) needs CO2 to thrive? Aren’t we killing our food supply? Could it be because one goal is depopulation.  Why depopulation? We are told because we don’t have enough food to feed all of the people.  Wait a minute, does this make sense?  It only does if you want millions dead so you will have less to control.

Group Think keeps dissenters in line. They were trained in Kindergarten that the government knows best, don’t speak out or be different.

How can you get millions of people to follow you?  You lie to them. This technique is called Deconstruction. This is a play with words and meanings so meanings can be shifted to suit the group.  The Negative becomes the Positive so it can be neutralized.  The terrorist act becomes workplace violence.  Eventually violence become acceptable until the people lay down their arms for peace.

Today we are in a battle for America. Fortunately Americans are beginning to see that being an American (the largest group of free people in the world, takes prescient over all other groups. United we WIN. The communist/globalist have thrown everything they have in this last and most destructive phase. Human life has no meaning the only thing that counts is Money, Power, Control. They need violence, division and controlled communication to continue their agenda. There is only one acceptable outcome. They must be in control. Trillions are at stake.

Where does acceptance of lying become acceptable?

Common Core type education is called for in Agenda 21, Chapter 25.

This Federal mandate promotes one size fits all training now called education to benefit the businesses favored by government. The focus is on training to work whereby students are tracked early on and selected for certain favored government/corporate jobs in the future. This Outcome Based Education (aka Mastery Learning) breeds lying.  The answer is known in the beginning so the method and procedure is often tainted – made up – lies so that the answer will come out as pre-described. Scientists paid to produce man made global warming data manipulate the data so the outcome will be as the government decides. Political correctness stifles any discourse.

Facts are no longer relevant.  So if we have been teaching our kids to lie in school, why are we surprised they grow up to be liars?  You have to be taught to lie.
If we immerse them in victimhood, why are surprised that they feel they are victims?  When they learn anti-American, anti family, and anti God dribble, focused on the opposition (Whites) as evil, you can predict the outcome.

Students learn to be Global Citizens.  What is a Global citizen? A world citizen with allegiance to no nation only to a government/business who is in charge of the region in which they live. This unaccountable NGO’s will regulate Americans with more lies.   We had a taste of this type of economy under Obama.

Where do the lies come from?   Although the idea of CCS is bad, the real problem is the content of the materials the students read. Do you ever check what your family reads? Too many of us do not pay attention. Therefore the content of many school materials are unnoticed although they are written by EU socialists with a Muslim Bias.  I personally believe that the Muslims own shares of many textbook companies. Below are a few of lies that are instilled in your children at their government school:

  • Communism is held in the most favorable light while the true history of communism is ignored.
  • Capitalism is touted as selfish while the facts and history are ignored.
  • Children learn in clusters and are only as good as their group while individualism is shunned.
  • Cursive is out – eliminates individualism and the ability to read many of our founding documents.
  • American history is taught from 1865 – the reconstruction or progressive era.
  • The National Data base collects about 400 data fields of an intrusive data base has no cost attached in order to determine what future your child will have..

CCS is an unconstitutional, unproved fad that will benefit the providers (Gates, Bush, Kipp, Broad, Pearson) as businesses no longer needing to “train” their workers since the responsibility of worker training is shifted from the business to “We the Taxpayer”. Wealth redistribution at its finest.

CCS is consensus not fact (truth) based, so where do kids learn facts?

They don’t. Instead students are taught values of communists, progressives and extreme environmentalists and we are surprised that they grow up become legislators and lie.

As bad as lying is, the acceptance of lies is worse. Policy is made surrounding lies.  The oops created as these policies collapse is extremely expensive.

To make matters worse, Common Core Standards (CCS) uses outcome-based education and the Skinner/Pavlov stimulus-response method of indoctrination.  This method takes away the individual’s ability to think as the responses are largely emotional.  Stimulating only the emotional part of the brain eliminates the person’s ability to use logic, reason and cognitive thinking in problem solving.  Therefore, the person is forced to rely on choices provided by the government which we now know are lies.  The government nudges the person into the acceptable response creating a society of bobble heads only capable of saying, “yes master”. These “choices” become subliminal messages that the media uses to promote ideas and issues while eliciting desired responses from the people.

As the silent majority follows directions by not talking about opposing issues and being politically correct, we continue to perpetuate the lies.

Now is the time, it is up to,  “We The People.”  Call Congress relentlessly.  If we want to get rid of this corrupt America hating regime, Call, Call, Call your Representatives and call the administration. Go to your school board meetings. Demand to see what the kids read.  Run for office and support others; NOT THE PARTIES. Spend your money on businesses that support your values. POST your findings.

If we do not keep up the pressure, we are doomed to be governed by our inferiors.  Talk to others. NEVER stop spreading the truth.

Will you stand up? Will you stop accepting the lies?

I will not comply. Will you?

San Francisco State University sued for fostering hostile environment for Jewish students

“In particular, the suit accuses university administrators and police of being complicit in disruption of a speech last year by Nir Barkat, the mayor of Jerusalem. According to the suit, students and attendees were met with protesters shouting offensive chants and blaring bullhorns while school officials instructed campus police not to intervene.”

It is very likely that university administrators and police were complicit in this. At the University at Buffalo in April, university administrators and police did nothing while Leftist and Muslim protesters shouted me down for an hour and a half. They don’t want to face the wrath of the Leftist and Muslim students, and they agree with them anyway.

“San Francisco State University fosters anti-Semitism, lawsuit alleges,” by Emily DeRuy, Bay Area News Group, June 19, 2017:

Students and other members of the local Jewish community allege that San Francisco State University is anti-Semitic, according to a lawsuit filed Monday.

“SFSU and its administrators have knowingly fostered this discrimination and hostile environment, which has been marked by violent threats to the safety of Jewish students on campus,” reads the suit, which also names California State University’s Board of Trustees and other university employees as defendants.

The suit alleges that San Francisco State has “repeatedly denied” Jewish student groups, including Hillel and the Jewish fraternity Alpha Epsilon Pi, equal access to campus events.

In particular, the suit accuses university administrators and police of being complicit in disruption of a speech last year by Nir Barkat, the mayor of Jerusalem. According to the suit, students and attendees were met with protesters shouting offensive chants and blaring bullhorns while school officials instructed campus police not to intervene.

“These defendants seem to believe that they are above the law, that discrimination against Jews is entirely acceptable, and that their response to criticism must go only so far as to placate Jewish donors,” said Amanda Berman, director of legal affairs for the Lawfare Project, which is representing the plaintiffs, in a statement….

LGBT Groups: Christians ‘Have No Place in Government’

In a Christian Post column Samuel Smith reports:

LGBT activist groups are outraged that the Trump administration’s Department of Education invited speakers from two prominent conservative Christian family organizations to participate in a panel discussion on fatherhood held in advance of Father’s Day last week.

Politico reports that experts from the Family Research Council and Focus on the Family were invited to speak at a day-long conference hosted by the Education Department that addressed how fathers can be engaged in their children’s lives.

Both FRC, headed by Tony Perkins, and Focus on the Family, led by Jim Daly and founded by James Dobson, are known for advocating in accordance with biblical beliefs on sexuality and the belief that marriage is only a union between one man and one woman.

However, the pro-LGBT advocacy group Human Rights Campaign believes that the organization’s’ beliefs in traditional marriage and opposition to same-sex marriage should make their employees disqualified from being given a government-funded platform to voice their views on marriage and family.

This sentiment was echoed by Senator Bernie Sanders during the questioning of Russell Vought, who was nominated by President Donald Trump to be Deputy Director of the Office of Management and Budget:

The First Amendment to the Constitution reads:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

Groups like the Family Research Council and Focus on the family and individuals like Russell Vought, are exercising their right to exercise their Christian religion.

GLAAD has labeled the Family Research Council and Focus on the Family “anti-LGBTQ hate groups.” In April 2017 the National Organization for Marriage (NOM) had their Free Speech bus damaged. According to NOM:

LGBT extremists did everything in their power to prevent us from completing the #FreeSpeechBus tour to promote a national conversation on the biological nature of gender – including engaging in violence, property damage and acts of intolerance, as well as coordinating with anarchist groups – but I’m pleased to say that we overcame them and completed the tour this morning in Washington, DC.

NOM joined with CitizenGO and the International Organization for the Family (IOF) to sponsor the tour as a way of provoking a national discussion about the biological truth of gender and to hit “pause” on the headlong push by the left to redefine gender based on “identity” and “feelings.” Throughout the tour we encountered the ugly side of the LGBT movement, which repeatedly engaged in violence and assault, and inflicted substantial property damage, in a failed effort to derail the bus tour.

Shockingly, we also discovered the deep coordination that exists between Democratic politicians, LGBT groups and extremists, including anarchists who are bent on destroying civil society.

America’s public schools, via homosexual groups like the Gay, Lesbian, Straight, Education Network (GLSEN), have worked to recruit America’s youth to the homosexual lifestyle. GLSEN has used the mantra of bullying and ideology of diversity to gain access to our most vulnerable, our prepubescent children.

VIDEO: Dr. Sharifa Alkhateeb in 2009 states the goal of Muslim Education is to make America Muslim

Sharifa Alkhateeb

Below is a C-SPAN video from 1989 taken at a conference hosted by the Islamic Society of North America featuring Sharifa Alkhateeb, a Muslim educator. In the video Alkhateeb shares the ultimate goal of Muslim education in America.

Alkhateeb states the objective of Muslim education in America is to make all of America Muslim.

According to Discover the Networks:

The Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) was established in July 1981 by U.S-based members of the Muslim Brotherhood who also had a background as leaders of the Muslim Students Association (MSA). As author and terrorism expert Steven Emerson puts it, ISNA “grew out of the Muslim Students Association, which … was founded by Brotherhood members.” Indeed, Muslim Brothers would dominate ISNA’s leadership throughout its early years, when the Society was highly dependent upon Saudi funding. ISNA’s founding mission was “to advance the cause of Islam and serve Muslims in North America so as to enable them to adopt Islam as a complete way of life.”

On October 29, 2016 the Independent Sentinel reported:

Sharifa Alkhateeb was a friend of Huma Abedin’s and Hillary Clinton’s but she died of cancer in 2004. She referred to herself as a feminist and was an advocate for establishing Muslim culture in America and making America Muslim. She encouraged other Muslims to have patience setting up “our own Islam systems” and to think of all Americans as potential Muslims.

An active member of the Muslim Students Association in the 1960s, she last served as president of the North American Council for Muslim Women in northern Virginia. Both organizations are tied to Hamas.

[ … ]

She worked with US Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton to allegedly forge ties with other religious communities.

Alkhateeb was born and reared in the United States by immigrant parents–her father is from Yemen and her mother is from Czechoslovakia.

Hillary invited her to the White House in 1999 for a NARA conference when she was first lady. The event was organized by Huma Abedin.

During her address, Hillary said: “Sharifa Alkhateeb of the North American Council for Muslim Women has been largely responsible for working with the White House staff in bringing us here. As many of you may know, Sharifa was the chair of the Muslim Caucus in Beijing in 1995. And she is also a great friend to me and to my staff for many, many occasions when we call upon her for advice and counsel. And I am pleased that once again she could be so helpful, both on her own behalf and on behalf of the Council in helping us out.”

Muslim education has become standardized in public school textbooks, in America’s college and university departments of Middle East studies. Alkhateeb’s vision is bearing fruit today as American children are being indoctrinated to embrace Islam and become followers of Mohammed.

Lawsuit Against Collier School Board To Halt Political Indoctrination Of Students

When it comes to our children and their future, “Where is your line in the sand?”  FLCA has found ours, and we invite you to join with us.

After two years of trying to get the Collier School board to do the right thing, we are suing the Collier County School Board for violating Florida Sunshine law and multiple statutes that require them to teach our founding values and principles, and which require balanced, unbiased and factual material (see a copy of the filed complaint).  We issued a press release about the lawsuit on May 31st.  Here’s an excerpt from the press release:

Florida Citizens Alliance has decided,  “Enough is enough!”  We are now an active participant along with Collier parents in a lawsuit for an emergency injunction to stop this “flawed” textbook adoption process. This lawsuit was filed today, May 31st , 2017 in The Circuit Court for the 20th Judicial Circuit in and for Collier County. The Collier County School Board (CCPS) has violated Florida Sunshine Law and ignored at least four Florida statutes, all at the expense of our 46,000 plus students who deserve the “highest quality .instructional materials of professionalism and historical accuracy”.  Quote: FS 1003.42

[Full press release]

We strongly believe the School Board here in Collier County has violated Chapter 128, Florida’s sunshine law and at least four other Florida Statutes including FS 1003.42, FS 1006.28, FS 1006.31(2), and FS 1006.283.

UPDATE:video clips from the Collier County Public Schools “Special Hearing” meeting on June 1, 2017 show clearly that CCPS is NOT interested in community and parental input, nor are they interested in following Florida law.

School Kids Fidget Because They Feel Trapped by Kerry McDonald

You’ve likely seen the headlines lately regarding the latest fad frenzy: fidget toys. These toys, most popularly fidget spinners and fidget cubes, are simple gadgets that have taken over schools and classrooms across the country, to the point that they are now being banned by many of them.

Initially touted as a concentration tool for children with attention issues, these hand-held fidget toys are apparently becoming distracting for teachers and disruptive to classrooms. In a recent Working Mother article, 6th grade teacher, Cristina Bolusi Zawacki, writes:

Fidget spinners: The very phrase makes me cringe. Its claim to fame is that it allows one to channel their excess energy to help maintain focus. The only thing my students seem to focus on, however, is the spinner, itself, and not their work. It’s like a friggin’ siren song. The allure of someone else’s spinner spinning is too much to bear.”

The teacher goes on to ask:

How is it that my 2-year-old is able to sit long enough to fill the pages of an entire coloring book, yet adolescent students cannot function without these helicopters of distraction whirling feverishly on their fingertips? Mind you, these are the same kids who can sit and text for hours, spend incalculable amounts of time on social media, and take enough selfies in one sitting to carpet The Cloisters.”

Learning to Avoid Work

Perhaps the problem is not the fidget toys but the lack of autonomy, self-direction, and relevance characteristic of the mass schooling model that gives rise to the fidget toy craze. Boston College psychology professor and author of Free To Learn, Peter Gray, writes that all children love to learn and eagerly explore their world with enthusiasm and great dedication – until they go to school.

In his research on unschoolers and others who have rejected mass schooling for alternative forms of education, Dr. Gray discovered that human curiosity and commitment to learning endure beyond early childhood. He writes:

This amazing drive and capacity to learn does not turn itself off when children turn 5 or 6. We turn it off with our coercive system of schooling. The biggest, most enduring lesson of our system of schooling is that learning is work, to be avoided when possible.”

Dr. Gray’s observation is not new. Decades ago, the well-known educator and homeschooling advocate, John Holt, wrote in his best-selling book, How Children Learn:

We like to say that we send children to school to teach them to think. What we do, all too often, is to teach them to think badly, to give up a natural and powerful way of thinking in favor of a method that does not work for them and that we rarely use ourselves. Worse than that, we convince most of them that, at least in a school setting, or any situation where words or symbols or abstract thought are concerned, they can’t think at all.”

Relief from Educational Tedium

Through the process of mass schooling, childhood curiosity and exuberance for learning are steadily replaced by a system of social control that teaches children that their interests and observations don’t matter. Is it any wonder that within this educational framework young people would gravitate toward behaviors, like fidget spinning, that grant them some semblance of freedom and control in the classroom?

For adolescents, like those with whom the teacher quoted above interacts, fidget toys likely provide much-needed relief from the tedium and artificiality of mass schooling. Largely cut-off from the authentic adult world in which they are meant to come of age, adolescents immerse themselves in behaviors that grant them some degree of control and autonomy that are otherwise absent from their daily lives.

Playing video games in which they are in charge, participating in social media, and texting friends are all examples of adolescents seeking freedom, engagement, and usefulness within a culture that does not provide many authentic opportunities to do so.

In their book, Escaping the Endless Adolescence, psychologists Joseph and Claudia Allen conclude:

There’s been a gradual, insidious change occurring in the very nature of adolescence over the past several generations – a change that has been stripping this period of meaningful work and of exposure to adult challenges and rewards, and undermining our teens’ development in the process.”

Rather than complaining about this latest fad, and banning these fidget toys from schools across the country, we should look more closely at what the toys reveal: Children and adolescents who are bored with and frustrated by the irrelevance of mass schooling and who crave education freedom and autonomy.

Education models, separate from mass schooling, already exist and are wildly successful at retaining childhood curiosity and promoting academic excellence. Perhaps these fidget toys can help turn our attention to those alternatives.

Anarchy in Academia: Cry-Bullies Gone Wild

The recent events at Evergreen College would make a great Saturday Night Live skit if they weren’t so serious and such an alarming portent of future social chaos.

Academia trains the future leaders of society – if colleges and universities are breeding racist anarchist cry-bullies instead of thoughtful leaders who can listen to other points of view, the future for America is tyranny of thought and totalitarianism.

The racist and infantile demands of the Evergreen students expose the childishness of cry-bully functioning. Like two-year-olds screaming “I WANT WHAT I WANT WHEN I WANT IT” these student outbursts create cognitive dissonance for any rational adult watching. There is a sense of unreality that “this cannot be happening on campuses in America” – but it is happening all over the country at colleges and universities where cry-bullies have gone wild.

What is the source of their tantrums? Why are they being tolerated by the “adults” in charge? What is the purpose of cry-bullying outbursts?

The complete self-absorption of infants and young children is an expected condition of infancy and early childhood. There is no “other” in their consciousness – they operate on the narcissistic principle of self. When that narcissism is advanced into adulthood it is not only shocking it is dangerous. Early childhood is distinguished by its narcissism and society’s acceptance of that narcissism because growing up is a process and early childhood is the beginning of the process.

The first sign of emotional development is the baby’s recognition of “other.” The baby begins to recognize his mother/caretaker as separate from himself. The baby learns that if he cries mother will come to him. As he gets older the child realizes that he is dependent upon the care of the “other” and the child only experiences ”other” as existing to meet his/her own needs.

Only when the child begins to understand that “other” exists as a separate self who is as important as his own self as the child is to himself can the concept of reciprocity develop and ethical living begin.

What is so stunning about the behavior of cry-bullies on campus is their complete unawareness of “other.” Their infantile narcissism keeps them insulated in a prism of self. They do not see the staggering hypocrisy of ordering all white students and faculty off campus. If all black students and faculty were ordered off campus the cry-bullies would go wild screaming RACISM! Cry-bullies do not see the hypocrisy of demanding respect when they behave so disrespectfully. If professors started screaming and swearing at them the cry-bullies would go wild demanding SAFE SPACES! Cry-bullies do not see the hypocrisy of demanding no homework at an academic institution.

The long-term consequences of a narcissistic perspective advanced into adulthood is that it is self-destructive. Thought precedes behavior. If an individual thinks like a child he/she behaves like a child. Childhood is distinguished by its powerlessness. Thinking like a child produces a victim mentality of blame and powerlessness that creates cry-bullies and temper tantrums instead of self-actualized adults capable of rational thought and constructive effective change.

The question is WHY would the “adults” in charge submit to the childish demands of a two-year-old? Why do ineffectual parents submit to the demands of their two-year-old?

Some are simply intimidated by the cry-bullying. Some are emotional children themselves and actually support cry-bullying. Some want to ingratiate themselves to the cry-bully and be their friend. Some are Leftists promoting anarchy. No matter what the motive, submitting to the demands of a two-year—old whether that child is chronologically two or emotionally two is a flawed strategy for the survival of a democratic America.

Parents need their children to grow into emotional adulthood and society needs its citizens to become emotional adults. A society of children is not sustainable – it will eventually collapse or be challenged and taken over by a society of adults. This is why the social chaos created on campus and advanced into society by the graduating cry-bullies is so dangerous.

Social chaos is the condition necessary to collapse American democracy and replace it with socialism -> internationalism -> globalism -> and ultimately one-world government ruled by the globalist elite. Social chaos is the agent of change for anarchists.

American campuses need an adult in charge to fend off the infantile demands of its cry-bully students. America needs adults an charge to fend off the infantile demands of the left-wing liberals promoting anarchy and the victim mentality of identity politics. American universities are the canary in the coal mine.

Candidate Hillary Clinton famously said that they (Democrats) need a public that is unaware and compliant. Unaware and compliant are the conditions of childhood. Children are powerless and can be exploited and controlled – exactly what Hillary wanted. When Hillary was unexpectedly defeated the Left went into overdrive to delegitimize, destabilize, and destroy Trump’s presidency. The “resistance” movement lead by EX-president Barack Obama is an attack on American democracy.

Americans voted for an adult when they voted for Donald Trump. If the Left and their cry-bully politicians fomenting anarchy succeed in their campaign to overthrow constitutionally elected President Donald Trump then American democracy will be destroyed and the globalist elites will be able to impose one-world government on the unsuspecting cry-bullies on campus who were duped into believing they would get social justice and income equality for their efforts.

One-world government is a binary socio-political system of masters and slaves described unapologetically in chilling detail by Lord Bertrand Russell in his 1952 book The Impact of Science on Society. The irony for these black student cry-bullies is that they are participating in their own destruction. There is no freedom or upward mobility in one-world government – only tyranny and totalitarianism.

The student cry-bullies will learn the hard way that their infantile behavior will reduce them to slaves like their ancestors.

Lawsuit filed to Stop the Political Indoctrination of Collier County, Florida Students

Collier County, FL – Florida Citizens Alliance has decided, “Enough is enough!”  We are now an active participant along with Collier parents in a lawsuit for an emergency injunction to stop this “flawed” textbook adoption process. This lawsuit was filed today, May 31st, 2017 in The Circuit Court for the 20th Judicial Circuit in and for Collier County (see a copy of the filed complaint).

The Collier County School Board (CCPS) has violated Florida Sunshine Law and ignored at least four  Florida statutes, all at the expense of our 46,000 plus students who deserve the “highest quality instructional materials of professionalism and historical accuracy”. Quote: FS 1003.42

We strongly believe the School Board here in Collier County has violated Chapter 128, Florida’s sunshine law and at least four other Florida Statutes including FS 1003.42, FS 1006.28, FS 1006.31(2), and FS 1006.283.

As parents, grandparent and taxpaying community members, we demand that the Collier School Board pause the current process and start the adoption process over on June 1st for three overriding reasons:

  1. The text book adoption process, that the prior board authorized and that has been used under  the current Board’s supervision, violates Florida Sunshine law (Chapter 286 of the Florida Statutes).
  2. This process included hand-picked reviewers with an extreme political bias. Many of these reviewers do NOT represent Collier demographics and have turned this process into biased and political indoctrination.
  3. The Social Studies materials Collier School Board members are considering to adopt are riddled with violations of several Florida laws including FS 1003.42, FS 1006.28, FS 1006.31(2), and FS 1006.283.

To approve both the process and any of the materials considered….we repeat, any of these materials, the Collier School Board not only violates the School Board’s legal/constitutional responsibility but also is fiducially a major waste of budget and taxpayer money.

THIS IS NOT A PARTISAN ISSUE. IT IS ABOUT OUR CHILDREN’S FUTURE, following FLORIDA LAWS and adopting FACTUAL, UNBIASED TEXTBOOKS that are not used to indoctrinate our children.

This is three year adoption process. There is no rush and the process can be corrected by following Florida laws.

Reluctantly, after numerous and varied interactions to get Collier School Board members to honor Florida Statutes, we have concluded that our only course of action is to seek an emergency injunction to stop this injustice to each and every student, parent and community member in Collier County.

According to Florida Statute, the Collier School Board is constitutionally responsible for the Instructional materials- NOT the Superintendent, NOT the FL Dept. of Education!

Alt-left: ‘Rioting … or physically attacking a conservative speaker are not enough’

Now the Left is trying to kill us. And more is to come. A good piece from my friend Thomas Craughwell in the American Spectator on my being poisoned last week in Iceland:

“Ecstasy on Ice — But Not the Good Kind,” by Thomas J. Craughwell, American Spectator, May 19, 2017:

Somebody just tried to poison one of my friends.

You may know him. He’s Robert Spencer, the director of the news-and-commentary blog JihadWatch and author of two New York Times bestsellers, The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam (and the Crusades) and The Truth About Muhammed. He appears pretty regularly on cable news as an expert on Islamist terrorism, and he’s led seminars on jihad for the FBI, the United States Central Command, and the Joint Terrorism Task Force, among others. Robert also gets a lot of speaking engagements. His most recent event was in Reykjavik, Iceland, and that’s where someone laced his drink with something nasty….

Art Moore, writing for World Net Daily, reports that doctors at the Reykjavik hospital found Robert tested “positive for amphetamine and MDMA.” MDMA is a synthetic drug commonly known as Ecstasy or Molly. A high dose of MDMA can cause liver, kidney, or heart failure and may even be fatal. The drug is commonly available in tablet or capsule form, but it is also available as crystals, a powder, or a liquid. Those last three options would be the easiest to slip into someone’s drink….

Among our friends on the left, Robert Spencer is not a popular guy. For years, he has been exposing Islamist extremists who have launched terror attack after terror attack across the globe. And he has made the case that in the eyes of the terrorists, they are doing Allah’s work because there are verses in the Koran and other sacred Islamic texts that approve of attacking infidels. Christians and Jews and every other non-Islamic religion fall into the infidel category. But as we continue to see in Iraq and Syria, ISIS also targets Muslims who, from the terrorists’ point of view, are the wrong kind of Muslims.Nonetheless, Robert has been denounced as a hate monger by the Southern Poverty Law Center, his books are banned in Muslim-majority nations, and in 2013 the British Home Office barred Robert from traveling to the U.K. for any speaking event. When he appealed the ban in court, the British Court of Appeals dismissed his case, arguing that “this was a public order case where the police had advised that significant public disorder and serious violence might ensue from the proposed visit.”

It’s only May, but already we’ve seen some ugliness directed at conservatives who were invited to speak at various colleges. At Middlebury College in Vermont, protesters mobbed conservative social scientist Charles Murray, injuring a professor who was trying to escort him to safety. At NYU, provocateur and actor Gavin McInnes was rushed by protesters who physically tried to stop him from holding a seminar for College Republicans (police arrested about a dozen demonstrators). And at Berkeley, chaos erupted, even before conservative commentator Milo Yiannopoulos got to the university. Berkeley’s administrators blamed the riot, which caused $100,000 worth of damage, on “150 masked agitators,” who egged on about 1,500 anti-Milo demonstrators.

It appears that rioting, or howling down, or physically attacking a conservative speaker are not enough. Now we have to worry that some “progressive” might slip an overdose into a conservative’s drink.

New York Times demonizes Young America’s Foundation for bringing alt-views to college campuses

The real story of my appearance at the University at Buffalo was how campus Left-fascists and Islamic supremacists screamed abuse at me for an hour and a half, such that I was able to say very little. The real story, in other words, is about how Left-fascists on campuses nationwide are increasingly authoritarian, unwilling to allow views that depart from the Leftist establishment agenda to be heard. The real story is about how campus Leftists and their Muslim allies are emulating the Nazi Brownshirts, shouting down and physically menacing campus speakers whose views they hate.

The real story of my appearance at the University at Buffalo is that university campuses today are radioactive wastelands of hard-Left indoctrination, in which any views that dissent from the Leftist line are stigmatized, demonized, and not allowed a fair hearing.

But the New York Times glosses over all that, not surprisingly, since the Times itself is a flagship of the Leftist establishment, and a cheerleader for any effort that marginalizes and silences dissenting voices. So for the Times, the real story is the wealth of and donors to the Young America’s Foundation, which labors tirelessly to try to bring some small measure of free inquiry to university campuses by sponsoring speakers who invite consideration of ideas that are usually forbidden at these Leftist indoctrination centers. For the Times, it’s some sinister and well-heeled effort to hurt the feelings of the poor fragile snowflakes by encouraging thoughtcrime.

The Times’ approach is laughably ironic in light of the massive amounts Soros lavishes upon groups such as the Center for American Progress that further the hard-Left agenda. YAF’s money is a pittance compared to the money Leftist organizations have, and Leftist speakers such as Reza Aslan command speaker fees exponentially larger than mine and Ann Coulter’s as well. Where is the Times article about the Leftist money machine sending hard-Left speakers to campuses to reinforce the propaganda students are being fed by their professors?

Of course, such a piece will never appear in the Times. Instead, we get this whiny, dreary piece: “‘It’s part of a larger systematic and extremely well-funded effort to disrupt public universities and create tension among student groups on campus,’ said Alexandra Prince, a doctoral student at Buffalo who circulated a petition to block Mr. Spencer.” Create tension? Yes: by making students think about uncomfortable truths, issues and perspectives they have been told to ignore and shun as evil.

The one good thing about this ridiculous article is that it features a wonderfully villainous photo of me. The University at Buffalo, not content to let the fascist Brownshirts scream at me unimpeded, also turned up the heat in the room; it was sweltering in there, and they refused requests to turn it down. So we get this marvelous photo of a sweaty, sneering, disheveled thought criminal, fiendishly poisoning snowflakes’ pure minds, and planning to stop on the way out of town to tie a few maidens to the railroad tracks.

More below.

“The Conservative Force Behind Speeches Roiling College Campuses,” by Stephanie Saul, New York Times, May 20, 2017:

BUFFALO — “Let’s give it up for the racists that are hosting this event!” someone yelled, and the crowd roared, foot-stomping in unison, then breaking into song: Woody Guthrie’s “This Land Is Your Land.” One member of the audience held up a sign, “Queers Against Islamaphobia.” Another unfurled a banner: “Muslims Welcome. Fascists Get Out.”

Close to 200 students kept up the noise for more than an hour in a University at Buffalo lecture hall on May 1, mostly drowning out the evening’s featured speaker, Robert Spencer, a conservative author and blogger who espouses a dark view of Islam.

The event appeared to follow a familiar script, in which a large contingent of liberals muzzles a provocative speaker invited by a small conservative student club. But the propelling force behind the event — and a number of recent heat-seeking speeches on college campuses — was a national conservative group that is well funded, highly organized and on a mission, in its words, to “restore sanity at your school.”

The group, the Young America’s Foundation, had paid Mr. Spencer’s $2,000 fee, trained the student leader who organized the event and provided literature for distribution. Other than the possibility of outside interference, little had been left to chance….

“It’s part of a larger systematic and extremely well-funded effort to disrupt public universities and create tension among student groups on campus,” said Alexandra Prince, a doctoral student at Buffalo who circulated a petition to block Mr. Spencer.

But Ron Robinson, who has served as Young America’s president for more than three decades, said the group’s goal is simply “to increase appreciation and support of conservative ideas, not to stir up leftists or Muslims.”…

In addition to its fiery speakers and marquee names like Newt Gingrich, the organization’s roster includes many low-fuss speakers like the publisher Steve Forbes and the author Ben Stein. It was not associated with the divisive campus appearances recently made by the right-wing writer Milo Yiannopoulos.

But it does sponsor Mr. Spencer, whose writings, including on his website Jihad Watch, are full of dire warnings about the global threat of radical Islam. His work was cited repeatedly in the 1,500-page manifesto of Anders Behring Breivik, who killed 77 people in Norway in 2011.

Breivik again. If he didn’t exist, the Left would find it necessary to invent him. If the Times had any real journalistic standards, it might ask itself why, if my writings incite violence, Breivik remains the only example of this, and he was six years ago. It might wonder why no one else has been stirred up to kill by my books and articles. The answer is that Breivik wasn’t incited to violence by me either. He was a psychopath who cited a lot of people, including Barack Obama and Gandhi. Are they responsible for him? He counseled working with al-Qaeda and Hamas, so his ideas and mine are not the same, but even if they were, is every idea discredited because someone commits violence over it? Was abolitionism discredited by John Brown?

Given the current climate, Mr. Spencer’s Buffalo speech was virtually guaranteed to cause a commotion. Even so, Mr. Robinson said he was surprised by the reaction.

“If you disagree with Spencer to that extent, don’t come to his lecture, don’t call attention to him,” Mr. Robinson said in an interview at the group’s modern offices, where photos of the Reagan Ranch and of influential conservative leaders are on display.

“If you’re 17, 18, 19, 20 years old, do not say that a person doesn’t have the right to express their ideas, and other people to hear those ideas,” he said. “That’s not the United States I understand and it’s not what the American college education should be about.”…

Mr. Spencer was invited to the University at Buffalo by a Young Americans for Freedom chapter organized in the past year. It was no match for a much larger Muslim Student Association, which organized a 1960s-style sit-in at the lecture hall that began hours before Mr. Spencer arrived.

About 30 minutes before his speech, many members of the group, as well as non-Muslim sympathizers, had nearly filled the hall.

A small group of Young Americans for Freedom members gathered near the front, looking buttoned up in business attire and taking on expressions of disgust.

“It’s one of the most disrespectful displays I’ve seen in my life,” said one member, Patrick Weppner, a sophomore majoring in computer science.

When he was able to talk above the noise, Mr. Spencer cited excerpts from the Quran as evidence that the text is used as justification for violence.

During a question-and-answer session, Pasha Syed, an imam from a local mosque, cited a New Testament passage about killing one’s enemies. Mr. Spencer said the difference was that the Quran entreats followers to violence.

There is actually no passage in the New Testament about killing one’s enemies. Syed was misrepresenting a parable of Jesus regarding the divine judgment.

“Jihad is obligatory for everyone able to perform it, male and female, and it is definitely warfare that they are talking about,” Mr. Spencer said. An audience member yelled out, “You are not an intellectual, sir!” prompting a new round of heckling from the crowd.

Incisive, thought-provoking response! In any case, I wasn’t at that point citing the Qur’an, but an Al-Azhar-endorsed Islamic legal manual, which explains that defensive jihad is obligatory upon every Muslim when an Islamic land is attacked. This was garbled in the Times, but I have to give them some slack since the fascists were screaming so loud I was rarely given time to construct a rational argument.

Mr. Spencer warned that the audience would live to regret its behavior. “The forces you are enabling are going to come back to haunt you,” he said.

Indeed.

TFP Student Action reports:

Mark Smythe is a well-liked Catholic teacher at Blessed Trinity Catholic School in Ocala, Florida.  He recently used Saint John Bosco’s writing on Islam in his 6th grade social studies class.

The Islamist propaganda machine Huffington Post found out that Saint John Bosco’s writings were critical of Islam and immediately went public, attacking the teacher for sharing them.

The Office of the Superintendent of Catholic Schools — with the support of the Human Resources Department of the Diocese of Orlando — has reportedly not only reprimanded Mr. Smythe for using Saint John Bosco in class, but also threatened to dismiss him from his job. (The Catholic World Report)

Catholic teaching should not be censored and banned at Catholic schools especially as a result of the Huffington Post’s Islamist propaganda and political correctness that compels non-Muslims to comply with Sharia law’s mandate not to criticize Muhammad or Islam.

Under Sharia, those who insult Muhammad or Allah are to be executed. Islamists attacked Charlie Hebdo in France after the company published cartoons of Muhammad.   Islamists tried to kill nearly two hundred people who gathered in Garland Texas to compete for the best artistic rendition of Muhammad.    Many Americans have lost their jobs, education and social status after being assailed for daring to speak the truth about Islam.
