At this writing, we are less than two weeks away from the anniversary of the day the twin towers in New York City were struck by highjacked airliners. Since that day, the USA has been dramatically changed. Much more attention has been given to the activities of terrorist organizations, and that attention is spreading to include domestic activity as well as overseas. It seems as if there’s hardly a day that goes by when someone, somewhere is discovered engaging in another terrorist-style attack. What gets my dander up is when I find out someone in an “institute of higher learning” decides we have to be extra-careful about offending those whose ties can be directly traced to the organizations from which the attacks originate, espoused by their “religion of peace”.
RIPON COLLEGE BANS POSTER FOR 9/11 MEMORIAL CLAIMING IT SINGLES
OUT AND/OR HARASSES MUSLIM STUDENTS
A Young Americans for Freedom (YAF) chapter at Ripon College in Wisconsin was told by campus administrators that they could not hang their flyers publicizing their 9/11 memorial because “students from a Muslim background would feel singled out and/or harassed,” according to YAF.
The flyers are provided by YAF for their “9/11: Never Forget Project” and feature pictures from various terrorist attacks including 9/11, the 2017 Pulse nightclub shooting, and the 1979 Iranian hostage crisis, among others.
Administrators were critical of the poster, claiming that some of the events “don’t have anything to do with 9/11,” citing ISIS (which was previously named Al Qaeda in Iraq until 2013) and the Iranian hostage crisis, of which one administrator claimed, “I’m not sure I think the Iran hostage issue was Islamic terrorism.”
The administration reportedly told the chapter that objections were brought to the administration and the bias incident team because the posters focus “relentlessly on one religious organization, one religious group, one religious identity,” and that “associating that one religious identity with terrorist attacks which go back far before 9/11 and after 9/11— creates for some students here an environment which they feel like they are not able to learn.”
I think it’s a bad day when student patriots are forbidden to memorialize an historical event, and base their memorialization on historical facts. Are we going to ever know the full story behind the 9/11 attacks? Unlikely. There are many stories going around about the day, and the everyday citizen may never hear the full truth behind what, or why, over 3,000 Americans died uselessly in just a few hours’ time.
