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
