UC Irvine: "One Personís Hate Speech is Another Personís Education" (swastikas at Irvine)
LittleGreenFootballs ^ | 10-27-2006 | LGF

The University of California Irvine has been the subject of many posts at LGF, because the school plays host to one of the most unabashedly radical Muslim Student Union groups in the US. And now the anti-Jewish incitement has reached such a fever pitch that on the weekend of October 8, a student housing building was defaced with swastikas.

What? You didn’t hear about it on the news? Apparently, deranged expressions of antisemitism on California campuses are not really news any more.

In response to this event, Vice Chancellor of Student Affairs Manuel Gomez held a meeting and demonstrated exactly why UC Irvine has degenerated into a pit of hatred:

Some of the Jewish students at the meeting revealed that they and others had been subject to verbal and physical intimidation at the hands of MSU members, and that they had previously reported these claims to campus security. In light of this, some students asked that Drake place restrictions on where MSU events are held, saying that if their events were held in classrooms as opposed to public spaces, their effect would not be as broad. However, Chancellor Drake told Jewish students at the meeting that he cannot restrict any club, that it would be “violation of law to prohibit certain speech.” Gomez emphasized that though hate speech may be present, he would not seek to curtail it, as “one person’s hate speech is another person’s education.”

Omri Ceren has more details on this appalling story: More Nazi Imagery on UC Irvine’s Campus.

Unless you are Christian and/or conservative.

How about burning an image of Mohammad onto their Muslim building? Would that be fair?

How about burning an image of the goat-phucking pedophile into their skulls?

Jews just can't get a break but they do need to give themselves a break and multiculturalism a rest by becoming more conservative as a people or they might become as liberal families are becoming: extinct.

Is that why he mandate women wear veils, because he was a rabid homosexual child rapist? Couldn't stand the scorned looks? You can't see children getting kidnapped as well in veils either as it cuts off the peripheral vision.

Islam isn't in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant. The Koran should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on earth."
-CAIR chairman, Omar M. Ahmad (as reported by the San Ramon Valley Herald in July 1998)

“Once we are here, our mission in this country is to change it. There is no way for Muslims to be violent in America, no way. We have other means to do it… "
-Abdulrahman Alamoudi, 1996 at an Islamic conference in Chicago

Put cameras on the places that were defaced and Jewish folks who are harassed should have someone film them walking by the problem folks as they record with their tape recorder what was said to them as threats.

When the school then fails to do anything, bring a multimillion dollar lawsuit for damages against the University for intolerance, allowing an unsafe environment and perhaps allowing Federal hate crimes to happen daily.
