Put Islamo-Fascism into the college curriculum
Six years after 9/11 we are engaged in a global conflict in which we cannot name the enemy who has attacked us. The President has described the war we are in as a war on terror. But terror is only a tactic used by many. Our enemies are Islamo-fascists. They are religious fanatics who, as the President has said, are the heirs of all the murderous ideologies of the 20th century. By sacrificing human life to serve their radical visions, by abandoning every value except the will to power, they follow in the path of fascism, Nazism and totalitarianism. Yet even the President cannot use the word Islamo-fascist because civil rights groups like the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) complain that that is Islamo-phobic. CAIR is itself an arm of the Islamo-fascist movement, having been created by the Muslim Brotherhood the fountain-head of al-Qaeda and the jihad against us and the terrorist Palestinian organization, Hamas.
What would World War II have been like if every time we described our enemies as Nazis, a German civil rights group complained that we were Germanophobes and our leaders caved to their demands? Yet that is precisely the situation we presently face. We cannot name the enemy and we cannot study him.
Six years after 9/11, not a single Middle Eastern Studies Department in the United States offers a course on Islamo-Fascism or Islam and Fascism, although the founders of the modern jihad Hassan al-Banna and Sayd Qutb were both admirers of Hitler as are the current rulers of Iran. Yet without studying the movement that threatens us, we cannot possibly be equipped to defend ourselves adequately.
To end this censorship, we demand that the Middle Eastern Studies Department at this university
Include a course on the origins, perspectives, motives and goals of the Islamo-Fascist movement in its basic course offering Offer a series of open seminars on Islamo-Fascism for the student body at large Invite speakers to address these classes and the campus at large, offering a variety of perspectives on Islamo-Fascism
Given the make up of our Universities, a course on Islamo Facism would be a “how to” course of instruction.

Wait a minute, is he talking about Islamo-Facism, or the Klintons?
But Is-Lame is a religion of peace - My noble and truthful president tells me so. Why would we want to spend time and resources studying such a benign faith full of sunshine and lollipops?
Or is there something my noble president isn’t telling me?
Yeah, he hasn’t told you to shut up.
You mean Clintons...
God don’t we all love the snappy crude invective of the average Bushbot. Or is it some Lib troll?
No matter. For both their day has come and gone.
