Muslims in NASA, Muslims in the White hut, and now Muslim sympathy in education

sounds great. /s

it’s about time we start screaming at these people so they are aware we don’t approve of their religious bigotry... or just get very quiet and track their movements and numbers

I’m in favor of tracking

Intellectuals sure seem to think they’re smart despite their huge lack od common sense and wisdom. I know which of the two I would rather have after having lived over 50 decades on this rock.

He couched, he lay down as a lion, and as a great lion: who shall stir him up?

Blessed is he that blesseth thee, and cursed is he that curseth thee.

Curtis Marez is the President of this org Dr. Marez’ research and teaching focus is on race and political economy in popular culture and media, with a particular emphasis on U.S. Latinos.

The VP is Lisa Duggan her teaching focus is on Modern U.S. cultural, social, and political history; history of gender and sexuality; lesbian and gay studies.

So you have a radical Hispanic and a lesbian heading the org.
