A society and community work best when all its members are treated equally; this is why most nations on earth are either already or heading towards some form of Democratic governance. When all people are equal and special treatment for elites is at a minimum, people feel that they have more stake in the society and its future. And this is exactly what America’s universities are in the process of destroying.
A Muslim activist group operating in the Luther College, Minnesota, and calling themselves the Concerned Students’ at Luther College, have issued a list of demands to the college administrators and faculty. Some of their demands include the fairly drab and unimaginative pointless virtue signalling we have come to expect from “college snowflakes”: more “tutors of colour”, “gender neutral bathrooms” etc…
But within their demands are also things that would give more special benefits to ONLY Muslim students. One such demand is that the college:“‘Establish and fund a bi-monthly shuttle service for students to visit the Masjed Abubakr Al-Siddiq in Rochester, MN, free of charge,”. Not only is this Mosque an hour and a half away, it is specific for Muslim students, AND it is to be “free of charge”.
Now as you know, nothing is actually “free of charge”. in this case, the cost would come from the taxpayer. Is it right that the taxpayer is charged money to help a college discriminate against other students? Why sould one group receive a benefit that another does not? Is this a form of racism?
It’s not here yet, but the day is coming when even liberals are going to wonder…
Why are we suddenly seeing mindless support for Islam throughout the country?
Furthermore, why are hearing hugely disturbing reports about not-so-hidden Muslim agendas in our schools? Forcing students to admit Islam is the “one truth faith?”
Are you kidding me?
But no place is this more terrifying than in our so-called institutions of higher learning. Not only are these places breeding grounds for useless snowflakes who don’t believe in work, they’re also clearly pro-Islam.
Now, we have Muslim students demanding – and receiving – free services not available to other students.
The radical feminists, the gay-rights activities, etc.; these and more are denied benefits available to Muslims, who are undeniably the preferred group among progressives. For some reason we can’t quite understand.
You may recall the asinine list of demands Muslim students handed to the University of Maryland. Well, it has happened again, this time at Luther College in Minnesota.
Via Campus Reform:
A group referred to as “‘Concerned Students’ at Luther College in Minnesota has issued demands for various social justice initiatives, including a free bi-monthly special service only for Muslims.”
Some of these are standard leftist fare “such as gender-neutral restrooms, hiring ‘more faculty and staff of color,’ and establishing ‘a comprehensive racial and ethnic awareness and inclusion curriculum.’”
Then there is this offensive demand:
“‘Establish and fund a bi-monthly shuttle service for students to visit the Masjed Abubakr Al-Siddiq in Rochester, MN, free of charge,’ states one such request, referring to a mosque that is located an hour and a half away from campus.”
Lest you think this is an isolated instance, note that:
“…this comes on the heels of a story in late March at Columbia University where Muslim students are demanding a full-time religious advisor and a permanent prayer space accessible during academic breaks.”
They are also demanding that this prayer space be available to all Muslims, regardless of whether they are students at Columbia or not.
The cost to John Q. Taxpayer is, of course, irrelevant to these people, as it’s irrelevant to all liberals.
But seriously, a shuttle service, permanent prayer spaces, gender-neutral restrooms, and new hirees “of color” and a full-time religious advisor? SERIOUSLY?
We conservatives have been warning about the dangers of Islam for some time. These people are NOT our friends, as we have learned over and over and over.
It might be that when some of the left’s cherished causes such as gay marriage and sexual freedom confront the sword of Islam, we could see the progressives “adjust their priorities” a bit.
But I’m not holding my breath.
