Resolutuon 6S bans “prejudice against Islam or Muslims, especially as a political force.” In other words, voicing anti-Muslim sentiment against barbaric sharia law or political Islam, including Islamic jihadism/terrorism, is now officially banned at this American college campus.
Daily Lobo In the wake of recent attacks targeting Muslims on American college campuses (name one?) and around the world, ASUNM unanimously passed a cautionary resolution at Wednesday’s meeting urging UNM administration to state their opposition to “Islamophobia.” (Yes, it is now illegal to be afraid of people whose most sacred books command them to kill you if you don’t believe in Islam, and who are actually doing it around the world and in America, too)
Sen. Udell Calzadillas Chavez, who introduced Resolution 6S, said there is a widespread culture of fear and ignorance that perpetuates violence against Muslims. (No, it is violence by Muslims that causes people to hate Muslims) The purpose of the resolution is to provoke better understanding of Islam in the UNM community. (No, it is to stifle free speech)
“This is a proactive approach to events in the United States and around the world,” he said.
Citing domestic attacks against Islam such as the February killing of three Muslim students at the University of North Carolina (totally unrelated to their being Muslim) and a Molotov cocktail being thrown at the Albuquerque Islamic Center last year, as well as the continuing fight against ISIS in the Middle East, the legislation states that UNM “should stand strong in opposition of Islamophobia and related hate crimes.”
DCClothesline Anti-Muslim hate crime barely registers. Anti-Jewish, anti-black and anti-gay hate crimes are significantly more common, with antisemitic hate crime coming in at over 60%. But facts, reality and truth are hate speech now. Faked hate leading to anti-freedom legislation. Muslim anti-semitism on college campuses is rampant, but you never see resolutions, newspaper articles, prohibitions on that nazism.
The document defined Islamophobia as “dislike or prejudice against Islam or Muslims, especially as a political force.” Ihsan Wadud-Rodriguez, a senior Psychology major and Muslim student, said prejudice is often driven by inaccurate and uninformed presumptions about Muslims and the religion they practice.
“Islam has been unfairly confounded with cultural practices,” Wadud-Rodriguez said. “Those very cultural practices which are not supported by Americans are also not supported by Islam. There’s no contradiction: I don’t experience any self-discrepancy between my American values and Islamic values.”
