SAN DIEGO STATE College Republicans labeled as a “hate group” for asking Muslim Student Association to condemn Barcelona Islamic terrorist attacks
Kind of like asking the pot to call the kettle black, considering that the Muslim Student Association is one of the leading front groups for the Muslim Brotherhood which has been designated a terrorist organization and banned by several Arab Muslim nations.
The College Fix The president of the San Diego State College Republicans is facing threats and demands for his resignation over a letter from the political club calling on the school’s Muslim Student Association to condemn the recent terror attack in Barcelona.
The letter, signed by SDSU College Republicans Chairman Bandon Jones, stated in part that “until radical Islamic terrorism is disavowed by the Muslim Student Organization at SDSU, we cannot move forward in creating an inclusive environment for all students on campus.” It added the Muslim Student Association’s leadership should resign if they do not disavow Islamic terrorism.
The letter caused an uproar. In addition to fielding calls for his resignation, Jones said he has been told to kill himself in an anonymous email, and received a threat on his cell phone after he published his telephone number as part of his group’s Muslim Student Association press release.
The text stated: “I hope you rot in hell. We’re coming for you this week, you vile piece of a human being. Watch your back every step you take. SDSU campus will be the war zone against you inhumane rats.”
The national Muslim Student Association expressed support for the San Diego State chapter for “their solidarity, strength and perseverance in the face of ignorance and hate.”
The Young Democratic Socialists of SDSU responded by declaring: “We condemn the San Diego State College Republicans’ disgraceful statement towards the SDSU Muslim Student Association and the SDSU Muslim community. Retract and apologize now.”
Its statement condemned the College Republicans for “perpetuating an Islamophobic, hostile campus climate for our Muslim student community on campus.”
“We demand a safe and inclusive campus environment for all San Diego State University students and will not tolerate further racist, xenophobic and Islamophobic letters by the San Diego State College Republicans toward any other student group or campus community,” the group said on Facebook.
Transfronterizo’s statement calls for Jones’ removal as head of the College Republicans, calling his leadership “extremist.” Jones, for his part, stands behind his group’s statement.
“The San Diego State College Republicans are standing by our statement we sent to the SDSU Muslim Student Association. As far as the distaste that some students have expressed towards me personally, I am baffled by the hypocrisy that comes from the left. They have shown their true colors and have exposed their own double standard,” Jones told The Fix.
Now there’s rumors Jones will be the subject of a campus protest sometime this week, he added. But the 21-year-old political science major said he’s not backing down, despite claims he’s been reported to diversity and inclusion campus administrators and the dean of students.
San Diego State’s Sharia-compliant Muslim Student Association demands a “zero-tolerance policy for what they consider to be Islamophobic speech and actions.”
The Blaze The Muslim Student Association at San Diego State University recently issued a list of demands directed at the administration, students and political leaders in an effort to combat Islamophobia on campus.
The demands — which include “a zero tolerance policy explicitly for Islamophobic speech and actions” and mandatory “bystander training” for faculty, staff and students — were posted on the group’s Facebook page after a female Muslim student was allegedly attacked (but never proven and no one ever arrested) by a white man in a campus parking lot on November 19, about a week after the terrorist attacks that killed 130 in Paris.
After the likely fake hate attack, the Muslim Student Association presented its list of demands: The document demands that local, state and federal political leaders “cease their fear mongering anti-Islamic rhetoric” and “recognize that the dehumanization of refugees and scapegoating of the Muslim faith enables an environment for attacks like this to occur.”
The MSA also demanded that students who witnessed the November 19 attack “step forward and help aid in the investigation.” (No one ever did)
