A private school in Wisconsin has banned a September 11 memorial from being held on college grounds because it is offensive to Muslims. 

“Students from a Muslim background would feel singled out and/or harassed,” a representative of the Protocol Board said.

 Washington Examiner reports: As a result, Ripon students will not be allowed to hang flyers as part of their vigil to remember the victims of Sept. 11.

 According to YAF, administrators claimed that one of their objections is “because radical Islamist terrorism ‘represents a small percentage of the terrorist attacks that happened to this country, and they don’t represent the full gamut, and they show a very small picture of a specific religion or nationality instead of the larger viewpoint.’”

This attempt by Ripon College’s ‘bias protocol board’ to sanitize the truth out of remembering the anniversary of September 11 proves the necessity of YAF’s iconic 9/11: Never Forget Project, as well as the need for bold YAF activists,” Young America’s Foundation Spokesman Spencer Brown told Red Alert Politics.

“YAF’s leadership in creating meaningful memorials on this important date in our nation’s history ensures that the rising generation remembers the 2,977 innocent lives lost. The administrators’ reliance on feelings rather than facts betrays their intention to cower from the truth rather than highlight the scourge of radical Islamist terror for what it is: evil.”

 The Ripon handbook states that the college is “committed to the free speech and open exchange of ideas and views, as reflected in the institution’s Core Values” but this commitment “requires the confrontation of challenging issues in the context of civil discourse and intellectual inquiry.” Students can combat bias by “participating in on-campus programming around multiculturalism, diversity and social justice.

 The Ripon Center for Diversity and Inclusion boasts of its programming surrounding International Month, Black History Month, Women’s History Month, Hispanic Heritage Month and LGBT History Month, and “Culture Week,” yet bans the “social activism” of a patriotic event remembering the deadliest terrorist attack on U.S. soil.

 The handbook goes on to explain and vaguely define a “bias Incident” as a “behavior or act—verbal, written, or physical—which is personally directed against or targets an individual or group based on perceived or actual characteristics.”

 While hate crimes should be punished and bias generally creates a negative environment for learning and living, Americans should absolutely be biased against our enemies, especially terrorist organizations like al Qaeda or the Islamic State.

 Ripon’s censorship of YAF’s memorial is a chilling example of speech suppression, where a bipartisan, patriotic event is being shut down due to the anonymous objections of a few. It’s also an example of the shocking anti-American sentiment taking place in U.S. higher education.

 Dem Governor Threatens Trump: “Something’s Got To Happen To This Guy… He’s Sabotaging The World Order”

“If we don’t get rid of him, he’s going to undermine America and even the world.”

Another Democrat has called for ‘something to happen’ to President Trump in order to save the democratic process in America.

California Gov. Jerry Brown made the comments during an appearance on MSNBC, while discussing the death toll during hurricanes last year in Puerto Rico.

“Well, the problem is, we never had a president who was engaged in this kind of behavior,” Brown declared.

“I mean he’s not telling the truth. He keeps changing his mind. He’s sabotaging the world order in many respects.” the Governor claimed.

“So it’s unprecedented, it’s dangerous, and hopefully this election is going to send a strong message to the country,” he continued.

“The Democrats will win and then Trump — well, something’s got to happen to this guy, because if we don’t get rid of him, he’s going to undermine America and even the world.” Brown urged.

The tacit threat comes in the wake of Maxine Waters encouraging anti-Trumpers to “knock off” the President.
