Students at the University of St. Thomas in Minnesota cancelled a “Hump Day” party last week featuring a live camel following complaints that the event could be viewed as offensive to Middle Eastern cultures.

The campus’ Residence Hall Association nixed its own event after several students began organizing a protest on Facebook. The protest had received more than 100 RSVPs before it was deleted Wednesday, according to a Thursday report in Campus Reform.

POLL: Is Common Core indoctrination or education?

The episode has since triggered a social-media backlash against campus political correctness, with critics expressing incredulity over the idea that a camel is somehow culturally insensitive or racist.

“Hopefully this story will be the straw that broke the camel’s back for hypersensitivity on college campuses,” said Andrew Clark, digital press secretary at the National Republican Congressional Committee, on Twitter.

Residence Life Director Aaron Macke told TommieMedia, the school’s online publication, that the organization brought a reindeer to campus in December without incident.

  • If their homosexual beastiality loving prophet mohammyed didn't offend them making love to pigs, then this camel thing will go unnoticed.

  • OK so if they had a Ford or GM party would you be Offended?

    This is Bull Crap


  •  Thank you Evan 

  • Muslims  


     writer unknown

    Have you ever seen a Muslim hospital?
    Have you heard a Muslim orchestra?

    Have you seen a Muslim band march in a parade?
    Have you witnessed a Muslim charity?
    Have you shaken hands with a Muslim Girl Scout?

    Have you seen a Muslim Candy Striper?

    The answer is no, you have not. Just ask yourself WHY ???


    Barack Obama, during his Cairo speech, said:
    "I know, too, that Islam has always been a part of America 's history."

    Dear Mr. Obama:
    Were those Muslims here in America when the Pilgrims first landed?  Funny, I thought they were Native American Indians.
    Were those Muslims that celebrated the first Thanksgiving day?   Sorry again, those were Pilgrims and Native American Indians.
    Can you show me one Muslim signature on the: United States Constitution? Declaration of Independence? Bill of Rights? Didn't think so.


    Did Muslims fight for this country's freedom from England?  No.

    Did Muslims fight during the Civil War to free the slaves in America?   No, they did not.
    In fact, Muslims to this day are still the largest traffickers in human slavery.  Your own half-brother, a devout Muslim, still advocates slavery himself, even though Muslims of Arabic descent refer to black Muslims as "pug nosed slaves."  Says a lot of what the Muslim world really thinks of your family's "rich Islamic heritage," doesn't Mr. Obama?
    Where were Muslims during the Civil Rights era of this country?     Not present


    There are no pictures or media accounts of Muslims walking side by side with Martin Luther King, Jr. Or helping to advance the cause of Civil Rights.


    Where were Muslims during this country's Woman's Suffrage era?
    Again, not present. In fact, devout Muslims demand women are subservient to men in the Islamic culture.   So much so,  they are beaten for not wearing the 'hajib' or for talking to a man who is not a direct family member or their husband.   Yep, the Muslims are all for women's rights, aren't they?


    Where were Muslims during World War II?
    They were aligned with Adolf Hitler. The Muslim grand mufti himself met with Adolf Hitler, reviewed the troops and accepted support from the Nazi's in killing Jews.


    Finally, Mr. Obama, where were Muslims on Sept. 11th, 2001?
    If they weren't flying planes into the World Trade Center , the Pentagon or a field in Pennsylvania killing nearly 3,000 people on our own soil, they were rejoicing in the Middle East.   No one can dispute pictures shown from all parts of the Muslim world celebrating on CNN, Fox News, MSNBC and other cable news network's that day.  Strangely, the very "moderate" Muslims who's asses you bent over backwards to kiss in Cairo, Egypt on June 4th were stone cold silent post 9-11.   To many Americans, their silence has meant approval for the acts of that day.

    And THAT, Mr. Obama, is the "rich heritage" Muslims have here in America ....
    Oh, I'm sorry, I forgot to mention the Barbary Pirates.  They were Muslims.


    And now we can add November 5, 2009 - the slaughter of American soldiers at Fort Hood by a Muslim major who is a doctor and a psychiatrist who was supposed to be counseling soldiers returning from battle in Iraq and Afghanistan.

    Also, don't forget the Boston Marathon bombing on April 15.2013 was done by 2 Muslim Brothers. That, Mr. Obama is the "Muslim heritage" in America!




    Muslim Heritage, INDEED!!!
