“I hope you rot in hell,” is just one of the threats a college Republican club president at San Diego State University (SDSU) began receiving after he wrote a letter SDSU’s Muslim association, requesting them to condemn the terror attack in Barcelona.
Seems harmless enough, right? It seems like everyone else is being forced to condemn the Neo-Nazis and KKK, even though its not hard to do because they are terrible people. Why, then, is it so hard for a Muslim group to condemn a terrorist attack?
UNLESS, hear me out, they don’t think it was wrong because their holy book calls for them to do such acts.
Jones said, “I stand by the statement we made,” and added that “fellow college Republican organizations across the nation have come out in support.”
The MSA didn’t respond to a request for comment, but wrote on Facebook that the MSA expresses its “support for victims of white supremacy, nationalism, and terrorism. Our solidarity is what makes us strong and we must continue to work together to make our college campus a safe place for all students.”
Therefore they did not actually condemn the actions of the terrorists. Wow. They must be literally Hitler. Literally Nazis. At least that’s what the left calls every single Trump supporter because they did not think his condemnation of the alt-right was sufficient enough. Even though he literally said that he condemns and disavows them.
The Young Democratic Socialists called Jones’ letter a “cruel and bigoted attack” against the MSA, and claimed the College Republicans group was “making Muslim students feel even more unsafe on their own campus” by suggesting MSA members “will be considered terrorist sympathizers unless they condemn an attack they had nothing to do with.”
A statement by the Transfronterizo Alliance Student Organization calls for “the immediate removal” of Jones as club president, because they claim “he has shown an extremist nature in his leadership style.” It also calls for the leadership of the College Republicans to be “held under probation.”
Jones then began receiving threats in many different forms.
One alleged threat sent anonymously via text message stated, “I hope you rot in he’ll (sic). We’re coming for you this week … Watch ur back every step u take. SDSU campus will be the war zone against u inhuman rats.”
He received an email that said, “You are obviously not fit to serve for requesting any such actions from the muslim community, please resign immediately. You sir are a racist, so please when convenient kill yourself.”
Jones said he also received an anonymous phone call from somebody who vowed to protest this week for his resignation and expulsion.
Jones said he received a call Wednesday afternoon from campus police, as well the Dean of Students, Dr. Randy Timm, to offer him use of campus safety resources.
When asked to confirm if school officials contacted Jones, SDSU told Fox News that the school “takes seriously the well-being and safety of all our students, faculty, and staff. When alerted to any safety concerns from our campus community, university representatives have standard guidelines and procedures to proactively reach out to individuals and/or groups to discuss their safety and provide guidance as well as support.”
Once again, this just shows how hypocritical and intolerant the left is. They cry about violence but they are generally the ones creating it!
