Wisconsin College Frowns On 9/11 Memorial Project Over Fears It Could Offend Muslims

The truth is now deemed  ‘bias’ against Muslims by Ripon College.  They have really crossed the line now.

A lot of people need to take themselves back to Sept 12, 2001, and remember how they felt that day once what happened had time to sink in.

Most of these students were in pampers when 9/11 happened. If they don’t remember they should ask their parents and grandparents to tell them about the horrors of it all.

American’s jumping to their deaths to avoid burning to death is forever seared in my mind.

FPM:

The 17th anniversary of September 11, 2001 is upon us and the Young Americans for Freedom (YAF) at Ripon College had been planning a 9/11 project.

Evidently, the school’s “Bias Protocol Board” is not too enthused over it.

YAF’s “9/11: Never Forget Project,” which began 15 years ago, consists of 2,977 flags representing each life that was extinguished on that day of infamy, as well as a poster featuring multiple images and photographs of the Islamic terrorists who murdered them.

According to YAF, its members were informed that the project, particularly the poster, is objectionable because it “relentlessly” targets “one religious organization, one religious group, one religious identity [.]” As such, it gives rise to an environment within which “students from a Muslim background would feel singled out and/or harassed.” More

Washington Examiner:

The private school cited bias reports that were filed during last year’s Sept. 11 memorial project, a project that was a part of Young America’s Foundation’s iconic patriotism initiative which takes place across the country on campuses every year.

The school’s Bias Protocol Board said the project creates an “environment” where “students from a Muslim background would feel singled out and/or harassed.” 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. More

Those who do not remember the past are condemned to repeat it. Ripon College administrators should rethink their idiotic ban of 9/11 posters because most Americans don’t really care who it makes feel uncomfortable.
