Submission Accomplished! Ayaan Hirsi Ali Responds To @BrandeisU’s Decision To Rescind Planned Honorary Degree

April 10, 2014 at 8:47 am

 


Evidently Brandeis University is now a sharia zone. Free speech be damned! If a woman who “was personally subjected to genital mutilation, had to flee a forced marriage and is still enduring death threats.[for daring to speak the truth]” does not have the right to expose those very topics then who does? No one as far as CAIR (Council Of Islamic Relations) is concerned. Truth and the freedom of speech are the mortal enemies of CAIR and the insidious cult of islam, which is why islamofascist CAIR fights against them tooth and nail.

(Fox News Insider) –Brandeis University has abruptly yanked an honor for an advocate of women’s rights in the Muslim community.

submission

‘Submission’ a short film by Dutch movie maker Theo van Gogh in association with Ayaan Hirsi Ali. The film deals with the oppression of women in many Muslim countries. Van Gogh was murdered by a Muslim in 2004 for making this film.

Ayaan Hirsi Ali, a Somali-born woman and U.S. citizen, is known for her efforts to advance women’s rights in communities in Islam. She was personally subjected to genital mutilation, had to flee a forced marriage and is still enduring death threats. She has most recently gained attention for her role in “Honor Diaries.”

Brandeis has withdrawn an honorary degree and an invitation to speak at commencement due to Ali’s detractors, who call her an Islamophobe. The Council on American-Islam Relations is one of the groups that has been vocal against Ali. The group has also pushed against “Honor Diaries.”

Ibrahim Hooper, of the unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation terror-finance trial ] Council on American-Islam Relations, told Megyn Kelly that Ali says Islam itself must be defeated and Muslim schools in America should be shut down. He also said the message of “Honor Diaries” is “hate Muslims, hate Islam.”

“Frankly, I don’t think that Mr. Hooper speaks for Muslims, I don’t think that he speaks for Muslim women,” Ali said tonight on “The Kelly File.” [...]

Brandeis’ hypocritical double standards:

Brandeis Student Slams ‘Hypocrisy’ After Islam Critic Shunned

Decision to withdraw award to human rights activist Ayaan Hirsi Ali ‘hypocritical’ in light of previous awards to hatemongers.
……
“The decision is a blatant contradiction of past-president Jehuda Reinhartz’s defense of the same award being given to Tony Kushner. When the anti-Israel Kushner was given an honorary degree, Reinhartz said, ‘Mr. Kushner is not being honored because he is a Jew, and he is not being honored for his political opinions. Brandeis is honoring him for his extraordinary achievements as one of this generation’s foremost playwrights, whose work is recognized in the arts and also addresses Brandeis’s commitment to social justice.’”

Similarly, Mael points out, “Hirsi Ali was not being honored for her views on Islam. She was being honored for her commitment to women’s rights and real justice.”

What’s more, Mael points out, Brandeis University has hosted several controversial anti-Israel speakers, including Sam Bahour, an activist who opposes any peace negotiations between the Palestinian Authority and Israel and who believes that Israel does not have the right to exist.

In a 2011 column in the Guardian Bahour wrote, “Israel [is] a settler, colonial, apartheid movement clinging to a racialist, exclusivist ideology. [The Palestinians] were correct to [reject Israel] at the outset of this conflict [1948].”

The decision to rescind Ali’s honor was withdrawn following pressure from several groups, including most prominently the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), which sent a letter to the university’s president, Dr. Frederik M. Lawrence, referring to her as a “notorious Islamophobe.”

“She is one of the worst of the worst of the Islam haters in America, not only in America but worldwide,” Ibrahim Hooper, a spokesman for the group, said in an interview on Tuesday. “I don’t assign any ill will to Brandeis. I think they just kind of got fooled a little bit.”

But CAIR itself has been accused of having links to extremist Islamist groups including the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas, and the group was directly linked by authorities to an infamous Hamas funding racket known as the Holy Land Foundation.

Mael said that the group played a crucial role in drumming up support for the petition to ban Ali, and that in fact “most of the signatories are from outside the university.”

“This is the same group that has been blocking screening of The Honor Diaries,” he pointed out, referring to CAIR’s controversial campaign to silence a film exposing domestic abuse within the Muslim community. [...]

Brandeis is taking marching orders from CAIR a subversive enemy within:

CAIR holds itself out as America’s foremost Islamic civil rights organization. Under Sharia, however, the Western concept of civil rights does not exist. The analogy to Communist front organizations of an earlier era is striking. While pretending to advocate for freedom and to oppose discrimination, CAIR’s real purpose is to subvert the very society whose liberalism it cynically seeks to exploit.

Mozilla; masters of Orwellian doublespeak:

Mozilla’s statement on Brendan Eich’s ouster:

Mozilla prides itself on being held to a different standard and, this past week, we didn’t live up to it. We know why people are hurt and angry, and they are right: it’s because we haven’t stayed true to ourselves.

We didn’t act like you’d expect Mozilla to act. We didn’t move fast enough to engage with people once the controversy started. We’re sorry. We must do better.

Brendan Eich has chosen to step down from his role as CEO. He’s made this decision for Mozilla and our community.

Mozilla believes both in equality and freedom of speech. Equality is necessary for meaningful speech. And you need free speech to fight for equality. Figuring out how to stand for both at the same time can be hard.

Our organizational culture reflects diversity and inclusiveness. We welcome contributions from everyone regardless of age, culture, ethnicity, gender, gender-identity, language, race, sexual orientation, geographical location and religious views. Mozilla supports equality for all.

We have employees with a wide diversity of views. Our culture of openness extends to encouraging staff and community to share their beliefs and opinions in public. This is meant to distinguish Mozilla from most organizations and hold us to a higher standard. But this time we failed to listen, to engage, and to be guided by our community.

While painful, the events of the last week show exactly why we need the web. So all of us can engage freely in the tough conversations we need to make the world better.

We need to put our focus back on protecting that Web. And doing so in a way that will make you proud to support Mozilla.

What’s next for Mozilla’s leadership is still being discussed. We want to be open about where we are in deciding the future of the organization and will have more information next week. However, our mission will always be to make the Web more open so that humanity is stronger, more inclusive and more just: that’s what it means to protect the open Web.

We will emerge from this with a renewed understanding and humility — our large, global, and diverse community is what makes Mozilla special, and what will help us fulfill our mission. We are stronger with you involved.

Thank you for sticking with us.

2. Sam Yagan is the co-founder of OkCupid and CEO of Match.com, OkCupid’s parent company. He certainly approved OkCupid’s actions, and his twitter stream shows numerous statements confirming his approval and, later, support of Eich’s forced resignation.

3. And yet Sam Yagan made a $500 donation to U.S. Congressman Chris Cannon in 2004.

4. Cannon has a special kind of hate for gays.

The Human Rights Campaign gave him a 0% rating on supporting gay rights.

He voted no on prohibiting job discrimination based on sexual orientation.

He voted for a ban on gay adoptions.

And he supported a constitutional amendment defining marriage as man/woman only.

UPDATE: Left leaning Mother Jones reports on OKCupid’s hypocrisy.

Of course, it’s been a decade since Yagan’s donation to Cannon, and a decade or more since many of Cannon’s votes on gay rights. It’s possible that Cannon’s opinions have shifted, or maybe his votes were more politics than ideology; a tactic by the Mormon Rep. to satisfy his Utah constituency. It’s also quite possible that Yagan’s politics have changed since 2004: He donated to Barack Obama’s campaign in 2007 and 2008. Perhaps even Firefox’s Eich has rethought LGBT equality since his 2008 donation. But OkCupid didn’t include any such nuance in its take-down of Firefox. Combine that with the fact that the company helped force out one tech CEO for something its own CEO also did, and its action last week starts to look more like a PR stunt than an impassioned act of protest. (Mother Jones reached out to OkCupid for comment: We’ll update this post if we receive a response.)

Megyn Kelly Responds To CAIR’s Demand For A Retraction Regarding Her Report On “Honor Diaries”

“Well guess what, you’re not getting it.”

EDIT: Megyn Kelly’s initial report which CAIR objected to.

Backlash grows as universities cancel or postpone “Honor Diaries” a film that is trying to bring attention to ‘honor violence’ inflicted upon women living under Islam — “systematic institutionalized misogyny”.

Via Sara Noble at The Independent Sentinel:

obama-f-we-the-people-constitution-2“I don’t mind telling you I was a bit troubled today by the tone of the president. When you have governors, and we all compete against each other – we are the laboratories of innovation – and for the President of the United States to look Democrat and Republican governors in the eye and say, ‘I do not trust you to make decisions in your state about issues of education, about transportation infrastructure,’…that is really troubling.”

Obama threatened any Governor who spoke out against the out-of-control government spending according to Perry: ”As a matter of fact, I heard him (Obama) say in that meeting, ‘If I hear any of you pushing back, making statements about Washington spends too much money, you’ll hear from me.’ If I’m a Democrat governor, if I’m a Republican governor, I’m highly offended by that.”

The FCC regulates the media and it has the power to remove your license, meaning to ruin you overnight. So any questions it asks is never innocent.

And what is it asking about critical information needs? And who decides if it’s a ‘critical information need? Critical information need’ is a concept that you have in Kiev or in Moscow, you don’t have it in the United States. This is an absolute outrage.”

The free press intimation factor of the ‘Multi-Market Study of Critical Information Needs (CINS)’ is off the charts. Scrap it, dump it, burn it and spit on the ashes.

“Power is in tearing human minds to pieces and putting them together again in new shapes of your own choosing.” -Orwell 1984

In person, over the shoulder Obama FCC intimidation watchdog censors.
Fox News Insider:

In a move that is raising First Amendment concerns, the Obama administration is looking to send the FCC into news organizations to investigate how the media chooses stories. Judge Andrew Napolitano was fired up this morning on Fox and Friends, explaining to Elisabeth, Brian and Steve why the American people need to be aware of this plan.

The Multi-Market Study of Critical Information Needs (CINs) initiative was proposed last May. The FCC explained that it wanted information from television and radio broadcasters “to ascertain the process by which stories are selected, station priorities (for content production quality, and populations served), perceived station bias, perceived percent of news dedicated to each of the eight CIN’s and perceived responsiveness to underserved populations.”

The FCC has identified eight CINs, or key topics that the government believes should be covered.

Quotable quotes:

“This is a radical new era of tyranny for the White House. I can’t imagine it getting to first base.”

“If the FCC shows up here, Mr. Ailes, throw them out! Unless they have a search warrant from a judge, which they’ll never get.”

An FCC Commissioner fears this program could be used in “pressuring media organizations into covering certain stories”:

(ACLJ) –The Obama Administration’s Federal Communication Commission (FCC) is poised to place government monitors in newsrooms across the country in an absurdly draconian attempt to intimidate and control the media.

Before you dismiss this assertion as utterly preposterous (we all know how that turned out when the Tea Party complained that it was being targeted by the IRS), this bombshell of an accusation comes from an actual FCC Commissioner.

FCC Commissioner Ajit Pai reveals a brand new Obama Administration program that he fears could be used in “pressuring media organizations into covering certain stories.”

As Commissioner Pai explains in the Wall Street Journal:

Last May the FCC proposed an initiative to thrust the federal government into newsrooms across the country. With its “Multi-Market Study of Critical Information Needs,” or CIN, the agency plans to send researchers to grill reporters, editors and station owners about how they decide which stories to run. A field test in Columbia, S.C., is scheduled to begin this spring.

The purpose of the CIN, according to the FCC, is to ferret out information from television and radio broadcasters about “the process by which stories are selected” and how often stations cover “critical information needs,” along with “perceived station bias” and “perceived responsiveness to underserved populations.”

In fact, the FCC is now expanding the bounds of regulatory powers to include newspapers, which it has absolutely no authority over, in its new government monitoring program.

The FCC has apparently already selected eight categories of “critical information” “that it believes local newscasters should cover.

That’s right, the Obama Administration has developed a formula of what it believes the free press should cover, and it is going to send government monitors into newsrooms across America to stand over the shoulders of the press as they make editorial decisions.

With this move, the Obama Regime can extend FCC jurisdiction to cover the Internet.  It wants to control the information that people have access to. It wants to control our minds.”
