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Brandeis has withdrawn an honorary degree and an invitation to speak at commencement due to Ali’s detractors, who call her an Islamophobe.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.

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.

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”

April 3, 2014 at 9:30 am

“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”.

Watch the sparks fly between Human rights attorney Brooke Goldstein (SHE ROCKS!!!) and CAIR-Chicago’s Agnieszka Karoluk.

VIDEO: Gov. Rick Perry Discloses Chilling Threat From Obama

March 10, 2014 at 10:12 am

“The limits of tyrants are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress.”
– Frederick Douglass.
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.”

In Submission To Her Islamic Slave Masters Katy Perry Quietly Removes Allah Symbol From Dark Horse Video

February 27, 2014 at 6:42 am

katy perry allah dark horse before and after
My advice to Miss Perry is to stock up on Dhimmi knee ointment.

dhimmitude_1_xlarge(Jerusalem Post) –YouTube has quietly edited a Katy Perry music video, after a petition launched on Change.org, urging the online video streaming company to remove the video.

The petition, claiming that Perry literally burns a symbol representing the Muslim God, Allah, reached 50,000 signatures as of Wednesday. YouTube and Perry’s representatives did not respond to the controversy.

Shazad Iqbal, 22, creator of the petition, posted on Wednesday that the effort had ended in victory, however YouTube remained quiet throughout, even though the petition was directed at them.

“I’m thrilled to let you all know the name of Allah has been removed from the ‘Dark Horse’ video we couldn’t have done it without everyone’s support so I thank each and every one of you deeply, our voices have been heard! God bless you all,” Iqbal wrote.

A close look at the “Dark Horse” video on Perry’s VEVO YouTube channel will not prove much of anything. Although the post date of the music video has not changed (February 20), a detailed observation will show any viewer that something has changed. The symbol has quietly been removed.

The “I Kissed a Girl” singer’s latest single, “Dark Horse,” sparked harsh reactions from the international Muslim community for disrespecting a symbol representing their God, Allah.

The petition launched Tuesday on Change.org is urged supporters of Islam as well as other religions, to ask YouTube to remove the “blasphemous” music video.

Perry portrays an animated representation of Egyptian Queen Cleopatra, and she is seen using her powers to destroy those who oppose her. One character in the video is seen wearing a religious symbol around his neck, who she then zaps into a pile of sand, along with his pendant.

“At 01:15 into the video Dark Horse; a man is shown being burned, whilst wearing a pendant (also burned) forming the word ‘Allah’, which is the Arabic word for God,” says the online petition. [...]

Free expression: 0

The pseudo religion of the violently perpetually offended: 1

Sigh…another day, another whiny bitch muslim demanding that infidels bow to the bombastic, bloodlusty cult of islam.
Al Arabiya:

behead-those-who-insult-islamAn online petition launched on Tuesday by Muslims around the world demands that Katy Perry’s music video for “Dark Horse,” in which a ‘God’ pendant is seen being burned, be removed from Youtube.

At 1:15 into the video, a man is shown wearing two pendants, one of which says God in Arabic. Perry, who plays a queen-like figure in the video, zaps the man with lightening and he disintegrates into sand; his pendant disappearing with him.

Petitioners argue that the pop diva is meant to symbolize the opposition of God, making the video blasphemous.

The video, which has a cartoonish Ancient Egypt theme, features other nonsensical aspects such as cat-human hybrid as body guards with whom Perry pole dances with, a dog which walks on its hind legs, and Perry eating spicy junk food.

The petition, which has garnered 30,000 signatures so far, says that its support will show that, “that people from different walks of life, different religions and from different parts of the world, agree that the video promotes blasphemy, using the name of God in an irrelevant and distasteful manner would be considered inappropriate by any religion.”
……

Unik Salihu from Sweden said, “I as a Muslim, think this is a disgrace. Does she want to start a war against Muslims? This video is insulting to us and needs to be removed before something happens! (sic).” [...]

That sounds like a THREAT to me.

Watch: Ashes to ashes allah, dust to dust.

H/T SooperMexican at IJR who adds:

Whatever happens, we’re sure the Obama administration will be more than happy to blame another YouTube video and apologize to the Muslim world for our continued wanton disrespect and aggression towards their religion.

Exit questions:
Will Obama denounce Katy for slandering Islam?
Will Obama send in his Sharia brownshirts to arrest Katy for her blasphemous video?
Will Obama protect fan gurl Katy Perry if things heat up?
If muslims go on the warpath and Americans lives are lost, will Obama blame Katy and her video?

FYI Shazad Iqbal, You Tube refused to pull the Innocence of Muslims video at the request of the Obama Regime so I doubt they will listen to a little piss ant like you.

VICTORY! Constitutional Right To Free Speech: 1 Modesto Junior College: 0

February 26, 2014 at 10:03 am

The back story:

(TheFIREorg) — Sep 19, 2013
Modesto Junior College in California told a student that he could not pass out copies of the United States Constitution outside the student center on September 17, 2013—Constitution Day. Captured on video, college police and administrators demanded that Robert Van Tuinen stop passing out Constitution pamphlets and told him that he would only be allowed to pass them out in the college’s tiny free speech zone, and only after scheduling it several days or weeks ahead of time.

This video contains the relevant portions of Van Tuinen’s experience.

VICTORY! With the assistance of Foundation for Individual Rights in Education Robert Van Tuinen lit a fire under Modesto Junior College’s unconstitutional feet.

Foundation for Individual Rights in Education  FIRE logo 2(FIRE) –FRESNO, Calif., February 25, 2014—Yesterday evening, California’s Modesto Junior College (MJC) agreed to settle a First Amendment lawsuit filed last October by student Robert Van Tuinen, whom the college prevented from handing out copies of the Constitution on Constitution Day. The videotaped incident drew national media attention.

As part of the settlement, MJC has revised its policies to allow free speech in open areas across campus and has agreed to pay Van Tuinen $50,000. Van Tuinen was represented by the firm of Davis Wright Tremaine LLP in Washington, D.C., and assisted by the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE).

“FIRE is very pleased that Robert Van Tuinen and Modesto Junior College have reached this settlement—and that Modesto Junior College students will now be able to exercise their First Amendment rights across campus,” said FIRE President Greg Lukianoff. “But because 59% of colleges nationwide maintain policies that clearly and substantially restrict student speech, there’s much more work to be done.”

Last September 17—the 226th anniversary of the Constitution’s signing—MJC prevented Van Tuinen from handing out copies of the Constitution in a grassy area by the student center. Van Tuinen notified FIRE about the situation, and FIRE promptly wrote MJC, asking the college to rescind its unconstitutional policies. With no satisfactory response forthcoming, on October 10, with FIRE’s assistance, Bob Corn-Revere, Ronald London, and Lisa Zycherman of Davis Wright Tremaine filed a federal lawsuit on Van Tuinen’s behalf. On December 17, MJC agreed to suspend enforcement of the policies in question while settlement talks took place.

Late yesterday, both parties signed a settlement agreement that awards Van Tuinen $50,000 and reflects three new policies that open up the campus to free expression—MJC’s policy on time, place, and manner, the accompanying administrative procedures, and MJC’s Expectations for On-Campus Free Speech Activities. Taken together, these new policies abolish the requirement that students and faculty seek MJC’s permission to speak. Free expression is rightfully now allowed in all “areas generally available to students and the community,” which include “grassy areas, walkways, and other similar common areas.” The settlement also prohibits MJC from reverting to the policies that were in place when Van Tuinen’s right to distribute the Constitution to his fellow students was denied.
