  1. Received this today from a reliable source although I have no references to satisfy the Plagiarist Police . Authentic or not I believe it is a reflection of the way many people are thinking about what is happening in the world and indeed our own back gardens

    Tells Muslims to Leave Country
    Hooray for Michigan State University !
    Well, what do we have here?
    Looks like a small case of some people being able to dish it out, but not
    take it.
    Let's start at the top.


    The story begins at Michigan State University with a mechanical
    engineering professor named Indrek Wichman.
    Wichman sent an e-mail to the Muslim Student's Association.
    The e-mail was in response to the students' protest of the Danish
    cartoons that portrayed the Prophet Muhammad as a terrorist.
    The group had complained the cartoons were "hate speech."
    Enter Professor Wichman.
    In his e-mail, he said the following:
    Dear Moslem Association:
    As a professor of Mechanical Engineering here at MSU I intend to protest
    your protest.
    I am offended not by cartoons, but by more mundane things like beheadings
    of civilians, cowardly attacks on public buildings, suicide murders,
    murders of Catholic priests (the latest in Turkey ), burnings of
    Christian churches, the continued persecution of Coptic Christians in
    Egypt , the imposition of Sharia law on non-Muslims, the rapes of
    Scandinavian girls and women
    (called "whores" in your culture), the murder of film directors in
    Holland ,
    and the rioting and looting in Paris France .
    This is what offends me,
    a soft-spoken person and academic, and many, many of my colleagues. I
    counsel your dissatisfied, aggressive, brutal, and uncivilized
    slave-trading Moslems to be very aware of this as you proceed with your
    infantile "protests."
    If you do not like the values of the West - see the 1st Amendment - you
    are free to leave.
    I hope for God's sake that most of you choose that option.
    Please return to your ancestral homelands and build them up yourselves
    instead of troubling Americans.

    Cordially,
    I. S. Wichman
    Professor of Mechanical Engineering

    As you can imagine, the Muslim group at the university didn't like this
    too well. They're demanding that Wichman be reprimanded and mandatory
    diversity training for faculty and a seminar on hate and discrimination
    for freshman.
    Now the chapter of CAIR has jumped into the fray.
    CAIR, the Council on American-Islamic Relations, apparently doesn't
    believe that the good professor had the right to express his opinion.

    For its part, the university is standing its ground, saying the e-mail
    was private, and they don't intend to publicly condemn his remarks.
    That will probably change. Wichman says he never intended for his e-mail
    to be made public, and wouldn't have used the same strong language if
    he'd known it was going to get out.

    How's the left going to handle this one? If you're in favor of the
    freedom of speech, as in the case of Ward Churchill, will the same
    protections be demanded for Indrek Wichman? I doubt it.
    Send this to your friends, and ask them to do the same.
    Tell them to keep passing it around until the whole country gets it.
    We are in a war. This political correctness crap is getting old and
    killing us.

    If you agree with this, please send it to all your friends, if not simply
    delete

  2. First - never put something in an email that you don't want passed on. It always happens.

    Second - never back-peddle on remarks like that when made public. It's obviously how he feels and by doing so he ends up looking like an idiot.

    Third - he is going to get fired despite what the university are saying now. That always happens too. Always ok for one group to protest and do bad things in the name of so called injustice but the same rule does not apply to the rest of.

    Is PC dead? Not bleedin likely.

  3. Surely in the "land of the free" he's able to air his views private or not. He's made a bit of a schoolboy error but obviously has strong feelings on the issue as do most people, but unlike him are we too scared to air them?

    PC is here now but for how long
     
  4. Surely it can only be a matter of time before those in charge of the country come to their senses and realise that the PC Brigade is wrecking this country.
    How much more public money has got to be wasted fighting legal cases such as that of the right for a teaching assistant to wear the hijab at work?
    Virtually all such cases are fought using money from the public purse, well past the time for the PC brigade to be shown the door.
     
  5. Slim i really hope your right!
     
  6. Seventy grown men decide to have their annual horseshoe throwing contest down in the country over here in Ireland.

    It is abandoned because of the stone throwing scum bags from a estate down the road. The Gard/Gardai have classed this estate as a no go area according to the news and can do nothing! Bollocks!!

    A couple of dozen leather belts would soon sort out the problem I am a thinking.

    Same the world over everybody is pissed off with the PC softly softly touch!
     
  7. Slim - you hit the nail on the head when you wrote "How much more public money has got to be wasted fighting legal cases". It is because there is so much money to be made that PC is not likely to go for some considerable time. The only thing which could get rid of it is a ground sway of feeling from the masses and if we learn nothing else from history - the silent majority remain silent.

  8. I think his statement was a fair and accurate representation of SOME Muslims and wasn't aimed at them exactly......Racist?! how?!
    And i also agree with the part where he said that IF and IF they don't like the values of the western world which they live in they are more than welcome to live in a country where Islamic values are conformed as a nation rather than a religious minority.
