Robert Spencer: Loyola Marymount University: It’s “Islamophobic” to be “Counter-Jihad”

by Robert Spencer

The Los Angeles Loyolan tells us that it is Loyola Marymount University’s “award-winning, student-run news organization,” and it is not surprising that it would have won awards from the people who give out awards these days, because like all campus papers, it is a reliable guide to how deeply the far-Left indoctrination that most professors are conducting is taking root in their unwitting students. One of those students is the Assistant Opinion Editor for the Los Angeles Loyolan, a young man (I know that because he helpfully informs us that his pronouns are “He/Him/His”) named Cristobal Spielmann, who is, like all well-informed, duly woke students today, horrified at the prospect that someone would be so “racist” as to oppose jihad mass murder and Sharia oppression of women and others.

Inside Higher Ed may weep bitter crocodile tears over my noting the ominous assumptions behind Spielmann’s words, as the young fellow is only a child, but he is a child putting his views out in the public forum, and consequently must deal with public dissent from his views – at least until he and his fellow fascists secure power.

And Spielmann’s views are indeed ominous. I am an “anti-Muslim extremist,” he claims in an extended complaint against Loyola Marymount’s Young Americans for Freedom chapter, and offers this as his explanation of why: a pamphlet I wrote “takes every opportunity to paint the near entirety of Islam and the Quran as violent while creating a paranoid ‘us vs. them’ narrative of the West in a moral struggle with Islam.”

In reality, of course, the West is not in the least engaged in a moral struggle with Islam. Many Muslims, however, are in a moral struggle with the West and other non-Muslim entities. Apparently it is “Islamophobic” to take any notice of that. It is objectionable enough just to note that the Qur’an has passages calling for violence against non-Muslims. Did I misquote the Qur’an, or state its contents inaccurately? Spielmann had the residual honesty not to go so far as to say that, and of course he would not have been able to say it if he meant to tell the truth at all, since I don’t misquote or misrepresent the Qur’an. He just doesn’t like what I said about it, because it doesn’t fit the way he wants to pretend that the world is.

Even worse, “This isn’t even the first time that the LMU chapter of YAF has engaged in Islamophobia. Last fall semester, YAF posted a counter-jihad poster…”

So now it’s “Islamophobic,” at least at Loyola Marymount University, even to oppose jihad and to post a “counter-jihad poster.” Apparently now even opposing jihad, the imperative that led Mohamed Atta and his comrades to murder 3,000 people on September 11, 2001, and that has been the driving force behind over 36,000 terror attacks worldwide since that date, is “Islamophobic.”

This has been a long time coming. The seeds of it were planted the first time the establishment media labeled opposition to jihad terror and Sharia oppression “anti-Muslim.” If it’s anti-Muslim to oppose those things, then the establishment media narrative that such violence and oppression is perpetrated only by a tiny minority of extremists that misunderstands its own religion is false – but of course no establishment counterterror analyst has ever taken notice of that.

I have for years pointed out that when foes of jihad terror are smeared as “anti-Muslim” and “Islamophobic,” without any attempt whatsoever to delineate a proper and respectable response to that terror, then all resistance to the advancing jihad is stigmatized, and ultimately becomes impossible. That is exactly where we are now, in the thoroughly indoctrinated mind of young Cristobal Spielmann and millions of others like him. Leftist professors all over the country are turning out people like Cristobal on a daily basis. Before too long they will likely make it altogether impossible to say the slightest negative word about jihad mass murder, and when they do so, they will think they are doing something righteous. By that time even the most happily blinkered Leftist may wake up to what is happening. But it will be too late.

Alex Newman: Schools Busted Promoting Islam

by Alex Newman

Government schools in Michigan are under fire after an investigation by the Thomas More Law Center, a non-profit legal group, exposed a massive tax-payer funded propaganda program glorifying Islam and denigrating Christianity. Teachers were targeted in the controversial scheme, with the expectation that they would pass the lies on to their students.

The investigation began after TMLC discovered that teachers were being forced to take a two-day “training seminar” on Islam. The program, run by a Muslim “consultant” and self-proclaimed “social justice” advocate, bombarded hundreds of public-school teachers with anti-American and anti-Christian extremism masquerading as “culturally responsive teaching.”

Among other concerns, the training program was “riddled with falsehoods and errors of omission that were clearly meant to deceive,” the Law Center explained. For instance, there was no truthful information provided to teachers on either jihad (holy war) or Sharia (Islamic) law, which are two of the cornerstones of Islam.

Teachers were told that while the Bible had been changed, the Koran had come straight from Allah to Muhammad. “Her message was clear: The Koran is superior to the Bible,” the Thomas More Law Center explained in a statement about its findings, adding that the Muslim “consultant” was paid $2,500 per day to indoctrinate teachers.

The “consultant,” Huda Essa, also dismissed concerns about terrorism, saying it had nothing to do with Islam. Perhaps not surprisingly, the program also taught Michigan teachers that white Christian males were more dangerous to the public than Islamic extremists whose holy book commands them to wage never-ending war against infidels. Essa accused America of “genocide,” too, while ignoring Islam’s 1400 year history of exterminating non-Muslims across the Middle East and North Africa, TMLC said.

“We found that the teachers were subjected to two days of Islamic propaganda, where Islam was glorified, Christianity disparaged, and America bashed,” said Richard Thompson, president and chief counsel of the Law Center, after the investigation was completed. “This type of infiltration amounts to an Islamic Trojan horse within our public-school systems. No other religion gets this kind of special treatment in our schools.”

As part of the investigation, the Law Center filed a Freedom of Information Act request for documents related to the workshop. Within the materials received, the conservative-leaning non-profit legal group obtained audio recordings of the “diversity” presentation forced upon Michigan teachers.

What Thompson found most disappointing about the ordeal was the fact that not a single one of the over 400 teachers subjected to this particular “training” session publicly challenged the bizarre teachings. It was not immediately clear whether this was due to fear of reprisals, agreement with the consultant’s extremism, or other causes.

Similar tax-funded “training” seminars for educators by the same Islamist have taken place in California, Georgia, Texas, Florida, and more. In fact, the consultant’s website openly brags about all the educators across America who have been subjected to the same propaganda, which has been filtering down into school classrooms for years.

It seems that, with one key exception, any and all religions are now being welcomed and promoted to gullible children in government schools in America today — Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, Humanism, Atheism, and so on, are all celebrated. By contrast, only Christianity and the Bible, the foundations that America and the West were founded upon, is blacklisted, ridiculed, denigrated, and openly attacked.

The Takeaway

Especially in a Christian nation like America, this tax-funded anti-Christian indoctrination should be considered totally unacceptable. It represents an existential threat to liberty, peace, and prosperity. Parents and taxpayers need to stop these abuses now, before the ongoing “fundamental transformation” America becomes impossible to reverse. Protecting one’s own children is a great place to start.

Hillary Clinton & Islamo-fascism

Hillary Clinton & Islamo-fascism-“A complete whitewashing propaganda campaign in behalf of Islam is now being waged throughout our educational system…”

by Bill Lockwood

Hillary Clinton and her campaign scurries to welcome Muslims and to ensure they have a place in America. Witness her answers in the recent presidential debate. However, the recent email dump from WikiLeaks demonstrates that her staff, and presumably she herself, do not feel the same way about Christianity. What is most frightening about this, however, is the apparent lack of moral clarity and courage by average Americans to make distinctions between Islam and Christianity.

Pounded continually by a complicit media, citizens can scarcely see that Christianity of the Bible is a religion of peace with man and God (Christ is the Prince of Peace) while Islam of the Koran is primarily a totalitarian system of government control akin to communism (Muhammad was a violent War-Lord). There is very little religion within Islam.

To Christianity we owe the sacred concepts of the value of life, liberty and the validation of owning private property. Islam knows nothing of these. Unless citizens can begin thinking clearly about these concepts we can expect a continued dramatic uptick by Islamo-fascists in America led by Clinton-Obama forces.

Raymond Ibrahim of Hudson New York wrote in 2011, Muslim violence against the Christian world is “on its way to reaching epidemic proportions.” It continues unabated.  Inspired by Sharia Law, as well as bold passages in the Quran itself which call for bloody violence against non-Muslims, Islamicists worldwide have intensified their jihad and communist aggression.

One of the most obvious causes of this upsurge is the fact that America elected a President who declares personal solidarity with Islam—even referring to himself as a “Muslim” in aired video clips. Obama then boldly lied when he informed America that he was a “Christian” and the liberal media establishment has been complicit to deceive John Q. Public.  If Hillary becomes president, the aggressiveness of Muslims world-wide will continue.

Around the Globe

Efforts by the Obama administration to placate Islam have merely intensified conflicts. As David Kupelian puts it, we are literally “feeding” jihad and “nurturing it.” Reports from Pakistan, for example, include school textbooks denigrating Christianity while lauding Islam. Sounds like the Clinton campaign have been studying Pakistani texts!

The result: increasing intolerance of Christianity as well as other non-Muslim religions. Christians are regularly portrayed in Pakistan as second-class citizens who are enemies of Islam. Consequently,  beatings of pregnant Christian women have been inflicted by Pakistani Muslim police who threaten to kill their unborn fetuses. In Egypt, dozens of Christians were killed several Octobers ago during what has been called the “Maspero Massacre.” Literally hundreds of Christians came under attack in Maspero by Muslim mobs throwing bottles and stones and several were murdered.  One senior leader of the Islamic Salafi party blamed Christians themselves for their deaths at the hands of Muslim thugs, declaring it was “Allah’s curse on them.”

Islamic militants in Nigeria are routinely attacking churches and police stations. Ibrahim reports that the attacks include opening fire on congregations of ‘mostly women and children,’ killing dozens. This follows massive violence that erupted after a Christian, President Jonathan, defeated his Muslim rival in elections. Identical events are occurring daily across the globe: Indonesia, Iran, Turkey, Afghanistan, Kashmir, Kenya, and the list goes on.

America

While a common-sense American would be glancing around the globe with alarm wondering how our culture might resist the onslaught of violent Islamic teaching and practice– what instead do we find? Hillary Clinton’s staff loathing Christianity while she schmoozes Islam.

Added to that are the relentless attacks against Donald Trump for his common sense proposal of suspending immigration from Islamic nations until we find out what is occurring. But that is exactly what our cultural leaders do not want to occur, even though “what is going on” is that Islam is setting about to conquer nations through jihad as was practiced by their founder, Muhammad. Too many spineless citizens have not enough courage to look beneath veneer of misinformation published by the major media.

A complete whitewashing propaganda campaign in behalf of Islam is now being waged throughout our educational system with very little opposition from right-minded patriots.  Indoctrination includes California school children ordered to pretend that they are Muslims on a pilgrimage to Mecca and learning to shout “Allah Akbar” in imitation of murderers such as the Ft. Hood terrorist.

Some textbooks now used in our public schools actually declare that polygamous marriages are better than monogamous marriages; others teach that Islam is a religion of “tolerance and peace”; still others praise the implementation of Sharia law while upholding the murderous Muhammad as one who simply “defended himself.”

Added to these fabulous lies and distortions we now have various courts which unlawfully utilize aspects of Sharia to adjudicate civil cases.  The bottom line is that the American public is being carefully and systematically indoctrinated in favor of radical Islam.

President Obama had been quickly transforming our society into a socialistic morass that resembles more Mussolini’s fascist state than the republican ideal he has sworn to uphold. Hillary Clinton promises to continue that legacy. With the onslaught of Islam its color is might just as quickly become Islamo-fascism.

If Sharia Law and its denigration of women begins to be implemented in America, as Islam promises it will, Donald Trumps’ ugly talk about women will seem a small matter.
