UPDATE: THE COLLEGE IS NOW BACKPEDALING ON THIS POLICY BECAUSE OF THE OUTRAGE. The statement with quotes from Young Americans for Freedom clearly says that the administrators made the argument against a poster memorializing 9/11.
Do you think the poster below should be displayed?
Administrators at a college in Wisconsin have decided that a Sept. 11 memorial CANNOT take place on campus. The reason is absolutely ridiculous and offensive. These people are more worried it could offend Muslim students than memorializing the over 3,000 people who lost their lives that day. We’re wondering if these administrators remember that people of ALL FAITHS died on September 11, 2001.
Ripon College is the private school that cited bias reports from last year’s Sept. 11 memorial project. The project is a part of Young America’s Foundation’s iconic patriotism initiative.
The Bias Protocol Board claims “students from a Muslim background would feel singled out and/or harassed.”
YAF’s Spencer Brown had this to say about the decision by the board:
“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. YAF’s leadership in creating meaningful memorials on this important date in our nation’s history ensures that the rising generation remembers the 2,977 innocent lives lost. The administrators’ reliance on feelings rather than facts betrays their intention to cower from the truth rather than highlight the scourge of radical Islamist terror for what it is: evil.”
