Note: Col. West has just landed in St. Louis as he is scheduled to speak this evening at Saint Louis University (SLU) sponsored by YAF’s Fred Allen Lecture Series at 7:00 p.m. CST. You can find the live stream of this event here.
In the meantime, we’re delighted to bring you this little tidbit. It’s both hilarious and disturbing at the same time.
Just to bring you up to speed on the story so far… per YAF, An administrator banned members of the campus conservative club from including the words “radical Islam” on advertisements for the event, claiming Lt. Col. West, a veteran of Operation Desert Storm and Operation Iraqi Freedom, did not have enough “experience” to speak on that topic.
Second, administrators sent out multiple campus-wide emails trashing West for allegedly “offending” the school’s Muslim Students Association. The president of the school even referred to him as “distasteful” and diminished his credentials by calling him a “provocateur.”
The school then attempted to further cave by demanding a liberal professor speak before Col. West in order to “contextualize” his commentary. As he said this morning, I will not consent. I do not recall ever hearing of any liberal speaker on a campus having their remarks “put in context” before they spoke. I just have to ask, do we still live in America? Do we still have free speech, or are we only allowed to speak when the leftist progressives are accepting? If we’re in a country where we are censored from saying two words — “radical Islam” — then the enemy has already won. But I am not surrendering.
Now we hear the apologists and snowflakes have their own protest planned. Get this…it actually involves CUPCAKES. I’m not kidding.
This email was sent around to members of SLU Rainbow Alliance, with details of their protest.
Everyone will wear white shirts, come early at 5:30PM to the CGC and we’ll have a small meeting right before we go inside. Then as we proceed into the auditorium we will try to take up as many seats as possible. When he gets introduced, everyone stands up and walks out of the event. We will leave row by row, we will start with the first row and work the way to the back. Walk towards the back, out the side entrances, and proceed outside the CGC.
[EDITOR’S NOTE: Col. West would like to dedicate the song “Walk On By” to all those participating in the protest]
Outside, we will have open dialogue, help with the cupcakes against hate that will be taking donations in which the proceeds will go to Syrian refugees, as well as educating those who are open about Islam.
Also know that what is being said can be extremely triggering for some, so please know that we cannot ensure that tonight will be in a safe space, but we do encourage everyone that is comfortable to come out and support MSA.
Excuse me while I pick myself up off the floor after rolling around laughing (MFAO). CUPCAKES AGAINST HATE? Are you kidding me?
I want one of those damned cupcakes because I know eating one will make the world a safer place. In fact, I think we should start bombing ISIS with cupcakes because a. they’re biodegradable (depending on the frosting color I’m sure) AND b. maybe if they eat enough, ISIS fighters will die of obesity or at least won’t be able to run as fast.
Even better, why don’t we start a hashtag and cupcake campaign to show some compassion, unity and love that will thwart ISIS, Boko Haram and other violent Islamist groups completely! Perhaps #CupcakesAgainstBeheading or #CupcakesAgainstMassShootingInGayNightclubs. Maybe that will work?
But wait, it gets even more interesting.
The Muslim Students Association sent out its own statement decrying Col. West and his comments.
But first, a little background. During the U.S. v Holy Land Foundation trial (the largest terror-funding case in history – to date, not counting the Clinton Foundation), a document was introduced as evidence called “An Explanatory Memorandum on the General Strategic Goal for the Group in North America.”
The document, which you can read here, laid out the Muslim Brotherhood’s plans for “civilizational jihad.” Author Mohammed Akram, states; The Ikhwan [the brethren] must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and “sabotaging” its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God’s religion is made victorious over all other religions.
At the end of the document, is an attachment showing “a list of our organizations and the organizations of our friends.” Number two on that list is…drumroll…The Muslim Students’ Association.
So with that “contextual background,” we present the MSA’s comments:
By now, many of you have heard the comments made by Former Lieutenant Colonel Allen West regarding the Muslim Students’ Association. On September 22, 2016, he stated that the Muslim Students’ Association (MSA) at Saint Louis University is a “stealth jihad radical Islamic campus organization” and that the MSA is “an affiliate of the Muslim Brotherhood.”
The Muslim Students’ Association at Saint Louis University condemns these statements made by this individual. These allegations, which align the Muslim Students’ Association with terrorist organizations, have no basis.
Hmm. Then why are they listed on the Muslim Brotherhood’s own list of “our organizations and the organizations of our friends?”
And waaaait a minute…did the Muslim Students’ Association just call the Muslim Brotherhood a “terrorist organization?” If so, will they publicly denounce the Muslim Brotherhood and its goals and objectives? Waiting…waiting…
I certainly hope the festivities today will be filmed. It should be very entertaining. But it is also incredibly disturbing to see this “civilizational jihad” being played out before our very eyes. This. Must. Not. Stand. This ludicrous and dangerous political correctness is, drip by drip, undermining the very foundation of our nation.
But we don’t have to stand idly by. Join us in calling the office of SLU President Fred Pestello at 314-977-7777, tweeting @SLU_Official, and @SLUPresident. Demand Col. West has the opportunity to share his conservative message and most importantly, the TRUTH.
