Princeton U.: Free Speech for Far-Left Only, Not Former Terrorists Denouncing Jihad

By Debbie Schlussel
Unfortunately, the fakery of “free speech” at our nation’s universities is something we’ve extensively documented.
Next time you hear lofty university leftists pontificating about the “free exchange of ideas” on campus or the need to allow free speech for even terrorists, like Sami Al-Arian (at the University of Michigan), and terrorist groups, like International Solidarity Movement (ISM) to recruit terrorists on campus (at Duke University), don’t believe that “free speech” applies to you. That means military recruiters and anyone to the right of far left. They need not be so misguided as to think the First Amendment applies to them.

Princeton: No Tigers for Free Speech Here

Case in point is Princeton University. The Ivy League school was the site of an event featuring three reformed former Palestinian terrorists, Walid Shoebat, Ibrahim Abdallah and Zak Anani, who were going to speak out against terrorism and promote peace. But the idea of this was so anathema to leftist totalitarians running Princeton cancelled the event, saying the word “terrorist” in promotions for the event was “too inflammatory.” HUH? These are FORMER terrorists (the word “former” is on the materials, too, as in “former terrorists”) who have renounced and condemned Islamic terrorism and jihad.
The event was important, especially because one of the former terrorists, Abdallah, was born in Dearborn, Michigan, and emigrated to Israel at age 17 to become a PLO terrorist, seriously injuring people until he saw the light. We could learn a lot from his story.
But Princeton doesn’t want you to hear his story. We wonder why.

And just how many “think tank” participants go to this wussy school?
It must be “wussy” if the administration feels the word “terrorist” is to inflammatory.
These folks can’t take the heat. Keep them out of the kitchen.

Ex-terrorists have no free speech

History News Network (via IRIS Blog) reports that the Princeton University has cancelled a speaking event with three former terrorists who wanted to explain the evils of terrorism.

The overwhelming majority of universities, colleges, and even government-run high schools (public high schools) are dominated by “tolerant”, “inclusive”, “diversity-minded”, “free speech”, “compassionate” LIBERALS. Translated, it means that those same LIBERALS are;
A. Intolerant of any ideas other than their own,
B. Non-inclusive of anyone who doesn’t toe the LIBERAL line,
C. Non-diversity-minded of anyone who looks normal and is pro-American,
D. Do not believe in free speech and will censor anyone who disagrees with them,
E. Non-compassionate for anyone who is not a LIBERAL.

I suspect you’ll want to update this page, so as not to give the impression you’re behind those three “former terrorists.”
