Hooray for a Michigan State Professor
At Michigan State University, a mechanical engineering professor named Indrek 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 you 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.
I. S. Wichman Professor of Mechanical Engineering
Of course, as to be expected, the group is demanding that Professor Wichman be reprimanded and that the university impose diversity training for faculty. This whole thing made me laugh, as I worked for a university of over two decades and the composition of the faculty was about as diverse as one could get. Most issues between faculty and students originated because of existing 'habits.' Some cultures are 'touchy feely' while others detest being touched in any way. Diversity training simply exposes individuals the differences, which they already know...it doesn't change who they are.
Now the local 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. When does it end? For one, I'm tired of individuals coming to our country and trying to change our constitutional rights to fit their countries. Why not stay home and learn if we are such an affront to your sensibilities? Take a good look America, at how many of your tax dollars go to support International students. You'll be shocked...and probably appalled that we are teaching some who are potential enemies to kill us.
For its part, the university is standing its ground in support of Professor Wichman, saying the e-mail was private, and they don't intend to publicly condemn his remarks. Trust me, it's not because they have balls enough to really take a stand. It could hurt their funding. This political correctness crap is getting old and killing us.
It's okay for 'less moderate' muslims to behead, stone, and mutilate, but we can't stand up and say we dislike it. I guess that makes us that "dismissive, derisive, and arrogant," America that President Obama apologized for. Time to wake up...this is a 'growing' map of the Jihad Training Camps in our country:
