Hooray for Michigan State University and Professor Wichman!!!
Well, what do we have here. Looks like a small case of some people being able to
dish it out, but not take it. Let's start at the top. The story begins at
Michigan State University with 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 "*****s"
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, 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.
Cordially, I. S. Wichman, Professor of Mechanical Engineering"
Well! As you can imagine, the Muslim group at the university didn't like this
too well. They're demanding Wichman be reprimanded and mandatory diversity
training for faculty and a seminar on hate and discrimination for freshman. How
nice. But now the Michigan 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.
For its part, the university is standing its ground. They say the e-mail was
private, and they don't intend to publicly condemn his remarks. That will
probably change. Wichman says he never intended the e-mail to be made public,
and wouldn't have used the same strong language if he'd known it was going to
How's the left going to handle this one? If you're in favor of the freedom of
speech, as in the case of Ward Churchill, will the same protections be demanded
for Indrek Wichman? I doubt it. Hey folks, send this to everybody and ask them
to do the same and tell them to keep passing it around till the whole country
gets it. We are in a war.
