Michigan State

Hooray for Michigan State University (The Spartans) and Professor

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.

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!), burning's of Christian
churches, the continued persecution of Coptic Christians in Egypt, the
imposition of Sharia law on non-Muslims, the 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, 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

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 get out.

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.

What happened to our freedom of speech???
