    Charges Against Muslim Students Prompt Debate Over Free Speech

    Muslim students at the University of California at Irvine have a history of seeking to silence those with whom they disagree. This practice is becoming increasingly intolerable. They are abusing their venue and status.



    IRVINE, Calif. When administrators at the University of California, Irvine, decided to suspend the Muslim Student Union for a quarter over the disruption of a speech last year by the Israeli ambassador to the United States, most thought the latest controversy on campus had ended.

    District Attorney Tony Rackauckas of Orange County, however, disagreed and filed misdemeanor criminal charges last week against the 11 student protesters, accusing them of disturbing a public meeting and engaging in a conspiracy to do so...."

    Oh btw, UC Irvine is one of the lesser UC campuses. It is not widely respected throughout the state.

    There can be no tolerance for the intolerant. Here's some video on the subject:

    Tolerance is only for those that agree with progressive causes. Anyone else not so much.

    Wait... so its the progressives that are tolerated... and the something else's that are not, yet the thread is about charges against progressive radicals? We are to tolerate hate speech? But not this.

    The word is out now about UC Irvine students. The Muslim students who are intolerant of free speech and the pattern of intolerance tolerated at UC Irvine for many years now has allowed the entire University to be viewed as base.

    The word is out now among big employers. This will have an impact on employer recruiting at UC Irvine. Good luck finding decent jobs kiddies. You're gonna be blackballed.

    Re: Charges Against Muslim Students Prompt Debate Over Free Speech

    Well from what I got from the article was that there was a sponsored talked and these students went into the auditorium and purposefully created a disturbance in order to shut it down. I don't know if I would necessarily press charges, particularly at this point. But that type of behavior does warrant removal from the building. In the end, people will say all sorts of things and we have to allow it. But the school should also be interested in its public appearance and the conduct of its students. They themselves can take action when groups or individuals break the rules of student conduct. That seemed to be what happened here, the group was suspended for a quarter.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    I hope they are charged with something. That was disgusting. We are a country that allows free speech, so it should be allowed, and those who try to stop it, should pay a price.
