Michigan State University, Professor Wichman

hat tip ryby


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.

Cordially,

S. Wichman Professor of Mechanical Engineering


As you can imagine, the Muslim group at the university didn't like this too well.
They're demanding that Wichman be reprimanded and the university impose
mandatory diversity training for faculty and mandate a seminar on hate and discrimination for all freshmen.
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.

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.

What's amazing here is not that the good professor said something (although I'm impressed he did), but rather that the university stood by him!

So true, and considering Wichman's specialty, it's more proof to what MK Dr. Arieh Eldad, MD, said.

Thank you for letting us know.

The fact that so few know about this professor's confrontation is due to the media & it's inability to report anything that is remotely close to the truth any more.
The Michigan State University had Better stand behind this man & Not Back Down.
Weakness on our part Will enable 'us' to be overrun & dominated by Muslims....bank on it.

Batya said...

True, thanks for commenting.

This story should be going around the world over and over again as a reminder that they plan to take over the world. From the looks of the maps for the past 1000 years, they are succeeding. Now the US has two elected to Congress. Great Britain recently approved the use of Sharia law. If that isn't a creeping cancer on the face of the planet, then neither is communism.

true
Keep spreading the word, passing the link.

The "American Way" is to breed hate? I am not Islamic but I can't categorize a group of people based on a small minority that practice the methods mentioned in the letter. Had those cartoons depicted J.C. as a terrorist the circumstances would be different. Shame on those who spread hate and impose fear on Muslims or any other group not declaring themselves "Christian". Educators, especially, should not be so ignorant.
