Default freedom of speech

Professor Wichman E-mail

Claim: A Michigan professor sent an e-mail telling Muslim students to leave the country.
Status: True.

The story begins at Michigan State University with a mechanical engineering professor named Indred 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 Muslim 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 Muslims 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

=============================

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.

================================================== ==========

Send this to your friends, and ask them to do the same.

Tell them to keep passing it around until the whole country gets it.

We are in a war.

This political correctness crap is getting old and killing us.

==================

If you agree with this,

Please send it to all your friends,

If not simply delete it.

GO, MICHIGAN STATE

That is great. However, I've been on the oppisite side of this situation. Not all Muslims are hateful people. But, He does make a Good point.

Yes, but at least it is true, unlike half the cool stuff like this that is posted.
