Macer Gifford, who fought Isis in Syria

Why are student-union officials censoring criticism of Islamic State?

Just when you thought the self-important, ban-happy uber-bureaucrats who run student unions couldn’t get any worse, they go and No Platform a guy who fought with the Kurds against Isis. Yes, not content with expunging lads’ mags from campus, crying for the censorship of everyone from Germaine Greer to Dapper Laughs, and wailing about Robin Thicke’s ‘Blurred Lines’ like outraged nuns at a school disco, now they have silenced someone who spent five months facing down the head-choppers of the Islamic State.

    They do this because they are nominally on the head chopper’s side.
    They like the head cutters and don’t like those that fight against them.

      Islamic State will demand that they go all in. There is no tip toeing around conversion or accommodation. I think their message is: Kill yourself an Infidel or shut up and die.

      Those Muslims already allowed to breach the walls are the tip of the Islamic Conquest Spear, not a vulnerable pitiable minority.
