Students walk out of veteran’s speech to protest his use of term ‘radical Islam’


More than 100 students walked out on retired U.S. Army Lt. Colonel Allen West on Thursday as he began a speech at Saint Louis University to discuss the threat of radical Islam.

The students protesters — led by the SLU Rainbow Alliance and the Muslim Students’ Association — had arrived early and filled many of the seats in the two-story auditorium where West was slated to speak. As he took the stage they stood up and filed out.

At issue is West’s use of the term “radical Islam” — also the subject of his speech.

    I concur that his term “radical Islam’ was unaccetable as it is incorrect. There is no such thing as ‘radical Islam’, there is only Islam. That the queers and Muslims do not like the term ‘radical Islam’ however had nothing to do with it not being correct or accurate. The two groups deserve each other.

      the muslims love giving the queers free airtime.

    I only care because they tied up all those seats.

    In the coming years, the first “Real” black president of the US, not the present day Mullato in chief.

    Who wants them in the room anyway?

      The muslims have a tendence to suffer sudden jihadi syndrome in public settings when surrounded by infidels and the pressence of gays seems to significantly increase the chances of it happening.

        for the gay’s sake it would be prudent to lock all roof top access.

    I am sure that these “protesters” ONLY went to West’s talk so that they could “walk out”. I am also sure that none of them have a clue as to what he says about anything, let alone pigslam.

      virtue signalling is deaf dumb and blind,

    this is the new ploy of campus communists and jihadists grab all tickets and deny a platform to those who dissent their politics . they are trying this to disrupt Milos talks and their success must be limited or lose even more free speech on campus.
    Here is progressive fascism at work.

    • Justin St.Denis

      Can’t you just SMELL their fear, though? I luvLuvLUV the fact that they are virtually shitting themselves. So there’s a smell of progressive shit to cope with as well which is less lovely. But their FEAR smells like the most gorgeous blooms from Paradise…..

    Isis is tossing gays of tops of buildings yet gay groups fully support all forms of islam.

    • Alain

      Yes, it reminds me of all those Western women with their ‘Welcome’ signs.

  • pdxnag

    Isn’t it elementary mainstream Islam to acknowledge that Mohammad is reported to have said that he was made victorious through terror? Islamic hyper-violent supremacism is not really radical, it is elementary.

  • Again, air-lift these snowflakes and leave them in the diverse utopia known as Syria.

    That’s just for the street theatre alone.
