University of New Mexico student government decries ‘Islamophobia’

16476_871937329494940_2094763529186491561_nA decision by the University of New Mexico’s student government is raising eyebrows.

A newly approved resolution says given the recent events of the Charlie Hebdo shooting, the assassination of three students in North Carolina and the Molotov cocktail thrown at the Albuquerque Islamic Center in 2014:

“The university should stand strong in opposition of Islamophobia,” and the student government “urges the University of New Mexico to publicly state their opposition to Islamophobia.”

“I think it’s a great resolution and I’m very proud of our senate and president for signing this,” said Jenna Hagengruber, Vice President of the Associated Students of UNM.

Now, the university is facing backlash. Some critics said the new resolution is an infringement on students’ First Amendment right to free speech.

Blogs and websites have targeted the school with headlines like, “The University of New Mexico just made it illegal to criticize anything Islamic or Muslim” and “Coming to a college near you: Sharia!”…

      Islamofascists use freedom of expression to denounce the freedom of non-Muslims who criticize Islam and then remove their freedom of expression.

      The Islamofascists want freedom of expression for Muslims only.

    What morons – making a resolution against people who blog, write letters to their government representatives and who occasionally twitter a nasty tweet! All those poor, poor muslims getting their government benefits and having to endure a funny look when one of their co-religionists kill over and over again. The horror…. the horror.

      Will the University of New Mexico student government oppose criticism of Christianity?

        I should think not, this cabal has only one goal in mind … the destruction of anything good in society.

    The University of New Mexico student government wants to outlaw freedom of expression. Hardly surprising, but sad. They think Muslims are persecuted, when Muslims are presently the greatest persecutors in the 21rst century!
    The ‘Islamophobia’ slur really means that no one may criticize Islam. It’s a word that liberals think is about an unfairly repressed minority. The joke’s on them!
    Muslim apologists are using the word ‘Islamophobia’ to substitute for ‘blasphemy’. Under Sharia law no kafir may criticize Islam or even speak about Islam.
    The Progressives, the Leftards and the cultural Marxists have been duped by clever verbal jihadists and taqiyya artists.
    The idea of the Muslim apologists is to outlaw criticism of jihad and resistance to Islamization.
