Common Sense on Campus

Unfit to attend university.

When Esme Allman, a second-year law student at Edinburgh University, issued a maliciously-worded complaint to the university authorities concerning Robbie Travers on September 6, she must have been confident that her status as a black female politically correct activist would guarantee a listening ear. Her complaint (see below) was constructed in such a way that it seemed Mr Travers would find no way out of the predicament in which she had placed him. Had the university acted on her charges, there is little doubt that Travers’s university career and future prospects would be damaged beyond repair. That certainly seems to have been her intent. The story was widely reported in the British press and here on Gatestone, for whom Travers had written. Her specific claim — that Travers’s calling Islamic State fighters “barbarians” and mocking their aspiration to marry 72 virgins in heaven should they die as martyrs in battle was racist and Islamophobic — did not go down with members of the British public, who were only too aware of the multiple barbarities committed by IS terrorists abroad and in Europe, including in the UK.

    When Canadian legislation based on M-103 comes into effect, the lives and careers of people like Travers will be toast. Even if the complaints come to nothing, legal costs will sink the victims.

      Yep… The process will be the punishment.

        Unless….we collectively set up a foundation to help offset the costs of spurious charges like these. AND the accused decide to make a counter complaint.

    Cat Man, take a look at this interview with that filthy girl that came out today.

    When you bestow unfounded racial privilege on minorities and then weaponize their victim status through imagined and grossly exaggerated grievance, you get Esme Allman, a a malicious pig of a woman who has no business being anywhere near a university.

      ‘BME liberation group’ – liberation from whom? or what? smug, rich and clueless. Misguided?

      Yep, she got in because she was black, not because she was smart. She wasn’t even smart enough to realize it. If she was in the least bit smart she would have lived by the axiom, “better to be thought a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt”.

        That’s a huge part of the problem. Blacks, and most minorities, can be as stone cold retarded as they want to be and there are never any repercussions as their intellectual acumen, creativeness, or productivity are NOT why they are there. They are there because the color of their skin checks a diversity box. They are a talisman, an anthropomorphic amulet that protects against deadly allegations of racism.

    Everyone’s missing an opportunity to troll the hell out of these people by launching thousands of attacks against them and every single word they utter or type. Crush them under a torrent of complaints to the school and to the government. And redouble your efforts at their first response to these charges and complaints. Use every threat in the book. Cal them racists and bigots. Demand their expulsion their public destruction. Bury them. Make them un-people.
