Student suspended for debating Islamic extremism with Muslim peer in debate club

A Missouri high school that suspended a student for making critical comments about Islamic extremism says he’s not allowed to appeal the finding of wrongdoing.

Senior Alex Lonsdale, a member of Liberty High’s nationally ranked debate club, says he was just trying to have a friendly debate.

During his free period Oct. 17 at the public school near Kansas City, Lonsdale joined a spontaneous conversation among acquaintances about the nature of Islam.

    “Liberty” High?
    LOL !

    Of course you can’t do that. It’s against sharia law!

      Yes, Kafkatrapping at its best. You are accused of a crime and punished for it, but are not permitted to defend yourself nor ask questions since doing so compounds the crime and affirms your guilt to the authorities.

    He must be punished with beheading! Diversity is our strength!

    • Watchman

      Apple sacking their Diversity chief for apparently believing the white people could be considered members of a Diverse collection of people proves that the leftist definition of Diversity is “Non-white”.

      Thus to them, ‘Diversity is our strength’ means ‘Excluding whites is our strength’, an assertion for which there is no proof and indeed there is scientific evidence that it is actually wrong. (Ref: )

    After his suspension he will have an even deeper understanding of the true nature of islam.

    • Watchman

      If this experience inoculates him against leftist thought processes, then it will truly have been worthwhile endeavour and possibly the best lesson he has learnt from his entire year at school.

      And hopefully a deeper understanding of leftist totalitarianism.

  • Watchman

    “Lonsdale said he has been ostracized by some students at school: Several now believe he is a racist.”
    The school seems to have demanded that Alex Lonsdale change his name to ‘Emmanuel Goldstein’ so they can direct the students’ Two Minutes Of Hate sessions against him.

      He must repent and convert to Islam. Praise Allah!

      • Watchman

        I think the school was attempting to force him to take the other islam-approved alternative for the infidel: pay the jizya and feel himself subdued.

    Apologize for how you MADE someone feel? Oh hell no.

    Might as well call it what it is – punished for committing blasphemy.
