    What's interesting is that no Muslim students seem to have said a word about this. And as you pointed out, the poster was not removed. So what was the point in the OP, except to generate more derision toward people who don't want to unnecessarily offend others?

    You can choose to believe it. It is your right.

    There are times when memorials hide agendas. What is the purpose? To gin up hate against Muslims? Or to to inform the public on Islamic terrorism? Why just Islamic terrorism? I think those are good questions to ask don’t you?

    How do posters like that help to put an end to ideological hatred?

    How would it end terrorism? How does it it address the many complex factors around the world driving terrorism? What solutions does it propose or hint at?

    What does this have to do with conservatives and liberals?

    You are essentially stating that a campaign of hate is itself a “righteous” crusade against hate. Historically, those things usually result in violence against innocent people. Are you ok with that? Or are there better ways of sending out a message...one that sends a united message against Terrorism...or addresses terrorism of all kinds. I remember Oklahoma City. Do you?

    George Bush was a conservative. He advocated not forgetting. He wasn’t accused of Islamaphobia. Maybe it has more to do with the message than the messenger.

    In the meantime, rightwing media is in a frenzy of news stories claiming Ripon banned YAF’s posters when in fact, they did not.

    I imagine the OP posted the story because tards are again trying to shut people down, as do you, when they don’t like the subject or think someone, somewhere might be offended by something.

    We don’t know who brought it to the attention of the thought police, AFAIK.

    It might have been a Muslim (s), it might have been SJWs who so enjoy getting offended on behalf of others they are busy being patronisingly paternal over.

    Why do you even require the basics of why a thread exists explained to you! Lol.

    Because why this thread was started is the same as why the poster was hung.
    As Coyote pointed out, the college did not remove the poster. The committee that reviews material for bias commented, AS WAS THEIR RIGHT, that it might be offensive to others. You obviously don't want them their exercising THEIR rights, do you?
    Same old, same old arm twisting and bawling that people are disagreeing with you.

    How does it “clearly” identify “the enemy”? If...by some bizarre turn of events...you woke up from a 50 year coma...and saw it...what would you make of it?

    What would college kids make of it? And who would some of them target?

    What on earth are you wittering on about? I accept that people have the right to whine about the poster and to draw imaginary conclusions as to the motivation of those who create them, after all, that’s all the Left is good for.

    I also reserve my right to say you are wrong, IMO.

    It’s actually you who has a problem with people telling you they disagree with your view, and with people telling you your fantasies about why people choose to remember the murdered are just nasty speculation on your part and nothing more, and that you don’t have the right or ability to tell those people what to do.

    It’s been you who’s attempting to lay down the law regarding how other people memorialise the victims, and it’s you who took credit like a 5 year old when you thought the poster had been removed.

    You need to get a grip, OL, because you really do seem to be very confused on the whole matter.

    Now it seems you are objecting that the thread even exists - on the basis of motivations YOU are ascribing to the OP.
    Fascism by prognostication, courtesy of OL :rolleyes:

    I pointed out to you that the poster had not been removed OL, when you were gloating like a 5 year old that you’d ‘won’ - as you thought the poster had been removed. Forgotten that already???:poke:

    BYW, you mentioned there would be ‘consequences’ for putting up the poster, so I’m still waiting for you to tell me what you’d like those consequences to be.
    TIA.

    Once again, this has become your rant against me personally, Tilly. Every thread winds up the same way. I'm sure it bores everyone else who has something relevant to say as it does me.

    I’m not ranting, my dear, I’m simply responding to your gems - and to your assertions that you know what people are thinking and therefore they need to be prevented from memorialising the victims of terrorism cos you don’t like it - based upon your powers of telepathy.

    You’ve even asserted that the thread and OP are islamophobic because they’ve reported the story and you can read their mind as to why they’ve reported the story :uhoh3:

    If you don’t like me addressing your authoritarianism, try being more reasonable.
    Other than the fact you’re a fascist, I’m sure you’re great :wink_2: lol.
