Stop the World, I want to get off.
The 17th anniversary of September 11, 2001 is upon us and the Young Americans for Freedom (YAF) at Ripon College had been planning a 9/11 project.
Evidently, the school’s “Bias Protocol Board” is not too enthused over it.
YAF’s “9/11: Never Forget Project,” which began 15 years ago, consists of 2,977 flags representing each life that was extinguished on that day of infamy, as well as a poster featuring multiple images and photographs of the Islamic terrorists who murdered them.
According to YAF, its members were informed that the project, particularly the poster, is objectionable because it “relentlessly” targets “one religious organization, one religious group, one religious identity [.]” As such, it gives rise to an environment within which “students from a Muslim background would feel singled out and/or harassed.”
