Note the title below: “Young Trump supporters told they need to fight terrorism on college campuses by ‘exposing Islam’ because all Muslims are ‘radical.” Then note the first line of the report: “Students attending a conservative conference on Thursday were told they needed to ‘expose Islam’ for the ‘ugly thing’ it is.”
Both lines have different meanings.
First of all, I have yet to meet a respected conservative who has categorized all Muslims as “radicals.” This is another example of fake news.
The second sentence about the need to “expose Islam for the ugly thing it is” is not without merit with regard to the Islamically-sanctioned abuses against women, gays, infidels, apostates, etc. Those who doubt this should try arguing with the Ayatollah Khamenei — the Iranian Supreme Leader, the Marja — or the Grand Mufti of Al Azhar, or the Sunni and Shia Islamic schools of jurisprudence.
Leftist arrogance has made Leftists ridiculous, but also a foremost obstacle for those who are trying to preserve freedom and human rights. Such Leftists apparently have no problem with the untold millions murdered in the name of the “ugly thing” that is preached against infidels, women, gays, apostates etc.
It has become habitual for Leftist “journalists” to brazenly lie about conservatives.
Shame on John Haltiwanger and Business Insider for publishing this sham of a report.
“Young Trump supporters told they need to fight terrorism on college campuses by ‘exposing Islam’ because all Muslims are ‘radical,’” by John Haltiwanger, Business Insider, December 21, 2018:
Students attending a conservative conference on Thursday were told they needed to “expose Islam” for the “ugly thing” it is.
The conference was held by Turning Point USA, a conservative advocacy group that has gained significant momentum in the Trump era. Its president and founder, Charlie Kirk, is close friends with Donald Trump Jr. and has met with and been retweeted by President Donald Trump.
Kirk’s communications director, Candace Owens, has made headlines in recent months because of her interactions with the rapper Kanye West and her connection to West’s infamous Oval Office meeting with the president. The publicity Owens got in relation to West helped elevate Turning Point USA’s national stature.
Thursday’s event, part of the conservative advocacy group’s annual Student Action Summit in West Palm Beach, Florida, saw closer links to today’s mainstream conservativism than it did a fringe right-wing movement.
Speakers at the conference included the younger Trump, Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross, the Fox News hosts Tucker Carlson and Laura Ingraham, and the British politician Nigel Farage.
Beyond the talks from the main speakers, TPUSA held smaller, breakout sessions hosted by its staff and in some cases other organizations, such as The Heritage Foundation.
Sophia Witt, the director of Israel outreach for Turning Point USA, directed the “F U-nity: Addressing Terrorism on Campuses” session at the conference.
Speaking with several dozen young attendees, Witt decried campus groups that claim solidarity with the Palestinians, singling out a group called Queers for Palestine….
