The University of Minnesota-Twin Cities (UMN), has not had any type of remembrance in place for September 11. Because of this, the Republican student group representative for the Minnesota Student Association (MSA) which is the student undergraduate government, proposed a resolution that would acknowledge all anniversaries of September 11.
Theo Menon, the Republican representative said,I wrote this resolution because I think we need to recognize the victims of this world-changing event,” said Menon, “The innocent men, women, and servicemen who died on that day deserve to be honored.
As you can imagine, in this insanely hypersensitive and politically correct world we live in, someone was going to throw a sh*t-fit over this and ensure the resolution did not get approved.
It was rejected on Tuesday, November 10 thanks to some militant objectors led by a pussified man with an agenda, MSA representative and Director of Diversity and Inclusion, David Algadi.
Algadi adamantly lead the charge to reject the resolution by saying,
The passing of this resolution might make a space that is unsafe for students on campus even more unsafe. Islamophobia and racism fueled through that are alive and well.
As if that was not outlandish enough, he added,
Holding a moment of recognition over a tragedy committed by non-white perpetrators could increase racist attitudes on campus, asking, “When will we start having moments of silence for all of the times white folks have done something terrible?”
The President of UMN’s Young Americans for Liberty, Nathan Amundson responded with,
This resolution was non-controversial and was supported by the MSA’s President and Vice-President; however, several members, in exchanges with CRs rep Theo Menon, were militant in their opposition to it due to a perceived bias toward Muslims.
Cameron Holl, a Student Senator for the College of Liberal Arts supported Menon and Amundson by saying,
There was no reason for any student not to vote on this resolution and much of the dissenting discussion was wildly speculative and unrelated to the resolution itself. Additionally, the same people who voted to close discussion early didn’t offer any amendments or changes to the resolution to find compromise and do their due part as a member of a forum, which I think shows a lack of effort and respect for other’s opinions and beliefs.
In an upcoming meeting Menon and Holl will be introducing a revised version of the resolution. There is no word yet on what revisions they will be making in order to appease the liberally insane idiots attending The University of Minnesota.
