Fw: A Michigan Professor Sent an Email Telling Muslin Students to Leave

Claim: A Michigan professor sent an e-mail telling Muslim students to
leave the country.

Status: True.

The story begins at Michigan State University with a mechanical
engineering professor named Indrek Wichman. Wichman sent an e-mail to
the Muslim Student's Association. The e-mail was in response to the
students' protest of the Danish cartoons that portrayed the Prophet
Muhammad as a terrorist.

The group had complained the cartoons were 'hate speech' Enter Professor
Wichman. In his e-mail, he said the following:

Dear Moslem Association,

As a professor of Mechanical Engineering here at MSU I intend to protest
your protest. I am offended not by cartoons, but by more mundane things
like beheadings of civilians, cowardly attacks on public buildings,
suicide murders, murders of Catholic priests(the latest in Turkey),
burnings of Christian churches, the continued persecution of Coptic
Christians in Egypt, the imposition of Sharia law on non-Muslims, the
rapes of Scandinavian girls and women (called 'whores' in your culture),
the murder of film directors in Holland ,and the rioting and looting in
Paris France .

This is what offends me, a soft-spoken person and academic, and many, many
of my colleagues. I counsel you dissatisfied, aggressive, brutal, and
uncivilized slave-trading Moslems to be very aware of this as you proceed
with your infantile 'protests.'

If you do not like the values of the West - see the 1st Amendment -you are
free to leave. I hope for God's sake that most of you choose that option.
Please return to your ancestral homelands and build them up yourselves
instead of troubling Americans.


I. S. Wichman

Professor of Mechanical Engineering

As you can imagine, the Muslim group at the university didn't like this
too well. They're demanding that Wichman be reprimanded and the
university impose mandatory diversity training for faculty and mandate a
seminar on hate and discrimination for all freshmen.

Now the local chapter of CAIR has jumped into the fray. CAIR, the Council
on American-Islamic Relations, apparently doesn't believe that the good
professor had the right to express his opinion.

For its part, the university is standing its ground in support of
Professor Wichman, saying the e-mail was private, and they don't intend
to publicly condemn his remarks.

Send this to your friends, and ask them to do the same. Tell them to keep
passing it around until the whole country gets it. We are in a war.
This political correctness crap is getting old and killing us.

If you agree with this, please send it to all your friends,

if not simply delete it.

God damn. How dare those students be offended by a professor at their university calling them "aggressive, brutal, and
uncivilized," as well as "slave-trading," and demanding that US citizens leave the country for the crime of exercising their own First Amendment right to free assembly? The forward writer is correct: political correctness is out of control in this country if a professor can be publicly criticized for direct slander against a student group.

I love the ol "Love it or leave it" line people use to cap off a debate; like a CSI style piece of evidence that says, "Yup, that's all there is to say. Case closed mother f$#^er."
The first amendment is awesome, I consider myself a constitutional absolutist. But that doesn't mean you can go around using the first amendment irresponsibly. By that I mean things like yelling "FIRE!" in a crowded theater.
Likewise with the professor. When you're a teacher, you hold a profound position that requires trust in your ability to perform that job in an unbiased fassion. When students learned of his bigotted views, now the professor's ability to perform his job in an unbiased manor is put into question.
Now the professor is completely free to exercise his first amendment rights. But not from a position where your unbiasedness has to be 100% above reproach. Just do it in a backwoods cabin and keep your "I'm going to blame your whole race for the horible crimes of a view psychos." Wouldn't us white people get a little pissed if we were constantly reminded of the crimes of our ancestors? The answer is yes bigots, we would.

If you look it up on Snopes, the prof claimed that he didn't mean to e-mail the whole organization, just one student, and that it was done in haste. Irnoically, its being used as a right-wing forward with a hearty "amen" attached.

He also was never officially sanction, just received a warning.

What persecution!

At least he's not offended by beheadings of soldiers, just civilians.
"Please return to your ancestral homelands," because you can only stay in America if your forefathers persecuted, raped, tortured, and murdered the indigenous people that used to live here.

snark off: I admit to finding a lot of things that count as "Muslim" to be offensive, such as a recent public flogging of woman in the Swat part of Pakistan for allegedly talking to a non-family member male (or maybe having an affair). And yes, the Saudi's and other kill women for talking to non-family males, and there are genital mutilations in Africa in particular (which is NOT sanctioned by the Koran but done in the name of it anyway). Yes, it is ugly and awful and all of that.

But what do we have to be so proud of here in this christianist country?? As one post says: what about the genocide of the native americans (watch the PBS show on it beginning Monday 4/13)??

What about torture, which these right-wing forward folks wish to fall on their knees and praise Jeebus for having W endorse?

As usual, a rhetorical: I don't get it. IOKIYAR is the usual zeitgeist.

This professor was wrong to express opinions and got busted for being stupid in how he used his email: good! It shows exactly who he is.

As one post says, teachers have a responsibility to their students and their institutions to remain neutral and not exhibit naked hatred towards part of their student groups.

There are many Muslims around the globe who equally decry such practices. It should be axiomatic that we don't blame them for stuff that other's do.

Ugh: typical right-wing nasty bigotry at it's finest. I wish these folks would grow up.

So they are discriminating against students made of sheer fabric?

Sorry, couldn't resist. For reals, the problem here is attributing actions to every member of a group. Thus: the Danish cartoons were directly offensive to the students. But the students were not directly responsible for any atrocities committed by Muslims.

But don't shoot back by blaming children for the sins of their fathers (ie, blaming white Americans for killing Native Americans), because that's an even worse use of the same error.
