Universities Teach Students That 9/11 Terrorists Were the Good Guys
For a brief period we were ostensibly united by the Muslim atrocities of 9/11. Liberals groused about having to look at all those flags, but most refrained from openly siding with the terrorists. That was then, this is now:
Not all of us will be mourning 9/11 victims and their families this Friday on the 14th anniversary of the attacks. Hundreds of college kids across the country will instead be taught to sympathize with the terrorists.
That’s because their America-hating leftist professors are systematically indoctrinating them into believing it’s all our fault, that the US deserved punishment for “imperialism” — and the kids are too young to remember or understand what really happened that horrific day.
Case in point is a freshman-level English class taught at several major universities across the country called “The Literature of 9/11” — which focuses almost entirely on writings from the perspective of the Islamic terrorists, rather than the nearly 3,000 Americans who were slaughtered by them.
The syllabus, which includes books like “The Reluctant Fundamentalist” and “Poems from Guantanamo: Detainees Speak,” portray terrorists as “freedom fighters” driven by oppressive US foreign policies.
Even highly ranked University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill has adopted the curriculum. The 9/11 seminar is taught by UNC associate English professor Neel Ahuja, who specializes in “post-colonial studies.”
No doubt Obama, with his anti-neocolonialist ideology, would heartily approve.
In Ahuja’s twisted worldview, al Qaeda terrorists are the real victims. “Abu Zubaydah’s torture may be interpreted as simply one more example of the necropower of US imperialism, the power to coerce and kill targeted populations,” Ahuja recently wrote in an academic paper criticizing the war on terror.
That’s what kids learn in English class instead of Shakespeare these days — all about “the necropower of US imperialism.”
When the UNC College Republicans complained to Chancellor Carol Folt about having their noses rubbed in vile and treasonous propaganda that insults their country and desecrates the dead of 9/11, they received a typical educratic response:
“Part of the college experience is the opportunity to learn from those who have differing points of view. Carolina’s first-year seminar program is part of that growth,” the administration said in a press statement, while insisting “the university isn’t forcing a set of beliefs on students.”
“Differing points of view” obviously do not include views that are favorable toward America or critical of its enemies. At this point claiming that universities do not systematically force a set of beliefs on students is a lie told out of sheer arrogance, with the mutual understanding that only a cretin would believe it.
[S]everal students who have taken the course warned in a professor review blog that Ahuja, who earns $72,100 a year spewing his unAmerican propaganda, does not tolerate dissent.
“He favors kids who share his views, so learn to do that,” said one reviewer.
Better still, learn to prepare yourself for a career without sinking yourself tens of $thousands into debt paying to be told malevolent lies.
