Meet Laila Alawa, the 25-Year old Syrian Immigrant on DHS Advisory Council Who Wants to Curb Your Speech Rights
The freedom of speech includes the right to offend others, or else speech would be contingent upon the views of those in power and with the most influence (*does not mean it’s virtuous to say anything one wants). Unfortunately, there are people who want to outlaw certain speech. Typically, these are individuals on the political left, especially when it comes to saying anything they deem as ‘Islamophobic.’ Laila Alawa is one such individual.
9/11 changed the world for good, and there’s no other way to say it. I just hope we keep having open conversations about our differences.
#afterseptember11 Being Americanmeant you were white. And my immigrant self suddenly started fighting for the right to be just as American.
I can’t deal with people saying America is the best nation in the world. Be critical. Be conscious. Don’t be idiots.
THE US HAS NEVER BEEN A UTOPIA UNLESS YOU WERE A STRAIGHT WHITE MALE THAT OWNED LAND. straight up period go home shut up
Also I can’t wait until @TheBachelor has a man or woman be the star of the show that isn’t pure white. Or “prettily mixed.”
Because, Ya know, @TheBachelor, white people in America? They’re not gonna be dominant majority for much longer.
Worse yet, this active social media personality is also influencing U.S. national security. In 2015, Alawa received her American citizenship and also became one of fifteen individuals serving on the Homeland Security Advisory Council, Countering Violent Extremism Subcommittee. So, we have an individual who wants to undermine our country and the freedoms it protects, giving advice to our Department of Homeland Security.
