Brooklyn College gives Muslim students a free pass to mock invited speaker Pamela Geller

Hitler showed us how quickly a civilized nation could fall to fascism, when universities and colleges — self-professed towers of autonomy — were the first to crumble under the Nazis.

American learning institutions are buckling under a similar deviance in similarly alarming times, as Islamo-tyrants crush free speech on campuses across the nation with impunity, including here in Brooklyn.

Brooklyn College claims to offer an education that “broadens our students’ understanding of the world around them,” but it gave a twisted pass to the Muslim students who plunged guest speaker Pamela Geller’s talk about the growth of radical Islam into the type of bedlam found in hell-hole Muslim nations — complete with chants of “Alhamdulil­lah” (“Thanks be to Allah”), screams of “Don’t come back!” and the index-finger jihadist salute.

The mostly Muslim audience, which later congratulated itself on Twitter, was a relentless bigot, claims an attendee.

“When she said something they didn’t like they would start laughing, snickering, commenting, and then cheering and clapping, and walking in and out just to disrupt her,” says business administration senior Gabriella Goldberg. “They didn’t really let her speak and that was their strategy.”

The yobs also mocked Geller’s supporters.

“One middle-aged Azerbaijani woman told the crowd that she escaped genocide by extreme Muslims who killed 8,000 people from her community, but they started jeering her and belittling her struggle,” says Goldberg. “I was in disbelief that this could actually happen in an event hosted by a college.”

Security officers acted like potted plants, refusing to boot the boors. Yet they had no problem ousting Goldberg’s sister, Melanie, and three other Jewish students for allegedly disrupting an anti-Israel rally two years ago, when they tried to ask a question of a pro-Palestinian guest speaker. An independent investigation tossed out the bogus charges against them, and concluded that controversial events at the college should be “better handled in the future.” Evidently to deaf ears.

The Geller incident reeks of a double standard, claims Melanie Goldberg, now studying law at another college.

“The Muslim students are allowed to harass speakers, but pro-Israel students are expelled for no reason whatsoever,” she says.

Brooklyn College refused to comment or take action, in a slap to its own academic values, earning a failing grade for not bouncing the Islamo-riffraff, and for not protecting the free speech that separates civilized societies from barbaric ones.

Bob Smith from Chicago says:
Muslims who quit Islam have to worry about being killed by some other devout Muslim. That makes Islam a cult.

Muslims do not like the hear the truth about the cult.

MS Geller tells the truth, and Muslims prove Islam is a cult.

Good people of all races and religions need to stand up! Pamela Geller is being disrespectful and abusing the American liberties. Just because you can slap someone in the face does not mean you should. Have more class than the people you are talking about. Just common sense. I am an African American Christian who got upset with the magazine cover with Mrs. Obama holding a machine gun wearing an afro. Nothing wrong with an afro, it's beautiful to me but I was angry but would not want to kill someone for it. We are civilized, right?

As a former graduate of Brooklyn College and also as a Muslim, I feel that you are defending a hateful person like Pamela Geller because you are also of the same mindset. Islam is not a hateful religion, it has unfortunately been portrayed that way by the media based on the actions of radicals that do not represent the Islamic religions or Muslims as a whole. All this columnist does every week is write negative and hateful rants. Is she any different from a terrorist who also hates?

I cannot believe how brainwashed and infiltrated with lies this college is a joke. Why would anyome support Hamas do they know theu would be killed there. What happened to critical thinking These students are a disgrace to society. I hope theu know by defending this ideology and not standinh aagainst lies and hate it is only foing ro fuel good people to rise up and say enough is enough. Theu have.made laws.in.I believe 12 statea to outlaw sharia law. They use differwnt language to say that no other laws will be allowed. Americans will see whats going on and we.will.vote for.canidates who see Islam.fir.what it is a ideologu not a.religion. Please gi on you tube to see a real moderate Muslim Tariq Fatah takes in Canadian senate. This is pure brainwashing

after hearing the speech. it looks like you are the one who disrespect Islam and talking non sense. Jihad never meant a war the word jihad means (jihad ourselves from smoking,drinking.. all what is haram) jihad means(stop yourself from doing those things I mentioned above). As a Muslim women i am expected to meet racists people like you everyday and i do not mind. As long as they are more positive and smart people in this beautiful country, i do not care about the rest :)
