Free speech, Muslim student version

September 23, 2011 | By | Reply More

Last year, eleven Muslim students at U.C.-Irvine protested the speech by the Israeli Ambassador to the United States by shouting, “It’s a shame this university has sponsored a mass murderer like yourself.” They weren’t asked to leave like most everyone else who disrupts a speech. No, they were criminally prosecuted of “conspiracy” and “disturbing an assembly” and today they were convicted. They are each facing a sentence of up to one year in prison.
