This event is scheduled in response to Shoebat’s talk, which will be Tuesday, December 4th, 7:30 PM in the UWM Union Wisconsin Room. The address is: 2200 E. Kenwood Blvd., Milwaukee, WI 53211. Shoebat’s talk is also free and open to the public.
Hopefully, this will be a learning experience for the UWM Muslim Student Association, which first tried to get Shoebat banned. Trying to shut up speakers is terrible public relations.
Now they are trying to counter speech they dislike with more speech. That’s in the best tradition of free societies.
And if Shoebat’s talk is likely to provide a window on the ugly side of Islamic radicalism, the pro-Islam position of the Muslim Student Association is also something that a lot of Americans would benefit from hearing.
