College Republican Student Holding ‘Blue Lives Matter’ Poster — Muslim Students Protesters Didn’t Have any Interest in Opening Up any Dialogue and Shouted Over Every Attempt to Initiate Conversation about their Grievances
(Campus Reform) An event held by a Jewish student group at the Univ of California Irvine (UC Irvine) was disrupted Wednesday by a crowd of Muslim students chanting antisemitic and anti-police slogans.
Ariana Rowlands President of the College Republicans club at UC Irvine told ‘Campus Reform’ that her group had just wrapped up its meeting on Wednesday and were gathered outside the building preparing to hang posters to advertise an upcoming appearance of Milo Yiannopoulos a Breitbart News columnist, when they heard a commotion nearby.
Wandering over to investigate the ‘College Republicans’ member encountered a large group of students holding signs and screaming in unison to protest a movie screening being held by ‘Students Supporting Israel’ – Shawn Steel a Republican Natl Committee member who was on the UC Irvine campus to address the ‘College Republicans’ meeting posted a video on Facebook capturing a portion of the demonstration.
“Intifada, Intifada long live the Intifada,” the protesters shout at the beginning of the video following that up with a call and a response chant of “displacing people since 48 there’s nothing here to celebrate.”
They repeated their venomous chant several times before progressing to a more simple message of: “F–k the Police.”
Kevin Brum, Vice President of ‘Students Supporting Israel’ (SSI) told ‘Campus Reform’ that the demonstrators were members of the ‘Muslim Students Union’ and ‘Students for Justice in Palestine Groups’ who were apparently incensed that two former Israel Defense Forces (IDF) soldiers were planning to meet with attendees of the screening.
According to a post at SSI Facebook page police had to escort the attendees out of their planned event for their own safety when the intolerant Muslim’s violated the SSI students constitutionally protected rights to peacefully assemble, watch a film and hear from former IDF soldiers were disrupted, when the Muslim students became “aggressive, blocking exits and not allowing people to leave (the venue) as well as forcing people to run and hide in rooms, fearing for their lives.”
“They were shouting Intifada, Intifada long live the Intifada – All White people need to die and they chased a female student into another building,” SSI further reported.
In March 2011 Jihad Watch reported that the ‘Muslim Students Union’ at UC Irvine, a ‘Muslim Students Association’ affiliate which the NY Police identified the organization as an ‘incubator’ for Islamic radicalism, had been suspended by the school after members repeatedly heckled Israeli Ambassador to the U.S. Michael Oren during a speech in 2010

“Every great religious revival in America has led to an advance in Civil Rights–from the Declaration of Independence and the Bill of Rights, to the end of slavery and the pursuit of racial equality but all this has been achieved in the face of established power structures strongly and often violently opposed to these rights. So this is a time of choosing…to keep open the doors of religious liberty. If we do so, then we will make possible the next great awakening in America…”

Eleven days after the 9/11 attacks at the World Trade Center, Pentagon and United 93 that crashed in Shanksville, PA the Dept of Homeland Security (DHS) was founded, designated to coordinate and unify 22 separately funded federal departments and agencies with a budget in FY 2002 of $19.5 Billion, during FY 2015 this exploded to $38.2 Billion to Obama’s $41.2 Billion FY 2016 funding request
DHS from their own ‘Organizational Chart’ has too many subdivisions in too many disparate fields to operate effectively as CATO Institute in September, 2011 points out.
Agencies with responsibility for: Counterfeiting Investigations, Border Security, Disaster Preparedness, Federal Law Enforcement Training, Biological Warfare Defense, Health Affairs find themselves under the same Cabinet official.
This arrangement has not enhanced the governments competence or efficiency–Americans are not any safer because the head of DHS is simultaneously responsible for airport security and federal efforts to counter potential flu epidemics.
National defense is a key governmental responsibility but focusing too many resources on trying to defend every potential terrorist target is a recipe for wasteful spending. Our limited resources are better spent on investigating and arresting aspiring terrorists.
DHS responsibilities for aviation security, domestic surveillance and port security, have made it too easy for politicians to disguise pork barrel spending in red, white and blue–Politicians wanting to bring money home to their districts and as a result, DHS appropriations too often differ from what ought to be DHS priorities.
The Dept of Homeland Security should be abolished (or defunded) and its components reorganized into more practical groupings. The agencies tasked with immigration, border security and customs enforcement belong under the same oversight agency. The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) and Federal Air Marshals should be abolished and the federal government should end support for fusion centers–the remaining DHS organizations should return to their former parent agencies.
Terrorism remains a serious problem but policymakers ought to be more candid with the American public. Instead of pandering to fear and overreacting to every potential threat, Washington policymakers should keep the risk of terrorist attacks in perspective and focus public resources on cost-effective measures.
On the 16 November, 2010 I wrote here did you know, that the nations airports are not required to have TSA Screeners? The 2001 law creating the ‘Transportation Security Administration’ (TSA) gave airports the right to opt out of the TSA program in favor of ‘Private Screeners’ subsequent to a 2 yr period.
Now with DHS funding on-hold and with a TSA (that everyone loves to hate) having humiliated travelers ever since they’ve been in existence, made children cry, trampled on the 4th Amendment–never forgetting the $30 Million of taxpayers dollars it wasted on ‘Puffers’ that didn’t work together with the roaming HCV Mobile Full Body XXX Scanners that government bureaucrats spent money on, that may without a warrant look into your home, other structures and underneath your clothing.
So what if the DHS runs out of funds (which would effectively defund the TSA) would this be such a bad thing or instead be an unanticipated victory for the Constitution?
