Robbie Travers is a law student at Edinburgh University and made a Facebook post that has the liberal school up in arms.
Travers made a post mocking the group that has killed many innocent lives for no reason, but the school is investigating him for a ‘hate crime’.
“Afraid I’ve been a little more quiet as I have been accused of Islamophobia because I mocked ISIS, and I’m being investigated on such a ground by my University. Mocking ISIS allegedly made Islamic and minority students feel “threatened” and “unsafe,” so goes the complainant’s ramblings. Have engaged legal advice to dismiss this nonsense. Wish me luck.”
His comments are being seen as Islamophobic and “put minority students at risk and in a state of panic”.
What a bunch of whiny liberals. This intelligent young man is actually standing up for what is right and yet he is the one in trouble. Why does calling ISIS ‘barbarians’ offend fellow student Esme Allman? It should not because the hypocritical black student herself once called black men ‘trash’. This investigation is in retaliation to Travers calling Allman out on her hypocrisy.
The university has filed misconduct charges against Travers and opened up an investigation. Investigation into what? speaking the truth?
Travers is not afraid to ruffle the feathers of college progressives. Back in February, he spoke the utmost truth about college and ‘safe spaces’.
“[I]s it not also dangerous to shield students from the harsh realities of life beyond the university barricades?” he wrote. “A university community devoid of controversy and debate is not only foolish. It is also one totally unprepared for the real world.”
Shame on this college for investigating and condemning a harmless opinion piece. There actually needs to be more writers like Travers who stand up against ISIS.
