UCI’s MSU Will Stop At Nothing to Advance “Free Speech”

Gabriella Hoffman is a sophomore at UC-San Diego who also balances life as a conservative activist. She’s majoring in Political Science and minoring in History. Unlike many out there today, Gabriella attributes her parents- Lithuanian immigrants- to her conservative upbringing. Her parents have a remarkable insight into conservatism because they fled the evil empire as political refugees in 1985 and entered the U.S. legally in 1986. Since age 9, she has watched Fox News and has been exposed to liberal injustices from early on. As a result, she is quite the firecracker in defending her conservative beliefs, and doesn’t hesitate to impart the corresponding message to friends and foes alike. Hoffman brought David Horowitz to campus May 2010, where he successfully highlighted the dangers involved in radical Islam with efforts like “Apartheid Week” and comments made by those proponents like Jumanah Albarhi. The event made national headlines, with mentions on Glenn Beck and Sean Hannity. She is one of the foremost conservative activists at UC-San Diego, having interned with Young America's Foundation at the Reagan Ranch Center. Hoffman also blogs for San Diego Rostra, blogs for David Horowitz’s NewsReal Blog, is Advertising Manager for UCSD's conservative paper-The California Review, and maintains her own blog: gabriellahoffman.wordpress.com.

Following the suspension of the University of California—Irvine’s Muslim Student Union this past June, members of the MSU are bitter about the university’s decision. I reported on NewsReal Blog back in June  about the suspension as it was a milestone in suppressing their antics. Obviously, their reaction to the decision has only prompted their hate and schemes more. Do not buy into their lie of wanting free speech, as they wish to deny it to their opponents.

A writer for New University—UC-Irvine’s paper—lamented how sad it was that the Muslim Student Union’s presence was sorely missed during Welcome Week festivities. This girl—including other fanatics—failed to register in their brains that the Muslim Student Union breached university rules when interrupting Michael Oren’s speech in February. UC-Irvine’s administration stressed civility and respect at the event—standard protocol expected when speakers come to campus to engage in dialogue. Let this be known: the Muslim Student Union’s cries of having their free speech “deprived of them” is hypocritical, as they heckled Oren by showing their continual efforts to suppress the speech of pro-Israel views.

The suspension of the MSU for the duration of the school year, including a two-year period of probation, is obviously “unjust” for this group according to Madiha Shahabuddin. She points out:

Or is it that this apparent trend of the university shutting down student voices and actions is somehow here to stay?

Since when are other Muslim Student groups on universities being shut down on a routine basis? The UC-Irvine MSU’s suspension is the only action of its kind in existence! The only groups that could justify their voices being shut down are conservative and Republican organizations.

An event or protest in which a few individuals take part is not reason enough to suspend an entire group on which so many Muslims on campus rely for their social, spiritual and humanitarian needs.

When a group fails to respect the wishes laid out by administrative officials—regardless of the number of people involved— association will be noted and collective punishment will result. Universities ruthlessly punish right-leaning groups in high frequency compared to any radical Muslim group. You can thank the leftist agenda at universities for this endless persecution of conservatives on campus.

The MSU is not an honest group, as it disguises its anti-American efforts as free speech and derides those “impairing” them.
