A conservative student group at a Wisconsin-based college claims they were told their 9/11 “Never Forget” poster violates the school’s bias policy because it exclusively targets Islamic terrorism, but the college says that’s simply not true.
By focusing “relentlessly on one religious organization, one religious group, one religious identity,” Ripon College’s bias incident team allegedly told the Young America’s Foundation that their posters remembering September 11th create an environment where “students from a Muslim background would feel singled out and/or harassed.”
“The school’s claim that the posters may make Muslim students feel ‘harassed’ is absurd,” YAF spokesman Spencer Brown told Fox News. “[It] ignores the fact that innocent Muslims also died at the hands of radical Islamists on 9/11, and continue to suffer under the same evil ideology around the world.”
Ripon College spokewoman, Melissa Anderson, told Fox News the posters were never ruled against or told they violated any bias policy, which doesn’t exist. She added posters don’t even need to be pre-approved on campus.
