Those dastardly conservatives...oughta be expelled...

Jay Tea reports on an amusing contretemps...

There's a fun little scuffle going on at George Washington University. Conservatives on campus are planning an "Islamo-Fascism Awareness Week" soon, and -- naturally -- this has a lot of people in a tizzy. (It's the equivalent of heresy to comment on the remarkable correlation between terrorists, dictatorships, and Islam. The race might not always go to the swift, the battle to the strong, and not all terrorists are Muslims, but that's the way to bet.)

First up, the regular suspects all denounced the event. Then, a bunch of posters showed up around campus. They announced the event, proclaiming "HATE MUSLIMS? SO DO WE!" and featured a bunch of anti-Muslim sentiments.

This drove the regular suspects into absolute hysteria. Howls of outrage shook the campus, and several college officials talked openly of expelling the students responsible for it. The Young America's Foundation -- the sponsors of the Week -- found themselves under heavy attack.

Then a rather inconvenient truth emerged: the posters were not the work of the YAF, or any of their supporters, but a "satire" cooked up by seven students who are staunch opponents of the YAF and their event....

Ooops. How embarrassing. Of course they will probably punish the perps in some way similar to how SF State punished (when forced into it by bad publicity) some Palestinian students who were caught in the perfectly harmless and Progressive activity of beating up Jews. The University,
uncompromising in its defense of morality and the rule of law, decreed the establishment of an "Islamic studies department."
