Two weeks after a naturalized US citizen launched a Jihadist attack on the Ohio State University campus, students and faculty have begun emerging from their safe spaces and speaking out. The day of the attack, ESPN assured the Prozac Nation that no OSU football players were among the 11 people wounded, so rest of the country breathed an early sigh of relief.
The story hasn't gone away in Ohio, however. On November 30th, Stephanie Clemons-Thompson, an administrator in the OSU bureaucracy wrote on Facebook: "Abdul Razac Ali Artan was a 'Buckeye' a member of our family. If you think it is OK to celebrate his death and/or show a photo of his dead body and I see it on my timeline, I will unfriend you. I pray you find compassion for his life, troubled as it clearly was. Think of the pain that he must have been in to feel like his actions were the only solution. We must come together in this time of tragedy."
Thompson concludes with a Black Lives Matter hashtag. OSU English professor Pranav Jani, agreed: "Even compassion has been politicized, as we saw with the Diversity Officer who's being attacked for saying that we should show compassion for a fellow Buckeye who made tragic, tragic mistakes."
As a professor of English, Jani has published articles in publications such as Historical Materialism, The International Socialist Review, SALAAM Newsletter, The Marxist, and The Socialist Worker. With a resume like that, we can certainly conclude that none of Jani's course material is 'politicized', can't we?
Like Thompson, Jani is a huge supporter of BLM and spoke at a campus protest against minorities allegedly shot 'wrongfully' by police. Artan, the OSU attacker who made a 'tragic mistake' was included on the list of 'wrongful deaths'. Maryam Abidi, one of the protest leaders and Gender-Studies major at OSU explained: "The protest against police brutality extends to the guilty and innocent alike, because we know that no matter what the crime, justice and due process don't come from a cop's bullet."
Professor William Clark, who was actually injured in the attack, bitterly told CNN that he was refusing President Trump's offer to visit the victims. This, of course, didn't stop Clark from spouting off to the Corporate Media about what he would say.
"I've been a professor for 35 years," Clark pontificated, "And I know these issues, when students do these things, they are often for complex reasons. I'd like Trump to embrace a message that a vital component to our universities is their multidisciplinary, multinational, multi-everything character."
Clark was rammed by Artan's car while waiting outside a building that had been evacuated after the heating system broke down. Taxpayers cough up a whopping $6.2 billion annually to subject young minds to this kind of perverted thinking.
Which brings up an interesting issue. There is no indication that Artan was radicalized in his native Somalia, and actually did become a legal resident of the US. Where would we suppose he got his radical ideas? We do note that there's a fair number of radicalized faculty, staff, and student leadership at Ohio State, though.
Maybe our Government should take a little closer look at who's teaching our young people than who's immigrating into the country. It may be a fair question as to whether our colleges and high schools are costing our country---both economically and culturally---far more than immigration, legal or otherwise.
