The Badger Herald: “Several members of the Muslim Student Association were present at the event and could be seen shaking their heads and scoffing throughout Spencer’s lecture. Rashid Dar, MSA public relations chair, was the first to pose a question.
He and several other MSA members ridiculed Spencer for not being informed on the topic and for not being fluent in Arabic.
“It is only you who truly understands how to distort the balance,” Dar said, speaking over commotion in the room and Spencer himself.
Spencer blasted the MSA members for speaking over him and spreading their “propaganda.”
“This lack of courtesy and this kind of arrogance is indicative of an unwillingness to engage in these things honestly,” Spencer said. CR Chair Sara Mikolajczak said she thought the event went well overall but called the outbursts by MSA “absolutely ridiculous.” “It’s one thing to ask a question.
I mean, that’s perfectly legitimate — that’s why we open it up to Q-and-A,” Mikolajczak said. “But it’s a completely different thing to talk over a speaker and not to adhere to the rules.”
That’s why the very bogus spectre of ISLAMOPHOBIA is bantered about by the intolerant followers of Mo. If they get to silence us, then the victory is won. Glad to see that Mr.Spencer isn’t making it easy for them. KGS
