Fake Anti-Muslim Posters Planted At GWU

Speaking of faked “hate crimes, we have this from Cybercast News Service:

Anti-Muslim Posters Planted on Campus Stir Uproar

GW FlierBy Randy Hall

(CNSNews.com) – Fliers posted across George Washington University in Washington, D.C., on Monday with a message of hatred toward Muslims was “a classic left-wing tactic” to malign the conservatives sponsoring “Islamo-Fascism Awareness Week” on the campus later this month, a national organizer of the event said Tuesday.

Printed across the top of each poster were the words “HATE MUSLIMS? SO DO WE!!!” The flier also had a picture of an Arab with such “typical Muslim” features as “lasers from eyes,” “venom from mouth,” a “suicide vest,” a “hidden AK-47” and a “peg-leg for smuggling children and heroin.”

“To find out more, come to ISLAMO-FASCIST AWARENESS WEEK,” the poster stated before listing incorrect dates for the event.

The bottom of the flier indicated that it was “brought to you by Students for Conservativo-Fascism Awareness” and recommended students view “The Power of Nightmares,” a BBC documentary that claims the threat of radical Islam is not as serious as neoconservatives say.

George Washington University (GWU) police officers quickly took down the posters, and university administrators began investigating who put them up earlier in the day…

Sergio Gor, a senior from Los Angeles and the president of GWU’s chapter of the conservative Young America’s Foundation, told the GW Hatchet — the student newspaper on campus — that his group was not responsible for the posters.

“Someone took our name and used it,” he said. “It was hateful.”

Gor also stressed that the incident will not prevent his group from hosting Islamo-Fascism Awareness Week on campus the week of Oct. 22-26, when author David Horowitz will speak, the TV mini-series “The Path to 9/11” will be shown, and a panel of people who have fled Iran will discuss their escape from the brutal regime there.

More than 140 other college campuses will host the week-long event, which was conceived by the Terrorism Awareness Project of the David Horowitz Freedom Center in Los Angeles to “confront the two ‘Big Lies’ of the political left: that George Bush created the war on terror and that global warming is a greater danger to Americans than the terrorist threat.”

“Nothing could be more politically incorrect than to point this out,” the Project’s Web site states. “But nothing could be more important for American students to hear.” …

While the university’s investigation is still underway, Student Association Executive Vice President Brand Kroeger told the GW Hatchet that administrators should take serious action against any students involved with creating or hanging the posters.

“I would support expulsion,” Kroeger said. “These acts are completely heinous.”

Of course nothing will come of this.

But watch the outrage build at Columbia University.
