33 A Lecturer Showed a Painting of the Prophet Muhammad. She Lost Her Job. (archive.ph) posted 139 days ago by Mpetey123 139 days ago by Mpetey123 +33 / -0 17 comments share 17 comments share save hide report block hide replies
The really funny thing about this is that the teacher spent several minutes introducing the CONTEXT of the art. She explained that not all Muslims agree that it's forbidden to show images of Muhammad, she explained the historical artwork she was about to show (and that was drawn by Muslims), and then she showed it.
The head of the Muslim Student society is the complainer.
The school's administration is, inexplicably, backing him.
This is not only the administration acting against free speech, this is the school administration acting as the ENFORCER of conservative Orthodox Muslim belief. It's fucking crazy.
More proof terrorism works.
I dont think so. Its the state using muslims as enforcers. As soon as they stop being useful, they'll stop caring
Did everyone forget that context exists? Youtubers won't say certain words regardless of context due to fear of the algorithm. Discussions about literature are blunted in schools because of outdated values might offend. Did everyone on the planet forget that context matters?
"Context matters" is leftist bullshit. It's just reserving the right to censor differently.
Context is irrelevant, the only thing that matters is the principle, which here is that anyone should be allowed to say anything at all times, unless the words are posing a direct and intended threat, or causing direct and intended physical harm.
The leftist will say that the reaction is also free speech, but that's absolute nonsense and assumes that there are no workers protections. If you do something that is not illegal, like idk petting a kitten, then your job should absolutely not be allowed to fire you for it.
They can still fire you and claim it's downsizing or whatever, and that's fine, but being allowed to use the opportunity to propagandize, fearmonger, and virtue signal is absolute clownery.
Context isn't leftist bullshit it's common fucking sense. Geez dude touch grass
Context is a nothing word.
Everything and every idea has infinite context.
When you're using nothing words to make moral arguments, what you're actually doing is propagandizing your particular point of view.
Have the strength to speak your convictions instead of hiding behind nothing words.
What you want to say is: "I agree that it's totally not permissible to say nigger, and I completely agree with the concept of hate speech, and totally saying nigger is hate speech, and hate speech is heresy, and people who engage in hate speech should be drawn and quartered and exiled, BUT you see in this particular instance he said nigger because he was using it as an example of a hate speech word to make the point that it's dangerous to our democracy, and so in this particular instance what he did was justifiable."
And I'm telling you that this is bullshit.
"Context" is irrelevant. We are where we are, in part because no one has the courage to say "fuck your context, she should be free to show her class as many prophet pictures as she damn well pleases, because protecting the feelings of muslims or the easily offended is not a moral principle, not is it a cultural priority".
And THAT'S the principle that needs defending, that people should be free to speak their mind and not risk excommunication because they insulted some liberal sensibilities.
Sure dude keep fighting your weird little strawman weirdo.
If low-IQ redditor replies is all you've got, then we're done here.
Okay thanks for the announcement saved me for waiting for your opinion I didn't ask for
Great point. This is like people freaking out when someone says the n word in the context of talking about it or quoting. But this is ridiculous. I hope they get hired by a better school
That's the thing. She'll never belong because of her own putrid personality. People like that should have been stopped at the borders.
The terrorist sympathizers CAIR again proving once more they're a seditious foreign organization promoting Islamic supremacy.
You reap what you sow, libs.
Minnesota is overtaking Europe as the Sharia capital thanks to Obama + Democrat plans
Well, yes. I would presume dying would cause someone to lose their job--
Oh, she's not dead yet! Ah!
That's pretty surprising that some academics still get caught not understanding the taboos of the current culture. It has seemingly been established by now that Mo photos are a no-go.
At least some Muslims believe you can't paint any living things. Should the teacher be prevented from showing any painting that violates that rule as well?
