Death By Political Correctness: Student Charged With Islamaphobic "Hate Crime" After Mocking ISIS On Facebook

Robbie Travers, a 21-year-old law student, is being investigated by the University of Edinburgh for claims he committed a “hate crime”.

Sharing a comment on his Facebook page – in response to the U.S. Air Force dropping a massive ordinance air blast (or MOAB, “Mother Of All Bombs) on a network of ISIS tunnels in Afghanistan in April – Travers said:

“Excellent news that the US administration and Trump ordered an accurate strike on an ISIS network of tunnels in Afghanistan. I’m glad we could bring these barbarians a step closer to collecting their 72 virgins.”

A complaint with the University was filed by a second-year history student that alleged Travers’ comment “put minority students at risk and in a state of panic” while also breaching the student code of conduct – with Edinburgh Uni even going so far as to open a probe over Traver’s plainly horrific comment obviously directed toward terrorists! Plainly, Travers should have known better than to dare to criticize any aspect of Islam – seeing as how, in June, a man was jailed for anti-Islam posts on Facebook and 36 people accused of hateful social media posts had their homes raided! 

Sadly, Robbie Travers is another notch in the rope of political correctness gone wrong across the pond…

Undeniably, a precedent has already been set. After scores of young girls were slaughtered at an Ariana Grande concert, the only outrage to be found was directed toward “racist” tweets. Female genital mutilation – an abhorrent practice under Islam – skated under the radar in Michigan for some odd years.  Muslim groups in Malaysia and Indonesia even boycotted Starbucks for their support of the LGBTQ movement!

Seemingly, the face of hardline Islam has fully revealed itself… but instead of seeing it for the true enemy of the West that it is; liberals, SJWs, and the mainstream media only see that true, radicalized face as “victimized” and “oppressed”. 

Even as far back as 2015, Muslims butted heads with the Jersey City school board over a proposal to close schools on a Muslim holiday, even though Muslims formed less than 4% of the city’s population at that time. Impassioned debate broke out over the proposal at a school board meeting, with a local Muslim mother espousing:

“We’re no longer the minority, that’s clear from tonight. We’re going to be the majority soon.”

Inciting words like that don’t help your cause or the fight against Islamophobia… An opined statement such as that implicitly broadcasts two things to anyone listening…

  • We are not assimilating, nor do we have any interest in doing so…
  •  When we are the majority, we’ll get our way – Sharia and all.

Sadly, Robbie Travers is not protected under freedom of speech in the U.K., nor is anyone else over there that’s brave enough to criticize Islam. As an American, it’s unbelievable to see the transgressions carried out over someone’s words and thoughts. Truly, the precedent has been set in England, the U.K., the EU… It will not get better, only worse. Citizens already do not have any protections regarding their speech or expression so technically, the injustice against Travers (and all the other mentioned cases in this article) aren’t even illegal!

It’s shocking that Travers – after mocking ISIS, a group we should all agree is OK to piss on and belittle – was chastised. Seemingly, when you side against the one insulting a radicalized group of terrorists attempting to destroy the West, you’re siding with the terrorists. Therefore, the stance the University of Edinburgh is taking – whilst accommodating to people offended by Travers’ comment – spits on the face of any real freedom of thought or expression.

More and more, it seems that America is becoming the last bastion of freedom – the only place on Earth where your right to speech and expression is still protected and lauded. Elsewhere, you’ll do time for sharing your opinions if they go against the mold. The U.S. constitution grants us our natural rights and because our forefathers had the wits to write them down, they can never be taken away or stomped on; lest our Constitution be degraded, which must never be allowed to happen.

The U.S. Constitution acts the bedrock for our freedoms and democracy, any subversion or change to it could lead to disasterous consequence. We have a foundation and guide to follow in regards to any enemies, domestic or foreign, facing us – and we’d be good to rely on it. Death by political correctness is 100% avoidable. However, the path the U.K. and EU are seemingly headed down has only one outcome: slaughter.

It's the UK.

They lost free speech a long time ago.

And these are probably the same idiots that want to carry out a "revolution." If they find words shocking, I can imagine what they'd think of full throated violence.  Nothing, because it is unfathomable to them.

Notice the "tranny" look?

This is all theatre folks.

But there are consequences.

Just don't say anything hateful while commiting a different crime then you'll see where your 1st Amendment Rights have gone.

Into the toilet.


Unless of course, you're a member of the oppressed minority.

I think the University of Edinburgh should bring in 

Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei 

as their new Chancellor

he can get their curriculum all straightened out, too

Click bait title, it's well known that Western universities are cesspits.

Also the hate speech laws have been used against everyone including muslims/anti-whites.

I'm making over $7k a month working part time. I kept hearing other people tell me how much money they can make online so I decided to look into it. Well, it was all true and has totally changed my life. This is what I do...

Wow, being prosecuted for expressing support for the official position of the UK government ... that's some harsh Reign of Terror 2.0 shit going on there. Does it mean we can finally put Tony Blair on trial for his crimes against the Islamic people?

They also disarmed and neutered the native population, all in preparation for the ever increasing invasion of the third world!

So this confirms that ISIS  does in fact represent all of Islam, correct?

Haven't a clue what you are saying or asking. At any rate, here are some recent archaeological findings and data sets applied to the last 1400 years of Islamic conquest, including the so called "Golden Age of Islam".

1988... About 8 years in advance. Yup.

FWIW, one can manufacture what amounts to a shotgun from hardware store parts in maybe a day. Eliminating anything which isn't completely off the shelf normal, the parts are:

  • steel water pipe of 2 sizes; long'n thin & short'n fat.
  • bushings to connect them
  • end caps
  • spark plug & HT leads.
  • piezo igniter
  • gas valve.

What you're making is an HHO gun.

The pipes make up the barrel and combustion chamber, the spark plug is screwed into the back of the chamber (end cap) obviously & attached to the piezo. The ammo is steel ballbearings and the propellant is actually steam, made from the explosive mix of H2 and O2 which you electrolyse from water with some bicarbonate of soda, at about 1.8 volts. There's a little drilling and you can solder the HT leads on, but everything else just screws together. Going from a muzzle loader to pump action should be pretty easy.

All of it is completely off the shelf. It's not I think in commercial shotgun range in terms of energy but I think it's up there with pistols and that's more than enough.

I've no idea whether the story is true or not and I've no idea whether Buzzfeed is any more accurate or not, but two minutes' of investigation puts another light on whether Travers is being hounded for a single statement.

Second-year history student filed complaint... similiar to the "informant" in the Soviet Union where one in three informed on the other two.... You never got to say what you believed, ever... is this the precurser .... welcome to your new world order...sucker.

They'd applaud if the victim was a white male (rednecks, fascists, Nazis, haters, racists, bigots, oh fuck me, etc.)

Already happened in the US. Apparently they were added to the SPLC list as Islamophobic racists. You can't make this shit up.

Given that it is an offense to openly support terrorism (ISIS) we are now in a situation where you can't do the right thing no matter WHAT your position is on the subject.

The estabishment have now succeeded in making a criminal out of anyone regardless of their stance - unless we STFU and say nothing about anything of course - precisely what they want.


CNONC's picture

The"right" thing, in the view of our new masters, is to have no position whatsoever.  Ignore the wide world around you and let your betters run it.  Shut up and cheer when told, and hate who your told, but have or express no opinions of your own.

The guy should convert to Islam immediately and recieve a get out of jail card.
