(They should really ban Gypsies and studies of Gypsies too. I mean, you know, to be fair to Nazis. And get rid of handicap access as well for the same reason. They already have the Jews covered by being fair to muslims so thats OK. The most important thing is that truth cannot get in the way of advancing the Cultural Marxist narrative)
Universities will ban feminists, Right-wing politicians and other controversial speakers to appear fair on Muslims, Vince Cable has warned.
The ex-business secretary said the Prevent strategy would make institutions feel compelled to censor all ‘extreme’ views to prove that they are not ‘anti-Islamic’.
Under the Government’s counter-terror drive, universities have a duty to monitor students for signs of ‘non-violent extremism’ and block hate preachers.
But yesterday Sir Vince said institutions would feel obliged to ‘demonstrate impartiality’ and ban ‘non-Muslim speakers whose reputation is also controversial for different reasons’.
He said some speakers were already being given hostile receptions on campuses, including Ukip leader Nigel Farage who cancelled an appearance at Cambridge after protests.
A petition was also set up to stop feminist Germaine Greer speaking at Cardiff because her views could allegedly offend ‘trans’ people.
Sir Vince said: ‘Once we get into the way of thinking that the best way to deal with extreme views is to suppress them, we get into very dangerous territory indeed.

An imam who was found in the back of a lorry in Dover has been jailed after police discovered an invoice for £18million worth of ammunition on his mobile phone.
Abdurraouf Eshati, 29, was sentenced to six years in prison today after he pleaded guilty to terrorism and immigration offences.
Eshati, who lived in a mosque in Wrexham where he sometimes led prayers, was one of 20 people discovered in a lorry heading for France on November 30 last year.
On his mobile phone, police found a $28.5million (£18.6million) invoice from an arms supplier for the sale and delivery of 1,100 tonnes of ammunition to Libya.
His phone also held a document about chartering a cargo jet for $250,000 (£163,000) for use in the North African country.
OCTOBER 28–A woman flying from Dubai to New York City was molested by a male passenger who rubbed lotion on her body as she slept, according to federal investigators who say the suspect told flight attendants that the victim “enjoyed it because she did not resist.”
The assault occurred Monday on a 13-hour Emirates flight, according to a criminal complaint filed in U.S. District Court in Brooklyn.
As detailed by a detective assigned to an NYPD-FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force, the victim said that she fell asleep about an hour into the flight with the aid of anti-anxiety medication. The woman was seated in row 45 next to Nadeem Mehmood Quraishi, a 42-year-old Staten Island resident. […]
The woman said that when walking to the bathroom “her vaginal area was sore.” She subsequently “saw that her underwear had been shifted and that lotion was in her vaginal area and on her underwear.”
Upon returning to her seat, the woman asked Quraishi where her hand lotion was. After he passed the lotion to her, she contacted crew members.
(And what woman doesn’t enjoy having a strange man slather a strange substance on her when she is unconscious from anti-anxiety drugs on a flight seated next to a muslim)
Hundreds of British academics have sparked outrage by declaring they will boycott all Israeli universities to show their solidarity with Palestinians.
The lecturers said the move was a protest at the universities’ ‘deep complicity’ in Israel’s ‘violations of international law’ during the ongoing conflict in the region.
The 343 university professors include some from 72 institutions including Oxford, Cambridge and the London School of Economics.

Istanbul (AFP) – Turkish prosecutors have charged two schoolboys aged 12 and 13 with insulting President Recep Tayyip Erdogan after they tore down a poster of him, local media reports said Wednesday.
It is the latest case in which youngsters have been hauled before the courts in Turkey on similar charges, fuelling concerns about freedom of speech under Erdogan.
The prosecutor in the main Kurdish city of Diyarbakir is seeking jail terms of between 14 months and four years and eight months for the pair, according to the Hurriyet newspaper.
It said the two were caught in May ripping down the Erdogan poster on a Diyarbakir street but defended themselves saying they just wanted to sell the paper.
“We did not pay attention to who was in the picture, we do not know who it was,” the younger defendant, identified only by the initials K.Y., told a magistrate.

Taking a moment to look on pop culture, here is a good expose of film maker Quentin Tarantino who is so high up Maslow’s hierarchy of needs he has a nose bleed.

“Q: Why did the Canadian cross the road? A: To get to the middle”
I like this because I hear Canadians of all stripes often say that the truth lies somewhere in the middle. I generally answer with the following.
“No, the truth lies where the truth is, It may be in the middle, it may be close to, at, or even past one of the extremes or it may not even be on the scale at all if the poles of the debate are absurd and bereft of any reality.”
Seeking the truth is what is important not agreement. And that is the Canadian disease, seeking agreement above the truth.
