Muslim Student at University of Michigan Attacked-For Being Conservative

Hat tip The College Fix

Omar Mahmood
He made someone feel "uncomfortable" with his satire on left-handedness

Omar Mahmood is a Muslim student at the University of Michigan who also happens to be a conservative. When he wrote a satirical piece for the Michigan Review that mocked liberals' sense of victimhood, some students decided to rebut him in the only way they knew how-to write vicious notes and leave them on his dorm room door along with a few eggs, weenies, and other left-wing tools of expression. The College Fix has the report along with video of the four female perps taken from security cameras.

A student complained about being made to feel “uncomfortable” due to Mahmood’s recent satirical piece for the Review, “Do the Left Thing.” It discusses the micro-aggressions that the small left-handed student minority faces at the University of Michigan.

Do you see the hypocrisy here? Can you imagine the outcry had Mahmood been liberal? The campus would be in turmoil. CAIR in Michigan under the ever-vigilant Dawud Walid would be all over the case. A file would have been set up at the Islamophobia Research and Documentation Center at UC Berkeley. There would be candlelight vigils and hijab and hoodie marches all over the country.

Er, strike that.
