Rutgers apologizes for canceling alum speech after she was branded ‘Islamophobe,’ ‘bigot’ | Fox News

 

Ironically, Rutgers University “postponed” a speech about “Radicalism on College Campuses” because of radical leftist protests!

Rutgers University has apologized to a foreign policy expert and alum of the school after they scrapped her university-sponsored speech initially scheduled for Tuesday following left-wing protests.

Lisa Daftari was invited to speak on “Radicalism on College Campuses,” but her talk was “postponed” by Rutgers officials with no explanation following a Change.org petition that slammed her as a “hate-mongering” “Islamophobe” and “bigot” before a dueling petition urged the school to let Daftari speak.

“A small handful of campus bullies decided that they can throw around the word ‘Islamophobia’ in an unethical and irresponsible way, because it is one of the social justice buzzwords, and get their way,” Daftari told Shannon Bream Friday on “Fox News @ Night.”
