High School Students Forced to Listen to Islamic Supremacist Reza Aslan

Even worse, the lecture notice says:

“This is a required event for Mercersburg students and faculty.”

Please contact Mercersburg Academy, a coed boarding high school in Mercersburg, Pennsylvania; this Monday, December 12, Islamic supremacist Reza Aslan is delivering the “Schaff Lecture on Ethics and Morals” — a unfortunate choice, given the intellectually dishonest and deceptive Aslan’s demonstrably unethical behavior over the years.

One of the most unfortunate aspects of the politically correct straitjacket that binds contemporary public discourse is that deceitful mediocrities and intellectual flotsam and jetsam like Reza Aslan, who aren’t capable of independent thought or of defending their own positions except with lies and scorn, are lauded and lionized by the clueless and compromised elites, solely because they parrot currently fashionable opinions.

Aslan poses as a modern, moderate Muslim, and fools many; in reality, however, he is a Board member of the president of the George Soros-funded National Iranian American Council (NIAC), a powerful Iranian lobbying group in Washington. Arash Irandoost of the Pro-Democracy Movement of Iran calls NIAC chief Trita Parsi “an intellectually dishonest regime apologist and an unofficial and unregistered lobbyist for the Iranian regime.” According to Irandoost, “Trita Parsi contributes to the regime’s agenda and serves the interests of those in power in the Islamic Republic of Iran, not the Iranians, nor the Iranian-Americans.”

And the Progressive American-Iranian Committee says that when NIAC received funding for various projects from the National Endowment for Democracy (NED), “NIAC’s projects were approved and welcomed by the Iranian regime.” NIAC coordinated its work inside Iran with Hamyaran, a “government initiated agency incepted [sic], initiated, founded and managed by the Iranian regime.” NIAC even lobbied the U.S. Congress to “stop appropriating funds for independent democratic movements and NGOs that were not under Hamyaran or regime’s control.”

It is no surprise in light of Aslan’s NIAC connection that he has tried to pass off Iran’s genocidally-minded President Ahmadinejad as a liberal reformer. He has called on the U.S. Government to negotiate with Ahmadinejad himself, as well as with Hamas — that is, with two of the most barbaric and murderous adherents of Sharia.

And now… the rest of the story. …..
