IAC Exclusive! On location at UCLA covering the Panel Discussion on “Totalitarian Islam’s Threat to the West”
I decided to covertly attend this discussion at UCLA on Thursday evening with my friend and co-worker Steve. We knew from posts like Jawa’s and LGF’s that it would definitely be an interesting event, with Wafa Sultan, Daniel Pipes and Yaron Brook speaking. Considering the controversial nature of the issue and previous disruptions at Daniel Pipes speeches, we were on the lookout for crazy protesters, or worse, from the many that showed up outside Moore Hall. Living up to expectations, shortly after arriving we saw many protesters handing out ridiculous “Expose Daniel Pipes” brochures, that were obviously pure propaganda handed out by the local Imams’ minions. Although no violence erupted at this event, a small police force was present from start to finish and all members of the discussion panel were wearing bullet proof vests underneath their clothing.
We got there a little early, around 6:45, to make sure we got seats for this popular event. This is what it looked like behind me once we got up to the front. Obviously it was a packed house, and people were streaming in to grab a seat, as soon as someone would leave, long after the discussion began.
This post will be edited later when more video that we took is available, most likely within 24 hrs. Here are a couple pics of what went down, and the video of the protest inside.
From left to right: Yaron Brook, Wafa Sultan, and Daniel Pipes
I must say I am a huge supporter of Dr. Sultan, and was excited most to hear her speak (if you haven’t seen or heard her before, click here and here). I have also known of Daniel Pipes from his blog Danielpipes.org, and was especially curious to hear what he had to say as well. I did not know much about Yaron Brook, however, before checking his Wiki and reading up a little on him. I must say I was very impressed by his articulation, resolve, and clarity among the issue of Totalitarian Islam.
We were expecting the protesters to surface inside after seeing them hassling the line outside, and as predictable as ever they did make a scene. What disgraced us the most was not the Islamic protesters, but even worse….ready for this? The crazy, far left, white woman protester who, with her partner, had two shirts that combined to say “Liar”. All protesters, mostly Muslim, stood up and walked out. Mostly Islamic, that is… there was one crazy lefttard Cindy Sheehan clone who tried to disrupt everything. We had to listen to this idiot rant for far longer than the moderator and security should have allowed. White Americans protesting a panel on Islam…this far left idiocy only exemplifies what the Enemy Within really represents.
As she was escorted out by security to the tune of the crowd chanting “Out! Out! Out!”, she started waiving her arms dramatically while trying to shout over everyone else. People started yelling back at her, to drive her out, as security mildly escorted all the protesters out. I mean, after what happened at UC irvine, is anyone surprised? It was more of a lame, obvious, planned spectacle and everyone in the room was just like, “yea, yea, get it over with already, you idiots…back to the discussion!” There was a large older demographic there that were yelling a lot of things back at the protesters including the chant “out!” as they were escorted from the building.
Here’s the video of the incident. We apologize in advance for the rancidness of this woman’s voice that you will be subjected to (here is an alternate link to the video):
Then this idiot crawls into view… if you look closely at the banner he is holding, it says something about “Don’t Support” and what appears to be (edit – saw this from another angle on a separate video) “Hate Speech”. You can’t see half of the sign because his cohorts chickened out when the crowd started shouting. It should really speak for itself, and give an obvious representation of what these protesters stand for.
With Daniel Pipes:
With Yaron Brook:
It’s late right now, and I will update soon with video and more of an opinion.
*Update* [SistaInfidel]-From a commenter at LGF, here’s proof the “LIar” moonbat was…um…lying: Daniel Pipes appears on al Jazzerah to discuss Bush’s speech.
*Update* [Infidelesto] – We will have more video, you can also see Student of Objectivism comment about the event, and a more in-depth analysis on each speaker posted tonight or tomorrow, so stay tuned!
