The extent to which liberals will go to protect Muslims continues to baffle. Though left-wingers claim to be in support of women’s equality, they immediately bend over and shut up when a Muslim reminds them that misogyny is a part of his culture – and no real liberal would dare criticize a non-western culture for fear of being labeled “racist.” That’s basically what happened in the case of Oberlin College professor Ali Yedes, who was also a “Muslim religious life affiliate” at the Islamic Center of Cleveland.
Yedes’ issues with female staff members became known in 2006. Normally, when a woman files a harassment complaint against a man, the man’s ass is thrown out, no questions asked. However, when that man is a Muslim, immediately it becomes the woman whose behavior needs to change for whatever reason. Eun-Jung An, a professor of French and cinema studies, reported that Yedes said that “in [his] culture, he could have had the female department chair killed.” Of course, this was during a 45-minute tirade (read: foaming) in which Yedes demonstrated the trademark Islamic finger-point repeatedly. When An reported the threatening statement to a department senior, she was told to grow a thicker skin. That might be necessary considering Muslims’ propensity to get stabby. And lo and behold, guess what Yedes threatened in 2013? He told another professor he had brought his nephew to the US on a student visa to “stab and kill someone from his department.”
Of course, despite the threats, An was moved repeatedly by the college to avoid further interactions with the violent Muslim Yedes. Recently, An filed suit. In addition to the aforementioned savage behaviors, the suit also alleges that Yedes called An a “whore” (I’m guessing the word “uncovered” may also have been involved), and that his behavior has been both disruptive and physically aggressive, and has caused other staff members to leave. Hopefully An wins her suit, and Yedes can teach no more.
