Wake Forest University Attacks 1st Amendment Using Hillary Clinton’s ‘Istanbul Process’ Model

Whether its leaders realize it or not, Wake Forest University is laying the groundwork for Hillary Clinton’s stated techniques for implementing the Istanbul Process, which seeks to eliminate criticism of Islam. Beginning this school year, Wake Forest is encouraging students to anonymously “report bias” according to a letter on the school’s website that includes instructions on how to do so.

Here is an excerpt (h/t DC):

The University considers acts of bias and hate unacceptable and intolerable.

With the support of the University’s senior leadership, the Division of Campus Life and the Office of Diversity & Inclusion have developed a Bias Incident Response Team to facilitate the development and implementation of a campus-wide Bias Incident Response System. Students, faculty, and staff may use this system to report bias-related incidents that they have witnessed or experienced, for review and investigation by the University.

As for the Istanbul Process, it began in response to a UN Human Rights Council (UNRC) resolution passed in early 2011 with the help of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC). Make no mistake; this Resolution is another step in a long term process to get non-Muslim countries to criminalize criticism of Islam. As is the case with every left-wing, progressive agenda, it’s an incremental process. That resolution (16/18) included language that called for…

“…fighting against intolerance, negative stereotyping, stigmatization, discrimination, incitement to violence and violence against individuals because of their religion or belief.”

Keep the verbiage on the Wake Forest website in mind as we fast forward a few months to July of 2011. A meeting co-chaired by then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton took place in Istanbul, Turkey. As Shoebat.com reported, Clinton’s speech included the following (the last sentence in bold is key):

In the United States, I will admit, there are people who still feel vulnerable or marginalized as a result of their religious beliefs. And we have seen how the incendiary actions of just a very few people, a handful in a country of nearly 300 million, can create wide ripples of intolerance. We also understand that, for 235 years, freedom of expression has been a universal right at the core of our democracy. So we are focused on promoting interfaith education and collaboration, enforcing anti-discrimination laws, protecting the rights of all people to worship as they choose, and to use some old-fashioned techniques of peer pressure and shaming, so that people don’t feel that they have the support to do what we abhor.

Don’t have the support to do what we abhor?

In other words, Clinton was calling for people to be intimidated into not exercising their freedoms granted them by the Constitution Clinton swore an oath to uphold.

Let’s go back to the Report Bias page of the Wake Forest website:

…barriers to inclusion exist on our campus, and occasionally members of our community behave in ways that are disrespectful and uncivil to others. This may include, for example, slurs, jokes, or even vandalism targeted at an individual(s) because of their race, gender, religion, sexual orientation, or ethnic origin. Such acts of incivility, including bias and hate, do not reflect our values and threaten our ability to create and maintain a safe and supportive environment.

Notwithstanding the fact that “bias and hate” are not “acts”, it sounds like Wake Forest is laying the groundwork for “some old-fashioned techniques of peer pressure and shaming” against those who “do what (they) abhor”.

As Shoebat.com has reported, overwhelming evidence exists that the Obama administration attempted to use the video it blamed for the Benghazi attacks to further the Istanbul Process as well. An informant at the time he produced that video, the man known as Nakoula Basseley Nakoula (aka Sam Bacile) began casting for the video one day prior to Hillary’s speech at the first Istanbul Process meeting.
