The campaign to have right wing radio talk show host John Gormley removed from the air reached another milestone recently, as John Gormley's alma mater, the University Of Saskatchewan School Of Law, issued a statement distancing itself from Gormley.
The controversy started on Nov 15, when Gormley, whose show 'John Gormley Live' is carried on news stations across Saskatchewan, posted on twitter "Next guy in a western democracy who chants 'Allah Ackhbar', we shoot.". .
Allah Ackhbar, meaning 'God is great' is a common saying for Muslims, the Muslim equivelent to 'Amen', so the comment was directed at Muslims in general.
Organizers of the campaign encourage people spreading the petition, or stories related to John Gormley, using the #SpreadNoHate hashtag in solidarity with the United Nations #SpreadNoHate campaign against hate speech recently launched at the UN Symposium on hate speech.
