Facebook Page Reveals FAU Advisor Fears Muslim Law, Gay Rights, Has Extreme Right-Wing Views UPDATED
Roxanna Trinka is President/CEO of a company called Baseline Engineering. She's also a Director of the Research Park at Florida Atlantic University, an advisor to the school's College of Engineering, and served on Palm Beach County's Criminal Justice Commission.
It's a free country. So there's no reason Trinka shouldn't be free to believe what she believes and say what she says. And since she's a public figure with some influence there's no reason we shouldn't report it. Especially since she blabs it all over Facebook.
Here's a little joke Trinka "liked" on her page June 5:
The Iranian Ambassador to the UN had just finished giving a speech and walked out into the lobby of the convention center where he was introduced to a U.S. Marine General. As they talked, the Iranian said, "I have just one question about what I have seen in America." The General said, "Go ahead." The Iranian whispered, "My son watches this show called Star Trek and in it there is... Kirk who is Canadian, Chekhov who is Russian, Scotty who is Scottish, Uhura who is black, and Sulu who is Japanese, but there are no Muslims. My son is very upset and doesn't understand why there aren't any Iranians, Iraqis, Afghans, Egyptians, Palestinians, Saudis, Syrians, or Pakistanis on Star Trek." The General laughed, leaned toward the Iranian Ambassador, and whispered in his ear, "That's because it takes place in the future..."
Well, maybe it isn't all that funny. Maybe Trinka would like to run it by the good folks in Dubai at HDG Mansur, who own the primary developer and operator of the Research Park at Florida Atlantic University, which has an estimated $300 million annual impact on the local economy, and on whose board of directors Trinka sits. See if they get a kick out of it.
Or maybe she can share it with another of the Research Park's partners, FAU's College of Engineering and Computer Science, a significant number of whose faculty and students are from Muslim backgrounds, and on whose Executive Advisory Council she also sits.
She might also share with them the analysis she posted June 5, "Why muslims [sic] do what they do" (it has something to do with restoration of the Caliphate), which Trinka passed along from a friend at Bikers Against Islamic Terrorism. Good source!
Even if they don't get the joke, those partners may be able to allay Trinka's fears about the imposition of Shari'ah law in the U.S., which greatly concerns her. According to her post of April 5, 2011, "Coming soon to a neighborhood near you. A FL judge already ruled in favor of Sharia Law in a Civil Case. (Tampa) Don't think it will stop there."
