Screening of ‘American Sniper’ Canceled at University of Maryland after Muslim students complain

A planned screening of the film American Sniper on the University of Maryland campus has been been canceled after outcry from Muslim students.

The school’s conservative group released this statement in response:

The University of Maryland Student Entertainment Events (SEE) decided to screen American Sniper on May 6 and 7, 2015. After meeting with concerned student organizations, SEE has decided to ‘postpone’ the movie.

If the University prevents a movie like this from being shown, it promotes intolerance and stifles dialogue and debate on the subject and goes directly against the atmosphere of diversity the University of Maryland purports to provide.

    Let’s hope there is much more “backlash” for these sorts of stunts.

      My backlash is silent.
      I don’t deal with them.
      I don’t let them serve me food, I’ll get up and leave.
      I don’t shop at their stores.
      I don’t hire them unless I am forced to by management.
      I don’t help them in any way.
      I don’t have to protest, I just vote with my wallet.

    Fuck the savages, let them whine. Whining and brutality are about all they’re good at. Show the movie and quit bowing down to these bastards.

    So ‘exercise’ your freedom of speech by shutting down someone else’s

    Perhaps it’s time non-Muslims complain every time a Muslim organization is granted to right to do anything on public property.

    It’s important not to scare the Muslims.

    Guilt.

    ‘…the group also requested that students “exercise their freedom of speech”…’

    If you want to see Muslim students idea of free speech watch Pamela Geller’s latest video from Brooklyn College: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5_OI0WhbSjo

    Maybe the muzzle’ems would be happier with a “Kill da Joooo Festival”?

    Like we learned all the bad stuff about Islam from some Hollywood movie. The nightly news and/or internet is quite sufficient.

    Require all Mohammedan students to watch the movie in order to achieve a ‘pass’ at the end of this school year. Call it the “Exercise of Free Speech Participation Score”. Tell them Mohammed would approve it as a learning experience.

    Cheers

    Why exactly are there Muslim students there in the first place?
