UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND pussies cave to pressure from Muslim Brotherhood front groups and cancel screening of ‘American Sniper

Get a clue, ‘American Sniper’ does not create ‘Islamophobia.’  Americans hate Muslims because of their supremacist, violent, misogynistic, homophobic, anti-Christian, antisemitic, and other anti-social behaviors, not because a movie shows the consequences of their actions.

Apparently this decision was not applauded by most non-Muslim students at the university, judging by the comments they posted on the UMD Muslim Students Association Facebook page:

  • Craig Silman So I guess that any speech you do not agree with is hate speech and any speech you like is free speech? This is a sad commentary on the state of affairs of colleges and universities. When one person/group can stop open discourse by by saying they areSee More

  • Holly Wangelin-Reid Way to stifle FREEDOM of SPEECH! Your organization seeks to discourage the FUNDAMENTAL RIGHTS GRANTED BY THE AMERICAN CONSTITUTION! Your actions are so UNAMERICAN! If you like banning freedom of speech, expression and rights might I suggest that you attend a University in a MUSLIM country. This is the UNITED STATES of AMERICA.

I have not seen anyone go out & try to kill a bunch of Muslim students, but I have seen where Muslims have killed a lot of American & Christians.
