Across America, Muslim activists imposing censorship on American students

Here we go again.

Another protest of a campus showing of the movie "American Sniper" by muslim students. This time in Maryland.

The University of Maryland announced it will postpone indefinitely an upcoming screening of “American Sniper” after Muslim students protested – calling the film Islamophobic, racist and nationalistic.

“American Sniper only perpetuates the spread of Islamophobia and is offensive to many Muslims around the world for good reason,” read a petition launched by the university’s Muslim Students Association. “This movie dehumanizes Muslim individuals, promotes the idea of senseless mass murder, and portrays negative and inaccurate stereotypes.”

The critically-acclaimed film about the life of Navy SEAL Chris Kyle was supposed to be screened May 6 and 7. It was “postponed” on April 22 by the university’s Student Entertainment Events (SEE).

This is not the first time that Muslims and their supporters have tried to silence the film.

In early April the University of Michigan canceled a campus screening only to later reverse that decision after a national uproar.

Similarly, when the film was shown at Eastern Michigan University, the Usual Suspects disrupted the showing.
Ahmed Abbas, earning his Ph.D. in psychology, Layali Alsadah, junior majoring in psychology, Jenna Hamed, senior majoring in apparel and textiles merchandise, and Sabreen Dari, junior majoring in psychology, worked with 35 other students to shut down the 8 p.m. and 10 p.m. showings of the Academy Award-winning film.

The protesters filed onto the stage under the screen and held up two signs. One read, “Is this your idea of dialogue?” and the other one had the definition of propaganda.

Hamed began speaking to the crowd about why the protesters where there.

“Do you want me to play a movie painting your people this way?” Hamed asked the crowd.

Department of Public Safety officers were called to escort the students out. According to Sergeant Shana Thompson, four students were arrested for disturbing the peace. They were released 40 minutes later and no charges were filed.

In March, they pulled this stunt at the University of Missouri and they're planning another protest on a campus in Texas.

Frankly, this is typical of the Left. No one is forcing anyone to watch this movie anywhere that it's being shown, but the Liberal Left--the ones who always claim to support "choice", are now demanding that NO ONE even have the choice to see this movie.
The Muslims Student Association said “American Sniper” creates a “dangerous climate for Muslim students and severely devalues the community atmosphere.”

The MSA said the only way to make the University of Maryland more inclusive and diverse is to prevent “American Sniper” from being shown on campus.
So there you go. You can't be trusted to make up your own mind. In the name of making mostly foreign students here feel safe and/or included, Americans have to accept restrictions on their right to choose (unless they are choosing to have an abortion) and we all have to accept censorship, with the foreign kids and their peers making the call.

Frankly, this is about as outrageous as a bunch of Japanese students coming to America in 1946 and demanding that no one be allowed to see a movie about Pearl Harbor.

well here's my suggestion to every muslim on an American campus who doesn't feel loved or welcomed: Either start working on your assimilation skills or just go back to whereever it is that you voluntarily came here from. I means, the last I checked, we no longer send our military abroad to kidnap muslim teens and force them to attend American universities.

  1. Frankly, this is about as outrageous as a bunch of Japanese students coming to America in 1946 and demanding that no one be allowed to see a movie about Pearl Harbor.

    If that happened in 1946, we would have hung them from the nearest light pole and the media would have cheered us on.

    But times have changed and now we're a lot more enlightened. In fact, it's time to tear down all of the crosses on Christian churches across the land so that Muslims can use them as mosques. And at the same time to satiate all of the progressives, all of the men can become women and then all of the women can become men...

  2. promotes the idea of senseless mass murder,

    It wasn't senseless, mass or murder. It was deliberate, one at a time, and combat. As opposed to, say, flying two airplanes into a populated building. The only thing the two events have in common is that both were deliberate.

    But, that's just the religion of peace in its usual modus operandi.

  4. The myth of the Islamic Silent Majority. They are perfectly able to protest, they just choose not to when the Muslims are beheading, burning, raping, and flying planes into buildings.

  5. This kind of crap will continue until it is met with violence. It's about time, but I wonder where we will find the men to do it among the eunuchs that now inhabit our campuses.

  6. When we make up our own minds, we demonstrate the failure of the indoctrination process they call "education".

    Our minds are supposed to be "made up" for us, and anyone demonstrating independent thought has shown that the "higher education" program has failed.
