It is the highest grossing war movie in U.S. history but — as we’ve reported previously — it is in the target sights of Muslim students. Once again, a showing of “American Sniper” has been cancelled, this time at the University of Maryland, College Park.

As reported by Foxnews.com, “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). While SEE did not mention the Muslim Students Association’s petition, they referenced a meeting with “concerned student organizations” about the film. “SEE is choosing to explore the proactive measures of working with others during the coming months to possibly create an event where students can engage in constructive and moderated dialogues about the controversial topics proposed in the film,” read a statement from SEE posted on the university’s website. The Muslim Students Association posted a Facebook message praising the university’s capitulation to their demands.”

  1. It would be accurate to say that I am not an avid movie goer since I have been averaging about one movie every two years for the last decade. There are two reasons for that. The first, the content in most movies is only appropriate for an individual with an IQ in the low double digits; the second, I refuse to support the leftist Hollywood establishment with my discretionary dollars. To me, purchasing a movie ticket for a show starring any of the liberal left or directed by someone of that camp is no better than sending a contribution to those whose goal is to undermine America and bring about the New World of Total Disorder.”

    I did see “American Sniper” and found it an excellent and provocative movie. Had the students at the University of Maryland bothered to watch it, I think they would be hard pressed to make a case for the film’s either glamorizing war or promotiong “Islamaphobia.” But even if the film had advocated for both causes, what Constitutional right do they have to prevent anyone from watching this film? The answer to that rhetorical question is, “None.”

    It’s time that colleges and universities return to their charter mission of providing an environment for free speech and allowing divergent opinions to be advocated vigorously or to be debunked by superior logic and stop engineering an agenda of limiting thought and promoting their own social agendas.
