#NotAllMuslims At The University Of Missouri Feel Triggered By American Sniper

Rule #1 of a dispute, any dispute, between Muslims and non-Muslims: Muslims are the victims. Always, always, always.

Especially on a university campus. It’s supposed to be a safe place for learning, and that means shielding students from anything they don’t like. Jennifer Kabbany, College Fix:

Some Muslim students at the University of Missouri protested an upcoming campus screening of “American Sniper” and clamored to have the film’s debut there canceled.

At the heart of the controversy is a Muslim student activist who declared showing the film on campus would make her feel “unsafe” and demanded an “apology and explanation” as to how and why the movie was even selected for Mizzou audiences…

“This film is blatant racist, colonialist propaganda that should not be shown under any circumstances and especially not endorsed by a branch of student government that purports to represent me and have my best interests in mind,” student Farah El-Jayyousi had stated…

El-Jayyousi accused the movie of dehumanizing Muslims and glorifying the murder of Iraqis, and referred to Chris Kyle, the Navy SEAL featured in the film, as “a killer with no regard for human life.”

That last part might come as news to the people whose lives Kyle saved, but they’re probably all racists anyway.

Now that American hero Farah El-Jayyousi has spoken, does anybody care that she’s being made to feel unsafe? Are they cancelling the screening?

Whaddaya think?

On Friday, the students association finally weighed in, saying the movie will be shown as originally planned on April 17 and 18 – but promised to have some sort of event to help “cultivate an inclusive campus climate.”

Nice try, but such an “event” isn’t very “inclusive” unless it involves burning all available copies of the movie. How is this young woman supposed to feel safe when horrible hate speech like American Sniper is allowed to exist? How is she supposed to have a conversation about tolerance if people she doesn’t like are allowed to speak?

It’s very, very, very problematic.

Do the right thing, Clint Eastwood. Look into your heart, Bradley Cooper. For the sake of fragile Muslim college students everywhere, you must take back your racist, colonialist, fascist movie.

Or else.
