    Amid Muslim Student Association protests that the movie shows Muslims and Islam in a negative light and could promote Islamaphobia the Student Entertainment Events group at the University cancelled the planned showing of the movie American Sniper. God I love political correctness, nothing like taking away free speech so as not to offend anyone. :rolleyes: I'm sure the University will still allow students to view ISIS recruitment and beheading videos though.

    It portrays a war that we are currently (and probably forever) fighting.
    It is what it is.

    This. Most freshman/soph live in dorms with no cars. They are trapped on campus. This was one of the biggest movies of 2014. 20 butthurt sand reggies impose their will over a student population of thousands.

    We should probably ban Roots, the Color Purple, Amistad, and Django Unchained if we're worried about painting certain people in a negative light.

    Many of the complainers were likely white suburbanite "occupy wall street" types.

    Article says Muslim Student Association.

    "war propaganda guised as art reveals a not-so-discreet Islamaphobic, violent, and racist nationalist ideology."
    "This movie dehumanizes Muslim individuals, promotes the idea of senseless mass murder, and portrays negative and inaccurate stereotypes," the creators of the petition wrote. "This movie serves to do nothing but make a mockery out of such immense pain."

    oh the irony :rofl:

    How about a nice Christian beheading video for the Islam students?
    ....or maybe the stoning death of a gay couple?
