Fascists: Muslim students at the University of Missouri want to prevent the screening of the film American Sniper because they don’t agree with it.

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.

The uproar was taken quite seriously, and prompted the student government to conduct a meeting to determine whether the flick should be shown. “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. [emphasis mine]

I haven’t seen the movie, and I am sure neither has Farah El-Jayyousi above. I however wouldn’t dream of censoring it. El-Jayyousi would love to, along with any other person who dares to criticize Islam and the culture of violence and hate that now dominates it.

    I wonder if Farah El-Jayyousi is in the United States on a student visa…

    In this country (so far) it’s not a crime to insult Islam. They should be more tolerant of other peoples lifestyles :)

    In time, this country will return to its basic values, for two reasons: 1) There is still a very large segment of the American population that holds dear the Constitution and our founding principles, and 2) Most of that very large segment of the American population is well armed, so outright tyranny will not be tolerated.

    On that day, a message will be conveyed to the likes of Farah El-Jayyousi that freedom is the paramount characteristic of America, particularly freedom of speech, and that if Farah El-Jayyousi is offended by that freedom he is cordially invited to leave here and find a country more congenial to his brand of ignorance. Otherwise, he is free to say whatever he likes, but nothing will come of it — nothing.

    By the way, Robert, “American Sniper” is an extraordinary film; the finest that Clint Eastwood, now age 84, has ever made; one of the finest war movies ever made, and one of the finest American movies. I encourage you to see it.

    Farah is a bully. She is using free speech to try to shut down free speech.

    She says that the movie, “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”

    Were it a requirement that all films shown have the best interests of everyone in mind, then no films could ever be shown, because every film has a nemesis — a bad guy. Even an innocent film such as “Bambi” does not have the interests of hunters in mind.

    Ironically, Farah the bully is criticizing a movie that is about bullies. The “sheepdog” scene explains the theme of the movie, that there are wolves (bullies) and sheepdogs, who protect the flock from the wolves. Farah is one of the wolves, trying to prevent us from enjoying our free speech rights.

    I encourage everyone to see “American Sniper.”

    “My Cousin Vinny” is a movie about the trial of two “Yutes” accused of a “Hi-anus” murder. But careful consideration reveals there are no “bad guy” in the film. Every single character is performing moral and conscientious fashion. One of the resins that it is one one my favorite movies. (Marisa Tomei doesn’t hurt the movie either)
