Hat tip Breitbart
"I do not feel safe on this campus and for good reason. The fact that this film is being shown, the fact that I have to explain why this film is not only problematic but harmful makes me feel even more unsafe. Showing this film will create an even more hostile environment for me and other Arab, Muslim, South Asian and people of color on this campus."
The film, American Sniper, is about to be shown at the University of Missouri campus. That doesn't sit well with one Muslim student.
While I don't want to completely disregard this young woman's concerns, I do object to the wording of her letter. First of all, she has characterized Chris Kyle as "a killer with no regard for human life". I find that completely objectionable.
Secondly, she sure has picked up the leftist academic lingo, hasn't she? Enough said on that.
The good news is that in spite of her objections, the film will be shown. It's called free speech, something that is enjoyed by all sides. Unfortunately, a lot of people in academia haven't gotten that message yet.
