    The Muslim Students Association said ďWe sincerely appreciate your commitment to exercising your freedom of speech to create an inclusive, just and safe campus communityĒ, suggesting it would be 'unsafe' if the movie were shown. Of course the movie was shown everywhere around the US and the millions who saw it were safe. The idea that it would it would be otherwise at the University of Maryland can only be viewed as a threat.

    You're reading too much into this. Don't be like those goofy Muslims.

    University of Maryland cancels
    Flip it around. Most likely they weren't talking about any possible safety concerns because of them (muslims) threatening the campus but instead referring to their (muslims) own safety on campus if the film emboldens hidden hatred or bigotry from others looking for that spark to justify conflict.

    Negative backlash is something to feel threatened by. They were threatened by the Muslim students' fury over the film and they were intimidated by this so to cancel the film. A university canceling a film because of protests from a group of people is always a bad sign and never a "perfect example of freedom".
    If you feel threatened by someone expressing their opinion then you are the same as people promoting political correctness, which is hilarious.

    What's hilarious is you not realizing that your own reference to a "do it or else" (The 'negative backlash' statement) atmosphere completely bases my point. Went right over your head it did.

    Does the University of Maryland, or any other University in the United States, or anywhere in the Democracies, have a history of rioting, damaging property, assault, or even murder, because of a film, cartoon, book, or anything else of that nature? Is this what you have been taught?

    Or if students are taught to be anti-Muslim in the University of Maryland and could murder Muslims as a consequence of watching the film, perhaps the entire University should be shut down now. These people would be too stupid to enter the general population.

    This is nothing but jihad by less violent means. It is sometimes called dawa, and Muslim Brotherhood front groups like the Muslim Students Association engage in it all the time. They can count on leftists, who don't like America any better than they do, to serve as their fifth column.

    So what does that mean to you? That the head of the MSA in Illinois never said it?

    It says clearly that the quote appeared on his Facebook page or, alternatively, you could simply Google the statement and discover for yourself what was said, where, and when. You seem typical of what it means to be a leftist in America, or anywhere, today.

    Surely you're not unfamiliar with the killings at Charlie Hebdo, the fatwa on Salman Rushdie, or the international riots, and killings, over a cartoon Muslims felt to be blasphemous. The potential of more Muslims "expressing their opinion" in this manner is what has Universities, and the media, cowering in fear.

    Members of this 'fifth column' are also called 'Dhimmis', and often also referred to as 'Leftists'. The terms are interchangeable.

    Not all. But it does take a certain type of brain to be a member of this religion, just as it does to be a member of any organization which abuses women, little girls, murders Gays, kills young women and children for dress codes, teaches hatreds, or murders anyone for leaving the group.
