    I'm rapidly reaching the conclusion that no right-wingers do. If any of them here do, I haven't seen 'em.
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

    that sounds like "we destroyed a village to save it"

    I think cancelling a film for the stated reason is stupid; however, the university has the right to do so if it wishes. It wished to do so.

    Ya just like SA shout downs were examples of free speech.

    Something tells me The Book of Mormon wouldn't be pulled if the LDS church complained to the same university.

    This shield Islam enjoys in the West - Islamophobia - that defends it from criticism is getting ridiculous. Who cares if the movie is racist or nationalistic? Malcolm X was racist and nationalistic, yet he is taught in African American studies classes with no complaints from white students or faculty members.

    Also, that movie did not promote 'mass murder' because 'mass murder' did not happen in Iraq. Sure, there was a war, but mass murders and wartime are not identical events.

    This is simply typical politically correct nonsense.

    agreed...they can, but whether they should is up for debate.... I think they should show it, it's a good movie...

    it's certainly anti-enemy combatant.. but it's not anti-Muslim....
    college kids need to stop being such whiny, coddled, entitled , little bitches...

    Freedom of speech? You think the constitution requires a university screen pornography?

    Who's freedom of speech was violated. A completely gratuitous, propaganda tool that offended the sensibilities of some students was canceled through the universities self censorship. Nobodies free speech has been violated.
    Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy
