After the progressive, politically-correct free speech police at the University of Michigan pulled the showing of mega-hit “American Sniper” after a small group of students complained that the film was anti-Muslim, new head football coach Jim Harbaugh took to Twitter and delivered a serious blow to the whiners.
[banner300 banner=”5517620b381df”][vc_column_text]Harbaugh, formerly an NFL quarterback and most recently, coach of the San Francisco 49ers, announced that the University of Michigan football team will watch “American Sniper,” that he is “proud of Chris Kyle, proud to be an American, and if that offends anybody, then so be it!”
Michigan Football will watch “American Sniper”! Proud of Chris Kyle & Proud to be an American & if that offends anybody then so be it!

An online letter complaining about the Academy Award-winning blockbuster, signed by “self-identified Middle Eastern & North African (MENA) and/or Muslim students” said that “watching this movie is provocative and unsafe to” them.
U of M “Campus Involvement,” after receiving the complaint, issued a statement apologizing for “causing harm to members of our community” by originally agreeing to show the film on campus.
However, after Coach Harbaugh’s powerful endorsement and act of defiance against university thought police, “Campus Involvement” reversed field and announced Wednesday that they would, in fact, show “American Sniper in a separate forum that provides an appropriate space for dialogue and reflection.”
Ironically, the University of Michigan will host radical rapper “Common,” a Muslim who sings about killing cops, bitches and hoes, rhetoric “Campus Involvement” must think doesn’t offend anyone.
So you see, watching an all-American movie about a military war hero, Chris Kyle, who is credited with snuffing out a record number of terrorists, is somehow “offensive,” but indoctrinating young and women with words abusive to women and singing about killing police officers is somehow considered wholesome and worthy of promotion, without blinking an eye, by the university thought police.
