A tiny minority of Muslim students at the University of Maryland forced the school to cancel a screening of the wildly popular “American Sniper” movie. CAIR started a petition, aiming to get 500, only got 318 signatures, and yet for some unknown reason officials thought that was enough.

More from Breitbart:
The university decided to cancel the screening after outcry from Muslim students on campus. The Muslim Students Association at the University of Maryland even started a petition requesting that the school pull the screening of American Sniper. In the petition, the group stated that the film “perpetuates the spread of Islamaphobia and is offensive to many Muslims around the world for good reason.”
Ironically enough, the group also requested that students “exercise their freedom of speech” by signing the petition to remove the film from campus. MSA seemingly got their wish this morning when the school decided to cancel the screening.
Good to know that Muslim students are so weak-minded that they can’t take a movie they disagree with being shown at their campus. But it’s no surprise that cowardly school officials would bow to such tiny pressure.
