What next for the elites: University of Michigan cancels, then reverses on “American Sniper” screening

From The Washington Post:

The University of Michigan canceled a showing of the film “American Sniper” after nearly 300 protesters spoke out, saying the film advances “negative and misleading stereotypes” against Muslims. The university has since reversed its decision.

“American Sniper” focuses on the story of Chris Kyle, often described as the most lethal sniper in U.S. military history. As a Navy SEAL, Kyle reportedly recorded 160 kill shots during his four tours in Iraq.

In response to the initial cancellation, Michigan football coach Jim Harbaugh tweeted support for the film and said his players will watch it.
