1. Now this is one weird piece of musical theater. Im guessing the theater has lost all its insurance as well.
(Exactly how many times can the students watch Bambi before they riot due to monotonous entertainment?)
A movie about an American soldier who fought against Islamic jihadists made students at the University of Michigan feel unsafe, and so the screening was canceled. Imagine if the people that Chris Kyle fought against showed up at the University of Michigan — would students feel unsafe then? Would they approach the jihadis and give them hugs and assure them that they were against “Islamophobia”? And if they did, what would the jihadis do in response?
“Paddington Bear” is the replacement film, which is fitting for these cosseted, coddled, comfortable, self-deluded children.
“Univ. of Michigan cancels ‘American Sniper’ screening: ‘Made students feel unsafe,’” by Derek Draplin, The College Fix, April 8, 2015 (thanks to Lookmann):
Istanbul’s chief public prosecutor has charged Ceyda Karan and Hikmet Cetinkaya with “inciting public hatred” and “insulting religious values” by illustrating their columns with the cartoon, the Hurriyet daily reported.
The cartoon was a smaller version of the controversial front cover depicting the Prophet Mohammed that French satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo printed in its first edition after the attack on its offices by Islamist gunmen in January that killed 12 people.
5. Story from Australia which is quite similar to one from Kingston Ontario a couple of years ago. CAUTION: Multiple auto play adds all over the page. Read and close ASAP!
6. Interesting short documentary on attitudes of various groups in Lyon France
The officials said a mortar inanded Wednesday on a residential area south of Sheik Zweid, a town in northern Sinai, hitting a house and killing nine of its residents.
Separately, officials said a missile landed on a house in another village, killing two civilians.
