Boomer Esiason not donating to U of MD again as American Sniper campus viewing is canceled


The University of Maryland postponed a screening of “American Sniper” after Muslim students protested, calling the film Islamophobic, racist, and nationalistic.

“American Sniper only perpetuates the spread of Islamophobia and is offensive to many Muslims around the world for good reason,” read a petition launched by the university’s Muslim Students Association. “This movie dehumanizes Muslim individuals, promotes the idea of senseless mass murder, and portrays negative and inaccurate stereotypes.”

U of MD's Student Entertainment Events (SEE) replied:

“SEE is choosing to explore the proactive measures of working with others during the coming months to possibly create an event where students can engage in constructive and moderated dialogues about the controversial topics proposed in the film."

The controversial topics proposed in the film? What the hell are you brats talking about? Breyer Hillegas, president of the university’s College Republicans, was confused as well: “If the university prevents a movie like that from being show – it promotes intolerance and stifles dialogue and debate – and goes directly against the atmosphere that the University of Maryland is supposed to support."

Indeed.

Boomer Esiason, alumnus, took to Twitter: "… never donating another dime to U of MD. As a 9/11/01 victim I'm deeply saddened and insulted. #ChrisKyle is a HERO!"

100% with you Boomer. Never donating to U of MD either. Never.

It's been quite the strong week from Esiason.
