"We are Charlie!" my ass

An artwork depicting high-heeled shoes on Islamic prayer mats has been removed from an exhibition after a Muslim group warned of possible violence in the wake of the Paris attacks.

The French-Algerian artist, Zoulikha Bouabdellah, withdrew the work from an exhibition in a northern Paris suburb with a large Muslim population after an Islamic group told local authorities it could provoke “uncontrollable, irresponsible incidents.
Translation: "We are a bunch of uncontrollable, irresponsible children and cannot be held responsible for our actions!  We keel you!"

Write about how oppressive and vicious PC police have become, and they'll prove the point for you.

Attention Michael Moore and the other chickenshits:
When Gaith Mohammed, a young man in his twenties with a degree in accounting, went to see “American Sniper” during its opening week at Baghdad’s Mansour Mall, he says the theater was full and rowdy.

“Some people watching were just concentrating, but others were screaming ‘F*ck, shoot him! He has an IED, don’t wait for permission!!’” Mohammed laughed, recounting the film’s many tense scenes when US Navy SEAL sniper Chris Kyle, played by Bradley Cooper, radios in for authorization to take out a potential threat in his crosshairs.
Jalal says the movie doesn’t strike him as racist or anti-Arab. He says he finds the main character appealing regardless of the fact that he’s an American soldier killing Iraqis during the US-led occupation of his home country. 

“He was a hero and he went through difficult training,” Jalal explained, saying Chris Kyle was just serving his country, a universal duty for all men. “Besides,” he shrugged, “it’s just a movie, and I like war movies. If they are true or not, whatever!”

I think it was S.I. Hayakawa who was a Dean for some U California campus who stood up to the demostrators.
Someone should tell these "spokesmen who say there could be violent reactions to an art exhibit, "so, your saying you have a bunch of uncontrollable immature children for adults? Or some such thing. We've got to stop treating them like well, they're not white christian males, so naturally they have no agency.
