The University of Michigan planned to hold a screening of the hit film American Sniper this week, until a group of liberal students called it “anti-muslim.”
The school ended up canceling the screening due to fear of liberal backlash, and their football coach Michael Harbaugh was not happy about it. The coach took action by tweeting that his team would be watching the film and pay tribute to Chris Kyle.
Though Harbaugh risked his career and serious liberal backlash with this tweet, the reaction was overwhelmingly positive.
In fact, the reaction was so positive that the University of Michigan reversed their decision and apologized for canceling the screening in the first place.
We applaud Coach Harbaugh for taking a stand and winning the battle against University of Michigan in Chris Kyle’s honor. Go blue!
