More Muslim bullying pays off for the "religion of peace".
Last time I checked, we were a nation which offered freedom of speech. If our weak leaders were honest with us, they would add an exception clause to the First Amendment. Yes, we have freedom of speech, unless it offends Muslim.
Shame on whoever is responsible for keeping Gen. William Boykin, a critic of Islam, from speaking at the West Point prayer breakfast.

CAIR Bullies Retired Army General Critical of Islam Out of West Point Prayer Breakfast…
"Chalk another victory up for CAIR.
(WaPo) — 'Retired Lt. Gen. William Boykin’s scheduled appearance at West Point’s annual prayer breakfaston Feb. 8 triggered protests from religious groups as well as veterans’ organizations.
A statement issued by West Point’s public affairs office Monday evening said that Boykin “has decided to withdraw” and that the academy would search for a replacement.
The outcome underscores the degree of controversy that continues to follow Boykin nearly eight years after he was reprimanded by the Pentagon for violating rules while delivering speeches in uniform that often mocked followers of Islam. In one instance, Boykin, a decorated special forces officer, said he knew that his side would prevail in a fight against a prominent Islamic militant in Somalia because “I knew that my god was bigger than his.”
The Council on American-Islamic Relations, which along with a group calling itself VoteVets.org had asked West Point to retract the invitation to Boykin, welcomed the retired Army officer’s decision.
CAIR’s executive director, Nihad Awad, said the group hopes that “the speaker who replaces him will offer cadets a spiritual message that promotes tolerance and mutual understanding.”'"
