The majority of the American people clearly recognize that America and the civilized world has a barbaric enemy (Islamic Jihadists) who are intent upon subjugating us or cutting all of our heads off.
Many affiliates of Hollywood wish to fantasize this danger away.
Hollywood has been in the fantasy business for so long that many of its participants seem to actually believe that what they choose to put on the silver-screen and on our TV is reality. In other words, Hollywood has bought into its own progressive-lie that all reality is constructed-reality—just fabricated narrative.
Wrong! In the current buzz-phrase: Reality is what it is.
What is my evidence that the American people recognize what Hollywood does not want to accept?
Clint Eastwood’s American Sniper ignited the holiday weekend box office, leaving January records behind as it made a stunning $90.2 million in three days.
The total easily topped the previous January high, James Cameron’s Avatar at $68 million in 2010. Warner Bros. estimates that American Sniper will make $105 million over the four-day Martin Luther King weekend, which would be another record.
“This is staggering. It’s blockbuster numbers in January, the sort of numbers usually reserved for summer films and superhero movies,” says Paul Dergarabedian, senior analyst for Rentrak. “No one saw this coming. The film has been building an audience and blasting any projections all weekend.”
So, “No one saw this coming”? Who is “no one”?
“No one” of course is the Hollywood illuminati, the elite, those media-savvy, self-appraised best-of-the-best. A smug, never-identified, sub-set of progressive film-makers and anti-American actors who have decided that they, and they alone, know what actually is reality; and their mission is to insure that Americans know about true-reality even if they, the few, the smug, the all-knowing guardians of reality have to proclaim the correct-world to ignorant Americans. And if the majority of Americans don’t buy into their proclamations of reality, what then? They blast the “bitter clingers” with hate:
Every Seat, Every Show, Every Theater: SOLD OUT – American Sniper – Record Breaking Box Office Smash Hit
Leftist movie types like Michael Moore, and those of similar disposition who hate America, are having meltdowns at the success of American Sniper. They are so wound up with hate, they just don’t know what to do.
—Sniper, Smash Hit
Over the weekend, multiple Academy members told TheWrap that they had been passing around a recent article by Dennis Jett in The New Republic that attacks the film for making a hero out of Kyle, who said: “The enemy are savages and despicably evil,” and his “only regret is that I didn’t kill more.” Kyle made the statements in his best-selling book, “American Sniper,” on which the film is based.
—Some of The Academy Complains
The “Academy” is of course the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. This is the group who awards Oscars each year. This is the group (estimated 6000+) of never-clearly-identified people who decide, via balloting, each year which movies, actors, directors, etc. are the best. Of course the Academy’s voting-decision process is about as transparent as the Obama Administration’s handling of Benghazi or the IRS scandal; all the public ever gets are the final decisions, but no explanation of details.
This self-appointed censorship group (an unidentified disgruntled sub-group of the 6000+ Academy voting membership) desperately hates the fact that a pro-war movie can succeed in America while anti-war movies are notorious failures; however, what they really, really hate, in the case of American Sniper, is the honest evaluation of the savage brutes, the Islamic Jihadists, who are realistically described by the real life hero, Chris Kyle. Of course the America-hating collection of Hollywood-types prefers a make-believe, phoney-hero such as Liam Neeson in Taken 3 who in real-life conforms to their leftwing ideology.
Kyle stated in his best-selling book: “The enemy are savages and despicably evil,” and his “only regret is that I didn’t kill more.”
This sort of real-world truth drives the left more insane than they already are.
Like Obama they want to hug all the despicably evil savages who are trying to destroy us; and find a non-personal, antiseptic-way (e.g., via remote-controlled drones) to kill a few of the enemy just for political-show; but never, ever, will they support the sentiment that a properly-directed US military should logically operate under a mission of “seek and destroy our enemies”; and that mission shouldn’t be terminated until our enemies are no longer a threat—either they surrender or they die, their choice.
You won’t find the above sentiment in the modern Progressive/Democrat party. Progressivism corrupts every concept including the concept of war. That is why it is unwise and extremely-dangerous to have the Democrat-party in power during a war—yeah…by way of comparison it’s just unwise and normally-dangerous to have the Democrat-party in power during peace time. In case you have forgotten, America has been in a continuous war with Islamic Jihadists since September 11, 2001; regardless of Obama’s nonsensical denials.
Who will we, as a nation, turn-to for national-defense if and when we completely destroy the fighting motivation of all of our potential Chris Kyles by not vigorously-countering contemptuous, cowardly criticism from America-haters such as Michael Moore—criticism that is published, promoted, and amplified by the ever-unfaithful, denigrate-America-and-its-military media.
I am grateful for men such as Chris Kyle.
I’ll trade you all of the millions of pusillanimous, do-nothing-but-march Je suis Charlie’s for one genuine Chris Kyle—“only regret is that I didn’t kill more.”
