Have you seen American Sniper yet? Funny how the Liberals and the US haters attempt to spin the movie into something it is not! Glorification of war? If you believe that, then you obviously have never seen the movie, read the book, fought in a war to defend the United States or lost a friend or loved one who was selflessly standing up for our country.
Michael Moore — who continues to slam the movie, calls the hero a coward, and vomits up his warped opinion and feelings about the movie — obviously does not understand how it works. His right to stand up and spew forth his hatred for our Veterans and this country was handed to him on a silver platter bought and paid for by our Military, and the very hero he is calling a coward. He and others like him need to get on their knees and thank God that the United States has brave and willing young men and women to stand up and fight for this country and their rights. If not our military than who? Michael Moore? Seth Rogen? Madonna? Better Midler? Liam Neison? Eva Longoria, to name a few? Don’t hold your breath America. We all saw them beg for mercy when North Korea exposed them for who they really are, and forced them to stop the release of their movie, The Interview. Where were the big-mouthed, look at me, look at me, do as I say and not as I do, Hollywood elites then? Tucking their tails between their legs and running for the hills. The same Hollywood elites who scream for equal rights for women, gays and the downtrodden, all while secretly, in emails to each other, reveal their true disgust with anyone other than themselves.
In 2012, Madonna stood up at a concert and screamed, “For better or for worse, all right, we have a black Muslim in the White House, OK?” Other than being booed off the stage, I guess she has no understanding of the concept of truth and honor. Our leaders should say what they mean and mean what they say. Telling the truth matters to most Americans and they expect the truth when voting for the very person that will set the stage for generations to come. Or what about Bette Midler, who stated that she was happy that the IRS targeted conservatives for their political beliefs. I guess she does not understand how the constitution works, or that IRS targeting can go both ways. If she supports and cheers their illegal behavior, then she needs to be prepared when the IRS decides to target red-headed, has-been actresses. Although hypocrisy and selfishness along with self-importance and delusional feelings of grandeur might be what moves those in Hollywood, it does nothing for the rest of us peons.
The Hollywood elite refuse to see their own behavior as inappropriate and wrong. They are paid to advertise for Obamacare, yet refuse to participate in it. The very people who claim inequality is bad, yet scream foul if they don’t make $15 million for a movie or $1 million for every 30 minute sitcom they make? The very ones who agree to higher taxes on the everyday American, while they receive tax credits and demand political favors in return for their donations or the use of their images? The elitists who demand gun control while they are surrounded by body guards who brandish the very weapons they want to take away from the rest of us? The hypocrites who make millions of dollars on movies that glorify weapons and killing, all while claiming guns go against their very core beliefs? The hollywood hypocrites that call our military warmongers and cowards for facing the enemy all while the hardest part of their day is putting on their make-up facing a camera?
Thank God for the actors and directors in Hollywood that stand up for our rights and use their talents to highlight the very individuals that make it possible for them to make their millions. Thank you for Clint Eastwood, Bradley Cooper, Dinesh D’souza, Ronald Reagan, Charlton Heston, John Voight, Gary Sinise, Bruce Willis, Kevin Sorbo, Dennis Leary, James Woods, Dennis Miller, Patricia Heaton, to name a few. The people who stand up for their beliefs regardless of the backlash they receive from the Hollywood hypocrites who claim to support freedom of speech and religion while they bully those who expect to use those rights. If this country had to count on the majority of the shallow elitists in Hollywood to defend our rights, we would all be holding our own heads by now. Hollywood has a sick obsession about being in the limelight and pretending to be what we know they are not. What they don’t seem to understand is that the American people appreciate their ability to stand up and pretend to be someone else, but we don’t care about their political feelings or views and we don’t want to hear about them. We want them to do what we pay them to do….ACT!
Chris Kyle, a true American hero, has been embraced by the American people. If Michael Moore and Seth Rogen don’t think he is a hero, then maybe they can explain how the movie, in one of the slowest movie months of the year, managed to pull in over $100 million in the first four days of its release. If it is really a story of a coward, then how did it manage to pull in over $200 million after only a few weeks? Or what about the Academy Award nominations it has received? A total of six; Best picture, best actor, best adapted screenplay and others.
Is Michael Moore really in a position to criticize American Sniper or its hero, Chris Kyle? He has made 7, less than stellar, films that have grossed a total of $187 million, since 1989. You would think by now, he would figure out that the American people just don’t care for his ranting and constant whining about the very Nation that has allowed him to make his movies. Add in Seth Rogen’s less than fabulous reviews for “The Interview,” and you have to ask if either one of them are in a position to judge others? The Interview, as reported by Sony, made $17.8 million from on demand outlets and theaters, achieved only because they were bullied by the North Koreans. Isn’t it ironic that a country who has no freedoms or civil rights, succeeded in scaring them out of releasing their movie, yet they dare criticize our country and military who fought for the very freedoms they enjoy here?
How could any of us forget or believe that another Hollywood elite, Jesse Ventura, would sue the widow of Chris Kyle for a fight that happened after Ventura insisted that the SEALS serving in Iraq had not suffered enough casualties saying “You deserve to lose a few.” What kind of person says that to the very people who fought for his safety and his rights? Hollywood elitist hypocrites!
American Sniper is well worth the watch. A great movie about a great man who served his country proudly! Kudos to Clint Eastwood and Bradley Cooper for showing the American people what real heroes look like!
