Granted, there is no way a sniper could ever miss hitting Michael Moore, but calling Chris Kyle “a coward,” seems out of line for even an angry leftist like him – by Rodney Lee Conover – friend me – no one turned away.
As “American Sniper” becomes a box office hit since its release last weekend, Michael Moore tweeted that snipers like Navy SEAL Chris Kyle – the subject of Clint Eastwood’s film – are ‘cowards’ who ‘shoot you in the back.’
The Oscar-bound film is based on Kyle’s autobiography and focuses on his success on the battlefield and how protecting his brothers in arms haunted Kyle and made him never want to stop fighting in Iraq.
The irony is that Moore refers to his own uncle, whom he claims was killed by a sniper in WWII.
I just wish someone like Chris Kyle was around to protect Moore’s brave uncle, who by the way served in part to guarantee the Rights of Americans – even if it’s the repulsive speech of actual cowards.
Moore is no doubt referencing “American Sniper,” starring Bradley Cooper, which tells the story of Navy Seal Chris Kyle – credited with 160 confirmed kills – the most in American military history.
I would love just once to how see a far-left, hate spewing liberal like Michael Moore would react in the moment of truth when it came to saving someone’s life. Anyone. My guess is a sloveny liberal like Moore would shrink for the first time in his life…
Forget about the battlefield – what has Michael Moore ever done to save anyone? Has he ever stared down more than a jelly doughnut? My guess is Moore’s uncle if he were alive today would look at his obese and angry nephew and see exactly what we do: A spoiled, rich, entitled miscreant – who got rich off the backs of dead soldiers, fighting for American’s freedoms.
From The Daily Mail:
Filmmaker Michael Moore has slammed snipers as ‘cowards’ who ‘shoot you in the back’ on the same weekend Oscar-tipped movie American Sniper hit cinemas. Raised in rural Texas, Kyle in 2003 was deployed to Iraq, where he made his first long-distance kills even though he had not been trained as sniper.
With an obvious talent, he was sent to the SEAL sniper school, where he was taught warfare’s loneliest and most controversial job.

In 2004, Kyle was posted to Fallujah, west of Baghdad and a major battleground of Iraqi insurgency, and it was during the battle for that city where he made his mark.
However, it was in 2006 in Ramadi, a city in central Iraq, that Kyle gained his nickname as ‘The Legend’ from his fellow SEALs.
One day, while positioned on a roof, Kyle watched a moped coming down a street. Riding it were two men, one of whom dropped a backpack into a pothole. One day, while positioned on a roof, Kyle watched a moped coming down a street. Riding it were two men, one of whom dropped a backpack into a pothole. Kyle took a shot at the speeding moped from a range of 150 yards. The bullet hit one of the riders, passed through him, and hit the other.
Kyle was credited with saving hundreds of American lives by making 160 confirmed kills, which is the most in American military history. He claimed to have shot down 255.
The firm, which is based on Kyle’s autobiography of the same reveals not only how he became so successful, but also how the trauma of fighting in Iraq never left him.
This is what Michael Moore calls cowardice?
Friend me on Facebook – if you dare. No one turned away.

We were taught snipers were cowards. Will shoot u in the back. Snipers aren’t heroes. And invaders r worse” After receiving blowback, Moore returned to Twitter to attempt to deflect critics saying “Hmm. I never tweeted 1word bout AmericanSniper/ChrisKyle. I said my uncle killed by sniper in WWII; only cowards would do that 2 him, others”??
