Sarah Palin is known for hating on the “lamestream media,” but the former Vice Presidential candidate went after a new target Monday.
In a Facebook post praising “American Sniper,” Palin took on “Hollywood leftists” who’ve criticized the depiction of U.S. troops in the film “American Sniper.”
“Hollywood leftists: while caressing shiny plastic trophies you exchange among one another while spitting on the graves of freedom fighters who allow you to do what you do, just realize the rest of America knows you’re not fit to shine Chris Kyle’s combat boots. May the epic ‘American Sniper’ bring nothing but blessings to Taya and the children of this true American hero.”
“American Sniper” has created a media firestorm since its release last week, with many outlets criticizing the movie for what they perceive as a glorification of American military might that killed innocent Iraqi citizens without regard for their lives.
“I was disturbed by the movie,” Schultz said, adding he is an American that loves the troops, but the movie just underscores “how many lives we’ve ruined because of doing something that was terribly wrong.”
On Fox News, Sean Hannity blasted Hollywood liberals—including Michael Moore and Seth Rogen—for criticizing the movie. On Sunday, Moore tweeted, “My uncle killed by sniper in WW2. We were taught snipers were cowards … Snipers aren’t heroes.”
Rogen tweeted: “American Sniper kind of reminds me of the movie that’s showing in the third act of Inglorious Basterds.”
Hannity noted it’s the U.S. military that allow Moore and Rogen their freedom of speech.
“Navy seals, our military, protect Michael Moore and Seth Rogen‘s right to be dumb, and ignorant, and idiotic in their comments,” Hannity said. “They’re both ignorant, elitist, narcissistic, Hollywood has-beens.”
