American Sniper continues to smash through Box Office records for the second week in a row, as it quickly approaches $250 million in ticket sales. Clint Eastwood’s film is already being considered a modern masterpiece, and it exposes America to the deeply personal problems faced by our brave soldiers everyday.
Until you serve, you can’t possibly know what it’s like. America owes Navy SEAL Chris Kyle a debt of gratitude for the 160 confirmed kills.
But the Hollywood left isn’t pleased with him… Michael Moore and Seth Rogen have called Kyle a coward and compared him to a Nazi. Outrageous claims from men who enjoy the freedoms our military are sworn to protect.
My uncle killed by sniper in WW2. We were taught snipers were cowards. Will shoot u in the back. Snipers aren't heroes. And invaders r worse

Chris Kyle’s brother, Jeff Kyle came on Sean Hannity’s show to share his thoughts on the comments:
Just because somebody was killed by a sniper, it doesn’t make snipers cowards. Snipers are – they’re saviors. Everybody that’s been over that’s been in that situation was damn proud to have a sniper on watch.
For them to say that they’re cowards, that would be like PETA calling Michael Moore a murderer for all the cheeseburgers he’s eaten.
It puts the message out. It’s not a war story, it’s not a shoot ‘em up, blow ‘em up movie. It’s a story about a soldier in combat, whether it’s on the battlefield or off, he’s still in combat.
Thank you Jeff and Chris Kyle for your service to America!
