Hollywood Idiots Slander ‘American Sniper’

Michael Moore is being Michael Moore again.

Moore- the stubbornly sloppy socialist who appropriates a hypocritical, “down-with-the-regular-folk” schtick to mask the fact that his slickly-edited, hit-piece documentaries have made him a one-percenter, sounded off on the Chris Kyle biopic, “American Sniper.”

From the Daily Caller

Kyle, the most lethal sniper in military history, saved countless lives of American soldiers in his 4 tours of duty in Iraq. He was killed in February of 2013 by a fellow soldier he was trying to help who was suffering from severe post-traumatic stress.

But, of course, none of that matters to the chewed-up piece of bubble gum known as Michael Moore. The fact that Kyle was so efficient in his job probably adds to Moore’s snarkiness.

So according to this fat socialist, snipers are “cowards” who “aren’t heroes”.  Amazing

First, of course is Moore’s inability to resist the temptation of moral relativism- all snipers bad. Based on Moore’s twisted moral universe, John Allen Muhammad- the “DC Sniper,” who arbitrarily killed ten people back in 2002, is morally equivalent to Chris Kyle who killed Islamic jihadi terrorists before they could kill members of the US military or innocent Iraqi civilians.

Second, from what I’ve seen and read, snipers will shoot a target anywhere they have a clean shot, moron.

Just to be clear, Moore thinks snipers- and by extension, members of the military in general- are cowards who volunteer themselves to be put in harms way to fight for the very freedoms he takes for granted. See how easy and tasteless it is for Moore to passive-aggressively insult a deceased yet celebrated soldier from the comfort, luxury and security that he has, knowing a) that Kyle can’t defend himself; and b) this sack of bacon fat doesn’t have the testicles to offer his condescending insults directly to the face of any sniper in- or member of- the US military.

But Kyle is the coward. Riiiiiiight. Michael Moore is bad joke.

Moore is a well-known Hollywood progressive who advocates for socialism and “economic justice.” Moore has a history of attacking the military, corporations and the wealthy while embracing totalitarian regimes around the world, including Cuba. While he’s never been in the military, he and his company have made tens of millions of dollars through his films.

His recent divorce exposed his lavish lifestyle, including a huge mansion in Traverse City, Michigan, which exposed him to charges of hypocrisy.

Nope. Chris Kyle isn’t the coward y any stretch; Michael Moore is.

A. Big. Fat. Lying. Pathetic. Hypocritical. Coward.

Moore isn’t alone in his stupidity- he has company. Man-boy Seth Rogan who grabbed attention last month when his horrible movie “The Interview” was canceled by Sony after receiving cyber threats to pull the movie, chimed in to offer his thoughts regarding the hit movie as well.

On Twitter, Seth said-

Ahhh. Ok. The forever juvenile has compared ‘American Sniper’ to Nazi propaganda. According to the Daily Caller

The movie to which Rogen referred is the fake “Nation’s Pride,” the Nazi propaganda movie that draws Hitler, Joseph Goebbels, and other Nazi high command leaders to the theater where they are slaughtered in Quentin Tarantino’s masterpiece.

It’s too bad that Rogen couldn’t have voiced his thoughtless opinion last month prior to millions of people spending good money to support him and his bad film. Both he and Moore are obviously free to say what they want, regardless of how moronic it is. The irony is that they intentionally attack those who volunteer to defend the security and right for them to be as stupid as they want to be.

These two are emblematic of a large portion of Hollywood with their hollow chests, inverted morality and lack of self-awareness.

No Charges For NYPD-Involved Choking of Eric Garner

The NYPD officer who was caught on video applying what many saw as an “illegal” or an “excessive” chokehold that caused the death of Eric Garner, will not be charged with his death.

A Staten Island grand jury dismissed all charges against Officer Daniel Pantaleo, meaning he won’t face indictment for the death of Garner.

From the NY Post

The blockbuster decision capped weeks of investigation by the special grand jury, which was empaneled in September specifically to review evidence in Garner’s racially charged death.

It was unclear exactly what charges prosecutors asked the grand jury to consider filing, or how the vote went.

Under New York law, an indictment must be agreed upon by at least 12 members of a grand jury, which can have up to 23 members.”

Cellphone video captured the officer-involved altercation with Garner which began after he was confronted for illegally selling cigarettes.  In the video, you can see and hear Garner pleading with the officers saying he couldn’t breathe as the officers restrained and cuffed him.

Garner’s death was ruled a homicide by the Medical Examiner’s Office, saying he died from a “compression of neck (chokehold), compression of chest and prone positioning during physical restraint by police.”

Other reports are saying that Garner suffered a heart attack.

Garner’s family has filed a $75 million wrongful death suit against the city of New York, and none other than Al Sharpton is a Garner-family advisor.

This will surely add more ammunition to the demagogued narrative that racist, out-of-control cops are preying on innocent black men, fueling the “black lives matter” mentality.  I will say- this case, rather than the Michael brown case, is much more disturbing and qualifying of restrained outrage regarding how police apprehend and restrain offenders- regardless of their color.

That said, because of the intentionally-inflamed rhetoric that we’ve heard over the past several months where racial agitators and defenders of Michael Brown elevated him to being a martyr and canonized him as a saint, a significant amount of moral authority regarding questionable officer involvement with blacks has been forfeited. Though I still believe that the issue of black criminality- largely at the expense of black victims- is much more of a pressing concern that warrants more focus than confrontations between police officers and (potential) black offenders, this present case is much more favorable to the so-called ‘black lives matter’ social campaign.

Because the grievance industries (aided by media outlets) intentionally inflamed tensions, intentionally ignored and disregarded evidence in the Brown case that clearly demonstrated Brown’s actions contributed to his own death- in addition to repeating and gesturing, the ‘hands up, don’t shoot’ fairy tale, the hearts and minds of many Americans might be closed to the potentially legitimate cries of injustice this time around.

That’s why we’re taught from an early age never to cry wolf.

Though it is sad that Eric Garner lost his life, the reality is had he- and Michael Brown- not resisted arrest (Garner yelled ‘this stops today’ when officers approached), both men would be alive today. That’s the narrative that needs more attention: don’t resist arrest; live to talk about it.

The Stigma of Bad Black Behavior Hurts our Race

By Derryck Green

Rather than waiting until specifics about the Michael Brown case are known — such as autopsy results, detailed officer reports, toxicology or other details regarding his death — some Ferguson residents, Brown supporters and various hangers-on decided to act.

Learning nothing from the Trayvon Martin case, people took to the street with demands for “justice” and homemade protest signs. They were aided by a media seemingly excited about exploiting the narrative that Brown’s death was at the hands of a brutal and possibly racist cop in a militarized police force that cares little about black residents.

Ensuing nights after the shooting brought out the worst in people — including looting and burning businesses, vandalizing property and the likes of Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson seeking to “organize” the masses.

Regardless of one’s feelings about the Brown case, there’s a need for honest reflection about the behavior of people assembling in Ferguson, Missouri.

The self-destructive and self-defeating behavior on display in Ferguson was inexcusable. It’s a disservice to residents because it takes a sympathetic, accommodating view of the anti-social, regressive behaviors present during the riots, most of which were, unfortunately, committed by blacks.

Sympathizing with looting, vandalizing, personal violence and confrontation with law enforcement essentially excuses it, which emboldens perpetrators. Furthermore, this bad behavior is at the expense of law-abiding local residents whose lives were disrupted by this turmoil — the majority of whom are black.

Aside from being disgraceful, this dysfunction has severe economic consequences for the residents of Ferguson. While vandals reveled in self-created chaos, they made the case that opening businesses there may not be worth the risk.

All this stems from moral decay. There is a noticeable absence of moral values and ethical virtues in the nation as a whole these days, but it seems more concentrated in the inner cities, which are disproportionately populated by blacks. Churches have flunked their mission. The optics are devastating as the stigma associated with these incidents of violence and unrest are projected onto blacks as a whole, unfairly defining an entire race by the misdeeds of a relative few.

Whether the disruptive behaviors witnessed in Ferguson are from locals or self-seeking opportunists from other areas is really of no consequence. Regardless of race, class or residency, people shouldn’t hesitate to condemn bad behavior. But it seems too many whites won’t publicly condemn this condemnable behavior, even though they may earnestly desire to do so. Whites appear culturally conditioned these days to withhold honest commentary and astute observations on race, particularly about blacks. Common sense has been labeled “racist” by the racial grievance industry.

Compounding the problem is that the stigmas of these disgraceful activities and inverted morality behind them are projected onto blacks as a whole and are extremely difficult to overcome. To use a sports metaphor, blacks swallowed their whistle. We’ve forfeited our obligation of self-policing and society seems far too hesitant to publicly confront the conduct undermining the reputation of a race. This stunts our socio-economic progress.

A “soft bigotry of low expectations” is created when we refuse to denounce disruptive behaviors within our own community.

We too often excuse and remove the stigma of detrimental behavior, minimizing the shame that once accompanied dysfunctional, destructive activity. Counterproductive behavior is justified as the legacy of slavery and discrimination. We act as if we are a standard unto ourselves, separate and unaccountable from what society should expect — and actually demands — from other races.

Excusing inexcusable behavior has sullied our reputation and proved to many that we’ve spent our currency as a moral, cultural and political force. The bar is set so low that many aren’t shocked by what happened in Ferguson (or in Chicago, Detroit or other places).

And on the occasions bad behavior is called out, the predictable and reflexive reaction is that such critique is racist.  Once again, the behaviors of a disproportionate few define blacks as a whole. The radicals perpetuate the very stereotypes that make them cringe.

Blacks aren’t done any favors when behaviors we’ve seen in Ferguson are excused by white enablers or black defenders. Racial solidarity and racial empathy unfortunately seem more important to these people than dealing with the overwhelming responsibility of overcoming the stigma associated with undistinguished behavior.

Blacks have a moral obligation to reclaim values and dignity worthy of respect and admiration.  It is likewise incumbent upon blacks, particularly the black middle class, to forthrightly and aggressively condemn attitudes and behaviors that thwart our progress and impugn our collective character.

This begins with public and consistent condemnation of these stigma-creating behaviors.
