The film is about Navy SEAL Chris Kyle, played by Bradley Cooper, but Moore obviously has no respect for the people that protect him.
Clint Eastwood’s biopic of Navy SEAL Chris Kyle has become a box office hit since its release last week.
Fahrenheit 9/11 director Michael Moore took to Twitter to write, “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”.
The movie follows Kyle’s success, but also reveals the trauma of war that never left him.
In 2009, after four tours of Iraq, Kyle retired. He had not only shot more of the enemy than any other American sniper.
In February 2013, he was shot dead by a soldier suffering from PTSD at a gun range that he was trying to help.
Michael Moore has been outspoken about his views against firearms, claiming our national symbol should be a gun and not an eagle.
Last year Moore wrote on his Facebook page, “The bloodshed is just the latest in what is fast becoming a regular occurrence in the United States, and one that is sure to happen again. We won’t pass the necessary laws, but more importantly we won’t consider why this happens here all the time.
“When the NRA says, ‘Guns don’t kill people – people kill people,’ they’ve got it half-right. Except I would amend it to this: ‘Guns don’t kill people – Americans kill people.’ Enjoy the rest of your day, and rest assured this will all happen again very soon.”
What do you think about Moore’s comments? We are certain he will try and say he wasn’t talking about Chris Kyle, but we aren’t buying it!
