On Monday, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin blasted Hollywood liberals for denigrating the late Chris Kyle after American Sniper shattered records at the box office over the weekend.
Left-wingers like Seth Rogan have compared American Sniper to Nazi propaganda and called Kyle a “coward” and a “killer.” Left-wing media outlets have been spreading around a Guardian piece that denigrated Kyle as a “hate-filled killer” who was not a “hero.”
Referring to Kyle as a “true American hero,” Palin ripped “Hollywood leftists” who caress “shiny plastic trophies” while “spitting on the graves of freedom fighters who allow you to do what you do” for not being “fit to shine Chris Kyle’s combat boots”:
God bless our troops, especially our snipers.
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.
Thank you Bradley Cooper and Clint Eastwood for respecting the United States Military.
Palin has previously defended Kyle and his family on numerous occasions. She slammed “jackass” Jesse Ventura for shaking down Kyle’s widow. Palin attended Kyle’s funeral at Cowboys Stadium, and she blistered President Barack Obama for not paying “his respects” with a gesture of respect to the fallen hero who “sacrificed so much to keep him and all of us safe.”
Palin first met Kyle in Pella, Iowa in 2011 during the premiere of Stephen K. Bannon’s Undefeated movie. Kyle and Palin’s husband, Todd, later starred in the Stars Earn Stripes reality show. Todd Palin honored Kyle’s memory in the 2013 Iron Dog race with a decal and donated his winnings to the Chris Kyle Memorial Fund.
