Country Stars Align Against Rogen and Moore: If You Don’t Like America, Leave

Country music singer Craig Morgan, who served ten years in the U.S. Army before he became a singer, turned to Facebook Monday to defend the late Chris Kyle against his critics in Hollywood.

Actor Seth Rogen’s now “explained” statement comparing Clint Eastwood’s American Sniper to a nazi propaganda film didn’t resonate well with millions of Americans, Morgan included.

“Seth Rogen you don’t know me nor did you know Chris Kyle (who was a Great American)” Morgan wrote. “I would be interested to know if you have a relationship with any American who served honorably in its military.”

Rogen said on his Twitter account Sunday: “American Sniper kind of reminds me of the movie that’s showing in the third act of Inglorious Basterds.”

Morgan continued his statement in defense of Chris Kyle, his family, and the United States military:

You are fortunate to enjoy the privilege and freedom of working and living in the United States, and saying whatever you want (regardless of how ignorant the statement) thanks to people like Chris Kyle who serve in the United States military.

Your statement is inaccurate and insensitive to Chris and his family. I’m sick and tired of people like you running your mouth when you have no idea what it takes for this country to maintain our freedoms.

If you and anyone like you don’t like it, leave.

Oklahoma native Blake Shelton chimed in on social media, only he took aim at Sicko film director Michael Moore, who likened snipers to cowards.

“Sickens me to see celebrities or anybody slam the very people who protect their right to talk s—.. #truecowards,” tweeted Shelton.

He added, “Proud to support our military..Period.”

Charlie Daniels also had a message for Moore. In a series of tweets, he said:

Country music and patriotism often go hand in hand, so it’s no surprise that these stars have jumped to the front lines to defend their heroes.

American Sniper is now playing in theaters nationwide.
