Chris Hedges has covered war zones from central America to Bosnia to Palestine, and Iraq for most of his life. His take on Chris Kyle isn't flattering:

"Kyle was given the nickname 'Legend.'

"He got a tattoo of a Crusader cross on his arm. 'I wanted everyone to know I was a Christian.

"I had it put in red, for blood.

"I hated the damn savages I’d been fighting,' he wrote. 'I always will.'

"Following a day of sniping, after killing perhaps as many as six people, he would go back to his barracks to spent his time smoking Cuban Romeo y Julieta No. 3 cigars and 'playing video games, watching porn and working out.'

"On leave, something omitted in the movie, he was frequently arrested for drunken bar fights. He dismissed politicians, hated the press and disdained superior officers, exalting only the comradeship of warriors.

"His memoir glorifies white, 'Christian' supremacy and war.

"It is an angry tirade directed against anyone who questions the military’s elite, professional killers."

Chris Kyle: American psychopath.

Another prime example of the classic wolf vs sheep dog vs sheep analogy.

People like Chris Kyle..and almost all other military and police types...are sheep dogs.

Michael Moore types...the sheep.

ISIS and street thugs...the wolves.

Just to clarify you mean to "hell?"

If there was ever a time, previously, where the left was reduced to foaming at the mouth over one man in one movie I'd sure like to be reminded of it.

This shit is getting WAY outta hand

You know, I was all set to reply to the OP, quoted it, type out the first sentence, but what's the point? Wouldn't matter, couldn't make difference, it'd just be time wasted...

Not to mention the fact I'd only be replying to the article as the OP contains no relevant material or input from the OP's author...

You're half right.
"The culture of war idealizes only the warrior. It belittles those who do not exhibit the warrior’s 'manly' virtues. It places a premium on obedience and loyalty. It punishes those who engage in independent thought and demands total conformity."
BAAAAAAAAAAA.

  1. Killing Ragheads for Jesus: American Sniper

Warevangelism

"But there is nothing honorable or heroic about anything Chris Kyle did in Iraq. He defended no American’s freedoms. He didn’t fight “over there” so no American would have to fight “over here.” Soldiers who kill for the state in unjust wars are murderers, not heroes. As Future of Freedom Foundation president and Army veteran Jacob Hornberger recently wrote: “Since the U.S. government was the aggressor in the war on Iraq, that means that no U.S. soldier had the moral authority to kill even one single Iraqi. Every single soldier who killed an Iraqi or who even participated in the enterprise was guilty of murder in a moral, religious, and spiritual sense.”

The left hate men like Kyle. He represents so much of what they hate.

Hes a man who faces evil with a gun...not a hug.

Hes a SEAL..and you cant be that without EARNING it. No affirmative action SEALS. No diversity concerns. No handouts. Its a brutal blind standard. You are either good enough...or not...and you'll have to prove it. They hate that.

Hes a white Christian male...obvious.

Hes the exact polar opposite of a liberal white guilt riddled hipster.

And they hate it.

oh great , a commie opinion piece web site as a source
To which Chris might respond:
"There is no shortage of simpletons whose minds are warped by this belief system.

"We elected one of them, George W. Bush, as president.

"They populate the armed forces and the Christian right.

"They watch Fox News and believe it.

"They have little understanding or curiosity about the world outside their insular communities. They are proud of their ignorance and anti-intellectualism. They prefer drinking beer and watching football to reading a book.

"And when they get into power..."

So? That mindset is what defeats violent enemies. Why would the warrior culture embrace anything else?

Do you think the left would be reacting differently if Kyle was still alive and defending himself on Fox?

So what if he recognized Muslim savages for what they are?

Kyle isn't responsible for 1400 years of enslavement, rape, and murder that is the Muslim legacy, he is responsible for taking a stand against it.
It's for that reason alone he should be commended.

Or if he was a gay atheist Democrat who came out about his hiding it while in the military?

They hate HIM more than they hate what his job was.

I thought maybe you lost your salt.
Full disclosure: I won't be able to see the movie until next month, and I haven't read Kyle's book; however, Chris Hedges has (apparently) done both, and his life experiences are vastly superior to mine as far as first hand experience with snipers are concerned. Hopefully after I've seen Eastwood's latest, I'll have more opinions to share.
