It has been a major week for ‘American Sniper’, which has been a box-office smash hit. Apparently, the Hollywood left can’t disguise their dislike of our troops when they see the movie, which is why so many negative comments have been shared by Seth Rogen and Michael Moore. And conservatives, such as Sarah Palin, Ted Nugent, and the movie’s director Clint Eastwood have defended the legacy of patriot Chris Kyle.

Famous Hollywood Actor Kevin Costner joined the discussion while appearing as a guest on Laura Ingrahm‘s radio show, and explained to Michael Moore just why he’s wrong:

I’ve had to remark on it. I get hit going down this red carpet and I’m thinking, ‘Jesus Christ, I’m not Solomon,’ you know?

But I did take exception to what Michael Moore said. I mean, we practically invented the sniper in the Revolutionary War when we couldn’t take on, we couldn’t hold back the British. And that was the formation, if you look at historically about snipers. I think coward is just too strong of a word. And I think he oughta be smart enough to take it back, brave enough to take it back.

Costner doesn’t seem to know that Moore made the comments on Twitter – So he had plenty of time to think about his comments before posting. However, Costner’s advice is spot on:

When you’re the victim of something, yeah, you can have a perspective. But I think when you get that microphone and you’re a little glib and a little fast, you end up saying stuff like that. And he would have trouble saying that to a roomful of men that go out as young guys, boys, and they’re assigned things because of a skill set, and then they go out and they do it the best they can. So, I didn’t like it.

Costner’s wording is cautious and diplomatic. But there’s no doubt that Kevin Costner is an American patriot who is willing to defend Chris Kyle and our brave Navy SEALs. They are anything BUT cowards.

Do you agree with Costner? Please leave us a comment and tell us what you think.
