Fox’s Neil Cavuto argued that ISIS’ horrific execution of a Jordanian pilot by burning him to death somehow validated the American Sniper film and its real life protagonist Chris Kyle and discredited Michael Moore and President Obama.
In his Common Sense segment today, Neil Cavuto joined Fox’s American Sniper lovefest and liberal/Michael Moore/President Obama bashfest with the following:
Suddenly, American Sniper doesn’t look so evil does it? Navy SEAL Chris Kyle doesn’t seem so crazy does he? The folks who’ve flocked to that movie suddenly don’t look so nutty do they?
Where’s Michael Moore burning up the social media? He’s been shutting up. Since a different burning started preoccupying the social media.
It’s a pity real life has to intrude on those with a very different take on reality. Or those who ignore that reality. The reality of terror and how to respond. And what happens when you ignore that terror and do not respond. Or you take your time to respond. Or you hem and haw about how you respond. Or you worry over who you offend when you do respond.
Sometimes, sometimes it takes a brutality so real that Hollywood couldn’t write the script, for some in Hollywood to show the better part of valor and to shut the hell up.
Maybe it’s at such a time that reality sets in and they, like us, try and fathom what sets some extremists off.
Even if they fail to call them “extremists,” even if they still fail to call them anything at all. Even if they still fail to see evil for what it is. Or attach any good to what guys like Chris Kyle were and are. They cannot help but see an American sniper in the very real world in which he lived. They won’t admit it, I’m not holding my breath waiting for them to say it, but they cannot deny it.
If you are going to call Kyle a coward so you can ignite a controversy, how do you describe masked killers who’d happily ignite a human being in a cage? Those on the left could do worse than admit that they pulled a trigger too soon. Or what they said about a very real hero was too much. It would be nice to hear them confess what they said was devastating. For now, all we’ve got is their silence. And that my friend, that silence, is deafening.”
That was followed by a video montage of presumably the real-life Chris Kyle, along with other American soldiers and several stills of military caskets.
Suggesting that if you love the troops (and, by extension, America), you would love Chris Kyle, hate Michael Moore, and hate President Obama.
