Sean Hannity and his guests love how American Sniper Chris Kyle defended Americans' freedom of speech. Just don’t say something they don’t like!
Hannity spent so much time obsessing about Michael Moore during an hour-long special on American Sniper Friday, you could have easily come away thinking he was in it.
In fact, the only “role” Moore played was in a tweet responding to the movie, “My uncle killed by sniper in WW2. We were taught snipers were cowards. Will shoot u in the back. Snipers aren’t heroes. And invaders r worse.”
Moore wasn’t the only person Hannity vilified for having the nerve to express a negative opinion about American Sniper. Seth Rogen was singled out, too. In addition, Hannity played a montage of some of his usual targets. This one, by the way, included an unidentified Robert Greenwald, director and producer of Outfoxed: Rupert Murdoch’s war on journalism (for which yours truly served as a researcher).
Hannity’s guests were two friends of Kyle’s: retired Navy SEAL Jason Redman and retired Army Ranger Sean Parnell.
Redman claimed to stand for freedom of speech with the reasonable proviso that he would counteract the “inflammatory” comments of the critics.
REDMAN: The reality is, I fought for freedom, Chris fought for freedom, Sean fought for freedom. Every American veteran out there fought for the freedom for people to say whatever they want to say. But here’s the deal: it’s not freedom from opinion and it’s not freedom from people who are going to stand up and disagree with what you said.
Both Michael Moore and Seth Rogen made inflammatory comments that disrespected the service of a great American, a great sniper, a great father. Everything that Chris ever did – and in turn, it directly reflected upon the American military. And that’s why I’m so adamant about stepping up and saying, “Hey, you can say what you want but I’m gonna be there to counteract it.”
Parnell, however, suggested that free speech is dangerous.
PARNELL: American Sniper is not a pro war film, it’s a pro warrior film and every time the – you know, journalists or some of these coddled Hollywood types come out and criticize the film or criticize Chris or the warrior’s journey home, it just makes it more difficult for guys that have served in combat to actually come home and live a normal life because it makes it more difficult for them to talk about their experience without being criticized for it.
Hannity deliberately fanned the flames: “I think I’d be pretty angry as a warrior that put my life on the line for as long as he did or as long as you guys did, only to get this treatment when you get back," Hannity said. And,“Interesting that Michael Moore doesn’t come on TV and go head to head with one of you guys and defend those comments. I’d like to see that debate and he’s welcome here any time if he wants to debate either one or both of you"
Redman replied, “You know, Sean, anybody that knew Chris knew that he was somebody that when he was out and about, he loved to practice his choke out skills. So all the people that know Chris are gonna laugh at this (Hannity was already laughing). So I guarantee you, if Chris was still walking around today and he was with Michael Moore, he would be glad to put Michael Moore to sleep.”
Hannity said, “Uhh, it would probably have taken him about nine seconds. It wouldn’t take that long. If he could get his arm around his neck.”
Oh and speaking of cowardice, today marks 2104 days or 5 years, 9 months, 3 days since Hannity promised to undergo waterboarding for charity.
Watch Hannity and his pals yuk it up about choking out someone below, from the January 23 Hannity. Underneath that is a mashup I made of Hannity obsessing about Moore throughout that show. Just for having the nerve to use that free speech the Great American Waterboard Weasel supposedly champions.
Reason 1-Ruthless Rupy, the third-rate The American Work Place Bully executives, producers and aging mouthpieces like Stage Actor Hannocchio like Clint Eastwood. Ever since the “empty chair” jab against President Obama at the last Republican convention, these cafeteria Catholic clowns worship the ground Eastwood walks on. In case you didn’t know, Eastwood’s film is American Sniper.
Reason 2-These fools are putting public pressure on The Academy members in voting for American Sniper for Best Picture than Selma. Why?
Reason 3-Oprah Winfrey is a huge supporter of President Obama, and the Foxies don’t want her film, Selma to win Best Picture (for political reasons, of course).
The Stop Hannity Express STRONGLY encourages all to the masses to alert and inform the global community through social media and YouTube.
If Selma was released through 21st Century Fox the Foxies and part-time family man Hannocchio would have kept their mouths shut. Ruthless Rupert does not tolerate any of his employees to publicly bad mouth his company’s projects, or they face suspension and/or termination.
American Sniper is not a Fox film. However, the Foxies will promote it-with the blessing of Ruthless-if the film’s rival is a person associated with President Obama, a “leftist” or fits their “red, white and blue” narrative that targets their conservative, hard-of-hearing 60+ viewers-hear that advertising agencies?
These useless producers are responsible for the endless stories of American Sniper. Their instructions are sent out, via internal memos, e-mails and meetings with the aging mouthpieces.
NOTE TO MASSES
A former Fox “News” employee killed himself today in front of this hideous skyscraper.
Here is an interested video.
NOTE TO HANNITY
We can’t wait to see a film on your troubled life. Based on your background it would have to be edited to a “R” rating instead of “NC-17.”
NOTE TO AMERICAN WORK PLACE BULLY THIRD RATE PRODUCERS
You are typical and predictable. If this film was produced by Oprah Winfrey you wouldn’t give it the time of day, or free publicity, you cafeteria Catholic bullies.
No, Jason, you did NOT. Chris did not. Sean did not.
From what I’ve been able to determine of his biography, Redman served from 1992 to 2013. During that time, he NEVER fought for “freedom.” The US was never in a conflict during his service in which America’s “freedom” was ever at risk. And pretty much the same applies to Chris Kyle and Sean Parnell.
NOTHING that any of them did was the result of an attack or lessening of America’s “freedom.” And what Kyle did as a sniper in Iraq and Afghanistan did absolutely nothing to advance the cause of “freedom”—not America’s, not Iraq’s, not Afghanistan’s.
The US is no freer today from their service than it was before they joined the military. And Iraq and Afghanistan? If you believe either country is truly “freer” today than they were in 2001, then you’ve fallen for FoxNoise’s bullcrap (and you don’t deserve to have access to the voting booth).
