Last year, liberals were outraged when Chris Kyle’s biopic American Sniper was named as the highest grossing movie of 2014.
Directed by Clint Eastwood, the film celebrates an American hero who gave his life for our country. While this sounds like someone who should be remembered fondly by all Americans, liberals do not agree. They see Kyle as an anti-Muslim killer, and refuse to look at him any differently.
According to The Political Insider, American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee officially accused the movie of inflaming anti-Islam sentiments in the U.S. They demanded that Eastwood and the film’s star Bradley Cooper publicly apologize for their roles in the movie, and to speak out against it.
In a letter to Eastwood and Cooper, the group wrote that “the ADC takes these threats seriously and is reaching out to you in an effort to help reduce the hateful rhetoric. It is our opinion that you could play a significant role in assisting us in alleviating the danger we are facing.”
Q Political offered the perfect response to this:
“It is irrational to hold American Sniper responsible for the negative perception of Islam in America when we have seen infinite acts of Islamic terrorism over the years prior to and since the film. The emotional movie enlightened viewers of all diversities and anti-Islam sentiments would still be in existence if it never debuted.
Sorry ADC, but your request is fundamentally flawed. Thanks Clint Eastwood and Bradley Cooper for staying true to the red, white, and blue!”
This couldn’t be more true. Islam’s PR problem wasn’t caused by this movie, it was caused by terrorists killing millions of people all over the world in the name of Allah. Maybe the ADC should focus on protesting against terrorism, instead of trying to destroy a patriotic movie.
