Actor Compares Pro-Navy SEAL Movie 'Act of Valor' to Hitler Propaganda Film
Newsbusters ^ | 2/27/12 | Geoffrey Dickens

Posted on 02/27/2012 7:01:27 PM PST by Nachum

Star of TV’s Parenthood, Dax Shepard, compared the pro-U.S. military film that stars actual Navy SEALs, Act of Valor to Adolf Hitler's Triumph of the Will. On his Twitter feed the one time Ashton Kutcher prank boy from Punk'd wrote: "Saw 'Triumph of the Will' tonight, oh wait, I mean 'Act of Valor' great action." Apparently the reaction to Shepard's obnoxious tweet, comparing this week's #1 movie starring active duty Navy Seals to a Nazi propaganda movie was immediate, as he attempted to walk back his comments. Shepard lamely claimed he was: "not comparing

That’s it idiot...keep insulting your audience!

I hope these POS end up hurting their very livelyhood by insulting a portion of their potential viewing audiences. I hope these people take it in the pocketbook.

Typical lefty asshat whose comment would be applauded by those he associates with in Hollywood, but since he got caught he can't squirm fast enough at this point.

I don’t recall any Acts of Valor portrayed in the Nazi propaganda film, Triumph of The Will. It was all Nazi Party gatherings and speeches, Hitler photo ops and SA,SS and Wehrmacht parade formations. There was no war footage (it was made in ‘34 I think, 5 years before the actual start of WWII.) These jackasses don’t know propaganda unless it bit ‘em in their brains, I mean their asses if they think Acts of Valor was propaganda. What these morons are really saying is anything that is patriotic or shows the pride of our brave men and women in the service risking their lives for our safety and way of life is propaganda. As far as I’m concerned, if they don’t like it, then they can go enjoy life where propaganda really exists, communist china, north korea or cuba, or just about any islamic country.

Scum like this are happy to live under the blanket these brave men provide. The freedom of speech they have is also compliments of the very men they mock.

When are people going to wake up and see idiots like this for what they are....losers and lazy scumbags that depend on you for the money in your wallet. I don’t watch his stupid show nor do I waste my money by spending it to go see their movies and make them rich. Down with hollywood and all it stands for.

God bless our military and this country.

Praise God. I must live a “severely” sheltered life.

I didn’t see the movie sgtyork named and I’ve never heard of this idiot, and like you, I will make certain to avoid any films he’s in and I most certainly won’t watch his silly, inane TV series, or whatever he’s in.

He’s on the show Parenthood..plays a character named Crosby, a mediocre actor at best....leftover 60’s hippie, very unattractive.

He dated Kate Hudson but she got wise and ditched him.

To paraphrase Sir Winston, or possibly Orwell,

“We (Dak Shephard & his Hollywood plaything du jour) sleep soundly in our bed because rough men (Navy Seals & others) stand ready in the night to visit violence on those who would do us harm.” – Winston Churchill

Walking out of the theater tonight my friends & I were commenting that all of Congress and the MSM talking heads & management should be forced to watch the movie in the company of SEALs & their families.

After they finished watching (including ALL of the credits and dedication), Congress & the MSM would have sit through a question and answer session wherein THEY would answer to the SEALS & families.

Put the whole thing on CSPAN, or better yet, Pay Per View, with the proceeds going to the SEAL widows & orphans.

I never heard of this loser actor, but I can tell you this much.....if California was under attack during a major war, he would be on his knees begging the Navy Seals to save his pathetic life.

That’s why he went to see it, so he could be snarky about it. Maybe didn’t even see it.

A lot of people did though. It was a big box office success.

Very unattractive wanna-be. He and his lefty friend “actors” are not like the Jimmy Stewart, John Wayne-types. They never did a decent thing in their life and lucked into their day job preforming some homosexual favors since those Hollywood producers who raped the Coreys are STILL NOT ARRESTED and operating in Hollywood.

No character whatsoever in most of Hollywood who only idolize themselves—narcissists—and sell their souls for plumb roles and promote their dysfunctional behaviors on children-—trying to normalize the abhorrent.

He must be SOOOO jealous of the real men.

“Triumph of the Will” was an astonishingly well done piece of propaganda or cinema too.

I did notice one thing interesting. When Hitler was talking to the masses, he came across as a very decent person with good goals for the German People.

Then they showed him addressing his followers in a closed auditorium and he came across as a lot more hard edged.

Leni Riefenstahl was not a Nazi, she was simply hired to make the film.

Dax Shepard, compared the pro-U.S. military film that stars actual Navy SEALs, Act of Valor to Adolf Hitler's Triumph of the Will...

He's about as smart as the lawyer he portrayed in Idiocracy.

I guess this idiot doesn’t relalize that “right wingers” USED to go to movies, etc.! Or, at least, this one did. Now I can’t stand the thought of putting money in the pockets of people who hate me.

I absolutely despise these people.

A lot of right-wingers are showing me that sense of humor that they are so famous for.
