Posted on 02/27/2012 7:01:27 PM PST by Nachum
Star of TVs 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.
He’s not fit to clean mud out a SEAL’s boot tread.
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.
Dax is a NAZI.
Never heard of Dax Shepard....Praise God.
That one on the left looks way more orderly. Rather pleasantly so.
What a prick. What is the show this asswipe is on? I’ll be sure to miss it.
Better yet, who are the sponsors?
Wasn’t he in a Superman Comic?
I have seen some movies that he happened to be in. I will now make a conscious effort to NOT pay to see anything with him in it.
AND DAT’S DUH FACTS
Who, by the way, is not fit to pooper scoop after any Navy Seal’s dog.
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.
Thank G-d our nation’s soldier never had to depend on this actor-hole when the chips were down.
A 0-something pre-teen
I don’t wish that smartass any bad luck; but if he had some I wouldn’t mind hearing about it!/S
It was his boyfriends turn to pick the movie.
LOL, I had to click on the thread to see who the "actor" was and if I ever heard of him.
I haven't. Surprise, surprise, it's a nobody.
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.
My bet is he said it to impress his Hollywierd buddies...to be one of the gang and have them OOhh and AAhh over his liberal coolness and Obama-like manner...This guy couldn’t s**t his way out of a paper bag...
He even looks DUMB.
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 liked him in “Idiocracy”. Looks like that was a casting home-run.
Hitler likely would have offed him.
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.
Excellent. When our Superheroes loved our country. Magnificent.
Doesn’t matter, have not watched anything with those peckersniffers in it, and likely never will......Same with that Brad Spit twit........
Best movie I have seen in years. I will see it. Again this week.
Saw it today.
Proves we dont need Hollywood to make a great movie anymore.
That is a really good thing.
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.
Dax is wiener drippings..
He says he has been to the Middle East to entertain the troops including the SEALS.....I wonder if true.
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.
“Here’s the boy genius...”
How fitting, the Dork on Parenthood who “plays” a stoned Musician whom knocks up a Stripper only to find out five years later he is a Dad.
"Who Wants to Send a Message to Germany?"
“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.
@Travesham I Loved #ActOfValor. Couldn’t wait to see it. Just because it’s good doesn’t mean it’s not propaganda.
He's about as smart as the lawyer he portrayed in Idiocracy.
Well at least he is being used to advertise the movie. I hadn’t heard of it, watch very few movies, but now might see this one.
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.
