    Political correctness is a disease. It’s a cancerous growth on the posterior of America that continues to grow. One of the prime examples of that is this week’s controversy surrounding the University of Michigan, and it’s screening of American Sniper. Long story short, American Sniper was going to be shown on campus, some Muslims at UofM complained, got a petition going and got the screening canceled. They claimed that the film was “racist” and that it would make students feel “unsafe”. Jeez. Then one girl, one brave girl, named Rachel Jankowski, got a counter-petition going to get the screening back...

    University of Michigan football coach Jim Harbaugh announced on Twitter Wednesday night that his team will hold a screening of “American Sniper” after the school pulled a showing when some students called it “anti-Muslim.” Shortly after coach Harbaugh’s tweet, the University of Michigan reversed course and said their decision to cancel the screening was wrong.

    The University of Michigan canceled a scheduled movie screening of “American Sniper” on Tuesday after nearly 300 students and others complained the film glorifies a “mass killer” and perpetuates anti-Muslim stereotypes. An online petition, titled a “collective letter from Middle Eastern and North African (MENA) and Muslim students on campus,” accused the school of “tolerating dangerous anti-Muslim and anti-MENA propaganda” by showing the Chris Kyle biopic, The College Fix reported. “The movie American Sniper not only tolerates but promotes anti-Muslim and anti-MENA rhetoric and sympathizes with a mass killer,” the letter reads. “Chris Kyle was a racist who took a...

    The Center for Campus Involvement announced Tuesday afternoon they would cancel a planned showing of “American Sniper” at UMix following a student petition over the depiction of certain communities in the film. In a statement posted on by Facebook CCI, which runs UMix, the organization said the choice was made in response to concerns raised by students about the film in the petition. “Student reactions have clearly articulated that this is neither the venue nor the time to show this movie,” the statement read. “We deeply regret causing harm to members of our community, and appreciate the thoughtful feedback provided...

    GOP fundraiser for 'Adopt a Sniper' shut down at college The Associated Press Posted February 3 2005, 2:24 PM EST MILWAUKEE -- Marquette University administrators shut down a table set up by the school's College Republicans this week to take orders for bracelets and other trinkets so money could be raised to buy special equipment for American snipers in Iraq and Afghanistan. Brandon Henak, the group's chairman and a Marquette junior, said the College Republicans chose to promote the "Adopt a Sniper" program based in Pulaski after their request for setting up a general "support the troops" table at the...

    Williams was actually trying to honor a vet in this "lie". But a group of other vets got butthurt that he didn't recognize them instead, and went viral. Most of the "heroes" in these wars since 9/11 are a bunch of self absorbed dysfunctional losers who joined because WalMart turned down their application. And now they're back home living with mom, going to the VA weekly for counseling, and sucking on the gov't tit.

    Ed. Note: The biggest Hollywood box office hit these days is “American Sniper,” the hagiography biopic of Chris Kyle, the sniper from Texas who had 160 confirmed kills and possibly many more in Iraq. Two of the most passionate antiwar activists in the country over the past few years have been Celeste Zappala, of the First United Methodist Church of Germantown and Gold Star Families Speak Out, whose son, Sgt. Sherwood Baker, was killed in Baghdad on April 26, 2004, and Cindy Sheehan, whose son, Army Specialist Casey Sheehan, was killed in Iraq on April 4, 2004. The following article...

    The very term “sniper” seems to stir passionate reactions on the left. The criticism misses the fundamental value that snipers add to the battlefield. Snipers engage individual threats. Rarely, if ever, do their actions cause collateral damage. Snipers may be the most humane of weapons in the military arsenal. The job also takes a huge emotional toll on the man behind the scope. The intimate connection between the shooter and the target can be hard to overcome for even the most emotionally mature warrior. The value of a sniper in warfare is beyond calculation. I witnessed the exceptional performance of...

    Believe it or not, God takes sides. He is in no sense passive but throughout the history of man has shown Himself active in peace and in war. Though liberal hypocrites like Michael Moore slander snipers as murderers and invoke the name of Christ in their propaganda, God is, in fact, the author of “one shot, one kill.” Chris Kyle was no less the instrument of God as the Devil of Ramadi than was an ancient Syrian bowman whose arrow flew by Divine command. (I Kings 21: 29-40) Millenia ago, Ahab, the wicked King of Israel, thought to hide himself...

    When American Sniper went into wide release, I promised to get a thread going, after a few weeks, so that FReepers could have a discussion about the movie, Hollywood, the effect of the story on us as veterans and civilians and whatever else. I hope that most of FR has had a chance to see it. There will probably be spoilers in this discussion.

    Irate liberals, incensed that the film American Sniper is doing well in theaters, have taken to social media to spew their nonsensical garbage. With the film's success, those on the left have been tweeting that the movie is terrible. Some have gone much further, attacking the people who see the film. Hundreds have even gone so far as to say that, if you like American Sniper, you also probably like the Holocaust, are trying to create another Holocaust, or you are a racist, skin-head murderer. Here are just a few examples:

    Over the course of about 5 years between 2004 – 2009, Hollywood produced no fewer than 18 anti-War On Terror box office bombs that defamed our country, our troops, and the righteous cause of the war against Islamic extremism. Every single one of those films bombed. The flop rate was 100%. Even Leftists stayed away in droves. Let me pass along some settled science… The domestic box office gross for all 18 of those films was around $300 million — or a pathetic $16 million each. My guess is that Hollywood lost somewhere around a billion — with “B” —...

    I was looking forward to seeing American Sniper. I took my brown Native high school-aged son to see it. I’m a fan of Clint Eastwood’s acting and directing, and his Sniper is a beautifully shot and directed action packed flick. But after his film, I spent the hour’s drive home explaining to my son why I thought the movie was dangerous and corrosive to the American people. This is a tense war movie that looks great. But just underneath the film’s sexy veneer is a shockingly racist ideology of hate and death that is advanced by the white male sniper...

    On Friday, Sniper stayed No. 1 with a mighty $10 million from 3,885 theaters for a domestic cume of $227.1 million for Warner Bros. and Village Roadshow. Projections show the film earning as much as $32 million for the weekend, pushing its total to just shy of $250 million. This past week, the Oscar-nominated Sniper became the biggest war-themed film of all time, eclipsing the $216.5 million earned by Saving Private Ryan, not accounting for inflation.
  • Dean Cain Remembers American Sniper's Chris Kyle: He'd Prefer Fishing to Oscars

    All the fuss over American Sniper – the Oscar buzz, the red-carpet premieres, the political debates – was not real-life sniper Chris Kyle's thing, says his friend, actor Dean Cain. "It would be absolutely and completely surreal and strange to him," Cain tells PEOPLE. "And he'd probably want to go fishing. I'm not kidding. He'd go horseback riding. He'd want to do anything but be in the public eye." "But," Cain adds, "if it was able to help his fellow servicemen, Chris would be fine." The Navy SEAL and the former Lois and Clark star became tight when they were...
