Cartoon by Bob Gorrell/Creators Syndicate.
LOL!! Great cartoon and so true. The Left has become almost rabid in their hate of this movie. I think it’s because the movie embodies everything the Left hates, God, guns, family and love for country. These are all the things found in abundance in the red states, or as the jerk part of the population calls them, the ” flyover states.” I believe Conservatives have been the main driving force in making this movie a box office hit; we’re sending a loud message to the Left through it.
It always requires bravery or stupidity to put yourself in situations where you may be killed, but this fact doesn’t necessarily justify the action. In other words, it is always brave to defend your brothers and sisters in arms with your life, but what if they are killing innocent people and occupying a foreign country in a misguided belief they are making the world safe for democracy? American Sniper seems to be glorifying the war effort, and we have to be careful of letting ourselves be emotionally manipulated into consenting or cheering on an ever escalating military presence abroad. It… Read more »
If they could get past their hate for Bush, why we went to Iraq (which can be debated forever), the concept of war and an organized military complex, they’d see this movie is about the effects of war on Chris and his family. We can’t change history. We went to Iraq. And we never left despite what Obama said. There has always been troops and/or contractors there, and soldiers from Bragg deployed there last week. Never hear the left bashing Obama for continuing the misguided war. Guess it’s easier to bash Bush and American Sniper. As for this movie being… Read more »
Tsk tsk! silly Children. I served (what I thought was ) my country proudly. My military years taught me “everything about the US is a lie. We are not fighting to protect civilians but for the free reign of global banks and corporations. I do not regret serving in the military for 4 years including a deluxe Tonkin Gulf Yacht Club cruise. It was a major growing event in my life as well as a painful one. The moment the planes hit WTC on 911 I knew that it was a false flag operation. Everyone else was running around waving… Read more »
Free reign of global banks and corporations? You mean like Georg Soros and various rich liberal cronies who donate heavily to the DNC and progressive causes? (Ask Bill Clinton about the island with all those underage girls his buddy Jeffrey Epstein had, too.) They just feel America should be like “the rest of the world” (you know, Argentina) where the 1% (them) really does own everything, that’s all. They’re UN-loving, no-sense progressive loons.
Art, thank you for your service.My Father served in Korea. I have always had great respect for those that serve. They know why they serve. I know why they serve. Cause they have bigger brass balls then 99% of this country. God, Country. and Corps is no meaningless saying. Now on the other hand after blogging 6 yrs I’d have to agree there are some people getting rich off these wars. But do not ever take it upon your self to question the brave men and women fighting these savage bastards, Understand. I too wear a tinfoil hat. Comes in… Read more »
Steve you seem like a reasonable man. My problem with war is not that I hate our soldiers; it is precisely the opposite. I think the State expends our good men and women (sometimes the best of us) far too haphazardly. It takes our bravest and sends them to foreign countries and puts them in morally depraved situations (like the scene in American Sniper where he has to shoot a woman and child who are simply defending their own country) from which they may never emotionally recover. https://www.cnn.com/2013/09/21/us/22-veteran-suicides-a-day/ Is this such an unreasonable position for one to stand? After all,… Read more »
This post is so true, Steve! And you ignited a firestorm of comments!
Mike, I am surprised by the number of comments a cartoon has drawn.
