American patriot and "American Sniper" author Chis Kyle: Above.
    Acclaimed octogenarian film director /actor Clint Eastwood, and rising film star Bradley Cooper, who produced "American Sniper", may just have a monetary, and critically acclaimed hit on their hands with the Chris Kyle biopic that each are so powerfully responsible for. Early indications predict that the film will do extremely well at the box office overall, as it scored a record for a January opening night, making 30.5 million dollars in United States revenues alone.

    This Friday night was also a rare Boy's night out for myself, my son, and BCN's film reviewer Wyatt Sanderman Day, so what do you reckon we did? If you answered that we "boys" had a bite to eat out, and then attended the opening night, outside of limited release, of the Iraq War film, "American Sniper", you would be right. A film review from Wyatt is forthcoming.

    The true account of Chris Kyle's military existence as a Navy SEAL, and America's most lethal sniper, played out before our collective eyes, provoking a visceral response from us, and the rather large audience at the 7:05 pm show here in Washington, North Carolina. As we all filed out of the Washington theater in hushed silence, I well understood why the film has drawn the ire of pacifist Liberals, who have roundly denounced American hero, Chris Kyle, even in death, as a 'sociopathic murderer of women and children'.

    I mean, the man was good at what he did, protecting United States Marines; however, what sets Chris Kyle apart from other 'sociopathic murderers', and, as a mere mortal, why devout Liberals, understandably, may have a great difficulty grasping this brand of nanhood: Chris Kyle was a patriot, as imperfect and as grand as any American who has ever lived. Pacifist Liberals just are not equipped with the intellectual tools to understand the pathos of patriots the stature of Chief Petty Officer Kyle, so they offer their scripted indignation as a critique of the man's life, and I get that. I actually know most Liberals better than they know themselves, and I well know that.

    I also get that heroes, like Chris Kyle, have long suffered the ultimate sacrifice to afford unappreciative pacifist Liberals their 1st Amendment freedom to express themselves, no matter how they may publicly ingratiate themselves as those who can never fathom the depth of the essential commitment of a real American Hero. Their heroic commitment is our most powerful tool of freedom, the essential element that has kept this nation stretched and strung together since the French and Indian War, and will bind us still as long as the Chris Kyles of America continue to exist among us. As far as patriotism goes, American pacifist Liberals may be the most fortunate nonparticipants in the history of the world.

    I'm looking forward to Wyatt's estimable review of this fine film.

Understanding that many strident Liberals have an abject repulsion to the biopic American Sniper: What should be one's well considered reaction to some of their explicit speech?
74.71%   Chris Kyle was a true American hero, and Liberals should measure their harsh words.
2.94%   Chris Kyle was a murderer of women and children, which he did to satisfy his profound racism.

"American Sniper" has dropped from No. 1 to No. 2, surrendering its to box office position to something about square sponges. I won't be reviewing that film ... ever.

Still the Chris Kyle biopic has amassed a U.S. box office of $282,265,000.00, and now, as it is released worldwide, another $79,000,000.00 outside the U.S., for a total of $361,265,000.00

I pray the film does not instruct the Jihadis how to find the path to become real men. Then again, a film about Chris Kyle might teach Islamist murderers how to not murder innocent women and children for sport and ambition.

To date, "American Sniper" has made 242.2 million in domestic box office alone, and the film did it in one of the slowest months of the year.

Congratulations to Director Clint Eastwood and Actor /Producer Bradley Cooper for a job well done.

Interesting.

Just now, on CNBC, not a liberal, but certainly not a conservative channel, I caught a glimpse and the gist of a political consultant discussing something called '"American Sniper" effect'.

What it boiled down to was that this next president will need to actually understand foreign policy, and be willing to protect our people, because there is a ground swell of Americans are realizing that Barack Hussein is just no up to the job.

I remind you: This was not FOX News but CNBC. It is no wonder that so many ardent Liberals are making some egregiously stupid comments about an American Hero.

The best thing for Liberals to do right now is take responsibility for their naive understanding of world history, and take the credit or the blame for what is about to happen next, which I see with abject clear vision.

And remember, it all stated with Barack Hussein's 2009 Apology Tour.

Stan~~~did you read the Matthew 23 passage yet from Jesus?

I am concerned with the growing division between folks even through the Conservatives won the mid-terms. Would it not be far wise to put up the swords and beat the spears into plow shares?

Just asking . . .

It always astounds me as to why Liberals take a political bent on movies that might be construed, by other Liberals, as overly patriotic.

It really is not paying off for them politically with the real people of America.

Good movies that have a timeless message should be just that. Liberals should drop the liberal politics. I even remember when some Liberals had a conniption fit over "Forrest Gump" ... "Forrest Gump".

You have every right to be encouraged.
Liberals that think everything is free will soon determine just how dramatic the mistake they have made. Nothing is free, most of all FREEdom.Someone paid for that and paid dearly. Too bad the only 'thank you' will come from those that understand this. All others will just scream and holler for help and a handout when they are threatened with losing their cell phone service or Star Bucks closes. Pitiful poor uniformed masses.
