Every American should see American Sniper and it should win Best Picture at the Oscars!!
In a liberal town that often gets it wrong the amazing film ‘American Sniper’ got the Oscar nod for Best Picture, Best Actor and 4 others. Hollywood does have a history of liking a good war movie, at times, and in recent times this is the 3rd war movie (Flags of Our Fathers / Letters From Iwo Jima) directed by Clint Eastwood that has gotten the nod. Eastwood is one of the few in the Hollywood crowd that is forgiven for being a conservative.

Actor Bradley Cooper just received two of the most important reviews for his portrayal of Navy SEAL Chris Kyle in ‘American Sniper’ — the ones from Kyle’s parents and widow.
Wayne Kyle told Sean Hannity on Friday that Cooper did an “outstanding job” portraying his late son in the film and it was clear he “put his heart and soul” into the role. Kyle also said Cooper spent about four months studying the legendary Navy SEAL sniper.
“I called [Cooper] right after we saw the movie and told him how we felt about it and thanked him for what he had done,” Kyle added. “We feel like Bradley did an outstanding job.”
He added, “It’s bittersweet because we are happy and glad that people still are aware of Chris and see the man that he was and still is to us, but yet it hurts that, you know, there’s always that constant reminder. … That pain will probably never go away.”
Kyle’s father previously met with both Eastwood and Cooper and warned them he would “unleash hell” if they did anything to dishonor his son.
The movie has opened to rave reviews and Chris Cooper has said that he hopes this movie and his portrayal of Chris Kyle will open Americans’ eyes to make them realize that we have to take care of our vets. Both Kyle’s parents and widow Teya, whose opinions matter most, gave the film a thumbs up.
In an industry that slants left and often omits films made by or that are about so-called right leaning subjects involving Christians, Jews, religion or patriotism… like Unbroken or Lone Survivor, the insanity of the week was when White House supported race baiter Al Sharpton called a special diversity meeting to complain that the movie Selma didn’t get enough nods (Selma received two nominations including Best Picture) and that no African Americans were nominated this year, implying that the academy was too white, too male and too old. Hello? Silly me, I thought that the Oscars and the arts were about best performances not quotas and I guess a Best Picture nomination was insulting? And what about recent nominations for movies like and actors in 12 Years a Slave, Django UnChained and The Help? Sharpton should get the Oscar for being the greatest opportunist. His move and approach this week would be exactly opposite of what MLK would have wanted or done!
EIB: Redistribute Meryl Streep’s Oscars to Black Actresses!
Liberals want everything else redistributed, so why not this?
Major, major controversy in Hollywood. No black nominees. Al Sharpton on the protest prowl. I have a solution. Meryl Streep has a bunch of ‘em, probably some she doesn’t even deserve to have won. Maybe she could give some of hers away to some black actresses.
Well, why not? It’s what liberalism does. It takes from the people that don’t deserve and gives it to everybody else who does. Whether you earn it or not is irrelevant. Redistribute the Oscars. If we’re gonna redistribute income, if we’re gonna redistribute health care, why not redistribute the Academy Awards?
Al Sharpton, an emergency meeting to discuss the appalling all white Oscar nominees. And the media is all behind this. What has happened to us? Here we have a literal buffoon of a human being, Al Sharpton, a hoaxer, a fraud, a tax cheat, a tax evader, a man who has inspired riots in Harlem. And this man holds positions of prominence in our culture today.
What’s wrong with this picture? Al Sharpton? Talk about a nation of wusses and cowards. I mean, the Sony hack happens and the first thing they do is bend over, grab the ankles, call Al Sharpton. And now Sharpton is raising holy hell about Academy Awards nominees, and they’re listening?
Al Sharpton? I mean, despicable human — forget, you know, making jokes and stuff of usual political commentary, just Al Sharpton, Tawana Brawley hoax, the Freddie’s Fashion Mart deaths and riots, the tax cheats stuff, this buffoonery, and yet he has a position of prominence because he sits at the right hand of Barack Hussein O. He sits at the right hand of Obama, not an accident there, either… Read more HERE
And the Oscar for biggest hypocrite goes to Liam Neeson who complained of there being too many guns In America while starring in a film with guns and having made millions in his career in films with guns. The Irish born actor might also want to listen to what others in the Commonwealth are saying about allowing themselves to be disarmed. The fact that hypocrites and fools like the liberals in Hollywood and Washington think they are smarter than our Founding Fathers who lived under oppression in Britain and paid for our freedoms and liberties with their freedom, their lives and their fortunes should make us dig in and defend our Constitution, especially our second amendment, with our freedom, lives and fortunes. I bet you Marcus Luttrell and Chris Kyle are (were) guns owners and I’m glad!!
