Left wing fury has continued toward the film hit American Sniper, who label it as propaganda. With film director Michael Moore, actors Seth Rogen, and Bill Maher all taking pot shots at the film and it’s main character.

The Academy Award-nominated movie starring Bradley Cooper, is a biopic stars of the life of Navy SEAL Chris Kyle, who was known as the deadliest sniper in U.S. history for making more than 160 confirmed kills.

Kyle was tragically killed in 2013, just a few years after leaving the military, allegedly by a fellow soldier, who he was trying to help struggling with PTSD.

Michael Moore first posted his first tirade on Twitter last week by calling snipers ‘cowards’. Then seemed to have backtracked, however, now he has continued his angry diatribe against both the movie and the Iraq War.

On Saturday, Moore spoke out yet again about the movie, using theology to argue that his stance on snipers was right.

While posing the question, ‘What would Jesus Do?’ Moore answered, “he wouldn’t put any soldiers lives in harm’s way in the first place because he wouldn’t have sent them to Iraq”.

He continued saying, “Instead of being a sniper to protect our troops, I tried to save their lives by stopping Bush from sending them to their deaths in Iraq.”

Moore also posted a message on Facebook, which explained how he loves soldiers the most because he was an outspoken critic of the Iraq War, and never would have sent them abroad to begin with if he had the choice.
He went on to list the numerous ways he has supported soldiers such as, supporting numerous charities that assists with veterans finding jobs and treatment for PTSD.

Many on the right, including Sarah Palin as well as former and current military personnel have called out Moore out for his “disrespect” of U.S.troops.

At a Iowa Freedom Summit over the weekend, Palin and Medal of Honor winner Dakota Meyer both posed for a picture, holding a sign which read “F*** you Michael Moore.”

After speaking to a crowd, she said: “what the poster said is what the rest of us are thinking”.

According to the Daily Mail, the former Alaskan governor previously issued a statement about Moore’s tirade, saying: ‘Hollywood leftists: while caressing shiny plastic trophies you exchange among one another while spitting on the graves of freedom fighters who allow you to do what you do, just realize the rest of America knows you’re not fit to shine Chris Kyle’s combat boots.’

Debbie Lee, the mother of a slain Navy SEAL Marc Alan Lee, who was the first Seal killed while serving in Iraq, ripped into Moore at a fundraising event attended by Kyle’s widow Taya Kyle this weekend.

Lee challenged Moore to go through military training, saying:
“It means so much to know that there are so many people out here who continue to support what we’re doing in the memory of Chris, in the memory of Marc, And I don’t know if you guys heard, but I challenged Michael Moore that all of you snipers out there will run him through training. Just one day, we won’t even make him go to combat. See if we can educate him.”

Aside from Moore, Bill Maher on his show Real Time on HBO called Kyle a psychopathic patriot while reading through excerpts that he chose in Kyle’s book.

And Actor Seth Rogen compared the film to Nazi propaganda, which he was lambasted by fellow celebs Kid Rock and Dean Cain, who was a good friend to Kyle, even said he wanted to kick Rogen’s ass.
