With all of the liberal hate that Clint Eastwood’s latest movie “American Sniper” has been getting, you might be surprised to find out who one of the movie’s big supporters is… the First Lady herself, Michelle Obama! At a recent speaking engagement where “American Sniper” star Bradley Cooper also spoke, the First Lady heaped praise on the movie and said that it “reflects those wrenching stories that I’ve heard…”
“I had a chance to see ‘American Sniper’ this week on that long flight we took. While I know there have been critics, I felt that, more often than not, this film touches on many of the emotions and experiences that I’ve heard firsthand from military families over these past few years.
Now, I’m not going to spoil it for anyone who hasn’t seen it, but this movie reflects those wrenching stories that I’ve heard — the complex journeys that our men and women in uniform endure. The complicated moral decisions they are tasked with every day.
Just look at the latest box office numbers. The No. 1 movie in America right now is a complex, emotional depiction of a veteran and his family.”
It’s good to finally hear some liberals speaking out about the true nature of this movie, which does not glorify violence in the least. In fact, if anything, the movie shows how the violence of war can cause great emotional turmoil on even the most hardened of combat veterans.
