Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin took to her Facebook page to slam “Hollywood leftists” who attack the U.S. military, in particular snipers in the wake of the success of the movie “Americans Sniper.”
Palin wrote, “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.”
Her comments come on the heels of attacks on snipers, Kyle and the film by leftist director Michael Moore, comedian Seth Rogen and anonymous members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Science.
Palin continued, invoking Kyle’s widow and children, writing, “May the epic “American Sniper” bring nothing but blessings to Taya and the children of this true American hero.”
She ended her post by thanking star and producer Bradley Cooper and director Clint Eastwood, saying, “Thank you Bradley Cooper and Clint Eastwood for respecting the United States Military.”
