Michael Moore came out saying that snipers are cowards. Of course, there was backlash. So did he apologize? No, instead he discussed that Jesus Christ would never be a sniper. Well, shit, that’s true. Ain’t it? My, that’s some of that there college learnin’ I bet! Yi-yuck!
This only proves the fact that Michael Moore is a coward. As is Bill Maher and Howard Dean. They also discussed now snipers are patriotic psychopaths. After the other guests supported our snipers and discussed the American Sniper film in mature terms, Billy and Howie immediately started backtracking.
That is cowardly, and this is why I have no respect for people like them. I’ve said it once, and I’ll say it again. You know who I respect? Jerry Lee Lewis. In the 1990s, he was asked to present an award for Best Female Artist. He responded, “I can’t. I don’t respect female artists.” And everyone went crazy. They DEMANDED he recant and apologize. Jerry Lee made an official statement that was short and to the point. It was to the effect, “What? I don’t respect female artists.” And everyone got on with their lives. They got someone else to give the award. The world didn’t end.
Do I agree with his point of view? No. But he held true to it. With the entire world (basically) screaming at him and demanding he apologize, he simply refused and didn’t let what other people thought of him affect him. That’s a guy I can respect. How can you respect anyone that takes a stand and then starts sniveling and squirming when they met the least bit of resistance? It is also a sign of someone who has taken their values merely upon what they believe will make them liked, and not someone that has hammered out their beliefs until their soul is finely tempered for the rigors of the life ahead.
Long Live the Constitution!
