    Like Moore, Hollywood celebrity Seth Rogen (probably best known for his movie "The Interview" about assassinating North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un) also attacked the movie "Sniper" comparing it with a Nazi propaganda movie that appears at the end of Quentin Tarantino’s film "Inglourious Basterds."




    And like Moore has tried to walk back his original statement after coming under criticism




    Despite being nominated for six Academy Awards including Best Picture this reaction seems somewhat popular among some in Hollywood. A billboard there promoting the film was recently vandalized when someone defaced it by scrawling the word "Murder" in red on it.

      "It kind of reminds me of Nazi propaganda films."

      "I didn't mean anything by it, I just said it "kinda reminded me. Geez."

      I'd have more respect for them if they just stood by what they believe. As it is, these guys just come across as wimps.

        Moore loves to pretend that's he's just some working class sorta guy. Look at his ludicrous assertion that "I'm not in the one percent" on Piers Morgan's now defunct CNN program during the Occupy Wall Street rioting (a claim that he later had to admit was utter poppycock).

            Mr. Moore-

            Good afternoon there sweetheart, I hope this finds you alive and well. You can thank our men and women of the armed forces for that, by the way, and that also includes us cowardly snipers. It seems you’ve found time between licking the jelly off your fingers and releasing your grasp of a bear claw to tweet some junk about snipers being cowards.

            My buddies and I got a good laugh over the tweet, so I thank you. For a guy worth $50 million dollars, you sure have quite a bit to bitch and cry about. I guess like a moth to flame, you too gravitate towards things that are popular and in the moment — in this case it’s snipers. Too bad for you that your attempt at being relevant via your 70+ year old family experience has failed. It has only made you look dumber than a bag of hammers. Next time you should try something more original than going after snipers for one reason or another…that was so last month.

            It’s typical of “men” like you to criticize the intestinal fortitude, focus, discipline and patriotism of a sniper. It must stem from an inferiority complex or something. But hey, it’s okay cupcake. We snipers are thick skinned and the efforts of world class turds such as yourself to portray us in a negative light only makes us laugh. If you and I were in the same room, I’d throw you a smile and gently pat you on the head knowing you’re nothing more than a mouth breathing, Crisco sweating waste of space not even worthy of being in the presence of a sniper. It’s almost funny how people like you preach things like ‘acceptance’ and ‘not passing judgement’ or ‘labeling people’, but then are the first to do so when a person is in some way dissimilar from you.

            So tenderfoot, I leave you with this final thought: what if you found yourself in some sort of hostage situation where you were held at knife-point by some crazed person and they were dead set on making an example of you by bleeding you out on Hollywood Blvd in front of the world, and the only way out was with the precision aimed fire of a sniper? Would you want that coward to take the shot? Because knowing how you feel about snipers such as myself and your hatred of firearms, I’d probably drop the mag, roll the bolt and go get a Jack & Coke before helping you out.

            Very Respectfully,

            Sikes

                    Michael Moore has slunk back out from underneath his rock and posted the following on Twitter:

                        Interestingly, during her dressing down of Rogen and Moore[1] you could actually hear Rosie O'Donnell cheering her on But O'Donnell recovered when the token conservative on the show agreed with Goldberg and defended the duo.

Michael Moore, you know better." She continued, "My brother came through the ’60s. If you've ever been to war, you can call people all kinds of names. Until the bombs are exploding around you, and people are dying around you, you need to be a little more sensitive, dudes. I get that you’re creative types, but so are they. So back up, or not?"

                            I like how half the lies are "things that didn't appear in the film". IE: not lies. Alternet continues to live up to its reputation of solid hard hitting journalism.

                              Yeah the same God who destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah. Wiped out evil mankind in the flood. Drowned the Egyptians as they chased his people. Killed their firstborn.

                              I don't think Moore knows who God is. He isn't a hippie and he isn't Mike's buddy. He is the creator of the universe and he gives and takes lives according to his plans.

                                Exactly. Those who see Christ as some sort of hippie flower child must never have read about that little instance with the money-changers at the Temple mentioned in John's Gospel.
