Navy SEAL Chris Kyle, recognized as the most lethal sniper in United States military history, was shot and killed at a charity event in Texas in February 2013. A movie about Kyle’s life, “American Sniper,” was released yesterday.

Max Blumenthal, a writer for Alternet, used the occasion to label Kyle a mass murderer:

This isn’t the first vile attack on Kyle, and it undoubtedly won’t be the last.

      By ‘faceless Iraqis’ Max means “beheading ISIS” terrorists?

    F Max Blumenthal

    • keyboard jockey

      Apparently he’s “special” as in tarded.

      • LoneMassConservative

        That is very insulting to retarded people. They would not associate with Blumenthal either.

    • Infinite_Indeterminism

      Sometimes my reaction is to the basics – he’s commenting a sniper movie, and drags in “mowing down” ??? When snipers are all about precision delivery of single bullets ?

      OK, I get his ideology – but is he also obligated to prove his idiocy ?

      • Wazoo2u2

        Those with his ideology are compelled to display their idiocy to anyone who will listen

        • The Deplorable Jay Stevens

          And unfortunately there are a lot of people listening.

  • Richard J Sunkle

    There have been times in America when the idea of a sharpshooter firing from concealment has been looked upon unfavorably. Fortunately in times of war, rational minds have recognized the value of those shooters in minimizing friendly losses and maximizing the most effective enemy kills.

    This Blumenthal clown sounds like he wants to go back to the days when soldiers stood exposed facing each other firing volleys of shots.

    • Jim R

      I’m more cynical: they want only our guys to get killed. Because RAAAAACISM.

      • Thomas Paine

        If it were an African American sniper he would have a monument already.

        • Jim R

          I don’t think so. There’s a definite hierarchy in lefty grievance mongering. GI’s are only “celebrated” when they can be portrayed as helpless victims of Bush’s illegal war (they really want a modern Ron Kovic); black people only count with the left when they can be made a victim of RAAAAACISM. Hence their hatred for Allen West and their lack of concern for black-on-black violence. A black or Latino war hero would go down the memory hole faster than Peter Liang.

    • NRPax

      Correction: He wants us to stand there and let the enemy shoot us down because it’s “not fair” that we’re more advanced.

    • CatHerder ✓fire! ✓fire!

      We quit doing that after the Civil War. Turned out that massed volley fire was much more lethal with rifled muskets than with Napoleonic smoothbores.

      According to my brother, the Marines still stress marksmanship.

      • OLLPOH ~ OurLifeLiberty

        Exactly! The Marine Corps motto “Every Marine is a basic Rifleman”, says it all!

      • John Hitchcock

        I was deadly accurate at the 500 meter line in boot camp. It’s part of the reason the Germans nicknamed us Devil Dogs way back when. We were picking them off before they even got in firing range of us.

        • Jim Peabody

          John, this “Max” guy probably does not know what a Devil Dog was and even the time frame it was used. I think he needs to go to Syria and find out why these ISIS guys don’t like us. Maybe he can change their way of thinking and live in peace.

          • John Hitchcock

            To Max, the Constitution is over 100 years old and hard to read. Max probably doesn’t realize the USMC was born before the US was.

        • MarkJ

          Old Marine joke:

          Protester: Fascist! How are you able to shoot women and children so easily?

          Marine: Breath control, sight alignment, and trigger squeeze.

      • Thomas Paine

        You can’t miss enough to win a gunfight. It is not the quantity of firepower as much as the quality….the Marines have both quantity and quality.

    • LoneMassConservative

      Except that Max would never fight for anything unles if he can do it from behind a keyboard.

      what amazes me is they make a living doing this. they should make statue to George soros &Stephen bing for bankrolling so much of this.

    • Freddie King

      If you want a real look at the mindset of this Blumenthal weasel and his ilk, go to his twitter account and read up. It’s sort of nauseating that these types of individuals are considered “Americans”. Max Blumenthal certainly doesn’t qualify for the title beyond birthright.

  • QueenB

    “K M G
    @MaxBlumenthal the trailer where he was targeting a child was horrifying. Played during Mon Night Football & made my 7yo son cry.”

    Then perhaps you should have explained to your son that the movie is about a war. A war in which some moms would send out their sons with grenades to blow up US convoys. Of course, your son might actually take the US side when you explain it that way, so I can see why you wouldn’t want to go there. Not to mention you’d then be admitting that the people we were fighting in the war actually sending their kids (meaning, KIDS, not 18 year old adults) to die for the cause, which doesn’t sound too mommy like.

    • 13strigoi

      Why on earth was she letting her 7yo son watch such a violent sport in the first place? That could put a damper on his estrogen production.

      • ejochs

        She feels bad that he doesn’t have a vagina and will punish him for it.

    • ejochs

      Made her son cry? How precious his perfect little soul must be.

      • Utahlady

        Makes me cry also,because I know that kid on the commercial was taught to kill my kid. So forgive me if I am grateful to the guys who can eliminate that problem for me. I certainly do not have the courage to do so . Just remember ,if those kids (and women) can walk,they can and will kill. This enemy knows they have a good chance of killing with women and children BECAUSE it is tough for most of our guys who have been taught to protect women and children,not kill them. So don’t be so quick to criticize the guys that have the courage to give your son the freedom to be home,safe and crying.

  • SupplyGuy

    Can someone explain to me what racism has to do w/ this? If we went to war w/ Iraq because we’re racist against, what? Muslims? Arabs?, there’s several more Arab/Muslim countries that we need to invade then.
    Logic and liberalism just don’t go well together do they?

    • QueenB

      Nothing. It’s just a pavlov dog drolling thing. Racism!!!! Their mouths fall open and they drool on themselves.

      • Jake Bradford

        It is the hit of crack they need and crave

    • Ruy Diaz

      I’ll try.

      You see, the key is in the phrase ‘latent racism’. It is not racism he’s discussing, which can be found everywhere in many guises, but ‘latent racism’, an ideological construct that permeates everything. Latent racism, like ‘the glass ceiling’ (which can’t be seen), or ‘dog whistles’ (which can’t be heard) are articles of faith of the Progressive religion. It allows the believer to feel the equivalent of salvation in the religion: a feeling of smug superiority over their countrymen.


      • Jake Bradford

        Leftism is a religion. people need to understand this. It’s members are devout and often fanatical.

          I think “leftism”, and its cousin, “progressivism” are actually mental illnesses that create delusion of grandeur and worse in afflicted individuals.

        Exactly! They forget that he was a Horrific SAVAGE beast!

        • Ethanery

          Eventually, we may get to the point where they talk about him like he was an innocent victim (I’ve actually heard a few people say things along those lines)

          • OLLPOH ~ OurLifeLiberty

            Ohh most definitely that’s “the narrative” of the Rads/Extremists…that is what has been and is going on…

            “Eventually, we may get to the point where they talk about him like he was an innocent victim “

    Oh yeah, comparing sniping insurgents approaching our troops with RPG’s strapped to their kids is the same as two nut jobs who picked off non-combatants (otherwise known as innocent people) getting gas at a service station.

        They draw sweeping moral equivalencies between a solider in uniform and a kid being used by his family as a martyr. I never understand how they can rejoice in the killing of servicemen and sympathize with the type of people who use kids as human bombs. Just sick.

        • Other than Dien Bien Phu

          They have no moral value or view on life, abortion, so they can draw whatever equivalencies they want without the cognitive dissonance that reasoned people would get.

  • Other than Dien Bien Phu

    The problem we have, IMO, is that we won’t kill bad guys until they quit. Armies kill people and break things: we’ve been pretty good at that. Civilians die in war: it’s unfortunate but is the nature of war as well. WW2 was shorter, for us, than the War on Terror mainly because we killed people until they quit.

  • john

    i went to this douchewaffles twitter to leave a comment … just read a few of his friends and his posts made me sick


    It is not often that I’m left speechless. But after reading these tweets by Max Blumenthal, I’m actually at a loss for words.
    I feel like Max is living in a parallel universe to ours in which every day is Opposite Day….

  • Justin

    Just another bloviating sucktard from the left….

  • Deplorable Jackphatz

    Kyle missed one.

    • AJ

      Might have been the only one he missed. My kids gave me the book yesterday, and Kyle was REALLY good, and REALLY lucky (he described himself as lucky), and he got a LOT of kills. Good book. Looking forward to the movie.

  • Ryan

    Interesting that Blumenmoron uses the term “faceless” here in discussing a sniper. He could apply it to his hero in the White House, you know, using drones to plant a few Hellfire missiles here and there without seeing the actual target, but definitely not a sniper looking at the enemy through a high-powered scope.

  • Other than Dien Bien Phu

    Hey Max, Kyle was performing a “late term” abortion. Would you consider him to be a hero if it were couched in those terms? The American military is performing late term abortions, so you can be on our side now.

  • John Hitchcock

    Get thee behind me, Satan.

  • Mackie

    Blumenthal is like those people who do not have the ability to put things in perspective,who have never confronted such a reality, and hopefully they will never have to.. They fail to understand what war demands. War is ugly, and it is hell, and in reality it is not a movie.You see the same attitudes from people who have never stood in police officers shoes and what he/she confront everyday.

  • John Hitchcock

    You sure are persistent in trying to get at least one of your anti-Semitic bloviations to survive here. You are working hard to serve your father, Satan, and you remain cursed by The One who named the Jews His Chosen People. Your sort of evil is not wanted here. Now, go suck the tailpipe of my Freightliner.

  • QueenB

    Sometimes, people with sever delusions think they are speaking the truth, when in fact, they are full of crap.

    I realize you being told this can be uncomfortable….

  • FlCracker2

    Americans like Chris Kyle are some of the people that made it possible for some weak azzed puss like Blumenthal to voice his pitiful excuse for a thought.

  • American-By-Choice

    Kris Kyle would probably just shake his head in pitiful contempt, remembering that it was precisely that kind of foolishness that set the US vulnerable to 9-11, which created the need to ratchet up the standard of how insane a government can be before we have to destroy it… which sent him to Iraq in the first place.

  • Jerone A. Bowers

    War is not a sport or a feel good endeavor, it’s hell on a grand scale. Evil people are not going to stop beheading because it’s the moral thing to do. There are just some very bad people out there that well just need expired by whatever means available.

  • Guest

    Every liberal who supports The Muslim culture is a misogynist.

  • helioquois

    Blumenthal forgets his heritage. We are Americans…we attack on Christmas and shoot you in your beds. Whatever alternative reality he is living in is flawed. Max…get your butt to Mosul and ask whether those folks are enjoying the peaceful overtures of ISIS, or whether they would appreciate US snipers to keep the peace. Your latent racism against a perceived white America, as well as your slip, are showing pal. Get a grip and lose the moral equivalence.

  • Megalith

    Max Blumenthal? Never heard of her.

  • gold7406

    in a combat situation, snipers save lives. 250 whacked enemy probably saved 1000+
    lives. the draft was eliminated and everyone gets a “free” ride now, able to glide through life without the possibility of ever being “tested.” [the hardest thing they will ever fight is rush hour.]
    sitting on the sidelines, calling heroes names is cowardly and disgusting.

    • rambler333

      gold7406 Good one!!! You nailed it.

  • rambler333

    Max just got his 15 minutes of fame by revealing that he is incredibly stupid. Obviously since he lacks any intelligence, this will be the crowning hi-light of his life.

  • kcp

    Anyone who loves killing other humans is not a person who should be honored.

    • janine g

      ‘It’s not about how much you hate your enemy it’s how much you love your fellow man.’ Chris Kyle loved saving his brothers by killing his enemies. There’s honor in that

    • rambler333

      Chris served 4 tours, was shot twice, and involved in 6 AED attacks. He has two silver stars and a slew of other medals. You could not possibly fathom combat so sit at home and be thankful there are brave men and women overseas and on the streets at home that are protecting your pansy hiney.

      • kcp

        That’s fine that he did was he was supposed to.

        Just that loving doing it is unnerving.

        • rambler333

          Surely you can understand the satisfaction anyone would get from shooting an enemy before they shot you or your buddy.

    • wasp69

      And yet, obama got a nobel peace prize. Go figure…

      • kcp

        Yeah, the Nobel people screwed up there.

  • cysusa

    This man and those like minded could never understand anyone in the military. No matter their branch, skill set, etc. Thank God there are people like Kyle who will do the hard job of fighting for the country.

  • Stuck_in_Ca

    The mentality of the left on full display. Does anyone still not believe these people should never be in charge of anything?

  • Sues

    The trailer showing a child being targeted by a sniper made your son cry. Why were letting your son watch such a thing? Is that part of the progressive movement, to make your child watch things to impress his memory? You do own a television where you just press a button called mute or up and down channel? Come on now, let’s put the blame where it belongs.

  • a view from street level

    of course this max guy is a liberal hack and has probably never had to fight for the country that protects him so what right does he have to destroy anyone with his vial mouth

    Max Blumenthal, a writer for Alternet

    Yeah, this was all I needed to see to know what kind of filth made this comment. Needed not to read anything after, or waste time getting upset – this is nothing new for leftist trash in this country: Run their mouths behind a keyboard or a lawyer.

  • sickntired

    Wow… seems Max doesn’t realize that everyone of those killed happened during War and were All Authorized, and documented as necessary to save the lives of US and Allied troops. They are not random acts and every detail about where it happened, when, the threat to lives, what kind of weapons they were carrying, etc… is scrutinized, and authorized by his superiors, then documented. Because our troops and people like Chris have to worry about people like Max and being accused and charged with murder. I’m betting old Max would have lost his head to the majority of those Chris killed, just because of his last name.

  • Dio Heerai

    This NOT about anything other than him being threatened BETA MALE

  • Irshgld

    It seems the only word they know is “racist” but unfortunately they don’t seem to know the definition…….and who the hell is Max Blumenthal and why is it we exactly need to know his worthless and uninformed opinion, just another a$$hole with diarrhea of the mouth based on emotional chaos and not facts….

    • Jaeger Naught

      don’t hold back now.

      • Irshgld

        I do not plan on it…….the time of holding back is over!

    • sooner58

      Fun Fact:

      term “Racist” was coined in the early 1930s by the principle

      author of the Soviet Constitution, Leon Trotsky, who used it to silence
      political opposition.

      time a liberal calls someone a “Racist”, they are paying

      homage to Trotsky and using a time honored weapon in the Marxist arsenal

      • QueenB

        How was your Christmas sooner?

        • sooner58

          • QueenB

            My Christmas was very good. Completely drama free, which is the first time in years. lol Ps are good. All their kids and significants and grand kids were there this year, so it was great.

        Unfortunately, it seems to be working here, however, I think the tide is turning and the term is being so overused it is becoming tiresome and ineffective…..

  • OLLPOH ~ OurLifeLiberty

  • dev

    Actually Mr. Max, there were 2 snipers in D.C. The older one was a convert to Islam. John Muhammad I do believe. Lee Malvo was his protege. Both were black. Of course the MSM had it profiled as a white angry man in a white van. However, per usual, they proved to be straight wrong. They were equal opportunity killers. I go to the Home Depot where Linda Franklin was killed. All races All ages. Both sexes. In war innocent people get killed. This wasn’t war. It was retribution for an angry black man whose wife had left him. Why don’t you take a trip to Iraq and see how you fare? You don’t have to respect Chris Kyle. We do! You sound more like a Ventura groupie anyway.

  • rambler333

    Max may think he can smear Chris Kyle now that he is no longer around, but there are other seals and 1,000’s of vets and others who admire Chris a lot more than Max. So….. keep your eyes open buddy.

    Who the f is max blumenthal? Chris Kyle is a patriot and outstanding citizen that gave 150% for his country. This max guy should wash his mouth before talking about him.

    The best way to get back at these communist sback is to hit them in their wallets. Don’t buy any of their content or products. Before renting, buying a ticket for
    a movie or buying music, visiting websites, etc. I check who is
    behind collecting the money. If I don’t like what I see, I don’t buy. Simple.

    The lengths these mindless idiots to legitimize their whiny, bleeding heart ass backwardness is starting to make my teeth itch and hair hurt!!!

    Oh Max, I think your mommy is calling you up from her basement where you play keyboard warrior. Your hot pockets are done. Now be a good little trolling lib, go eat your vegan hot pocket, sip your organic chai tea and when you’re done go back to the keyboard and continue on your uneducated, ill informed rants about an American who had the balls to do what your skinny pussy ass didn’t. Look terror in the face and told it to f&ck off! It’s because of men like Kyle you (Max) even have the ability and freedom to spew your nonsense.

  • Sua Sponte

      He doesn’t have to see it to put it down and be vile, he just knows that there are those out there better than him, with integrity and honor and that gives him stompy-feet…

    Max, my friend, if not for Chris Kyle, evil would be on your front door step instead of thousands of miles away. Guess in times of real trouble, asking you to help out would be out of the question.


    Spoiled little rich hypocritical liberal taking a shot at a man that cant fight back. What a piece of crap you are Max! Nutless to the core.

  • Ray Graham

    what the hell is a Max Blumenthal??

  • MarkJ

    Well, judging from his CV, I’ll say something nice about Max Blumenthal: he would have made an outstanding Sonderkommando at Auschwitz.

    • sooner58

      I was thinking he’d have made a good “Archery target’……(wink)

  • Ossian

    REAL easy to take “shots” at someone who is dead and by his own admission (hasn’t seen) the movie and I would bet hasn’t even read the book – OR knows what C Kyle did. I DO have to ask “What RACE is Iraqi” “What race is middle eastern” WHAT the F RACE IS Mooslime? How can someone be “racist” when none of the above is a “race”?

  • Dork Blaster

    I wonder how long it takes for these tweets to be seen by current and former SEAL Team members? There’s no honor beating down a wuss like this chap, but a “Scared Straight” kind of visit by some gentlemen with lethal abilities might alter his mindset.

    Typical liberal. They help start the wars, then attack the men who have to fight them.

  • cabinboy422

    Any person who would equate John Malvo with Chris Kyle does so with ignorance. For a supposedly educated person such as this nitwit to do so is far worse. Willful ignorance compounded with a disgusting air of moral superiority is perhaps the worst quality of the anti-war left.

    • Arrgh2112

      Did he go to Brandeis? Seems like a special kind of people go to “elite” schools. Look at the special one that supposedly went to Harvard.

    Blomen-all is useful in one regard; anyone whose resolve to get the Dems out of the WH will move far more to the right after reading. Blumenthal is exactly what I remember being as a college freshman stoner who thought he knew all, and knew nothing- but he looks a bit old for that…

  • Cozy Powell III

    So writes a “man” who mass murders free and independent thought by being a drone with a keyboard. Who wouldn’t fight back when the bad guys wanted to steal his lunch in elementary school. Who is jealous of guys like Chris Kyle who stand up and fight for what is right.

  • akatom3565

    See the twitter about his targeting a young boy…but no mention that he passed on making that shot PRECISELY because he was a young boy. Ask any Vietnam era vet who ACTUALLY SAW combat jut how many of their squad mates or platoon got killed because of “young boy” with a grenade or riding by on a bicycle.

    War is indeed Hell and unfortunately mankind is still saddled with millions of people who only know or want to go to war with others for reasons most of us still can’t get a grip on, yet it happens almost all the time. Little wars, big wars, gang wars, family feuds. The only difference is the size of the destroyed area and the numbers of dead and wounded. Yet there are still those who think that the cure for such aggression by others is to lie down and give-up even when there are those who will put their own lives on the line to protect not only their own families but the families and lives of weaklings and moral cowards like Max Blumenthal.

    People like him disgust me as their lives are all about themselves and their willingness to succumb to the peer pressure of like minded individuals even if it means ignoring thousands of years of history as well as the very real world of the present all without regard for the greater number of Americans who don’t share their views.
