'American Sniper' Viewers Share, Express Their True Feelings

(27 mins.)  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=raFHlwVp4LI

American Sniper has warped Americans' fragile little minds

How does modern propaganda work? How effective is it? Adam blows these issues wide open with an incredible series of man on the street interviews.

For the record, this was not a selective group, or even in a particularly conservative or pro-military area. The people you see in this video were the first seven people on the 3rd St Promenade in Santa Monica, California who answered yes to, "Did you see American Sniper? Do you think Chris Kyle is a hero? Would you like to do a quick interview for my YouTube channel?"

Its a movie, based on a book. 02.Feb.2015 05:20

This movie has so many people freaking out. its just a movie. Its based on a book that a man wrote about his experiences, and his colleagues as far as I know back up the accounts in it.

If it wins best picture (which it won't), doesn't mean it is the best picture. Most aren't. Its just a collective opinion of Hollywood types. Its made a lot of money at the box office, paying a lot of income taxes because of that money and funding a lot of government with those taxes.

relax.

Chris Kyle seems to have had a little problem when it comes to telling the truth.

[1] He claimed that he shot and killed two men at a gas station south of Dallas when they tried to steal his truck. BS

[2] He claimed that he and a buddy shot and killed up to 30 armed looters in the aftermath of hurricane Katrina. BS

[3] He claimed that he punched out Jesse Ventura at a bar. BS This one cost his estate $1.8 million due to a defamation lawsuit.

I haven't heard whoppers like these since I was in the third grade. He strikes me as something of a man-child.
