American Sniper : Patriot Porn and the Celebration of Psychopathy

‘Patriot Porn’ and the Celebration of Psychopathy….. Yup, Hollywood just made another war-film….

( It seems as though producing the blockbuster Movie Of The War is now as much an integral component of the USA’s murderous and insane Zionist-inspired foreign policy as the theft of oil, installation of Rothschild Central Banks, or privatization of water supply.)

Needless to say, we can expect the usual mix of re-written history, racism, and brain-rotting propagandist bullshit ….

….and sadly, this kind of pernicious indoctrination actually works….american sniper2

Iraq veteran Brian Turner : ” In American Sniper, Iraqis are called “savages,” and the “streets are crawling” with them. Eastwood and his screenwriter Jason Hall give Iraqis no memorable lines. Their interior lives are a blank canvas, with no access points to let us in. I get why that is: If Iraqis are seen in any other light, if their humanity is recognized, then the construct of our imagination, the ride-off-into-the-sunset-on-a-white-horse story we tell ourselves to push forward, falls apart…. In American Sniper, Iraqi men, women, and children are known and defined only in relation to combat and the potential threat they pose. Their bodies are the site and source of violence. In both the film and our collective imagination, their humanity is reduced in ways that, ultimately, define our own narrow humanity.

….There’s a scene — scenes, actually — in American Sniper where Chris Kyle struggles with the decision to shoot a child. Those scenes dredged up memories of Mosul and Baghdad, where I once heard the words ”You are authorized to shoot children” come crackling over the radio. I also remember watching soldiers in my own platoon lob plastic water bottles filled with their own urine at village children who would run to us as we drove by — thirsty children who motioned with their thumbs to their mouths in a gesture pleading for water”

‘The fact that a man who participated in the 2nd siege of Fallujah — an operation that killed between 4,000 to 6,000 civilians, displaced 200,000, and may have created an epidemic of birth defects and cancers — can come home, be embraced as a hero, be celebrated for the number of people he has killed, write a bestselling book based on that experience, and have it made into a Hollywood film is something that we need to reflect on as a society’. http://www.telesurtv.net/english/opinion/American-Sniper-20150110-0019.html

“I hate the damn savages. I couldn’t give a flying f.uck about the Iraqis.” – Chris Kyle, the ‘true American hero’, upon whose memoirs the movie is based.  This US Navy Seal from Texas bragged about killing 255 Iraqis. Kyle reportedly described killing as “fun”, something he “loved”;  his “only regret is that I didn’t kill more”.
