Islamophobia in action.
The mentality behind the real life man who inspired 'American Sniper' was NOTHING like it was portrayed in the film. Is he hero or Killer?
I would not doubt that this film is sparking violence, tension and threats.
Truly spoken by someone who has neither watched the film nor read his book.

Yes he is so islamiphobic that he calls a muslim afghani man his brother, invited the same man to his home and was working to get him and his family green cards.

You can disagree with what he did and you can disagree with the movie but please, educate yourself and at least watch it or read the book so that way you know what you are talking about.

In no way does the movie celebrate mass murder.

I get it, your a sheep and some sheep don't like sheepdogs and confuse them with wolves until they come face to face with a wolf.

Has been a while since WW11 but as I recall Germany Army was known to have many snipers.

Would they be considered Heroes?

What did you do to stop David Koresh?

It didn't tell a real story...

The biggest plot of the movie isn't real.

Several characters, while based off real characters, are not real/had no interactions with Kyle.

It's a Hollywood movie, with some links to a real person.

It's kind of like the I Am Legend movie. Based off a book and at the same time nothing like the book.

Boko Haram
The selling of women into slavery in Muslim countries
the killing of Afghan girls who want to go to school
Parasitic Muslims who go to other countries and kill cartoonists
"Lone wolf" Parasite Muslims
The wars Mohammad fought to establish his "religion of peace"
The wars of apostasy
That everywhere Muslims share a border with non-Muslims they kill "infidels"
The fact that Muslims constantly kill each other as "heretics"
The bounty placed on Salmon Rushdie's head
The invasion of the west by Muslims who have no intention of assimilating
The women who is crying because the cops made her take off her hijab for a mug shot.
The Muslims in Sweden responsible for the rape epidemic
Mohammed himself for being a child rapist

And on and on and on. We could literally go infinitely, as Muslim atrocities occur faster then I can write them.

The fact is, the days when people are sympatric to this kind of crying are rapidly coming to a close. If they want others to respect them, then they need to start by apologizing and cleaning their own houses.

And that is not just "radical Muslims" or "Islamicists" or the "tiny minority," that is every single practitioner of the religion of peace. Every one of them needs to apologize for not doing enough to denounce the poison that is at the very core of their religion, and for bringing that poison to the west.

Until they do so and commit to serious reform of their religion, they should probably get used to the "islamaphobia," which is really just the immune system of Western nations recognizing a parasitical virus and kicking in, and get real used to being on the losing end of the violence that they have brought with them to their homelands. They have awakened the sleeping giant.
Perhaps all Christian organizations, then, should officially, publicly, and without qualification denounce:

The Holocaust
The genocide of the Herero
The Rwandan genocide
The invasion of Iraq
The invasion of Vietnam
The Belgian conduct in Congo
Abortion clinic attackers
Abortion doctor attackers
School shooters
Timothy McVeigh
The KKK
The Confederacy
Henry VIII
Vlad III of Wallachia
French torture in Algeria
The bombing of Dresden
The transatlantic slave trade
Chattel slavery in the Americas
World War I
South African apartheid
Colonialism
The forced relocation of Native Americans
Segregation
Race riots
Removal of aboriginal children from their families in Australia
Ethnic cleansing in the Balkans
The Inquisition
Witch trials
McCarthyism
Sovereign Citizens Movement
Neo-nazi orgs.
Broken treaties and wars of aggression against Native Americans
The Crusades
Thirty Years' War
Gender discrimination in the West
Violence against women in the West
Racial, ethnic, and religious discrimination in the West
Discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation in the West
The killing of Matthew Shepard
Anti-gay violence in the West
Conversion "therapy"
The assassination of Fred Hampton
European pogroms
Maronite terrorism
IRA terrorism
Orange Volunteer terrorism
The Atlanta Olympic bomber
The LRA
The Army of God
Westboro Baptist Church
The CSA
Forced conversions in the Roman Empire, the Saxon Wars, Goa, and of Native Americans
The failures to investigate or prosecute rape
The killing of Dr. Tiller
The militarization of police
etc.

Or maybe we should not brazenly mark all members of a huge group with the actions of other members of that group. And maybe we should exercise some religious tolerance.

This movie is purely propaganda, it never fails to amaze me how easily humans can be manipulated.
