Tweet of the Day: Michael Moore asks, answers ‘what Jesus would do’ in re Chris Kyle

“American Sniper,” the film about the exploits of Navy SEAL Chris Kyle, considered the most deadly sniper in U.S. military history, continues to rock the box office. And mockumentary filmmaker Michael Moore continues to lob idle shots at the film and at Kyle, who was murdered in 2013, four years after receiving an honorable discharge from the military.

Moore’s latest campaign against the film and its heroic protagonist is presented in a series of tweets that purport to answer the question of what Jesus would do with respect to snipers (h/t Weasel Zippers). An appeal to Christianity is generally a last recourse for diehard liberals, who as a rule are contemptuous of every organized religion except for Islam, but Moore appears desperate.

In the final tweet in the series, Moore explains that he is the real hero because he tried to prevent George W. Bush from sending U.S. troops to Iraq.

Moore never mentions Barack Obama in his “Sunday school” lesson, even though 74% of U.S. casualties in Afghanistan came after the current commander in chief ordered a troop surge there in 2009. In fairness to Moore, he has been critical of Obama’s reliance on drone strikes, which kill indiscriminately  … well, sort of anyway.
