Navy SEAL: 'We Fought for People to Say Things We Don't Agree With'
Jane Horton, the widow of a sniper, and former Navy SEAL Clint Bruce were on “The Kelly File” to respond to Hollywood’s criticism of “American Sniper.”
Michael Moore tweeted:
My uncle killed by sniper in WW2. We were taught snipers were cowards. Will shoot u in the back. Snipers aren't heroes. And invaders r worse

But if you're on the roof of your home defending it from invaders who've come 7K miles, you are not a sniper, u are brave, u are a neighbor.

Moore now claims that these comments were not about "American Sniper" specifically.
Seth Rogen tweeted:
American Sniper kind of reminds me of the movie that's showing in the third act of Inglorious Basterds.

“The beautiful and brutal irony is that’s what we fought for […] we fought for the opportunity for people to say things we don’t agree with,” Bruce, Chris Kyle's friend, said.
Horton’s husband was killed at 26. She explained that he knew being a sniper was one of the most targeted positions, but he also chose it because it is the most lethal, and he wanted to protect and serve his country.
