"American Sniper" is still breaking records at the box office, but that's not stopping left-wing critics like Howard Dean and Michael Moore from continuing their attacks on the film.

On "Real Time with Bill Maher," Dean said, "There's a lot of anger in this country. And the people who go see this movie are people who are very angry. And this guy basically says, 'I'm gonna fight on your side.' And they bite for it. I bet if you look at a cross-section of the Tea Party and people who go to see this movie there's a lot of intersection."

Moore also continued his criticism of snipers with a series of tweets that invoked Jesus.

One person who disagrees with those comments is Debbie Lee, the mother of Chris Kyle's best friend, Marc Lee, the first Navy SEAL killed in Iraq.

Lee, who made a cameo appearance in the film, said on "Fox and Friends" that if her son and Kyle heard Moore's comments, they would probably just chuckle at how uneducated he is.

As for Dean's comments, Lee said that the people who are going to see "American Sniper" in theaters are people who understand the price of freedom, who support the troops and who want to learn more about our heroes.

"These are the toughest warriors that we have in America and the most compassionate men that I've ever known," Lee said.

"The movie is a great thing that's out there telling their story, honoring them ... the message that comes out [is] the sacrifices that are made, the choices that are made and our need to continue to support our troops."
