“Offended” Muslims are demanding that Clint Eastwood back down and follow this command

REPOSTED FROM THE CONSERVATIVE POST
Muslims are outraged about Clint Eastwood’s new movie American Sniper.
Sameer Khalaf, President of American-Arab Anti-Discrimination declared that America Sniper is igniting hate against Muslims in America.
Khalaf is demanding Clint Eastwood and Bradley Cooper to send a message saying: “Arabs are Americans and Muslims are Americans.”
“The fact that there has been a rise in hostility towards the Muslim community in America is more likely due to the actions carried out by Muslim extremists, rather than the actions of Hollywood,” Conservative Tribune reported.
"Offended" Muslims are demanding that Clint Eastwood back down and follow this command
What do you think? Is American sniper pushing Muslim hate in America or is just a result or recent attacks in Europe?

Clint Eastwood Refused To Cast His Own Son In “American Sniper” Because He Doesn’t Believe In Handouts

My comments: I don’t know about the rest of you, but Clint is one of my very favorites.  And AMERICAN SNIPER should have walked away with a half dozen Oscars rather than being ostracized by those commies in Hollywood.  Scott Eastwood look just like his Daddy, and from what we’ve seen, he’ll be a great one too.

Whether we’re talking about Steven Spielberg casting his Goddaughter Drew Barrymore in E.T. at a young age or Will Smith putting his son Jaden in The Pursuit of Happyness and After Earth, nepotism usually runs rampant in Hollywood.
Not so fast for libertarian filmmaker Clint Eastwood and his son Scott.
Clint refused to cast his son in American Sniper because he’s not one for giving “hand-outs.”

That’s right — Clint himself turned his own son down. The younger Eastwood told The Independent UK:

“I auditioned for American Sniper and didn’t get a role. But it was actually perfect…I would have loved to have been part of American Sniper but then I wouldn’t have the opportunity to do this film.”

Eastwood the younger has been turned down before by his father for film roles, and he understands why:

“If people knew the truth about my dad, they would be like, ‘Wait? What?’ The truth is he’s very old school, there are no hand-outs. It’s the opposite.”

He explains that his father wanted to instill him with a sense of self-sufficiency:

“It’s so funny because my dad was like: ‘Go get a job. Go figure it out. You want to be an actor, go for it but you better get a day job because that doesn’t pay the bills.’”

Until now, Eastwood hadn’t had much success in acting- he landed bit parts in various films, but he’d also been working various day jobs around Los Angeles for years — bartending, construction — whatever it took to pay the bills.

But his famous father’s message of hard work and perseverance appears to have paid off, especially since he landed a role in the film The Longest Ride:

“My dad always says, ‘Just stick around.’ Everybody thinks it’s an overnight success. But the reality is, it takes years of hard work.”

A great message for anyone, son of a movie star or not.

The New American Veteran – Chris Kyle Funeral

I just wanted to share with you all that out of a horrible tragedy we were blessed by so many people. Chris was (my son’s) teammate through 10 years of training and battle. They both suffer/suffered from PTSD to some extent and took great care of each other because of it.

 

2006 in Ramadi was horrible for young men that never had any more aggressive physical contact with another human than on a Texas football field. They lost many friends. Chris became the armed services number #1 sniper of all time. Not something he was happy about other than the fact that in doing so he saved a lot of American lives. Three years ago, his wife Taya asked him to leave the SEAL teams as he had a huge bounty on his head by Al Qaeda. He did and wrote the book The American Sniper. 100% of the proceeds from the book went to two of the SEAL families who had lost their son in Iraq. That was the guy Chris was.

 

He formed a company in Dallas to train military, police and I think firemen as far as protecting themselves in difficult situations. He also formed a foundation to work with military people suffering from PTSD. Chris was a giver not a taker. He along with a friend and neighbor, Chad Littlefield, were murdered trying to help a young man that had served 6 months in Iraq and claiming to have PTSD.

 

Now I need to tell you about all of the blessings. Southwest Airlines flew in any SEAL and their family from any airport they flew into free of charge. The employees donated buddy passes and one lady worked for 4 days without much of a break to see that it happened. Volunteers were at both airports in Dallas to drive them to the hotel. The Marriott reduced their rates to $45 a night and cleared the hotel for only SEALs and family.

 

The Midlothian, Tx. police department paid the $45 a night for each room. I would guess there were about 200 people staying at the hotel. 100 of them SEALs. Two large buses were chartered to transport people to the different events and they also had a few rent cars. The police and secret service were on duty 24 hours during the stay at our hotel.

 

At the house the Texas DPS parked a large motor home in front to block the view from reporters. It remained there the entire 5 days for the SEALs to congregate in and all to use the restroom so as not to have to go in the house. Taya, their two small children and both sets of parents were staying in the home. Only a hand full of SEALs went into the home as they had different duties and meetings were held sometimes on a hourly basis.

 

It was a huge coordination of many different events and security. (My son) was assigned to be a pall bearer, to escort Chris’ body when it was transferred from Midlothian Funeral Home to Arlington Funeral Home and to be with Taya. Tough job. Taya seldom came out of her bedroom.

 

The home was full with people from the church and other family members that would come each day to help. I spent one morning in a bedroom with Chris’ mom and the next morning with Chad Littlefield’s parents (the other man murdered with Chris). Tough job.

 

Nolan Ryan sent his cooking team, a huge grill and lots of steaks, chicken and hamburgers. They set up in the front yard and fed people all day long. The 200 SEALs and their family. The next day a BBQ restaurant set up a buffet in front of the house and fed all once again. Food was plentiful and all were taken care of. The church kept those inside the house well fed.

 

Jerry Jones, the man everyone loves to hate, was a rock star. He donated use of Cowboy Stadium for the services as it was determined that so many wanted to attend. The charter buses transported us to the stadium on Monday at 10:30. Every car, bus, motorcycle was searched with bomb dogs and police. I am not sure if kooks were making threats trying to make a name for themselves or if so many SEALs in one place was a security risk…I don’t know. We willing obliged. No purses into stadium!

 

We were taken to The Legends room high up and a large buffet was available. That was about 300 people. We were growing. A Medal of Honor recipient was there, lots of secret service and police and Sarah Palin and her husband. She did not impress me. She was taking the opportunity to be interviewed for TV and dressed in high clog shoes and corduroy jeans. She looked nice, but this was a very formal military service. She was not dressed appropriately. The service started at 1:00 and when we were escorted onto the field I was shocked. We heard about 10,000 people had come to attend also. They were seated in the stadium seats behind us. It was a beautiful and emotional service. Bagpipe and drum corps was wonderful and the A&M men’s choir stood through the entire service and sang right at the end. We were all in tears.

 

The next day was the 200 miles procession from Midlothian, Tx. to Austin for burial. It was a cold, drizzly, windy day, but the people were out. We had dozens of police motorcycles riders, freedom riders 5 chartered buses and lots of cars. You had to have a pass to be in the procession and still it was huge. Two helicopters circled the procession with snipers sitting out the side door for protection.

 

It was the longest funeral procession ever in the state of Texas. People were everywhere. The entire route was shut down ahead of us and people were lined up on the side of the road the entire way. Firemen down on one knee, police officers holding their hats over their hearts, children waving flags, veterans saluting as we went by.. Every bridge had fire trucks with large flags displayed from their tall ladders….people all along the entire 200 miles standing in the cold weather. It was so heartwarming. Taya rode in the hearse with Chris’ body so (my son) rode the route with us. I was so grateful to have that time with him.

 

The services were at Texas National Cemetery. Very few are buried there and you have to apply to get in. It is like people from Civil War, Medal of Honor winners a few from the Alamo and all the historical people of Texas. It was a nice service and the Freedom Riders surrounded the outside of the entire cemetery to keep the crazy church from Kansas that protests at military funerals away from us.

 

Each SEAL put his Trident (metal SEAL badge) on the top of Chris’ casket one at a time. A lot hit it in with one blow, (my son) was the only one to take 4 taps to put his in and it was almost like he was caressing it as he did it. Another tearful moment.

 

After the service the governor’s wife, Anita Perry, invited us to the governor’s mansion. She stood at the door and greeted each of us individually and gave the SEALs a coin of Texas. We were able to tour the ground floor and then went into the garden for beer and BBQ. So many of the team guys said that after they get out they are moving to Texas. That they had never felt so much love and hospitality. The charter buses then took the guys to the airport to catch their returning flights. (my son) just now called and after a 20 hours flight he is back in his spot.

 

Quite an emotional, but blessed week.

Chris Kyle, Amen

This is being circulated on the net and should go viral.  It is the story of an American hero — a real one who didn’t need to embellish his life story.  Regretfully his story, while huge, is much too short.  Please share it if you like it.

AN AMERICAN STORY THAT NEEDS REPEATING…..

This is apparently from a wife of one of the Navy Seals in attendance… it makes interesting, disturbing, but hardly surprising reading.

Chris Kyle became the armed services number #1 sniper of all time. Not something he was happy about, other than the fact that in so doing, he saved a lot of American lives.

Three years ago, his wife Taya asked him to leave the SEAL teams because he had a huge bounty on his head by Al Qaeda. He did and wrote the book “The American Sniper.” 100% of the proceeds from the book went to two of the SEAL families who had lost their sons in Iraq.

That was the kind of guy Chris was. He formed a company in Dallas to train military, police and I think firemen, how to protect themselves in difficult situations. He also formed a foundation to work with military people suffering from PTSD. Chris was a giver not a taker. He, along with a friend and
neighbor, Chad Littlefield, were murdered trying to help a young man that had served six months in Iraq and claimed to have PTSD.

George W Bush and his wife Laura, met and talked to everyone on the Seal Team one on one. They went behind closed doors with Taya for quite a while. They had prayer with us all. You can tell when people were sincere and caring

We just wanted to share with you, the events of a quite emotional,but blessed week.”
To this day, no one in the White House has ever acknowledged Chris Kyle; his service, his death, his duty, his generosity, his caring, his life. However, the President can call a sports person and congratulate him on his bravery for announcing to the world that he is gay.
He can say on national television that someone, a man who has committed a crime and was shot by police in the line of duty, would have made him a good son.The SEALS have asked that you please, keep this moving if you think Chris Kyle would have made a good son.

Muslim Students Rush Stage, Force the Cancellation of the University’s ‘American Sniper’ Showing

by

The Student Body President Desmond Miller and EMU President Susan Martin get an ‘A’ in dhimmitude and cowardice. They caved in record time when approximately 35 students (all either Muslims or useful idiots) stormed the stage during a showing of American Sniper. Chris Kyle was a genuine American hero and the greatest military sniper in history. He was known for taking down our enemies… now our enemies, who have infiltrated our universities, are taking down America.

From Top Right News:

Muslim students continue to wage jihad against one of America’s most admired war heroes, using protest and intimidation to shut down showing of ‘American Sniper’ on college campuses.

Earlier this month the U. of Michigan cancelled a showing after Muslims called the subject of the record-breaking film, the late Chris Kyle, a “racist” and “mass killer” — only to reverse themselves after a huge outcry that included their new football coach Jim Harbaugh.

Last weekend, another Michigan college, Eastern Michigan University, planned to show two screenings of ‘American Sniper.’

But during the first showing, four protesters climbed onstage at the Student Center Auditorium chanting anti-American slogans and demanding the screening be stopped. The four were briefly arrested:

Four students at Eastern Michigan University (EMU) were arrested Friday after disrupting and causing the cancellation of a screening of American Sniper.

The Echo, EMU’s student newspaper, reported that roughly 35 students walked onto the stage at the Student Center Auditorium in protest during the 8P.M. screening of the Academy Award-winning film. The group of students worked together to try to shut down the 8:00 p.m. and 10:00 p.m. screenings of the film about the deceased Navy SEAL sniper Chris Kyle.

“The reality is, this is about a process of not allowing cultural appropriation for the movies being allowed into the university.”

This idiot progressive Islamist doesn’t even understand his own liberal claptrap. So-called “appropriation” is when White people anger ethnic activists by wearing a turban, or sombrero. All American Sniper portrays is Chris Kyle killing the enemy. But if you support that enemy over America, that certainly might upset you.

Protest leaders Ahmed Abbas, Layali Alsadah, Jenna Hamed, and Sabreen Dari were arrested after attempting to shut down the 8 P.M. screening. The protesters were successful in getting the 10 P.M. screening cancelled.

How were they “successful”? By getting surrender monkeys who run the school to knuckle under, which they did:

Student Body President Desmond Miller, the decision to cancel the second showing was a joint-decision he made with EMU President Susan Martin: “The conversation we had wanted to make sure student safety was at the forefront. We wanted to make sure whatever happens, students would be safe. The second part of it, which is actually just as important as the first part, was making sure we have a very serious dialogue about the movie and the propaganda associated with this movie,” Miller told The Echo.

Completely caved to violent intimidation (“student safety”) and Islamofascist ideology — accusing the film itself of propaganda, instead of the anti-American Muslim students themselves.

Pathetic.

Want to give EMU President Susan Martin a piece of your mind?

You can do so at 734.487.2211734.487.2211, or via email HERE.

I would definitely give Susan Martin a call and/or an email and voice your opinion here. Calling American Sniper propaganda is just unacceptable and totally unpatriotic. It’s bad enough they backed down in the face of violent intimidation… I’d hate to see what they did in a real battle with weapons. They would probably cower in a corner, pleading for the Muslims not to hurt them and wet themselves. It reminds me of the mayor in Red Dawn who threw his support behind the Russians to save his own worthless hide. That didn’t work either. So, these Student Body and University leaders champion Islamofascists and kneel before our enemy. That’s a heck of a lesson to teach at the college level. It’s Surrender 101 and just pathetic in the extreme.
