#AmericanSniper: Pure Propaganda for the #Idiocracy

Lionel Nation | Jan 19, 2015

American Sniper is perfect propaganda. Packaged and delivered as part of the age-old connection and information delivery system between Hollywood and the government. And with Clint Eastwood at the helm, the fellow who fetishized Dirty Harry and drove home the phallic sub-memes of the magnum and “Make my day,” I mean this is perfect. Throw into the mix Michael Moore decrying the horrors of sniping, by sniping oddly enough, and you have to marvel at the beauty of the setup. Frank Capra would be proud. This after the NFL drives home the connection between patriotism and the flag and flyovers and the American pastime and, well, you get the idea. No, be not mistaken, from the folks who gave you Pat Tillman and Jessica Lynch, meet Chris Kyle. And you though Hollywood was liberal! Ha!
