What Michael Moore & Ron Paul Have in Common on Chris Kyle

A couple of days ago, with American Sniper continuing to smash box office records, Michael Moore continued his campaign against the late Chris Kyle by invoking Jesus.

Moore tweeted, “Tomorrow’s Sunday School (1) What Would Jesus Do? Oh, I know what he’d do— hide on top of a roof and shoot people in the back!”

This isn’t the first time Jesus has been uttered in vain concerning Chris Kyle. After Kyle was killed nearly two years ago, Ron Paul tweeted, “Chris Kyle’s death seems to confirm that “he who lives by the sword dies by the sword. Treating PTSD at a firing range doesn’t make sense.”

Needless to say, Paul’s tweet provoked outrage. Like Moore, Paul couldn’t leave things well enough alone and sent a follow up tweet:

As a veteran, I certainly recognize that this weekend’s violence and killing of Chris Kyle were a tragic and sad. My condelences and prayers go out to Mr. Kyle’s family. Unconstitutional and unnecessary wars have endless unintended consequences. A policy of non-violence, as Christ preached, would have prevented this and similar tragedies.

As I wrote at the time, “Paul’s first two sentences could have atoned for his Tweet. But he just had to jump on his soapbox. Blaming Kyle’s death on “unconstitutional and unnecessary wars” is no better than Obama and company blaming the Sandy Hook massacre on insufficient gun control.”

Neither Moore nor Paul can help themselves. They are in love with the sound of their thoughts. While there are people who genuinely opposed the War in Iraq on principled grounds what Michael Moore and Ron Paul have in common is their willingness to smear an American hero and Jesus Christ so they can draw attention to themselves.
