Rolling Stone writer is too white and privileged for American Sniper

Now that the movie bio of Chris Kyle’s life, American Sniper, is on track to set the record for having the biggest second-week box office for a January release, Matt Taibbi of Rolling Stone has come undone.  Evidently, the film is so over the target, it’s got some vile, hate-filled progressives running for cover and others like Taibbi doubling down.

In Taibbi’s latest Rolling Stone commentary, “American Sniper Is Almost too Dumb to Criticize,” the writer felt compelled to use the “ludicrous and idiotic” politics of the blockbuster film as a springboard for – what else? – a ludicrous and idiotic anti-war, Bush-bashing political diatribe. 

The only thing that forces us to take it seriously is the extraordinary fact that an almost exactly similar worldview consumed the walnut-sized mind of the president who got us into the war in question.

It's the fact that the movie is popular, and actually makes sense to so many people, that's the problem.

Taibbi has another problem.  And it’s personal.  He admonishes director Clint Eastwood for including “crass stupidities” like a scene of a “shirtless buffed-up SEAL Kyle” and his screen wife “gasping at the televised horror of the 9/11 attacks.”  Earlier in his punditry he refers to the “hunky Bradley Cooper.”  Does the impudent word-slinger have issues?

Progressives like Taibbi have a real aversion to masculine men doing masculine things like taking out bad guys.  The writer was befuddled when his fellow audience members in the “liberal-ass Jersey city movie theater” stood up and cheered after they watched Kyle make an impossibly precise hit on an evil sniper.  The concepts of good and evil seem to irk Taibbi as well.

The characters in Eastwood's movies almost always wear white and black hats or their equivalents, so you know at all times who's the good guy on the one hand, and whose exploding head we're to applaud on the other.

Carl Jung once wrote, “Life is a battleground, it always has been and it always will be; and if it were not so existence would come to an end.”

Taibbi and his fellow feminized male progressives apparently have no stomach for the battle, so they pile on those who do, like Chris Kyle.  But rest assured: if Taibbi found himself on his knees next to a black-hooded member of ISIS, and his existence was about to come to an end,  having a “d***” and “psychopath” like Kyle around would come in handy.

Kyle served in the military, saved lives, and was man enough to do what he was trained to do, and Matt Taibbi despises him.

Taibbi is a white, privileged, rich, Bard-educated writer for Rolling Stone Magazine.  The son of an NBC reporter, Taibbi is an entitled one-percenter who contemptibly refers to Kyle as a killing machine who, in the movie, “starts to feel bad after killing enough women and children.” 

Predictably, Taibbi conveniently forgets that he writes for a magazine that glorified the Boston bomber in a rock-star cover photo.  No wonder Eastwood uses white and black hats to identify whose head should get blown off.
