Who would ever think to compare decorated Navy SEAL Chris Kyle — the most successful sniper in U.S. military history — with one of the notorious D.C. snipers who terrorized the nation’s capital and went on one of the worst random killing sprees America has ever seen?
Who would come up with that mind-bending comparison? Liberal journalist and author Max Blumenthal, that’s who.
Currently the senior writer for the far-left website Alternet.org, Blumenthal has previously plied his trade for a number of liberal sites and publications, including The Daily Beast, The Nation, The Guardian, Huffington Post and Salon.com.

When the movie about Chris Kyle, “American Sniper,” was released on Christmas Day, Blumenthal thought it appropriate to let his twitter followers know what he thought of the late SEAL…which also provided clear insight into the writer’s disdain for the U.S. military.
So without even having seen the film, he fired off a couple of shocking tweets that got one Fox News host hopping mad; and she talked on air to a close friend of Kyle about the writer’s “absurd” comments.
By the way, you’ll notice that in his insulting tweets, Blumenthal — the “award-winning” journalist — calls the D.C. sniper Lee Boyd Malvo by the wrong name.

It’s also interesting to note that the new film about the “American Sniper” Chris Kyle has done very well in its initial theatrical release, setting a box office record on Christmas Day for the best limited-release opening on under ten screens.
