Something that has been ingrained in me from an early age is to always respect the men and women who risk their lives so we can enjoy our freedom here at home. Respect shows no bias for a certain job in the military, and all who serve should be treated equally. Director Michael Moore apparently doesn’t share the same sentiment for our troops. On Sunday, he took to Twitter to further strengthen this notion.
My uncle killed by sniper in WW2. We were taught snipers were cowards. Will shoot u in the back. Snipers aren't heroes. And invaders r worse
— Michael Moore (@MMFlint) January 18, 2015
Yeah? You’re the real coward here, Mr. Moore. If we didn’t have the cover from snipers, our men and women doing raids would go in blindly with no support. Snipers are heroes, just like the rest of our servicemen and women. Earlier today, Fox News brought Sgt. Nick Irving onto “Fox & Friends.” Irving, who was also a sniper, earned the nickname “The Reaper” for his impressive record. He also is the author of the book “The Reaper.”
The show’s hosts asked him about his thoughts on Michael Moore’s tweet and whether or not Moore should have been thanking him instead of insulting him. Here was his response:
Drop the mic.
I know Moore won’t give it to you, Sgt. Irving, but I will. Thank you for everything you have done to serve the greatest country on the planet. God bless you. Moore can sit on it and spin..
