The lunacy of the left, movies about American heroes are bad and transsexuals are good. Look at how differently the New York Times features Jenner vs Kyle.
The title for a story on Bruce Jenner reads, ‘Bruce Jenner’s Courage’. Read some of the column below…
Bruce Jenner’s Courage, By Nicholas Kristof, NY Times
When I was a growing up, yearning with my pals to be a track star, one of our heroes was Bruce Jenner. He won a gold medal at the 1976 Olympics in the decathlon, and he adorned our Wheaties boxes. We all wanted to be Bruce Jenner.
I haven’t thought much about him in years. But Jenner is in the news again, widely reported to be preparing to come out as a transgender woman.
At first, there were snickers, but, lately, the tone has been respectful. And news reports say Jenner is planning to chronicle the transition in a program for E! television channel and in an interview with Diane Sawyer for ABC News. All this, and comments by family members, suggest that Jenner is willing to be a role model and help educate the world on transgender issues.
Now, compare that to how this columnist discusses the last scene of the movie as being ‘insane behavior’:
‘American Sniper’ Moral, By Gail Collins, NY Times
Things we can learn from “American Sniper”:
“American Sniper” tells the story of Chris Kyle, a real-life Iraq war veteran and sharpshooter. The film is certainly powerful, and it celebrates our Iraq veterans. But it also eulogizes the killing of Iraq insurgents, including children, and critics feel it ought to be put in the context of an invasion that didn’t need to happen in the first place.
There’s been less conversation about the final scene in the movie, which shows the hero walking through his family home, where the kids are romping. He’s carrying a handgun, which he points at his wife Taya, playfully telling her to “drop them drawers.” Taya says she can see he’s finally getting over his war traumas and back to his old fun-loving self.
This is, by virtually any standard, insane behavior.
