‘American Sniper’ tweets reveal hidden cost of free speech.

Filmmakers Michael Moore and Seth Rogen’s negative comments regarding the movie American Sniper — a contender for Best Picture at the Oscars next month — have evoked a rather colorful response from self-proclaimed “American Bad Ass” Kid Rock. Kid Rock jumped into the “American Sniper” debate this week, wishing Seth Rogen and Michael Moore would “catch a fist to the face soon” over their controversial comments concerning the Chris Kyle biopic.”That’s the most self-serving…this is a guy who abuses the privileges of this country more than anybody out there,” Morgan told “America’s Morning Show.” “Why this guy is not put in jail is beyond me.Consider the sources: An antiwar filmmaker practiced at the art of self-promotion, and a pothead who recently ignited an international incident by mistake — each making sketchy use of their constitutional right to free speech.Kid Rock is making sure his fans know exactly where he stands on the controversy surrounding box office champ ‘American Sniper’ with a profanity-laden tirade aimed at the film’s critics.

The musician took particular umbrage with the Bowling for Columbine director’s statement that Moore’s uncle was killed by a sniper in World War II and that he was raised to believe snipers were cowards. “Fuck you Michael Moore, you’re a piece of shit and your uncle would be ashamed of you,” Kid Rock wrote on his website. “Seth Rogen, your uncle probably molested you. Clint Eastwood’s Iraq war drama painted a bull’s eye on its back last weekend, setting box office records with a $107 million opening, on the combat boot heels of six Academy Award nominations including best picture. God bless you Chris Kyle, Thank you for your service.” Rogen later backtracked on his comment and said it was blown out of proportion, which is probably your best route after you make the stupid mistake of comparing a Navy SEAL to a fictional Nazi sniper.

Snipers aren’t heroes.” Moore never mentioned “American Sniper” by name, but many connected his comments to the film, a biographical drama focusing on the life of late Navy SEAL Chris Kyle, a war veteran who was widely regarded as the “deadliest sniper” in U.S. history. Rogen tweeted Monday that “American Sniper” reminded him of the fake Nazi propaganda film playing in the third act of Quentin Tarantino’s “Inglorious Basterds,” which showed a German sniper killing Allied soldiers from a clock tower. Rogen, the star and director of the almost-banned comedy The Interview issued a statement about this weekend’s blockbuster hit American Sniper, comparing the Clint Eastwood-directed film to Nazi propaganda. And invaders r worse” The Oscar-winning documentarian backtracked on Facebook, with a weak stance that he didn’t specifically reference American Sniper in the remark.

Quentin Tarantino’s Inglorius Basterds culminates with an assassination attempt on Adolph Hitler at the premiere of a fictional propaganda film called ‘Stolz der Nation’ which translates to Nation’s Pride. Despite those compliments, he criticized the way the movie’s characters call Iraqis “savages” and alleges that Clint confused Iraq for Vietnam with his movie. Moore, who directed the liberal documentaries “Sicko” and “Capitalism: A Love Story,” also caught heat for this tweet: “My uncle killed by sniper in WW2. And there’s a touching ending as the main character is remembered after being gunned down by a fellow American vet with PTSD who was given a gun at a gun range back home in Texas — and then used it to kill the man who called himself the ‘America [sic] Sniper’. And country star Craig Morgan wrote a lengthy Facebook post Monday directed at Rogen, calling his tweets inaccurate and insensitive. “I’m sick and tired of people like you running your mouth when you have no idea what it takes for this country to maintain our freedoms,” Morgan wrote. “If you and anyone like you don’t like it, leave.” According to The Hollywood Reporter, “American Sniper” is set to remain at the top of the box office this weekend.

Of course, it didn’t take long for Sarah Palin and her ilk to remind everyone those are rights Chris Kyle and all veterans fought to preserve, which may be the only thing she’ll ever declare and find consensus — even among some of those Hollywood types she often snarks about. Moore and Rogen’s slips of the tweet are just the latest examples of the hidden cost of free speech, in a social media age the founding fathers couldn’t envision, or else they would’ve added courtesy to the Bill of Rights. Rogen’s other film The Interview, nearly banned for fear that screenings of the North Korean-set comedy would be targeted by terrorists, was not eligible for the Oscars since it was released online a day before it premiered in theaters. Not for Moore or Rogen, whose potshots at American Sniper then tap-dancing around the firestorm broke two unofficial rules of Twitter: Nazi comparisons are dicey at best, and there is nothing more cowardly than not taking responsibility for your words. Rogen clarified. “I actually liked ‘American Sniper.’ It just reminded me of the Tarantino scene… But if you were having a slow news day, you’re welcome for me giving you the opportunity to blow something completely out of proportion.” Mr.
