Medal of Honor recipient Dakota Meyer is blasting lefty filmmaker Michael Moore for Moore’s outrageous tweet Sunday that accused “American Sniper” hero Chris Kyle and men like him of being cowards.
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

Meyer, the first living Marine to win the Medal of Honor in nearly 40 years, knows a thing or two about courage. He took a few minutes to school the liberal propaganda maker Moore on the realities of life – and war.
Here is the letter, as posted on Scout.com.
I’m sure that his grandfather who died serving this country is rolling over in his grave knowing that his grandson is using him to justify him calling U.S. service men cowards. I’d be willing to bet that at some point during his grandfather’s service, he was watched over by U.S. snipers, and probably had his life saved more than once by U.S. snipers during the war.
I served as a Marine sniper for three years, and I believe the film American Sniper depicted what we do perfectly. A sniper’s primary goal is to eliminate ground threats for U.S. guys on the ground. Is that what a coward is? A person whose goal is to save the lives of his warrior brothers?
No, cowards are people who didn’t have the guts to serve, and are happy to sit back in a free and protected country and call our service members cowards. I find it funny that this Moore guy would only say this after Chris Kyle was killed. I’d have loved to see him say that to Chris’s face.
Look, I’ve never seen a Michael Moore movie and sure don’t plan to. I’d call on everyone to boycott this idiot’s films. Don’t embrace or support his ignorance.
What would I do if I owned a Michael Moore DVD? I’d set it up out back and set my cowardly sniper skill on it.
