Amid reports that she is “seriously interested” in running for the White House, Sarah Palin is taking “a lot of heat” for posing in a photo with Medal of Honor recipient Dakota Meyer, as they held up a four-letter message to Michael Moore.
The sign read: “F— you Michael Moore.”
As has been widely reported, the morbidly obese far-left filmmaker criticized the film “American Sniper,” based on the life of ex-Navy SEAL Chris Kyle, calling snipers “cowards.”
Meyer posted another photo of the moment on his Facebook page:
Palin addressed the photo Saturday while speaking at the Iowa Freedom Summit and she didn’t back away from it, telling the audience “what the poster said is what the rest of us are thinking.”
“Man, it seems like we are always kinda going rogue, or something,” she joked.
The former Alaska governor told the Iowa crowd she saw a “bold young vet” holding the sign up at the Shooting, Hunting and Outdoor Trade Show in Las Vegas, and she called him up front where she was signing books with Kyle’s widow, Taya Kyle.
“We’ve taken a lot of heat over the two days for being seen with a four-letter message to Michael Moore that he deserved,” she said.
But unlike the coward Moore, who tried to back away from his words after being inundated with criticism, Palin doubled down on her position.
Palin told the audience the movie is breaking records “because America needs a hero again, and Chris Kyle has been that man.”
“And screw the left in Hollywood who can’t understand what it is we can see in someone like Chris Kyle and all of our vets,” she added.
The crowd ate it up.
