Bill Maher is very clear about what he states.


Bill Maher is in hot water for his comparison of American Sniper to The Hurt Locker and how that was misunderstood.  Bill Maher described the movie about Chris Kyle, American Sniper, not the person Chris Kyle, it's" just ...American hero,... he's a psychopath patriot and we love him"...

Watch the video before you jump to a conclusion:


He read some quotes from Chris Kyle.  Which tend to support his claim.

psychopath (plural psychopaths)
  1. A person with a personality disorder indicated by a pattern of lying, cunning, manipulating, glibness, exploiting, heedlessness, arrogance, delusions of grandeur, sexual promiscuity, low self-control, disregard for morality, lack of acceptance of responsibility, callousness, and lack of empathy and remorse. Such an individual may be especially prone to violent and criminal offenses.
  2. A person diagnosed with antisocial or dissocial personality disorder.
  3. A person who has no moral conscience.
  4. A person who perpetrates especially gruesome or bizarre violent acts.
Chris Kyle, the soldier did become callous - with a lack of empathy for his foes. No one would argue that his sympathy would lie with his comrades. He was willing to shoot people at distance to save his comrades.


But people are not listening, he's commenting on the willingness of the people to support a movie ABOUT a psychopathic killer,  who doesn't seem Christian, than a movie ABOUT an Explosives Ordnance Disposal technician because of the oversimplification.

They are clouding a supposed attack on Chris Kyle the man, when he was in fact dismayed at the American people.


Now the people that can't see the subtlety of what Bill Maher claimed, like Breitbart need to hit the emotional reset button and understand what he said. Or they can go on getting mad at the wrong thing.
