Truth or Fiction

Green Beret Sniper Bryan Sikes Destroys Michael Moore in Letter – Authorship Confirmed!

 

 

Summary of eRumor:  

Green Beret Sniper Bryan Sikes slammed filmmaker Michael Moore after Moore said on social media that he’d been taught that snipers are cowards.

The Truth:

 

It’s true that Bryan Sikes penned an open letter to Michael Moore that appeared at the website Clash Daily on January 25, 2015.

The letter was written in response to comments that Michael Moore made about snipers on Twitter. Moore said that he’d been taught that all snipers were cowards after the move American Sniper, which tells the story of former Navy SEAL sniper Chris Kyle, became a box office hit

Moore later denied that his comment was directed toward Chris Kyle, or American Sniper.   

Bryan Sikes responded with an open letter that appeared on Clash Daily, a website founded by conservative author Doug Giles. In the open letter, which was shared more than 300,000 times within days of publication, Sikes begins by calling Michael Moore a sweetheart:

“Mr. Moore-

Good afternoon there sweetheart, I hope this finds you alive and well. You can thank our men and women of the armed forces for that, by the way, and that also includes us cowardly snipers. It seems you’ve found time between licking the jelly off your fingers and releasing your grasp of a bear claw to tweet some junk about snipers being cowards.

My buddies and I got a good laugh over the tweet, so I thank you. For a guy worth $50 million dollars, you sure have quite a bit to bitch and cry about. I guess like a moth to flame, you too gravitate towards things that are popular and in the moment — in this case it’s snipers. Too bad for you that your attempt at being relevant via your 70+ year old family experience has failed. It has only made you look dumber than a bag of hammers. Next time you should try something more original than going after snipers for one reason or another…that was so last month.”

This isn’t the first time that Bryan Sikes has taken issue with Hollywood personality, either.

In May of 2014, Sikes blasted actress Gwyneth Paltrow for comparing cyberbullying to combat in another open letter published at Clash Daily:

“To Miss Paltrow,

I’d first like to start out by saying how terrible I feel for you and all your friends that on a daily basis have to endure mean words written by people you don’t know. I can only imagine the difficulty of waking up in a 12,000 square foot Hollywood home and having your assistant retrieve your iPhone, only to see that the battery is low and someone on twitter (the social media concept that you and all of your friends contribute to on an hourly basis to feed your ego and narcissistic ways), has written a mean word or 2 about you. You’ve hit the nail on the head, war is exactly like that. You should receive a medal for the burden you have carried on your shoulders due to these meanies on social media.

You said, “Its almost like, how in war, you go through this bloody dehumanizing thing and then something is defined out of it.” I could see how you, and others like you in “the biz”, could be so insecure and mentally weak that you could pair the difficulty of your life on twitter to my brothers who have had their limbs ripped off and seen their friends shot, blown up, burned and disfigured, or wake up every morning in pain – while just starting the day is a challenge. How about our wives? The ones that sign on to be there for us through thick and thin, that help us to shake the hardships of war upon our return? And do all this while being mothers to our kids, keeping bills in order because we are always gone, and keeping our lives glued together. They do all this, by the way, without a team of accountants, nanny’s, personal assistants, and life coaches. Yeah, reading a mean tweet is just like all that.”

So, Bryan Sikes’ open letter to Michael Moore isn’t necessarily a surprise. The former Green Beret and recipient of the Purple Heart has a history of outspoken support for veterans.

 


A real example of the eRumor as it has appeared on the Internet:

Bryan Sikes is a Green Beret Sniper who is now a Pro-Am shooter for GA precision Team Bushnell. He is also a no-nonsense man who hilariously destroys Michael Moore in an open letter, going so far as to call him a “Crisco Sweating Waste Of Space Not Worthy To Be In The Presence Of A Sniper.’

Mr. Moore-
Good afternoon there sweetheart, I hope this finds you alive and well. You can thank our men and women of the armed forces for that, by the way, and that also includes us cowardly snipers. It seems you’ve found time between licking the jelly off your fingers and releasing your grasp of a bear claw to tweet some junk about snipers being cowards.
My buddies and I got a good laugh over the tweet, so I thank you. For a guy worth $50 million dollars, you sure have quite a bit to bitch and cry about.

It’s typical of “men” like you to criticize the intestinal fortitude, focus, discipline and patriotism of a sniper. It must stem from an inferiority complex or something. But hey, it’s okay cupcake. We snipers are thick skinned and the efforts of world class turds such as yourself to portray us in a negative light only makes us laugh. If you and I were in the same room, I’d throw you a smile and gently pat you on the head knowing you’re nothing more than a mouth breathing, Crisco sweating waste of space not even worthy of being in the presence of a sniper. It’s almost funny how people like you preach things like ‘acceptance’ and ‘not passing judgment’ or ‘labeling people’, but then are the first to do so when a person is in some way dissimilar from you.
So tenderfoot, I leave you with this final thought: what if you found yourself in some sort of hostage situation where you were held at knife-point by some crazed person and they were dead set on making an example of you by bleeding you out on Hollywood Blvd in front of the world, and the only way out was with the precision aimed fire of a sniper? Would you want that coward to take the shot? Because knowing how you feel about snipers such as myself and your hatred of firearms, I’d probably drop the mag, roll the bolt and go get a Jack & Coke before helping you out.
Very Respectfully,
Sikes
