Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin issued a scathing statement to critics of U.S. sniper Chris Kyle and the movie made about him, calling them disrespectful to all the “freedom fighters” who’ve protected this nation.

“Hollywood leftists: while caressing shiny plastic trophies you exchange among one another while spitting on the graves of freedom fighters who allow you to do what you do, just realize the rest of America knows you’re not fit to shine Chris Kyle’s combat boots,” she wrote Monday on her Facebook page.

She also wished the “epic ‘American Sniper’ [would] bring nothing but blessings to [Kyle’s widow] Taya and the children of this true American hero,” on her Facebook site. And one more thanks: “God bless our troops, especially our snipers. … Thank you Bradley Cooper and Clint Eastwood for respecting the United States military.”
