"Lone Survivor" pisses off libs
« on: January 10, 2014, 03:44:50 PM »
I figured I'd read the book before I saw the flick, so I made the purchase on Amazon. While It's downloading, I'm checking out the reviews (5 stars:2,772, 1 star:124). Just for chits and grins, I check the 1 star reviews. It seems the vast majority couldn't get past the lib slap down that Marcus Luttrell does to the media and libs in general.

1.0 out of 5 stars Self-congratulating moron., January 9, 2014

This review is from: Lone Survivor: The Eyewitness Account of Operation Redwing and the Lost Heroes of SEAL Team 10 (Mass Market Paperback)
As a fan of the genre I eagerly awaited the arrival of this book. It became apparent after just a few chapters, however, that the author is not too bright; wants to shove his moronic political agenda down your throat; and is very much in love with himself. He'll get to do a lot more public self-congratulating now that his movie is coming out. I tossed his book in the gabage where it belongs and I'll skip the movie. If you possess even half a brain you'll do the same...

He starts out telling you how it's Liberal's fault that so many GI's were dying in Iraq. He is insinuating that it would be safer if they could just shoot them all "and let God sort it out"

1.0 out of 5 stars Could Not Recommend This Less, January 3, 2014

This review is from: Lone Survivor: The Eyewitness Account of Operation Redwing and the Lost Heroes of SEAL Team 10 (Mass Market Paperback)
I'm a military (navy) veteran that bought this book in hopes of enjoying it as much as those individuals that had recommended it to me. In less than 100 pages, it became clear that I was reading an exaggerated/braggadocious account filtered through the writing style of an elderly Brit....expressing language and historical detail that Marcus Luttrell would never have. From a literary perspective -- one of the worst books I have ever read. From a factual perspective -- one of the most inaccurate non-fiction books I have ever read. No matter your political point of view, it is asinine to alienate half your audience.

Couldn't get through first chapter. His vitriolic rant about 'liberals' and staying the hell out of their way made my stomach turn. Genuinely was interested in reading the book but was disgusted by the absolute disregard for individuals who don't think like he does. and for that very reason am a proud liberal. I mourn the loss of our fallen brothers but I'm not going to be browbeat by this diatribe.

1.0 out of 5 stars God Dam Liberals and their Media!!, December 30, 2013

First off this book deserves 5 stars. Marcus Luttrell and these guys are heroes. But as I read this book I got more and more offended by the constant snips against the liberal media (of course not Fox News) and then against liberals themselves. Like we put those got God Adam herd boys on that mountain and caused this whole scenario.

Several times I nearly thru this book in the garbage. I kept wondering what America these guys were fighting for? Is the freedom of speech, opinion and religious gone or is this cultural hatred of liberals prevalent in the military and/or Texas?

I love this country. I appreciate the effort and sacrifices made to make our country safer but don't presume that liberals are the root cause of all evil. I think differently than most folk, I know that, but I still have a valid opinion. I can think of several founding fathers who would agree with me.

Seems there's plenty more, but that was more than enough to get me to purchase the book.

Watching the trailer...I thought I recognized Peter Gabriel covering Bowie's "Heroes" - and it is.

The book is one of the better first-hand accounts of a running battle that I have ever read...the incredible character of these men in the face of so much adversity is a testament to what these men are made of and Marcus has been on set since day one with this crew as have other former SEALs to be sure every actor participating in this gets it right, Marcus has been reminding these people constantly that the honor of these men is all that matters and the attention to every detail no matter how small is important.

That libiots are upset with who Marcus is as a person is laughable...he could have left any personal political opinion out of the book entirely and, what?  We are expected to believe these libiots would love the book?  Hilarious!  They would have called he and his mates mindless trigger-happy cowboys out murdering peaceful Muslims and most of them got what they deserved!  These libiot asswipes on Amazon are stooges, foils for their fellow travellers to warn the mushyheaded middling types away from this war-mongering right-wing nut.

Both we and Marcus know these gutless weasels will be the first to fall when things get bad, they can spout off all they want, we all know who and what they are and they aren't worth anymore of our time.

But the buffoonery of the libiots ensures this movie, just like "The Passion" will generate a lot of traffic at theaters and on DVD/Blue Ray and PPV releases.  So, thanks for the promo assist, superdumbasses!

Saw it last night, and it was excellent.  Tense throughout; at times you could have heard a pin drop in the theater, which was 100% full.  Just bought the Kindle version of the book and am looking forward to reading it.

Bought the Kindle version 2 days ago and have started reading it. A friend recommended seeing the movie before reading the book. Naturally he tells me this yesterday AFTER I started. ::pullhair::
