Former GOP vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin addressed “Hollywood leftists” with their “shiny plastic trophies” on Monday in a Facebook post responding to criticism about the movie “American Sniper.”

Palin criticized these “leftists” for “spitting on the graves of freedom fighters” and decried that the opponents of the movie were “not fit to shine Chris Kyle’s combat boots.”

Kyle, the subject of the Hollywood blockbuster, was a Navy SEAL who served as a sniper and wrote an autobiography with the same title as the movie: “American Sniper.”

Since premiering, the film has received criticism for its glorification of the American military and categorization of opposition forces. Liberal documentary filmmaker Michael Moore and comedian Seth Rogen were among the vocal critics of the film.
