D-list actor compares “Act of Valor” to Nazi propaganda film

Posted By McQ • [February 28, 2012]

This yahoo feels entitled to spout his nonsense, and I feel just as entitled to respond:

Star of TV’s Parenthood, Dax Shepard, compared the pro-U.S. military film that stars actual Navy SEALs, Act of Valor to Adolf Hitler’s Triumph of the Will. On his Twitter feed the one time Ashton Kutcher prank boy from Punk’d wrote: “Saw ‘Triumph of the Will’ tonight, oh wait, I mean ‘Act of Valor’ great action.” Apparently the reaction to Shepard’s obnoxious tweet, comparing this week’s #1 movie starring active duty Navy Seals to a Nazi propaganda movie was immediate, as he attempted to walk back his comments.

Shepard lamely claimed he was: “not comparing our military to Nazis. Pointing out the exceedingly high level of propaganda in both.”

Yeah, and Hollywood never puts out propaganda, do they dimbulb?

Froggy made the prediction some time ago that this would be the reaction to the movie by the Hollywood set and critics.  He was right on.  (The critics hate it – 30%, the people love it – 86% and oh, by the way, it owned the box office this past week)

Jackwagons like this goob are always ready to pitch their edgy comments because, you know, they’re cool.  Or at least they think they are.  They’ve been in a movie or something and are considered a “star” by others.

Of course, they couldn’t hold a Navy SEAL’s jock or in anyway understand the reality the film actually brings to the screen vs. his career of stupid pranks he calls acting.

He has no idea what is or isn’t “propaganda” in a film or he’d condemn half of what Hollywood produces.  But because his reality (and mindset) is so far removed from that which those men and their families in “Act of Valor” live everyday he feels entitled to dismiss the film as comparable to Nazi propaganda?

Well, this is the land of the free and the home of the brave and the sheepdogs welcome and defend the right to free speech.  In fact, the very men he denigrated by his immature and thoughtless remark are out there guaranteeing it right now.

That doesn’t change the fact that he’s a consummate dumbass and a D-list actor of marginal talent though, does it?
