Jesse Ventura on People Calling Chris Kyle a Hero: ‘The Nazis Have Heroes’ Too

Jesse Ventura, the former Minnesota governor and Navy SEAL, continued going after Chris Kyle by saying it’s not much to call him a hero because the Nazis had heroes too. Ventura successfully sued Kyle’s estate last year for defamation over Kyle claiming in his book that Ventura badmouthed the military and he punched him as a result.

Ventura said last week Kyle is a liar and shouldn’t be considered a “hero.”

Tonight, in a conversation with Alan Colmes on his radio show, Ventura doubled down. Colmes asked him about the controversy Michael Moore started about whether Kyle and other snipers are heroes.

Ventura asked, “Do you think the Nazis have heroes?”

Colmes said, “Well, obviously the Nazis were fighting for a cause we can’t condone.”

Ventura continued his argument and said that Nazi soldiers who killed hundreds would be considered heroes in Germany. Colmes pressed Ventura on whether this means he actually thinks America is “analogous to the Nazis” and you can hear Ventura’s answer to that in the audio segment below, via Fox News Radio:
