Murdered Navy SEAL Chris Kyle was the target of a rash of hateful tweets after news of his shooting death spread, and as Twitchy reported, former Rep. Ron Paul was among the most high-profile of the lowest-class responders, tweeting that “he who lives by the sword dies by the sword.”

Chris Kyle’s death seems to confirm that “he who lives by the sword dies by the sword.” Treating PTSD at a firing range doesn’t make sense

“Into the Fire” author Dakota Meyer, who holds both a Purple Heart and the Medal of Honor, wasn’t about to let Paul’s insensitive tweet go unanswered.

Let me remind you @ronpaul Chris Kyle is an American hero to not only myself but to America #RIPCK

@dakota_meyer well said Marine! @ronpaul for shame Ron Paul!

Paul received plenty of well-deserved condemnation for his tweet. The United States saw fit to honor Meyer with its highest military honor; though we’re not expecting an apology from Paul any time soon, we’d hope Meyer’s tweets help him put things into perspective.
