Nah, it's the actual opinion. Do you really think if Tim Robbins,
Susan Sarandon, et al said they were going to make a film praising
US military action, there'd be a firestorm of criticism (except maybe
from some left-wingers crying "sellout" or something such)? <<
There would be people bitching about it, yes.

Who? I'm guessing a country singer of some reknown - I have heard the
name before but I have no idea what he said or sang. Anyway, I will admit that
when a celebrity with conservative beliefs states his opinion the response is
usually more restained, but there's still a response. And a lot of it is of
the "he should stick to singing to hucklebucks / he should stick to blowing
stuff up in movies" type responses.
