Jesse Ventura continued his campaign against Chris Kyle, the subject of “American Sniper," this week, asking Fox News Radio host Alan Colmes: “Do you think the Nazis have heroes?”

“A hero should have honor. A hero is not how many people you’ve killed. You know he’s obviously a great sniper. He’s obviously a great shot. He obviously did his job correctly. Alan let me fire this one at you: Do you think the Nazis have heroes?” the former Minnesota governor and Navy SEAL said Tuesday.

Colmes responded that the Nazis “were fighting for a cause we can’t condone.”

Ventura continued: “Wait. Wait. Wait. When they invaded a country, when they invaded Poland, when they invaded France, and if a Nazi soldier killed a hundred people that had lived there, would he be classified a hero in Germany?”

Ventura, also a former WWF star, continues to be vocal in his criticism of Kyle after winning $1.8 million from Kyle’s estate in a defamation lawsuit last year, the New York Daily News reported.

Kyle — who wrote the 2011 bestseller "American Sniper," which was turned into a major motion picture that has garnered a handful of Academy Award nominations — died in 2013.

Last month Ventura said he wouldn’t see “American Sniper” because Kyle isn’t a hero to him, The Associated Press reported.

"A hero must be honorable, must have honor. And you can’t have honor if you’re a liar. There is no honor in lying," he told the AP.

In his lawsuit, Ventura testified that Kyle fabricated a part of the book in which he claims to have punched out Ventura in a bar.

The comments sparked outrage on Twitter.
