Abby Martin Stunt Triggers Death, Rape Threats From Chris Kyle Followers

What do you all think? (h/t: Capt. JB H):

via. 21stCenturyWire

This storm of controversy started after Martin released a photo of a T-Shirt design she is currently marketing, which reads “F*ck Chris Kyle”.

Interestingly, this story blends into right into a much more inflammatory situation created by anti-Islamic media personality Pamela Geller who was seen to have intentionally baited what looked like a terrorist attack in Garland, Texas last Sunday.

“Very telling that the #ChrisKyle fans who tell me he ‘died for my freedom’ to wear clothes are threatening to rape & kill me for free speech,” said Martin on Twitter

Perhaps. Abby Martin is a staunch anti-war voice and her view are very well known on that issue – so her feelings regarding both Kyle and American Sniper should come as no surprise to anyone. Mob threats of physical violence against Martin and her family are flat wrong, if not illegal, and should be treated seriously by law enforcement. However, in this new nation of extremes, it’s obvious that passions are running hot in all directions – on issues regarding war and the synthetic fear of terrorism, ISIS and of Muslims in America. Unfortunately, not everyone is patient enough, or in some cases even able to rise above the “shock culture”. Whether it’s the bombastic Geller, the cutting Martin, or the war mongering cult of Kyle, this is the new ugly America where everyone is compelled to shove it in each others’ faces, and where ideological opponents are threatened with heinous physical crimes.

Beautiful America. Classy America. The envy of the world, right?

Wiser pundits should be wondering where this new “free speech” odyssey is actually heading. Regardless, we’ll have to get used to a confrontational culture, of endless calculated and intentionally instigatorial mud-slinging, hate-based and polarized discourse trumps civil debate and discussion. This is just the way things are now. And we expect this unsettling trend to get worse, before it gets better.

So who’s right and who’s wrong? At some point in the near future, that won’t even matter (if it doesn’t already). Problem, reaction, solution. Undoubtedly, this is where the foul-mouthed ‘Geller Culture’ is all heading. As this new instigator environment becomes progressively worse (as it certainly will), then expect our trusted savior and nanny supreme – the Government – to step in and restrict our REAL free speech. Originally, Americans’ “free speech” was earmarked by the US Constitution’s founders – first and foremost – to protect genuine dissenters from a tyrannical government or state.

    “But that still doesn’t explain why they are making non-Western women slaves, killing 1000s of non-Westerners, and suicide ramming themselves into anything that doesn’t agree with them”
    Tell me something, where did you get garbage from? Yes its garbage. As if 1.5 billion had done it.

    – For one thing you can find similar examples done by non-muslim malitias in africa and several places around the world like myanmar and india. You’re naive to think that just because a story sells, therefore it must be the bigger problem. Buddhists, Hindus and Christians have done in the name of religion but never captured the media attention.

    – Another thing, you said, “No you don’t”, but you continue to assert that “they have always been like this”. I don’t know if you live long enough before 9/11. But no they don’t.

    Get a clue, those regions at war aren’t enforced with laws. The problem with you is that you want to believe that there is a law and it is Islam. It is the goal of Islamophobic movement and you walked right into it. So whether a freedom fighter or a terrorist, No one in the right mind would call it legit.

    “I don’t buy it. Its called visited by the devil and obeying every word.”

    You need to realize something.It makes no difference if you buy it or not. 9/11 was horrible. So what was Iraq war? I’m not trying to tell you that your kids is safe. Personally, I don’t care what you think of your safety.
    But when Chris Kyle shot that kid, did you think that kid was grow up to be a terrorist? Coz in their point of view, they’re just defending their homeland. Some who fought might be deemed a hero. But who cares right? “Collateral damage, blah-blah-blah s#it happens. We’re the good guys”

  • Yausari

    Preposterous! Iraq was getting worse and worse ever since the invasion. We all know it. You’re a perfect example of an islamophobe trying to assert that “It has always been like this”.
    Just cut the Cr@p.
    When you shoot bombs from the sky at a concentrated area (which covered around 3-4 countries in the region) with 90% collateral for over a decade, do you expect the people there are going to be act all hunky dory towards the west?

    Beyond the fact that kyle was killed in an early age. God also let his lies get exposed and his reputation ruined, despite efforts by Hollywood and Kyle fans.

    Actually the golden ones are from Saddam Hussein’s collection… Perhaps the replica of Kyle’s is also available in gold, wouldn’t that be a gun to kill that poor gal Martin!? I bet some stautes would be raised too (preferably with a sword)! I just wondered about this fetishistic relationship with killing tools present in all these cases or at least the use of corresponding imaginery (the Japanese obsession with their swords made the katana world famous and the philosophy attached to it (refer to the “Hagakure” and similar works, no less bizarre than other systems of thought about violence: combine Zen (a Buddhist school!, Buddha was about non-violence) with weapons).

  • Rajano

    My political philosophy would best be described as libertarian – I do support freedom of speech and expression. Supporting freedom does not imply I condone what people do with that freedom. All it implies is that too much power in the hands of human beings, human beings with the ability to be corrupted themselves, is very dangerous. Both Abby Martin and Pamela Geller have freedom of speech. It is essential that THEY BOTH have freedom of speech so that no precedent is created that would curtail OUR freedom of speech.

  • Rajano

    It should be no surprise that fans of Chris Kyle, who boasted of killing people, should threaten to kill someone who blasphemes Chris Kyle. Killing: it’s what they do.

    Those are some ballin ass gats. ..I bet those are God’s guns…one for each hand.

    Lindsay Lohan, really?

    Well, I’ll be damned, it’s true.

  • Yausari

    I know right? It goes to show that these people never truly believed in them.

  • cmyfe .

    Anyone buying the ©®@π of “freedom of speech” and “women’s rights” from these “pioneers” of human rights and everything good should read this article again and again.

    If the calls for rape and murder of Hirsi Ali by a bunch of 20 something Muslim males had happened it would be world wide coverage and condemnation. Unfortunately for Abby these threats were made by deranged right wing 20 something male the media has chosen to protect their sensitivities otherwise they will just stop buying Red Bull.

    I lost hope in free speech.

    As much as I think such a shirt is juvenile and immature, the people over reacting are NOT responding in the correct manner. She is doing it for attention, the best thing is to ignore it
