'I Love My Soldier' Bumper Sticker Sparks Hate-Filled Note From Stranger
CafeMom ^ | 7-16-14 | Michele Zipp

Posted on 07/30/2014 5:11:51 PM PDT by SJackson

Many people put stickers on their cars that show something about them. Ellen Wilson of Savannah, Georgia, has an "I Love My Soldier" bumper sticker on her car to show her support for her fiance in the military. This sticker apparently enraged someone so much that they left a threatening note on Wilson's windshield while she was shopping inside her local Target store.

The note, which was unsigned, was clearly written by a person who was very angry -- it's a full-on rant with an underlined word and an expletive. It also contained a threat saying she was lucky he or she didn't slash her tires. There's more.

The letter read:

So I noticed your 'I love my soldier' decal. I’m sure he is your 'hero' too right? I feel really bad for you and how blind you must be to what is really going on in this country. First off he is NOT your hero. Your 'man' is a pawn being used in the immoral game of wholesale murder. If you're aware of the real reasons America goes to war (corporate profits) and the role 'soldiers' play in making such immoral acts possible. The last thing you would label a soldier is a hero. There is nothing heroic about blindly following immoral orders from a undeserved paycheck, especially when such orders involve the unnecessary murder of others!!! It’s people like you and your 'soldier' who are destructing our country, shame on you bitch! You’re lucky I didn’t slash your damn tires!!

The person who wrote this letter is certainly entitled to their opinion. But that's not what should be the focus here. The issue is that a stranger left a note with a threat in it on a person's windshield who they presumably didn't know. Soldiers, and those who love them, are people too and do many things beyond serving our country. We all deserve respect. The author doesn't know Wilson's stance on anything -- all that is known is that she loves her soldier like the bumper sticker said. The person who penned this letter should instead take this anger and use it in a better way -- write to the President, start a blog -- but don't attack a stranger in the form of an unsigned cowardly note calling her a bitch and threatening to slash her tires.

Despite it all, Wilson told WTVM that while she is shocked someone would do this, she isn't mad. She respects those who have a different opinion than she does, and she wouldn't attack someone else over it. She has, however, removed the bumper sticker at the request of her fiance, which was probably a good idea, especially since this issue has gone to the media. She shouldn't be the target for anyone else's hate

I would like to see this despicable person identified using the Target security cams and charged with making terroristic threats.

Let's see if I have this right.
The hissy-fit foaming at the mouth insane leftists get to have any bumper sticker they choose, and enjoy total immunity from insult, damage and harm.

However, others who express patriotism, of other divergent opinion is fair game, because you didn't get your grass or other medication of choice today.

You want a vehicle damage war?
Careful what you wish for, you damned coward. Or does it have to be a woman?

Wonder if the cops looked at the surveillance tapes to get a description of the hater/threat thrower.

Too bad she had to remove the sticker :(

Typical Lefty Pussy...if he had any balls, we would have been there to actually state his opinion to her face to face.

He knows she would have whooped his ass if he hung around..(yes, I am making a assumption about it being a man, but I have to go with my gut on this one...)

Yes. If not a woman, preferably no one to witness the act. I'd probably have my wife take it off too, though it wouldn't come off my car.

We had a creep here on FR that agreed wholeheartedly with the sentiments embodied by the note writer.
Called us Nazi skinheads, Rambo wannabes, etc etc.
He finally bought it.

Have been noticing fewer American flags flying on front porches. Have been noticing the drop off in our flag being flown over several years. I'll confess am not flying our flag as often as I should. Going to have to mend my own ways and fly our flag more often.

Signs of the times and an obama voter likely left the note.

Ms. Wilson's Fiance made the right call. Looking more and more like the People are going to have to go underground.

Vehicle damage war? I’m in. I wonder how that COEXIST Prius will hold up against my1995 1 ton, crew cab, 4wd pickup. No, I don’t wonder. I know exactly what will happen.

I once sent a letter to the editor of a local paper regarding my support of the Iraq war. While the paper only printed my name, some loon took the time to find my address and send me a nasty letter in response to what I had written.

Of course it wasn't signed and there was no return address on the envelope........

He was “Carl from Marietta”.
He finally had a bunch of military types come down on him like the hand of Thor.
And he was lucky that a few of his comments were removed prior to his last bit of stupid.

If people hated the soldiers in WWII, today we’d be saying, “Heil, Hitler, or to whomever his predecessor is.

It is always the same playbook response, recycled time and time again.

For my whole life, I loved the American flag, and always felt proud and lucky whenever I saw it fly.

Now, it just breaks my heart to see it. It feels like total mockery and I feel like turning away.
