"Let ISIS rape you" and "Cut her head off": How #TCOT honors an American Sniper

Criticism of American psycho sniper Chris Kyle whips rightwing #tcot trolls into a racist, death fantasizing frenzy. Some are calling for blood.


  1. Michelle Malkin's rightwing rag, Twitchy, published a post yesterday highlighting my criticism of the late American military sniper Chris Kyle, who published a book bragging that he enjoyed killing 160 to 250 Iraqis during his deployments to Iraq at the height of the illegal US invasion and occupation.

  9. Before he died, Kyle started a security training company called Craft International. He designed the company's logo, which plagiarizes the skull from The Punisher and includes the slogan, "Despite what your momma told you violence does solve problems."
  10. The response from the #TCOT community to our public disgust with Kyle's unrepentant racism and serial killer-like enthusiasm for gunning down nonwhite people has been telling.
  11. Some fantasize about ISIS raping and beheading me. Others hope I am killed by a sniper. Most can't spell or write coherently. Nearly all agree that Kyle was a hero and we should be thanking him for killing Iraqis to protect our freedom to tweet.
