'I Love My Soldier' Bumper Sticker Sparks Hate-Filled Note From Stranger

threatening letterMany 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.

Wow people are crazy! Next thing is assault on a person from an enraged cat allegry sufferer, who was wearing a shirt that said I love my cat.

Is it sad that after so many of these "letters" have come out as hoaxes that I just don't believe it? It's not that I don't think there are people aweful enough to say such things, ut I think even more people are after their 15 minutes of fame. I think I'll wait a few weeks to see if it's real first.

Nope, I'm with Kattey on this one .. I might have believed it at first, but the "hoaxer" so to speak ruined that by getting all exaggerative at the end "bitch I should slash your tires" yeah, no.. I call b.s.

There was a woman here on cafemom who posted the same kind of thing. It wouldn't surprise me if this women did something like this. Any time someone would post pro-military things on Facebook she would post a bunch of anti-military stuff in the comments. Some people are crazy.

As an army wife, I do believe this story. This DOES happen, quite offen too. People are crazy.

It's sad that she removed the bumper sticker because of threats. She should be proud and was very classy to state that it's a matter of opinions

This is why I didn't put "Love my Soldier" stuff on my car. Its scary even if it isn't true. Plus I wasn't going to advertise that I was alone.

I agree with Katty. Probably a hoax.

What a fucking asshole! Who does that kind of stuff? I am a liberal and certainly do not support war or half the shit our government does but I have the upmost respect for the people who are out there protecting us. That young wife lives her life on eggshells when her husband is deployed and god forbid she looses him while he is serving? Then what? She is to be ashamed? I feel so bad for her. My sister was deployed in Afghanistan for 9 months and it was brutal. Skyping during air raids and bomb attacks, watching the screen as people with some serious weapons walk back and forth on the screen. It is no fucking joke what these men and women go through to serve our country. I can't believe some self entitled brat would leave a note like that.

can't say the note is any bit incorrect though... I mean the name calling and threat was uncalled for but everything else is right on the money. open your eyes people.
