A Georgia woman says she returned to her car earlier this month to find a vile letter on her windshield, targeting her over an “I love my soldier” bumper sticker that she had placed on her car to support her fiancé.
“I got in my car and noticed the paper on the windshield,” Ellen Wilson told WTVM-TV. “I drove off in case someone was watching, and then I grabbed it and read it and saw this lovely letter from this person.”
The unsigned letter criticized Wilson’s portrayal of her soon-to-be husband as a hero.
“So I noticed your ‘I love my soldier’ decal. I’m sure he is your [sic] ‘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,” the letter said.
“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,” it continued.
The letter concluded, implying that her husband was guilty of executing “unnecessary murders.”
“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 b****! You’re lucky I didn’t slash your damn tires!!” it said.
Wilson told WTVM that she was stunned someone would author such a letter.
“How could someone do this?” she said. “I’m not mad. It’s fine what you believe in and what I believe in, but I’m not going to hate you for it. But to attack somebody else, especially someone close to me, is a different story.”
“This is real, and it happened, and I just don’t want it to affect another military spouse,” she added.
Wilson has since removed the bumper sticker, at the request of her fiancé, WTVM reported. It was initially posted on her Facebook page where it has since garnered online attention.
