#FreeWarMachine: A hashtag for the worst people on planet earth

War Machine, thinking positive thoughts about himself.

War Machine, thinking positive thoughts about himself.

If you’re worried that your view of humanity is excessively sunny, well, here’s one way to fix that: take a look at the hashtag #FreeWarMachine on Twitter, full of people who seem to honestly believe that mixed martial arts fighter and sometime porn actor War Machine either didn’t beat his ex-girlfriend nearly to death, or that, if he did, she probably deserved it anyway.

In other words it’s a virtual parade of the very worst people currently living on planet earth. I’m posting some of the, well, milder tweets below, but even though I’m avoiding the worst you should seriously consider heeding this TRIGGER WARNING and visit @CuteEmergency instead.

So here are the sorts of people in War Machine has in his corner:

Oh, but it gets worse. The most active commenter in the hashtag is a hyperbolically racist troll (in all senses of the word) whose name contains a racial slur. You’ll have to go through his history to see the terrible, terrible things he’s saying; there’s no way I’m posting them here. Be WARNED: His Twitter page is illustrated with a giant photograph of the severely injured Christy Mack.

What’s stranger than this outpouring of support from foul misogynistic shitheads is that War Machine is also getting what appears to be utterly sincere fans who think that he is the real victim here.

Meanwhile, this woman, whose thoughts proved too expansive for Twitter, gave the whole situation a New Age spin. Citing the so-called “Law of Attraction,” she argued that War Machine had only turned bad because he’d brought a bad person with bad energy into his life. That person being the woman he (allegedly) nearly killed.

I would sic a hardcore curriculum of LAW OF ATTRACTION on his ass.

I almost did… he read a book I sent him when he was in jail… and he seemed to turn things around for a while. But the material didn’t stick. It requires almost the same level of dedication and practice that MMA itself requires.

And Mack was just a huge fucking wrong turn for him.

“You are who you hang out with.”

“You become the thoughts you most repeatedly have.”

Mack gets fucked all the time = WM is now fucked. Big-time.

Blah.

#StopHangingOutWithLosers

I pray that the judge hates the porn industry…maybe her husband left her for a porn star… and maybe hence, the judge will have some sympathy for WM…lol.

I suppose I have to give this woman credit for originality. Victim blaming is more an art than a science, and this is artful indeed.

  1. If there is a hell, there has to be a special place for these people.

  2. NOPE NOPE NOPE

    Walking on Legos is too good for these monsters

  3. This is fucking terrible.

  4. The one silver lining is that the hashtag is not all THAT active; it’s not trending or anything. And some of the people posting in it are getting pushback. Still, what the hell is wrong with these people?

  5. Ah yes, Miss Mack, charged of the crimes of… being a woman, being a woman with sexual agency, being hittable, being plastic, being capable of making mistakes, being… well, just being.

    We find her guilty of being a person, I guess?

  6. It’s moments like these that I sense that the hatred I have for large swaths of humanity is inadequate.

  7. Mack gets fucked all the time = WM is now fucked. Big-time.

    Oh god I just felt something pop inside my brain
    this isn’t happening
    aaaaaaargh
    this can’t be happening

  8. I hope they throw his repugnant ass in prison for a long time. They probably won’t and he’ll prosper while Mack’s life is altered forever.

    You know, after reading this blog for over two years, it’s hard to shock me to the point where I just want to curl up in bed and not come out for the rest of the day. This did it. Everything is awful.

    Night.

  9. The only time “FreeWarMachine” should be a hastag is if Rhodey from Iron Man gets captured or something or to get him his own movie, not to defend this shitbag.

  10. Policy of Madness

    The “law of attraction” is one of the worst bits of woo to ever woo, and the people who promote it are horrible people.

  11. Words….failing….people….just so terrible….so terrible…

  12. You know what else bothers me? Apparently one can’t report a Twitter user named Diedie whose handle is @diejewdiejew. I mean SERIOUSLY. WTF, Twitter?

  13. That last one really put the finger on why I’m so uncomfortable with the positivity/law of attraction stuff. There’s always an element of victim blaming with it. Usually it’s not laid quite so bare though.

  14. Law of Attraction Lady reminds me of that chick who married Charlie Manson, only way viler and dumber

  15. Who knew that a law of the universe was dependent upon a specific double-meaning in english.

  16. I also notice that “Law of attraction” apparently doesn’t apply to WM’s MMA career. Constant violent thoughts in the ring surely would transfer outside of the ring, right? Surely WM has to own his own violence, right?

    It’s like evopsych seems a lot of the time; tell a creative enough story and you can justify anything.

  17. Off topic: I found a great meme to use on the many trolls that come here not realizing it’s a mockery blog

    https://i.chzbgr.com/maxW500/6142294784/hFCA301DA/

  18. @ theladyzombie – FWIW, the professional MMA leagues want nothing to do with him. One way or another, I think his prospering days are over.

  19. footnotegirl: I know, right? As soon as I saw that, I wondered why that guy hadn’t been banned a long time ago just because of his username and title.

  20. Blue Collar Nerd

    Sometimes I look at people and say “what a sad waste of food and oxygen”.

  21. Agreeing with Johanna Roberts here. “FreeWarMachine” should only exist as a hashtag in conjunction with Rhodes and Marvel Comics. This horrible excuse for a human being is besmirching the good name of James Rhodes, even if he is a fictional character.

  22. I reported the user @diejewdiejew to Twitter for his abusive @replies to Christy Mack. Perhaps if everyone does it…

  23. If Twitter cared at all about having a safe environment, Twitter wouldn’t be as bad as it is now. Twitter is not a safe environment, and the horse has bolted.

  24. I don’t think that this dumbfuck will prosper in any way, shape or form. His MMA days are over and the porn community wants nothing to do with him either, after he lost his shit and beat up several people, including his girlfriend at the time, as well as his agent. Aside from finding a fighter to train, I don’t see many avenues for the guy.

    I did hear someone cite the fact that she finds him attractive, as justification for her belief that he didn’t do it. The world never ceases to disappoint me.

    The Law of Attraction? Seriously?

  25. The problem is wider than just him though. Do you think the porn industry and the MMA industry will now have a permanent clean out of other guys similar to him?

  26. Mack gets fucked all the time = WM is now fucked. Big-time.

    Well, considering that he was in porn too, I guess that phrase really does cut both ways.

    And re: Law of Attraction, I’m a Wiccan. I don’t believe in that crap. I’m sure it does attract a lot of prosperity — and SUCKERS — for whoever wrote those books, though.

    And yeah, negative energy. When it’s all the guy puts out, what the hell does anyone expect? The man is one big gigantic fucking negative vibe.

  27. he read a book I sent him when he was in jail… and he seemed to turn things around for a while.

    Yep, cuz she can ‘fix’ him. What a dangerous waste of space.

  28. The Law of Attraction: Where everything is your own fault all the time no matter what. Except, if you’re War Machine or any other abusive guy. Then you’ll get LOTS of sympathy for some reason.

  29. “CM framed him”? Um, HOW? By being at home with a friend when he decided to drop by for an unannounced visit?

    These people are not only hateful, they’re fucking idiots.

  30. Also, the famous “I was framed” defence only works when someone else committed the offence. There is no question that he perpetrated the violence on her, ergo he wasn’t bloody framed.

    He wasn’t set up, or triggered, either. A reasonable person does not perpetuate (domestic) violence against another.

    To his defenders: you’re defending the use of excessive violence. You fail as human beings.

  31. Phoenician in a time of Romans

    Oh, but it gets worse. The most active commenter in the hashtag is a hyperbolically racist troll (in all senses of the word) whose name contains a racial slur. You’ll have to go through his history to see the terrible, terrible things he’s saying; there’s no way I’m posting them here. Be WARNED: His Twitter page is illustrated with a giant photograph of the severely injured Christy Mack.

    Well, he’s certainly a prince of a human being. Truly, I feel honoured to have this person speaking so eloquently on behalf of my gender and race.

  32. Yeah, these people are just evil. I really can’t express my contempt for those sympathetic to this abuser.

  33. So much ewwwww.

  34. Looks like I picked the wrong week to stop Ecstasy.

  35. The “Law of Attraction”…Woo-woo speak for the world is unfair and I can’t admit to myself that it’s not fair, because then I admit that bad stuff can happen to me and that’s scary.

    In WM’s case though? if he gets a long jail sentence that’s totally fair.
    If I deliberately drive 300 miles to beat the everloving crap out of someone and nearly kill them THERE IS NO EXCUSE FOR MY BEHAVIOR.

    Doesn’t matter whether that person was breaking vows of fidelity they made to me by humping every Tom, Dick, Harry, Jane, and Lisa. Doesn’t matter if that person dumped me hard. Does. Not. Matter.

    Nobody gets to pull this kind of crap and get away with it. I mean, WTF?

  36. @leftwingfox: I see your Airplane! reference.

    I made the mistake of using the cocaine line from that movie in one job only to discover that nobody realised the reference until I pointed it out to them…

  37. he read a book I sent him when he was in jail… and he seemed to turn things around for a while. But the material didn’t stick. It requires almost the same level of dedication and practice that MMA itself requires.

    HAHAHAHAHA…really? And I’m sure that the steroids he was taking to attain and maintain that physique, and his own pre-existing fucked-upness, had nothing to do with that slip. Nothing at all.

    These people. “Discipline”. I can’t even.

  38. I know it’s early in the thread, but it’s never too early to post kittehs for everyone:

  39. justabrowngirl

    Between all the racist/hatefull people coming out of the woodwork after what happened in Ferguson and now this…I can’t even deal.

    Just going to go frolic in a field of daisies….

  40. Ugh, that douchebag with the n-word in his name retweeted a photo of me winning a crew regatta. Now I guess all the MRAs on Twitter are going to call me fat.

  41. https://twitter.com/SSCWorldwide

    You’re right though, pallygirl. If Twitter lets folks set up accounts like this one there’s probably nothing you can’t write there.

  42. Twitter, still not fucking good enough:

    http://www.polygon.com/2014/7/30/5952135/twitter-harassment-problems

    http://www.theverge.com/2014/8/14/6002417/twitter-to-improve-harrassment-policies-after-zelda-williams-quits

    Twitter doesn’t understand online abuse against groups and focuses on intent: https://support.twitter.com/articles/15794-online-abuse#

    I don’t use Twitter. I’m really not interested in this type of abuse haven.

  43. the sheer amount of absolute garbage masquerading as human beings is why I dont have an account, I’d be too damn tempted to yell at them

  44. pallygirl, I used to do Twitter for a while. It just…never really clicked with me. I’m glad I didn’t stick around. That shit is unacceptable.

  45. Blahlistic, you nailed it. I really do not understand why this is so hard for some people to get.

    If I deliberately drive 300 miles to beat the everloving crap out of someone and nearly kill them THERE IS NO EXCUSE FOR MY BEHAVIOR.

    Doesn’t matter whether that person was breaking vows of fidelity they made to me by humping every Tom, Dick, Harry, Jane, and Lisa. Doesn’t matter if that person dumped me hard. Does. Not. Matter.

  46. focusing on intent seems a bit myopic on Twitter’s end. I won’t be investing all my dragon gold in them, for sure.

  47. I’m inordinately grateful to learn that this isn’t a big thing on Twitter right now. Not that it’s not awful enough that it exists, but I’m not sure I could deal with it if a bunch of MRAs actually rallied around this violent bully. Their ideology and his excuses do line up nicely, but I think it’s good that they can’t come right out and endorse what he did. It at least means that violent assaults on women aren’t openly acceptable yet, you still need some kind of denial or smokescreen. It’s not much, but it’s something. Ugh.

  48. Twitter needs to purge all the hate groups, or at least say they’re going to, like Facebook did. Effort, people, it’s needed badly!

  49. @blahlistic: WE CAN’T STOP HERE. THIS IS MRA COUNTRY.

  50. ….I can hear the cries of hundreds of voices of butthurt traditionalist men… coming out of the air….*grasps flyswatter tightly*

  51. And then there was silence.

    I can only fucking hope.

  52. zoon echon logon

    Can Marvel sue this guy for copyright infringement?

  53. Is War Machine even an Avenger?

  54. I’m increasingly coming round to the view that these people are really quite unpleasant.

  55. I wish I could say that any of this asshattery surprised me, but I’ve been a nurse too damn long and seen too much. This kind of BS happens all the time, just with less famous people, so no one other than the principals ever knows about it. George Carlin was right, the best most people can do for you is not kill you today.

    The assault was bad, but predictable (he has previous assaults). People defending him was bad, but predictable (there’s always a jerk who wants to victim blame. Always). And, now, there’s a woman who seems to think that she can fix him. I’ve seen this BS too often. I’ve watched over the dying while the police circled, hoping for a moment of clarity so they could get a statement and the whole damn hospital was on lockdown to prevent the perps from preventing that statement too damn often.

    I am so very tired.

    I also hope Christy Mack makes a totally miraculous complete recovery.

  56. Apparently I already have racist twitter guy blocked. Since I don’t recall interacting with him ever he must be on the list at http://www.theblockbot.com/

    The fact that tool exists really illustrates Twitter’s issue with abuse.

  57. OMG, did you see the link at the top of David’s tweet feed (on the sidebar)? Holy Hannah these guys are vile.

    And their “humor” is predictably toilet-worthy, too.

  58. emilygoddess - MOD

    Apparently there’s no one so vile and clearly in the wrong that someone, somewhere, won’t stand up for them.

  59. Well, considering that he was in porn too, I guess that phrase really does cut both ways.

    Oh, but men don’t get fucked, they fuck. Completely, totally different and of coruse mroally superior, like everything men do. Which is why men may own their women, and treat them like that if they “misbehave”.

    Arrgh! But it’s apaprent that is how those people think.

    The only consolation I see is that all those tweets seem to be written by teenaged analphabetes. So at least the strong correlation between holding those views and being extremely, incredibly stupid is readily apparent.

  60. That has got to be the ugliest meathead I’ve ever had the misfortune of laying eyes on. I hope he gets 20-life. What a waste of humanity.

  61. emilygoddess - MOD

    Hey now, there are plenty of ugly meatheads who aren’t wife-beating maybe-rapists.

  62. Another sad thing is that he’ll probably be treated like a hero in prison.

  63. Ok, this is terrible and I don’t get how anyone can defend this guy (with the exception of the poor sap nominated as his public defender, unless he gets a lawyer himself).

    This guy is a horrible person who did committed a horrible violent crime against another person.
