#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.

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?

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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?

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?

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.

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.

“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.

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.

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?

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

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

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.
