Chris Kyle; RIP

| February 3, 2013

Since I knew about it before most people, you’d think I’d have dealt with it by now. But I haven’t. I’ve been staring at an empty screen for more than two hours wondering what I could write. I never met Chris Kyle, but after reading his book, you get a sense that you have met him.

But, last night, I got a call from someone who wanted us to help the police find Kyle’s killer. I was stunned when he gave me the news. I have no idea who it was that called, but he had access to police message traffic, so, you know, I can guess. So I called the sheriff’s department and they confirmed for me that the incident had indeed happened, but they wouldn’t confirm that Kyle was involved.

But, anyway, I guess they caught Eddie Routh, Kyle’s killer. According to some of our Marines with access to the Marines On Line database, Routh is a corporal and a unit armorer and currently in the Individual Ready Reserve – that status you do before you get out of the service.

According to Fox News, Routh was apprehended near Lancaster, TX at about 9:30 local time last night after shooting Kyle and his neighbor in the back and fleeing the scene in a pickup belonging to one of his victims, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

Now, if you don’t want to get pissed off, you should stop reading here. I cruised over the Huffington Post and read some of the comments those tiny-brained morons were leaving and, of course, it’s all about gun control and veterans. And of course, they tell us that Kyle’s death was karma for killing more than 150 insurgents. Twitchy logged some of the “tweets” from the Leftist ghouls yesterday celebrating the death and standing on his body for their political agenda.

Here’s an example;

  1. Putin says:

    I fought along your Armies in 1st Gulf War. You are cowards.

  2. PintoNag says:

    What’s the old term? Low theater? Something like that. All I can say is, somebody left the door open. Again.

  3. Hondo says:

    Putin: no one here cares about the opinion of an old Marxist who doesn’t know reality from a Rocky movie or a drug-addled dream, zhopa. Get lost.

  4. Twist says:

    Russia didn’t participate in the 1st Gulf War.

  5. Valmont says:

    Ooh! M. Putin has misspelled his name. It is actually Putain.

  6. Hondo says:

    ObamaGirl: given the photos posted elsewhere on this site of Jonn and his wife, you just once again proved your stupidity.

    And remember: you’re the only one playing the race card above. The rest of us are reading your comments and thinking, “She can’t actually be that dumb.”

  7. Twist says:

    I know I just married a Hispanic woman to hide my racism. sarc/

  8. Valmont says:

    Hondo: Ça, c’est les frites au fromage et sauce. M. le Putain est tout grand dadais.

  9. Just Plain Jason says:

    OG I was trying to give you an out to stop the pain…this really hurts. You are now pointing around calling everyone racists. I know it is the last act of a desperate man…I don’t care if this is the first act of Henry the V.. so you get… NOTHING!!! You lose! GOOD DAY, SIR! Mr. Madison, what you’ve just said … is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul…

    YOU LOSE!!!!! Call it a day…go home…forget it…for fucks sake you have nothing to add.

    (I know I blatantly ripped off three movies to make this frankenquote up)

  10. Hondo says:

    (chuckling) Valmont: Missed that the first time. But I think “poutine” is apropos, too. In his case, made with leftover stale fries, week-old gravy, and moldy cheese.

  12. Smaj says:

    Rest In Peace Chris Kyle. It is sad that slimy provocateurs hijacked this thread meant to honor Chief Kyle. Calling those they disagree with “racists” and “bullies” is the default position of the left when reason and facts don’t go their way.

  13. NHSparky says:

    OG, OG, OG, you silly bint. Come around my family as we gather each Christmas and call me a racist. I and my family would laugh our asses off at you.

    Much like I laugh my ass off at pretty much every idiotic statement you make. I’ve always wondered what kind of statements and insanity come from the mind of a tertiary syphilis patient. Now I know.

  14. MCPO NYC USN (Ret.) says:

    Yo Oblama Gurl …

    You still have not answered my inquiry:

    @249 Obama Girl

    Why would you suggest: “shouldn’t you be stopping and frisking poor black and latinos”.

    The improper, insensitive, and careless use of such demonyms clearly proves that you are a “Race Baiter” and a “Racist”.

    Personally, the use of such words is not in my lexicon.

    But thanks for trying!

  15. PintoNag says:

    Harry, sweetie, if you’re going to insult us, at least use an insult we understand. I believe the correct term for it is “ventilating.” Otherwise, it makes it sound like he was good at playing the machines in Vegas.

    And exactly what would you know about great Americans?

  16. MCPO NYC USN (Ret.) says:

    Jonn, Hondo … who is this Harry above and where are they blathering from?

  17. NHSparky says:

    It was great Americans who kicked the shit out of his ancestors so we could form our own nation, and it was great Americans who saved his worthless ass twice in the last century, as well as keeping them from all having to learn Russian afterwards.


  18. Harry says:

    Great Americans? Does the word oxymoron have any signifigance on your side of the pond?

  19. Twist says:

    @324, Yep, just like dental hygene is an oxymoron on your side of the pond.

  20. Harry says:

    You’ve watched too much “Saving Private Ryan”, chav. We kept the Nazis at bay long before your yob grandparents got off their arses and got involved. If you want to know what stopped Hitler it was a little thing called Operation Barbarossa.

  21. Twist says:

    It was the pressure from the Eastern front that pulled off some of the pressure on the Soviets that allowed them to reorganize and counter attack.

  22. Harry says:

    The Soviets won that bloody war, you yanks were a paltry sideshow by comparison.

  23. Harry says:

    Why don’t you search for Lyudmila Pavlichenko? Now there’s a sniper who actually slotted bad guys, not third world teens aiming a rocket launcher backwards. A true hero, and she did it without all that fancy bollocks you have today.

  24. Twist says:

    If the “yanks” where a “paltry sideshow” that makes you nothing but a vender selling peanuts to the crowd.

  25. Hondo says:

    Harry the Poofter above appears to be posting from the London area. Probably one of the crowd who was recently protesting having to (gasp!) actually pay something towards their own college education vice get it free (AKA the British equivalent of the OWS movement).

    It’s telling that he appears to idolize those in the proverbial “dustbin of history”. Hey Harry: sod off, ye bloody arsewipe.

  26. MCPO NYC USN (Ret.) says:

    Harry is British:


    Who the “F” uses such words? The British …

    Twist … you got the “dental hygene” thingy spot on!

  27. MCPO NYC USN (Ret.) says:

    Ah Ha ….

  28. rb325th says:

    Russkie who learned British English…

  29. Hondo says:

    Oh, and Poofter-boy Harry: in comparison to this guy, Pavlichenko was a piker:

    I believe all of those he offed were Soviets engaged in a war of aggression against his country, too.

  30. Hondo says:

    Harry: we all end up dead, fool. We all pass into history.

    In Chief Kyle’s case, people will remember him and honor his memory. He did something worthwhile, and which mattered. You’re an annoyance and of no consequence.

    In your case, no one will know – or care – when you’re gone.

    Except for the dogs. The dogs will remember you when they use your grave as a loo.

  31. MCPO NYC USN (Ret.) says:

    rubbish = British Trash = Harry
    bin = empty container = Harry head

  32. Hondo says:

    rb325th: maybe, but I’d guess not. The UK has plenty of home-grown Commutards.

  33. MCPO NYC USN (Ret.) says:

    goatherder with AK-47 = Sniper’s target of opportunity

  34. Harry says:

    I don’t knw him, but he sounds a good deal more educated than your stupid, smelly arse.

  35. PintoNag says:

    Harry’s aggravated because we got involved before Hitler taught ’em how to speak German.

    Oh, and Harry dearest? My father helped save your lovely country.

    You’re so welcome. Any time, just give us a ring. We absolutely adore helping worthless scabs who don’t remember who their friends are.

  36. MCPO NYC USN (Ret.) says:

    Dearest Harry,

    If you would please keep my smelly arse out of this epic display of international verbal intercourse. I have a medical condition which permits such noxious displeasures.

    With respect to your tomfoolery and paltry attempts to humor, bait, and or other wise bother us from across the pond … Kiss My Royal Irish Ass!

  37. Harry says:

    There’s a little thing called the Battle of Britain, maybe you’ve heard of it? Actually maybe you haven’t, I know yank schools aren’t worth a shite. Now sod off, and let the grown-ups talk. Nevermind, I’m the only one here.

  38. Hondo says:

    PintoNag: actually, I think Harry’s simply jealous because he’s seen a few US porn flicks and realizes that he’s . . . . underwhelming in comparison to even a below-average Yank.

    But I could be wrong. (smile)

  39. Harry says:

    Mcpo, if I had one of your worthless American dollars for everytime I ran into some lame plastic paddy like yourself on holiday from the states I’d be as rich as the prince I share my Christian name with.

  40. Hondo says:

    Harry: oh, you mean that little aerial squabble when Hitler quit prematurely – about 2 weeks before the RAF ran out of pilots? Yeah, we heard about that.

    The RAF fought valiantly. But they were indeed about 2 weeks or so away from collapse when Hitler called off Sea Lion. That – and not the Battle of Britain – is why you’re not speaking German today, fool.

    When you’re fighting a nation run by a strategic novice who won’t listen to his professional military advisers, sometimes you get lucky.

  41. Anonymous says:

    I guess Harry forgot that there where British snipers in Iraq

  42. PintoNag says:

    @347 😉

    Now HARRY is a troll. I adore them. Cheap entertainment, and no need to worry about their feelings. They don’t have any.

  43. MCPO NYC USN (Ret.) says:

    It is MCPO … as in Master Chief Petty Officer, you slobbering disease inflicted socialist wanker!


  44. MCPO NYC USN (Ret.) says:

    BTW … I hear the Queen likes Irishmen!

    Not because we are so BIG … because she can have her tea, biscut and an Irishman all at the same time!


  45. Ex-PH2 says:

    Having fun over there at the Snack & Surf, are you, Harry? Or is it the Khyrat?

  46. Twist says:

    I find it ironic that the guy basicaly calling Americans assholes is the same guy that came on a memorial thread being a dick.

  47. MCPO NYC USN (Ret.) says:

    I think the Queen satire angered him. He probably went to the pub and then reported me to a bobbie, who in turn filed a “Report of Offensive Offensives Against thy Queen” report (3 carbon copies, white goes to Buckingham Palace, yellow goes to bobbie, and pink goes to the pub).

  48. Hondo says:

    Actually, MCPO, Harry the Wanker here seems to have pissed Jonn off enough to get moderated. It’s Jonn’s call on whether or not we ever hear from Wanker-boy again.

  49. NHSparky says:

    Harry, having been to London on several occasions, might I say this about your overpriced, overcrowded, pretentious asshole of a city and its inhabitants:

    Piss off. We’re here to remember someone who you wouldn’t even qualify to be a boil on his ass. And remember him we will. Not for who he “slotted”, but for the sacrifices he made for his nation and for his comrades-in-arms.

    Would that you had one-thousandth the character, honor, and integrity of Chief Kyle.
