Abby Martin, the American host of Breaking the Set on RT America network posted a photo of herself wearing a T-shirt that clearly says “F*&k Chris Kyle.”
She has not said exactly why she has made this disgusting t-shirt, but was shocked that she received death threats for it.
It is no surprise that this former activist, who is dead set on undermining our military and police, was hired to host a show on the Russia Today’s (RT) American channel.
According to US News, Russia has aggressively pursued expanding their American media offerings to “challenge the ‘aggressive propaganda that is being fed to the world, that propagandizes and imposes a unipolar construct of the world.’”
“Since its foundation in 2005, RT (once known as Russia Today) has demonstrated impressive growth as a state-funded, soft-power tool to counter misconceptions about Russia abroad. In 2009 it expanded from Moscow to the U.S., with its first branch in Washington. By 2011, RT was one of the most watched international news channels in the United States. Last year, it became the first television channel to break a billion views on YouTube.”
Surprisingly, Abigail (Abby) Suzanne Martin campaigned for John Kerry, a Vietnam veteran, during his presidential campaign in 2004. It can be assumed her support was based upon Kerry’s campaign promises to end the Iraq War.
She has been outspoken about being anti-war and is a supporter of the 9/11 Truth Movement. She has even gone as far as saying, “I’ve researched it for three years and every single thing that I uncover solidifies my belief that it was an inside job and that our government was complicit in what happened.”
Last year, her anti-war rhetoric landing her a front seat view in Crimea when she “Just because I work here, for RT, doesn’t mean I don’t have editorial independence and I can’t stress enough how strongly I am against any military intervention in sovereign nations’ affairs.”
According to the telegraph, Russia Today sent her to Crimea to “better her knowledge” of the situation after she spoke out against Russia’s military invasion in Ukraine.
She has yet to respond to our request for an apology to Chris Kyle’s family for her T-shirt.
