War Machine: American Men Are Treated Worse than 'Jews in Nazi Germany'

MMA fighter Jon Koppenhaver (better known as War Machine) was the sports media's number one hot topic last week after he allegedly gravely assaulted his ex-girlfriend, pornstar Christy Mack, and her new boyfriend Corey Thomas in Las Vegas.

After evading police for an entire week, Koppenhaver was finally arrested on Saturday and is to be to extradited to Nevada for his connection in the brutal attack. He was arrested at a hotel in California, where, reports witness Nicole Blankenship, he was reprimanded after police were forced to use a taser on him.

"Prosecutors in Las Vegas filed multiple felony battery, assault and coercion charges that could get Koppenhaver a total of more than 25 years in prison if he is convicted. He also faces a misdemeanor lewdness count involving the groping of Mack," according to a report from the Boston Herald.

Mack was severely injured after the attack, with several broken bones, a ruptured liver, and missing teeth.

This, however, is not War Machine's first brush-in with the law.

In 2010, the MMA fighter served a prison sentence for an intensely violent bar brawl in San Diego. During his incarceration, War Machine operated a prison blog, where he spoke about the "oppression" of American males.

According to the Daily Telegraph:

The oppression of MEN is worse than oppression of Jews in Nazi Germany, worse than the slavery of blacks in early America ... I'm not exaggerating either.

Every Jew and every black man, both in jail and those who have managed to avoid it, will attest to what I have just (written).

There is one guy in here for slapping his wife, one here for yelling at his wife, and one here for beating some guy's a-- that disrespected his wife. WTF!? If your wife is being a b---- you can't slap her, if your wife is yelling at you, God forbid you yell back, and if some a--hole hurts your wife, you cannot protect her!

Next thing you know it will be illegal to f--- your wife! LMAO! Maybe then, MEN in this country will get the f---ing hint and MOVE! This country forces you to be a b----! And then you go to jail!

Obviously, the man's views on men and women are deranged, not to mention his account of history. To compare men being imprisoned for beating their wives to Jews being slaughtered by the Nazis, or black men being enslaved by plantation owners, is more than far-fetched. I'm not sure there's even a word to describe it.

Also, considering the treatment of men in other parts of the world like Syria and Iraq, American men really aren't the ones that should be complaining.

As it seems that, as he is most likely guilty for his actions, we might be seeing a new prison blog from War Machine soon, albeit, with way more followers. Looking forward to whatever other ramblings on men and oppression he'll treat us to once he's incarcerated.
