A collection of quotes of the veteran and terrorist Lewis Wilson.

The Punisher

Episode 1.01: 3 AM


"Sic semper tyrannis."
""Thus always to tyrants"? You really think our governments are tyrants, Lewis?"
"All I know is that we risked our lives and we did terrible things and it meant nothing when we got home."
―Lewis Wilson and Curtis Hoyle[src]

Episode 1.02: Kandahar

Spoken by Lewis Wilson

"I once took out a machine gun nest, saw this guy's head explode and all I thought was, "Good shot". I hated the enemy 'cause I had to, but I respected him, too. They don't haunt me. One of our Apaches hit some of our own. Friendly fire. There is no such thing. But it's war, right? Shit happens. Except I then saw some press officer pass it off to reporters as an enemy ambush. [...] All I could think was that it dishonored those men as soldiers. They were good at their jobs. They didn't get ambushed like assholes. It was a lie. When I dream, I see that guy. And it It's me that he is lying about. Me that he is turning into an asshole. Like it all meant nothing. What do you do when you can't trust your own?"

Episode 1.09: Front Toward Enemy

Spoken by Lewis Wilson

"The United States Government has become a tyrannical force, using its power to persecute teachers and citizens, trying them in a court like criminals for seeking to defend themselves as the Constitution allows. They wanna take away our guns, our freedom, and then we will be unable to defend ourselves. I have acted in defense of our liberty and identity. I have acted for all of us, to do what is right. You have championed the common hero before, Miss Page. I believe you understand that sometimes a man has to make a stand for what is right, what is true, even if the law stands against him. I ask you in the name of this country we love to print my words as a call to arms. If you do not, I will know you're one of them and you and everyone at your liberal paper will be on my list. Give me liberty, or give me death."
―Lewis Wilson's Letter[src]
