Going forward, I think “Your An Idiot” will be the running title for hate mail posts. It nicely captures the correlation between level of vitriol and concentration of spelling/grammatical errors you tend to find in hate mail/comments.
So to kick things off, my Huffington Post piece yesterday brought some fun hate mail from the right. Which is a refreshing change of pace from the Koch brothers-themed hate mail and nasty comments from the left over the last few months. Of course, nothing in the piece expressed any support for the ideology or the goals of the Occupy movement. It was just an article about how they’re using technology. But who cares! People like to be angry!
A sampling ([sics] all around):
I am appalled by your lack of integrity. You quoted someone from the Cato Institute but didn’t reveal that you also worked for them. You also didn’t reveal that while they pretend to be conservatives, they are really George Soros peacenicks, homos, and potheads (your probably all three) who wear ties to disguise themselves.
I read your article with interest but I was waiting for the REASON the police had to act. You in the media have been trying your best to equate this rabble with the Tea Party so can you please name the times , dates and places were Tea Party “protesters” clashed with the police?
I no longer watch network TV nor read any newspapers and least of all this so-called “news” outlet. I read this one to reassure myself that nothing has changed, you are all ideologues and left-leaning swine.
If you think cell phone snippets of “police brutality” accurately depict what is happening, you probably think Jurassic Park is a documentary of living dinosaurs on a real island, after all we actually saw dinosaurs killing people.
You’re kidding, right?
Will these rich kids, unionists, criminals and just-plain-nuts types show the footage of THEM-
– urinating on police cars
Throwing glass and metal at police-
defacating in people’s yards-
bullying, harrassing property[read taxpayers] owners?
These idiots scream against the rich-all the while shoving each other out of the way to stand next to fatass Michael Moore-
They rant against Wall St/business owners as being “too rich”.-Who do these idiots think supply jobs?
They whine about oil /petroleum companies-while they hold their plastic Starbucks cup-and text on their I phones/pads/blackberry’s.
This is the TYPICAL entitlement mentality of the Left.
And this is EXACTLY why you all will have a RUDE awakening Nov.12. Let me guess what YOU’RE doing right now………reading your article on your PETROLEUM- based unit-hoping you get noticed by the RICH Huff-HO herself.
Then there is the phonys documented who stand there and yell and scream at the police like they are witnessing abuse that is not taking place so they can splice it into old tapes to make it LOOK like the police are mistreating them. All staged.
“Hey Mr. Soros, can you send more money and Twinkies? I love it down here man. By the way George, why aren’t we protesting on your front lawn. Oh, I get it! You’re one of the 99% like us.”
I particularly like the responses that address me as “Sir,” just before calling me swine or a “morale degenerate.” Also, I would just like to say that if Cato were to change its motto to Peaceniks, Homos, and Potheads Who Wear Ties, this alone would make it the greatest non-profit organization in the history of non-profit organizations.
