Hate Mail of the Day
My post yesterday about House Republicans voting against reality prompted a reader in Salt Lake City to fire up Internet Explorer 9 and use our contact form to communicate his carefully considered opinions about my criticisms of GOP climate change denial. (Warning: profanities left intact to preserve the full aroma.)
At 9:37 am, about 4 minutes after landing on our front page, he found exactly the right words:
are you a fag? you look and sound like a fucking fag. do u like dick in mouth and up your fat ass? I believe you do. do u enjoy swallowing cum? bet you do. I think your gayness causes global warming.
And yet, as concise as that statement clearly was, he remained unsatisfied. There was more inside him, crying out to be shared.
Six minutes later another email arrived from the same person, with the obviously fake return address ‘firstname.lastname@example.org’ and the title ‘climate change science’ (hey! he tricked me into reading it by flattering me! doh!), expanding on this critique:
nice to know morons like you believe in junk science motivated by political correctness and left wing agenda. climate change is real alright, but it’s cyclical, not man caused. and THAT, is true science you fucking tool. I suppose you believe we caused the first ice age too? and the ice then to melt as well? what a useful idiot you and your pathetic little site has become. thanx for destroying our economy, and our human rights. asshat loser.
Unfortunately, since he used fake email addresses I can’t enter into an exchange of opinions with this gentleman, perhaps to our mutual enlightenment; more’s the pity.
