We Got Mail!

• Views: 1,087

The hate mail is pouring in from enraged Paulians. Most of it is pretty unimaginative stuff; you know the drill, “f*ck you,” “Jew lover,” “moron,” etc.

But here are three of the most interesting and/or crazy ones. Please note that these were sent with our contact form, and there is a very explicit note underneath that form saying that “messages may be published unless you request otherwise.” Well, none of them requested otherwise, so let the chips fall where they may.

First up we have a very angry guy in upstate New York, who followed a link from The Daily Paul and seems to think I’m a lazy hippie. (OK, I might have been a hippie once, but damn, that was a long time ago. But lazy? Aw, that really smarts.) This one has the subject line “Dribble.” Heh. Maybe he thinks I’m a lazy hippie who plays for the Knicks?

This is the dumbest dribble I have ever read. Can you guys please go get jobs and stop with the crap? I know you want the government to support your ass forever and you are scared that will stop. How about you get out of your parents basement and help out, might actually bring you back from fantasy land. You sit around wondering why your freedom and finances are going away yet you slander the best chance you have to get both back. Your lack of knowledge on how money and government work is astounding. You could have the world you want if you started to understand how it works….work bring the word you should focus on. $500.00…from Nazi’s…please spare me, is this best you can muster? Ron Paul 2008! Let’s get the lazy hippies out of their parent’s basements!

Okey dokey. Moving right along, we have admirer #2, who hails from Minnesota, and thoughtfully included his name and city of residence. I’m too nice, because I’ll redact his name and city from his lovely little note, which came with the subject line, “Bottom Feeders.”

That’s the only way I can describe you.

Smear artist NeoCon bottom feeding warmongerers.

Of course you know how many photos and how many autographs a candidate gets, but you just can’t help but smear Ron Paul.

I like him more and more everyday, and thanks to people like YOU.

I used to have a modicum of respect, however, you’re nothing but a stain on my former Grand Party.

In fact, the RATS really don’t have anything on you.

There’s a law in the universe called Sowing and Reaping.

You’re planting bad seed.

[Name and address removed.]

PS Have you met a quisling you didn’t slobber over yet?

Mmm. Quisling.

And finally, we have a short but sweet note from someone who followed a link from Dave Weigel’s silly post at Reason.com, with the phony return address “f*ckyou@mailinator.com” (hey, that’s good! use a mailinator.com address on a contact form!), and the subject line “Go F*ck Yourself.”

EOM

Obviously, this one intended to send no message at all, discovered the contact form wouldn’t allow that, and was too full of impotent rage to think of anything except “EOM.”

The interesting part about this last love note is that Mr. F*ckyou used his company internet connection to send it. Remember that part about “messages may be published?” Well, that goes double for people who write things like that. Ironically, when I traced the IP address, I discovered that this Ron Paul fan works for a web design agency in Philadelphia called Empathy Lab. (And yes, I notified them about what one of their employees is doing on company time.)
