We do love hate mail.
Dan Hull sent us this gem a few days ago. He didn’t pass the spam filter, but we rescued it from oblivion before it got kicked to the curb and we’re certainly glad we did.
Dan’s been busy working himself up into a frenzy, upset that we are working to support the goals and ideals of the nation’s founding fathers instead of working to recreate past tyrannies.
Here is Dan’s ugly missive, in all its glory!
In your newsletter it states the American Revolution started because guns were taken away. Absolutely made up like all your supposed facts. You must be a big fan of fox news as they are famous at making facts up to fit their needs. The revolution was about taxation and no representation for the colonists. In looking at the picture of your meeting all that was missing was the little SS badges on your collar points. Newtown was not just a madman who went nuts those were LEGAL guns that were used to kill kids. But you would kill many kids for your right to own machine guns, cop killer bullets and large capacity magazines so you can feel like men. Nothing can get done when reasonable people are attacked when their opinion differs from yours. The nra Gestapo makes sure you all stay in line and say Sieg Heil at the correct times.
There’s just so much stupid there, tempting us to pick it apart and refute it.
We know, however, that facts and logic don’t matter to bigots like Dan.
Dan relies on feelings and emotions in his decision-making and we’re obviously making him uncomfortable at us challenging his beliefs.
Dan: Should you someday become a more fully informed individual, it will free you from the gun control plantation. You’ll be a free man instead of a slave.
You’ll also be a real man. Maybe even a man enough to be capable of defending your loved ones from violent attack instead of going big potty in your shorts as you cower when bad men want to hurt you or your family.
