Hate Mail Of The Week: “Blood Money”
It isn’t the longest email you’ll ever read, but sometimes pithy and to the point beats spewing a thousand words of hatred.

please stop flooding the uniformed public with hateful propaganda. your fear mongering is tearing this nation apart. i hope you enjoy the blood money you make with these articles.
This is a magnificent piece of hate mail for two reasons.
#1) It gives me personal credit for “tearing this nation apart,” which I find kind of perversely flattering.
#2) It seems to assume that I’m much smarter than the average person, that I don’t believe what I’m saying, and that I am just spewing propaganda…for BLOOD MONEY. Again, it’s perversely flattering.
So, as far as hate mail goes, this is actually kind of a fun one.
