Over the years, I’ve gotten a smattering of hate mail from people who detest my views of the Mideast conflict or various other subjects about which I blog. While I don’t have the thickest skin, I pride myself that I can take that sort of thing in stride when it comes my way. But the e mail I received below from one of my blog readers is just about as far “out there” as you can go. Not only is this guy an anti-Semite (yes, if you hate Arabs like this guy does it isn’t that far from the type of anti-Semites who hate Jews), he’s vile and of course infantile.
For the love of God, how can one human being hate over 200,000 innocents who died in such a terrible act of nature? And how can one human being not only have no mercy on their souls, but indeed hate them so? And of course he’s completely wrong about those who died being Muslims. . They were Muslims, Buddhists, Christians and of many other religions.
I wanted to keep a record for myself and my readers so that they could see the type of hateful bile that is spewed by someone like James King. And in case you wonder which “kids” he’s calling “ugly,” those would be my wonderful 2 month old twins who I’ve already featured here in photos. Oh & I guess I included his e mail address just as he listed it in his e mail to me. Isn’t that how e mails get picked up by spam bots?? Oh my, I think I’ve violated one of those rules of internet etiquette! Spam bots are you listening?
Hey, Dick-head: Your photos are shit; of course, when your subjects are as ugly as those kids, maybe it ain’t your fault.
Your world views are kindergarten. I won’t give a penny to tsunami victims. Most of the victims are Muslims who’d like nothing better than to cut off your addled, infidel head. They cost us billions on 9/11. Cumbaya? No; yippy-ki-yay!

Wow. That comment was simply… stunning.
Perhaps he was referring to the seminal book, Everything I Need to Know In Life I Learned In Kindergarten? Clearly, he missed the part about playing nicely with others.
I highly recommend that you make a donation to a tsunami relief organization in his honor… and make sure they let him know about it.
it’s just that kind of people that would make establishing peace on
this earth an “impossible mission” ,every human life is precious
whatever it’s race or religion and as sir richard said tsunami victims
belong to different faiths ( it’s obvious that death is not racist!! )
and i think it’s a shame to feel sorrow about the billions of dollars lost
in the 9/11 attacks neglecting the real lost of 3000 souls ,not only
he’s infantile ,impolite he’s also ignorant , by the way the kids are
beautifuls and the unique thing that i find ugly is the heart of this
“james king”.thank you.

So 2 people actually read Siverstein’s dull blog? Dicky, you are the classic, wimpering liberal who can’t face reality. Don’t call me a racist…that’s so typical of people who disagree with libs. We’re either dumb, racist, whatever. Nobody cares about your opinions, Silvia, but blog away. The only reason I stumbled over it was through research on the tsunami victims. It’s amusing to me that you are still trying to deal with me. Thanks!
PS: If your 2 blubbering readers want to e-mail me, great!
Richard Silverstein says
I didn’t call you a racist though since you brought the term up…if the shoe fits, wear it!
Actually, 350 unique visitors visit my blog every day. Instead of stalking my blog [I’ve deleted several personally hateful comments from King, but he just keeps coming back with new IP addresses every time I ban one], why don’t you start your own. Let’s see how much of an audience your strange & twisted views would attract.
Certainly, the odd fellow writing the hateful blog ” A Proud Tsunami Sympathizer” (yes, I’m sorry to say there actually is a piece of crap like this out there in the blogosphere) would be one of your first (& only?) readers.
Actually, I’m not hoping that my readers e mail you. I’m really hoping every spambot in the world picks up your e mail address & floods your Inbox with the same type of garbage you spew all over the web.
