Wow. Proud Moment for a Small-Time Blogger.

Just got my first real threat related to this blog, through the U.S. Mail.

It was sent anonymously. There are basically three candidates for this: two long shots, and the person I suspect is behind it.

Naturally, once I realized what it was I stopped handling it, to preserve any fingerprints.

Dear Coward: You are a coward. How do you feel about that?

It was me.

I meant to send it to Attila the Nun, a radical religious blogger from San Luis Obispo.

Your names are, like, RIGHT next to each other in my address book.

Sorry for the confusion.

Oh, hey, Jeff--should have known it was you.

Correction: You're a short coward—with amazing verbal prowess.

Posted by: Attila Girl at October 13, 2006 04:27 PM

Come on, share,... I could use a good laugh. Anonymous(e) letters are the acts of cowards hoping to intimidate. They think it will work because it would on them.

You know you're near the target when you start taking flak.

Posted by: Jack at October 13, 2006 06:40 PM

OH wait,..... I thought about it for a minute,... I think I know who you are suspecting. Last name wouldn't start with an "H" would it? Wait, don't say,... it only gives him a little woody to think he accomplished something. Let him inflate his lover on his own.

Turn it over to the FBI. No one should take threats lightly. And the guilty party should meet our legal system.

Don't forget those religious cult people you are always p***ing off. It isn't from Valparaiso, Indiana, is it?

I'll be filing a report with the L.A. Sheriff's office tomorrow, per my husband's wishes. I'd certainly like to get the thing dusted for prints.

It does seem that there are a lot more people making violent threats these days than there were even five years ago. I just put up a post on this; Goon Squad: The Dawning Age of the Thug?

I think you're not working at it. Michelle Malkin is always posting some of her hate mail. I think Ann Coulter actually used it to write a book.

You need to really piss them off and see how much hate mail you can get.

p.s. Gun control is hitting your target.

Posted by: Jack at October 14, 2006 06:16 PM

Last name starts with H from Indiana, let me guess hmmm. I just saw this! I think you guys are right, I am some what of a threat, but not to Attila the individual. You are all being threatened by my ideas. By logic and reason and simple facts. Now here is what I see, if you want me to stop posting here all you have to do is ASK. But you won't because you want to Appear to be a champion of free speach. In actuality, you all would like me to take my contribution, and contribute elsewhere. It bothers you that someone with limited reading skills, english as a second language, coming from a third world country, might have more to contribute to your culture and to your country. Perhaps you are ashamed, that I challenge you on your knowledge, your low standards, your lack of simple human decency and etiquette. But I think I have made a difference to you all. I have made you look inside and perhaps next time when you will discriminate on the basis of religion or culture or race, you will think about me. We have established a relationship, an adversarial one unfortunately, but nonetheless a relationship.
What I have learned in the process, is that human beings can always strive for something better. You can put a sack of potato in the dark and it will try to shoot its roots towards the light. What I have learned about myself,is that in America, there are a lot of opportunities, but also the people here will say one thing and practice and think another. You want free speach, but only to say what you want. When someone says something you do not like, you would rather have them shut up, then to think about what is being said. It makes it hard to be heard, when people are sitting with their fingers in the ears. Yelling Not listening!
I know that for some of you this is your livelyhood, and by posting ideas contrary to your ideology I may be costing you your job. I appologize for that. But maybe attila can get her funding from the other party after Nov 7. You can use me as a reference. And Darrell, well you can always go on the injury list and collect those insurance dollars.


Azmat (his real name)
Who hasn't even got a parking ticket. And does not speak good english! Oh heck I should just post my social security number.

Posted by: azmat hussain at October 15, 2006 03:10 AM

Whatchu talkin' bout, Azmat?

We'll see how the election goes. The lyin' MSM(the official house organ of the Democrat party) has predicted a sweep for the Dems every two years since "The Cotrract with America"... They might be correct one day--but they will never be right.

Posted by: Darrell at October 15, 2006 06:16 AM

Oh, good heavens, Azmat. No one ever seriously considered you: Jack thought perhaps it was R.L. Hymers--last name begins with H--and then Darrell joked about Indiana, but was also clearly suggesting the Hymers cult.

Please, please: if I ever consider banning you, I'll send you a note first. But I haven't contemplated doing such a thing, and doubt I ever will; I think you add to the debate on this site.

Posted by: Attila Girl at October 15, 2006 08:32 AM

It wasn't me.

Posted by: clyde at October 16, 2006 06:33 AM

Now about that social security number..and your mother's maiden name...Just kidding(humor isn't always universal). Your member names, passwords, and PIN numbers will do.

Posted by: Darrell at October 16, 2006 07:58 AM

Hey Darrell,
you got some inside info on Nov 7 I could use. Is it DBD (Diebold) the stock after crashing is taking off again. The call options for Nov 6 are only .10 big bucks to be made if GOP survives this election. I am a contrarian, I am betting on Macaca, he got some good free publicity from Chris Mathews.

Posted by: azmat hussain at October 16, 2006 06:01 PM

Yeah, vote Republican. And stay away from the DU and those Kos Kidz.
Or were you just lying when you told us you made the switch. I'd be just shocked if that were the case.

Posted by: Darrell at October 16, 2006 08:20 PM

I am a taxpayer who cannot vote.
After living in USa for six years, paying about $30,000 to Lawyers, for immigration, paying local state and federal taxes to the tune of $200K . I am still not close to getting my green card. Seems like I gotta wait till the Dems get elected for my kind to be invited to become a citizen.
So I thought I should vote for them, but then that would be illegal, and I can't really afford to do that.

I do intend to join the Republican party, and bring all my indian and pakistani friends to the convention. That is the only way we can get rid of the racist language in this party, see we got to participate and remind those leaders who use inappropriate language, how else would they know.

About Joy W. McCann: I've been interviewed for Le Monde and mentioned on Fox News. I once did a segment for CNN on "Women and Guns," and this blog is periodically featured on the New York Times' blog list. My writing here has been quoted in California Lawyer. I've appeared on The Glenn and Helen Show. Oh—and Tammy Bruce once bought me breakfast.
My writing has appeared in
The Noise, Handguns, Sports Afield, The American Spectator, and (it's a long story) L.A. Parent. This is my main blog, though I'm also an alumnus of Dean's World, and I help out on the weekends at Right Wing News.
My political philosophy is quite simple: I'm a classical liberal. In our Orwellian times, that makes me a conservative, though one of a decidedly libertarian bent.
