Keyboard Kommando Retreats from E-mail Assault

Overall being a contributor at OYE is pretty easy. I come across a gutless, love-to-hate joker and I write about them. Simple. Usually if I ever hear from one of these clowns they'll send me an email, call me an "asshole", I'd laugh, and that'd be the end of it.

Yet sometimes I strike comedic gold, as what happened when I recently received a tip about a potential Yellow Elephant. A chest-thumper at Political Byline posted a video of combat footage from the Iraq War and wrote "I love posting stuff like this, because makes the Paleo-Conservative cowards and the liberal sissies heads explode!"

Intrigued, I sent him the following email asking how he has supported the war other than being another Guardian of the Keyboard:
I just read your weekend "War Porn" post and it prompted me to ask you a few questions.

Are you a veteran? [If so, thank you for your service.] Are you in ROTC/OCS/something similar? [If so, thank you for your commitment.] Have you previously contacted a recruiter, but were not accepted for enlistment? [If so, thank you for stepping forward.] Do you know that you are not eligible to serve in our military, and therefore don't want to waste a recruiter's time? [If so, please let us know and we won't seek to contact you again.]

Otherwise, it would appear that you are eligible to serve in our military (healthy heterosexual well under 41), but have not. Have you at least considered it? What resulted from your deliberations? If you haven't even considered it, why not? How credible is your 'support' for the troops if you only want "other people" to actually to fight in the ongoing wars?We welcome your response for publication on our blog.

And this is the courageous response I received (bold in original).

I've looked at your blog. (it's called Google) and I see that you are a liberal. I have no intention of answering your question. Because I know the idiotic game that you are trying to play against me here and I am not interested in playing it. My personal life is none of your damned business.

Let me also warn you. You publish anything on that idiotic liberal blog of yours, that Ido not happen to like and I will SUE you in a court of law. A do not tolerate libelsagainst me and it seems your making a profit from smearing Conservatives. I will not tolerate it. I will sue, if need be. If you don't like what I write on my blog; then do not read it. Simple as that. You can criticize what I write, that is fine. But if you smear ME. I will SUE YOU. Period. I happen to have a good friend, who is a lawyer and will take my case pro-bono.

Further more, before you write and smear me. Know this. I am a unemployed, Disabled, man, who has not worked since 2005. Full time since 2000. I started blogging in 2006, As a "Left of center" blogger. I switched sides because of the bullshit that happened in this election.

Further more, do not contact me again, ever. If you do, I will file stalking charges against you as well.


A pro-boner lawyer? File stalking charges? Huh? Not very manly, I might add. Particularly after condemning others as "cowards" and "sissies". In fact it's probably reason enough for one to take a scalpel to his own testicles, say "I won't be needing these anymore" and be done with it.

NOTE: Contrary to what Patrick indicated I've never received any $ as a contributor to OYE. Besides, I make so much money from ACORN I would turn it down if offered.

Oh Wek, still turning nothing into something and nobody's into somethings.

You mean I'm just like Matt Drudge? Cool!

I wonder if Patrick's ever heard of anti-SLAP laws?

When are the wusses who so enthusiastically support this war going to share in the sacrifices? As Bruce Bartlett observes:

"If Americans aren't willing to follow John F. Kennedy and "pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship" to fight a war, then we shouldn't be fighting it."

Pat writes, "I started blogging in 2006, As a "Left of center" blogger. I switched sides because of the bullshit that happened in this election."

Which I interpret as, "I started blogging in 2006, As a "Left of center" blogger. I switched sides because no one on the Left was buying my vacuous inanity while conservatives are much more malleable sheep for my type of BS, e.g., Palin, Beck, etc."

Grr. Fucking spammers. Have a nice google bomb.

Nice catch, Wek, but be careful, those keyboard kommandos can be very threatening and mean. You wouldn't want him to call you names.

Aw, poor widdle Pat has the misfortune to have a lawyer friend who doesn't know the law about 'cyberstalking' and libel.

He's not going to be able to sue you for that.

"You publish anything on that idiotic liberal blog of yours, that Ido not happen to like and I will SUE you in a court of law."

Boy, I'd love to see that happen. Little Pat there would get a good lesson in what the first amendment is about, and it will be an expensive one too, as I suspect his lawyer friend might not want to face the results of filing a patently frivolous lawsuit.

Anyway, Pat seems pretty touchy for such a big tough man.

What was it Commander Codpiece said a few years ago?

"Bring It On"

I want to see which hot-shot lawyer Pat manages to get to take this case. My guess is that he will end up representing himself, thus thoroughly proving the old legal saying that a lawyer who represents himself has a fool for a client...

If you like Pat's response here, you should go to www.scienceblogs.com/dispatches/ and go through the archives and read some of his comments and some of Ed's posts about him. If you really like that, then you will love www.politicalbyline.com, Pat's blog. By the way he threatened to sue me for comments I posted to scienceblogs and even tracked down where I lived. He's so funny. Thanks, James
