And you get the last word. I wish you well.

You do need help, because there’s never been any fomenting of violence by Ms. B or Ms. P.

Don’t even try to slither back under the rock of moral relativism. Your vitriol was directed in one direction and one direction only.

On the other hand you guys on the left saw no problem with a movie advocating the assassination of President Bush.

On the other hand, the shooter listed “The Communist Manifesto” among his favorite books-clearly not a favorite of RedState, and was referred to as “left wing” and a “pothead” by a classmate. The more that comes out about him seems not only to make your case that you are “not the brightest bulb in the box”, but that despite the knowledge of those limits, you rush to a judgment which is manifestly incorrect.

Message boards don’t hurt anybody except those people who favor abrogating the First Amendment.

Dear Adam,
Actually, I have corresponded with Daily Kos telling them that I think they’re hurting us. You know, I’ve long known that no party has the corner on the market of incendiary rhetoric. And I know they’ve disagreed — they just didn’t publish my e-mail to get people all riled up and motivated to send me notes, which is fine. I’m a big girl and I can take it. From what I observe, there’s a nastiness that gets played out whenever we disagree and I just see it coming more often these days from the right. No doubt you think my letter to the editor was more of the same. I won’t try to dissuade you of that.
And it might surprise you to learn that I’m not thrilled with everything the president does either. You may not see it now, but at some point, I suspect you will. Red State, Daily Kos, the message boards on many political sites, they hurt us. All of them. And yes, those ladies from Nevada and Minnesota espousing violence is crazy. And it’s crazy not to point that out.
I sincerely wish you well.

Here’s the problem” I’ll bet you didn’t send anything to DailyKos accusing any liberals or Democrats of being “crazy” or “culpable”, did you?

Did it bother you when Pres Obama talked about bringing a “gun” to a “fight”, did it bother you when he referred to his opponents as “hostage takers”? Is he “culpable”?

You don’t think “crazy” or “culpable” are invidious, or is it you just say what your brainwashing tells you without thinking at all?

I believe you expressed yourself more honestly when you though you were lobbing bombs anonymously.

By the way, the state just East of California is “NEvada”.

I wish you well as a matter of charity, and in that, I still urge you to seek counseling, admitting you have a problem is the first step to getting better.

Thank you for your e-mail, Adam.
I’ve long known I’m not the brightest bulb in the box, and just to be fair, I sent the email to the editor who wrote the piece, I didn’t post on the website deliberately so I wouldn’t add more hurt to an already hurtful situation. Seems that backfired, which I regret. But I did not come into your backyard to inflame. I believe inflammatory words have legs and we spend way too much time creating a divide. I think Red State is every bit as culpable as Daily Kos.  Right. Left. Red. Blue. Right Wrong. We’re hurting each other.
I sincerely wish you well.
