I got the most delightful comment the other day, from a man apparently named Mike Nash, with the email address firstname.lastname@example.org and the IP address 22.214.171.124, which would seem to place him near Kodak, Tennessee:
I see by your War Is Boring picture [masthead --ed.] above that you are implying that blacks or Africans are doing the majority of the fighting in the War on Terror. That’s a bald-faced lie. I despise you wigger [sic] fanatics who constantly promote blacks as being everywhere, heroic everywhere and in every epoch of history. You pimp lies and you do it to overwhelm white people’s reason and courage by racist subversion from every direction. It’s a slam at all white warriors and heroes. I would like to personally meet you and discuss it. As a veteran, your graphically subversive propaganda causes my blood to boil! War is not boring, you idiot. Only an ignorant punk would say that.
My name is David Axe. I edit the War Is Boring Website. I am deleting your hateful comments from Nov. 7. As for your statement that you’d like to “personally meet me and discuss” the presence of a black soldier on our masthead … I live in Columbia, S.C., at the intersection of Greene and Barnwell, in the basement apartment with the green car out front. My email address is email@example.com. Please come on by any time and we can talk all about your problems with race.
Fair warning: I have black neighbors. Oh, and I’m armed.
Update: Mike’s reply, editing for grammar and clarity:
I’ll look you up, wigger [sic] punk. I don’t care how many blacks you are currently ass-kissing. You are a subversive, afro-centric stooge and a liar!
To which I responded:
Tuesdays are best for me.
