And people ask why I moved to Wales...

Actual unedited response to this week's column:

"I was going to state that you should be proud to be an American and a United States Citizen. I was going to state that you should proudly speak up about our presence in Iraq; even if you disagree with it, you should not espouse your feelings in a foreign country.

But then I saw a picture of you, and realized that you are no better than john murtha, harry reid, or nancy pelosi.

I am glad, however, that I will not be around in 20 years when you will all be praising Allah – there is nothing wrong with that, our country WAS based on religious freedom – or face slaughter at the hands of the militant islamists.

Please believe me. It will come as long as people of your ilk, continue to massage the 20 percent of people that control the media.

I don't ever respond to e-mails like this. If I did, I would have written this:
"Dear Sir,
I, too, am glad that you will not be around in 20 years.

That's a scary response. :-s

Because of that I thought you could do with some oppisite response...
I was going to say something relevant to what you wrote but I saw your picture and my legs gave way beneath me

THAT's the kind of response you want

Ahh, the internets, full of nut jobs. And a select few normal people, of course. ahem.

clearly from your picture he discerned that you're a long-haired hippie.

even though you got your hair cut all short and britishy.

and he's right - you do look just like murtha, reid AND pelosi! except hotter.

No, heatherfeather, I think Chris still retains at least a portion of his soul, as opposed to any of the politicians mentioned.

Imagine what it's like living amongst people like this, day in and day out? Makes you want to stay inside, lest the high-powered rifle option make itself too attractive.

I knew that column would get to some hypersensitive flag-lover.

Chris Cope said...

Well, yes, that is the sort of response I want Mari, but not necessarily from ultra-conservative old guys.

you wrote a funny article in 2007- it was about fashion, and getting older, and identity- however you made some very unamerican comments. Usually I would leave it to your own people to finsih you off, but their wives wouldn't let them- was it your picture that generated so much hate and love..perhaps. After all, we all know a picture is worth a thousand words, especially for the less wise.
That being said it is now time for you to:

die fool die

The most offensive thing about your column is the fact that it contains links to 40% off jackets at M&S.

That'll teach you to diss Members Only jackets.

Wait a minute, when did you give Rupert Murdoch and Ted Turner a massage? Also, did you give them a 'happy finish'?
