Sunday Afternoon Mailbag [raw and unedited*]

It’s a recurring theme:  when the left don’t like what you have to say, they counter with boycotts, violence and even death threats.  I guess putting up a better argument is too hard.

I’ve shared this one with the Police.

Message: Bro, you’re the fattest, ugliest motherfucker in New Zealand
and I’d love to shoot a Blue Taliban faggot like you right in the guts

Bro, you have the stones to use your real email address.  For that at least you get some respect.  But, what the hell Bro?  This isn’t the way to interact with people!  Why not use the comments on my blog and tell your story?  

In the mean time, I think the best solution for you will be to busy yourself with other things so you don’t have spare time to bug people that are trying to get a job done, and tying up police resources having to come teach you the Realities of Life when sending death threats to people.

I’ll help – I’ll run your advertisement  – in case people want to hire a University educated English Teacher like yourself.   Because I suspect you need a job, and we can then give the money the Blue Taliban government is paying you to live on to someone a little more deserving.

Sam, you need stop doing stupid things, because what we can’t have is another repeat of stuff like this:

I want to shoot the Police too why don’t you tell them I wrote that so they can bring the Armed Offenders squad? I’ve got two rifles and a decent BB pistol and I don’t mind looking for a target like you in Auckland because you’d stand out so well being a fat guy after all

and not long after that

Bro, you’ve messed up.  Few people will see the funny side.  Least of all the police.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
