So, Mr Christian, I empathize. If you think the ‘patriots’ are creepy wait till you annoy the homeschoolers. That lot, they’ll slit your throat (or show up at your house or call you all hours of the day and night or do their best to destroy your reputation or all of the above). Or the fundamentalists. Or the Mennonites. Or the gun-nutters. Or the radical homosexuals. Or the far right neo-Nazis who call themselves tea-people. Or the angry atheists. Oh, or the Christian Zionists… forgot about them for a minute!
Fact is, Mr Christian, the sorry fact is, most people can’t disagree without being murderous or manipulative. But don’t worry, 9 times out of 10 they love to cower behind their much loved anonymity and pseudonymity.
Still, it’s good to keep a file of all those sorts of threats. That way if the loons are ever successful, the police have leads.
[I can well imagine one day the cops showing up and asking my family if my brutal murder came about because I had enemies- anyone out to get me. ‘Oh yes, here’s the list. Start with the Mennonites if you want the most likely but then if you’d rather just go alphabetically.]
