Princess Sunbutt has a Zionist Plot!


This week, a brief Dear Shitferbrains, because didn't we just give you people one of those a few days ago? Today, a real treat: a genuinely weird email correspondence between Yr Editrix and a very disgruntled reader, one "Judy B." It all got rolling in late May, when our newsletter included a link to an article in which we said unkind things about Bernie Sanders and his supporters' behavior at the Nevada state Democratic convention. Judy started out angry and escalated from there. For the sake of clarity, we'll put Judy's emails in regular type, and Yr Editrix's replies in italics:

Re: Wonkette: "Nice Grandpa Bernie Sanders Gonna BURN YOUR SH*T DOWWWWWN"

May 18: Looks like Wonkette has joined that part of the public which looks upon the 2016 presidential election as a horserace, and rather than looking at Hillary's history and character (or lack thereof) is handicapping the future of this country by trying to guess/force the winning ticket.

In spite of all that is known about Hillary and the dirty tactics of the DNC and Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, Rebecca chooses to criticize those whom she supposes to be Sanders' supporters for expressing long overdue frustration in Nevada.

We now have the two most incompetent, and compromised candidates as front runners for POTUS, and Rebecca focuses her ignorant comments against what appears to be a few Sanders supporters who have heroically and stoically endured the unfair treatment of corporate media, and snide bitchy bloggers such as Rebecca of Wonkette.

I quote John Lucente of Lexington MA who said in letter to the Boston Herald on May 18, 2016:

"On one hand we have a megalomaniac who sounds like a sailor on leave in a combat zone with a fistful of twenties.

On the other hand we have a pathetic candidate whose main qualification seems to be the fact that she should be the first US woman president.

They do have some common threads. They both will say anything. ...

It would behoove every American to go to their place of worship and pray for a divine intervention that neither of these frauds is elected as our next president."

Instead of acknowledging this abomination of current presidential candidate front runners Rebecca chooses to mock Sen. Sanders and his supporters who are trying to steer us away from the apocalypse of a Hillary or Donald presidency.

So far, so good. Judy is displeased and thinks we've overlooked the chicanery of the DNC and DWS (about whom we've frankly never said anything nice, but sure, fine). It's your usual huffy complaint letter, complete with a forward of a letter to the Boston Herald by somebody else who agrees with Judy that Hillary and Donald are both the worst ever, and shame on us for not getting behind the One Last Hope for saving America. And then things get odd:

This deliberate refusal to acknowledge reality has to cause any astute voter to wonder about the loyalties of Rebecca and her ilk: Are they really concerned about this country, or are they a part of what has in the past been referred to as America's "Fifth Column."

Today we call them Israel Firsters, and we know that is true of Hillary and now Donald.

And also Wonkette ...??! - Judy B

Wut? We're part of a disloyal invasion force that lurves Benjamin Netanyahu because we came out for Hillz? Huh! Rebecca replied:

Um, Judy? Are you saying I'm a Jew?

Unclear.

Things got tetchy:

Re: Wonkette: "Nice Grandpa Bernie Sanders Gonna BURN YOUR SH*T DOWWWWWN"

Then I truly literally don't know what you are trying to say. What the fuck is Israel First?

Oh, shame on us. Either we don't keep up, or we're lying. In either case, our willful refusal to apply to ourselves a term of art that caused a bit of a row among Serious Foreign Policy Writers several years back invalidates our ability to say anything meaningful about the 2016 elections:

Re: Wonkette: "Nice Grandpa Bernie Sanders Gonna BURN YOUR SH*T DOWWWWWN"

If you don't know what I mean when I refer to an "Israel Firster" then you really should not be writing about politics and the 2016 election because it's clear that you are uninformed. Do the research. -- Judy B.

Re: Wonkette: "Nice Grandpa Bernie Sanders Gonna BURN YOUR SH*T DOWWWWWN"

And if you think I have *any* love for Israel, you don't know how to read. I could not give a fuck about Israel, never have, honestly never will. Thanks for the assumption, though, which actually DOES prove anti-semitism in assuming I'm for Israel because I'm half-Jewish. In fact, Bernie Sanders is a hell of a lot more pro-Israel than I am.

Kindly take me off your list of stupid #-all replies. You signed up for my newsletter, I didn't sign up for yours.

"Methinks that [sic] doth protest too much"...! - Judy B

"Behind every great fortune there are great crimes" - Balzac

Yr Editrix was finished with the conversation, and so, it seemed for a while, was Judy. But then, darned if we didn't have to go and keep saying things about Hillary Clinton, who stubbornly insisted on not being Bernie Sanders. And what's worse, she began drawing other Democrats into her Web of Depravity. Worst of all, we kept writing about it, despite our proven incompetence to do so.

RE: Elizabeth Warren Endorses Hillary, Because They’re Both Corporate Sell-Out Monsters. Obviously.

Your snide attempt to demean, with your ridiculous headlines, those of us who won't support Hillary, a blood-thirsty, Israel Firster, Wallstreet/bankster moll, is evidence of your commitment to entertainment rather than truth. ... Elizabeth Warren saw the handwriting on the wall looooong ago, and planned to back the dem winner no matter which, and that was clear to all. Like everybody else she knew the fix was in for Hillary. Politics is politics.

Given all that has been revealed about Hillary, not supporting Hillary is a matter of principle for us. For you it's a matter of Israel. The only reason you choose to ignore all that we know of Hillary's character and record in order to wave her across the finish line is because of Israel - no matter how much you may deny it. Both of you are full of prune juice!! - Judy B.

"Behind every great fortune there are great crimes" - Balzac

We would just like to take a moment to point out that prune juice is more of a Klingon thing than an Israel First! thing:

Oh dear. Now we're probably guilty of supporting the IDF's war crimes by calling them "warriors" in a meme showing Lt. Worf.

Judy, you've GOT to stop accusing me of this Israel stuff; considering I have told you, flat-out, I don't care about Israel -- never have -- the fact that you keep harping (because I have a Jewish name?) on it is truly, truly anti-Semitic. You've *got* to cut it out.

June 10, 2016:

RE: Elizabeth Warren Endorses Hillary, Because They’re Both Corporate Sell-Out Monsters. Obviously.

Like I've said, "Methinks thou doth protest too much." I'll start believing what you say when you stop believing that Hillary is the best candidate to become POTUS - not likely!!

Frankly your name has nothing to do with it, nor does being Jewish, whether you are or are not. Your name could be German or Dutch. Perhaps you support Hillary because of her neoliberal (have you looked that up yet??) and neocon alignment, and her anti-Palestinian rights stance. You are either woefully uninformed, or you are just as corrupt and vile as Hillary! - Judy B.

So it has nothing to do with being Jewish, it just MUST be that I am pro-Israel.

I'm not the one protesting too much, dude.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I am blocking your emails. I didn't sign up for your newsletter.

WELL! Judy was not going to let Rebecca's failure to agree that Wonkette is a corrupt sell-out to the Israel Lobby go unanswered. Also, what about the other insult she leveled at us, huh? HUH?

June 10, 2016:

RE: Elizabeth Warren Endorses Hillary, Because They’re Both Corporate Sell-Out Monsters. Obviously.

Like I've said: "Methinks thou doth protest too much"! No problem with being as "corrupt and vile as Hillary" ... ??!

And here's where picking your battles comes into play: Sure, call us corrupt and vile. That's at least arguable:

no, no problem with that. it's an ad hominem attack, but it's your opinion. maybe it's even true!

I have a problem with you imputing motives to me that have no basis in reality.

This, unfortunately, brought the exchange to an end, since Judy ended up in the spam folder. Sorry, Judy. We'll be sure to send you a note just the minute we start collecting funds to send Dominic the Intern to work on a kibbutz.
