The one about a dumb mayor and possibly a dumber journo

There was a story on news.com.au today about how Moonee Valley Mayor Paul Giuliano sent an email “which targeted Muslims and asked readers who agreed with its anti-Islamic sentiment to pass the email on” to 850 people in his entire address book.

What the News Ltd story failed to mention was that the racist/bigoted chain email is a hoax that originated in the US. There’s also a UK version. The line that mentions something along the lines of “our national motto is In God We Trust” kinda totally gives it away to anyone who’s not a completely insular redneck… I do wonder whether the author of the news story got the whole email and/or bothered to google the email.

I sent this through as a “tip” to boss@crikey.com so I hope that generates more what-a-moron reactions than just posting it up here.

a few notecards

Dear America

♥ you guys!

Dear News Ltd

You are such fucktards.

Having “FIRST BLACK PRESIDENT” as
your giant fucking headline completely
misses the fucking point, you fucking
morons. America has grown up. You
should too.

Very sincerely
Sunili

Dear Janet

“Plenty [of this]” and “plenty [of that]”
and “many many” means squat.  If it
was close, I would agree that there is
racism. But it wasn’t. You must be
a bleeding-heart little-l liberal if
you think Americans voted for him
JUST BECAUSE he is black.

However, since I’m feeling generous
this evening, I’ll pay you on your
Post-Racism thing.

Regards
Sunili

Dear California

ARE YOU EFFING KIDDING ME????

That you voted yes on 8 totes puts
a dampener on this.
