My aunt now goes to spam

My aunt in Oklahoma has been told many times to not forward me her chain letters because I don't necessarily agree. Many of hers are religious and political...

I wrote her the following e-mails to let her know...

Dear Aunt,
Thanks for the email, but in the future please do not forward me these chain emails about religion or politics. I don't necessarily agree with your views. All further correspondence will be deleted.

Aunt replied:

Dear Mike,
The pictures speak for themselves. I am just passing on the truth and hope you get to heaven. You need to be aware of these terrorists.
Love ya,

Aunt continues her messages, and even though occasionally there is an important message she will send, she is going to a special junk mail folder just for herself.

Here's yesterday's email.

Mike, you need to see this, for your own good. Muslims.

In my opinion, this is an abomination.

- Obama Crotch Salute –

- Remember: Re-Elect No One!

Isn't anyone out there seeing RED yet?

The POTUSA (President of the United States of America ) at Ft. Hood , Texas on Nov. 11, 2009... "Honoring" the 13 dead. Obama refuses to salute, come to attention or even place his hand on his heart as the honor guard passes at the Memorial Service for those killed by a Muslim terrorist at Fort Hood.!!

The Crotch Salute Returns

This is what we get for electing a never served his country socialist. If this does not offend you nothing will!
I'm embarrassed that the World would see this.

No, I really
don't see a pattern here to justify profiling, do
you? So, to ensure we Americans never offend
anyone, particularly fanatics intent on killing us,
airport security screeners will no longer be allowed to
profile certain people.. They must conduct random searches
of 80-year-old women, little kids, airline pilots with
proper identification, secret agents who are members of the
President's security detail, 85-year old Congressmen
with metal hips, and Medal of Honor winner and former
Governor Joe Foss, but leave Muslim Males between the ages
17 and 40 alone lest they be guilty of

Let's send
this to as many people as we can

Foot note: Fort Hood Texas
......another Muslim 39 years old killed 13 people
and wounded 30 some odd others... Does this fit the

Here's the text from a stamp about EID.
If there is only ONE thing you forward today.... let it be this!

REMEMBER the MUSLIM bombing of Pan Am Flight 103!

REMEMBER the MUSLIM bombing of the World Trade Center in 1993!

REMEMBER the MUSLIM bombing of the Marine Barracks in Lebanon !

REMEMBER the MUSLIM bombing of the military Barracks in Saudi Arabia !

REMEMBER the MUSLIM bombing of the American Embassies in Africa !

REMEMBER the MUSLIM bombing of the USS COLE!

REMEMBER the MUSLIM attack on 9/11/2001 !

REMEMBER all the AMERICAN lives that were lost in those vicious MUSLIM attacks!

Now President Obama has directed the United States Postal Service to REMEMBER and HONOR the EID MUSLIM holiday season with a new commemorative 44 Cent First ClassHoliday Postage Stamp..

REMEMBER to adamantly & vocally boycott this stamp, when you are purchasing your stamps at the post office.

All you have to say is "No thank you, I do not want that Muslim stamp on my letters!"

To use this stamp would be a slap in the face to all those AMERICANS who died at the hands of those whom this stamp honors.

pass this along to every Patriotic AMERICAN that you know and lets get the word out !!!

As I read the emails that your aunt sent you, my blood pressure began to rise and the blood is boiling.

I am afraid if I start pulling these emails apart, I may never stop typing. So let me just say this...

As an educator, I work to teach my students acceptance and respect for all cultures and religions. Perhaps someone needs to teach your aunt (and others like her) the same type of lessons.

As an American who has Muslim friends, I am offended by the presumption that every Muslim is a terrorist. Give me a freakin' break.


So does your personally know anyone who is Muslim? I am doubting it.

I am going to go calm down now. Talk to you later, Mikey!

Ah, now I see why your aunt has her own "special" folder LOL.

I love how The Little Mermaid, Scooby-Doo, and the Smurfs were mentioned in that quiz!

Makes for fun reading, no?

I delete chain mail. I don't even bother reading them. Why can't your aunt send you funny videos of kittens falling off of things or something like that?

Anonymous said...

tell your aunt you have a regular reader that can match with the answer D(I am btw 17 and40, muslim, is it worth to precise I am not extremist for a reader of your blog), may be she will left you in peace, LOL.

Aek said...

I'm starting to see a pattern . . . Muslim male extremist bet/ 17 and 40, yup, that must be it. But what about those older than 41? Magical age range, no? Sheesh, the things people read and consider "the truth" boggles my mind.

El Genio said...

Sounds like it's time for a filter to send these straight to the trash.

Bruce said...

These emails really, REALLY piss me off. This is just one of the many reasons I am not religious. The American christian religious extremists have no tolerance whatsoever of different viewpoints. They think they are the only ones that will be accepted into their God's heaven. I think it's all a crock of sh**. Honestly, I have not tolerance for them and think they should be called out as the hatemonger, racist, bigots they are. I know you are religious Mike, but just like the extremist Muslims, it's the extremist Christians who should not be tolerated. I could go on but I won't, I think you get my feelings on the subject.

Mike said...

JC- I agree 100%. My blood boils as I read these. I figure the less I have to see of them, the better. I just made her her own folder. When I see something in there I can quickly glance, see if it is important, if not, click delete.

Dean- The smurfs and other responses are perhaps the only redeeming parts of the quiz.

James- the political ones outnumber the cute cats. I don't think I've got one of those in 2-3 weeks from her.

Nabil- I think my aunt fails to realize it is such a small group of Muslim extremists- not everyone fits into that category.

Aek- What about 42 year olds? I think they should have been more specific in their answer choices.

El Genio- if there weren't sometimes important emails in the mix, I would.

Bruce- These emails piss me off, too!!! You're so right on American Christians lack of tolerance and seeing others viewpoints. I have no tolerance for them either. I have to admit on a different note that I've been so turned off and disillusioned in the past few years over the lack of tolerance among this community, and a lot of it is what has driven me away from church/religion. And yes, their viewpoints on gays, another topic for another day...
