Angry Reader 08-01-2020

I was really impressed by the article you wrote that was published in the east bay times today. Mostly impressed by the enourmase size of the piece of shit that you are. Inciting violence from the “silent majority” is one of the most irresponsible things one can possibly publish.

Dear Angry Reader Jon Viera,

Within such a brief note, you included a lot of the usual Angry Reader pathologies—the tired emphatic capital letters, sarcasm, grammatical errors, misspellings, scatology, the F-word, and untruth. If you can cite anywhere in the article you referenced that I called for, or incited violence, you would have cited the passage verbatim, since you seem fond of quotation marks. In fact, you cannot, because I wrote no such thing. I have never advocated violence. Like millions of others I have been appalled at the riot, ruin, injuries and deaths we are seeing on the streets of America and those who have abetted it. There is going to be a backlash and pushback from Americans who are confused by and growing angry at the looting, arson, destruction, and random violence of Antifa and BLM. But the reaction will likely be manifested in either one of two ways—at the ballot box or a sort of disengagement from popular culture—or both.

Best, Victor Hanson
