Hey bitch

Shove your ‘cockroache’ opinion up your arse.

Subject: NZ FERNS article

From: Barry

To: Lauren Theisen

Congratulations you’ve just been elected ‘archetypical Ugly American’ for this article. Trump will be proud of you - you been taking lessons from him? It’s exactly what he/you does/would do to anything/anyone who he/you have decided to dislike, demean, just generally crap on.

Maybe you don’t know or more likely don’t care how insulting calling someone a cockroach is. But on the other hand most of us now think of yanks as bullying boorish people from the words and actions of so many, so I suppose it’s no surprise.

Here you are, Queen of the Roaches

Your possible mates live on Madagascar, please head into the bush over there for the foreseeable future to find one and realise your true potential.

That entire article was a pathetic, whiny, incessant cry for attention. You are the reason Trump will be re-elected. Take your PC bullshit and go cover pickle ball.

Subject: Tyson fury

From: Rich Pritchard

To: Lauren Theisen

Hello,

I don’t understand you people in the LGBTQI community. Tyson Fury made some statements that are of his own opinion and just because you, a trans woman [what ever the hell that is], is offended you expect Tyson Fury, ESPN, and Top Rank to apologize. That’s absurd! He’s entitled to his own opinions and he doesn’t have to like the LGBTQI community. He’s not out attacking you people nor is he advocating for non-LGBTQI people to attack your community.

Just because some idiot made June pride month and just because you people get to prance around in a homo parade doesn’t mean that society accepts you people and your warped sense of self. Society is willing to let you people live your lives as you think you should, but we’re tired of you demanding special treatment and being offended by everyone who doesn’t agree with your lifestyle.

No one owes you people anything and Tyson Fury owes you people no apology. Do what non-lgbtqi people do when it comes to you people and your beliefs, we ignore you, I suggest you ignore Tyson Fury if you don’t like what he’s says or stands for.

Eurocentric nonsense. Get wise or gtfo, write about the passionless multimillionaires who dive and agonize on the ground after being pushed down by the wind and embarrass themselves with little or no regard for the beauty that the game is meant to display. Don’t like crunching tackles? Go watch golf. Chupando las vergas de futbol europeo, heuvoncito.

I bet you don’t have the nuts to step in front of one of these player you call bozos in their face. Stop being a long distance warrior and be a man and say to their face. Remember to make it to the nba you have to be among the top players in the world. Did you play basketball? How far did you get? Right so shut up coward.

Subject: Garbage

From: Scott Levert

To: Chris Thompson

Chris, you know it is sad that editors like you create such garbage and post that garbage on the internet that you know good in well that you do not even know what is truly going on. Let’s take for example the Vietnam War. When the young men of that era came back home they were called baby killers and instead of helping those young men many people across the United States of America bashed them and hated them. Ok, so there were a couple of instances and even in those instances no one really knows the truth except for those who were there at that time/in the moment. Why am I saying this to you, you were not with Trump in that moment/time and I know for sure you do not know what he was thinking, yet, you have a twisted mind and you hear what everyone else says about him and then form your own opinion and then right pure crap. I know you must be a millennial because individuals like yourself have grown up with everything handed to you on a silver platter and you can’t be thankful for what we have in this great Nation called United States of America and those who have provided the freedom so you can enjoy such luxuries of that freedom. I can go even further, let us look at Obama who you are “praising” in your article. No sir, Obama was tearing this country down bit by bit and it was obvious in the legislation he was passing or trying to pass. Yet, I know you being a misguided individual can not see the truth but would rather believe garbage and choose to live a lie. What is incredible is I am not a Republican, Democrat, or Independent, yet, I look at each individual and to be honest the best of two evils was to elect Trump over Clinton. I know you will say that Clinton would have been a good choice, yet, if you were seeking the truth which I know your not just by what I have read from your posts you would have seen that Hillary Clinton would have really brought this Country down. Honestly, this Country is as Alexis de Tocqueville once said “America is great because she is good, but when she ceases to be good, she will cease to be great.” Ok, Trump has done some things that I do not agree with either, yet, you will not hear me go around bashing him either. Further, when Obama, Clinton, the Bush’s, Reagan, and Nixon did not so good things I didn’t bash them then either. So before you write/post do your true research, hear from the “horses” mouth and get around those who have lived a lot longer than you and let them explain why things are the way they are. Have a good day sir. Scott

Subject: Our Moron President

From: Anthony Sleck

To: Chris Thompson

The title says it all. The exception to the title is, you’re the Moron. I didn’t even have to read the article to know who the real moron was. And obviously i was right. It’s you. You should pull your head out of your rectum and breathe some fresh air. All that methane that you’ve been breathing has caused to think irrationally, and come up with stupid ideas. Breathe some fresh air, and you’ll have a whole new outlook on reality.

Youre flapping your lips just to be arrogant and you sound unsatisfactory. You are why no one can trust the news. You sound like a petty fourteen year old girl who only trusts Starbucks.

To bad she does not deserve to go to the White House. I’d like her to back up any of those claim she has made against the president. This is just the usual crap she’s heard from Main Street Press like yourself because of the hatred towards our President.

Have some respect for the office you foul mouth primadonna.

STAY HOME with all the “take a knee” professional players that disrespect police, military, and the president.

You make all these judgements but state them as facts. But according to who. You ppl decide the narrative and spread it as gospelThat’s very tacky. Unable to speak objectively. You stress liberalism and ur anti-values. In the black community we respect ministers and value their judgement. U ppl want everyone to agree with ur humanism. U will never destroy religion in blacks. You are wasting ur time. All you’ll do is make us dig in deeper.bWevwill never adopt ur satanism or ur Babylonian religion.nd The black community don’t agree with homosexuality but doesn’t hate any gay person. It’s their right. It’s also a christians right to not agree with it. We can all agree to disagree. Everyone has sum1 gay in their family or a friend who is. Because atheletes are selling out and not taking a stand, the black community will soon abandon them too.
