To The Daily Sun,
Mr. Earle's letters are consistently filled with misstatements, "facts" that aren't real, all leavened with heaping doses of a persecution complex and venom for anyone who opposes him.
I would like to tell him that we will not be hating you back, and I'll tell him why, even though he may have no interest in knowing the reason.
Hatred does accomplish some things. It's a loud "attention getter", as any parent who has a child in the "terrible twos" can tell you. Hatred does provoke and stir up people. We could even say that Mr. Earle is a provocateur and an agitator. We could spend our time trying to prove that you shouldn't waste your time or energy consuming yourself with hatred of anything or anyone different than you. But a more visceral (and often satisfying) response is often to "get back" or worse, to "get even".
Doing the last can be a waste of time. You read the letters in The Daily Sun. Writers continue to counter your lies, half-truths and purposeful omissions. They have given you responses to your addicted hatred toward President Obama.
Your constant expression of hatred will no longer faze us. Maybe we are just wasting our time and efforts to answer your hatred and your lies. Maybe it's wiser not to be annoyed or baited into a tit for tat.
We've had many discussions amongst our group and have come to a simple solution. You will probably love it. When we turn to the Letters to the Editor pages our eyes will immediately go to the end of each letter. If we happen to see your name attached to that particular letter, we will not read it. From now on, we will just ignore the rants that you submit to this newspaper. The same way we would ignore the crazy man with the wild hair standing on the corner, bug-eyed and yelling at everyone who walks by. Or the crotchety and irritable man who yells at the neighborhood kids to, "Get off my lawn".
Have a good day and try to take some comfort knowing that we don't hate you back.
