MAIL BAG/Hate Mail

Many of you have gone out of your way to express your feelings about my work; you wrote letters, made phone calls, lit torches -- but I digress. Whether I hit the bullseye of your funny bone, or somewhere below the belt, I do thank you for playing along.
Remember, I'm only jo-king.

It's easy to forget in these days of social media many have forsaken the traditional InterWeb for the monolithic presence of Facebook. I have rec'd some OUTSTANDING posts of hatemail online that do not appear here because they were anonymous.
There is no worse shit on my shoe than anonymous hate mail from cowards.
For more than a decade of my life I took my turn at "tearing a new one" for common criminals, councilmen, congressmen and even the commander-in-chief...
But it was never anonymous.
I always signed my name.

*** "I'M NOT GAY, I'M JUST A SISSY" ***

In 2012, I added this title to my line of calendar collections of topical toons. In this case a look back at the gay movement's headlines over the past decade that my editorials have covered.

This resulted in a nationwide threat of boycott to any distributor that carried my work. Fair enuff. What the gay blogging network was unsatified with in reality was nothing short of the complete shut down of any printing service that would have me as a customer. They claimed that this was both no form of censorship or threat to my freedom of speech or freedom of the press.

Here is some of the more rabid hate mail I rec'd of late... I am tempted to say they foam at the mouth - but I don't think it's really foam...

rbowchalk

When gay blogger Andy Towle "fired the fit heard 'round the world" about my latest calendar of cartoon collections, I quipped, "Bottom line: Andy has a hard on for me."

But Andy is a well known Seattle socialite.
Nothing compared to the rural banjo playing cast from "The Hills Have Eyes" like Mr. Chris McCasland.

Here are some of the messages Mr. McCasland has sent me recently - I have voice mails as well - I will post those next.

Whos the fuckin sissy now? There's more comming your way."

"Oh what I would do to have
The kind of strength it takes to stand before a giant
With just a Sling and a stone
Surrounded by the sound of a thousand warriors
Shaking in their armor
Wishing they'd have had the strength to stand

But the giant's calling out my name and he laughs at me
Reminding me of all the times I've tried before and failed
The giant keeps on telling me
Time and time again "boy, you'll never win!
"You'll never win"

But the stone was just the right size
To put the giant on the ground..."

Your comics suck. I would recommend suicide, but that would still leave your terrible comics around, poisoning the planet like spent Uranium 235 rods. No, I want you to go back in time and kill your mother while you're in utero. I know this would create a time paradox and possibly unravel reality as we know it, but it is a risk I am willing to take.

*** "PHILISTINES & NEANDERTHALS!" ***

In May of 2010, during my keynote speaking engagement at the Phoenix Comi-Con, I debuted a brand new combination Editorial/Parody: "A.D.=Anno Domini: The Cure for the Common Era" in partnership with Russ Miller of Creation/Evolution/Science Ministries out of Flagstaff, AZ... Thanks to FB & Twitter the new strip has already been exposed to a half-million viewers! This July THE JOURNEY CHRISTIAN NEWS kicks off our print campaign.

*** THAT'S THE WAY THE COOKIE CRUMBLES! ***

In June of 2006, just shy of the Santa Monica Daily Press's 4th Anniversary -- and subsequent to my work being published in the Los Angeles Times, the SMDP abruptly and without comment cancelled my editorial panel strip, the FUNNY PAPERZ.

All of my phone calls and emails to the Publisher & Editor to determine what exactly was going on went un-returned.

I can only assume (and you know what THAT means...) that I was too good at doing my job, and made all the right people, agencies and administrations uncomfortable.

I am however very gratified to receive these comments from loyal readers...

rbowchalk

Dear Carolyn,
 
I thank you for your response to the e-mail that I sent to you with regards to this issue, however, I would like to strongly advise your organization to publish a written retraction and apology to the African American community of Santa Monica and surrounding areas, and for this to be published in your next issue for the derogatory picture of
Rosa Parks, dated October 28, 2005, page 4, that was allowed by your paper to, in your words,  "slip through your stop gaps" via the cartoon artist who presented it to your paper, for the following reasons:
 
   1. Rosa Parks is an historical African Amercian figure who lived and died for a cause that still plagues African Americans today and that is,  racial sterotyping, inequality, and economical and social injustices, as evident with this particular issue.
   2. In my opinion, the message this picture sends to our African American community is one that states, "go ahead and take your last bus ride, but remember that, as a people you are still inslaved by your identity and this will be the case until the day you die, and that nothing! not even the death of a historical figure like, Ms. Parks, will change that view or opinion of  those who are non-African American."
   3. Many of our children and youth read the Santa Monica Daily Press, at home and in their classrooms as a current event assignment, and so the SM Daily Press should make sure that the image they project as a community newspaper, is one that respects the cultural diversity of the people who live and work in this community.
   4. We all should be striving to send messages to our children and youth about their identitiy, heritage and culture that fosters a positive image and mindset that will help them understand that they are of value, have a place in this world and a right to dignity and respect. This picture does not depict that!

 Need I say more! I will contacting the NAACP Santa Monica/Venice Branch, President Darrell Goode about this matter, as well as, local officials and churches with regards to this matter, because in my opinion a, "back-door apology to me is not good enough!
 
Sincerely,
 
Marcia Fierro
Resident of Santa Monica

* Dear Marcia, thanks for forwarding me a copy of your complaint. As I mentioned to both you and my editor -- NO ONE may put words in either my mouth or those of my cartoons.

Unfortunately both my recent cartoon and that done in 2003 were TRIBUTES to Rosa and her legacy. To have their meaning twisted into hate speech cannot pass without my strongest objections.

Re: Look Who Fell Off the Welcome Wagon,
or, In The Realm of the Witless

Cartoons like this say more about the people penning and publishing them
than they do about the purported subjects. There's a part of me that
would like to see the U.S. economy collapse entirely, so the "good
people" get swept into the gutter along with those whom they so enjoy
despising.

Assignment for next class: Read Flannery O'Connor's short story,
"Revelation."

Dear Mr. Furukawa,

First, let me compliment you on a wonderful newspaper, which I read daily. The local, national, and world news coverage is very educational and useful. I also appreciate the crossword puzzle and classified section.

However, I would like to let you know that, although I find all the other comic strips in your paper to be a delight, I find the comic strip "Funny Paperz" to be consistently irrelevant and irritating. This poor artist is almost always out of touch with what is amusing or insightful about a given issue. He very often misses the point about a given situation, and only manages to be obnoxious. This strip is so consistently annoying that I usually ignore it each day as I peruse your otherwise-enjoyable and educational publication. However, I unfortunately read yesterday's (July 22) comic regarding
Kobe Bryant, and this time I found it downright offensive and in terribly poor taste: what is the point of an depicting this athlete's genetalia as saying, "I'm innocent?" He is a master at stating the obvious in a vulgar manner, and does not further our understanding of a given issue or story in the slightest.

To add insult to injury, I notice a frequent ad in your newspaper for Funny Paperz Bestest Editorial Cartoons of the Year 2003. I cannot imagine anyone actually buying this book!

I strongly recommend that the editorial staff give serious consideration to withdrawing "Funny Paperz" from future editions of your paper, as it seriously compromises the overall credibility of the publication.

Thanks for listening. Also, I would appreciate if you would NOT publish this letter.

Regards,

Marilyn Judson
Santa Monica
