You need to prove that your love for Trump is not tainted.

That's a ransom note.

I'd sue for defamation. I wouldn't think twice about it. I haven't gotten this email, but if I did, the Complaint would be filed the next morning.

A ransom note would make some sort of sense. I can't make anything out of that.

I read that as, 'You need to prove your love for Trump's taint'.  Which is probably in another email...

That genuinely looks like a scam text and if I hadn't checked out the URL I'd assume it was one

Good lord how damaged would you have to be to be taken by that line of reasoning.  Five hundred years ago theses would be the personality types who self flagellated and gave up their wealth for Savonarola, now they do it for Metamussoilini

Name-calling and belittling, yes this is how you should ask people for donations.

I receive Trump campaign emails, between 10 to 15 a week. I first noticed this message shortly after the election and see it a few weeks apart. There are several templates, but my favorite is "They're after Trump now, but will come for you when he's gone".

Common themes: Fear, Hate and most importantly, Narcissism. Nancy Pelosi is gonna getcha.

My mom told someone I was dating he either had to marry me or leave me alone. Without skipping a beat, he got up and walked out of the house. We didn't stop seeing each other, I suddenly had new hobbies in his absence, if you know what I mean.
 
2022-08-14 5:28:42 PM  
That's the thing I've never understood. Why are other people providing money to a guy who is, allegedly, a billionaire? It's almost like Donny doesn't have any money....

Doesn't that technically make you a double-agent?

Somehow I got on the text list for these. It'll list ZIP code on some, and always calls me Herbert. Most purport to come from Trump family members, "concerned" they'll have to "report" my "disloyalty" to Trump.

Block, try again. Get more later. Reply Stop. Doesn't work. Call "Don Jr." a farking cokehead. Nothing. Call "Eric" a farking (REDACTED). Nothing.

Finally, I responded in anger.
"I'm a lifelong Democrat, I've had this number for 20+ years and NEVER voted Republican and never will. Also, I'M NOT FARKING HERBERT. Stop or I'm sending these "concerned" texts to the FBI."

hereinNC: To get this message, doesn't it mean that you were stupid enough to have previously donated?


Not necessarily. I got one of the "they're taking women's rights away, vote yes on August 2nd" before that vote. That was, however, a lie. A "yes" vote took away rights and a "no" vote secured rights. I suspect that my phone company sold my number to the Red Hats.

RecoveringLibertarian: Good lord how damaged would you have to be to be taken by that line of reasoning.


I genuinely don't understand how it's not an instant turn-off, because the only sane response to something like this is, "Fark off with your manipulative bullshiat."

hereinNC: To get this message, doesn't it mean that you were stupid enough to have previously donated?


No, you just need to be on their contact list. Lots of journalists are, for example, not because they've donated, but so they can see this stuff when it goes out, monitor fundraising tactics, see how they're responding to current events, etc. A friend is a political reporter, he's the libbiest lib that ever libbed, and he gets these emails all the time.

I brought a guy home once when I was 15 to meet my family.

I never brought another.

When I got married, I introduced my future husband about 3 mos before the wedding. We had been living together for over a year at that point, and together 3 years before we were married.

My mom would beg me to meet him and I kept telling her she didn't deserve to ever meet him, but because I was the only female child out of 4, I wanted my mom to see me get married. She was right there with my hubby when I had our son too. Couldn't deny her those 2 life events.

That's your fault for being too grounded in logic and reality.

Yeah this looks real!  🙄 And curious to the timing since it was first reported in October of last year.

One of the Twitter responses did say in reference to the 17 minute deadline, "Q is the 17th letter of the alphabet maybe there's some underlying mythology for the conspiracy nuts?"

It was an instant turn-off. When this happened nearly a year ago, the Washington Post quoted Trump advisers who were livid about the message, saying the tone was inappropriate and the rhetoric was off-putting and alienating.

Heh. Parallel lives in a way except in reverse. We had been together for almost 15 years when she called me out of the blue and told me that if I stayed with him she would disown me forver. Bye, biatch.

You know, several somewheres, right now...
some poor elderly person is parting with money they don't have to send to this fraud.

We need campaign finance reform like a farking tournequtte right now.

It should be UNHEARD OF for people to be mailing their money to "support" farking politicians.
