Margaret Cho gets monkey mail too….

Looks like the Shortbus-Americans who make up freerepublic have been busy:

Because Matt Drudge posted an incomplete and edited “transcript” of Margaret Cho’s set (about 2 mins. of the 20 min. set) at the MoveOn.org show Monday night, I have received non stop hateful emails (I have over 100 and they’re coming in at the rate of 1/minute). I believe that many people who read the “transcript” didn’t even realize she is a comedian because they mentioned her “speech.” Most of my traffic has come directly from a site called freerepublic.com, which posted the transcript from Drudge.

Although people were offended by and commented on different parts of the “transcript,” it seems that Margaret’s biggest crimes are being fat, Asian-American, GLBT supportive, and female. I put a few of them on this page but will forward many more, if asked. I’m sorry in advance if the crudeness offends you. Please know that I am sensitive to that but I think you should know what kind of vitriol is being thrown at Margaret and the kind of racism, homophobia, and misogyny we’re up against in the coming election.

Here’s a sample:

I read a transcript of your remarks about President Bush.

Why don’t take your slant-eyed ass back to the orient if you don’t like it here, you worthless troll.

Given your recent comments about President Bush at the MoveOn.org awards, you obviously have no problems with personal attacks.
Therefore I thought I’d take a moment to let you know that most people think you are a no talent, fat, washed up a-hole.

Just a quick note to let you know that after reading your comments from the move on . org awards I was disgusted. Your comments were totally uncalled for. Why don’t you you take your fat slant eyed head and go back to China.

F__k You

You are a f’n loser… I am hoping you develop breast cancer or contract a flesh-eating disease and pass it on to your whole f’n family… you bitch.

It is liberal democrats that are f’n up the world. Women have had over 40,000,000 abortions in 30 years, that more lives killed then men in this country have killed in all the wars we have fought in combined. At least men can claim they did it in the name of LIBERTY and FREEDOM, women claim they kill in the name of CHOICE?

Lovely. And those are the nice ones. Go check out the Bush supporters and then come back and we’ll talk about how offensive it is to compare George W. Bush to Hitler.

(Added): I’ve just added Cho to the Hot Links. She’s too good to miss.
