Barbara Coe Gets in Flame War With a Fellow Patriot!

Oh, the joys of being on California Coalition for Immigration Reform head Barbara Coe's email list! One is privy to her fevered conspiracy-minded, CAP-LOVING ILLEGAL ALIEN SAVAGES mind. But what happens if someone signs you up for her thoughts, and you don't want any more part of them? Watch out. Below is actual correspondence between Babs and some poor soul who didn't want his email box invaded with her more-than-daily rant (their name is stricken to protect their identity). Remember: the thousands of people on her list read this, because Babs is not above publicly humiliating "patriots":

            I do not care where it SHOULD show up - With our new system, I know where it DOES NOT show up.  I received your specific email address and deleted it as you requested.
            IF you get ANY more emails from me, please let me know so ASAP that I can double-check our new system to INSURE your email address has been deleted as you requested.

Barbara:  I have given you my email THREE TIMES.  See it below in my message.  (email redacted).   If you can't find it, and I start marking your emails as spam, it will affect your yahoo recipients.  Take care of it, or ask someone who knows how to do it for you.

Take it to the bridge, Babs!

    I have deleted your email address from our list as you requested and asked you to advise me if my effort was not successful so that I could take further action to insure your request was honored.  And I get a message from you such as this?  I thought we were fellow-patriots - obviously I was wrong.
    REAL patriots do NOT threaten one another with vicious action as you have.  Have a nice life, (name redacted) and may many others DELETE your email address on their lists to avoid their also being  a target of your unwarranted wrath.
