Hate Mail

On this page, you’ll see some fun feedback. I don’t edit and all the grammatical errors are theirs, and MAGAts make a LOT of grammatical errors. I remove names and contacts so they’re not bombarded by my readers. There are years of these emails but I just now decided to share them on my site. A lot of these will be conservative newspaper editors’ responses to my pitches.
Trust me, these are real.

From a newspaper editor in Mississippi for this cartoon:

“I realize there is nothing off limits anymore, but if you chose to use a mass shooting of school children in a comic, I can tell that is not the type of business relationship I would want to foster.”

I don’t know which cartoon inspired this message I received on Facebook:

“Sorry you’re a brainwashed deranged lunatic that hates conservatives, I recommend a few pills of trumpenol or to simply stop watching fake un American propaganda new networks like msnbc and cnn that push hate and violence towards the right👌🤡🐑 t”

From a reader through Facebook Messenger for this cartoon.

“The disgraceful unethical comment you call a cartoon on abortion..actually murder goes beyond comprehension. Are you so stupid that you don’t realize what you’re saying. What? or is it that In your demonic world it’s ok to murder babies because they can’t be fed?”

From a newspaper editor in California (really).
“Dear Clay,
Your sense of humor is getting darker as you fall even further in to your delusions.Good work though… you definitely have talent for satire, just not for discerning the truth from fiction. Publishing this would be irresponsible propagation of destructive viewpoints.You just happen to be on the wrong side of history right now, or your afraid of the woke left you support with your work. You certainly aren’t serving as a comical pressure valve to release societal tensions, which should be your role in such a polarized environment. We should all be okay as long as we can just agree that it’s okay to disagree and not force our viewpoints on others.Merry Christimas. Warmly,(I redacted his name)Freedom Loving American”

From an editor in Arizona (I don’t make these up).
“Trump is no longer president, yet you keep beating on him. Why don’t you draw cartoons that depict our woefully inept, blundering president? Indeed, there’s a wealth of Biden gaffes and blunders from which to choose. But then, I see you genuflect fo CNN. I’m clearly not interested in your work!”

From an editor in Tennessee.
“You could not pay me to put these in my newspaper.”

From a CEO of a newspaper chain in Wisconsin.
“Clay, I’ll decline and please don’t send this nonsense to me anymore.  I don’t think it’s funny at all and this stuff will not be part of my newspapers, ever.  Awful.”
