It strikes me as extremely hypocritical that Michael Setter, who is a shameless apologist for Donald Trump, would have the nerve to always complain that I’m too contentious. It is also astounding that Setter says he is for animal rights yet never complains about the fact that Trump has by far the worst record on animal rights of any president I’ve observed in my lifetime.

As I’ve said before, I’ve seen no evidence that writing low-key, polite letters gets any nicer responses from my critics than when I write hard-hitting ones. Most of my critics (not all) are vicious people who, like Michael Setter, cannot dispute my arguments so they either distort them or personally attack me.

If Setter believes so much in politeness then maybe he could set a better example of it himself when he consistently takes cheap shots at me.
