Anyone who does anything similar to what I do for a living is bound to get their fair share of hate mail/comments from people who disagree (often strongly) with something they’ve said or written. For the most part, I don’t take any of these things seriously (in fact, I usually don’t even read most of them) because there’s really no point. Being attacked and criticized is, unfortunately, just a part of “the business” — especially if you want to write about or discuss politics.
However, once in a while a message is noteworthy – like one I received last week from a particular individual who I could tell wasn’t a “fan.” I’ll admit, at first, I didn’t actually read the email – mostly because it was written in all caps, which is typically a good indicator that I really don’t need to waste my time with it.
But I did (as I do sometimes) send a snarky response letting that person know I didn’t read their email and I found it rather interesting that they took time out of their life because they really thought I’d care what they had to say about me.
That’s when this individual decided to reply to my sarcastic message, proclaiming themselves to have an IQ of 168 which, if true, would mean he’s around the same level of intelligence as individuals such as Stephen Hawking and Bill Gates.
So, after I received this reply, I decided to read his original message. What I found was a vile email filled with vulgarity, sexism, a homophobic slur and what sounded very much like he was wishing bad things upon me, liberals and Hillary Clinton.
Here’s what he wrote (edits of foul language were made by me):
FRANKLY I’M SURPRISED YOU DIDN’T ALTER YOU LAST NAME AND DELETE THE “F”… BEING YOU’RE OBVIOUSLY IN LOVE WITH SLICK WILLY AND HILIARY!!!

So, why write this article? Well, this particular message (aside from being far more disturbing than most) was sent from a work email, with all of his company’s contact information included. Mr. Lemke, I’m assuming, represents some sort of ownership role of Lemke Machinery Sales, INC. located in Cedarburg, Wisconsin, a town situated a few miles north of Milwaukee.
What I found very interesting about this email wasn’t just how offensive it was, but that a tagline in the email describes this company as, “A Christian Based Wisconsin Business Since 1990.”
That was the “final straw” that ultimately pushed me to write this article. I think his customers (and potential future ones) have a right to know about messages such as what he sent me filled with vulgarity, sexism, a homophobic slur and an attitude that I personally found extremely disturbing. Especially considering, on two occasions within the email, he seems to be wishing ill-will upon me by saying “karma” (in quotation marks, for some reason) has something “in store” for me and that I will “get mine” — whatever that means.
To be honest, personally, I don’t think it’s irrational for me to take those comments as threats. I don’t know Mr. Lemke or what he means when he says I’ll “get mine”; that “karma” has something in store for me; or that I’m going to get “f*cked someday.” In my opinion, those can easily be interpreted as threats.
After alerting Mr. Lemke that I would be writing this article, he eventually responded by saying that people already know who he is and accused me of making “threats of trying to harm” his business. He also sent these other two messages:
Better know who you’re talking too… wouldn’t want to defame someone you’ve never met!??? But then do you have anything to lose? You’re willing to sell our country down the river why not your soul too????

Seem pretty thin skinned just like your exalted leader Hussein???

I found it extremely interesting how he refers to President Obama by only his middle name of “Hussein.” While I typically know what that means when someone emphasizes our president’s middle name, I’ll let everyone decide for themselves what to make of that.
It was also rather interesting that he assumed I would “defame” him by simply posting the message he sent to me. He can challenge what I’ve posted here all he wants, but I have all the emails he sent me saved as evidence of exactly what he said and from what email address it was sent. It’s the exact name and email address listed on Lemke Machinery Sales’ website.
My goal here isn’t to sway anyone’s opinion, or tell them what to think in any way. In fact, some might see his words and give him their business because of what he wrote in his emails. All I wanted to do was let people know what Mr. Lemke said in his message to me so that current and future customers of Lemke Machinery Sales in Cedarburg, Wisconsin would know the type of “Christian” business they’re dealing with.
