1. Very right on response.

I hope I can respond that eloquently and non-angrily to my low-information republican fellow workers.

2. The Religious Right is driven to convert

They really do feel bound to MAKE you agree with them or treat you horribly. I guess they've been programmed to do that by their Churches (Republican PACs). They really do not get freedom. To them "freedom" means them having the right to harrass anyone they feel is wrong about anything. Just insane.

I liked what you wrote back to her.

3. Typical democratic response.

She insulted you in both emails. First, by disparaging the President. And second by insulting you personally.
In response, you were polite and concerned about her feelings.
Typical Democrat! lol

5. LMAO! You know what, you're right!

 

I didn't look at it that way. I dunno...It's how I was raised. It's how I was programmed.

4. I would have taken the original email to HR.

If HR gets even a whiff of something that might turn into a harassment lawsuit, they nip it in the bud real quick.

7. Mark her email as spam and just get yourself OUT of this loop.

Show the copies to your boss, tell him/her you've blocked the person but don't want to make a big deal about it, just want it to stop.

IF you continue, you'll get more heated and SHE will play victim and get YOU in trouble or fired.


BUT if you think about this honestly this person came from a land that doesn't have Democracy or freedom AND she has obviously found a place in the Right Wing Corner where she feels safe because it has that familiar oppressive dogma wall that isn't designed for someone to peer over. Educate her that freedom of speech has it's limitations, can't yell "Fire!" in a crowded movie theater and "political speech at work" needs to not interfere with work even if it's using non-company email.


It's nicer just to give a very firm NO and completely disengage than it is to try and plead with her to be reasonable. People like that love to see DEMs beg for some reason. You're spending patience you could be using to work on a project or help a client. If you don't have that patience down the road because you let this person use it up, there is another way you could be jeopardizing your job.

10. it's the "evangelical" part that gives her away

she has herself convinced that what she is doing is not only acceptable but noble and pleasing to her gawd.

11. All the wing nuts at my boyfriend's office called in sick. He called it "Electionitis"

The manager is one of them so I guess they will get away with it. They keep on calling him a "liberal" but he pretty much figures that it's none of their business and basically just laughs at them. I'm sure there will be hell to pay when they get back to work though.

12. This needs to be forwarded to HR immediately

This is very dicey stuff and you don't want to have HER report it first.

Forward the emails and stop entertaining her foolishness.

13. Maybe I'm not seeing the big picture here, but what leverage could she

 

possibly have? She emailed me first. She initiated contact with me, and twice I asked her to leave me alone. We're both public employees that have to follow strict protocols on this stuff...well, on everything.

Of course, you have a valid point. I just want to avoid any ugliness at work. You'd think someone who thinks the way she does would be embarrassed to have the world at large (especially co-workers) be privy to her narrow-minded opinions. I just don't understand people.

14. If I've seen it once I've seen it a thousand times



People incite you to react and then point the finger. Do not engage this lunatic. I have no doubt she would get you to say something by email then circulate what you wrote.

Trust me. Been there done that.
