Below is the email in its entirety with headers – for verification that the content is unchanged. What started out as a simple question for clarification on a statement turned into a two-day tirade that ended with threats to use his concealed carry permit against me for the crime of being in LA (A city I have been to often and will be in this week). I will also be including the entire thread of his irrational responses, up to, and including calling me – a descendant of Russian Jews escaping annihilation of two regimes, and after I told him this – a “Nazi”. In over ten years of asking for clarification on statements from people, I have never had someone as thick-headed, violent, and mean, as Trevor Valle. Read below and please tell me what sounds disingenuous. Remember, this is a twitter verified semi-public figure. Wait until you see the twitter feed. More to come. Enjoy. (PS I’m breaking the Amazon link so it doesn’t appear like an ad). All of this because he couldn’t clarify a ridiculous statement he made publicly.
What? “I didn’t read your email” it but he knows its “disingenuous”. He’s made his contact info public everywhere. He’s a public figure. A public figure who says he’ll use us CCW if anyone asks him about his statements in person. He’s made his email public on even Breaking Bio podcasts. He also doesnt understand the term “dox” and does what SJW’s always do; redefine words to use them for their advantage.

Subject: Still need clarification on your statement

Twitter is a horrible place to try and convey context. And I know you get
incessantly trolled. However, I think the one time I sent you something you
were very good about replying to it. A few months back radio host Jimmy
Church had been filling in for Coast to Coast (Believe me, when Im up my
eyes almost roll out of my head listening to that). During the broadcast he
said that transitional fossils dont exist. I called him out and said it was
“patently false” and CC’ed you. And you responded to him to challenge that
claim. Other than one other pro-Trevor comment I don’t believe I have ever
said anything to you on twitter. I may be wrong. If I did it was never
anything negative or challenging. I think I first discovered you via Rogan,
and Im pretty sure I even caught the podcast with Take That Darwin
(Breaking Biology?) podcast but dont hold me to that last one. It may have
been before or after. However, following you has been a treat sometimes and
at others I’ve sort of pitied the relentless trolling. My opinion is that
the verified check can be a curse for some people. Real trolls use that as
a license to be total pricks. I think we forget that there are real people
behind a lot of these avatars.
It was also the subject of an upcoming story. A friend of mine was over
discussing edits (I try not to have bylines anymore) and wanted to pitch a
story to her editors (probably a Sunday edition) Since shes still new to
this publisher shes trying to cut her teeth and avoid just getting paid
kill fees. When I told her that the verified can attract relentless swarm
of trolls her opinion was that [sic] “Famous people aren’t really being
harassed because the ones that matter dont even look at replies or have
someone manage their accounts”. And thats when we started talking about a
few figures that get trolled relentlessly. Your name came up (from me). And
when I opened twitter, sure enough I saw the tweet that I first replied to.
She had thought it was a weird statement and neither of us understood
exactly what was being said. So I said “I’ll find out, he’ll reply. He’s
good about that” and fired it off. In hindsight I probably should’ve sent a
blank open tweet asking you about the whole thing rather than jump into the
middle of a contentious thread. I’ll spare you not type the hindsight
I’m still looking for clarification regarding your statement. It appeared
to a blanket condemnation of a certain people which isn’t always bad (for
example “ISIS sucks” is fine). And I guess what confused me the most was
the wording of “campaign”.
So as I saw that I first wanted to clarify if you were referring to the
presidential campaign that has just ended or if you were referring to the
administrations actions writ large. This was the clarification I was
Your original response was curious. You stated that by not taking action to
stop the current administration it was suffice to call a person complicit.
I found this to be weird on a few levels. Mostly because it makes a blanket
condemnation to people for not doing something. This means that any
write-in is included in that. Anyone who left the top of ticket blank is
included. But even more troubling is that if anyone even supported the DNC
candidate they are also supporting a campaign of blatant racism. So the
only clarification you gave me didn’t clarify anything at all. Rather it
gives carte blanche to anyone that wants to just point and shriek and call
someone a racist if they choose. Ist a strange position to take or even
suggest to advocate coming from someone who is so clearly above that.
It was a relief when I saw your frustration regarding the election on the
last Rogan appearance. When you said you were voting Cthulu. One second
before that I said “Oh no, its going to get political” and thank goodness
it didnt. On a side note, Library of America has a great volume with a
bunch of Lovecraft’s stories. The nice thing about these volumes is they
contain a full timeline of the author’s life and other notes. If you ever
get a chance check it out, I think you would like it. The literary and
academic talent they utilize to bring these volumes together are second to
In closing, I guess I’d like to say that I was not, in any way, trolling
you. I have been on twitter a long time and I’ve never had any problems. I
have never been called a Nazi; odd that you called me a “Pro-Trump” “Nazi”
even after I told you that I left the top of the ticket blank. The greater
irony is that half of my family fled purges (as Russian Jews) twice. One
time was from Russia post revolution, the second was in Eastern Europe
shortly there after. In Russia, one was tossed into the prison system. His
crime unknown. After 6 months of requests the response was that he was
“Deprived of the right to communicate”. Which was code language for being
executed. Later, in Eastern Europe a few must’ve been caught up in the
sweeps of the ghettos. We don’t know. And its what has lead me to be
fervently Anti-Nazi, Communist, racists my entire life. Its also been the
foundation for my love of history, especially revolutionary and
But I’m also not someone who takes insults too personally. Especially when
they are the product of misunderstanding. When I was still working with the
joint division ABC/Yahoo! News many times I would ask someone something on
twitter and get a wicked backlash. Why? Well, its the environment. Its the
structure. It is the playground of the petty. And everyone is just an
avatar, right? Maybe. I don’t think so. You’re a real person. I am a real
person. And my intention was strictly to clarify a statement that *still*
doesnt make sense. I would love to get an explanation and I would also like
to protest in your defense that you are not the irrational one here. I
would like to be able to convince the writer I put onto this that it really
was a misunderstanding. Feel free to contact me to clarify. Email or phone.
My cell number is below. Im in the air tomorrow morning but I’ll be free
from 11am EST from there on out.
Thanks in advance,

This isnt the only time he mentioned using his CCW on me. Matter of fact, this is response number 2 in the thread. Every response is frozen. And will be here soon. PS – I have never in my life removed anything because of threats. Ever. And I never will. If anyone has a problem with it file suit.
After telling him twice that I left the top of the ticket blank and told him I was Jewish, this is one of his handful of Nazi tweets. What should be noted here is that a Jewish “Nazi sympathizer” is also used interchangeably with “Nazi Collaborator”; this is the nearest equivalent to calling a black person an “Uncle Tom”. I like that he and his friend Contra Points (barely distinguishable when she isnt in her make up) decided to get together for a nice middle-finger picture. I hope they did that for me.
There’s such a grand irony in all of this and why I even happened to see his stupid twitter exchange. Its really the best part And I’ll publish it with the rest of his stupidity to me shortly. Very simple. Trevor made an awkward statement. When asked to clarify he tried to be Kierkgaard and fumbled. To cover up the logical fallacy he went on the attack. And never relented. When I publish his entire maniacal tirade I’ll still give him the chance to respond, as promised. But he’s an angry SJW and needs to hide behind the safe space of twitter. He is even scared of emails. He lies, deflects, projects, threatens, obfuscates. Everything SJW junior post-modern intellectual midgets do. They cant help it. SJWs would rather burn everything down than admit fault in anything they have said or done. They are too afraid of how the tribe will perceive them. Let it be his downfall. My offer still stands to honor his rebuttal. After he clarifies his bullshit childlike logic.
