Nutball Alert: Atheist Neil C. Reinhardt

I get mail from atheist nutballs too.

Neil C. Reinhardt is officially an Atheist nutball. Anyone who sends me an email offering helpful advice while criticizing all atheists is suspect to begin with. I could tell he was slapping at me because of my unfavorable coverage of the Tea Party. I did not realize he was a rabid Tea Party apologist, although a simple Google search would have confirmed it. Check out Neil C. Reinhardt shows his true colors.

Neil’s first email was helpful yet disturbing:

Hello MoJoey,

I like your blog!

I suggest IF you are not a member of the "Freedom From Religion
Foundation" you contact them (link below) and get a copy of their great
monthly newspaper "Freethought Today"

It usually has two pages contaning MANY cases of where some member of
the Clergy is doing something illegal and/or wrong.

And of course, IF you are not a member of it, I hope you join as the
more members, the more they can accomplish,.

As you are in the LA area (as I am) and IF your not a member of
"Atheists United", (link below) you may enjoy their monthly meetings
and/or various functions.

I am a member of both to those as well as "American Atheists" (link
below) and the "Military Association of Atheists and Freethinkers" (link
below)

Sadly, I find MOST Atheists ONLY use rational thought, critical thinking
skills and little things called "Facts" on the existence of one, or more
gods,   On nearly any other subject, they, just like the far right
Christians who deny evolution is a fact, simply deny any facts which
prove they are wrong.

At least the Christians have a valid reason for being stupid and denying
facts as they were programmed to do so.  The Atheists who do it (and it
is, sadly, MOST Atheists, have NO valid excuse for acting very
stupidily.

I Thank You for your time
Please, Take Care!

I really love Nature's Immune Boosting Healing "miracle" I've been
drinking and using topically since September of 1979 when I was 62.
(Studies show Noni Juice boosts your immune system over 150%!
Even after over 13 years of my use, Noni Juice Still, Just Totally
AMAZES Me!

I read Reinhardt’s email and responded with this:

Hi,

Thanks for the email. I'll join the Freedom From Religion foundation. I think I might enjoy the magazine.

I must admit you are the first Atheist Tea Party member I've ever met. What draws you to them?

I'm a libertarian myself and find the Tea Party a bit over the top.

Instead of answering my question, Reinhardt seized the opportunity and attacked. I love the hasty generalizations.

Hello Mojoey

You are welcome, I just got ffrf's latest
edition yesterday.

MOST Atheists ONLY use Logic, Reason, Knowledge, Facts and Critical
Thinking Skills ON the existence of one. or more gods.  On ANY other
subject, MOST Atheists have their heads so far up their asses it is a
wonder they can still breath.

They are either TOO LAZY to get off their ass and do the research to get
sufficient facts to assure they know what they are talking about AND/OR
they are just TOO DUMB to be able to comprehend what the information
they (supposedly) researched
actually means.

Sadly, and based on your comments on the Tea Party, it seems you are a
one of them.

I can assure you there are quite a few CONSERVATIVE Atheists who support the Tea Party's basic tenets. MOST Atheists are TOO LAZY to find out what they are OR to do ANY research into it OR what types of people are Tea Party Supporters

Hell, I will bet YOU have NO clue what the Tea Party's basic tenets even
are and yet here you are making negative comments about them.

Which is VERY SAD!

Being a libertarian is like being a communist for the very simple reason
neither system will ever work in the REAL world where people have
different needs, desires, drives, motivation., etc., etc, Such systems can ONLY work IF EVERY person IN the system agrees to it,will put forth effort to accomplish it AND will be satisfied with the
results.

Such systems are doomed to FAILURE as long as people are the way people
are.

Please, Take Care!
Neil

P.S. In an effort to edify you, I am going to forward some e-mails. One
of which is why I feel I am more qualified to comment on things than
many others are.

Well… At this point I told him I thought he was nuts and asked that he stop corresponding with me. Threats, petty name calling, boasting, and emails attesting to his manly accomplishments soon followed. I made a police report after he threatened to shove a cactus up may ass. I also told him it was unwise to threaten me as I lived just 20 miles away. He and had been kind enough (or dumb enough) to leave his phone number and enough information to figure out where he lived in his emails.

I did not realize he was 76 years old, although it would not have changed my approach. I don’t feel bad about egging him on because he is uncivil to the point where I am wondering if he has brain damage. And I did egg him on. It’s easy to do the immature and the elderly.

So in answer to some of the questions he’s never bother to ask – I’m 50, a vet, and as big as a small bear. I’ve attended a dozen Tea Party get togethers in several states. I find the movement incomprehensible and anti-intellectual. I also find it overly concerned with the legitimacy of President Obama and focused on Christian social issues. So yes, I’ve done my homework. The Tea Party is nuts and so are the people who attend the stupid meetings. I made my mind up based on facts and direct observation. The Tea Party is full of your type – angry irrational old men. Now go away.

There are to many variations for anyone to say there are basic tenets to the Tea Party. I don't blame you for reporting him but doubt much will come of it. This type of action does fit with a recent study which shows conservatives tend to have more fear then courage.

Yeah, Neece over at Heaving Dead Cats ( http://www.heavingdeadcats.com/2010/12/10/neil-c-reinhardt-shows-his-true-colors/ ) was having trouble with him, too. BTW, I see DM was your first commenter here. Fruitcake all around!

Neece said...

Ah, he's gone after you too, I see. This guy is crazy. He's a huge proponent of noni juice and other MLM scams.
You did the right thing. I didn't think to report him to the police, even though he called me the "c" word.

Neece said...

Oh, and he threatened to shove a cactus up my ass too. Nice, huh?

Bret “Ginx” Alan said...

I sometimes wonder if Neil is a deep-cover theist, but I think your hypothesis pertaining to brain damage is probably more likely.

G Wiz said...

And lookie - there's that other nutball 'Dennis Markuze' posting here as anonymous.

brian t said...

The stuff about the immune system was a nice extra touch of woo: do these people actually know what happens when your immune system works at a higher level than normal? You develop one or more auto-immune disorders; not the kind of thing you'd want to encourage, as it happens ..!

No 2 Religion said...

This guy apparently has a cactus fetish!

Btw, is he the reason you turned on comment registration?

DiBattista said...

Nice to hear from you DM! Are you privy to the technology that could locate non-believers and kill only them? Now that is state of the art!

Fribnit said...

I think you may be pleased to learn he has moved on from you and is now haunting me

I linked this thread on my blog to show people that this guy is unstable....

While I was investigoogling, it seems Nasty Nell has moved on to the James Randi Educational Foundation Forum.

His post in the welcome thread was made 14 March, 2012 (He joined on the 10th), and after making 7 posts per day, managed to earn a one week time out.

If he returns after his suspension, I would guess a ban will be forthcoming. But I'm no psychic.

Mojoey said...

Thanks Jreff - I was just talking about nasty Neil today at an atheist meetup group.

JREFFer said...

@ Mojoey: Well, Nasty Nell is back at the JREFF. I found him in a thread where a member was noting with some dismay that his in-laws had purchased a magic water machine--sold via a multi-level marketing scheme, and retailing for $4000.

Nasty Nell loves the caps lock key. He has all of the silly talking points of MLM shills down pat.

But the line of the day was: "And you can stick all your double blind [studies] stuff where the sun don't shine!"

My own personal favorite quote about MLM scams/schemes:

"MLMs are all in the “business opportunity” business, not “pills, potions and lotions.” And all of them sell the same “opportunity”, which is the chance to sell the “opportunity” to others who sell the same opportunity, forever and ever. Amen."
