Nonsensical trolls

This has to be the most incomprehensible hate mail I've ever received at the DetNews comments. The person was apparently responding to this post. Seriously. The SEO spammers make more sense. I have no idea what this person is talking about.
Picking Scabs Again

We have real stories happening TODAY and you are still scratching at scabs from the last administration.

The Chinese had plenty of people like you working at newspapers during the cultural revolution. Everything the party did was good, while spending all of your precious essence seeking to destroy the "capitalist roaders" and other phantom enemies of the state.

I have only read 4 of your "pieces", but in that small sample you have criticized all 5 Black Types and you have never criticized a single member of the 5 Red Types. I know most here don't know what that means, but I know you do. Is this how you "Angrily Open Fire" on your enemies?

At some point the Detroit News will have to do the responsible thing here...

Talley, Tallahassee, Fl
I found this so baffling I even spent some time googling the phrases to try to make sense of it. I mean there is a tenuous connection between "red types" and the Chinese Cultural Revolution but not sure how to make that leap in the context of my posts. Anybody want to take a stab at interpreting this one?

A disgruntled Stendahl fan?

Did you support the Army and criticize the Church?

Not sure what the "five types" means.

Oh, wait, I got it:
Sans Serif

Yeah that has to be it. Disgruntled typographer. Just blue-pencil him/ her.

Or use other fonts. This could be serious. He might be a printer's DEVIL!!!

They're worse than type "A"s, those type "O"s. Will we never be free from crimes in print?

He left an explanation this morning at the blog. He was indeed talking about the Chinese Cultural Revolution. Pretty bad analogy considering the dynamics are sort of the opposite in this country.
