Jean B. Elshtain chastises V. McCrossen for "get[ting] hung-up on syntax when issues are involved." Elshtain asks McCrossen to explain "how, and in what fashion, liberals have 'restored cannibalism on a vast scale to Africa,'" as postulated by McCrossen in his last letter. She accuses McCrossen of presenting "a conspiratorial view of history and events" and suggesting that the United States president, Supreme Court, Congress, and citizens are merely "dupes or willing tools of an evil conspiracy."
Howard F. Hamacher suggests McCrossen's words be taken with a grain of salt.
Mrs. David K. Barton chides McCrossen for criticizing the spelling and grammar of others when his is found lacking; Barton suggests that "the sloppiness of his writing reflects that of his political and philosophical thinking."
