Sorry Aaron and Stacy, I'm too scared

When the creators of Southpark were embroiled in the "Mohamad picture" kerfluffle and getting death threats, the writers/artists at The Simpsons had one of their intros be Bart writing something like "Sorry Southpark, we'd support you but we're scared." That's where I am right now.

I spent this week intending to write today about how Brett Kimberlin, the convicted "Speedway Bomber" was using the nations criminal and civil courts as a club in his efforts to keep  any, not just conservative,  journalists or bloggers from mentioning that he is indeed convicted of setting a number of bombs in the town of Speedway, IN as well as committing perjury.  But now that I've come to it, I realize that as a single parent who wants to get involved in local politics I'm not sure what is safe to say. Since I don't want Kimberlin or his associates stalking and harassing myself, family, or friends in the way that anonymous calls start "just happening" to be made to bosses, landlords etc. of those such as attorney Aaron Walker, ADA Patrick Frey, and blogger R.S. McCain who have dug into his past and his funding by the likes of George Soros, Theresa Heinz-Kerry and Barbara Streisand, I don't want to say anything that might bring their notice.

And you know what?  That is just plain wrong in a nation with free speech.  The whole point of the free speech part of the 1st amendment was to ensure that factual speech about the connections between a convicted domestic terrorist and the big name donors of a political party be protected.  The whole point of having a government at all is to protect those who are law-abiding from those who are not. When did that change? And why have we the people allowed it to continue?

  2. That seems unlikely, from what's been demonstrated by his behavior so far. At least this way people aren't on their own being picked off one-by-one. I think that was part of Breitbart's point in re-tweeting the vile things sent to him and encouraging others to do the same.

  4. I stayed largely on the fringes of this one to be honest, a few tweets and such here and there, but no large posts (on any nonexistant blog anyway.)
    Like you, (although for different reasons) I can't afford to be dragged into protacted legal battles. A LA ADA (Patterico) is having trouble handling this. That doesn't bode well for us.
