Freedom Isn't Free: Support Bloggers Being Harassed By Thuggish Sociopaths Like Brett Kimberlin #BrettKimberlin

Ace's Post of the Day, June 8, 2012
Bob Belvedere reminds me
he has had the upside down flag of distress
at The Camp of The Saints since January 20, 2009
This is not really a conservative or liberal thing.  The thuggish intimidation tactics being used by Brett Kimberlin and his ilk could be used by anyone, for political or personal reasons.  It is a form of terrorism intended to shut down free speech and should not be tolerated.  Let all have free speech.  Let the market place decide which ideas have merit.

But using lawsuits to shut down free speech?  That is not acceptable.  Nor are cowards who call in false police reports to send SWAT teams to someone's house that could easily result in someone being killed.  I support Aaron Walker, Robert Stacy McCain, Ali Akbar, Patrick Frey, Erick Erickson and other bloggers who have been targeted or attacked by Brett Kimberlin and his allies.  Here is Ali A. Akbar's statement.

I greatly welcome the attention brought to this issue by Senator Saxby Chambliss and Rep. Kenny Marchant.   I would encourage other politicians to act and to put pressure on the Justice Department to investigate what Kimberlin is up to.  I thank the ACLJ and Eugene Volokh in stepping up and assisting in this matter.

Michelle Malkin outlines quite well what Brett Kimberlin and his associates have been up to and how you can respond. Many other bloggers are doing the same today.  Ed Morrissey at Hot Air posted on it.  Others will also be doing so today. Support them and get the word out to your elected representatives.

  1. Thanks for the link. I'm adding you to my blogroll!

  2. You just missed my middle initial. Although if it was K I suppose I wouldn't mind too much.

    1. My bad. Fixed. That "K" is right next to "J" and my right hoof misses sometimes.


I welcome all legitimate comments. Keep it civil. Spam will be deleted. Thanks.
