Stacy McCain reports on the latest news regarding a certain lying terrorist, and asks the musical question. If threatening Conservative bloggers is wrong, why does the GOP not want to be right
“Where are those spineless Republican bastards in Congress when we need ‘em, huh?” I shouted, trying to explain to a couple of young Beltway professionals the concept behind National Day of Blogger Silence. “They expect us to carry their message and fight their fights, and here we’ve got bloggers getting SWATted and bloggers going to jail and not a single Republican on Capitol Hill has said a f–king word! Not so much as a g–d– two-minute floor speech or a two-sentence press release statement!”
A couple of passersby on the sidewalk glanced over at the patio of the Pennsylvania Street bar where I was, uh, exercising my First Amendment rights — not to say ranting like a madman — earlier this afternoon. Having come to Capitol Hill for a meeting, I’d bumped into these two D.C. professionals who are young friends of mine, though not quite protegés, although one of them was someone whom I once advised to stay away from the Culture 11 debacle. She didn’t listen, and now doesn’t even mention on her LinkedIn profile her involvement in that infamous New Media catastrophe. But I digress . . .
Monday, or yesterday if you prefer, Ali Akbar, was targeted by certain miscreants for daring to talk about those aforementioned miscreants, his mother’s house was photographed, the address was given, and friends of Ali were named as well. Needless to say, Mr. Akbar was none too pleased, declaring this WW3!
Monday afternoon I was off the grid when Ali Akbar called to tell me that “Breitbart Unmasked” had published a photo and the address of his mother’s home in Texas in a viciously mendacious attack on theNational Bloggers Club. While I had no Web access at the time, I was able to send a Tweet from my cell phone, and pardonnez mon français.
Does the phrase “Don’t mess with Texas” ring a bell? Maryland courts have been incredibly lenient with the Kimberlin/Rauhauser axis, but Ali assures me that Texas won’t take too kindly to the purposeful harassment of one of its law-abiding citizens. Ali’s mother has harmed no one, and whoever thought up this sick stunt might find themselves prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law — Texas law. IYKWIMAITYD.
Yes, Texas IS not Maryland, it is different here. This also touches a nerve with me because I live near Dallas, which is near Ft. Worth, which is where Ali’s mom’s house is located. An Ex-Con, who has also done stellar blogging about the Miscreant Intimidation Squad, is NOT AFRAID to post where he lives as he makes clear to the douche nozzles photographing his house. Oddly enough, he lives in Pinellas Park, which is near Tampa, where I was born, and raised, and lived until 1995. In fact, I remember delivering appliances to the apartments where he resides. I guess it is a small world. An Ex-Con also posts these words, which I think sum it up
Point one: The thing to remember is that this is not about me or my family, it is about thuggery and intimidation to silence free speech.
My second point: I am not important in this situation. I stole their thunder so I now am a zero, without value.
Circle the wagons around those that make a difference. I am old and disposable. Ali, Stacy, Liberty Chick, Aaron, Patrick, all of them are young and important players in this effort. Circle the wagons on them.
