I feel sick to my stomach after reading Patterico’s tale of extreme harassment–no terrorization– at the hands of lefties who can’t argue ideas, so they resort to violence to intimidate folks like Patterico into silence instead. They have targeted his employer, his wife, and his family, while bragging about the damage they’ve done to others.
I think about the baby rolling around in utero now, and the preschooler still tucked in bed sleeping upstairs. Of my husband, his career– and how easy it would be for someone to use me to defame him–and I question whether or not I have the gumption to continue in the face of what Patterico and others have endured. Of course, that’s the reaction leftist terrorists Like Brett Kimberlin want me to have, and that’s why they pursue thug tactics: to silence the truth. They don’t expect the Army of Davids to rise against them.
I believe in free speech. I believe in truth and beauty, both of which fall on our side as we expose the underbelly of leftist thought and the culture of death as it shamelessly preys upon the weakest of society.
I stand with truth and beauty, not silence.
And, of course, The Other McCain, who is still in hiding from Brett Kimberlin and his cronies
UPDATE: I’ve never been linked like this. I’m proud to be part of the army, y’all. Thanks!
And ol’ Stacy McCain on the run
All this led to my first link from Memeorandum yesterday. I should have taken a screenshot for posterity ; )
