In 2013, protect and support your local blogger more than ever
The role of bloggers as the tip of the conservative arrow has been much in the news this week.
The David Gregory gun-law issue is one example, as is the reaction to the newspaper which published the names and addresses of law-abiding gun owners. It is, as we wrote, Learning to Love Alinksy’s Asymmetrical Political Warfare.
It’s not new, of course, but it will become more important, as explained in this video at Blazing Cat Fur from Canada:
Bloggers are vulnerable to lawfare, the malicious use of legal processes to intimidate and run up legal fees which most bloggers cannot afford. The Aaron Worthing story and the SWATting of Patrick Frey (Patterico) are example of abuse of legal process from the left.
Another example is the aforementioned Blazing Cat Fur, which is subject to unique harrassment from the left and Islamists because of Canada’s speech codes which resembles what we see on college campuses where alleged protection of multi-culturalism and human rights is the pretext used to shut down non-liberal speech.
As explained by his wife, Kathy Shaidle of Five Feet of Fury, Lawfare: Canadian Muslims plotting to shut down my husband’s blog:
As we’ve known for some time, Canadian Muslims have been putting together a lawfare case designed to silence my husband’s blog, BlazingCatFur.
Now they’ve admitted this online at a Khomenist site, asking for donations to support The Man Who Is Suing Us in separate actions related to Canada’s Human Rights Commissions.
They specifically say they are targeting my husband because he is a “Zionist.”
(Note too that they spout the usual stuff about just wanting to be good Canadians in multicultural, inter-faith-dialogue Canada — while planning to destroy anyone who dares to criticize them.)
As many of you know, my husband’s investigations uncovered the sex-segregated mosqueteria in a Toronto public school and helped halt government funding to radical Palestine House, to name only two stories he broke which were later picked up by the mainstream media (usually without credit, with Sun News being the lone exception.)
His videotapes of Muslims calling for “another Holocaust” and so forth have been seen by tens of thousands….
It looks like we will be fighting three politically and ideologically driven lawsuits in the new year.
Last May I wrote, Protect and support your local blogger:
Protect and support your local blogger. Think where you’d be without us.
In 2013 that will be more true than ever.
Donations tax deductible
to the full extent allowed by law.
people don’t realize how expensive this stuff can be.
my server fees (dedicated with cpanel) are 100/month and software licenses run about 250/yr.
“Support Your Local Blogger”
Because as Luke says, “He does resemble James Garner more than Jack Elam.”
Because as Luke’s son says, “He looks like a secret agent.”
Because as Luke’s wife says, “He’s an Ivy League lawyer? But he’s so sweet!”
I’m with you.
Bloggers are also vulnerable to hackers. I note an increasing number of conservative blogs that have been designated as “attack” sites or as containing viruses or malware, often by the evil Google.
Andrew was right. War.
“Another example is the aforementioned Blazing Cat Fur, which is subject to unique harrassment from the left and Islamists because of Canada’s speech codes which resembles what we see on college campuses where alleged protection of multi-culturalism and human rights is the pretext used to shut down non-liberal speech.”
My dear Professor, let me correct that last line:
“….pretext used to shut down what they mislabel as non-liberal speech.”
You and many of your readers may call yourself “conservative,” which is well within your right, but there is absolutely nothing liberal about supporting murderous fascists. Islamism is a murderous form of fascism that has as much to do with Islam as Nazism had to do with Catholicism (Herr Hitler was reportedly of Catholic stock.) They claim differently, of course, saying that their perverted beliefs and plans have something to do with religion instead of an excuse for world conquest, but that is an issue for another day.
Anybody who says they support the Palestinian cause, and yet also claims to be a Liberal is a liar. The proof is in the Hamas Covenant, which is dedicated to murder and world conquest. Liberals believe in individual freedom, and anybody who claims that opposition to murderous regimes is “non-liberal speech” can and should be called on it.
Yeah, I’ve read Alynski, too, but I believe in the merciless application of truth, which cuts even deeper than ridicule.
Yay Hitler .
Prize for Valerie !
He may have been Catholic but most of all he loved to paint landscapes. He was close to being admitted to a big art school in Vienna but failed the Human Drawing Component . He could not draw humans for the life of him but his landscapes were promising.
So much for Art School.
Art Schoolscaused the death of 49 million peoples & obliterated the landscape to boot.
I am having a very difficult time following the facts in these cases/blog posts. Where are the copies of the complaints that were filed, substantiation, and background info? When this kind of thing happens, some of us might be able to do a little more than donate a few bucks. But without knowing where the lawsuits are and what the issues are, can’t do.
