Domestic Terrorism

If you haven’t heard about the team of Leftists who are harassing and threatening bloggers, trying to silence them, you need to learn something about what they are doing—with the financial support of the Tides Foundation, the Heinz Foundation, the Barbara Streisand Foundation, and others. Freedom of speech is under serious attack. This is bone-chilling. Maybe leftists have been calling people who happen to disagree with them “Fascists!” for so long because they have in mind the real thing. In any case, we not in the realm of the metaphorical anymore. This is real. It can happen here. It is happening here. Some links:

Two additional thoughts: (1) Aren’t the left-wing foundations backing these people thereby opening themselves up to some substantial legal liability? I would think a RICO lawsuit against the bunch might reveal some interesting links. And it would be valuable to know who has been taken in by con men and who actually supports what they’re doing. (2) These people have found a real and important weakness in our legal system. Innocent people can be accused of wrongdoing, slapped with nuisance suits, have SWAT teams called on them, be driven from their homes with threats, find their employers and families under attack, and on and on, and have virtually no recourse. Companies know this; they’re familiar with the extortionist character of the legal system. But applying that to individuals is a new and deeply troubling tactic. Yes, the people doing this are evil. But there is a systemic flaw that enables them to do what they are doing. It needs to be repaired.
