Standing up for Stacy McCain

I just blog for fun. This is not a full time job that I do for money. I have other interests that take up much more time than blogging. I have a life and a family. I haven’t even monetized the blog.

But one thing I do have is a revulsion for terrorists masquerading as political activists. When one tries to incite physical harm to another human because they don’t like what the other person is saying, that is just plain wrong.

Take the case of Brett Kimberlin. Here’s what I found out about him. He was suspected of setting off eight bombs in an Indiana town nearly thirty-five years ago. He was called the Speedway Bomber because he gripped Speedway, Indiana with fear. The citizens were terror-stricken. The police investigated the bombings and zeroed in on drug dealer Brett Kimberlin. They suspected he did the bombings to hide a murder, though they could never prove that. Kimberlin was convicted in November 1980 where he got tweleve years for impersonating a federal officer and the illegal use of the Department of Defense insignia. In December 1981, he was sentenced to 50 years, yes FIFTY YEARS for charges relating to malicious damage by using explosives. While in prision, Kimberlin becomes a jailhouse lawyer where he files over 100 lawsuits. Some are even against his own victims. Unfortunately for civilized society, Kimberlin was paroled in 1994. The parole was revoked in 1997 when he committed a civil offense. In 2001 he was again released. And he is still free to this day.

His latest endevor is called the Justice Through Music Project which is connected to something called the Velvet Revolution. It is anything but soft — except for the money it gets from the Tides Foundation and from the Barbra Streisand Foundation. And now, when Robert Stacy McCain brought all of this to light, he had to pack up and leave his home because he was afraid for his life and the life of his family.

This is not what blogging is about. It’s about digging into a story and finding the truth. Then posting it for the world to see. Yes, to see all of this country’s warts; to see that it is not perfect, but that it’s a damn sight better than some liberal socialist hellhole. If you don’t like what is said, start your own blog and post your opinion. Just make sure you don’t create new facts to support your opinion.

It’s about making fun of your political opponents by ridiculing them. It’s called political speech and it’s protected in this country.

It’s about the incredulity of politicians and giving them a metaphorical poke in the eye.

But when someone like Brett Kimberlin is allowed to threaten and intimidate people, ALL bloggers, not just conservative ones, should take a stand against him. Actually, the liberal bloggers should be the FIRST to condemn him because his liberal beliefs bear directly on them.

I understand that sometimes the words get heated. That sometimes the argument escalates. But it should NEVER reach the point to where someone feels so threatened that they have to move themselves and their family for safety’s sake.

Brett Kimberlin should be renounced by both the right and the left. This is my statement. My name is John Holliday.
