Why the Right's 'National Day of Blogger Silence' is a National Joke
Did you know that today is National Day of Blogger Silence? No? Well, it doesn't matter. I think it's more important that Michelle Malkin realize that her homepage is so dark that I can't read her hyperlinks on my MacBook Air even with the brightness turned up to the highest level. Perhaps this is intentional. It makes it difficult for me to mock her dishonesty and borderline insanity.
I haven't seen a collective freakout like this since people started buying duct tape by the crate in 2002. It's hard to think of a worse way to try to protect our First Amendment rights than forming an online lynch mob to smear some random voting rights activist and then coming up with all kinds of conspiracy theories about how you're being persecuted as a result.
They've actually terrified themselves. They're convinced that if they say anything further about this poor activist that a SWAT team will show up at their houses and treat them like anti-NATO activist.
They are oblivious to the real repression that is going on. Actually, I should correct that. They fully approve of that kind of repression because it isn't aimed at them.
Personally, I might be willing to stand with these lunatics in support of their First Amendment rights if they weren't such dishonorable and loathsome people. As it is, I won't stand within a 100 yards of these freaks. They have the right to attack people within the bounds of libel/slander laws, and that right should be upheld. Other than that, I guess we can enjoy their fake silence today.
