Hey, He Offered Them Shelter


From The Freedom Daily:

From the “Felons Can’t be Choosers Dept.”

Washington Post reports:

“Never before did I think that we’d be beat up for giving people a warning and keeping people safe,” Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd  told local television crews. “But hey, that’s okay.”

He was referring to criticism that followed a string of tweets from his office Wednesday morning saying that anyone with an outstanding warrant would not be admitted to shelters during Hurricane Irma. Though some of the tweets singled out sexual offenders and predators, others said all people with warrants would be better off turning themselves into a secure space of a different kind — jail.

“If you go to a shelter for #Irma, be advised: sworn LEOs will be at every shelter, checking IDs. Sex offenders/predators will not be allowed,” read one tweet, using an acronym for “law enforcement officers.” The thread came from the Polk County Sheriff’s Twitter account, which uses a photo of Judd.

“If you go to a shelter for #Irma and you have a warrant, we’ll gladly escort you to the safe and secure shelter called the Polk County Jail,” read another tweet, which received more than 7,800 likes.  – snip –

The ACLU sees it differently.

[I do suspect that a convicted and released sexual abuser would also be housed by the county, with some surveillance, perhaps at the jail. — Dave]

Somehow, I think most people would understand that if you go to a shelter, there should be some level of vetting. At minimum, there should be a quick check to make sure you don’t have a warrant. The idea that convicted sexual predators would be barred seems normal.

No, I don’t want people to drown, but I also don’t want perverts and those running from the law to sleep in the same room as law-abiding folks. Is there a chance some drug dealers and perverts will die because they would not go to the county shelter? Yes.

Who exactly would that inconvenience?

This is Not What Peace Looks Like


Pamela Geller essay.

The jihadis came to conquer America and looking back sixteen years later, they have had a good measure of success. The media, universities, schools, culture, etc has submitted to a good measure of islamization. Those who oppose jihad and sharia are demonized and smeared by hate groups like the SPLC and terror-tied CAIR. Our names are dragged through the mud. Our reputations are ruined.

Sixteen years later, look where we are.  For years, public schools didn’t each talk about 9/11.  Now they do. The lessons “emphasize the good that grew out of the “tragedy,”In the UK,  teachers “scared” to teach about 9/11 for fear of being labeled “Islamophobic.” Terror-tied groups like the Muslim Student Association are holding a celebratory cake sale at Hunter College today.

Canada: Antifa Threatens Violence at a Conference Discussing Anti-Islamaphobia


The House of Commons passed an “anti Islamaphobia” motion.

Not quite a law, but it could lead to some actual legislation.

So, a statement against what some think is bigotry against Islam. Or a statement designed to quiet any criticism of Islam. I’m not convinced. 

Now, people would like to discuss it. Seems reasonable. A little late maybe.

Jihad Watch:

Canada

A conference entitled “M-103: Islamophobia Cure or Shariah Trap?” will take place in Toronto this Sunday. The event is organized by a group called Canadian Citizens for Charter Rights and Freedoms (C3RF). Speakers include Dr. Bill Warner, Leo Adler, Deborah Weiss, Anthony Furey, Raheel Raza, Yusif Celik, Anni Cyrus and others. But “organizers are not publicly revealing its location.

Anti-fascist activists, known as Antifa, have already threatened to disrupt the event and intimidate participants.”

[Emphasis in the form of huge text mine. – Dave]

Not being Canadian, I don’t know. Maybe all the anti-anti Islamophobia people are really just mean spirited foreigner-hating Canadians. 

According to David Nitkin, a spokesman for and cosponsor of the conference:

Antifa has used voice mail messages and emails to threaten to go to locations where the conference is being held and “smash” the venues, in order to prevent the conference from proceeding.

The one thing which obviously worse than hate, or anti-Islamic views, or even just bigotry...is violence?

Choose your friends wisely. I tend to think that people wanting to hold a conference on a matter of public debate are far better people than those who threaten to smash things.

Your mileage kilometerage may vary.

Well, This Really Can’t Be Good

I’m Not the Only One Who Figures This is a Blacklist


The David Horowitz Freedom Center sent this out today:

The Left is trying to put the Freedom Center on a blacklist of “hate groups” and run it out of business.

The leftists masterminding the blacklist get results by convincing sites like PayPal to stop taking donations for mainstream conservative organizations like the Freedom Center as a way of “stopping hate.”

It convinced Guidestar, the premier rating site for non-profits, to designate us a “hate group” to scare off donors.

And last week, a leftist site called bloodmoney.org announced a campaign to force Visa and MasterCard to stop processing funds for 100 conservative groups – including the Freedom Center.

Friend, this is serious.

The Left is using the “hate” libel to remove the Freedom Center and other mainstream conservative groups from the national political conversation and smother free speech in America.

This is a new and sinister tactic and could be successful if we don’t act now. That’s why we need your help.

Will you sign our STOP THE BLACKLIST Petition right away?

The Blacklist is a project of the Southern Poverty Law Center, a leftwing smear site which began its career decades ago attacking actual hate groups like the Ku Klux Klan…

…but over the years shifted its agenda to discrediting an array of conservative organizations and individuals who happen to disagree with its far-left agendas.

TruthRevolt, Front Page Mag, Jihad Watch and others are under his direction.

While I can understand people on the left wanting to identify individuals and organizations which are on the “other side,” it seems that the Southern Poverty Law Center and bloodmoney.org are creating lists to kill debate.

The SPLC list was already used to identify a target for violence.

This could get very dangerous, very fast…especially given the reemergence of left-wing terrorist groups like Antifa.

It’s also quite possible that David Horowitz, his websites and associates are incorrect in some of their stances. I don’t care.

In a few short years America stopped naming communists unfairly, and switched to conservatives.

I can’t justify convincing credit card companies to stop doing business with these groups. I also can’t justify news organizations identifying these groups as “…on a list of hate groups by the SPLC…” 

As my dad once said, “Those who do not learn from history, are bound to repeat it. But at least they already own the textbook.”

I Have a Free Lawyer, Can I Spend My Own Money?


Bill Schmalfeldt has promised to publish a letter which he has sent to John Hoge’s attorney about Schmalfeldt’s Lolsuit. Actually, Mr. Nettles represents all of the defendants in the case, including Sarah of BillySez. Follow the links for great discussions of the email.

Here’s Bill’s Tweet promising to publish the email:

Sorry. Wrong Tweet.

NO WAY.png

Here’s the thing. Mr. Nettles is working pro bono, which is Latin for “this one’s on me.” John Hoge has not claimed to be a pauper, and neither have the other litigants…but I’m sure hiring a lawyer would be a hardship. I don’t know why Mr. Nettles has stepped up and agreed to this, but it is a good thing.

When Bill Schmalfeldt temporarily had a free attorney, it was because he claimed to be a pauper. He has also convinced a court to waive fees, based upon his financial situation.

Bill Schmalfeldt is complaining because John Hoge is apparently prepared to spend thousands of dollars of his own money to obtain court transcripts and file an appeal of the Hoge v Kimberlin case, which was recently decided.  

There is a logical difference between the two situations. I look forward to reading Schmalfeldt’s justification for contacting John’s lawyer, but I’m simply worried.

Is it even possible for a pro bono attorney involved in litigation to obtain a Restraining Order on an opposing pro se litigant?

And do Lulz muscles wear out?

We’re really going to miss David Edgren around here.

Hey, I Live There!


 IRMA.png
Been there, done that. Many times. The places hardest hit will be in Florida. Places that always get flooded will flood again. The ground is pretty saturated right now in North Carolina, so downed trees and electrical lines are very possible. Expected 3-6 inches of rain at most. Pray for those who need it.
Especially those who own property subject to wind and water damage. Stay safe everybody.
