… from Walker to me, and from me to you.
The Walk-Man (as I call him, and he’s kind enough to indulge me the pun) graciously invited me to guest-blog here, and I’m honored. I do hope more of you take him up on his open invitation, so that we can make this the A-Number-One website on the Lynch Mob hit list. (Blazing Cat Fur probably occupies that spot already, but I’m sure s/he wouldn’t mind up-and-comers!)
I encourage all my fellow Yanks to jump into the Canadian free-speech battle with both feet. After all, creeping censorship is already happening here, as you should well know. President Obama has already appointed a number of “czars” (answerable only to him, of course) for various public agencies — who’s to say some “czarina” like Lynch isn’t already in place? (Actually, she is — in the form of the American mainstream media. It’s just not institutionalized here … yet.)
As a member of Facebook, I happened on this group, dedicated to the cause, with a respectable membership. It appears to be languishing a bit, so perhaps those of us who are members can liven it up a bit.
With all the mayhem going on in modern life today, it’s all too easy to allow a “backwater” issue like free speech to drop under the radar — but me, I think it’s more important than ever to win the battle against censorship.
If we can’t talk about things, how do they get fixed?
And if we can’t fix them without having fun at some idiot bureaucrat’s expense, what’s the use? Bring it on, lynching Lynchers :)
(A note: My usual pseudonym is “Eowyn,” but someone had the audacity to claim it here in WordPress before me, so I appear as “Theoden’s Daughter.” Hoping the Tolkienphiles get the reference :) )
