The Window War Update: We passed another milestone today.
Well, folks, we passed another milestone today. I received via US Postal Service at my home address my first snail mail death threat. It mentioned the legal description of my property and its precise location, my wife and shooting me at 500 yards. It was postmarked Arizona and was anonymous, of course. Brave, brave collectivists.
My daughter is the one who brought it from the mailbox, and it reminded me that we will have to go back to the SOP that I used during the 90s. Only I will be picking up the mail from now on. I have forbidden the rest of the family to do it.
There is discussion locally about providing me with a militia security detail. I have resisted this up until now. There is also talk of a legal defense fund, as I lack the funds to retain a lawyer. This too I have resisted. If you want to send money to somebody, send it to David Olofson or Wayne Fincher. They are the "men behind the wire" already.
There is further discussion of lining up competent Alabama legal counsel for me. We are awaiting suggestions from folks more knowledgeable and competent than me. I expect a decision on that no later than Monday afternoon.
I have yet to inform the Jefferson County Sheriff of the various threats -- freelance and federal -- as I understand them. I will remedy that Monday morning.
Anyone who reads this with felonious intent may see in it an opportunity for the weekend. If so, they have not studied my thoughts on the tactic of gambit.
There have been no more confirmed reports of broken windows since the Hamilton County, Ohio, incident. I have almost two dozen other reports, none confirmed to my standard of proof, some of these undoubtedly false. I have received reports from two different sources, at least one of whom I know and consider highly trustworthy, that the Democrat party is now telling its affiliates not to file police reports on broken windows, but to have them fixed as soon as possible, as quietly as possible.
There are also a number of verified reports that in some localities, especially those controlled by Dem politicians, there are stepped up police patrols and surveillance of Dem offices -- often to the irritation of street cops who believe they have better things to do.
So, in sum, we have four incidents that might be laid at the doorstep of my blog at Sipsey Street, and much anguished howling by the Dems and attempts to tie me to the Tea Party movement (which they cannot factually do) and the GOP (an even more ridiculous allegation given my record during Dubya's reign and my frequent and loud denunciations of the stupid party as not "republican" at all).
Of course facts have nothing to do with it when Dem propaganda is cranked up.
Here's an interesting thing: I have been denounced as an Orwellian "Enemy of the People" by NBC, MSNBC, CNN, PBS, NPR and even FOX (Glen Beck). In addition, late in the week I was further denounced as a threat to the Republic by so-called "conservative" radio talk show hosts like Medved, Prager and Hugh Hewitt. But here's the common thread.
NONE OF THESE MEDIA WORTHIES IS WILLING TO TAKE THE RISK TO INTERVIEW ME DIRECTLY. NONE. AS IN, NOT ONE.
You have to ask yourself, as I did, why is this so? Are they that afraid of what I have to say? Are they that frightened that they might not be able to discredit me, to defeat me in debate? Are they that nervous about the prospect that I might be able to win other converts to the notion that tyranny is here and must be resisted by any means necessary, including those used by the Founders?
If in fact what I say is that evil, why have none of them taken the challenge of someone they believe can be so easily discredited?
Good questions all.
Still, there is one thing that I can say, even at this early day, just a little over a week into the Window War.
This piddling vandalism, these four incidents of broken windows, has scared them to the core. They denounce it because they want to see no more of it.
Whether the windows continue breaking is not up to me. But I think I can safely say we got their attention. And that makes the risk of the exercise worth it to me. Certainly it was a success. We merely pinged them and they screamed bloody murder.
That being the case, I would like to thank those who threw the bricks and wielded the slingshots. I do not know who you are, but please accept my most humble thanks for the risks you took.
In the end, they may not have prevented a civil war as I intended, but they certainly alerted the opposition that there are unintended, perhaps personal, consequences, to pushing tyranny any further down our throats.
Midnight Irregulars of the Republic -- Window Warriors -- I salute you!
