Here's two reasons, now...
Funny thing, a mob. It gets rolling and everyone is thinking they are doing something worthwhile.
Something that needed to be done.
Like the fellow front and center...pointing at the bodies.
Or the couple flirting with each other.
Or the guy at the far left who just told a joke...
What is their demeanor?
Laughing boy here had postcards of the event.
How does it go from FREE and OPEN society to a lynch mob?
OK, maybe I have gotten out of the level of what is happening to Limbaugh.
Personally, he is a pig.
A ridiculous old fart bag with nothing but yesterday's dreams...squashed.
I don't give a rat's flying behind about him.
But the First Amendment...THAT'S something else.
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
Now, maybe some beggars want to hide under some personal interpretation of the meaning of this Amendment. But plainly, the Amendment speaks to Freedom of Speech...even to jackasses like Limbag.
Perhaps some think I am to harsh in my appointing a LYNCHING to getting him offline?
Well, vigilantes of ANY kind are incorrect to a civilized society. Whether or not you agree with that windbag ...
is up to you.
But when there is redress possible (why ISN'T Ms. Fluke taking him to court on this matter of slander?) then that route should be taken. Anyway, any lawyer with a brain can smell meat and shred Limbag for enough to keep his head under the ground for longer than just separating his sponsors from his lame butt.
But a MOB SCENE?
Folks, you have a rope and you're looking for a tree.
Now...to be sure, there were THREE fellows accused of raping that girl. The two in the tree are Thomas Shipp and Abram Smith. One, however, escaped due to the hand of a good sheriff.
James Cameron returned to Marion in 1930 to receive an official pardon from Indiana Governor Even Bayh for the part he played in the 1930 assault incident for which he was originally arrested.
He was also given a key to the city.
63 years later pardoned for a crime he never committed and that Mary Ball later testified that she had NOT, contrary to the accusations against the three men, even been raped.
Well, that's Indiana, and it is also their shame.
AND also the result of a mob.
