The anti-troops brigade at UC Santa Cruz has now called in the left-wing blogosphere’s kings of hate to attack me. For what? For linking to a Students Against War press release bragging about booting military recruiters off campus and for re-posting publicly available contact info for the SAW press machine.
The unhinged lefty bloggers who did and said nothing to condemn the violent tactics of the UC Santa Cruz thugs are treating me like I’m the terrorist. I’m not going to bother linking. You can find their trash easily enough on any search engine. While they whine about the death threats that SAW organizers allegedly received, you should see the filth and threats against my family that their minions are sending. Here’s an uncensored sample (and by the way, the disclaimer on my contact page makes clear, “All e-mail is subject to print, including your name. If you don’t want me to publish your e-mail, or if you would like to remain anonymous, just let me know.”):

I’m happy to see that there are a few Daily Kos commenters who have their heads screwed on straight:
Reader Jozef points out that in addition to the website I linked to that still has the SAW contact information publicly available to anyone, there are several other sites that also still list the information as of 9:25pm EDT:
Writes Jozef: “Concerning your latest post on threats received for posting the contact information of the UCSC students, I was wondering about one thing: will the same e-mail writers send similar e-mails to Indymedia, Infoshop News and Oread Daily, all of which continue to feature the original SAW press release?”

All this because I think the punks at UC Santa Cruz who ran our military recruiters off their campus should be held accountable.
Oh, my stomach hurts from laughing. Now, they are raising money to try and sue me.
And unhinged propagandist Keith Olbermann misleads whatever viewers he has and names me the World’s Worst Person of the day (click link for video – .WMV file)…on a day when a Palestianian suicide bomber committed a bloody, brutal act of terrorism against innocent civilians at a Tel Aviv restaurant and Hamas officials rallied behind the carnage.
More from Olbermann Watch.
Oh, and for the record–not that the facts matter to the unhinged–not one of the three SAW students whose contact information is still publicly accessible across several websites has e-mailed me [*or phoned me or contacted me in any other way*] as of 12:30am EDT 4/18 [*as of 10:00am EDT*] to request that I remove anything.
Brainster’s Blog has more background on the SAW punks.
