“Walking the Fire” for Truth and Justice
For these past 9 months, I've walked the fire for truth and justice. My reward will be freedom, not just for me, but for bloggers in Winnipeg and other places.
When I say freedom, I'm not talking about avoiding the jail sentence I'm facing. In terms of the bigger picture, that is of no consequence. I'm talking about the freedom to speak out against corruption or injustice in your corner of the world in a way that the Mainstream Media (MSM) can't ignore. That is the real threat we are facing here today.
Right now, I'm facing an angry adversary who wants to take away my computer and shut me down as a deterrent, not just for me, but for like-minded bloggers and those who would dare to stand up against corruption and injustice.
When a person, organization, corporation, etc. sues you for defamation, applies for a gag order, and persecutes you in the media for telling the truth, you have blogged well. Even when they speak ill of you, the MSM inevitably sheds light on the injustice and/or corruption you wrote about. In both my court cases, the corruption has subsided due to increased MSM scrutiny. Consequently, the razor-sharp commentaries which exposed uncomfortable truths and named names will not be making a re-appearance on this blog--these have served their purpose.
Judging by the near-empty gallery in the court room yesterday, my fellow bloggers (or anybody else) didn't expect me to put up much of a fight in court. Well surprise, surprise! Not only did I not default, but I filed a Motion Brief and put together a decent Affidavit, complete with exhibits that should encourage an out-of-court settlement (my preference).
I have 2 fellow bloggers whom I consider to be my friends and allies in the cause against corruption and injustice: Henry Makow and The Black Rod. If you want to be my friend, walk the fire with us—-but understand there will be times that the fire you walk, you walk alone. That's the price you pay for standing up for what you believe is right.
