I don’t even know where to begin. The support my fellow bloggers and our readers have given me since I wrote about the ongoing harassment I’ve endured is just amazing. Most of us do this not for money, we do it because we’re committed to preserving (and restoring) the freedom and liberty that made the United States the last best hope on earth. One of the most important freedoms we enjoy is that of speech, and when it comes under attack we come together.
Not that money doesn’t help, so thank you to those of you who hit my tip jar, and to Stacy for suggesting it. A great big thanks also to my good friend Zilla, who has also been subjected to online stalking and harassment but still speaks out, despite fighting a debilitating illness.
We need to stand together with those who are fighting for freedom, and for good against evil. We need to make sure that they know that not only do we have their backs, but also, we need to show those who will stoop to the lowest of low tactics to destroy the righteous that we will not be cowed.
Please join me in showing support for The Lonely Conservative, who is being unjustly attacked, by sharing, Tweeting, emailing, re-blogging the message that the enemies of freedom will never ever silence the truth tellers. Send me your name (or username) and/or the name of your blog (if you have one) and I will update this post with a roll call of those who stand in solidarity for goodness and against evil. You can post in the comments section to this post, at the A-C page or the Zilla page on facebook where this post will appear, you can Tweet me or email me to say you want to be listed here and I will add you to the roll. I will make sure that Karen knows that we are with her. Also, please keep in mind that another great way to encourage a blogger is by rocking that blogger’s tip jar.
Here’s the list so far:
That was such a happy surprise this afternoon when I got home from work. My browser kept freezing up and I had to drive my kids here and there and make dinner in a hurry. It was pretty hectic and crazy, but I did it all with a big smile on my face.
There may be some crossover here, but thanks to those who linked to my earlier post and/or Zilla’s post: Hogewash,Reaganite Republican, Big Fur Hat at iOwnTheWorld, Zilla, The Other McCain, Conservative Commune, Loopy Loo, Jackie Wellfonder, Enjoyment and Contemplation, The Impolite Canadian, Nice Deb, Blazing Cat Fur and Lady Liberty. I also want to thank those of you who have known about what’s been happening and have been there for me when I just needed to vent or a shoulder to cry on. I’ll never forget that.
If I missed anyone, please let me know. Sometimes trackbacks don’t show up the way they should. You’re all the best. Despite all of the drawbacks of blogging, days like today make me realize it’s all worthwhile. Not only are we fighting for the future of our country and our children, we’ve built a fine little community of support. It warms my heart to know there are so many good people out there in the world, and I really believe we outnumber the villains.
I don’t know why they bother trying to shut us up. The more they try, the harder we fight. They never learn.
Now it’s time to get back to my regularly scheduled blogging.
Update: Zilla’s list is growing:
Update: I just realized how long it’s been since I’ve updated my blogroll. I think I just added everyone that was missing.
Oh, and I heard this song a little while ago and it reminded me of the current situation.
Then there’s this video that I posted a while back that’s kind of fun.
Ever since I saw that video the first time this is the image that comes to mind every time I hear from my haters. I call him “Wanker Troll.”
