Brooks Simpson has his verbal taser-tipped cattle prod out looking to provoke somebody into a confrontation.
He sez, "Neither Hathaway nor her supporters have been forthcoming on why she’s been so silent on these matters..."
And how does he know? Just because HE hasn't heard anything, that doesn't necessarily mean she's been silent. (There's the Crossroads Pre-schooler Mentality, again. If they don't know about it, it ain't happened. If it hasn't been posted in the comments of his flog, it ain't happened.)
This man has kept up a relentless barrage of harangue and invective against the VaFlaggers for TWO YEARS. And since the I-95 Flag Project announcement, he has harassed and intimidated them, especially Susan, almost EVERY FREAKING DAY. And he expects the Flaggers to NOTIFY him ... about ANYTHING?
Isn't that a scream?
Maybe when hell freezes over.
Nah. Not even then.
He sez,"What I must say astonishes me is that the Flaggers, who are all about free speech, say nothing about Hathaway’s free speech rights in this instance."
"You would think that they would stand up for the free speech rights of their leader, but they don’t."
As Simpson's Crossroads Flog First Amendment Staffer, M. D. Blough, often points out, the First Amendment restricts government intervention/regulation of controversial speech and as far as I know, the feds haven't restricted the speech of any of the Flaggers, including Susan's -- yet.
"I’ve stood up for her free speech rights in this matter..."
What matter? And how have you "stood up" for her free speech rights in whatever you imagine the matter is, when the federal government has not attempted to restrict them? And why all of a sudden pretend to "stand up for her" about anything after two years of spewing verbal abuse and persecution at her and the VaFlaggers?
"... and she’s never thanked me."
Pore widdle Bwooks.... PORE WIDDLE BWOOKS....PORE WIDDLE BWOOKS.... (Cue Red Buttons): NEVah GOTta thanked.... Iddinat awful? Iddinit just awful? He's sooo put upon.
Hey, Simpson. Listen, you fraud. Keep flogging. Just keep it up. Nobody cares but your floggerette peanut gallery, and eventually, even they will get bored with your inability to draw blood, and they'll look elsewhere for juicy red lies, innuendo and character-assassination entertainment.
(Note: I am not speaking for the VaFlaggers. This post is my opinion, but I believe it is basically accurate, based on what I have learned about the VaFlaggers and their leader by some direct communication but much observation. ~Connie)
