This Ain't Avon Calling

I wrote once before about a group of UC Santa Cruz students calling themselves Students Against War (SAW), who apparently committed felonies by blocking military recruiters from the U.S. Army and National Guard attempting to participate in a job fair on campus.

Three of SAW's leaders, Sam Aranke, Janine Carmona, and David Zlutnick, placed their phone numbers and email addresses on press release disseminated widely across the internet, in apparent hopes of using this contact information to help organize even larger felonious acts.

Blogger Michelle Malkin posted these publicly available and still easily found contact numbers, which apparently led to some ill-advised and indefensible threats being made against these student criminals.

In retaliation against Malkin, some radical left wing web sites and blogs have taken the extraordinary step of posting not only Malkin's phone number and already publicly accessible email address, but satellite pictures of her house, her physical home address, and descriptions of her family. Malkin is unbowed. Goldstein is calling for a "very public condemnation and ostracizing" of those responsible for targeting Malkin's family.

I'm a little more direct.

This is the link to the FBI Tips and Public Leads form, which I have used to report several of these sites for possible hate crimes investigations based upon specific language used in some of those pages. Those of you who are guilty of these hate crimes undoubtedly know who you are.

I'd advise sleeping light.

That knock at the door ain't Avon calling, and answering it promptly might save you repair work after the warrant is served.

I don't know what the law is where Michelle lives, but this seems a lot like stalking or making threats. These jugheads should be put under a peace bond at the very least, but I'd prefer that they got a criminal record out of this.

The kind of beyond-the-pale rhetoric of the left was bound to create something like this among the weaker-minded of our "students," which is why there needs to be some accountability for speech that crosses the line from expression into criminality.

I admire Michelle's spunk, spirit and determination. She is not deterred. She rightly represents the the same spirit, spunk and determination of services represented by those recruiters. Not everyone is cut out to be a soldier, but for a very small group to unilaterally decide that service recruiters must not recruit from the student body of their school is truly anti-American. It also closes the door to possible enlistment (and thereby representation) of like-minded (liberal) service members. The liberals complain about the services primarily voting conservative and won't let the services recruit form their liberal sturent bodies. That is exemplification of the biting off of one's nose to spite one's face syndrome.

I guess it's all for the best, because liberals make poor soldiers and even poorer generals.

You liken Malkin to real soldiers? Uh...okay.

The liberal trolls over at Goldstein's blog seem unable to grasp two crucial distinctions:

#1) that of posting contact information, where the worst threat is unpleasant messages and one can always change one's number, versus posting maps and photos of someone's house and personal information about their family with deliberate incitement to punish them and

#2) that between re-posting contact information that the organizers have already made easily available through a press release, versus investigating and posting private information that no one authorized the disclosure of.

They are trying to argue it is the same thing, and either that she got what she was asking for or "two wrongs don't make a right." Liberals can draw moral equivalents between anything.

Ah, the FBI Tip Line...I see you've been attending the WB School of payback. Yes, at times I have found solace in the arms of the FBI. They work wonders when it comes to hammering lowlife scum.

I will tap dance on the windpipe of anyone that tries to harm Michelle Malkin or her family.

All she has to do is say the word and an Army of folks like me will come runnin to her neighborhood.

We will protect her the same way the Bikers protect the military families.

I very much admire the spunk of you guys. Thanks to Michelle for elevating the situation at colleges into the spotlight, and EXTRA BIG THANKS to you for reporting these creeps.

Michelle is a tough and spunky gal, but sometimes, the authorities need to do their job, which is to help the law-abiding citizens sleep well at night.

I love the way you guys watch eachother's backs, as I've seen on so many different occassions with a wide variety of issues. Ya'll are good folks!
