Free Speech…

…is a right granted to aging, hipper-than-thou, pro-choicers — not upstart kids radically opposed to the killing of human beings. After all, the pro-choice movement have the catchier slogans, and they’re really good at philosophy. (Pro-life is a lie! You don’t care if women die!(lol, what?)) Anyways, I got a message in my inbox today from Nathaniel Thomas of Northern Kentucky University’s pro-life group, and I hope you will all spread it around:

Mr. Barnes,

I understand that you are a busy man, but I and my friends are in need of your help. The following explains this situation nicely. If you could do us the honor and favor of getting this out there on your blog (I also intend to contact Al Kresta this afternoon), we would be immensely grateful. I apologize if this all sounds confused or rushed, but I have been out until 3AM repeatedly either talking to the cops or guarding our Pro-life display from further vandalism, so my head is not as clear as it might be. And this takes place on Holy Week, of all weeks….

At my own Northern Kentucky University, the campus pro-life group (Northern Right to Life) currently has a display against Abortion up.

It is an entirely legal and approved display in the correct provided display area.

And yet someone, or some group of people, has decided that it is not okay for us to have such threatening things as baby clothes, red tape, and a sign explaining that 1 out of 4 babies is murdered through abortion.

They have vandalized our display twice in as many days. Both times the damage was done under cover of darkness, with only the eyes of their possible fellow transgressors and God upon them as they went about their criminal business.

Those who shriek the loudest for Freedom and Truth and Fairness are those who are denying myself and my associates the Freedom of Expression, our right to assert what we believe as Truth, and our ability to fairly represent ourselves.

This sort of behavior has been a part of the local environment since the founding of the campus pro-life group, when a certain Professor Sally Jacobson, who was let go on account of her behavior, took her class outside to tear down the crosses in our Cemetery of of Innocents display.

There has not been a year when flyers, crosses, and other displays have not been torn apart or broken. Some of our members have caught people in the act of tearing down our flyers. We have endured despite this, and we shall continue to do so. Though of different creeds, we are united in purpose.

We will not stop until Abortion is dead, or we are, even if it takes our whole lifetime and the lifetimes of those that shall take our place when we pass on. We will take buffets, spitting, and curses….

At your service,

Mr. Nathaniel Thomas Hall

And if I might add a message to the brilliant individuals whose rights are more important than Nathaniel’s — stop. You’re not making any one like you, nor your crumbling cause. May one day all such whackness cease.
