(Found at the Jawa Report)

Apparently the good people of Topeka are busy expressing free speech of their own:

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - Topeka police are investigating vandalism at the Westboro Baptist Church, known for its protests at the funerals of soldiers killed in Iraq.

Police said graffiti spray-painted on the church read, “God hates intolerance” and “God hates the Phelps,” an apparent reference to the church’s belief that God is punishing the United States for its support of homosexuals.

The vandalism was discovered on the day after a Baltimore jury awarded 11 million dollars to the father of a fallen Marine who sued the church over its protest of his son’s funeral.

Two homemade firecrackers were found outside the church, and area streets were shut down as a precaution.

Church leader Shirley Phelps-Roper said the damage is the latest of numerous acts of vandalism committed to the church’s property over the past 17 years.

Oh dear… We are so… SADDENED to hear this. Really. We swear.

So, in the midst of our very real and not at all fake sorrow at this horrible event, let us all be thankful that nobody had the silly idea to, I don’t know, board up the “church” during their next service, pour a few thousand gallons of gasoline over it and drop a match.

Because that would be really sad.

We’d never be able to pay for all of the champagne.

Since our ridiculous laws prohibit us from dealing with terminal tumblefucks like phred phaggot phelps in the only way proper, which is pistols at dawn (or better yet: Firing squad behind the barn), one way of getting to the disgusting maggots is by hitting them in the pocketbooks. And one Marine’s family recently did just that and succeeded (link thanks to LC & IB Jay, who also has a link to the head of the cult itself, losing whatever marbles it might have left on air).

A Baltimore federal jury awarded nearly $11 million Wednesday to the father of a Marine killed in Iraq, deciding that the family’s privacy had been invaded by a Kansas church whose members waved anti-gay signs at the funeral.

It was the first-ever verdict against Westboro Baptist Church, a fundamentalist Christian group based in Topeka that has protested military funerals across the country with placards bearing shock-value messages such as “Thank God for dead soldiers.”

We’re still not quite where we need to be (that would be where WE get to carry signs saying “Thank G-d For Brutally Tortured, Maimed and Exterminated Braindead Cultists”), but it’s certainly a step in the right direction.

The compensatory damage award alone, $2.9 million, was nearly triple the net worth of Westboro and the three members on trial, their attorney said.

According to their accountants, anyway. Maybe the IRS should look into that as well? Tax evasion comes with prison time, after all, and nothing would be more poetically just than phred phuckhead phelps locked up in a cell with a sex-starved homosexual former linebacker.

Fred W. Phelps Sr., Westboro’s founder, vowed to appeal to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit, in Richmond, Va.

“It’s going to be reversed in five minutes,” he said. This case, he added, “will elevate me to something important,” as it draws more publicity to his cause.

It’ll “elevate” you to something, that’s for sure, you sick, deranged old pervert. But, by all means, let’s have it out in the open. Let’s spend a LOT of time going over the details of the case in public, let’s spend MONTHS displaying to the American public, in loving detail, just exactly what it is that you sister-humping sickos do in your spare time, then let’s see what the American public decides to “elevate” you to. Hint: You might not like it.

The jury found the defendants liable for violating the Snyder family’s expectation of privacy at the funeral and for intentionally inflicting emotional distress.

Snyder’s lawsuit spurred a constitutional debate over how far the First Amendment should extend to protect the most extreme forms of expression.

Some legal experts said the judgment could be a setback for those who believe in broad free-speech protections.

The ones who believe that intentionally inflicting extreme emotional distress on vulnerable individuals is “protected speech”, at any rate, and we don’t really give a good fuck about how they feel.

“I think when speech is a matter of public concern it still has to be protected, even when by social standards it is extraordinarily rude and outrageous,” said UCLA law professor Eugene Volokh.

University of Maryland law professor Mark Graber said the size of award, which included $8 million in punitive damages, could have a chilling effect on speech.

“This was in a public space,” Graber said “While the actions are reprehensible, the First Amendment protects a lot that’s reprehensible.”

Try walking into a da hood and start throwing racial slurs around, then screech that you’re just exercising your First Amendment rights in the public square as they pound your teeth in and break every last bone in your body in alphabetical order, as they bloody well SHOULD. I understand what you’re trying to say, and I’m ALWAYS leery of the law getting involved in speech, but you have to realize that words DO have consequences.

Don’t want the courts to punish people for speech? Fine, you may have a point there because who’s to say where some future activist court might draw the line, but then let’s have back dueling rights. Also, let’s pay more than lip service to the “fighting words” defense in the aftermath of a bloody beating. Because I swear to G-d, if one of my Heirs passes away before I do and some phuckhead and his minions show up to piss on his grave, then somebody is going to DIE. And I do mean DIE. And I’ll fucking well bloody ENJOY it.

phred phelps isn’t “just another activist expressing his opinion.” He went there, to that funeral, with THE SPECIFIC INTENT OF CAUSING EMOTIONAL DISTRESS. If you’re going to bring up the “public square” defense, then explain to me why his First Amendment rights wouldn’t have been equally well served, say, four counties away from the funeral? Plenty of “public squares” there for him to express his opinion on too.

It’s the difference between me exercising my right to call someone a moron here on my site and me calling on his home every five minutes around the clock screaming it at him and his family. The first is permissible and free speech. The latter is best dealt with through half a dozen loads of double-aught buckshot.

Thatisall.

It’s been a long time coming.A lot of blood..a lot of grief, the crackle of weapons fire, faces..names..videos of deaths that have sickened even the most hardened of men, creating a visceral, gut tearing hate and white hot rage.

They sought to sow seeds of terror and destruction..they were answered in soldier’s coin, one by one, the 3rd Cavalry hunted them down and wiped them out..or engaged them in battle and forced them to flee, like the craven, cowardly heartless scum that they are.

In the heat of the desert sun, over the roar of the engines, the hum of the radios..the tramp of weary feet in the streets of Baghdad, Ramadi, Al Anbar, Fallujah….over them all comes a triumphant call to victory.

A lined, weatherbeaten face, worn down by years of sandstorms, grief, fear, terror…and finally, he lifts his eyes unto God and exuberantly cries with joy.

CAN YOU HEAR HIM, O MIGHTY WARRIOR?

Hear him, ye fierce of heart..and know that your loved ones, and many you never know, are bursting with pride, our eyes filled with tears of elation,you are so far, far away…and our gratitude and love knows no limits.

Here is the sound of victory, here is what you have worked so hard for,..what you have fought for..bled for..died for…

This is why we fight.

In the Name of God the Compassionate and Merciful

To the Courageous Men and Women of the 3d Armored Cavalry Regiment, who have changed the city of Tall’ Afar from a ghost town, in which terrorists spread death and destruction, to a secure city flourishing with life.

To the lion-hearts who liberated our city from the grasp of terrorists who were beheading men, women and children in the streets for many months.

To those who spread smiles on the faces of our children, and gave us restored hope, through their personal sacrifice and brave fighting, and gave new life to the city after hopelessness darkened our days, and stole our confidence in our ability to reestablish our city.

Our city was the main base of operations for Abu Mousab Al Zarqawi. The city was completely held hostage in the hands of his henchmen. Our schools, governmental services, businesses and offices were closed. Our streets were silent, and no one dared to walk them. Our people were barricaded in their homes out of fear; death awaited them around every corner. Terrorists occupied and controlled the only hospital in the city.

Their savagery reached such a level that they stuffed the corpses of children with explosives and tossed them into the streets in order to kill grieving parents attempting to retrieve the bodies of their young. This was the situation of our city until God prepared and delivered unto them the courageous soldiers of the 3d Armored Cavalry Regiment, who liberated this city, ridding it of Zarqawi’s followers after harsh fighting, killing many terrorists, and forcing the remaining butchers to flee the city like rats to the surrounding areas, where the bravery of other 3d ACR soldiers in Sinjar, Rabiah, Zumar and Avgani finally destroyed them.

I have met many soldiers of the 3d Armored Cavalry Regiment; they are not only courageous men and women, but avenging angels sent by The God Himself to fight the evil of terrorism.

The leaders of this Regiment; COL McMaster, COL Armstrong, LTC Hickey, LTC Gibson, and LTC Reilly embody courage, strength, vision and wisdom. Officers and soldiers alike bristle with the confidence and character of knights in a bygone era. The mission they have accomplished, by means of a unique military operation, stands among the finest military feats to date in Operation Iraqi Freedom, and truly deserves to be studied in military science. This military operation was clean, with little collateral damage, despite the ferocity of the enemy. With the skill and precision of surgeons they dealt with the terrorist cancers in the city without causing unnecessary damage.

God bless this brave Regiment; God bless the families who dedicated these brave men and women. From the bottom of our hearts we thank the families. They have given us something we will never forget. To the families of those who have given their holy blood for our land, we all bow to you in reverence and to the souls of your loved ones. Their sacrifice was not in vain. They are not dead, but alive, and their souls hovering around us every second of every minute. They will never be forgotten for giving their precious lives. They have sacrificed that which is most valuable. We see them in the smile of every child, and in every flower growing in this land. Let America, their families, and the world be proud of their sacrifice for humanity and life.

Finally, no matter how much I write or speak about this brave Regiment, I haven’t the words to describe the courage of its officers and soldiers. I pray to God to grant happiness and health to these legendary heroes and their brave families.

And it didn’t help one bit that Morgan Stanley unloaded their entire holding in the rag, nor that Merrill Lynch dumped a huge load as well.

So beat the rush, unload stocks in al-Jazeera on the Hudson today or you might end up holding nothing but a reasonable facsimile of the birdcage liner itself: A stack of worthless paper.

Couldn’t happen to a nicer bunch of fuckwads.

So the U.S. government won’t foot the bill for protecting Ayaan Hirsi Ali from Islamofascist murderers, the brave woman who has stood up and protested the “religion of peace” bull so often spouted by President Weeniedick. We guess his principles only go so far, which isn’t very far at all.

The Netherlands, from which she originally fled because they’d rather not offend the people who want to rape, mutilate and murder her, won’t have anything to do with her either.

Enter little Denmark, the country who, once again, refuses to budge in the face of terror and intimidation. “Hey, if you want, Ayaan, you can come over here. We’ll be happy to protect you from the goatfuckers who don’t understand the meaning of free speech.”

Not that it ought to surprise anybody. They were the ones, I’m proud to say, who snuck their Joos out under the noses of the Nazis because they’d be damned if they’d let the occupiers run their citizens off to death camps.

If only Washington DC combined had the courage and principle of a Danish toddler but, alas, that’s quite unlikely to happen in our lifetime.

We just got a call from Australia the other day from LC Brendan, telling me that I might want to make sure that I still had some sparkly in the fridge, because he had some excellent news to share with me:

SAN DIEGO (AP) — An investigating officer has recommended that the Marine at the center of the biggest prosecution of U.S. troops in the Iraq war should not stand trial on murder charges, a defense attorney said Thursday.

Staff Sgt. Frank Wuterich, 27, of Meriden, Conn., is charged with the unpremeditated murder of 17 Iraqis in Haditha in 2005. The former squad leader allegedly directed his Marines in an assault that left 24 men, women and children dead.

I wish I could say that I were surprised by this development, but I really can’t. From day one or, at the very least, from the time that LCs and IBs Kit and Heidi were kind enough to share what they’d learned with me (which was a lot. They’ve both been working their arses off on this whole bogus Stalinist show trial), I knew that the whole case was rotten.

It came to be at a time when the MSM were publishing frivolous and unsubstantiated claims of abuses and crimes by our troops on a daily basis, it relied almost entirely upon wildly contradictory eyewitness testimonies from, shall we say, sources with dubious affiliations and loyalties, the prosecution was stonewalling any attempts by the defense counsel to examine the evidence etc. etc., and all that coupled with an obvious need on the part of the Administration to “prove to the world” how Good We Are™, even if it meant stringing up a few innocents in a blatant human sacrifice ritual made me reach the conclusion that something stunk to high heavens here and that the whole “case” would fall apart.

If justice worked, that is, which was my only real worry. Particularly as the charges fell apart and were thrown out one by one, leaving the Stalinists on the prosecution team with only one scalp to hunt for, that of SSGT Wuterich. I know how desperate coyotes will get when they’re starving and rapidly running out of prospective dinners, so I was a bit worried that they’d end up getting him as a consolation prize, justice be damned.

Looks like that’s not going to be the case, provided that the Corps follows recommendations, of course. However, even if they DO follow this recommendation, SSGT Wuterich isn’t quite out of the woods yet:

Lt. Col. Paul Ware recommended that Wuterich should be tried for the lesser offense of negligent homicide in the deaths of five children and two women, said Neal Puckett, Wuterich’s attorney.

This too is bullshit. He shouldn’t be charged with a damn thing. Furthermore, the Corps owe him AND the rest of the innocently accused one HECK of a compensation package for dragging them and their families through this nightmare. Lives and reputations have been destroyed, finances wiped out and families torn to shreds because of this desperate attempt to create a blood sacrifice to World Opinion™, and somebody needs to fucking pay for that. Not that any amount of compensation can fully restore what has been done to these servicemen, the time wasted alone is time they’ll never have back, but in order to teach the prosecution vultures a lesson and maybe make them think twice in the future before they whip out the knives and start leading their human sacrifices to the altar.

And MOST of all, Jack Murthafucker needs to be strung up from the nearest utility post, figuratively speaking, if we can find one strong enough to support his bloated, corrupt, slandering carcass.

How about those “cold-blooded killers” NOW, Murthafucker, you buddy-fucking, honorless, worthless waste of DNA?

What goes around comes around, Jack. COUNT on it. Not only have you done immeasurable damage to the reputation of those innocents; your ridiculous, unsubstantiated shameful comments have further encouraged our enemies, enemies responsible for the killing of our countrymen. Their blood is on YOUR paws, MAGGOT! “Aid and comfort”, anyone?

Looks like Jack Murthafucker is getting closer to being buried in a flapping heap of our enraged feathery friends (thanks to Sir Christopher):

A federal judge has ordered Rep. Jack Murtha (D-Pa.) to testify in a defamation case related to the deaths of Iraqi civilians in the town of Haditha in 2005, according to the Associated Press.

Murtha, a former Marine. accused Marines of “cold-blooded murder and war crimes” during the Haditha incident. Frank Wuterich, a Marine sergeant involved in the incident, has sued Murtha for libel and invasion of privacy over his comments.

According to AP, U.S. District Judge Rosemary M. Collyer wants Murtha to explain why he made this statement and any documents he has related to the incident.

Gee, isn’t that fun, you buddy-fucking, grand-standing donkey’s arse? Looks like some judges still take the law seriously and won’t automatically give you DC dorkwads a pass just because you’re, well, DC dorkwads.

From the AP: ‘You’re writing a very wide road for members of Congress to go to their home districts and say anything they choose about private persons and be able to do so without any liability. Are you sure you want to do that?” Collyer said, adding later, ”How far can a congressman go and still be protected?”

Hopefully not as far as acting as judge, jury and executioner, libeling U.S. Marines before they’ve had the benefit of a trial, much less an actual investigation. Either way, it’ll be interesting listening to the unindicted ABSCAM co-conspirator (unindicted only because he didn’t want to take the bribe right away, mind you) trying to defend himself in court.

Of course, the mouthbreathing knuckledragger at Politico doesn’t agree with the ruling. To him, Congresscritters are a breed apart, above the law of the land and should most certainly be allowed to libel and slander to their widdle hearts’ content. After all, how can they possibly do their job if they’re not allowed to walk around calling anybody they want to rapists, murderers, cold-blooded killers or child molesters?

Frankly, I don’t understand this ruling at all, and I wouldn’t be surprised if it is appealed by the Justice Dept. and/or House general counsel’s office on behalf of Murtha. Murtha, who can say some inappropriate things once in a while, was clearly acting in his capacity as a lawmaker when he made the comments and is thus protected by the Speech or Debate Clause from any type of prosecution for official acts.

It used to be that the one of the principles of a civilized nation was that there was one law for all people, but apparently the ignorant clown writing that article doesn’t agree. To him, some animals really are more equal than others and should be treated as such. Immune to prosecution no matter what they do, presumably because they’re so much better than we are, or because they can’t do their jobs if they have to be tied down by the same laws that the rest of us plebes have to follow.

Unless, of course, Mr. Bresnahan thinks that the law as a whole is unfair, in which case I suppose it would be alright for me to accuse him of being a cold-blooded killer, a child molester, a rapist, a bank robber or whatever else I could think of.

Murtha has a right to say what he did under the Speech or Debate Clause, even if he was wrong about what happened. When we start restricting what members and senators can say in the performance of their jobs, then we are really in trouble as a country.

Oh we are, are we? I suppose it would be The End Of The Republic As We Know It™ if a precedent against 535 anointed philosopher kings was established, barring them from committing libel and/or slander without legal consequences?

No, you drooling serf, we would be in trouble if we created a political upper class unbound by the laws that they themselves pass to control the rest of us. If I wanted to live in that kind of a society, I’d move to Tehran.

Maybe you should do that instead since, by your standards, it’s a much better place to be?

The Good Guys™ took out another of Michael Moore-on’s Minutemen™ in Iraq.

WASHINGTON (AP) — U.S.-led forces have killed one of the most important leaders of al-Qaeda in Iraq, and recent similar operations have left the organization fractured, a top American commander said Friday.

“Abu Usama al-Tunisi was one of the most senior leaders … the emir of foreign terrorists in Iraq and part of the inner leadership circle,” said Brig. Gen. Joseph Anderson.

Al-Tunisi was a leader in helping bring foreign terrorists into the country and his death “is a key loss” to al-Qaeda leadership there, Anderson told a Pentagon news conference via videoconference from Baghdad.

Anderson said recent coalition operations also have helped cut in half the previous flow of foreign fighters into Iraq, which had been at about 60 to 80 a month.

He credited the work of the Iraqi Department of Border Enforcement and U.S. teams.

Unnamed sources state that Susan Sarandon & Tim Robbins are rumored to be making arrangements to attend the funeral and issue eulogies for the deceased. (Well, we just started the rumor, but at least we’re the first to report on it.)

F.E.T.E.
