Who will stand with the non-Militia members of Beaver Run Subdivision?
Yeah, I've been gone from Technorati for a while. New gig. Writing for "The Examiner."
One of the things I like about writing for the Examiner is that there's no "news room." I don't have to go to an "editor" to get a story approved. If I want to pick up a cause and run with it, I am free to do so, as long as I obey the rules about libel, etc.
That's why I can write letters like this, that I just posted to the Southern Poverty Law Center through their website contact form.
I am a writer for Examiner.com. I would like to bring your attention to a case of militia intimidation, injustice and landgrabbing that is going on right now. Today. Unabated. We're talking about Bill Looman who made the news recently by his "No Hiring Until Obama's Gone" truck signs. When contacted by a member of Americans Against the Tea Party, his response was "I'll start hiring when there's no Muslim in the White House." When he was visited by WXIA-TV in Atlanta, however, that story morphed into "I'm just a po' misunderstood southern boy who wishes he could hire but can't because of that Obammer feller what they got in DC." And the media, of course, is running full time with THAT version of the story.
The real story, sourced, verified, confirmed, can be found in my reporting for the Examiner.Continued on the next page
