Digger’s Realm reports that Stephen and Virginia Pearcy (a/k/a Mr. & Ms. Amerikkka) are now threatening certain bloggers with lawsuits over coverage of their anti-American soldier-hanging-in-effigy exploits.
Mark Butterworth looks to be the first victim of the Pearcy’s hurt feelings – read this post concerning a phone call he got from Mr. Pearcy not long ago. Understandably, this has pissed Mark off, and hopefully he will countersue for the emotional distress of receiving a phone call from a Marxist.
To clarify, which I think is necessary due to some of the comments here and at Digger’s place, I don’t support the whole “contact the employer” strategy. It’s not that different from Michael Rogers’ gay outing crusade against other bloggers by harassing the bloggers’ webhosts. Contacting employers may even be worse, since you’re going after someone’s livelihood. Is it illegal? Probably not. Is it a questionable tactic? Probably.
This caveat does not change the fact that I would still like a bear to shit in Steven and Virginia’s mouths while they sleep.
