BLACKFIVE: Free Speech Blogburst

We here at UCV count the members of Blackfive as our peers and friends. We stand firmly with them at all times. The freedom to say what you think is one of the cornerstones of our democratic republic. Anyone who does not agree with what you say has the right to say he disagress and express his opinion. Threats of bodily harm and false reports to police is not protected speech, it is intimidation. Its also justification for pre-emptive action.

BLACKFIVE: Free Speech Blogburst
This is a Team Blackfive post.
There is no one at this blog who has not sworn to defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign or domestic. Several have literally provided blood, sweat, and tears to that oath, and to protect rights inlcuding the right to free speech. Several here have been threatened and/or dealt with security issues related to upholding that oath and participation at this site.

Today, several bloggers face threats, threats that have caused them to take security measures up to and including moving to keep their families safe. You need to learn about Brett Kemberlin, what he was convicted of doing, what is being done, and who is funding it. The best places to start are at Michelle Malkin, Instapundit, Ace, Day-by-Day, and Jawa.

Team Blackfive stands in solidarity with them, and is glad to join the blogburst to shine some light where it is clearly needed. Free speech is never truly free -- it is only free because good people stand up no matter the threat to make it so. Team Blackfive stands, do you?
