As people who know me are aware I’m generally not a profane person, but when I see something like this:
being left on the site of a friend of mine who is a lady in every sense of the word, coupled with stuff like this:
Some of the comments this troll (or these trolls) leave include email addresses of other conservative bloggers. They fill up my email spam. They sign petitions in my name. They email spam to others in my name. They send me emails that appear to be from my friends. They go to other websites and leave comments in my name – with my email address and links back to this blog – that are vile and wretched. Thankfully I have some friends who are kind enough to let me know when they see this happening. As much as I would like to leave comments on all of the blogs I visit, I rarely have time. If I did there would be nothing on this blog. I suspect that’s the reason they’re doing what they do – to distract me. To shut me up. They’ve even broken federal law by calling my home using phony caller ID services. The police officer I filed a report with was very kind and understanding. My phone company assured me that once the report is ready they will be happy to provide me with the telephone numbers where those calls really originated.
it tends to get me quite perturbed.
Karen’s crime you see is to be not only a highly effective conservative blogger but the conservative who came in first in the Mom blogs best political mom contest.
Now of course to the professional left that has shielded the occupods as they committed actual violence this kind of thing is small potatoes, but this is, in my opinion another example of the cultural divide that has divided left and right.
Dealing with these types is the price for success for conservative women, but don’t expect those who have spent months going after Rush for comments a month ago that he apologized for to say a word about this, after all, the simple act of being conservative alone to them justifies any such action, let alone beating out liberals in a motherhood contest.
I’d like to say I’m surprised to be seeing this, but I’m rapidly reaching the point where my expectations of folks on the left who i haven’t had the pleasure of meeting or engaging in person are reaching Breitbart proportions.
Anyway Karen don’t worry, none of us who know and love you are going to give any credence to any such nonsense posted by these folks.
Update: Stacy notes the trouble going on at the Conservative Commune as well and detects and asks:
Hmmm. Who could be doing this, I wonder? And why?
Hmmmm attempts to compromise conservative blogs via twitter bots, home harassment of effective conservative political bloggers, I can’t imagine who might be interested in neutralizing us
