Here’s a paragraph from TDPK’s Motion to Dismiss in the federal Walker v. Kimberlin, et al. lawsuit.
Plaintiff has no right as a “media entity” to special protection. First, although he is a mere blogger rather than a media entity, …
I’m just a blogger, but Hogewash! is a media entity. The courts say so. See Indep. Newspapers, Inc. v. Brodie, 407 Md. 415, 430 (2009). Aaron Walker is a blogger too, and Allergic to Bull is a media entity as well.
… the law does not give any right to Plaintiff to gag Defendant …
Nothing in either the Virginia or federal lawsuit seek to gag TDPK. They seek to prevent him from gagging others, especially Mr. Walker.
… to insult Muslims with impunity.
Having reviewed a good deal of Mr. Walker’s blogging, I haven’t found him to be insulting to Muslims as a group. It’s pretty clear that he doesn’t have much respect for terrorists (whether they are Muslims or not). He also doesn’t seem to have much love for enemies of the First Amendment (whether they are Muslims or not). BTW, not all the Muslims in his novel Archangel are bad guys.
Nor does the law give immunity to Plaintiff to assault Defendant in a courthouse.
<mockery>Given the fact that the video of the event quite effectively demonstrates that no assault by Mr. Walker took place, one wonders why TDPK keeps bring it up. Indeed, TDPK made a threatening gesture by raising a metal object (his iPad) up in front of Aaron Walker. That could be an assault.</mockery></fisking>
Get your popcorn ready, folks, and stay tuned.
Tick, tock, tick, tock, …
