I was wondering why I couldn't reach the Power Line and Hugh Hewitt sites yet today and this e-mail appears to explain it:
Has anyone else noticed that the whole rightwing blogosphere seems to be down just now? I've tried Instapundit, Tim Blair, James Lileks, Hugh Hewitt, Bill Whittle, Michael Totten, and several others and can't access any of the sites. By contrast, Kos, Matthew Yglesias, and Marc Cooper seem fine. Perhaps some kind of DOS action is in progress?Once again, the fascist Left - who always shriek that they are the only ones who support free speech while demanding silence from all who disagree with them - show that instead of trying to win hearts and minds with a more persuasive argument, they attack and destroy and silence they're ideological foes.
"Diversity" is just another lie of the Left. Rather, it means that they have black, white, yellow, red and purple polka-dotted fascists in their ranks; not that they allow non-fascist thoughts to be uttered. They're no different from the Taliban. Don't forget it. Remember when the Dem activists slashed the tires of Stupid Party voter vans? Probably not because the Treason Media was busy repeating the Big Lie of voter supression in Ohio and wouldn't tell of REAL voter turnout supression by Democrats. Well, they got jail time this week.
Four Democratic presidential campaign workers were sentenced to jail time ranging from four months to six months Wednesday for puncturing the tires of Republican vehicles on Election Day 2004.Where do you think the children of those Dem pols learned how to use vandalism to prevent opposition? Not many more steps needed to morph into a Fourth Reich of fascist totalitarism and anyone without an Air AmeriKKKa bar code tattooed on their neck rounded into camps for extermination, is it?
The men had pleaded no contest in January to misdemeanor property damage. A fifth worker was found not guilty.
Those who pleaded no contest were Sowande A. Omokunde, the son of Democratic U.S. Rep. Gwen Moore, D-Milwaukee; Michael Pratt, the son of former acting Milwaukee Mayor Marvin Pratt; and Lewis Caldwell and Lavelle Mohammad, both from Milwaukee.
They originally were charged with felony property damage but accepted plea deals on the lesser charge.
Milwaukee County Circuit Judge Michael Brennan rejected prosecutors' recommendation of probation and no jail time.
"This case had to be a public example of what can happen when you interfere with voters' rights," Brennan said.
The men faced a maximum nine-month jail term and fines of $10,000.
**** UPDATE!!! ****
Michelle Malkin reports that the problem is that Hosting Matters, the server company for these sites is being DDoSed from Saudi Arabia. Gee, our pals attacking us? What's that all about, Dubya? When are you going to wake up and smell the jihad and start protecting your people from the enemies without AND within?!? Al Queda and the DNC are all part of the same fascist network. Either fight or raise the white flag, you dope!!!
