Kevin Walsh was a political prisoner held by the Secret Service for calling George Bush a War Criminal
Kevin Walsh was a political prisoner
arrested by the Secret Service because
he had the gall to say that George Bush
is a modern Hitler.
[No, whatever my disagreements with Hitler, I would not insult Hitler in that way.
I said that Bush deserved to be killed, and I stand by that statement. --Kevin Walsh]
The Secret Service jailed Kevin Walsh as a political prisoner because Kevin was a gun owner and legally carried a concealed weapon for self defense.
[I'm sure this was a contributing factor, but it was clearly not the entire reason.
Although there have been many assaults on the Second Amendment, the fact remains that
there are many firearms owners in the USA, some of whom lawfully carry concealed,
who do not suffer government oppression. Why are they left alone? Because they are
either apolitical or their political views are mainstream. There are plenty of heavily
armed pro-war pro-Bush people, and there may even be some heavily armed liberal
Democrats (although many of these people are in favour of gun control and so wouldn't
want to arm themselves), and these people are generally left alone by the government.
The main reason I was targeted was that I was openly anti-war and anti-Bush, and not
only that, that I openly supported the Iraqi Resistance and the Palestinian Resistance
and the right of the people of Iraq and Palestine to use deadly force to remove those
who unjustly occupy their countries. True, there are some anti-war and anti-Bush
people who are not targeted, but these people are usually pacifists who are unarmed.
The government generally tolerates your exercising your First Amendment rights, as long
as you don't exercise your Second Amendment rights as well. The government tolerates
your exercising your Second Amendment rights, as long as you don't exercise your First
Amendment rights as well. If you insist on exercising both of these rights, you can
expect trouble. Laro Nicol and I have some strong differences in political opinion.
He is more of an anarchist, and he does not share my opposition to Judaism. Still what
we had in common is that we strongly opposed Bush and the war in Iraq, we upheld the
right of people to engage in armed struggle to end oppression, and we exercised our
right to bear arms. It is that combination which the government will not tolerate.
Well Kevin Walsh was not arrested because
the Secret Service didn't have any evidence
to charge him with any crimes.
Instead Secret Service Special Special Agent Ray LeBeau
asked the State of Arizona to declare that Kevin
Walsh was insane and had Kevin locked up in
the Maricopa County Mental Hospital.
