Aaron Walker has been banned from writing about Brett Kimberlin for six months by a judge in Maryland.
I have some potentially crazy, stupid, and dangerous advice for Aaron.
1) Go blog about Brett Kimberlin. Violate that unconstitutional order with all due haste.
2) Go take your huge post about Brett Kimberlin and post it on Amazon as Kindle book. Today if possible.
3) When Kimberlin takes you back to court, bring a lawyer or two with you.
I’m not a lawyer. I’m not saying Aaron should take this advice, even. Lawyers can explain why it’s dumb. I’m dumb for even suggesting it. I know I know I know.
But that order the Judge Cornelius Vaughey issued isn’t legal.
It violates the First Amendment of the Constitution of the United States of America. You have the right to write true, non-threatening non-inciting things about public figures like Bretty Kimberlin and nobody can tell you can’t.
If Aaron wrote about Kimberlin, would Kimberline bring Aaron back to court? I sure as hell hope so.
Then a lawyer can speak for Aaron and explain to a judge about how the U.S. Constitution works and why a judge in a Peace Order courtroom in Rockville, Maryland doesn’t trump the First Amendment…even if a litigious bomber and liberal activist doesn’t like.
The First Amendment is a muscle. It needs to be exercised.
