Fresh from a jail cell, Pastor Ian Bernard of the Church of the Free Load in Keene, is taking up the cause of harassing female legislators. He posted two of the videos I posted yesterday and had a little tantrum to go with them, which you can see at their website: Free Keene
Ian whatever-his-name-is-this-week begins by referring to Rep. Wall as a "slimy politician" in his heading. The first sentence is where the fun begins:
"What does state rep Janice Wall have to hide and why is she so unfriendly?"
For starters, she's State Representative Janet Wall. Also - not wanting to be followed by a creep with a camera doesn't mean she has anything to hide. She asked him to stop and he kept on badgering her. In some places that might be considered a crime.
"Dave Ridley of the Ridley Report returns to the state house to attempt to hold members of the judicial committee accountable on what, if anything, they are doing about Thomas Ball’s self-immolation nearly three years ago."
It's clear that Ian Bernard hasn't troubled himself to learn anything about the legislative process in his adopted state. Like any three year old who wants something RIGHT NOW, he's having a petulant little tantrum. It's not Representative Wall's fault that Tom Ball killed himself in 2011. Nor is it the job of the House Judiciary Committee to stop the actual 2014 legislative work to have a gabfest about Tom Ball, just because Ian Bernard thinks they should.
The cherry on this shit sundae:
"I sure hope I recognize her next time I’m in the state house, because I’ll be sure to grab my camera and ambush interview her as well. In fact, any activists living in the Madbury area should also try to interview her about why she’s so unfriendly to independent media."
Pastor Freeload announces his intent to hound Rep. Wall, and he urges his fratboy followers to do the same. All because Rep. Wall refused to speak to his fellow FreeLoader, Dave Ridley. That's all she did. And for that, they're threatening continued persecution. What is wrong with these people?
They'd never, ever, in a million years do any of this to a man.
