National day of blogger silence

Today SWAC Girl stands in solidarity with conservative websites around the country in a national day of blogger silence. This is a message to readers as well as to elected officials.

Conservative bloggers are being systematically attacked.
Ace of Spades
Erick Erickson
U.S. Senator Requests Investigation of SWATtings; ABC Covers SWATting Story; Ali Akbar is Further Terrorized
ACLJ steps up to defend bloggers targeted over Brett Kimberlin coverage
Bearing Drift explains it here. The Write Side of My Brain wrote about it here.

Today we join other conservative bloggers. Twenty-four hours of blog silence may just be a symbol. It is also a message.

I ultimately decided to pull THYME's regular content in solidarity. The First Amendment freedoms we cherish must not be allowed to die.

I agree that we much do what we can to protect First Amendment freedoms. As more conservative bloggers join in, the stronger our wall becomes to stand up to the harsh tactics of the left.
