Such injunctions are allowed when such speech is deemed to be libel and defamation and that’s after the court has ruled as such. Since July of 2013 you have called Brett Kimberlin a pedophile. Here’s a snippet from September 5, 2013: And there you have it. Brett Kimberlin rightfully objected to being called a pedophile as he was never charged with or convicted of pedophilia and yet here’s Hoge doubling-down for his readers on that.
Let’s see…you’ve also called Brett Kimberlin a convicted domestic terrorist bomber: Hoge sorta got it right – Brett Kimberlin was convicted on the bombing charges but not domestic terrorism as the charge of domestic terrorism didn’t exist back in 1978.
These are not isolated incidents, folks. Hoge has repeated these things on his blog many times over and which is why he now finds himself embroiled in a defamation suit.
You can’t call someone a pedophile in print if it’s not true. You can’t call someone a terrorist in print if it’s not true. You can’t call someone a murderer in print if it’s not true and you can’t accuse someone of a crime they didn’t commit in print if it’s not true.
Every journalist, blogger and newsman on the planet knows this. Everyone that is except Hoge.
When it comes to libel, you don’t have first amendment rights and you certainly can’t make a libelous statement in print and claim you’re just expressing an opinion.
This is what Hoge doesn’t seem to understand.
Yes, Hoge, words do have meanings and I invite you to learn the meaning of the words: bankruptcy, destitution and insolvency.
Because when you lose these lawsuits you’ll be introduced to these concepts and find them not at all to your liking.
The mockery continues…
