Imagine what a nerve we must have struck to cause a newspaper editor in Idaho to spend money and time attempting to silence a citizen blogger nearly 2,000 miles away.
Almost every day for eight years I have researched the Refugee Resettlement Program of the UN/US State Department as a completely charitable endeavor so that just regular folks in America might know what is being done to their communities.
We have been extremely careful to give attribution and urge readers to see the original article when we snip news articles on which we comment.
And now, over 6,600 posts later, along comes an editor of a small city paper who calls me a “thief” in print as if it wasn’t enough to hire an attorney to send me a letter.
Imagine spending even a minute trying to silence a blogger!
What the heck are they hiding in Magic Valley, Idaho? Maybe the newspaper there should do as much research as I have on how the secretive Refugee Admissions program benefits a few big businesses and then tell Idahoans the truth because they, taxpaying citizens, have every right to know who is changing their communities and why!
