(Politico)   Upstate NJ GOP political candidate sues the local Democratic Rep and Democratic party for spreading the "outrageous and false" accusation that he's a member of the Oathkeepers. He's not a MEMBER you see, he just uses their logos and invites them to rallies   (politico.com) divider line

He's stigginit to the libs.  I'm sure the rubes will send him money.  That's the game.

Since he's almost certainly a public figure for purposes of the law here, he'd need to prove reckless disregard of the truth. Given that he's associated himself so closely with the Oafderpers, that's gonna be almost impossible to prove. My guess, summary judgment for dismissal.

Yes, we know snowflake.  We know.

Interesting that being called an oath keeper is now an actionable slander. Hopefully it continues on with other similar groups up to and including "republican"

I feel his pain. People always get the wrong idea when they see all the Nazi paraphernalia around my house.

Calling a NJ county "upstate NY" is a burn, but I'm not sure who is burned.

But you don't understand!!!  He's never filled out an application to join them!  That's totally a thing that exists!!1!!!!

Just like every member of the Nazi party had to submit a resume, fill out an application and go through multiple interviews!  That's how racist organizations work, right?

Dafatone: Calling a NJ county "upstate NY" is a burn, but I'm not sure who is burned.


Yep.  I saw "Sussex County" and I cocked my head like a dog hearing a far-off whistle.  The closest NY has to a Sussex County is Essex County, where Lake Placid is.  Nobody gives two shiats about what political thought comes out of there.  Pretty, though.

I can't see much from my house - my backyard is a steep slope up the mountain my neighborhood is built on (I'm basically at the bottom), and there's lots of trees around. Best view looks southeast, away from NY (which suits me fine) and toward the next mountain over.

I am about 2 linear miles from the NY border though.

// and about a 5 minute drive from Mountain Creek

haha "chinless" - why is that? I've seen what you mean though... is a condition of being chinless that makes you into a Teabagger? What a funny thing! It seems every chinless man I know, is a right-winger; not so much derpy, but probably do go full derp around their 'own kind'.

The chinless boogaloo is best danced in private.

That's... always been a huge part of it.

Because minus a legal system your only recourse for personal grievance and bullfarkery is public violence.

You mean vigilantism.

Law enforcement is public violence, just authorized by the state.

Sure. But I'm talking about the law in general, and more specifically civil court matters. American policing is a whole separate nightmare.

And I suppose that you can call the legal system violence but heavy financial penalties are a damn sight better than drive-by shootings or basement knee-cap breaking.

You're mad at him when you couldn't even figure out it wasn't about the Proud Boys?

Seems like an opportunity to me.

Just make sure he stands up and states for the record what the monetary damages are of being associated with the organization.

Then play that clip on loop for the Oathkeepers.
 
2022-01-24 3:43:53 PM  
I'd like to see him have to explain in court exactly why being associated with the Oath Keepers is defamatory. I mean, if this is just a collection of law-abiding tourists like the GQP says, wouldn't you want to be considered to be one of them, Mr. Hayden?

It's helping his chances of getting elected.  You'd think by now Dems would realize calling Republicans members of racist cults is saying the quiet part out loud.
