AM TALK RADIO SAVED FREE SPEECH - TWICE
By Rev. Ted Pike
28 Mar 05
Predictably, the conservative circuit court judge, who was in line
to hear the Christians' case, was dismissed. A radically pro-homosexual
judge, William Austin Meehan, filled his place.
As a national executive board member of the Anti-Defamation League,
Abraham knew that the ADL would maintain a national news blackout.
Consequently, the fate of the Christians was sealed; they would surely
be convicted of "hate crimes" and could receive up to 47 years in
Enter AM Talk Radio!
Because AM talk radio is not fully part of the ADL apparatus of
media control, many AM talk show hosts allowed me, all last summer,
to relentlessly expose the danger to free speech concealed in the
ADL's monster federal "anti-hate" bill, "The Local Law Enforcement
This legislation, which would establish a "thought police" bureaucracy
abolishing free speech in America (as in Canada and Sweden), was
widely believed to be a sure pass. It had been overwhelmingly approved
in amendment form by the Senate on June 15th, 65 to 33. The same
approval was expected from the House.
Yet, largely as a result of the widespread protest we generated,
this Orwellian bill, which the ADL described as their most important
legislation of the year, was defeated for the third time in conference
between the House and Senate on Oct. 8th.
Thus, when the ADL in fury and frustration struck back against
the "Philadelphia 11" Christians two days later on Oct. 10th, AM
radio and I were prepared and battle-ready.
Immediately, we were all over the airwaves calling the attention
of the world to Philadelphia. As a consequence of our efforts, which
were soon assisted by Michael Marcavage, head of the embattled Christians
and his lawyers, millions of Americans became aware of the plight
of the "Philadelphia 11." They also learned of the ADL origins of
the Pennsylvania hate law that empowered the Christians' arrests.
Awakened Americans came to reject the whole idea of "anti-hate" laws.
In short, a case that Lynne Abraham and the ADL thought was an
easy win became their worst nightmare. Angry communications from
around the world demanding an investigation besieged both Philadelphia
city government and the U.S. Justice Department.
Sizzling in the hot-seat, Lynne Abraham and the Philadelphia prosecution
wanted out - fast. As a result, instead of another liberal judge
being appointed to hear the case in the next higher court, the Court
of Common Pleas, I believe that the hidden conspirators, who had
first removed a conservative judge, now favored a conservative: Judge
Judge Dembe was true to her character and released the Christians.
She found not a shred of evidence that they had done anything wrong.
But it never would have happened without the vigilance and cooperation
of AM Talk Radio.
America applauds you! Keep up the good fight!
