"We must take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented.” - Elie Weisel

“If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor." - Desmond Tutu

"There comes a time when neutrality and laying low become dishonorable. If you’re not in revolt, you’re in cahoots. When this period and your name are mentioned, decades hence, your grandkids will look away in shame." - David Brooks

    If you know he is this way, why write about him giving him legitimacy?
    A few weeks ago he called up the nigt radio show of Michael Savage. He spoke about the dead bomber terrorist and the brother who is now in jail.
    This is ratings for him. You increase his radio audience by drawing attention to him. People become curious and then turn him on in the mornings. You fall right into his trap! Just ignore him. Don’t make him worth your time or this blog.

    If only it were that easy, Joann. Look at the church – I sometimes wonder if Tobin is just his puppet, and on a night that House Judiciary is hearing five abortion bills, Healey, the diocesan chief lobbyist, is instead on a stage with him. And if his friend David Caprio becomes the new chair of the R.I. Democratic Party…he has so much power already that simply ignoring him won’t make him go away.

    And how about all the cheesecake on his website and Facebook page? It reminds me of how, while over here training for a holy mission, Mohammad Atta and co. were busy making the scene at strip clubs in the evil empire he called America. Certainly an unimpeachable source of moral guidance, right?

    We see the arrival of a fascist coalition in Rhode Island, and we just can’t believe it.
