New addition to the ‘Grok “Stealing Campaign Signs” Hall of Shame: Jim Babcock of Gilford – Arrested

Jim Babcock - mug shot

Jim Babcock, the campaign sign stealer has been arrested. The silencer of someone else’s Political Speech realizes the legal consequence of  “I was angry.” It is now official:


ICYMI:   “Some rob you with a gun, while others rob you with a pen”

“THEFT BY UNAUTHORIZED TAKING OR TRANSFER (LARCENY)
Remove/Deface Political Advertising

It has taken a while to get to this point:

As stated in Part 5, we wait for the beginning of the next Phase – plea deal? Trial? Penalty? We were told “a Case Status Hearing”. Let’s see what Justice will be met out.

But now, simply for not containing his anger for someone who holds a different political opinion on just about everything. Babcock is a Progressive Democrat (Socialist – Democrat leaders have given up trying to answer “no” that a Democrat isn’t a Socialist; thank you AOC and Squad!) and Norm Silber is a Constitutional Conservative.

As Babcock confessed to the Gilford PD for taking the sign, said his motive was anger, it is clear that like all Socialists do, the end justifies any means. If people don’t know that Norm is running because his sign(s) get stolen, his Right to Free Speech (in this case, Norm’s Political Speech) has been denied. Silenced. Taken off the table.

Babcock decided that it was perfectly permissible to make Norm an “unperson” just like Stalin had those people who lost his favor were erased from history.

Who knew that Babcock read Orwell’s “1984”, not as a warning, but as a “how to” manual?
