Now, keep in my mind, this was while all of the radical homosexual outlets were omitting the second report. They were attempting to protect themselves by protecting MSNBC and Rachel Maddow–all the while on the other side, they were viciously attacking my ministry and my family.
Although all crime is motivated by hate, it is interesting to note that a hate crime is defined by state law as one that involves threats, harassment, or physical harm, and is motivated by prejudice against someone’s race, color, religion, national origin, ethnicity, sexual orientation, or physical or mental ability.
These radicals endorse the enforcement of hate crimes against anyone who looks at them the wrong way; yet when they are guilty of hate crimes themselves, they hope you turn the other way from their hypocrisies when they (by their own unlawfulness) are guilty as charged.
After the second report Maddow and MSNBC did, I took the truth to their front door. I flew into New York and did a press conference to show that what these people were doing is illegal and very dangerous. The media do not have the right to put your life on the line through fabricated reports.
Interestingly enough, MSNBC ends up hiring not one attorney, not two attorneys, not three, but four high-powered attorneys to defend MSNBC and Rachel Maddow. However, seven months after filing a lawsuit, our attorney wanted to withdraw the case from the Superior Court of the District of Columbia and file it in federal court.
The move to another court was a “tactical, strategic decision.” Our attorney then informed Judge Zeldon that he wanted to voluntarily dismiss the case from her court since it had been filed in federal court. Zeldon ruled that she would dismiss the case without prejudice if I would pay Maddow’s attorneys for the work they did in her court, which she assessed to be worth $24,625.23.
Pay the ones defending MSNBC and Rachel Maddow? The ones who put a hit piece out on my family, my ministry, and me? I was not about to hand over $24,625.23 to the attorneys defending those who put a hit out on me, prompting persecution, death threats, and an array of attacks from every angle against my ministry. Not only that, but Zeldon was biased in her ruling as she referred to MSNBC’s attorneys as “distinguished,” never once referencing our attorney in the same manner. We of course appealed the decision, and the result was that the court we appealed to affirmed the lower court’s ruling last month.
While the federal court case was on hold pending the appeal process, it is still very much alive. Neither Judge Zeldon nor this appeal have determined whether or not there was actual defamation by Rachel Maddow. As far as Judge Zeldon’s decision, I am not going to pay off a judge’s favored attorneys because she cannot distinguish between what is right and what is wrong.
Of course, my comments were clearly taken out of context and twisted. Furthermore, the judge’s decision was not a ruling, but a demonstration of prejudice. We never stepped foot inside the courtroom. Therefore, we never lost our claim because there never was a ruling. Really, what this all did was basically tell everybody that I was willing to take it to MSNBC; but the judge, in favor of MSNBC, didn’t want it to go there until I paid the attorneys off. And that is just not going to happen.
