Wacky censorship claims. These two kooks think that they have been censored.

An author of a book about the CIA complains in a NYTimes op-ed that an innocent citizen asked his publisher not to print (false) allegations that he was a commie spy.

A lawyer visiting Stanford Law school complains that she was denied the designation Visiting Mentor as she speaks to law students. She is under indictment for terrorist activities, and supports communist repression.

Update: I sent this letter to the Stanford management, to help counter an email campaign in Stewart's behalf.
Please don't make Lynne Stewart a law school "Mentor". If reports are correct, she is a supporter of terrorism and communist repression. She has also been indicted for a rather serious crime. She will get her day in court. In the meantime, she is unfit to be a role model or mentor for anyone.

Here are some of Stewart's controversial statements:
I don’t believe in anarchist violence but in directed violence. That would be violence directed at the institutions which perpetuate capitalism, racism and sexism, and at the people who are the appointed guardians of those institutions, and accompanied by popular support.

I don’t have any problem with Mao or Stalin or the Vietnamese leaders or certainly Fidel locking up people they see as dangerous.

It's the first time I've been censored in this way.

Apparently the feds have caught her supporting terrorist activities. If she is guilty, I hope she gets a long prison term.
