“I’ll Get Arrested Next Time”

Recognize these tshirts? That's right - "Stand with Randy"

Insane Jane coordinated a protest in D.C. at the White House this week – more pipeline stuff.

A Lincoln resident / former school teacher / aged and fragile BOLD member had actually planned to get arrested— and she did.

While Nebraskans were getting arrested, Insane Jane threw her group under the bus and took a “step back” to avoid arrest.   And she thinks the authors of this blog are “cowards”…phleeease, Jane….

The Omaha World Herald reported “Kleeb opted to not get arrested Monday so she could coordinate efforts from the outside. She said she planned to get arrested as part of a second group of Nebraskans who will arrive in Washington on Sept. 2 and will join the final day of protests on Sept. 3.”

So, Insane Jane is actually planning to get arrested, and is essentially committing a pre-meditated crime.

A Hastings area reader wrote us this week and said “If Jane is talking about getting arrested…isn’t that some kind of violation of Hastings school board ethics?”  Let’s face it, Insane Jane isn’t exactly the kind of role model we want for our kids down here in Hastings.  So, good point, reader – thanks for making it.

Our favorite line of this OWH article was “Obama was not at home Monday — he was vacationing in Martha’s Vineyard.”  Those BOLD folks just can’t seem to catch people at home when they visit!

    I vote to revive this blog. Jane Kleeb us nothing more than a glory hound. She was rude during the Cowboy and Indian Alliance. She made promises to people for help with accommodation. She never kept her word. Beware of white woman pretending to be the friend of the Indian.

    I don’t know what ethical guideliness are laid out for school teachers, but it would _not_ be an ethical violation for an attorney to engage in civil disobedience. Gandhi, an attorney, certainly engaged in “premeditated” acts of conscientious law-breaking. Martin Luther King, Jr. certainly engaged in “premeditated” “crimes.” Both of these men seem like positive role models to me. They are only “negative” if your purpose is to train good little drones to unquestioningly serve the state. I want children to think for themselves, not slavishly obey whatever laws politicians pass. George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Paul Revere, and Samuel Adams were all law-breakers, too.

    As Dr. King said, “One may well ask: ‘How can you advocate breaking some laws and obeying others?’ The answer lies in the fact that there are two types of laws: just and unjust. I would be the first to advocate obeying just laws. One has not only a legal but a moral responsibility to obey just laws. Conversely, one has a moral responsibility to disobey unjust laws. I would agree with St. Augustine that ‘an unjust law is no law at all.'”

    Those individuals who have the courage to break unjust laws are the best kinds of role models. Breaking unjust laws is not only morally unobjectionable, but worthy of the highest praise.

    This protest isn’t just about environmentalism (if it were, I wouldn’t support it)–it is about property rights. No one has any right to take a family’s land without that family’s consent, law or no law. The fact that Keystone and other players like Keystone have lobbied legislators for special favors and for the legal privilege of eminent domain does not make such takings okay. If I refuse to sell, I should be able to keep my property and that should be the end of it.
