America To Flying Imams: 'Hello, My Name Is John Doe'!

meetjohndoe.jpg

In "Meet John Doe" last week, Scott at Powerline addressed the lawsuit brought by the flying imams. The complaint names a number of "John Doe" defendants -- unidentified passengers who had the gall to raise their concerns with the flight staff of the US Airways flight they were on. The flying imams assert discrimination claims against these John Doe defendants. In his post Scott suggested that the flying imams may give rise to a new "John Doe Movement" of the kind portrayed in the Frank Capra film "Meet John Doe."

Powerline has already heard from a local attorney or two who have agreed to represent on a pro bono basis any John Doe defendants brought into the lawsuit. Minneapolis advertising man Bruce Schultz has created a logo (above) that could apply to t-shirts and bumper stickers to raise money for a John Doe defense fund. He writes: "Maybe we should start a John Doe club of our own. This one would be to demonstrate that we stand behind the U.S. Air passengers who may be forced into court, hiring attorneys, etc." He thinks "a lot of people would line up to support the John Does."

So do we. We suggest that all freedom-loving Americans help pass around the above logo and at such time that a John Doe defense fund is established - help support it.

As an alternative logo, how about using the words, "Hello, My name is John Doe and the flying imams can kiss my a**!!!
