'Thuggish Sociopaths' Harass Bloggers
#1
They aren't talking about the thuggish sociopaths at degreediscussion....yet. Now that the sleazy cockroaches have been exposed to the light and forced to scurry back into the noxious cracks and crevices, isn't it just a matter of time before one of them decides that Kimberlin's tactics are "delightful"?

Freedom Isn't Free: Support Bloggers Being Harassed By Thuggish Sociopaths Like Brett Kimberlin #BrettKimberlin

This is not really a conservative or liberal thing. The thuggish intimidation tactics being used by Brett Kimberlin and his ilk could be used by anyone, for political or personal reasons. It is a form of terrorism intended to shut down free speech and should not be tolerated. Let all have free speech. Let the market place decide which ideas have merit.


But using lawsuits to shut down free speech? That is not acceptable. Nor are cowards who call in false police reports to send SWAT teams to someone's house that could easily result in someone being killed. I support Aaron Walker, Robert Stacy McCain, Ali Akbar, Patrick Frey, Erick Erickson and other bloggers who have been targeted or attacked by Brett Kimberlin and his allies. Here is Ali A. Akbar's statement.


I greatly welcome the attention brought to this issue by Senator Saxby Chambliss and Rep. Kenny Marchant. I would encourage other politicians to act and to put pressure on the Justice Department to investigate what Kimberlin is up to. I thank the ACLJ and Eugene Volokh in stepping up and assisting in this matter.


Michelle Malkin outlines quite well what Brett Kimberlin and his associates have been up to and how you can respond. Many other bloggers are doing the same today. Ed Morrissey at Hot Air posted on it. Others will also be doing so today. Support them and get the word out to your elected representatives.

Free speech is under fire. Online thugs are targeting bloggers (mostly conservative, but not all) who have dared to expose a convicted bomber and perjuring vexatious litigant who is now enjoying a comfy life as a liberally subsidized social justice operative. Where do your elected representatives stand on this threat to our founding principles?

On Wednesday, U.S. Sen. Saxby Chambliss, R-GA, bravely stepped forward to press this vital issue. In a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder, Chambliss decried the "harassing and frightening actions" of Internet menaces who recently have gone after several conservative new media citizen journalists and activists.

GOP Rep. Kenny Marchant of Texas added his voice, telling Holder in a statement that he is "very afraid of the potential chilling effects that these reported actions may have in silencing individuals who would otherwise be inclined to exercise their Constitutional right to free speech." And the American Center for Law and Justice, a leading conservative free speech public interest law firm, announced it was providing legal representation to the National Bloggers Club -- a new media association that has provided support and raised funds for targets of this coordinated harassment. (Full disclosure: I volunteer on the National Bloggers Club board of directors.)

The ACLJ described the importance of the case very simply: "Free speech is under attack."

Chambliss and Marchant called specific attention to one terrifying tactic against these bloggers: SWAT-ting. These hoaxes occur "when a perpetrator contacts local police to report a violent incident at a target's home." Callers disguise their true identities and locations in order to provoke a potentially deadly SWAT/police response descending upon the targets' homes.

As online conservatives -- and now ABC News -- have reported, recent SWAT-ting victims include New Jersey-based Mike Stack, a blogger and Twitter user targeted last summer after helping to expose disgraced former N.Y. Democratic Rep. Anthony Weiner's shady social media activities; California blogger Patrick Frey, a deputy district attorney at Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office who recently posted a bone-chilling account and audio of his summer 2011 SWAT-ting on his blog, Patterico.com; and CNN contributor and RedState.com managing editor Erick Erickson, whose Georgia home was targeted by a faker claiming an "accidental shooting" there late last month.

A common thread among these and other online targets: They all have published web links, commentary or investigative pieces related to Brett Kimberlin, the infamous "Speedway Bomber."

In 1978, Kimberlin was sentenced to more than 50 years in federal prison for drug dealing, impersonating a federal officer and a weeklong bombing spree in Speedway, Ind. The violent crimes left one victim so severely injured that he committed suicide. A civil court awarded the widow of the victim, Carl DeLong, $1.6 million. Kimberlin was released from jail in 2001, but has yet to pay up.

Investigative journalist/researcher Mandy Nagy, who blogs for the late Andrew Breitbart's Internet media powerhouse, Breitbart.com, dared to chronicle Kimberlin's lucrative business and political ventures over the past two years. Kimberlin has a large hand in two well-funded outfits, Velvet Revolution and the Justice Through Music Project, that have received funding from the likes of George Soros' Tides Foundation and left-wing activist and singer Barbra Streisand. The charitable groups have viciously attacked prominent conservative individuals and groups, including Breitbart, investigative journalist James O'Keefe and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. Nagy has been hounded relentlessly online and falsely accused of wild criminal conspiracies by Kimberlin associates for blowing the whistle on his shady online network.

After providing brief pro bono legal services to a liberal blogger who refused to whitewash Kimberlin's past, conservative blogger and lawyer Aaron Walker lost his job. His employer was terrified by the thought of Kimberlin bombing his office and also fired Walker's wife, who had worked for the same firm.

Walker is embroiled in Kafkaesque, free speech-squelching litigation with serial lawsuit-filer Kimberlin in Maryland. Last week, an inept judge who admitted abject ignorance about the Internet -- and appalling apathy toward key free-speech Supreme Court cases -- essentially gagged Walker from exercising his First Amendment rights and blogging about Kimberlin. Kimberlin pulled off a snow job in court, bizarrely claiming that an independent online effort to support Walker and expose Kimberlin's past amounted to a criminal terror campaign against him. Renowned constitutional law professor Eugene Volokh of UCLA is providing pro bono help to appeal the order against Walker.

National Bloggers Club President Ali Akbar was targeted for spearheading charity efforts for Kimberlin targets; stalkers publicized his mother's home, and Texas authorities are now investigating. Another conservative blogger who had the audacity to report on Walker's plight, Robert Stacy McCain, was forced to move out of his home last month after Kimberlin phoned his wife's employer and intimidated his family.

Never in the eight years that I have worked as an independent blogger have I seen such a concerted threat to the fundamental right of citizen journalists to speak their minds freely and without fear of bodily harm. As former Justice Department official J. Christian Adams points out, it is a federal violation of Title 18 U.S.C. Section 241 to conspire to deprive someone of his "free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege secured to him by the Constitution or laws of the United States."

You mean that document written by white, slave-holding freemasons that contained -among other things- the appraisal that you-know-who is worth only 2/3 -or whatever- of Whites? Oh, and slavery, too...

John Bear = Brett Kimberlin
George Gollin = Brett Kimberlin
Gus Sainz = Brett Kimberlin
Bill Dayson = Brett Kimberlin

Brett Kimberlin = Thuggish sociopath who harasses people (and their families, and their employers) solely because he disagrees with their political positions.

We caught them red-handed with their little "Gang" conspiracy. It's time to lower the boom on them the same way people are putting an end to this Kimberlin asshole.

Quote:CNN Finally Covers the SWATting of Erick Erickson
10 June 2012
Written by Duane Lester

CNN contributor and Red State editor Erick Erickson was the victim of a SWATting, a bogus 911 call where someone impersonates another and admits to a crime violent enough to warrant a vigorous police response.

CNN ignored the story, despite it involving one of its own.

With the issue now having the attention of Congress, CNN finally decided to give it some air time.



The man who made that 911 call knew it was possible that what he was doing could get Erickson killed. I suppose it’s possible that was his intent. After all, he said he was going to kill someone else soon.

This isn’t the first time this has happened. Patrick Frey, aka Patterico, was the target of a SWATting in California:



This is a very clear attempt to silence conservative voices. Michelle Malkin reports that 83 Congressmen who have signed a letter “demanding “thorough examination at every level” of these terroristic crimes and threats — that will be sent to Attorney General Eric Holder on Monday. And I can tell you there’s much more in the works. At every level.”

You can help by signing this petition to Attorney General Eric Holder and Senator Eric Holder asking for an investigation. This petition will be delivered to both men. Your signature on it counts.

Please stand for the First Amendment rights of bloggers across America.

Does this sound familiar? It should, it's pretty much a daily "to-do" list for the Douchebag Gang.

Quote:7 Ways Conservative Activists Are Being Harassed By the Left
John Hawkins

The harassment that seems to follow people who get caught in the crosshairs of Speedway bomber Brett Kimberlin has started to put a spotlight on the staggering level of abuse that many activists, columnists, and bloggers on the Right have to endure just to exercise their First Amendment rights. If liberals had to deal with 1/10 of the same amount of harassment that conservatives do, it would be a front page story in every major paper in America and Barack Obama would be giving speeches about it. Unfortunately for those of us in the new media on the Right, we're considered important enough on the Left to try to destroy us, but we’re not important enough to the Right to draw the funding we need to get appropriate legal protection, to properly investigate stories, and to insure that an independent blogosphere still exists five years from now (Sorry, pet peeve). Since many people are unaware of what goes on behind the scenes, it seems like a good time to catalogue just some of the tactics liberals are using to try to stifle free speech on the Right.

1) SWAT-ting: At least three conservatives, Patterico from Patterico's Pontifications, Erick Erickson from Redstate, and Mike Stack from The Crying Wolfe have been SWAT-ted. That means someone called the police, claimed to be the person in question, and told them he had killed someone. The idea is to agitate the police and send them to the target's house where they'll hopefully kill the victim before they figure out what's going on.

2) Lawfare: Many conservatives including James O'Keefe, Pamela Geller, Mandy Nagy, bloggers from Patterico's Pontifications, and Popehat, and Allergic To Bull among others have been hit with frivolous lawsuits designed to cost them money, waste their time, smear their reputation, and fish for information via the discovery process. Rachel Alexander seems to have been targeted by the State Bar of Arizona because of her conservative blogging. Now she's fighting a six month suspension handed down by a lefty kangaroo court.

3) Attacking Speakers: Liberal speakers are much more prevalent than conservative ones on college campuses anyway and the Righties that do get invites usually need security just to be able to speak. Ann Coulter, Bill Kristol, David Horowitz, Pat Buchanan and Richard Perle have had everything from pies to shoes to salad dressing thrown at them. Left-wing thugs mobbed the stage to try to silence Jim Gilchrist and Chris Simcox had a fire alarm pulled during his speech.

4) Hacking: Both Sarah Palin and Mitt Romney have had their emails hacked. Tabitha Hale had her email hacked as well. Mandy Nagy from Breitbart had her Twitter account hacked. I know of at least one other instance, which isn't public, of a blogger having his email hacked.

5) Contacting People's Work Addresses: Robert Stacy McCain recently moved after Brett Kimberlin called his wife at work. Aaron Worthing says he and his wife lost their jobs because their boss was afraid of Brett Kimberlin. Patrick Frey from Patterico's Pontifications has had numerous complaints made at his place of employment because of his blogging and his wife has been targeted at her job as well.

6) Posting Addresses Online: There is no legitimate reason for posting someone's home address online and even less of a reason to actually show up at someone's house. Ali Akbar, President of the National Bloggers Club, recently had a picture of his mother's house posted online along with her address. Karl Rove actually had hundreds of left-wing thugs trampling through his yard, banging on the windows, and they terrified his two sons so badly they cried. After a campaign of harassment by the Communications Workers of America, Tabitha Hale had someone break into her house. Michelle Malkin once moved because of harassment.

Quote:John Hawkins: Speaking of vitriol and horror, Michelle and her family once had to actually move for safety reasons. Long story short, a group of misfits at UC Santa Cruz managed to run some military recruiters off campus and, because they weren’t very smart, they wrote a press release bragging about it, posted it on their website, and used their own home phone numbers as contact numbers. Michelle was one of the many people to link to the website and publish the press release and when, inevitably, these morons were deluged with abusive phone calls, they blamed Michelle for the whole thing and accused her of publishing their private home numbers, which, of course, they had posted on a press release.

In response to this, liberal bloggers and forums that were undoubtedly hoping to get Michelle and her family harassed and/or murdered, responded by posting her phone number and maps to her house online while maliciously and falsely accusing her of invading the privacy of the UC Santa Cruz students. After asking her about the experience, here’s what she told me,

Michelle Malkin: (We had) people posting photos of our past house…people urging their minions to come and stake out my house. ….I had tons of people email me and tell me they were going to come to my home. They posted my private phone number and I had dozens of people calling and leaving crude messages. …Yeah, it was one of those things where you think about your family, you think about your safety, and you do what you have to do. But, does it stop you? No.

7) Porno-izing Conservative Women: Amanda Carpenter had her face pasted onto 400 pages of pornography. Ann Coulter has had graphic pornographic sex stories written about her that were passed around on the left side of the blogosphere. Hustler put together multiple porno movies designed to mock Sarah Palin and they also photoshopped S.E. Cupp with a penis in her mouth. Additionally, Playboy did a "hate f*ck" list that targeted women like Mary Katharine Ham, Laura Ingraham, and Michele Bachmann with comments like, "(On Mary Katharine Ham): You get this one pregnant, she stays pregnant. Karma’s a b*tch, isn’t it?”
