While I prefer to post something uplifting on a Friday, this story is much too important to ignore. Especially if you are a conservative actively engaged in the effort to take back our country via investigative and opinion blogging, researching issues, promoting good candidates, hosting internet radio programs and otherwise putting yourself out there in a very public way, you must familiarize yourself with this very evil man, whose crimes are aided and abetted by various lefty nonprofit organizations like the Tides Foundation. So for this Friday, I am participating in a blogburst to show solidarity for targeted conservative bloggers.
I first heard about Kimberlin via one of his innocent targets, The Other McCain, whose excellent blog is a daily read. Because of this psycho Kimberlin’s threats to McCain and his family, he has been forced to uproot his wife and children and move them to an undisclosed location. Please check out The Kimberlin Files to read McCain’s detailed and chilling chronicle of events.
And he’s not the only one. You can read the harrowing accounts of conservative blogger Aaron Worther and his wife who have been relentlessly stalked and harassed by this convicted terrorist who also filed false charges against Worther. Both he and his wife have lost their jobs and piled up thousands of dollars in legal debt defending themselves.
The Lonely Conservative, Lee Stranahan, Patterico and Michelle Malkin also have detailed information about the menace to society known as Brett Kimberlin, of whom Andrew Breitbart sounded the alarm prior to his death.
Patterico’s post includes the pdf version of the original story written in the early 80s for the Indianapolis Star by reporter Joe Gelarden in which he discusses Kimberlin’s alleged murderous schemes to escape prison and exact revenge on his “enemies”. Visit his site for the full account.
Then check out Stacy McCain’s piece to fully understand why we should not only care but also demand why groups like the George Soros funded Tides Foundation continue to fund a convicted terrorist:
This was important, and Andrew Breitbart understood why it was important: The “TwitterGate” episode in October 2010 exposed Democrat operative Neal Rauhauser’s role in an apparent conspiracy to harass Tea Party activists online. Shortly thereafter, Mandy Nagy (aka “Liberty Chick”) documented Brett Kimberlin heinous criminal history.
Kimberlin and his “Velvet Revolution” partner Brad Friedman teamed up to urge Maryland authorities to prosecute James O’Keefe and Hannah Giles. At some point, according to Kimberlin, he became an “associate” of Rauhauser.
Now, investigative journalist Matthew Vadum has shown that major “progressive” tax-exempt foundations contributed tens of thousands of dollars to Kimberlin’s “Justice Through Music Project” and “Velvet Revolution” non-profits.
Money is fungible, as they say. The funding of Kimberlin’s projects — tens of thousands of dollars from the George Soros-connected Tides Foundation, as well as foundations associated with Barbra Streisand and Sen. John Kerry’s wife — thus supported all of Kimberlin’s activities, including his effort to have O’Keefe and Giles prosecuted for their ACORN takedown.
The association between Kimberlin, Friedman and Rauhauser inspires an obvious suspicion: Who is footing the bill for various online projects targeting leading conservative New Media activists?
Read Aaron Worthing’s account of being the target of Kimberlin’s attempted legal intimidation. Worthing’s offense? Apparently, being a former co-blogger with Patterico, who has written extensively about Kimberlin’s criminal record. Patterico has also been a target of Kimberlin.
Evidently, anyone who tells the truth about Brett Kimberlin is subject to this familar pattern of harassment and attempted intimidation.
Lee Stranahan created this succinct video which tells the story of this unhinged lefty:
It is incomprehensible that this dangerous piece of garbage is walking around free to menace, intimidate and plot unspeakable harm against those he deems his enemies — conservatives with whom he has a political disagreement. But for deranged leftists like Kimberlin, this goes far beyond politics — it’s war. And cowering in fear is not an option; we must stand in strong solidarity, fight back and expose this evil bastard and all of his moneyed enablers.
This is yet another stunning exhibit of left-wing depravity that makes me scratch my head as to why good, decent people still align themselves with the Democrat Party. So it’s up to us in the new media (now matter how small or large our blog followings) to do the job the legacy media won’t do — and that is, tell the truth. My thoughts and prayers are with all of the bloggers who’ve been at the receiving end of Kimberlin’s sick, twisted machinations. I hope that by participating in today’s blogburst conservative bloggers everywhere can at least lift their spirits by showing them they are not alone or forgotten.
UPDATE: Check out Trevor Loudon’s New Zeal blog excellent round-up which includes this:
Loudon has a comprehensive list of links to intrepid bloggers covering the story. If you have a blog, please consider posting about this; if not, share these links on Facebook, Twitter and other social media sites. It’s imperative the We The People stand up to tyranny and challenge the lamestream media to actually do their jobs. As my Congressman Allen West is so fond of saying, “Molon Labe!”
