Online Armageddon (Conservative Blogosphere vs. Brett Kimberlin; Friday June 7, 2012)
American Spectator ^ | June 7, 2012 | Robert Stacy McCain

Online Armageddon

"An Army of Davids" unites against a campaign of intimidation.

Somewhere between the time in October 2010 he threatened to sue Patrick Frey and the decision last week to make a similar threat toward Ali Akbar, Brett Kimberlin crossed a Rubicon of desperation and burned the bridge behind him. In the past three weeks, Kimberlin and his allies have escalated their deceitful war against conservative bloggers to the point that it cannot be ignored, and must now be fought to a conclusion with the entire political world watching.

A convicted perjurer and drug smuggler, Kimberlin became infamous as the "Speedway Bomber" who terrorized an Indiana town in 1978. Kimberlin somehow managed to secure a well-funded role in the progressive movement after being released from federal prison in 2001. Ten days ago, when I covered Kimberlin's bizarre activities in an American Spectator column ("Terror by Any Other Name"), the director of the 501(c)3 non-profit Justice Through Music Project was just beginning to gain renewed attention. On May 25, a broad spectrum of conservative online activists joined together for "Everybody Blog About Brett Kimberlin Day" to call attention to Kimberlin's harassment and intimidation of bloggers who wrote about his criminal history.

During his 17 years in federal custody, Kimberlin became a skillful "jailhouse lawyer," filing more than 100 legal proceedings on his own behalf and, over the past two years, he has deployed those methods in a series of lawsuits and criminal accusations against his chosen targets. Another non-profit Kimberlin co-founded, Velvet Revolution, made headlines by offering rewards for evidence of wrongdoing by public figures including GOP strategist Karl Rove and U.S. Chamber of Commerce president Tom Donohue.

A graphic lesson in what happens when deeds in darkness are exposed to the light of day.

Brett Kimberland, your beyond correction, condemned of yourself, the judgment comes.

Actually, it could well be that ‘Kimberland’ is where Kimberlin lives, some moldy depraved corner of his mind...

SWAT-ting is an established liberal technique. It was used to launch the Lawrence vs. Texas case on its road to the Supreme Court. Lawrence was always a put-up job, an incident being created in order to obtain a prosecution that Lambda Legal and others could then litigate to the Supreme Court and the waiting Associate Justices Souter and Kennedy.
