In the several posts I’ve written about con artist and convicted domestic terrorist Brett Kimberlin, with respect to Aaron Walker, formerly known online as Aaron Worthing (link is to Walker’s latest harassment), and Stacy, I’ve noted that the Montgomery County Maryland State’s Attorney, John McCarthy, has failed to do his job, and joins therefore a long line of dedicated civil servants how permit this left-fed criminal to blithely harass and disrupt the lives and livelihoods of many people who have stoked his ire by telling the truth about him. Now it turns out that the lawfaring douche has contacted Stacy’s wife’s employers to threaten and browbeat them over having the temerity to employ a woman married to a man who has written about Kimberlin in unflattering terms.
Among his supporters, chronicled in Stacy’s posts, are the Tides Foundation and other leftist institutions backed by George Soros, among others, but also probable dupes such as Fidelity Investments and Barbra Streisand, who likely thought the name of sociopath Kimberlin’s 501(c)(3), the Justice Through Music Project, looked like a nice place to placate the ‘social justice’ brigades.
Remember, though: PACs are evil. Liberals say so.
If you have money invested with Fidelity, make sure to change that, and to let them know why. And if any leftist tries to accuse you of bullying, please make them eat this story. And don’t forget to contact the Maryland State Prosecutor’s office, but, as Aaron requested, do try to be polite.
Equally as guilty of negligence or cowardice, in my view, are right-leaning media outlets that have decided, for whatever reason, not to treat this story as important. Kudos to those who have. Last night on Twitter, a couple of right-bloggers found themselves blocked from using the service by virtue of the usual complaints from the usual suspects. Twitter rectified the situation after a few hours, but as Iowahawk noted, those who have made a practice of abusing the ‘reporting’ feature ought to be kicked off entirely and permanently. Twitter users banded together to force a prompt response from the service, but the tens of thousands of tweets that were devoted to expressing unhappiness over a couple of bloggers (in this particular instance) being inconvenienced for a few hours has found faint echo in this much more abusive attempt to impose censorship through threats.
If you’re on Twitter, please ask anyone who has so far maintained their silence to write about it, especially if they have large audiences. You can help build momentum as well by using the hashtag #freestacymccain. And if you have some Photo-chops, you might think about working up a t-shirt design that says “FREE STACY MCCAIN” then image, then “(Must be 18 or older. Some restrictions may apply.) so that he can use it as a fund-raiser.
Only, y’know . . . better.
I don’t want anybody trying to shame people into publicizing this story, at least yet. It’s reasonable, though, to believe that those whom you support and help to boost might take at least a passing interest in helping to get this awful story the publicity that it so richly deserves. Asses like Brett Kimberlin survive and thrive because people find it to inconvenient to help put an end to their behavior, and that is why they persist in it.
Enough. This dude needs to be stopped, and in a manner that will make his fellow travelers take notice. It is leniency that has created this monster, and it is severity only that will stop it. Kimberlin’s encroachment affects us all, whether we like it or not, and anybody who can’t be bothered to do the right thing and finish this moral idiot no longer deserves to be heard when they speak of censorship. We do the professionals a favor every time we quote them or link to them, and it’s about time they learned to return the favor.
Lee Stranahan declares this Friday, May 25, Everyone Blog About Brett Kimberlin Day. Lee has produced a fantastic video, the first in a series about Kimberlin’s background. Please view it and repost it.
Donald Douglas, again, at Theo Spark. Thanks for the link!
Zilla of the Resistance has done a superb job rounding up material from hither and yon, including a couple of bloggers I’ve missed.
Michelle Malkin: Well, there’s another big name, isn’t it? I’ve never seen Michelle turn away from a fight on an important, principled issue, so I was certain she’d come through, and she has.
I just don’t have the time to keep up with all the defenders of truth, justice and the American way of life here, so as you come across people I’ve missed, please link their posts up in comments.
