#brettkimberlin: Will We Allow The Far Left To Kill The First Amendment?

LEFT TO RIGHT:  Barbra Streisand, Teresa Heinz Kerry, Brad Friedman, Neal Rauhauser, George Soros

Are you like me?  I had never heard of Brett Coleman Kimberlin until a few days ago.  Now, unless you spend every moment under a rock, you know that the infamous Speedway Bomber is part of a nexus of evil involving some heavyweights—George Soros of the Tides Foundation, ketchup heiress Teresa Heinz Kerry, fading star Barbra Streisand, libtard blogger Brad Friedman, Democrat activist Neal Rauhauser and Fidelity Investments.

Here’s the backdrop:

Mark Tapscott at The Washington Examiner writes, “The First Amendment is under intense attack from many points on the ideological compass, but mostly from the far Left.”

“The enemies of free speech and thought have lately turned to more subtle tools of suppression than merely shouting down speakers. Among these are extortionary threats to launch false charges of racism against companies that support politically incorrect groups, such as the American Legislative Exchange Council.”

“But far more sinister is the tactic adopted by Brett Kimberlin, an activist and the founder of the group Velvet Revolution who was convicted in 1981 of exploding eight bombs in 1978 in Speedway, Ind. One of his bombs blew off the leg of a man who subsequently committed suicide.”

“Nowadays, Kimberlin targets conservative bloggers like Aaron Worthing and Robert Stacy McCain in Maryland, and Patrick Frey of Patterico's Pontifications in California. Why? For publishing facts about Kimberlin's criminal record.”

“Kimberlin harasses his targets by, among many other ways, filing false charges in courts that require expensive, time-consuming litigation, disrupting his targets' workplaces, and dropping dark hints about spouses and kids.”

Read the rest of his piece here.

The less than 5’6” Kimberlin, so hungry for attention, finds himself in the searing, white-hot spotlight of scrutiny.

An Army of Davids has mounted up with wings like eagles and declared today, May 25, 2012, Everybody Blog About Brett Kimberlin Day. The National Bloggers Club has set up a website to aid Kimberlin’s victims.  Michelle Malkin has called attention to the mainstream media’s remarkable unwillingness to report on this terrifying story of swatting, intimidation and death threats.

For more background on these bizarre attacks on conservative bloggers, go read Matthew Vadum’s post at Front Page.

John Hawkins of Right Wing News interviewed one of Kimberlin’s targets, Robert Stacy McCain.  RSM has some interesting thoughts on Kimberlin’s future.
