May the twenty-fifth

There are a number of things to note about this day. Some are significant; some aren’t.

As much as I enjoyed reading Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy and watching the TV series, the fact that it’s Towel Day isn’t that important to me.

Likewise, the fact that it was 35 years ago that Star Wars was released is interesting, but not important.

What is important is the Brett Kimberlin blogburst.

Who is Brett Kimberlin? He’s a con man and convicted domestic terrorist who’s currently being funded by various individuals and foundations on the left side of the political divide.

What’s he doing? He’s trying to suppress anyone telling the truth about him or his connections. He’s using lawfare, perjury, and threats to harass anyone involved in such efforts. For the most part, such people are conservative bloggers, but there are some liberals who’ve gotten on his bad side, also.

Stacy McCain has taken his family into hiding because of what happened after he started reporting on Kimberlin.

Kimberlin tried to frame Aaron Walker for a felony, and both Aaron and his wife lost their jobs because their bosses and coworkers felt threatened.

Patrick Frey, who blogs under the name “Patterico,” has a very detailed, chilling tale to tell that starts with how someone impersonated him in order to get a SWAT team sent to his house thinking that he was a dangerous killer.

Brett Kimberlin is a scary individual who associates with scary individuals. They’re trying to chill discourse, and I don’t want to be someone who stands by and lets them get away with it without notice.
