Brett Kimberlin Awareness Day

25 May

As I’m sure you’re all aware by now, there has been a disturbance in the dextrosphere.  Patterico lays out the whole disgusting mess in his post today.  I don’t even know where to pull a quote from, it’s THAT packed with infuriating bullshit harrassment.  It’s worth reading the entire thing anyway.  But rehashing Patterico and Robert Stacy McCain’s travails isn’t the point of today.  It’s to remind you of who Brett Kimberlin is and what he has done.

Already having been convicted of impersonating a federal agent, in 1981 he was convicted of setting off a series of bombs in 1978 in Speedway, Indiana, one of which blew off the leg of a man named Carl DeLong.  After ten years of excruciating pain due to his injuries, Carl DeLong committed suicide.  Convicted bomber Brett Kimberlin was successfully sued by DeLong’s widow, and after serving 13 years of a 50-year sentence, was sent back to prison for four years because he refused to pay the judgment.

Think about that.  This guy traded four years of his own freedom to deny his victim’s widow restitution.

And yet, there is no Wikipedia entry about him or the Speedway Bombings.  A man was convicted of setting off a series of six bombs in an American city, and you can find no direct reference to either him or the event itself.

He and his devotees have accomplished this through a campaign of legal harrassment, threats and intimidation.

So far.

Sunlight is the best disinfectant, so here’s a cup of Pine-Sol in your eye, Brett Kimberlin.  They say history is written by the victors.  That ain’t you, convict.

    It occurs to me that, if these thugs were to torment and harass the wrong person, someone unstable or violent, and their intended victim actually did retaliate (as opposed to Aaron Worthing’s fake retaliation) they would have a hard time seeking redress, because they have cried wolf so many times that no one would take their claims seriously.

    This Kimberlin guy sounds like someone Obama might want ghost writing a book for him.

    Well said. Please keep up the good work. Your trenchant style is the perfect antidote in these end times.

    Jeff: There is a Brett Kimberlin Wikipedia page –

    There’s also been a pretty good flow of edits to the piece.
