Yoo Hoo! Look Over Here! No, Look Over Here! No…..

Customarily, I like to bring the snark, as everyone knows. But not today. Today is for answering the question “Who is Brett Kimberlin?”

He is, ladies and gentlemen, the Speedway Bomber. Here’s a little history:

The Speedway Bombings (Speedway, Indiana) began in trash cans on September 1, 1978, just before 10:00 p.m. Three bombs in total were detonated the first night. Bombs were exploded on subsequent nights, with a police cruiser blown up on night number five. While there was significant property damage incurred at those explosions, it was not until the sixth night that it turned deadly. This time the bomb would explode after the Speedway High School football game, maiming Carl DeLong so severely that he later committed suicide from his injuries. While that would prove to be the last of the Speedway bombings, residents still lived in fear for months afterward.

This quick summary of the horrific events of 1978 in Speedway Indiana are significant because today, in 2012, the man convicted of those bombings, who served only 17 years of a 50-year sentence, is setting about a systemic campaign to silence his conservative “critics” (i.e., those who reference his career criminal record) through harassment via litigation and other means. That man, the aforementioned Brett Kimberlin’s, current incarnation is as the director of a non-profit venture, the “Justice Through Music Project,” which has collected $1.8 million tax-free samolias in the past six years from such entities as Fidelity Capital, the Tides Foundation and Barbra Streisand’s foundation. A look at the JTMP site reveals that it isn’t so much about music as it is about social activism of the progressive type. And they have tax-exempt status WHY? (It amazes me that 1%-ers love funding enterprises whose sole mission in life is to hasten their monetary destruction.)

So, it is in solidarity with his targets, notably bloggers and pundits — R.S. McCain, Patterico, Liberty Chick and Aaron Worthing — that Barbarian at the Gates, in conjunction with The Blogmocracy and Diary of Daedalus, is hosting, with permission, the following excellent video by Lee Stranahan, chronicling the career of Brett Kimberlin.

Stranahan, incidentally, was the driving force behind “Blog About Brett Kimberlin Day.”

You can also read about Kimberlin’s exploits and systematic harassment of right wing bloggers and pundits by following the excellent links at The Bookworm Room here: http://www.bookwormroom.com/2012/05/23/friday-is-everybody-blog-about-brett-kimberlin-day/

As has been widely quoted on Twitter today – this is the most important post you can read today:

http://www.patterico.com/2012/05/25/convicted-bomber-brett-kimberlin-neal-rauhauser-ron-brynaert-and-their-campaign-of-political-terrorism

The importance of “Blogging about Brett Kimberlin Day” is to let him know that he can’t sue, threaten or harass all of us and that we stand united with our fellows in the conservative blogging community. Bringing up his criminal past is neither harassment nor a smear. And the truth is an absolute affirmative defense to any charge of so-called slander. It makes one wonder if Kimberlin’s real fear is that when his reputation as a convicted home-grown splodeydope gets around, Fidelity Capital won’t be whipping out the checkbook for him anytime soon.

And I would also like to make a call out to our conservative talk show hosts – Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Glenn Beck, Mark Levin, Michael Savage, Andrew Wilcow and others – why have you given no time on your shows to these issues? This story needs national attention, and so far the heavy lifting is being done by the conservative blogs such as Stacy McCain, Allergic2Bull, et al., and Twitter users, who have risked account suspension to discuss it from Kimberlin’s associates and allies. It’s time for you to take up the “laboring oar.”

Update: Kudos to Glenn Beck for mentioning this story on his radio show this morning.

A site has been set up to assist all bloggers being targeted by Kimberlin and his co-horts. You can donate here: https://rally.org/bloggers

    It appear the best way to flush this scum bag Brett Kimberlin out of the woodwork is to keep a light on him… 24 hours a day. That’s what’s nice about the internet, it doesn’t sleep and there is ALWAYS someone online to read something.

    Brett… how do you like the attention?

  2. mchblazer says:

    Nice friends ya’ got there Chunk !

  3. Awesome, awesome, AWESOME post Arachne!!! I’d hug you through the internet if I could!! Definitely gotta tweet the shit outta this one!

    Thank you very much and thank you Rodan/Daedalus and m for cross-posting for me. I see on Twitter that there are now plans afoot to find out if there are Congressional Democrats who have met with this felon.

    fatass is probably pacing the floors of his “gated community”, asking un mata hari for fruit & water as he plots a way to spin the Kimberlin story and his ties to his enablers. But, never fear, the man he hopes to impress the most has weighed in, so I bet he’ll be the same way:

      Fuck you Charles Johnson.

      You have slimed and convicted people you have known for years for simply expressing opinions that could be bizarrely construed to associate them with others who have done less than Kimberlin/Rauhauser et al are doing right now.

      Yet you have the temerity say that. After your DM fest with Rauhauser and subsequent employment of his tactics which include the outing of Rodan and the tweeting of his identity by CL directed to the attention of Islamists (an act that reveals your old bigotry still lurks under your political cosmetic surgery). You are capable of a sociopathic level or rationalization, compartmentalization and excuse making. Your double standards employed booth before “you changed” and afterward demonstrate a careless disregard for what most would call “common decency.”

      Keep running that memory hole. I am starting to think that it exists for your own need to dismiss your constantly unfolding, creepy past rather than any effort to hide it from others.

  20. You know something? Patterico’s article mentions a connection to the Raw Story? Guess who is a writer at the Raw Story?

    @Angryblacklady. Guess who Xcitizen10 was talking to just before he was banned? @Angryblacklady.

    This is one of the weirdest, creepiest stories I’ve ever seen on the ‘net. It’s only too vunderbar, that Chunky McMoobs is up to his nether-tits in it. Yes…he now has gotten so fat, he has tit-like fat-deposits on his back. There’s a picture of him at Wal-Mart floating around somewhere…

  25. snowcrash says:

    DoD is mentioned in the huge list of blogs covering Kimberlin on memeorandum.

    • Arachne says:

      And if you’re looking at Twitter at all – the Human Stain is having his ass kicked from all sides – hell there are people beating up on him I’ve never even seen before.

  26. Nice- the more exposure to the light of day this Kimberlin gets, the more anyone in their right mind will be asking what the fuck he’s doing out there a free man.

  27. Chuck's Orange Jumpsuit says:

    fatass trying to deny his guilt by association tactics regarding Kimberlin is hilarious. Also, unless I missed it, Malkin hasnt mentioned fatso, so his blasting at her is just to get attention

    Well done, Arachne! Well done!

  29. livefreeor die says:

    Oh, and congratulations to you, Charles.
    You have closer ties to Rauhauser and Kimberlin than we all do to Serbian Genocide and the Turner Diaries.
    You love the guilt-by-association game and now you get to play it BIG TIME!
    Karma, baby!

    Charles will now throw as many shiny objects into the air as possible.
    I wonder how his new buddies feel about him viewing being associated with them as a “smear”?

    so his “deny & distract” plan is what he’ll do to avoid Kimberlin? This should end well.

  32. livefreeor die says:

    How fitting that Chuck hits a new low of beclownment on the anniversary of Weinergate.

    Checking in from vacation. I saw this story. That explains why Kimberin/Breitbart Unmasked makes threats referring to Jihadis.

    I’m not. I don’t know this person, and in fact, I don’t recall ever even hearing his name before this massive right wing freak out.

    I guess I should be flattered that these hateful morons think I’m so powerful and omniscient that I’m involved in every single one of their stupid conspiracy theories.

    Latest pile-on target? I wonder if Rauhauser sent a DM and told him to say that.

    • Emperor says:

      “I don’t know this person” – false. Charles Johnson follows @BreitbartUnmask and while I cannot prove it, I suspect he started following that account shortly after he initiated contacted with Neal Rauhauser.

      • rightymouse says:

        He’s lying for the benefit of his minions, some of whom may be freaked out by the association. He & Rauhauser are definitely connected & Rauhauser & Kimberlin are connected. Charles. You can try & wriggle out of this one all you want, but you can’t.

    • I didn’t think I was snarking you. Knowing chukinjivingan’s account personally I do believe that I was trying to point you in an informative direction. Oh well, the written word can infer so much more interpretation than the spoken.

      I truly was not out to ruffle your tail feathers or anything. Just pointing out that our fat clown buddy is being intentionally selective about who his associations are. I have no doubt in my mind that fatso’s first introductions after DMing Rauhauser were to Kimberlin’s accounts.

      He can deny it, but he can’t say it to distance himself. That creep might take the battle to the Benedict Arnold we all know and love. As a matter of fact, Chuck is shitting his depends right now because he knows that too. Chukin called him out for that and the “Silence is Deafening” from him or the reason he deleted Rauhauser.

      Honestly dude, I was just too lazy to pull chukin’s tweet and bring it over here. No offense.

    As to not knowing about Kimberlin, that’s thin gruel: Breitbart tweeted about him a bunch, and since fatass stalked AB’s twitter acct, he has to be stupid or lying to not have ever seen anything about Kimberlin.

    The Human Stain is continually smearing others based on the flimsiest of circumstances. You include someone in your tweet timeline that has posted a reference to The Turner Diaries and you are, by association, as much a white-racist-hater-homophobe as the other guy because apparently before you tweeted, you didn’t do seven hours worth of indepth research. In the meantime, you are DM’ing someone who is affiliated (and read the fucking blogs that have chronicled the man and his associates) with a domestic terrorist. And you have the double fucking audacity to call it a smear campaign against YOU? You’re the waterboy in this game, pal – you loved it when a big boy like Neal Rauhauser patted you on your fanny and invited you to the party.

    What I find more appalling is the reaction by your new best friends in the left wing blogosphere that snorted and minimized the very real campaign of intimidationj and harassment going on against people who merely stated the truth about a career felon. You’re safe in your scorn. Because as much as you whine and cry about “threats” you know perfectly well that you aren’t in any danger. And neither are KKKos and the degenerates at your blog. Because we’d never resort to such tactics against you. You know why? Because it’s illegal. Because it’s wrong.

    But those evil people using your own words against you. Those mean old stalker who have the audacity to say things about you on a public social site you can’t control. That are calling you out because you’ve communicated with an associate of a convicted domestic terrorist and are making you guilty by association.
