Why Does the Left Continually Support Violent Psychos Like Brett Kimberlin?


In case you haven’t seen the latest, below is a bit from Patterico’s blog regarding convicted felon turned Democrat Left Wing Activist Brett Kimberlin:

What you have just read is a summary. I have lived this daily — literally daily — for almost a year. There are pieces of evidence I didn’t have room to include. There is so much evidence of harassment it would take you weeks to read about it.

What’s more, I know that this post is going to result in more harassment. I will almost certainly be sued, despite my careful efforts to stick to the facts. There will likely be more complaints to my workplace.

And I have a feeling they’ll find creative new ways to try to rip my life apart.

As an aside, I have listened to Brett Kimberlin in court audio, saying he meets with Congressmen on a regular basis. I want to make sure these Congressmen know what he’s doing.

I have appreciated the support I have felt in recent days, with people like Michelle Malkin, Instapundit, Stacy McCain, Ace, and many others stepping up and being willing to take on this topic.

It is my hope that the support of the blogosphere will not melt away after today. Because the harassment will almost certainly live on.

It’s an important battle to take on. And I want to stress that this should not be a partisan issue. I believe Brett Kimberlin uses lefty politics as a tool — but he doesn’t believe any of it in his heart. He is looking for a buck. I have been heartened to see left-leaning people of all stripes stand up to this guy in the past, from Mark Singer, the author of Citizen K; to Ken Ashford, who refused to give up Aaron Walker’s identity; to the left-leaning lawyer who represented Aaron pro bono.

It is my hope that left-leaning blogs will recognize that this is not a partisan issue. It is a free speech issue.

Remember how I said one of my commenters was outed? And this crew started talking about his parents? And his divorce records? For being a commenter of mine?

What happened to me could literally happen to anyone. It could happen to you.

If you take nothing else from this post, remember that. It could happen to you.

Stacy McCain also has a lengthy description of this Democrat psycho Kimberlin:

Kimberlin’s infamous criminal past could scarcely have been a secret to those who funded his organization. Kimberlin became a national political celebrity during the 1988 presidential campaign because of his claim, made while he was still serving time in federal prison, that he had once sold marijuana to Dan Quayle, who was then the Republican candidate for vice president.

Kimberlin offered no proof for that unsubstantiated allegation, but it drew the attention of award-winning journalist Mark Singer. A reporter for the New Yorker, Singer was initially sympathetic to Kimberlin, and the two men split an advance for a book deal to tell Kimberlin’s story. Singer ended the co-authorship deal after he became disillusioned by Kimberlin’s habitual dishonesty. In 1996, Singer published Citizen K: The Deeply Weird American Journey of Brett Kimberlin, which exposed Kimberlin as a “world-class liar” and “first-class con man.”

In fact, according to both Singer and Indianapolis Star reporter Joseph Gelarden, prosecutors suspected a particularly sinister motive for the Speedway Bomber’s terroristic rampage: To distract law enforcement officials who were investigating the July 29, 1978, murder of Julia Scyphers, the grandmother of a pre-teen girl toward whom, Gelarden wrote in 1981, Kimberlin had “strange affection . . . questionable relationship.”

It’s bad enough the Left still support domestic terrorists like Bill Ayers but now they have another one (Kimberlin) to add to their list who is continuing his terrorism only without actual bombs.  The Left has the Black Caucus (actual elected Democrats) visiting that slime Castro in Cuba as if he was so great, they have Left Wingers supporting murderous, cowardly, vile scum Che Guevara all of the time and a lot of groups and Left Wing individuals like Barbara Streisand and John Kerry’s wife supporting organizations that are run by a convicted (CONVICTED, SERVED TIME IN PRISON) domestic TERRORIST, Brett Kimberlin.  There are many more like these examples that the Left supports but I haven’t got all day.  Why do the Left – Many Democrats, Liberals and Progressives – support these violent, psychotic and twisted people?  To a ‘normal thinking’ person there is no justification for supporting these types of people – EVER – whether you are on the Left, the Right or somewhere in between.  The only logical solution I can possibly come up with is that Liberalism is a mental disorder.


Good luck to Patterico, Mandy, Stacy and everyone else.  The great thing is – they STILL haven’t shut you up and they never will.
