Conservative blogging titan Michelle Malkin has the story.
Over the past year, Aaron Walker (who blogged as “Aaron Worthing”), Patterico, Liberty Chick, and now Stacy McCain have been targeted by convicted Speedway bomber Brett Kimberlin because they dared to mention his criminal past or assisted others who did. The late Andrew Breitbart warned about Kimberlin and company.
I have spoken directly with both Patterico and Aaron about their ongoing battles.
The mainstream press, not just the conservative blogosphere, needs to hear and report their stories.
This is a convoluted, ongoing nightmare that combines abuse of the court system, workplace intimidation, serial invasions of privacy, perjury, and harassment of family members. McCain was forced to move with his family out of his house this week, and has just gotten a small taste of what Aaron and Patterico have been enduring over the past year. Aaron and his wife were fired from their jobs after their employer feared the office would be targeted next. Convicted bomber Kimberlin has filed bogus “peace orders” against Aaron, when it is the Walkers who are the victims, not the perpetrators.
And Patterico’s plight will send chills up your spine when he is ready to tell it.
Institutional inertia, incompetence, and apathy among law enforcement officials on both coasts have exacerbated the victims’ suffering. It has moved far beyond a partisan or political story to a bottomless, Kafka-esque morass. And, via investigative journalist Matthew Vadum, it certainly doesn’t help that “progressive,” left-wing foundations that have funded Kimberlin continue to look the other way.
I am often asked by people why I have an alias. Well, this is why. I think that the typical rank and file Democrat is a lot more supportive of domestic terrorism, intimidation and coercion than most people think. Even if they don’t support terrorism and coercion, they will keep silent about it. An important part of the secular leftist mindset is that everyone must agree, and that there can be no diversity of opinion or dissent. Diversity confuses them – it makes the angry.
John Hawkins of Right Wing News has a great interview with Robert Stacy McCain about his ordeal.
FrontPage magazine has a lot more details on Brett Kimberlin.
