Standing with Stacy McCain

“In the 11 years” that she’s been blogging, Terresa Monroe-Hamilton has had “numerous death threats. But they are nothing compared to what Stacey McCain at The Other McCain is going through.”  Stacy reports that

Convicted terrorist Brett Kimberlin on Monday continued his effort to silence those who write about his criminal past by contacting my wife’s employer, claiming that I was “harassing” him. The resulting security concern required immediate relocation if I was to be able to continue writing about the case of Kimberlin, a violent felon, perjurer and admitted tax cheat who is employed as the director of a 501(c)3 non-profit that has collected $1.8 million in contributions since 2005.

Kimberlin was convicted of multiple federal felonies in 1981 and sentenced to 50 years in prison after he terrorized a small Indiana town in a brutal crime weeklong bombing spree.

Like Ed Morrissey, I too have disagreed with Stacy from time to time, but count the blogger “as a friend” and agree that “no one should have to leave their home in fear simply for engaging in political debate.”  And Stacy is not the only right-of-center blogger targeted by Kimberline for, as Michelle Malkin put it, daring “to mention his criminal past or assist[ing] others who did.”   This is, she adds

. . . 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 [Walker (who blogged as “Aaron Worthing”) @ Patterico] and [blogger] Patterico [himself] 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 Walkerswho are the victims, not the perpetrators.

A highly notable issue,” reports Bruce Kesler at Maggie’s Farm

. . . aside from that the legacy media has failed to take up the matter, is that the funding for this campaign comes from some of the most-darling of liberal-left foundations (see this list, and some more background on Kimberlin’s trail of BS), using the Tides Foundation as their beard. The Tides Foundation acts as a secret conduit to leftist causes for donors, that include George Soros and Teresa Hines-Kerry as well as numerous other liberal foundations but also benefits from grants from the US government. See here.

Also wondering why the “mainstream media continue to ignore this Cape Fear-like story“, Little Miss Attilla sums up the story:

Convicted domestic terrorist and compulsive liar Brett Kimberlin has been attacking those who expose his past—using “lawfare,” veiled threats of violence, and the targeting of people’s livelihoods. His most prominent victims in the past few years have been Aaron Worthing and his family, Patterico and his family, and Robert Stacy McCain—and his family. Yes: the men’s families have been targeted for their temerity in speaking up. This is evil.

Indeed.  Why is it that instead of challenging conservative arguments, all too many (but fortunately not all) liberals resort to personal attacks and threats of violence?  They seem to seek to destroy us personally rather than to contend with us rhetorically.  They personalize political disputes.  And when they do, too few of their ideological confreres fault them for such attitudes.

I stand with Stacy.  Although he and I disagree on such issues as state recognition of same-sex unions, he has always shown me respect in our exchanges via e-mail — and in person when I met him when he was here in 2010.  Like Ed, I plan on hitting Stacy’s tip jar — and encourage you to join me.

  4. This one is really bad: a convicted terrorist bomber and perjurer who now spends his days of incarceration commiting further acts of terrorism by threatening, tormenting and torturing innocent citizens and their friends and families by his abuse of the civil and criminal justice systems with funds donated to his 501c(3) by a host of leftist non-profit organizations including the Tides Foundation (George Soros), the Heinz Foundation (Teresa Heinz-Kerry), and the Barbara Streisand Foundation (Marxist chanteuse).
    Bravo! to both Bruce and Dan for taking a stand, along with an increasing array of noble and courageous bloggers, to once and for all put the lid on this vile and detestable (blankety-blank).

  11. Jman #4: I think Kimberlin has been out of prison a few years. But yeah, you got the gist. One of his victims is a liberal blogger but yeah, it seems odd that a majority of Kimberlin’s victims are conservatives, and that he has the backing of top leftist foundations. I have a theory that the Left is the natural home of the real bullies. When conditions demand it, they bully using the law as a shield. That’s what redistributive taxation is, after all. Dan Savage bullies from a position of being supposedly against bullying. Bill Ayers gave up bombs, and instead, elected a President by having his fellow lefties make bullying accusations of “Raaaaysist!” And so on.

  13. the Left is the natural home of the real bullies

    ILC, I hear you. Liberalism, as we knew it, is dead and has been replaced by thugs who are in it the for power and for morphing our representative democracy into a control state where current leftist orthodoxy reigns supreme.

    When you listen to what the left “fears” about the right, it is always a reflection of what they intend to do. They fear the homophobes who need to be controlled by their government. They fear the gun owners who need to have their guns confiscated. They fear the religious right which needs to have its orthodoxy stomped out. And so forth.

    Meanwhile, the right reacts by creating the TEA Party to reinvigorate the fundamentals of representative democracy and the left sees the KKK and rednecks and guns and toothless wonders getting ready to rumble.

    There is one moderately conservative news outlet that does not play by the MSM script and the left goes ballistic and calls it FAUX News. Meanwhile, the MSM forms cabals to keep the script uniform and to move the leftist agenda. They brook no dissent.

    Dictatorships are like that. The power is exerted from gentle warnings to a horse head in your bed. Ask Rahm Emmanuel. Ask John Podesta. Ask the Clinton War Room. Ask Harry Reid. All of the foregoing have familiarity with the rules of lawmaking and governing and all of them specialize in exploiting the loopholes and ignoring the tacit mandates. Ask Ruth Bader Ginzburg who could not recommend the Constitution she is sworn to uphold as one of the nine giants which oversees it. She told the Egyptians to skip over it and look at the new age fluff that South Africa uses. Think about it, a Jew telling the Egyptian Brotherhood to paper over Shari’a with empty platitudes. That is the left. All wink and nod and no principles.

    The left readily uses any means to an end. They have predicted race riots this summer and they have certainly help gather the tinder to get them started.

    This Kimberlin guy is a very useful idiot. Somebody has to cut the horses head off and deliver it. Nobody, of course, actually orders it. It just happens on time on the spur of the moment.

    What was ACORN actually doing? What goes on at the Center for Progress? How about the Tides Foundation? Who was first up to circumvent Mc-Cain Feingold? What is the quid pro quo between Trumka and the stimulus payouts? Who got washed out of the Chrysler and GM bailouts, the unions or the stockholders? And on and on and on.

    Machine politics and thuggery are vested in accumulating and exerting power. The bigger the government, the more power it has to make its way into every nook and cranny of your life. That is the left. They are not liberal.

  14. And I forgot to mention that Cas, Levi, Serenity, etc. come here to argue for more “redistribution” coming their way in exchange for nothing more than their allegiance to those doing the heist. That is the saddest part of the death of liberalism. It created a nearly permanent underclass of saprophytes that is content to leech and carp.

    SHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! Be very quiet. Don’t wake ‘em up. :)

    Hey, ILC! I didn’t know that the vermin was sprung from the hoosegow.
    This little creep should never have been let out!

    My quick rule of thumb: whatever a leftist lectures, hectors, cajoles, annoys, torments and tortures others about re: their behavior is virtually always a behavior that they engage in consistently.

    Well, what else do you call a convicted bomber who has filed false criminal complaints against those who speak the truth about them, contacted their employers, and driven them from their homes? Sounds like he is trying to instill terror to me, via both…
