For conservatives online, it is also a time-tested truism that there is great strength in numbers. When bloggers, activists, video content creators, and Twitter users on the Right unite behind common principles — fighting jihadi propaganda, exposing corruption, calling out media bias, following the progressive money trail, holding the Republican Party’s feet to the fire, etc. — we can accomplish uncommon things.
Looks like that time has come around for some of our friends in the blogosphere. Aaron Walker, Patterico, Liberty Chick, and Stacy McCain have written extensively about a man named Brett Kimberlin and connections to violent political action.

Friday, Conservative bloggers must put aside petty and personal agendas to stand up united as one in the name of free speech, liberty and against over-the-line and unacceptable political attacks and tactics. And if the Left doesn’t get it, we will get around to shaming them into it, too.

I’m in. If you blog, Tweet, use Facebook, or social media of any type to support conservative and Republican politics, or just free speech, reasonable political argument and liberty, you need to be in on it, too. If you support those things, Brett Kimberlin stands against everything you believe in both in theory and practice. And it’s time for his twisted combination of scam and petty self-indulgent but genuine form of political terrorism to come to an end.
Brett Kimberlin is threatening bloggers that write about his criminal activities. Hence this blog post. For background on this totally ignored story please see the following links:
