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. I have only followed the story at a distance, and don’t hold myself out to be an expert on the subject. The result of their investigations has prompted a flurry of legal harassment in some cases, and worse in others.

And if the Left doesn’t get it, we will get around to shaming them into it, too.
Enough is enough – and Kimberlin is long past too much to tolerate, or turn away from in ignorance. It’s well beyond time we draw a line in the sand when it comes to Brett Kimberlin. And a large number of bloggers, whether each is seen as significant, or not, is precisely the way to do it.
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:
Please tweet this story out and castigate the mainstream media complex that is ignoring despicable criminal behavior by Kimberlin. Thank you.
