[Update- 5/25/12] This is the day we all stand up for Free Speech
Brett Kimberlin, who has been terrorizing bloggers for daring to report the facts, some to the point where Kimberlin abusing the court system to file over 100 lawsuits, others forced to leave their home for fear of their family's lives.
My update from yesterdays piece explains what conservative bloggers are doing on May 25, 2012, this Friday:
PAY ATTENTION MSM
[Major Update] May 25, 2012 - "Everybody Blog About Brett Kimberlin Day."
Michelle Malkin (thanks for link by the way) explains what this type of coordinated messaging used to be called:
For those of you who are old fogies in the blogosphere, you’ll remember the “blogburst” concept — hundreds of bloggers of all sizes getting together to push an idea or action item. In this case, a blogburst would raise the cost of the online terrorists’ speech-squelching business immensely. It’s a collective show of support and force.
This whole travesty has been largely ignored by many and major media outlets have not done their due diligence in reporting it so others, such as myself, were not even aware of this man nor his threats, abuses or harassment of our fellow bloggers, victims of his crimes or anyone he considered his "enemy."
That has now changed as awareness has been raised.
Malkin has a list of those reporting this.
FilmLadd has a list.
The Conservatory has a list.
Lee Stranahan, who has came up with the idea of the "Everybody Blog About Brett Kimberlin Day" has given open permission on his post to repost his piece:
Brett Kimberlin is a convicted bomber, perjurer and left-wing attack dog. He’s attacked — in no particular order — conservative bloggers like Andrew Breibart, Patterico, Liberty Chick, Aaron Worthing, Stacy McCain and others.(If you do not have a blog, tweet it, put it on Facebook, Stumble, Reddit, Digg, whatever. If you don't have any of those accounts, leave word in comment sections. Just please help spread the word.)
Here’s a short, easy to follow video I put together on Kimberlin:
This is no war of words; Kimberlin is a serial litigator who has filed over 100 lawsuits by his own account and he takes people to court, claiming they are harassing him. He calls their employers. I stand with all these people, some of whom are my friends. I’m launching a new effort on my own that I hope will help.
The only effective way I to fight Brett Kimberlin is for as many people to research and write about him as possible.
So I’m declaring this Friday, May 25th as Everybody Blog About Brett Kimberlin Day.
Here’s what you do to take part…
- Research Brett Kimberlin on your own. Don’t trust secondary sources; look for the orginal articles articles published about him, too.
- On Friday, May 25th — write an honest, factually accurate post about what you learned and what your OPINION is. Brett may try and sue you, so be accurate, factual and separate fact from opinion.
- The post doesn’t have to be long — ANYTHING helps.
- After you post, Tweet, share, whatever — get the post out there.This foolishness has gone on long enough.
This should not be a conservative issue, yet conservatives seem to be the only ones willing to step up to protect the rights of others to report facts. This should be an issue where liberals, conservatives, Democrats, Republicans, Independents, moderates.... everyone should be able to unite and fight for the right of free speech without being terrorized and harassed.
There are a lot of mea culpas coming from conservatives for their lack of attention, because they weren't aware of the travesty, but now that the story is out, they are stepping up to the plate.
Where is the media. ABC News, where are you? CBS News, where are you? NBC, Washington Post, New York Times, CNN, Fox..... where the hell are you guys?
A Google News Search for "Brett Kimberlin" is bringing up zip, nada, zilch from them. (As of 10AM AZ time)
Liberals- This isn't a political issue, we conservatives and you folks can battle out the economic issues, social issues, disagree forever, but in this, it is a right or wrong issue....... where are you?
Come on... meet us in the middle of the ring, join on May 25, 2012 and we can all go to our respective corners to battle politics right afterwards.
