This is how twisted America has become: a convicted terrorist is released from prison before serving his 50-year sentence for blowing people up, pays not a cent of the $1.2 million judgement against him awarded to the widow of a bombing victim, has a documented penchant for lying, yet manages to get a conservative blogger jailed for the crime of writing about his past and present activities.
Domestic terrorist Brett Kimberlin has, almost unbelievably, accomplished just that.
It’s worth noting that, due to threats from Kimberlin the felon, blogger Robert Stacy McCain moved his family from their home a couple of weeks ago, and is now blogging from an undisclosed location – likely connecting via wifi at a store or shop; so many places offer it free that it makes staying hidden much easier than it used to be.
In what may well prove to be a related incident, conservative writer Erick Erickson and his family were SWATted two nights ago:
Sunday night as my family and sister’s family were around the dinner table and playing outside, sheriff’s deputies pulled into my driveway responding to an accidental shooting at my home.
One deputy was in the driveway. Another blocked the end of the driveway with his car. A neighbor tells me another was up the hill from the house.
There was no shooting at my home. Someone called 911, claimed to be at my home, and claimed to witness a shooting at my home.
As the one deputy and I spoke, the other deputy walked up the driveway, positioned himself behind the car in the driveway, and kept his eyes on me and his hand on his gun.
This is a tactic increasingly used by the Left, and so it’s unclear whether Kimberlin was behind the false report, or whether it was attributable to one of his associates.
In 2011, after writing about Kimberlin, LA County Prosecutor Patrick Frey was rousted out of bed after midnight by the LA County SWAT Team. Someone had called 911 claiming to be Frey saying he’d just murdered his wife.
Freedom of speech? Forget about it. Filing a false report? Not a problem if you’re a Leftist. In America today, as convicted felon Brett Kimberlin has demonstrated, you can literally blow people up and emerge to become a darling of Leftist Democrats. Write about it, and you may be jailed.
