I’m honestly not sure if I can say it any better than these individuals and teams have throughout the day today, so I will let you read it for yourself. But if you thought that Bill Ayers’ association with bigwigs on the Left (including President Obama) was a big deal, think again–Brett Kimberlin is at least as horrifying and unrepentant, and he deserves to have some light shone on his record again after what he did to conservative blogger Patterico last year.
He’s the pioneer of what is called “SWATting,” where someone fakes a phone call of a murder on-scene as a way to scare those of opposing beliefs into submission. Yeah, seriously–this guy framed another man of conservative politics by assuming his identity and telling 911 operators that he killed his wife, which caused him to get a 1 a.m. wakeup call at his doorstep from police, fire, SWAT, and HazMat.

Tweet it. Spread it around on Facebook. Email it to all your co-workers and piss them off because they hate getting your emails. Write letters to the editor of your local paper–and to the national ones because they refrain from talking about the big issues. And don’t let this die on the vine like the hundreds of stories we get outraged each and every day (which I am very guilty of as well). Keep up with new developments. Research for yourself. Try to find the connections between Kimberlin and the Left. Do whatever you must to get the truth out into the public sphere at large. As the “Kony 2012” loons said of their target, let’s “make Kimberlin famous.”
Kimberlin was the last topic Andrew Breitbart ever spoke about in an interview before he died. We must carry the torch further by stopping Kimberlin and the disgusting tactics of the bigwig Left for good.
