The Brett Kimberlin Free Association Game


As I keep saying, last June a gang of Breitbart goons came into my Twitter timeline trying to push an absurd story about Brett Kimberlin into a story I was telling about Jason Wade Taylor, a con artist who had attempted to upend the StopRush movement by pretending to be a rich progressive philanthropist. Lee […]

Aaron Walker’s Downfall

Blogging lunatic and Islamophobe Aaron Walker and his friend W.J.J. Hoge saw their criminal complaints against Bill Schmalfeldt get nixed by a Maryland judge yesterday. Lee Stranahan loses right along with them. I have made the following Downfall parody video to celebrate. A brief explanation of some ephemera is included below: As I keep saying, […]

The Walker Jihad And The Stranahan Clan


Aaron Walker is not a very good lawyer. In fact, he’s a pretty terrible one. His lawsuit against Brett Kimberlin was ordered out of federal court months ago. Dan Backer, the high-powered DC attorney behind the Bloggers Defense Fund which organized against Kimberlin in the Summer of 2012, no longer responds to queries about Walker’s […]

Stranahan Gang Denied A Peace Order Against Bill Schmalfeldt


Bill Schmalfeldt tweeted this a little while ago. A hearing took place today and W.J.J. Hoge of Westminster Maryland was denied a peace order against Bill due to lack of evidence, just as was predicted. Reports indicate Howard County, MD prosecutors are issuing a statewide “burn notice” for the Stranahan gang. According to eyewitnesses, one prosecutor […]

How Breitbart’s Last War Began


Chris Faraone has written a blockbuster piece for The Phoenix this week about the world of right wing new media. Telling the larger story of Brett Kimberlin mania through the experiences of Nadia Naffe, former assistant to James O’Keefe, Faraone can only describe the surface of Planet Breitbart in ten thousand words. But there is plenty to […]

How Lee Stranahan Beat Brett Kimberlin At His Own Game


Bill Schmalfeldt aka @LiberalGrouch was served with legal documents last Saturday morning. His wife was at the store, so Bill was alone with his Parkinsons disease when the officers knocked on his door. He had to answer in his pajamas and explain to yet another policeman that he was not wobbly from drink, but because of the terminal […]

Dear Howard County, Maryland Law Enforcement

It is my understanding that Lee Stranahan of Dallas, Texas has made a false report against Bill Schmalfeldt in your jurisdiction (case #1286925). Stranahan has indicated that he intends to expand his accusations to me. I would like to aid your investigation by recounting Stranahan’s career of false reporting and clarifying his history of fabrication. […]

East Blogistan Has Always Been At War With Kimberlinia


As the blogger responsible for “Everybody Blog About Brett Kimberlin Day,” Lee Stranahan has been a central figure in one of the weirdest nontroversies ever concocted by East Blogistan. If you haven’t heard this one, it supposes that an obscure liberal activist is somehow responsible for everything everyone has ever said on the internet […]

The Streisand Effect: Synopsis of a Twitter Drama


The Streisand Effect (WikiPedia) is “the phenomenon whereby an attempt to hide or remove a piece of information has the unintended consequence of publicizing the information more widely, usually facilitated by the Internet.” Rather than seek forgiveness, Imani Gandy and her webmaster Heather Chase have tried to cover up their relatively minor offense by blowing […]
