The Brett Kimberlin Saga:

Follow this link to my BLOCKBUSTER STORY of how Brett Kimberlin, a convicted terrorist and perjurer, attempted to frame me for a crime, and then got me arrested for blogging when I exposed that misconduct to the world. That sounds like an incredible claim, but I provide primary documents and video evidence proving that he did this. And if you are moved by this story to provide a little help to myself and other victims of Mr. Kimberlin’s intimidation, such as Robert Stacy McCain, you can donate at the PayPal buttons on the right. And I thank everyone who has done so, and will do so.

The Blogger’s Defense Team Auction/Raffle Has Been Extended Until Friday

I told you nearly a week ago about the Blogger’s Defense Team’s (BDT’s) auction and raffle of three original prints by Chris Muir.  To remind you, it is entitled “Last Supper (America) Red v. Blue” and this is what it looks like:

Last Supper by Chris Muir

Only with a bonus: signatures!  Many of the Titans of Blogging (though certainly not all of them), have signed it.  From the BDT website:

Each 11" x 19" print has been signed by the following giants of the Blogosphere: Michelle Malkin, Glenn and Helen Reynolds (Instapundit and Dr.Helen), Bill Whittle (Afterburner), Jeff Goldstein (Protein Wisdom), Ed Morrissey (Hot Air), Robert Stacy McCain (The Other McCain), and Mandy Nagy (Liberty Chick). The Blogger's Defense Team and Aaron Walker wishes to thank Muir and each of these bloggers for this donation.

Well, due to popular demand, the auction has been extended to Friday.  So if you haven't donated yet, you still have time!

I will reiterate again how thankful I am to Muir and all of these kind people who literally created value out of canvas, all because they think my fight is important to preserving the right of free expression.  One common theme in my life is that Freedom of Expression is not simply about avoiding government suppression, but all things that might prevent a person from freely expressing yourself.  It is good when we don’t have laws preventing a person from speaking freely, but how free will our debate be if people fear private violence, being framed for a crime, being fired from their jobs (when those jobs are not in the media themselves), and being subject to frivolous suits and restraining orders if you dare cross the wrong people.

The question really being asked right now is how we are going to settle our debates.  A friend of mine once said, in paraphrase, “Brett Kimberlin is about to learn that what he has done is a very good idea, or a very bad one.”  Well, more than that everyone else is about to learn whether his tactics are a good idea or a very bad one.  If Kimberlin gets away with it, you can expect this tactic to be emulated, both on the left and the right.  Our politics will descend into a very ugly place, where our debates are not settled by facts, or logic, but by who can play the nastiest.  The goal of the Blogger’s Defense Team is to show Kimberlin and every person tempted to follow in his footsteps that these kinds of vile and even criminal tactics are a very, very bad idea.

In this way, this legal defense fund is very much like Thurgood Marshall’s NAACP “Ink Fund.”  Of course they differ in specific causes—Marshall arrayed this legal defense fund to fight racial segregation, while Backer’s Blogger’s Defense Team is organized to vindicate Freedom of Expression—but in both cases we are seeking justice in the truest sense of the word, in a cause that will benefit provide benefits not only the immediate plaintiffs, but to large portions of the American people.  So I ask respectfully that you consider donating in order to protect freedom of expression, here.

Or maybe you just want a really cool print with some nice signatures on it.

Just hopefully it won’t go to their heads...

(Always be happy warriors, people.)
My wife and I have lost our jobs due to the harassment of convicted terrorist Brett Kimberlin, including an attempt to get us killed and to frame me for a crime carrying a sentence of up to ten years.  I know that claim sounds fantastic, but if you read starting here, you will see absolute proof of these claims using documentary and video evidence.  If you would like to help in the fight to hold Mr. Kimberlin accountable, please hit the Blogger’s Defense Team button on the right.  And thank you.
Follow me at Twitter @aaronworthing, mostly for snark and site updates.  And you can purchase my book (or borrow it for free if you have Amazon Prime), Archangel: A Novel of Alternate, Recent History here.  And you can read a little more about my novel, here.
I have accused some people, particularly Brett Kimberlin, of reprehensible conduct.  In some cases, the conduct is even criminal.  In all cases, the only justice I want is through the appropriate legal process—such as the criminal justice system.  I do not want to see vigilante violence against any person or any threat of such violence.  This kind of conduct is not only morally wrong, but it is counter-productive.
In the particular case of Brett Kimberlin, I do not want you to even contact him.  Do not call him.  Do not write him a letter.  Do not write him an email.  Do not text-message him.  Do not engage in any kind of directed communication.  I say this in part because under Maryland law, that can quickly become harassment and I don’t want that to happen to him.
And for that matter, don’t go on his property.  Don’t sneak around and try to photograph him.  Frankly try not to even be within his field of vision.  Your behavior could quickly cross the line into harassment in that way too (not to mention trespass and other concerns).
And do not contact his organizations, either.  And most of all, leave his family alone.
The only exception to all that is that if you are reporting on this, there is of course nothing wrong with contacting him for things like his official response to any stories you might report.  And even then if he tells you to stop contacting him, obey that request.  That this is a key element in making out a harassment claim under Maryland law—that a person asks you to stop and you refuse.
And let me say something else.  In my heart of hearts, I don’t believe that any person supporting me has done any of the above.  But if any of you have, stop it, and if you haven’t don’t start.
