This special Memorial Day evening post comes courtesy of Wonkette Operative Doktor Zoom. That's right: Doktor Zoom has saved Memorial Day!


Just when you had finally figured out who the hell Saul Alinsky was, the right-wing blogosphere has found a brand new boogeyman to be terrified of: Brett Kimberlin, a convicted bomber, maybe murderer, and head of a liberal organization that no one's ever heard of, the Justice Through Music Project, which has received funding from the Tides Foundation (George Soros!) and Barbra Streisand (Yentl!).

Apparently, in addition to saving the world through music and lying about having sold pot to Dan Quayle, Kimberlin's other hobby is destroying Free Speech by suing, harassing, stalking, and maybe trying to kill right-wing bloggers, at least according to several right-wing bloggers, who decided that last Friday would be "Blog About Brett Kimberlin Day," so that the entire right-wing blogosphere could have a collective freakout about how the Left is threatening America yet again. As part of the festivities, Glenn Beck's Serious News Operation The Blaze contributed a sober, carefully sourced exposé titled MEET SOROS-FUNDED DOMESTIC TERRORIST BRETT KIMBERLIN WHOSE 'JOB' IS TERRORIZING BLOGGERS INTO SILENCE.

Let's just get to the sexy part where a blogger had his life endangered! Patrick Frey, a Los Angeles County Assistant D.A. who blogs as "Patterico," wrote some stuff about Kimberlin in 2010, and then Kimberlin started threatening to sue Frey, harrassing people in Frey's office, and posting Frey's address and Google satellite photos on websites. All nasty stuff, we agree! And Frey is pretty sure (on the basis of "circumstantial evidence") that Kimberlin was behind an act of "SWATting," which you will soon hear is something that liberals do all the time:

Essentially, a yet-to-be identified man (but one who sounds much like a Kimberlin associate, according to Frey) placed a call to law enforcement in the early morning hours of July 1, 2011, to announce that he had just shot his wife. The man then proceeded to give the operator Frey's home address. Of course, the call was intended to make it look like Frey had just confessed to murdering his wife at his home. Just after midnight, a SWAT team descended on Frey's doorstep, screaming at the top of their lungs for the attorney to place his hands behind his head. They arrested him and dragged him to the patrol car while simultaneously dragging his wife out of bed. “I could have been killed," Frey told The Blaze in an interview as he recalled the disturbing story. He explained that he was only “99% in shock" because a similar incident had happened to someone else just one week prior, and likely for similar reasons.

Leaving aside the question of what being "99% in shock" even IS (maybe a subtle dig at Occupy?), this is an awful thing for anyone to do, and whoever was responsible needs to face the appropriate consequences. Only for some reason, the police didn't seem to share Frey's certainty that Kimberlin was behind the incident, and eventually closed the investigation, possibly due to the overwhelming influence that George Soros and Barbra Streisand have on the LAPD.

We should probably expect to hear more about this "SWATting" stuff, which Erick Erickson described on May 25 as "a tactic used by left-wing activists and others these days." And then just two days later, Mr. Erickson revealed that he was himself the target of an attempted SWATting:

Someone called 911 from my address claiming there had been an accidental shooting. It wasn't nearly the trauma that Patterico suffered, but I guess the Erickson household is on somebody's radar.
Luckily it was two sheriffs deputies who knew me and I had already, last week, advised the Sheriff's Department to be on the look out for something like this.

Happily for all, since they were sheriff's deputies and not Census Takers, Erickson didn't take his wife's shotgun along with him to the door.

Will "SWATting" and "Brett Kimberlin" become right-wing memes to equal "ACORN," "The Cloward-Piven Strategy," and "Barack Obama Eats Puppies"? Hard to say. At least one right-blogger is ready to start shooting liberal vermin over it, which simply means that his internet connection is still working.

On Saturday, Glenn Greenwald saw a story in the New York Times about how the US is mucking around in Russia's power grid in a show of power:

In interviews over the past three months, [current and former US] officials described the previously unreported deployment of American computer code inside Russia's grid and other targets as a classified companion to more publicly discussed action directed at Moscow's disinformation and hacking units around the 2018 midterm elections.

So Glenn Greenwald, being a total Glenn Greenwald, used that moment to defend his president, Donald J. Trump, because OMG it is just crazy that the liberals and the Deep State and the Rachel Maddow think Trump is some kind of puppet of Vladimir Putin, just because he constantly acts like a puppet of Vladimir Putin.

HAW HAW, LIBS OWNED! Isn't Donald Trump always saying nobody's tougher on Russia than he is? Glenn Greenwald agrees that nobody is tougher on Russia than Donald Trump, because Donald Trump says so.

As Aaron Rupar from Vox points out, this tweet from Donald Trump arrived just about eight hours later ...
