So, I have what, seven readers? Well, seven more people in the world will be informed. Who is this Brett Kimberlin person? Why blog about him? Did he survive a tragic accident or invent the cure for cancer? Um, no. He’s just a guy from Indiana. He did start a non-profit organization called Justice Through Music. That sounds good, doesn’t it? Rock the vote, and all that. He’s kind of getting picked on lately. I mean, dedicating May 25th as blog about Kimberlin day, that’s kind of mean-spirited, right? He’s just a po’ boy from my home state. Well, not exactly poor. His JTM organization and oh, I almost forgot, his other organization called “Velvet Revolution”, have pulled in a few bucks from some no name donors…Barbara Streisand, George Soros, Tides Foundation, Heinz Family Foundation, to the tune of 1.8 million greenbacks. Nice. But hey, I don’t begrudge people their millions, because I’m going to make millions someday and I don’t want anybody begrudging me my money.
So, why blog about Brett today? Well, it appears that he has a nasty habit of trying to take down people who talk smack about him. Smack like, he shot and killed a grandmother in cold blood because the grandmom was trying to discourage his relationship with her granddaughter, who was 10. He didn’t like anyone interfering with his designs, so he showed up at the house and shot grandma in the head. When things got hot for him as a suspect in the case, he tried to deflect police business away from him. He set bombs around Speedway, Indiana. One of them successfully took the leg and fingers off a guy coming out of a football game outside Speedway High School. The victim later committed suicide, unable to handle life as an amputee.
So, put Kimberlin’s butt in jail, right? Problem solved. Yeah, he served thirty years. Now he’s out, and he’s touting Social Justice and so on. Oh, and when people mention his colored past, he gets all up in their faces and starts making threats. Threats like, I don’t know, calling 911, claiming to be the DA, and ‘confessing’ to shooting his wife, then giving the DA’s address, to which a SWAT team surrounds, yanks the DA and wife out of bed, and puts the couple through hell, because…what??? Yeah. This particular assistant DA, Patrick Frey, had been blogging (under the name Patterico) and criticizing Kimberlin’s business partner. Kimberlin didn’t take too kindly to the scrutiny or the truth, for that matter. Frey’s secretaries at work started getting threatening phone calls. The SWAT team incident followed soon after.
Frey isn’t the only one who revealed the truth about what kind of guy Kimberlin is, and he’s not the only one who got threatened. Turns out, pretty much any big conservative blogger with an audience that criticizes Brett gets threatened, harassed, or perhaps worse. Now, I’m not going to speculate on the deaths that turned up after the harassments. Circumstantial stuff. (Think Breitbart and the heart attack?) Strangely, the coroner who did Breitbart’s autopsy died of arsenic poisoning just a few days after that, but I digress.
I think the whole point of “Blog about Brett Kimberlin Day” is to get the truth out there en force. People shouldn’t be afraid to tell the truth. Communist regimes, Socialist regimes,…those are environments that quell truth for fear of retaliation. So here I am, a lowly food and treadmill blogger, telling the truth about some thug that touts Social Justice. (Don’t even get me started on that RIDICULOUS phrase. It makes me throw up in my mouth).
The truth shall set you free. And walking regularly does too.
