Dishonest Bill Schmalfeldt Got Banned from Daily Kos for Anal Rape ‘Satire’

Posted on | February 20, 2013 | 36 Comments

Bill Schmalfeldt of Elk Ridge, Maryland, a.k.a. “Liberal Grouch”

It’s noon, boys and girls, which means that deranged cyberstalker Bill Schmalfeldt is now podcasting his fathomless rage against Lee Stranahan and other eeeee-vil people who, just coincidentally, happen to be on Brett Kimberlin’s enemies list. Schmalfeldt’s compulsive lying has been previously examined here, but on his podcast yesterday, the sociopathic sadist had the effrontery to accuse me of “dishonestly” cropping his photo to make him look scary.

Oh, cruel irony: That picture of Bill came from the same online file of images in which Schmalfeldt included obscene Photoshopped smears of his various enemies who, as I say, are so coincidentally coterminous with the Kimberlin enemies list. Not going to share those here, but you could ask Ali Akbar what Schmalfeldt “dishonestly” does to photos. Or just look at what Bill did to a Sarah Palin photo:

Schmalfeldt created that Photoshop of Palin bleeding with a stake through her forehead to illustrate a post he wrote under his “Bill Matthews” alias at the Examiner, a deceit he perpetrated after his harassment of fellow Examiner contributors got Schmalfeldt axed as the “Liberal in Baltimore” columnist at the Examiner. He returned as “Bill Matthews” of Wisconsin (despite being a Maryland resident not named Matthews) and kept up that charade until getting banned permanently from the Examiner in August.

Photoshopped images of Republicans spattered in blood is a favorite theme with Schmalfeldt, as shown by an image of Allen West he created to illustrate a May post at Daily Kos.

So much for the Schmalfeldt “image integrity” lecture, eh? My apologies for using “Schmalfeldt” and “integrity” in the same sentence.

Schmalfeldt is forever burning bridges behind him as he careens from disaster to disaster caused by his antisocial personality. He never accepts responsibility for his failures, always externalizing blame onto his scapegoated enemies. The classic example of this was when Schmalfeldt, clumsily attempting to smear “homophobic” conservatives, published a May 18 Daily Kos diary about anal sex.

Go ahead and click that link. Double-dog dare ya.

To say that Schmalfeldt’s graphic discussion of what he called “the Butt Stuff” was obscene and offensive is to understate the matter. Perhaps the most adequate description is “Too Disgusting for Daily Kos,” which is really saying something.

Schmalfeldt’s gross discourse about sodomy drew outraged comments from DKos readers, including “Cinnamon,” who remarked that it seemed “to have been written by a 14 year old, using one hand.” Schmalfeldt then added an unintentionally hilarious disclaimer:

UPDATE: To clarify for Cinnamon’s sake, this is not an indictment of all heterosexual men. I happen to BE a heterosexual man. A heterosexual teacher coerced me into becoming straight when I was just eight years old. I was permanently scarred by the experience of being told of the pleasures of heterosexuality. She never touched me or anything like that, but it was clear that SHE was a heterosexual and I admired her, so I decided then and there, this would be the lifestyle I chose. No, this is an indictment of STUPID heterosexual men who are either self-loathing closeted gays or believe that every gay man in the world wants to f–k him. I thought this was self-apparent throughout this satirical diary, but Cinnamon begs to differ and has slapped this diary with an HR to show her disapproval. Now that we are clear on the actual INTENT of the diarist, who uses satire to make his point (and not everyone “gets” satire, so apparently it has to be explained before it can be read), we begin.

In other words, if graphic discussion of “the Butt Stuff” offends you, it’s because “not everyone ‘gets’ satire.” Two days later, as progressives at DKos continued to pillory Schmalfeldt, he then offered a new Daily Kos contribution:

Please Stop Reading My Diaries. Thanks.
This diary, short and sweet, is really dedicated to the six people who found no humor whatsoever, thank you, in the piece I wrote yesterday about how it’s the “butt stuff” that male homophobes find so scary about “teh gey”.
It is not an apology.
It’s a suggestion.
Stop reading my stuff.

Evidently, this did not placate his critics and that day — May 20 — was Bill Schmalfeldt’s last as a DKos contributor.

This, then, is the character of the remorseless monster who will spend two hours today on his podcast attacking Lee Stranahan and others on the Kimberlin enemies list. 

Schmalfeldt does his twisted “show” five days a week to augment his blog and Twitter harassment of Stranahan. Did I mention that in July, Schmalfeldt created a “Dead Andrew” site to mock the late Andrew Breitbart and disparage Breitbart’s conservative colleagues?

There is nothing so low as to be beneath Schmalfeldt’s despicable hatefulness, including the most disgusting sexual references imaginable to Lee Stranahan’s wife and children.

You stay classy, Bill Schmalfeldt!

    ““dishonestly” cropping his photo to make him look scary.”

    Ya know, there ain’t enough puppies and kittens in the world to cover him in to make him NOT look scary.

  • Quartermaster

    The poor boy can’t even spell “ghey” properly. A pathetic little beast who has to turn to attention whoring to get some kind of recognition of his “talents.” If it weren’t for the stalking and harrassment, we’d all shake or heads and walk away wondering why we had the misfortune of seeing his misfortune.

    Perhaps it’s just The Lord God Almighty’s way of making someone a horrible warning.

  • Mike G.

    Couldn’t you put some kind of cover over his picture with a link and a warning. Every time I see that ugly mug, I throw up in my mouth a little bit.

  • CitizenEgg

    Well it’s likely that BS (such apt initials too, lol) would enjoy a good cropping, as long as it was by his leash handler BK.

  • JohnInMA

    It’s fascinating to learn the DKos audience has limits to being offended even if you are targeting their view of crazy, evil people. However, it’s bizarre to find out it is simply being offensive to the gay audience. That suggests protecting the sensitivity (imagined) of gay people is more important than blasting any random crazy, evil conservative. Most gay people I know are much more tough and tolerant, but I guess not the DKos audience.

  • gunga

    Having seen the unedited photo, all I can say is THANK YOU! for cropping it.

  • Dustyn Hughes

    Actually, I read this thing once a long time ago, the ones who took offense were the former rape victims.

    The story is so graphic and basically shows a rape, which is where it went off the rails for the DKos kids

  • Rob Crawford

    Puppies and kittens would just make his picture look scarier. You’d keep wondering what his plans for them were…

  • Phineas T. Barnum

    Bill Schmalfeldt must not have read my book where I wrote, “Politeness and civility are the best capital ever invested in business.”

  • Popehat

    The incompetent “satire” and unbalanced hatred are certainly revealing. But of all the links in this post, I think the link to Crazy Bil’s petulant, whiny haters-don’t-get-my-brilliance post on Kos is the most revealing of, for want of a better word, his “character.” What a disturbed individual.

    And what a hypocrite. He’s been feigning outrage that someone on Twitter made a seeming death threat against him. Assuming it wasn’t him, or an ally, doing it for sympathy, the death threat is unacceptable and contemptible and should be reported to law enforcement. But as he’s using it to attack enemies and cull support from the defectives who are his allies and generally pearl-clutch, he’s left up a post in which he posts my office address and then fantasizes, creepily and quasi-sexually, about me being murdered because I provide pro bono legal assistance to someone he doesn’t like. What a sick freak.

  • PCachu

    If ol’ BS ever needs another interweb handle, he should go with Mike G’s suggestion back in the February 14th column’s comments. He could rename his podcast to match. “It’s time for Bad Touch with Chester the Molester.” Catchy!

  • RichFader

    There may very well be a photo of Bill somewhere out there where he doesn’t look like a prison lifer telling the new guy to prepare his anus. That one, even uncropped, is probably not it.

  • richard mcenroe

    They just don’t like having their own hobbies mocked.

  • MrPaulRevere

    On the Kos dairy entry from 5-18-12, Schmalfeldt links to a post from “My friends at Little Green Footballs”. Heh!

  • Adjoran

    Is there any metric for the number of listens/downloads on a podcast? It seems to me the market to listen to some crazy jerk ranting incessantly for two hours a day is somewhat limited.

  • Finrod Felagund

    I’m pretty sure if you look in the dictionary under ‘troll’, it has that picture.

  • Evi L. Bloggerlady

    Who said it was satire?

  • Charles Johnson

    If you wonder what a genetic pairing of me and Shamutta would result in, you just need to look at the Schmalfeldt photograph above.

  • MustangSally

    Bill Schmalfeldt is dishonest about a lot of things. Just like the convenient “death threats” that keep popping up all of a sudden. Thats part of the NR modus operandi. “Lets take the attention off of ME and point it back at them”.

  • Evi L. Bloggerlady

    I am pretty sure in the dictionary after “narcissistic asshole” it has that picture.

    Don’t you have a campaign to run?”

  • rmnixondeceased

    Perhaps it’s “narcissistic asshole troll”?

  • Kyle Kiernan

    Whatever else you might say, he certainly has a good vocie for audio. Shame its wasted on that huge steamer.

  • AnonymousDrivel

    “…A heterosexual teacher coerced me into becoming straight when I was just eight years old…”

    Seriously? At eight? And he had to be coerced into becoming straight?

    I must be missing something. That boy just ain’t right… in all sorts of ways.

  • RichFader

    Okay, I saw what the top of Bill’s head looked like. Dude looks like he got in a fight. Really, Stacy did him a favor.

  • Bob Belvedere

    No…that picture is of Obama.

  • Bob Belvedere

    It was, as BS describes, a pic taken three days post-op. Hmmm…brain surgery, perhaps.

    Anal Rape is what happens when the Truly Bad person gets sent to prison along with the Other Wannabes that think by sucking-up to the right wing regime shall make them wealthy.
