When ‘Shutuppery’ Fails

Twitchy jumped on the story about Greg Flynn’s attempt to intimidate North Carolina blogger Lady Liberty, featuring Sister Toldjah’s story of how she was targeted by North Carolina Democrat activist Jeanne Bond and her “front group” Moving NC Forward.

When the Left’s attempts to silence dissent are exposed, the thugs who fail in their efforts inevitably claim victimhood: They are being “harassed.” They are being targeted by “death threats.”

They have done nothing wrong, they believe, because they are liberals and anything they do is acceptable, because . . . shut up!

Noted douche nozzle @GregFlynn wants
Conservative blogger to “shut up”

— Daley Gator

Being described as a “noted douche nozzle” is just one immediate consequence of failed “shutuppery.” Secondary consequences include:

Democrats like Greg Flynn, Jeanne Bonds and John Burns evidently believe that no one should be permitted to criticize them. So when they try to “dox” bloggers and get caught, the people who expose them are then alleged to be engaged in wrongdoing: “How dare you describe my attempt to intimidate you into silence?”

This is exactly why Brett Kimberlin named me among five defendants in his lawsuit for “malicious prosecution, conspiracy to abuse process, defamation, false light invasion of privacy, harassment, intentional infliction of emotional distress, and stalking.” 

My wrongdoing, according to Kimberlin, is to have described his attempted intimidation of Aaron Walker and others.

“If Brett Kimberlin hates you, he will do anything within his power to harm you — even though he derives no benefit from these destructive acts other than the sadistic vengeful pleasure of inflicting harm. Now that Kimberlin is engaged in legal warfare against his wife who left him, we can observe conclusive proof that (a) Kimberlin’s attacks on enemies like Aaron Walker were never really about politics, and (b) the “Accuse the Accusers” method is Kimberlin’s characteristic strategy.
“In an effort to discredit his estranged wife Tetyana, Brett Kimberlin had her taken into custody July 6, seeking to have her involuntarily committed for psychiatric evaluation. This vindictive strategy failed — Tetyana was immediately released by Montgomery County District Court Judge Patricia Mitchell — but Kimberlin has continued this destructive smear against her. In a hearing Tuesday before Maryland District Court Judge Barry Hamilton, Kimberlin claimed that Tetyana is mentally ill, off her medications for bipolar disorder.”

Robert Stacy McCain, July 18, “Brett Kimberlin’s Enemies List Expands to Include His Estranged Wife: ‘She’s Nuts!’”

That July 18 post is actually quoted in Kimberlin’s lawsuit as evidence that I have defamed and harassed him when, in fact, I have merely described his depraved character, habits and behavior.

Readers may have noticed that this post is datelined “Rockville, Maryland.” I have come here to begin preparing my legal defense against Brett Kimberlin’s baseless accusations, and one must wonder if Brett Kimberlin has contemplated the consequences — primary, secondary and tertiary — that may ensue when “shutuppery” fails.
