Monsters on the Internet: Sociopathic Sadism and Bill Schmalfeldt’s Madness

Posted on | November 4, 2012 | 13 Comments

In the laundry room of the motel today, a fellow let me borrow his detergent to save me the $1 it would cost to buy detergent from the vending machine. We got talking. Turns out he’s a Butler County resident who has already voted early for Mitt Romney and who will take Tuesday off work to volunteer as a poll watcher. My new friend’s cheerful kindness was a pleasant contrast to the incessant bombardment of menacing messages sent out on Twitter by Bill Schmalfeldt, one of the minor characters who have lately jumped aboard Neal Rauhauser’s Crazy Troll Train (see, “E-MAIL TO LARRY SINCLAIR“).

Once you know their motives and methods, these monsters aren’t nearly so scary as they’d like to be, and the real horror of their behavior is the soul-chilling realization of what sick pleasure they derive from it. Healthy minds do not delight in plotting evil against others, and wholesome spirits do not endlessly threaten others with harm they intend to inflict.

Among all the depraved characteristics Neal Rauhauser has displayed, nothing so marks him as a warped personality as his sadistic glee in threatening people this way. And the fact that Schmalfeldt and Larry Sinclair are now assisting Rauhauser’s perverse project speaks volumes, not only about their own innate depravity, but also their weak-mindedness, in making themselves willing henchmen of such a notoriously dishonest person as Neal.

My readers who have sent me to Ohio to cover this crucial election may wonder why I’m bothering them with this, the latest weird installment in the strange and savage tale of “The Kimberlin Files.” It is because, once again, malignant agents of the Kimberlin-Rauhauser Axis are terrorizing the innocent, emboldened by the delusion that their lies can triumph over truth. More than five months ago, Ace of Spades compared this situation to the fate of Kitty Genovese, and aptly so:

Who wants to get involved? Easier, and surely safer, just to duck one’s head and hide, and hope the danger visits someone else.

Over and over, we’ve seen the pattern: The monsters target someone, and anyone who comes to the defense of the target becomes a target himself. But anyone who thinks I’ll be bullied or intimidated by these threats obviously doesn’t know me too well.

And when I see the atheist Bill Schmalfeldt (who is not linked here, for obvious reasons) quoting Bible verses at me like Max Cady in Cape Fear, I’m reminded of another Bible verse:

“And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie.”
II Thessalonians 2:11 (KJV)

Barrett Brown is in federal custody, y’know. I blame Neal Rauhauser. And starting Nov. 7, I’ll have plenty of leisure to write about monstrous fools who vainly imagine they can distract me for more than a few minutes from my continuing coverage of this historic presidential campaign.

    Stand strong my friend, continue rising above the garbage. Their jealousy is driving them mad.

    If Cabin Boy Bill Schmalfeldt wants to read Proverbs, he should take heed of the warning in 22:15:

    “Foolishness is bound up in the heart of a child;
    The rod of discipline will remove it far from him.”

    I suspect that the demented souls of this sad world take pleasure inflicting pain on others because they themselves live in torment.

    Keep up the good work, Stacy!

    Exactly. They are Nihilists who hate themselves and hate Life itself. They seek to drag everyone else down into their pit of self-inflicted misery.

    If it weren’t so pathetic, it’d be funny. Seriously, an atheist tweeting a believer Bible verses? What is that supposed to do?

    Your quote is good, but you needed to add the next verse to give it its full meaning: “12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.”

    I suspect that the liars won’t care, but those who DO cherish Truth know better. 🙂

    That there could be more than one is truly disgusting.

    I have been a target of his since early December of last year. He has also targeted several friends of mine that had the audacity to come to my defense. myself and a couple of others have been the subject of a nearly year long smear campaign of lies and harassment, private messages of intimidation and threats. Numerous “expose’s” of falsehoods. The man is certifiable. I have learned over the last few months that I am not the only one he has ever done this to, but am only one of many. His mantra seems to be “instead of actually investigating the truth, I will simply post whatever the hell I want and YOU prove me wrong”. What kind of “journalist” does that? he is no journalist, he is a cyber bully/stalker. God will judge him in the end.
