Bill Schmalfeldt: Somewhere, a carnival is missing its sideshow freak

“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.”
Robert Stacy McCain, Feb. 20

“The State of Maryland has answered you, Mr. Schmalfeldt. It has told you: No, John Hoge does not have to answer your questions or read your statements, however you choose to deliver them. Not in tweets, nor in any other way. Maryland has answered your questions, sir. It has gathered up your statements. The authority you like to claim — in imperatives to others — has now been turned on you.”
Becca Lower, “Bill Schmalfeldt, You Must”

Life is not fair. Some people have necks and some people don’t and — rather than seeking gainful employment as a carnival sideshow attraction — The Amazing Neckless Troll Man seems to be under the impression that his problems are our fault. He is wrong, as usual.

Saturday, while I was busy working on a 2,000-word article about Edward Snowden for ViralRead, Bill Schmalfeldt showed up in the comments of two Friday posts — “Peace Order Against Bill Schmalfeldt: A Defeat for the ‘Troll Rights’ Movement” and “Hoge’s Victory Lap” — in an apparent effort to win in the court of public opinion what he could not win in the Circuit Court of Carroll County, Maryland: The right to use the Internet to harass people he hates.

If all of Schmalfeldt’s comments have not yet been deleted, they will be, and I offer apologies to all our commenters who now, because of the disappearance of Schmalfeldt’s comments, may appear to have been arguing with someone who is not actually there. And, let’s face it: Bill Schmalfeldt hasn’t been “all there” in a long, long time.

Attempting to convince a madman that he is out of his mind is a hopeless task, and it’s best not to encourage Schmalfeldt in the delusion that he has anything to say that any sane person is obligated to notice, much less bothering to refute the kook. Nevertheless, here’s part of the “argument” Schmalfeldt made in one of his comments:

It’s actually quite humorous, the responses I’ve gotten. And quite revealing about your nature and your temperament. . . . You’ve been told I’m crazed and evil, therefore I am crazed and evil and that’s the end of the discussion. I deserve to be defamed and mocked with dishonestly cropped pictures.

“Dishonestly cropped pictures.” The loss of self-awareness indicated by that complaint speaks diagnostic volumes about the nature of Schmalfeldt’s derangement. Perhaps it is unnecessary to remind readers of what Bill Schmalfeldt once did with a photo of Sarah Palin:

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. We need not rehearse here all the hateful acts of self-destructive madness Bill Schmalfeldt has engaged in during his sad descent into gibbering lunacy. It will perhaps be sufficient for anyone new to this psychiatric case-study to know that Schmalfeldt was banned from Daily Kos because of his writings about anal sex.

Go read it for yourself. I double-dog dare you.

Having lost the privilege of posting his demented ravings at Daily Kos, and having been similarly banished from contributing to the Examiner because of his habitual dishonesty, now this monstrous pervert wants to hijack the comments at this blog to claim victimhood.

Well, no. And there’s this: “Stalkers have no right to directly address you after they have been warned to cease and desist.”

All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing about trolls like Bill Schmalfeldt.

The myth of “troll rights” is a persistent and dangerous delusion. You can write what you will on your own blog, Mr. Schmalfeldt, but the fact that no decent, honest or intelligent person cares to read your blog is not my problem. Likewise, the fact that the only use you seem to find for your Twitter account is to harass people you hate — not my problem.

Schmalfeldt’s problem can be described in two words: Bill Schmalfeldt.

Good luck fixing that problem, sir. It seems to be beyond repair.

    There ain’t much that is tight on this clown – especially his screw.

    They’d be a great one-stop link-to when you’re trying to explain to someone just how nuts this cretin is.
