Deranged Cyberstalker Bill Schmalfeldt: Bats, Belfry, Some Assembly Required

Bill Schmalfeldt ranting on YouTube

When last we left the strange saga of Bill Schmalfeldt, the self-described “brain-damaged troll,” his incessant barrage of Twitter gibberish had become so demonstrably crazy that there were fears for his safety. Apparently, however, the nice young men in white coats didn’t take Bill to the Funny Farm, or else the psychiatric staff at Spring Grove have granted him Internet access for therapeutic reasons, because he’s still ranting today. Now he’s got new reasons to rant — Ken White at Popehat has begun his dismantling of Schmalfeldt. A few excerpts:

Our special tonight is a disturbed self-styled journalist named Bill Schmalfeldt. . . .
He leaves no sense of what values he promotes, only of what groups and individuals he hates. There’s only one circumstance when you get a sense that he’s enjoying what he does, that he has a craft or a calling. That’s when he’s describing someone being raped, murdered, or otherwise abused, or when he’s pursuing the families of someone he hates. . . .
There are constant themes. The first is that, though he is nominally “progressive,” he delights in using homoerotic imagery and insults normally associated with homophobes to attack people he doesn’t like . . .
Second, despite being nominally “progressive,” he is perfectly willing to indulge in racism to revile people he doesn’t like. . . .
Third, he’s really, really into the rhetoric of violence and murder.  . . .
Fourth, Schmalfeldt enjoys attacking the family of his political targets.  . . .
Schmalfeldt . . . reported [ contributor Lee] Stranahan to the Dallas Police, the FBI, the District Attorney, the Center for Missing and Exploited Children, and Texas Family Protective Services . . .
Bill Schmalfeldt doesn’t have principles. Bill Schmalfeldt doesn’t have values. Bill Schmalfeldt doesn’t have beliefs. Bill Schmalfeldt has enemies, and then nothing, a black and dank and empty void of sullenness. . . .

Read the whole brilliantly brutal thing and remember: This is just the first installment of an expected series of digital vivisections.

Two weeks ago, when Bill Schmalfeldt threatened me with a spurious copyright claim, I replied with 5,000 words to explain something really simple: BILL SCHMALFELDT IS CRAZY. He keeps providing more evidence of his irrationality, because he can’t help himself. This will not end well for him. He will either go to jail or go to the nuthouse, or else he’ll suffer a fatal neurological and physical breakdown.

If anyone were sincerely interested in Bill Schmalfeldt’s well-being, they’d be begging him to stop, but nobody who actually knows Bill Schmalfeldt likes Bill Schmalfeldt. He evidently lacks any concern for whatever remains of his own human dignity. None of his enemies could ever hate him as much Bill Schmalfeldt hates himself.

    No, that seems to explain everything.
