Busy Day on the Kook Beat

Posted on | October 9, 2013 | 95 Comments

When you specialize in writing about criminals, perverts, weirdos and kooks, sometimes it’s hard to keep them all sorted out. My Twitter timeline and e-mail inbox fill up with tips, from all over. Here’s the World’s Most Famous Sex Offender Kaitlyn Hunt talking about the nude photos and masturbation video she sent her underage victim:

Looking back on it, that contact is one mistake Hunt readily regrets, as she told WPTV. “Yeah I do regret it because I trusted her as not only my friend but my girlfriend, too. I felt I got set up in multiple ways and I got hurt by her,” Hunt said. She says she still cares about the younger teen, just not the same way. “I don’t love her the way I did before,” she said.

“I got set up in multiple ways” = “I got caught, because I’m stupid.”

“I don’t love her the way I did before” = “Now that I’m in jail, I can’t finger her in the school restroom toilet stall.”

Kaitlyn’s mother Kelley Hunt Smith . . . words fail:

Bill Schmalfeldt? Yeah, words fail there, too:

Meanwhile, I spent more than a half-hour on the phone today with an Indiana source, getting helpful additional background on the pro se plaintiff in Kimberlin v. Walker, et al.

Also, via others sources, I obtained some important documents I hope to post later. If these Team Kimberlin weirdos imagine that, by any lack of diligent preparation, I’m going to lose a defamation lawsuit to a convicted bomber and perjurer, they’re crazy.

But of course, they’re crazy anyway. Quod erat demonstrandum.

Speaking of self-evidently crazy people, Amanda Marcotte is angry at Twitter because . . . well, she’s just angry a lot, isn’t she?

    I could (if you don’t mind my keeping it to my off-hours) try to imitate a crrrraaaazed stalker. But, frankly, I don’t think I could do it very convincingly; I could simply be very eccentric, which would not actually require much effort on my part.

    Crazy thing is, if I wasn’t a Christian with a strong sense of morality coupled with a well honed degree of self control, I’d probably be slavering over our lesbian cheerleader looking for an opportunity to hookup and introduce her to some heterosexual delights – which is what I figure 99% of the #freakater’s are hoping for.

    These people are common, common-squared!, manifestations of ever escalating levels of vulgarity and ever more thorough denials of personal responsibility. They’re degenerates. It would be comical if oneyou did not harbor the suspicion that there is still room for a succeeding generation to be even worse.

    Yet I suspect a good number of freakaters are female with, perhaps, analogous homosexual fantasies, or who just empathise

    Even if St Kate really is a committed lesbian, (which I doubt) there is still that appeal — I can see it, but I’m a bit of a degenerate myself, IYKWIMAITYD…

    I’ve been due to go to Florida on a little street ministry. Perhaps a thorough neighborhood leafleting with a flyer outlining the salient facts about our favorite dildo wielding lesbian child predator cheerleader.

    It is humbling & humiliating when you list the charges and accusation from charging docs along with booking photos and hand deliver that flyer as a public service to the closest 500 neighbors of the Hunt’s.

    Anyone up for a trip to Florida?

    Maybe I could work up a flyer for little miss katie like we did for little toddy stave. He operates an abortion cartel and hired LeRoy Carhart to come kill late term babies in Maryland.

    Whatcha think:

    Not so fast, pal Bourgeois Tool of the Patriarchal Oppressive Establishment!

    Putting ONE woman on the Board is “tokenism” and an even greater sin than strict meritocracy. They must have EQUAL representation, which mean a majority of both the Board and the executives.

    You can say that Feministas like Marcotte never actual accomplish or create anything, but they dream big. And no guy better tell ’em they can’t, either, dammit!

    If you’d just write about the serious economic and foreign policy issues I do, you wouldn’t attract all of those criminals, perverts, weirdos and kooks.

    Of course, you’d probably get the same 133 visits a day that my site does. 🙁

    As for the sadder, but hopefully slightly wiser, Miss Hunt, the obvious question is: why did the authorities allow a televised interview from jail in the first place?

    Perhaps she could be said to be slightly wiser because she has managed to realize that sending that video wasn’t the smartest thing she could do — and when will it be available on the internet, we wonder? — but she still hasn’t gotten wise enough to realize that it’s time to just STFU, do her time, get out and keep quiet.

    She said that she wants to be a nurse some day. My wife is an RN, and I can tell you one thing: RNs have to be very careful about what they say and do, because they are licensed professionals.

    That may well be the case. I’ve taken to flagging libtards right and left just for them being there. It seems anything flagged gets deleted automatically, and I’ve had a lot of stuff deleted for no reason, so it that may well be the case. Even if don’t flag libtards for the fun that’s in it, I always flag the ones I respond to, without exception.

    Definitely. Mine is expensive whiskey, a little ice and a nice glass.

    Also, I don’t eat the blue M&M’s
    (regardless of whether plain or peanut.)

    I purposely added that last one because the first one wasn’t crazy enough. Been sticking with it ever since the day they started selling them. Officially its: “Nobody has ever seen me eat the blue ones.”
