Bill Schmalfeldt: Obsessed Much?

You stay classy, Bill Schmalfeldt!

“Schmalfeldt . . . is closest to his sweaty-palmed Happy Place when he is describing degradation of others.”
Ken White, Aug. 6

Deranged cyberstalker Bill Schmalfeldt has many persistent traits, including habitual dishonesty and a tendency to mimic the rhetoric of his enemies. This latter trait is related to Schmalfeldt’s symptomatic psychological projection — accusing others of committing wrongs of which he is himself spectacularly guilty — but Schmalfeldt’s “monkey see, monkey do” imitations are also a confirmation of the moral and intellectual emptiness Ken White of Popehat has observed:

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.

Without values or principles, Bill Schmalfeldt is intellectually adrift, blown to and fro by his own gale-force hatreds. So whenever any of his chosen enemies — Aaron Walker, Lee Stranahan, whoever — describes Schmalfeldt’s behavior, it is only a matter of time before Schmalfeldt begins to parrot his enemy’s rhetoric, falsely accusing them in the same terms they have used to accurately describe him.

One can see this clearly in Schmalfeldt’s engagement with John Hoge. We know why Schmalfeldt became obsessed with Hoge, who aided Lee Stranahan when he flew from Texas to Maryland to file harassment charges. (See Stranahan’s account, “Bill Schmalfeldt: The Stranger Who Harassed My Family.”) Hoge was then targeted for similar harassment. He warned Schmalfeldt to cease contacting him and, when Schmalfeldt persisted, petitioned for and was eventually granted a peace order against Schmalfeldt. Hoge’s only interest in Schmalfeldt is to stop his harassment. Because harassment is Bill Schmalfeldt’s raison d’être, however, this illegal behavior persists. Hoge therefore continues (a) describing Schmalfeldt’s harassment, (b) seeking legal action to stop the harassment, and (c) enjoying the hilarious reactions of other spectators watching the carnival of Sideshow Bill’s craziness.

In “monkey-see, monkey-do” fashion, however, Schmalfeldt now routinely claims that Hoge is “obsessed” with him, and that he — the creepy kook Bill Schmalfeldt — is actually the victim of “harassment.”

Amid this twisted knot of psychological projection and rhetorical mimicry, however, the real Bill Schmalfeldt is always present. And one of the most disturbing aspects of his personality is his frequent resort to language about feces, anal sodomy and coprophagy. (See my Sept. 30 post, “Bill Schmalfeldt: Sadism, Sodomy and Other Bizarre Mental Aberrations.”) He clearly has an abnormal fixation:

It goes without saying that no decent person would deliberately fill their Twitter timeline with such foul and disgusting verbal imagery, yet this is Bill Schmalfeldt’s customary and routine mode of discourse.

Nor is this merely a matter of a thuggish personality with an obnoxious penchant for crude language. Rather, this would seem to be a symptom of Bill Schmalfeldt’s perverse psycho-sexual fixations:

Heck, if you’re a man and you’re honest with yourself, you LIKE being on the “doling it out”end of anal sex.  How many heterosexual men reading this diary right now have never asked their wife or girlfriend to just take a deep breath, relax, “I’ll just put in the tip and we’ll see how it goes,” and then you ram it home like Captain Kidd jamming his sword back into his scabbard while she hollers “takeitouttakeitouttakeitout” and you tell her to just relax and it won’t hurt so bad and she starts kicking and screaming takeitOUTtakeitOUTtakeitOUT youfuckingbastardpieceofshit and you finally do (because the walls are thin and your neighbors just LOVE calling the cops) and you tell her she should have at least given herself a chance to relax and enjoy it and she (if she’s your wife) doesn’t let you anywhere near her with “that thing” for weeks and if she’s your girlfriend she stops returning your calls?

You stay classy, Bill Schmalfeldt!

    I hope you’re right. It certainly rings true that he would be a low priority – for anyone, and in any circumstances.

    See Matthew W’s response above.

    But an orange jumpsuit for BS would have to be special ordered. Or they might just buy a cheap orange tent.

    Um… OK… That paragraph of copraphilia pretty much sullied my mind. But it did help to remind me that “back door pleasure” is the domain of the deranged.

    Deb Frisch had the same pathology, and actually posted pictures on Craigslist, looking for “poop play” partners.
