I don’t think Bill Schmalfeldt is a pedophile. I think that he is a vile and disgusting thug who delights in crudely splicing other people’s faces into homoerotic porn and who has a sick fascination with scatological “humor,” but the Cabin Boy has his limits. He isn’t a pedophile, and I believe him when he says he finds pedophilia repugnant.
However, I do believe that Brett Kimberlin most likely is a pedophile. As another blogger has noted, there’s too much smoke for there to be no fire. Given the relationship with the Barton girl described in Citizen K and what Tetyana Kimberlin has been able to document to date, yes, I believe that Brett Kimberlin is probably a pedophile. My confidence level for that belief is approaching my confidence in Newton’s Laws of Motion.
Similarly, there’s very little doubt in my mind of the connection between Bill Schmalfeldt and Brett Kimberlin. Schmalfeldt is Brett Kimberlin’s pal, and that association has resulted in some folks referring to the Cabin Boy as an enabler of a pedophile or as a PedoPal. If the shoe fits, …
If Bill Schmalfeldt were capable of honestly reviewing the evidence, I believe that he would come to the same conclusion about Brett Kimberlin that I and many others have, and I believe that, given such an understanding, the Cabin Boy would jump ship.
So why does Schmalfledt stay on board?
