Unless someone sends me a link to check out, I rarely bother with the hallucinatory postings found at Breitbart Unmasked. I did stop by yesterday afternoon after hearing that Xenophon had a post called William Hoge’s Downfall (No, I won’t link to it.). I started laughing at the first sentence.Gentle Readers, I am amazed by my powers of persuasion. If Xenophon is correct, I’ve been able to get you to believe something I don’t and to do so without writing about it.
I’ve never expressed a goal of having Bill Schmalfeldt sent to jail. As I’ve written before, there may be more appropriate sanctions, and it will be up to a judge to decide. The hearing scheduled for today is about extending the peace order for another six months. It’s a civil matter, and no one’s going to jail as a direct result of it unless he’s foolish enough to engage in contempt in front of the judge.
It’s true that I have taken steps to have the current peace order enforced, but that isn’t the subject of this next hearing. It’s true that I am seeking to have Schmalfeldt held in contempt for his violations of the current peace order. That isn’t on the table today either.
My mind’s eye can already see the posts from Team Kimberlin about Hoge now backpedalling. That’s nonsense. Continuing to say the same thing I’ve always said isn’t backpedalling.
IIRC, it was Bill Schmalfeldt who was cocksure that I would be led away in handcuffs back in October, and he’s the one who has bloviated about my peril today. But facts have never been Breitbart Unmasked‘s strong suit.
UPDATE: We saw.
