“It’s all horseshit.”

#BillSchmalfeldt: Delusions of Adequacy

Let’s back up for a minute and reexamine that Cabin Boy quote from 18 February.

It’s all horseshit. It’s all absolute horseshit. And I and my family have been put through pain and suffering because Lee Stranahan has a grudge. Because somebody, in my opinion, is paying Lee Stranahan to file these charges against me, in the hopes that I will either break or die.  I got some fucking news for you, Stranny [pause] Walker, Hoggy, Frey [pause] and Frey [pause] beware the Ides of March.

Somebody paid Lee Stranahan to file charges? Oh, come now. Who would care enough about a loser like Bill Schmalfeldt to want to spend the money?

Bill Schmalfeldt is a failure. Other than people who are dealing with his harassment and a few others who enjoy laughing at his gaffes, almost no one cares about him and the ways he blights the Internet. He’s a functional nonentity with a vanishingly small readership and essentially nonexistent listenership.

He is, at most, a vile insect, and some of us who he has annoyed have taken swats at him, but no one had to pay us. Certainly, the filthiness the Stranahan family endured from the Cabin Boy was sufficient motivation for Lee Stranahan to seek redress, and it’s not surprising that the Walker family sought relief either.

I have been able to bring a bit of justice to Schmalfeldt via a peace order. No one paid me to do so. I brought legal action because I was tired of being harassed. I’ve paid every cent of the my legal expenses out of my own pocket. Sore Loserman Bill has filed a Motion to Modify the peace order. I won’t speak to the merits (if there are any) of his motion while it is before the court, that’s my lawyer’s job, but I will say that it strikes me as foolish attempt to relitigate the case. The judge ruled on the facts and the law and issued the peace order. Schmalfeldt is also appealing the case. It will be interesting to see if the appeals court gets to the case before the peace order expires and makes his appeal moot. Meanwhile, the Cabin Boy continues to misrepresent the terms of the peace order in a lame effort to justify his ongoing violations.

Although some of his associates are troubling, I’m not afraid of Bill Schmalfeldt per se. I’m annoyed by him. I intend to use all lawful means to make sure that he stops bothering me. If that shuts him down so that he can’t bother anyone else, it will be a nice bonus.

No one hopes that Bill Schmalfeldt will “break or die.” He not that important to anyone. His victims just wish the grossly inadequate loser would quit wasting Internet bandwidth and leave decent people alone. As Mr. T says,

I pity the fool.

  1. Very, very apt explanation and description, John. However, you were much more kind than the freakshow deserves.

  2. From Amazon Bio “As he sneaks up on his 60th birthday and, shortly after, his 15th anniversary as a “Parky,” Bill intends to put the negative behind him once and for all and to focus his energies on the search for a cure, the hunt for new and better treatments for this crippling neurological disorder.” Focus….Focus…..

  3. Last night I watched Informant on Netflix. That’s the Brandon Darby story. He started out as an Anarchist. Went to New Orleans after Katrina to rescue a friend, and stayed to organize people to rebuild their devastated community. Eventually he worked with the FBI to infiltrate a group of kids driving from Texas to protest the 2008 Republican National Convention. Based on his testimony one of the kids served four years for making Molotov cocktails. Later he hit the speaking circuit with Breitbart warning Tea Party audiences about the Left.

    Throughout his story I was struck by how often his personal principles shifted in response to who was his friend. He became an Anarchist after someone rescued him from sexual abuse as a young runaway. He first contacted the FBI via a New Orleans police official who he befriended during his post-Katrina work. Then he spent a lot of time with his FBI handler, talking and crying through his feelings after the suicide of the person he initially reported. At the end of the movie he is seen telling his story and receiving praise and friendship from Tea Part conservative audiences, as well as Black churchgoers he helped after Katrina.

    I truly believe that–far more often–people believe what their friends believe, rather than choosing their friends based on common belief. Watch Informant with that observation in mind and you’ll see what I mean.

    Bill Schmalfeldt hates, but also hurts. His friends apparently believe in a certain style of politics: underhanded personal destruction. Some here have noticed he can’t stay away from harassing Hoge and McCain, and have speculated that Brett pays him to stay engaged. But rather than paying him, what if Brett is offering (faked) friendship to him while simultaneously manipulating him into harassment? To take advantage of a Parkinson’s sufferer like that would be low and vile, but given Brett’s history I can’t rule it out.

    How is anyone helping Bill through ridicule, calling for his suicide, and reminding him how much it sucks to be him? I’m not saying to let him get away with his damaging behavior, but is there a line between self defense and unnecessary offensive denigration? And if my guess above about Brett (and Neal?) manipulation is correct, isn’t it more important to focus on those actors rather than someone like Bill who is being manipulated into ultimately self destructive behavior?

    The best possible end state here is that Bill sees through the manipulation, stops harassing Brett’s adversaries, and perhaps even becomes an ally in the fight to expose and stop Brett’s campaigns of personal destruction and harassment.

    An intermediate goal would be to show observers that the fight really isn’t with Bill as the prime mover, but with his associates putting him up to his nasty behavior.

      • I’m not, and a quick foray into Amazon.com didn’t turn up anything obviously on point. Any initial breadcrumbs to follow would be much appreciated!

    • Good post. Insightful, and more than likely much of your speculation is on the mark.

      Note that Brett has gotten CBBS to push his causes online as far back as 10 years ago. Who knows what percentage of BS’ s behavior is egged on by Brett, both directly and through proxy handlers. Brett has a lot to atone for and we must not let him get off the hook this time.

    • Helping Bill? For all any of us know — those who actually choose to hold Bill Schmalfeldt accountable for his years of anti-social behavior, threats, and abuse may very well be the ONLY people in Bill’s kooky world “helping” him at all.

      Your comment reads to me as FAR TOO WILLING to give Bill Schmalfeldt a “Free Pass” from personal responsibility.

      He’s not a child. He’s a manipulative sociopath. He lashes out and attempts to punish good-and-decent people because… who cares.

      And, before anyone opts to walk down the “Parkinson’s Disease” route… I’ll stop you right there. I have much (far too much) personal experience with loved ones and PD. I’d wager Bill Schmalfeldt was an abusive, seeping, throwing-his-weight-around maggot well before he was afflicted and diagnosed with such a heinous disease.

      It needs to stop.

      • I just read this over at TMZ, swiped it (but, NOT in its entirety, so… Don’t copyright taze me, bros!), and, I am banking on the fact that with a pint and some pleading all will be forgiven by NealNBob…

        “Ordinarily, I fancy my voice to be one of mercy and compassion in a cruel and unfeeling world, and would advise Mr. Hoge to let William’s humiliation be punishment enough. To be sure, he’s a maniac and five-eighths retarded, but none of those things are his fault.

        However, William has proven himself to be anything but an ordinary case. Whenever the Christian spirit of charity has compelled someone to lift their boot from his neck, William tries to propagandize it as some manner of victory, proving also that he’s a witless blowhard with something less than a normal allotment of humility. He sees mercy as nothing more than weakness and a further invitation for him to prey (albeit comically) upon others.

        For that reason… ”

      • Yes, and what Neal wrote too. Well done, both of you.

        Parallel, since you were looking for other sources, I’d suggest Ken White’s piece at Popehat for a view from someone who is most assuredly not right wing.

        It includes some examples of the freakshow’s tactics from a few years ago. He has not improved with age. He still occasionally attacks the family who lost a baby, though they have zero to do with him and don’t even mention him. He also tries to cause others to lose their jobs, among many other reprehensible, real-world/real-evil things he has made a habit of.

        You may be willing to forgive him, but those who’ve been harassed for years both online and off aren’t likely to be as willing to write him off as just a tool. Oh, he’s a tool, no doubt, but a sociopathic one in his own right.

      • Completely agree it needs to stop, and he needs to be held accountable for his behavior. Calling him out on his abusive harassment is absolutely appropriate, more speech being the best antidote for bad speech.

        All I am saying is that personal insults, reciprocal threats and invitations to suicide aren’t helpful. Why?

        1. Because they tend to foreclose the (granted, vanishingly remote) possibility that he will come to his senses and maybe even try to atone for all the horrible things he has done.

        2. More tactically, such hateful speech from our side also gives the opposition credence to claim moral equivalence when they practice politics of self destruction.

        3. Also, hateful speech can be quoted by his handlers to cement their hold on him through fake appeals to solidarity and shared victimhood.

        Go ahead and point out his antisocial, criminal and sociopathic behavior, but also be sure to remind all observers that he is probably aided and abetted by others who prefer to hide behind veils of anonymity and covert manipulation.

        • I generally concur with your point of view. Threats are not tolerated on this blog, and I have tried to minimize truly over-the-top comments.

  4. Good Lord the The Cretin in a Can™ (thanks for that one Paul!) is back and he REALLY wants to go to jail. I’d be willing to bet our host has his logo copyrighted.

    • I’ll bet he”s never read “The Fine Print” at the top of the page.

      Seriously Willy, you should. Have someone help you with the big words.

      It seems to me that the cops told him to go piss up a rope. And now Willy haz sadz.

      • Indeed, Perry.

        Something caused his mushy mind and sticky paws to double-down on stupid.

        And, true to form — Bill Schmalfeldt (instead of shutting up and sitting down) has opted to once again poke the bear.

        Dumb. Dumb. Dumb.

  5. Indeed, Parallel. It.Needs.To.Stop. Bill Schmalfeldt needs to stop.

    And, my .02? — To each their own (as long as laws/venues are respected).

    The only threats I have witnessed on Hogewash! have been in the form of screenshots and/or others quoting BILL SCHMALFELDT.

    Parallel — You come across as questioning/judging the methods of others… yet, YOU challenge and disparage Bill Schmalfledt over-and-over again on Twitter regarding BK/NR. Have you ever challenged BK and/or NR directly? Why do you simply “hassle” and “call out” and “badger” BS about others?

    Again… to each their own. I’m not judging.

    I have never been on the personal, receiving end of Bill Schmalfeldt’s venom and evil… with that said… I will never judge the approach others take who have been. But, if mocking, ridiculing, and calling Bill Schmalfeldt out assists his victims, and brings attention to his evil… count me in.
