Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Here’s a post from five years ago today—

Dread Pirate #BrettKimberlin

Posted on

Team Kimberlin has a new website called Bloggers Offense Team. (No, I won’t link to it.) The site’s logo is shown on the left. The choice of the pirate-related logo is interesting. Pirates aren’t semi-sympathetic, comedic characters from a Johnny Depp movie. They are criminals.

It think a mask just slipped.

And that’s how Brett Kimberlin came to be called The Dread Pirate Kimberlin. That nickname later expanded to include The Dread Performer Kimberlin, The Dread Pedo Kimberlin, and The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin. A couple of days later, I published this further explanation—

The Dread Pirate Roberts, so the story goes, is a pirate of near-mythical reputation, someone feared across the seven seas for his ruthlessness and swordfighting prowess, and who is well known for taking no prisoners. Ships immediately surrender and give up their cargos rather than be captured, a fate they imagine to be certain death.

The Dread Pirate Kimberlin is more like a legend in his own mind, a pretender who wishes to be feared for his ruthlessness and legal ability and to be known for vanquishing all comers in court. Critics, he thinks, should immediately stop telling the truth about him and give up their First Amendment rights at his command.

It turns out that Dread Pirate Kimberlin’s legal acumen seems to be as fictional as Dread Pirate Roberts’ existence. And no one will surrender to Dread Pirate Kimberlin.

And that’s been pretty accurate thus far.

  1. “Critics, he thinks, should immediately stop telling the truth about him and give up their First Amendment rights at his command.”
    Speaking only for myself – this is exactly why I’m here. His lawfare and bullying is anti-freedom. Brett Kimberlin has sued people for letting the world know about his violence and his inappropriate behavior with a minor. Also his music. People who don’t mind him building bombs should at least know about the music.

  2. I came here for the free speech. I stayed because Dumbf5ck is so unintentionally hilarious. Not for Mr. Hoge, et. al who have to keep going to court, I realize. That’s the only thing that makes me feel bad, is that the intense joy I get at mocking Team Pedo is tempered by the knowledge that it really does inconvenience you guys.

  3. I came as soon as I noticed my Cousin was sniffing about.

    I stay because free speech is very important.

    Also, because Cousin Bill gets either his ass or his teeth handed to him on a regular basis…

  4. Well, he knows a bit about the law.

    Trouble is, he knows *just* enough to get himself into trouble. And sometimes, he just gets into trouble because he just doesn’t care about following the law he barley understands.
