One of the most easily falsifiable claims made by Brett Kimberlin in the Kimberlin v. Most of the Rest of the Universe, et al. RICO Remnant LOLsuit was … oh, here’s the TKPOTD from five years ago today.

One of the the things The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin whines about in his Kimberlin v. Most of the Universe, et al. LOLsuit is how he feels defamed because he’s been called a terrorist. He would have the court believe that being called a terrorist after 15 October, 2010, portrayed him in a false light.
That first result is the Wikipedia “Kimberlin” page which contains a link to the article about Brett Kimberlin. While the “Kimberlin” page was created in 2008, the article about TDPK wasn’t created until 2012. Gasp! Wikipedia refers to Kimberlin as a terrorist! <sarc>It must be part of the conspiracy!</sarc>
The next hit is a Baltimore Sun article from 1996 reviewing Mark Singer’s book Citizen K. It refers to Kimberlin as a terrorist. The third hit is a piece from Daily Kos that refers to Kimberlin as a bomber “who terrorized the city of Speedway, Indiana …” Neither the BS nor Daily Kos qualify as rightwing nut job publications.
And there are plenty more references to Kimberlin’s history as a bomber/terrorist/criminal. His reputation was out there on the Internet well before 2010 and, certainly, well before I began blogging in 2011.

Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin had never sued me, I would never have argued that he was failing to state a claim for defamation because his reputation as a serial bomber was so bad that there was no way to lower the public’s opinion of him; other defendants wouldn’t have echoed that argument in their motions to dismiss; and no court would have dismissed one of Kimberlin’s LOLsuits on that basis. Now, a court has found that his reputation is so bad that he’s defamation proof.
His worst mistake in all of his litigation was to sue me.
Meanwhile, his latest attempt at relevance seems to be foundering. itstime2020 dot org has essentially no traffic, and the@ itstime_2020 Twitter account still only has two followers.
