Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Alinsky’s Rule 5 states

Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon. There is no defense. It is almost impossible to counterattack ridicule. Also it infuriates the opposition, who then react to your advantage.

It has certainly been a useful weapon against Team Kimberlin, and one of the ways I’ve poked fun at them has been giving them nicknames. While the unconstitutional gag order was in effect against Aaron Walker, I called Kimberlin “Lord Voldemort (He Who Must Not Be Named).” When Kimberlin posted a pirate-themed website, he became “The Dread Pirate Kimberlin.” When he represented himself in his LOLsuits, he became “The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin.” At other times, other P-words—Perjurer, Performer, Publisher, etc.—were part of the title. When he defaulted on sanctions and other moneys owed, “Dread” became “Deadbeat.”

Other members of Team Kimberlin were assigned positions in the pirate crew. One of the Gentle Readers named Bill Schmalfeldt as the Cabin Boy, so he is now Cabin Boy Bill Schmalfedt™.

This post from nine years ago today was about Schmafledt calling the readers of this blog Old Biddies.

Cabin Boy Bill reads my blog.

RadioWMS ‏Old biddies nattering about nothing on the comment section of Hoge’s blog. A bunch of old women at a quilting bee, gossiping. Seriously.

Nice try, but that nickname won’t stick. I’m Jewish from the waist down.
