Brett Kimberlin has sued me for defamation four times, and he lost all four for those LOLsuits. One of his complaints was that I’ve called him a terrorist. The TKPOTD for seven years ago today took a look at how he was referred to as a terrorist long before I had ever written about him.

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.

In the second state case he filed against me, the court found that his reputation was so poor as a perjurer, drug smuggler, and serial bomber was such that it was impossible to defame him.
And now he’s asking the Supreme Court for relief from his Speedway Bombing conviction.
