Although it has lain fallow for over four years now, on of Team Kimberlin’s principal PR organs was the Breitbart Unmasked website. The site’s occasional editor Bill Schmalfeldt call it his “prime source for news, hearsay, lies and innuendo. Oh, yeah. Smears, too!” Eight years ago today BU published a long defamatory screed attacking Aaron Walker, and it was full of hearsay, lies, innuendo, and smears. And sealed court discovery, too! That’s only the opening paragraph. The Gentle Reader can find the whole post still active on the BU website.
Here’s Bill Schmalfeldt’s concern troll comment to the post.It wasn’t Aaron Walker’s blog about free speech and pictures of Muhammed that drew Brett Kimberlin’s interest and ire. It was Aaron’s pro bono legal assistance to a left-wing blogger who Kimberlin had sued for defamation.
It’s was Kimberlin’s attacks on Aaron’s First Amendment rights that backfired and drew the attention of the blogosphere to past and current activities.
