In April, 2015, Twitter suspended my @wjjhoge account based on false accusations of targeted harassment made by Brett Kimberlin. Eight years ago today, Breitbart Unmasked published a post bragging about my account being suspended and attacking Ken White and others for supporting me. That post was still up as of 10 pm last night.The post falsely describes my coverage of Team Kimberlin.
For the last 3 years or so Mr. Hoge has been on a daily 7 day a week posting grind about Mr. Kimberlin and his family and children, and his roving hatred masked as a psyop propaganda campaign against Mr. Schmalfeldt, who is disabled and suffers from Parkinson’s disease, but still manages to report on Hoge’s activities as best he can.
I have endeavored to keep the members Brett Kimberlin’s family out of my coverage of his activities—except when he dragged them into various situations. As for Bill Schmalfeldt, his disability didn’t not prevent him from scurrying from Maryland to Wisconsin to Iowa to South Carolina (multiple times) to Montana to Oklahoma to Michigan to Missouri to Georgia to Michigan in search of employment over the past seven years.
Meanwhile, I’ve continued keeping an eye on Team Kimberlin for the past seven years, and I’m not done with them yet.
When I was reviewing this BU post last night, I noticed the byline: Marcus Crassus. The real Crassus was one of the three members of the first Triumvirate along with Pompey and Caesar. He was the richest man in Rome and noted for his corruption. His largest military success probably was his defeat of the slave revolt led by Spartacus, but his campaign against the Parthians was a disaster, ending in his defeat and death at the Battle of Carrhae. I suppose that’s an appropriate nom de cyber for a writer at BU.
One more thing—I’m thankful for all the support I have received while dealing with Team Kimberlin, and I owe special thanks to Ken White for putting up the Popehat Signal for me and to Patrick Ostronic for responding as pro bono legal counsel.
