Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Brett Kimberlin has tried to paint his enemies as racists (especially Stacy McCain) and Islamophobes (especially Aaron Walker). The following is from a piece that ran six years ago today titled Dread Pirate #BrettKimberlin and Muslim Hurt Feelings.

In an earlier episode of our series, we saw that TDPK seems to have a special sensitivity for the feelings of Muslims who have been hurt by depictions of their Prophet. Indeed, in his most recent court filing TDPK asserts that the whole brouhaha between him and Aaron Walker relates to disrespectful treatment of Mohammed in pictures posted on one of Mr. Walker’s websites.

<mockery>One of the claims that TDPK has made all along is that he has been concerned that Mr. Walker would be the victim of violence at the hands of Islamic extremists. As a result of that fear, he needed to out the Aaron Worthing nom de cyber. Clearly, TDPK has been taking lesson from the same strategist who had to burn villages in order to save them.

If it were honest, TDPK’s concern for Mr. Walker’s safety would be touching.

What would make more sense would be for TDPK to be concerned for his own safety should he fall into the hands of those same Islamic extremists. TDPK is an avowed atheist, and avowing atheism is consider telling a lie about Allah by the Koran. Furthermore, sura 4:89 says:

They desire that you should disbelieve as they have disbelieved, so that you might be (all) alike; therefore take not from among them friends until they fly (their homes) in Allah’s way; but if they turn back, then seize them and kill them wherever you find them, and take not from among them a friend or a helper.

TDPK may be even less wise in his selection of friends than in his selection of enemies.</mockery>

Here’s an interesting factoid about the Justice Through Music Project website. It still has a couple of posts up from 2011 and 2012 about working with activists from moslem countries as part of a State Department program. (Claims in some of The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin’s LOLsuits have related to losing that work with the State Department.) While the texts of the posts are still online, all of the pictures have been taken down.

Hmmmm.

One of the things that The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin has claimed in some of his LOLsuits is that the truthful reporting by my codefendants and me harmed a relationship between Justice Through Music Project and the State Department. He claimed to have had a business relationship with the State Department’s International Leadership Program to teach foreign activists how to use social media. As part of my preparation to defend those LOLsuits, I filed a Freedom of Information Act request with the State Department asking for the details of Kimberlin’s work for them.

Here is their reply—

TL;DR—We won’t admit to having anything to do with him.

Hmmmmm.

The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin rattles on and on about false narratives. He’s a primary source of them himself. Consider these paragraphs from his second amended complaint in the Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO Madness.That’s clearly designed to give the impression that Justice Through Music Project (or Velvet Revolution US) and, thus, Brett Kimberlin were deriving income from the State Department because of participation an “International Leadership Program.” Let’s look a bit deeper.

First, the actual program run by the State Department is called the International Visitor Leadership Program. There doesn’t seem to be any U. S. Government record of JTMP or VRUS participating in the program.

Second, there doesn’t seem to be any record of payments from the Department of State to either Justice Through Music Project or Velvet Revolution US for any purpose during the “three years prior to 2012.” The industrious Gentle Reader may verify that at usaspending.gov.

This doesn’t mean that TDPK never talked to foreign visitors at some sort of State Department event. He may have. But if he did, there doesn’t seem to be any evidence that he or his not-for-profits were being paid as a contractors or grantees by the government. However, most taxpayers would agree that is was not an unwise decision to refrain from using a convicted felon in a such a potentially sensitive role.
