The Real “Velvet Revolution”

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 11:26 pm

A new site explains:

On November 19, 1989, the people of Prague, in the former state of Czechoslovakia, gathered to commemorate a massacre of Czech students by Nazi Germany fifty years earlier. By the end of the day, the gathering turned into a demonstration against a ruling Communist government that had begun massacring Czechs and Slovaks from virtually the moment the Nazis were booted out. By December 29, 1989, without a shot fired, the protesters had driven out their Communist masters, electing poet, playwright, and political prisoner Vaclav Havel as interim President. This peaceful revolt by a peaceful people against their Stalinist puppet government became known as the “Velvet Revolution”.

On November 30, 2004, convicted terrorist bomber, drug dealer, and perjurer Brett Kimberlin formed a Maryland corporation for the purpose of soliciting tax-exempt donations from the public and charitable foundations, to promote an alleged “network of more than 100 progressive organizations reaching millions of people demanding progressive change through our various campaigns”. Campaigns such as offering bounties for the head of the Chamber of Commerce, the impeachment of a Supreme Court Justice, and proof that John Kerry actually won the 2004 presidential election.

The new, bogus organization was also called “Velvet Revolution.”

The proprietors of the new site seem to think there is a contrast there. And they intend to do something about it:

If you link to this post, this site rises to the top of a search for Velvet Revolution. If you add this site to your blogroll, this site rises even further. And Brett Kimberlin’s site falls.

And when the time comes for George Soros to write the annual check to Kimberlin’s Velvet Revolution, maybe the due diligence lackey will enter the Great Man’s office, saying, “Mr. Soros, I think you ought to read this…”

Because we’re going to talk about Brett Kimberlin, as long as he keeps filing his frivolous lawsuits. Which by the look of things isn’t going to stop, until Kimberlin slips up and goes back to prison. Even then he won’t stop.

I can already hear Brett Kimberlin’s whiny twerp voice wailing about this. Judge! They tried to take money away from me!

  5. As with Charter 88. against Thatcher in the UK, that trivialized Charter 77.

    That would be sweet. He never should have been paroled in the first place.

    Without a doubt, but now that he’s got his double secret exoneration, whattayagonnado?

  9. Since BK’s site comes up second on a google search for Velvet Revolution, why not report the site to google as irrelevant to the search for Velvet Revolution?

    It has nothing to do with the real Velvet Revolution that helped overthrow communism in Czechoslovakia and is run by a convicted bomber, convicted drug dealer, convicted perjurer and probable con man.

    That’s what I reported to Google. Why not other people who feel the same way?
