Cha-CHING! OccupyRebellion Puts Money in Aaron Walker’s Pocket

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 2:32 pm

I recently said:

Tomorrow I pledge to give $1 to Aaron for every tweet she makes disparaging him, up to $50. This way she will know that every time she hits that enter button — cha-CHING! It’s money in Aaron’s pocket.

She waited until late in the day to get in her shots — but she earned Aaron some money yesterday:

I just sent Aaron $21 — one dollar for each tweet I found by OccupyRebellion on July 6 disparaging Aaron. Technically, I sent it to the RightSolutions Bloggers Defense fund, which is the top link on his site. That’s on top of a previous, larger donation I made to the same fund the other day. You can make this donation with a simple PayPal payment; no personal information need be transmitted (other than your email, which always accompanies a PayPal donation).

If anyone wants to match that, please donate to Aaron at his blog and let me know in the comments that you did so. I’d like to be able to tell OccupyRebellion exactly how much money she earned Aaron yesterday.

UPDATE: Dianna matches! We’re up to $42!

UPDATE: Matched by Russ. Up to $63 earned by OccupyRebellion for Aaron!

UPDATE: Matched by an anonymous donor. Total is now $84.

UPDATE: sybilllll on Twitter said she has made it $105.

UPDATE: Another Anonymous donor tosses in $100 for a new total of $205!

UPDATE: Kevin in ABQ on Twitter is in for $20, and MickeyD is in for $21. New running total is $246. SPQR also donated but didn’t say how much.

UPDATE: AG Conservative on Twitter is in for $21. That’s $267!

UPDATE: Allen G and ellersburgwhoresonellis each kick in $21. Total is now $309!

UPDATE: $21 from Gazzer. $20 from jem. $22 from Machinist. PatAZ kicks in $21. And an anonymous poster kicks in $250. Colonel Haiku and chilly donate unspecified amounts.

So that’s $643, plus whatever was donated by SPQR, Colonel Haiku, and chilly. If any of them tell me the amount they donated, we’ll up the running total. But for now, it stands at $643.

UPDATE: Henrietta Jacobs, PPs43, and Ami have each donated $21. That brings our total to $706, plus unspecified amounts from SPQR, Colonel Haiku, and chilly. It sounds like plemmen may have contributed as well but I’m not sure.

  1. And its sheer coincidence that their lies and Brett Kimberlin’s lies match up.

    Sheer coincidence.

    And its appropriate to treat Brett Kimberlin like Tim McVeigh, since Kimberlin is a convicted terrorist who used bombs to terrorize a community as was McVeigh.

  2. Matched your $21.

    Aaron’s going to need a lot of help.

    Please explain to me why Anonymous types all resort instantly to either pedophilic threats, pedophilic references, or accusing people of being tied to pedophiles? And then get arrested for having child porn?

    You’d think they’d have better sense!

  3. Dianna, their psychopathologies compel them.

    Comment by SPQR (26be8b) — 7/7/2012 @ 2:47 pm

  4. SPQR – that’s a raft of people wandering around with psychopathologies!

    Comment by Dianna (f12db5) — 7/7/2012 @ 2:52 pm

  5. The defense fund is a good thing to support. I think it is great of you Pat to support it and promote it.

    I don’t understand why Aaron bothers with these people. Aren’t they best just ignored? Are they worth the time and effort? Does it matter what these people tweet?

    Comment by Mattsky (c9ebaf) — 7/7/2012 @ 3:02 pm

  6. Dianna, indeed it is. Part of it is that there is a large group of people who feel a need for the world to contain a conspiracy of evil people to explain why they are not in charge. Others are just wannabe criminals who need the thrill of seeming to belong to a “gang” on the internet.

    And some are conmen trying to run a con on the left to snag out some of the sweet sweet campaign cash.

    Comment by SPQR (26be8b) — 7/7/2012 @ 3:11 pm

  7. Matched.

    Some day, a forensic psychologist is going to have a field day writing a book about those people.

    Comment by Russ (13eae2) — 7/7/2012 @ 3:15 pm

  8. Could we get Billy Ayers to open those “Re-Education Camps” he had plans for, there are a lot of people on the Left that need to avail themselves of the facility.

    Comment by AD-RtR/OS! (2bb434) — 7/7/2012 @ 3:25 pm

  9. AD, these useless little leftwing f’ups don’t realize that come a real revolution, they are first up against the wall. Their fellow travelers would make sure that they got acute lead poisoning faster than anything.

    Not that they could actually organize any real revolution – they couldn’t organize a simple protest against a financial system hated by 3/4trs of the country without turning it into a fiasco of human waste and drum circles.

  10. Just block OccupyRebellion and move the hell on. You don’t feed the trolls.

    Comment by Kaitian (20f354) — 7/7/2012 @ 3:50 pm

  11. I just kicked in $21. For freedom sake, I can forego Stoli and drink Sky for a month.
    A little voice was telling me it was the right thing to do.

  12. Kaitian, this strikes me as a perfectly just punishment for Occupy Rebellion. I’m rather enjoying it!

    Comment by Dianna (f12db5) — 7/7/2012 @ 4:07 pm

  13. OK, I sent him some cash Patterico.

    Comment by SPQR (26be8b) — 7/7/2012 @ 4:10 pm

  14. These loons sure show a definite lack of basic logic in their weird ravings.

    All to support their conspiracy fantasies.

    Comment by SPQR (26be8b) — 7/7/2012 @ 4:18 pm

  15. I hope this causes Occupy Rebellion to gnash her/his teeth and stamp her/his foot on the ground and huff and puff.

    Comment by Dustyn H (2aef62) — 7/7/2012 @ 4:48 pm

  16. I am donating $21 to the legal defense fund. Hope Brett. Ones after me. I am not afraid of bullies.

  18. SPQR: How much? I’m keeping a running tally.

    Comment by Patterico (feda6b) — 7/7/2012 @ 5:12 pm

  19. I am matching the $21 to Aaron’s defense fund.

    Comment by Allen G (f617f8) — 7/7/2012 @ 5:24 pm

  20. I have kicked in $21.

    (I have not been around in awhile. The handle is an ancient one, that I adopted during and because of that wonderfully entertaining “Glenn Greewald Sockpuppets” controversy.)

    Comment by ellersburgwhoresonellis (1192f4) — 7/7/2012 @ 5:27 pm

  21. I’m updating the post with all this; thanks very much and I’m sure Aaron thanks you. $309 so far.

    Comment by Patterico (feda6b) — 7/7/2012 @ 5:33 pm

  22. ellersburgwhoresonellis,

    Stick around!

    Comment by Patterico (feda6b) — 7/7/2012 @ 5:33 pm

  23. $309?

    *Snicker*

    Is she frothing, yet?

    Comment by Dianna (f12db5) — 7/7/2012 @ 6:02 pm

  24. I sent him $21 too. Show these idiots we mean business.

    Comment by Gazzer (cd4515) — 7/7/2012 @ 6:10 pm

  25. Sent $20. And come here and realize I was a buck short. It will be more than made up.

    Comment by jem (0f6e3f) — 7/7/2012 @ 6:29 pm

  26. #25,
    Got you covered jem.

    Sent $22.00, $21.00 for me and $1.00 extra.

    Comment by Machinist (b6f7da) — 7/7/2012 @ 6:39 pm

  27. another check coming your way, Aaron…

    Comment by Colonel Haiku (c177f4) — 7/7/2012 @ 6:55 pm

  28. #26,
    Thanks Machinist, I’ll cover you next time.

    Comment by jem (0f6e3f) — 7/7/2012 @ 7:16 pm

  29. Meanwhile, this BrooksBayne looks to be another clown show. I followed links from Stacy McCain and found what looked like whackyville. I couldn’t tell whose side he was really on.

    Comment by SPQR (26be8b) — 7/7/2012 @ 7:20 pm

  30. I joined the fun. $21.00 from me.

    Comment by PatAZ (41722e) — 7/7/2012 @ 7:43 pm

  31. SPQR, I have an on-line friend of long standing who does not like or trust BB. I, personally, know nothing but what I’ve seen in the last month, and I am beyond weary of internet slap-fights, so I have nothing to say on my own behalf.

    However, I care a great deal about the underlying story, and am focused on that.

    Drama from peripheral players? I don’t care, because I haven’t time to assess claims and counter-accusations.

    Comment by Dianna (f12db5) — 7/7/2012 @ 8:37 pm

  32. Is there some smug satisfaction in professing to come to the aid of Islamic terrorists offended by searing cartoons? Are they really helpless dolts, or just partners?

    Comment by pdxnag (00b9ef) — 7/7/2012 @ 8:59 pm

  33. done.

    Comment by chilly (d877d8) — 7/7/2012 @ 9:19 pm

  34. Sent $250. (waving to Occuoy Rebellion)

    Comment by Anonymous regular (1b481d) — 7/7/2012 @ 9:45 pm

  35. My regrets and moral support offered. Obamanomics has me in deep Debbie.

    But thanks to OckReb for her fundraising for Aaron, I know he needs it after both he and his wife lost their jobs because their employer was frightened by the psycho terrorist.

    No wonder NYC’s schools are so screwy.

    Comment by Estragon (13e813) — 7/7/2012 @ 9:54 pm

  36. My oh my. Ford has managed to raise over $700.00 for Aaron in just one evening.

    By all means Ford, keep tweeting.

    My pleasure.

  38. Fisking the OccupyRebellion tool:
    Brett didn’t frame you for anything. You’re a f***ing loon.
    – Oh . . . so, from this moment forward Brett will leave Aaron alone?

    Your actions have created a lynch mob where people are now threatening to kill him and his family.
    – There’s a mob standing outside his home with pitchforks & torches and a noose right now, is there? Words and deeds; I’ve heard that they are two separate things.

    YOU begged Muslim extremists to come after you with your Muslim hate blog.
    – Sure. Aaron “begged” extremists to come after him. That’s how we all read it. And this has WHAT to do with Kimberlin?

    You told people to submit their Muslim hate cartoons to you with REAL NAMES AND ADDRESS.
    – And your proof of this is WHERE?

    You could have gotten those people killed who submitted their Muslim hate cartoons.
    – Ya hear that, Aaron? No more blogging for you. Why, you could put somebody’s eye out with that thing!

    The lawsuits, swattings, and dirt-bag political terrorists are YOUR friends.
    – They repeat the lame charge that Aaron incited violent rhetoric on the part of a couple of his readers; they repeat the baseless accusation that “friends” of Aaron are responsible for the SWATtings. Rinse, lie, repeat.

    I treat you like I do Aaron because of what I’ve seen you do to so many people.
    – In real life, of course, this person would most likely be unable to produce ANYONE that Aaron has treated horribly. But, when ad homs rule the day, then one must ad hom away!

    Being part of a lynch mob against a man and his family. For what??
    – Wait. I thought Aaron was just inciting the mob; now he’s a part of it? AND he is personally going after Kimberlin’s family? Wow! I bet the evidence you have of this is explosive (pardon the pun). Feel free to produce it at any time . . .

    Never mind the crickets; just produce your proof that Aaron personally threatened Kimberlin’s family . . .

    Moving on: Brett has been out of prison for 10+ years but you all act like he’s Timothy McVeigh.
    – This is categorically untrue!

    If it WAS true, then we could whizz on his ashes, too.

    And where is the 911 call of your fake swatting?
    – Remember kids, you too can win an argument by telling an outright lie! Try it the next time mom & dad tell you to do something you don’t want to do. Works like a charm, every time.

  39. Doubled down because I have been sitting silently on the sidelines so as to not draw attention from the central issue in this battle. I am not out of the fight, only maintaining a low profile. Ring that cash register loudly!

    Comment by plemmen (6cd503) — 7/8/2012 @ 6:05 am

  40. Matched for $21!

    Let’s make this a weekly occurrence and get the whole right blogosphere involved.

    Comment by Henrietta Jacobs (1ef2f0) — 7/8/2012 @ 6:36 am

  41. Count me in for $21.

    Comment by PPs43 (af65ec) — 7/8/2012 @ 7:03 am

  42. $21 more to defend Free Speech! I’m not too worried about @OccupyRebellion gaining the power to send any of us to the poorhouse. Leave that to Hope and Change.

    Comment by Ami (534ee4) — 7/8/2012 @ 9:20 am

  43. plemmen,

    Are you saying you sent $21 as well?

    Comment by Patterico (feda6b) — 7/8/2012 @ 2:24 pm

  44. I sent $100. Keep fighting Aaron. You have right on your side.

    Comment by Mickey D (48deb7) — 7/8/2012 @ 7:05 pm

  45. Mickey D,

    Is that in addition to the $21 you said you already sent?

    Comment by Patterico (feda6b) — 7/8/2012 @ 7:15 pm

  46. I’m in for $21.
