There are no duplicates there. As a matter of fact, I missed one tweet with identical content.

Cue Twilight Zone music.


Isn’t that special?

Don’t think it is. This is almost every day for a year, folks.

I’m not joking.

Kimberlin’s Velvet Revolution Claims Kimberlin Was SWATted

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 7:10 am

On May 31, 2012:

The image is from, but I don’t recommend you go there without serious proxy protection.

Interesting point: Kimberlin was interviewed by an ABC News reporter after his alleged SWATting, and apparently didn’t mention it. That reporter did not contact me until June 5, 2012. Her piece came out the next day, on June 6 — 6 days after Kimberlin’s alleged SWATting. Yet he does not appear to have said a word about it to her. Here’s what Kimberlin said, according to reporter Arlette Saenz:

Kimberlin denied he was responsible for the post, even saying that he does not maintain any online presence and said he and his family have been victims of threats themselves and accused the bloggers of constructing a “false narrative” about him.

“I don’t blog, I don’t comment, I don’t tweet on any blogs at all. This is a right-wing attack on me and my organizations and it’s a smear job. It’s a swift boat action against us,” Kimberlin said. “What they’re doing is an obstruction of justice and it’s defamatory. We’re cooperating with the authorities in this matter. They have engaged in a massive smear campaign against us that has resulted in death threats to me and my family and to others associated with us.”

He mentioned death threats, in a story about SWATting, and he had already been SWATted, but he didn’t mention the SWATting?

I suppose it’s possible. I didn’t publicly mention mine for almost a year, primarily because I didn’t want to interfere with ongoing or potential investigations.

Have they already wrapped up Kimberlin’s investigation?

FLASHBACK: According to an article in the Indy Star by Joe Gelarden, while awaiting trial on the bombing, Kimberlin promised another inmate bail money to go set off another bomb with similar components while Kimberlin was incarcerated, creating an alibi for Kimberlin:

You ever feel like someone is looking for a way to frame you for something? I’ve felt like that for months, ever since an anonymous Kimberlin supporter called “LulzShack” talked last year about how I was going to prison for unspecified criminal deeds.

Just throwing that out there.

Certainly, if this really happened, I want the criminals caught. But given the track record of the complainant, I have a very hard time believing a legitimate crime happened.
