Aaron Walker Could Use Your Help
The bad guys are swarming Aaron again and he could use your help.
I told you over the weekend how pro-Occupy and pro-Kimberlin forces had threatened Lee Stranahan and Brandon Darby, who participated in the making of Occupy Unmasked. The story was reported in the Hollywood Reporter:
“We’ll be legitimately raping Brandon Darby and Lee Stranahan for the next several days while they are tied up with the movie premier at the RNC,” reads an email from firstname.lastname@example.org. The email includes Darby’s and Stranahan’s cell phone numbers.
One tweet reads, “While @S[tr]anahan is in Tampa this week, should Texas rapists be told where to find his wife since he supports the rape of everyone else?”
If you want the details, Joe Brooks has them here and here. (The bad guys attempted to wipe some of the evidence off the Internet, but Joe preserved it.)
The tweet about rapists being told where to find Stranahan’s wife came from pro-Kimberlin tweeter OccupyRebellion. Then pro-Kimberlin blogger the Liberal Grouch asked Stranahan: “How would your wife feel about having John Finman Norton skulking around in her back yard taking pictures, Stranny?” After assuring Stranahan that his wife was “safe” the Liberal Grouch added: “Better idea, Stranny. How about we find out where you are staying and rape YOU?” Then he added that nobody would actually do that, throwing insults at Stranahan about his cleanliness, and concluded:
But maybe it would be nice for a pro-rape asshole such as yourself to understand the fear a woman faces at the concept of rape.
How many men do you figure it would take to hold you down, Stranny.
I bet one could do it.
(Emphasis in original.)
The Liberal Grouch also published Stranahan’s address in a post titled “Let’s Visit the Stranahans at Home!”
So: Aaron commented about all that, and the Liberal Grouch twisted Aaron’s words and claimed that Aaron had defamed him somehow. Now pro-Kimberlin entity Breitbart Unmasked says he will be raising money for the Liberal Grouch to sue Aaron.
@aaronworthing @filmladd @liberty_chick @wjjhoge @patterico @dust92 Will be setting up a legal defense fund for Liberal Grouch 2 sue Walker.

Aaron still has no job and is still fighting these cretins in court. He could use your help. Just go to his blog and hit the top PayPal link. I just donated $50.
And if you do donate, please let us know below. Let the bad guys know that you are defending the right to comment about their atrocious behavior.

The goal, as always, is to shut up people who disagree with you. Thus, one group gets to say whatever they please while others are afraid to say anything in response.

I didn’t know you could defame someone on Twitter. I mean, if the medium is the message aren’t all messages supposed to be rude?Kevin M (bf8ad7) — 9/4/2012 @ 8:26 am
As a disabled person myself, I will say that Liberal Grouch is mentally fucked in the head. He has nothing else to do but go around harassing people and “joking” about rape jokes? Hint to LG. Don’t make rape jokes/threats even if you weren’t serious, all reasonable people do not find them funny and can be misconstrued for legitimate threats. If you had done the same to my wife, I would have been filing a restraining order against you as well.
If I said, “Ha ha I wish Liberal Grouch were (insert something negative)” (Disclaimer: I don’t), are you going to misconstrue as a whatever? Unless you would happen to crop my entire post and focus on the part within the quotes?Kaitian (4aadeb) — 9/4/2012 @ 9:08 am

Someone skulking around in someone’s back yard in Texas is likely to have their arse blown away, particularly at night. Hope they realize that Texas is NOT like California or Virginia. We shoot morons like that down here, and usually the cops and the DA don’t even give it a second glance either.Rorschach (c5574d) — 9/4/2012 @ 10:27 am
Actually Rorschach they do give it a second glance. And a third, and a fourth. Texas LE is pretty damn good about making sure they remove most of the brain matter off your property.Bets (793287) — 9/4/2012 @ 10:42 am
“Someone skulking around in someone’s back yard in Texas is likely to have their arse blown away, particularly at night.”
Rorschach – The first problem I have in the current instance is believing the word of a convicted perjurer who seems to have no problem serially lying in legal filings that any backyard skulking was actually going on. YMMV.daleyrocks (bf33e9) — 9/4/2012 @ 10:54 am
Rauhauser is a convicted perjurer?Icy (3cd0cb) — 9/4/2012 @ 11:19 am
“Rauhauser is a convicted perjurer?”
Icy – BK is the one who obtained a Peace Order against Norton based on the skulking in the bushes allegations. His toadies ran with the story.daleyrocks (bf33e9) — 9/4/2012 @ 11:23 am
Icy: If he keeps palling around with Kimby-kins, it’s only a matter of time, really. That’s not exactly the sort of environment that helps foster a strong sense of honesty.
Also, BullcrapUnhinged seems a little unclear on the definition of “defense”. Is it really a “legal defense fund” if you’re the aggressor in the litigation? Though I’ll grant that it’s more likely to fool the gullible than if it was more honestly called a “rabid lawfare fund”.PCachu (e072b7) — 9/4/2012 @ 11:39 am
It’s nice to know that we can always rely on the authorities when presented with threats such as these.

So, surely Kimberlin has a picture of someone stalking him on his property? That’s what OR was claiming on Twitter.blaster (c7bde0) — 9/4/2012 @ 12:07 pm

As an update, we are announcing a raffle and auction of a print by Chris Muir featuring many of the titans of blogging. All proceeds go to the blogger’s defense fund.

Now that there’s a legimate looking organization handling the fundraising to fight these idiotic nuisance lawsuits, I’m down for $100.
I signed up for a gmail account and this paypal thing just so I could flip Aaron some cash, hopefully paypal will send the dough to the right place.

Good point, PCachu. That was my reaction too.
These folks are consistently backwards. The coopt and twist, no matter the situation. Some free speech advocates get together with a defense fund to protect someone from lawfare? The bad guys will use the term ‘defense fund’ to describe that very lawfare.
I guess I could complain about their dishonesty, but these are people who terrorize families with rape threats and pictures of homes. How do you condemn someone whose own actions condemn themselves?Dustin (73fead) — 9/4/2012 @ 6:19 pm

The guy has a pornographic ewok drawn in. Who thinks like that? Forget the politics, that’s some seriously deranged IP theft. Someone forward that to Lucas Licensing!
They don’t seem to have a public email but their publicity department would probably send it on to the right people.
