A photo taken by Brett Kimberlin on Friday, March 1st and quickly posted to the site BreibartUnmasked is the latest in a long series of attempts by convicted felon Kimberlin to attempt to stir up Muslim hatred towards blogger Aaron Walker, apparently as revenge against Mr. Walker for helping another blogger Kimberlin has a long running grudge against.
Walker has written extensively about Kimberlin’s long term harassment of him on his blog Allergic To Bull, which remains the best resource for understand the lengths that Kinberlin has gone to in order to threaten, intimidate and humiliate Mr. Walker.
As part of their campaign of revenge on Mr. Walker, Kimberlin and his associates have repeatedly accused Mr. Walker of hating Muslims and have tried to stir up Muslim resentment toward Walker across the internet for the bravery he showed in participating in an online free speech protest.
Everybody Draw Mohammed Day was an event held on May 20, 2010 in support of free speech and freedom of artistic expression of those threatened with violence for drawing representations of the Islamic Prophet Muhammad. It began as a protest against censorship of an American television show, South Park, “201” by its distributor, Comedy Central, in response to death threats against some of those responsible for two segments broadcast in April 2010. Observance of the day began with a drawing posted on the Internet on April 20, 2010, accompanied by text suggesting that “everybody” create a drawing representing Muhammad, on May 20, 2010, as a protest against efforts to limit freedom of speech.
Kimberlin used Walker’s participation as way to attempt to create Muslim resentment towards Walker. Walker–who used a pseudonym to avoid a potentially violent backlash—has his name outed after efforts by Kimberlin to reveal it. Kimberlin then contacted law enforcement as well as Walker’s employer, which directly resulted in Walker and his wife losing their jobs.
The editor of BreitbartUnmasked is Kimberlin’s friend Bill Schmalfeldt, who has accusing Walker of hating Muslims more than “he loves his wife”. The site also published a photo of Mr. Walker’s wife.
Mr. Schmalfeldt has also written thinly veiled threats to Mr. Walker, such as this one from a post entitled “Aaron Walker: A Cautionary Tale”:
In the meantime, Aaron Walker sits in front of his spit-flecked computer screen and blogs and tweets about the injustice of it all. But everyone knows he’s a dead man blogging — metaphorically.
This latest photo post by Brett Kimberlin and Bill Schmalfeldt is transparently another further attempt to have free-speech hating lunatics to target Walker.
