Stalking the Blogosphere: BlogBurst Friday, Free Speech Over Terrorism
Teresa Monroe-Hamilton says in this post:
“In the 11 years I have been blogging, I have had numerous death threats. But they are nothing compared to what Stacey McCain at The Other McCain is going through. I have watched good friends like Michelle Malkin and other bloggers be threatened, stalked and terrorized mercilessly by the left. They have had to move multiple times, hire private security and fear for their lives and their families simply because they dared to speak the truth and fight back against Progressives. The bloggers I know are the bravest people out there and I am proud to call them friends. Being a high-profile blogger in America these days is to have a very large target on your back at all times – I have had numerous death threats, stalkers, hacks to my site and denial of service attacks. You never know what will happen next. But for those who care more for their country than their own lives, bloggers gladly walk the edge every single day with little notice, lots of scorn and risk to personal life and limb. They suffer through troll attacks, their servers being hacked (with the expense of combating that), spam and of course, death threats. Just ask S.E. Cupp. I have never seen such a wonderful person treated so horrifically. It’s barbaric and criminal.”
I am, myself a blogger on a smaller scale, yet have suffered attacks from trolls that have included hacking and hijacking my FB page. The comments I delete on this blog are at times obscene. The comments I eventually deleted on my page were pure, unadulterated evil. Why such effort and expense to shut up conservative bloggers? Why even spend time on little old me?

“Kimberlin is a known associate of Neal Rauhauser, a Democrat campaign consultant who has described himself as a computer “hacker.” Kimberlin, director of the tax-exempt Justice Through Music Project, is also involved in another tax-exempt group, Velvet Revolution, which has gained national attention by demanding criminal prosecution of high-profile figures including Republican strategist Karl Rove, U.S. Chamber of Commerce president Tom Donohue, and the late Internet news entrepreneur Andrew Breitbart. Kimberlin’s name also surfaced last year in connection with the so-called “Anonymous” international hacker conspiracy. Kimberlin has pursued numerous strategies to harass journalists and bloggers who have attempted to call attention to his criminal past and his notorious dishonesty — a “top-flight con man,” as Publisher’s Weekly called him in a review of award-winning journalist Mark Singer’s 1996 book, Citizen K: The Deeply Weird American Journey of Brett Kimberlin.”
A Call to action:
This Friday, May the 25th, is BlogBurst Friday for Free Speech: “Everybody Blog About Brett Kimberlin Day.” If you have never been involved in a BlogBurst, they carry a stunning impact when enough of us get together and say with one voice, ‘Enough!’ Please Tweet, Facebook, email and post on Friday for this cause. It affects all of us and a movement has formed to build a defense fund and structure to support bloggers in the face of persecution of all forms. This needs to go far and wide and get to the major media outlets. Tell everyone – we may disagree on various issues, but we all agree on this one. Terrorism of all forms must be stopped. No one should have to be in fear for their life or the lives of their loved ones for blogging. No one.
