Sadistic Cybersmearing and the Roots of Blogging Fascism
internet predator Neal Rauhauser
It's the height of ignorance to believe fascism rose in the 30s and 40s because of a few evil men. According to Wilhelm Reich, it is the social-psychology of masses of people which forms the bedrock of totalitarianism. That is probably close to a word for word quote from him. I'm too lazy to check.
Except for newbies and fence-sitters, internet progressives have known for a long time that The Daily Kos and other so-called leftist outlets have been nothing other than bald-faced attempts at hijacking liberalism as a brand name.
In June 2011, sadistic blogger Neal Rauhauser penned Bringing Breitbart (And Thomas) To Justice (Action Alert!).
There he utilised the standard model for an internet hoax, one so many before have used. Jason Leopold was perhaps the most infamous for his Karl Rove indictment hoax. Speedway Bomber Brett Kimberlin, yellow rag journalist Brad Friedman, and another unhinged, self-proclaimed journalist named Larisa Alexandrovna wet themselves with what I have coined as the Michael Connell Threatened by Karl Rove hoax.
The internet is a lot like driving. When we first hit the road, we are like, "This is wicked awesome, dude." Yet as the years pass, we see enough traffic, aggressive driving, and flipped birds to say, "This sucks." It's the same with the internet. At first, we're like, "Yay, what a wondrous thing." Then soon enough we notice there is convolution to the yin-yang; And that it's not just at the obviously nutty places.
Most people whether on the right, left, or in the middle want us to be the best America we can be. Sure, at first it's kinda swell to read heated exchanges between libtards and repukelicans. Even some of those preaching to the choir threads can hit the spot. Yet, those are rare occurences. By their intrinsic nature, such dialogues can only go so far.
Personally, I believe the most trippy fun to be had with intercourse is when everyone is a good jake and actually treats others with respect. I'm old-school like that. Raised in academia, I was enthralled by a system in which we were expected to research, reflect, and share our schticks with other like-minded thinkers. The narrower the subject area, the easier it was to get places.
So there you have it. We have libtards, repukelicans, and the open-minded. Oopsies. There's another category. They were mentioned earlier in this diary. There is a form of internet cretin, who while promoting him or herself as an activist and God's gift to the blogosphere, is actually a self-promoting schemer. Such people tend to have much success at first due to cynically understanding how easy it is to prey on human nature.
Heck, I've fallen for it myself. I believed in Brad Friedman. I didn't consider that he might have been talking out of his ass concerning Clint Curtis with his assassinated dog, Dieb-Throat, and other nonsense he's been involved in since late 2004.
In the above DKos link, a few things immediately came to mind which are formulaic in its preaching to the choir mentality. For each DKos diary, the first post is a tip jar, where the masses declare a thumbs up or down for the entry. Here's how the voting went for Neal Rauhauser aka Stranded Wind.
At this point, we know DKos is rigged for moderating. But 577 to 0? The Harlem Globetrotters never did that well against the overmatched Washington Generals.
Now what I don't get is this. Why if Rauhauser had done such an effective job planting the Team Breitbart scam did he not realise that subtlety is our best friend? Clearly he now has no credibility left, not a shred. So why not simply plant the seed? Why did he go over the edge, continue smearing innocent people, and post so much garbage with zero proof?
Also take note of his so-called exhibits proving porn expert goatsred was the Goebbels of Weinergate to Andew Breitbart's Hitler.
I counted six of those. Did any of the 577 numbnuts voting thumbs up for Neals "article" consider that they might have been fed a hoax? Obviously not. And we now know for sure how contrarian muckrakers end up at disinfo palaces such as Daily Kos and Democratic Underground. They receive the banhammer.
Anyone ever hear of Annette Appollo, Dave Weintraub, Francis Holland, or socrates/Prepostericity (me)?
(See Annette Appollo: Death by Internet.)
What I'd also like to know is whether there is proof that Neal Rauhauser and Brett Kimberlin work together. On the surface, this is apparently true. Indictbreitbart.org is yet another Velvet Revolution donation project. Rauhauser promoted that group in his above diary. The following was also apparently posted by Neal Rauhauser.
Hmmm. Was Neal telling the truth when he wrote that Kimberlin is his client? I don't know.
I was arrested. The prosecutor knew it was nonsense and told a judge nolle prosequi, which to paraphrase means, "Get this bullshite out of me kisser."
Brett Kimberlin is a notorious jailhouse attorney who has been bullying me with court proceedings for about a year. He "lost" his case on November 14th but will still not let it go. He is currently attempting to have me imprisoned for contempt of court.
Maryland Judge Ricky Boy Jordan ordered that I not defame nor interfere with the Speedway Bomber's business interests. There was never any permanent injunction made that I cannot legally blog on the case or anything else having to do with Brett Kimberlin or associates of his such as Brad Friedman of the BradBlog concerning provable dispensation of convolution.
I made a mistake. I admit it. I was frantically trying to get funds together to make a trip down to Maryland. I had been in a depressed cave for many months. During most of this last year, I no longer cared. I blogged much less than ever before and even went to youtube to carve a nice little niche with this movie channel.
I was one of the last to find out I had been getting my arse cybersmeared by Neal Rauhauser at Daily Kos. Patterico, an Asst. D.A. from Los Angeles, tried his best to wake me up from my dogmatic man cave slumber. I almost woke up in time to prevent a default judgement. But my car was on the shelf. Attorneys wanted 40-50 grand to represent. I tried to find pro bono help but failed.
During I believe sometime in August, not sure because I am no good at remembering dates, in the midst of plenty o'emails back and forth with Patterico, Liberty Chick, and one including Aaron Worthing, I slipped in a sentence based on frustration. I thought I had phrased it well enough for it not to be construed as a death threat. I said something like maybe I should [you know what] Kimberlin to get some justice. It was a bad joke. I didn't flesh it out enough. The point of the failed joke was supposed to be that spending years in prison for killing the deluded Speedway Bomber would not have been justice. I was simply frustrated at not having the funds to get that frivolous, insane lawsuit dismissed.
The lovely and talented Liberty Chick didn't know me well at the time and ratted me out. Somehow I wasn't mad at her for doing so. Nonetheless, I didn't like being arrested and treated like dirt for well over 24 hours by the Maryland criminal justice system. That's a whole other ball of wax.
I will add that Liberty Chick did a splendid job helping me come up with a defense for the damages hearing. That the judgement was only $100 for a $2.25 million claim kinda sorta tells who really won. Omg, people must check out the Nov. 14th audio. Yay!!!!! Lol, I wrote omg and yay in a blog post. p:>
On Sept. 14th, Fatf***face set it up so we would have a damages hearing for November 14th. I am still awaiting the audio from that final hearing. Kimberlin clearly slandered me. Not only that, I got him to commit perjury on cross-examination. Hence, this is why I have become the toast of the internet and hailed by many as a modern day, civilian Perry Mason. I would not be surprised if Speedy and/or Rauhauser are arrested for activities conducted in relation to myself.
Some jackass (Hmmm, I wonder who that could be?) illegally posted my driver's license picture and court audio from the Sept. 14th hearing. The bottom line is since I hadn't made any actual or even direct death threat, the Maryland criminal justice system had no right to arrest me. I wouldn't have been if not for actions undertaken by serial fabulist Brett Coleman Kimberlin.
The holding cell was stuffy. They threw about eight of us into one man cells. There were tons of other cells, but those were used by the fat pigs as offices. I was given no food and subjected to sleep deprivation for approximately 16 hours.
Oh my, Kimberlin is asking for trouble from Maryland authorities once they become aware of the racket he's been peddling concerning myself. On November 14th, he denied setting the bombs in Speedway Indiana and claimed exoneration, but that due to some agreement with authorities details cannot be discussed. That's what I think I heard. I want that audio to confirm!
Judge Jordan, the former ambulance chaser, didn't stop for one second and consider that Kimberlin had just perjured himself. Even at the end, Jordan was still kissing Kimberlin's ass despite a mountain of bullshit that had been exposed by myself as lies. This is why I called him FatF***Face without asterisks in the day or two after returning to Massachusetts once the damages hearing had concluded.
Since becoming aware of being an introvert on November 17th, I no longer am prone to such crass behaviour. Thus the asterisks are now in place. p:>
Anyway, once I get that audio I'm gonna write a lot more about that November 14th hearing. Bet on it. And if any of ye come across that driver's license picture, please be aware that I had no clue it would later be plastered on the net by sadistic thugs. Otherwise, I would have dolled myself up for the occasion.
Lately I have been thinking of coming out with my real name and photos. Then ye will know how cute and charming I actually am.
Ok, I guess I better wrap up this post. Before doing so, I would like to add a few links that Neal Rauhauser doesn't want people to see. He posted them on a website called Open Left. If one tries to access them now, they will run into an "oopsie this page doesn't exist anymore" schtick.
Thanks to the internet gods, we have the wayback machine.

Here's the main reason Neal's dumbass hoax fell apart. If he had written less and quit while he was ahead, it wouldn't have been so easy to figure out there is no actual Team Breitbart. As a pure leftier than thou, I did not fit so easily into his script.
I was posting on Speedway Bomber Brett Kimberlin and Brad Friedman of BradBlog well before Liberty Chick and Patterico heard of their part and parcel connection to internet convolution. A year ago around approximately October, Liberty Chick came up with her fantastic piece on Velvet Revolution. She had basically stumbled onto the story. While researching a band, she came across Kimberlin's Justice Through Music. With a bit of web surfing, she was all of a sudden asking wtf.
Patterico teased her story. I emailed him. Months passed, blah, blahg, blogger, now we are in the present. And ain't payback a bitch?
Was Neal Rauhauser the notorious Dan Wolfe persona who helped bring down Anthony Weiner? I wouldn't bet against it. Cui bono? Who published two now scrubbed diaries at Open Left admitting to being into those kinds of cybersmearing endeavours?
Yet unlike internet predator Neal Rauhauser, I don't transform opinion or in his case lies into proven facts. There are two specific dumbf*** fat faces who need to immediately stfu and stop harassing innocent Americans, or the chickens (authorities) are gonna come home to roost on their soiled, sadistic, and deluded spirits.
