Why Is Fidelity Investments Are People With Accounts at Fidelity and Schwab Giving Money to the Speedway Bomber?

by Little Miss Attila on May 23, 2012

And why do the mainstream media continue to ignore this Cape Fear-like story?

Convicted domestic terrorist and compulsive liar Brett Kimberlin has been attacking those who expose his past—using “lawfare,” veiled threats of violence, and the targeting of people’s livelihoods. His most prominent victims in the past few years have been Aaron Worthing and his family, Patterico and his family, and Robert Stacy McCain—and his family. Yes: the men’s families have been targeted for their temerity in speaking up. This is evil.

Most of Kimberlin’s victims have been “right-wingers,” but not all. So while it probably falls to those of us on the right to ask some awkward questions of those who financially contribute to Kimberlin’s front organizations—Justice Through Music and Velvet Revolution—there is a less-political dimension to this story that has to do with simple human decency and the rule of law.

Normal political discourse doesn’t include filing false criminal charges against people, or getting them fired from their jobs. It doesn’t include legal harrassment, or veiled threats of actual violence. These are the weapons that are employed by Brett Kimberlin, and they should remain outside the realm of public debate on policy issues.

Protecting those who have spoken up is paramount, and the only way to do that is to turn this into a mass movement, such that it is impossible for the entire “Army of Davids” to be threatened, even by a pathological individual with lots of time on his hands.

I also want to see Barbra Streisand, Teresa Heinz, the Tides Foundation, and Fidelity Investments questioned on why they are subsidizing the nexus of evil that surrounds Brad Friedman, Neal Rausauher, and Brett Kimberlin.

Were these organizations and individuals really throwing their weight behind legal harrassment and physical threats? They have some questions to answer—as does Montgomery County, Maryland (see the conclusion to Aaron Worthing’s post, linked above).

For more, see Michelle Malkin, Ladd Ehlinger, and Ed Morrissey. The Memeorandum thread is here.

UPDATE: Ace discusses Kimberlin and how society should fight against his brand of “lawfare.”

UPDATE II: The people at Breitbart have the skinny: the “Fidelity” money comes from “donor-advised funds,” which essentially means that this is a legal way for individuals and groups to hide their donations to this evil man’s enterprises.

The way this should be fought is by enforcement of RICO statutes against these people AND their donors/enablers.

This is the same as the Mafia protection rackets. It should be dealt with in the same manner.

Maybe it’s because I’m one of those fire signs, but I say, fight lawfare with lawfare. Anyone need a lawyer more than willing to respond to this b.s., then throw RICO, defamation, harassment, intentional infliction of emotional distress, and, for fun, any other claim that might be found upon randomly opening Black’s Law Dictionary, at the guy? ‘Cuz that’s my idea of a good time.

(Maybe I need to get out more….)
