Thanks to Glenn Reynolds  for reminding us of this 18 month old Fox News story about Brett Kimberlin .

” Even before his release from prison 10 years ago, Brett Kimberlin had learned a lesson that has served him well: If you publicly accuse a well-known political figure of crimes or misdeeds — even
without proof — publicity and money will follow.”

   ” Now, 22 years later, Kimberlin has taken that lesson and made unfounded accusations a profession of sorts. Using two popular leftist blogs, the 56-year-
old from Bethesda, Md., has raised
hundreds of thousands of dollars from the public and left-leaning foundations by promising to put conservatives he disagrees with in jail, often with offers of large rewards. So far — without success — he has called for the arrest of Karl Rove, Andrew Breitbart, Chamber
of Commerce head Tom Donohue,
Massey Energy Chairman Don
Blankenship and other high-profile
public figures. ”

Just another facet of the left’s strategy of intimidating into silence all dissent . It’s the “thirties” all over again . Is there a ” Kristallnacht ” in our future ?
