Do the people at the Tides Foundation, Barbra Streisand Foundation, and Heinz Family Foundation know that they have given money to an organization run by a litigious, violent, radical felon who appears to delight in intimidating people whose views he disagrees with?Some of the harassment had the potential to become fatal. Patterico tells of his experience of being SWATted: someone making a false police report, claiming that someone is armed and dangerous, giving the victim's home address and causing an armed SWAT team to storm the house. In a highly charged situation such as that, it would be very easy for an object to be mistaken for a gun and deadly force to be employed...all because someone didn't like what you were saying! Convicted Bomber Brett Kimberlin, Neal Rauhauser, Ron Brynaert, and Their Campaign of Political Terrorism The story is quite lengthy and convoluted. The Lonely Conservative has a good piece here: Speedway Bomber Brett Kimberlin Poked a Bees Nest Stacy McCain has a number of updates, a few of them here: Domestic Terrorist Now Using ‘Lawfare’? Convicted Felon Kimberlin’s 501(c)3 Raised $1.8 Million in Six Years UPDATE: ‘Convicted of Perjury’ ,Lying Felon Can’t Stop Lying, and here KimberlinFiles.Org. If you weren't familiar with this name before today, I suspect you will be soon. Many conservative bloggers have banded together to expose the malice and abuse of this individual and his fellow travelers. Who knows? Maybe even the MSM will deem to take notice? Nah. What was I thinking?

Wow. That's a bit drastic, no? So I started reading about this guy Kimberlin, and my first thought was, Why isn't this guy still in jail? And second, why are all those rich liberals giving him so much money? Convicted Terrorist Brett Kimberlin Received $70,000 From Tides Foundation, $10,000 From Streisand, $20,000 from John Kerry’s Wife What is up with liberals, domestic terrorists and death? Bill Ayers made bombs. The lovely Bernadette Dohrn lauded the Manson family when they murdered the pregnant Sharon Tate. Mumia Abu-Jamal killed a police office and became a darling of the left, Brett Kimberlin, known as the "Speedway Bomber", terrorized a town in Indiana in the late seventies, left a trail of death and destruction in his wake, and liberals can't wait to give them their money? But, it gets worse. It seems that Mr. Kimberlin has a problem with free speech. Not in general, but anyone who has the audacity to criticize him, or the temerity to bring up his somewhat sordid past, is subject to all manner of harassment. Matthew Vadum puts it succinctly:
