I just walked though my door 10 minutes ago after 4 whole hours of being off the net, had a call from a local candidate looking for info on a bill and when I opened the browser I on Instapundit that Aaron has been swatted not 12 hours after a stay had been granted to the gag order against him.
I hate to admit it but, my first thought wasn’t, “Is Aaron and his family OK?” My first thought in my mind was, “Are these people REALLY THIS STUPID?
You have had a letter sent to the Attorney General concerning SWATTING signed by over 80 member of congress. One week ago today I asked Congressman Charlie Bass and Senator Kelly Ayotte about SWATTING at a public forum. The MSM has finally given it a little coverage so there is attention and now not even 24 hours after Walker has won a preliminary injunction these guys SWATT HIM?
I’m sorry this is unbelievably stupid, so mindbogglingly idiotic that I can’t wrap my head around it. Is there really a follower of Brett Kimberlin & Co that is foolish enough to do this?
There is now a reason for each of the conservatives who signed that letter to be called for comment, there is also a reason for every other member of congress who DIDN’T sign it to be called for comment. I am going to be very busy tomorrow.
I’m no longer advising the SWATTER to turn states evidence, there is apparently no point in wasting good advice on such a dunderhead. Assuming the SWATTER isn’t Kimberlin himself or Rauhauser this person has to be a cult follower of the Nth degree.
I suspect anyone with connections to these idiots are doing what Nixon should have done to the tapes, and if they haven’t done it yet you’d better be sure they are going to because as of this moment the idiots are no longer useful.
Update: At Breitbart Stranahan gives some details:
Walker told Breitbart News that he was home with his wife this evening at approximately 6:00pm when there was a “pretty insistent” knock at his door. Walker answered to find about six police cars in the street and two officers taking positions against the wall with M4 rifles. Since he was aware of the previous swattings of Patrick “Patterico” Frey, Erick Erickson, and Mike Stack, Mr. Walker asked the police if someone had called and claimed he had killed his wife, and police confirmed that that was the case.
In a statement to Breitbart News, Walker said, “This is obviously very upsetting but my wife and I are fine. Whoever did this had the intent to put our lives in danger.”
Update 2: Aaron Walker/Worthing gives his first hand report here and note the reaction of his wife:
My wife came out a bit later and she appeared to be okay and I gave her a hug. She later told me when the officer woke her up, she said, the same phrase, “let me guess, someone called and said my husband shot me…” She says the cop was surprised that she wasn’t surprised.
The Key Line:
This was an act of desperation; this was not the act of people who feel they are winning.
So my reaction is naturally this:
Kimberlin and the left, same demoralization and I think we should have the same reaction.
