Kimberlin & Company Dreaming of a new Molly Norris

Hawk­eye: I’ve known Chin­gach­gook since we both were young. I knew Uncas’ mother. I’ve known Uncas since he was born. Major Hey­ward. I don’t know you. If we have to fight back to back, it’s pos­si­ble that you might run. I don’t think you will, but you might. I’ve fought back to back with these Mohi­cans father and son, and they didn’t run

Last of the Mohi­cans BBC 1972

draw-mohammedIf you are a long term reader of this blog or a long term lis­tener to my radio show you know the eas­i­est way to get me angry is to get me talk­ing about Molly Norris.

For those of you who don’t know Three years ago Molly Nor­ris was a car­toon­ist in Seat­tle whose work appeared reg­u­larly in the Seat­tle Weekly. Her style is not really the type I go for

After the cen­sor­ing of South Park Episodes by Com­edy Cen­tral over the inclu­sion of Moham­mad she pro­posed “Every­body Draw Moham­mad Day” in sol­i­dar­ity with the arti­est whose lives were in danger.

Oddly enough I was not a fan of Every­body Draws Moham­mad day

I have unabashedly declared Islamic killers as bar­bar­ians, I will con­tinue to do so. I have con­demned the cow­ardice of Com­edy Cen­tral. I don’t feel I have any­thing to prove. In addi­tion I don’t like car­i­ca­tures of Christ, Mary etc that are unflat­ter­ing. I want respect for my reli­gion there­fore I need to show that same respect. Free speech has to also include free­dom to not speak if you don’t want to.

There­fore I am not going to draw Mohammed on May 20th. If you think less of me because of that, so be it…

Imme­di­ately after­wards a FATWA was put upon her and the reac­tion of the “free speech” crowd that was con­stantly com­plain­ing about Bush, was…silence.

It did not end pretty:

You may have noticed that Molly Nor­ris’ comic is not in the paper this week. That’s because there is no more Molly

No she’s not dead

on the insis­tence of top secu­rity spe­cial­ists at the FBI, she is, as they put it, “going ghost”: mov­ing, chang­ing her name, and essen­tially wip­ing away her iden­tity. She will no longer be pub­lish­ing car­toons in our paper or in City Arts mag­a­zine, where she has been a reg­u­lar con­trib­u­tor. She is, in effect, being put into a witness-​protection pro­gram — except, as she notes, with­out the gov­ern­ment pick­ing up the tab. It’s all because of the appalling fatwa issued against her this sum­mer, fol­low­ing her infa­mous “Every­body Draw Mohammed Day” cartoon.

The anniver­sary of the fatwa on her passed and almost nobody noticed and three years later Morry Nor­ris is still in hiding.

An Amer­i­can Car­toon­ist, forced in hid­ing for exer­cis­ing her first amend­ment rights for nearly three years and nobody is object­ing, no con­gres­sional res­o­lu­tions, no speeches on the house floor and no sto­ries in the MSM. In my opin­ion this is a national disgrace.

Which brings us to Brett Kim­ber­lin & Co.

Lee Strana­han reports the following

A photo taken by Brett Kim­ber­lin on Fri­day, March 1st and quickly posted to the site Breibar­tUn­masked is the lat­est in a long series of attempts by con­victed felon Kim­ber­lin to attempt to stir up Mus­lim hatred towards blog­ger Aaron Walker, appar­ently as revenge against Mr. Walker for help­ing another blog­ger Kim­ber­lin has a long run­ning grudge against.

Walker’s crime: Par­tic­i­pat­ing in Every­one Draw Moham­mad day. Brett Kimberlin’s crew appar­ently takes a dim view of sup­port­ing the first amend­ment. Strana­han again:

The edi­tor of Bre­it­bar­tUn­masked is Kimberlin’s friend Bill Schmalfeldt, who has accus­ing Walker of hat­ing Mus­lims more than “he loves his wife”. The site also pub­lished a photo of Mr. Walker’s wife.

Mr. Schmalfeldt has also writ­ten thinly veiled threats to Mr. Walker, such as this one from a post enti­tled “Aaron Walker: A Cau­tion­ary Tale”:

In the mean­time, Aaron Walker sits in front of his spit-​flecked com­puter screen and blogs and tweets about the injus­tice of it all. But every­one knows he’s a dead man blog­ging — metaphorically.

This lat­est photo post by Brett Kim­ber­lin and Bill Schmalfeldt is trans­par­ently another fur­ther attempt to have free-​speech hat­ing lunatics to tar­get Walker.

Mind you the Kim­ber­lin crowd is not doing this because they object to some Mus­lims being cri­tiqued as mur­der­ous bar­bar­ian bas­tards who would kill or threaten a per­son who objects to Islamic threats. They are doing this specif­i­cally because they BELIEVE Mus­lims to be mur­der­ous bar­bar­ian bas­tards who will threaten or harm those who cri­tique them, in fact they’re count­ing on it!

One might call that racism. I call it a crime against the 1st amendment.

At the time the threats took place against Ms Nor­ris I said the fol­low­ing:

I’m not big into insult­ing other people’s reli­gions but this needs to be forcibly fought. As for a Fatwa, bring it on, We are AMER­I­CANS! If you come for one of us you come for ALL OF US! You want to kill me? So what! Every­body dies, but I’m not sur­ren­der­ing my 1st Amend­ment rights that have been given to me as a gift by thou­sands who fought to pre­serve them for an extra few days.

Let’s dou­ble down. My name is Peter Ingemi. My ances­tors came here from Sicily 100 years ago. I am an Amer­i­can and I defy you.

It’s a dis­grace that Amer­ica has for­got­ten Molly Nor­ris, it’s a big­ger dis­grace that she is still in hid­ing for her life due to Islamic extremists.

But the idea that Amer­i­cans would attempt to use the vio­lence of Rad­i­cal Islamists to sup­press their polit­i­cal ene­mies 1st Amend­ment rights is in my mind one of the most loath­some things I’ve seen.

And con­sider, even the deluded Islamic mur­derer acts because they think they are serv­ing God, Kim­ber­lin & Co are sim­ply serv­ing their polit­i­cal ends and what­ever mas­ters are pay­ing the bill.

Any per­son who would fight back to back with these men are fools.

I have unabashedly declared Islamic killers as barbarians, I will continue to do so. I have condemned the cowardice of Comedy Central. I don’t feel I have anything to prove. In addition I don’t like caricatures of Christ, Mary etc that are unflattering. I want respect for my religion therefore I need to show that same respect.

on the insistence of top security specialists at the FBI, she is, as they put it, “going ghost”: moving, changing her name, and essentially wiping away her identity. She will no longer be publishing cartoons in our paper or in City Arts magazine, where she has been a regular contributor. She is, in effect, being put into a witness-protection program—except, as she notes, without the government picking up the tab. It’s all because of the appalling fatwa issued against her this summer, following her infamous “Everybody Draw Mohammed Day” cartoon.

The anniversary of the fatwa on her passed and almost nobody noticed and three years later Morry Norris is still in hiding.

An American Cartoonist, forced in hiding for exercising her first amendment rights for nearly three years and nobody is objecting, no congressional resolutions, no speeches on the house floor and no stories in the MSM. In my opinion this is a national disgrace.

Which brings us to Brett Kimberlin & Co.

Lee Stranahan reports the following

A photo taken by Brett Kimberlin on Friday, March 1st and quickly posted to the site BreibartUnmasked is the latest in a long series of attempts by convicted felon Kimberlin to attempt to stir up Muslim hatred towards blogger Aaron Walker, apparently as revenge against Mr. Walker for helping another blogger Kimberlin has a long running grudge against.

Walker’s crime: Participating in Everyone Draw Mohammad day. Brett Kimberlin’s crew apparently takes a dim view of supporting the first amendment. Stranahan again:

The editor of BreitbartUnmasked is Kimberlin’s friend Bill Schmalfeldt, who has accusing Walker of hating Muslims more than “he loves his wife”. The site also published a photo of Mr. Walker’s wife.

Mr. Schmalfeldt has also written thinly veiled threats to Mr. Walker, such as this one from a post entitled “Aaron Walker: A Cautionary Tale”:

In the meantime, Aaron Walker sits in front of his spit-flecked computer screen and blogs and tweets about the injustice of it all. But everyone knows he’s a dead man blogging — metaphorically.

This latest photo post by Brett Kimberlin and Bill Schmalfeldt is transparently another further attempt to have free-speech hating lunatics to target Walker.

Mind you the Kimberlin crowd is not doing this because they object to some Muslims being critiqued as murderous barbarian bastards who would kill or threaten a person who objects to Islamic threats. They are doing this specifically because they BELIEVE Muslims to be murderous barbarian bastards who will threaten or harm those who critique them, in fact they’re counting on it!

One might call that racism. I call it a crime against the 1st amendment.

At the time the threats took place against Ms Norris I said the following:

I’m not big into insulting other people’s religions but this needs to be forcibly fought. As for a Fatwa, bring it on, We are AMERICANS! If you come for one of us you come for ALL OF US! You want to kill me? So what! Everybody dies, but I’m not surrendering my 1st Amendment rights that have been given to me as a gift by thousands who fought to preserve them for an extra few days.

Let’s double down. My name is Peter Ingemi. My ancestors came here from Sicily 100 years ago. I am an American and I defy you.

It’s a disgrace that America has forgotten Molly Norris, it’s a bigger disgrace that she is still in hiding for her life due to Islamic extremists.

But the idea that Americans would attempt to use the violence of Radical Islamists to suppress their political enemies 1st Amendment rights is in my mind one of the most loathsome things I’ve seen.

And consider, even the deluded Islamic murderer acts because they think they are serving God, Kimberlin & Co are simply serving their political ends and whatever masters are paying the bill.

Any person who would fight back to back with these men are fools.
