Breaking My Silence For Convicted Domestic Terror Bomber Brett Kimberlin Day

There is no need to go into details, as they are copiously explained in dozens of places around the Net today. However, I would like to point people towards this harrowing account on harassment and attempted intimidation directed towards Patrick Frey of Patterico fame.

At 12:35 a.m. on July 1, 2011, sheriff’s deputies pounded on my front door and rang my doorbell. They shouted for me to open the door and come out with my hands up.

When I opened the door, deputies pointed guns at me and ordered me to put my hands in the air. I had a cell phone in my hand. Fortunately, they did not mistake it for a gun.

They ordered me to turn around and put my hands behind my back. They handcuffed me. They shouted questions at me: IS THERE ANYONE ELSE IN THE HOUSE? and WHERE ARE THEY? and ARE THEY ALIVE?

I told them: Yes, my wife and my children are in the house. They’re upstairs in their bedrooms, sleeping. Of course they’re alive.

Deputies led me down the street to a patrol car parked about 2-3 houses away. At least one neighbor was watching out of her window as I was placed, handcuffed, in the back of the patrol car. I saw numerous patrol cars on my quiet street. There was a police helicopter flying overhead, shining a spotlight down on us as I walked towards the patrol car. Several neighbors later told us the helicopter woke them up. I saw a fire engine and an ambulance. A neighbor later told me they had a HazMat vehicle out on the street as well.

Meanwhile, police rushed into my home. They woke up my wife, led her downstairs and to the front porch, frisked her, and asked her where the children were. Then police ordered her to stand on the front porch with her hands against the wall while they entered my children’s bedrooms to make sure they were alive.

The call that sent deputies to my home was a hoax. Someone had pretended to be me. They called the police to say I had shot my wife. The sheriff’s deputies who arrived at my front door believed they were about to confront an armed man who had just shot his wife. I don’t blame the police for any of their actions. But I blame the person who made the call.

Because I could have been killed.
Pat is a friend of a friend, has been incredibly nice and generous to me and my little blog over the years, and has fantastic taste in music. It is a damn shame he was to deal with these kinds of lunatics. Its also a damn shame that so many on the Left, after they hear about this situation, have taken the side of the lunatics because they disagree with Pat's politics. It is unconscionable, but, sadly, par for the course these days.

The Liberal Mind In Action

It goes something like this....

"Those people in North Carolina are sooooooooo prejudiced. It must be because they are inbred hillbillies."

....and they go on and feel wonderful about themselves all the live long day because they are so enlightened and tolerant and stuff.

The Chronicle of Higher Education And Fascism

Well, the cyber brown shirts were out in force over an opinion piece written by Naomi Schaefer Riley suggesting that black-studies programs were a bastion of "political partisanship and liberal hackery." Granted, you would have to be a braindead moron to not realize the truthfulness of such an opinion, but that hasn't stopped The Chronicle from firing Riley because she offended moronic political partisans and moronic liberal hacks.

This will be the last time I ever read, comment or link to anything in The Chronicle. They have violated the basic principles of a liberal society. In fact they have thrown their lot in with the brown shirts and have announced they will deem entire blocks of the American political tradition, such as Republicanism and conservatism, as anathema. They are goosestepping against freedom and I will have nothing to do with them.
