I Have Amnesia

If so many other things in the entire interview hadn’t struck me as odd, seemingly incorrectly stated, or different from my recollections of previous statements, I’m sure I never would have noticed:

In this, the first portion of the Glenn Beck interview…

.

.

…Patrick Frey tells Glenn Beck that he’s been harassed by Brett Kimberlin, because he had written a post about Kimberlin. Then Pat agrees with Glenn they “can’t directly tie” Pat’s SWAT to Brett Kimberlin.  Pat goes on to describe the SWAT. Then Beck asks if Pat has ever seen anything like this before. Pat replies by saying “Yeah – it happened to another guy [@CryingWolfeBlog], who was writing about the same story I was writing, about a week earlier.”
.
Pretty sure Pat never mentions Weinergate at all to Beck’s audience – the entire interview is about Brett Kimberlin. Yet by Pat’s statement above, listeners are led by Pat to believe that @CryingWolfeBlog was SWAT-ed because he was writing about Brett Kimberlin. Only problem is – @CryingWolfeBlog was SWAT-ed because he was talking about Weinergate and trying to find out who set him up.

.

I don’t recall @CryingWolfeBlog writing about Brett Kimberlin before he was SWAT-ed.
(Honestly, I don’t remember @CryingWolfeBlog blogging about anything at all during that time frame.)
.
Should I head to the E.R.?

.

.

Still.

A commenter (coughtroll) at TheCryingWolfe asks of me: “Still?”,
regarding my previous comments:
.
I don’t believe you’re [Lee Stranahan] sincere at all throwing Ron’s name in there, because I’ve heard Ron’s voice too. And that’s why I know you’re full of shit on this one.
.
I’d bet any amount of money that’s not Ron; would have no prob betting my life on it.
.
The only reason I can see for falsely throwing Ron’s name in repeatedly, is to try to take focus away from the actual caller.
.
I mean DUH.

sorry if i sounded over-dramatic – I’m just sick of this subterfuge shit.
.
.
So, my answer to this commenter is:
.

I WILL SPEAK VERY SLOWLY SO YOU CAN UNDERSTAND ME
.
THE CALLER’S VOICE IS STILL THE CALLER’S VOICE
.
AND
.
RON’S VOICE IS STILL RON’S VOICE
.
THEREFORE
.
RON’S VOICE IS STILL NOT THE CALLER’S VOICE
.
I WOULD OF COURSE BE REMISS IF I DIDN’T SAY “DUH” HERE,
BUT SINCE YOU PROBABLY CAN’T HELP YOUR CRIPPLING MENTAL DEFICIENCY,

.
I WILL REFRAIN.

Twenty Questions

Posted in blogosphere, censorship, divisiveness, politics, sockypuppets, spin with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 25, 2012 by Qritiq

.

1. Why won’t Patterico reveal the truth about why he fired Aaron Worthing?

2. Why do some people continue to believe bloggers who pretend to be conservatives and are proven liars?

3. Why do some people continue to call Robert Stacy McCain a racist – is there a shred of evidence to indicate that?

4. Why did Aaron Worthing have to wait until the James O’Keefe emails were subpoenaed before posting his own story about #BrettKimberlin?

5. When you state a true fact – and someone who wants to hide that truth – broadcasts that you “support” someone that you obviously never supported – why does everyone pretend not to notice the liar’s obvious lie? (I previously wrote about this commonly used subterfuge tactic as it applied to Weinergate.)

6. About a day after another blog posted that Ron Brynaert had a “huge” amount of money, Aaron Worthing sent Brynaert a letter demanding 20K cash or he’d sue Brynaert for $66,000,000. Is the attorney that advised Aaron that this action was A-OK, trying to manipulate and use Aaron?

7. On a related note, I keep seeing @AaronWorthing state that @ronbryn is Brett Kimberlin’s “buddy”, “pal”, etc., which is a bold-faced lie. Why is it that people who claim to care about truth, never call Aaron out on it?

8. Since Aaron is known to have lied (see #7), can we trust the other things that he says?

9. Why did Herman Cain delete his facebook posting that was based on Robert Stacy McCain’s tale?

10. Why do some people become enraged when I point out that the timing of the social media anti-#BrettKimberlin campaign coincided with the subpoena of 7-years worth of James O’Keefe emails?

11. Do you think that Lie Stranahan actually believes that his caller, whom he said he believed was a jilted texter  (described as “dumb” by someone she spoke to at length) fabricated a phony California driver’s license (when she lives in Boston) as well as fake student id’s on short notice, told a stack of lies to the New York Times, impersonated at least two different real people, filed a phony police report, punked Tommy Christopher – Mike Stack  and the whole of the #BornFreeCrew, and for months scripted ALL the writings of DW – who was quite knowledgeable regarding nyc political reporting and Queens politics and issues (when “she”‘s “dumb” and from Boston), JR9 and many other socks including thousands of DM’s with GC (sorry if I left some stuff out)?

12. Who told Andrew Breitbart that Pat Frey had been SWAT-ed?

13. Why do some spend so much of their time bothering to argue with sockpuppets who consistently spout outrageous stuff that no-one believes?

14. I heard Andrew Breitbart’s last interview. His concerned and alarmed telling about his associate Pat’s SWAT seemed sincere to me, and he intimated that he (Breitbart) and his family could likely be the next to be terroristically targeted. Did the story about Pat’s SWAT, that Pat did nothing to clarify, contribute to Andrew’s stress level in the days leading up to March 1, 2012?

15. I’m told a judge clearly stated that Aaron had committed an assault. So why would some think there should not be a restraining order (that would serve to protect both parties) against Aaron – isn’t it better to be safe than sorry (I guess in the interim anyways, the ruling judge agreed with me)?

16. Did people Herman Cain trusted feed him disinformation?

17. Why are so many people being mean to @CryingWolfeBlog when it seems that, while he does defend himself against their attacks, he has never done anything to them?

18. Why was @ronbryn targeted from the get-go by those on the left AND on the right?

19. If you were trying to frame someone for a crime, and in doing so, you had to have an accomplice place a phone call during the time you were on the phone with your target, wouldn’t it make common logical sense and make it easier to coordinate the timing of your own call with his, if you told your accomplice to make his call “at midnight”, rather than at say 11:39 or 12:13?

20. How much money do you imagine has been spent all told, so far, on O’Keefe v Kimberlin?

.

.

Consider your answers, as this post will be opened up to comments in the near future.

    @cgseife say more than once that they were trying to catch you as elitist racist. If you don’t know, why do you say that at least twice?
