Just remember, the Right calls out, marginalizes, and rejects their “crazies.” The Right’s “crazies” are an anomaly. The Left embraces, defends, and supports their “crazies.”
Brandon Darby is a freedom fighter, a former leftist activist who went undercover for the FBI to bring down domestic terrorists who targeted the 2008 Republican National Convention. His background gives him exceptional insight into domestic terrorist Brett Kimberlin and the Left’s “well funded and organized shock troops whose goal is to destroy anyone who challenges their masters.”
The gist is that the people we call “far Left crazies” are actually very well organized and calculated and they operate on behalf of, with the support of, and to the benefit of more mainstream and moderate left-of-center political players.
This week conservatives on Twitter dealt with one of the crazies on the Right.
Brooks Bayne is a self-proclaimed Tea Party conservative and blogger whose anti-Semitic rants are the antithesis of conservatism. His foul-mouthed attacks on Jews, women and gays have only escalated since Twitchy first reported on his vile tweets.
Bayne has spent the last several several days waging jihad against Brandon Darby and others in the conservative Twittersphere who won’t parrot his every word about everything from the Obamacare ruling to the Kimberlin saga. His attacks are strikingly similar to some of the silencing tactics used by serial harasser Kimberlin and his band of thugs.
On Sunday, Bayne changed his Twitter avatar to an image of Riad Hamad, a radical Palestinian activist who killed himself during an FBI investigation Darby took part in.
And hey, look who else thinks Riad Hamad avatars are the bee’s knees.
@OccupyRebellion is an enthusiastic Kimberlin supporter who engages in vile Twitter attacks on anyone who dares to mention Kimberlin in a negative way.
In response to critics, Bayne offered some background information on Riad Hamad.
The article he linked was written by Lisa Fithian, a virulently anti-Israel agitator and influential Occupy Wall Street organizer.
But the harassment didn’t end there. In an echo of of the tactics used by Brett Kimberlin’s thug squad, Bayne posted Darby’s personal information on Twitter.
Bayne has repeatedly invoked the late Andrew Breitbart’s name to smear Darby and his radio co-host Lee Stranahan as “leftists.”
Breitbart.com’s Mandy Nagy reminds us of an October tweet from Andrew Breitbart:
Or as Bayne would call them, “snitches.”
Is all this the True Conservative™ way to treat a hero whose information helped foil a terrorist attack?
Naturally, conservatives on Twitter were thoroughly repulsed by Bayne’s despicable leftist attacks on Darby.
And Darby wasn’t the only one Bayne went after.
From intimidation to false accusations, the parallels between Brooks Bayne and Brett Kimberlin are screamingly obvious.
And the difference between Bayne and Darby could not be clearer.
Brett Kimberlin associate Neal Rauhauser has accused Brandon Darby of carrying out SWAT-ting attacks on bloggers. The National Bloggers Club announced today that Darby has its full support.
Brooks Bayne’s support? Not so much.
