My family is being forced to move because of the recent intimidation tactics used against us. More on this soon...— Lee Stranahan (@stranahan) September 6, 2012
Former leftist activist Lee Stranahan has been on the front lines in the fight against stalker and terrorist Brett Kimberlin. He and his family have recently been the victims of nasty threats from Kimberlin supporters and violent leftists, and, no longer feeling safe in their home, they have decided to flee.

Over the weekend, Stranahan alerted police to one of the people making threats against him:
Leftist and self-described “liberal patriot” Bill Schmalfeldt, aka The Liberal Grouch, has been among the most vocal of those threatening Stranahan. Here’s just a brief sampling of his nastiness:

As Patterico documented, Schmalfeldt’s denial is patently false. Schmalfeldt insists that his threat was as innocuous as saying “good morning.” Not remotely. Moreover, he repeatedly endorses and proclaims his solidarity with Twitterer @OccupyRebellion, another notorious Kimberlin supporter. @OccupyRebellion sent out a tweet clearly threatening Stranahan’s wife:
After receiving repeated threats of this nature, Stranahan feels his only remaining option is to move his family away from their current home. Doing so will require extra financial help. Stranahan took to Twitter to ask his supporters for assistance:
And, naturally, the vilest of the vile used Stranahan’s financial hardships to mock him:
It’s utterly disgraceful. Thankfully, Stranahan is a far bigger man than all of his sick detractors combined, and he’s vowed to keep his head up and fight the good fight:
