National Bloggers Club president targeted by Brett Kimberlin supporters; National Day of Blogger Silence planned for Friday


Supporters of convicted bomber and online terrorist Brett Kimberlin have gone after another conservative activist and his family with their anti-free speech thuggery.

Ali Akbar is the president of the National Bloggers Club, the group that organized the fund to support Kimberlin’s targets. He reported the attack on Twitter this afternoon.

There is so much I want to say but that's what Kimberlin's folks want. Im on the phone with every lawyer and cop I know trying to stop this.

I am. RT @soetorosux: @TwitchyTeam @ali call FBI…seriously

— Ali A. Akbar (@ali) June 4, 2012

I'm in touch with @ali. He's fine.I advised him to stop tweeting for a while until he cools off. So, it will be a bit before he tweets more.

Twitchy has confirmed that a suspected Kimberlin associate used online intimidation tactics to target Ali and at least one member of his family. Attempts have been made to access sensitive information about his family members and to hack his personal Twitter account and multiple National Bloggers Club accounts.

But instead of retreating as these serial harassers intended, he’s reloading:

And for the record Brett and Neal, I'm doubling down my support for Aaron and committing everything I have to getting charges filed.

The conservative Twittersphere has his back.

.@ali For the record if you sue these guys, set up a fund. I would be delighted to promote it & encourage people to pour in money

— John Hawkins (@johnhawkinsrwn) June 4, 2012

They went after @Ali. Shit just got real, y'all.

@ali Stay strong. Fight back.

Last month Michelle Malkin wrote:

For conservatives online, it is also a time-tested truism that there is great strength in numbers. When bloggers, activists, video content creators, and Twitter users on the Right unite behind common principles — fighting jihadi propaganda, exposing corruption, calling out media bias, following the progressive money trail, holding the Republican Party’s feet to the fire, etc. — we can accomplish uncommon things.

It’s time to use our combined strength to put an end to this harassment before these thugs get someone killed.

Please donate what you can to support Kimberlin’s targets.

Ace is asking bloggers to join him in a National Day of Blogger Silence this Friday.

On Friday, this site will be absolutely dead-silent, which is what Brett Kimberlin and his stalker crew seeks, and what the media and our supposed Representatives in Congress would permit.

The only post on Friday will be a bold-faced Open Letter to Congress, urging them to act and not attempt to pass the buck to others.

National Blogger Silence Day: On friday, I will not blog anything. I will be silent, as the enemies of free speech desire, and…

..the supposed protectors of free speech support.

— iLoveScienceSexually (@AceofSpadesHQ) June 4, 2012

On Friday, I will post nothing but a bold faced open letter to congress, calling them out for inaction while citizens are victimied.

— iLoveScienceSexually (@AceofSpadesHQ) June 4, 2012

And I will ask — beg — every concerned citizen to write/call Congress. I will include links for their information.

— iLoveScienceSexually (@AceofSpadesHQ) June 4, 2012

I am hoping that this time our silence — and our statement that this is a non-negotiable concern, in which life and liveliood are at risk..

— iLoveScienceSexually (@AceofSpadesHQ) June 4, 2012

…will finally spur Congress to act. This is SERIOUS, and we are SERIOUS. This is not blogwar shit.

— iLoveScienceSexually (@AceofSpadesHQ) June 4, 2012

Please RT if you'll join me, and please RT if you'd like to put out the word.
