Brooks Bayne targets conservatives with Brett Kimberlin-style tactics

http://twitter.com/#!/Stranahan/status/219612344114880512

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

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.

To get a sense of the full extent of the potentially deadly tactics associated with these “far Left crazies,” read Patterico’s posts on the anniversary of his SWAT-ting experience here and here.

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.

I'm confused. Isn't @brooksbayne part of #BrettKimberlin's cabal? Sounds like it. I *do* know dude ain't got a clue on Conservativism. #tcot

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.

Go look at the profile for @BrooksBayne and you'll see the picture that I've screencapped and included in this tweet. pic.twitter.com/4UWDvOy2

— Lee Stranahan (@stranahan) July 2, 2012

Brooks Bayne changed his avi to Riad Hamad, the Palestinian terror funder who killed himself in one of my FBI investigations. #scum

— Brandon Darby (@brandondarby) July 2, 2012

The use of that picture by @BrooksBayne is a DIRECT ATTACK on @BrandonDarby for his work with the FBI. And it's a LEFTIST attack.

— Lee Stranahan (@stranahan) July 2, 2012

. @brooksbayne supports terrorist Riad Hamad who killed himself after @brandondarby turned him into FBI for plotting 2 kill Israeli babies

— Katie Pavlich (@KatiePavlich) July 2, 2012

I'm sure glad @brandondarby told the FBI about Riad Hamad before he funneled $$ to terrorists to blow up innocent Israeli babies

— Katie Pavlich (@KatiePavlich) July 2, 2012

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.

Since Brooks Bayne is now literally repeating OccupyRebellion's attacks on @brandondarby, makes me wonder who's REALLY running that account.

— Mandy Nagy (@Liberty_Chick) July 2, 2012

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.

Congratulations @brooksbayne you are now upholding Lisa Fithian, the leader of the Occupy Movement she's also an anti-Israeli activist

— Katie Pavlich (@KatiePavlich) July 2, 2012

Considering Lisa Fithian hates Israel and Jews, it is no wonder @brooksbayne likes her smear work

— Katie Pavlich (@KatiePavlich) July 2, 2012

@Stranahan @Liberty_Chick Seriously? @BrooksBayne is pointing people to Fithian (terrorist) for facts about @BrandonDarby ? He's gone psycho

— Mouth of Matuszak (@pavelgregory) July 2, 2012

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.

Yes, @brooksbayne published my cell number.

— Brandon Darby (@brandondarby) July 2, 2012

So — did @BrooksBayne published @BrandonDarby phone number unredacted with Brandon's permission to try and help people?

— Lee Stranahan (@stranahan) July 2, 2012

Attn @twitter @support, this violates your TOS, does it not? What a jerk. RT @brandondarby: Yes, @brooksbayne published my cell number.

— Sarah Rumpf (@rumpfshaker) July 2, 2012

Bayne has repeatedly invoked the late Andrew Breitbart’s name to smear Darby and his radio co-host Lee Stranahan as “leftists.”

https://twitter.com/brooksbayne/status/219154877107023874

https://twitter.com/brooksbayne/status/219174184654340096

I was actually at the panel where Brooks says Breitbart was calling @stranahan and @brandondarby leftists. Video is out of context

— Greg B (@gregb94) June 30, 2012

Breitbart.com’s Mandy Nagy reminds us of an October tweet from Andrew Breitbart:

Please support & defend FBI informants – like @brandondarby – who put lives on line to protect U.S. – as evidenced by this Iranian plot.

— AndrewBreitbart (@AndrewBreitbart) October 11, 2011

Or as Bayne would call them, “snitches.”

Wow. Just wow. @BrooksBayne calls @brandondarby a 'snitch' and questions whether @AdamSBaldwin is a conservative

— Lee Stranahan (@stranahan) June 30, 2012

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.

https://twitter.com/jstrevino/status/219607889210388480

I thought @brooksbayne's anti-semetic rants were just lost temper, but a terrorist avi, referencing anarchists, & attacking Cons? Sick.

— Tim Wells (@RoninNerd) July 2, 2012

The only way @brooksbayne could dislike @brandondarby more is if Darby were Jewish.

— Kevin Eder (@keder) July 2, 2012

Amazingly if you dare defend @brandondarby you are likely to see your timeline polluted by this charlatan: http://t.co/yQ2RSRFd

— Erick Erickson (@EWErickson) July 2, 2012

@keder @BrandonDarby has also achieved a lot of useful things, at risk to himself. @BrooksBayne has…um…yeah…

— Nathan Wurtzel (@NathanWurtzel) July 2, 2012

And Darby wasn’t the only one Bayne went after.

For the record, @BrooksBayne just threatened to "out" me via email.

— RB (@RBPundit) July 2, 2012

Here's @BrooksBayne via email: "maybe we should find out why you hide behind a nym. sound fun? you wanna keep taking shots at me? so be it"

— RB (@RBPundit) July 2, 2012

Go ahead, @BrooksBayne. Give the left ammo to come after my livelihood and hurt my family. It still won't make you less of an asswipe.

— RB (@RBPundit) July 2, 2012

It's really worth pondering why vile woman-hating @BrooksBayne would attack free speech heroes @AaronWorthing & @Liberty_Chick

— Lee Stranahan (@stranahan) June 28, 2012

Between leftie accts mocking @liberty_Chick for being a rape victim and @brooksbayne attacking her, I'm gonna go ahead and defend her.

— Brandon Darby (@brandondarby) June 28, 2012

.@brooksbayne is attacking @liberty_Chick (Mandy Nagy) using Andrew as a weapon. Andrew loved Mandy, Brooks is wrong. That's dirty.

— Brandon Darby (@brandondarby) June 28, 2012

In @brooksbayne world, not being into @brooksbayne = "lesbian" #butyouknewthat RT @brooksbayne: noted: hispanic lesbians don't like the nyt.

— Frances Martel (@francesmartel) June 2, 2012

I couldn't even fit all the conservatives that Brooksbayne has attacked in 10 tweets full of #FF 's, but they all deserve follows.

— AG (@AG_Conservative) July 2, 2012

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.

. @brandondarby saved Israeli lives, @brooksbayne supports Israelis being killed by upholding terrorist Riad Hamad

— Katie Pavlich (@KatiePavlich) July 2, 2012

Seems like @brandondarby & @stranahan piss off all the right people. Makes me respect them even more.

— jon gabriel (@exjon) July 2, 2012

UPDATE:

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.
