In a repeat showing of hubris, King Shit of Turd Island himself – Ian Bernard – tried the old-fashioned ambush interview on libertarian-leaning Republican candidate Rand Paul during a campaign stop at Lindy’s Diner. Lindy’s is a popular spot for stumping politicians to glad-hand locals with the most recent being from Hilary Clinton. Bernard’s attempt to insert himself into the scene met with a brush-off and the consternation/mocking of his peers. Why the FSP hasn’t jettisoned such an arrogant and poisonous shithead is beyond the scope of this blog but you can still enjoy a bit of schadenfreude via the screenshots below!
Cop Block’s favorite parking lot commando pedaled his Huffy over to the 8th Circuit Court on the 25th to contest custody of his children with a former partner. SFK makes it a point to appear at all FK-related court hearings and had a few members show up to sit in and take note of any information relevant to our activities. Matt was not happy about this and judging from today’s Keene Cop Block missive he blames SFK for his lackluster court performance:
Some Protips, Matt:
1. If you’re going to pose as your live-in girlfriend then try harder to hide the misspellings, grammtical errors, and incorrect use of capitalization that are the trademarks of a JP Centurion shit-post. Especially when you have “her” refer to herself in the third-person while doing all the above, dumbass. This kind of blatant falsehood would be insulting to my intelligence if I didn’t find it so useful an example of the kind of dishonest sacks of shit Ian Bernard rolls with.
2. Your involvement with FK and it’s activities is nothing to brag about and should give the judge reason to bar you from even coming within 500 feet of a child. But that’s none of my business.
3. SFK appears at all FK-related legal proceedings when possible to take notes and make our presence felt. The nature of your case is irrelevant outside of being wholly telling of how much of an unethical dickhead you are.
4. I recommend editing that bit about your exes lawyer working in cahoots with us. I don’t imagine the checks the The Big Bad State cuts you every month can pay for the legal damages rendered by a libel suit. Moron.
A video of Matt’s interaction with various SFK members from the day of his court appearance will be posted in the next few days. In the meantime, here is a picture of J-to the-P of Cop Block doing what he does best: running to the boys in blue when things don’t go his way. Matt actually called the cops and claimed SFK was “harassing him” despite his definition of such an act labeling everything he and Ian Bernard’s shitshow of a group do as the same.
On Dec. 8 of 2014, Ian posted a blog about the Schmidt’s ongoing dispute with Anne Tallon, legal guardian of a child who has bullied their daughter. Tallon petitioned for a order of protection against Jennifer predicated on a series of events where the boy alleges Jennifer intimidated and/or threatened him with death. While the court docket is public knowledge it’s no small leap of logic to presume Ian went hunting for some mud to sling at the Schmidts. Especially when the crux of his blog post and the subsequent smear campaign was one of the many wild and unsubstantiated allegations made by Tallon’s child: that Jenn approached him with a knife and threatened to kill him. Tallon herself noted the fallacious nature of his post:
Purposefully misrepresenting the nature of the dispute and exploitng an emotionally-disturbed child was just the beginning. Ian posted the phone number of Jenn’s business which lead to her receiving harassing calls from FK fanboys and other pieces of human wreckage with one intellectual titan mockingly ordering a bouquet with the message “Do what I say or I’ll cut you, you little shit”. Ian also approached Tallon at her home seeking comments for the blog he was about to publish. As noted in her affidavit above, Tallon was not thrilled that Ian was attempting to exploit her and her child in his terror campaign against the Schmidts.
On Dec. 9 Ian contacts WMUR about the story. Both Schmidt and the Tallon decline to comment. Tallon notes this in her affidavit and that the Dec. 9 segment included images of her neighborhood and her ward’s school. The segment has a negative impact on the child as he starts receiving questions and blame for the incident at the school from other students. The school is later forced to issue a letter to parent’s assuring them that their students are safe from the media circus.
Due to Ian’s meddling, the plaintiff motioned to amend her petition on Dec. 24 to include Ian’s malevolent behavior as evidence of endangerment .
Bernard further escalates his terror campaign on Dec 12. when he publishes a press release with his skewed version of events including links to Boston’s employer’s website. As the past has shown, this was likely done to recruit a harassment brigade to blast them with antagonistic phone calls. In telling show of arrogance he claim to have “broke the story” on Free Keene.
In summation: Ian Bernard turned a personal matter between two adults into a public spectacle to humiliate and silence his critics. He violated their privacy and jeopardized the safety of their children and encouraged his associates and admirers to harass and intimidate the Schmidts. He peddled misquotations to spread innuendo and vicious rumors about people who had the audacity to wound his ego. He published the Schmidt’s home and business contact information knowing that it could lead to harassment and intimidation. He allowed chalk-wielding simpletons like Rich Paul, Manic Kitt, and/or Garret Ean to draw disgusting caricatures of Jenn in Central Square without censure.
Ian Bernard is a pathetic narcissistic whose only grand achievement thus far is turning an entire city against him. His actions and those of his trained apes not only stand as testament to Free Keene’s lack of integrity but also the lengths both will go to silence critics. A popular phrase among the milieu of dumbass slogans FK uses is “good ideas don’t require force”. Ian and FK obviously have no faith in this sentiment as they believe the goals of liberty must be met with intimidation and smear campaigns.
Does the liberty community condone this behavior? Will his peers ever hold him accountable for this behavior? Are headlines garnered by terrible people doing terrible things more important to the liberty movement than actually living up to their alleged belief in non-agression?
According to the woman featured below Mark Edge is currently “investigating her complaint”. As of this writing Edge or any other representative of Free Talk Live has not publicly respond to her allegations.
Brad Spangler is a libertarian theorist and commentator (though the libertarian community are trying their hardest to disavow ever having knowledge or respect for the monster) who recently admitted to molesting his daughter and presumably viewing child pornography. Brad is on the run after claiming he was going to turn himself in to the police for his heinous crime. His Facebook profile is now littered with comments for him to make good on his claim or kill himself.
To make things more sordid, one of Spangler’s intended victims has come forward with her account of her brief interaction with the deviant which ended after he made passes at her. In her video, she made an aside to Free Talk Live in which she admonishes them for taking Spangler’s side and exposing her name and other details to FTL’s cretinous audience after Brad did not take her rejection well. She was 15 at the time.
Below are some screen shots taken from a 12/03/2013 posting on Brad’s Facebook about age of consent laws. Note FTL’s Mark Edge giving approval to the exposed pedophile’s missive about sex with children. Interestingly, Spangler’s opinions mirror that of Ian Bernard’s as captured in a FTL broadcast from 2010 in which Mark made pains to excuse Ian’s hideous opinion.
Bernard/Freeman turned the FK spin machine up to 11 today by linking Christopher “the Enforcer” Cantwell’s phony SFK site and implying it was this one. SFK member Josh Erickson made the mistake of calling Ian out on his dishonesty and received insults, sexually demeaning comments about his partner, and an invitation to a fist-fight by Cantwell for his efforts. The screenshots below do contain language referring to sexual assault and rape. Consider this your trigger warning if you are sensitive to such topics. Furthermore, SFK does not condone Erickson’s use of foul language but also understands his frustration with Bernard and FK’s constant reliance on lies of omission and misrepresentation to distort the truth.
There has always been a sizable part of the liberty community unhappy with FK’s representation of their philosophy. Its plain to see this contingent of critics increased in number after the Colbert segment skewered them for being self-righteous rebels without a clue. Ian addressed their concerns in typical fashion – downplay, deny, or distort – after the arch-misogynist Cantwell posted an image of a female SFK member with a sexually demeaning description that calls her a heroin addict. That Ian only addressed the heroin accusation and not the sexualized hate is telling of his character and more evidence of his blatant lack of respect for those who dare critique him.
Cantwell does indeed base his self-worth and income off of his Youtube/website traffic. A venture that has left him destitute, nearly homeless, and begging for donations and items from his Amazon wishlist which reads like Michael Vanderboegh’s shopping list. Here he waving his website traffic in front of Erickson and then making a not-so-subtle invitation to a violent confrontation.
Stay tuned as these intellectual giants will surely spew more dishonesty and vitriol as the Free Keene edifice continues to burn.
