I’ve been reporting on Breitbart (Indict Breitbart!) toady John Patrick Frey aka Patterico for a few weeks now. This Los Angeles County Deputy D.A. apparently has a history of associating with Boston area stalker/fabricator Seth Allen. I first covered this in Patterico’s Penalization.
Having failed to embarrass me over the fact that a few years ago I was so buff I had a photo in the Hundred Best Male Nudes on Flickr, they’ve now deduced that I’m A Hacker.
And they’ve dispatched a ninth degree blackbelt script kiddie to, well … the behavior looks a whole lot like how they handled Congressman Weiner. Hold your nose, leap over the inscrutable squiggle of additional content, and prepare to mock and deride another Breitbart fabricator.
So first Jen Preston blew the whole Weiner talking to teenage girls fabrication to bits. The ‘girl’, Nikki Reid, is a fake, her mom is a fake, and Patterico keeps trying to fluff this nonsense up by having a random internet troll, @JohnReid9 give ‘interviews’ via his blog. Looks like a frantic cover up to me.
Then Anonymiss keeps looking at them, and I keep getting these detailed emails about who does what to whom, and I keep writing about it. I want to Indict Breitbart, I’m all about getting James O’Keefe some consequences for his latest fabrication laden video aimed at the Ohio Medicaid program, and this Patterico guy I have mixed feelings about – he makes me laugh, which is good, but he does so by being an irritating assclown, which I get quite enough of from other sources.
The latest irritant, which I’ve dubbed Patterico’s Personal Pipsqueak, is Twitter user @PeterPavel1.
Pecker here shows up 15 July 2011. He talks at a few high profile hackers, white hat and black hat, then he lets out the truth: he’s my biggest fan. I am so fascinating that he’s going to learn all about me. Oh, and he’ll figure out who Anonymiss is, too. And just look at that, since I won’t waste my time with this basement bound compulsive self stimulator, they’re maybe going to release information about me to law enforcement.
Awfully similar to the handling of Congressman Weiner, isn’t it? Can’t play the sex angle with my nude, I have a cute bottom and it’s already on the internets, so the next step is trying to stalk and intimidate me and those around me. Controlling behavior, just like with Weiner – you do this, or we’ll do that to you.
In all fairness, this appears to be a follow on strategy for them. First someone went and chatted up @th3j35t3r, America’s lone right wing hacker. These guys were focused on jihadi sites, which earned them some cred, but then they got silly on the domestic front and attacked the noisy, litigious Westboro Baptist Church.
Due to where I sit in the web of life I knew the real names of a couple of the people associated with @th3j35t3r clear back in late November or early December. Approaching WBC was a bad mistake, as they’ve got a pet law firm, but they also mouthed off to Anonymous in February or March, and someone again felt the need to tell me the names of people involved. I’m surprised the church hasn’t hauled them into court already, but it’s a murky situation due to the international aspect, and that’s really a puzzle best left to people with more patience and authority than me.
So, having struck out with the real deal, they whip up a sock puppet that knows enough about hacker culture to pass with the casual reader, but the things it does and says just don’t look right, and I’d say that even if it wasn’t aimed at me personally.
So there’s fake teen age girl Nikki Reid, fake mom Patricia Reid, fake dad @JohnReid9, and I’m guessing that @PeterPavel1 will claim to be Nikki’s boyfriend.
“Peter” desperately wants to present as the real deal, but the account clearly says “terrified outsider wanting to intimidate”.
Rupert Murdoch’s papers think they’re hackers. They get in the news and then suddenly @LulzSec’s leapin’ lizards descend in force, offering free education to the hapless news outlets.
So, Paddy, you’re a prosecutor in the Los Angeles county gang unit. Would you put on a do-rag, baggy pants, and walk down Western Ave at midnight, hollerin’ at random gang bangers? If the answer is no, do you think it’s wise to try something like that on my street?
You, sir, are a lulzcow, and if you carry on in this fashion someone will notice and decide to milk you. ~cough~ beandogs ~cough~
