Our good friend Neal N. Bob’s comment from this afternoon- too good to lose in the shuffle.
You see, there are two Bill Schmalfeldts.
One is the Internet badass, standing up to what he sees as evil, without fear or favor. The other one, when mewling to third parties (including courts) about the slings and arrows of cruel fortune, unfailingly describes himself as “a 60 year old man, suffering from Parkinson’s for 15 years.”
In his victories, no matter how fleeting, William credits his own strength, intelligence, courage and character.
However, when called to account for his own actions, he jumps into his magical disease circle and declares, “Parkinson’s! I’m not responsible for anything!” To read his court pleadings, you’d be forgiven for thinking that he was just minding his own business in tincasa when the entire world decided to pile on a cripple.
But going back to at least 2007 at XMFan (the furthest back I’ve personally looked) , he would actively go out looking for a fight. His current situation is instructive. For whatever reason, William decided that he was Brett Kimberlin’s avenging angel. Ali Akbar and Lee Stranahan didn’t go looking for Schmalfeldt, Schmalfeldt went looking for them. John Hoge and Aaron Walker commented on that, and William issued a declaration of war against them. It was only when the battle was joined that he donned the responsibility cloak of his infirmity.
It was only a matter of time before that carried over into the courts. And now he wants to use his own plea as further evidence of his own victimhood because William isn’t even responsible for his own words.
Without exception, Schmalfeldt throws the first punch and then hides behind his rolly-walker. He’s the very definition of a coward.
Any thoughts, Bill?
