As you read these stories, one thing should be clear. All three of the major plot lines have one thing in common... they all involve the angry reaction of right wing cretins who objected to having light shone on the things they were trying to do under the cover of darkness.
Bill Looman, the tin-plated dictator of a "militia" leader who commandeered a North Georgia housing association to turn it into his own private racist military fiefdom? He liked it when the media portrayed him as the plucky little businessman standing firm in the face of what he called the restrictive policies of President Obama. He didn't like it nearly as much when he was shown to be a cowardly bully, using the power given to him by a fellow right wing land owner to terrorize other homeowners into either complying with his power grab or being pushed out of the development, losing their homes and property.

In this blog, I will do my best to explain the rationale and the series of events that led to the sustained right wing attack on my reputation. Everything is linked to its original source as we trace the timeline from when I began writing about a local Northwest Georgia Militia Warlord's ascension to power in a rural community, through the ludicrous attempt by a gang of political arsonists calling themselves "Operation Burn Notice" to steal money from a legitimate "Occupy Madison" website, through the exposure of a conservative blogger club's attempt to defraud the IRS in an attempt to destroy an ex-con turned social justice activist.
THE STORY THUS FAR:
In Part I, you read about how a Georgia landowner turned control of a tract of real estate over to a would-be right wing militia warlord: Bill Looman. In this installment, reporting from 2011 reveals Looman's reign of terror.
