Ed.--I've had a few run-ins with Ron Brynaert since I accidentally came across him on Twitter looking at Nadia Naffe's personal page (former James O' Keefe associate, the convicted ACORN "pimp" from the far right)...uh, bothering her and a number of key people involved in Occupy Wall Street, basically targets on the left and the right.
For those who might not remember, Brynaert was the executive editor of Rawstory for around four years. He abruptly left in late 2010. According to him, he's currently being sued for $500,000 USD by his former employers. He also has no obvious employment, yet does an awful lot of investigating of his targets--how does one afford this living in or around NYC without some kind of clear support coming in? This leads me to some anonymous accusations made online that he's a police informant.
A curious fact: when I blocked him in my Gmail account, all our correspondence vanished. Is this a normal feature on Google's mail accounts? I don't have the time to find out, the reader's invited to look themselves...
I of course have no idea if he's one or not. However, in my opinion, based on two decades of researching informant programs in the United States, he fits the profile based on his online escapades alone. One accusation made recently by an anonymous commenter named "NYPD Blue," who apparently works law enforcement in Long Island, at least according to them, has kicked this off. Their story fits. Are they correct, or is Brynaert unhinged as a slew of anonymous online commenting claims? I can only go by what my own direct online experience with him has been. From my experience, his behavior has been: bizarre, combative, irrational, filled with leading comments, posited on a desire to rifle you for information (I'm open and don't care, nothing to hide here), to hit to ply you with disinformation, but most of all, that he acts in a way that can only be described as antisocial in what comes off as a clinical sense of the term.
Here's the original article with the anonymous accusation, it's been taken down, although I'm sure it's cached. I captured it and clipped it, this is the clip version, no alterations beyond the images being removed by me. I'm quoting it in full for academic purposes:
And that was it, I noticed that he never responded and got it pulled. recently. He's also likely to do that with this article while he does far worse to others without any obvious consequences. People have a right to their opinions when it comes to public behavior, and the Internet is as public as it gets.
And, so I thought it was over. Ron had come my way, bothered me a lot, tried to make leading statements, tried to cast my own statements in a weird light I'd have never imagined, and was unpleasant enough for me to consider it a not-so-subtle form of harassment. But he fucked off...for a time. Now he's come back around, fishing, looking for something. This time he wanted to bait me with something from the Palfrey case in what had to have been hours of research on his part. Does this guy ever sleep?
Our recent exchange, because I saved it this time. Ask yourself why he was able to send me an email after he'd been blocked, and why our previous correspondence vanished, it's at least a little odd and convenient for him:
If you're done smearing me on Twitter and at Breitbart Unmasked, perhaps we can work together on learning more about this Justice League blogger SP Biloxi aka Monique Rawlings, who appears to live in Riverside, California and what her connections to Jason Leopold are:
Postscript 06/15/2012: Ron/Roy sent me a Youtube clip of a Cheap Trick song. I don't even give a shit enough to look further on, but I'm assuming this is "Dream Police." "Using the term "smear" isn't a denial, incidentally, and I'm entitled to my opinion, you put yourself in the public eye and continue to in a way that's unacceptable. Was daddy-o ever called "Hank the Crank"?
Say, "I'm not a police informant" online, write it, and say it under oath some time. Then I might start believing it ain't so. That still leaves you with coming off as completely batshit, a nutty bunny. Regardless, blow, and not me, for the love of God. You're no Sidney Reilly, more William O' Neal. I wouldn't be surprised if you ended up the same way: throwing yourself in front of a car, or jumping out of a window. That's how more than a few CIs end up, at their own hand.
And, hey, if I's wrong, bawss, fuhgedaboutit, you're not Henry Hill either.
I should add here that I knew someone who was working Kim's Video when you were there. That's being looked into more deeply, for yucks, and I have the time and motive now, so add one more who's investigating your background. Again, thanks, I needed a spastic crank to base a fictional character off of...
At least the Rawstory folks get some kind of entertainment and vindication watching your activities online, so keep digging that hole down into the archaeological remains of the Five Points looking for your namesake. Roy claimed, not really knowing shit, that the DC Madam case was a "hoax," more of his bilge emanating from the keypad. Whose "hoax": yours, Jeffrey Taylor's, or Palfrey's? I don't see Senator Vitter, Randall Tobias, Dick Morris, and the rest of the Lollipop Guild viewing the scandal as that, not even Kyle Foggo, Brent Wilkes, and a cast of thousands in defense and intelligence contracting.
Oh yeah: fuck you for having a problem with Occupy Wall Street, you fucking piece of establishment shit. Now hurry up and hit the fucking bottom that's been calling out to you your entire life.
