How a Convicted Woman Beater Became a Foot Soldier for SJWs (UPDATE)

Robert "Bobby" Oliveira is everything my harshest critics imagine me to be. Where as I live a mild-mannered, drama-free lifestyle, Bobby Oliveira is a convicted criminal and woman beater who makes death threats online.

Bobby Oliveira came to my attention in early October, when he began threatening me online. Oliveira was upset that I supported #GamerGate, a consumer revolt opposing corruption in journalism.

He has made numerous threats against me and several women, including prominent feminist C.H. Sommers. 

I conducted a search of public records to assess the threat Mr. Oliveira may pose to me other vulnerable women. What I found will shock you.

UPDATE (March 11, 2015): Bobby Oliveira has made further threats against women, telling one woman, "I like doxxing people. I like hurting them after the doxxing more."

Oliveira is a convicted woman beater.

I had an investigation into Oliveira performed. Mr. Oliveira lived in Rhode Island. You can search for his court records here

His criminal history is extensive, including everything from violent crimes to stalking:

  • Case No. 61-2007-17959 - Violation of a No Contact Order
  • Case No. P2-1986-2105A - Possession of a Controlled Substance
  • Case No. 61-1995-03632 - Violation of a Protective Order
  • Case No. 62-2000-05720 - Possession of a Deadly Weapon
  • Case No. 62-2009-01109 - Violation of a Protective Order

In other words, Robert Oliveria has had multiple restraining orders taken out against him. He has violated various protective orders orders on repeated occassions.

Why is Anil Dash  friendly with such a man? 

One would think civilized people would have nothing to do with a serial stalker and woman beater like Robert Oliveira. One would be incorrect.

Robert Oliveira reached out to  people who don't like me very much - including Anil Dash  - and informed him of his efforts to silence and intimidate me and several women.

Oliveria informs Anil Dash that he is going to start hurting people.

Oliveira told Dash about his attempt to silence and harass. (See Archive link.)

Rather than renounce Oliveria, Anil Dash simply told him to "stop CC'ing him" and to "go play somewhere else." (See Archive link.)

Anil Dash and Robert Oliveira.

Why hasn't Anil Dash renounced Mr. Oliveira? After all, Mr. Dash has told people to renounce me, under some sort of guilt-by-assocation argument. 

Screen Shot 2014-12-28 at 11.00.21 PM

Robert Oliveira is an actual stalker, criminal, and violent criminal. And yet Dash seems to be quiet about him. Why is that?

Why are others who oppose #GamerGate friendly with Mr. Oliveira?

Is Anil Dash hoping that Oliveira will kill me or otherwise harm me?

What do you think? Why is there such radio silence from the people who vocally oppose me simply because some of my Tweets have upset them?

Is a Twitter poster (that's me) morally worse than an actual stalker and woman beater?

Inquiring minds want to know.

UPDATE: Robert Oliveira claims he is not the same Robert Oliveira who was convicted of the below noted offenses. Mr. Oliveira writes:

Mr. Cernovich makes several claims which have basis in reality. You might notice the list of crimes. Those belong to other Robert Oliveira’s without my middle initial, “T”, and birthdate 7 April 1967.

In his rebuttal, Mr. Oliveira admits to conduct that would constitute domestic assault, admitting, "Yes, the night I got sober, I did knock a phone out of a woman’s hand."

There is no way for me to confirm that Mr. Oliveria is telling the truth. That said, I also give people the right to rebuttal, which is why comments are open. I also have no problem admitting when I am wrong. 

Absent obtaining a SSN, it will be up to the reader to decide for himself whether an admitted drug addict who stalks women online is telling the truth.

That said, I did check publicly available court records. I searched for one Robert Oliveira, who was born in 1967.

That Robert Oliveira was convicted of domestic assault. Maybe that Robert Oliveira beat up a family member rather than a woman. Who knows?

One Robert Oliveira who was born in 1967 was convicted of at least three offenses in the state of Rhode Island, including:

  • Simple Assault/Domestic - Case No. 21-2002-02326
  • Disorderly Conduct - Case No. 21-2001-02140 
  • Crank/Obscene Phone Calls (multiple counts) - Case No. 61-2002-04652

I will leave it to the reader to determine whether the Robert Oliveira mentioned below is the same BobbyO1967 who has relentlessly stalked me and harassed multiple women online.

Of course, if Mr. Oliveira would like to post more information, he is welcome to post a comment explaining his conduct.


How Zoe Quinn and Margaret Pless Tried Getting Mike Cernovich Swatted

"doxing & hacking & SWATing tend to be a package deal." - Zoe Quinn

Several weeks ago I heard about an interesting case raising First Amendment issue. In that case, Zoe Quinn, an online agitator and professional panhandler sought to silence her ex-boyfriend for sharing his tale of emotional abuse.

Although relationship drama is nonsense I don't care about, something interesting happened. Zoe Quinn obtained a protective order against Eron Gjoni that prevented him from talking about her. At all.

The protective order seemed clearly unconstitutional. I obtained the court records to learn more. Since then my life has been permanently altered.

I have had:

  • The State Bar called on me.
  • The police have been called on me.
  • My home address and pictures of my home posted.
  • Threats about hacking my site were made.
  • False accusations that I have threatened women with rape were made.

How Doxing Leads to Swatting.

Although it's easy to dismiss the campaign of harassment against me as drama, Zoe Quinn and her co-conspirator Margaret Pless, a graduate student in New York, upped the ante. 

Margaret Pless posted pictures of my home address. Zoe Quinn, who had talked to Margaret Pless before posting the address, retweeted my home address and detailed pictures of my home to her over 30,000 Twitter followers.

Zoe Quinn

Zoe Quinn knew of the dox in advance.

After retweeted that "best journalism" to her 30,000+ plus followers, Zoe Quinn backtracked. She claimed she had no idea Margaret Pless doxed me. This is a lie.

On October 21, Margaret Pless posted the following comment to a blog dedicated to cyberstalking me. The comment read:

"I'm preparing an article about Cernovich for my own site....I'm holding it because Zoe Quinn says she wants to talk to me."

Margaret Pless

 

Why did Zoe Quinn and Margaret Pless post pictures of my home as well as my home address?

What good reason exists for posting not only the exact address where I reside but also pictures of my home? There is a good reason.

Zoe Quinn and Margaret Pless were trying to get me Swatted.

Oh, sure, they will say, "No way!"

They will act as if they are precious little snowflake who would do such a thing. What do the experts have to say?

What is Swatting?

Wikipedia notes:

Swatting is the act of tricking an emergency service (via such means as hoaxing a 9-1-1 dispatcher) into dispatching an emergency response based on the false report of an on-going critical incident. Episodes range from large to small, from the deployment of bomb squads, SWAT units and other police units and the concurrent evacuations of schools and businesses to a single fabricated police report meant to discredit an individual as a prank or personal vendetta. While it is a misdemeanor or a felony in the USA in and of itself to report any untruth to law enforcement, swatting can cause massive disruption to the civil order and the public peace by the hoaxed deployment of police and other civic resources such as ambulances and fire departments. The term derives from SWAT (Special Weapons and Tactics), a highly specialized type of police unit.

How do I know Zoe Quinn and Margaret Pless wanted to get me Swatted?

I was able to avoid the Swatting because I saw something far worse happened to a Los Angeles District Attorney who writes under the name "Patterico."

Patterico almost lost his life after a Swatting incident, and he began researching Swatting. His research revealed the following:

I met personally with the nationwide experts on swatting in December 2011: the FBI office in Dallas, Texas. They told me that swatting is an extreme form of harassment — and that swatters typically combine swatting with other forms of harassment, including: complaining to the victim’s workplace, defaming the victim online, “Googlebombing” the victim, publishing the victim’s address online, filing phony reports of criminal activity by the victim, and so forth.

Does that sound familiar? If not, let me refresh your memory:

Margaret Caroline Pless posted my information online. This included my personal home address as well as pictures of my home.

Zoe Quinn has encouraged her followers to report me to the State Bar, which is their only way to complain to my workplace, as I am self-employed.

Before publishing the article, Margaret Pless spoke to Zoe Quinn. ("I'm holding it because Zoe Quinn says she wants to talk to me.")

Zoe Quinn a/k/a Chelsea Van Valkenburg called this "good journalism," and shared my address and pictures of my home with her 30,000+ Twitter followers.

Margaret Pless encouraged her blog readers to call the LAPD on me, even though I have not committed any crimes. 

Margaret Pless called the police on me.

Randi Harper, a drug addict who has been in jail, falsely accused me of making rape threats.

There has been a non-stop campaign of harassment against me, including calling me a stalker, harasser of women, and a rapist. 

Zoe Quinn's harassment and doxing of me is verifiable.

The abuse I faced is real and verifiable.

Unlike the threats Zoe Quinn claims to have faced, I have been falsely accused of crimes and doxed by the actual account of Zoe Quinn, Margaret Pless, and Randi Harper.

This doesn't make me a helpless victim. It is what it is.

Yet when the media refuses to acknowlege that I have been a victim (by their standards) of harassment, doxing, and a potential Swatting, we know that there is a serious problem with ethics in journalism.

UPDATE: Zoe Quinn has all but confessed to trying to get Mike Cernovich Swatted.

On January 3, 2015, it seems Ms. Quinn's guilty conscience got the best of her. She published to her Twitter timeline: "doxing & hacking & SWATing tend to be a package deal."

As Ms. Quinn and Ms. Pless doxed Mike Cernovich, posting detailed images of his home and publishing that information to 30,000+ people, one doesn't need to draw too many inferences to conclude that their intent was to get Cernovich Swatted.
