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.
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.
