The video today is a good reminder of 1976. Such a long time ago!
Well, it’s been an odd week. A very odd week, with loads of discussions, loads of decisions but, more than anything, for me at any rate, a realisation of many things – not least that Shylah’s and Bianca’s parents really don’t give a toss about what happens to their daughters. But what’s new? Carol and Norm kind of set a trend.
By the way – at last we got decent comments! My previous post has brought out, for perhaps the first time, the beginnings of a real discussion. Thanks to everyone for contributing.
I must admit I’ve been flummoxed. I still can’t get my head round why, after cajoling, begging, being polite, and eventually threatening to go psycho over these kids, the likes of Renee Porten and the rest of the Todd Squad did not once flinch in their refusal to be kind to Mrs M. Not once. Christ, I thought I was a hard bastard, but bloody Hell, that Renee makes me look like Little Bo Peep.
Let me set out what might have happened. There were two ploys planned. I was, to quote Captain Blackadder ‘As cunning as a fox who’s just been appointed Professor of Cunning at Oxford University’. I would tell you my plans, but then that would spoil the element of surprise should I need to resurrect them in the near future.
But let me just point out the fact that the repercussions would have been horrendous. Not that it seems to matter to Renee and her cronies – after all, none of them would be affected. Or would they? mwahahaha! mwahahaha! (I really need to stop channelling Dr. Evil).
A by-product of all this, though, was that I found out who my TRUE friends are. Those people who really know me supported me. Those who don’t know me, didn’t. So we sorted out the wheat from the chaff.
(and by the way – any astute viewers will see the original title of this post in the bar at the top. I didn’t change it. Who knows, it may be used one day!)
But why plan all this?
Well, I knew that the message would get back to Carol, and that it would go round the Todd Squad. And I sort of knew what the response would be – that is, they would let me slaughter anyone rather than have to tell the truth. But I also knew that some of the verminous Todd supporters would get in touch.
Take Renee Porten, for instance (for anyone who doesn’t know, she’s head honcho of the ‘Amanda Todd’ closed group on Facebook).
What a little liar! Doesn’t anyone know by now that it is far easier to tell the truth than to lie? And what a vicious character.
‘I don’t know any of these girls’ she said when I mentioned them. Then, when I kind of hinted about what I would do, two minutes later: ‘Yes, I know who Shylah is and I will get in touch to warn her’. Good grief! If you’re going to lie, at least do it properly.
In a rather manic way, she said I was a ‘roadblock’ in the way of their plans, and that they ‘wanted rid of me’. She said that there was no doubt that Carol knew about what I was threatening, but ‘instructions’ were to ignore it.
So I upped the stakes. I calmly explained what the likely consequences of my actions would be – and believe you me, they would not have been good. But the reaction was ‘go ahead’. Well, I must admit that was like a red rag to a bull, but then most of their responses are.
I went on to talk about a certain Will Burke, a fellow admin of the same group with Renee. Again, for those who don’t know who Will Burke is, he is a demented lunatic who goes round the Amanda Todd pages in several guises and threatens young kids. He has been banned from Facebook, but has re-emerged with extra fervour. So what was Renee’s view of Will? ‘He is part of the team’.
(But what does the delightful Renee have to say about a violent thug like Will Burke? ‘Will and I do not always see eye to eye. He serves a helpful purpose and is passionate. Yes he crosses lines. I have spoken to him on a number of occasions.’
A helpful purpose? What would that be? Child-threatener?)
Not really a nice team, is it?
So Renee lectures me about how ‘good’ this team is and, of course, I question it. And guess what comes up? ‘pedo’. Yep – that old nonsense. Honestly, it’s quite laughable – if you can’t make a decent discussion, resort to name calling.
So I raise the question of the persecution of the mother of the young man who was wrongly accused of being the imaginary stalker. Reaction? Now, come on, you know what’s coming…….he/she deserved it. These people are so nice. I mentioned that perhaps an apology and an explanation might be a good thing to do…..’nope’.
And this all comes from Renee, a woman who claims to be ‘a force for good’. Just how delusional can you get?
So now the pressure is on. Renee runs off and warns everyone. She tells Carol, she tells all the lovely people – warning! warning! Philip Rose is about to tell the truth!
I supply some evidence. ‘Where did you get those videos from, pedo?’ says Renee, as if I am some sort of super-sleuth Capper who goes around tempting Shylah and the rest to do all sorts of dreadful things against their will.
‘Well, they’ve posted them there themselves, on their own accounts!’
Five minutes later, some of the videos are down, but not before I have downloaded them. Not bad for someone who didn’t know any of these girls!
‘Would you like to see any more evidence?’ I ask. ‘I’m not going to look’ replies Renee, probably sticking her fingers in her ears and singing ‘la la la’ at the top of her voice.
And so it goes on. Others join in. ‘Go ahead and sacrifice the girls’ – OK, those weren’t the real words, but you understand the thoughts behind the many comments.
I virtually plead with them. All you have to do is apologise. ‘No’. All you have to do is tell the truth. ‘No’. All you have to do is to comment on my blog, say what you like, call it off, save the girls. ‘No’. Are you aware that these girls (at least one of them) will be in big trouble? ‘Yes’. But you won’t do anything to stop it? ‘Correct’.
Then, what – THREE days after the ultimatum? – we get the comments appearing. And, really, they weren’t too bad. But they took it down to the wire. And good old Colin almost comes to the rescue. It’s just that he didn’t cry. And he’s not a girl.
So there you have it. The Todd Squad were prepared to allow a handful of girls to be subjected to pain and humiliation, so long as the almighty Todd Squad, the Holy Carol, remains intact. No doubt they were all prepared for a propaganda counter-attack this morning – spouting the usual nonsense about it all being lies, about how I am every troll on the Internet, about how I am perso, Viper, rOra, Satan himself.
But it didn’t work that way. All they did was to reinforce just what a bunch of scum the Todd supporters really are. I hate using words like scum – it’s chucked around so much these days – but it gets across what they really are. And as for DeeJay’s latest effort (see end of yesterday’s posts), that takes scumminess to entirely new levels. They were prepared to sit idly by and watch girls get torn apart by the wolves (mmm….Rose’s Rioters?) just so they didn’t have to acknowledge the truth.
But don’t you Todd supporters go bragging that I’ve backed down. Well, OK, do, because it will give me a reason to kick off again, and it would be a shame to waste all those meticulous plans.
Before I go. As usual, when I think something is important, I have a tendency to repeat it over and over again.
The girls involved in the Todd flashing fiasco (Shylah Watson and Bianca Nitoi and others), or their parents, or Carol Todd, or many other people, for that matter, could have, by telling the truth, saved a lot of pain and anguish inflicted on someone else – Mrs M.
No-one has really mentioned Mrs M, but I ask all mothers out there who might be reading this (and everyone else too, it’s just I think mothers will be more moved) to think and to have compassion.
Mrs M has a son. To everyone else, he might not be the the best of sons in the world, but you can bet your bottom dollar that Mrs M loves him. Now consider – the son that you love has had hatred and malice thrown at him by the bucketload. Not for any valid reason, not because he deserves it, not because he is guilty of any crime, but because of rumours spread about by Anonymous and Patrick McGuire, aided and abetted by Carol Todd. And he receives death threats – and judging by the levels of lunacy shown by Will Burke, Renee Porten and the rest, these are death threats to be taken very seriously. Just how would YOU feel?
Yet Mrs M lives with this sorrow and anxiety on a daily basis. And why? Because Carol Todd and her cronies, even when asked under extreme threat, refuse to do anything about it. And before anyone says anything – yes, a long time ago I approached her and her scum in a polite and rational manner, resulting in persecution of me.
So today is, perhaps, a good day for me. I have confirmed that all my worst thoughts about Carol Todd and her gang are true. So perhaps I can have a happier weekend, even though such a confirmation isn’t nice, in many ways.
Once again, thanks to my supporters. I’ll try to brighten up your weekend. And to those who doubted me – well, I did ask you to trust me, you chose not to.
Ta ta for now. Have a good Saturday!
Peace and love to P, J and M (my American friend) for sticking with me. To GF, who got caught in the crossfire. To Roy. And maybe to Colin, who rushed in at the last minute. Oh – and a big shout out to SAMANTHAAA, who has popped up every now and then from day one.
