So the justice seekers are once again the sick trolls according to the headline of tomorrow's Daily Star and Jerry Lawton. The reasons why they have raised £25k+ and rising have been obscured once more by the martyrdom and continuing pain of Kate and Gerry McCann. A couple to whom no amount of money is ever enough. Over £4m has passed through their non transparent Fund, most of it spent on protecting the parents' reputation and seeking vengeance on anyone who dares to criticise them.
In supporting Goncalo Amaral, the public finally have a way in which to show how disgusted they are at the cover up that appears to have the entire British establishment in its grip. They know the newspapers are lying to them and they want to know why.
|I don't believe the McCanns|
In the words of Gerry, it was a disaster, most of those who saw what happened did indeed think, 'yeh, Brenda was just like me, and she didn't deserve that'. You see we are not the sick trolls. We believe that little 3, nearly 4, year old girl deserved a chance to live. We do not accept that a little girl can just disappear with no-one held accountable. Like Goncalo Amaral we want to know what happened to Madeleine and we are not stupid enough to believe the McCann lies. Who are the bad guys? The ones who seeking justice for the child, or the ones covering up the circumstances of her disappearance? Isn't it kind of sick to cover up a child's death?
But lets take a closer look at the McCanns publicity campaign, or more particularly the anonymous gang/army of self appointed guardians who defend the MCann family so vigorously online. Or at least the hardcore who remain, the ones who do it just for fun - they are so crap at what they do, I don't think anyone would pay them.
The pro McCann sites are a funny little circle of Uriah Heeps that's for sure, lol. I can almost picture them sitting there eating worms as their world closes in. Sites such as STMs and JATYK2 are dark, murky and very strange places indeed, the 'characters' are surreal, nameless and faceless, their fear of exposure is palpable. The raging Tigerloaf, shivering in his/her cowardly boots while demanding that ALL McCann sceptics be named and publicly shamed - demanding for others that which he/she fears the most.
Why the terror of exposure? What are they afraid of? They demand that our publishers, employers, family, friends, neighbours etc, be made aware of our beliefs on the McCann case, yet they are so ashamed/fearful of their own. Do their families, employers, neighbours know what they do?
If their cause is honourable and their motives good, why not use their own names and faces? If people were attacking my family, friends or those I love or admire, I would not hesitate to stand proudly beside them. And I wouldn't have been in the slightest bit bothered by Martin Brunt turning up on my doorstep with a camera crew because I write with honesty and integrity. I KNOW I haven't written anything I would be ashamed of. The best and the most important 'writing' advice I have ever received or given by the way. You never have to delete anything.
As protective as the creatures on JATYK2 are of their real characters, they often give insightful little snippets away and it is at times like these I can see how pitiful they really are. For students of psychology, psychopathy and what it is that makes people evil, these sites make fascinating studies.
Naturally, I especially pick up on the comments directed at myself (my own narcissism, lol), The reasons people hate me now are exactly the same as they were, when I was 5/10/15/55, there is a pattern. I am attractive, confident and articulate and I don't know/refuse to accept my 'place'. And anyone with similar traits will know exactly what I am talking about, and can like myself spot the 'usual' enemy in a nanosecond. I never changed for any of them in the past, and I'm not going to do it for the new ones now, lol. I don't want to be a sheep, I want to be 'special' - my daddy told me I was, and I'm gonna be! I eschew society's codes and conventions and I laugh out loud at Bureaucracy - that seems to upset some people, especially those with state of the art filing systems. My blunt honesty disarms and frightens some people, it puts them in touch with feelings of their own that they would prefer to keep hidden. Its much cosier and safer on their side of the fence, with the crowd.
Embittered women of my age and generation look to me for reasons to continue in their own safe domestic sphere and keep their heads down. I'm an example of what happens to attention seekers and the scolding I get is my just desserts for stepping out of line, not forgetting of course, its great fun bitching about others. Think garden fence and 'er down the road, who is no better than she ought to be and you get the gist. Some things never change.
To a certain section of white middle class men, I am an abomination, a terrible influence on their subjugated wives and a direct threat to the cosy patriarchal status quo. Unfortunately (and creepily) for me, their underlying fear/loathing of women is directly linked to their genital area. I'm not special in this regard btw, any adult woman would have the same effect.
Injustice infuriates me now just as much as it did when I was 5 - if HE can do it, so can I! I have always taken the side of the underdog, if I could see other kids struggling to say what they wanted, I knew I had the gob on me to say it for them! For what it is worth, I have instigated rebellions from the playground to the work place to the local town centre, I just can't help myself. Ergo, I have had the same 'enemies' all my life, only now there are more of them and they are easier to spot.
I have given myself as an example but all of us who have been on the receiving end of the vicious McCann publicity machine will recognise everything I have said. The stalking, the Blacklist, the Death Dossier all emanate from the pro McCann side of the fence, but you already know that Jerry.
Trolls are indeed sick, but sicker I think are those journalists who attack decent, caring, law abiding citizens who have the right to ask what the hell is going on. If the only way to get justice for the little British child Madeleine is through the Portuguese civil courts, then so be it. The McCanns can't silence everyone.
