‘All that stands against the McCanns are the suspicions of Amaral which are all based on the only similar case he’s previously investigated’.
That is a statement from the comments section of my blog, not mine obviously, but it pretty much sums up why the McCanns and their supporters pour such venom into the angry words they use on here to denounce the former detective. It’s all his fault. No one would suspect them if it wasn’t for Goncalo Amaral. He is blamed for wasting time in focusing on them, thus allowing the abductor to get away. But worse, and this was the basis of their legal claims against him, he had told the world their daughter was dead. And if the world believed their daughter was dead, no-one would look for her.
The McCanns, or more specifically Ziggy on here, continue to be affronted by anyone who believes Madeleine is dead. To say Madeleine is dead is to invite a barrage of personal abuse ranging from cruel/evil, to mental health problems, to alcohol and substance abuse. In the Bizarro McCann world, dead is an insult perpetrated by evil online trolls to victimise the parents of a missing child. In the Bizarro McCann world, they are not the ones who did something wrong. It was Warners fault for not putting up notices advising parents to look after their children, it was GA’s fault for investigating them instead of looking for an abductor, it was the Sun’s fault for making people blame them instead of Goncalo Amaral. In the Bizarro McCann world, everything is someone else’s fault.
But it all comes back to Goncalo Amaral, he spoiled everything, and it was all going so well, those grandiose plans they made around the swimming pool were in sight. Fame and fortune lay ahead, an annual Madeleine Day for the whole world. Jim Gamble wanted a specialist police agency to respond to child abduction abroad, had he got it, they would have had nothing to do this past 12 years. Gerry (in his head) had all the skills to be a television host, like John Walsh in the USA, who’s 5 year old son was abducted and murdered. Unfortunately, what he sees when he looks back on his interviews, is the not the same as the rest of us. There is a lot of delusion in the Bizarro McCann world.
If I were a considerate blog host I would ask my readers not to refer to Madeleine as dead, which of course is exactly what the McCanns would like me to do. However, as this blog is about truth and reality, I’m not going to do that. It would be like saying, hey folks I know the hypnotist isn’t here with his swinging brass watch, but could ya all just hop over into the delusional section, it would make the parents feel so much better. I have nothing against being delusional, I think we have all resorted to that at one time or the other, but demanding that others join you is a step too far.
There is nothing evil or malevolent in accepting reality. Madeleine hasn’t been seen in 12 years, even after 48 hours her chances of being alive were slim. The dog that was trained to alert to the scent of cadaver alerted in the apartment of the McCanns (no other), the boot of their hire car, and to items and clothing belonging to the parents. That was enough to change the course of the original investigation and it is enough for lay members of the public to suspect the parents.
Most people haven’t read GA’s book, their suspicions come from what they have seen, heard and read. The weird behaviour of Madeleine's parents. The parents’ behaviour has never been normal, what other bereft parents of a missing child opened an online shop within days of the child going missing? It is the parents behaviour that arouses suspicion, it is so far from normal that it has provided fodder for blogs and forums for years. They paid Lord Bell £500k to stay on the front pages of the tabloids, I guess the only thing worse than being talked about, is not being talked about.
Finally, I used the above quote from my last blog to illustrate not only the Bizarro World of the McCanns, but the condescending attitude of those on here who claim to support the McCanns. Does a heart surgeon perform the same operation on the next patient, regardless of the fact that the new patient has entirely different symptoms?
