Thought you should know.
To which I replied, not for the first time:
Yeah, I know about it. I'm trying to ignore the pustules. Just another Kerodin koolaid drinker.
Well, it is a very convincing argument. There is a lot of chatter against you in email.
Curious, I asked,
What is convincing about it?
You don't get it? Thousands of people are hitting that gunwalker page for a reason.
To which I replied:
Because of the domain name is all. Otherwise it would be the same few dozen hits. Pretty smart on their part. I have people screaming in both my ears that I shouldn't engage them lest I prove this is all about my "ego." I am being blamed for creating the "Kerodin" beast and "demeaning" myself as leader for attacking his logical fallacies, moral inconsistencies and pretensions of leadership of the Three Percent movement. All because of my "ego." (Sigh.)
You know, the first guy to attack me on the Internet as "'Red Mike' Vanderboegh" was Martin Lindstedt, a Missouri neo-Nazi, self-described "modern militiaman," claimed Identity "pastor" and, wait for it, convicted child molester. You ought to look up his screeds about me. They are legendary for rhetorical pus and vomit, so this is nothing new.
Look, I am busy enough as it is. "Kerodin" will eventually self-implode -- probably as the result of over-reach*, discovery under oath in a court case or a FOIA request -- and in any case is a tertiary side-show of the main event. From the rumors, anybody could make him go away with a simple but thorough private investigator's background check, something I lack the funds to do. But when that happens, and it will happen, the deluded folks who embrace him will run from him like the amoral plague-carrier he is. However, just at the moment I have bigger fish to fry. If others want to defend me that is their business and I am grateful, but it is evident from the friends I have lost and the precious time and effort that has been wasted already that anything I do will be counterproductive.
* An example of overreach just might be using a Project Gunwalker link merely to defame me. Matter of fact, that's a perfect example of overreach. He's more interested in attacking me than anything else, including the long-term interests of what they call "Team Freedom."
And, to quote the distinguished Alabama philosopher Forrest Gump, "that's all I have to say about that."
