Recently, I have received a pair of messages which have confounded me. One shockingly expressed concern for their personal safety as regards to myself, and the other recommended I undertake anger management classes. So, I hope I can once again set the record straight, please:
1.) Yes, I have a "colourful" past. Yes, I actually used to physically fight other male Human Beings for a living.
2.) No, I have never threatened anyone up here with anything, nor have I ever or would ever I injure anyone not trying to injure me or my loved ones first.
3.) Here is just a partial list of what has been perpetrated against me up here on our Flow:
I have been blatantly and illegally publicly defamed.
I have had my property repeatedly vandalized.
I have had a note pinned to my garage asking if my camp is insured, because "...sometimes they burn to the ground."
I have been the victim of smear campaigns by at least some on the GFA board which included the wholly untrue claims that I have “brain cancer”, and that I am carrying on conversations with disembodied voices in my head.
I have had my personal property repeatedly stolen, with the board doing absolutely nothing about it. Sometimes, board members have done the stealing.
I have put myself at physical risk by being the only GFA Member who stood up and actually took action by involving the Troopers last year when an illegal bump stock was being used on our Flow.
I have twice been told by the former GFA President Andrew W Cullen that if I did not amend my behaviour as they wished, a group of men would pay me a visit and "... not be polite about it ...”.
I have received an anonymized e-mail which consisted of only an image of a gasoline can.
And this list goes on and on and on. It really is I who should feel threatened or frightened, isn't it?
What these individuals have never done and will never be able to do is make me angry. I am absolutely outraged by William Wesley Fibiger's outrageous conduct, which is willingly enabled by the usually completely complicit silence of most of the currently sitting GFA board - an equally outrageous choice. But, angry? No. Innocent children being poisoned by the only water they have access to makes me angry. Knowing that no matter how hard my team and I work, there are still thousands of victims of Human Trafficking whom we are unable to rescue makes me angry. The pettiness of the GFA board is wholly incapable of making me angry, but remains absolutely outrageous. IMHO, ofc.
Just because I am absolutely outraged by the baloney we are presently being forced to endure up here, that does not mean I am angry with anyone up here. I simply let everyone live their life peacefully, and I ask to be allowed to live mine in peace, too - without being a repeated crime victim, please.
Is this really too much for me to ask?
If There Is Nothing To Hide, Simply Stop Hiding.
(and stopping the deceiving would be kinda cool, too, please.)
Together, we really CAN do MUCH better.
Thank you very much for your DEEPLY appreciated
ongoing support in 2020 and beyond!! :-)
