Once again, I’d really love to put this #FreeKate story to bed, but the Hunts and their supporters simply refuse to stop blaming, and/or threatening people. Today was a banner day in #FreeKate land, and they went gaga in terms of blame. The latest victim is John Walsh, of America’s Most Wanted fame. Here is some accomplishments of John Walsh after the kidnapping and brutal murder of his young son by a pedophile…
Following the crime, the Walsh family founded the Adam Walsh Child Resource Center, a non-profit organization dedicated to legislative reform. The centers, originally located in West Palm Beach, Florida; Columbia, South Carolina; Orange County, California; and Rochester, New York; merged with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC), where John Walsh serves on the board of directors.
The Walsh family organized a political campaign to help missing and exploited children. Despite bureaucratic and legislative problems, John and Revé’s efforts eventually led to the creation of the Missing Children Act of 1982 and the Missing Children’s Assistance Act of 1984.
Today, Walsh continues to testify before Congress and state legislatures on crime, missing children and victims’ rights issues. His latest efforts include lobbying for a Constitutional amendment for victims’ rights.
The Adam Walsh Child Protection and Safety Act (Pub.L. 109–248) was signed into law by U.S. President George W. Bush on July 27, 2006 following a two-year journey through the United States Congress and was intensely lobbied for by Walsh and the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. Primarily, it focuses on a national sex offender registry, tough penalties for not registering as a sex offender following release into society, and access by citizens to state websites that track sex offenders.
By the late 1980s, many malls, department stores, supermarkets, and other such retailers have adopted what is known as a “Code Adam,” a movement first made by Wal Mart stores in the southeastern United States. A “Code Adam” is announced when a child is missing in a store or if a child is found by a store employee or patron. If the child is lost or missing, all doors are to be locked and a store employee is posted at every exit, while a description of the child is generally broadcast over the intercom system. “Code Adam” as a term has become synonymous with a missing child, and is a predecessor to an “Amber Alert,” which serves as a system of broadcast-driven community notification.
In other words, John Walsh took the tragic murder of his son, and helped to create many legal safeguards that have likely saved countless children since. But, according to members of the Kate’s Fight Facebook page, Walsh is the villain that is ultimately responsible for Kaitlyn Hunt’s plight. Here are some screenshots from some Kate’s Fight insiders from earlier today…
Please note that at the time of this writing, as far as my sources can tell, these posts are still there, even 12 hours after their posting. What does it say about #FreeKate that they would smear and blame on of the most famous child advocates in the US? I would remind people that movements like this need external enemies. They need to distract from the inconsistencies in their own narratives, so what better to have a great “evil” that is oppressing them. In this case, Walsh is just the latest in a long line.
Again, in the interest of lashing out at enemies, real or imagined, they are also talking about going after the basketball coach that initially reported the illegal activity…
Teachers, doctors, nurses, coaches, social workers, and anyone else who works with kids are “mandated reporters.” Please pay close attention to the word, “mandated.” You see, if a “mandated” reporter suspects that child abuse is going on, they are MANDATED to report said abuse. It’s not an option, or a maybe, or an alternative, it’s MANDATED! Getting the importance of that word? Under Florida law, 14 year-olds cannot consent for sex, and adults are not allowed to have sex with minors, so the coach was MANDATED to report this activity. So, in other words, the Hunts are looking to punish a coach because the coach obeyed the law. They aren’t going to get very far with that, as you can’t punish people for following the law. “Reverse-counter-negligence” is not something that any court will recognize. In fact, the coach could lose not only their job, but career, if they did not report the abuse. But, it appears, by history, that the Hunts have a difficult time understanding legal mandates, don’t they?
I could go on some more, as we have screenshots of them wanting to retaliate against the local school board, and one member was even trying to track down the information on the victim’s church.
It seems that these people are dead set on lashing out at anyone, rather than look at their own behavior. And, the longer this goes on, the more outlandish the claims become. Given the death threats, threats to “ruin” people, and just picking “enemies” at random, I can see them getting themselves arrested at some point.
But, of course, that will be someone else’s fault as well!
In related news, Ali Akbar and Robert Stacy McCain (who also has a related post), along with a call from a former Free Kate Facebook admin, had a rather devastating podcast this evening. It’s embedded here for your listening pleasure.
The Conservative Hideout does not recommend direct contact with the Hunts. I condemn any attempts to “dox,” harass, or threaten them in any way. We have the truth on our side, there are no need for thug tactics.
