Please note that most of this post was written prior to the FreeKate Facebook page “hacking.” I held off on publishing this until I sent information to the IRC Sheriff’s Office. The post has been edited to reflect new information. Also note that I have redacted the names of the former Freekate admins at the request of several of them, as they fear for retaliation at the hands of the Hunt family and their supporters. This is another post showing how #FreeKate efforts shows similarity to liberal movements.-Matt
One thing that liberals seem to love is to control the message. Usually, that means that they seek to limit the ability of others to discuss important matters. If you recall, there have been many efforts to reinstate the (un)fairness doctrine, or install something like it, to prevent Conservative Talk radio hosts from taking to the airwaves. They have proposed placing limits on what bloggers can say. They have, in fact, brought it up again. And, they will even attack supporters if they “leave the reservation.” Remember how Bob Woodward, once an icon of liberal journalism, was treated once he spoke out? Needless to say, in liberal land, there is no room for dissent. And, as a “creature” of liberalism, #FreeKate is no exception.
Here is a single example of how supporters are looked at if they become a “problem”…
To give a glimpse of how Kelly Hunt Smith likes donors, here is a screencap…
Again, donors help their cause, but are treated with disdain.
A significant feature of liberalism is a lack of moral principal. To liberals, the truth is a malleable thing that can be beaten into whatever shape is needed at that moment. There is no real truth-no moral center, no absolutes. As a Christian, I can say that it’s absolutely wrong to have sex with kids. It was wrong yesterday. It is wrong today. And, it will still be wrong tomorrow, and a century from now. It’s an eternal truth that adults should not exploit children for their own pleasure-even if they manipulate the kid into thinking it was their idea, or even acceptable. For most of us, there is such a thing as a moral absolute. We have a permanent set of ideas from a God that loves us, and wishes to protect us from unhealthy things. It’s something that’s bigger than ourselves, and we try to work at living that way. We often fall short, but we try.
For far too many liberals however, there is nothing bigger than themselves. Without a moral center, they can justify lying, threats, and almost any level of hate needed to get where they are going. Something might have been “kinda-sorta wrong” yesterday, but today, it’s OK, within some arbitrary limits. Tomorrow, it might be perfectly fine and unrestricted. In fact, it might all be acceptable, provided that one is not caught. If one is caught, then the persons responsible for pointing out the facts are blamed, attacked, and smeared. (If you recall, the bloggers that “caught” Anthony Weiner in his original sexting scandal were accused of “hacking” him) Without a central set of moral concepts, they stumble from sin to sin, deceiving, and being deceived. Everything is OK, with the notable exception of disagreeing with them. Lacking the rudder provided by a functional moral code, the ends justify the means. In the case of #FreeKate,the end is sex with minors, the means is smearing any opposition as “hate.” In other words, they are liberals.
And how does #FreeKate respond to truth? Since they cannot refute it, they attack the people that present it. Support Honesty, myself, R.S. McCain and anyone else that has presented actual facts about that case are “haters.” They won’t debate what we’ve said. They’ll call us “liars,” yet cannot cite a single example of a lie being told. They just attack us as “haters.”
In fact, Support Honesty has gone as far as to publish this…
We have reached out to Kaitlyn Hunt’s attorney’s office through their website, as well as multiple emails to the Hunt family themselves, as well as several open invitations extended to the Hunt family and their supporters online to give opportunity for anyone to correct the record on anything on this site that factually inaccurate. We welcome anyone interested in fact-checking this site and providing documentation proving where the content here is mistaken.
Despite receiving no response at all from the Hunt family or their attorney to correct the record, Kelley Hunt Smith has on at least two occasions accused this site of lying without backing that claim up with any evidence. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org and I welcome any corrections Mrs. Hunt Smith, her family or her supporters can back up with something more substantial than “because Kelley says so”
I do not expect anyone to believe anything on this site simply at my insistence; I provide references to all source material for each of the facts I list here for this reason. I encourage everyone to do their own homework, review the relevant documents and the statements made by the Hunt family, apply critical thought and come up with your own conclusions.
We back up facts with solid documented proof. We think it would be awesome if Kelley Hunt Smith would do the same.
Of course, there has been no response. If #FreeKate used facts, they would lose. Reality is against them, so they attack the people that present it. Reality is the ultimate enemy of any liberal movement, and#FreeKate. I’ll extend the same offer, but since they have no documented evidence, I don’t see me getting a response.
Just like the Tea Party is racist, and Conservatives are greedy and evil, liberals attack their enemies so their followers won’t listen to them-and realize that the liberals have been lying to them all along. In this regard, #FreeKate is no different.
To follow up on my prior post about accusing the accusers, here is another screencap indicating that Kelly Hunt Smith, Kaitlyn Hunt’s mother, told admins at the FreeKate Facebook page to publish personal information on someone who pointed out facts about the case…
And, it appears that even some of the FreeKate admins thought that it wasn’t a good idea, but it was done anyway. Instead of refuting what Jeanette Victoria said, they decided to get “dirt” on her and publish it.
Here is one of the FreeKate admins reporting about how she went to Facebook pages critical of FreeKate, and attempted to have their comments deleted, and the users suspended…
Here is an example of how the #FreeKate supporters were able to get an entire Facebook group suspended.
Again, there is no effort to spread their message here, or actually promote their own point of view. They were actively preventing other people from sharing theirs. When we see liberal groups shouting down opponents, or using thugs to disrupt peaceful demonstrations, or public events, we see the comparisons. Remember this from the Texas Abortion debates…
Yes, those are pro-abortion protesters trying to drown the speaker out with the call, “Hail Satan.”
Or, you can read up on how liberals heckled school children for singing “God Bless the USA” in a public park.
Or how union goons disrupted a Special Olympics event.
Is it wrong to keep Special Olympics participants from being congratulated by the governor? It is if you have no morals!
And this from earlier this week, Wyblog tells us how some political candidates aren’t allowed to speak.
Just like any liberal run activity, only the #FreeKate narrative is permitted, and all others will be silenced!
As I have volumes of information that I am still going through, I found additional information that shows that Kelley Hunt Smith was active in “digging up dirt” on the victim’s mother…
Note that they were contemplating using a school district staff person to assist them? Now, if that school district staff went through educational records in order to dig up “dirt,” would that not constitute a breach of privacy? Or, do the ends justify the means? To clarify, at the time of this writing, it is unclear what level of assistance was given, if any.
And, of course, even mentioning the facts of this case makes one a “target.” In a feeble attempt to intimidate your humble corespondent, Rachael Carson Zerbe, the suspected author of the “Jailbait Manifesto,” has decided that commenting on a national news story, or on publicly posted manifestos, constitutes harassment…
You see, #FreeKate supporters can harass, attack, insult, prevent others from speaking out, “dig up dirt,” and what not. However, if someone simply discusses the case, and particularity the facts of the case, they are suddenly guilty of “harassment.” Again, this is a typical liberal tactic. Instead of promoting a cause, or stating their case, they seek to silence anyone who discusses the actual facts of it. Are we to assume that to Rachael Carson Zerbe, the First Amendment applies only to her, and perhaps to people that agree with her? She can say anything she likes, but if one quotes and discusses it, and worse, disagrees with it, they are guilty of a “crime?” At any rate, nice try, but the last time I looked, Freedom of Speech applied to all American’s, not just you.
Note that in my communications with the IRC Sheriff’s office, Rachael, and her complaints of “harassment,” were never a topic of conversation.
In an additional turn, A different tactic has emerged-one I had not yet seen out of the #FreeKate crowd. One claimed supporter is now threatening the professional careers of people that speak out against adults having sex with minors. Apparently, Summer Koryo has been targeted…
This would not be the first time that someone’s professional career has been threatened by a leftist. After all, if they have little to no morals, and have to silence dissent, this kind of threat might be expected. However, to get someone’s professional license pulled, they are going to have to lie quite a bit. Given the track record of #FreeKate, I don’t see lying being an obstacle.
Frankly, Summer doesn’t seem at all alarmed, nor do I think she needs to be. I’ve seen this tactic used before, in other situations, but I see no professional licensing body pulling a practitioner’s license for publicly opposing sex with minors.
In the end, like any other liberal movement, #FreeKate seems expends far more time and energy trying to attack and silence people that discuss them than promoting anything substantial, other than making it legal for adults to have sex with minors. And frankly, they are even having a hard time doing that.
I, for one, refuse to be silenced.
