Hampstead Truth Mobbing
Theo van Gogh was a Dutch film director who made a documentary called Submission which was critical of Islamic theocratic regimes. In 2004 he was shot and stabbed to death by a Muslim extremist in a frenzied attack on a busy Amsterdam street in front of dozens of horrified passers-by. The killer decided to murder van Gogh as punishment for blasphemy. According to the witnesses, van Gogh’s last words were directed at his assailant and they were: “Can’t we talk about this?” Can’t we talk about this? Surely that is a reasonable request in any civilization built on logic and calm discourse, as ours is supposed to be. But the answer is always a resounding: “No!” Sadly the same barbarism can be found within the society supposedly fighting to improve the quality of life for people around the world, especially children. Nobody has been shot or stabbed in the Truth movement… yet. I do wonder though if such a crime could eventually happen. Unbelievable a fourth front has now opened up in this league of loathing which is behind my recent troll attacks. The latest belligerent to join the “Hate Ben Coalition” is Sheva Burton, somebody I once interviewed on HPANWO Radio, see: http://hpanwo-radio.blogspot.co.uk/2013/03/programme-38-podcast-sheva-burton.html. The reason she has turned against me is because I interviewed Angela Power-Disney too, see: http://hpanwo-radio.blogspot.co.uk/2018/02/programme-271-podcast-angela-power.html.
The background to this conflict is extremely nebulous, but it concerns the Hampstead child abuse scandal which Angela and I bring up in the interview. As I explain in the interview, this is an issue into which I came in late and by the time I had, those who believed it and those who considered it a hoax had already diverged into a pair of warring factions. It was like walking in on a barroom brawl and expecting somebody to explain to you how the fight started. I merely posted on one of Belinda McKenzie’s videos about Hampstead: “Hi Belinda. How are you?” This is because Belinda is an old friend and I haven’t seen her for a while. We have disagreed vehemently on some matters but we are today on fairly good terms. The result was that I received a broadside of insults in response from the “Hoaxstead” tendency. When Sheva Burton posted this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NCkqG9pNybs, I felt deeply annoyed at Sheva’s ignorance, impulsiveness and prejudice, so I posted in the comments box: “Hi Sheva. I don’t agree that what Belinda and Angela have said is a hoax. I stand by what I said about Hollie Greig, but this is something different. I hope that clarifies my position for you.” I assumed we could then enter into a debate over the evidence for or against the Hampstead case, but instead Sheva responded: “Yes, Ben. It clarifies that you happily support liars, scammers, frauds and despicable protectors of child rapists, molesters, and those who share images of child abuse, too. Thank you.” So from that I gathered Sheva was not interested in entering into an intellectual discussion. There was no point replying so I simply blocked her. Once again, we have a Truth mob. I no longer feel shocked when these tedious and petty little comments-box-conflicts break out; however I really do wish it would stop. Are there not more important issues at stake? We have truly hit peak-troll and this climax shows no sign of decreasing. I was having an email conversation on this matter with somebody and was lamenting about all the meaningless infighting that has poisoned the UFO/paranormal/conspiracy theory community and he told me: “I’m afraid that’s just human nature.” If this is true then it means it is human nature for us inevitably to enter the New World Order. We have somehow evolved a suicide gene in our DNA. This is a terrible reality for me to face, if it is indeed reality. It would mean that everything I’ve done with HPANWO has been a waste of time. I hope it is not reality.
