    It’s a rather sad and tawdry story. People thought they knew what it was about, but in the end it was really about a group of sadistic, closeted homosexual men who would go to just about any length not to be “found out”…. And this isn’t gossip, it is fact.

    On every level, it made sense – ‘politically’, at least, for both the closet homosexuals, and the bulldyke “feminist” (scare quotes are not optional here) women who “loved” them, and needed them for their pathetic careers, to smear the woman whose life they invaded and raped, and who knew many truths, the closet isseues being just one, by referring to her as a “man” – repeatedly.

    Of course, this had nothing to do with reality. No one in real life would or had ever thought any of the things mentally ill propagandists had set their minds to smear across the wasteland of the internet. In fact, this woman was so feminine and fragile, and such a lover of beauty, it was indeed ‘queer’ – in this world – if queer means FEMININE (which is what all true poetry IS). Very far o far indeed from the butch boot in a human face forever fascism taken on by her contemporary colleagues, you can see how, indeed!, it would stand out oddly, and need to be ‘destroyed’ by butch closet cases “homophobic” (basically people who are scared of themselves for being gay) because it did not ‘communicate’ to the current conditioned masculinist nazi mass of men and women alike – just like the IDF!!!…. Enjoy the toxic wasteland your practice has led to. I have mentioned many times over the years what these practices inevitably lead to. It made people oh so angry….Sadly, I was right.

      I believe it was Jean Genet who said you can’t kill an idea. Let’s have a song, dedicate it to the good citizens private army of thought police.
