On calling people savages

Over the last few days I have seen numerous references referring to Africans as savages. Posts on social media that have claimed they are uncivilised, a 1000 years behind the West and incapable of developing. That they have no art, no culture and without our colonial intervention would have nothing today worth sharing with the rest of the world. I have been told that because their history was not written down, until us Europeans came along., it is irrelevant. One post claimed that as there were no paved roads in Africa until Europeans came to Africa they should be grateful for our interventions.

When my Ghanaian sister in law looks at Europe she sees a developed thriving continent that she envies .. or rather she envies the stuff we can buy. She is disgusted by the way that we treat our elderly. Our development has cost us, it has cost us our ability to care for those who are most vulnerable at the end of their lives. She reads stories of old people dying alone or abused in care homes and she asks me;
Why are we so "savage" to the elderly in our communities?
Why do we not respect them more?
And I have to explain that because we want to buy the things we have, because western society expects us to put the ability to contribute to our own greater good above all else, we have to out source the care of our elderly to others and that sometimes this goes wrong.

Who are the savages?

Women, social media and abuse 

In the last few days I have attracted a stalker.  The sort that purely sets up accounts to throw abuse in one persons direction. It has also set up a stalking account on Gab and I know that it is spending time try to access other social media sites where my accounts are locked and private. This troll was triggered by a blog that I did on a young lady who has made some dubious claims about a Muslim policeman and a young woman who may or may not have reported her for stalking. 

If you are a man or woman on social media and you stick your next over the parapet you can expect to get abuse thrown at you. If you are a woman you are vulnerable to abuse that is violent and sexual in nature. A few years ago Joshua Bonehill set up an account in my daughter name and accused me of being a paedophile, he eventually got sent to jail, but not for the abuse that he threw at the everyday bods on social media  – that got him community service – but rather Anti Semitic comments aimed at an MP. 

This troll calls himself Thomas Stewart .. he has four accounts on twitter, all reported but not yet permanently suspended  –  @tommyportsmouth @tommyportsmout1 @tommyprtsmth and @prtsmthtom82 – all blocked. He also has a Gab account which he links to in his twitter posts, this is where he posts the majority of his abuse, because on Gab it’s almost impossible to get an account suspended. 

He has mined my blog for details, taken a photo to use as his Gab profile:

I am not going to share all of the posts on here, I will share a list of the content. 

  • Called me a coal burner (one presumes that’s because I had an African husband)
  • Called my daughter a niglet ( a derogative term for a mixed race child)
  • Accused me of raping young men in Calais 
  • Accused me of being a member of ISIS
  • Accused me of causing my father death because I had an African Husband 
  • Told me to kill myself (multiple times)
  • Called me a rancid Cunt 
  • Told me I am aids infested 
  • Suggested I go and get some FGM 
  • Called me a dumb fuck whore (multiple times)
  • Called me a nigger slut 
  • Told me to throw my nigger niglet in the sea 
  • Informed me I am shit mother 
  • Constantly refers to my ex as a “third world nigger”
  • Called me a rancid witch with an aid infested mouth 
  • Accused my father of raping me 
  • Accused me of being a paedophile 
  • Posted details of my partners web site 
  • Posted details of my work place 
  • Posted details of what it thinks is my address 

The only post I will share is the last one. It gives you a flavour of the rest,


85 posts in three days, all of which contain a variation on the themes above. 

I am 46, I am secure in my life. I have a wonderful family, a great job that I love, I live in a beautiful place and I have some good friends. I know that everything that it writes is a lie and I know that no one who knows me would believe any of it.

But what if I was young and vulnerable, what if I did not have bags of confidence and a very good sense of me. It should be far easier to prevent this type of “freedom of speech”. The police find it difficult to tackle and according to recent stories in the the press it rather depends on which police force deals with your complaint as to wether it is taken seriously.

As women we should not have to lock down all our private information on social media, we should be able to write a blog about our parents, our marriages or our daughters and not expect to have this information used by those who want to abuse and if we are abused we should have a police force that has clear guidelines on what to do and who takes it seriously. 

Sunday 

Update .. its set up another Gab account in my name .. to give you a flavour of its content.  Apparently we are on stage 3 .. 


 

How to get 5 mins of altright fame 

You might have seen this photo of Jonaya Fenessa English after the march in Manchester by the rump of the EDL , assorted BNP members and the remains of the North West Infidels (those not in jail) 

This gave Jonaya her initial five mins of fame. Lots of comments about a mixed race girl attending a march supposedly attended by racists. (Remember that anyone can be a racist) she lapped it up. Reset her social media, new personal FB page , new political FB page “theinsurgentsonline”.

However this 5mins of fame has led to a need for more. So what to do. 

Claim a stifling of freedom of speech, make is about Muslims stifling that speech, claim they are denying her a place at university. 





The timeline 

Four days ago she received an email from the campus liaison police officer. The police officer wanted to contact her regarding an harassment and stalking complaint (note no mention of twitter or the person who made the accusation)

             

Jonaya has admitted that she has not spoken to the police officer and has no idea what the complaint was about:

What she did do was make an immediate complaint to the IPPC .. who sent her a holding email ..


  

Now it gets interesting. She spent four days retweeting her story (don’t forget she admits she has not spoken to the police and therefore has no idea what the complaint is about) she then goes all out to make this about a Muslim girl and a Muslim policeman.

 

Yesterday she made a video to tell her side of a story, although she has no idea who made the complaint and what is it about. She knows her audience and she so she made sure to emphasise the “Muslim” policeman threatening a non Muslim woman because of a tweet about Muslims. Is this true? Well there is no proof that it is, but it makes a good story! 

She tweeted a picture of the policeman ..

And as I predicted earlier in the evening she got what she was aiming for .. 5 mins of fame via Rebel Media and Tommy Robinson:

 

Come today and out come the usual suspects who jump on any bandwagon as long as it involves blaming Muslims for something bad .. just remember when you read these tweets from Hopkins that she has no idea why the policeman wanted to speak to Jonaya, because Jonaya herself has no idea. She refused to contact the policeman concerned. She has threatened the policeman concerned, shared his picture with her rabid followers. She should remember that  threatening a policeman is a criminal offence. 


Let’s not forget Raheem Kassam and Breitbart .. 


Or the cellar dwelling Prison Planet ..

And there we have it a full house .. Rebel Media and Tommy Robinson, Katie Hopkins, Paul Watson and Raheem Kassam – and not one of them know why the police wanted to speak to the young woman concerned – because she doesn’t! 

As a footnote I emailed the police officer concerned last night to warn him that his name was being shared on twitter with serious accusations being made. 


She then lied and claimed that I had reported her for hate speech .. so I know she’s a liar! 

I have no idea of the truth of the matter, but then neither does Jonaya, Katie Hopkins, the staff at Rebel Media and Tommy Robinson, Raheem Kassam and the 1000’s of twitter users that have lapped this up and come on my time line to ask if I support FGM , stoning Homosexuals and Sharia Law. 

Twitter is a powerful way of sharing ideas, it’s also a way of sharing hate, stoking up rumours and getting your 5 mins of fame. 

And now, confirmation that it’s an ongoing investigation and nothing to do with a tweet.

Katie meanwhile is doubling down on her hate. She claims the above statement is a lie and has turned to bullying the victim in this case,


Katie Hopkins is no journalist, she is a hate monger .. for money!
