I am blown away by the support we’ve received in the last 24 hours, raising over $12K and counting with the GoFundMe we started so that Turtleboy can continue to be the voice for abused children. I was so beaten down by this that I was prepared to just remove the blog in question because the time and money it would cost my family to fight this order wasn’t worth it. But in doing so I would’ve silenced the voices of Ashley St. Angelo’s two children who have been traumatized by the actions of their father.
Judge Melissa Darigan urged me to give up a harassment prevention order we have and get the DA’s office to drop the warrant against Ashley St. Angelo for violating it, which exists to protect us from this lunatic, and in return she will drop this current harassment order. This would’ve been a lot easier for me, but you all clearly want me to fight for free speech and to be the voice of abused children, so I won’t be removing anything.
Thanks to your generous donations I have retained prominent First Amendment attorney Marc Randazza. According to his research he actually believes that Judge Darigan is a “conscientious” and fair judge. That hasn’t been my experience at all, but he’s got a good track record so I trust him.
In the meantime the Portland BLM scammer we exposed last week (Hamdia Ahmed), who raised at least $50K using GoFundMe for “social justice” causes she pocketed the money for, is trying to get our GoFundMe shut down. She’s using her following of over 50,000 people on Instagram and Twitter, misrepresenting who I am, and lying in order to get people to report our legitimate GFM.
The irony of a person who used the death of George Floyd and the GoFundMe platform to scam donors for a lawsuit that she voluntarily dropped, urging people to report a legitimate GoFundMe, is off the charts.
She didn’t just call me a white supremacist, she called everyone who donated a white supremacist too.
“The more people report the account, the less likely he will get hold of these funds that white supremacists have been donating to support him. The more people report his page, the more likely they will ban him.”
That’s just what they do now. Her confidence that I will get banned is indicative of a person who is used to getting their way and using online bullying to silence those who dare criticize them. She is encouraging fraud:
“You just have to make a statement stating that he is a white supremacist.”
Giving them the playbook for how to lie in order to manipulate the platform in order to have our fundraiser removed.
“He is raising funds in order to attack a trans woman now after she took him to court. A judge order him to stop harassing her and making writing false stories on his page. He isn’t a real journalist. He is a white supremacist.”
This person is a college graduate, and the walking poster child for the failures of affirmative action. The Judge never ordered me to “stop making writing false stories on his page.” That’s not even remotely close to being a sentence. If Hamdia were an intelligent person who was familiar with the First Amendment she would know that a Judge cannot order a journalist or a private citizen to stop posting on their blog. But Hamdia is just an unemployed scam artist who is mad that someone finally exposed her.
People like Hamdi Ahmed get away with making up ridiculous lies about people, like calling them “well known white supremacists,” because their racial, gender and religious identity give them privileges other people don’t have. No one ever challenges them, and when they do this is how they try to silence you. Look at all these defamatory tweets:
In true scam artist form she used the fact that we exposed her as an opportunity to scam some more.
Just say the words “white supremacy,” present yourself as a victim, make up a story about an imaginary 22 year old woman, say that she needs $1,000 to avoid becoming homeless, provide zero evidence, link your Venmo, and woke white people will donate.
But I’m not nearly as concerned with them coming after my social media accounts as I am that Hamdia Ahmed is trying to silence children who were victims of domestic abuse. This is 16 year old Marissa St Angelo screaming out for help.
I spoke up for her and exposed the monster who was harming her. Hamdia Ahmed wants Marissa St Angelo to suffer in silence and continue to be abused. Hamdia supports a child abuser.
Marissa’s older sister Holly also ran away as a teenager because she was abused. Back in September she came on the live show to talk about her experiences at the 29:30 mark. Around the 40:30 mark she said that her father has threatened to kill her, her sister, and her mother if they spoke out about the ongoing abuse.
“She’s just so scared. I was scared my father would get ahold of me and I believe that’s how she feels.”
“My relationship was permanently destroyed the moment he put his hands on me. As a kid I knew that it wasn’t right, I was just scared to speak out against it. Same reason my mother and sister are – he always just threatened to kill us. All the time. If we opened our mouths he threatened that he would kill one of us.”
Hamdia Ahmed wants to silence this girl’s voice. She thinks it’s OK that these children were abused and lived in fear that they would be killed if they mustered up the bravery to speak out.
We must never give in to this level of evil.
