Cancer Truthers Become Kiddie Porn Defenders

After a period of relative silence in the wake of the Cancer Truthers post, several proud participants in the @Shoq Twitter brigade have fallen all over themselves to attack the cat again over The William Talley Burn Notice. Because for some reason, whenever I blog about a man who has pleaded guilty to possession of kiddie porn, it’s all @Shoq’s fault. Because everything is always his fault. That’s how scapegoating works.

These slideshows demonstrate the bizarre double-standards of people so obsessed with hating someone that they defend the indefensible. The first shows how we got here:

Remember when an “#AbusiveFuck” hashtag trended because @Shoq had left his cyber-girlfriend a nasty voicemail eight months before? William Talley is an actual, real, not-imaginary abusive fuck. Every one of the hundreds of pornographic images of children found in his possession was a genuine abuse by an abusive fuck. Many of the people who propelled that hashtag now excuse Talley’s abusive fuckery and say it isn’t something to talk about, or at least something that shouldn’t be discussed on Twitter, because…well, because he isn’t @Shoq. See how that works?

New @Shoq attack sock puppet accounts have appeared, and old ones have reactivated. All receive retweets from characters familiar to anyone who kept up with The Late Unpleasantness In The #P2 Hashtag. Talley and his Unite Blue friends and sock puppet accounts have joined in the fun, retweeting links to Pastebin.com, a site where users can leave linkable, untraceable anonymous text documents. These links purport to “prove” @Shoq is the REAL abuser.

But to the Pedophile Defenders, Talley’s kiddie porn is not abuse. I am not exaggerating. Remember how Milt Shook said @Shoq was a serial abuser of women in his blog last year but presented no evidence? Now, Milt seems to accuse him of directing a defamation campaign against William Talley. Milt blithely dismisses all the evidence I have presented from the Nashville District Attorney’s website, and says my questions about Talley’s online activities and the circumstances of his 2005 arrest go too far.

Because my blogging about a pedophile who has been gaslighting progressive Twitter circles is somehow happening because @Shoq and I are obsessed with Milt Shook. Really, that’s what he’s saying — I could never invent such nonsense to put in his mouth for him. Here is a slideshow of Milt’s tweets with a woman who wants you to believe that everything @Shoq does is really about her boyfriend’s ugly divorce:

At the height of the “#AbusiveFuck” tweeting last September, Darshann Padilla (@HoneyBadgerLA in the slideshow) called Matt Edelstein @Shoq a pedophile — without evidence. Now she seems to get along just fine with actual, real, not-imaginary convicted pedophiles. And so the Cancer Truthers become the kiddie porn defenders.

Darshann’s empty legal threats remind me of the more inane moments in the Aaron Walker saga, since she is projecting the consequences of her own actions onto Edelstein in a very similar way that Breitbart goons projected the results of their idiotic behavior onto Brett Kimberlin. In fact, with the help of Darshann’s friends, Breitbart.com blogger and professional rape apologist Lee Stranahan made a sustained effort to link @Shoq with Brett Kimberlin in the dumbest conspiracy theory of 2012.

That imaginary @Shoq conspiracy is more real to Milt, Darshann, and the rest of Talley’s Pedophile Defenders than William Talley’s guilty plea. They have rationalized away the evidence from the District Attorney’s website, so they are blind to Talley’s evidentiary appeals and his pedophile advocacy. William Talley will finally be sentenced on May 29 for having hundreds of sexual images of children in his possession, though. Just how long does anyone think this charade can last? And how do they not see what they look like?

But I am content to see Milt Shook take part in pedophile advocacy on Twitter and in his blog. Darshann and her friends can all line up over there with the kiddie porn guy, too; it’s a free country. None of them are going to tell me their behavior is “progressive,” however, because there’s nothing progressive about pedophilia. So let them all hate @Shoq so much that they stand with a sex offender who will be sentenced four weeks from tomorrow.

They will probably blame @Shoq for that, too, presenting exactly the same amount of evidence as always: none.

Socialize this!
