Macaulay and Brett Barnes do NOT join Wade Robson’s lawsuit. WHAT BRETT REALLY SAYS
The flood of comments following mentioning Brett Barnes’s reaction to Robson’s complaint made me change plans and demanded a post. First of all it was necessary to collect in one place the tweets from Brett Barnes and other Michael’s friends expressing their attitude to Robson’s lawsuit and secondly, there was also some news to share.
The collection of tweets will be far from full and will contain the things which are just close at hand, but even these will give you the general idea.
But first let me explain the headline of the post.
The reason for it is a strange discovery I made a few days ago when I came across the following headline:
The discovery was made when I was innocently googling for the names of Brett Barnes and Wade Robson and all of a sudden this news came in the top ten results of my search, and to be honest gave me a real start. Whaaat? These two guys join Wade Robson’s lawsuit???
A second later I began to realize that something was not quite right about the headline.
It referred to the joy of certain “haters” and therefore implied that the story was written by Michael’s supporters, however being one of them I know that our reaction to the above would be totally different. None of us would rush to write about haters’ joy as it is a matter of least concern for us. MJ haters rejoice at every lie told about Michael and since lies are innumerable their whole life must be non-stop fun, so what’s the point of writing about it?
All this flashed through my mind within a couple of seconds before I pressed the link to see the details of the story. And you know where it took me? It took me to the Topix MJ forum where this headline was posted just as a title, with no text accompanying it and no date attached to it ether. The latter point turned out to be the crucial one as I learned from the comment that followed.
The comment said:
- Yesterday Yeah right. HAPPY APRIL FOOLS !
Oh my God, so the false news was posted on April 1st and this is just another of the million nasty hoaxes MJ haters are so terribly keen on?
What a mean thing to do! First of all, the hoax has already got into the top ten Google search results for the names of Brett Barnes and Wade Robson, and second, people these days rarely read full stories. Their glance just flips over the headlines and this is enough for many to learn the latest “news”. The result is ignorance and misinformation as the majority simply don’t bother to look behind what is lying on the surface or is pushed to their attention by force.
Considering the trend we can expect that millions of people believed the nasty headline and have no idea that it was an April Fools hoax. The date is simply not there and even five days later Google doesn’t give it and just says that it was posted “five days ago”. How many of us will make the calculations and deduce that the “news” goes back to April the 1st?
Very few will, while a million others will continue to chew up the lie.
But is this hoax worthy of attention at all?
Yes, it is and very much so.
With every new day garbage like this collects into a bigger pile, creating a huge mess around Jackson capable to totally drown people in its lies. In the sea of misinformation people lose track of the truth and are eventually unable to tell facts from fiction.
Learning the truth becomes a full-time job and if you don’t do it on a daily basis, you are doomed to much confusion, and this is a state when any liar can spoon feed you with his poison. So the bigger the mess, the better it is for Michael Jackson’s haters as more and more people become susceptible to their lies.
Actually there is a big science standing behind all these tricks that carries a seemingly innocent name of “information technologies”.
And the way this false headline was created proves that it was made in accordance with its rules. It contains all the names and catch words necessary for being picked up by search engines and – attention please – omits the apostrophe which is actually a recommendation in tutorials on naming articles and publications in case you want the headline to go into the top ten:
Characters to be avoided in image file names:To avoid syntax problems it is recommended not to use / (slash), \ (backslash), ? (question mark), * (asterisk), + (plus) : (colon), | (vertical bar), ” (quotation mark), long dash — (Alt 0151) or ‘ (apostrophe).
One day the authors of this blog should study these laws too, as the above advice made me realize that our headlines are scientifically all wrong, but for the time being I will simply follow the haters’ pattern hoping that this way our headline will undo at least some harm done by their hoax.
WHAT BRETT BARNES REALLY SAYS
To bring some clarity into what Brett Barnes really said about Robson let me post here the replies proven to be his, some of which were already mentioned in the comments for the previous post.
When Brett Barnes gave his testimony at the 2005 trial alongside Robson and Culkin, he testified about Michael’s complete innocence – he was vehement that no “molestation” had ever taken place , Michael had never touched him in a sexual way and never made any inappropriate move:
16 Q. Has Mr. Jackson ever molested you?
17 A. Absolutely not. And I can tell you right
18 now that if he had, I wouldn’t be here right now.
19 Q. Has Mr. Jackson ever touched you in a sexual
21 A. Never. I wouldn’t stand for it.
22 Q. Has Mr. Jackson ever touched any part of
23 your body in a way that you thought was
25 A. Never. It’s not the type of thing that I
26 would stand for.
(Incidentally Robson who now alleges “anal rape” also said that he had never been as much as touched by MJ, so I wonder how he is going to explain this small discrepancy now).
Since Brett was so resentful about false accusations of Michael and still dares to persist in his views, the torrent of hatred from MJ haters (aka Robson’s supporters) is focused almost solely on him now. The pressure they are subjecting him to is simply unprecedented. They demand answers to this and that, and why he didn’t remember certain details during his testimony (they call it “evasive” answers), they ridicule and insult him and accuse him of being a liar and a coward – all of which produces the impression that they are doing their utmost to make Brett break down under the strain, which is surely another of their goals.
If they manage to achieve it (and I keep my fingers crossed that they don’t) this may be the second best result for them as they will solemnly proclaim the young man to be another “victim” of MJ and will hypocritically ask: “See how harmful for these boys was their association with Michael Jackson?”
However Brett still admirably stands up to all their bullying and all MJ haters received from him by now was the following:
– On May 8, 2013, just several days after Robson made his allegations Brett’s first reaction to them was somewhat philosophical.
I wish people would realise, in your last moments on this earth, all the money in the world will be of no comfort. My clear conscience will.
[Great words of truth and wisdom. Clear conscience is indeed all that matters].
On the subject of Diane Dimond who looks forward to Brett joining Robson’s lawsuit he said:
She ain’t worth my time, or any of my 140 characters.
And in case she tried to approach him for some provocative interview Brett said the result would disappoint her:
The outcome wouldn’t sell stories or create any scandals.
The attacks against Brett from MJ haters started almost immediately after he expressed his views on Robson – only in the absence of anything else to say the first thing they found fault with was his spelling.
Certain “CandyLand” said it was wrong and Brett patiently explained that Australians spell some words in a different way:
And this is where I need to make a side note.
A SIDE NOTE ON SPELLING
Indeed, Australians spell some words not in the same way Americans do. They stick to British spelling – compare their “realise”, “normalise”, “behaviour”, “favourite”, “honour” with the American spelling of the same – realize, normalize, behavior, favourite, honor, etc.
This fact is important for us for a very special reason of our own. The thing is that soon after Michael Jackson’s death the MJ hater’s site suddenly switched over to a different spelling which clearly pointed to its admin being an Australian or British. In the earlier version of the site which had been inoperative for quite a time the site used the texts written by Americans (most probably Ray or Evan Chandler), but as soon as the admin started writing on his own the difference in spelling became obvious.
By now the spelling there may have been corrected to make it more American-like and uniform throughout all texts but earlier screenshots of the admin’s own introduction to it will convince you that its author is definitely Australian or British.
Allforlove blog already noticed that the present anti-MJ campaign seems to have a vivid Australian connection to it.
To this I can also add that the connection may be British too and may take us to a notorious and very prolific boy-lovers’ advocate who got out of jail right at the time when Michael Jackson died (after serving a sentence for possessing child porn) and this would also coincide with the time when this previously ‘sleeping’ blog was actually resumed.
Though the idea may seem incredible at first sight, the theory that MJ haters (aka WR supporters) have someting to do with boy-lovers has a reason for existence as even ordinary readers who follow them are beginning to notice that this team has a very strange liking for dwelling on child sex abuse and in graphic detail too.
We’ve also recently encountered it when a Robson supporter masquerading as someone “confused and sitting on the fence” finally gave himself away by a horrible observation about sex with a child that “All one needs is patience & lubricant for anal intercourse”, which made me feel sick to my stomach and immediately block him without further ado.
I don’t have to explain here that the above statement clearly points to a person with pedophilia inclinations. Normal people don’t even think in this direction – their minds are geared a different way and have a natural barrier that makes them throw up at a mere idea of what this person said.
God save us all from the “supporters” of child sex abuse victims like that! As for Robson, my congratulations to him on a very specific group of activists who are supporting his “cause”.
HARASSMENT OF BRETT BARNES NEVER STOPS
Since the time Brett expressed his views on Robson in May 2013 the attacks against him have become only more persistent, massive and vicious.
Of this I’ve learned from the discussion on Amazon.com that took place in May last year. Please note that the reader on Amazon also noticed a strange phenomenon that Brett Barnes is being attacked by what the reader called an “abuse porn” crowd – a crowd that seems to be deriving strange gratification from dwelling on matters of sexual abuse:
Posted on May 15, 2014 3:31:45 PM PDT
Amazon Customer says:
- It looks real. I recognized several of his followers.
- But why would Brett Barnes, at this late date, suddenly communicate on twitter about Michael?
- Brett Barnes is constantly harassed by the abuse porn crowd. He always shuts them down.
- Who is the “abuse porn crowd,” C. Starling?
- Ah, the “abuse porn” crowd. That’s a phrase I made up to describe people who seem to derive some kind of gratification from dwelling on sexual abuse. <>Sad to say, some of the groups that have sprung up in recent years, ostensibly to advocate for sexual abuse victims, have deteriorated into organized witch hunters. They see molestation everywhere. Any accusation is a conviction in their eyes, and if there is no accusation when they think there should be one, they make one up. Some of them have been harassing Brett Barnes because he steadfastly refuses to accuse MJ.
- Yes, I see that, but why does anyone think that’s the real Brett Barnes?
- Yes. That is him, that is the same one that was defending MJ when W.R. Supporters were trying to get him to say something happened to him. He refused and then just ignored them all together. He should have blocked them I’m not sure if he did.
- This one is a comment someone made about deporting W.R. lol
Brett Barnes @IAmBrettBarnes 7 May 2013
@sosodeaf nah, we don’t want him
Brett Barnes @IAmBrettBarnes Aug 23
@MikeParziale1 I’m really getting sick of your s***. Leave me out of your conversations.
Brett Barnes @IAmBrettBarnes Nov 23
@RealMJFacts you’re like a fly. You keep buzzing around, but you’re nothing more than an annoyance. There’s no s*** here for you so move on.
Well, the same old familiar faces…. Indeed, the main characters harassing Brett and mentioned by him in his tweets are already well-known to us.
It is the above MJ hater site (the one with the Australian/British accent) which “keeps buzzing” around Brett in the hope to twist some of his words as “facts”, and a certain Mike Parziale, the teamleader of Wade Robson facebook activists who by all their graphic sexual talk are evidently driving Brett to the point of being sick (and this we perfectly understand now).
What’s interesting is that all these people are bullying a young man whom they consider a possible abuse victim and who therefore, according to their own story, must have already seriously suffered and may be deeply traumatized.
However their own views on him don’t stop them from attacking him with insults and calling him names and never giving him a moment of quiet. Isn’t it a somewhat original way of supporting someone whom they consider to be a child abuse victim? Or is all their sympathy for these people a simple smokescreen and pathetic pretence while in reality they don’t give a damn? And Michael Jackson is the only one they are after?
To their attacks that he is not “brave to speak of his abuse” Brett gives an admirable answer:
I’M BEING BRAVE. I’VE GOT YOU ALL TO DEAL WITH.
When Brett loses patience and there is no further subject for discussion, he blocks his harassers, but it doesn’t help. The same people go on stalking on him by setting up new accounts and coming under different names.
Witnesses who view the process from aside say that all of it amounts to a harassment case that may be even taken to court and wonder why all of it started only after Robson’s made his claims.
Here are some samples from Brett’s twitter acount:
Gentleman & Scholar @gbyland May 16
- @IAmBrettBarnes If you were “brave” you wouldn’t block everyone who disagrees. Lying for MJ doesn’t make you loyal. It makes you a coward
Caramelicedtea @teaicedcaramel 16 мая
- @IAmBrettBarnes They keep getting different accounts to stalk harass you on, report them on twitter for all the different names they use
Caramelicedtea @teaicedcaramel 16 мая
- @IAmBrettBarnes I hope they realize if this makes it to court their harassment of you (and others) could be used against their case.
The Prophecy @Tige234 16 мая
- @teaicedcaramel @IAmBrettBarnes Brett have you ever kept count of how many times these people have Tweeted you?
The Prophecy @Tige234 16 мая
- @teaicedcaramel @IAmBrettBarnes And did you ever get these before Robson started his lousy case?
It is clear that Brett doesn’t have time for all these people, and a mere blocking them is not enough. I think that Michael’s supporters should probably help Brett by keeping record of what the bullies say and do to him and make respective screenshots (just in case he needs them in court or elsewhere).
At the moment Brett is being attacked from all sides and no matter what he says, it is never good for these people – if he doesn’t answer they say that it is “his choice to not disclose his abuse” and if he does answer they say that “he’s so combative that he comes off bad”.
Brett also noticed that no matter what he says it will be twisted to suit their views and that the right to an opinion they so freely allow for themselves is completely denied to him and other supporters of Michael Jackson’s innocence:
The thing with you fools is, no matter what I say to you you’ll just twist it to go along with your “views”.
Why are you so against other people’s opinions when you share yours so freely?
In short Brett Barnes is going through really hard times. But even despite that he never loses a chance to remember Michael – with gratitude, sadness, love and appreciation.
He misses him very much and this feeling is probably only growing stronger against the background of all this nastiness which reminds him and all of us of the circumstances that ultimately did his friend in.
On June 25, 2013 Brett wrote:
It still could have been yesterday.
On August 29, 2013 he remembered Michael’s birthday and called him the name he and his friends called each other:
Happy Birthday Applehead.
And on June 26, 2014 Brett wrote:
Five years have gone by, but the time hasn’t made the sadness go away. I miss you Applehead.
Let me take my hat off to Brett Barnes. All this hate, pressure and bullying are really too much for one person, however he is taking the challenge and is still not giving in.
Lord, please help the man and give him all the stamina he needs to deal with the infinite hate of these non-humans.
