Just so you know

Last night, Wirecutter asked my permission to link to a meme that the Kerodins had posted on their "Behavior Modification" page. Why was he worried? Because it's supposed to be insulting and humiliating to me. And because WC epitomizes "Gentleman", he didn't want to do anything that would hurt or distress me. 

Several of you have seen it already, and most of you were outraged by it. I'm going to post it here, after the fold because I don't want kids to see it accidentally. And I want to tell you why it doesn't bother me. 


First, this is a classic "Mean Girl" tactic. 


"Relational aggression is a kind of social torment that often exists without parents and teachers even noticing. Girls use backbiting, ostracizing, rumor spreading, name-calling and manipulation to inflict serious psychological harm on their targets.

The result often leaves girls bewildered and upset with no clear understanding of why they are being targeted.
And now social media has given mean girls an entirely new avenue to harm others. In addition to in-person bullying, mean girls also engage in cyberbullying. They attack others online using gossip, harassment or hurtful comments."
Mean Girls bully out of insecurity, instability, and immaturity. They tear down other people to make themselves appear bigger and more important. Their targets are typically just as insecure if not more than they are. And that's where the Kerodin's made their mistake in targeting me. I have no doubt they are insecure and unstable, especially now that things are coming apart at the seams. I, however, am neither insecure nor unstable. And I'm not so immature that I would crumble at someone's mean-spirited attack. They missed their target.

Second, I have a wonderful support group of friends and family who truly know me. The people who know me and love me know this is bullshit. I'm not worried about this meme changing their opinions of me; I don't fear losing the respect of anyone important to me because of this. It simply doesn't affect me at all. Anyone whose opinion of me changes after seeing this is more than welcome to fuck off.

So, that being said, here is the meme.





Seriously, the only insulting thing is "with half the IQ points" bit.
I was smart enough to see through the Kerodins, no?

Sad that this is what it all comes to - this in my opinion is one good reason why I believe the trust in the 'movement' does not go forward. Granted there are good folks out there butt this sort of thing that is publically displayed leads me to think, I (for one) am staying away from those (out there in the internet world) who I do not know .....
Good for you for taking the high road in this matter.

Angel, if you're a friend of Ken's, then you're a friend of mine!

Well "Christian", and "Velma", or whatever your real fucking names are, Karma has been reputed to be a real bitch. Seems like an interesting way to say thanks to one of your investors. So I for one will gladly donate to see a lawsuit go forward to pin your scheming hides to the wall once and for all. I am not up on whether defrauding investors is a Felony, but I bet it is. Leavenworth for two time losers?

Sad and pathetic. Really great folks, until they're exposed for the scam artists (and snitches too?) that they are. Take their meal tickets away, and their real characters show up. Yeah, I got suckered, and I'm thankful for you, Ken, George Patton and others who shone a light on these cockroaches. Lil' Pink Hands is quite the internet tough guy, huh?

That's the best that they could come up with? Pathetic...........

Peter said...

Interesting.

Sammy's friend Bill Nye (the asshole guy) has been calling me names with cat in them: Peter Kitty, Kitty Boy, and most recently Feline Boy.

So when I saw that, I didn't think of you at all, I thought it was K carrying Nye's water.

Whatever. Get your ducks in a row and sue that half-pint sleazebag.

So sammy the squirrel was insinuating that your that girl just older and dumber? He's one to talk about half as smart. Ignore him.

My friend, we have discussed this issue on the phone...you know my feelings on it. It makes me angry that a grown ass man, would degrade a woman in this manner..obviously he was not equipped to engage in a battle of intelligent discussion.

My sincerest wish is to never hear, see, think of, or have any connection to those malicious, cowardly people again. I do believe that those who financially invested have a right to sue, and should collectively do so, otherwise...we all need to quit letting them take up space in our brains...they are not paying rent. They have proven time and again to not be worthy of mine...you decide about yours, just as Ken will his.

Leslie, you have my support, respect and love...anything you need from me, I got ya..you are one of the most kind, and intelligent women I have the pleasure of calling a friend.

hiswiserangel said...

Miss Lisa, they aren't in my head. I don't give them a second thought. I only posted it because wc mentioned it last night and then decided not too, because he was worried about it being so humiliating to me. I posted it to show it has absolutely no effect on me. It's "a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing."

Hugs and much love to you, Miss Lisa! I'm proud to call you friend as well.

1/2 the IQ points? As Bugs Bunny would say; "He don't know you very good, do he?"

I've been reading you (and Kenny) for a long time. As much as I would like to sit down and have an intelligent conversation with you, I know deep in my heart that you would completely smoke me on most any subject. Not bragging, but several people have told me that I'm the smartest person they know.

They can only say that because they haven't met Angel yet. (Well, that and I live in a very small town...)

Peter, Where do you see Nye commenting? Link?

Angel. I am so sorry. If it helps, when they go as personal as this, the gig is almost up. They will get what they deserve, people like this always do. -55six

bad. just bad. My parents always taught me that character is important, and never attempt to hurt a woman. I wonder what their parents taught them? And as to you, Angel. Good. just good. you are always a class act.

wirecutter said...

Well, I guess it's okay for me to post it then.....

hiswiserangel said...

Yup, but I will always be grateful to you for having my back and caring about my feelings. You, wirecutter, are a True Man.

Moral support (and bullets, beans and band aids) from the left coast. Givem Hell, girl.

Peter said...

55six-

Billy-boy posts as Anonymous over at the Konvict Kompound, but I've had so many tangles with him that I instantly recognize his writing style and word choice.

He did use his name at, I think, MVT.

Also, he was using the Anon shield for a time over at Bubba's. Not sure if he's still commenting over there, because with some of those pretty wimmins stevieray has been posting, I'm pretty much speechless.

the investors should sue them.
something else someone should try and look into is him taking donations for the people in oregon and them pocketing some if not all of it. wouldn't surprise me if it's a fact.

I guess I'm a bit slow, but I cannot imagine how that picture would change my opinion of you.

Unseriously though, I expected more frothing at the mouth.

As a limey 4000 miles away across the pond without a real understanding as to the full background to this saga I would like to just stick a small oar in young lady and this is it:

"With enemies like that who are so socially and intellectually retarded that any rational culture would classify them as a retrograde genetic step in the on-going process of human evolution you should be proud of yourself for having brought some these bottom dwelling pond life to the surface and thus into the full light of day."

Just sayin' (to use one of your colloquialisms,cousins) :)

I adore you. And will 152nd the fact that if you choose to go the legal route that he opened, let us all know. I have no dog in this hunt but will gladly kick in the kick his infantile ass.

Yeah, wc, the TRUE Patriot community has got some really good folks. I'm proud they claim me as part of them.

They're both useless asshats. I'm so glad they aren't more than a nuisance. You're an incredible lady, and hopefully don't need to give them another thought.

Vox Populi said...

http://www.wikihow.com/Identify-a-Psychopath

Glib, supervision charm, grandiose self-perception, constant need for stimulation, pathological lying, high level of cunning and manipulation, no feelings of guild or empathy, parasitic lifestyle, unrealistic and lofty goals, irresponsible and impulsive, never admit to being wrong, inability to own up to mistakes, criminal versatility, poor treatment towards those whom they don't consider beneficial to their aims (belittle, humiliate, mistreat, mock, attack)

Keep your chin up and fists up. God Bless.

Volfram said...

If that was supposed to be an insult to you, they should probably rethink their aim. Also get their trigger mechanism checked, because the text starts somewhere and then goes nowhere.

So what I'm getting here is that not only are the Kerodins a couple of really bad people, they aren't even any good at it.

Anonymous said...

Wise Angel One, anyone as small as those folks does not show up on the radar, and you are (again) wise to dismiss them as the insignificant piss ants they are......

Angel, as you know, I support you. Just wanted to refresh that in your mind.

da_truth36 said...

I'm sure I'm missing quite a bit here, I'm a relative newcomer to this whole Kerodin fiasco. To paraphrase Acts 19:15, I "know" Kenny and I "know" you, who is this Sammy?

If there's ever anything I can do for you guys, please don't hesitate to ask. I may not be part of the III% movement but I'm still a decent human being who's outraged by the bullshit perpetrated by some asshole that I'm really just becoming aware of. Take care Toots.

Sadly sometimes trolls come into our lives just as shit happens. I have been following WC for some time now and unfortunately for the two of you this Kerodin fellow happened to be born in a time when corporal punishment is not allowed by the citizens. Only a weak mind would stoop so low to post something like this against you. Angel my gut tells me Kerodin is a very bad person who preys on the good will of men and women alike. I have always believed that people like that get their just rewards in life. His will likely come at the end of his life when he is plunged into hell and Satan shoves a pineapple up his ARSE for eternity. Stay Strong and don't worry good people are sending you our positive energies to combat this evil force. Peace love and happiness.

Good on you, Angel....I would expect that you would just let it roll off your back. Proud of ya!

Angel,

I don't know you, and don't know wire cutter. I found his blog a few weeks ago, which led me to yours, and I learned a tiny bit about this scene.

All I can say is these so called patriots are absolutely demented. All I can say is, good for you, Angel.

Harold Foster said...

Angel,

I have followed Knuckledragging and Sipsey Street both for a long time. In my internet travels, and having a prepper mindset, I was led to the "Kerodins" blog site on more than one occasion. I read stuff there with an open mind. But I saw a bit of a "spat" so to speak emerge between Mike V./David Codera vs the Kerodins. I like to watch people. I saw the Kerodins (or more correctly Sam K.) spewing some vitriol against Mike V. The vitriol was not returned, just a passing aside about some unhappy people. That was my first clue about the Kerodins. When it continued again and again, my BS/Annoyance meter starting going off like crazy. I then started doing some of my own research. And my conclusion, which I reached about 18 months ago, was that the Kreodins were some of the vilest creatures I had seen. I have a relative that I seldom see that reminds me of this scum. Big talk as long as there is something to hide behind, but folds like a plastic bag in the open. There is no substance to them. And the attack/parody on you is awfully low. You have my support. It's just sad that this flotsam has sullied the name of the III movement with their "involvement".

Anonymous said...

Yes, you have my positive support and respect for the manner in which you are handling this. Assholes do assholery and in a just world we could deal with attempts to debase your honor at a more visceral level. I feel we are quickly approaching the time in which such a response will come back into fashion.

Beyond that, and a comment not directed at you but the many readers who continue to make this error, do not conflate special k and his very unmerry band of 3 followers with the III percent.

Mike pretty well defines the III percent over at Sipsey Street.

Sammy pretty well defines being a prick.

In closing, to paraphrase Louis L'amour, the cars as they go through town don't pay attention to the dogs barking at their wheels, don't you either.

Angel, I hope you can get together with the other investors and (1) get at least most of your money back and (2) convince the DA in the appropriate location that you have been indictably (if that's a word) defrauded by this pond scum. Best wishes.

fjord said...

Unreal.

I'm so glad some people's lives are so uncluttered by real world problems that they have time to play 5th grade girl games on the internet.

Stay Strong and stay true to your principals and know that a lot of people 'get' what you and WC stand for and know we stand behind you. This probably sounds corny, but you are shining beacon of hope in the darkness, and I can always count on you for laughter to get me through these dark times.

Yours in faith,

CalGrey said...

Angel,

I stay in the background watching all of this, daily checking yours and WC blog. Used to check the other blog to keep an eye on them, but quit doing that since most is BS. All I can say is, I bet their parents and ancestors sure are proud...

And yes, that was sarcasm dripping off that last statement.
