Yeah. Unfortunately, there’s a whole army of followers that will attack you any time you suggest that maybe this Aussie is a faker and has no idea what she’s talking about.
And that is what tells me this isn’t just a woman who wants attention. This is a paid influencer.
The little army, sometimes they are bots. But sometimes they ask real stupid questions like, “who are you working for?” and “who’s paying you?”
When you respond with a disagreement with this person. The last time I responded to her, I picked up my little buddy who went on a harassment campaign which lasted about a week and a half.
Well, same person is coming after me again. This time, I’ve been blocked by Ms. Caitlin herself, which I thank her for that, it is good for my mental health.
In fact, for the past couple of weeks every time her face was in my feed I thought about blocking her and as I’m sure you know, it was just about every day.
Something wouldn’t let me do that because I think, “no one is countering this nonsense.” Everything I read of hers is simply parroted by her followers.
In the beginning, I thought her writing was pretty good. There were a few things that made me pause, but for the most part I felt like her work was genuine. Then almost out of the blue she started writing all this garbage that on its face seemed anti establishment, but if you took ten seconds to verify her claims it wasn’t difficult to see her words were intended to support our current clusterfuck of an administration.
“We don’t have time for this?!?” Who’s ‘we?’ I spent a couple of weeks arguing with people telling me there was no evidence of collusion and an investigation was a waste of time.
I started to feel like Dorthy in the Emerald City when the Wizard of Oz was going:
“Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain!”
I don’t like that crap. If there’s nothing back there and I have good reason to verify that (because Dumpf is known for being a liar) there should not be any issue with checking behind the curtain.
The reaction to being challenged is beyond the level of a regular GOP or Dumpf supporter. These people want to make you stop talking. And they say things like, “you don’t want to allow free thought and speech!” while trying to intimidate you to get you to shut up and stop countering her…
Ummm. No, its just I would like to be able to respond with my own thoughts about the thing.
So, Meg, I am bad because I disagreed and said as much. Disagreeing means you hate freedom of speech, dontcha know?
Anyway, it’s been a great time around here with all this drama. I wish I could have stopped paying attention to her about a month ago, but the shit is so blatantly intended to misled… I just couldn’t turn away, you know? And now, I have such sweet sweet relief. Because she blocked me — thank god.
Ugh. What a waste of energy.
