I ended the last episode by asserting that most of these death threats and rape threats femistatists receive on the interwebz are fictitious. In this episode I’ll start by explaining why. Then we will stumble upon evidence I am right.
Here are the reasons I call bullshit on this “I’m receiving threats of death and rape on the internet because I’m a woman” nonsense:
1. The men making these threats are all emotionally immature/retarded and they were all raised by women. Maybe if women were better at parenting this wouldn’t be a problem. Women control public education. These men spend most of the first 18 years of their lives in contact with women.
2. The men making these threats have all been raised in a feminized society. They have been taught that women are better than them. Women are more important than them. That they are nothing but broken women. These men see they have no chance at a girl friend, wife or family. Some of this could be these men lashing out in response.
3. How many of these men are on medication for their “personality defects”? And wasn’t it women who put them on the medication?
4. What did these femistatists do that men responded to with threats? The idea that these femistatists were simply minding their own business is laughable. Did these femistatists assert that all men are racist? Rapists? Broken? Homophobic? Wife beaters? Why do femistatists think there are no consequences to their actions?
5. Saying you received a rape or death threat doesn’t make it true. Femistatists will either lie about receiving threats or send the threats to themselves via sock-puppet accounts.
Femistatists do this for attention, to gain victim status and because they have rape fantasies.
6. If a large number of men really do want to kill or rape a femistatists isn’t that “democracy” and don’t feminists love democracy?
7. Femistatists also approve of violence and murder when it’s done by their allies. How many Muslims did Obama murder with missiles fired from flying robots? Did you see any feminist cunts protesting that? You did not.
8. Femistatists are as emotionally immature and retarded as the rejects who are making threats against them. Two wrongs may not make a right, but two wrongs deserve each other.
And now. Why I am The Great One.
Keen invokes Hannah Smith as evidence that online trolls cause little girls to kill themselves.
Problem is Hannah Smith trolled herself.
A 14-year-old girl found hanged in her bedroom probably posted “vile” messages about herself on a social media website, police told an inquest.
Hannah Smith was found dead at her home in Lutterworth, Leicestershire, on 2 August.
Her father told the inquest she had been bullied for some time.
Recording a verdict of suicide, Leicester coroner Catherine Mason said there was no evidence Hannah had been targeted by bullies on the Ask.fm site.
Following Hannah’s death, her father David Smith had called for action to be taken against internet trolls who had apparently posted messages about his daughter in the run-up to her death.
However, Det Sgt Wayne Simmons revealed at the inquest that scrutiny of Hannah’s laptop and address codes – known as IP addresses – which can help locate computers connected to the internet, had revealed strong evidence she had in fact posted all the messages to herself.
Ms Mason said that “understandably”, friends and family who saw those messages might have concluded they had caused her to take her own life.
“The evidence I have was that on the balance of probabilities they would all have been at Hannah’s own hand,” she said.
“Why she did it, I don’t know.”
Simmons said Hannah had posted messages on Facebook, blocked to her family, which made it clear she had been thinking about suicide as long ago as 16 June. By 19 July, after several similar postings, she had “relayed an intent” again to commit suicide and sent a text message to another child saying “goodbye”. She had conducted web searches on suicide, and expressed suicidal thoughts in writings found by police.
Concluding the inquest, the coroner said: “It was quite clear that when Hannah died it was a huge shock to all that knew and loved her. Understandably there was an immediate searching as to why this had happened.
“So there was this immediate, real and genuine fear that Hannah had been subjected to vile messages on social media.
“Friends and family saw those [messages] after the event and that caused a lot of upset, understandably that it might have taken Hannah to the point where she found herself on 2 August last year.
“The evidence I have was that on the balance of probabilities they would all have been at Hannah’s own hand. Why she did it, I don’t know.”
She had been subjected “to behaviour that was not acceptable” in the months leading up to her death and had discussed bullying with family and friends, but there was no evidence either her school or family could have known of her intention to take her own life, said the coroner.
But a police investigation into the death uncovered no evidence that she was the victim of internet bullying, an inquest has been told.
Asked by Leicester and South Leicestershire coroner Catherine Mason if there was ‘any evidence’ that Hannah Smith was subjected to cyber-bullying, Detective Sergeant Wayne Simmons said: ‘No, there isn’t.’
Det Sgt Simmons, of Leicestershire Police, added that on the ‘balance of probabilities’ the ‘vile’ messages about Hannah on the social media site were posted by the teenager herself in the run-up to her death on August 2 last year.

Hannah Smith, 14, hanged herself in her bedroom ten days ago after being targeted by trolls on Ask.fm.
But the social networking site insists that she set up most of the anonymous identities used to bombard her own page, it has been reported.
A source at the firm based in Riga, Latvia, said: ‘With the Hannah case, the company have looked at every identity – the [computer] IP addresses are trackable. She posted the anonymous things herself.’
Last night Hannah’s father David, 45, reacted with anger to the allegation.
‘Hannah was a 14-year-old girl who was being bullied and she took her own life,’ he said. ‘Ask.fm is trying to cover its own back by discrediting Hannah. It’s disgusting.’
The firm claims that up to 98 per cent of the messages sent to Hannah came from the same IP address as her own computer. Only four posts were sent from a different machine, it has been reported.
She said: “There has been this fear in terms of internet trolls, which we won’t be exploring because there was no trolling in this case.”
In private briefings just days after her death Ask.fm said that 98% of the messages had come from the same IP address as Hannah’s.
A source said: “The company have looked at every identity – the IP addresses are trackable. She posted the anonymous things herself. The police has all that data.”
Ask.fm founder Ilja Terebin has also previously claimed attention-seeking teenagers regularly troll themselves on the website.
He said: “When they come to sites like these, they start trolling themselves so that their peers start protecting them. In this absurd way, they get the attention.”
Speaking after the hearing, Dave said: “They say they have looked at all the messages and they’re from her IP address.”
What did I say?
They do this for attention.
Leave it to the Clown News Network to report the feminized version of the story.
The suicide of a 14-year-old girl who was apparently targeted by online “trolls” has added fuel to calls in Britain for action to prevent abuse on social media, following outrage over rape and bomb threats made against women via Twitter.
Teenager Hannah Smith was found dead Friday at her home in Leicestershire. She hanged herself after she was bullied on the website Ask.fm, her father told UK media, having gone there to look for advice on the skin condition eczema.
And the nightmare is not over for her family. Her older sister, Jo, is quoted in the Daily Mirror newspaper Wednesday as saying that she is now herself the target of Internet trolls.
Hannah and all the other children mentioned were murdered by their own parents. Murder by neglect and shitty parenting.
