Free Talk Live Host Ian Freeman Becomes Enraged at My Disclosure of the FTL & LRN AMPlifiers Facebook Group

Ian Freeman, the head host of the nationally-syndicated radio show Free Talk Live (which at one time purported to be consistently libertarian but not anymore as far as I’m concerned), has officially become enraged with me because I have posted the contents of the FTN & LRN Facebook Group’s discussion thread as screenshots in my previous post.

Here are the screenshots from the previous post as well as Ian’s juvenile yet irate response:

Ian Pissed at Me Clipping - 12-22-2015

Notice the immediate focus is away from Mark’s decision to leave FTL’s airwaves and the directed and focused attention to my posting. Yet Ian said the following:

Ian Freeman Admitting That Anyone Can Leak His Group's Content - 12-23-2015

 

Yes! Ian said it. Anyone “can leak the content here.” He also said, which has been buttressing my point for so long: “No should consider it private.”

Now for those who are on Ian’s side and who are miffed at me, please write the following, which is what Ian said on your nearest chalkboard 100 times: “Anyone can leak the content here. No one should consider it private.” “Anyone can leak the content here. No one should consider it private. Anyone can leak the content here. No one should consider it private.” “Anyone can…” Well, you get the point anyway.

And throw in three Tripple Goddesses, four Charges of the Goddess, and one recital of the Wiccan Rede in its entirety. LOL! Just kidding!

Then Ian posted a poll, inquiring how the ruckus regarding me compromising the security and secrecy of the group should be resolved:

Todd Andrew Barnett Being Accused of Leaking Out FTL & LRN AMPlifiers Content Part 1 Clipping - 12-22-2015

Johnson Rice, the asshole who decided to pick a fight with me and who has no true skin in this game, decided to jump into the fray here by responding to Ian’s inquiry:

 

Todd Andrew Barnett Being Accused of Leaking Out FTL & LRN AMPlifiers Content Part 2 Clipping - 12-22-2015

 

If he unfriended me because my posts and I were “obnoxious,” then he must be an Eagle Scout. Yet he isn’t really one, because he’s no saint himself. After insulting some women in the movement by drawing a “penis tree,” which caused some controversy in the old Facebook group Creepertarians, in which the founder of the group attacked him, and I went on the defensive for him. Gee, not even a “thank you” or a “get-well” card from him. I shouldn’t have bothered defending his fat-fuck ass to begin with.

Of course, as I have shown from my blog piece on Mark Edge leaving FTL as a talk show host:
Todd Andrew Barnett Being Accused of Leaking Out FTL & LRN AMPlifiers Content Part 3 Clipping - 12-22-2015

Todd Andrew Barnett Being Accused of Leaking Out FTL & LRN AMPlifiers Content Part 4 Clipping - 12-22-2015

Todd Andrew Barnett Being Accused of Leaking Out FTL & LRN AMPlifiers Content Part 4 - I'm Removed Clipping - 12-22-2015


Then Ian removed me, causing me to cancel my AMP subscription and contact PayPal to dispute the transaction which was recorded in my account with them.

My PayPal Transaction Regarding FTL Clipping - 12-23-2015
Ian, as ever as the fucking dickhead he is, write a snotty email to me, in which he stated in the following screenshots:

My Email to Ian Freeman, Asking Him to Delete My FTL Website Account and Remove Me from AMP List Clipping - 12-23-2015My Email to Ian Freeman, Asking Him to Delete My FTL Website Account and Remove Me from AMP List Part 2 Clipping - 12-23-2015And that was the end of our long-standing acquaintanceship via email, on Facebook, and most likely on the radio.

Do I look like I’m gonna lose sleep over this fucking bullshit? Not a chance in hell.

Ian is mistaken when he said that I signed up as a credit card AMPlifier, and that “there is no PayPal transaction to dispute.” Ian, if you’re reading this, this is what my PayPal says:

My PayPal Transaction Regarding FTL Part 2 Tiny Clipping - 12-23-2015

And here’s Ian’s auto-receipt of the PayPal Debit Mastercard transaction of $6 being refunded back to me:

Ian's Auto-Receipt of The Transaction Refund to Me in the Amount of $6 Clipping (Alternative) - 12-23-2015

Well, that’s the end of my relationship with FTL. Goodbye to bad rubbish and also good riddance.

After all, if I criticize them more on this blog, what are they gonna do? Sue me? For what? Libel? Slander? Character assassinations? Good luck with all of that if you can pull that off.

 

Free Talk Live Co-Host Mark Edge Officially Quits Over the Show’s Abysmal Advertise, Market, and Promote (AMP) Program

Long-time Free Talk Live co-host Mark Edge, who has been behind the talk show mike with fellow co-host Ian Freeman since the very first episode of FTL since 2002, has officially quit the show because of its abysmal number of subscribers to the Advertise, Market, and Promote (AMP) program. It has become both a surprise and shock to long-term FTL listeners who have frequented the show’s airwaves spending three hours live listening to the show as well as listening to the podcast via the show’s website and iTunes podcast link.

The segment, which features Mark’s announcement of his departure from the show, is actually a recorded one, which implies that it was recorded earlier and not discussed live during the show’s live broadcast. Why Mark and Ian chose to record it earlier and not converse about it live during the broadcast stream is unknown, but I suspect that Mark didn’t want to be inundated with phone calls about why he made the chose NOT to come back on the air after last night.

Here’s the video of Edge looking at his screen at the LRN studios while the pre-recorded segment was playing live on the air.

Here’s the audio version of that segment as well.

After that segment aired, the news of Edge’s resignation from the show immediately went viral on the libertarian blogosphere. Ian posted his erstwhile partner leaving the show on FreeKeene.com yesterday with the following blog entry:

Free Keene - Mark Edge Exits Free Talk Live's Airwaves Clip - 12-20-2015

When I confronted Mark on Facebook Messenger via Facebook‘s website yesterday, the exchange turned out to be this:

My Chat with Mark Edge About His Departure from Free Talk Live Clip- 12-20-2015

My Chat with Mark Edge About His Departure from Free Talk Live Part 2 Clip - 12-20-2015
The reasons that people are less inclined to subscribe to the AMP program, not “holding steady for many years” as Mark disingenuously puts it, are many, but one reason is not necessarily more paramount than the other. It’s nice that Mark is trying to peddle this image of FTL’s AMP program “holding steady for many years,” but if that were the case, he wouldn’t be bitching and complaining about the fact that he and Ian have alienated many of their subscribers within the last few years for a variety of reasons.

Let’s iron out the reasons, shall we?

  1. The condescending, insulting, and obnoxious “I-wanna-be-a-libertarian-although-I-am-not” asshole Christopher Cantwell. Thanks to Ian and Mark for allowing this to happen, self-glorifying celebritarian piece-of-shit asshole Christopher Cantwell destroyed the uniqueness, greatness, and distinctiveness that has made FTL an outstanding-produced live terrestrial/podcast show that once has brought people to listen to new ideas with enthusiasm and vigor. Other Internet talk radio shows, except for my show Liberty Cap Talk Live, lacked and never had from the beginning new ideas and a loving atmosphere of individuality that has always been a cultural, moral, and political tradition within the libertarian movement. Unlike the liberal and conservative shows, FTL’s refreshing perspectives created a new niche not only for libertarians but also people who were never libertarians but learned the ideas of liberty and thus evolved into natural libertarians.Cantwell effectively took a wrecking ball and demolished and pulverized the very foundation of the purity of the show that made it consistent. He effectively turned it into The Christopher Cantwell Show with Ian Freeman and Mark Edge, simply because he made it all about him. You weren’t allowed to have a difference of opinion with him. He consistently attacked the limousine Left, although I do concur with him on that. But when it came to the vile Right, he gave that team a free pass.Here’s the video to prove this:Here’s the audio of that version that should prove it more:It doesn’t even help that he had posted some negative posts consisting of racist tweets to a black Twitter user on his Twitter account, which resulted in bad publicity for him and his then-indefinite suspension from the show.That’s the biggest reason why the AMP subscribers and show listeners have felt alienated from the show and why they’ve abandoned it either in favor of other podcasts or doing something else. They hate the fact that Cantwell has destroyed every aspect of the show. They realize that Cantwell is not a libertarian, was never a libertarian, and will never be one because he’s a bitter, angry man who has an ulterior motive the size of a star becoming a supernova. Ian and Mark might as well have brought on Eric Dondero to be their co-host, considering he’s another example of a “I-wanna-be-a-libertarian-yet-I’m-not,” considering he hates Muslims
  2. Ian’s Arrogant Attitude. It doesn’t help that Ian’s arrogant attitude, which is not all that unusual because it’s been well-known over the years, hasn’t helped the show the slightest bit. Do people remember how he treated me when I called into his show to talk about Cantwell’s letter to the Free State Project in which he objected to being kicked out of the organization for his then-support for the State, including the Police State?Here’s Exhibit A:
  3. Choice of Co-Hosts. Finally, Ian’s choice of co-hosts ranging from asshats like Darryl W. Perry (who used to be a good friend of mine until he stopped talking to me on account of me for being a “drama queen”) have scathed FTL’s brand, not helping it at the very least. Other people who were co-hosts as well have ruined the good namesake of the show, but what’s done is done. There’s no use erasing it, because the stain can’t be removed. It’s there….for good.

 

Screenshots of Mark’s Departure from the Secret FTL & LRN Amplifiers Facebook Group

Yesterday, on the FTL & LRN Facebook group wall, Ian posted his blog post. This is what was posted as the following:

Conclusion

It’s a sad time in the libertarian movement when you have a prominent figure in the movement — one who is well-known in the terrestrial radio/podcast show circuit and has been doing it for thirteen years — bemoaning about the fact that the AMP program isn’t what he wants it to be. He tells me that there are not “less people” and that AMP has been “holding steady for many years.” It can’t be doing that when you are experiencing diminishing returns on your investment and your listener base isn’t as solid as it used to be.

My message to Mark: don’t blame your former listeners and AMP subscribers for not giving enough to the show, for the lackluster performance of FTL, and for feeling alienated in light of a former co-host who has demonized good people in the movement who are doing their best to bring the ideas of liberty to them that they weren’t available fifty or sixty years ago.

Don’t blame them; blame yourself. You want more AMP subscribers? You want more listeners? Give them incentives to start donating and listening to your show. If your show ceases to be nuanced and entertaining, that’s on you, not your listenership. Jettison this whining bullshit and get your act together! If you want FTL to be bigger, better, and very successful, you need to work for it. Don’t insult your audiences; they are the reasons why you have a show. If you don’t get that, then FTL deserves to die, and you and Ian deserve to lose your jobs and get real jobs.

Good luck with whatever you do, Mark. What you decide is up to you. I just hope that what you’ve decided to do is worth it in the long run.

Kelsey Eichhorn-Fetterhoff: Brad Spangler’s Teen Lover Turned On Him In Her Personal YouTube Video

Kelsey Eichhorn-Fetterhoff, a Pennsylvanian millenial and former Ron Paul youth supporter, turned on Brad Spangler the week he came out with his Facebook confession by unleashing a YouTube video in which she denounced Spangler and told everyone to stop asking her questions about her “relationship” with Spangler because they were “gross,” according to her.

Kelsey goes so far as to say:

I didn’t want to be involved in this. I wanted nothing to do with this. It’s weird, it’s creepy, it’s bizarre, it’s tragic, it’s disgusting, and people are adding me [on Facebook]. A lot of people are adding me, and only a lot of people are only adding me only to message me and ask me weird, gross questions that are really gross and disgusting, and I really just don’t want to talk about it. So I’m gonna make this video, and you all can watch this, and then you all can go away and leave me alone, unless you actually want to be my friend on Facebook. That’s cool too. Whatever.

This is the same Kelsey who told me about Brad Spangler’s daughter’s real name in private. This is also the same Kelsey who told me she thought Brad “was an asshole” because he stopped talking to her and blocked her, even around the time when he didn’t want her to see his confession. She even told me that Brad backed off from her and distanced himself from her, only because he supposedly told her that she reminded him of his daughter.

It’s interesting in this video – at least I always thought it was interesting in this video – that Kelsey claims that Brad met her online when she was supposedly 15 and not 17, and Brad had lied about her age because she reaffirmed that she was 15 and not 17 (which is interesting, because she didn’t dispute Brad’s “lie” at the time she and Brad were dating at the time). She had been making YouTube videos for Ron Paul, and she at some point added Brad on Facebook.

This is what she says here:

Really, Kelsey? Why would you add that jackass on Facebook? Why would you even talk to him about pro-Liberty stuff even before he was acting creepy? Are you that dense to figure out that the man just wanted to get into your pants, considering he had – and still has – a thing for teens like you? He looked at you as if you were piece of KFC chicken breast (or thigh), extra crispy style. And you didn’t think there was something wrong with that picture?

You lied to me about your relationship with Brad if that was the case. Perhaps you were lying in the video as well, trying to not let out the real true story of your relationship with Brad from ever getting out? And you had to take it to YouTube to air your complaints? Why didn’t you call the cops on him and those people who were asking you “weird, gross questions” about you and him? Why didn’t you contact the Feds when you had the chance?

Here’s what I think. I think you enjoyed the attention as well as the sexual tension between you and him. If what you said happened to be the case, you would have told him to stay away from you over four years ago, and you would have warned the entire libertarian and anarchist communities within the libertarian community about what Brad was doing to you then.

So he wanted you to “run away from him” just for you to “live with him” and “have sex with him multiple times.” Again, why didn’t you tell your parents about it? Why didn’t you bring this matter to the libertarian community first before even bringing it to the cops? Why did you go along with “his lie” that you were 17 and had me defend you and him, considering I was the object of scorn and ridicule by Deborah Dedmon and other people?

But that’s a blog post for another day.

Behold the following posts showcasing Kelsey and Brad’s love for each other:

Ostracize The Coward Behind The “Ostracize Todd Andrew Barnett” Facebook Page

The Facebook page “Ostracize Todd Andrew Barnett,” which was launched sometime back on May 25 of this year, was made public and available to all members of FB in an effort to libel me and impugn and assassinate my character, not to mention violate my intellectual property for the purpose of destroying me and my reputation that I worked hard and endlessly to build and preserve for over 16 years. I knew there are some people who have it in for me, who want to see me destroyed, and believe that my endless, unrelenting honesty is somehow a calamitous threat to the libertarian movement that has come apart at the seams since the Brad Spangler and Christopher Cantwell fallouts – messes that are on them and not me.

The name of the community page is like this:

Ostracize Todd Andrew Barnett Page on Facebook Part 7 - Ostracize Todd Andrew Barnett (community page pic) - 12-03-2015

 

Of course it doesn’t end there. This is what the page is about:

About the 'Ostracize Todd Andrew Barnett' Page

I, of course, never professed to be a saint, much less the nicest and least sarcastic asshole on the planet, let alone the entire universe or even “multiverses.” (Do “multiverses” really count? Let me know about that for once, ok? LOL!) Anyway, where was I? Ahhh yes, this page was created by a clandestine individual to inform “those who wish to disassociate themselves” from Yours Truly. Oh, and here’s the cosmic gag that keeps the laughs coming: supposedly I’m a “drama queen ‘libertarian’ hanger-on who publicly outs rape victims.'” That last part really did it for me, and yet this invisible dude – or dudette – thinks he’s doing what passes for a “libertarian” movement a big favor by outing me as the evil super-duper villain of all time — yup, in the same league of the Joker, Harley Quinn, Two-Face a.k.a. Harvey Dent, Lex Luthor, Grodd….well, you get the DC Comics point anyhow. This stuff is so comical that this dude should be Bill Maher of Real Time‘s own staff writer. He’d make a really good career in Hollywood.

 

“Ostracize Todd Andrew Barnett”‘s Laughably Ridiculous Points

Here’s more ugly libels that are lawsuit-worthy:

Ostracize Todd Andrew Barnett Page on Facebook Part 1 Clipping - 12-03-2015 Ostracize Todd Andrew Barnett Page on Facebook Part 2 Clipping - 12-04-2015
I’d like to respond to each and every single point that this coward has written about me, so let’s start with the most recent one that began approximately a day ago.

Yes, it’s true that I reported his page to Facebook on the grounds that the images and statements he quotes from me were employed *WITHOUT* my express permission. There’s no evidence that he misquoted me, but he has used my statements against me in such a way that I consider to be an attack on my person, my character, and well-respected reputation that precedes me. Yes, “Ostracize” (which is what I will call you from now on), I am respected by my family, my personal friends whom I’ve known for over 30 years, and many fellow anarchists and libertarians with whom I remain good friends (like Wendy McElroy and Sheldon Richman, for instance) and with whom I have built, erected, established, and preserved good rapports for many, many years — long before you knew what a libertarian ever was.

I used the “intellectual property” tactic as a ruse to draw you out. And guess what? You took the bait. I wanted your attention as much as you wanted my attention, however undivided it was, and now you have it. I never said I wasn’t fair game in the movement. Not once in my life did I ever say or imply or infer that I am shielded from the effects of public scrutiny. I’m not. However, would you like to know something? The rules apply to you too. You are fair game as well. You are not shielded from those same effects. I don’t know what your end game is, or what you want with me, or why you are doing this, but I’ve been around the block many, many times. You’re no different from Eric Dondero of the Libertarian Republicans blog.

I should also note that not all libertarians agree with each other regarding IP laws that govern intellectual property. Stephan Kinsella, an IP attorney who employs the “libertarian” moniker all the time and yet is a member of a bar association of statist attorneys and uses the State to his advantage, claims he’s against intellectual property. So does Ian Freeman (formerly, Ian Bernard) of Free Talk Live. However, not all libertarians concur with each other on intellectual property laws. L. Neil Smith (co-founder of the Libertarian Enterprise for which I have written and where I’ve published articles) and Sharon Presley support intellectual property laws because of their support for artists. (Sharon and Neil do not support corporations having full control of other people’s intellectual property though as I understand it.)

I do know one thing: you are a coward. That’s what you have been, that’s what you still are right now, and that’s what you’ll always be. A coward. A coward is someone who hides in the shadows, afraid of revealing his or her true identity and true form. He or she is afraid of unveiling what his or her ulterior motives are, which seem to be carried out in the form of a smear campaign against me. And that, sir, is you!

Yes, I’ve been writing and publishing articles long before you were a gleam in the movement’s eyes. Yet I’m not the only one who’s been doing that. Scores of libertarians and anarchists, past and present, have been doing that for years. Yes, I do run and host a radio show known as Liberty Cap Talk Live I could create a page about you that is a response to what you’ve fashioned against me, and perhaps I should, but I won’t. I’m sure someone would call it or suggest “Ostracize the Ostracize Todd Andrew Barnett Page” or something like that, but then that would be even more comical and more of a cosmic gag than you or anyone in the movement have foreseen.

I reserve the right to protect my intellectual property that includes my likeness, image, and name, as well as my reputation. I have more people on my side than you have on yours. I’ve seen only 8 likes on your page, which is a really Goddess-awful non-existent number. Why is it a bad number? It’s simply because out of so many libertarians who have better uses of their time than to engage in politically-correct cheap shots, ludicrous rantings about someone (a colleague, a protege, or an ally) whom they know nothing about personally outside of Facebook, and personal, whacked-out barbs and insults that they would likely with each other over irrelevant issues that are the least of their concerns, the State remains our enemy, and we don’t have time for this inane bullshit that takes up valuable time and precious resources that could be best served nationally, state-wise, and locally to fight the real threats to our liberties.

You refer to the Brad Spangler trainwreck in which you note that I involved myself in that ruckus.

Let me post what Brad Spangler wrote on his Facebook wall on January 22 of this year:

Brad Spangler Admits He's A Child Molester Clip I - 01-22-2015

 

 

 

 

 

Of course, I will repeat a portion of what Brad said with some extra content attached to this page:

 

Brad Spangler Admits He's A Child Molester Clip II -01-22-2015

And, of course, this is what Brad also posted including some comments that were appended to his FB post as well:

Brad Spangler Admits He's A Child Molester Part II Clip I - 01-22-2015

Brad Spangler Admits He's A Child Molester Part III Clip I - 01-22-2015

Brad Spangler Admits He's A Child Molester Part III Clip III - 01-22-2015

 

Let it be on record that I’m not the only person who involved himself in this matter. I estimate that over 85 percent of the movement involved itself into the Spangler affair, and like most brain-dead humans, they forget too easily what has been posted with their names attached to that development. Many people, including Corey Moore, gleefully latched onto the event, making themselves armchair opportunists the second the news surrounding Brad’s Facebook confession came out. As the pics unveil, and I never candy-coat anything just to use it as window dressing for any pathetically particular interest or reasoning, quite a number of people responded, and they kept responding to the matter because it was blowing up on the Internet. The second Spangler confessed that he was a pedophile, that he molested his daughter (who was 10 at the time), his life in the movement for him was over.

The cops couldn’t do a damn thing about the matter because of the statute of limitations in his case ran out, although it could go on for 20-30 years *EVEN* after the victim, who was under 18 in 2004. That means the limitations ran out last year, which menas that, even if his daughter were to still file criminal charges against him, they wouldn’t stick because the law would insulate and does insulate Brad from the prosecutorial consequences imposed upon and meted out to him by the State of Missouri.

Again, yes I did involve myself in that matter, and yes I did out the victim. I took a shit-slugging heat from people who believed that I violated her privacy. The victim, assuming she hasn’t turned 21 yet but I think she already has since this incident, was 20 years old when I “outed” her. It was Kelsey Eichhorn-Fetterhoff who told me Brad’s daughter’s first name, and it was J. Neil Schulman who pointed out to me that I had a moral and legal obligation to report the facts. It’s called the First Amendment for a reason.

You accuse me of “justifying outing a rape victim” (and so call it what you will!), but you’re a hypocrite. You’re justifying outing me as a person in the form of a Facebook page as a way for you to score political points, thinking that’s somehow gonna help you rise through the ranks of the movement, and you love the First Amendment when it works to your advantage and benefit from it. But the second it makes you look bad and makes you look like a super-villain, you caterwaul over that cardinal principle when the world doesn’t go your way? When the results don’t look in your favor? Get over yourself, please!

It doesn’t help that Zoe (OMG, I mentioned her name on my blog; fire and brimstone will rain down from the sky now that I’ve done it again!) is a Facebook friend of her father, and it also doesn’t help that she’s a legal adult who could’ve contacted me anytime she wanted if she didn’t want me to expose her identity for the world to know and see. She also could’ve said that, had I not done any of those things, she would’ve filed a lawsuit against me or filed criminal charges with her local prosecutor’s office, demanding that I take down my Facebook posts for the protection of her privacy. She doesn’t need sycophants like those who have attacked me for “outing her” in the libertarian and anarchist movements; she could’ve done these things herself. But she didn’t. And it’s not because I forced her to re-live the molestation acts committed against her by her own flesh-and-blood father; it’s because she dropped the ball on that one.

She did respond to the entire ruckus with the following:

Zoe Spangler's Public Statement Part 1 - First and Only Clip - 01-26-2015
And so she should. I take issue with her “rape culture” and “patriarchal ideas to be examined and dismantled” that she floated, but beyond that, she’s right on the button on a few things. What makes it complicated is the fact that:

  1. She’s a Marxist/left-wing statist like her father, but that’s her father’s fucked-up fault;
  2. She says, “I want to bring attention to how we view rape culture.” There is *NO* “rape culture” of any kind in the United States. There *IS* real rape culture brewing in the Middle East, particularly in countries like Iraq, Afghanistan, Iran, Egypt, Libya, and many Middle Eastern regions where ISIS is present, and we should condemn that. (Why she doesn’t condemn that in the Middle East is beyond me, but it buttresses my point that limousine left-liberal feminists like Zoe have concocted this imaginary world in which “rape culture” is universal, ubiquitous, and ever-present in the United States, and that all men are somehow evil and disgusting because of the atrocious actions of her own father.)and
  3. Finally, she acts like she wants to be infantilized, because of the horrors she experienced when she was a child, and she appears to be experiencing great difficulties as an adult because of her pedophile father who didn’t just “damage” her; he destroyed her all the around.

The fact that other libertarians and anarchists contributed to her infantilization as a child by keeping her trapped in the childification maze that has been constructed for her is just mind-boggling and disgusting. Anyone with a pulse worth their salt would just wash their hands of the madness and make a quiet exit, never to discuss the matter ever again, not even anyone.

You, “Ostracize” (or whoever you are), don’t give a damn about Zoe, what happened to her as a child, what her sanity and life have been, and so on. You only give the appearance of giving a damn just to boot your Facebook visits, and that’s all about it. The same reality applies to the others who decided to take matters into their own hands and purge me from the old libertarian movement, because they wanted to destroy it, and the Brad Spangler/Zoe Sprangler incident served as an opportunity as well as an excuse to get rid of radicals who have shaped and defined what was once a very powerful movement with people who had nothing but love and compassion for it.

I think I made my point with regards to this matter clearly and expressively.

On October 4 of this year, “Ostracize” posted the following on his or her page:

 

 

Ostracize Todd Andrew Barnett Page on Facebook Part 3 Clipping - 12-03-2015

And here are the screenshots:

Me Talking About Airing Five Last Episodes of LCTL on a September 9 Facebook Post Clipping - 12-04-2015

Me Talking About Not Ending LCTL on September 29 Clipping - 12-04-2015

That’s what “Ostracize” complains about! What am I talking about? I’m talking about the fact that “Ostracize” complains about the fact that I keep changing my mind about whether Liberty Cap Talk Live remains on the air or not. Yes, I have done that many times, and I don’t deny it. People can say whatever they want about that. I say: so what? So what if I keep changing my mind on whether to keep the show on the air or not? So what? My responses on Facebook are based on my mood swings, which could be on some psychiatric level, be a basis for bipolar disorder, I guess. But I don’t believe I have bipolar disorder. It’s just me changing my mind based on me cooling down after the depression kicks in, and I figure that’s all about it.

Was I really going to cancel LCTL? No. I was being theatrical about it. But then I’m an old actor, and the old actor has to play his part for the masses to see.

Am I a “drama queen”? Yes, I admit I am. So what? The libertarian movement is saturated with them. “Drama whoring” is the new sanity, and people who really cry me and everyone else a new river by simply objecting to the drama in the movement are “drama whores” as well. Even you, “Ostracize,” because you like this stuff for the kicks, the theatricality, the showboating, and the window dressing that come with all of this mess.

Well, don’t you?

I thought so.

Conclusion

The thing is, “Ostracize,” that I along with my fellow libertarians and anarchists (who are on my side for the most part) find your Facebook page to be both a nuisance and counterproductive to the goals, aspirations, dreams, and desires of other libertarians and anarchists who don’t kowtow to you and your minions as if they signed up for the U.S. Army.

It is what it is though. As I have told my good friend Avens O’Brien:

Look, I made a decision at the time. I’m not going to apologize for a decision I made, but at the same time, I wouldn’t do it again.

As for the drama you see from me that you so complain about, yeah, so? What’s your point? Aren’t you engaging in that drama too? You know you are. You just don’t want to admit it.

The truth is this, people: ostracize the “Ostracize Todd Andrew Barnett” Facebook Page. I ask people to disassociate themselves from this nutjob-of-a-prick who’s hell-bent on destroying my life, let alone every principle and conviction I have and for which I stand. I ask that you do this because you don’t need to have a dog in this fight, and neither do I. You owe this piece of shit nothing. I don’t owe him anything. More than that, I owe no one anything except for what my convictions are, my brazen honesty, and the truth as I see it. Nothing more and nothing less. Would you expect any less of me? Furthermore, would you do any less if the shoe were on the other foot?

I hope that everyone thinks very hard about that. I do. I really do.

Turn off the lights when you’re done with yourself, “Ostracize.” There’s no need for the huge electric bill.

[Note: Immediate Update:] Before I started work on this blog piece, I filed a harassment report via the page to Facebook. Since my intellectual property violation report didn’t get through and didn’t work, I decided not to give up on the Page, on the grounds that it targeted me, and that the coward behind the page who wouldn’t identify himself needed to be reported for violating Facebook’s community standards.

What did I do? I report the “Ostracize Todd Andrew Barnett” page to Facebook, and then Facebook reviewed it. Facebook posted the following, alerting me of its decision:

The Reporting of the 'Ostracize Todd Andrew Barnett' Facebook Page to Facebook, and Facebook's Decision (Updated) Clipping - 12-04-2015

 

And I thought Facebook would side with “Ostracize” all the way around. Wow. Don’t I feel vindicated now?
