Who Wants Me Dead?
When you criticize a quasi-religious belief system as deeply held as conspiracy theories, you’re going to make some enemies. I’ve had my share of comments on this blog that are critical, and a handful that are downright hostile. However, some cross the line into truly disturbing territory. There is at least one Thrive fan out there who thinks I should die as a result of writing this blog. Yes, that’s right–because I criticized an Internet movie, this person thinks I should be killed.
It’s a shame I have to create this page at all, but I can’t stand idly by and not call out the people who cross the line. Hopefully this page won’t be updated very often. I have no doubt that many and probably most Thrive fans are civil and respectful people. Unfortunately that’s not the case with everyone.
Who Wants Me Dead? Entry #1.
A commenter who signed his name “As$hole” posted the following comment early this morning.
[Cursewords redacted so as not to trip profanity filters]
“You are a f*cking idiot! May you rot in hell and die you bastard whore. Eat sh*t and die.”
The IP address of this person has been logged. I do report death threats to law enforcement.
This page is modeled on the “Who Wants Me Dead?” page where Mark Roberts, the “Obi-Wan Kenobi of Debunkers,” exhibited the various death threats he collected while debunking 9/11 conspiracy theories and especially the conspiracy movie Loose Change, which in fact was a progenitor of Thrive.
I really hope I don’t ever have to update this particular page again, but if warranted, I will.
