William Atchison a Kiwi Farms member shot and killed two students at Aztec High School in New Mexico on December 7, 2017 Source: San Juan County Sheriff’s Office
Two children are dead after a Kiwi Farms member William Atchison (Kiwi Farms Profile archive) went on a school rampage in New Mexico (archive). Atchison, 21, was apparently a member of the web forum Kiwi Farms that this site has campaigned to close for nearly 2 years. Kiwi Farms has previously been linked to threats to murder school children, but now for the first time the massacre threats have actually been carried out leading to real world deaths.
For those unfamiliar to this site, I am a law graduate – I have passed the lawyer’s exams here in the UK but not sought admission as a solicitor. I assist the vulnerable in court solely for charity and I have been mentioned in Parliament. Earlier this year I was praised in reported case law (paragraph 14) by a High Court judge, in a case heard shortly before I received my Master’s Degree. For the past two years I have been campaigning to shut down Kiwi Farms, a site run by Joshua Conner Moon – formerly of Pensacola, Florida.
Kiwi Farms is run by paedophile sadist Joshua Conner Moon and exists to harass the disabled. Click for full size.
Kiwi Farms exists to stalk the vulnerable. It says so, officially. “Gossip and exploitation of the mentally handicapped for amusement purposes” (from their Twitter, archived pre-ban here).
New York Magazine’s Select All section wrote an article about the site, detailing how they stalked an autistic man called Christian Weston Chandler and groomed a 13-year-old boy into posing as a 19-year-old female and having phone sex with the man. This they audio recorded for “amusement purposes”, publishing a recording and transcript.
In Labour, factional conflict works much like guilds in WoW, and the illusion of the importance of the meaningless roles is reinforced as members can leverage them in internal conflicts. Just as WoW powers are fictional and only work in the game, most Labour Party ‘power’ is only useful internally for PvP activities. Also like an MMO, subscribers progress through levels of imaginary power and obtain shiny character customisation gear such as badges, ribbons and rosettes. The result has many of the addictive qualities of online gaming and keeps the members delivering leaflets and knocking on doors.
One such recruit was Jamie Fulford, who sys he has a BSc in Law and Politics and a BA in Media Arts. Jamie rejoined Labour in 2015 and in April 2016 became the “Digital Media and IT Officer” of Welwyn Hatfield Labour Party, a role equivalent to roughly level 2-3 in a WoW character. Jamie has now resigned and joined the Conservative Party. Fulford quickly had a cruel education in the illusory nature of authority in Labour Party grassroots roles.
Some angry judges. What might happen if this went to court.
Firstly, I agree with the barrister that the conduct is indirect discrimination and in any event as he says the current rule book confers no such power. However, I would add that if it did, it would likely fall foul of –
Where expulsions from political parties are litigated, there is also case law requiring clubs and other such organisations to follow their own rules, for example, Lee v Showmen’s Guild of Great Britain  2 QB 329. I also observe that it is particularly disturbing if Labour are using a bot on either Twitter or Facebook to expel people.
The recent elections to the Labour Party National Executive Committee mark a decisive and critical turning point in UK Labour’s destiny. If (or as is looking likely, when) the NEC falls under the sway of the Jeremy Corbyn supporting left all of the last bulwarks of Blairite and centrist resistance will suddenly begin to dissolve. This will leave one of the UK’s two largest parties further under the control of its leader, who has bitterly attacked US President Trump for “pandering to racism”.
The sun is going down for the Right of Labour and it is time for them to go.
The British Labour Party, once led by Tony Blair, has long had a byzantine structure. At the bottom are the members, divided into “branches” along the lines of County Council seats. Each Branch has a Chair, Secretary and Treasurer and sends delegates to their “Constituency Labout Party” (CLP), which has an executive committee, Chair, Secretary, Treasurer and a plethora of other roles.
Together, these institutions select the Labour candidates for Parliament, Mayoral elections and city councils. This is the UK equivalent of a primary election. Much like Ace Ventura’s medallion of spiritual enlightenment or a voluntary Wikipedia role, the tiny amounts of power handed out are almost worthless. In reality selections, especially for Parliamentary seats, are closely supervised by regional and national officials. Real power is carefully concentrated above whilst activists below are given only its illusion. Continue reading →
Just a brief note. I have seen some people, even some people I like stretch too far in the direction of hate speech. I have a much stricter definition of hate speech than the left, who now include essentially anything they disagree with. However, it is one thing to be pessimistic about the future and another to sound like you want a new holocaust.
When the term alt-Right was first used, it was for scepticism towards speech controls, extreme political correctness and reckless immigration policies. It has drifted to the extreme right effectively including Nazism and I repudiate it completely. Their remains a new right that represents a modern Conservative thought without the extremism and that is where I stand.
The same applies to publications. As put, alt-Hero is a brilliant satire intended to rile up the far left. It was sold on a promise of apolitical, “storylines not social justice”. I will read it with an open mind – other Castalia House books have been good. However, if it were to go too far I would simply not buy the followup or merchandise.
In the latest epic Twitter fail, the ailing social network disabled the US President’s account for 11 minutes. It was restored later and the network claimed the outage was due to an employee on their last day. The lack of professionalism speaks for itself.
Twitter – Like Someone Crashed a Clown Car Into a Gold Mine!
Twitter also did not even act in a timely fashion to ban an account claiming to represent the ‘Child Porn Captial[sic] of the Internet’ until I and others put in media inquiries (including my threat to have Jack Dorsey personally served with legal documents and to invite Breitbart to photograph said delivery).
Twitter is not the only option – there are new games in town including social media network Gab, which has repeatedly and unfairly been accused of being a platform for white supremacists but which in fact hosts a growing and diverse community. Gab still has a way to go of course, like any social media network. I would like to see Andrew Torba and Vox Day reconcile.
If Trump were to move to Gab, praising the social network for its diverse voices, he would cause a massive influx of users to Gab and a crash in Twitter stock prices.
Why not let him know? Gab users who would like the President to join them can drop a line to firstname.lastname@example.org or via the form here (ideally, both).
Full disclosure: I know Grant Shapps and have done for years. I have been to his house. He was a good Conservative Party Chairman and is a competent campaigner. He is a great local MP. Becoming leader of the Conservative Party, however, is a big ask. Like Margaret Thatcher before him, Grant has struck first. Unfortunately, so far that is all that he has going for him. Shapps has the potential to be Party leader but he needs to seriously raise his game, setting out a clear vision for country and party.
Those who claim Shapps had nothing to do with the victory are being nonsensical – they would have been quick to blame him if the election was lost. Shapps’ successors as Conservative campaign organisers had a far better hand to play in the 2017 election – starting far further ahead in the polls. They squandered it.
Racism on our streets is a repugnant sight but this author has campaigned against the extremists for 20 years without the need for violence. Vigilante violence is never acceptable, leading to harm against bystanders, victims of mistaken identity and the vulnerable. That is why it is so serious when extremists like Abaddon Books’ Commissioning Editor David Thomas Moore (who is attending FantasyCon 2017 this year) normalise or advocate violence. HWS Events, which is organising the event, has made a statement about this after receiving legal correspondence from MHN, reminding attendees of its harassment policy and right to exclude anyone who threatens violence.
“IS IT OK TO PUNCH THE SITH?” asks this image on David Moore’s timeline. Comments by his followers make it clear they take it to mean Nazis. And by Nazis, they mean Trump supporters. Click for full size.
“Is it okay to punch Nazis?”, asks the far Left. The question is seductive, bringing to mind the first recent Captain America film or perhaps Indiana Jones, exciting stories of a world at war in a simpler time. Abaddon Books’ Commissioning editor David Moore poses the question on his Facebook timeline in a somewhat loaded form, “Is it okay to punch the Sith?” In a wartime drama or a science fiction fantasy world the answers might seem simple – but the real world is no longer at war and the questions are no longer simple at all. Looking at the replies to the question, what David’s followers understand is “Is it okay to punch people whom I disagree with?” And the troubling answer they give is, “yes”. A specific example given is Donald Trump’s presidency.
A dictionary definition of extremist is here – “A person who holds extreme political or religious views, especially one who advocates illegal, violent, or other extreme action.” (archive).
This article is based on a judgement reported and made public by HHJ Hilder. I have discovered the identities of some of the abusers but for now I have precisely followed the judge’s anonymisations whilst I clarify the precise court orders in force. In due course I may, if necessary, apply to the court for a variation.
SHAME – Worthless Labour councillor Doug Taylor is leader of Enfield Council. The abuse happened on his watch, yet he has not apologised to victims and their families.
In summary, the London Borough of Enfield, by some procurement process that remains opaque (and in relation to which Enfield seem to have ignored my questions), decided to outsource the management of the property and affairs of vulnerable clients. In the UK, if a person lacks mental capacity to manage their finances due to (for example) dementia or severe learning disability, then they may be subject to a Deputyship – a court order appointing someone to do it for them.
Matrix Deputies is a UK limited company and the judge has permitted them to be named. The company and its officers were involved in Deputyships for 52 clients, 8 of which are now dead. The court proceedings began when the UK Public Guardian applied to terminate all of those Deputyships on the grounds of financial abuse. According to the schedules in the judgement, incidents of concern were occurring at least since 2014.
After the Public Guardian made the application it appears at some point the London Borough of Enfield was appointed as an interim Deputy by order of 17 February 2016 was ordered to investigate the affairs of the clients and the dealings by Matrix. This investigation was conducted on the council’s behalf by PwC, the well known accountants. The investigation cost roughly a quarter of a million pounds (£250,000) in part due to non-cooperation by Matrix Deputies. The money has yet to be fully recovered.
The new actor portraying Dr Who, Jodie Whittaker, has waded into a highly charged and controversial debate about back pay for low-paid vulnerable care workers. A number of care organisations have been found to be unlawfully paying below minimum wage and the government has been seeking back pay. Ms Whittaker has sought to help the charities avoid their liabilities, backing a campaign for the taxpayer to foot the bill instead.

I have stayed out of the heated debate about the casting of a female Dr Who. Recasting a much loved character – even changing the colour of their cape – is often a controversial topic. Fans grow attached to characters who (being fictional) are defined solely by their brand and fictional attributes. Turning the entire Time Lord people into a race of transsexuals by retconning the possibility of regeneration into another biological sex was always a controversial proposition.
