Anyway, back to the thread that was generated over the weekend. Gavin James posted as follows:
There`s evidence for earthquakes since the dawn of time. I don`t know if you genuinely believe this crap Richard, but as someone whose family has strong Japanese links, I find your use of this humanitarian tragedy to sell your crank theories to desperate people quite sickening. Shame on you.
Are you upset when the police, or the rescue workers, or the Red Cross ... or the media ... show up for a disaster?
And, if not ... why NOT!?--
After all, they're being PAID!
They LIVE off "disaster and human misery," do they not?
The thread continued for over 160 posts, although if you discount a torrent of utter rubbish from someone called 'Ed BordSoHere' it'd come down to about half that.
It quickly became obvious that Hoagland's main motivation was, indeed, marketing. He repeatedly reminded the faithful followers that this is all part of the SEEKRIT SPACE WAR that Judy Wood DEFINED, that he lectured about 15 days ago, and that will be the subject of A DVD -- COMING SHORTLY. He stopped just short of posting an 800 number.
Gavin James stayed with it, keeping his cool. Another of his rejoinders was:
Yes people need to be prosecuted for 9-11, the JFK case needs to be reopened etc, but by putting out these wild theories first we condemn the movement to an existence of inactivity. The establishment don`t need to worry about putting out misinfo, when there are attention seakers and charlatans who crawl out of the wood work, and claim to have been to Mars, room shared with Elvis in the 90`s, that they`re Marilyn Monroe etc etc etc.
Thanks to Chris Lopes for bringing this to my attention. The full nauseating thread is here.
Update: The sub-title on Hoagland's FB page used to identify him as a "Public Figure." Suddenly it's changed to "Aerospace/Defense." It figures that his elephantine arrogance would have wanted the "Public Figure" label. Maybe FB slapped his wrist?
