After Gregory Alan Elliott was judged not guilty on Friday, the social justice warriors and their friends in the mainstream media were outraged.
They were outraged to the point where they completely divorced themselves from reality.
Even though the judge provided a clear explanation for why Elliott wasn’t guilty, radical feminists pouted and protested as if they had personally fought a three-year court battle and been forced to spend almost one hundred thousand dollars.
It’s hardly a surprise. The judge could have provided undeniable proof that Stephanie Guthrie and her cronies were Nazis and the radical left would’ve cheered as they led people to gas chambers.
The most frightening aspect of this outrage were the members of the media working to undermine the judge’s decision. Buzzfeed’s Ishmael Daro asked people to tell him about the harassment they’d been subjected to as a result of the Elliott case. He didn’t ask for evidence or proof.
Ishmael published an anonymous note from an individual claiming to have been harassed by Elliott’s supporters. In this story the individual claims that “as a woman” she had been subject to “indescribable” terror upon hearing the verdict.
Ishmael’s note was shared by John Bowman, a CBC “social media producer”, who seems to have spent his weekend filling his Twitter timeline with inane rants:
No matter what the facts say, Gregory Alan Elliott will always be guilty in John Bowman’s heart.
The authoritarian left won’t let a judge’s verdict stop them. They don’t care about evidence. They are quite comfortable slandering Elliott and his supporters with nothing in the way of corroboration but their feminism-addled intuitions.
Even after he was proven innocent, the exasperated Bowman and Daro clung to the fantasy that he was guilty of something.
In the past, Bowman positioned himself against alleged harassment perpetrated by the members of #GamerGate.
He’s also claimed that as a man, he has magic defenses against harassment that women don’t have, and that blocking people isn’t necessary for him because of his white male privilege. Daro isn’t much better.
These men seem too good to be true! Two unwavering male feminists who defend women, and who would support self-described “victims” at any cost (even if it means ignoring evidence).
Given these men’s extraordinary commitment to feminism, I thought it appropriate to fire back with some feminism of my own.
Bowman’s political disagreement with me “felt” like harassment, he even mentioned me in a tweet without my consent! Given his white male status and oppressive blue checkmark, my victimhood was assured.
I knew I couldn’t have been the only casualty of Bowman’s Twitter harassment. I called out to other people who’d been subject to abuse at his hands and Daro’s as well.
The brave confessions flooded in! Even if the law decides they are unreasonable or lacking proof, their feelings are ample evidence of criminal harassment at Bowman and Daro’s hands.
I had over 40 people contact me claiming they’d been harassed. This ought to be enough to have these two men criminally charged. Precedent has been established to allege criminal acts and drag people through hundred-thousand-dollar court cases on this basis, after all.
Obviously these "confessions" are nonsense, like much of the slander made against Elliott. It would be educational if one day people like Bowman and Daro were subject to the logical consequences of their slander, but thanks to the verdict in this case, that’s not going to happen.
Last Friday, Gregory Alan Elliott didn’t defend free speech just for himself. He defended free speech for all of us. He defended those rights for the worst among us—social justice warriors, radical feminists, and people employed by Buzzfeed and the CBC. He even defended speech rights for the likes of Stephanie Guthrie, Heather Reilly, and Paisley Rae.
People on the authoritarian left may feel comfortable stomping over the rights of those who disagree with them. But they ought to imagine themselves in Elliott’s position. Anyone who argues on the Internet could be subject to criminal prosecution under Canadian law.
If people like John Bowman and Ishmael Daro continue their slander, they may find themselves in that position awfully soon. And should thank Elliott that "feelings" won't count as ample evidence against them.
