#UPDATE: January 6, 2021:
To all of you who are sending me video clips this morning and asking "Is this your family?"...


To answer your questions...


* Yes... my relatives ARE on every news station in every country of the world today, yes they did ORGANIZE the attack on the Capitol Building... and I am horrified by it.


* No, before you guys sent me the video footage clips, I was unaware the attack had happened, I do not own a TV and do not seek out news reports on the internet, so had you not sent me those clips I would never have known the attack had happened at all


* Yes, many members of my extended-family were involved in organizing the attack on Washington D.C.; one of my aunts claims to be the organizer, she is now wanted by the FBI for questioning


* Yes, I can see 1 uncle, 2 aunts, and 23 1st cousins in those pictures and news reports.


* Yes, the shooter is the high priest cousin you saw posting gun photos and death threats on my FaceBook, Twitter, and Twitch chat


* Yes, that is the 2 cousins who founded the group "The Loyalist White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan More Loyal Than The Loyal White Knights", in the gif/memes trashing reporter cameras and jumping on said cameras 


* YES, that IS the uncle who was paying the Discord tittie streamer $500 a month to stage the "deserve to be raped raids" on my Twitch channel 


* Yes, that uncle, 2 aunts, and 23 cousins ARE all members of Heaven's Gate and were party to the original UFO cult kool-aid murder suicide that killed 39 people in 1997


* No, I do not support anything they do or have done; it's been more than 30 years since I last saw, talked to, or interacted with any of them


#And please, stop forwarding video footage and news reports to me. I want nothing to do with those jackasses. We share DNA, not ideologies. They absolutely disgust me.


* If you were there, please be aware that 4 of them are now bragging on their social medias that they currently have Covid-19 and that they were spitting on police and government officials during the attack on the Capitol Building; yes it is confirmed they DO actually have Covid-19... 9 members of their immediate family have died in the past month and is what instigated them to join the mob at D.C.


* Yes, all of them are wanted by the FBI... if you have any information about ANY of their crimes INCLUDING today's attack on Washington D.C., do NOT send it to me, send it to the FBI agent in charge of the case: 


#FBI Agent Andy Drewer out of the Portland, Maine FBI office is in charge of the investigation. If you have information about the case, give it to him not me. He can be reached @ +1-(207)-774-9322


This whole thing is very distressing for me. I do not like the kind of attention that gets put on ME because I happen to be related to THEM.

Far too many people harass my family, online and offline, because of these dipshits in our rather distant family tree.

I prefer to stay out of the public eye and deeply dislike being pulled into the paparazzi spotlight every time this group of lunatics pulls one of these ridiculous terrorist attack stunts.


It was very distressing for me to wake up this morning to find email, and every contact method on every social media, packs full of thousands of questions, links, and forwards, all asking me if that was my family that was being plastered across every news station on the planet.


It was bad enough to learn a terrorist attack had happened and it was even worse to learn it was yet again my uncles behind it.


Though I can not say I'm surprised to learn these jackass dipshits I have to share DNA with were involved. This certainly isn't the first terrorist attack they took part in.


Considering this 1 uncle, 2 aunts, & 23 cousins, all who took part in Heaven's Gate murder of 39 people in 1997, 1 of whom built the bomb for 2013's Boston Marathon, and 2 of whom founded the Loyalist White Knights... were involved in this attack too... I hope they get life in prison, they fucking deserve it.

.......

#UPDATE: January 9, 2020....


Good news, one of them was just arrested in Florida. He's the guy all over Twitter today, waving to security cameras while stealing Nancy Pelosi's lecture pedestal. My relatives are insane. I hope he never gets out.


At least he can't post death threats and rape threats in my Twitch chat anymore. I hope they arrest them all.


Why do I have to share DNA with these psychotic lunatics?


You can support your political party without being a violent, crazed, psychopathic terroist, you know.


#And random thought...


You know... all the people saying Trump supporters should stop inciting violence and go read their Bible, clearly have never read the Bible and have no clue how much violence and genocide God commands in the Old Testament... shouldn't it be the Trumpies need LESS Bible influence? Isn't it the Bible that inspired them to be violent in the first place?


And you want to know something else...


26 of those people now arrested for attacking the Capitol, had ALREADY been reported, in October 2019, for planning an attack on the government...

I know beause I filed that report on 3 uncles, 2 auns, and 23 cousins when they started building bombs and bought 4,000 asult rifles, while claiming they were building an army.

This attack was a long time in the planning and couldhave been prevented and the FBI knew about it 2 years ago.


But hey... guess what... the FBI knew about the Heaven's Gate murder 8 MONTHS before those same 26 people murdered 39 people under the shadow of Hale-Bop... AND the FBI knew in 2012, 5 months ahead of time that these same 26 people were building bombs for the Boston Marathon.


Same 26 people over and over again. This time some of them actually got caught... but the Heaven's Gate crew, has 4,000 members in Maine, Florida, Mississippi, Wyomin, Colorado, and Nova Scotia.


They are gaining members all the time. They claim they are building God's army, they claim Trump is "the God-King" God's form on earth, they also believe he is a shapeshifting reptilian alien, and they claim to be waiting for a mothership that will fly in the shadow of Comet Wormwood.


They claim "when the Trump of jubilie sounds" they will be ready to kill all who oppose them, because they believe they are God's Army and they do not fear death, for they also believe that through death, they "will be changed in the twinkling of an eye" and transformed into mighty arch angels to enact vengange of all who oppose them.


They embrace death, to the point, like they did in 1997, they will kill themselves if they have to, and take everyone around them with them.


Heaven's Gate should be feared and they should be in prison, not building gallows on the front law of the Capitaol building while trying to hang the Vice President.


How many decades will Heaven's Gate's members be allowed to kill and main unbridled? They are terrorists and NEED to be arrested and put in prison, BEFORE they do what they are planning and unleash a bomb that will kill every one "East of the Mississippi" as they put it.


My uncle David is dangerous, and now with his brother Bruce, leader of Heaven's Gate since 1997, dead from Covid19, David's crew has become far more dangerous than they ever were.


This attack they staged on the Capitol, it's not the end, it was just them firing a warning shot of something far bigger yet to come.


They need to be stopped BEFORE they kill more people.


How many times will this same group be allowed to kill over and over again, before someone stops them?


.......


1 uncle, 2 aunts, & 23 cousins were there; they are the leaders of Heaven's Gate AND the Loyalist White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan; they have 4,000 members armed with assault rifles, ready to march on command, and that's JUST the group in Palmyra, Maine - they NEED to be stopped... this post they made on Twitter is NOT a joke... they WILL march Jan 19... they MUST be stopped... Jan 6 was just a warning shot

UPDATE: January 14, 2021
I received a deeply troubling question today... let's answer it...

I received a deeply troubling question today... let's answer it...


................


*if someone asks me to do something in exchange for a donation...? I stream, and today someone I've never seen before sent me a message on discord asking me if I want [insert ridiculous amount of money here]. I of course replied asking what for, and the guy replies saying 'complete 25 challenges, for example #1 would be pulling a funny face. If you complete all 25 challenges then I donate the money.' Oh, and he also sent me screenshots of what I assume is supposed to be proof that he's dono'd tons of money to others before. This seems sus AF to me. Should I just assume it's fake / he'll ask me to do something weird? What do?*


................


You've heard of the recent attacks on the American Capitol, right?

Have you NOT also heard about the 26 Twitch streamers who have found their name's on the FBI's no fly list even though they live in Europe and have never been to America?

Have you looked at today's day January 14 vs the date of the next 2 planned attacks, January 17 and January 20?

I doubt you'd ask this question if you HAD heard of what happened, so let me me summarize:

A group of terrorists spent several months planning an attack on Washington D.C. They took to intermingling with election rallies, so no one would suspect them. 

Meanwhile, online, they sought out a way to make 26 fake IDs for their group to use on attack day (January 6).

They ended up contacting 26 Twitch streamers the genders and approximate ages of the 26 people they had in their group going to D.C. 

Each streamer was sent an offer for being donated $500 in exchange for doing things. The streamers thought it seemed innocent enough and was easy money, so did it.

The reason for the $500 amount, was PayPal requires additional verification on large amounts, meaning, they were given the REAL NAMES AND HOME ADDRESSES of those 26 streamers. They next took those names and made 26 fake IDs using the names and addresses of those 26 streamers.

They used those fake IDs January 6 at D.C. and now as of Jan 7, those 26 streamers found their names on the FBI's no-fly list.

Those 26 terrorists, tossed the fake IDs and used their real IDs to leave D.C. and made their way back to Florida, Mississippi, New Hampshire, Vermont, and Maine, successfully returning home, while hundreds of other rally attendants found themselves unable to get on planes.

Given what those 26 did just before Jan 6, I would question anyone asking something similar to any streamer, right now, this close to Jan 17.

I highly recommend you report them to the FBI as possibly connected to the Jan 17 attack. **[https://tips.fbi.gov/](https://tips.fbi.gov/)**

The 26 people in question by the way... my uncle David, his wife Luci, his sister Barbie Jean, and 23 of their children, grandchildren, and great grand children... only one of whom so far has been arrested... the one who stole Nancy Pelosi's pulpit. On their way home to Palmyra, the rest showed up in my driveway January 11, to chant "All hail God King Trump" while bragging how they didn't get caught and outwitted the FBI and are going back to D.C. on Jan 17 and Jan 20.

Chances are VERY HIGH that the man contacting you was David's son Shem, who is the one who contacted the others prior to the Jan 6 attack, or so he bragged on Jan 11, while shooting off his rifils in my driveway, from a red 1980s vintage Jeep Cherokee.

Beware of the Atwaters, the Halls, the Cyrs, and the Johnsons... they ain't sending you money unless they are planning on using you to take the fall for some crime they plan to commit and blame on you. You'll go to jail and they'll walk free, like they always do, like they've been doing since the 1950s.

..UPDATE: January 14, 2021...
..............................
...MODS TAKE NOTICE!...
.................................
...NEW BAN RULES ADDED TO THE CHANNEL... ..............................
...From today forward ALL USERNAMES ending in "Chan" are to be banned on sight...
..............................
...I do not want any member of the 4Chan, 7Chan, Anon, QAnon or any similar terrorist organizations near my channel...
.............................. 
...BAN THEM ALL!...

#As of this discovery a new policy is now in place on my channel.. all mods are to **IMMEDIATELY BAN** anyone and everyone they see with the word "Chan" at the end of their name, wither that user has ever visited my channel or not.

I want my mods to take ANY user they see on ANY channel ANYWHERE on Twitch to just ban those usernames from my channel as soon as they see them.

#From today forwards ALL USERNAMES ending in "Chan" are to be banned on sight.

#I do not want any member of this terrorist organization near my channel.

#The Chans are horrible people and I want nothing to do with any of them.

#Anyone found to be a supporter of ANY Chan is to be banned from my channel, even if they do not have "Chan" at the end of their username.

The "Chan" movement... OMG! They are fucking psychotic extremists. I had no clue what "Chan" meant or why people put it at the end of their username. Knowing what I know now and looking at the fact that the ringleader behind the 3 year long attack on my Twitch channel has the word "Chan" at the end of her username, the wild sex rumors she spreads about me FINALLY make sense.

Today one of my mods sent me the following message:

*"I noticed the girl trying to cancel you has "Chan" at the end of her username, as do many of her followers. I also noticed your confusion over her attacks and I wonder, do you know what "chan" means or why streamers put it at the end of their username? Everyone who has "Chan" at the end of their username is a witch hunting channel, it is how they identify themselves. It means they are extremist radical trolls from 4chan. There is even a wiki devoted to the "Chan Movement". Here, you'll want to read this. **[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/4chan](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/4chan)** and this **[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Project_Chanology](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Project_Chanology)**Twitter has started to ban anyone using "chan" at the end of their username because is identifies the user as connected with white supremacy hate groups. She's a QAnon terrorist and proud of it, that's why she has "chan" at the end of her name. That's why she is working with your uncles. She helped them plan the attack on the Capitol. She's a QAnon member. That's why she has the word "chan" at the end of her username. Every QAnon member does that. I didn't realize you had never heard of QAnon or 4Chan until I saw your Tweet last night. I'm s sorry. I thought you knew that is what she was. I would have messaged you sooner about this if I had known you didn't know what QAnon was. Also "Thingy" is a slang word, it means "a child's vagina" people put that in their username to signify they are supporters of child rape. These are really bad people attacking your channel. They are the same people who just attacked America's Capital. When they are chanting "ThingyChan" in your chat, it's a QAnon secret code word, it's another word for rape, it's a rape threat, it's them bypassing the NightBot ban of the word rape. It means they are threatening to gather up 4Chan members to rape you. 4Chan QAnon's use secret code words to bypass chat bans because they know most people don't know what the code words mean. It's like a Morse Code that only they know."*


Here is what the Wiki has to say:

>>>>*"4chan is an anonymous English-language imageboard website. Launched by Christopher "moot" Poole in October 2003, the site hosts boards dedicated to a wide variety of topics, from anime and manga to video games, music, literature, fitness, politics, and sports, among others. Registration is not available and users typically post anonymously; posting is ephemeral, as threads receiving recent replies are "bumped" to the top of their respective board and old threads are deleted as new ones are created. As of November 2020, 4chan receives more than 20 million unique monthly visitors, with more than 900,000 posts made daily."*

.

.

>>>>*"The site has been described as a hub of Internet subculture, with its community being influential in the formation of prominent Internet memes, such as lolcats, Rickrolling, and rage comics, as well as hacktivist and political movements, such as Anonymous and the alt-right. 4chan has often been the subject of media attention as a source of controversies, including the coordination of pranks and harassment against websites and Internet users, and the posting of illegal and offensive content. The Guardian once summarized the 4chan community as "lunatic, juvenile ... brilliant, ridiculous and alarming""*

.

.

>>>>*"Before the end of 2003, several new anime-related boards were added, including /h/ (Hentai), /c/ (Anime/Cute), /d/ (Hentai/Alternative), /w/ (Wallpapers/Anime), /y/ (Yaoi), and /a/ (Anime). Additionally, a lolicon board was created at /l/ (Lolikon),[26] but was disabled following the posting of genuine child pornography and ultimately deleted in October 2004, after threats of legal action."*

.

.

>>>>*"On November 17, 2018, it was announced that the site would be split into two, with the work-safe boards moved to a new domain, 4channel.org, while the NSFW boards would remain on the 4chan.org domain. In a series of posts on the topic, Nishimura explained that the split was due to 4chan being blacklisted by most advertising companies, and that the new 4channel domain would allow for the site to receive advertisements by mainstream ad providers."*

.

.

>>>>*"/pol/ ("Politically Incorrect") is 4chan's political discussion board. A stickied thread on its front page states that the board's intended purpose is "discussion of news, world events, political issues, and other related topics." /pol/ was created in October 2011 as a rebranding of 4chan's news board, /new/, which was deleted that January for a high volume of racist discussion."*

.

.

>>>>*"Although there had previously been a strong left-libertarian contingent to 4chan activists, there was a gradual rightward turn on 4chan's politics board in the early-mid 2010s. The board quickly attracted posters with a political persuasion that later would be described with a new term, the alt-right. Media sources have characterized /pol/ as predominantly racist and sexist, with many of its posts taking an explicitly neo-Nazi bent. The Southern Poverty Law Center regards /pol/'s rhetorical style as widely emulated by white supremacist websites such as The Daily Stormer; the Stormer's editor, Andrew Anglin, concurred. /pol/ was where screenshots of Trayvon Martin's hacked social media accounts were initially posted. The board's users have started antifeminist, homophobic, transphobic, and anti-Arab Twitter campaigns."*

.

.

>>>>*"The users of /r9k/ built upon by then popular 4chan memes "epic win" and "fail" to group the human population into "alphas" or stereotypical well-adjusted popular people and "betas" or stereotypical geek-ish social rejects, self-identifying with the latter. It became a popular gathering place for the controversial online incel community. The "beta uprising" or "beta rebellion" meme, the idea of taking revenge against women, jocks and others perceived as the cause of incels' problems, was popularized on the sub-section. It gained more traction on the forum following the Umpqua Community College shooting, where it is believed that the shooter, Chris Harper-Mercer, also warned people not to go to school in the Northwest hours prior to the shooting as users encouraged him. The perpetrator of the Toronto van attack referenced 4chan and an incel rebellion in a Facebook post he made prior to the attack while praising self-identified incel Elliot Rodger, the killer behind the 2014 Isla Vista killings. He claims to have talked with both Harper-Mercer and Rodger on Reddit and 4chan and believes that he was part of a "beta uprising", also posting a message on 4chan about his intention the day before his attack."*

.

.

>>>>*"Anonymous originated in 2003 on the imageboard 4chan representing the concept of many online and offline community users simultaneously existing as an anarchic, digitized global brain. Anonymous members (known as Anons or QAnons) can be distinguished in public by the wearing of Guy Fawkes masks in the style portrayed in the graphic novel and film V for Vendetta. However, this may not always be the case as some of the collective prefer to instead cover their face without using the well-known mask as a disguise. Some anons also opt to mask their voices through voice changers or text-to-speech programs."*

.

.

>>>>*"On January 19, 2012, the U.S. Department of Justice shut down the file-sharing site Megaupload on allegations of copyright infringement. Anons responded with a wave of DDoS attacks on U.S. government and copyright organizations, shutting down the sites for the RIAA, MPAA, Broadcast Music, Inc., and the FBI."*

.

.

>>>>*"In the wake of the fatal police shooting of unarmed African-American Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, "Operation Ferguson"—a hacktivist organization that claimed to be associated with Anonymous—organized cyberprotests against police, setting up a website and a Twitter account to do so. The group promised that if any protesters were harassed or harmed, they would attack the city's servers and computers, taking them offline. City officials said that e-mail systems were targeted and phones died, while the Internet crashed at the City Hall."*

.

.

>>>>*"In March 2016, Anonymous was reported to have declared war on Donald Trump. However, the "Anonymous Official" YouTube channel released a video denouncing #OpTrump as an operation that "goes against everything Anonymous stands for" in reference to censorship and added "we are for everyone letting their voices be heard, even, if the person at hand ... is a monster.""*

.

.

>>>>*"In late 2017, QAnon, a pro-Trump group claiming to be the "real" Anonymous, first emerged on 4chan. In response, anti-Trump members of Anonymous warned that QAnon was stealing the collective's branding."*

.

.

>>>>*"Since 2009, dozens of people have been arrested for involvement in Anonymous cyberattacks, in countries including the U.S., UK, Australia, the Netherlands, Spain, and Turkey. Anons generally protest these prosecutions and describe these individuals as martyrs to the movement. The July 2011 arrest of LulzSec member Topiary became a particular rallying point, leading to a widespread "Free Topiary" movement."*

.

.

>>>>*"QAnon is a disproven and discredited far-right conspiracy theory alleging that a cabal of Satan-worshipping cannibalistic pedophiles is running a global child sex-trafficking ring and plotting against U.S. president Donald Trump, who is fighting the cabal. QAnon also commonly asserts that Trump is planning a day of reckoning known as the "Storm", when thousands of members of the cabal will be arrested. The conspiracy claim is entirely fictitious. QAnon supporters have accused many liberal Hollywood actors, Democratic politicians, and high-ranking government officials of being members of the cabal. They have also claimed that Trump feigned conspiracy with Russians to enlist Robert Mueller to join him in exposing the sex trafficking ring and preventing a coup d'état by Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and George Soros. The QAnon conspiracy theories have been amplified by Russian state-backed troll accounts on social media, as well as Russian state-backed traditional media."*

.

.

>>>>*"Although preceded by similar viral conspiracy theories such as Pizzagate,[23][24] which has since become part of QAnon, the conspiracy theory began with an October 2017 post on the anonymous imageboard 4chan by "Q", who was presumably an American individual;[25] it is now more likely that "Q" has become a group of people acting under the same name. A stylometric analysis of Q posts claims to have uncovered that at least two people wrote as "Q" in different periods. Q claimed to be a high-level government official with Q clearance, who has access to classified information involving the Trump administration and its opponents in the United States. NBC News reported that three people took the original Q post and spread it across multiple media platforms to build an Internet following for profit. QAnon was preceded by several similar anonymous 4chan posters, such as FBIAnon, HLIAnon (High-Level Insider), CIAAnon, and WH Insider Anon. Although American in origin, there is now a considerable QAnon movement outside of the United States, particularly in Europe."*

.

.

>>>>*"QAnon adherents began appearing at Trump reelection campaign rallies in August 2018. Bill Mitchell, a broadcaster who has promoted QAnon, attended a White House "social media summit" in July 2019. QAnon believers commonly tag their social media posts with the hashtag #WWG1WGA, signifying the motto "Where We Go One, We Go All". At an August 2019 rally, a man warming up the crowd used the QAnon motto, later denying that it was a QAnon reference. This occurred hours after the FBI published a report calling QAnon a potential source of domestic terrorism—the first time the agency had so rated a fringe conspiracy theory. According to analysis by Media Matters for America, as of October 2020, Trump had amplified QAnon messaging at least 265 times by retweeting or mentioning 152 Twitter accounts affiliated with QAnon, sometimes multiple times a day. QAnon followers came to refer to Trump as "Q+""*

.

.

>>>>*"The number of QAnon adherents is unclear as of October 2020, but the group maintains a large online following. In June 2020, Q exhorted followers to take a "digital soldiers oath", and many did, using the Twitter hashtag #TakeTheOath.[42] In July 2020, Twitter banned thousands of QAnon-affiliated accounts and changed its algorithms to reduce the conspiracy theory's spread.[43] A Facebook internal analysis reported in August found millions of followers across thousands of groups and pages; Facebook acted later that month to remove and restrict QAnon activity,[44][45] and in October it said it would ban the conspiracy theory from its platform altogether. Followers had also migrated to dedicated message boards such as EndChan and 8chan (now rebranded as "8kun"), where they organized to wage information warfare in an attempt to influence the 2020 United States presidential election.[47] Following Trump's loss to Joe Biden in the election, QAnon beliefs became a part of attempts to overturn the results and Trump's loss, culminating in the storming of the United States Capitol, leading to a further crackdown on QAnon-affiliated content on social media."*

.

.


>>>>*"Anonymous is a decentralized international activist/hacktivist collective/movement that is widely known for its various cyber attacks against several governments, government institutions and government agencies, corporations, and the Church of Scientology."*

.

.

>>>>*"Project Chanology (also called Operation Chanology) was a protest movement against the practices of the Church of Scientology by members of Anonymous, a leaderless Internet-based group. The project was started in response to the Church of Scientology's attempts to remove material from a highly publicized interview with Scientologist Tom Cruise from the Internet in January 2008."*

.

.

>>>>*"The project was publicly launched in the form of a video posted to YouTube, "Message to Scientology", on January 21, 2008. The video states that Anonymous views Scientology's actions as Internet censorship, and asserts the group's intent to "expel the church from the Internet". This was followed by distributed denial-of-service attacks (DDoS), and soon after, black faxes, prank calls, and other measures intended to disrupt the Church of Scientology's operations. In February 2008, the focus of the protest shifted to legal methods, including nonviolent protests and an attempt to get the Internal Revenue Service to investigate the Church of Scientology's tax-exempt status in the United States."*

.

.

>>>>*"Reactions from the Church of Scientology regarding the protesters' actions have varied. Initially, one spokesperson stated that members of the group "have got some wrong information" about Scientology. Another referred to the group as a group of "computer geeks". Later, the Church of Scientology started referring to Anonymous as "cyberterrorists" perpetrating "religious hate crimes" against the church."*

.

.

>>>>*"Members of Project Chanology say their main goal is "to enlighten the Church of Scientology (CoS) by any means necessary.""*

.

.

>>>>*"Project Chanology began its campaign by organizing and delivering a series of denial-of-service attacks against Scientology websites and flooding Scientology centers with prank calls and black faxes. The group was successful in taking down local and global Scientology websites intermittently from January 18, 2008 until at least January 25, 2008."*

Guy Fawkes was an English Catholic executed for a 1605 attempt to destroy the House of Lords. In V for Vendetta, a rebel against a near-future fascist regime uses the mask in his public appearances and distributes many of its copies to the population to enable mass protests."*

In response, Turner sued 4chan, 7chan, and other websites; however, he lost his plea for an injunction and failed to receive letters from the court."*

Miang claimed that the report "seems to confuse /b/ raids and motivational poster templates with a genuine threat to the American public", arguing that the "unrelated" footage of a van exploding shown in the report was to "equate anonymous posting with domestic terror"."*

A later post said: "Check the news for Port Orchard, Washington, in a few hours. Her son will be home from school soon. He'll find her, then call the cops. I just wanted to share the pics before they find me." The victim was Amber Lynn Coplin, aged 30. The suspect, 33-year-old David Michael Kalac, surrendered to police in Oregon later the same day; he was charged with second-degree murder involving domestic violence. Kalac was convicted in April 2017 and was sentenced to 82 years in prison the following month."*

The suspect took pictures of the victim's bloodied deceased body and posted it to Discord and his own Instagram page. The photos were widely shared on Instagram and other sites, particularly on 4chan where many users mocked and celebrated her death, saying she deserved it and praising the killer while depicting Devins as a manipulative young woman. Devins had developed a small following online and was a 4chan user herself."*

QAnon was preceded by several similar anonymous 4chan posters, such as FBIAnon, HLIAnon (High-Level Insider), CIAAnon, and WH Insider Anon.[31] Although American in origin, there is now a considerable QAnon movement outside of the United States, particularly in Europe."*

Those are just a few highlights of what the Wiki has to say about the Chan Movement and why so many users on Twitch and Twitter tac the word "chan" to the end of their username.


If you want to read the full aticle to find out all the horrors of this horrendouse group of terrorists, here is the link:

As of this discovery a new policy is now in place on my channel.. all mods are to **IMMEDIATLY BAN** any one and everyone they see with the word "Chan" at the end of their name, wither that user has ever visited my channel or not.


I want my mods to take ANY user they see on ANY channel ANYWHERE on Twitch to just ban those usernames from my channel as soon as they see them.


#From today forwards ALL USERNAMES ending in "Chan" are to be banned on sight.


#I do not want any member of this terrorist orgination near my channel.


#The Chans are horrible people and I want nothing to do with any of them.


#Anyone found to be a supporter of ANY Chan is to be banned from my channel, even if they do not have "Chan" at the end of their username.


On a side note... do you remember in June 2016 when a group of crazy protestors showed up in my driveway chanting that my family was "Satan worshiping pedophile cannibals of the Scottish Mafia"? Well, it says on that Wiki:


>>>>*"QAnon is a disproven and discredited far-right conspiracy theory alleging that a cabal of Satan-worshipping cannibalistic pedophiles is running a global child sex-trafficking ring and plotting against U.S. president Donald Trump, who is fighting the cabal."*

.

.


Does that me those people in my driveway that day were QAnon members?


Scary... that group included 2 Mormon Bishops, the Old Orchard Beach Town Manager, several motel owners from Old Orchard Beach, an excavation owner in Old Orchard Beach, and 2 Old Orchard Beach Town councillors... uhm... does that mean Old Orchard Beach is infested with QAnon members?


I think I am finally starting to understand the weird accusations that get tossed at me and my family... like being called "Scottish Mafia" when we are not, and being called a "BDSM Dominatrix" when I am not, and being called a "Satan Worshiper" when I am not, or being called "pedophiles' or "cannibals" when we are not.


I never understood these accusations or what the possible source could have been, but I had never heard of QAnon until 2 days ago when Twitter announced they banned 70,000 QAnon members off Twitter, following the terrorist attack in Washington D.C. earlier this week. 


The Tweet my mod was referencing, was a Tweet where I asked "What is QAnon? I never heard of it before."


Okay, so now understand WHERE they got the accusations from, they apparently say those things about everyone. But the question still stands: Why me? Why my family? Why my Twitch channel? How did I become a target for members of such bizarre, psychotically deraged terroist group? 


Also... it says QAnon started in October 2017... but those people who were in my yard, the first time they showed up was April 10, 2015, and they arrived again May 14, 2015, June 12, 2015, September 12, 2015, and each time they showed up the group was bigger. They continued to show up throughout 2016.


Each group was lead by a masked man who always kept his face hidden. The group members called him "Mark" and "Mark Who Needs No Last Name"... he was a tiny elderly man about 5'9" very skinny, and had unkept white hair. He always arrived driving a backhoe, which is the same backhoe that drove over my house August 8, 2013. He was the one seen shooting at me and my family in several livestreams. He was prone to showing up while I was livestreaming... I think he used my livestream schedual to determine if I was home, and I also think he was trying to "get his 15 minutes of fame" because he was always trying to get himself and his rifales on my webcams.


All of it was recorded via those livestreams *(yes, this is why several Witcher 3 VODs are not available for you to watch... it's the ones with the terrorist attacks on my family in them.)*, and all the video footage forwarded to local police, who in turn forwarded it to the FBI, and the FBI assigned Agent Andy Drewer to the case June 26, 2016.


All of that was a full 2 years before the October 2017 date in that article.



As of this discovery a new policy is now in place on my channel.. all mods are to **IMMEDIATLY BAN** any one and everyone they see with the word "Chan" at the end of their name, wither that user has ever visited my channel or not.


I want my mods to take ANY user they see on ANY channel ANYWHERE on Twitch to just ban those usernames from my channel as soon as they see them.

#UPDATED to answer this question:

......................

*How is it you have never heard of 4chan or QAnon? I thought you were a dark webber? Everyone always talks about how you know all the darkest deepest sites on the internet. 4chan is like the biggest dark web website ever.*

......................

Uhm... WHO exactly says I know dark web websites and what exactly is a dark webber?

I've been on the internet since 1996, but I build websites, I don't visit websites. In my 25 years on the internet I've probably visited fewer than 100 websites total, if that many. In fact, I can list off the top of my head websites I visit and use:

* Amazon

* Blogger/BlogSpot (as a blog writer, I don't read blogs by others)

* Deviantart (as a blog writer, I don't read/view content by others)

* eBay

* FaceBook

* FanFiction.Net (not visited since 2011)

* LinkedIn (as a blog writer, I don't read blogs by others)

* LiveJournal (as a blog writer, I don't read blogs by others)

* MySpace

* Nexus

* Pinterest


* SoapBox

* Squidoo (ceased to exist 2013)

* Twitch

* Twitter

* WordPress (as a blog writer, I don't read blogs by others)

* YouTube

* Zazzle

Wow... not only didn't reach 100, I didn't even reach 20.

I find it rather laughable that you or ANY ONE would think of me as someone who knows "dark web" web sites.

When exactly do you think I have time to browse the internet to even look for any website at all?

I work 80 to 120 hour weeks. 

I publish 4 novels a year, dozens of short stories a month, 2 to 3 non-fiction articles every day, paint on canvas with acrylic art for **[new merch products](https://www.zazzle.com/store/eelkat)** weekly, write for 12 blogs, and a manage/edit/write for 200 websites **[like this one](https://www.eelkat.com/)** which I built from the ground up and am the ONLY person managing/editing/writing for... AND I'm a retail merchandiser for HallMark travelling hundreds of miles a week to set up displays at WalMarts, CVS, Post Offices, WalGreens, and Khols all over New England. On top of all of that I make YouTube videos AND stream on Twitch.

So, explain to me WHEN you think it is that I have any free time for browsing the internet? 

I don't know who told you I was a "dark webber" or that I would know anything about "dark web" web sites, but, honey... check their username... did it say "Chan" at the end of their name? Yeah... THEY are a "dark webber" who visits "dark web" websites, not me, as can be clearly seen by them putting "Chan" at the end of their username.

You might want to reconsider where you get your information about me, who you get your information about me from, and fact check the source of the information you get about me.



If you could recommend I watch one VOD that best represented your channel, which would it be?

This one....

Writing Gypsies & Nomads In Fantasy Fiction




Ads by Share-a-Sale

In doing my daily rounds of looking for ideas to write about, I can across a reader suggestion, that said: "I don't know if this was already suggested, but this page has great insights on writing fantasy, it's cliches and annoying stuff. What are your thoughts on it? https://curiosityquills.com/limyaael/"

I go to the page expecting an article. Nope. I get there and find one of the most amazing indexes of a long series of rants that are very similar to my own. It's a list of 424 blog posts written by a woman known only as Limyaael. Now I've seen this sort of thing before and usually I'll read an article or two then move one, but not this time. This time I plan to take every blog post and comment on it with why I either agree or disagree with her views.

Why?

Because of one article she wrote. This one: Gypsies & Nomads

Gypsies are a common staple of Fantasy novels. And 9 times out of 10 they are written by an author who has their head stuffed so far up their ass, I wonder if they have encountered anything other a stuck up white prick like themselves before or not.

As you know, I am a Gypies and I hate the sick, disgusting, narrowminded, racist, bggoted, mean, steryotyped, and often down right hateful way my people are portraied in novels.

And so when I saw that this Limyaael woman had written and article on how to write Gypsies in Fantasy, well, it was the very first one of her articles I read, because I wanted to find out if she was yet another brainless, biggoted, jackass creep who tosses in Gypsies without ever researching our culture or, is she an inteligent person with a functioning brain and the ability to research a race before including them. This woman, like so very few authors on the planet, not only has a brain in her head, she actually knows how to use it.

And so I went on to read a few more of her articles and yep, this woman actually thinks before she writes about a culture, a gender, a sexuality, a religion, and so on. I like this woman way of thinking and I wish more authors out there would take her advice before they slap sterotypes in their novels. 

But, anyways, here you go, me responding to her series of blog posts on how to write Fantasy novels... 

Writing Gypsies & Nomads In Fantasy Fiction

1) Why are they wandering?

She starts right in with raising this point: 1) Why are they wandering? 

And though she doesn't give the correct answer to why real world Gypsies "wander", she does make many valid points.

The thing most authors fail to consider, when creating a Gypsy character, is the fact that Gypsies are Jewish, and "wander" because they are constantly being slaughters by arrogant, egomaniac, anti-semitic, white power shitheads, also known as Christians.

Gypsies are homeless because it's rare for Jewish people to be settled for long before Christians rape their women, murder their children, and raze their homes. This has been going on since the 800s and continues today in 2018.

Families fleeing in terror, running for their lives, is NOT a nomadic wandering race. 

Gypsies do not nor did they ever live on the road willingly. 

Gypsies do not nor did they ever enjoy living in tiny tents and wagons. 

The Roman Soldiers, The Templar Knights, The Catholic Church, The Spanish Inquisition, The British Lobsterbacks, The Puritans, The German Nazi's, The Baptist Church, The American Ku Klux Klan, The Sovereign Citizens, are just a few of the biggest names in anti-semitic terrorism, known for their tormenting and slaughtering of Jewish families.




And so I second her question, by asking YOU, dear reader, WHY are YOUR Gypsies wandering?

Who is chasing them? How many of their family members have been killed? How many houses were destroied?

If you want to write about normads, then pick a damned nomadic race to write about.

HINT: it's ain't Gypsies. We aren't nomads. We're farmers of horse and sheep. The ONLY time we travel, is when we are fleeing the white power jackasses of the world.

3) The gypsies/wanderers don’t have to be fortune-tellers.

In this section she has a list of things authors use when describing Gypsies in Fantasy novels:

  • Crystal balls
  • Tarot cards (lovingly described)
  • Tealeaves
  • Brightly colored wagons
  • Knowing smiles
  • Weirdly smelling incense
  • Wailing fiddles
  • Evil cackles

We do in fact use crystals, though they are gemstones that fit in the palm of your hand, not the big clear glass balls of movies.

Tarot is NOT a part of our culture, but we do read cards. Just not tarot cards.

Reading tealeaves is a Chinese art. We Gypsies are NOT Chinese and therefore have no tradition of tealeaf reading.

Brightly coloured wagons... here, have a picture of my car and motorhome:

moving on...

Knowing smiles? What in the heck is a knowing smile? I'm an author. I've written 130+ novels and 2,000+ short stories. All of them featuring Gypsy characters like myself. I've never written the term knowing smile. I've no clue what a knowing smile even is or means.

Weirdly smelling incense? It's likely not incesnes, but rather the clove and anise that we use to wash our hair, and the patchouli and sandalwood that we wash our clothes and bedding in.

Wailing fiddles? That implies music, and possibly dancing. Music and dancing are taboo in our culture. We do not perform music, play instruments, sing, or dance, these things are seen as evil in our traditions.

Evil cackles. Actually, several people have told many women in our clan (myself, my mother, and both my grandmothers included) that our laughs sounded like evil witchy cackles and people have mentioned that our style of laughing is unusual and unlike how normal people laugh... I then have to ask what it is they mean by "normal" people, to which they say "real people, you knowm us Humans, not Gypsies".

Hmmm.

I'm so tired of people telling us we are not Human or real people.



In this same section she also states:

Look hard at your gypsies.
Look honestly.
Is the only reason they’re there to provide a fortune-telling scene?
If so, expand their role or cut them out. 

I have to say, I agree.

We Gypsies have lives you know. We do stuff.

Heck, we even eat drink and sleep. 

Who knew?



I really liked this woman's article about writing Gypsies until she got to this stupid, know noting, head stuffed up her ass line:

4) Try making the gypsies really different.
Dark-skinned human wanderers are usually the only gypsies in an author’s world, whether by accident or design.

...

Why not make the wanderers pale-skinned? Probably because the vast, vast majority of human fantasy characters are pale-skinned, of course, and so pale skin isn’t “exotic” enough.

I'm sorry, here, have a picture of a real live Gypsy... 

me:

Here, have a few more...

At what point are we Gypsies "dark skinned"?

Please explain it to me.

And, I'd like the Ku Klux Klan to explain it to me too. It'd be nice to know WHY they blew up my house with a bomb for not being white, when my skin is 10 shades paler then their white sheets are.

And then she says this...

Why not gypsy dwarves? Well, because it’s hard to conceive of dwarves traveling about in wagons and telling fortunes and dancing around fires, that’s why!

Dancing around fires?

I'm sorry, when has any Gypsy anywhere EVER danced around a fire?

When.

Please, tell me WHEN?

Dancing is taboo in Gypsy culture.

Dancing is FORBIDDEN in Gypsy culture.

We Gypsies DO NOT dance!

WHO WE ARE IS THIS:

Do remember: The Roma ARE NOT Gypsies and nor are the Travellers. And no amount of calling them Gypsies is ever going to make them Gypsies, and no amount of reality TV calling them Gypsies is ever going to make them Gypsies either. Why? Because the word Gypsy means: "The People who Lived among the egyptians" and guess what? The Roma did not live in Egypt any more than the Travellers did.  Neither group are Gypsies because neither group lived with the ancient Egyptians.

There actually is an actual RACE who are called Gypsies, and no they are NOT the Romas. It is highly offensive to the Gypsies for you to call yourself a Gypsy when a simple DNA test will prove you have no blood link to them at all.

Do note that Gypsies, Travellers and Romany are THREE separate groups.

There are millions of nomadic people who inaccurately are called (by themselves and by others) Gypsies.

I am a Gypsy.

I am NOT a Roma

Roma ARE NOT Gypsies.

I am NOT a Traveller

Travellers ARE NOT Gypsies either.

Few people realize that there is an ACTUAL RACE whose name is CORRECTLY called Gypsy.

And of course, because Gypsy is a race of people, they can be male or female, adult or child.

A race differs from a culture or ethnicity in that race has distinct physical features. For example: Gypsies have olive toned skin, most have dark hair and green eyes, most are very short and tend to be on the chubby side. The have high cheekbones and long noses. You can identify them to look at them, without seeing their cloths or habits, which therefor makes them a unique and distinct race.

Gypsy is a racist term when it is used to describe Romas, Travellers, hippies, carnival people, boatmen, or ANY other group of nomads who are not by DNA blood ACTUAL Gypsies.

Travellers come in English, Welsh, and Scottish, in addition to Irish, though the Irish Travellers are the most common, most liberal, and most likely to be seen by outsiders.

The Welsh and English Travellers are far fewer population wise, and tend to be more secretive. While the Scottish Travellers are the smallest group, and also the most reclusive type of Traveller.

Travellers are the most likely to travel cross the country, though many are now settled.

Travellers are white people (often blond or redhaired) of Celtic (Roman/Italian) descent.

Romany are more reclusive then Travellers, thus why you see Travellers more often then Romany. Some Romanies still travel, but many are now settled. There are dozens of sub-groups or types of Romany, each with their own culture, and name.

The Romany are brown/tan people with dark hair and dark eyes, they are of Indian/Hindi descent and many groups still speak and dress in various Indian/Hindi derived languages. They settled in Romania for a few centuries, thus how they came for be called Roma/Romany. Many of them later settled in Spain and adopted Spanish language and habits  into their culture, thus why many today speak Spanish and are Catholic.

Gypsies are the most reclusive of all. RARELY having contact with outsiders. They also don't travel. ALL Gypsies are settled farmers. TRUE Gypsies (the actual race, not the slang "lifestyle" term that gets slapped on other races) are listed on the registry of Endangered Indigenous Peoples. There are fewer then 2,000 confirmed to still be alive as of the last census count in 2012. 

The Gypsies are often called "The Scottish Gypsies" because Scotland was their most recent extended stay location. They are also often mistaken for Scottish Travellers, who have no relation to them at all.

The Gypsies originated in Iran, in Persia, during the time of King Darius (the king mentioned in the Bible, who put Daniel in the Lion's Den). The Gypsies descent from Daniel, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego of the Bible. (Not them directly, but from the priests of the order they created.) According to the stories, after the "Lion's Den" incident, King Darius made Daniel, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego high priests in his court. While there, they founded a "secret order of priests" known as The Brotherhood of The Magi (aka The Wise Men at Jesus birth in the New Testament.)

The Magi, under the rule of Daniel, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego were seen by the people of Persia as powerful wizards and soothsayers, known for telling the future, divination, interpreting dreams, and speaking one on one with the spirits of the dead. They were also noted for their outlandish red, blue, and purple silk robes heavily embroidered with silver and gold sun, moons, and stars. This is where the myth that Gypsies are "magical" or have "psychic powers" came from. (And boy is that a myth I wish would go away! Yie!  Every week, I have to deal with some American walking up to me and saying: "So I heard you were a Gypsy. Can you sense anything about ____. What do you see happening about ____" It's incredibly annoying and frustrating how many people think the word Gypsy is interchangeable with psychic or witch. But it's our starting out as a branch of the Brotherhood of the Magi that started that stereotype, and no matter how hard we try to explain to people we are not born psychic, Americans simply refuse to accept or believe that. 

When King Darius' empire fell, The Brotherhood of the Magi gathered up their families and fled to Mongolia. In Mongolia they were (centuries) later captured by the Vikings and lived as "slave shaman" to the Vikings. They eventually escaped and ended up in Scotland, where they assimilated into the Pictish society.

When the Celts (Romans/Christians of Constantine) invaded Britania and killed most of the Picts, the Brotherhood of Magi once again took their families and fled back to Egypt. They lived in Egypt for centuries, where they became known as "the Gypsies" which meant: The people Who Lived Among the Egyptians.

In the 1400s they attempted to go back to Scotland and were chased by the Celts to Germany. During this short time in the British Isles, the Irish called them both "The Little People" and "The Leprechauns". Because they are very short, most of their women not much over 5'1" and most of their men under 5'9" and because of the elaborate curly toed red silk beaded shoes they made (the word Leprechaun means "shoe maker").

In the 1500s they tried to return to Scotland again, this time being captured by the British loaded onto a ship and marooned in the New World in about 1530. They settled in land that is now known as Old Orchard Beach, Maine, and lived among the Native American peoples. In the 1640s they were given a land grant by King George. In 1911 they legally bought the land from the American government (I still have the original receipt). In 1996 Stephen King's film crew decided to film the movie Thinner on their land. 

Today in 2015, the Gypsies still live on the land they have been on since 1530 and still wear the old Persian style heavily embroidered silk robes, and are still seen by locals as powerful psychics, known for telling the future, divination, interpreting dreams, and speaking one on one with the spirits of the dead... even though we don't do that sort of thing at all these days. Much of our culture and traditions remain virtually unchanged for centuries. Because of the way we dress and look and because of our extremely olde style "Arabian" fundamentalist traditions, they are often mistaken by outsiders as being Muslim.

This one little TINY group of people from Persia, is the ONLY group that is truly and correctly the race called The Gypsies. If you were not born into this group, you are not a Gypsy, no matter what you look like, how you dress, what your hobbies are, or how much you travel. These people did live among the Egyptians for many centuries and they were named Gypsies by the Egyptians, and no other group on the planet has the right to use the word "gypsy" to describe who they are.

The Roma are NOT Gypsies.

The Travellers are NOT Gypsies.

Hippies are NOT Gypsies.

Only the small sub-group of the Persian Brotherhood of the Magi (aka The Magicians) who lived for many centuries in Egypt, and were named by the Egyptians as Gypsies, can truly and correctly lay any claim to the title of Gypsy.



And can we side track this here for a minute please, and look at the line where she states this:

Thinking about wandering elves, I realized how strongly I tend to associate elves with a sense of place, of permanence, despite all the unwarranted fading that they do in a lot of fantasy books. The stereotypical elves stay in one forest or mound or fairy kingdom all their lives, unless they go adventuring with the raggle-taggle band in which they’re Token Elf. But why? Think it’s hard to justify a band of immortals traveling for years around a human country? Come up with a justification that fits, and I bet it’ll be a doozy.

This woman is supposedly well read in Fantasy fiction, has hundreds of blog posts where she makes claims to likely having read every Fantasy book to ever include Elves or Gypsies, and yet, she makes THAT statement.

Well, clearly she never read the Quaraun series, you know a series of 130 novels published from 1978 to 2018, about a Gypsy who is also an Elf, and spend 750 years wandering all over the planet.

No story in the Quaraun series takes place in the same place. He travels all over the freaking world, and wait a minute, let's go back to that other thing she said here...

Why not gypsy dwarves? Well, because it’s hard to conceive of dwarves traveling about in wagons and telling fortunes and dancing around fires, that’s why!

Bullgaar the Dwarf, travels with Quaraun for 8 volumes of the series and FarDarrig (a very Dwarf-like Leprechaun) travels with Quarraun off and on again in over a dozen novels of the series, AND FarDarrig himself owns, travels in, and lives in a Vardo aka a painted Gypsy wagon.



Moving back into comparing real Gypsies with Fantasy ones, and we find she says this...

On to the other commonly used trope, the half-gypsy child whose mother is a villager and whose father was the love ‘em and leave ‘em type. Usually, everyone hates her. Woe. Then she does something heroic, and the villagers instantly accept her, or she goes back to her father’s people and is instantly accepted, hooray.

She continues on with a rant on how half-breds and bastards in general are over used, but never once does she adress the fact that until very recent years adultry was punishable by death in Gypsy culture.

Death.

Beheading to be specific.

You fuck a woman, she better sure as hell be your wife, because you'll lose your head.

In rare instances, you may only be castrated and not executed.

Beheading adulterers was still being practiced as recently as 1957.

There is no such thing as an unwed mother of a half-Gypsy. 

The fact remains that Gypsy culture is largely asexual. Sex is seen as a sacred act used to consummate a marriage (we do not have weddings in Gypsy culture, no, no big wedding dresses either. Sorry, but the Big Fat Gypsy Wedding Franchise is fake, has no real Gypsies on it and fooled the hell out of stupid people who look to TV for accuracy.) Sex is done very rarely, with many Gypsies going decades between intercourse. The culture as a whole is VERY anti-sexual.
