It always makes me uncomfortable and more than a little sad, when I am left with little alternative but to remove a long-standing link I have published to another website, from here.
This site publishes very few links as it is, and via those links, this site associates itself with other sites I trust, and can usually vouch for, and recommend to readers, due to either having personal interaction with the authors/owners, or have been a regular reader for many months/years.
Removing a link leaves a bad taste in my mouth, and hammers home even more, the harsh reality that there are so very few websites that I personally, can actually trust out of the millions upon millions that exist online.
That being said, my reasons for removing the link which is the subject of this post, is not going to be what most people think, and as this is the Outlaw, which has since it’s inception, always strived to view situations and events from a wholly unique and alternative viewpoint – I shall endeavour to explain why.
I am sure that many people who read this site are aware of the current internet firestorm surrounding the ‘Alternative Media Guru’ Don Ferguson, AKA Zen Gardner and his recent, and very public online ‘Outing’ as a one-time member of a cult known as the ‘Children of God’.
As someone who has followed Gardner’s work for a number of years, this great ‘revelation’ is not really breaking news, as Gardner has previously discussed it at length on more than one occasion, and has fully explained the reasons why he was drawn in at the beginning, and more importantly, why he got out at the end.
His well-documented past as a cult member is not the reason I am removing the link to his website from the Outlaw, neither is the rabid pursuit of Gardner by the online ‘Paedo Hunters’ and the hypocrites that exist within the laughingly entitled ‘Truth Movement’ and the ‘Alternative Media’, who are positively frothing at their collective mouths at the possibility that Gardner may lose the lofty position he holds within their ranks, and more importantly …. And let’s be honest here; some of his vast and loyal audience – to them.
The reason(s) I am removing the links to Zen Gardners website are twofold:
The first being that on May 15th 2015, Gardner appeared at ‘AV6’ (The Alternative View) and shared a platform with a number of people who collectively, have done their utmost to not only purposely supress and dilute the truth, but also to distract, to harass and to bully and to spread as much fear and distrust among their audience as is humanly possible.
And to empty their wallets of course, never forget that.
I will not post the link to the event for obvious reasons, but if you are truly desperate to see it, you can pop along to Ian Cranes’s self-titled website and purchase it as part of a ’16-DVD Box Set’ for the bargain price of £69.99/$92.47, which in these austere times is money far better spent elsewhere …. in my opinion.
My second reason; Is that immediately following the story about his one-time cult membership taking the Alternative Media by storm, Gardner made the conscious decision to be interviewed by none other than one Angela Power Disney, who single-handedly runs the YouTube channel ‘Angela’s Caches’ which broadcasts on the ‘Conscious Consumer Network’ which is in turn, run by Mel Ve, who has an easily-researched history of pushing a number of pernicious hoaxes and spreading disinfo, and who actually charges the lucky ‘broadcasters’ given access to her CCN network.
Ms Disney, who alongside her other online ‘misdemeanors’, has contributed more than most to perpetuate the ‘Hampstead Satanic Child Abuse/Murder Ring’ story, which has been proven beyond a reasonable doubt to be a complete hoax, and has had a singularily unpleasant and long-lasting effect on a large number of completely innocent Hampstead residents.
So my reasoning is this;
If Zen Gardner can knowingly share a platform with proven charlatans without doing any research whatsoever, and not even be aware of the very well documented history of Ms. Disney, then how can the Outlaw in all conscience, continue to publish a link to his website?
Which is a great shame as Zen Gardner was a guy I once respected and took on board a lot of what he had to say.
