“The federal trial of Abu Hamza al-Masri, a radical Islamic cleric accused of conspiring to kidnap Americans in Yemen and planning to establish a jihad training camp in rural Oregon, began in New York with opening statements on Thursday”.
Abu Hamza’s right-hand man, bodyguard and fellow propagandist of hatred & violence was a man named Abu Abdullah, aka Attila Ahmet.
For many years, on a daily basis, Abu Abdullah preached hatred of America and Americans, as well as hatred of all non-muslims everywhere on the planet. Abdullah openly advocated violence and encouraged Muslims in his audience to commit atrocities, calling such acts a “religious duty”. He was convicted in the UK on three counts of inciting/soliciting murder.
There are several videos which captured Abu Abdullah inciting hatred and violence in public, but I’m particularly interested in a video by Davebones titled “Preachers of hate”. In the first three minutes of the video, you get to see and hear Abu Abdullah using the Satanic Ritual Abuse related lie about “occult groups” sacrificing little children at Bohemian Grove, to incite hatred and murderous violence amongst his followers…
Satanic Ritual Abuse claimants falsely claiming to have participated in child sacrifice at Bohemian Grove include convicted child molestor Paul Bonacci and apologist for convicted child abusers David Shurter.
I didn’t care much for his acting in television shows or movies, but I like him when he’s just being himself on a talkshow or an interview. He strikes me as very ‘real’ and genuine, for some reason.
I particularly like Tom Arnold when he’s talking about his childhood sexual abuse experience. He says that, from the ages of 4 to 7, he was repeatedly sexually abused by a 19 year old babysitter. Arnold’s accusations against this person haven’t been validated through a trial and criminal conviction, but nevertheless I don’t have a problem believing in the truth of what he claims took place.
I believe Tom Arnold’s child sex abuse victim narrative.
I don’t have any problem believing that the overwhelming majority of convictions for sex crimes against children, sex crimes against women, and sex crimes against men, are valid and that the testimony of the victims was honest and truthful.
I have serious problems, however, with demands that unconditional belief must be extended to any and all sex crime victim claimants. I found a moderate version of this demand in a discussion about memory science by Carol Tavris, which will serve for a simple illustration of this demand rant: “One of the bright, glaring, non-negotiable truths I have learned, though, is to believe survivors. Believe them, even if they don’t remember everything. Believe them, even if they remember almost nothing. Believe them, even if the person they say raped them seems like the nicest person in the world to you. Believe them, even if it shatters your whole world to do so. Believe them, even if they don’t want to share details, or press charges, or ever talk about it again. Believe them, even if their story sounds implausible to you.”
No. I’m not willing to accede to such demands for unconditional belief.
But, why not? Why not grant unconditional belief to any and all sex abuse victim claimants? Superficially, at least, extending unconditional belief would appear a simple act of kindness & generosity – one that would cost me nothing and seemingly could do me no harm. So…if I’m really sincere about believing that almost every sex crime conviction is valid, if I can extend belief to Tom Arnold even without the evidence of a supporting conviction, why not grant unconditional belief to every victim claimant?
Right here, in this youtube video: “David Shurter speaks for testify project…” You don’t even have to watch much of it, Shurter makes the claim only 20 seconds in.
On his blog, Shurter now says that his father was not involved in cannibalism and any suggestion that Shurter said he was would be “so way off base”. But the evidence is right here for you to see and hear. Shurter says that his father was High Priest of a satanic cult operating in Omaha…”and as his son I participated in and witnessed cannibalism, blood sacrifice and murder at his side…”. He can’t even remember what lies he has told about his family & childhood – all the proof that anyone needs, to know that this man is a liar and a fraud!
David Shurter defends convicted pedophiles and slanders child victims!
This hypocritical fraud calls himself a child sex abuse victim advocate, which just makes my blood boil. He rants on & on in his blog postings about child sex trafficking being a huge problem and a terrible evil that nobody cares about but him, but IN HIS BOOK – “Rabbit Hole” – he calls convicted pedophiles Walter Carlson and Mark Andersen his friends and claims they were “set up” for wrongful prosecution by child prostitutes and their parents. Quoting from his book;
“It was also during Project Clean-up that Mark and Walt were charged with crimes against children, which I found to be ridiculous. Mark had invited three hustlers to spend the night on his living room floor and had either inadvertently or intentionally touched one boy’s butt. The boy’s parents tried to extort money out of Mark and failed, then turned to the police and pressed charges.”
“Suddenly, the Omaha World-Herald, whose owner Harold Andersen was reportedly involved in the Larry King/Franklin Credit Union scandal, began touting Walt, the shyest person I’d ever met, as the Pied Piper of Pornography, and Mark and Walt were proclaimed as menaces to society by the local media”.
“Having to buy a plane ticket two weeks in advance, I spent the next two weeks sobbing, waiting to fly back to Omaha to say goodbye to everyone in my life. Omaha media stories that week said David was killed by his roommate Mike James, for reasons unclear; John Joubert was convicted and sentenced to death; and Mark Andersen and Walt Carlson were convicted and sentenced to spend years in prison”.
“No real evidence linked Mark and Walt to any crime, but Omaha had become a circus dictating justice from a kangaroo court. The fact that the parents of the boy had tried to extort money from Mark before going to the police (which came out in court), was insufficient to save him and Walt from prison”.
Shurter calls himself an advocate for child sex abuse victims, but when his friends were charged with crimes against children, did he believe the children? NO! Even now, when he wrote this book, he dismissed the child victim’s disclosures as “ridiculous”. He goes on to refer to the three boys, who were 11 and 12 years old*, by the derogatory term of “hustler” rather than as child sex trafficking victims – which is what they would be, if they really had been prostituting themselves.
*[Quoted from Mark Andersen’s appeal, click on State vs Andersen link further down; “Mark G. Andersen appeals his jury convictions and sentences on two charges of first degree sexual assault and three charges of sexual assault on a child. The victims were three preteenage boys in Omaha, J.M., B.T., and S.M…Andersen at time of trial was a 38-year-old homosexual male; his alleged victims, J.M., B.T., and S.M., testified truthfully to Andersen’s sexual behavior toward them; and at the time the offenses occurred, J.M. and S.M. were each 11 years old, and B.T. was 12 years old.”]
He insinuates that because the boys were supposedly involved in prostitution, that would make them more likely to be lying about his good friend Mark Andersen abusing them! Some sex trafficking victim advocate he is – what a fraud! Shurter shows no understanding at all, that when an adult pays a child for sex that makes the adult guilty of child sex trafficking, and that the child is always victimized by such a transaction. He even commits the infamous sex crime denialist rationalization of minimizing the seriousness of the children’s accusations, saying that Andersen might have either “inadvertently” [HAH!] or intentionally “touched one boys butt” – but only one boy and he only touched it, he seems to be saying.
Shurter then goes on to slander the victim’s parents as extortionists, and dismiss the victim’s disclosures as payback for Andersen not paying the alleged extortion! He repeats this slander several times, even falsely claiming that it was established as fact in the trial.
Most outrageous of all, Shurter dismisses all of the victim’s disclosures and testimony, and all of the child pornography seized by police, as: “No real evidence linked Mark and Walt to any crime”.
Well, that’s a crock of BS – as this appeals court ruling against Mark Andersen demonstrates with great detail and thoroughness –
“Each boy’s testimony corroborates the testimony of the other two. All three boys testified as to the defendant’s invitations to stay overnight and the fun places the defendant took them. Each boy related the sexually explicit content of the movies they were shown until late at night and testified of being awakened by the defendant’s sexual acts. Two victims testified that the defendant required them to remove all but their underwear before sleeping in his bed with him. This evidence establishes a “modus operandi” and helps corroborate the victims’ testimony. Andersen’s testimony in large part also corroborated the victims’, except he denied sexual misconduct”.
“Sexual assault on a child is an extremely serious and deplorable crime. Andersen’s suggestion that he should receive a lesser penalty because he chose as his victims children whom he claimed had already been subjected to sexual contact is abominable. Andersen, in his brief, points to nothing in the record indicating that two of his victims were, in fact, previously subjected by others to the type of sexual abuse that Andersen inflicted upon them”.
“Neither the trial record nor the presentence investigation reflects any mitigating factors justifying lesser sentences for Andersen’s criminal conduct as determined by the jury in its verdicts. If anything, considering the magnitude, number, and frequency of the crimes the record shows Andersen committed, and considering the impact upon the victims, as shown by the presentence investigation, more severe sentences might well have been justified”.
“It is great being such an abject failure in my life. I have fucked everything up – accomplished nothing- and lost everyone. I wish I wasn’t such a loser – and that people who know me loved me- but that isn’t the case” – David Shurter
A liar, a fraud and a charlatan – it all began back in 2008, when David Shurter started posting his crappy, slanderous, lunatic videos. This one starts with Shurter holding a sign that reads: “I need help in solving a murder I was forced to commit in 1979″. The first part of that statement – “I need help” – was, and remains, a fact…but all the rest of it is bullshit:
Shurter claimed to be a murderer in these early videos, but also that he did not know the identity of the man he supposedly killed nor did he have any proof that such a murder actually took place. Shurter claimed that he had ‘repressed’ the memory of this murder until 2007, when he allegedly “remembered” the event “in a dream”. In a dream! (As “everyone knows”, dreams are actually 100% accurate recollections of real events in our lives – right?)
As time went on Shurter’s fantasies, or paranoid delusions, or plain old lies, evolved a grandiose mythology about himself and his family during his childhood. His father was supposedly the leader of a large & powerful satanic cult operating in Nebraska, (and Michigan, he would later claim). He had been victimized by the same CIA MKultra mind control cult operating out of Offut Air Base that Paul Bonacci claimed to be a victim of, (although he would later denounce Bonacci as a lying ‘poser’). He was “raised to be the Anti-Christ”, and inherit not only his father’s satanic empire but that of Michael Aquino as well, (he claims to have been personally ‘trained’ in various Black Arts by Aquino). He had been raped and tortured, his family had traveled the US commiting kidnappings, rapes, sacrifices and cannibalism (that’s where the missing children of his childhood went, he claims – he and his family ate them all!).
All of these claims Shurter has made are falsehoods, of course. Only one member of his family supports any of these allegations – a sister, who appears to control David from behind the scenes like a puppeteer. David’s parents were not satanists, there was no maniacal satanic cult operating in Nebraska, there was no Monarch mind-control project operating out of Offutt air base, and David never met or had contact with Michael Aquino in his childhood.
David likes to claim expertise in a wide range of subject matter, but his incoherent and rambling writings and videos betray a near complete ignorance of those subjects. Shurter was confronted about his alleged satanic cult past on a topix forum not long ago. He had been ranting about calendar dates related to lunar cycles and how important they supposedly were to satanic cults. When asked why lunar cycles would be of any importance to satanists, he replied that “everyone knows” lunar cycles are important to them – that it’s “all over the internet”. It turned out, however, that the calendar dates he was so concerned about coincide with SOLAR cycles – not lunar cycles. Even the lowliest acolyte in an occult study group would know the difference between lunar & solar cycles – but not David Shurter the alleged expert on all things occult or satanic, the supposed heir apparent to the entire “satanic underground” of the USA, allegedly trained personally by Michael Aquino. Shurter is nothing but a liar, a fraud and a charlatan.
