Yesterday we revealed the identity of Araya Soma (aka Araya Manna, aka Ninon Dulac): turns out her real name is Laurence Lavie, and she’s currently wanted by Somerset police for failing to attend her trial on drugs charges. Today, we thought we’d take a look at one of the lesser-known Hoaxtead trolls, who’s been uttering foul-mouthed death threats since the inception of the Hampstead SRA hoax.
“Jason Streatham” appears to be a lone operator, hovering on the fringes of the Hoaxtead group, though on his Facebook profile he’s friends with a few of the major players: Abraham Christie, Ella Draper, Araya Soma, and Kane Slater. His original Facebook profile pic looked like this: …which just happened to match the photo of one Jason Thompson, who was found guilty of six charges of robbery at knife-point between 2013 and 2014. Jason Streatham’s Google+ and YouTube accounts still sport that mug shot:
From the outset, we suspected him of fake-namery, and duly reported his profile to Facebook…but we met with no joy, and were forced to reluctantly assume that Jason Streatham was this character’s real name.
But these days, his Facebook account looks a little different:
Could it be that after two years of requests, Facebook has finally decided to pull its finger out and do something about “Jason Streatham”? Cue the angelic choir!
Will the real Jason Streatham please stand up?
The key to identifying Jason Streatham lies in his abusive, threatening posts. While he’s known for his colourful language and vile threats, he’s not particularly original, and he is not clever enough to attempt to disguise certain key phrases in his posts.
For example, he is utterly obsessed with someone named John O’Neill, whom he describes as a “bespectacled gay-looking twat” and former British Army personnel. He’s convinced that Snake Logan, aka El Coyote, is in fact this person (he’s wrong, just for the record):(Dear Mr O’Neill, whoever you may be, you have our profound sympathies. It cannot be easy being the object of this lunatic’s homophobic/homoerotic obsession.)
The other day, while swabbing out his screenshot collection, El Coyote came across this interesting bit of memorabilia: And then this:What ho, the deuce you say!
Some of you might recall Neal’s early videos, in which he attempted to rescue an injured badger, only to have the police remove it from his care. If Neal weren’t also a violently anti-Semitic, homophobic drug-addled conspiraloon, the story of his attempt to help the poor doomed badger might have seemed heartwarming. However, we find it difficult to warm to someone who’d post stuff like this:
Of course, it’s possible we’re mistaken, and there are two foul-mouthed fascist homophobic loonies who spend their days obsessing over Liz Rowlands and John O’Neill…but what are the odds?
