A few days ago we expressed disappointment that the troofer community, which had seized upon the Hampstead SRA hoax so voraciously at the outset, seemed either blind to, or unaware of, Ella’s new claim that she’d kind of forgotten that her ex-husband, Mr Draper, as well as his current wife, and the son he and Ella had together, were not actually in the so-called “cult”.
For anyone following Hoaxtead closely, it’s clear that this is a major turnabout.
The children mention their older brother being in the cult on several occasions. They mention him during the original videos made en route from Morocco:
Ella: What is decided?
Child P: We decided that we shall stop killing babies and we shall stop doing sex. It’s just going to be pointless and it’s just going to have to be going to jail and go back.
Ella: So what are we going to do? We are going to protect other babies and children, huh? And save all the children that are involved.
Child P: Yes. And [Xxxxx] was in it.
Child Q: When you face the fear you get less fear.
They mention him during the Jean-Clement Yaohirou recording:
Child Q: Me, and my sister, and my brother don’t have tattoos.
Jean-Clement: No tattoos?
Q: No. If my mum was doing it, if my mum was touching me, I would have had a tattoo right now.
JC: Why is that—
Abe: Tell him about your brother [Xxxxx], tell him about your brother.
Q: Yeah, he doesn’t have it yet, no.
Abe: But tell him what he does.
Q: He does…he touches us, he does, um, sex to us.
Abe: Tell him about…listen to this. Her first husband, basically they picked her. They picked her. They selected her, the mother, they selected her. First husband, he’s one…(aside to child: Shush!)…he’s one, he’s an investment banker. He does, he has a baby with her, and the boy, he done sex with the boy, 17 years….Her first husband. She left him. Her first husband told the second guy, go and get her.
And they mention him during the initial police interview videos:
Child P: Xxxxx is just my big brother, but he’s not really, like, he knows about this, but, no he doesn’t really like doing it.
DC Martin: What do you mean?
P: My big brother, Xxxxx.
DC Martin: And how old is Xxxxx?
P: He’s about 17. But he doesn’t, he’s not really included cause he doesn’t really live with us.
So the children’s initial allegations all contain references to their brother as a cult member. And in her March 2015 “witness statement”, Ella named him, as well as his father and step-mother, as cult members.
The backlash begins
Yesterday we learned that word has been spreading like wildfire throughout the troofer community that Ella has contradicted her children’s own evidence. We’ve been reliably informed that several more videos are in process from other sources, but the “first out of the starting gate” award must go to an American YouTuber who goes by the name Plymouth Fury.
Let’s just say he’s not a happy camper:
Plymouth Fury’s second video on the subject features an image of RD’s children, so we’ve broken the link. To watch, just delete the space after “youtu.be/”: https://youtu.be/ evKUZoKHkH0
Losing their religion?
In a curious way, we almost feel sorry for those who are now finding out that they’ve been duped.
For many, Hoaxtead served as validation of their passionate and deeply held belief that the world is run by Satanists and/or Luciferians, etc.
When RD’s children described their alleged torture at the hands of evil cult members, they were venerated as deities/sacrificial lambs in a bizarre religion.
The religion, which we can call “Hoaxteadianism” for want of a better term, involves complete belief in the words of the children. Their every utterance (except when they say that the whole thing isn’t true) must be accepted as holy writ. With the children now unavailable to the general public, Abe and Ella are their earthly representatives.
And now, true believers in Hoaxteadianism have been confronted with the unthinkable. Saint Ella turns out to have been a fraud, and for the worst possible reason: she wants access to Mr Draper’s money, as she and Abe are in dire financial straits. Worse still, her admission calls into question the children’s initial allegations.
And Hoaxteadianism cultists must now be asking themselves: “If she could lie about that, what else might she have told us that is untrue?”
It’s not easy to have one’s religious beliefs shattered. Those who have had their faith destroyed—such as Megan Phelps-Roper, formerly of the infamous Westboro Baptist Church, or Deborah Feldman, who grew up in an ultra-orthodox Jewish community—describe the sense of sadness, confusion, anger, and disorientation that come with realising that what they accepted as truth was in fact untrue. Then there’s the ostracisation from their former faith communities, the sense that they can never return, but must remain outcasts, not quite fitting into the non-troofer world, but unable to return to the comfortable world of Hoaxteadianism, either.
While Plymouth Fury currently seems to be clinging to the tattered remains of his belief in the hoax, it looks as though Ella’s duplicity has driven a spike into what he had formerly accepted as gospel.
And once the first wedge is driven in, it’s really only a matter of time before the entire edifice comes tumbling down.
