We were rather late to the show in the case of the latest SRA claimant/wannabe cause célèbre Becki Percy, but it seems that the Twitter tide has now begun to turn against the plucky young woman from Hull.
We really only became aware of Poor Becki via a blog which has been hilariously caricaturing some of her more ludicrous claims. You can catch up with Becki’s latest adventures at BeckiPercyBlogs, if you’re so inclined.
Her claims in a nutshell are more or less the same as the claims of every other publicity-seeking SRA hoaxer: child sexual abuse on an industrial scale; chased through forests (while wearing a camera on her head)(yes, really) and raped by people whose descriptions have varied over time; watched babies murdered in the thousands; feared being killed if she told; felt unable to tell police/social workers/anyone because they were all in on it, etc. etc. etc.
You know the drill.
However, Becki’s case differs from the rest in that she managed to self-publicise on Twitter and YouTube (not to mention various crowd-funding sites), and found herself a family in the U.S. of A. who were willing to help her escape her allegedly evil parents and the rest of the cult back in Hull.
The twist: Becki’s first new family (henceforth known as Family #2, as distinct from her Bio Family) were card-carrying Pizzagators, who were ever so willing to spread her lies, which seemed to verify what they already believed with all their little hearts.
Becki travelled to the States, was questioned by border guards, thrown into detention for 14 months, and now sports a lovely ankle bracelet to keep track of her whereabouts until her appeal hearing.
Oh, and Family #2 didn’t quite work out as planned, so once she’d bilked them for all they were worth and left them facing bankruptcy proceedings, she moved on to Family #3, who live in Texas and have not only an over-abundance of gullibility, cash, and guns, but three strapping young sons of marriageable age, if you catch our drift, say no more, say no more.
Darling of the MAGA set
Becki has become something of a pet to people who support things like #Pizzagate (now aka #Pedogate apparently) and #QAnon—in other words, people gullible enough not to ask too many uncomfortable questions, and obedient enough to swarm and drive off anyone Becki tells them to.
No one has questioned her overmuch. That is, until a Twitter user who goes by the name of @AnOpenSecret began suggesting that young Becki’s story was less than plausible:
We admit, we were impressed. It seems that @AnOpenSecret has a bit of street cred amongst the #Pizza/Pedogate/QAnon set, by virtue of having made a film about an alleged child sex abuse ring in Hollywood. And perhaps it’s the success of adult SRA claimants such as Becki Percy in clouding the issue of child sexual abuse which makes us a bit gun-shy of such films.
They do point out the issue which we have been harping on about for three years now:
“Liars like @becki_p20 with fantastic stories take credibility from real victims”.
We assume they mean “fantastical”, but we’ll let it slide. In any case, kudos to them for pointing out that Becki’s story lacks credibility. We hope their 22,000+ followers will sit up and take notice.
It looks as though some already have: While Becki has ridden rough-shod over the truth for several years now, it looks as though her grip on the imagination of her fans might be about to come to an end.
