Dunn’s demented demands for debate designed to duck dissent

Well, yesterday was a whirlwind of activity around the Hampstead hoax. Actually, it started late Monday night, when Thomas “Join us or die!” Dunn made an appearance on the YouTube Channel, “The System is Down”.

Funnily enough, when he was not on his home turf, Dunn managed to be downright civil. He didn’t claim that RD is a “baby-eating baby-sacrificing head-chopping-off maniac molester”; nor did he threaten that anybody who disagreed with his loopy campaign must “join him or die”. Granted, he was still spewing nonsense and disinformation about the Hampstead SRA hoax, but we expected no less.

The hosts of the show, one of whom was inexplicably dressed in a clown costume, accepted Tom’s foolery holus bolus, and seemed genuinely flustered by the negative back-chat they were receiving from commenters like Flo Destroyer, Redbill Phil, Grobnob the Troll, and others.

However, once Dunn was safely off the air, they did accept a phone call from Grobnob, who was very well-spoken and put across the case for sensible things such as “doing research” and “informing themselves”, which apparently had not previously occurred to the hosts of the show.

Dunn on the run: Flo Destroyer’s challenge

As we noted yesterday, Flo Destroyer had issued a challenge to Dunn: Flo promised to donate £100 to a children’s charity if Dunn would debate him face-to-face on Flo’s channel. Now, anybody who knows Flo should be aware that he is a very reasonable and reasoned host, who doesn’t indulge in abuse or deranged histrionics, so this ought to have been an easy win for Dunn: appear on the show, talk civilly to a person who holds a different view, and ensure a children’s charity receives a donation.

Instead, though, Dunn put up this piece of piddling prevarication:

These are my terms. If you want a debate, if you want something from me, this is the way it’s gotta be. Other than this, I will ignore you, okay? And I…you’re gonna be blocked. Because we have no more time. We have no more time, we’ve wasted too much time on this, you’re done. You’re done, okay?

Here’s what you have to do. You see this? This is me. This is a video. You respond to me. You respond to me in a video, okay? With your face, and you identify yourself. You identify who you are, you say your name that’s on your birth certificate. Okay? And I don’t even know if they got birth certificates in the UK, I’m gonna assume they do. Okay?

So. You say your name, you identify yourself. You don’t have to say where you live, okay? I’m going to assume from the accent that I heard last night that you live in the UK. Whatever. I don’t care, okay? Um…

You don’t have to give us your address. But you have to give us some way that we can verify that you are a real person, that you are not using a fake name. This is me, you see here? [holds up his driving licence with all but his face and name blocked out] This is my face. This is an Ohio driver’s licence, my name is Robert Thomas Dunn. Okay? I’m a real person, I have nothing to hide. …

You verify who you are, in a video to me, I’ll take you seriously. One, okay? And then I’ve got people standing by in the UK that can verify your identity. 

This was a bit puzzling, to say the least. If Dunn thought there was a chance Flo wasn’t a real person, then what did he think he was?

A cat (or possibly two) in fancy dress?Cats in formal wear 2018-10-09

Two mice and a giant robot suit?The Brain in robot suit 2018-10-09

A criminal penguin cleverly disguised as a rooster?Feathers McGraw 2018-10-09Perhaps they do things differently in the United States, but Dunn’s demands struck us as faintly ridiculous.

As commenter Smut Clyde noted, “Doxxing is an obsession with Truthers and stoners. It’s a kind of ‘Rumpelstiltskin delusion’… they are convinced that when you learn the Real Name of something, you gain Magic Power over it”.

But Dunn’s demands didn’t stop there:

So, uh, once we verify that you’re a real person, and, uh, then we can move on with step two. Step two is show up, face-to-face, just like this, this is how I deal with 99% of my interviews. This is just the way that it goes. I been doin’ this for, uh, a year and a half, okay? There’s been like two people that wanted to uh, hide themselves. And I think maybe only one, and that person came out later. …

So, anyway. Face-to-face interview. On a third-party site. I think maybe we both agree that ‘The System is Down’ forum, video show, would be something that would work. I’m open. I wanna have a conversation with you, okay?

So. Just so we’re clear. Identify yourself, face-to-face, third-party, be civil. 

Dunn seems to have a different idea of “face-to-face” than the average person, who might be forgiven for thinking that it means “in the same room (or on the same YouTube channel) at the same time”.

His version, it seems, means, “You make a video about me, and then I make a video about you, and I never have to be held directly to account for my delusional and/or harassing statements; nor must I answer any uncomfortable questions you might ask. Okay?”

In any case, Flo is a very reasonable chap, and decided to go along with Dunn’s bizarre conditions. Yesterday evening, he was interviewed by one of the hosts of “The System is Down”, and we think you’ll agree that he acquitted himself extremely well.

Thanks to Flo for putting himself out there, and for standing up against harassment and hysteria.

As for Dunn, so far there’s been nothing but silence. For which, we think you’ll agree, we can all be profoundly thankful.

  1. These hicks in obscure US towns use the safety of distance so they can falsely accuse, berate, harass and spew invective without anyone really being interested in traveling within spitting distance of their basement hideaway.

    When they travel to where the adults are and try out their bullying tactics it suddenly gets a bit real and although I wouldn’t name such a person the experience of one Rupert Quaintance comes to mind recalling that after making videos saying he was going to punch up a few Hampstead residents and even pondered that he may like to abuse a child to see what all the fuss was about, it ended up with an invitation from Her Majesty to inspect a prison cell for 9 months.

    Dunny is just another bloviating Alex Jones wannabee and now the world has wised up to that creep and lawsuits from victims are landing on his doorstep his influence is waning. A reminder also as well: the Thomas Dunns of the world also breach US Federal and State laws re internet harassment and every day lay down the evidence of their illegality. It’s just a matter of time before one of them gets their collar felt and is made an example of by a fed-up judiciary. (again not mentioning names in respect of police investigation but the initials APD comes to mind).

    He also didn’t say “I’m coming for you” in reference to the innocent parents and teachers of Hampstead, as he had done in a previous video. I think he was too busy measuring the melting point of butter with his mouth to bother.

  3. Just finished listening to Flo on the system is down stream in full. So far that’s 2 of us doing our best to present the case as it actually occurred, and not the insane exaggeration of the subject matter the children were coerced into presenting. While I wouldn’t encourage or recommend people jumping into the arena of appearing on streams it’s certainly making for a more two sided view and is making it difficult for certain parties to carry on insisting the satanic narrative is factual. Nice one Flo, look forward to hearing more of these laid back and casual approaches to the case in opposition to the sulphurous hellfire diatribes certain people are known for. Put me down for an appearance on after dark when I go online again (been off broadband since June, using only mobile phones) if you like, when I get the line reactivated. Till then only option if anyone wants me on a stream / podcast / chat is via a phone call. I’m perfectly happy not to bother doing anything off my own back but will take one for the team now and again. I did the call the other night to try and balance a very skewed presentation and was struck at how similar me and Flo approached it, from a humanist pragmatic and common sense angle. I predict tom Dunn won’t appear on Flo’s channel anytime soon and will continue squirming for excuses to deny any attempt to challenge his behaviour. Hopefully viewers of that channel are going to appreciate the considered and softly spoken opinions of Flo and myself when making their minds up. Remember a podcast takes thirty or sixty minutes to make but stays online for years. What we did this week is plant a couple of seeds, how they’ll fare we’ll see in a few months.

      • Well done to both of you.

        I think that unfortunately you are on a hiding to nothing though! If you look what people say in comments their belief in satanic baby killers is very much tied up with their religious beliefs. It is a matter of faith. That is a very hard thing to argue with. Mostly I have a live and let live attitude and I personally know very nice people who follow various religions. The US evangelical style is odd to my cynical UK eyes. Roughly 25% of the U.K. is atheist/agnostic/irreligious.

        The only comparison I have is with Christian West African friends from say, Nigeria, but topped up with a lot more American exceptionalism and with a lot less tolerance and humour.

        I am willing to bet a half eaten bag of midget gems that many people who describe themselves as Christian hardly ever step foot in a church too! Or read a bible!

        The Slacktivist blog, a Christian focussed one, has an interesting Satanic Baby Killers tag, for a Christian skeptic viewpoint,

        Well done though. Some of these people think they are in a holy war. So, there’s that.

        We need an office whip-round at our GCHQ home to get a few quid to a children’s charity. As long as it isn’t Samaritan’s Purse, I am easy.

  4. Great write-up as always. EC.

    Regarding your point about the co-host (the main host’s brother, btw) being “inexplicably dressed in a clown costume” on Monday night’s show, I’m not sure whether you saw my comment yesterday but the main host (Dan?) did clarify this at the time, saying that they were both dressed in troll fancy dress (‘Dan’ was dressed as a stereotypical nerd), to reflect the topic of that particular broadcast:

    Whether they’ll win any comedy awards for that is open to debate. I for one can confirm that my sides remain intact.

  5. I’m not seeking to defend ‘Dan’, btw. Although I think he handled last night’s Flo phone-in very competently and eloquently (kudos to him for that), I still dispute his claims to be impartial over the Hampstead case. This is from one of his YT videos:

    Plus as Surreal Hustle pointed out yesterday, he’s been allowing Dunn to spout his slanderous Hampstead bullcrap despite the fact that by his own admission he doesn’t know much about the case. Where’s the due diligence here? Surely some simple fact-checking should be a basic precaution for a broadcaster when people’s reputations and safety are on the line. And after three extensive interviews with him on the subject, one would have thought that at some point he would have bothered to at least check whether Dunn’s claims were reliable.

    It also concerns me greatly that Dan gave out a Hoaxtead associate’s phone number on the aforementioned Sunday night show. He said it was accidental and promised to beep it out but I’ve just checked and he hasn’t.

    He was also pretty blasé about the incident when I raised it in the video comments (and he’s since deleted both my question and his response, rather tellingly). His exact words were: “Hey, we’re just humans doing the best we can. I think we made that painfully clear tonight, but I really appreciate everyone chiming in. Haha.”

    Were I a conspiraloon, I might start to suspect that this little ‘mishap’ was deliberate 🙄

I’d never recommend going on streams and it’s very useful to have a good example of poorly skilled operators letting personal info become public. If one person learns from it then it’s served a purpose.

    • Absolutely agree.

      I would not trust these people as far as I could throw them.

      How dare they repeat unfounded accusations of child sexual abuse and satanic ritual abuse as if they were fact and then say “oh well we don’t really know what is going on, we haven’t researched it, we are just giving everyone an equal voice”. What a load of toilet. I have encountered this kind of blasé attitude towards serious issues countless times from people involved in very nasty criminal networks and cults. They feign stupidity and naivety in order to carry on doing very bad things in the hope that people won’t notice or will give them the benefit of the doubt. I don’t buy it.

      How would they like it is the tables were turned and I set up a youtube channel and uploaded lots of videos claiming that they were part of a baby munching, blood drinking paedophile cult? How would they like it if when challenged I claimed that I hadn’t actually done any research but someone told me that it was true and I was just giving them a voice because of equal opportunities, fairness, reasons etc?

        I gather someone else from here is offering to show Tom his ID too now in order to be accepted for a face-to-face discussion and all I can say is rather him than me.

        As for ‘Dan’ the presenter, he incurred further distrust from me in last night’s show, when he said on air that the people in the chatbox were screaming at each other, implying that we were being rude and aggressive, when in fact it was probably one of the most calm and level-headed discussions I’ve seen, despite the fact that there were two Bible-thumping hoax-pushers in there with polar opposite views to ours. Even Relayer and I were being polite 😁

    Hopefully they will though, take a non biased view & realise the logic of ‘hundreds of babies’ going into a Church & not coming out ever is one of pure stupidity, that they do not just research the children’s testimonies but look at the whole made up & ridiculous stories in it’s entirety.

          At the end of her video she says it’s a Caution+3, so I wouldn’t expect an arrest tomorrow. Main difference with +3 is you are entitled to a solicitor. She seems to indicate that it is probably going to be a real one!

          Not that it’s my place to advise her, but if she is being asked to explain her ongoing harassment, it is probably not a good idea for her to have her solicitor hand over her dossier detailing her harassment!

          I wonder if this is the result of analysing APD’s personal emails? 😂 Although any perusal of her recent Facebook posts would probably be sufficient.

I once pointed out to him that when he posts people’s addresses, he’s not just endangering the innocent people he’s harassing (and let’s face it – he knows they’re innocent people), but he’s also endangering their families, including their children. Naturally, being a child abuser himself who doesn’t give a shit about children’s safety, he continued posting innocent people’s addresses and calling for people to pay them a visit. He’s even posted photos of people’s houses too, though my guess is he’s got those wrong too.
