You’ll recall that ex-Metropolitan Police officer and self-proclaimed whistle-blower Jon Wedger recently expressed his displeasure that we have been asking him awkward questions about some of his claims. As if to drive the point home, he blocked EC on Twitter for daring to question him…and then asked, “Why is Hoaxtead so mean to me?” (or reasonable facsimile), secure in the knowledge that we’d be unable to answer.
Yesterday, he went on a full-fledged hissy fit, demanding that Lucien Greaves, founder of the Temple of Satan, explain his connection with this blog.
(He doesn’t sound bitter about Greaves’ 15,000+ followers at all, does he?)
Greaves immediately sussed out the source of Wedger’s annoyance:
He followed up with a message to his Twitter followers (all 15,000+ of them):
Then he explained who Wedger is:
And just in case they hadn’t worked out what Wedger was about, Greaves explained a bit further:
Well. That was…direct and to the point.
Wedger tried the old “I have no animosity towards you (even though I have just picked a Twitter fight with you because I’m feeling butt-hurt about Hoaxtead Research having caught me out in a few porkies recently”) angle:
And when that didn’t work, he went all pursed-lips and judgy:
Greaves got the last word, in response to a comment from one of Wedger’s followers (read in reverse order):
We know that all the Hampstead hoax pushers who never / rarely / sometimes read this blog will be clutching their pearls by now and gasping, “We knew it! That blog is run by Satanists!” (It’s not—EC is Anglican and Scarlet is atheist, but we don’t expect the hoax pushers will let little things like facts get in their way.)
For those of you who are not irony-impaired, however, we thought you might enjoy this look at the new film about the Satanic Temple, called “Hail Satan”, which gives a sense of what the organisation is all about.
