Instant Replay: The Accuser Rants On, But Is Already Overcome!
Sadly, I have been made aware of Mr. Jimmy Green’s latest social media attack on my character, intentions and even my family. You may recall, Mr. Greene, CEO/President of Associated, Builders and Contractors- Greater Michigan, is a rabid, liberal/Progressive Marriage Redefinition activist.
Ironically, be boasts of being a Republican for 30 years.
With Republicans like Greene, who needs Democrats?
I think of Alinsky Strategies- 12 Rules for Radicals when I read Jimmy Greene’s slanderous rants.
Distract, ridicule, accuse, isolate, and polarize. It is a very old tactic that I have encountered nationally, as I have stood for limited government and family values.
In Greene’s case, It is also a “instant replay”.
When I did my first tea party speech, back in April of 2011, I faced a deep and hateful response, especially from Jimmy Greene, over my comments about the homosexual demographic and the economic and moral consequences of marriage redefinition.
Greene called it “hate speech”, as did the LGBT community and it’s supporters.
Jimmy was the loudest and most vile of respondents.
He is best friends with Garnet Lewis, an openly lesbian Democrat Official in Saginaw County. Thus, he staged the exact same tactic then, sending emails out defaming me, posting all over social media almost the exact narrative “I made Stacy. How can he do this to me, etc”, as if my Conservative, pro family stances were wrong because of his own contrary world views and because of his relationship with Lewis.
He claimed I was “gay bashing’, accused me of being a closet homosexual, etc.
All the same things he is saying now are literally repeats of what he said then. Ironically, all of the people chiming in now to support his slander- the few they actually are- are the same ones who did so then
Project 21 addressed the issue of public slander back then and did so recently (Note: Project 21 is not in any way involved in any actions I am pursuing regarding the current matter)
Here is a link to that:
The only difference now, versus back in 2011, is that a Black liberal woman made a video about as a part of the angry backlash back then, but the accusations against me were just as bad, if not worse.
Here is that video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C9VdJH8j_Lo
Greene passed the video around and called for people to help shut me down, etc. This certainly was costly to me on so many levels.
Ironically, Greene , after his mentor Henry Marsh died, contacted me and said he was sorry and that he was ashamed at how ugly he had behaved.
I chose to forgive him and, over the course of time, reconciled with him, under the belief that he was sincere in his repentance.Yet, once again, over the same issue- homosexuality and marriage redefinition- he has went on another public slander campaign and makes accusations that cannot be proven or defended, refusing to actually deal with the real issues at the core (typical liberal tactic)
The core issue for me is that I and others have accused him of slander, libel and defamation of character, specifically as it relates to a facebook post implying these women were members of a racist organization that the Southern Poverty Law Center had listed as such.
I consider that a malicious act. So do the women who were listed.
That specific issue will not be successfully lost in this distraction. Not a chance.
I have the threatening texts and facebook inboxes from Jimmy Greene that can prove the malicious intent behind that and it will be proven in time. I will not be discouraged nor dismayed by this repeat of Greene’s petty machinations
That he attempts to bring my daughter into this- posting all over facebook that my daughter is allegedly lesbian. Speaks volumes.
Jimmy Greene has never met my daughter or spoken with her or anyone in her household. He doesn’t know either of my daughters, for that matter.
Any comments or concerns I shared with him privately in the past was supposedly between two fathers who were trying to help their children figure their way through their challenges.
He shared much with me privately that I would never, out of anger, try to use against him or his family. I still won’t do so.
I rarely discuss my daughters in any public forum and my family has absolutely stayed out of any public activism I have been apart of, by mutual agreement.
My daughter, who is only 20 years of age and, like any 20 year old, is in a fragile stage of discovering purpose in life.
She did not deserve to be involuntarily used in Greene’s public assault against me.
She is fiercely private.
Furthermore, she has never wanted anything to do with my public life and this is a prime reason why.
Some people will stoop to any low, including directly harming the children of others, out of personal ambivalence.
I consider it an act of cowardice, on Green’s behalf (or anyone, for that matter), to use a child or the child of another person to attack that person.
I cannot imagine any ABC official would be okay with that, as not one would want their own children dragged into some personal vendetta one adult has with another.
I certainly have not made any remarks about Mr. Greene’s children and family and would never dare think of such a horrible act to do.
It is just a shameful thing to do.
He has also made a number of public allegations about my living arrangements, even as he has never once been to my home, nor have I ever been to this home in the seven years I have known Mr. Greene.
For him to spread slander that my personal lifestyle is contrary to my profession of faith is indeed unproven and malicious.
It is a futile and furious attempt to distract from the original issues I raised.
In any event, I have been championing free enterprise and limited government across the nation. I have done this as a national public speaker. Long before any direct advocacy with or for ABC.See the following link:
I support ABC issues because I am an advocate of the same issues ABC advocates. Not because of Jimmy Greene asking me to. Long after Jimmy Greene is no longer a part of my life, I shall continue to champion free market solutions and free enterprise.
I have also been a national voice on behalf of Right to Work Laws for years now. Greene had nothing to do with my public activism in labor freedom.
Greene alleges that my public stances on behalf of pro family issues and against marriage redefinition have caused ABC to suffer from some kind of criticism from its supporters.
I had not heard any such reports from anyone until now, which is only through Greene’s accusations and public slander.
That doesn’t make sense, furthermore, in light of the fact Greene’s own public and rabid defense of marriage redefinition and forcing businesses to extend marriage benefits to same sex couples in no way serves ABC interests, nor does it likely win support to ABC, in light of the fact most ABC supporters, from a political perspective, are Pro Family Republicans.
He has posted some very mean spirited comments about Church leaders. I cannot imagine that advances ABC’s cause. It seems like a bit of hypocrisy to me.
Greene’s attempt to distract from the fact he is being accused of slander, libel, and defamation of character is in vain. In fact, he simply intensified he aforementioned.
Rather than address the real issues and take some level of responsibility for inappropriate social media slander, Greene has opted to turn this into a “personal grudge match” between he and I. Something he has also chosen to make very ugly, dragging my family member into his personal grudge match against me.
What he did to those two women who were pictured with me was malicious slander. He says that he was joking, but no one who is a direct part of that so called joke finds it funny.
He claims that because he knows me personally, it was not slander against me, even as I was the blunt of a very malicious commentary. He has certainly never called or contacted me to indicate intentions of humor.
Again, I don’t think it is funny at all.
Greene posted a long list of things he alleged he has contributed to my life in the past, stating that this proves he would not slander me.
Abolitionist William Lloyd Garrison helped Frederick Douglass to become a world famous speaker. He taught Douglass the Constitution once Douglass escaped from Slavery. He did a lot for Douglass early in Douglass’ career as an abolitionist.
The problem is that he taught Douglass wrong. He had taught Douglass that the Constitution was a pro slavery document. Douglass discovered later than the Constitution is a pro freedom document.
When Douglass learned this, he began to establish his own ideas and grew beyond Garrison, who hated Douglass for not remaining who, what, and where he wanted Douglass to be. Garrison became Douglass’ most fierce enemy until the day he died.
Greene’s assertion that his early contributions to my path are proof of his current intentions has no substance or logic.
I learned that, while I share many of his views on free enterprise, I do not share Greene’s overall political views, particularly as it relates to family based issues. Sadly, he has never been able to, for some reason, accept that he cannot dictate to me what my values will be and how I should express them publicly or politically.
In closing, I have, as a first step, on behalf of the women in question and two other coalition leaders, requested that ABC makes a statement that it does not condone said behavior from any of its officials.
Stay tuned, as I have no idea what they will do, but I do know that we shall not be accused, intimidated, harassed, or slandered into submission.
“And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.
And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.”- Revelations 12:9-11
Mr. Greene’s satanic rampage is already overcome.
