[Alternate post title….Wah vs Leo]
Some of you may remember my efforts to help a fellow human being stop making a fool of himself a few days ago. That post, and argument, is here.
As the Supreme Court today made it official that there is no constitutional crisis regarding the definition of a “natural born citizen.” It seems they are comfortable with the case law as it stands, born here (like Obama) or born to two “active” Americans abroad (like McCain). Chief Justice John Roberts will do his duty to swear in Barack Hussein Obama on January 20th, 2009 to the office of Presidnet of the United States.
Knowing this was going to be the case, Leo Donofrio’s mind fell to pieces and he wrote this post on Saturday…
I have archived it in the event that he follows the advice of a large number of posters who suggest he should delete it, as it makes him, and them, look crazy (he already knows he is , which is why he’s comfortable leaving it up…).
After he made that post, I did a bit of googling and reading and found the real motivating factor for his quest. He is pretty sure that Obama is the literal Anti-Christ. He tries to claim that the post linked above, where he hopes “That One” gets assassinated by the beast (yup, Leo, the Secret Service *will* be visiting…they don’t take that stuff lightly) is satire.
Sadly for Leo, the Internet has a long and literal memory. Once you get a couple of the search terms right, the Truth opens before one like a flower in springtime.
To wit…and this is a repost of a comment on my original thread in response to another avid follower of these shenanigans….
Actually, Leo posted the bad news yesterday in this rather stunning admission that he is totally off his rocker, as I suggested in the title of this post….
After he posted that, I was able to find out a couple of his other online aliases and a bit more about him, and read some of his other “work”.
Like his stringent defense of the golf skills of Michelle Wie….
He goes by the name “Jet Wintzer” sometimes according to this the blurb about his band, Schizo Fun Addict. His World Series of Poker bio, thoughtfully linked in the meltdown, mentions the band name. Reading the bands background leads us to “Jet Wintzer” [note: He says “Jet Schizo” in the meltdown, but the band bio says othersie.]
All of this leads to the final nail in the coffin of crazy….
He also considers himself to be an embodiment of the “Holy Spirit” in his post under the pseudonym “the Paraclete.” [ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paraclete ] and is tasked with telling of the coming of the Messiah.
To wit…and this is long….and incredibly revealing….note the “failed lawyer” part…
The following are liner notes to the film I’m submitting to Trigger Street in the next cycle. I think you’ll be into it
I am the author of internet cult phenomenon “ONELOVESTORY”, written under the alias BURNWEED. In 1994 I was at a low point in my life, a failed law career led to me being a singer in a failed rock band inspired by the 89/90 Manchester Rock/Rave explosion.
In 1994 my band broke up and I was in a bad way. Angels intervened.
I was led by dream to the music, art and lyrics of my fav band, Manchester icons, The Stone Roses.
I began to recognize a hidden concept within their work leading me to believe they were angels of the apocalypse and I was called to break the story, something like “Paul is Dead” by The Beatles or the Publius Enigma (Pink Floyd).
I spent 1995-1999 trying to break the story to the UK music press by using art terrorist tactis. In 1998 I realized I was The Paraclete and that my purpose was to prophecy the return of the Messiah. The angels led me to one ALLAN(Reni)WREN, reclusive drummer of The Stone Roses. Needless to say I never had a chance of getting ONELOVESTORY or my music any press as they all thought I was insane and trying to ride on the shoulders of another band’s dream as a charlatan.
So I changed my name and reincarnated myself as Jet Wintzer, leader of a fledgling New York City art noise lofi psychedelic group, SCHIZO FUN ADDICT.
Our music, not obviously tied to ONELOVESTORY because of our going under cover, finally captured media attention breaking through with rave reviews in major magazines such as UNCUT, Q, NME, and NEW YORK PRESS. Only after we released two critically accalimed CDs did I let the media know I was BURNWEED/PARACLETE, author of ONELOVESTORY. EVERET TRUE, Legendary journalist from England’s now defunct MELODY MAKER, having already sung our praises with a blistering rave of our second album “Diamond” in New York Press, finally broke ONELOVESTORY in print in the October 2001 issue of MOJO Mag, the UKs biggest rock publication.
Bizarre as this may sound, it’s all true and has been documented in Usenet newsgroup alt.music.stone-roses since 1996.
In the next Trigger Street I will present a 10 minute film we’ve made about my life and the metamorphosis I’ve gone through as a result of following the angels and trusting them. The film is called BIPOLAR PHOENIX. There are two ten second trailers for it at our site
Love on you all day
Yes…the internet never forgets. Something that will most likely come back to bite *me* some day as well, but there ya go.
He’s a nut. A well-meaning nut, I think, but one who has got this weird idea that Obama is the Anti-Christ stuck very, very deep in his mind. He has been on a holy mission, which is why he’s put so much effort into his windmill tilting and why he totally frickin’ lost it when he lost that battle.
I tried to let him know that I was on to him in the thread on Saturday. He deleted my first couple attempts at congratulating him for leading so many people astray(?), so I quickly crafted a couplet that would both castigate him for deleting my previous responses, while simultaneously appearing to his other readers that it actually supported his position. He posted it, along with high praise….
To be even more clear, denying the right of another to speak does not a stronger argument make.
Eh, “the Paraclete”?
[ed. If I don’t think somebody is being genuine, and is trying to confuse people for the sake of confusion just because they know how to play with words… they don’t get to speak on my blog. As to what’s posted here, I am the boss. If you don’t think I’ve been fair, leave. Word up.]
I got a hearty laugh out of that one, as MY ENTIRE PURPOSE for engaging in this argument was to keep Leo from trying to confuse people by playing with the Word. And yes, I am extremely adept at it.
C’mon Leo….you’ve had ten years….don’t you know who it is yet?
 it takes one to know one, my friend.
