Here is a copy and paste of the message Chandler Gerber left in my in-box today.
Dear ‘That lady down in Texas’,
I unintentionally found out who you are by seeing a post on Facebook this morning. This is only the second time I’ve ever responded to somebody ripping me. A couple years ago I was on with Katie Couric and you said “it really chapped your a** that Valetta had to share the stage with me, a murderer. I have spoken with Valetta and her family several times and I speak about them in my upcoming book. They are great people, along with the others who appeared in From One Second to the Next. I know that only a few people read what you write, but even so, why would you bash on me for raising awareness with my story? Why not be thankful that I was able to show people why they shouldn’t text and drive? Why not support my message instead of calling me a murderer? I’ve done more good for the cause of fighting against distracted driving than you ever will. Why would you shoot at a fellow soldier in this fight? I don’t get it. I just don’t get it. Ill just send you a message from ‘That guy up in Indiana': stop telling the four people who read your blog how high of an i.q. you have, stop ripping on people who are more successful than you, and stop talking about things and people that you know nothing about.
And here is my response to Chandler Gerber and the other four people who read my blog;
You sir, are a sociopath. You mowed down an Amish buggy and after viewing the documentary you were in, your clammy appearance and your arrogant stance about this vehicular manslaughter sickened me to the same level Bruce Jenner and his callous reaction to killing Kim Howe did. Your message to me this morning is all the proof I need to know how effective my work is because I got a reaction from you. Ha ha I win.
If you want to measure success by killing innocent people and not to beat a dead horse, but you killed their horse too. You take the cake buster.
The kicker is when you go to their farm with your camera crew.
That was more than I could take. Now, I do not know why people react the way they do to other people. I can only speak for myself. When I said it sickened me to see your story in the documentary Valetta Bradford and her family was in, then it sickened me to see your story in the documentary Valetta Bradford and her family was in.
Werner Herzog did a brilliant job in the documentary, I’ll give him that. I have watched the documentary a few hundred times and when your part comes on, I fast forward it.
Some people cringe when they hear the voice of Gilbert Godfry. I think all that is hilarious. Gilbert Godfry’s voice does not bother me.
Some people cringe from Kenya West. I know I do not like any of the Kardashians. I never have. It has to do with the arrogance in which they carry themselves. When Kenya West demanded everyone stand up during his concert and humiliated a man in a wheelchair in the process I wrote about him too, specifically for the so-called four readers of my Lady blog.
The fact is, I do have a high IQ and I was smart enough to never use a hand held device while behind the wheel. I only mentioned my IQ in my latest diet blog, so you’ve been investigating me. You didn’t hack into my WordPress account or you would know how many views my work has had.
My webpage views are in the thousands because I am a hard worker. I am an educated woman so I know about marketing, social media strategies, but more importantly I am a writer who has no blood on her hands.
Speaking of which, did you ask permission from Valetta to use ‘the Story of X’ in your book. Why you still riding on the coat tails of the victims of distracted driving? You sir, are on the other side of the coin. Just because you appeared with someone a couple of years ago does not a permanent easement make.
Your modicum of success is an illusion. Werner Herzog featured you to show the other side of this deadly epidemic. It’s a cause I am very passionate about and I praise everyone who is an innocent that takes up the banner. As for me, I am only in this fight to promote this family. I do not promote myself, thus the anonymity of that Lady down in Texas I never fooled around with Facebook before I contacted Valetta to give her a hand in her campaign. If and when Valetta asks me to step down, I will close my Facebook page. I am a volunteer. My work is all behind the scenes stuff. I have never nor do I propose to ever profit from any distracted driving campaign. Unlike you. Everything about you makes me cringe.
I am a hard worker. I have spent hundreds of hours writing articles, building WordPress websites, tagging photographs, maintaining websites, linking websites, composing fundraisers, contacting potential sponsors etc., etc.
That is my contribution to this fight and unless called upon to defend my stance, I do not go about bragging about this. I did mention a couple of times that thanks to me the search engines have now buried the racist websites I found during my initial search to find this spokeswoman, this mom that my heart went out to because a distracted driver mowed her son down in the confounds of a school crosswalk.
Had I never stumbled across that racist website spewing nonsense, I would have never began to build even one single website, so we all have our place and now I have come to the part where I put you in your place – oh ye careless taker of life.
Do not censor me. The internet is not policed. I enjoy my rights to freedom of speech and will speak how I really feel on a variety of topics. There is nothing you can do about it. Not everyone is going to love you. Not everyone is going to stroke your enormous ego. You really should spend some money on a publicist to censor you because you are beyond stupid in your statements this morning.
Geez. Well the world is filled with the arrogance of man. You got more than a strong dose of that. Good luck exploiting the victims of distracted driving with your book.
Your attempt to rip me a new one failed miserably. I’ll turn the tables on you and tell you ‘You don’t know me’.
that Lady down in Texas
Ps. If Valetta feels the need to sue you for profiting off of her son’s story, I’ll be on the team that rakes you over the coals.
