Within days of Mary’s summer admin work, four different Facebook pages went up attacking her. The goons found an old resume and began to troll her side business of jewelry sales, registering constant false complaints and negative endorsements to dissuade online business. They began to post her home address and phone numbers throughout their sites. And they began to constantly call and spam her place of work, complaining about her behavior and the job she does.
Kristi Lacroix, the “teacher” in the new pro-Walker ad (she is a teacher, but at a charter school) posted on Mary’s jewelry page: “‘Geri Gems’ has a Facebook page. Maybe it is time to post on it so that prospective customers can know who they are buying from.” William Jenkins (assumed alias) then posted on the business page “This company runs a shady operation. If you like cheap ass jewelry from a disgusting slob of a person, this is a place for you. Suck a cock, whore.” And the fun-loving lads in the rightwing circle-jerk Photoshopped Mary’s face on the head of a fornicating pig, expressing that they were “feeling sorry for the other pig” and of course, posted it all over the internet. Dan Briski suggested that they “Definitely need to rattle her tree…” in context of her home address being posted, and Walker Backers Watching Walker Stalkers’ Santo Ingrilli agreed, “yes we should rattle her cage a bit.”
Last summer, this same cluster of Facebook fascists published residence information of another activist, a young woman from Madison, with the suggestion that “people should visit her.” A few days after that, her apartment was broken in to.
This is absolutely disgusting, and it’s shameful that these people aren’t being disowned by their fellow conservatives.
