Russell Model’s feedback in full:
Hey there you awakening wonders. Now this isn’t the standard sort of video we make on this channel the place we critique, assault and undermine the information in all its corruption as a result of on this story I’m the information.
I’ve obtained two extraordinarily disturbing letters – or a letter and an e-mail – one from a mainstream media TV firm, one from a newspaper itemizing a litany of extraordinarily egregious and aggressive assaults, in addition to some fairly silly stuff, like my group competition needs to be stopped and I should not have the ability to assault mainstream media narratives on this channel.
However amidst this litany of astonishing quite baroque assaults are some very severe allegations that I completely refute. These allegations pertain to a time after I was within the mainstream, after I was within the newspapers on a regular basis, after I was within the motion pictures, and as I’ve written about extensively in my books I used to be very, very promiscuous.
Throughout that point of promiscuity the relationships I had have been completely all the time consensual. I used to be all the time clear about that then, nearly too clear, and I’m being clear about it now as properly.
And to see that transparency metastasized into one thing prison that I completely deny makes me query is there one other agenda at play.
Significantly when we have now seen coordinated media assaults earlier than, like Joe Rogan the place he dared to take a drugs the mainstream media did not approve of and we noticed a spate of headlines of media shops all over the world utilizing the identical language.
I’m conscious that you just guys within the feedback have been for some time saying ‘be careful Russell, they’re coming for you,’ ‘you might be getting too near the reality’, ‘Russell Model didn’t kill himself’.’
I do know a 12 months in the past there was a spate of articles: Russell Model is a conspiracy theorists; Russell Model is true wing.
I’m conscious of newspapers making cellphone calls, sending letters to individuals I do know. For ages and ages, it has been clear to me or no less than feels to be there is a severe and consorted agenda to regulate these sorts of areas and these sort of voices.
I want my voice alongside along with your voice. I do not thoughts them utilizing my books and my stand as much as speak about my promiscuous sexual conduct up to now. What I critically refute are these very, very severe, prison allegations.
Additionally its price mentioning that there are witnesses whose proof immediately contradicts the narratives that these two mainstream media shops try to assemble, apparently in what appears to be to me a coordinated assault.
Now, I do not need to get into this any additional due to the intense nature of the allegations however I really feel like I am being attacked and plainly they’re working very intently collectively.
We’re clearly going to look into this matter as a result of it is vitally, very severe.
Within the meantime, I need you to remain shut, keep awake however extra importantly than any of that, should you can keep free.
