Crazy People Are Dangerous

Posted on | November 8, 2023 | Comments Off on Crazy People Are Dangerous

Well, this is a sad story: Fred “Bubba” Copeland was the mayor of Smiths Station, a town of less than 7,000 people in Lee County, Alabama. He was also a freakazoid, secretly pursuing transgender fantasies that he posted online using a persona he called “Brittini Blaire Summerlin.”

Somehow (the details are not clear to me) information about “Brittini Blaire” got in the hands of an Alabama web site, 1819 News, which published a lengthy story Nov. 1 about Bubba/“Brittini.” Two days later — last Friday — Copeland shot himself to death when deputies showed up at his house to do a “wellness check.” As might be expected, many have criticized 1819 News for “outing” Bubba/“Brittini,” but before you go jumping on that bandwagon of blame, consider this: In his/“her” online persona, Bubba/“Brittini” appears to have harmed real people that he/“she” knew in real life, using their names and photos:

Ansley Summerlin, who alleged Copeland used her identity, told WTVM her name and likeness appeared on multiple porn sites.
“I had some people start sending me photos that were posted of me on multiple porn sites, I guess you could say that also had pictures of ‘Brittini,’ as well,” she said. “And he proceeded to use my first and middle names on these sites. And I believe there are about nine sites now that have five or six photos of my face and my name across the net.”
The second alleged victim, identified as a “local hairstylist in Smiths Station,” also discussed her likeness being used in Copeland’s writings.
“It said my first and last name,” she said. “And it was basically describing the way that I look and intensified, I guess, as a porn star. And it went into very graphic detail. I didn’t get past the first page because I honestly couldn’t stomach it.”

The left-wing media are trying to bury the sordid details:

Since the late Smiths Station Mayor Fred “Bubba” Copeland killed himself last Friday following reports of his transgender alter ego, left-wing media outlets and public officials have jumped to defend his behavior, often leaving out key details in the process.
On Monday, political commentator for The Daily Wire Matt Walsh called out those blaming conservatives — and 1819 News in particular — for Copeland’s suicide.
“Bubba Copeland was a deeply troubled man. Also, Copeland’s last act was a choice that he made, the wrong choice, but a choice all the same,” Walsh began during the final segment of his Monday show.
He said many in the media were using “carefully crafted euphemisms” to help Copeland avoid any responsibility for his actions that led to him choosing to take his own life. . . .
Walsh continued: “It’s important to underscore that he uploaded all this material voluntarily to the internet while he was serving as mayor, and since everything that a public official uploads to the internet is newsworthy, especially when it’s perverted and depraved, that’s an important fact to highlight.” . . .
“They’re acting like someone hacked his hard drive or [wiretapped] his phone calls when, in fact, what happened was that a website looked at material that Copeland himself had posted publicly for everyone to see,” Walsh said. “But this notion that Copeland was ‘outed’ somehow became the framing of every major news outlet and prominent politician. They’re all pretending like Bubba Copeland was an innocent victim, a paragon of the community.”
He continued: “For years we’ve been told with a straight face to believe a lie that men with this very obvious fetish are in fact women simply by virtue of the fact that they have this fetish. They’ve repeated this lie over and over again with maximum sincerity as if it’s gospel. But lies that are this grandiose and this absurd inevitably break down. They’re not sustainable. One way or another at some point, liars like this must admit the truth, if only by accident, and with the suicide of Bubba Copeland, that’s exactly what’s happened. The trans movement stands for the idea that a woman is someone who wears his wife’s clothes for fun and uploads some photos on Reddit to arouse himself and quote ‘blow off some steam,’ as Copeland said. That’s the extent of the trans ideology’s definition of womanhood.”

Exactly. It may seem cruel to report on the details of what Bubba/“Brittini” did in his/“her” online persona, but to omit those details, or to obscure the reality with euphemisms, is just dishonest.

R.I.P., Bubba/“Brittini.”
