IT’S THE EPITOME of hilarious hypocrisy that one of the loudest-mouthed crackpots “linking” renowned climatologist Prof. Micheael Mann to “pedophiles” is a former teacher whose career ended in scandal almost a decade ago following his arrest and trial for sending dozens of obscene text messages to a 16-y-o school girl.
Former high school art teacher John O’Sullivan was acquitted after his step-daughter testified she had sent the obscene messages — testimony that the judge said he did not find entirely credible. O’Sullivan then published an autobiographical novel (titled Vanilla Girl) in which he defends what he called “kiddie fiddling” — I kid you not.*
A few days ago, John O’Sullivan, the leader of a group of global warming denier wackos called the “Sky Dragon Slayers” (which includes Tim Ball), published an even more rabid diatribe than Mark Steyn’s in which he claims Prof. Mann is “linked to” the pedophile Sandusky and that he has “lawyered Up after Penn State Child Sex Link.” That’s followed by his usual libelous accusations of “scientific misconduct,” “criminal fraud,” etc.
O’Sullivan claims to be legal scholar and a lawyer with a law degree from University of Surrey and that he has “successfully litigated for 13 years in New York and Federal 2nd District courts.” He claims to be a science writer with major articles published around the world including in National Review and Forbes magazines. He also claimed to be employed as a legal consultant by Pearlman Lindholm, the law firm defending Tim Ball in the matter of Mann vs. Ball, et al. before the Supreme Court of British Columbia. None of that is true. He is an utterly shameless humbug. In 2010, he purchased his “law degree” from the online diploma mill “Hill University” that sells any degree in any field with a promised “free express delivery in just 15 days!”
But this time, Mr. O’Sullivan may have stuck his big foot so deeply into his mouth, it may emerge out his backside and kick him in the butt. For example, he says in the article published Saturday that the “case isn’t going well for Mann because he appears to be stalling about complying with a court motion to hand over his hidden ‘dirty laundry’ metadata to [the Supreme Court of British Columbia]… If Mann persists in failing to comply the court may find him in contempt and dismiss his case and award substantial damages in favor of Ball.”
Once again, this defender of “kiddie-fiddlers” is just making it up. The Supreme Court of BC has issued no such order. It will be interesting to see what Prof. Mann’s attorneys will do with this.
* The following quotes are from O’Sullivan’s self-published autobiographical novel Vanilla Girl, which he describes as a “fact-based crime story of a teacher’s struggle to control his erotic obsession with a schoolgirl”:
“I tell my online friends that the age of consent varies widely from jurisdiction to jurisdiction. The median seems to range from fourteen to sixteen years, but globally ages can range anything from nine to twenty-one. It sickens me that people, so-called civilized, intelligent people can’t see it. Their clinical, sanitized attitudes toward the appropriate age of consent have drifted upwards in modern times-Ignorant people rally against me-against us-us free thinkers.”
“Too many fools still believe and need to believe that children are ‘innocent’ and ‘pure’, that is, asexual, untainted by sexual thoughts, feelings or urges. But, you see, Leo, you and me know this is not true even of very young children, and it is certainly not true of children much past the age of ten or eleven.”
“By looking at the female waist to hip ratio, you know when a female is of the right age for reproduction. At that time, and if the mind is mature enough you can argue that you are dealing with a woman and not a child. If nature says she a woman then she is a woman-it’s not arbitrary like the age of consent laws that vary so wildly throughout the world from country to country, jurisdiction to jurisdiction.”
