Facebook Threatens MemoryHoleBlog Page with Shutdown
Threats of Physical Harm
In the latest episode of the Sandy Hook shooting event saga South Florida-based trial attorney Louis Leo IV is requesting that a Sandy Hook parent to file suit against him for defamation.
The challenge came as Leo found out that the party known as “Lenny Pozner” and his non-profit “HONR Network” organization alleged that Leo is “posting malicious and defamatory public statements on social media against victims of mass casualty events.”
In response Leo invited Pozner and any other Sandy Hook parent to file suit against him for defamation. “Lenny, if what you allege is true,” Leo wrote,
I respectfully challenge any such purported “victim” (including but not limited to you) to sue me for defamation. I’ll waive service of process. Just let me know when you can be available for deposition. I have many questions I’d love to ask you under oath.
Facebook has in turn given Leo “social media timeout”–a 30-day ban from posting on his own Fb page for violating Fb’s “community standards.” Perhaps uncoincidentally, Facebook moved against James Tracy with a similar penalty (below). (As of 11:00PM November 22 Leo has since had his privileges restored. MHB page, however, remains in lockdown.)
Leo is the lead attorney in the civil rights case James Tracy brought against Florida Atlantic University for his 2016 termination. The case is presently before the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals.
As the harassment against Leo ensued an unknown Facebook user also suggested to the social media outlet that Leo himself may be suicidal.
It is doubtful that any of the Sandy Hook parents will file suit against Leo, which is why they instead resort to various forms of online harassment and efforts to shut down Sandy Hook researchers and critics’ social media accounts via false allegations of harassment.
When the party going by the name Pozner sued school safety expert Wolfgang Halbig in 2016 the plaintiff suddenly withdrew the action when Halbig sought a deposition. According to attorney Alison Maynard, Pozner informed Halbig in so many words that the real reason for such suits is to drain the target of resources through abuse of the judicial process.
As Maynard, who is assisting Halbig in another lawsuit brought by Sandy Hook parents in Connecticut State Court, observes,
The pièce de résistance is when Wolf noticed Lenny for deposition. Wolf had unsuccessfully tried to confer about a date, so set it unilaterally (Doc. 58); and Lenny’s attorney moved to strike the notice of deposition and for a protective order, asking that the deponent be allowed to appear by telephone (Docs. 60, 61), and purporting to impose numerous other conditions.
On Aug. 22, 2017, the court ordered Leonard Pozner to appear in person for his deposition, and permitted it to be videotaped (Doc. 86). It granted Pozner a delay of three months based on “medical evidence” that he was unable to attend until November 15, 2017. On Nov. 13, 2017, two days before the deposition was supposed to take place Pozner dismissed the lawsuit (Doc. 92).
In 2015 “Lenny and Veronique Pozner” publicly claimed that James Tracy was harassing them, and falsely asserted they filed a police report citing Tracy. Subsequent research revealed that no police report was ever filed. Nevertheless the entities used Tracy’s request for corroboration of a bogus copyright infringement claim Pozner filed against MemoryHoleBlog as “harassment.” The corporate news media backed the lie all the way.
An unidentified party has also recently sought to get MemoryHoleBlog’s Facebook page shutdown with similar allegations of “community standards” violations.
Parties that appear to be acting concert with Pozner’s HONR organization have recently emailed bloggers intimating the threat of physical violence against them and their families.
For example, the email below was sent to Newtown Bee editors and cc’d to James Tracy, Wolfgang Halbig, Dr. Eowyn and James Fetzer. It reads:
Why would Wolfgang Halbig, Dr. Eowyn, James Tracy & James Fetzer risk a violent deadly attack against them and their family from a distraught family member taking the law into their own hands because of the meme that nobody died at the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting?
The same party sent Fellowship of the Minds editor Dr. Eowyn an even more overt threat of physical violence, which reads,
Consider yourself lucky that the attack is in cyberspace and not at your doorstep or Fetzer’s.
Indeed, the threat does not even conceal the fact that Eowyn is under an “attack … in cyberspace.”
Despite the threats of violence posed to bloggers who’ve delved beyond the Sandy Hook official narrative, major news media provide glowing coverage and support of the parties who’ve played leading roles in the event, not to mention the raft of “non-profit” organizations they head up where millions in donations have been solicited to defend and propagate the shooting’s mythic stature.
Earlier this year an unknown party left numerous reader comments at MHB threatening physical harm and suggesting Tracy commit suicide. The comments share the same email and/or internet protocol code, and two are even left on
Of course, such threats are the work of pros and have “lettered agency” written all over them. This is because they employ a psychological tactic used by intel agencies for years to diminish the target’s self esteem, prompting him or her to partake in self harm.
The most famous instance of this technique involved FBI agents sending correspondence to Martin Luther King Jr., where they repeatedly called him a “fraud” and encouraged the 1960s civil rights leader to kill himself.
Perhaps ironically, “sending threats through interstate communications” is exactly what Florida resident Lucy Richards was prosecuted for in 2017 when according to US officials she made threatening telephone calls to Pozner.
In the event the Sandy Hook players engage in litigation with Leo we would certainly want a front row seat. This is one attorney who is truly interested in truth and justice, unlike so many of his professional peers.
