The increasingly desperate (and ludicrous) efforts of feminists and their allies to portray J4MB, its staff and supporters, and even attendees at talks, as threatening and violent, continues, in the complete absence of any supportive evidence for the narrative. The only threats and violence we’re aware of has been directed AT J4MB, by the very people who accuse us of assaulting and threeatneing them.
The Tab, a Cambridge University student online newspaper, yesterday posted on YouTube a two-second-long video clip with the title, J4MB Alleged Assault. The clip has no audio, and comments are disabled.
Glass Blind Spot has responded with a piece (video, 12:48) which puts the two-second clip into context (most of the file consists of an audio file recorded by the man). The man had just been restrained and assaulted by a number of protesters, and was reacting understandably to the woman who had allegedly threw liquid over him – it could have been acid, for all he knew at that moment.
The man is Jon Baily, who – along with his 16-year-old son – attended the talks (Jon was unknown to us before the event). His statement to us on the post-event provocation, harassment, and assault (reported to the police, shortly afterwards) is here. An extract:
On leaving the event we followed directions from the security staff which resulted in my son and I walking past a large crowd of protesters. A male protester decided to jump around my son verbally harassing him swearing and waving both hands in my son’s face whilst making an offensive “V” symbol. I approached this protester to ask why he thought it was acceptable to harass a minor. The protester decided to harass me instead – I then decided it would be best to walk away at which point I was surrounded by a group of protesters.
Whilst I was surrounded a liquid was thrown over me. I then tried to push my way out of the crowd as I was now concerned about my safety. The protesters grabbed me from behind and I was restrained by both arms and an arm around my neck. I was kicked and punched multiple times. It was only when a passer by pulled me from the crowd that I was able to escape.
During my assault my son tried to get back to me. It was at this time that another protester challenged Matthew asking him if he was a hard man. This protester was 6’4” and well built – he pushed is forehead into my son’s face, he used his head to push Matthew back. He also used his size to intimidate Matthew.
We publicly challenge The Tab to publish the full video surrounding the incident, including the audio file.
We hope the police will conclude their investigations ASAP so that the truth can be established and any criminals brought to justice.
