These emails from Dr Martin Young are very, very disturbing.
Although directed at me, they affect you and the health of Knysna too. You’ll understand when you read them, hopefully questioning what type of people you want to have as your leaders.
Dr Martin Young has applied to become a Democratic Alliance (DA) candidate for the forthcoming local elections.
Considering my activism and attempts to bring the DA to justice for alleged corruption and maladministration, I consider it no coincidence that he’s become another of my cyberstalkers – he had nothing to say about me until his announced ambition for politics, now he attacks me daily.
I do not use the word “cyberstalking” lightly. I have overwhelming evidence of his persistent aggression.
He initially did so from his personal page and Knysna Knews but soon used his medical page – I consider that unethical.
He’s now supporting (Not) Protecting Brand Knysna on Facebook and (Not Me) AngryMikeH on Twitter.
There are others involved. They’re small but they scream a lot. Two regulars are a married couple in the DA. Others include Baden Hall, Mark Beard and Angie Manser. Is it a coincidence that 3 copywriters/marketers are involved too, those being This Tourism Week’s Martin Hatchuel and the Jam Factory’s Ashley Barnes and Gustav Malan?
Don’t believe my poor opinion of them. Find out for yourself. Visit those Facebook pages and judge if it is me or them hurting Knysna.
Rather than detail them all now, losing focus on Dr Martin Young’s outrageous actions, let me just mention Mark Allan, the man I have a protection order against as a result of his cyberstalking. He negatively associates me with young children and issues lie after repetitive lie e.g. I was fired from Knysna Tourism and work for the ANC to destabilise Knysna.
That Dr Martin Young, a man of political ambitions, is aware of that protection order, these issues and more, yet working with Mark Allan (who now lives in Thailand) is further disturbia and a lack of moral leadership.
It’s pointless me contacting Jaco Londt, the DA’s Eastern Region manager, who hasn’t responded to other complaints of cyberstalking linked to DA politicians. In this case, Londt, if he chose to protect the public first instead of the DA, could still say, “but he isn’t one of ours yet” …
…but Londt wouldn’t be able to deny the DA’s friendliness to Young.
When looking at Facebook friendship profiles, whose ranking is mostly based on interaction, Young is very high on those of Londt as well as DA MEC Alan Winde and DA Knysna Councillor Peter Myers. Young’s own friend list shows more, conspicuously including those who are actively working to discredit me online. Londt may not answer me but was strangely prepared to respond to a tweet from the fake profile pretending to be me, AngryMikeH. Londt continues to not represent Knysna as he is supposed to. Instead of serving the public, he appears to be just another politician earning a salary whilst protecting the DA’s image and their plans for Knysna which, like elsewhere in the Western Cape, seem to favour property developers over us.
Whether it’s condoned or not, the fact is that the DA and the Knysna Municipality initially benefited from these attempts to discredit me and cloud issues in Knysna.
I say “initially” because it’s stepped far over the line into undisguised hate and blatant propaganda. I considered it a step further into a personality disorder. I am not a doctor so don’t take my word for it. Please judge their actions and words for yourself. Oddly, they benefit my truth that Knysna politics is a playground of self-interest and disguised interests.
Those sitting on the fence have now been given a front-row seat into how nasty our local politics really is, the DA they don’t want to know, the monster I’ve faced for almost 5 years now.
There will be much more to say but I will leave most of that for inevitable court. For now, I ask that you read Dr Martin Young’s horrible emails that stink of arrogance whilst horribly claiming to have me jailed.
Young has been visiting local businesses, even those he isn’t a patron of, to ask them to ban me. What kind of wannabe leader would put businesses in that awkward position?
He’s also asking people to donate money to him and his not-so-secret crew of agitators so that they can attempt to have me jailed. What that really translates into is him trying to raise money for a well-known, high-ranking DA politician who wants to take me to High Court. It’s consequently no surprise that that politician’s spouse is working with him. Not only are they wrong but they’re highly paid people who aren’t prepared to use their own money.
Opposingly, I have paid a personal price for trying to keep the truth in the light.
Keep in mind that the DA has yet to answer questions. Their presentation to Parliament was ridiculously EMPTY OF VALID FACTS. The attack against me, by them and their associates, has yet to stop. The Knysna-Plett Herald is again proclaiming all is well, which must be considered to be on behalf of the Knysna Municipality as the newspaper, again, failed to interview me about my petition.
Is Young part of a conspiracy against me? Ask yourself that question when you read this…
