On February 28, 2020 I published an article titled, “What Happened To Erik Odegaard Is A Tragedy That Is Everyone’s Fault”.
I had met Erik Odegaard and his father Mike back in 2014 in Dickinson, North Dakota. I worked with Erik and his father on many occasions in 2014, 2015, and 2016 while Erik was still in high school. Erik had a very good attitude, he worked hard, didn’t complain, was always respectful to adults, he had many friends his own age, and he was generally well liked by everyone.
After Erik graduated from high school, he enlisted in the U.S. Army, and he eventually became an Army Medic. Through some kind of program with the Army Reserves or Army National Guard, Erik was able to return to Dickinson to complete the final years of his enlistment.
I wish that Erik would not have returned to Dickinson. Any normal, working, unmarried male could have told Erik that yes, it was slightly easier to get a job in Dickinson because of circumstances such as there still being a shortage of labor after the oil boom, but the Police in Dickinson don’t allow people to go out to bars at night, and there are no women.
But Erik did return to Dickinson, where there is a shortage of women, and nothing to do. Erik, being a 19-20 year old male, he did seek out companionship, and he eventually did find it, with a girl who was still in high school.
I am so tired of trying to explain sex to the people in Dickinson. If the ratio of men to women in Dickinson is 3:1, three men to every one woman, there are going to be problems. How this type of problem is handled in the rest of the World is by houses of prostitution such as this one http://www.escortofitaly.com/Travel/Gallery . Please look at and read this Escort of Italy website to understand that this is a normal thing in the rest of the World.
It is miraculous that Dickinson doesn’t have even worse problems due to the shortage of women, but then again it does, please read this Grand Forks Herald newspaper article about men in Dickinson having sex with horses and cows https://www.grandforksherald.com/news/2187378-dickinson-officials-investigate-sexual-assault-horse . A quote from this article reads, “…an illegal act ranchers suggest happens all too often in this area, but rarely gets reported.”
Because Dickinson is cold, barren, desolate, uneducated, with nowhere to go and nothing to do, attractive women will not come here, and the attractive women who are born here try to leave as soon as they are able. Historically, this created another problem, the men who were here mated with the women who were here, and now look at what you’ve got.
In my blog post article about Erik, I tried to explain that this was bound to happen, with the shortage of women here, and the unattractiveness of the women who are here. I also tried to explain that through the entire 15,000 year recorded history of mankind, 19-20 year old males have been having sex with and marrying teen-aged girls. Why are the people in Dickinson trying to act like this is some kind of abomination, that a young man needs to be persecuted for?
But the purpose of this blog post article is to address the complaints, not re-argue the points of the article that I first wrote about Erik.
The complaints that I received about the Erik Odegaard blog post article are not what you think. Something entirely different than what you think occurred.
On April 18, 19, 20, and 21 my blog website received a total of 43,000 views, which is much greater than normal. Though there were many “shares”, “comments”, and “referrals” from Facebook, this high number of views was not likely caused by the casual or even angry discussion of my Erik Odegaard blog post article on Facebook or elsewhere.
To explain that there was something else going on to cause a high number of blog website views, take note that there were fewer than sixty actual complaint comments posted to the Erik Odegaard blog post article. This means that only 1.4 viewers per thousand actually left a complaint comment about the Erik Odegaard blog post article. This doesn’t mean that more viewers didn’t like this article, it does reflect that actual viewers were indifferent and not incensed by it.
The second thing to take note of, is that if someone were truly outraged and disgusted by the Erik Odegaard blog post article that I wrote, why would they make such a dedicated effort to get as many people as possible to visit my website?
A third thing to take note of, is that it is doubtful that just one person could have spontaneously decided to complain on April 17, and whoops, over the following four days they caused 43,000 views to my website.
In a future blog post I may discuss the main “haters” on Facebook that each hosted up to fifty “comments” and fifty “shares”, and some of the individual Facebook users, but I don’t want to lose sight of the big picture. The big picture is, that the sudden large number of views to my blog website doesn’t appear to be caused by outrage at the Erik Odegaard article, nor was it spontaneous, nor was it caused by a group of angry readers, though the whole thing was disguised as if it were outrage at the Erik Odegaard article.
Keep in mind that my Erik Odegaard blog post article had been published for almost two months with very little comment or attention prior to this sudden “outrage”.
Altogether, it looks like someone or a group decided far in advance to try to find some way to launch an attack against me in order to keep me from continuing to write. They wanted to attack me anonymously, instigate other people to do their work for them, and make it appear as though it was caused by something that I wrote.
Because of the level of planning, the implementation of “smart mob” tactics, and the outcome that was sought, there are only a few groups in North Dakota that would have this type of knowledge and experience. These are: The Democrat Party; College professors with marketing/media/political experience; The Forum Communications Company.
I didn’t explain it yet, but the outcome that was sought was not to criticize any particular article of mine, or discredit my writing, but to arouse so much hatred and anger towards me, combined with the publication of what was supposed to be my name, photograph, phone number, and street address, that the threats, harassment, altercations, and possible physical attacks would force me to stop writing.
Again, this is not something that an individual angry over a blog post article would do or even could do. An individual angry over a blog post article would not seek to or have the ability to drive 43,000 views to a website in a period of a few days, stir up as much anger as possible towards the writer, then post the writer’s name, photograph, phone number, and home address, in hopes that harassment and assaults would follow. This is something that the Democratic Party does to someone like Sheriff Joe Arpaio.
