Only that was me in 1987 when I went onto the Sally show the first time in my campaign to raise awareness about sex trafficking in America. I've got clips about this up at www.hightechmadam.com and you can even see the show at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LWvD_tmEHPE A tape I'm lucky to have since my original was destroyed, the original at the ABC studio was destroyed in a "fire", and then I spent months negotiating with NBC to get this copy! Seems NBC now owns almost all of my original TV appearances actually.
But then the American public lashes back and says "it's not true". More important, the flame retardant industry lashes back and says he's "hallucinating". So he then goes out and finds other fireman who have gotten cancer related to not just their job, but behind breathing in these toxic fumes caused by the flame retardants. Now the flame retardant people think "oh well no one is going to listen to this guy" because "they didn't listen to the last guy who tried to raise awareness" so they kind of ignore him for a long time.
So then 13 years later, this fireman gets federal recognition for this in fact being "real". For the first time, doctors can now start treating cancer related to flame retardants and billing insurance. They couldn't bill insurance for this before because supposedly it wasn't "real".
Okay now the flame retardant people realize there's a problem - a big problem. So they have got to do something about this. Which your film outlined what they did - a huge campaign about how their chemicals "save children". Of course making it look like anyone opposing this must "support children being burned alive". My what an awful person this guy must be to want children to die from a preventable fire right?
Meaning now you've got to find firemen who will say the source of their cancer is smoking. What do you do? Well this little fireman has already got this on the books. Everyone knows him. Everyone knows his face. He started all of this. He's the "expert in the field" people clearly believe. So if you can get that fireman to stand up in the press and say his cancer was caused by smoking - then you're off the hook right?
So Melissa then took the reporters out into the hallway and spoke to them "one on one" saying that this was in fact my view. Which then led to the release of those articles calling to "outlaw the industry" which was not my words. Well needless to say, in these terms the "tobacco" industry wouldn't be too happy about me blaming them now would they? So in fact, I go home from this press conference which has just blamed them for our cancer to find my car has been trashed by men who are owners of tobacco companies in that sense. Is my beef with them? No.
But now they got a beef with me.
I even get one of the owners of the largest tobacco companies there is in the world send an employee over to me right after this conference to report that I am now "blacklisted" in any media he owns or controls or buys any advertising with. That man is Sheldon Adelson who not only is pushing for the legalization of prostitution, but further hates unions (which I support in the sex industry) and also happens to fund a HUGE chunk of the drug treatment world. Which would be the equivalent of the cancer medical community who treat the firemen's cancer. Meaning that in one fell swoop - all of the support I'd received up to that point from the drug treatment world was also yanked and turned against me by what Melissa Farley did to me that day. Which again would be like if in my analogy if all of the cancer treatment community were turned against me while I'm still having firemen with cancer calling me up for help and support.
But you can hire "fakes". Welcome to Chong Kim, Stella Marr and then Samoly Mam. http://www.cnn.com/2014/05/30/world/asia/cambodia-sex-slavery-foundation-hero-resign/
One by one the "fakes" are being exposed. What do you do? How are you going to continue to get the public, and the law makers, to believe the firemen are getting cancer from smoking and not from the chemicals?
Well the next step is to get someone from the tobacco industry to step up and say they are not only doing it - but they further are aware they're doing it. You need to find yourself some person in the tobacco industry to step up and claim responsibility. Now here I can't point any fingers openly in the media without risking a defamation suit yet - but I can point out one person making the equivalent kinds of statements, from an equivalent kind of viewpoint, who I've traced money being given to her by the flame retardant chemical companies. So you have to ask yourself why would this person in the tobacco industry take money from the flame retardant chemical company when they're out protesting the chemical retardant people at the same time?
Please call me any day you can at (702) 488-1127. I would appreciate just someone to discuss over strategy with. Thanks again for what you did. I at least now have a way to explain what I'm seeing happen in our movement to try and address sex trafficking in America.
