What made Kate and Gerry McCann the object of so much anger? - The Guardian

Post  interested on Fri 10 Oct - 19:00

The article is  dated Friday 10 October 2014 15:30 BST - the writer is so ill informed she refers to the McCanns' "twin sons" - at least comments are accepted (subject to moderation of course).

Shouldn't that be "the SUBJECT" of so much anger? If Kate was the Object, then it would be she who was expressing the anger. Oh, wait.....

"Do people simply find the sheer stubborn courage of these people so unbelievable that they mistrust it, even despise it? Can the root of all this McCann hatred be people seeing two parents roaring for justice, attacking those who would deny them it, and thinking: “I couldn’t do that, no way. But I can’t accept they’re better than me because they can. I prefer to believe they’re worse.”

Wow, this woman is completely and utterly clueless! Did she even bother to interview a single person who does not believe the McCann fairy-story?

How does she come up with these ridiculous questions? I have never, ever thought of the McCanns as courageous, in fact, quite the opposite. I have found them to be complete cowards, running away from Portugal the day after they were made arquidos, Kate refusing to answer the 48 questions, not insisting that their friends take part in the reconstruction, etc....

And why does she assume that anyone hates the McCanns? I don't think Brenda ever used the word hate, and I don't think that most who question their version of events feel any personal hate toward the pair. They may hate how the McCanns chose to neglect their 3 young children so they could go out night after night with friends, they may hate how the McCanns ignored police advice, they may hate how Kate refused to cooperate with the questioning knowing that it would hinder the investigation, but people don't hate the McCanns.

This author is just another name caller. Instead of calling those who question the McCanns "trolls," she is going for the more offensive descriptor "haters."

Too bad this woman had to resort to name calling, which we all know is a childish defense mechanism for those who don't have the facts or evidence on their side.

The McCanns say their twin sons are old enough now ......

It’s been more than seven years since Kate and Gerry McCann informed the British media that their four-year-old, Madeleine, had gone missing ......

***SIGH***

How are we to take any of this seriously when they cannot even get the basic facts right?

Just another badly-researched piece by yet another female columnist with an axe to grind.
They all come off the same conveyor belt. They all p*** in the same pot.
There'll be another bunch along in a minute ...

The Stepford Hacks.

NEXT!!!

A lot of "anti" comments today on the comment section of the Guardian article, some probably erased but the majority printed.

"What irks a lot of people is that we have articles like this one crammed down our throats on a regular basis telling us what wonderful, brave, resilient, courageous parents the McCanns are and that they deserve our total and undivided admiration. If you don't admire them you are vile, nasty, without empathy, etc."

My dad and his friend went fishing in a pond at the back of the local Beet Sugar Factory. He caught, and photographed, and weighed a simply enormous fish: a mirror carp. He put it straight back in the pond. His friend, who worked in the advertising dept of the local newspaper wrote a short report about it, which appeared under their 'star reporter's' byline. Only one fact was correct: my fathers name, as the catcher of the fish. Where it was caught, who was with him, even the type of tackle used, the fishes weight, and its species, were ALL INCORRECT. My dad said: 'Let that be a lesson to you not to accept at face value what you read in the papers!'

I read that Guardian newspaper article myself this morning at breakfast time. Not only were there incorrect facts, but it was so shallow and superficial that it wasn't worth the effort of my reading it. The gist was that the McCanns attracted 'so much anger'... Why? wondered the writer (I suppose it makes a change from saying they attract 'hate') She decided that it was because they were 'strong' and did not buckle under to despair but kept going etc etc ... and that was it I guess...

I don't remember anything about their daughter in it... except that they had lost her...

How about...

They neglected their children
Their daughter went missing under mysterious circumstances
They didn’t search for their daughter
They lied about the shutters being jemmied
They kept changing their stories
They lied about an abduction
On their missing daughter’s 4th birthday, they were photographed coming out of a church smiling happily
They refused to do a reconstruction which would have helped in the search for their daughter
Kate McCann refused to answer 47 questions knowing it would impede the search for her daughter
They hired top lawyers and sued anyone who did not agree with their abduction story
They hired a spokesperson because they feared reporters would trick them into incriminating themselves.
They promised to explain why they believed their daughter was abducted as soon as their Arguido status was lifted… It was lifted, and they have still not explained.
They used the money raised by the public to help in the search for their daughter for mortgage payments.
They…
Oh, hell! The list is endless, but I think you’ll get the gist, Ms Orr…
