I started as an Internet troll mixing truth with satire. I was once hugely popular on the now defunct Myspace social network. Back then, approximately 75% of my content was satire. In those days, I was positioning myself to be a mix between Anton LaVey, Andrew Dice Clay and Rush Limbaugh. As years progressed and I got older, I became more serious about politics. I didn’t necessarily stop with the ‘trolling’, but I definitely dropped my phony stage presence that I had initially set out to create.
In this recent era of my life, I have diverted more energy into serious issues. I’ve also become a man of faith, and have since reformed my thinking in very big ways. But every now and then however, I’ll deliberately tweet something ‘fun’ that I know will garner the Left’s scorn.
A lot of newcomers to my brand aren’t aware of my trolly past. Many a leftist nincompoop will scroll through past posts and screenshot particularly ‘naughty’ things I might have said that they believe will get me in ‘trouble’.
The following is one such example of a post that the Left believes could ‘unravel’ my platform and expose me as some kind of ‘menace’ to society:
Many people have messaged me, threatening to unleash ‘dirt’ on Grant J. Kidney. I guess certain people want to stop my ‘rise’ before I have a chance.
Even though I’ve changed in very significant ways, the fact is, one cannot dig up dirt on an admitted ‘shock jock’ who began his career saying the most outrageous things one could possibly imagine. It would be like trying to get Andrew Dice Clay in trouble for statements made at the height of his stardom.
Just as a refresher, here’s Andrew Dice Clay.
WARNING: The following clip includes extremely raunchy humor and lots of strong language.
Besides drumming up old, stupid posts from my past, the Left also likes to point out the following about your’s truly…
-They say I worked at an Apple store when I did not. I worked as a senior tech advisor at Apple corporate. The confusion comes after an ex girlfriend was ‘mined’ for information about me by a left wing radical with an IQ of zero.
-They point out that I had a ‘Men in Black’ fan club when I was a kid. I’m confused how this matters? 🤔
-They point out that I possessed very different religious and political affiliations in the far past. It is worthy to note that mostly nothing from approximately 2008-2011- including my self published book, ‘The Illumination: An Anthology of Truths’- could be considered ‘serious’ insofar as content is concerned. Regarding shifting political views, it is true that I once held some liberal/socialist views. Over time, however- and after many life changing circumstances- my opinions morphed into what they are today.
I have said many ‘shocking’ and ‘deliberate’ things in the past because it’s what I enjoyed doing at the time. It’s called ‘freedom of speech’.
The truth is, if the Left is going to stop me, they’ll need to do better than rehashing old, goofy tweets, saying I worked for Apple and making fun of a childhood, Men in Black fan club. The Left will need to step up to the plate and debate me on REAL issues.
