Are Megan Stammers and Jeremy Forrest the equivalent of English White Slaves, Owned by the States? It seems that they are, and the English have yet to afford any emancipation to their sexual prisoners….
Today, June 19, is a day celebrated all over the United States as the day when the Slaves heard they had been freed. The origin of this day is in my natal state of Texas, where, in my grandfather’s home town of Galveston, on June 19, 1865, the Union Navy arrived and the last major port city flying the flag of the Confederate States of America surrendered without firing another shot. The Yankee Occupying Officers summoned all the blacks on Galveston Island to appear in front of the beautiful Ashton Villa (still standing to this day at 24th & Broadway, nine blocks from where my grandfather, himself the grandson of an hereditary British Peer of the Realm was born), and General Gordon Granger read the contents of “General Order No. 3”:
The people of Texas are informed that, in accordance with a proclamation from the Executive of the United States, all slaves are free. This involves an absolute equality of personal rights and rights of property between former masters and slaves, and the connection heretofore existing between them becomes that between employer and hired labor. The freedmen are advised to remain quietly at their present homes and work for wages. They are informed that they will not be allowed to collect at military posts and that they will not be supported in idleness either there or elsewhere.
Reading the testimony below, I wonder whether it is worth it to Megan Stammers’ Mother to know what she has doe to scar her daughter’s life forever by rendering her the equivalent of a slave before emancipation. Is it worth it to the people of Great Britain, who preached the Gospel of Freedom to the whole world long before Juneteenth?
Running away is, in my opinion, a fundamental right of lovers and of children generally. It was part of the English and American Legends of the 19th century—young boys who run away to make their lives and fortunes, young girls who run away for love. THIS IS FREEDOM AND GOD DAMN THE ENGLISH POLICE FOR INTERFERING AND THE ENGLISH COURTS AND CROWN ATTORNEYS FOR PROSECUTING. GOD DAMN THEM ALL I TELL YOU!!! LONG LIVE FREEDOM FOR ALL ENGLISHMEN! These people were in love and they had the right to seek a modicum of happiness, however short-lived it might have been had they been left to themselves. In the tradition of our ancestors….. BRITONS NEVER SHALL BE SLAVES, REMEMBER THAT?
ONLY SLAVES’ MATING HABITS CAN BE CONTROLLED BY THEIR MASTERS. ONLY SLAVES CAN BE TOLD WHOM TO LOVE, WHOM TO MARRY, AND WHOM TO MATE AND WHEN. THE ABILITY OF YOUNG LOVERS TO CHOOSE EACH OTHER RATHER THAN HAVING MADE BE CHOSEN, MARRIAGES ARRANGED and MANDATED BY THEIR PARENTS WAS CONSIDERED A MAJOR SOCIAL BREAKTHROUGH IN ENGLISH HISTORY, BUT THE STATE NOW STANDS IN LOCO PARENTIS TELLING US WHOM TO LOVE AND WHOM TO SHUN. THIS IS SCANDALOUSLY WRONG AND IMMORAL. THE ABILITY TO LOVE AN APPROPRIATE MATE IS THE ESSENCE OF FREEDOM: Jeremy Forrest and Megan Stammers may not have been YOUR idea of a perfect couple. I don’t know them well enough to know whether they were my ideal: they were both good looking obviously intelligent and strong-willed, passioned White Middle Class English people—they deserved to be treated as Free White Middle Class English people, not slave—why should they have had to wait three more years for love? Or even one? TELL OLD BAILEY—LET MY PEOPLE GO!
When Israel was in Egypt’s land: Let my people go, Oppress’d so hard they could not stand, Let my People go.
Go down, Moses, Way down in Egypt’s land, Tell old Pharaoh, Let my people go.
You know: the absolute worst that anyone could possibly TRUTHFULLY and indisputably say about Megan Forrest and Jeremy Stammers is that they, as a young couple in love, “got out of hand.” Yes, a love story that got out of hand, what a concept. OH, and by the way, do you happen to know how to say, “get out of hand in Latin?” The word is a single compound formation (ex = out) + (ablative manu from manus = hand) + (capere/capio = take hold of)—put it all together and you have EX-MANU-CAPIO or in English EMANCIPATION. Treating a 15 year old girl in love like a slave is just either OPPRESSIVE or STUPID or both—”Oppressed so hard they could not stand, let my people GO.”
Jeremy Forrest trial: Schoolgirl’s mum ‘thought she was dead when she vanished with married maths teacher’
Forrest, 30, and his 15-year-old pupil fled to France after their relationship was about to be exposed in September last year
The mother of a schoolgirl who went on the run with her married maths teacher feared she was dead when the pair disappeared, a court has heard.
Jeremy Forrest, 30, and his 15-year-old pupil fled to France after their relationship was about to be exposed in September last year.
Forrest booked a cross-Channel ferry from Dover to Calais with the schoolgirl, from Bishop Bell C of E School in Eastbourne, East Sussex, before spending seven days on the run.
Scots-born Forrest, of Chislehurst Road, Petts Wood, Kent, denies child abduction.
The schoolgirl’s mother told Lewes Crown Court how police came to their house to confront her daughter over rumours that there were indecent images of Forrest on her phone.
The mother said she did not know the whereabouts of her daughter for the seven days before she was caught.
She also said that she had not given permission to Forrest to take her away and would not have done if asked.
She said: “I thought she was dead and I did ask the police that as well.”
The mother, who cannot be named for legal reasons, said that she was first warned by the school about rumours about her daughter and Forrest about two weeks after the trip to Los Angeles in February 2012.
She said she was told that “there were rumours amongst the pupils that she had got close to him but there was nothing found”.
The mother said she confronted her daughter when she returned home.
She said: “When she got back from school, she came in and I sat her down and told her the call I had.
“She broke down, completely cried, she said that it was just nasty rumours as he was the teacher that calmed her down on the plane.”
She said she did not hear anything again about Forrest until mid July.
She said she received a call from the school but did not manage to speak to the staff member.
She said that Forrest then called her and broke down in tears as he spoke of the rumours which he said were false.
She said: “He said that he wanted to nip it all in the bud before the school started again in September.
“He alluded that (my daughter) was being a bit of a pain, he said (she) kept hanging around him.
“He said he couldn’t allow this to ruin his career so I had a conversation with him, I felt I was coaching him, consoling him because he was getting quite upset on the phone.
“He was upset about it getting worse, he kept going on and on about his career.
“He didn’t want it go any further, he didn’t want it to get any worse.
“He kept on going over the same things, mainly about his career.
“I apologised for my daughter’s behaviour, I said ‘leave it with me, I will sort it, I would take full responsibility and sort it’.”
The mother said she confronted her daughter again.
She said: “I did more than talk to her, I went mad at her.
“I was mortified that my daughter could put someone in that position.
“I’m a professional person myself, I was embarrassed she had put someone in this position.
“I was horrified, ashamed and I had a go at her. Clearly I was upset and she knew I was upset.
“She said ‘It’s not true’, she was in tears, she broke down, she said ‘It’s not true, it’s not true’.
“He said the problem with the rumours was that (she) wasn’t denying them, she was allowing people to just talk.
“I asked her ‘Are you are telling me there’s nothing in this? There’s nothing in this?’, she said ‘No’ and I told her ‘You must tell people it’s not true’.”
The girl’s mother said she did not hear anything else regarding Forrest until September 19 when a police officer and a social worker arrived at her house in Eastbourne.
She said that, during the summer, she had only allowed her daughter to stay nights at a friend’s house and she had always believed she was there because she or her partner had dropped her off and picked her up.
She added that her daughter had shown her photos of things she had been doing with her friend while at her house.
The mother said the police officer told her they had received reports that there indecent images of Forrest on her daughter’s phone.
She said she was in a “panicky” state as she called her daughter to ask her to come home.
She said her daughter handed her phone to the police officer and denied the relationship rumours.
She said: “She flatly refused them – she said there was no truth in them whatsoever.
“She was angry, she was saying ‘Here’s my phone, there’s nothing on it’.”
She said her daughter behaved normally that night but unusually she got up in the night and also got up early the next morning to go to school.
She said after school that day (September 20), her daughter phoned to ask permission to stay at a friend’s house and came home to pick up an overnight bag.
She said that, as she was leaving, “she came over to me, jumping all over me.
“She was always jumping all over me but this particular time she grabbed me and said ‘I love you’.
“I said ‘You are telling me that all the time and I love you’.
“She grabbed me again and said ‘No, Mum, look me in the eye’ and said ‘I love you’.
“I said to her ‘Sweetheart, I love you too’. She gave me kisses on my face and left.”
The trial has heard that it was following this that the girl went on to travel to France with Forrest.
Earlier today, a pal of the teenager said in a video-recorded police interview shown to the court that lots of rumours went around the school about the teenager’s relationship with Forrest.
She said the girl only confirmed her relationship with the teacher to her on the day they fled to France.
She said the girl was worried about what could happen to Forrest if they were caught.
The 16-year-old said: “(The girl) was talking about what could happen to Mr Forrest, how long he could go to prison for.
“She was speaking about all the things he could go to prison for – she said sexual contact and she gave like a nod.”
The witness said she and another friend were with the girl as Forrest picked her up to take her to France.
She said the girl was calm and added: “She wasn’t under any pressure.”
She said she thought Forrest looked “ashamed”.
She added that when Forrest returned to pick up the girl’s toiletries bag, which she had forgotten, he appeared to have been crying.
She said: “He didn’t make eye contact at all – he looked like he had been crying as well.
“He said ‘Look, I’m sorry’.”
Another friend, a 16-year-old boy, said in his video interview that many of the pupils in Forrest’s class regarded him as a friend.
He said: “Quite a lot of people in my class and other people thought of him more as a friend rather than a teacher. I liked him.”
Speaking about the girl, he added: “She said she had a crush on him and stuff. I thought she thought ‘attractive’.”
He said the girl told him that she had had sex with the teacher.
He said: “I remember she said that they had had sex and I was like ‘You shouldn’t be doing that’ etc.
“She was like ‘No, everything will be fine’.”
