Truth Rules

A blog for fans of Clay Aiken. It may take a while but in the end, truth will win out over lies. Keep it clean, no threats ... and if I don't like what you say I own the delete key.

Irony

As a group, fans of Clay Aiken have been accused of being obsessed with him. It's been said we devote all our time, energy and money supporting and defending him to the determent of our jobs, families and real life. We've been called names to vile for me to repeat here. For the past three years we have been disparaged, belittled and denigrated.

So where is the irony you ask.

The irony lies with those doing the attacking. As an example, one blogger has spent the past five months writing two, three, sometimes four blogs a day doing nothing but defaming us and the guy we support. To me, that smacks of obsession - albeit the negative side of obsession. He scours the Internet day after day for information and photographs of fans. He is not alone. He has been joined by other obsessed haters who have been only too happy to help with the attacks.

The best part of this? They don't see the irony. They don't see their own obsession.

In the words of H. W. Fowler: "Irony is a form of utterance that postulates a double audience, consisting of one party that hearing shall hear and shall not understand, and another party that, when more is meant than meets the ear, is aware, both of that “more” and of the outsider’s incomprehension. "

I have always enjoyed your blogs. I didn't know if them until I found the FOC blog.. but now, I think you're great :) It's not like JP's blog, where people go and just ridicule each other..

Thank you. I wanted a place to tell the other side of the story without all the vile name calling and nasty comments.

As usual, Truth, you have put into words what we all think and feel. I bow to you and your eloquence!

Great blog TR. I'd list all the things I do in RL everyday, but why? It's certainly not sitting behind a computer all day. The difference between these rotting evil souls vs my life is, I have a family. They are happy, well adjusted, educated and loved. Do they? I think not. Our Circle of Life is thriving each and every year.

I have to laugh about that money thing too. We eat just fine every day. We live in a nice home, that was built to raise our family and to spend the rest of our life together.

Yeah, and I do love and respect that cute Clay Aiken guy too. He is amazing. So PFFFFTTT on those sick, nasty people. The truth will win, it always does and it's not what PP has been spewing for months, with his sick hearted followers.

Pretty much, I don't think any of these black-hearted nutjobs, know REAL happiness, love and moral values. If they did none of this past 3 years would have ever happened. They don't understand trust. They only see ugly when they look in that bathroom mirror, every single day of their lives. Suck a waste of life and life is so very short to hate that much.

So now I'm off to prepare dinner for my beautiful family.

Hmmmm, Truth, I had to go back and read your blog 'cause I thought I missed the part where you named names.

You have a mighty paranoid reader out there.

Thanks again for taking the hits.

Do you have a problem with women named Jean?

I think Marlyn Monroe was named Jean. It's a nice sounding name, don't you think?

Oh Please! Don't try to tell me he has a message behind the curtain where he's taking credit for FOC closing the blog.

He really does forget that people have careers that might need some attention and the blog had served its purpose.

You're Jean? I thought I was Jean! *stomps foot* At least I was a couple of weeks ago. Well, darn! How did I lose Jean? Oh wait, maybe that was before I was Adam...or was that after I was Adam...no...that was when I was still a Carol, or was that ForClayOnly...no, I'm wrong. It was Claytango or maybe Polly! Shoot! Just too many names to hang onto. I can't remember.

I took a scroll down memory lane today with Insane Bastard. Those posts took on an entirely different meaning after all we've been through. I miss him.

The following was posted on the equalizer blog last night.

Well, well, well. I got an email during the evening stating that my little friend was over here spilling his lies now. This little famewhore really likes to see his name in print it seems. It also seems that the TRUTH I wrote about him the other day really hit a nerve.

I was even sent his post where he threatens everyone and anyone about spreading lies about him. Oh please Johnny. Haven't you learned yet? You've been pulling these schemes since the late '90's. Aren't you tired yet?

I didn't realize just how much time he spends cruising the internet looking for people to help him in his little war. Sad really, but at least he feels safter about hiding behind his computer. Back 10 years ago, he didn't have that safety net. THAT is where he his mistakes started. He crossed the wrong people that weren't too happy about it.

Then he met ME. You haven't been off my radar too often Johnny. You don't add up to much, and you could have had so much potential, but you always fell back on your "Poor Gay Being Mistreated Routine". It's getting OLD there BUDDY.

So now who do you blame for all your problems? Clay Aiken's fans? That is classic. You are really trying to make the big leagues now huh? You pick the guy with the biggest fanbase to get your attention. But YOU should have done your homework on them BUDDY. The majority of them are not at all as you envision them to be. NOT BY A LONG SHOT. This group is made up of some very, very, savvy, intelligent women (and men) who don't care about your idle threats, nor your game playing. They have endless amounts of resources and the smarts to use them. A few of them have even offered their resources to me in your latest scheme, and along with what I already knew, I took them up on their offer to see what could be found. I must say, these fans are GOOD!! Damn, they should all quit their day jobs (yes, Johnny they do have jobs, great ones as a matter of fact) and become detectives. You call them CSI? They would put the real CSI to shame.

THAT is when I was able to find and CONFIRM the information that was posted on Perez Hilton's site the other day. I even had the opportunity to find out some real truths about you and what happened with Michael Lucas. THAT is what humiliated you Johnny. It must have been even more humiliating to go to your own DVD release party in NYC and have nobody there for you (although you have said differently). Please don't deny that Johnny. I got that straight from the "directors" mouth.

Well I guess I will wait for another email to let me know where you are running your mouth off next time. It's all so sad Johnny. Don't you realize that if you told the TRUTH once in your life, how much better you would feel?

You were a big man doing your early interviews, when you had Lucas holding your hand, but since that partnership was DROPPED, you have nobody to accompany you in order help you out. So you have to use "phone interviews" where it's safer to continue to READ THE SCRIPT. Sad, sad pathetic man.

Give my best to Sabby. It's been a LONG time since I've seen her.

Personally, I'm quite tired of the name John. And we've done a disservice to the name Buddy. I had a dog named Buddy once and he was a great dog. I think we should start calling him Jean. It fits well.

Of course he thinks everyone is the omnipotent Claytango. Apparently she is the only Claymate with a brain and the rest of us are just lumps.

Know your enemy, Paulus. It ain't Claytango.
