The Crimson Joins Harvard in Filing "Motion to Dismiss"

 

Earlier this month, I posted about how Harvard University basically wants to shrug off Eric Clopper's lawsuit for defamation by filing a "motion to dismiss."

And now, it appears the university's publication, The Crimson, which has also been implicated in the lawsuit, has responded in turn with its own "motion to dismiss."

There is no doubt that a third "motion to dismiss" by the third party implicated in this lawsuit, Baystate Sound, is to be expected.

I'm just going to quickly comment on how bold-faced these actions are before letting you read for yourself what Eric Clopper has said in his mailing list below.

How brazen it is of Harvard and their publication, and Baystate Sound to collude in the deliberate defamation of Eric Clopper to then attempt to brush it off.

Harvard University, The Crimson and Baystate Sound colluded in the defamation of Eric Clopper and the violation of his constitutional rights, not to mention the University's own stated conviction to Freedom of Speech and the pursuit of truth.

 

The following is a message sent out by Eric Clopper:

It's been twelve weeks since I filed my complaint against Harvard and their student newspaper The Crimson to begin my lawsuit against them for the violation for free speech, defamation, conspiracy and other claims.

The Crimson has responded my to complaint with their own 12(b)(6) motion, called a "Motion to Dismiss for Failure to State a Claim." This is the same type of motion Harvard filed a week prior to The Crimson. It is essentially their "so what?" defense.

I have updated the docket so you can read The Crimson's motion, i.e. Doc 36, available at https://www.clopper.com/docket.

As a reminder, this motion is essentially The Crimson's "So what?" defense. These motions argue (in the generic sense, not specific to my case), "Let's assume all your alleged facts are true. Even if they are true, so what? There are no legal remedies for the facts as you state them."

You can read The Crimson's "So what?" defense (DOC #36) and compare them to my Complaint (DOC #1) then form your own opinion.

Please feel free to add your thoughts and comments below the filings on my site.

 

Eric Clopper fights a three-way fight:

First and foremost, he fights to defend his reputation, since officials at Harvard, The Crimson and Baystate Sound colluded to attack his character.

Second, he fights to be heard, as the university's actions are a clear affront to his and others' Freedom of Speech, and their clear and express wish is to silence him.

And third, he fights for truth and raising awareness as to what is happening in hospitals across the United States; the gross and deliberate violation of basic human rights of healthy, non-consenting individuals in the name of pseudoscience and religion.

Harvard Responds to Eric Clopper with a "Motion to Dismiss"

In my last post related to this ongoing saga, we learned that Eric Clopper filed a lawsuit against Harvard University for enacting a smear campaign against him for show he put on at Harvard's Sanders Theatre. (Please read about this in my last post and on related posts listed at the end of this post.)

Just yesterday, Eric Clopper sent out an e-mail updating us as to the situation of the lawsuit he filed against Harvard. The e-mail reads as follows:

It's been ten weeks since I filed my complaint against Harvard et al. to begin my lawsuit against them for the violation of my right to free speech and other claims.

To extend the courtesy to defendants Harvard and The Crimson that they never extended to me during their "investigation," retaliation, and defamation campaign against me following my play, I wanted to give you the opportunity to read their latest arguments that they made and then filed with the federal court.

To this end, I have compiled ALL public court documents and uploaded them to my website at https://www.clopper.com/docket (updated periodically)

The first substantive argument Defendant Harvard has filed with the federal court is their "Motion to Dismiss for Failure to State a Claim." (DOC #30)

This motion was described to me in law school as a "So what?" defense. These motions argue (in the generic sense, not specific to my case), "Let's assume all your alleged facts are true. Even if they are true, so what? There are no legal remedies for the facts as you state them."

You can read Harvard's "So what?" defense (DOC #30) and compare them to my Complaint (DOC #1) then form your own opinion.

Please feel free to add your thoughts and comments below the filings on my site.

More soon,

Clopper

I don't have time to comment long on these situations nowadays, but it appears Harvard is trying to get away with the defamation. In addition to denying the very thing Harvard has historically made the case for, free speech, they went on to smear and defame Eric Clopper, and now they want to fold their hands and pretend as if they shouldn't be held responsible.

It is my hope that, for the good of Freedom of Speech, for the good of university students everywhere, but most of all, for the awareness of true and factual information regarding what is quite possibly the most common elective, cosmetic procedure in the country, and for the advancement of equal rights for male infants, justice prevails.

In a way, Harvard's heinous acts can be seen as a blessing. Had Harvard merely kept quiet and let Eric's show be, he wouldn't have garnered much attention. But due to the fact that Harvard wants to play hard-ball, this is giving attention to Eric and his message, perhaps more attention than the male infant circumcision advocates at Harvard had intended.

September 2020 in a Nutshell

 

I'm going to be honest with you and say that I've been very busy. There is a whole lot that I'd like to touch on and devote due time to, but life keeps getting in the way. Every time I think "Oh! This is something I think I should blog about," life pulls me in a different direction. My job! My children. The wife... Basic human rights for boys and men is an important issue that's always at the back of my mind, but the truth is I need to take care of my responsibilities as an employee, a dad and a husband. Someday I will be able to dedicate to the issues I care about the time they deserve.

This month, I'm joust going to post the pictures I saw on Facebook and let them speak for themselves.






I've said it before, and I'll keep saying it; the risk of male infant circumcision include infection, partial or full ablation, hemorrhage and even death. Circumcision may make breastfeeding difficult. The example seen here are only what some parents dared to make public on Facebook. Circumcision botches are so common that some doctors specialize in "correcting" circumcisions.

Because male infant circumcision is an elective, cosmetic procedure, any risk above zero is unconscionable.

Are parents being made aware of these risks?

I'm going to close with this image:


It's bears noting that this last mishap happened in Israel. Jewish advocates of male infant circumcision love to say that when a mohel performs a circumcision, there is never any risk, because a mohel does this for a living, he and the procedure are mandated and protected by "god," et cetera, et cetera.

Male infant circumcision has needless risks, regardless of who performs it and why, period.

I have taken the liberty of posting a link to the article described in the picture above, here.

Must-See Video on YouTube Regarding Normalization


What *is* "normal?"

And does something being "normal" make it "right?"

I ran across this video on YouTube that addresses precisely these questions, and OMG, it is so close to hitting the nail on the head on circumcision and its entrenchment in American (and really any other circumcising) culture.

The video speaks in general terms, but it is THIS CLOSE, THIS CLOSE, to mentioning circumcision, but it doesn't.

This is why I think this is an excellent, thought-provoking video that needs to be shared in any space where male infant circumcision is being discussed.

The video is by one Teal Swan, and it's about how horrific things can be normalized.

I will embed the video, as well as post a link to what is almost a near perfect transcription of it below.

Check out this excerpt from it:

 "If somebody takes a knife and cuts you open, it doesn't matter if that's something that fourteen people experience, or one person experiences, you've still got a wound and you're still bleeding. Just because something is normal does not make it right or good.  And just because something was or is the norm, does not mean the negative impact of it somehow doesn't exist."

OMFG, HOW many people need to hear this.

Readers, share this video, and use it as a tool when talking about circumcision and how "normal" it is.

AFRICA: Two Boys Die Post-Circumcision Despite Thoughts and Prayers

Mutua Kuthuka, father of two boys who died post-circumcision

I'm not going to say much in this one. All I'm going to do is repost this article about two boys who died last week after botched traditional circumcisions in Africa.

All I want to say is, those who say "you can't compare male and female circumcision" are either ignorant or pretend to be, and they need to shut up and stop spreading deliberate and demonstrable lies.

Male and female circumcision aren't "similar"; they're identical.

One and the same.

They BOTH need to stop, and they need to stop now.

I will copy/paste the article and the link below.


On Wednesday morning last week, 12 boys between the ages of five and eight assembled at a homestead in Lundi village in Mwingi East, Kitui County, ready to undergo circumcision.
 
The boys, all under the grip of fear, were to be circumcised using a razor blade by a 70-year-old woman. The woman is said to be an experienced traditional circumciser and is revered among members of the Kavonokya sect. 

The sect, which has its base in parts of Mwingi and Kitui South, is notorious for disregarding conventional medicine. Its members do not visit hospitals. Whenever one of them falls sick, the members congregate in their secretive conclaves for prayers. At times the prayers are endless. Many members have died as a result. 
 
In the event of death, they hurriedly and secretly bury the dead and later dismiss it as an unavoidable will of God.

Armed with nothing more than razor blades and egged on by the fathers of the boys who were pinning the young ones down, the circumciser moved from one boy to another, casually cutting off the foreskin.
 
After the cut, the boys would be tossed onto a waiting party that would bandage their private parts with pieces of clothes to stop the bleeding.
 
Unlike in hospitals, this callous ritual had no drugs to lessen the pain.
 
And then something tragic happened. Two of the boys developed excessive bleeding after being cut. They were immediately carted away and taken to a secret house where sect members began their ritual prayers.


The sect members continued praying, jumping up and down and clutching firmly onto bibles, as the boys’ lives slowly ebbed away.
 
From Wednesday to Friday, the two boys aged five and seven lay on a bed, and bled endlessly. Late on Friday, with no other intervention except for the prayers characterised by intense beating of drums, singing and violent stomping of feet, the condition of the two siblings deteriorated. They died, one after the other.
 
“Ijumaa ndio walilemewa zaidi,” their father, Mutua Kithuka said, revealing that the bleeding never stopped.
 
“The younger one died at 6pm and the other one around 10pm. They would vomit every time they were given something to eat,” said an emotionless Kithuka, a staunch Kavonokya adherent who describes himself as the paragon of faith and who says going to hospital is out of question for his family.
 
Falls sick
“It is true we did not take them to hospital because I am saved and according to the scriptures, we are not allowed to go to hospital. If one falls sick, you invite the church elders to pray and the sick is healed by faith. God gives and God takes away, it is His will,” Kithuka said.
 
He said his sons had never stepped foot in hospital since they were born but were in ‘perfect’ health. 




Mwingi East police boss Joseph Yakan confirmed Kithuka was arrested yesterday while the traditional circumciser was arrested on Friday. They are being held at Ukasi Police Station and will be arraigned today.
 
Mui chief Paul Musyimi said he learnt of the matter after the boys had already died. “We are warning the sect members not to circumcise their sons at home. Stern action will be taken against those who go against this directive,” Musyimi said.
 
The two bodies have been preserved at Mwingi Level IV Hospital mortuary.

FACEBOOK: Another Hemorrhaging Baby Post-Circumcision


So what's it going to take?

I seriously hate writing these kinds of blog posts where I have to announce, yet again, another circumcision mishap that didn't make the news. Charlatan doctors that continue to reap profit from male infant genital mutilation will continue to say circumcision is "harmless" because "research" will continue saying it is, because doctors and hospitals aren't required to report such mishaps, so they won't make the statistics used to write these "studies."

What is it going to take for people to see male infant circumcision for the needless genital mutilation that it is and demand this practice stop?

Scrolling down my Facebook news feed, I see this:







This was posted on August 13th, so I'm seeing this late. That was over 10 days ago. There hasn't been an update since.

Did this child die?

We won't know.

Parents were probably advised not to post the rest of this story on Facebook.

How many times do I have to say it?

The risks of male infant circumcision include infection, partial or full ablation, hemorrhage or even death.

Without medical or clinical indication, doctors have no business performing surgery on a healthy newborn, let alone be offering parents any kind of "choice."

Under any other circumstance, reaping profit from non-medical surgery on healthy, non-consenting individuals constitutes medical fraud.

Given that male infant circumcision is elective cosmetic surgery, any risk above 0 is unconscionable.

What is it going to take until this practice is banned and doctors that continue to do this be tried as the mutilators they are?

Unless there is a compelling medical reason, male infant circumcision is genital mutilation.

Those who continue to do this are charlatans, and those doctors whose infant patients died as a direct result of this needless mutilation are guilty of manslaughter.

What is it going to take?

How many more ruined lives and murder victims?

This needs to end NOW.

Clinical Trial: Music as Analgesia for Male Infant Circumcision


I'm not going to say much about this; the problem should be immediately obvious.

Apparently there is a clinical trial to see how much or whether or not music eases the pain of male infant circumcision.

Is nobody going to talk about the ethics of an experiment to measure the effect of music on the pain of an elective cosmetic surgery on healthy, non-consenting infants?

Where is the human rights abuse outcry?

I mean, what would be the reaction of human rights groups if the subjects of the experiment were female?

What would people think of a "clinical trial" to measure the effects of this or that administered on a crying baby girl as she was being circumcised?

And this wouldn't be the first experiment of its kind.

I had already written about a similar "trial" to measure what male infant circumcision device "hurts less."

These "trials" miss the point.

They're ethically bankrupt.

How long before they're seen as the human experiments they are?

This is absolutely despicable.

The experimenting on male infant children needs to stop.

Human Rights Activist Eric Clopper Files Lawsuit Vs. Harvard


I'm a little late in the game when it comes to reporting this, but as they say, "Better late than never."

Your blogger is busy with life and he somehow wishes he could be both an intactivist and supporting himself financially... Oh well... The best I can do is support other more important, more prominent intactivists...

On May 1st, 2018, Eric Clopper performed a play called Sex and Circumcision: An American Love Story at Harvard University's Sanders Theatre, where he staged the world's ultimate take-down of male infant circumcision as both a medical and religious ritual.

For this, Clopper was immediately placed on leave pending "a full review of the May 1 performance and events leading up to it."

Harvard suspended Clopper for 2 months for a supposed "investigation," during which Harvard’s student news paper, The Crimson, published 5 libelous articles against him, and refused to publish his letter to the editor.

In addition, to having solicited claims against him and eliminated his position, Harvard colluded with the sound company that handled Clopper’s show to obtain intimate footage of his, which they then showed to senior administrators, his boss, his friends and colleagues.

In essence, Harvard University, The Crimson and Baystate Sound colluded in a smear campaign against Clopper.

But why would anyone want to do this?

The answer is clear:

Officials at Harvard and their accomplices would like to cancel Eric Clopper because his message and take-down of male infant circumcision is solid, and they have vested interest in protecting male infant circumcision and those who perpetuate it.

That is the tactic and strategy of people who have no logical leg to stand on; cancel and silence.

So solid and irrefutable is Clopper's message, that the only chance people who want to silence him have is to disenfranchise him by attacking his character and plaguing him with financial ruin and shame.

That same year, Clopper set out to play David to Harvard's Goliath, setting up a GoFundMe to cover litigation expenses.

And now, it seems, Eric Clopper is finally armed and ready to fight.

On July 27, 2020 this year, he posted the following video on YouTube:




He says:
“My attorneys and I have officially filed suit against Harvard and other parties for the violation of my Constitutional Rights and other claims in the Federal District Court of Massachusetts.
If you'd like to support my and my attorney's legal efforts, and to get a copy of the pleadings, you can go to my site, subscribe for updates if you'd like, donate to our effort if you can, and there are various ways to get in touch with me if you'd like : https://www.clopper.com/harvard-lawsuit

I am going to be relatively quiet in the immediate future, but in the coming months and year, I will have many updates on this and other issues.

Clopper fights a three-way fight:

First and foremost, he fights to defend his reputation, since officials at Harvard, The Crimson and Baystate Sound colluded to attack his character.

Second, he fights to be heard, as the university's actions are a clear affront to his and others' Freedom of Speech, and their clear and express wish is to silence him.

And third, he fights for truth and raising awareness as to what is happening in hospitals across the United States; the gross and deliberate violation of basic human rights of healthy, non-consenting individuals in the name of pseudoscience and religion.

FACEBOOK: Another Circumcision Death Surfaces


I was scrolling down my Facebook news feed and this caught my eye. I'm not going to comment much on this one... I'm just going to copy-paste what the mother wrote as it speaks enough for itself.

"He was born completely healthy. He died because they were negligent and didn’t clean their circumcision tools and because of that my son contracted herpes and suffered everyday of his life in pain.

"When we came home from the hospital, I told my husband and his pediatrician there was something wrong with my baby. As soon as he came back from having the procedure, he started acting differently. He cried constantly. You see he was in pain. He would clench up, he refused food. I kept telling the dr and my husband there is something wrong with my baby and I think he is going to die.

"He stopped breathing which landed us into the hospital with our 16-day-old baby. It took a week to figure out he had hsv2, which is herpes. The herpes caused him to get meningitis and encephalitis, which eventually ate his brain to the point his brain was liquid.

"My son had 7 spinal taps during his stay. We brought him home after 7 and half weeks in the hospital. At this point they are telling us that he is going to be completely dependent on us the rest of his life, that he suffered severe brain damage.

"We were able to bring him home but he was on iv medication for 2 weeks at home. He needed medication by iv round the clock. My son was on 12 medications. He suffered from seizures due to the meningitis.

"On August __ my son turned blue and stopped breathing again in my arms. We had been home about two weeks. We called 911. They drilled a hole into his tiny little leg on my couch in my living room to get him the iv medication.

"On August __ we had to make the decision to take him off life support. He was completely brain dead. He stopped opening his eyes, eating, crying, moving.

"My little boy was gone. My husband and I took him off life support at 1:22 pm. He died in my arms at 10:35 that night. I watched my little boy slowly stop breathing and die and that was the hardest thing I have ever gone through in my entire life, but he would never be off a ventilator nor would ever open his eyes or speak or anything.

"My daughter was just over the moon happy with having a baby brother. She loved him so much. We had to send her to stay with my parents while our son was fighting for his life so in a sense she lost her brother and her parents for a while.

"She was devastated. She has said so many times she wants to die and go to heaven to be with her brother. She is only 6 years old. We kept her involved as much as we could but this has affected her in so many different ways. We went from explaining to her that he was going to be different and special and need lots of care to I’m sorry but your brother is going to die. She got very mad and hated the world for taking her baby brother.

"The hospital blamed me, saying I gave him herpes which we were able to prove that I don’t have it, never have, nor have I ever been exposed. Our lawyer has been able to pin the time frame along with drs to prove that Oliver caught the infection during the circumcision.

"We didn’t know how it was done until after my son died and I watched a video and I almost lost my mind to see how cruel it is.

"I would have fought with my life to stop the circumcision but they said it was safe and normal.

"We both lived in the hospital with our son. We never left him we were just praying to God that our little boy would live. This child our son is my husband's only biological child . I remember us both blaming ourselves for what happened to our little boy. There was a lot of resentment, a lot of anger towards the hospital where he was birthed. This mistake cost our son his life and tore our family up."






Cases of herpes being spread from mohels and rabbis to male infants have made headlines before, but this is the first time your blogger had ever heard of a child contracting herpes at a hospital from a secular, non-religious circumcision.

The risks of male infant circumcision include, but aren't limited to, infection, partial or full ablation, hemorrhage and even death.

Because male infant circumcision is elective, non-medical surgery, any risk above zero is unconscionable.

Death is a risk of male infant circumcision.

Are parents being informed of this risk?

This is the question the AAP must address in their next policy statement on male infant circumcision.

It sounds like this mother didn't make a fully informed decision.

Reaping profit from performing elective, non-medical surgery on healthy, non-consenting individuals constitutes medical fraud.

Without medical or clinical indication, doctors have no business performing elective, non-medical surgery on healthy, non-consenting individuals, let alone be eliciting any kind of "choice" from the child's parents.







Deaths due to circumcision surface on Facebook all the time, and yet they barely get any coverage in the news.

I could only imagine that reporters would find more, would that they bothered to look.

The problem is that male infant circumcision has become so entrenched in American society that people have a tendency to look the other way whenever deaths like these happen, or to find some sort of excuse for it.

How many deaths will this take?

How many parents would refuse this needless surgery on their healthy children if they knew death was a risk?

This dirty little secret can't remain hidden forever.

Intactivist Attorney Found Shot Dead at his California Home


 Marc Angelucci, Attorney, Intactivist

Coronavirus keeps me busy. I (very fortunately, and very gratefully) have a job to work, and I've got kids with pent-up energy from not being able to go out to wrestle with and take care of at home.

I barely have enough time to check out social media, let alone engage in intactivism.

This is why I'm only barely finding out about this man's murder.

I just logged into my Facebook account to find out intactivist attorney Marc Angelucci was found shot to death at his California home in San Bernardino, on Saturday, July 11th at around 4pm.

According to a news report, when Twin Peaks deputies arrived on the scene, Angelucci was found non-responsive and suffering from gunshot wounds. He was pronounced dead at the scene, and the motive for the shooting is unknown.
Who is to say for sure why this man got shot?

Angelucci was an outspoken intactivist attorney.

He was one of the first seven men who protested as part of a group known as the "Bloodstained Men," a group of intactivist who protest male infant circumcision wearing white clothing with the crotch area stained red to represent blood.

Angelucci was also the vice president and a board member of the National Coalition for Men. His death is a terrible loss for the legal community and for the intactivist and human rights community.
Perhaps his activism had something to do with his murder?
I do hope his murderers are caught, arrested and brought to justice.

His death is a terrible loss for the legal community and for the intactivist and human rights communities.

EDIT: I just saw this on Twitter:

Twitter Bans Award-Winning Circumcision Documentary Filmmaker


At the beginning of the year, I posted about how Twitter has permanently banned me.

Four days ago, I was scrolling through my Facebook news feed to discover that filmmaker Brendon Marotta, author of the award-winning circumcision documentary film American Circumcision has also been banned. He wrote about his situation in his blog.

Brendon's circumstances seem to be similar to mine; I feel as though I didn't break any rules, at least intentionally, and whenever I try to appeal to Twitter or contact someone there, all I get are automated responses.

I feel that I was censored for daring to question organizations such as the AAP, ACOG, PEPFAR, the WHO, UNAIDS, USAID, JHPIEGO, and the like regarding male infant circumcision and the mass circumcision campaign happening in Africa under the purported pretext of "HIV prevention."

Now, there are many reasons why I dislike our president. I honestly can't believe he is in office, and would like nothing more than to see him be removed this November.

However, even a broken clock is right twice a day, and I find I actually agree with him taking on social media platforms on censorship, threatening to remove their protections if they keep censoring people.

Censoring dissent for daring to question and criticize authority and/or otherwise sacred cows is what China and North Korea do. I feel our country may be headed in that direction, and I commend the president for bringing attention to this and trying to do something about it.

Male circumcision being a case in point, it is completely possible for what are supposed to be respected medical authorities to disseminate misinformation that results in needless harm and the violation of the most basic of human rights.

That platforms like Twitter and Facebook are taking the liberty to censor any individual or organization that dares question authoritative medical organizations such as the WHO and AAP, and demonstrably prove that they are disseminating misinformation ought to concern intactivists.

Social media platforms are mistaken if they think they've won, though.



"Shit floats," as the saying goes.

Circumcision advocates may have won a temporary battle in silencing us by banning us from social media platforms, but the truth can't be hidden forever.

The truth is like the sun and the moon; they can't be hidden forever and eventually make their existence known, plain and obvious for all to see.

Being banned from Twitter means more people will want to see Brendon's film.

More people are going to find out about this, America's little secret, thus raising awareness of what goes on 3,000 times a day in this country.

If anything this actually helps our cause.

It's truly sad to watch those fond of upholding lies as they are eaten alive by the mouth of the truth.

While currently lies prevail regarding male circumcision, sooner or later, the truth must be known.

And then, like the sun and the moon, it will be plain, obvious and undeniable.
