Et tu, Rolf? Open Letter to Rolf Harris
My hurt is nothing to your victims hurt. It is a trifle in comparison. But my hurt is felt by tens if not hundreds of thousands of people across the country. It is a sense of betrayal.
Rolf, I grew up to you singing Two little Boys, Tie me kangaroo Down Sport, Court of King Caractacus, Seamus of Sean the Lepracaun, Jake the Peg and many others. I loved singing along with the records. I played them over and over again, with childish glee, prancing about the living room. I grew up watching you on Childrens TV programmes, making your big wall drawings that we could only make out what they were in the last few seconds. I grew up watching and listening to you playing the didgeridoo and wobbleboard.
You were a funny, talented, and a fondly regarded part of my childhood. In my adult years I have seen you on animal programmes. So Rolf, you project yourself in the media as a multi-talented slightly offbeat musician and artist, child friendly and an animal lover. What could be better – children and animals. You were a national institution, loved by millions.
For some years now, I have been only too well aware of the alarming extent of childhood sexual abuse, but when your name was linked to childhood abuse I was very uncomfortable. I found it very hard to believe that the public figure that I had been brought up with and to know and love could possibly be a child abuser. It was almost impossible to believe you were a serial molester of young children – young girls.
As the trial has proceeded, and more and more information has come out from people claiming to be abused by you and as young as 7 so far, and to me there is only one conclusion Rolf.
I know more than most how unfair the so called Justice system is. I know the endemic corruption in the Police and the subtle and not so subtle ways they have to make you appear guilty; I know the Crown Prosecution Service can be corrupt as well; I know the Court Service is bent – so Rolf I am no pushover as regards your guilt in the Crowns Justice system. The decision of the Justice system hardly matters to me.
I am not impressed with the Crowns adversarial justice system where the prosecution seeks to portray a story, often with little relevance to the truth and the defence portrays a different mutually exclusive story also with little relevance to the truth. I am not impressed with mainstream media reports, owned by individuals via corporations whose agenda it is to make money and mould public opinion rather than print the truth. This is part of the way the truth gets distorted. For instance I believe that you did not know that you were in Cambridge when you were taking part in the Star games, which is portrayed as proof you were lying by lawyers keen to win a case or get lawyer brownie points, and newspapers keen to entertain with papers to sell and who care little for the truth. But all this is to miss the point.
I have not been to the trial but what matters to me Rolf is that I believe you are guilty. I believe this from the live tweeting from the trial , as well as alternative media reporting and analysis of mainstream media. You have known for years that you have betrayed your wife, your friends by sleeping with their daughters , your daughter by sleeping with her friend, the girls – the victims by taking advantage of your power, and you say you hate yourself for it. The only thing in dispute is not your betrayal but how young the girls were. The jury decided they were under age.
At least you have been made to face up to some of the pain and suffering you have caused. You have been made to suffer some of the humiliation and shame in front of your wife and child and the worlds media, for your actions. But by not admitting your guilt you have forced your victims through the painful process of giving evidence against you in Court. You have forced your family into being humiliated along side you.
You are an old man now. Crown Justice has failed the people yet again, as it did not prevent the child abuse that you perpetrated. It did not prevent the hurt, the shame, the pain of your victims. The Crowns government also fails victims by failing to help them to heal.
Those victims have had to live the greater part of their lives not being believed, with Police and CPS and other Crown Institutions doing little or nothing, not listening, not doing anything, turning the abuse back onto them.
But then that is exactly what those crown institutions were designed to do- designed to work for the elite and keep the people under control. Designed to hide the rampant endemic paedophilia that goes on by the powerful against the vulnerable.
The only difference, Rolf is that you are only a celebrity – one of the useful idiots beneath the powerful, so you are thrown to the baying pack to buy time and defence for the paedophile elite and their systematic institutional engrained paedophilia. You are just a disposable celebrity shield for the elite. This is at the very least condoned by MI5 but probably organised by them so that the people really in power -the banksters and Bilderbergers can do as they wish and blackmail their puppets in what appears to the public to be democratic power.
Rolf you have betrayed each and every child you have ever entertained. Shame on you.
