Thanks, But I Can Speak For Myself

All of my life I have done just fine when it comes to speaking for myself. I have never really had a problem in stating my viewpoint on various subjects. (Those of you who are regular readers of this blog will know that to be true.) I have never hesitated to speak out when I thought an injustice had been done, or when I felt that a news event needed to be highlighted — whether good or bad. With regards to Israel, I have made every effort to expose the lies of the media, the politicians, and self-appointed leaders around the world. Through the Emet News Service (and its predecessor) I have strove to show the deception the nations have used in order to implement the actual "final solution", in regards to the Jewish people and the nation of Israel.

In all of this, I have never claimed to speak for anybody else but myself. My writings and opinions were just that, my own writings and opinions. I have never claimed that I spoke for any group of people or any individuals.

Now, it seems that there are many organizations, self-appointed leaders, and other various groups that claim to speak for me. It seems everyday I read statements made by people I have never met who claim they are speaking on my behalf. It's becoming a regular thing.

Who are these people and how do they know me? How can they claim to know what I feel and what I think when I have never even met them, much less shared my feelings with them? How is it that they can make statements to the media and various organizations and governments on my behalf? Did I miss something somewhere? I know that I didn't vote for them, nor did I ever sign any statement giving them this authority. So how is this happening and why?

Well, since I certainly don't know them I can only make assumptions. And I really hate to do that. But it sure seems that many of them are getting a lot of free press and large sums of money for their purported representation of me. It's not that I want the money — I don't, and I get enough press coverage as it is — I don't need anymore. It's just that I don't think they should be getting all of this for something they don't really do.

I don't have to name these organizations, self-appointed leaders, and other various groups. You know who they are. You should, they represent you also. Or at least that's what they say. And I don't know, maybe they do. And that's fine. It doesn't really matter to me. I just didn't ask them to represent me, so I wish they would stop telling people they do.

So to all those organizations, self-appointed leaders, and other various groups who claim to represent me, let me just say this: Please check before you say that you represent someone because there are many of us who can speak just fine for ourselves. And we really don't want any self-appoint leaders and/or spokespersons telling people how we supposedly feel and what we supposedly think. We can do that ourselves quite nicely, thank you.
