Most of you probably won’t remember William H. Bradshaw, whom I wrote about back in December of last year. (I had to look it up, since I had forgotten about him.) Bradshaw is a marijuana advocate and software engineer from Canada who wrote a book called Secrets of the Pink Kush. He had some unusual claims about the Nephilim. Well, he’s back with new entries in his Pink Kush series, and this time he’s chosen to write about me! Oh, I feel so lucky!
In the first volume of his Pink Kush, Bradshaw freely mixed claims from Zecharia Sitchin’s ancient astronaut theory, gigantology, and other pseudoscientific endeavors to posit a world where divinities were actually European giants from an advanced civilization, giants who tempted Eve with hallucinogenic mushrooms, fell in love with genetically non-giant women, and who planned the Great Flood. These giants, which included their king, God, gained superhuman intelligence from marijuana. Anyway, I outlined all of this here.
This apparently caught Bradshaw’s attention, and he recently wrote a confused email to me to inform me that he talks about me in the third volume of Secrets of the Pink Kush. Let’s take a look at what he had to say about me:
I have included an excerpt from Jason Colavito. […] I suspect, as do others, that he may be a shill for the New World Order Luciferians. If this is true then he and many others will never accept the truth and will always attempt to obfuscate the facts. Perhaps I am wrong and he is just a pure skeptic who will never believe anything other than mainstream ideas. Maybe Jason Colavito is honourable but just excessively skeptical and without a background in science.
He then reproduces my entire July 23, 2013 blog post without permission or payment.
I’d love to know who these “others” are who supposedly feel that I am a shill for the New World Order and Lucifer. I can’t find anyone who has said so publicly. I’d also like to know why, if the New World Order is supposedly feels that I am effective at suppressing the truth that they don’t pay me money. Where does one sign up for this lucrative Luciferian gravy train?
Bradshaw was apparently concerned that I did not notice his attack on me in the seven weeks since the book was released, so he wrote to me yesterday to inform me of his brazen misuse of my work in his book. He then added the following confusing lines:
Please note that I did not have to put the name of another author on my book as you have done. I graduated magna cum laude before you even were born. Later shill...
I’m not at all sure what he’s talking about here. No one’s name appears on my books other than my own, though I have reprinted other authors’ works, individually or in anthologies, as part of my line of classic reprints. Could he be confusing edited volumes in which I credit the original authors for imaginary co-authorship? The second point is even weirder. I happened to have graduated summa cum laude, but I fail to see what that has to do with the evidence for prehistoric giants and their advanced civilization—or the New World Order for that matter.
Oh, well. It seems that people like Bradshaw who have such strong views about their chosen views of ancient history that they have difficulty conceiving of the idea that others could have a different view without being part of a vast conspiracy.
