"Central Park Karen" Shares Insight Into Having Life Ruined By Internet Mob: "I still live in hiding three years after"
Consensus does not determine reality or fact. Quite frankly, it is a negative phenomenon that results in uninformed thinking and decision-making as it leads to a suspension of critical thinking.
This is why the mob is almost ALWAYS wrong. Not only are you better off doing or thinking the exact opposite of the mob, but it is probably the moral thing to do in most situations since groupthink often leads to unethical behavior.
Subsequently, cancel culture is not only unethical, but it is more or less, based on wrong assumptions.
Unfortunately, Amy Cooper fell victim to the mob and is still in hiding even though her incident occurred several years ago, according to her op-ed in Newsweek.
Amy, who was dubbed the “Central Park Karen,” accused a black birdwatcher of threatening to poison her dog three years ago and she said she is still suffering from that decision to this day. The worst part about all this, it was she who was the true victim in this situation.
Amy unleashed her dog in Central Park the same day that George Floyd died. Birdwatcher Christian Cooper yelled at her to re-leash her dog, and said, “If you’re going to do what you want, I’m going to do what I want, but you’re not going to like it.”
That statement is so vague, it's scary because you have no idea what he is going to do but all you know is that you will not like it.
“Christian taunted me to call the police. Seeing no other choice, I called 911 and described the man who was threatening me. But due to very spotty service in the park, I had to repeat my description of Christian multiple times,” she said. “The 911 tape makes it very clear that the dispatcher couldn’t hear me due to the poor connection—yet this fact went unreported, skewing perceptions of my actions. There were never any racial implications to my words. I just felt raw fear, and desperately wanted help.”
Subsequently, Cooper was not only labeled a racist but lost her job. They also tried to come after her dog. But fortunately, it was returned to her a week after the “rescue” took it because police said the pup was perfectly healthy.
The dumbest thing about this is that you have to give a description to the police when reporting an incident. Was she supposed to say he was white?
“Everyone believed and amplified one story: That a white ‘Central Park Karen’ called the police on an innocent Black man, a bird watcher, because of the color of his skin,” Amy said. “Today, I want you to read and understand the whole story. Not just what the media told you. And after you assess both sides — please tell me — was my never-ending cancel-culture sentence a just verdict?”
Amy said she has faced backlash since 2020.
“As Christian’s video went viral, my life, as I knew it, was over. All my personal information was released online. I received many hundreds of threatening graphic images, death threats, and hate mail, which continues to this day,” she wrote. “My employer fired me the day after the incident without ever taking the time to learn the facts. Clearly in survival mode, my company released a strong statement distancing itself from me, effectively blacklisting my career.”
What you probably have not read was that the bird watcher actually has a history of threatening dog walkers.
According to a May 2020 testimony, Jerome Lockett, a black man, said Christian had “aggressively” threatened him in the park. “When I saw that video, I thought, I cannot imagine if he approached her the same way how she may have genuinely been afraid for her life.” He continued, “If I wasn’t who I was, I would have called the police on that guy too.”
He also said that he knows two fellow dog owners who have had similar situations with the bird watcher but did not feel comfortable coming forward because they’re white.
There is also a recording of Christian at a local community board meeting just days before his encounter with Amy. “It’s getting super ugly between birders and unleashed dog walkers,” he said at that time.
“So, the next time you feel like telling someone to kill themselves after watching a two-minute video, know there is likely far more to the story — no matter what the claims.”
All that said, even if we didn’t know any of this it does not take even half a brain to know the bird watcher said some weird and vague thing that Amy took as a threat. She obviously was scared and this had nothing to do with race.
Why did Christian even post the video online? To set an example for unleashed dog walkers? To scare people away so he can watch his birds in peace?
What this shows is that some weirdo, like the bird watcher, can threaten your dog, but if you dare call the police you are evil, as long as the person harassing you has a certain skin tone and you are white.
And for the record, everyone knows birds are racist. So you would think that a bird watcher is also racist. But whatever. Anything to dismantle systemic racism, right?
