Will Folks Is Really Creeping Me The F--- Out
Update: Misrepresented Emails In Domestic Violence Case

Okay, Verum Serum found this (of course they found this; they find everything.)

This video, a mock interview of Haley by Folks, is disturbing for three reasons:

1. It sort of shows a hero-worship/romantic obsession with Haley. Which I would call "motive," should this turn out to be a big hoax.

2. It's kind of threatening... especially when you consider that Folks was arrested for domestic violence. And then he pled guilty to that.

Now, his claim now (after pleading guilty) is that it never happened, was all fake or whatever... Okay. Fine.

What's he doing smuggling in not one but several "jokes" about beating up Nikki Haley in this video?

If he's innocent, I guess I sort of understand that he doesn't think he should be branded as a woman-beater.. and yet... Does that extend to making jokes about giving Haley a taste of his knuckles?

I guess so.

And then he has a shot of "Nikki Haley" shuddering in fear.

WTF?

3. This just has a weird, nightmarish Rupert Pupkin vibe to it overall. It's not funny, it's talentless, and it reveals, accidentally, something unfavorable about him.

It's a weird indulgence in fantasy and self-promotion, dressed up as... Well I don't know that it's dressed up as anything. It's not really disguised at all.

Where I come from we hide our shame.

Will Folks pick-up line: Crazy in da head, crazy in da bed, crazy on the blog... just plain crazy, baby!

Or: Once you go retard, you'll be glad you gave up your key-card.

Compare... Deranged, spotlight-seeking, talentless crazy stalker Rupert Pupkin, "having lunch" with his idol Jerry Lewis (actually playing a hyrid of Jerry Lewis and Johnny Carson called "Jerry Langford").

Or, his "show," filled with the same cringey, awkwardly revelatory unfunny jokes that "Fits" trades in:

By the way, that is one of the five best movies I have ever, ever seen.

I can't think of a movie that affected me more. To this day, my brother and I will talk, and invariably something will come up that we'll both say, "It's like the King of Comedy."

Oh: Folks veers between unfunny jokes, inappropriately-excessive flattery, and threats.

This is stalker 101. Whatever is necessary to get the target into a compliant state.

Pupkin does this in the King of Comedy, too, shifting between modes at the drop of a hat. Even worse than him is Sandra Bernhardt (great in this one role), who really does insane menace well.

Those Emails Should Be Fun: This guy printed an Op-Ed by Will Folks for a local paper, in which Will Folks tried to explain away his domestic battery beef.

The editor cut a passage. Here's what, and here's why.

So he sent me the piece, and I ran it. But I didn't run ALL of it. I cut out a key passage. It went between "...I did not intentionally grab or shove her so as to cause her to fall," and "I never set out to deliberately hurt anyone..."

Here's what was cut:

Even my former fiancee herself, in an e-mail to my mother two days later, said I do feel that Will did not intend to physically harm me and further that he never intended to hurt me.

Shes right.

...

Before we decided to cut that passage, I had called Mr. Folks to tell him I had a problem with it. How was I to confirm that such an e-mail from his ex-intended actually existed? He offered to send me the e-mail itself, which he did.

What that e-mail contained differed significantly in its implications, as he had left out important context. Here's how the actual, full passage read:

While I do not agree with the statement that Will is totally innocent innocent (sic) of the charge, I do feel that he did not intend to physically harm me-- even though laying your hands on a woman in any regard is wrong. I know he just lost control of his anger and that he never intended to hurt me as he did.

As I say, I think it was a good idea to leave out Mr. Folks' truncated version of that. But I also thought it a good idea to share both versions with you here on my blog. I await your judgment as to whether I was right on either count.

Thanks to TopSecretK9.
