Re: Manti Ruh R'oh - Getting Real Creepy Real Quick

OMG now we definitely need to hear from Tuiasosopo and his supposive female cousin Kekua to clarify she never talked to Te'o. This thing just put the hammer down on gay concerns.

Re: Manti Ruh R'oh - Getting Real Creepy Real Quick

This reminds me of the story of the alleged Holocaust survivor Elie Weisel. He has gone around for 50 years claiming many things, and he is the biggest name associated with the Holocaust. Yet two of the things he is known for are not even true. There was a picture in the New York times where Elie Weisel claimed to be one of the prisoners, and it is obviously not him. This picture partly launched his fame. And he claims to have a tattoo on his arm from the prison camp, yet it has never been seen.

There is some sight out there called Elie Weisel Tattoo and just because the person who has it is a racist anti-semite doesn't mean that Elie Weisel isn't the biggest fraud on the planet.

Edit. here is the site http://www.eliewieseltattoo.com/


What is similar about this is how the media and the public will allow a bull**** narrative to go on and nobody has the guts to do real analysis and call people out on obvious nonsense (just like you never once see an announcer stand up to someone like Ray Lewis when he goes on and on about God). Sure, Ray Lewis is allowed to believe what he wants, but you will NEVER hear a legit question about it from a reporter. I mean, even if Ray Lewis were to luck out and it turns out that there is a God, his reasoning makes no sense, and it is idiotic to state and believe that this God cares about the AFC Championship game.

There are lots of lies floating around out there. Either outright frauds like Elie Weisel, or terrible ideas like the one's Ray Lewis has. Most in positions to make a difference do not have what it takes to expose bad ideas and outright lies.

Re: Manti Ruh R'oh - Getting Real Creepy Real Quick

Has this hug video between the 2 been posted?



Maybe the whole thing is an elaborate roleplay between 2 gays. What if the voicemails aren't legit? I don't know too crazy.

Re: Manti Ruh R'oh - Getting Real Creepy Real Quick

Didn't he have a roommate? If he is on the phone all night long with his gay lover, it makes sense that he would need to have a cover. And of course now that he knows that phone records will be demanded, he has to have a reason that the number will be Tuiassasoppos.

Of course, one thing that is pretty obvious is that many in his family and inner circle know that he is Tuiassassoppos lover, as not a single one of them seem to have any negative feelings to him whatsoever. If this truly was a hoax and he was an innocent victim, there would be extreme rage and calling for criminal charges, yet EVERY single person I have seen that is connected to Manti has pretty much let his Tuiassasoppo off the hook.

I saw an article that let to that site last year, and I actually put a little time into seeing if it was bull**** or not, but what happened is that Elie Weisel used another prisoners name. He does not have a tattoo, and he was not the guy in the picture.

If anyone in mainstream media ran with this story they would make a huge name for themselves, yet they are all afraid because they would be labeled anti-semites.

Your comment is typical, and it is the main reason why the truth will likely never come out on a national stage. You cannot possible criticize the head figure of the Holocaust industry without being labeled evil yourself.

And that is why he got away with it. Read up on it yourself.

Re: Manti Ruh R'oh - Getting Real Creepy Real Quick

I'm not sure how ronaiah being the actual voice benefits anyone's narrative, but it's something we have to think more clearly about because ronaiah is adamant about it being him, which is clearly not the case....

This story just keeps on giving.

What a brain-f&$k this must be on Te'o.

No wonder it took him 20 days to fess up. Must have been going out of his mind.

And knowing that he would have to face the whole world with this.

He will be hazed for his life for this.

Re: Manti Ruh R'oh - Getting Real Creepy Real Quick

somebody who's paying close attention want to estimate what the vegas odds would be on these possible scenarios reflecting the truth?

1) Te'o talked for hours with RT believing him to be Kekua
2) Te'o talked for hours with RT because they are ghey together
3) Phone records are fudged

Nothing like insinuating you've had sex before to prove you aren't gay Te'o. Don't forget you're a Mormon tard.
