Doug Philips is a tool (at best) and the now defunct Vision Forum - Part 3

Hope this commenter at Carmon's FB page follows through.

Jerri Lynn Ward Well, I am going to order the case file from the Bexar County District Clerk and I am going to look for gag orders and protective orders to see if he violated it.

he doesn't have a sex scandal tainting his name.

But he's been exonerated! I can just hear the VF supporters I used to know saying that. You know the type. The ones who excused DPIAT in the first place, saying that it could have happened to anyone. The ones who compared him to David (from the bible), who managed to rise up again and continued to be king for the rest of his life. And who was called a "man after God's own heart". So you see, DPIAT has got it made with that crowd. They are ready to believe anything he tells them to believe.

Also on Carmon's FB page, from Doug's former right hand man:

Quote

Perry C. Coghlan III: I'll echo Bob here. Doug has full control of the Vision Forum INC page. I'd be willing to bet a dollar to a doughnut he's personally overseeing the deletion/hiding of the negative comments.

The "Bob" is Bob Renaud.

No "Likes" for Doug from his biggest fans Stacy McDonald and Kelly Crawford yet? C'mon, gals-- get on the ball!

"Likes" names I recognize from my time here on FJ include James Pennington, Kevin and Kathleen Turley, a couple of Disharoons, and Daniel Foucachon (a Doug Wilson acolyte). Oh, and Beall, of course. :pb_rollseyes:

No smiley faces from the Botkin or Bradrick clans; nothing but <crickets> from Middle Tennessee and Washington State. Come on, Botkinettes - this is the man who spoke soooo eloquently about the "Biblical foundations" and many virtues of patriarchy on "Return of the Daughters!" When are you going to show him a little love???

I'm wondering if the Botkins, or any of their middle-Tennessee Courter/Vernier cohort, will publicly acknowledge Dougie's attempts at self-resurrection. Ditto the Serven Clan, Scottie Brown, and the Bradrick families. Oh, to be a mouse in the corner, able to overhear the conversations happening in those homes!

The Botkins haven't done much of anything publicly for quite some time.

Looks like the Go Wild! Casino has taken over the visionforum.com domain.

Go to Doug Phillips Is A Tool's Goodreads and follow the links to "his" website.

Well, that Q & A was terse.

And a bit bizarre. If they have no interest in re-branding, why the huge PR push, paying for FB posts to get seen and the timing?

The Tool doth protest too much, methinks.

It makes sense not to try to reopen the catalog business because it was failing anyway.  They have re-branded though:  "After Vision Forum."  Why not let the name die out?

He wants to imply that people have actually asked him to pursue church leadership, ministry, or political office.  In fact he has ambitions for all three, you can bet your boots.

He claims zero interest now because he wants to be like Caesar and have the crown offered him thrice.

I don't think he'll have much luck running for political office but stranger things have happened.  See Donald Trump.

Probably because they're afraid people will go looking for "Vision Forum" in a positive light, wanting the content, and not find them if they rebrand completely. Sketchy move and ill-advised, if you ask me. But what do I know, I'm only in marketing/pr and it's not like I've ever done a rebrand or anything ;)

In the green stripe at the very top of the page, and easy to miss: "Thanks for visiting my blog. I turn 50 next year and have an IG to share that story in pictures. https://www.instagram.com/count.down.to.50/"

Well golly gee - yet another lesson in "Let's put some lipstick on this pig!" from Be-All and Dougie. I find nothing here that sounds remotely like humility or repentance. They are the long-suffering victims, it's all about them, nary a word for Lourdes or the many other families they damaged (some of whom are commenting quite frankly on Carmon Friedrichs' FB page).

Plus ca change, plus c'est la meme chose.

It's bad enough the depths to which Dough Phillips is a Tool.

What's worse is the fools who blindly follow him, support him, and take his word for law without any though.

Anyone who knows anything, or cares to know anything, about how lawsuits work, would know that one recanted specific charge does not equate innocence.

He twists it all as he has always twisted everything. And his fans swallow it without gagging.

People scare the shit out of me.

Not everyone is jumping for joy over the return of the tool.  I think he may be a bit taken aback by the lack of support and by the amount of opposition.

It's interesting to see who is speaking out against him.

Be-all really needs to stop putting giant bows in her hair. Not even babies can pull that look off. 

Doug is like Gothard, he will never really go away.

And not ONE mention of Jesus/God/the Lord -- yep, active rebranding happening as we type.

Sadly, between the leghumpers, gullible, and wishful thinkers, Doug Phillips Is A Tool may well be successful in building a new business. Interesting, though, that Be-all is now quite open about her active role in the past scams businesses instead of pretending she was only a SAHM.

He didn't actually advertise all the filming he's been doing.  He just trailed that "private business" thing to see if people take the bait and ask what it is.

Perhaps he should hire @FundieFarmer as a consultant. ;)

Carmon has posted a response to Be-All's Q & A:

Quote

Go "through an experience like we have..."?? The passive voice in that sentence shows they definitely have a lot to learn still. These things did not passively happen to them! Doug chose to prey on and abuse Lourdes all the while he stood in front of thousands of people and lied through his teeth about what kind of man he was–for *years*. He gladly took their money and respect and used it for his own benefit, while living a double life–for *years*. He has not shown an iota of humility in that. Where is the restitution for the people who believed him and gave to his ministry, attended his conferences, and bought the stuff he sold? Where are the apologies to them for the harm he did to their faith and the faith of their children?

Well done, Carmon!  

The comparison to Profumo is quite apt.  I'm amazed she's heard of him.

I wasn't familiar with Carmon before reading this thread, but I'm very impressed with what I am reading.

Does she continue to blog, or is she only on FB?  I'd like to keep up with her.

It is strange that they don't mention Jesus or God. What kind of business do you think he will go for? I am thinking motivational speaker. Or back to law?

And here we thought that it was the interns fixing the typos on Doug's Blog:

Quote

Carmon Friedrich: This post and my other are public, and I tagged them in both. I think they are paying attention to what people are commenting here. I used to edit Doug's blog to clean up his typos and he was pretty obsessed with watching for criticisms from other people. [Emphasis added]

      I danced through my living room feeling awesome. From time to time I do this. Maybe wine is involved. Good music is definitely involved. It is awesome. I recommend it to you. With or without wine.

      After a few months of trying to decide what kind of new computer to get and my brother telling me a Mac would be the best decision I could ever make and my sister telling me that would be the worst and I ought to stick to Windows.... I now have a used Mac. I am trying to get used to it. Not easy, but the Magnifying program is a lot better than the Windows one (that was the ultimate reason for my decision) and FJ works a lot better than on my 10-year old Laptop, too!!

      Y'all, holter monitors suck. And naturally the palpitations that caused this test to be ordered are remarkably absent today. 
      I'm off to go work out in the hopes that triggers it. T minus 10 hours till I get this thing off.

      I frigging hate the toilets at this worksite. Specifically the door locks. Stupid little knoblet that isn't clear if it is locked or not. Door opens right off the main hallway and the toilet is just far enough from the door that I can't just hold the door shut in case I've got the lock wrong. I mean really people, how hard is it to design this? I just want to pee in private with no anxiety. Apparently that is too much to ask for.

      First thing I'm doing when I get to the hereafter is finding the ancestors who moved to the US in the first place and asking them what the fuck they were thinking moving here in the first place.  Along with giving them an epic the reason you suck speech hopefully in the presence of God and the Lord Jesus Christ Himself to all of them for condemning their descendants to living in a shithole.

      Do any of you play Dyson Sphere Program?   For those who don't know what it is I'd suggest Googling it, because there's no way I could do it justice. 
      There's always just one more thing to do before I turn off.  Blink!  And it's 2 hours later.
