Xenophobia, Bigotry, & Crop Circles

The latest post from Crop Circles Anonymous is worth quoting in full:

”And the disgraceful persecution of Monique Klinkenbergh continues.

The attached was posted on the ridiculously named Crop Circles The People The Mystery The Truth page on 1 August.

Monique attackThe assumption that someone would only give up their business and move to Wiltshire in pursuit of crop circles if they intended to monetise the subject says more about the author of this invective than it does about Ms Klinkenbergh. Not everybody’s motivations are mercenary.

‘We want circles fully back in Wiltshire’, you say. The use of the word ‘fully’ here would seem an acknowledgement that the absurd and self-serving ‘no circles in Wiltshire’ campaign has been a failure, as – ironically – circle makers do not support it.

‘If you f***k then [sic. – we hope] things will get back to normal’? It is evident to anybody who cares to look that crop circles in Wiltshire were being routinely cut by farmers before Ms Klinkenbergh began her ‘access pass’ scheme. The reasons for this have been rehearsed elsewhere and cannot be laid at Ms Klinkenbergh’s door. They cannot get back to the ‘normal’ you would wish if Ms Klinkenbergh ‘f***’s because they were not ‘normal’ before her arrival.

You have a very limited view of crop circle history, which seems to only encompass the last five or six years. Those of us who have been on the scene for much longer are well-aware that a wider spread of crop circles across the country, rather than an overwhelming concentration in Wiltshire with occasional stragglers elsewhere, was ‘normal’. The normal you seek is in itself abnormal.”
