Richard Musgrave: an American pervert

On or around July 2, American Richard Musgrave, 51, was arrested outside Angeles City in the Philippines. Angeles City is located near where Clark Air Base used to be. I was stationed there for three years while in the Air Force. Clark Air Base is no longer an active base for the U.S. military, but unfortunately, the hundreds of bars outside the base are seemingly still there. Instead of catering to off-duty Air Force personnel, the bars now provide services to foreign men going to the Philipines for sex tourism. Men like Richard Musgrave.


The Anti-Trafficking in Persons Act is a law enacted in 2003.  It criminalizes numerous acts including sex tourism, prostitution, and pornography.

From Journal Online:

According to Senior Inspector Santifrey Lorenzo, Musgrave filmed the informant three years ago. Without her consent, he then published the videos online. Until the videos were discovered online, her family probably didn’t even know she was a sex worker. What a creep.

A Sony Handycam, three Filipinas, and some lubricants isn’t an actual website. According to GoDaddy, the domain is available for only $12.95. It doesn’t say if they also throw in t-shirts. Or lubricants.

Perverts like Richard Musgrave give Americans a bad name. They fly to the Philippines to record naked women 30 years their junior, so they can then post the videos online. That’s not why the Orville Brothers invented the airplane. That’s not why Al Gore invented the Internet. The women involved were undoubtedly poor and without privilege. Why else would they be sex workers in Angeles City?

Angeles City and the surrounding area was a very depressing place in the mid to late 1980’s. I can only imagine how bad it is now. I got myself certified in scuba and went diving every chance I could. One of the reasons for this was the Philipines had some of the best scuba diving in the world. The other reason was to get away from Clark Air Base and the surrounding area. If it wasn’t for scuba diving and the Commodore 64 club, I would have lost my mind.

I guess I always assumed the bars went out of business without U.S. service members to have as customers.  It’s sad to find out that didn’t happen.

I only went to the bars in Angeles City for the cheap beer and the air conditioning

From what I remember, San Miguel beer was quite good. But what did I know? I was 20 years old. All beer tastes good to a 20-year-old.

When I was there, the main attraction of the bars was the cheap beer (a whole case of San Miguel was $3), air conditioning, music, and bar girls dancing in bikinis on raised platforms behind the bar. Of those things, the cheap beer was the most important. The bar girls were the least important. Everything else fell somewhere in between. It would seem that’s all been turned around. The bar girls have become the most important thing and their activities now go beyond just dancing in bikinis.  I highly doubt men in their 50s get on an airplane and fly thousands of miles to go to Angeles City so they can buy cheap beer.

So what will happen to Richard Musgrave?

I haven’t been able to find any articles online about Musgrave’s case other than the initial arrest. One of the articles says he lives in Taiwan. From what I saw on Instagram, that appears to be the case. It looks like he’s married to a Taiwanese woman. It also looks like they have at least one daughter. She looked to be only a few years younger than some of the Filipinas Musgrave is accused of abusing.

How can a man with an Asian daughter do the things Musgrave is accused of doing to other Asian girls? I hope he’s convicted and spends time in prison.

Bad men like Richard Musgrave are the reason good men build prisons.

Can you still pretend you are a male feminist when you kill a woman?

YouTube personality and male feminist Aleksandr Kolpakov (a.k.a. Russian Deadpool) is sitting in a Colorado jail cell awaiting trial for second-degree murder. Kolpakov shot girlfriend and YouTube channel co-host Heather Anable in the neck and chest, killing her.

If you’ve never heard of Russian Deadpool before now, I envy you. I’m only aware of him because he was the co-moderator of a “debate” between Carl Benjamin (a.k.a. Sargon of Akkad) and Kristi Winters. The debate was held on Kolpakov and Anable’s YouTube channel, The Skeptic Feminist.

Before you try to watch the debate, I recommend brewing a pot of strong coffee and snorting some crushed up NoDoz.

I tried to watch the debate shortly after it happened, but I found it too boring to watch. The topic was Is Feminism Good for the World. Kristi was debating for the affirmative, Carl was debating for the negative. My favorite part was the anime poster behind the two moderators. I don’t know a lot about formal debate, by I would think one of the first things you would want to do is get rid of decor that doesn’t have anything to do with the subject. How hard is it to take down an anime poster?

Is Aleksandr Kolpakov still a feminist?

If you’re sitting in a jail cell awaiting trial for murdering a woman, can you still call yourself a male feminist?  I don’t think so. I think killing a woman means an automatic expulsion from the male feminist club. There are many types of feminists practicing many types of feminism, but I’ve got to think a common belief all feminists share is the belief that killing a defenseless woman is wrong.

Kolpakov still believes he’s a feminist. He’s even still using the Russian Deadpool pseudonym. He’s been corresponding with feminist YouTuber Jenny McDermott. She’s made videos about their correspondence. In the first video, she held up a letter he wrote to her and you can clearly see where he signed it as “Aleksandr Kolpakov AKA Russian Deadpool.”

What a dirt bag. When you shoot and kill someone, maybe you should retire the YouTube username based on a comic book character who shoots people. I imagine Marvel Comics isn’t too happy to have their intellectual property associated with someone like Aleksandr Kolpakov. This case will most likely get more publicity when he goes on trial. Evidently Kolpakov is blaming his actions on poisoned psychedelic mushrooms, so I’m sure the case will have lots and lots of needless drama. If Aleksandr Kolpakov has any honor, he’d plead guilty and spare Heather Anable’s family the ordeal of a trial.

I wouldn’t be surprised if the trial shows up as a Dateline episode.

Chicago thugs kidnap then torture special-needs teen

From CNN:

Four suspects have been charged in connection with the attack on a special-needs teen that was streamed on Facebook Live.

Jordan Hill, 18; Tesfaye Cooper; 18; Brittany Covington, 18; and Tanishia Covington, 24, have each been charged with a hate crime, felony aggravated kidnapping, aggravated unlawful restraint and aggravated battery with a deadly weapon.

Hill, Cooper and Brittany Covington also face charges of residential burglary. Hill also faces charges of possession of a stolen motor vehicle.

Video of the torture has stunned the country, not just but because of the graphic abuse, but because of the comments made by some of the assailants.

“F*ck Donald Trump!” one attacker shouted in the video. “F*ck white people!”

It’s now 2017. If an attacker can be heard on the video using the word “fuck” then report that. It’s as though someone is going to read about how this special-needs teen was held against his will and subjected to torture, but get outraged over the fact the word “fuck” was correctly spelled out.

It’s 2017. Stop protecting people from dirty words. Stop coddling people.

It should surprise no one that this brutal incident took place in Chicago. The four suspects sound like they are both vicious and stupid, a really bad combination. They’re vicious for what they did to the victim. They are stupid for posting the whole thing on Facebook.

I don’t understand why they’re charged with a hate crime. I understand the victim is white and the suspects are black, but this crime would have been just as heinous if everyone involved was black, white, or Asian.

I don’t agree with hate crimes. Not really. Since when is it against the law to hate someone or something? As far as I’m concerned, these four animals should be allowed to hate Donald Trump or even to hate white people if they want to. What they’re not allowed to do is to kidnap, restrain, and then torture someone. Hate can be a motive, but it cannot or should not be the crime itself. The kidnapping, restraint, and battery are far worse than any supposed hate crime.

Hate is an emotion. I care about the act of violence. I could not care less about the emotional state of a criminal when they commit an act of violence.

NFL player calls for the death of George Zimmerman jurors

Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Roddy White took to the Twitter last night to officially register his displeasure with the outcome of the George Zimmerman murder trial. The jury came to their verdict late last night, acquitting Zimmerman of all charges involving the shooting death of Trayvon Martin. It turns out, White wasn’t a fan of the outcome.

Here is his first Twitter tweet:

Fucking Zimmerman got away with murder today wow what kind of world do we live in

— Roddy White (@roddywhiteTV) July 14, 2013

A world where overpaid athletes use profanity and practice improper grammar? He goes on with the following:

All them jurors should go home tonight and kill themselves for letting a grown man get away with killing a kid

— Roddy White (@roddywhiteTV) July 14, 2013

And so it begins. I doubt Roddy White was the first to call for the death of the Zimmerman jurors, and something tells me he won’t be the last. This is why I would have found Zimmerman guilty, not because I thought the prosecution made its case, it didn’t, but because I wouldn’t want to be involved with any of the post-trial drama, including professional athletes calling for my death.

I’m not sure if NFL commissioner Roger Goodell will have something to say about Roddy White’s Twitter tweet. The NFL may have rules against players advocating the death of six women not smart enough to get out of jury duty.
