Selmer Hanson, prolific pedophile and former vice president of Prairie Bible Institute decided to preen like a peacock on social media in an attempt to rehabilitate his reputation. Yes, the man really is that stupid! Did he really think people would overlook the fact that he is a self-confessed pedophile?
I have been fighting to keep Selmer out of positions of leadership and trust with access to children for a few years and knew a thing or two about fighting. But for a fight to be a good one it has to be fair. I figured that the guy just didn't realize the power that social media had to expose him. It was one thing for me to wage my one-woman crusade against him but did he really want to deal with the full power of social media? I personally warned Selmer about this when I emailed him: "Your social media blitz will certainly backfire on you. Instead of rehabilitating your on-line reputation, you are merely advertising to more people about your pedophilia."
I didn't figure Selmer would listen to me but at least he was warned. There would be no way in the world that this would turn out to be a good thing. But the train had already left the station and well, you know what was bound to happen.
Any pedophile who thinks they can use social media to garner support is a fool. Recently Selmer reinvented himself as a life coach/grief counselor and then went on a fast and furious social media blitz to tell the world what a highly respected man he is. The man was preening like a peacock!
Predictably this backfired on Selmer who has now gotten far more notoriety than he would have otherwise. His social media blitz drew thousands of people to the blog we set up to expose him (http://selmerhansonisapedophile.blogspot.com). People who didn't know him are now outraged that he is flaunting his ability to escape prosecution because he committed these crimes in a foreign country.
When Selmer first started his social media blitz his writings were just atrocious. It would appear that his wife Sharon has now taken over the editing of his posts. There is much more editing to be done, and broken links to fix. Check out this statement that Selmer wrote and see if it makes any sense to you. "Selmer Hanson could be a leadership coach and life counselor UN agency has increased abundant expertise in serving to others. He says that life itself could be a smart professional, which your highschool and school experiences square measure solely the start. He says that this might not be beyond the reality, which each expertise you undergo in life helps to cultivate you each in person and professionally." Huh? Makes you just want to just run out and hire him to be your life coach doesn't it? This is just one of many atrocious examples of the man's inability to write. If the man can't put two sentences together, how in the world is he going to help you with something as daunting as figuring out what to do with your life?
I've never have been a fan of life coaches; most of them are full of trite clichés, fluff and flowery words that don't mean jack and they charge you an arm and leg to tell you how to do something they don't even do in their own lives. No, I prefer real tried and true information that passes the-rubber-meets-the-road test. That you can generally get for free by reading books from the library or talking to wise souls. Don't expect to find any of it from this guy.
Seems Selmer has found that social media is not willing to embrace a pedophile who masquerades as a life coach/grief counselor. He seems frustrated that the social media blitz he envisioned has gone belly-up. Apparently his frustration got the best of him one day when he wrote:
"Malicious opinions are flaunted by arrogant self-righteous voices that have taken advantage of social media to spread their lies and hatred." Surely he must be joking! Surely he was not calling out those of us who have stood up for the truth was he? It was time to directly respond to this!
Selmer, if you are going to directly call out those who stand up to your lies on social media, then be prepared for a response and a loud one!
"Malicious opinions", no Selmer these are not malicious opinions. You sexually abused over a dozen little girls in the Philippines. You repeatedly confessed both in writing and verbally to sexually abusing them. This is no longer an opinion; it is a fact. What you did to these children was malicious; you stole their innocence. You are the monster who preyed on them and destroyed their lives. And you dare to call anyone else "malicious"? Seriously?
"Flaunted", now it is interesting that you would use this word because it is exactly what a peacock does when it struts around showing off its feathers. Look at the things you have been saying about yourself: "Selmer Hanson is recognized as one of the best counselors around", "Selmer Hanson is highly respected by his clients and peers", blah, blah, blah. This self-serving comment you made is choice: "Selmer Hanson has been a melancholy guide for a long time right now, gathering a level of ability that is frightfully esteemed inside of the exchange." Forgetting the atrocious writing, Selmer I have never heard anyone say that they were "frightfully esteemed". Who are these people who "frightfully esteem" you? You have been talking non-stop about how well respected you are with your clients and your peers. Ever heard of the phrase "let no man praise himself"? If your clients and peers are so enamored with your work, then let them post it on your sites with their names attached. Surely, they are not ashamed of being enamored with a pedophile are they? No, there is only one person flaunting their peacock feathers and that is you!
"Arrogant", you say? Arrogance is your middle name. In fact I think your middle initial "B" stands for "blow-hard". You never miss the opportunity to praise your own abilities and accomplishments. You reek of arrogance and pride.
"Self-righteous", you did have to use that word didn't you? I tell you what self-righteous is - it is when you elevate yourself to pastor of churches and you don't tell the people in your congregations about being a pedophile so they all assume they can trust you. It is keeping them in the dark so they allow you to take their families camping. Need I remind you that you sexually abused missionary kids in the Philippines when you took them camping? And to add insult to injury, you took Filipino kids camping in Canada! Do you think this went unnoticed by the MKs you abused? Self-righteous is when you don't tell your employers about being a pedophile and then get mad at the whistleblower who exposes you. Self-righteous is when you go on a social media blitz to rehabilitate your reputation and then trash talk those who take a stand against you. Self-righteous is when you lie on a stack of bibles that you stopped abusing kids when you left the Philippines when you really didn't.
"Voices" so glad you included that word Selmer. Yes, your victims have found their voices and they are telling their stories. The tables have turned and they aren't afraid of you anymore. You ought to fear what they have yet to expose.
"That have taken advantage of social media". Yep, what a beautiful tool social media has been for those of us who hunt down pedophiles. It makes it impossible for you pedophiles to hide like you used to. And that is a good thing, a very good thing.
"To spread their lies" Again, Selmer these are not lies. You have already confessed to abusing these children. If you want we can get into specifics we can. You came to a six-year-old little girl and told her "Auntie Sharon won't take care of me tonight, will you"? And you took her little hands and taught her how to fondle you. Should I get more specific? You told a little girl who ran and hid from you to try to save herself from being abused that you are "like God and know her hiding places". Do you have any idea what you did to that precious child's concept of God? You are nothing like God Selmer! Want more? There is a lot more I could expose Selmer. Times when you fondled little girls under the table in the dining room while you talked to visiting missionaries across the table about "things of God". You groomed these little girls to use for your own despicable and perverted sexual satisfaction. You came home to Canada and administered a Bible college and hid your filthy secret. You lied to all your students Selmer. I was one of your students and you lied to me Selmer. Sadly, you are still lying.
"...and hatred" You got me on that one. I feel such disdain for you knowing the horrid things you did to these children. I hate how you have damaged them and caused such horrific pain in their lives. I hate how you twisted good and made it evil. I hate how you told them you represented God and then acted like the devil instead. I hate that you hid behind the pulpit and claimed to speak for God when you are nothing but a fraud and a fake. I hate how your apologies were nothing more than minimizing and blaming your victims. I hate how you just will not take ownership. I hate how you just will not stop all this self-promotion at the expense of these survivors.
Selmer, you can preen like a peacock all you want but be prepared to have your crow feathers handed back to you when you call out those who stand up to your lies. You are a pedophile and no amount of self-promotion is ever going to change that. No amount of deleting on your part is ever going to wipe away all of the references to you being a pedophile. It is forever out there in cyberspace. And thanks to your social media blitz, now thousands of people who never knew you before now know what a prolific pedophile you are. Congratulations Selmer! Your social media blitz was most successful - we couldn't have gotten the word out without you.
