Who Is Jasmine Cassandra And Why Is She Trolling Rick Tryon?

 

________________________________________________________________________

Okay, so I was intrigued when I was informed by a friend this morning that someone was bashing poor old Ricky Tryon on the E-City Beat Facebook page. When I went and took a look and saw it was someone called Jasmine Cassandra my first impression was, “Who?”. But then I remembered that this Jasmine person has kind of had it out for me for awhile.

Last October she went on a public Facebook page and referred to me as “…a man that is known for his misogynistic behavior”. Wow.

As you might imagine, this attempted public assassination of my character by trying to paint me as a misogynist was not received too kindly by my wife, my daughters, my granddaughter, my mother, my nieces, my sisters-in-law or my many female friends and colleagues whom I respect and love. Of course, the page administrator for Great Falls Area Concerned Citizens removed her ridiculous and slanderous comment.

I would ask Ms. Cassandra if she can provide even one example of my apparently well-known misogynistic behavior? Since she did not and cannot, I would next ask if she even knows or understands the definition of ‘misogynist’?

I have no clue as to why Cassandra, who I have never met or had any contact or conflict with, and who knows absolutely nothing about me, my personal life, or where I’ve come from, insists on trolling me. So I did a little digging after I saw her additional ugly comments from today.

Jasmine Cassandra is also known as Jasmine Taylor and is listed as a board member in charge of ‘outreach’ for the Great Falls LGBTQ+ Center. 

With absolutely no provocation or reason I can think of here’s some of what Jasmine Cassandra/Taylor said about me this morning:

“He’s (Rick Tryon) a failed wannabe politician who is openly prejudiced.” – If I’m ‘openly prejudiced’ then Ms. Cassandra/Taylor should be able to provide an example, but of course she doesn’t.

“Prejudice would be based on falsehood and preconceived notions. I’m assessing Rick based on his multiple prejudiced posts.” – This is classic troll talk here, mentions ‘…multiple prejudiced posts’ without giving even one example.

“I agree that Rick is like Trump in that he spews (the word is apropo here) hateful rhetoric, because being incendiary is easier than being logical and insightful.” – So, where is an example of the ‘hateful rhetoric’ I’ve been spewing? Does ol’ Jasmine think folks should just take her word for it?

Apparently I’m a hateful, prejudiced, misogynist according to Cassandra/Taylor who doesn’t know me, has never met me, and can’t provide even one example corroborating her ridiculous and hateful personal insults against me. Is this what the Great Falls LGBTQ+ Center considers “outreach”?

Finally, there’s this from Cassandra/Taylor: “Rick doesn’t get to be both vitriolic and hateful AND sensitive.” – What’s that old saying about when you point your finger at someone there’s three pointing back at you? Jasmine provides the perfect example of that right here.

My advice to this person who is so casually and ignorantly lashing out at me for some strange reason: Jasmine Cassandra/Taylor, if you don’t want to continue to be thought of as a shallow, mean little troll then stop acting like a shallow, mean little troll.

  1. There is a saying: “Consider the source.” It appears that by dropping names she wants to be associated with, that speaks all you need to know about the who and why. I had a pastor who had a saying that basically said when you are being attacked over your beliefs, or pointing out things that should be, you know you are doing something good. Keep up the good work, Rick.
