Robert Mann

Robert Mann Given One Final Chance to Defend His Defamatory Statements or Apologize for Knowingly Lying

By: Peter Egan

Robert Mann is the type of person who would assassinate the character of people he's never met and knows very little about, then go into hiding when confronted about the intellectually dishonest libel he published in a number of places in print (shame on the editor) and on his blog.

I came upon "Bob" Mann's attacks on my father and I while researching my own name. I issued a rebuttal, decimated all of his talking points, immediately notified him when my rebuttal was published and offered to publish any response he would like to offer, either defending his knowingly false narratives or apologizing for spinning innocuous words so that with all context removed, he could mislead readers into thinking that the context-free, selectively chosen quotes represented the narrative that he was trying aggressively to push --- notably that my father and I are bad people.


Robert ("Bob") Mann
He went down the entire list of liberal stereotypes of others and called one or both of us racist, sexist, homophobic, insensitive and a variety of other names, none of which had even so much as a modicum of truth to them.

I responded to inform him that his plan to libel me without me finding out had failed, and that I would afford him an opportunity to apologize or defend his words, the latter being virtually impossible after I'd demonstrated that his conclusions did not follow his premises. His logic was laughably bad, and I took no mercy in pointing that out.

The issue is that true to form, the cowardice that defines him has kept him in hiding from me. He knows he cannot defend the indefensible, he knows he can't match wits with me and he knows that he knew at the time he wrote his original hit piece that there wasn't a word of truth to it. A real man would have apologized and accepted responsibility for a childish temper tantrum against people he doesn't even know and hasn't even met. If he had any character or fortitude he'd have asked for forgiveness, and it would have been granted so long as his apology was made public.


Robert Mann: Libelous loser still too cowardly to defend his intellectually dishonest character assassination of two good men; each of whom is 1,000 times the man he is.


Maybe that's why there's an extra "n" at the end of his name... Trying to compensate for being such a sad little excuse of a man.

Unfortunately, I cannot relate to such a pathetic individual. He is so far beneath being a beta male combined with my suspicion that he's almost certainly lacking in the "manliness" department (very low-T); and the fear that he'll have his absence of academic integrity exposed. I may leave him to remain cowering in fear inside whatever to rock you've been hiding under since I first confronted him should he fail to respond to this message.

Heed this warning that if I take a hiatus so you don't die of a panic attack, it does not mean that you're off the hook.

Before the end of the year (2017) Robert Mann will either need to write a letter of apology to myself and my father, with a copy of each going to the Times Picayune/NOLA as well as both the New Orleans and Baton Rouge Advocate. An additional copy must be published on his blog where his defining trait (cowardice) is still on full display.

Mr. Mann's deadline is December 31, 2017, to send the letters to my father and I. If you wait that long, you may not submit a copy of either letter to any newspaper until they've returned to a normal news cycle. Sending them when they could be published on a day nobody is reading news (New Year's, Christmas, college football bowl games and playoffs all must be out of the each paper's content lineup when the letters are sent.

The hard deadline for sending a copy to every major newspaper in the area is January 12.

Mr. Mann is welcome to submit them early so long as it's not during Thanksgiving or any other annual event that dominates news for at least a day.

At the end of each letter Robert Mann will thank me for being so benevolent towards him, and he must sincerely ask my forgiveness. If he puts in the effort, I will accept. Should he fail to take this most generous of offers lightly and not meet my demands to my satisfaction, he will look back on it as among the worst decisions he's ever made in life.

I think I've been pretty clear about what is expected of Mr. Robert Mann. It is NOT in his best interests to fail to do as I have instructed.

He's got plenty of time, so the letters better be good. One wrong word (suppose he wrote it in a sarcastic or cynical tone, for example), and I will metaphorically castrate him in all areas of life, and there will be no second chances.

I'll see to it that each of the first ten pages of search results (a number typically in the #neighborhood of 100 web pages) for searches of the name "Robert Mann" return pages I will have created and written and they will contain whatever I deem fit. To reiterate, that is whatever I see fit --- I and I alone will determine what Mr. Mann's eternal online legacy will be. I'm quite capable of making good on these threats, so he'd have to be a complete fool to pass on this most generous of opportunities.

And defining your eternal online legacy however I so choose may not be the only consequence he will face if he fails any portion of what he's been told to do.

The letters had better damn well be good and they better be sincere.


Robert Mann


Mr. Mann made a very bad decision when he chose to libel my father and I, and now his path of least resistance involves a simple yet sincere apology. He will acknowledge that he knew he took statements out-of-context in an attempt to depict each of us in an unflattering manner. He will admit that he knew perfectly well what was said by each of us and chose to play semantics to try to discredit us, damage our names and our reputations.

Everything Mann have been instructed to do is consistent with what is known to be truthful and accurate regarding this situation. That's not even mentioning that it's the right thing to do on his behalf, and the only mature option in his possession.

This will be HIS one and only opportunity to issue an apology for his prior transgressions. Showing a modicum of humility and demonstrating that he can admit when he's wrong, and he knew at the time you wrote the initial hit piece that he were being deceptive in the way you attempted to discredit and belittle us; will save him from great suffering. I will do everything I can do that is not illegal to ensure his is the legacy of a coward, and that the eternal internet of things remembers and associates the name Robert Mann with terms like cowardly, intellectually dishonest, sinister and liar long after we're both gone from this earth.

If I were him, I would NOT reject this olive branch. I've already written the legacy of one person who crossed me, and if ever my written synopsis of Robert Mann's life and who he is as a person is how his eternal legacy is written, I will do far more damage to Mann's name than he did to mine, and it will be far worse than was the case for the last unrepentant piece of trash who behaved badly enough toward me that it merited a retaliation.

If Mr. Mann needs any more convincing that enduring a few days of feeling humbled is an extraordinarily generous offer, he should ask himself if he'd be okay with his great grandchildren learning everything they'll ever know about their grandfather from me, what I wrote about him and did what is necessary to ensure top position in organic search results for his name as the search term.

After all, "what's good for the goose is good for the gander." I can be very creative too, Mr. Mann.


Imagine the your unborn generations having to grow up knowing the founding patriarch of their family was best remembered for being a liar, a coward and all-around low-life.

This should be the single easiest decision you'll ever have to make.

All that I am asking of you is that you do what is right, acknowledge that you be
came carried away amid the heat of a white hot election, and knowingly lied, conveniently left out the ever-important context, spun what was said out of context to fit your narrative and attempted to convince a large group of people that my father and I said things we did not say (nor say anything remotely similar). You did this with malicious intent. Had you not libeled me I likely would have never have even heard your name.

Apologize to my father and I, or at the very least attempt to defend your remarks about us. If you do either of these (the latter has to be serious and since I already discredited every argument you made in the hit piece, you'll have to admit making a very poor case against us and one which was easily debunked.

Should you fail to do any of this, I will be left with no choice but to establish control of search results for queries involving your name, so as to ensure that the top 100 or so results are either hosted on sites I either own or control, or are social media pages that link to the pages on my sites.

I feel like I am being extremely generous by giving you an opportunity to repent. I will not be bullied by some effeminate leftist, so this is your one and only opportunity to prevent me from writing the version of your biography that will be remembered and will still be available 150 years from now.

You have until the end of the year to submit a draft to my father and I as a gesture of good faith. You have until January 12, 2018 to have published the letter to your blog and to the two newspapers which published the print version of your letter.

The fact that one of their contributors knowingly lied for the sake of character assassination is newsworthy in itself. Since I've already proven your claims false, there is no reason either publication wouldn't publish a letter from me exposing the intellectual dishonesty in the letters these entities published which you wrote, prior to my thorough debunking of them.


You have until January 12, Mr. Mann. If you were smart you'd make appeasing me and admitting your childish mistake among your top priorities until such time as I am satisfied with your efforts at repentance and show of remorse.

Should you 
continue hiding from me, I will male the consequences you will face far worse than if you stand by your statements and attempt to defend them. Wrong as you may e in doing so, it would at least demonstrate that you have some measure of fortitude and aren't so cowardly that your photograph belongs in the dictionary next to the word.

This is your final warning. Please do not make me destroy your reputation forever.
