According to an unhinged media statement by SNAP National Director David Clohessy, Penn State University's removal of a commemorative statue of legendary football coach Joe Paterno is not nearly enough punishment.
According to the hysterical Clohessy, the mere name of the deceased coach should be scrubbed from "everywhere on campus," as if the guy never even existed in the first place.
The hypocrisy of it all
By Clohessy's own standard, Clohessy should ban public mention of his own name!
As we have reported several times before, David Clohessy has admitted that he did not report his own brother Kevin to the police even though he suspected Kevin was abusing innocent kids and admittedly knew "for years about the allegations."
Clohessy's inaction was no different than that of Joe Paterno. In fact, one could argue that Clohessy's inaction was much, much worse, considering that Clohessy did not call the police even while he was a leader at a supposed victims' advocacy group, SNAP. Surely, no one more than Clohessy himself should have known better to call the police, as he often frequently lectures the Church to do. But he didn't.
The hypocrisy is glaring, and it has been over a decade since the media has even reported this alarming episode. Meanwhile, media outlets continue to give a Clohessy an open, challenge-free microphone to spew hate and criticism upon others who acted exactly as he did.
