Starting in February of 2011 many of the committed volunteer advocates who joined the fast growing Gulf advocacy network began to leave. Two sisters – Deborah Dupre and Delia LaBarre – are responsible for the disintegration of a network that came together over the preceding 10 months. How did this happen? Why did it happen?
It began with a 3 hour special which was conducted on the Rense Radio Network entitled Voices of the Shattered Gulf. Both Dupre and LaBarre had significant roles in coordinating this unprecedented event. This is where the real problem began.
Deborah Dupre is a reporter for Examiner.com who has earned a reputation for labeling anyone she disagrees with. Should any individual who had a prominent place in any major environmental, health or other advocacy group in the Gulf cross her, she will use her writing platform to post articles of a highly defamatory nature. Not only does she literally make up stories out of thin air, but she maliciously embellishes them to vilify her targets.
Both Dupre and her sister have made it a policy that anyone who becomes an object of their scorn is accused of being an infiltrator, controlled opposition, a BP agent, COINTELPRO, or some other pejorative term. This journalistic tactic effectively destroys the individual’s reputation to the extent that no one will trust or work with them again.
The following article elaborates their modus operandi with some detail and is well worth reading for anyone who wants the inside story about why the Gulf movement collapsed so quickly. The Rense.com website for one removed all of the special boxes dedicated to covering the BP oil spill shortly after the aforementioned three hour program. Until that time, Rense.com covered this oil spill environmental disaster more than any other website on the internet.
BEWARE of Deborah Dupre and Delia LaBarre
