Who is @GodsWordIsLaw?
We all know him as the most rabidly homophobic hate spewing lunatic on Twitter, but just who is @GodsWordIsLaw? Thanks to a bit of digging by fellow twitter users a possible picture of Keith is starting to emerge. First, let’s go back to the late 90s…..
If you’ve clicked ‘play’ you’re now listening to ‘Gun Control IS Racist’ by Rocco Gotti (aka Pat Spearman) and Don Kennedy (aka Keith A Roberts). Yup, Keith was involved in a vanity published rap record back at the tail end of the Twentieth Century! Keith and Pat, with a little money behind them from their deodorant company, CORAD, hired a studio in St Paul, Minnesota, and paid Shoanna Zealand to front the project (after all, can’t have a rap act fronted by two middle class white business men!). Pat even got as far as being interviewed by Bill Maher, and you can read about that encounter, and more about the record (including a mediafire link to the whole album!) here. An archived copy of the label page for the release is here. There’s another article about CORAD Records here, with some amusingly inept quotes from Keith.
Of course, it’s entirely possible that this Keith Roberts and the Keith Roberts who tweets as @GodsWordIsLaw are two totally different people, and if that’s the case, and the real Keith (ie NOT the froth mouthed maniac on Twitter) finds this page, I request that he leaves a comment, and I’ll immediately correct the article – I don’t want the wrong person being tarred with this particularly unpleasant brush!
Digging a little further, it seems that Keith’s political donations match what we’d expect from both CORAD Keith, and @GodsWordIsLaw Keith, as we see on this page if we search for Keith Roberts of White Bear Lake, MN – donations to the Republican party. It’s here that we find the clearest link between Keith Roberts of CORAD and Keith Roberts of @GodsWordIsLaw, as our Keith used to Tweet from the (now closed) @MBachmann4Pres Twitter account.
Are they the same person? Who knows. It seems entirely possible that they are, and, as I’ve said, if they’re not I’ll be gladly corrected, and make sure that an innocent party isn’t unfairly linked to the insanity of @GodsWordIsLaw. If they ARE the same person, then there’s a lesson here – no one is truly anonymous on the internet.
