By now you should all be familiar with the movie 13 Hours. A movie that was based on the contractors and military personnel supposedly left for dead in Benghazi. And I for one have to say it was a pretty entertaining movie (it was good) and let's not forget that Hollywood does have the tendency to make things bigger than what they really truly are. This is not to be taken lightly, because like war, media has the power to shape, mold and sway people's ideas, perceptions and opinions in either a positive or negative direction in regards to any person, event and or phenomenon.
With that being said, let us now meet John Tiegen Who I suspect is suffering from some sort of mental pathology that is deteriorating his mental health. The reason why this is so alarming is because we recently just had one of my biggest criticizers who unjustly criticized me (Bob Owens of bearingarms.com) who committed suicide roughly 30 days ago. Link to that article can be found here:
My biggest concern is that we are headed down that same path again with John Tiegen. But this time the Gun Game is in an even greater risk of losing of one of its own than Bob Owens. And my hypothesis is supported by the fact that John Tiegen has been exposed to combat. This is Apartment because according to the study conducted by the Veterans Affairs commonly referred to as the VA, we lose roughly 20 military veterans to suicide every single day. The link to that article can be found below:
Now many of you may be asking yourself, what does this have to do with John Tiegen and how is his mental health at risk? It has everything to do with John Tiegen because he is may be possibly displaying the same actions and symptoms of deteriorating mental health as Bob Owens. One way I say he is possibly walking down the same path of committing suicide is because just like Bob Owens he is engaging in the unhealthy practice of making unauthorized videos using footage of me in the attempt to discredit me in an effort to boost his own self-esteem and self-confidence so that he can make himself look better than he really is.
This says a lot not only about the character but the mental condition or mental state of John Tiegen. Why? Because there's a lot to be said about the mental state of an individual who engages in the practice of putting other people down in an effort to obtain self-gratification, and or putting other people down in an effort to boost their own self-esteem, and or by engaging in pathological behavior in which they get joy out of viewing people misfortunes, pain or misery.
John Tiegen in the middle
In short, what I'm trying to simply convey is that it is imperative that someone intervene the behalf of John Tiegen because these are some of the behaviors and social pathologies that Bob Owens exhibited that ultimately led to his premature demise. I want you to know that when something like this occurs again it will yet again have a trickle-down effect. Meaning: families are negatively affected friends are negatively affected, suicide statistics on military veterans go up and ultimately the Gun Game is negatively affected. This is a “lose, lose, lose” situation.
Another thing that I want to address is narcissism. Narcissism and narcissistic behavior runs rampant throughout the Gun Game! We must ask ourselves at what point will we continue to allow such behavior to persist until it ultimately negatively affects either someone or the entire Gun Game as a whole? Now for those of you who are not familiar with what narcissism is a simple Google search would defined it as:
"Extreme selfishness, with a grandiose view of one's own talents and a craving for admiration, as characterizing a personality type."
This is tied to the above point I made in regards to John Tiegen's actual behavior. Not only would I ask:
"Who are you to put someone else down in an effort to make yourself feel and or look good?" I would also ask:
"What kind of admiration are you seeking to gain from onlookers when you engage in such destructive behavior in which you maliciously seek to damage, disrupt and or put in jeopardy someone's credibility, character, mental stability and or livelihood by engaging in the selfish and tedious act of constructing a video about a man you have never met in the early hours of the morning (2:50 am)?"
My dear sir John Tiegen you are a grown ass man that should be in bed with your wife/significant other but yet and still your ass is up early in the morning thinking about another man you have never met. I for one sincerely hope you’re not engaging in the act of masturbating to my pretty face. It is my position without moving onto my third point that you should be ashamed of yourself. Three words should come to mind when you look in the mirror:
Neurosis. When it comes to this mental pathology even though it is no longer widely used it still applies to a John Tiegen in this case. For those that did not get a chance to read the Vodalogic article on this mental health issue it can be found here:
Neurosis can be defined as:
"a relatively mild mental illness that is not caused by organic disease, involving symptoms of stress (depression, anxiety, obsessive behavior, hypochondria) but not a radical loss of touch with reality."
And when it comes to John Tiegen it appears to me that he is exhibiting some signs of anxiety and some possible obsessive disorder. I can say this because he has in fact fell into believing the unwarranted rumor of my training practices without showing any proof upon claim that a VODA Client has been hurt or defrauded in any way, shape or form.
John Tiegen has also exhibited signs of obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) in the fact that he took the time to engage in the production and publishing of a deformation video regarding me at 2:50 am on a Sunday morning when he should have been with people or the one he loves him most.
You know, at this point in the Gun Game I think that it is a very sad state of affairs that we are in. And anyone who knows me knows that I pretty much like the mind my own business and I do not like to disrespect or talk negatively about people. And this article will reflect this position. But I will say this, John Tiegen, you are not looking too good right now, and every VODA client knows that it doesn't matter how you will shoot or what your status is in the military or Law Enforcement community.
I am and will forever be more concerned about a Shooters cognition than anything. Do us all a favor john, more importantly do your family a favor John and get some help dog. See someone, talk out your frustrations with them. It's not a crime to seek help the crime lies in knowing your suffering or struggling with something and choosing not to do anything about it (intent).
