Some of you may remember awhile back, when someone on twitter, named @RediscovrngRyan “pre-tweeted” @RealtinConnor with the following:

@RealtinConnor immediately followed the tweet with this.

Anyone who uses TweetDeck for more than one Twitter account, knows it’s an easy mistake to make.  For context, here’s a screen-shot of part of the conversation as it happened. As always, the most recent tweet is at the top, so start reading from the bottom!

Why am I posting this?  Well, one of @RealtinConnor’s favorite things to do, is to call pro-lifers’ dishonest.  For someone who’s twitter profile is a complete façade, he’s got no right to call anyone else dishonest. 

@RealtinConnor, as we all know, is pretty slick when it comes to twisting others words, but as with the tweet above, he does make mistakes.  He’s left a trail to who he really is, for those (like me) who choose to follow it.  So let’s follow that trail, shall we?

@RediscovrngRyan locked his twitter account within hours of the tweet mishap.  Surprised? Me neither.  But his profile, as seen below, does link to his blog.


So let’s go to his blog.


I left the picture of Colby, cause he’s really cute. I’ve always had a soft spot for beagles!  As cute as he is, the point of the pic is the twitter-feed on the right.

A few weeks ago, it looked a little different.


You see the tweet about the airport?  Yeah, I did too!  The link goes here.


Let’s go further, clicking on his picture.


Do you see the social media links?  Yeah, I did too.  Of course the twitter link goes to his twitter account.  So lets look at the Facebook link instead, shall we?


Ryan Cooley has 30 friends on Facebook.  So I clicked on a few of his friends pictures, and discovered this one.


Note that Laura is in a relationship with Ryan Cooley. Sweet!  Then note where Laura is from. North Carolina.  So now we know how Ryan errrr @RealtinConnor, came up with NC as where he lives.  We all know Ryan is a staunch pro-choice, pro-gay, feminist kind of guy.  Well, I researched Laura and honestly didn’t find much.  Except for this, that is.


As if the program title doesn’t tell us enough, her contribution is titled: “The Woman in Captivity: Female Bodies in the Creation of America”.  This leaves no doubt as to the extent of her views on feminist issues.

And I did mention pro-gay, so let’s look at that.  This is a picture of her little boy, at a gay pride parade in Montreal.


I don’t have a problem with people being gay.  I have a problem with parents trying to teach small children that being gay is normal, and should be accepted as such.

So back to Ryan. What have I found out his employment (he purports to be a doctor, a PhD)?  NOTHING!!!  I did find a professor, a real PhD, that I suppose could be his dad.


And… I found Kieran Cooley, who is a naturopathic doctor.


The hat and shirt pictured below, were birthday gifts to Ryan from Kieran.


Funny how a beard and a hat can change what someone looks like, isn’t it?  What is consistent, is the watch on the left wrist, and the chain bracelet on the right.

This is most likely where he sits while spamming pro-lifers.



What I’ve found out about Ryan, is that he’s extremely emotional, to a fault.  His relationship with Laura is on and off.  He questions the need for 3rd party intervention, a counselor.  I haven’t seen any mention of he and Laura being married, or of him being the father of her son. I’ve seen no mention of an adopted child, unless he counts a rescued bunny rabbit named Fuzzbutt as a child.  He’s not from North Carolina, he’s from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.  And I’m guessing he’s not a doctor at all, though he pretends to be one on twitter.

So the next time you debate @RealtinConnor on twitter, you’ll be armed with knowledge about who he really is, not who he purports to be.
