In the Best Interest of Sean Goldman?: United States Righteousness and the Two Minute Hate Against His Brazilian Family

I cannot know whether the following comments are made my U.S. citizens or Brazilians. I do know that most comments were in support of David Goldman. However, the hatred that I have seen against the Brazilian family and against Brazil are terrifying.

Nine year olds can read. They surf the net, get on youtube, etc. It is a wonderful age of exploration. It is shameful that people are engaging in a hate campaign against the only life Sean Goldman may know. Only last year, this boy lost his mother. He leaves behind a baby sister and people who have cared for him for 5 years.

It is not true that kids are resilient. This is a feelgood statement that adults use to continue to manipulate children in their own self interest. If kids are so resilient, why are there increasing millions of adults of in counseling and on psychotropic medications?

(emphasis mine)

...This so called beloved mother, abducted him, took him away from his father and country. His grandmother assisted her daughter in breaking the law. Now you want the father to play as if none of things happened. YOU MUST BE JOKING!…. I hope they NEVER get to lay eyes on him again. Real loving mothers don’t take their children away from good fathers. Women like you make me sick!--Posted by: johnnywho | Thursday, December 24, 2009 at 10:09 PM

...As for Sean’s selfish relatives from Brazil — shame on you!!! The grandmother had the NERVE to say it was a “heinous crime” to take Sean on Christmas Day. They also said it was “inhumane” to not resolve their visitation rights before David and Sean left Brazil. Are you kidding me!!! After everything they did to destroy David’s relationship with Sean by blocking phone calls and denying visits. These people have some nerve. I hope they are suffering horribly.--Posted by: Kathy | Friday, December 25, 2009 at 10:34 AM

I hope Sean’s grandmother will suffer a heart attack!She is a demon in disguise!and let her soul be barbequed in satan’s fire!!!!!!!--Posted by: michelle | Friday, December 25, 2009 at 1:39 PM

I mean Sean’s maternal grandmother--Posted by: michelle | Friday, December 25, 2009 at 1:41 PM

Ahrean i couldn’t have said it better. You articulated my thoughts–Gabie, you have poor insight and judgement- The child was kidnapped or he wouldn’t be a stranger to his dad!!!!
Ted, I see a happy ending b/c there is so much love for this child by his REAL FAMILY. I think his step father should be shot and his grandmother horse whipped–They are both ignorant and w/o a heart. They don’t deserve to ever see this child again–However, if it will help with adjustments let her visit BUT she would have to have boundaries and if she crossed them–OUT!!!!--Posted by: hopeful for justice | Friday, December 25, 2009 at 5:26 PM

I will pray for the death of that horrible grandmother. When she is dead only then will Sean and David be finally free!--Posted by: Maria | Saturday, December 26, 2009 at 1:50 PM

The grandmother Bianchi is now getting a life sentence for pain and suffering for a 5 yr crime. As for Sean missing his 1 yr old sister. He hasnt really develop a relationships with a baby and will not have a long term effect on him mentally. In 5 years, he will be a happy go lucky American kid with lots of friends and family that love him. By then, David, may let the GrandB*tch come and see Sean.--Posted by: Quin | Saturday, December 26, 2009 at 2:36 PM

I believe in KARMA so I think that Sean's mother died for a reason. God took her so David can have a chance with his son. I'm not sure if she's in hell right now for her crime on earth, but I'm positive that she's not in heaven for what she did to David Goldman and her son. Best of luck to David and his son.

I am so glad to see the Goldmans reunited, this is the way it should have been 5 years ago. The Brazilian family are a bunch of thugs. Every Brazilian that I have been acquainted with including those that I employed have a strong knack for lying and stealing. It seems to be a cultural trait, and they tell lies with such a straight face. I am sure that is what the Brazilian wife did to Mr. Goldman and probably right under his nose because he does not understand or speak Portuguese. She probably worked out all the details of the abduction well ahead of time with her parents and then just played out a role until they landed in Brazil with the boy and then made to call that would change David Goldman's life forever. Disgusting, glad she is dead. What goes around eventually comes around. I guess God realized she had created enough trouble on earth and called her back pronto and sent her straight to hell where she belongs.

The **** who took this child away from his father to marry some scumbag lawyer got just what she deserved. I think the Brazilian government is run by a bunch of fools who dragged this thing out for years. I would like to remind everyone to boycott the Olympics in Brazil as a justified payback. Three cheers to Hillary Clinton for sending a message to this woeful Third World country. The threat of sanctions is a good tool to use on these people and Hillary got the message across to them.

There are too many missing parts to this story and yet every claims to know every piece. This is a tragedy in that the one person we need to hear from is dead and yet this is the reason that this story is so opportunistic. People can create whatever fantasy they like. They can demonize Brazil, they can paint happy endings. None of this matters rights now. In the end Sean Goldman will tell his own story.

I will close with some voices of dissent, maybe, reason (from the Orlando Sentinel article):

What are you all idiots? You have no idea if Goldman is a good father or a bad one; a good person or a bad one. Just because he is good looking does not guarantee either. In fact, many good looking men are jerks. As for his ex wife, what she did was not cool but we don’t know the circumstances that led to such a violent split….and we don’t know what kind of father or husband he was. After all, neither David Goldman nor his father give off the warm fuzzies. Finally, the most important aspect of this transaction is the boy, Sean. His mother uprooted him violently 5 years ago and moved him to Brazil. Now his father is doing the same……given very little consideration to the boy’s psychological well being. Goldman couldn’t wait until after XMAS so the boy could open his presents and give his chief providers of 5 years some time to deal with the impending separation? Of course not….it has become an eye for an eye; a tooth for a tooth…….none of which benefits the boy. Frankly, I don’t see a happy ending to this mess even htough Sean is back with his father. Sorry.--Posted by: ted | Friday, December 25, 2009 at 4:08 PM

Have you thought about how much this kid is gonna suffer in the USA living with an unknown men / father that he doesn’t even know well?
Seriously!!!! David Goldman is a coward to take this boy away from his real family!!!--Posted by: Gabie | Friday, December 25, 2009 at 4:43 PM
