A men’s rights activist who has been convicted of stalking has been slammed after calling domestic abuse victim Hannah Clarke a ‘perpetrator’. 

Adam James, also known as Adam Benjamin Cocks, claimed Ms Clarke extorted her husband Rowan Baxter days before he doused her and their three children in petrol and set them alight at Camp Hill, Queensland, in February 2020. 

Mr James made the inflammatory comments to his Facebook page ‘Don’t Believe All Women’, which he set up to demonstrate ‘that some women tell lies and we should be careful when cons.’

Social media users have been quick to slam the accusations as ‘disgusting’ and ‘baseless’ while complaints have been lodged to Facebook to take down the post.

‘What is little known, as it’s been concealed by the family, is that Hannah was extorting Rowan in the days leading up to the deaths,’ Mr James wrote.

‘What is known is that she had posted on his facebook profile publicly that she was going to ‘take his kids and shut down his business’. Considering the bias in the court system she certainly would have easily succeeded at that.’

Mr James claimed the coercive control laws were engineered against men. 

‘If Rowan wanted to choose to address Hannah’s threats legally and nonviolently how could he have done this?’ he wrote.

‘If he went to the police he would’ve been turned away (70% of men are turned away when reporting a crime committed by a woman).

‘Most disturbingly, her choice to extort him and what is an extreme example of coercive control by her, has now resulted in new laws that will further disempower men and give greater control to heterosexual women who use coercive control.’

Mr James finished the post by calling Ms Clarke a perpetrator: ‘We need to raise awareness of female perpetrators of coercive control like Hannah Clarke.’

‘We need to have gender neutral laws so men have the ability to address women who are being abusive lawfully and nonviolently.’

Domestic violence advocate Rachael has lodged complaint with Facebook demanding the social media giant remove the ‘baseless’ post.

‘It is absolutely disgusting. There is not a shred of evidence to substantiate his claims,’ she said.

The pleas have fallen on deaf ears with Rachael revealing Facebook has refused to take down the post. 

‘We have complained to Facebook, we have reported it as unsubstantiated rubbish, and we all did it and we all got the same message back from Facebook that it did not go against their community guidelines. We asked for a review and it still stood,’ she said.  

A spokesperson for Meta, Facebook’s parent company, said the post did not breach community standards.

‘We’ve reviewed this post and found it doesn’t breach our policies. We work hard to find the right balance between allowing people to debate current and topical social issues, while ensuring we protect our community and minimise harms on our platforms,’ she said.

‘We’ve shared this content with our third party fact checkers who review content that doesn’t breach our policies but may be deemed false or misleading.’

Mr James also defended his claims and doubled down on his accusation that Ms Clarke was a ‘perpetrator’.

‘Domestic violence is bidirectional,’ he told The Daily Telegraph. ‘We know for sure that Rowan was a perpetrator. What has been concealed is that Hannah was also a perpetrator.

‘The horrible irony is Hannah was guilty of coercive control.’

Daily Mail Australia contacted Mr James for comment.
