Help Stop Fascism! sue cyber terrorist org. (english)
11 Aug 2003
Modified: 14 Aug 2003
Cyber terrorist organization KOBEHQ, in addition to harassing Arabs and Muslims online, has been targeting our website because of our opposition to their racism. Help us sue KOBEHQ.
KOBEHQ, a California based rightwing cyber terrorist organization that claims protection by the US Government, has been waging a cyber war against our website. This war includes death threats, libel, and false reports to law enforcement. We wish to take KOBEHQ to court and sue them for these activities. Please help us raise the funds to do this by purchasing an overpriced "support" bumper sticker. $25.00 of each purchase (our profit) will be used exclusively for funding a legal action against KOBEHQ. If you can manage to help us, please following this link:

Why are you posting on Boston IMC Stephen???? (english)

You said Boston IMC is a COINTELPRO operation did you not?

Boston IndyMedia Is Working for COINTELPRO
Author: Stephen DeVoy
For the past several months I've observed a pattern of abuse on Boston IndyMedia. For those of you unaware, I've been targeted by a COINTELPRO operation for more than a year now. The operation has cost me my job, forced me to move for the safety of my family, and made it difficult to run my anti-fascist and antiwar websites: Stop Fascism!, Break Your Chains, and Rational Anarchism.

The COINTELPRO group harassing me uses the name KOBE. They maintain a database of IP numbers of the victims they harass. They even provide an interface to their members for looking up IP addresses. A couple of months ago I posted a message anonymously on Boston IndyMedia. Within minutes a comment was made in the name of one KOBE XIAN, a member of KOBE, that from my IP address they had determined that I was Stephen DeVoy. Note, my IP address was only visible to the system administrators of Boston IndyMedia.

Had this been the only incident, I would have dismissed it as an improbable guess. However, a long chain of events confirms my suspicion. Not only does Boston IndyMedia delete posts that are critical of Israel, but Boston IndyMedia protects posts coming from members of the Free Republic. KOBE is associated with the Free Republic. Even more disturbing is the fact that Boston Police Special Operations members have been posting unimpeded on Boston Indy Media. The following is a proof of this accusation:

Please read the following post on Boston Indymedia:

This post starts off with a collection of photos I took at the antiwar event in Boston on March 29. As we've all seen, it is common practice to not blur the faces of protesters in pictures posted to IndyMedia. Immediately following my post, you see the beginning of a string of posts that I find very interesting. The faces of anarchists were blurred due to police harassment documented here. The most important comments, however, read as follows:

"Two signs from Saturday's 'Peace' march: "This is what a Feminist looks like" and "Bush needs a bitch slap." What's wrong with this picture?

Photos courtesy of our local phoney anachists who seemed more interested in taking photos of hot anti-war chicks then fighting the power.

One more thing: Why do you think the gestapo , blackshirt cops were more racially and sexually diverse then the mostly white well-to-do marchers?

Question the authority of your culture."

Is this an innocent post? Well, no. I can prove that it was posted by a member of Boston Police Special Operations, the same group that harassed anarchists at the march from which the photos were taken. Here's the proof:

Check out this post made to a journal for law enforcement professionals: http://www.guardroom.com/jjdaley/

Read the post under the heading "Cognitive Dissonance".

"Two signs from Saturday's 'Peace' march: "This is what a Feminist looks like" and "Bush needs a bitch slap." Photos courtesy of our local phoney anachists who seemed more interested in taking photos of hot anti-war chicks then fighting the power."

Now, note the following similarity between the posts. They are almost identical. Who posted this? Well, the man who posted this, John Daley, runs the following website:

The above link will take you to Boston Police Special Operations.

When I noticed this, I posted the following on Boston IndyMedia. Notice the comments:

http://www.boston.indymedia.org/front.php3?article_id=13440&group=webcas

Also, notice the same defamation used by the KOBE organization. For some reason they think my middle initial is "J." which it is not. Here's another post:

http://www.boston.indymedia.org/front.php3?article_id=13463&group=webcas

An import thing I can't show you, because Boston IndyMedia deleted it, is a post I made demonstrating who KOBE is. However, I can show you the original information about KOBE that I posted. Here is an article authored by KOBE explaining their organization:

http://dcregistry.com/forums/politics/messages/689.html

The above link is to an article by KOBE entitled: "Subversive/Dissident groups provide inroads for terrorists and spying within the United States of America." In this article, KOBE specifically targets my websites. Why did Boston IndyMedia delete this?

Please do not remove this article. People need to see this. Boston IndyMedia has not grown into the kind of outlet that other IndyMedias in cities with vibrant antiwar movements have grown into specifically because it is in the hands of the wrong people. For the sake of Bostonians, we need to increase awareness of this.

The ACLU would be interested, wouldn't they. (english)

Keep pushing it guys. You've got a law suit the size of the Earth coming to you.
ACLU would be interested indeed! (english)

The ACLU would be VERY interested in the fact that Stephen DeVoy was publishing photographs of employees of a computer store and asking for information about them.

How can we get the ACLU to act on behalf of the persicuted individual featured on the front page of www.stop-fascism.org ?

Now you are on my territory, you lousy traitor. You better not even fart in my direction. If get even a single whiff of shit coming from you, I will see to it that you are locked up for good. Law enforcement doesnt eat their own.

I could hardly believe it when I walked past your little nest. I thought a vagrant had started building another cardboard condo. Then when I saw what the stickers said, I realized that you were DeVoy in the flesh. I contacted KOBE, and the rest is still unfolding.

"Piss off KOBEHQ! Purchase from our store!"

Seems like this DeVoy guy has invented this weird paranoid delusion about "KOBE" as a cheap promotional ploy for his crappy bumperstickers.
