NYC Indy has been hacked
29 Apr 2005
some right-wing nut has hacked NYC indy
Although I have stopped reading NYC Indy in recent months (due to the continuous hiding of posts by someone named "mountain"), it is nonetheless lamentable to see a screen saying that the "goons" have rooted NYC Indy.

The reason for this is said to be as follows:

"American Imperialism is non-existent. Our soldiers are dying over sees to give men, women, and children a taste of freedom and you call them imperialists. You are nothing but pigs. You are not against Bush you are against Republicans, you are against anyone who has a different opinion and way of thinking than you. Your box got rooted for lying to the American people."


One wonders about the brain capacity of self-styled "goons" and if they would still call it a "taste of freedom" if the town that they live in suddenly was "fallujahed."

All in all, however, I take the hacking of NYC Indy as a good sign. I believe it means that the truth, that is to say the absolute criminality of Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Feith, Perle, et al, and their flagrant piracy is finally becoming so widely understood that brazen attacks against outposts of freedom of speech (such as NYC Indy) are being launched.

Do you suppose they will do the same for C-SPAN, after they broadcast Griffin's 9-11 speech tomorrow (Sat Apr 30th, 10:30am)? Who knows?

But let us be thankful that the Indypendent is published and distributed, that the flourishing Indy sites around the world are continuing the good fight, and let us be strong in hound-dogging the rotten scum who are bankrupting our nation (both financially and morally). When the indictments are handed down, then let the "goons" come forward to defend their heroes such as Tom DeLay and W...

hmmmph.

They Know the Jig is Up

Saw the Griffin talk this morning. Great stuff. To us anti-"Al Qaeda conspiracy theory" types there was nothing new in the talk, but Griffin is so plain-speaking and sober a guy that undoubtedly he will manage to wake up a lot of the electronic sheep out there.

You are absolutely right, Mr.(Ms.?) Gromit, that the goons are starting to get reeeeeal nervous as it slowly dawns on them that they are the ones who have sided with those who hate America, and the only way out for them is to pile lie upon lie, filling the gaping cracks with mortar of bullshit.

As the truth further permeates the public consciousness, they will no doubt realize that harassing indymedia sites in order to stifle their sworn enemy, freedom of speech and assembly, will never have the effect they desire. They think they're fighting groups of people or individuals, when in fact they are fighting the truth.

That they think they can win is testament to their ignorance of the nature of the new world we all inhabit, one in which no amount of intimidation, coercion, deception or destruction will succeed in thwarting the collective will of the people to pursue truth and justice. Make no mistake, they are afraid--and in due time they will be desperate. Shortly thereafter they will be exposed and brought to justice.

Los pueblos unidos jamas serĂ¡n vencidos. Hasta la victoria--SIEMPRE.

most of the g00ns' rather repulsive content is on g00ns-forum.com, which is hosted by liquidweb.com. i'm sure they'd love to take your comments @ 800-580-4985. the hacker himself, who goes by the name of "clorox", and formerly "elac", is known to us. he's a 21-year old computer science major at collin county community college in plano, texas, and the creator of rightwingextremist.net. his name is brett chance. you can contact the director of telecommunications for his school, brian boring, @ 972-548-6644. have at it, folks.

I work at NYC Indymedia. There are three reasons we delete posts.
1) It's right-wing spam. We don't want our readers to have to wade through acres of "fuck you indymedia faggots" garbage to get to the real stuff.
2) It contains personal attacks on Indymedia staffers.
3) It's conspiracy spam. We don't want our readers to wade through acres of babble about how the international homosexual Jewish Illuminati set off explosives in the World Trade Center through broadcasts from a UFO received by silicon chips implanted in the teeth of mind-controlled molested children.
Gosh, there are no conspiracies?

Thank you New Yorker for letting us know that conspiracy is not part of politics. I guess there was no CIA involvement in the murder of Allende or subversion of Arbenz or the Bay of Pigs or Iran/Contra! Thanks for clearing it up.

There's a difference between legitimate investigative journalism probing Iran-contra, the Allende murder, etc., and the belief (which mainly comes out of the far right and anti-Semitism, though a lot of leftists buy into it) that everything that happens in the world is run by a satanic/CIA cabal, that even the "opposition" is controlled. I'm sick of dealing with people who are too fucking stupid and dogmatic to tell the difference.

There is a big difference between genuine investigative journalism (that sometimes investigates criminal conspiracies) which is back up by hard facts and documentation on the one hand, and (on the other hand) amateurish pop criminology (which almost always feeds into a fantasy that some scapegoatable Other has controlled every little detail in the history of the world) "backed up" by speculation and faith. The only way the latter can be right is by accident.
