Censorship


A representative from Michigan (Candice Miller (R)) wants Eric Holder to shut down wikileaks and calls Assange a terrorist:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r6JdQWli8jQ

I sometimes wonder where the sanity of my fellow American citizens lies. Lately, it seems like less and less people are sane. In what world does the word terrorist come to mean the ever changing definitions it has become?

So far, terrorist has encompassed everyone who disagrees with a current administration, someone who doesnt want to pose for nudie pics in the airports, someone who is too modest to allow a stranger to feel them up, someone who reads conspiracy theories, and now wikileaks.

When will this idiocy end?

Anyway, Ive been reading thru comments made pertaining to the most recent wikileaks controversy. And Im completely flabbergasted by what I see.  Whats even more perplexing is that this isnt just coming from one party……its an equal opportunity terror watch!

It is blazingly apparent that our government (and military in some instances) are not doing what we are told they are doing. Prior to this more recent wikileaks controversy, a video of several military soldiers were filmed shooting at innocent people in the middle east. As a private citizen, I was appalled to see our United States military using innocent people as target practice. How many of us knew THAT was happening? Not me.

And now, a PFC has joined ‘forces’ with Assange to release additional documents that apparently bring light to more wrong-doings and what-have-you……and what is the message our representatives want us to know? Its not that our government should be sorry for doing wrong…..its that the people involved with exposing this are terrorists.

Huh?

Didnt our President campaign on the issue of TRANSPARENCY? How is it transparent to demand the administration to take down this website?

You DO realize that we wouldnt need a site like wikileaks if our mainstream media (news outlets) really did some research.

 

Yesterday I was plagerized for the first time.

Without giving any more attention to the blog that did this, I responded by tweeting to that person, as well as some of my friends attempted to inform this ‘blogger’ what plagerism is, and the blog in question was removed.

This thief then attempted to explain to me, that what I read wasnt plagerism….but I certainly beg to differ.

So, heres what I consider plagerism:

* If my blog post is copy-pasted (I dont care if you claim its an RSS feed) and I have to click “Read more” to see my original post, its plagerism.

* If your blog features other peoples work, without trackbacks to the orginal blog, its plagerism.

* If you do not post on your site, that you have used RSS feeds to create your content, its plagerism.

Im glad that people outside of my circle of friends have read my blog. That is appreciated. To say otherwise, would be a lie. However, if you like what Ive posted, post a comment….do not take my content/my opinions and give the impression that they are your own.

If you disagree with what Ive posted, post a comment as well. Or, better yet, post your own ‘take’ and include a link to my original post (this creates a trackback).

Its called courtesy and it shows that you have journalistic integrity.

I should not have to call you out on twitter and facebook in order to show you what this means.

And honestly, your claim of featuring my RSS feed on your blog is bulloney. If this was so, this would not be the first time I have seen my blog title other than on my own site.

Your other claim that you were ‘only trying to give my blog attention’ is also a load of crap. My ego is not that big that I dont care where my blog is copied to – and that I dont care as long as its read.

If you cant abide by simple common courtesy, Id rather not have you read OR share my take.

And Im sure the reason you cannot begin to understand why Im angry about this, is that NONE of what you posted on what you call your blog is original content that you have worked hard on!

So theres this church in Florida that decided it would be appropriate to Burn the Quaran on September 11, 2010. Its supposed to be in memory of the victims of the attack that killed thousands on 9/11. The churchs pastor Terry Jones has appeared on CNN (See the 4 minute video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=05t17RNjGYA&feature=player_embedded )

It amazes me that the first impression I have of this pastor is his statement that he would burn the Quaran because he doesnt believe that its sacred. In the same minute, the pastor states they have nothing against Muslims and that they are free to worship….but honestly….does he think that even makes sense? How can you burn what that faith beleives to be their sacred text and then in the same breath claim to welcome them?

I think Rick Sanchez says it best….Why counter hate with hate?

In discussing this upcoming event with some of my friends, I have not heard one opinion on the side of this pastor. Not ONE! What does that say to you?

Ive only talked to a few self-described skeptics/atheists and even they are perplexed about why someone would do this. While I am generalizing their comments, the gist is that this will only lead to more issues between Christians and Muslims. And I have to say, that I agree.

A few weeks ago, Anne Rice (author) posted that she was leaving organized religion. Many took this to beleive that she was leaving Christianity in general. After a few ‘updates’ it was later revealed that she wasnt going back to her atheistic beliefs, she was just leaving the hate that surrounds the Christian faith (ie hate towards gays, certain politicians, etc) After going thru those posts and seeing the above posted youtube video, I can definately see where she is coming from. (See this for more specific info: http://www.jesusneedsnewpr.net/anne-rice-announces-on-facebook-that-shes-quitting-christianity/ )

It amazes me how many Christians cant see how some of the more radical faiths could hate us so much. But, in the same breath, they spew off all this vile basically stating how much they hate those people. How is their hate different from that?

On Friday, July 23rds Alex Jones show, Jesse Ventura was a guest. Jesse spoke to Alex about supposed government harrassment of his ‘Conspiracy Theory’ television show.

After listening to both parts, I have concluded that he was NOT harrassed. See for yourself below:

Part 1 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hWVhrwSQlZo&feature=player_embedded
Part 2 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eQXok5QDSjA&feature=player_embedded

In case you dont want to sit thru this, heres a quick recap:
Jesse came on the show and claimed that the government told him he wasnt allowed to film at JFKs eternal flame. (He was doing a show on the JFK Conspiracy Theories) He contacted his representative Michele Bachman after being turned down because of the subject matter of the show. To make a long story short, Jesse Ventura filmed there anyway (It is not entirely made clear if he did it without permission or after his representative assisted with the matter.)

Jesse Ventura then gave the persons name who denied his request as well as his phone number to Alexs viewers. (tacky much?) Jesse claims that his taxes pay these peoples salary (uh, sorry Jesse, but dont you live in Mexico now?) He also asks that all ‘true’ Americans call this man and give them a piece of their minds….

Honestly, stating that you were harrassed just because you were denied your request, does not equal government harrassment. Just because you were in a branch of the service, a mayor and a governor does NOT entitle you to anything. Making claims of this nature to the viewers of Alex Jones’ show and asking them to call this man is not the way to solve your supposed problem.

The second you admitted that you filmed your shot, you lost any claim of harrassment.

Yep….its true. It seems as if many Alex Jones fans (or possibly just those in Jones’ circle) spammed google with search terms “Obama Deception Censored” pretty much consistently in order to produce a high rank of the term on the search engines site.

In case you need a shorter recap, Jones announced Friday that he wanted to move the ranking of his film to number one (remember, hes got a HUGE ego) and then went absolutely ballistic when google removed the film (as well as another of Jones’ films). This obviously incensed him and his followers.

The film did not disappear off the internet….just a copy of it on youtube that wasnt split into a dozen clips, mind you. It is also interesting to note that google/youtube didnt remove copies from Alex Jones OWN youtube channel. Alex Jones also has his OWN website where you can watch and even burn copies of both films in question.

Yesterday, I watched Alex’s Sunday show….well, I wouldnt exactly call it a show…..Id call it a full out temper tantrum.

So, today I find out that google completely caved…..They restored the films AND the view count. I can understand that google doesnt want bad publicity, but honestly???

Any parent can tell you what will happen to the child who gets their way when they throw a tempter tantrum….

I just cant wait to hear what Alex has to say –uh, scream, about this one! (yea, that WAS sarcasm)

So I watched Sundays SPECIAL EDITION show of Alex Jones….(link to all 8 parts here: http://dprogram.net/2010/07/18/42554/ )

Wow! I knew Alex had an ego issue but wow….does he ever show it off on this show!!! In part 1 AND part 2 he goes on and on about how the White House youtube account only averages a few hundred views for each video and that he posts a video and he gets a half a million views in a week….I dont even care if that is true, it shows that he is selfish and only cares about getting hits on his movies.

Honestly, does he get a cut according to hits? Cuz, otherwise, why would he care about this so much? Its not like you cant watch the film on other accounts.

In part 2, Alex completely loses it….and shows that he is indeed a complete nutjob. He screams so loud that you almost see a vein pop out of his head. This type of behavior doesnt do anything for any cause he is a part of. It just prooves that he is insane….

In part 4, same deal….Alex is still insane…but near the middle of the clip, he starts taking calls from obvious Jones worshippers. Im sorry, but in the REAL world, Alex isnt bigger than Hannity or Olbermann…..

I think its almost laughable that he just cant get beyond the fact that his film isnt number one anymore. And then he has the audacity to say that the government is gonna turn off or censor the internet because of HIM!!!! Sorry dude, but you arent the first conspiracy theorist online. And, honestly, youre not the best conspiracy theorist out there either…Yea, okay Alex – its ALL gonna happen because of you….alright….

Its a good thing Alex is in Texas….no other state would contain his ego….

Yea, I said it….

So last week someone yanked Alex Jones’ facebook page and now this week, we got a youtube hack?

This article popped up on my facebook stream

http://www.infowars.com/censorship-alert-obama-deception-illegally-removed-from-you-tube/

Yea, I read it….and the VERY first thought I had was…..Did Alex Jones orchestrate this hack? Hes been ‘fighting’ with google over his movies for about what….6 months or so over his movie being blocked from being purchased? Hes had several of his videos removed from youtube because of supposed hate speech….and now this?

So, how does a film thats been available on a gazillion sites for over a year NOW get hacked? This film has had over 6 million views on the youtube account that is mentioned….and NOW all of a sudden there is an issue? I guess the account holder got that tip off right in the nick of time, huh?

So Friday, Alex wanted everyone to make Obama Deception appear at the top of every search site….and well…..it is apparent that someone somewhere was paying attention….

Call me the conspiracy theorist I am because it is my belief that someone in Jones circle did this in order to create some type of hysteria.
