‘Obama-Lynching’ Facebook Page Hilariously Hacked By Liberal Trolls (IMAGES)
Hackers took over the right-wing Facebook page that called for lynching President Obama and hilarity ensued.
Last week, America the next Generation called for hanging President Obama and making the day of his killing a national holiday. Obama’s head was superimposed over that Saddam Hussein just before he was executed. After an outcry calling upon Facebook to take the page down and for the US Secret Service to investigate, page admins removed the offensive image. But what the page owners didn’t expect was to be hacked and taken over by left-wing trolls.
So the question is, what will Facebook do? They didn’t take down the offensive photo or punish the page that posted it because for some reason, making threats on the life of our President somehow doesn’t violate their ‘standards.’ Hacking, however, does. Of course, hacking a Facebook page isn’t nearly as bad as calling for lynching America’s first Black president. If Facebook takes action against the hackers and not those who posted the offensive material in the first place, it would prove how screwed up Facebook’s ‘standards’ are.
According to United States Code Title 18, Section 871, threatening the President’s life is a felony. Therefore, the Secret Service should do their job and charge the owners of the page. And while they’re at it, they can charge them with treason too. Also, Facebook should take the entire page down and ban the creators. Calling for hanging the legally elected President is not protected “free speech.”
The Internet is the new Wild West… and the stakes could not be greater.

Many Palestinians still carry around their neck the key to their homes in Palestine - homes that they were forced to leave and cannot return to.
Al Nakba is the name Palestinians give to 15th May, 1948 when the State of Israel established itself on the lands, homes and lives of the Palestinian people.
Al Nakba translates to “The Catastrophe”.
Al Nakba was the moment when the Palestinian people became a nation of refugees. 750,000 Palestinians were expelled from their homes and forced to live in refugee camps. Many who were unable to flee were massacred.
Al Nakba remains in the Palestinian consciousness as the time when their freedom was stolen and to this day it is yet to be returned.
Al Nakba is the soil in which many Palestinian stories are buried, and it is the aspiration of this project 1948 to bring some of these stories to the surface.
What has kept the Palestinians alive since Al Nakba is the dream of return to their land. It is their survival and determination that we also wish to celebrate.
This was last year’s project dedicated to the Palestinian Catastrophe.

The Slavery of the Invested
I laugh, even if my laughter has small traces of sadness. Most of those in my tribe are those who call themselves anarchists, rebels, and/or revolutionaries. Then, just weeks ago, many of these same “rebels” were saying, “Oh, no, the government is shutdown. We need to do something about it.” Those who normally call for the end of government are suddenly stressed when it is shut down? I’m amazed at how many live their lives immersed completely in their own hypocrisy… and I’ve been very busy in quite a few fights over this past week.
If I had to put a number to it, I’d say that at least 80% of Americans are invested in the government. That means they are in organizations, institutions, or companies that get funding or other support from the government — or, alternatively, they have at least one person (friend, family, or otherwise) who is significant in their lives, and that one person (or more) is supported by the government. And that investment has bought them out. These people are bought and paid for and, no, they very much do not want to stop the government.
It doesn’t matter how many bombs are dropped on innocent people, it doesn’t matter how massive and intrusive the spy campaigns are on any shore, it doesn’t matter how deeply the privacy of every human has been invaded, and it doesn’t matter how many innocent people are kidnapped and tortured and killed by the government. It doesn’t matter. People who are invested will find a “good reason” to excuse the government for the terrible atrocities it commits, because they have been bribed… and bribed well.
The only terrorists that ever existed are the ones who hold the thrones around the world, and those who stay in the shadows and whisper in the ears of the thrones.
So take your thirty silver.
But those coins are covered in blood, lovelies.
And you’ll never wash out the smell of blood.
This 3-minute short is more poignant, better constructed, and so much more funny than almost any 3-hours of programmed television. Mad thanks to BMFD for linking me up.
Vote “No Confidence”. Reboot the American Government.
Sign this petition [Here on WhiteHouse dot Gov], to add your voice to a vote of “No Confidence” in the 112th Congress. From the petition:
Around the world, we are seeing people in many countries rising up together in support of fixing the problems being caused by their government. When our country was begun, the option to change our government was granted and protected. However, this now seems impossible with the federal system today because it is so full of power struggles, in-fighting, bureaucratic red tape, corporate control, secret agendas & rulings that undermine our open democracy and many more problems.
In essence, it is time for us to clean house. We need a national vote about the entire federal level of government. A “No Confidence” vote by the citizens means that all those in power at the Federal level resign and we can vote for an entirely new group of Representatives, who will work only on restoring America.
"This is why some people should not be allowed to speak"? Disregarding the actual message, surely you know better than to entertain the notion of restricting ANY individual's fundamental freedom: freedom of speech. If you find that guy's message so flawed, then continue to counter it with more speech of your own, as you have been doing."The man who speaks to you of sacrifice is speaking of slaves and masters, and intends to be the master." - Ayn Rand
Oh, yes, I know much better. My comments were specifically inflammatory with an admixture of humor, and not literally suggestive outside of the text in bold. If a government representative or lobbying rep were to actually suggest a form of censorship along these lines, I’d be ranting about censorship instead of ignorance. Mad thanks for your comments, Anon.
And for anyone who’s missing the context of this conversation, here is the original post.
Welcome to America: “Land of the Free”
Remembering Egypt at the moment, and really hoping that Turkey can have an even more positive outcome.
Complete Internet Blackout in Egypt
By Curt Hopkins / January 27, 2011 3:45 PM
After blocking Twitter on Tuesday and, intermittently, Facebook and Google on Wednesday, the Egyptian government has upped the ante, throwing a complete Internet access block across the whole of the country. Additionally blocked are Blackberry service and SMS.
Reports are pouring in, many to Twitterers via landline, that the country has been “cut off” and is now a “black hole.”
Reports from Cairo, Alexandria and elsewhere in the country indicate the block is wholesale and countrywide.
CNN’s Ben Wedeman commented, “No internet, no SMS, what is next? Mobile phones and land lines? So much for stability” and asked “Will #Egypt totally cut communications with the outside world?”
That depends, I think, on whether the idea now is to disrupt communications between groups of protesters or to lay a blackout curtain across Egypt to mask a total crackdown. As many as eight protesters, three in Cairo and five in Suez, have been killed, along with one policeman. I think if landlines and mobile go, the question must become, is the Egyptian government planning a wholesale massacre? (AP has raw footage of security forces converging, then killing a protester. Please be warned. This is some vicious shit.)
Those in and outside of Egypt have pledged to keep as much in connection to one another using whichever avenues remain. This is one of those times, however, in which the presence of functioning traditional journalists will pick up from the citizens who had been reporting on the ground.
