@RealAlexJones, @Infowars call for violence and tyranny if #DeepState removes #Trump. #DueProcess #NDAA

“Due process” is defined as fair treatment through the normal judicial system, especially as a citizen’s entitlement.

Without due process, you have a judicial system which works for the government, not the people.

With a judicial system which works for the government instead of the people, you have tyranny.

So Alex Jones’ “solution” to an attempted deep state overthrow of Trump is to arrest people and strip them of their due process rights? Maybe that’s why Trump reauthorized the NDAA which indeed does violate the due process rights of detainees.

Has #VinceMcMahon created an acquisition company to buy #ImpactWrestling and/or #RingOfHonor? #AlphaEntertainment #XFL

The popular rumor of McMahon creating Alpha Entertainment is a rumored revival of his failed XFL professional football league. I can see why that is rumored, considering that NFL attendance figures and TV ratings are in freefalls.

However, I don’t think he is thinking about bring back the XFL.

In 1996, the WWF sued WCW because WCW debuted Scott Hall and Kevin Nash and implied that the WWF was invading WCW. WCW settled out of court with the WWF, and part of the settlement included an agreement that if WCW were to be put up for sale, the WWF would be first in line to buy WCW.

In 2000, amid WCW’s dwindling TV ratings and attendance figures, as well as surmounting financial losses, the WWF created a subsidiary named the W Acquisition Company. In 2001, the WWF bought WCW and merged it with its W Acquisition Company to create WCW, Inc., which is used to this day by the now-WWE as a holder of all WCW properties including WCW’s tape library.

Currently, Impact Wrestling is struggling for money and ratings. There is a possibility that Anthem Entertainment may want to sell Impact to cut their losses. (It’s rumored that ever since they acquired Impact, Anthem has been bleeding money.) So could Vince be preparing to buy Impact from Anthem?

Also, Ring of Honor has been dealing with financial problems for several years. It is currently owned by the Sinclair Broadcasting Group which owns numerous television stations throughout the United States. If SBG ever takes a financial hit (and this is a huge possibility in the ever-changing TV market), they could look to sell off properties which are not making them money. So if SBG needs to make some money, they could look to sell ROH.

So could Alpha Entertainment actually be an acquisition company with the purpose of using it to buy Impact Wrestling and Ring of Honor? I think that’s a greater possibility than the XFL being revived.

@Infowars allows commenters to use #AntiSemitic slurs against #Jewish lawyer @LisaBloom. #Infowars #AlexJones #LisaBloom #Trump

A collection of comments from this “article”:

ahh, I wonder how many more of these joos will come out of the woodwork. They say they are a minority, but you can’t live a day in your life without listening to hundreds of these supremacist shysters and their diarrhoea.

…and at the instigation of a Jewish lawyer.

Lisa Bloom – Jew

Jewish parasites have been trashing civilizations for thousands
of years. They won’t stop.

Just another greedy Jewess like her mother. No moral compass or shame, add them to the other tribe members in the blue party using the blue star of Remphan as an icon and relentlessly pushing their agenda against the President. Lying is how they operate, it is in their oral holy book as the right thing to do. It is as natural to them as breathing.

Jews, what can you say. They would slice your stomach open if they thought you swallowed a nickel.

@SPLC implies that #AnimalRightsActivists are #HateCriminals. #NIO #NegotiationIsOver #HateGroup. #SPLC #FuckTheSPLC

Comment: Veganism and animal rights threatens the establishment, and because of that, the Southern Poverty Law Center has lumped in animal rights activists with white supremacists, KKK members, and neo-Nazis. I guess Morris Dees is paid by Big Meat and Big Ag to declare their opposition to be hate groups.


Two activists with the animal rights group “Negotiation Is Over” (NIO) have been arrested at a protest in Florida. Group founder Camille Marino was arrested on an out of state warrant, and is awaiting extradition to Michigan.

In Michigan, NIO is campaigning against an animal experimenter at Wayne State University named Donal O’Leary, who uses dogs in heart experiments. One of the dogs, the Dalmation pictured above named Queenie, was forced to run on a treadmill with a device implanted in her heart, catheters protruding from her body, and open wounds leaking fluids. The Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine and five Michigan doctors urged the federal government to investigate O’Leary’s violations of the Animal Welfare Act.

Marino has allegedly posted personal information about O’Leary on the NIO website, alongside inflammatory commentary and her voicing support for physical violence. (Most of these posts appear to have been removed recently.) For example, on one of the NIO blog posts about O’Leary, a commenter wrote 800 words of gruesome details about what should be done to him, such as “We will then strap you into a monkey restraining device and use industrial pliers to crack your testicles like walnuts.”

Marino replied:

Is there any chance I can persuade you to videotape your proposed activism so that we might upload it to NIO for the entire community to enjoy?

I just finished sending off an email to this motherfucker wishing him a slow painful death.

I would be elated to actually watch it come to pass!

In response to the violent rhetoric and posting of personal information, Wayne State University banned Marino from campus. Later, O’Leary obtained a court order that instructed Marino to remove the personal information from her website. She not only refused, she reposted it and wished him “good luck” collecting his legal fees.

Since her arrest, there has been wildly inaccurate information about the case. For instance, some NIO supporters claimed she was being held in a maximum security prison (she’s not, she is in Alachua County Jail). Others put out press releases saying that this was the first arrest under the National Defense Authorization Act (her arrest had nothing to do with NDAA). Such exaggeration doesn’t help anyone.

However, NIO’s opponents are spreading what could be much more dangerous misinformation.

Americans for Medical Progress, an industry group, says NIO is an “animal rights hate group” and the Southern Poverty Law Center has included NIO in its “Hate Watch” column.

Marino’s campaigning is controversial, but to call it a “hate group” is overreaching. Among the many differences between NIO and hate groups is that animal rights activists are opposing people because of what they do rather than who they are.

An even more important difference is that hate groups engage in physical violence, while NIO has only sensationally talked about it on blogs and Facebook.

As one commenter said on Hate Watch:

Upon reading the story it looks like Ms. Marino is not guilty of any serious crime… She did have a protective order issued against her, I’m not sure it was really violated here and it may get dismissed. She has committed no specific act of violence or damage to property. An expired drivers license is no big deal either.

These are important points to consider when discussing whether NIO’s blog is protected by the First Amendment. At the heart of the two key standards in First Amendment law is the question: Is the speaker using outrageous rhetoric to get attention, or will these threats be carried out?

In this case, the answer is clear.

While Marino and her followers may praise the tactics of anti-abortion extremist Scott Roeder and suicide bombers (Marino says: “If one is going to end their own suffering, it would be an admirable act if they took as many abusers as possible with them”) there has never been physical violence in the name of their cause.

And while Camille Marino mugshotMarino may write about how she is eager for the day when animal rights activists cross that line and murder human beings (and other activists have been saying the same thing for decades), it is just that: words.

There are limits to speech, of course, and there’s no doubt that NIO’s conduct tests those limits. But, as I wrote in Green Is the New Red:

The history of the First Amendment is one of protecting the vulgar, the crass, the wayward and unhinged. It has protected Clarence Brandenburg, a Ku Klux Klan leader, when he called for “revengeance” against the courts, Congress and the president, while Klansmen at the rally shouted “bury the niggers.” At a very different kind of rally, Robert Watts told anti-war protesters that he would refuse service if drafted to Vietnam. “If they ever make me carry a rifle,” he said, “the first man I want to get in my sights is L.B.J.”

Why have the courts upheld such a radical interpretation of the First Amendment? What can be the value of sensationalistic, offensive speech?

The courts have not made exceptions to the First Amendment lightly or without controversy, believing that the amount of protection afforded to those on the fringes reflects the freedoms of those at the center.

Protecting the rights of the Brandenburgs, the Wattses, and the Everses may sound outrageous to those who have been on the receiving end of the vitriol, such as animal experimenters.

And it might even sound outrageous to much of the animal rights movement, because NIO has been such a divisive and confrontational group amongst other animal activists.

But in cases like this all parties should step back and remember that, at its core, the First Amendment has never been about protecting or supporting unsavory speech; it’s about refusing to prohibit it.

What do you think? Should this be protected speech?

@Infowars allows commenters to make #AntiSemitic comments about, #DeathThreats against @SarahKSilverman. #AntiSemitism @RealAlexJones

Just a collection of sick comments left on this article:

Transmitting any threatening remarks via email or forums is a federal offense and carries a maximum penalty of up to 5 years in federal prison per offense. And while federal law currently does not carry criminal penalties for forum owners/moderators who refuse to moderate such threatening comments (including deleting comments and banning people for making such threatening comments), forum moderators can be held liable for civil punitive damages.

Even though Alex Jones cannot be arrested for not censoring threatening comments, his refusal to censor such comments is indication that he supports using such threatening and hateful remarks against anybody whom he does not like.

Are #Trump operatives sending phony #DeathThreats to #AjitPai in order to discredit #NetNeutrality supporters? #FalseFlag #COINTELPRO #Sabotage

Racist, Threatening Attacks on FCC Chair Ajit Pai Won’t Save Net Neutrality

Senate-Holds-Confirmation-Hearing-For-Ajit-Pai-To-Remain-Head-Of-FCC
It’s critically important to oppose FCC Chairman Ajit Pai’s policy without harasssing him or his family.

This past Tuesday, while many Americans were preoccupied with the logistical nightmare of a house full of disagreeable relatives coming together for Thanksgiving dinner, the chairman of the Federal Communications Commission, Ajit Pai, dumped the news of his plan to undo the hard-won net neutrality rules that prevent internet providers from charging websites to access internet users at faster speeds.

 

But freaked-out internet fans didn’t let the holiday food coma prevent them from taking action. They have been organizing, as they should, in hopes of convincing the FCC to hit the brakes on the net neutrality repeal process. The commission could vote to rescind the open internet protections as early as Dec. 14. If that happens, then by as soon as the end of January 2018, internet providers may be able to legally offer websites the option to pay for prioritization, a prospect that will likely leave startups and small websites that can’t afford fast lane speeds slower to load and less likely to attract visitors.

 

So there is work to be done, and it needs to happen quickly. But instead of focusing the ways that the death of the open internet could undermine how Americans work and communicate, some have turned to criticizing Pai himself, even attempting to intimidate his family. On a segment on Fox News on Monday, Pai said that activists had recently come to his home in suburban Virginia with signs directed at his children.

 

“They will come to know the truth. Dad murdered democracy in cold blood,” read one sign, according to Fox. “Families … should remain out of it and stop harassing us at our homes,” Pai said on Fox & Friends.

 

It wasn’t the first time that activists apparently showed up near his home. Menacing, handwritten signs also appeared in Pai’s local neighborhood, including one that named his children and the question, “How will they ever look you in the eye again?” In May, in what appeared to be a coordinated campaign by the advocacy group Popular Resistance, people left flyers on Pai’s neighbors’ doors that included his his picture, age, and weight. Unfortunately, such attacks aren’t new to Pai, who has endured a steady stream of racist, lewd, and threatening backlash since April, when he introduced his intention to gut the net neutrality rules.

 

“Fuck ing brown immigrant comin over here and tryna fu ck over our american freedoms. GO BACK TO YOUR COUNTRY YOU DIRTY SNEAKY INDIAN,” wrote one commenter on the FCC’s docket in May.

 

“We all have the power to murder Ajit Pai and his family. Jk Jk,” another commenter wrote, as though the “Jk Jk” makes it OK.

 

There’s a lot to be angry about when it comes to the process to turn back net neutrality protections. It’s been mired by deeply troubling irregularities: The public comment docket is loaded with submissions from bots and dead people, not to mention a suspicious cyberattack on the FCC’s comment system, which is currently under investigation. But these disgusting ad-hominem attacks on the FCC chairmen do absolutely nothing to help the cause of net neutrality.

 

Before becoming a journalist, I worked on various tech policy issues, including network neutrality at the Electronic Frontier Foundation, where I blogged about the importance of protecting open internet regulations. My work at Slate today is informed by my researched and strong opinion that it’s critically important to prevent internet providers from deciding what websites get to load faster than others. I fully realize that it is a dense, technical, confusing topic, and that it is difficult to build a public campaign around regulating internet traffic speeds.

 

But the solution is not to send racist comments to Pai and threaten his family, or to circulate internet memes depicting Pai’s face surrounded by lewd sexual imagery. Such tactics have absolutely nothing to with the substance of Pai’s anti-net neutrality proposal—and there is plenty there to mock and criticize.

 

So please, if you do want to participate in the public debate over saving network neutrality, stick to the facts and your personal stories about why accessing an open internet is important to you. Send comments to the FCC. Call your member of Congress. Demonstrate at the FCC or Comcast or AT&T or Verizon. Hang signs. Share information online. And if you do see a tweet or comment personally attacking Ajit Pai or his family, consider reporting or condemning it. The FCC is expected to vote to rescind net neutrality in less than three weeks. Don’t squander the narrow window on useless or even worse, harassing messages. The fate of the internet is at stake.
