YouTube Removes Anonymous Video Threatening KKK

“Content designed to harass, bully or threaten”
Weird • Views: 26,795

Over the weekend we noted that the Anonymous hacker’s group had responded to a threat by the Ku Klux Klan in Ferguson, Missouri, by outing the identities of more than a few Klan members. Anonymous posted a YouTube video announcing their “OpKKK,” and today that video has been removed from YouTube with this message:

Anonymous Is Doxing the Klan

Some Ku Klux Klan members made threats against protesters in Ferguson, and now the Anonymous hacker group is retaliating by doxing Klan members: Anonymous Takes the Hoods Off the KKK After Threats of ‘Lethal Force’ on Ferguson Protesters.

These people sure do fit the stereotypes when the white hoods come off.

What if the Ku Klux Klan Were More Inclusive?

Bad thinking
Weird • Views: 36,518

Some concepts are not really worth pursuing.

For example, reclaiming the swastika as a Buddhist symbol of good fortune? Not gonna happen.

Same principle applies to this well-known Montana white supremacist’s attempt to launch an all-new “inclusive” Ku Klux Klan.

Not gonna happen. The brand is too fucked up.

John Abarr of Great Falls claims he is a reformed man, which is why he’s started a new KKK group called the Rocky Mountain Knights. Though he won’t say exactly how many members this new KKK group has, the organization will not discriminate against people because of race, religion or sexual orientation.

“The KKK is for a strong America,” Abarr said. “White supremacy is the old Klan. This is the new Klan.”

Though he’s long been involved in white supremacy organizations growing up in Wyoming and Montana, Abarr claims his opinions have slowly evolved. Last year he met with members of the NAACP in Casper, Wyo. It has inspired him to organize a peace summit with the NAACP and other religious groups in the summer of 2015. …

But officials at the Montana Human Rights Network are suspicious about Abarr’s latest move. Rachel Carroll-Rivas, co-director of MHRN, said Abarr doesn’t need to use the KKK to form a more inclusive organization.

“If John Abarr was actually reformed, he could drop the label of the KKK,” she said.

In Which Right Wing Blogger Chuck C. Johnson Takes Credit for Stopping Ebola

He’s a scientist
Weird • Views: 41,942

Here at LGF I’ve written numerous articles on the dishonest fear-mongering coverage of Ebola by right wing smear merchant Chuck C. Johnson; his record on this has been absolutely abysmal, filled with incompetent factual errors, wildly incorrect predictions, outright lies, smears of doctors and nurses, and stalking and outing private information of suspected Ebola patients.

Today Chuck informed the world via Twitter that he’s actually a hero who stopped the spread of Ebola by inciting panic, because that’s how science works — by making people scared.

It’s science, people!

Right Wing Blogger Chuck C. Johnson Is Now a Real Live Stalker

Creepy and disturbing behavior
Weird • Views: 35,617

Today at Talking Points Memo, Tom Kludt has a report on our pal Chuck C. Johnson, who has now crossed a major line into outright stalking behavior. The target: yours truly.

After a pitstop for an Italian dinner on Tuesday night, right-wing agitator Charles C. Johnson showed up at what he thought was the residence of his biggest online adversary — a man who just so happens to share his name — and snapped photos of himself standing outside the complex’s gate holding conspiracy theory bumper stickers.

Johnson said he retrieved the address to the Pacific Palisades apartment online.

“At the world headquarters of Little Green Footballs…” Johnson tweeted, appending a hashtag to signify his latest obsession.

Here’s his tweet:

But in Chuck’s usual incompetent way, he went to the wrong place to stalk me.

Little Green Footballs, of course, is the online home of blogger Charles Johnson. But the apartment shown in the tweet hasn’t been his actual home for more than 10 years.

“Actually, when I first saw it I didn’t recognize the place because I haven’t lived there for so long,” Johnson of Little Green Footballs told TPM on Wednesday. “I thought he was just making a joke at first and I looked at it again and realized that’s the place I used to live.”

Here’s how he attempts to justify this threatening behavior; note that it’s extremely common for a stalker to accuse the target of being “the real stalker.”

“The lesser Charles Johnson encouraged his followers to stalk me for daring to report the name of the Ebola nurse, Nina Pham, 12 hours before the rest of the media,” the founder of the fledgling GotNews said in the email. “He’s kind of crazy and I’ve talked to law enforcement about what can be done about his sending stalkers my way. Showing up at his apartment complex door was intended as something of a joke. I knew he would go nuts on Twitter all night, which he promptly did.”

The lies in this statement are numerous:

  1. I never encouraged anyone to "stalk" Chuck. Not once. It didn't happen.
  2. I never "sent stalkers his way," and I seriously doubt he ever "talked to law enforcement." Filing a false police report is a crime.
  3. This was definitely not a joke. It was very obviously intended to scare me, to stop me from criticizing him.
  4. I didn't "go nuts on Twitter all night," although Chuck himself has done this more than once.

Here’s what I told Tom Kludt about this:

The Little Green Footballs founder didn’t find it funny, calling it a “total violation of privacy.”

“For somebody who calls himself a journalist to do something like this, it’s way, way over the line,” he told TPM. “If I had kids, I’d be even more upset. This is basically threatening. The guy has posted pictures of himself holding guns online. It’s a very threatening, stalker-ish thing to do. What can I say? I’m just very upset about it.”

Since this article was published, Chuck is now openly bragging on Twitter about stalking me, saying it was “a joke,” and at the same time repeating his false claims that he’s the real victim.

All I have to add to what I told Talking Points Memo is that if Chuck thought he was going to scare me into shutting up about him, he made a serious miscalculation.

The Police Audio of the Palin Family’s Post-Drunken Brawl Interviews Is Not Pretty

Springeresque

Radar Online has posted the unedited audio of police interviewing people after the Sarah Palin family’s drunken brawl last September at a party in Anchorage, and it’s a trash-fest if there ever was one. Warning: Bristol and Willow Palin drop plenty of F-bombs and other initial-bombs too. Tell the kids to leave the room before you listen.

New Details on Palin Family’s Drunken Brawl: It Started When Track Was Mackin’

“Bend them over on the lawn”
Weird • Views: 37,704

From Jeanne Devon at the Mudflats blog, new even-more-sordid details on the now famous Palin family drunken brawl: You Want the Palin Brawl? Here It Is.

The Palins arrived at the party, but not just Sarah and Todd who were the only actual invitees from the clan - the whole fan-damnily and some other tagalong friends from Wasilla turned up in a stretch Hummer limo. Because, of course they did. The party was an adult and relaxed event, with most guests at least in their 30s. Reports have come in that Track got into a fight with an ex-boyfriend of Willow’s. But according to my source, the initial fight started when Track and his buddy were aggressively pursuing… how shall I put this… “romantic relations” with some female guests. They were allegedly explicit and crude in their depictions of what they’d like to do with and to the ladies, expressing a desire to “bend them over on the lawn,” according to my source. Apparently the lawn was large enough to include places one could be “bent over.”

Hey. You guys wanted this… don’t look at me.

As Track and his companion were wooing the ladies with honeyed words, certain individuals took exception to it - namely the husbands of the women in question, whose presence right there with their wives the whole time was no deterrent to our confident and ambitious Casanovas from the Mat-Su.

Track did not fare well in the ensuing confrontation with the spouse. The irate husband punched Track with the full force of his annoyance, and the young Palin ended up “spread eagle lying on the grass.” You could say someone did end up bent over on the lawn, but not in the way he first envisioned.

Track’s buddies then got involved in the fracas to defend the honor of their fallen comrade, others followed, and soon Bristol Palin began to punch the host in the face for reasons we do not fully understand. Repeatedly. Then Todd showed up and joined the scrum, ending up with a bloody nose out of the deal. Did I mention that it happened to be his 50th birthday? He probably won’t forget the big 5-Ohhhh.

Then Sarah shrieked, “Don’t you know who I am?” and other such things making clear the importance of the Palins, and the lack of importance of the non-Palins to whom she was speaking. She then apparently tried to fling herself on top of the giant dog pile into the middle of the melée.

And there’s more new info; the company that fired eyewitness Eric Thompson for appearing on ABC’s Good Morning America is closely associated with Sarah Palin and received large amounts of money in government contracts when Palin was in office.

Good Morning America Interviews Witness to Palin Family’s Drunken Brawl - Witness Then Fired From Job

This morning, ABC’s Good Morning America interviewed an eyewitness to the Palin family’s drunken brawl at a party in Anchorage — who was reportedly fired from his job after the interview aired.

The witness, Eric Thompson, reportedly worked at the company for whose owners this party was organized — which raises the question: did the Palins pull strings to get Thompson fired?

Best Story of the Day: Sarah Palin Clan Reportedly Involved in Huge Drunken Brawl

Only the highest quality gossip
Weird • Views: 40,709

Yes, I know, that headline! Can this possibly be true?

Well, dear readers, there are multiple sources now, so I believe this has to qualify as the best story of the day so far, as the whole Palin family is reported to have been involved in a giant drunken brawl at a party in Anchorage, complete with the mater familias screeching, “DON’T YOU KNOW WHO I AM?!” before uncorking her wicked left hook.

Yr Wonkette is where I first sighted this wondrous tale: Anchorage PD: Palins Were ‘Present’ at 20-Person Brawl. Fate of Hos’ Weave Unknown.

And there’s a detailed account of the festivities at Amanda Coyne’s blog: Hell Hath No Fury Like a Palin Family Visit.

As many of us have read, Bristol Palin was visited by a Floridian stalker on Sunday who somehow ended up on the family’s balcony. The stalker currently sits in jail. That’s pretty dramatic. But that’s the least of it. The night before, Saturday, was a doozy. The details are a little sketchy, but there’s enough of them, from enough different sources, that a story emerges, a story that according to the gossip Gods, looks kind of like this: There’s some sort of unofficial birthday/Iron Dog-type/snowmachine party in Anchorage. A nice, mellow party, until the Palin’s show up. There’s beer, of course, and maybe other things. Which is all fine, but just about the time when some people might have had one too many, a Track Palin stumbles out of a stretch Hummer, and immediately spots an ex-boyfriend of Willow’s. Track isn’t happy with this guy, the story goes. There’s words, and more. The owner of the house gets involved, and he probably wished he hadn’t. At this point, he’s up against nearly the whole Palin tribe: Palin women screaming. Palin men thumping their chests. Word is that Bristol has a particularly strong right hook, which she employed repeatedly, and it’s something to hear when Sarah screams, “Don’t you know who I am!” And it was particularly wonderful when someone in the crowd screamed back, “This isn’t some damned Hillbilly reality show!” No, it’s what happens when the former First Family of Alaska comes knocking. As people were leaving in a cab, Track was seen on the street, shirtless, flipping people off, with Sarah right behind him, and Todd somewhere in the foreground, tending to his bloody nose.

And it’s even been confirmed now by Anchorage PD: Anchorage Police Department Provides an Update and Case Number for the Throw Down at the Hoedown.

We can only hope and pray that someone yanked out their cell phone in time and got video of the fisticuffs. If it exists, you know it’s got to come out.

UPDATE at 9/11/14 5:39:09 pm by Charles Johnson

Amanda Coyne now has more details on the Palin family battle royale:

What I have heard since, without much trying, and what I knew then, is that the cops were called after the brawl. It’s confirmed that the Palins, all of them, were involved in some way involved in a fight at a house in Anchorage were a party was going it. Bristol’s son, Tripp was at the party. I have confirmed from multiple sources that Bristol punched someone repeatedly, and that charges might be filed. I spoke to a source yesterday who witnessed part of it. She said that some in the crowd were trying to restrain Sarah, who was clawing to get involved in the fight, which had moved to the cul-de-sac outside of the house. She was also screaming loudly. She wore platform high-tops with the American flag on them, and Bristol wore big, round shades. As I reported, Track was at some point in the night, shirtless.

The whole family arrived in a stretch Hummer limo, and had to be told to leave the house.

UPDATE at 9/12/14 7:32:25 am by Charles Johnson

More details now emerging:

As I had reported a few days ago, multiple accounts say that it started when Track confronted Willow’s former boyfriend, Conner Cleary, who was there with his father Steve and his mother Melissa. Thompson didn’t see this part, but other witnesses, who didn’t want to be named, say that Conner and Track fought on the front yard. Steve tried to break it up. Todd jumped into the mix and began to choke Steve.

After that ended, Conner, Steve, and Melissa Cleary huddled together close to Thompson, who spotted Bristol and Willow from a distance, walking straight towards them with purpose.

“They were on a b-line, coming straight at Melissa,” Thompson said.

The owner of the house, Klingenmeyer, was trying to head them off at the pass. He approached them and told them to leave. Bristol, according to Thompson and other witnesses, planted her feet, “stood straight up, brought her arm back and cold-cocked him right in the face,” Thompson said.

And then she did it again, about six more times, before he pushed her away, and she fell, and Todd appeared.

“I was thoroughly amazed at the restraint Korey showed. He’s a total gentlemen,” Thompson said.

Another melee. This time Sarah got involved and began to scream profanities at everyone. One source, who didn’t want to be named, said that she was “nearly crawling on top of people,” trying to get into the scrum.
