Censorship of blogs:now they’re getting us to censor our own. has TV Legal News (Gwendolyn Jackson) or someone else asked you to take a post down because it’s “potentially harmful to U.S. soldiers”?

do me a favor. link this to your blog, post, etc. leave a comment. get your friends to leave a comment. if you’ve been asked to remove a post, tell us about it. we need to figure out who all is doing this, how widespread it is, then expose it and stop it from happening. now.

i havent blogged since jan. ’08, but there some things i cant ignore. using fear or patriotism to get a blogger to remove a post is, well, i’ll pick a fight about that.

right now i have no access to the internet, aside from calling friends. i lucked into having time to write this at a friends house, so it’s going to be short and sweet. i’ve had this happen to me, four times, on posts written almost two years ago, if not longer. when i found out it was happening to others, i decided i needed to post this. this is just on the basic situation, and the technique.

free speech is the ESSENCE of blogging. censorship, in any form, cannot be tolerated. at all. period. it is my opinion that an unknown number of bloggers are being censored, forced to take down posts. those doing this to us would say different. they were “just informing” us, something along those lines. first, the technique:

you get an email or comment you need to moderate. this email/comment informs you that your post is ” potentially harmful to U.S. soldiers.” something similar maybe. one of mine also said that someone was facing criminal charges for the posting and re-posting of the material contained in the post. you look up who sent it. the person is a high-profile journalist, lawyer, former army JAG.

WHAT DO YOU DO?

most people, to say the least, will be frightened and take down the post. some may even delete their whole blog. i mean, honestly, what choice do you have? to leave the post up is “potentially harmful to U.S. soldiers”.  most of us have friends and family that are “U.S. soldiers”. we dont want to risk them. the point is YOU HAVE TO TAKE IT DOWN, BUT YOU ARENT DIRECTLY BEING FORCED TO DO SO.

i mean you could leave it up, but your going to probably feel like a traitor, or worse.

not only will you take that post down, most of you would avoid blogging about anything even remotely related to that subject. so, not only will you take down the post, you’ll be really be careful on what you blog about. this is a real sneaky way of circumventing freedom of speech without actually infringing on it. it goes further. it will censor your future posts before you’ve even thought of them,because it censors your thinking about what can and cannot be written. i mean you dont want it happening again. i dont care how they put it, its censorship. it’s more than censorship, its worse. why should you care if it isnt happening to you? well, since it works so good, it will be used against more bloggers, about more subjects, and eventually it will happen to you. none of us can afford to let this go on. IT HAS TO STOP NOW. the CIA is supposedly censoring more things on the internet. they are labeling people “domestic terrorists”. if they arent already using this technique, they or someone like them will. if someone “informs” you that your post is “potentially harmful to U.S. soldiers”, maybe you should ask them to provide some evidence to substantiate that claim. a couple days with no answer, or something vague, will probably get you to take it down.

THIS IS HAPPENING TO BLOGGERS RIGHT NOW.

no, i dont think Ms. Jackson is running around doing this for fun. nor do i think she is even a major part of this. something is driving these people to do this. more on this later.

please comment. good or bad, for or against my point of view, it might take a while but your comment will go up. as always, if you wish to remain anonymous, begin your comment with ” From: Anonymous”. i will put it up myself. in my opinion, this is one of the most important issues bloggers as a group have ever faced. IT NEEDS TO STOP.

why am i such an idiot on the radio?

i’m at a friends house listening to myself last night on the radio show. i really dont do a good job at all at defending my views! i even gave the wrong web address for my blog! i think it’s because i cant quote where i get statics from, because i’m sitting in a car. i dont have the net anymore, so i rarely get to access much info. i’m just talking off the top of my head. i’ll try to do better next time!

Be sure to listen to our radio show on saturdays at 11pm

i have not been able to get on the net as usual. You have to listen to our radio show though on saturday nights at 11pm.

Urban Monkey Warfare. (KMFDM lyrics)

“Urban Monkey Warfare”

All you want is a scapegoat
All you want is to get absolution from shame
You have nothing to lose anymore
Never was anything worth to be lost in this war in the first place

They make you hate their name
Prostrate yourself in the arena of blame
Nothing at all is left to be said
The flag’s gone up and the dawn is red

Headed down the hard way
Concrete battleground
Urban monkey warfare
Sabotage underground camouflage

Man-monkey
Monkey-man
Urban gorilla

All you know is reflection
All you know is the code to hack and crack
The truth lies buried in shallow graves
Who’s afraid to claim it back?
