Bringing Breitbart (And Thomas) To Justice (MOAR)
-Originally blogged by Stranded Wind on the Daily Kos
June 2, 2011- As the situation becomes more clear the need for accountability becomes equally clear.
Congressman Anthony Weiner was stalked, set up, smeared, and this was coordinated to protect Clarence Thomas from scrutiny.
This is another ACORN, another Shirley Sherrod, another NPR ‘sting’. They pick a target, they lie and deceive until they have something a credulous corporate media will swallow, and then another career is ruined or another community resource is destroyed.
Only this time Breitbart’s continuing criminal enterprise has encountered something they did not expect …
Unlike ACORN, which happened at specific locations, Weinergate was ginned up in cyberspace. Unlike the ACORN employees, used to doing service work for their communities, this event happened where everyone could see it.
Many people have taken an interest in this situation. One of them sent me a screen shot to the yfrog belonging to @goatsred, who was involved in guiding @patriotusa76 in his work smearing Congressman Weiner.
How did this come to be in this guy’s yfrog? I can think of three reasons: 1.) Utter dumbassery – not smart enough to cover his tracks. 2.) Purposeful disinformation placed by the user, planning to punk anyone credulous who finds this. 3.) Someone exercised the yfrog vulnerability they used against Congressman Weiner to set them up for an investigation.
I went through all 196 photos in the yfrog. This guy does a lot of screenshots, this is the only one taken from Tweetdeck. I am inclined to think he just got worked, but … there MUST be an investigation.
This person who likes goats, he never expected to be under scrutiny. The investigation got a lot easier, because the person who sent the link to the suspicious yfrog also sent this.
Among his 196 images was this letter to the DoJ, apparently about some election fraud fantasy. I clipped to make it legible – the original showed the exact date and time he mailed the DoJ … and other things.
Those other things, this string of individually small mistakes led to this …
So it was a short process from getting contacted by this anonymous person with a hushmail account until I had this guy’s full name, his home address, his date of birth, and a collection of phone numbers. I wrapped it nice and neat and forwarded it to the FBI.
