"VIDEO: Colbert Responds to O'Reilly Flip-Out..."
(12 Responses so far...)
Colbert will someday be in the history books for his speaking truth to power at the 2006 White House Correspondents Dinner
There is a hidden section at the Randi Rhodes Message Board for feedback questions. I asked how the original moderators acquired their positions. The responses were mostly satiric spam. What are they trying to hide?
For a board that has yet to explain how over four years of archives have been scrubbed, this further obfuscation has me wondering how they are any different than the other major "progressive" boards who scrub, delete, and censor. Astroturfing and controlled opposition appears to be everywhere on the internet.
That link above appears to be an excerpt. The full version can be seen here. Sorry for any inconvenience.
And tonight Keith Olberman ripped lil' bush a new one. It was more powerful than the last one where he told it like it is and said "mr president you are a liar".
It was excellent!!!!!
My general understanding (from Randi) is that the AAR folks scrubbed her site, even though it was hers, after she left AAR.
In any case, it wasn't her, if that's what you were implying, but rather the folks who weren't happy with her for leaving, as I understand it.
All internet moderators are definitely CIA plants, but don't tell anyone because that would ruin it.
And Stephen Colbert is beyond all doubt the World's Greatest Living Human for his work at that Correspondents' Dinner. It was beautiful and it was courageous and ultimately American. He deserves a national holiday in his honor for it... at the least.
Helen Thomas too.
Sorry for any confusion. I'm implying that Randi Rhodes has next to nothing to do with the RRMB.
It does seem to have been AAR's decision to scrub the archives.
There is definitely a dark cloud over the "progressive" message boards. I did not invent this.
Hey Agent 99, how did you get the moderator position here? Did you post at Democratic Underground? A friend of Brad's in real life? Perhaps it doesn't really matter, but simple questions like this shouldn't be so tough to explain.
And it wouldn't be CIA, we're talking more like netvocates, advantage consultants, bivings group, astroturfers. The FBI with Hal Turner. The CIA is more about other countries. NSA and DHS would be the types to post. Along with the astroturfers like the groups I mentioned.
Here's a cool version of the O'Reilly meltdown:

As I recall, I was intensely grateful to discover Brad existed and was doing what he was doing. It had been months since 2004 was stolen and I was beside myself about it... with no relief from my fellow liberals... just a lot tsking. So I braved the assault to my senses of his old theme and found myself practically living on this blog. I found myself helping answer questions that hung in the air. I reiterate, I was profoundly grateful for Brad's focus and work. So, naturally, I merely told him I would help him however I could. I still feel that way....
I have never so much as read a line of DU. I thought people were talking about depleted uranium whenever they mentioned it. A troll, who accused me of being from DU, had to explain to me what DU was.
I have no other internet identity. It's Agent 99 here, and just plain 99 elsewhere.
And, besides, my bosses at The Agency gave him no choice.
Thanks for the response. That makes sense.
I found this place because Bev Harris and Brad were getting attacked as fakes. I've yet to see any proof of that. I started to write here a bit, when Brad fought back against DailyKos to set that record straight. I know firsthand what it's like to be labelled a "conspiracy nutter" based on ad hominems rather than on the truth.
It is unsettling to realise that we can't trust our electoral system. Thanks to BradBlog for documenting this specific problem and for allowing freedom of thought, expression, and association.
the people united will never be defeated

Well, we wouldn't be very good fakes if we allowed any proof of it to sneak out, would we?
