|Tools of the Dissident - The Famous Subversive Triad|
Washington DC – The federal government spent $1 million to create an online database that will collect “suspicious” memes and track “misinformation.” The project, which is known as the “Truthy Database” is being funded by The National Science Foundation, but it seems as if the operation has some powerful political motivations.
Ironically enough, the project takes its name from a term that was popularized by television personality, Stephen Colbert.
The project will seek to understand how misinformation is spread online, but it will be up to a team of government-funded researchers at Indiana University to decide what type of political speech is true and which is false.
“The project stands to benefit both the research community and the public significantly. Our data will be made available via [application programming interfaces] APIs and include information on meme propagation networks, statistical data, and relevant user and content features. The open-source platform we develop will be made publicly available and will be extensible to ever more research areas as a greater preponderance of human activities are replicated online. Additionally, we will create a web service open to the public for monitoring trends, bursts, and suspicious memes. This service could mitigate the diffusion of false and misleading ideas, detect hate speech and subversive propaganda, and assist in the preservation of open debate,” the grant said.
The website for the project goes on to explain the importance of memes in their research, and their intentions to find out exactly where certain memes originate.
|In Ferguson to Take Some Big Ones for The Struggle|
Since last month’s police shooting of “gentile giant” thug Brown, the agitators of Ferguson have been protesting the perceived injustice by destroying property and stealing things that don’t belong to them. Adult actress Sasha Pain was so moved by the civil disobedience and chaos that she left her home and traveled to Ferguson to support the cause.
But Ms. Pain is not just in Missouri to join the protests, she has vowed to donate all of the money she earns from performing pornographic acts on webcams to help fuel the civil disobedience.
"Pain, who makes webcam sex videos, says she won’t stop working just because she’s on the road. When she has an Internet connection in Ferguson, she’ll make sex tapes and donate proceeds from videos to buy supplies to protect protesters from tear gas, she says."
“Everything that I make while I’m here that I don’t need to feed myself, the people I’m with and over my bills is going toward buying food for protesters and gas masks,” said Pain."
If the people of Ferguson thought they had a champion in Eric Holder and the Justice Department, they must be over the moon knowing that a Z-list porn actress is on the scene to protect their civil rights. Read More
"Maybe we could just extend Canada Day to Canada Week and skip celebrating the Fourth Of July entirely until there’s an actual reason to take pride in being a U.S. citizen. Maybe we could replace the Fourth with something a little more topical. We could make June 30th a national holiday. Happy Corporations Day! Celebrate by disenfranchising someone in the name of capitalist ideals under the guise of religious tolerance. Wave the White Christian Male flag, buy a bunch of shitty American factory-brewed beer, and drunkenly impregnate a bunch of those second-class subhuman citizens whom we relegate to the status of sex objects or baby incubators, as our version of god so clearly intended. I may be a bit angry."- apricoticaNOTE: I don't recommend the blogger above*, or for that matter any of the depressed, over-medicated, confused narcissistic hetro-phobic angry atheist crybaby leftist blogs on the sewer known as Tumblr. I happened to run across this comment while jumping over the ditch water and found it a fine microcosm of the stupidity and twisted psyche of uninformed Americans of all I've read since yesterdays court decision.
I Thank You my Dear Curmudgeon, and to the top of the trophy case it goes.
I always said I could use a little more bust. In addition, now maybe people will pay more attention to me as I ride through town hollerin' out my car window.
Noted conspiracy theorist Alex Jones is currently in negotiations to write his life story. The working title is, “The Boy Who Cried Wolf Thinks The Sky Is Falling.”
The details of the book are severely under-wraps because Jones is fearful that the government will sell his information to secret communist Martians who are looking to construct a constitution based on his manifesto and coercion techniques.
It would seem that Mr. Jones wants all who purchase his book to read it, then immediately burn it because he doesn’t want the government to learn his secrets, but also doesn’t want to lose the profit of you buying into his book.
Jones has been apprehensive about even releasing the title because he’s fearful the government will find the printing press, insert tiny explosive devices into every copy, and then put the blame back onto him.
The only reason Middle Finger News was able to bring the news of Jones’ new book to you was a promise to never trust the government again, move our organization underground, and barricade ourselves in an explosion-proof bunker while only communicating with the outside world through a new version of Morris Code unbeknown to the United States federal government.
