Velvetrevolution - a confession?

I thought this was strange to see at VelvetRevolution, considering what I'd previously wondered about - whether a far-right organisation could pose as a critic of the election system to clandestinely undermine faith in the democratic process. Rather than serve as a critic of election fraud to defend the principle of democracy - as they purport - it is easily possible to imagine a critic seeking to promote election fraud as a means of undermining faith in "liberal democracy". It could be done to create a sense of illegitimacy of government, and also to create the space for a demand for "something different".......possibly even something not based upon democracy (following the example of Weimar, and Nazism)

Stop Domestic Terror

Recently, there has been an explosion in threats and acts of domestic terrorism. The majority of these can be traced to groups and individuals who do not accept the results of our recent election or the laws enacted or proposed by those who have been elected. They seek to undermine the democratic process through threats, intimidation, and even outright murder. They can't accept the legitimacy of the President, or a woman's legal right to make choices about her own medical care, or an immigrant's right to be treated humanely under the law, so they carry out acts that are antithetical to American democracy, American values, and both civil and human rights.

The fringe element that makes up those who commit these acts of terror is frequently exploited by a continuous wave of rightwing media advocating violence, either directly or indirectly, and by commentators amplifying the talking points of extremist religious leaders and extremist political leaders. This fringe is incited on our public airwaves, and urged to take matters into their own hands, with the underlying belief that the Bible and/or U.S. Constitution justify using ‘whatever means’ are necessary to oppose what they believe to be immoral laws.

That seems to reveal an uncannily accurate rejection of what I suggested. Yes - it's a rejection - but that's the point. They're saying they reject exactly the sort of thing I had been on about - for the exact same reasons.

But this is coming from people who work to promote the notion of "election fraud" -- which they just asserted has been a major driving force behind "domestic terrorism".

ETA: Their campaign features this note:
We are supporting the efforts of other organizations that are addressing various aspects of this campaign, such as www.colorofchange.org, www.mediamatters.org, www.shockjock.org, www.rightwingwatch.org, www.splcenter.org, www.nhmc.org., suewilsonreports.com, www.alternet.org, www.freepress.net, www.thinkprogress.org, www.americanprogress.org, www.latinosagainsthatespeech.org, www.adl.org.
Hey - VelvetRevolution founder member Brad Friedman should look closer to home? As if the moderator of his website (BradBlog) appreciates SPLC and ADL as allies? Hmmmm. Very odd.

Elsewhere in their campaign, VR call for a few things......which because of my experience of the people around the VelvetRevolution/BradBlog group make me immediately think they are targeting "joooos":
review whether any media groups are violating antitrust laws by monopolizing media or media markets
If that was written by BradBlog's moderator, it would be perfectly reasonable to conclude they meant to target "joooos". Big Dan's Blog, populated by BradBlog commentators, including the moderator, indulge a long-running theme that the media is "joooish controlled".

At one moment the commentariat and moderator of BradBlog are espousing "jooooish media control" at BigDan'sBigBlog - "google Hitler's last testament!" - whilst over at BradBlog's associated website, VelvetRevolution, people are calling for investigation of media monopolies - alongside the ADL and SPLC!!

Pardon me, but how the fucking hell does that make sense?

Bradblog's Plunger saying "Media = ALL LIES = Jewish owned and complicit".......BradBlog's Z saying "Media is Jewish Controlled".......BradBlog's VelvetRevolution saying "let's work with the SPLC and ADL to work against 'monopoly media'"

Hmmmm.

VR say:
The campaign urges .....federal legislation to require more diversity in the media, and congressional hearings on media monopolies and the responsibilities of media to act in the public interest.
They mean "reduce jooooish media control"? What else can they mean when considering the same website proprietor (Brad Friedman) indulges the anti-semitism of plunger, Z, BigDan, Agent99 (Brad's moderator!)

For example - at BigDan's, Z - a commentator at BradBlog - and friend of BradBlog's moderator and others - wrote:
They [Jews] only control 96 % of the world media - propaganda machine.

The power of lies, deceptions and disinformation as Americans pay the price of collective stupidity.

Should any minority be allowed to wield such awesome power?

Facts of Jewish Media Control

Plunger - another BradBlog regular - and friend of BradBlog meoderator Agent99 - wrote:
ALL LIES. Media = Jewish-owned and complicit.
Yet Brad's VelvetRevolution seeks to work with ADL and SPLC!? Against racism? (And (joooish) media monopolies.....very clever)

When I posted at BradBlog previously to ask about his apparent indulgence of such anti-semitism, it was deleted, I was denounced as insane.....etc.

Now they're campaigning with the ADL against racism? (and jooooish media monopolies, of course.....)

Confessions or freudian slips or something. Yeah, they ain't gonna come out and say we admit it, we are confidence men out to make a big buck or worse. And I think you are starting to admit something very similar to my notions of internet cointelpro. You have asked whether right wing elements would put up misdirections in order to pervert democratic processes. Yes, not in those words. I actually got that last line from a reporter I was trying to get through with my schtuff. He eventually said ok, you are saying that democratic processes are being perverted on the internet. Precisely. Bingo.

Another way to get a grip on what these people are up to is to look at what they don't admit to or acknowledge. Brad, for all his awareness of the milieu, has his hands over his ears in regards to the anti-semitism coming out of the Big Dan's, Agent99's, and Plungers. The other day he did take Big Dan to task for saying the media is controlled, as in some global conspiracy. I think that was a sign that Brad Friedman is very aware, of everything.

Another thing Brad doesn't want awareness is of Brett Kimberlin's true past. His close friend Larisa Alexandrovna has even gone to the trouble of lying about it, saying he was some form of political prisoner.

If you google the Velvet Revolution website, i.e. site:velvetrevolution.us search words, you get quite different results if you search for Kimberlin or Friedman. Brad shows up quite a bit. Kimberlin is showing up only three times for me, two of which are not even resulting in getting to the article described. One of them should be about Brett's dumbass promotion of waterboarding himself. I can only find one actual result that mentions Brett at his website. It is the one in pdf form where he gave a statement under penalties of perjury concerning the Michael Connell story. There is one "article" at VR in which the story is mentioned, but no Brett Kimberlin is named.

A tipster close to the McCain campaign disclosed to VR in July that Mr. Connell’s life was in jeopardy and that Karl Rove had threatened him and his wife, Heather. VR’s attorney, Cliff Arnebeck, notified the United States Attorney General , Ohio law enforcement and the federal court about these threats and insisted that Mr. Connell be placed in protective custody. VR also told a close associate of Mr. Connell’s not to fly his plane because of another tip that the plane could be sabatoged. Mr. Connell, a very experienced pilot, has had to abandon at least two flights in the past two months because of suspicious problems with his plane. On December 18, 2008, Mr. Connell flew to a small airport outside of Washington DC to meet some people. It was on his return flight the next day that he crashed.

Notice how Arnebeck is said to be VR's attorney? That was a tidbit Larisa and others at DU didn't like mentioned. But VR is the source of that. Tinoire doesn't like to now admit that she was military intelligence, that I was spinning some tinfoil. She's the one that said it, not me!

Brad doesn't like the truth about Kimberlin being exposed. But he's the one who told me to dig up info on himself!

Here's the html link to Brett Kimberlin's statement concerning the Michael Connell hoax.

Here's a pdf link.

{excerpt}
I have received five tips since July 17, 2008 from an unidentified person that I have named "the
tipster "and who I will say is "he" in this declaration. He said that he is close to the McCain
campaign and that he knows of Michael Connell and details that bear on the King Lincoln
Bronzeville v Blackwell case pending in Ohio.


Arnebeck is the attorney from that case. The folks presenting the "big scoop" that Connell's life was in jeopardy are the same people who initiated the lawsuit.
