Online trolls are sadistic psychopaths

Uruk-Hai

Urban Dictionary defines troll as “One who posts a deliberately provocative message to a newsgroup or message board with the intention of causing maximum disruption and argument.”

Appropriately, the etymology or origin of the English noun troll in the standard sense of ugly dwarf or giant dates to 1610 and comes from the Old Norse word ‘troll’ meaning giant or demon.

Like other sites, FOTM has our share of obnoxious trolls. An example is a demonic troll who first called himself Lets Kill Birthers and made death threats against our writers. I repeatedly banned him, but he kept coming back by using a seemingly endless series of aliases — Birthers are Traitors, Why Lie, Truth Hurts, Want Truth?, James Spader, Jasper, John Bingham, David Strange, Jason Jones, JasperX, John Jasper, Jack, middle upperclass guy, hater of trashjerks, Tom, Tom’sBro, tbm, Tman, The Humphrey. Boss Hogg, paid blogger, Devil’s Advocate, Tom Franks. And so I cut to the quick by addressing him simply — and appropriately — as Legion.

Interestingly, Legion’s trolling stopped at around the time that an Obamabot named Adam Eugene Cox was arrested, and found guilty, for making death threats against Arizona sheriff Joe Arpaio.

Adam Cox

It, therefore, comes as no surprise to me that a new psychological study, E.E. Buckels et al, “Trolls just want to have fun,” Personality and Individual Differences, 2014, determined that online trolls are narcissistic, manipulative, deceptive, sadistic PSYCHOPATHS.

In other words, trolls are evil.

Chris Mooney reports for the Daily Mail, Feb. 14, 2014, that new research by Erin Buckels of the University of Manitoba and two colleagues sought to investigate whether people who engage in trolling are characterized by personality traits that fall in the so-called “Dark Tetrad”: Machiavellianism (willingness to manipulate and deceive others), narcissism (egotism and self-obsession), psychopathy (the lack of remorse and empathy), and sadism (pleasure in the suffering of others).

The study found correlations, sometimes quite significant, between these traits and trolling behavior. What’s more, it also found a relationship between all Dark Tetrad traits (except for narcissism) and the overall time that an individual spent, per day, commenting on the Internet.

In the study, trolls were identified in a variety of ways. One was by simply asking survey participants what they “enjoyed doing most” when on online comment sites, offering five options: “debating issues that are important to you,” “chatting with others,” “making new friends,” “trolling others,” and “other.” Here’s how different responses about these Internet commenting preferences matched up with responses to questions designed to identify “Dark Tetrad” traits:

The study found that only 5.6% of survey respondents actually specified that they enjoy “trolling.” By contrast, 41.3% of Internet users were “non-commenters,” meaning they didn’t like engaging online at all. So trolls are, as has often been suspected, a minority of online commenters, and an even smaller minority of overall Internet users.

The researchers conducted multiple studies, using samples from Amazon’s Mechanical Turk but also of college students, to try to understand why the act of trolling seems to attract this type of personality. They even constructed their own survey instrument, which they dubbed the “Global Assessment of Internet Trolling” or GAIT, comprised of the following items:

  • I have sent people to shock websites for the lulz.
  • I like to troll people in forums or the comments section of websites.
  • I enjoy griefing other players in multiplayer games.
  • The more beautiful and pure a thing is, the more satisfying it is to corrupt.

Yes, some people actually say they agree with such statements. And again, doing so was correlated with sadism in its various forms, with psychopathy, and with Machiavellianism. Overall, the authors found that the relationship between sadism and trolling was the strongest, and that indeed, sadists appear to troll because they find it pleasurable. “Both trolls and sadists feel sadistic glee at the distress of others,” they wrote. “Sadists just want to have fun…and the Internet is their playground!”

The study comes as websites, particularly at major media outlets, are increasingly weighing steps to rein in trollish behavior. Last year Popular Science did away with its comments sections completely, citing research on the deleterious effects of trolling, and YouTube also took measures to rein in trolling.

But Erin Buckles of the University of Manitoba, the study’s first author, actually isn’t sure that fix is a realistic one. She wrote in an email: “Because the behaviors are intrinsically motivating for sadists, comment moderators will likely have a difficult time curbing trolling with punishments (e.g., banning users)l. Ultimately, the allure of trolling may be too strong for sadists, who presumably have limited opportunities to express their sadistic interests in a socially-desirable manner.”

This is how FOTM deals with psychopaths who make death threats:

1. We respond with this comment:

It is a federal crime, punishable by up to 5 years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000, to transmit any communication containing a threat to injure the person of another, via the Internet and e-mail (as well as the telephone, beepers, and other means of communication). Should any reader of this blog threaten harm to our writers, we will report you and your IP address to the police.

The following information on commenter __ has been turned over to law enforcement:

  • IP address: ______
  • E-mail address: _______

2. Since trolls troll because they think they’re protected by the Internet’s anonymity, if you threaten us, we’ll hunt you down and unmask you, including what you look like.

Author Jack Cashill speaks up for Sandy Hook skeptics

Beware of the label “Conspiracy Theory.”
Although the definition of “conspiracyis simply “an agreement between two or more persons to commit an unlawful act,” the terms “conspiracy theory” and “conspiracy theorists” are equated with “crazy.”
As such, the label is an oft-used weapon to dismiss and discredit anyone who refuses to parrot the party line and instead has the audacity to ask questions about some handed-down “truth”. As if there aren’t real conspiracies: Kennedy’s Operations Northwood Conspiracy, Nixon’s Watergate Conspiracy, Reagan’s Iran-Contra Conspiracy, Obama’s Fast & Furious Conspiracy, and, of course, there’s the criminal Conspiracy called the Mafia.
So much for the much-priced “critical thinking” that’s in the standard publicity literature of U.S. colleges and universities to promote a liberal arts education.
The latest effort to brand skeptics as crazy is over Sandy Hook — the massacre of 26, including 20 first-grade children, at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, on December 14, 2012.
The official version of the massacre should be questioned if for no reasons than that:

  1. There are inconsistencies and anomalies in the official narrative, about which there are no answers because —
  2. A judge had put a gag on what police can tell us about the massacre.  On Dec. 27, 2012, State Superior Court Judge John Blawie ruled that search warrant affidavits for the cars and home of alleged lone shooter Adam Lanza and his mother would stay sealed beyond the normal 14-day period, for another 90 days, that is, until late March 2013.
  3. The massacre has serious policy consequences because it is used by the Obama regime to justify infringements on our Constitutional Second Amendment right to “bear arms.” As an example, Sen. Diane Feinstein (D-Calif) cited the “20 dead children in Newtown” as “a wakeup call” to America when she formally introduced the Assault Weapons Ban of 2013 — her bill to ban “assault weapons,” including rifles, shotguns, and handguns  (See “List of banned guns in Feinstein’s “assault weapons” bill,” Jan. 24, 2013.)

We expect the Left to dismiss Sandy Hook skeptics, but we didn’t expect pundits on “our side” to do so.
A writer for Glenn Beck’s site, The Blaze, did a hit piece on January 23, “This is The Blaze’s Point-by-Point Sandy Hook Conspiracy Theory Debunk.” Beck himself not only dismissed the skeptics, he went a mile further by making fun of us — just as he had mocked “birthers” as stupid. Mockery is a standard tool used to suppress questions and critical thinking.
A commenter on FOTM said that conservative radio talker and Fox TV personality Sean Hannity also dismisses Sandy Hook skeptics. Hannity evidently did not learn a lesson from having lost about half of his TV audience after last November 6’s election. The leftwing Salon attributes the loss to his viewers being disillusioned because Hannity had predicted a Romney win. Salon, of course, is wrong because if that’s the reason, then other conservative talkers should also have lost their audience. No, Salon, viewers and listeners are leaving Hannity in droves because after the Romney loss, Hannity said the GOP should try to be “more appealing” to women and Hispanics, in effect, by becoming a Democrat Party 2.0. When I heard that on his radio show, that was the last time I listened to Sean Hannity.
Here’s author Dr. Jack Cashill’s rejoinder to those who seek to stifle inquiries into the Sandy Hook massacre.

CNN #2 The school these police officers were running into is NOT Sandy Hook Elementary School. Aren’t you at all curious why CNN would do that? See “CNN deception: Live aerial footage of police running into Sandy Hook was of another school,” Jan. 22, 2013.

Debunking the Sandy Hook Debunkers

By Jack Cashill– American Thinker – Jan. 21, 2013

During the age of Obama, the major media have gone fully AWOL. If they fear that their reporting will lead to inconvenient discoveries, they simply stop their advance, lay down their notebooks, and disappear. This trend began in the Clinton years and picked up momentum after the 1994 electoral debacle, but the Clintons at least worried that the media might turn on them.
If Barack Obama ever had any such anxiety, the nonreporting on Fast and Furious, Benghazi and now Sandy Hook has had to reassure him. Sandy Hook is particularly disturbing because the truth is, or at least should have been, so accessible. This tragedy should never have spawned anything like a conspiracy theory, but it obviously has.
Protecting the major media’s flank during retreat are many and sundry well-funded leftist blogs — Huffington Post, The Daily Kos, Media Matters, and TPM among others. While the major media withdraw, the blogs attack those who might challenge the “narrative” the majors have left behind.
A case in point is a recent multi-media Huffington Post piece titled “Sandy Hook Conspiracy Theory Video Debunked By Experts.” In the video intro, HuffPo editor Meredith Bennett-Smith laughingly dismisses the various alternate theories of what transpired at Sandy Hook. Says Bennett-Smith, “That is what conspiracy theorists love to do. They put out a lot of questions, but they don’t necessarily provide a lot of answers.” When there is a Democrat in the White House, alas, anyone who asks a question becomes a conspiracy theorist.
Like too many alleged fact checkers, Bennett-Smith addresses only the least significant of the challenges to the Sandy Hook narrative: the alleged use of crisis actors, the memorials that predated the shooting, the confusion about what weapon was in Adam Lanza’s trunk. The “experts” she promises in the headline turn out to be other Obama-friendly fact checkers like David Mikkelson, founder of Snopes, and Robert Blaskiewicz, editor of a comparable blog called Skeptical Humanities. Absent in the piece is anyone who knows anything about guns or police work.
Predictably, what the HuffPo piece does not address are the two most troubling inconsistencies in the Sandy Hook reporting: the nature of the guns used and the presence or absence of a second shooter. Both questions have gained importance because of the White House’s obvious political exploitation of a ginned up “assault weapon” hysteria.
As to the guns, on December 15, one day after the shooting, NBC’s chief justice correspondent Pete Williams spoke with Today Show host Matt Lauer. Williams shared “new information” from a “couple of federal officials and state officials.” Said Williams, “They say now that there were actually four handguns recovered inside the school, not just two as we were initially told; four handguns and apparently only handguns that were taken into the school.” (Italics mine)
Williams said that Lanza also brought an “assault style, AR-15 style rifle” with him to school, but, he added, “We have been told by several officials that he left that in the car.” In the days that followed, the story would shift to the AR-15, not as the exclusive weapon — two handguns remained in the story — but as “the primary weapon used in the attack.” On December 19, CNN reported, “Police say Lanza’s rifle used numerous 30-round magazines.” By January 6, the Hartford Courant was reporting that Lanza used the handguns only to shoot himself.
This shift in reporting may be justified, and Williams’ sources may have been wrong, but why has no one at NBC addressed the discrepancy? The police had plenty of time to establish the nature of the weapons used that first day. Williams cited multiple police sources. He is a seasoned reporter on a show that takes itself seriously. In retrospect, it is easy to see why authorities would want to bend the narrative to an AR-15, but why would anyone have chosen to mislead Williams on day two?
Equally under-reported is the disposition of the second suspect. On day one, the media were reporting that the police had apprehended a likely second shooter. As CBS News reporter John Miller said definitively, “They have a second person in custody.” He pointed out that this was not at all unprecedented given that there were two shooters at Columbine. Fox News described this person as wearing a black jacket and camouflage pants. According to Fox, a SWAT team escorted him out of the woods.
The Alex Jones Channel, although not always reliable, put together a nonconspiratorial video using network news clips of the chase in the woods, the capture, and interviews with witnesses. ABC News interviewed both a well-spoken child and an adult who confirmed seeing the man in custody. “They did walk a guy out of the woods with handcuffs,” said the man. The fellow then pointed the reporter to a police car where the alleged second shooter was still sitting.
Admittedly, the media got much wrong on day one: the name of the shooter, the mother’s relationship to the school, the supposed murder of the father, but the media quickly walked this information back. If they retracted the stories about the four handguns or the second shooter — or even explained the discrepancies — I have been unable to find any clarification, and the Huffington Post piece provided none either.
Until I see firm evidence, I remain agnostic about the official Sandy Hook narrative. My investigations into TWA Flight 800 and the Oklahoma City bombing have taught me to be wary of an “evolving” story line. In those two tragedies, as is often the case, the early reporting was the most reliable.
With TWA Flight 800, for instance, all initial reporting pointed to a missile strike as the cause of the highly visible explosion that killed 230 people off the coast of Long Island in July 1996. In the weeks that followed, without any new evidence, the Clinton Justice Department ignored the 270 FBI eyewitnesses to a missile strike and shifted the storyline from a missile to a bomb.
The FBI talked exclusively to the New York Times, and the Times returned the favor by interviewing none of the eyewitnesses. The cherry-picked evidence led to the following above-the-fold headline four weeks after the disaster — “Prime Evidence Found That Device Exploded in Cabin of Flight 800.”
Although not as unnerving as a missile strike, the bomb scenario threatened the peace and prosperity message to be promoted at the Democratic National Convention just days away. Whether coordinated with the White House or not, the Times simply ceased reporting on the bomb. A month later, the official narrative shifted from a bomb to a center fuel tank explosion, a possibility that had been ruled out a month earlier. Like the networks at Sandy Hook, the Times never bothered to explain what happened to the evidence that led to the earlier conclusions.
In a similar spirit, days after the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing, the Washington Post reported specific FBI testimony describing “eyewitness accounts of a yellow Mercury with McVeigh and another man inside speeding away from a parking lot near the federal building.” (Italics mine)
The media, however, quickly lost interest in the swarthy John Doe No. 2. The likely reason is that If he proved to be an Islamic radical, it would be harder to blame the “Republican Revolution” for the bombing. At McVeigh’s trial, the Justice Department did not put a single one of the many reliable eyewitnesses on the stand because every one of them saw McVeigh with his foreign-looking accomplice. Again, the media chose not to notice the discrepancy. As Clinton himself acknowledged, Oklahoma City — i.e. the reporting on Oklahoma City — saved his presidency.
Bottom line: if the Democrat-media complex can turn an obvious missile strike into a mechanical failure and lose John Doe #2 to history, turning four handguns into an assault weapon and making a second shooter disappear is small beer.

AZ says it has "verification" of Obama's U.S. birth

Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett says he has received the information he requested from Hawaii, which proves Barack Obama’s American birth. Consequently, Obama now satisfies Arizona’s requirements for being on the state’s election ballot.
Yvonne Wingett Sanchez reports for The Republic/azcentral.com, May 22, 2012, that yesterday a Hawaii government official sent verification of Obama’s birth to Bennett’s office.
Last month, Bennett, who insists he’s not associated with “the birthers,” had asked Hawaii to verify Obama’s birthplace to ensure his eligibility to appear on Arizona’s November ballot.
Bennett said the issue is now resolved from his point of view: “I’m happy that we got what we asked for and that’s what I was expecting all along.” Bennett, therefore, cancelled a planned Wednesday news conference where he had been expected to discuss the issue.
In an e-mail, Joshua A. Wisch, special assistant to the attorney general in Hawaii, also declares the matter to be resolved, “We have received information from Secretary Bennett that satisfied our requirement and has therefore provided his office with a verification of birth for President Obama.”

Ken Bennett


+++
That Hawaii has sent Arizona “verification” of Obama’s U.S. birth is most odd because one year and four months ago, on January 18, 2011, Hawaii’s governor Neil Abercrombie had said he couldn’t find Obama’s original long-form birth certificate! Abercrombie, who is no friend of “birthers,” even admitted that the elusive birth certificate may not exist within the vital records maintained by the Hawaii Department of Health.
The citizens of Arizona should now demand that their secretary of state show them and the American people this “verification” of Obama’s American birth.  And has this “verification” been examined by documentary forensics experts for its authenticity?
Ken Bennett is a Republican and former Arizona state legislator who was appointed secretary of state by Jan Brewer to replace her when she was elected governor. Here is Mr. Bennett’s contact info:

The Honorable Ken Bennett
Secretary of State
1700 West Washington Street, 7th Floor
Phoenix, AZ 85007-2888

Phone: (602) 542-4919

Meanwhile, Arizona Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio is saying this will not deter him from his continuing investigation into Obama’s eligibility and his many concealed documents, including his forged online birth certificate and Selective Service registration. For that matter, the lead detective of Arpaio’s all-volunteer Cold Case Posse investigatory team is already on the ground in Honolulu to do just that.

Ann Barnhardt Responds to Death Threat

A hazard of political blogging are death threats.
The writers of Fellowship of the Minds have received our share (see my post “Birthers Receive Death Threats“). In fact, several months ago, we tangled with a self-described atheist who, after I’d banned him, tried to stalk me via e-mail and Facebook. Then I found his police mugshot, taken when he was arrested for assaulting a woman he was dating because she refused to have sex with him.
Ann Barnhardt is one gutsy lady for standing up to a death threat she received in her e-mail. May God protect her from all evil and harm.
~Eowyn

Ann Barnhardt is a livestock and grain commodity broker and marketing consultant, American patriot, traditional Catholic, and fearless blogger.
She can be reached through her business at www.barnhardt.biz
She has taken on Islam and they have noticed. This is a death threat she received by e-mail:

To: annbarnhardt
From: mufcadnan123!
Subject: Watch your back.

I’m going to kill you when I find you. Don’t think I won’t, I know where you and your parents live and I’ll need is one phone-call to kill ya’ll.


And this is Ann’s response to the POS:

From: annbarnhardt
To: mufcadnan123!
Re: Watch your back.

Hello mufcadnan123!

You don’t need to “find” me.

My address is 9175 Kornbrust Circle, Lone Tree, CO 80124.

Luckily for you, there are daily DIRECT FLIGHTS from Heathrow to Denver. Here’s what you will need to do. After arriving at Denver and passing through customs, you will need to catch the shuttle to the rental car facility. Once in your rental car, take Pena Boulevard to I-225 south. Proceed on I-225 south to I-25 south. Proceed south on I-25 to Lincoln Avenue which is exit 193. Turn right (west) onto Lincoln. Proceed west to the fourth light, and turn left (south) onto Ridgegate Boulevard. Proceed south, through the roundabout to Kornbrust Drive. Turn left onto Kornbrust Drive and then take an immediate right onto Kornbrust Circle. I’m at 9175.

Just do me one favor. PLEASE wear body armor. I have some new ammunition that I want to try out, and frankly, close-quarter body shots without armor would feel almost unsporting from my perspective. That and the fact that I’m probably carrying a good 50 I.Q. points on you makes it morally incumbent upon me to spot you a tactical advantage.

However, being that you are a miserable, trembling coward, I realize that you probably are incapable of actually following up on any of your threats without losing control of your bowels and crapping your pants while simultaneously sobbing yourself into hyperventilation. So, how about this: why don’t you contact the main mosque here in Denver and see if some of the local musloids here in town would be willing to carry out your attack for you?

After all, this is what your “perfect man” mohamed did (pig excrement be upon him). You see, mohamed, being a miserable coward and a con artist, would send other men into battle to fight on his behalf. Mohamed would stay at the BACK of the pack and let the stupid, ignorant suckers like you that he had conned into his political cult do the actual fighting and dying. Mohamed would then fornicate with the dead men’s wives and children. You should follow mohamed’s example! Here is the contact info for the main mosque here in Denver:

Masjid Abu Bakr
Imam Karim Abu Zaid
2071 South Parker Road
Denver, CO 80231
Phone: 303-696-9800
Email: denvermosque@yahoo.com

I’m sure they would be delighted to hear from you. Frankly, I’m terribly disappointed that not a SINGLE musloid here in the United States has made ANY attempt to rape and behead me. But maybe I haven’t made myself clear enough, so let me do that right now.

I will NEVER, EVER, EVER submit to islam. I will fight islam with every fiber of my being for as long as I live because islam is pure satanic evil. If you are really serious about islam dominating the United States and the world, you are going to have to come through me. You are going to have to kill me. Good luck with that. And understand that if you or some of your musloid boyfriends do actually manage to kill me, The Final Crusade will officially commence five minutes later, and then, despite your genetic mental retardation, you will be made to understand with crystal clarity what the word “defeat” means. Either way, I win, so come and get it.

Deo adjuvante non timendum (with the help of God there is nothing to be afraid of).

The Man Has No Shame


Obama campaign selling ‘birther’ T-shirts
By Jordan Fabian – The Hill – May 18, 2011
President Obama’s campaign team is trying to capitalize on claims that he was not born in the United States.
His campaign is now selling T-shirts emblazoned with his face above the slogan “Made in the U.S.A.” On the back is an image of his birth certificate. The fundraising pitch says the shirt is a “limited-edition” item.
Obama released his long-form birth certificate last month to prove he was born in Hawaii after billionaire businessman Donald Trump cast doubt on the authenticity of the his birth certificate.

Obama Birth Certificate Press Appearance

[youtube=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bnYJI4QTpXs]
[Note his rapid eye blinking. Note also he took no questions from the press.]
True to his nature, Obama is in full scapegoating mode.
He blames everyone but himself for what he calls “distractions” from the real issues and problems of our country.
Without explicitly identifying the birthers, he calls liars those U.S. citizens who only ask to see his original long-form birth certificate instead of an online image of a secondary document, the COLB. Obama calls us vulgar “carnival barkers” in “side shows” who “just make stuff up and pretend that facts are not facts”.
Obama, you are the carnival barker, the 3-ring circus master.
By refusing to produce your long-form birth crtificate for more than two years, you are responsible for the “distractions” and the “side shows”. And if is you who could have prevented the court martial, conviction and imprisonment of a righteous man, Bronze Star-recipient Army surgeon Dr. Terry Lakin, if you had produced the birth certificate sooner.
Shame on you!

Tolerant S.F. Liberals Attack Man With "Impeach Obama" Sign

It never ceases to amaze me how hypocritical Liberals are. They portray themselves as champions of “tolerance” and “diversity,” but the truth is the Left are not just intolerant of opposing opinions and beliefs, they are downright vicious and violent.
Remember the recent death threats against Conservatives by leading Libs and Democrats, against birthers, and against Sarah Palin?
And the next time some lib blather on about “right wing violence,” remind them of that video made by the 10-10 environmental group in which those who wouldn’t conform to the Global Warmists were blown up into a bloody pulp. First launched as a commercial to exhort the people of the world to reduce our carbon emissions, the group quickly withdrew the commercial when it was received by the public with a mixture of incredulity and horror. Every time you find yourself wondering what’s in the hearts of the Left, watch this video again. In the darkness of their hearts, this is what the Left really want to do to dissenters — you know, those stupid redneck conservative Christians who “cling to their guns and Bibles”!
H/t beloved fellow Tina!

Ben Johnson of Floyd Reports, April 6, 2011:
Calling for the impeachment of Barack Obama is not only a lonely and thankless task, it can also be a dangerous one. San Francisco’s CBS affiliate is reporting two people attacked a 29-year-old man holding an “Impeach Obama” sign on Monday morning in the city’s North Panhandle district. Eyewitnesses say the man peacefully protested on Fell Street when a man and woman ripped the man’s sign, threw his anti-Obama literature on the ground, and stomped on his hand.
The CBS station says San Francisco police originally reported the incident as an attack on an Obama supporter.

Initial police accounts had indicated that the man had a sign supporting  Obama, but witnesses later said it was an anti-Obama sign…
A man and woman approached the victim, tore the sign and shook the  table, causing the political literature to fall to the ground. The attackers also kicked the man in the hand, [Police Captain Denis] O’Leary said.
…The witness, Wayne Friday, a former San Francisco police commissioner  and local journalist, said he was stopping by the Bank of America at  Fell and Broderick streets and saw a sign that read “Impeach Obama” with  a picture of the president with a Hitler mustache.
The two attackers, who had dogs with them, fled south on Broderick  Street before officers arrived, and hadn’t been located, O’Leary said.

The SFPD is reportedly baffled by who would do such a thing:

The victim said the pair made “no mention of a political affiliation,”  O’Leary said. “It’s just unusual that they took offense to him and his sign.”

Yeah, I couldn’t imagine their political affiliation. Undoubtedly, it is only a matter of time before the media pin the beat down on a rogue member of the San Francisco Tea Party….
The fact is left-wingers are not above operating with the tactics of the brownshirts. They continually incite violence against their political foes, while simultaneously presenting their foes as the font of all political violence. Their tempers remain on a perpetual hair-trigger because they listen only to fellow left-wingers and one-sided media coverage of the violent, evil, racist, misogynist, anti-Semitic, Islamophobic, heterosexist, speciesist hatemongers who make up the conservative movement.
It was only a matter of time until that demonization and anger boiled over.
As of this writing police are still trying to find the  attackers. Witnesses described the pair as an “Asian” male (presumably East Asian: Japanese, Chinese, or Korean) “who was wearing a gray baseball    cap, gray sweatshirt and dark jeans” and a white woman “about 5 feet 6 inches tall with long, curly brown hair.” The SFPD asks anyone who may have information about the perpetrators to call the anonymous tip line at (415) 575-4444 or send a tip by text message to TIP411.

Even Chris Matthews Now Thinks There's No Birth Certificate

The Obama birth certificate imbroglio is getting embarassing even for his leftwing supporters. Take, for example, MSNBC’s “Hardball” host Chris Matthews, who had exulted in 2008 that listening to The Fraud’s speak gave him “a thrill up his leg” — a thrill that “I don’t have that too often.”
Matthews never misses an opportunity to trash and bash “birthers,” one time even announcing he is the “enemy of birthers.” Of late, even Matthews has said he thinks Obama should release his birth certificate. On January 31, 2011, Matthews went one step further. He now admits that the online, computer-generated image of a Certification of Live Birth (COLB) from Hawaii — which is a secondary document presumably generated from a presumed primary long-form birth certificate — is the only document Obama has.
In other words, Matthews is saying there is no Obama long-form birth certificate! — which is what new Hawaii Governor Neil Abercrombie said(before he changed his story), what a friend of Abercrombie (Mike Evans) said on radio (before he changed his story), and what former Hawaii elections chief clerk Tim Adams said in an affidavit. [See HERE]
In the video below, Matthews first points out that the long-form birth certificates (LFBC) — which he slyly dubs “old school” to suggest the LFBC are antiquated and therefore superfluous and unnecessary — have all sorts of signatures and writing on them. Then Matthews says:

“Now you have the new kind which is a digital thing, printed out. The president has produced this new kind. It’s been fine for him … He doesn’t have the other kind apparently.”

[youtube=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UGnWUjR0icg&feature=player_embedded]
None of which means that Chris Matthews or anyone on the Left will stop bashing “birthers” even when we “birthers” are proven right. They will defend the Fraud until the end. Remember what my looney-left friend Stephanie once exclaimed out of pure frustration when I pointed out certain inconvenient facts:

“I’ve made up my mind! Don’t confuse me with facts!”

Last Monday night, Dec. 27, during his MSNBC “Hardball” program, Chris “tingle-up-my-leg” Matthews joined the rising chorus of voices calling on Obama to silence those pesky “birthers” once and for all by releasing his original long-form birth certificate.
Nor is Matthews an isolated voice. Joining him were Clarence Page of the Chicago Tribune and David Corn of Mother Jones, both of whom agreed with Matthews’ call for Obama to publicly release the document, which to this point has remained tightly under wraps.
Matthews, et al., are responding to newly elected Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie, a Democrat and fervent Obama supporter, who inadvertently re-ignited the birther controversy when he vowed to put an end to the “birthers” once and for all. 
As reported by Jim Meyers of NewsMax in Chris Matthews: Obama Should Release Birth Certificate,” Dec. 29, 2010:

Even MSNBC’s pro-Obama host Chris Matthews has joined the crowd calling on the president to release his long-form birth certificate to settle the controversy surrounding his birthplace once and for all, saying “if it exists, why not put it out?”
Matthews has been critical of the so-called “birthers” who insist that Obama was not born in the United States and therefore is ineligible to be president. Some say he was actually born in Kenya, his father’s home country.
The majority of Americans discount that conspiracy theory. Hawaii state officials insist he was born on the tropical isles, and a legal ad taken out in a local newspaper announcing Obama’s birth days after he was born supports that claim.
Still, many find it interesting that Obama has continued to refuse to release his long-form birth certificate, and Obama joins just a handful of presidents who have no declared place of birth as a significant national landmark.
Instead, during the 2008 campaign, Obama’s aides issued a “certification of live birth,” a summary document that does not include the name of the hospital where he was born or the physician who delivered him, information that would be included on the long-form birth certificate.
Newly elected Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie, a Democrat, re-ignited the birther controversy when he said he would ask the state attorney general’s office and health officials how he can make public more of Obama’s birth documentation from Aug. 4, 1961.
Obama easily could release the document himself or ask state officials to do so.
During Matthews’ “Hardball” program on Monday night, the MSNBC hosted cited a New York Times poll from April that found that only 58% of respondents believe Obama was born in the United States, while 20% believe he was not, and 23% are unsure.
“I am not a birther,” Matthews declared. “I am an enemy of the birthers.”  But he held up the long-form birth certificate of someone who was born the day before Obama, and compared it with the shorter version Obama has released, which to the birthers, he said, “is evidence that he really ain’t one of us.
“Why has the president himself not demanded that they put out the official document?” Matthews said. “Why doesn’t the governor just say, snap it up, whoever’s there at the department of records, send me a copy right now? Why doesn’t the president just say, send me a copy right now? Why doesn’t [White House press secretary Robert] Gibbs and [senior adviser David] Axelrod say, let’s just get this crappy story dead? Why not do it? The department out there just said the other day that there is such a thing. It exists. The original document of his birth is available. They have it in storage, they said. And if it exists, why not put it out? Will there be any harm done by releasing the original document?”
…Obama’s critics — many of whom don’t buy in the birther theory he was born outside the United States — still note a pattern of secrecy surrounding much of Obama’s life before he entered politics. They note that Obama never has unveiled many key documents that presidential candidates released to the press and public.
For example:

  • During the presidential campaign, Obama released just one brief document detailing his personal health, while GOP opponent John McCain released what he said was his complete medical file totaling more than 1,500 pages. The Obama campaign eventually released some routine lab-test results and electrocardiograms for Obama.
  • Obama refused to offer his official papers as a state legislator in Illinois and did not produce correspondence, such as letters from lobbyists and other information, from his days in the Illinois State Senate.
  • Obama did not release his client list as an attorney or his billing records.
  • Obama declined to release his college records from Occidental College, where he studied for two years before transferring to Columbia University.
  • Obama’s campaign refused to give Columbia University, where he earned an undergraduate degree in political science, permission to release his transcripts. Such transcripts would list the courses Obama took, and his grades.
  • Obama’s college dissertation, reportedly titled “Soviet Nuclear Disarmament,” has disappeared from Columbia’s archives.
  • Obama did not agree to the release of his application to the Illinois state bar, which would clear up intermittent allegations that his application to the bar may have been inaccurate.
  • Obama has not released records from his time at Harvard Law School.
  • During his campaign for president, Obama promised he would make his White House “the most open and transparent administration in history.”

Yes, indeed. Inquiring minds want to know:
Why won’t Obama release his long-form birth certificate and his other documents (listed above) and, thereby, shut us “birthers”  Obama truth-seekers once and for all? Umm?
What is he hiding?
The United States Justice Foundation is heading a drive to demand the incoming 112th Congress to open an investigation into Obama’s eligibility. Go HERE for more information!
