Morning Maddow: It’s Anonymous Versus ‘ISIS’ In Battle Of The Nerds (Video)

Rachel's doing her 'splainer gestures a lot tonight
Monday, somebody claiming to be affiliated with ISIS — or at least friendly to them — briefly took over social media accounts for the Pentagon’s Central Command, and posted some stupid threatening-sounding stuff about jihad, as well as a bunch of documents they claimed were classified, but were actually publicly available information. No real security breach, but weird and scary. Read more on Morning Maddow: It’s Anonymous Versus ‘ISIS’ In Battle Of The Nerds (Video)…

Anonymous Very Definitely Identifies Police Officer In Michael Brown Shooting, Or Maybe Not. Who Can Say?

This is probably shopped. You can tell from the pixels
The hacktivist group Anonymous claimed this morning that it had identified the Ferguson, Missouri, police officer who shot Michael Brown to death on Saturday, but the St Louis County Police Department stated that Anonymous had the wrong name; as of right now, the Twitter account that released the information has been suspended. So here’s how it shook out: Read more on Anonymous Very Definitely Identifies Police Officer In Michael Brown Shooting, Or Maybe Not. Who Can Say?…

Ferguson PD Embraces Equality by Arresting Reporters of All Races

bright lights
On Wednesday night, the police in Ferguson, Missouri, wanted everyone to clear out of the local McDonald’s, which had turned into a makeshift media center with reporters charging their phones and using the wifi to file stories about the protests only a few blocks away. When officers ordered all the patrons to leave, Washington Post reporter Wesley Lowery made two fateful missteps: he did not snap to and flee immediately and furthermore would not stop running his pesky camera.

God-Appointed Sheriff Lady Will Bring Down This Government Her Own Self

one woman army
Remember Operation American Spring? Back in May a couple hundred of them arrived in Washington, vowing to maintain a daily protest until Barack Obama, Joe Biden, Mitch McConnell, John Boehner, Harry Reid, and Nancy Pelosi were forced to abandon their offices. They were mighty, even if they didn’t quite make the 10 million to 30 million attendance mark they’d predicted. But they did at least get Obama to resign, didn’t they?

Brad Pitt Should Not Make Movie About Steubenville Rape, Because

Great news, everyone! Brad Pitt wants to make a movie about the awful terrible no good very bad ordeal frequently referred to as the Steubenville rape. (Can it please be starring Brad Pitt? Please? We hope so because mmmmmmm, Brad Pitt.) This seems like a really great idea, because there are not a lot of movies about rape and rape culture and how when sportsball stars, like the Steubenville rapists, commit acts of rape, more often than not, their friends and coaches and schools and communities tend to protect and defend them because SPORTSBALL!, while demanding that the whore who was just begging to be raped apologize to everyone for getting herself raped and also ruining the “promising futures” of those sportsball stars, what with her being raped by them. This is a issue, an epidemic, if you will, so it is a Good Thing that someone would like to tell that story and bring more attention to it and make it a “not cool” way to react to rape and raping. Right? Apparently not, according to Think Progress: Read more on Brad Pitt Should Not Make Movie About Steubenville Rape, Because…

Anonymous Claims It Stopped Karl Rove From Hacking The Election By Hacking ORCA, We Think

Oh cool, Anonymous (we think it is Anonymous?) says Karl Rove was gonna vote fraud all the Machines, and that’s why he was so flabbergasted and refused to believe it when Fox called Ohio for Bamz, but they stopped him from stealing all the Machines by jamming up ORCA, because it was not actually a GOTV system but a “steal the vote” system, but they stopped him, we are pretty sure that is what the following letter, which we guess is from Anonymous probably, says. Seems legit! But here is our question! If Anonymous hacked ORCA and caused it to explode miserably on Election Day, how could Anonymous ever prove that ORCA was actually a vote-thieving program? If they hacked in, couldn’t they have planted code to make it look like Rove was gonna fraud the election? (Not that we believe for a second that Rove wasn’t trying to fraud the election, we are just saying, it seems like “logic.”) Read more on Anonymous Claims It Stopped Karl Rove From Hacking The Election By Hacking ORCA, We Think…

America Stuck With All These Guy Fawkes Masks, We Guess

As this photo from our #OWS correspondent KenLayIsAlive makes clear, the guys with the Guy Fawkes masks are well represented at Occupy Wall Street and many other Protest Occupations around the country. The cultural trajectory of this mask is sometimes hard to follow, but here’s our attempt to explain it, and also explain why it creeps us out.

Government Seizes All of Glenn Beck’s Precious Gold

An activist California judge legislating from the bench has frozen the assets of Superior Gold Group, one of many NASCAR gold coin dealers who advertise The Solution to Weimar Hyper Inflation on Glenn Beck’s satanic teevee program. According to lawyers, Superior Gold Group “took payments from customers and never provided the gold ordered, charged prices much higher than fair market value and misled customers into buying expensive specialty coins.” Whoops. And now the authorities have seized all of Superior Gold’s delicious gold. FDR really is snatching up all the gold! (Oh, fuck!)

Unemployed Succubus Christine O’Donnell Hates Unemployed People

Outspoken fraud Christine O’Donnell hosted a fabulous Pearl Harbor Party at “a Chinese restaurant in Virginia” last night, and hundreds of white people came to hear her vomit lies and Lo Mein. (Nasty old Teabaggers love this lady, because she makes their penises tingle. And Christine loves them back, because they gave her millions of dollars, much of which she kept for herself to buy Chinese food.) Between mouthfuls of Kung Pao Chicken Innards, Christine warned against extending jobless benefits, which she called a “tragedy,” and “what the Nazis did to the Jews, at Pearl Harbor.” This might confuse you, since Christine O’Donnell doesn’t have a job. But who needs a job when you have a book deal and a PAC? Good grief.

Who Will Stop America’s Real Terrorists?!

The Fox affiliate in Los Angeles apparently has the greatest local news show in the world, if this insane Investigative Feature is indicative of the general awesomeness. Meet America’s domestic terrorists, some dudes who bug the fuck out of people on the Interwebs. Or, more accurately, meet the victims — the victims who suffered so tragically, like when the one kid found gay porn all over his myspace page and then his only girlfriend ever broke up with him. Why did the terrorists do it? Just for the lulz. Anonymous on Fox 11 [Fox 11] Read more on Who Will Stop America’s Real Terrorists?!…
