Wankers of the Week: Hacks, attacked

notw-hacks-our-boys.jpg

Crappy weekend everyone! My, the wankers just keep coming, do they not? And so do the revelations from the world of hacks who hack. And here, in no particular order, come some of the hackingest hacks, and the wankingest wanks…

1. The self-congratulatory “journalists” at News of the World. Yes, all of you. You make me sick, taking pride in being the most immoral and unethical bunch ever to disgrace an already ill-reputed profession. You were all more than happy to rely on hacked cellphones and bribed police to get your panty-sniffing “scoops”. You probably made much better money at it than any honest reporter in the alternative press. (Just ask Greg Palast what a struggle it is to live as a REAL journalist, ferreting out REAL scandals — the kind your filthy boss probably ordered you never to touch.) And now you’re bitter because you’ve been let go from the worst news organization in the world? Cry me a fucking river. If you were really such hot shit, you’d have left the instant you realized your bread was being buttered with graft and smears, and never looked back. Instead, you were all complicit to the end. You were happy to take Rupee’s money while you made hay on the misfortunes of murder victims and their families. And you apparently saw nothing wrong with it until the shit — that’s YOU — hit the fan. And now you’ve put your rag to bed for the final time without even an apology to the family of Milly Dowler? At long last, people — HAVE YOU NO FUCKING SHAME??? Oh yeah, that’s right…you’re not sorry because Rupee’s not sorry, either. What a bunch of fucking poodles you are! Which brings me to…

2. Rupert Fucking Murdoch. Yes, again. And now the scandal is widening to the families of 9-11 victims, too! There really is nothing sacred to the over-rich and over-powerful except, maybe, the almighty dollar. If nothing else, this should reassure the families of Milly Dowler and all those dead soldiers that they are not the only innocent, non-famous people to have been used and abused and spat out by Rupee for profit, eh? But what would really be a comfort to all of them, I’m sure, is if FUX Snooze went the same way as News of the Screws. Which could very well happen if the FBI turns up what I think it will. Here’s hoping…

PS: Yes, a libel lawsuit in New York looks damn good on him, too. Especially since the “facts” of the New York Post story were all made up, rather than the product of any kind of phone hack.

PPS: Oh, UGH! (Warning: Cannot be unseen!)

3. The fucking wingnut who created this very literal piece of trailer trash. Must be seen to be believed. Clicky the linky! (Warning: Cannot be unseen, either.)

4. Lori Fucking Klein. I don’t know what’s dumbest: Owning a gun, owning a PINK gun with no safety (because you’re such a fucking girly girl!), or aiming it at a reporter. Oh wait, I DO know what’s dumbest: Saying your Ruger pistol is “so cute”, and carrying it in your purse all the time. Because, you know, if someone shoots questions at your bigoted little overly-made-up girly-girl head and you’re too easily rattled to simply answer, the best thing to do is shoot first and ask questions later.

5. Patrick Fucking Brooks. If his facial tattoos are any indication, he’s a two-time murderer (two black tears by the outer corner of his right eye), and one with very poor judgment at that (the inscription on his forehead). Sorry, dude, but tattooing shit on your face doesn’t make your shaven head look any less like the dome of a dick. (Dick. Head. DICKHEAD. Geddit?)

6. Stephen Fucking Harper. To those who wonder if he looks as much like a knob dressed as an Indian as he did when duded up as a cowboy, the answer is NO. He looks even more like a knob:

harper-injun-fail.jpg

Meanwhile, his record on aboriginal peoples’ rights is still fucking abysmal. Hence he becomes Mr. Dressup, in a vain attempt to distract us all. Ain’t workin’!

7. The Fucking “National Association for Marriage”. (Note the quotes.) It’s not really marriage that they care about, or they’d spend more time tending to their own and leaving others alone. No, it’s all about killing the queers. And they’ve finally made their agenda visible as such, and linked it to the Teabag Party. Nice to see them all coming out of the closet as eliminationists, eh?

8. Joe Fucking Arpaio. He’s not racist, but his pink underwear is. Thanks for clearing that up, Amurrica’s Worst Fucking Sheriff.

9. Erica Fucking Jong. No, dear, sex isn’t passé. (And your generation didn’t invent it, either.) If you want your theses, or at least your name, to stay relevant, it might be worthwhile to stay abreast of sex in the real world, not just wallow in a morass of half-baked theories swirling around your head.

10. Michele Fucking Bachmann, again. She can dish it out, but she can’t take it? Surprise! Meet Quitbull 2.0. And speaking of Quitbull…

palin-fos.jpg

11. Sarah Fucking Palin, again. She “can win in 2012”, but she hasn’t even decided IF she’s going to run yet? I guess she’s trying to change her image from Quitbull to Mrs. Dithers. PS: Hey Sawah, if you can win, how come you lost the last federal election, where you were only the VP candidate? PS: Look who inherited the dithering gene from her mother. Kinda sorta.

12. Linda Fucking Harvey. Wow, talk about creative! She figured out a way to combine homophobia, wacky superstition, and union-busting — all in one big fugly package of willful misinterpretation! Now, if only she could learn how to découpage…and STFU.

13. Raymond Fucking Wieczorek. Birth control is a “party”? Hardly. It’s ordinary, mundane, daily, bread-and-butter stuff, no more party-like than brushing your teeth. Unwanted pregnancy, on the other hand, is like a jail sentence. But what would a man (who is totally sexually unappealing) know about that?

14. Laura Fucking Fotusky. She had to choose between doing her job…and being superstitious and presumptuous. She chose the latter. Well, GOOD. Because by refusing to perform same-sex marriages (newly legal in New York) on grounds of religion, she freed the job up for some willing soul who’s actually QUALIFIED to do it! Now, if she could only do so without a parting sermon. THAT was the wank.

israel-collective-punishment.jpg

15. The Fucking Knesset. You know you’re losing the war when you haul out the big guns to kill the mosquitoes. And their anti-boycott law is just that: the Big Bertha of free-speech repression. Israel may call itself the only democracy in the Middle East, but at the rate everything’s going, it’s going to end up being the only dictatorship.

16. James Fucking Moore. What kind of Canadian heritage minister thinks cutting an actual Canadian heritage’s budgetary allotment by 5% is a good idea? One from the Harper Government™, who else? After all, they are NOT the Government of Canada. What does it matter to them if Canada is further starved of honest, unbiased information?

17. John Robert Fucking Mester. What a coinkydink…his name rhymes with “pester”. Or “horse molester”. Because that’s exactly what he is…and a serial one, at that. Ugh!

18. Darnell Fucking Hardware. Yes, that’s his real name…and yes, he’s really a wanker. Of the most literal kind. The kind that trolls the subways, looking for women to jack off on. How appropriate, then, that this other serial molester got caught with DNA evidence taken from his own jack-off, eh?

repug-survival-suit.jpg

19. The Fucking Republican Party of Wisconsin. Yes, the entire party…because they are all complicit in a dirty scheme to try to sow confusion by planting fake Democratic candidates in a state where everything with an R after its name is now in trouble, thanks to the teabagger governor and his ugly henchmen. And those henchmen are…the Fucking Republican Party of Wisconsin, who else?

20. Sun Fucking Media. Yes, folks, the Sun newspaper chain (Canada’s MurdochCo., in case you wonder) has finally dropped all its false fronts of being a legitimate news purveyor, and has withdrawn from the Ontario Press Council, because it just can’t meet its “politically correct” standards. And by “politically correct”, read “committed to accurate, unbiased and BS-free information”. Bravo, Sun Crapaganda Corp.! Finally, a rare moment of honesty from you. Now, all we need is to see you saying, on the front page, in bold type, what we already know to be true: “WE’RE JUST MAKING ALL OF THIS SHIT UP BECAUSE NEITHER WE NOR OUR NUTTY RIGHT-WING READERS CAN FACE REALITY!!!”

21. Eric Fucking Bolling. In his haste to exculpate Dubya from all blame for things that happened on his watch, he developed a mysterious case of amnesia where 9-11 is concerned. (The August 6 PDB? Didn’t happen either, and neither did Dubya’s response to the CIA briefer who fed it to him.)

22. The Fucking Tea Party, alias the Republican Party. Yes, all of the teabaggers and Repugs out there, with no exceptions, because they are all one and the same. Once more, the hypocrisy of libertarianism shows its socially conservative ass. Turns out, it’s “liberty for me, but none for thee”, as usual; why else the anti-choice laws? Oh yeah, sure, it’s all about the taxes. Riiiiiiiight. Funny how wingnut tax cuts always come on the backs of those most vulnerable.

palin-movie-premieres.jpg

23. Barry Fucking Ardolf. Good thing he’s going to jail for 18 years, so I can wank-list him without fear. Otherwise, I’d be terrified of him trying to hack me and wreak who knows what havoc, like he did to his neighbors.

24. Herman Fucking Cain. The latest Uncle Tom to emerge from the Teabagger Party thinks that the freedom of religion doesn’t apply to Muslims…and that in the name of “freedom of religion” (note the quotes), Muslims must be barred from building their houses of worship anywhere in the US, even if it’s nowhere fucking NEAR Ground Zero. Because he’s afraid of a nonexistent plot to replace the law of the land with Sharia, didn’t ya know?

25. Rebekah Fucking Brooks. Oh, BARF:

“Rupert’s wisdom, kindness and incisive advice has guided me throughout my career and James is an inspirational leader who has shown me great loyalty and friendship,” she said.

Once more, with feeling: Oh, BARF!

26. Chris Fucking Brown. Homophobia and misogyny aside (and why SHOULD they be set aside? Those are some serious character flaws there!), a violent piece of shit who wouldn’t even be a “singer” if not for lip-syching and autotune deserves NO respect. Much less a crowd of 18,000 fellow wankers with piss-poor taste in music.

27. Sara Fucking Roseberry. If you ever wonder what drugs those crazy bible thumpers are on, now I can tell you the definitive answer. It’s crystal meth, otherwise known as Hitler’s drug of choice. (His doctor used to shoot him up before every rally where he had to give a sermon, er, speech. Not kidding. And the drug was also given to his armies.)

28. Anthony Fucking Garcia. What a wanker — LITERALLY. He shot his wad in a cup of yogurt, then pushed it on a woman shopping in the grocery store where he was handing out free samples. And yes, the worst happened, and she spat it out. The story’s gross, but the comments at the link are often priceless. Free sample:

yogurt-semen-comments.jpg

(I’ll spare you the rest.)

29. Rupert Fucking Murdoch. Too fucking little, too fucking late. How about apologizing not only to the family of Milly Dowler, but also to the families of all the soldiers killed from the Falklands War onwards? Because this right-wing media cheerleading has led to a lot more deaths, and the hacking of the dead soldiers’ phones is far from being the only crime Rupee has committed here.

30. Adrian Fucking Lamo. Yes, he’s been listed here before…and he should be considered a lifetime member of this infamous list by now. Because not only did he turn in Bradley Manning, he specifically LIED to him, promising confidentiality to get the latter to spill his guts, only to snitch on him. And if you think what Lamo did was A-okay and that Manning “deserved” what he got, here’s what one of the commenters on the article had to say about the matter: “I have 3 active duty service members in my immediate family, two of whom are on their umpteenth millionth redeploy to that sh*thole that is Afghanistan. They’re also Marines. Their take on this: Whatever gets us the fuck out of here fastest is OK by me.”And here’s another: “I have family in the military. Being obediant and going along with a government who could give fu*k all about their lives is worse for them than the radical changes transparency like this leak may bring. I dont know what world you live, but in mine the US government has fought numerous wars of choice, killing hundreds of thousands of people, costing trillions of dollars. The US government acts directly in contrast to the will or interest of the people. Anything somebody does to bring that to light has my support.” Isn’t it funny how those who one would think SHOULD be crying “treason” the loudest, those with military members in the family…aren’t? Adrian Fucking Lamo, for all his talk of patriotism, treason and the like, somehow never got around to entering military service, yet he’s perfectly willing to let US soldiers and foreign civilians die for lies, lies and more lies. Draw your own conclusions as to who’s the bigger patriot.

And finally, to Jake Fucking Pearson, who left both the above carefully gilded turds in my spam filter. Stupid hasbaroid motherfucker’s so dumb he can’t even spell his own last name…or thinks I can’t tell it’s really him. Sorry, but I can; the Briticisms and the bullying and the sexist insults, taken in combination, are all a dead giveaway. Now you know why he landed there, and why everything else of his is there to stay. PS: This impotent drivelling, which landed in my spam filter during his last previous foray here, is also his handiwork. Thought I’d resurrect it so you could all enjoy a good laugh at Jakey’s expense…AGAIN.

Good night, Jakey — and please, for the sake of your sanity, TRY to get fucked!

    THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH, ‘Bina, for showing me that I was the butt of one of this moron’s intellectual diarrhea attacks. On second thought, I take that back. I feel honored that shit-for-brains couldn’t come up with something more original. He must have had his thesaurus in his hands (no, I won’t go there) because he actually used some of ’em ‘air 3 sillyball wards and some Latin words, too.
    Now back to the other Wankers:

    #2. You could have made your warning a little stronger, like: “This picture can put images in your head that can never be erased and will have long-lasting effects on your mental stability. You may need counseling if you look.”

    #3. Even this was not as bad as #2.

    #6. I always knew that most Conservatards were closet cases. This picture proves it. Where did he get it? From the Village People?

    #17. EEEYYYWWWW!!!

    • Sabina Becker says:

      Jim, he didn’t get the war bonnet from the Village People. He got it from actual Blood Indians. But someone on Facebook deciphered the colors of the war paint on his face, and the meanings of them are NOT flattering! Yellow apparently means things like sickness and old bones, and red means violence…I think. Gotta look that up again.

  2. rerewo says:

    Antisemitism has unfortunately played an unashamedly influential role throughout society in the Middle East, for a long time — as if hatred of Jews was somehow a universally accepted birthright.

    It’s a passion over there that’s been stoked, unfortunately, partly because it’s useful to the real tyrants and dictators, in helping to deflect the feelings of injustice and disappointment the people they govern oppressively and incompetently have toward them, onto Israel. It’s no longer working so well, of course, as recent uprisings have demonstrated.

    A majority of Palestinians did freely elect Hamas to govern them; however, there’s an important ingredient missing in their democracy that prevents its proper functioning — freedom of thought and expression in the same sense that we have of it. For instance, Palestinians have the freedom to extol antisemitism and martyrdom for hateful causes. but it’s dangerous for them to say no to antisemitism and no to martyrdom for hateful causes. The impression I have is that, for many Palestinians, hatred of Jews and suicide as a means of expressing it are becoming a staple of their political diet from cradle to grave.

    If we, over here in Canada, and they, Israelis, in the Middle East were subjected to a diet like that from cradle to grave, I’d expect the same result and same dysfunctional society.

    Israel is really up against it in the Middle East.

    They’ve had to understandably take extreme measures to deal with the madness this hatred has created. And, just like every other country in this world, that defends itself, they don’t always get it right.

    But to post a cartoon that tries to draw a parallel with how Israel is trying to defend itself, with how the Nazis indiscriminately murdered Jews — is very disappointing. I couldn’t disagree with that cartoon and your choice to include it, more strongly.

    I certainly can agree with you about boycotts. It’s one thing to mischievously use a boycott to drive a competitor out of business or mischievously use it to simply harm another for the sport of it. There should be laws in the general sense to deal with it, and if there aren’t, they should be drawn up, sure. It’s another thing altogether to entitle the target of a boycott, in all circumstances, including just causes, to receive compensation. It’s like shooting mosquitoes with cruise missiles. It suppresses freedom of expression and only further disarms the citizenry. With laws like that Israel is only becoming what it is defending itself against.

    • Sabina Becker says:

      Well, here’s where we disagree, and why:

      Our media like to present the story in a very slanted fashion. Poor brave little Israel, the only democracy in the Middle East, standing up to all those scary, hateful Arabs who are just waiting to pounce on it, with scimitars drawn!

      But let’s face it, if that were true, those wicked Arab neighbors would all have banded together long ago, citing “defence of the Palestinians”, or even “self-defence” as justification, and bombed Israel to smithereens with all those pricey warplanes and missiles the US and its gloriously amoral military-industrial complex furnished them. They had an opportunity to do just that around 1967. And we all know who won that one…in one mere week. And who came out with tons more stolen territory as a result.

      Meanwhile, this valiant little “democracy” is being built on the backs of dead and displaced Arabs, whom Israeli children are being openly taught to hate and fear. So much so that Israeli schoolgirls sign bombs (symbolically “addressed” to Hamas leaders, but actually intended to kill Gazans no matter who they are). A couple of weeks ago, I used a picture of Israeli schoolgirls doing just that, which was taken a few years ago; I see you made no objection to that, even though it casts Israel in an awful light. Reminds me more than a little of how certain kids were taught to chant certain hateful slogans, back in a certain time and place.

      And just today, one of the last few Arab-Israeli members of the Knesset, Hanin Zuabi, was stripped of her right to participate equally in said “democracy”, precisely because she dared to protest. What kind of democracy robs its own freely elected parliamentarians of their voices? (I can think of one, but I’m not allowed to name it openly, for fear of being branded something terrible, which I’m not.)

      Israel isn’t actually “defending” itself, it’s attacking offensively, grabbing ever bigger swaths of territory not only from Palestine, but from its neighbors, and has been since 1948. Palestinians refer to its founding as a state as the Nakba, the Disaster, because that is precisely what it meant to them. The 1967 Six-Day War is called the Naksa, or Setback — again, because that is what it was. It’s been framed as an existential threat to Israel, but the existential threat to local Arabs is much more real. Even people who have never hurled an insult at a single Jew were and are still being driven from lands where their families had lived and farmed productively for centuries; there have been murders, relentless bombings, shellings, literal terrorism. They have no adequate defences against this. A few crummy Hamas squibs that seldom hit their marks, an occasional suicide bomber who does only limited, localized damage, and some kids throwing rocks at Israeli tanks; that’s it. What violence they do is pitiful compared to what gets done to them. The Gaza Strip and the West Bank have become the human equivalent of cattle corrals. Walls get built, guard towers installed, and sewage sludge from Israel gets pumped onto Palestinian farm fields — and no, not as fertilizer! Adequate supplies don’t get in, people can’t get out to work at their jobs in other cities because the Israeli military keeps setting up more “checkpoints”, sanitation is poor, overcrowding is pushing limited resources to the breaking point. All of this is deliberate and calculated. All that’s needed now is a cholera outbreak, and it will be game over. Then Israel can wash its hands of the whole affair, so to speak, and claim it was the fault of those dirty Arabs for being so, well, DIRTY…

      Meanwhile, settlers keep inching in illegally and building on the best portions of what’s left of Palestine while the right-wing government won’t lift a finger any more to wag it at them; the illicit expropriations are tacitly condoned, as were the bulldozing deaths of Rachel Corrie and Tom Hurndall; those were meant to serve as warnings to anyone who dared to dissent, just as surely as public hangings in you-know-where.

      Sure, there’s no gas chamber (yet), and the cartoon says as much. That point is very clearly and judiciously made. But when you factor in the white phosphorus bombings of Gaza during Operation Cast Lead, it’s an open air gas chamber, de facto. White phosphorus is an illegal weapon because of the horrendous, indiscriminate damage it does (especially when inhaled), but it was deployed against Gaza, and that makes Israel a perpetrator of war crimes. The old cry of “antisemitism” and the “need” to “defend” against it no longer serve to justify what’s going on over there, which is in fact a species of ethnic cleansing. If anyone but Israel were doing it, the word GENOCIDE would be stamped all over it in an instant by our compliant media.

      Your response, much as I hate to say this, is a conditioned one, and it’s one that I used to have myself, not so long ago. I can sympathize because I see that you’re not at the tipping point yet. Everyone reaches the tipping point in their own way and time. I can only make my case; you have to decide when enough’s enough for you. But I will say this: When even Holocaust survivors like Hajo Meyer and Hedy Epstein are drawing this painful parallel, it might just be time to listen to them, and start questioning the prevailing narrative. I have chosen to listen, question, and form new conclusions.

      You still want to think the best of this, as I once did, and I don’t blame you for that. Nor do I believe you’re a fool or a troll. Your other responses here have always been on point, so I know you are thoughtful enough to think this one through. But I must confess I outgrew that “self-defence” narrative at the same time as I saw pictures of the shelling of Gaza. That was when my blinders came off for good.

      Your last sentence was correct: Israel is indeed becoming what it *claims* to be defending itself against. Actually, it’s just about there. The voices of those who want a just peace, on both sides, are being drowned out — and in many cases, actively gagged — by those who don’t want justice OR peace. But by now, everything Hamas has done wrong (and you’re right, there was plenty) has been utterly eclipsed by Israel. The only thing wrong with the cartoon (which was drawn by a Brazilian socialist who hates no one) is that it’s too prophetic.

      But if the parallels keep being drawn, maybe it’s because the objective conditions for doing so already exist. It all comes down to the simple question of how much further things have to go before everyone else loses their blinders and sees them, too.
