Yet another chapter in the reality vs. fakeality story

An update on the reality vs manufactured reality thing:

A woman named “Ellie Light” has written letters to the editor supporting Barack Obama. A lot of letters. Well, more like the same letter a bunch of times. Like in 42 different newspapers in 18 states.

And at the end of each letter she lists some address that’s within the geographic range of those newspapers.

Astroturf, anyone?

Actually, the fact that these were the same letters sent over and over again by someone with the same name seems to suggest that either Ellie Light is a real person and she just wasn’t quite savvy enough to change her name (along with her address) for every letter, or the government agents in charge of this stuf didn’t think anyone would catch on.

And ya know, there’s just something about the name Ellie Light that makes me wonder…it almost sounds like a code name, or a joke…or at least some kind of anagram. Or does L. E. Light mean something?

I suppose now the propaganda guys will have to disguise themselves better. But I hope they don’t. It’s kind of fun to find stuf like this, kinda like finding the Easter Eggs on Lost or something.

Hmmmm…….legit helli?…the legil il?…heil git lel?…get hill lie?…ill lee thig?…hmmmm…..


Right-wing radio host an FBI snitch

November 30th Monday–

Remember a while back when I put up a post on this blog suggesting that maybe not everything we see is real?

Well, here’s an update on that subject.

Turns out the FBI was using a right wing radio host named Hal Turner as an informant.

I never heard of Hal Turner before. Apparently he’s your average hate spewing radio talk show host, with the usual invective against Jews, blacks, and of course, Barack Obama.

So, the FBI was getting information from Hal about his more extremist listeners. He also claims that they coached him on the limits of what he could say, which of course the FBI denies. Turner says that the FBI asked him specifically to criticize African-American leaders Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton.

The reason he’s being found out now is that he went just a teensy bit too far. After some Chicago judges upheld handgun bans, he posted some not-very-veiled threats against them on his blog:

“Let me be the first to say this plainly: These judges deserve to be killed. Their blood will replenish the tree of liberty.”

As if that wasn’t enough, he went on to post photos of the judges, their work phone numbers and office addresses as well as a map of the courthouse that pointed out “anti-truck bomb barriers”.

So, yeah, then he ends up in handcuffs. And he starts talking about his involvement with the FBI.

Now, that’s pretty out there. I’m all for free speech but if anyone had actually bombed the courthouse, I think he oughta get tried as an accessory to terrorism. I mean, just ask yourself what would happen to some unknown brown guy if he had put this stuff up on a blog. Yeah, that’s right, he’d be disappeared before you could say “Gitmo”.

So, we know of at least one media person in the employ of an arm of the government. Think he’s the only one? Do you think you know of anyone else on tv, the internet, radio, or wherever that’s maybe acting a part, or being given directions by someone else (government, church, political think tank, other) ? It doesn’t have to be someone who’s an informant like Hal, it could also be any person, celebrity or anonymous, who isn’t all they seem to be. I’d like to hear about it.

Just because sometimes we might need a reality check.
