article imageOp-Ed: The hijacking of 12160

By Alexander Baron     Jul 22, 2012 in Politics
The 12160 anti-New World Order website used to be a mine of information about police brutality and similar issues. Now it appears to have been hijacked by crazies.
The Mathaba website used to be of a similar high quality, but after the overthrow of Gaddafi, the people who write for it seem to have had some sort of mass apoplectic seizure. The same sort of thing appears to have happened recently to 12160. The website's slogan was and is Destroying the New World Order, a laudable goal if ever there was one.
Now, alas, its formerly high value critical content has been replaced by lurid conspiracy mongering by proselytes of the 9/11 Truth Movement, and, far worse, people who might be described as rabid anti-Semites, not simply by Abraham Foxman, who could find anti-Semitism in a bagel recipe, but by ordinary, rational human beings.
The 12160 website has also been a good source of material for this humble scribe, including this story about an individual who seeks high office in the Democratic Party. Alas, shortly after publishing it and trying to log onto 12160, this is what I saw.
You have been suspended  for publishing a rebuttal of lunatic ravings about 9/11.

That's right, banned. Isn't this supposed to be a site that opposes censorship, or is this a case of permissible opinions only? I sent the following message to the webmaster, but received no reply, not even a rude one.
A polite request to lift the suspension. Which was ignored.

Of course, it is one thing to ban someone from a website, and another to keep that person off, but like Groucho Marx, I wouldn't want to belong to a club that would accept someone like me as a member. I did though access the site from another computer, and here are some of the things I found.
The first example shows somebody needs to learn how to code properly. That and other things.
The second example is a review of a book. This is an interesting subject, and a book needs to be written on it, for certain. Unfortunately, Prince Of Fools David Ray Griffin is the last person to write it.
By the third link we are in the dark blue yonder. Among other things it includes a number of bogus quotes from the Talmud, and a classic Oprah Winfrey interview with a woman who is a) Jewish and b) mentally ill, as well as much other silliness. A credulous Oprah takes, or appears to take at face value, this woman's claims about the sacrificing of young babies. It doesn't appear to have occurred to her that the police might just have been interested if these claims had any basis in fact.
Last night, Saturday, I logged onto the site again, and here is what I found about the recent mass shooting in Denver. Yes, you guessed right, this was another false flag - staged is the word they used, but give it time.
It does appear though that at least one person has gone too far for 12160, as can be seen from the screengrab below. The J word, what could that be?

Someone else appears to have had an article pulled. Anyone like to hesitate a guess as to what is the J word alluded to?
Is there a point to all this? Of course, this is a website that supports, or professes to support, Ron Paul. What would the average Ron Paul supporter say about the Synagogue of Satan, or any of this other nonsense? Come to think of it, what would Ron Paul say? It is one thing to expose police brutality, the encroaching police state and the machinations of the Federal Reserve. It is quite another to marry that message with exaggerated claims about the power of International Zionism, fanciful tales of Talmudic/Satanic abuse, and endless drivel about 9/11 being an inside job.
If your message of individual liberty and debt-free money is tainted with lunacy, bigotry and worse, no one who matters will listen to you.
Perhaps that is the point?
