when you fuck with people that are smarter that you.
Over the weekend, the right wing guys that were threatening to show up at peaceful protests and raise hell, the “Protest Warriors,” got their database hacked. I would normally never link to the “Free” Republic (where you can get banned so fast it’ll make your mouse jump) and Little Green Footballs, but the pained and outraged ignorance in both those places is truly… magnifique….
You can see LGF’s reaction here.
And the Free Republic thread here.
Apparently(?) there was a site defacement at www.protestwarrior.com, but it’s hard to say for sure. These guys aren’t very clear in their use of all this interweb-thingy lingo.
I am fairly ambivalent about the whole thing, but I must say, after reading the genocidal garbage that spews off of the pages of LGF and Freeper.com, I have about zero sympathy for them.
If you’re gonna be a brownshirt (by their own admission, “digital brownshirts“), then you better lock your doors at night. There are plenty of folks that take that kind of rhetoric seriously.
