Biting the Hand that Feeds You

There’s been a lot of activity about a certain paranoid lefty’s webpage, which is motivating people to go out and vote (though probably not in the way they wanted).

The ‘whois’ of the page is shielded behind some anonymous registration hocus-pocus, but one name stands prominently in the source code. Just in case anyone was curious, it seems that the belongs sculptor/’artist’ Richard Serra. The “Stop Bush” Abu-Ghraib painting is most certainly one of his.

Oddly enough, Richard Serra’s name is already on the White House‘s website. Illegal profiling of dissidents, you ask? Perhaps a McCarthyist blacklist of suspected thoughtcriminals, compiled by John AshKKKroft? Not quote. It’s actually a transcript of a speech made by Laura Bush, praising the purchase of one of Richard Serra’s sculptures to the (presumably State-funded) Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth.

Now, I’m not one to espouse kooky conspiracy theories, but this looks fishy to me. You’ve got a ridiculously overwrought political page, which is quickly exposed (perhaps a little too quickly) by the usual digital brownshirts, and which will certainly do nothing to pull the moderates towards the Left; it may, in fact, alienate them even more. And finally, after an attempted cover-up, the source of the sight has strong financial ties to the Bush family?

It’s certainly not any worse than some of the other paranoid delusions that are floating around out there.


Update: Dang. I see that my sleuthing is substandard, as well as slow. The original source of all this had it figured out before I even got started. I smell a rat!

Another Update: This Guy seems to be on top of it. This should be fun to watch.

He doesn't have it all figured out. The guy behind the page is Hamilton Fish, Executive Director of The Nation Institute, which, in the past, had a pretty close relationship with George Soros. Not saying they do now, but...
