Support Genocide - Green Party Convention

by Derg Donlon Monday, Jun. 26, 2000 at 11:38 AM
donlon@yahoo.com 202-284-2111 20 17th St Washington, DC

Ralph Nader is leading the Green Party charge to increase global justice by eliminating the disfigured in the US.

Ralph Nader, soon to be presidential nominee for the Green Party, has promoted his idea of "population equalization" at the Green Party Convention in session.

"By eliminating the disfigured in America, a population that is of no social or political consequence, we can redistribute more resources to the poor in the 3rd world."

"Why should the US sustain a population that is ugly, incovenient, and just uncomfortable when we can reroute those resources."

"Few things have united the Greens and others for Global justice than disfigured elimination. All who have ever encountered these ugly people have hated them and been repulsed by their visages.

"Gary Graham was good looking. He should not have died, even if he shot a mans leg off and committed dozens of armed robberies. We only should kill people we all can hate. People who are very ugly."

"Remember Seattle, Remember DC, KILL THE FREAKS!!!

Politics are Politics, regardless of party --

by chuck Wednesday, Jun. 28, 2000 at 9:57 PM
mothernight@rocketmail.com

It's kinda funny to see that somebody would make something up like this about Nader and post it on this website. Though it is disgusting that they framed their "joke" of an article in the way they did. It is obvious to anyone who reads this that it is full of shit, but at the same time the person who wrote it has a good point...though I don't think they intended to make this point. All the candidates for president are full of shit, and it makes no difference whether any of them wins or loses, for they can only make things worse no matter who they are. It is about time people begin to organize beyond voting and mere politics. I don't care whether you are a socialist or a democrat, if you think that voting or yelling your vision of justice down to folks instead of meeting them where they are at is the way to justice than you have a lot to learn. It is obvious that justice can not come from the top down, so why are all these folks putting so much time into electoral shit. Nader can not lead us to freedom any more than Gore, or the socialist candidate...the only way to liberation is for the oppressed to lead the way, and this road does not involve voting for a leader...

i can only conclude to say that it is heartening to see so mnay people understand that the true way to vote is with your feet and your voice...the street is where liberation will be born

Eliminate this article!

by Peregrine Monday, Jul. 17, 2000 at 9:00 PM
cegfilm@earthlink.net

Please, someone, get this and the other article about "genocide" off this website! Let's not destroy IMC's credibility by posting links to dumb trash like this ON THE HOME PAGE. There is much more serious stuff going on that needs attention, and if people think IMC is just a bunch of lunatics, we won't get anywhere!

Finally, the truth

by Arlene Vertel Monday, Jul. 17, 2000 at 9:00 PM

Thanks for telling the truth. The great hidden agenda of the environment/labor movement.

You've got balls, courage, and most importantly, a conscience.

Step three in the rumor effort

by E Monday, Jul. 17, 2000 at 9:00 PM
...... ...... .......


These articles have been showing up at the imc-dc site for a while now. This is phase three in the attempt by someone most likely hired by Gore or Bush to start a rumor about Nader and the Greens to discredit them. It is an attempt to prevent the loss of voters in the democratic and republican parties to the Green party. These rumors, along with some bad media coverage (MSNBC.com title: The last angry candidate, in the opinions section), are intended to create rumors about the Greens that will most likely only be believed by uninformed people and those who vote based on bad research, such as rumors and gossip. They start the genocide rumor in Washington DC and Los Angeles, and MSNBC's opinion section paints a picture of the greens as reds (totalitarian communitsts). This is obviously part of a collective political attack against the possibility of a third party gaining power. The Republicans and Democrats don't want to lose voters to the Greens and Reform party. So they start a rumor at the news source most likely to support Nader, than they start other rumors with the help of corporate media that coincide with the rumors started on imc sites.
They are trying to corrupt as many media outlets as possible to stop the Greens, sure we are not fooled, but what about the newcomers that have lost faith in other parties, and come to this site thinking they will find the truth? And what about all those people who have'nt decided who they are voting for and are paying attention to corporate media like MSNBC? These "genocide" stories are not directed towards us, they are directed towards people who stray from the Republicratic norm. Derg Donlon was the first name I saw attached to one of these articles, and now there are other names. Hearing a rumor like this, or seeing this article and not knowing anything about the Green Party can potentially cause doubt in one's mind, and that is exactly what they intended it for when they made this rumor up. Whether this article is an attempt to derail the Green Party or not, it should be removed immediately.

What's truly sad

by Kris Dover Tuesday, Jul. 18, 2000 at 9:00 PM

What's really sad is that even if this is true (which I believe it is) most people in the movement wouldn't care.

They will commit the worst atrocities on the planet but will cry if someone in the 3rd world stubs their little toe.

Why is this? Abject hypocrisy and blind loyalty.

They are really just glorified Nazi's willing to do anything to show support for the cause.

It's not a political movement, it's a social club, comprised of people who tell each other how great they are even when they do murder the most vulnerable.

Deal with the truth you hypocrites. You need it more than all the "action alerts" you put out.

why is this dated on N30?

by Tas Tuesday, Jul. 18, 2000 at 9:00 PM
tasslehoff@mail.nu

Why is this message dated November 30th, 1999? Besides the fact that we all know what that day is, I don't think la.indymedia.org was even in existance at that date. And if it's dated for November 30th of last year, shouldn't the message be at the very bottom of the pile of articles listed on the frontpage of la.indymedia.org, not at the top? Plus anti-Nader messages have also popped up on rockymountain.indymedia.org, dc.indymedia.org, and I believe www.indymedia.org, all today. And like all of the previous posts against Nader and the Greens in the past couple of months, they have all been baseless. What's up?, and could somebody on the inside of Indymedia possibly be involved?

A conspiracy is unlikely

by jasons Tuesday, Jul. 18, 2000 at 9:00 PM

This same inaccurate statement has been floating around the Indy Media websites for quite a while...even when Nader was fairly low and hadn't even declared he was running.

Babbling on about conspiracy theories sounds silly...especially since there is very little evidence (just speculation) and this would be a ridiculous way for the professional parties to produce dirt for a problem candidate.

My guess is the person is getting kicks off the serious responses they get to such a simple and ridiculous piece. They may not be a supporter of Nader's, but I seriously doubt they have intentions to sway people to vote against him...there are much more, dirtier, and well documented "problems" with Nader that can easily be picked off a website.

To the person asking about the dates, this site is just being put together for posts and such. New IMC sites usually take a few days before they're set up specifically for the event they plan on covering.

Labor started the genocide movement

by Kris Marlin Tuesday, Jul. 18, 2000 at 9:00 PM

Thanks for this expose.

It is true, but because this is such a vulnerable, isolated group, few instances are documented or even investigated. Most of you sound like Holocaust deniers.

Thanks for doing this for the voiceless, who apparently will be shouted down by their murderers anyway.

Time to Create a 'Junk Pile'

by Andy Sunday, Jul. 23, 2000 at 9:00 PM

Postings like this have been showing up at many of the IMC web sites. I would like to suggest that IMC create a "junk pile" section of their web site(s) so that "stories" like the above one can be moved there. Just my 2 cents.

We've all got your message - now please stop wasting our resources. If you have something new to say, or can better explain yourself, I'll listen. But please stop saying the same nothing again and again on all the IMC sites.

Love the Fake Responses

by Andy Sunday, Jul. 23, 2000 at 9:00 PM

Gotta love those fake responses after EVERY one of these ridiculous postings, such as "Thanks for this expose." The expose? I've read better written things on the walls of public restrooms.

They are trying to kill people

by AD Sunday, Jul. 23, 2000 at 9:00 PM

We all know they are.

I've heard the press. They definitely want someone or some group of people dead.

These people, sadly, want the same.

Oh well. Let's hope all Nazi's end up in hell.
