White Will Host Website Shut Down For Terrorism In LA

by Bill White Saturday, Feb. 02, 2002 at 5:13 PM

Political differences are subsumed by my over-riding hatred of the tactics used by George Bush's and John Ashcroft's budding police state. I have reached agreement to host the website Raisethefist.com

White Challenges FBI On USA PATRIOT ACT
Will Host Website Shut Down For Terrorism In LA

February 1, 2002

Contact: Bill White dhyphen@yahoo.com
Sherman Austin iaatp@yahoo.com

Washington, DC -- Bill White, editor and publisher of the website Overthrow.com, and independent candidate for state legislature in Maryland's District 39, has reached agreement to host the website RaiseTheFist.com -- a website shut down in a raid by federal agents two weeks ago in Los Angeles on accusations of violating the USA PATRIOT act by publishing bomb-making material.

Stating that he was going to "Raise The First Amendment for RaiseTheFist", White told press today that the Supreme Court has repeatedly ruled that the publication of information on the manufacture of explosive devices is a Constitutionally protected right under the First Amendment, and that neither George Bush, John Ashcroft, or the United States Congress had the right or the authority to usurp the United States Constitution.

"Agent Matthew McLaughlin of the FBI has claimed that Sherman [webmaster of RaiseTheFist] was 'calling people to action to violently overthrow the Constitution of the United States'. Let me make clear that it is the FBI and the secret police state who have already violently overthrown the Constitution of the United States, and that I may not be able to stop the gears of their hate machine from rolling over the liberties of the people, but I will do everything necessary -- even if it means throwing myself on the gears of that machine -- to gum it up and bring it to a grinding halt."

Sherman Martin Austin, webmaster of RaiseTheFist.com, has not been charged with a crime but has admitted in interview with the Washington Post's NewsBytes that he has engaged in hacking, which is a separate act from those the FBI has threatened to charge him with.

White is hoping the website will be set up to be transferred by the end of next week.
