Posting Porn OK, Iraqi Dead Not: "Now That's F**ked Up"

The cyber-journalists over at the Bay-Area Hippie News Network (www.hippienewsnetwork.com) would like Americans to understand the following about their country:

Online porn is perfectly acceptable--until you post pictures of the dead Iraqis and Americans from the Iraq War beside exploited underage teenagers. Chris Wilson had a growing online porn business called "NowThatsFuckedUp.com" until be posted images of dead bodies sent him from Iraq by U.S. soldiers.

Here's HippieNewsNetwork.com margin notes with the below below on Wilson's criminal case at Google video:

Chris Wilson had an adult website called "NowThatsFuckedUp." He was jailed, released on bail and jailed again (jailing a person who had been released on bail had never happened in US history). This was the first time. Chris Wilson allowed the US soldiers to post uncensored images of dead Iraqis.

At that point a U.S. prosecutor in Florida, deeply offended by Wilson diluting his kiddie porn collection, charged Wilson with a raft of obscenity charges related to the graphic images of dead bodies.

As one interviewee astutely points out about Wilson's prosecution, the Bush administration do not intend to as LBJ, Richard Nixon and Henry Kissinger did in getting the U.S. into the Vietnam War; they naively permitted field TV crews to broadcast war images into U.S. homes during evening family meals and the ensuing opposition resulted in massive protests and the withdrawal of U.S. troops in 1975. Team Bush does not intend to repeat their mistake, so anyone like Wilson who dares to offer a more honest view on the Iraq War will be prosecuted.

In case you're wondering, Grady Judd, Sheriff of Polk County Florida, now administers Wilson's site. Surf on over there and let the good sheriff leave a tracking cookie in your web browser.

Meanwhile, be warned that the images in the clip below will be disturbing to Americans accustomed to their TV images of war pre-censored by CNN, Fox, MSNBC, etc.




Postscript: The woman with the Russian accent in the clip is Gypsy Taub; her unique opposition to 9/11 Commission executive director Phillip Zeilkow's public whitewash of the terrorist attacks on America was chronicled at Milkhouse Mouse in September 2006.
