Cleveland Indymedia moonbats unhappy with free speech

It is no surprise that so-called "citizen journalism" sites like Indymedia are filled with anti-Israel screeds.

Something interesting has been happening at the Cleveland Indymedia site, however.

Someone has been taking pro-Israel blog posts, including mine, and posting them. This has had the effect of blunting the constant, hateful anti-Zionist propaganda that usually make up a large percentage of their articles.

One of the usual suspects at Indymedia has noticed, and is not happy about it:

Cleveland IMC Under Zionist Assault

This is the tactic: Inundate the newswire with spam, and Zionist propaganda by petulant, bitter reactionaries that border upon psychotic, who are dedicated and organized to conflate the theme of Zionism to Judaism, dependent on the cloak of ‘Jewishness’ to hide the blatant horror of occupation and genocide the leadership of Israel has perpetrated since the Zionist and the Nazis formed a partnership to seize the lands of the Middle East for a “Greater Israel”

Since Indymedia is ostensibly about free speech, this is more than amusing. (Not to mention the fact that I am apparently borderline psychotic.)

The incident also shows that it is possible to fight back against the haters without too much effort, even on their own home turf. So whoever you are doing this - good job!
