“Why is the government using its vast power to identify these obnoxious asshats, and not the other tens of thousands who plague the internet?”

Ken White

First we’ll mulch the judges; then we’ll bake
the ground-up prosecutors into pies;
we’ll pluck-out every congresscreature’s eyes;
for every cop, a guillotine and stake.
We mean it, pigs. Make no fucking mistake:
if not tomorrow or next week—surprise!—
some day we’ll figure how to anonymize
and route actual murder so as to make
hyperbolic rhetoric into
a magic incantation, thus commission
via mere intention, criminal
and violent retribution of the sort we spew
quite fecklessly, an Internet tradition:
untruth made true, if quite subliminal.

  1. IOZ no longer needs the weirding module! His name is a killing name.

    Some thoughts and words have a certain sound, that being the equivalent to a form. Through sound and motion, we will be able to paralyze nerves, shatter bones, set fires, suffocate an enemy or burst his organs.

    The Asshats exist in vast numbers. And it it we who control the internet. We Asshats are supreme in that quality which is the self-imposed delay between desire for a thing and the act of reaching out to grasp that thing.

    Long live the Fighters! The sleeper has awakened!

  2. I think “expression” might scan better in line 11 than “intention”. Actual criminal intent is already illegal. The point about anon Internet bloviation is that there is no intent to do anything, except possibly to offend.
