Anonymous not letting up on Toews

Vic Toews, you were warned!:

(Text pasted here.)

Oh wow.  I didn’t know the mistress was snorting and scarfing at the Public Trough right alongside her Viagra-starched paramour, but am I surprised? Are you?

The Toewster’s squeals and bleats about McCarthyesque investigations notwithstanding, my sense is that Anonymous might be difficult to investigate since it’s not an “organization” as such, but in commenter fhg’s words, “a loose ad-hoc collection of script kiddies with perhaps a handful of talented hackers who help them out sometimes”.  I suppose anyone can be outed eventually — that is, after all, the purpose of the kind of heavy-handed anti-privacy legislation that Toews champions — but not before the weather in Toews’ neck of the woods gets so uncomfortably warm that he starts drowning in his own swinish sweat.

But this assumes that Toews is a Normal Human Being who might be shamed by the ugly skeletons that boogie out of his closet and dance around him in a salacious conga line of lewdness and lechery, and the jury’s still out on that one.

In that context, commenter bleatmop pointed out another distressing possibility: that the gang of brainless authoritarian thugs on Parliament Hill  might use this episode of internet pushback as proof that the Nets are Totally Out Of Control and need to be put on a leash even more robust than Bill C-30.  Alarmingly, as I took my Morning Scroll through Twitter today, I saw a few comments to the effect that internet users should be mandated to post under their real names, which would obviously prevent much of the kind of activism we see with Anonymous.  (Oh yeah, and so much for that “Arab Spring” thing.)  It’s more than a distinct possibility that this would be their response: if they bite, can we bite back?

    If nothing else all of this is good entertainmnet. On the other hand it is kind of scary the lengths vic will go to. Really, a probe, investigation into this. What did they guy think, people wouldn’t fight back. He must be even dumber than he seems. he now wants the horsepeople to investigate? What is there to investigate. Public information was made a little more public. Live with it. You would think harper would sack the guy. On the other hand he maybe letting ole vic take the heat, fire him and make a few minor adustments to the bill, etc.
    I do hope Ann. goes for it. the harperittes need to be exposed for what they are.

    So what if it came off of a “employer” computer. This “employer” is the government, and the government is the people so let the people speak.

    Woah.

    Anonymous bringing their A-game?

    Well, this is certainly a promising development. However to keep some perspective, a determined reporter access to Google and Facebook could have dug up this information without too much hassle. The links of Toews’ paramour to her family could easily have been found, especially if their Facebook profiles were public, and not private, which is the case for most people as far as I know.

    So… Hmm… How much are people going to care about this? But then again, what does it take to get fired from a Harper government cabinet post? What did Helena Guergis do that Vic Toews hasn’t done exactly? Nobody that I know is happy with Vic Toews at this point. His confiscation of the AP-80 is intolerable, and this latest debacle, well… Anonymous got it right, 100% – Vic Toews should resign and apologize to Canadians, period, full stop. Good on Anonymous for sticking with this. Sadly, I’m guessing that Vic & co are going to call their bluff given how easily this information could be found in world which is increasingly online. I suspect that Vic is going to up the ante, he’s demonstrated that he’s too arrogant to back down now.

    I don’t know what it will take to make the government back down on this one, but I think it’s going to take a lot more than this.

    Still. Go Anonymous!

    Oh. And when Sun News is against you, you know it’s a bad idea!

    I would like to see the job postings for the positions that Ms. Meek was hired for, and would love to see if any other more qualified applicants were turned down.

    I imagine that sh*t is hitting the fan in a few offices on the Hill today (actually as they are on break this week, it’s probably spread around the country).

    I think that poor woman deserves everything she ‘earns’ considering that Toews couldn;t get lucky in a Downtown Eastside SOR with a pocket full of crack and a fist full of fifties..she has definitely earned her money…
    Now Toews? Whole other discussion….

    Harper hates the internet. He hates his underhanded tactics being posted on the web. Harper is a dictator, and does not want his disgusting plans, to get to the public’s ears. That how all dictators are, they are paranoid and must control absolutely everything. They don’t feel safe, unless they do. This is why Harper is having secret meetings behind closed doors. Another fascist trait. I’m not buying it, the internet snooping is for the police, it’s for corrupt old paranoid Harper, to keep his secrets hidden from the Canadian people. Harper just comes out with some stupid policy from his secret plots, he hides from the opposition and the citizens….With no discussion or debate, they are suddenly and falsely forced onto our citizens.

    Harper’s henchmen rant and rave, just as Hitler’s henchmen did. Who in the hell cares about Toews sordid life and stupid divorce. I sure in the hell don’t. He can wallow in it all he likes, and he really seems to like to do so.

    Harper has so many dirty schemes on the go, it’s hard to keep up with them all. Harper is selling Canada out to China. China is being brought to Canada to work China’s huge chunk of the dirty tar sands, our mines, their numerous company’s and the BC mills.Freighter after freighter of BC’s raw logs go to China. The Campbell/Clark BC Liberals, have done no reforesting. Harper and his henchman Campbell have dismantled BC, and sold the entire province right out.

    Watch out for Harper and Obama’s border deal talks too, that too is another crock of b.s. Don’t forget Harper had a many times convicted American Felon, Carson, working for him. When Harper was caught, felon Carson made a mad dash back to the U.S. The U.S. everyday people say, Harper election win, was rigged for the N.A.U….And, do they ever despise Harper. They are dead set against the N.A.U.

    Just remember, Harper and his henchmen have no morals or ethics, what-so-ever.

    The Toewster’s squeals and bleats about McCarthyesque investigations notwithstanding

    Hey! Bleat is not a pejorative!

    Also, I can’t imagine this case of nepotism gaining any traction, nor any opposition party pursuing it. I think it would easier to list MP’s who don’t use nepotism rather than the ones that do.

    You might be mistaking Anonymous with Vikileaks, which supposedly came from a gov’t of canada computer.
    If this is true, then whoever was doing Vikileaks did a disservice to themselves and their fellow employees by not covering their tracks a little better.

    It is pretty good entertainment, though 🙂

    I suspect that Vic is going to up the ante,

    No doubt. As bleatmop pointed out, his response to all this might be to put even more of a squeeze internet users. Toews is far too arrogant to resign and apologize.

    Let’s just hope he’s got some real skeletons in his closet, banging at the door to get out! 😀

  11. 11 JJ Friday, February 24, 2012 at 2:40 pm

    Thanks for the vid. Three words I thought I’d never say: “go Brian Lilley”.

    Toews may have done what progressives have been unable to do, unite everyone in a coalition!

  12. 12 JJ Friday, February 24, 2012 at 2:41 pm

    I suspect this was one of those jobs that never makes it to the Job Board 😉

  13. 13 JJ Friday, February 24, 2012 at 2:42 pm

    Another break?? do these people ever work???

  14. 14 JJ Friday, February 24, 2012 at 3:00 pm

    Ugh, that just conjured up some pretty grotesque visions… My eyes, my eyes…

  15. 15 JJ Friday, February 24, 2012 at 3:07 pm

    Indeedy. If nepotism in our government was being punished on a broad, all-inclusive scale, Twitter would crash under the load and Anonymous wouldn’t have time for anything else.

    Harper just comes out with some stupid policy from his secret plots, he hides from the opposition and the citizens….With no discussion or debate, they are suddenly and falsely forced onto our citizens.

    Unfortunately this trait cuts across party lines. We just recently got rid of such a policy forced on us by the Liberals and their Henchmen when they were Drunk With Power.

    Also, re the AP-80: What in the wide world of sports would make them reclassify a .22 as a “prohibited” weapon? That seems kind of weird: aren’t prohibited weapons the most dangerous ones? And the seizure of private property is wholly unacceptable.

    But of course the right to privacy only matters when it’s internet usage.
    I find it amusing that the same people who told me my privacy was not important, and that I was paranoid for being concerned about it, are now screaming about C-30 as an infringement on their privacy. Which it is, but deep down I can’t help smirking “See how it feels, goofball?”
