Caught red keyboard-ed

Captain Ed over at CQ has done a great job digging up a little history on Henry Reynolds, an attorney from Santa Monica, CA, who created www.imwithfred2008.com. The site boasts "Bringing a Message of Hope and Deliverance to White Christian America!" and links to the Ku Klux Klan -- but shouldn't be mistaken for the real Fred Thompson website, found at www.imwithfred.com.

It doesn't take long for provocateurs to crawl out of the woodwork to attack candidates, especially in stealth attacks. With Fred Thompson, they've apparently started before he officially enters the race -- and in one case, race is the operative word.
Unfortunately for Reynolds, a quick search conducted by Ed revealed his history of campaign donations -- to Moveon.org, John Kerry, and the DNC.

That has to be embarrassing. Go check it out.

Update: Here's the DNS search for the website. Feel free to give Henry a call and ask about his website at (310) 393-7052.
Update 2: He wised up and changed the DNS entry to a proxy company. Fortunately, the internet doesn't really forget. Ed has the stuff cached here and here.

And I've got some screen shots saved on my computer!

MoveOn.org is an anti-Semitic and anti-Catholic hate organization that exercised editorial control in favor of such hate speech, while encouraging it with a derogatory photomanipulation of Pope Benedict plus official bulletins (from Noah Winer) that cite anti-Semitic and pro-Palestinian sources. It comes as no surprise that its people are resorting to dirty tricks of this nature.

I think in general politicians and those who seek power resort to dirty tricks of any and all natures. Unfortunately, by distancing themselves from all moral absolutes the Left (be it MoveOn.org, Kos, or the Democratic party) removes any and all prohibitions from doing wrong.

Thus, while all politicians are power seekers, politicians who deny absolute moral standards are much more likely to use "low" or "dirty" tricks to grab power. (See the attempts to disrupt the peaceful transition of power in the US in 2000 and the more recent attempts in to modify parliamentary procedure such as Harry Reid's clay pigeon or Pelosi's canceled vote.) This goes double for their supporters on the internet who have much to say but (usually) little to lose. This guy just happened to get caught.

Anonymity can be a nasty thing.
