Skip to comments.The Recent "Framing" Attempt (Team Sarah Website Under Attack)

Community Governance Adviser- Team Sarah
I want to let everyone know now, that we have all the facts, why today seemed a bit, well, crazy...
We know who these people are through technological traces of where they are coming from (called IP Addresses) and other means. We have the website owner's information from the website from whence this conspiracy to vandalize our community. We have lodged a protest. And we fight on!
This invasion was detected early on by TeamSarah member Kelley S, who is working with me to protect our community from such misconduct. We are taking many active measures to suppress the invasion. Thank you all for your excellent advice and support in defending TeamSarah. This discredits the Liberal attackers, not TeamSarah!
Truth outs in the end.
It is now apparent that the earlier attack on our reputation blogged at The Huffington Post was of the same nature: send in agents provocateurs to say awful things, frame us for violations of our own high standards, and treat them as "real" in order to discredit us. The smoking gun? One of the HuffPo's claims against us is identical to what one of the website's posters gloated about posting!
Just a few samples (we have 15 pages of documentation!) of the conspiracy in the conspirators' own words:
Brown Moses - The idea isn't to troll, but to agree with everyone saying insane poo poo to reinforce their belief they are the ones who are the true supporters of Sarah Palin, and those people who attempt any sort of moderation are evil Obama supporting turncoats who need to be purged. You'll get so much insane poo poo posted then trolling will be irrelevant.
this is a pretty good point
i am trying to get them to admit to/feel more comfortable with using white nationalist rhetoric
Brown Moses -If Hillaryis44 is anything to go by the posters will eventually think they've pratically got direct contact with the Palin campaign thanks to the website, and anything they post will be considered by the campaign in a serious way.
With your help we are getting the situation under control. We are working, around the clock sometimes, to exclude potential invaders and to expel those who have sneaked past our defenses. The Invaders tactics resemble the arsonists who put the torch to Gov. Palin's church. They will fail, and fail in shame. TeamSarah is stronger, and more dignified, and together we are repelling these attacks.
Thank all those who have contributed whatever they can afford at the "donate here" button to allow us the resources to fight for our integrity. And if you care to donate to help us raise our defenses and fight for our integrity and reputation, thank you!
If you want to help move this story, I have posted it on RedState:
Liberal Conspiracy to Frame and Defame TeamSarah: Busted!
GO there and recommend it, send people links, etc.
Also; DO NOT in any way attempt in ANY WAY to retaliate or anything of the sort. Help get the info. out, stay focused on what we do here, and RELAX! (As I said earlier)---- Bill
As of this morning, Community Governance Advisor Bill Collier and others working behind the scenes have identified and documented as many as 90 (!) DU, HP, and KOS infiltrators who have been openly gloating about their activities, strategy, and tactics.
Fortunately, once the nature of the attack was discovered, the Team Sarah community united and undertook a strong self-policing campaign to zot the trolls and their posts. Thus far, we have been extremely successful, but the trolls just keep on coming. I zotted one myself just a while ago.
Consequently, I just want to reinforce the point that the Liberals (especially those from DU, HP, and KOS) will resort to ANY means, no matter how low and despicable, to infiltrate and destroy Conservative websites from within. So, please be sure to keep up your guard.
Please ping anyone else who may be interested in this troll attack at Team Sarah.org.
Please correct the article date. It should read January 2, 2009 instead of January 2, 2008. I’m still living in the last year apparently. :)
Most of all, anyone they see as a strong leader to revise and push forth the Republican party will be subjected to much the same.
The owners of Team Sarah should have been prepared for this, because, as we all know, Obama has 3 million cyber geeks out there to attack anyone who disagrees with Obama, shut down any website that is disagreeing with Obama, and skew polling data.
Well, the site only recently started out as a very small endeavor on a shoe-string budget, and although the owners probably expected a few trolls who would occasionally wander in and quickly disappear, I think they were wholly unprepared for the massive organized assault that took place once Team Sarah got National attention.
Heck, 90 trolls coming in all at once would even keep the FR mods busy for a while, as big as this forum is.
It will be interesting when the Democrats impose “hate speech” laws. Their agents could infiltrate a conservative website, posting stupid stuff. Then use the government to shut down opposition websites. Maybe take it one step more and arrest opposition politicians as part of an “investigation” into “speech crimes.”
Same article but different title, but thanks anyway! The more people who see what has happened, the better.
Easiest thing in the world to spot who they are once they started posting. These Huff 'n Puff Post, DummyUnderground, dailycuss, moron.org, and mediasmatters folks cannot express their feeeeeeeeeelings without the F-word.
You give them far to much credit. There very actions speak to their level of maturity (or lack thereof).
Perhaps the news could have been controlled in the 1950's through the 1980 but with the advent of the computer and the Internet it has become a losing gamble to depend on keeping people in the dark in order to advance an agenda not otherwise acceptable to the greater majority.
Screw that. Report them to the FCC, and sue them big time. If you have the IP, you have their identity, for all practical purposes.
Liberals (especially those from DU, HP, and KOS) will resort to ANY means, no matter how low and despicable, to infiltrate and destroy Conservative websites from within.
Sound advice. And, I might note, payback's a Hillary, if you know what I mean.
They have what they want - The Congress and the Executive Branch and they have no intention of losing them.
If we Conservatives (Republicans) want the power back, we have to dig in and fight like never before.
I also have designed a tribute logo and had it embroidered on a few caps.
I saw another thread on this and made a remark here:
I already saw your spot-on comment this morning, Philo. Thanks! The folks over at Team Sarah have finally caught on too, after a slow response to the infiltration. They’re learning real fast how nasty and vicious lib trolls from DU, KOS, and HP can be.
In the eyes of the mainstream media, Free Republic is defined more by the Chuy’s/Mia Lawrence incident, than by the exposure of the forged Killian memos on CBS News in September 2004. As I’ve said, they want to portray conservatives as a tribe of vicious, bigoted Neanderthals — either stupid or evil, and preferably both. Anything that supports this hypothesis will be repeated everywhere; anything that undercuts this hypothesis will be ignored. The Kos/DU hordes organize in large numbers to come over here, pose as conservatives and post vicious and bigoted bulls**t, providing support for the “Freepers R Bigoted Neanderthals” hypothesis.
also is america4AMERICANS one of us or what:
whoever it is just sent me a friend request so idk
Glad to see this guy got busted.
There are some lines we try not cross, and delibertely going into a Forum simply to "mess" w/it is one of those things.
Some places like FR are fine to "mess" with, but this has come to the point where it it is merely cruel; we're better than that.
These people have WAY TOO MUCH time on their hands.
