Update 6/17/2011 3:06 Central: Did the Janice Hahn Campaign hire a Hacker?.
Update 6/16/2011 7:00am Pacific: Janice Hahn declares racism and sexism, revealing that she is not a member of the human race.
Update 6/15/2011 9:07pm Pacific: MSNBC gave this ad all kinds of loving tonight. Just don't understand why they're so afraid of me that they can't pick up the phone and call, or send an email and have a face to face debate? Come on, MSNBC: grow a pair (er, well, except for Rachel). Have me on for half an hour. Unless you're scared.
Update 6/15/2011 8:55pm Pacific: American Spectator does a good job of explaining the details of the entire Hahn-gangster scandal.
Update 6/15/2011 8:25pm Pacific: Janice Hahn, rather than issue an immediate, blanket condemnation of any crimes committed by her "Gang Interventionists," instead chose to file an FEC complaint charging coordination between TRUSA and the Huey Campaign. I guess all those crimes committed on taxpayer money can wait until later. You silly, silly Hahn campaign. Here is the TRUSA response in PDF. Enjoy :)
Update 6/15/2011: I hereby call upon the DCCC and Janice Hahn to issue an immediate, blanket condemnation of the harming of any person by their "Gang Intervention Specialists."
Update 6/15/2011: Holy Moly! For the media too lazy to do research, here's a RICO indictment in PDF form.
Update 6/15/2011: An alert reader emails me this: The Nation: Alex Sanchez Trial
Note that it describes one of the other gang members in the case as leading a double life - pretending to be reformed while still actively ordering hits.
"The government has the wrong Zombie," replies the defense. The Zombie on the wiretapped phone calls with Sanchez was a Salvadoran gang member name Ricardo Tremino Hernandez, now living somewhere in El Salvador. The defense has submitted an affidavit by Tremino-Hernandez's sister claiming that the voice on the tapes is that of her brother, and containing other evidence substantiating his existence. When asked on the stand whether he ever investigated this other Zombie, Flores admitted he had not. He could hardly have answered yes without being asked for notes on the interview, which according to his habit did not exist.
In a surprising development last week, the Salvadoran paper El Mundo published a series of unflattering articles on the prosecution's Zombie, Juan Bonilla, the MS member they say killed Cameron. This Zombie - let's call him the Bad Zombie - has pretended to be a government witness against MS, secretly restructured the gang, gone on a robbery spree and, as of last week, still was on the loose. Along the way, he mastered the art of disguise, even posing as a humble Catholic priest."
Update 6/15/2011: What the? Is CBS making this all up? Janice! You got some 'splainin' to do :)
Update 6/15/2011: The DCCC and Janice Hahn demand that the video come down and that I apologize!
My answer: No! I didn't kill anyone. I didn't even enable anyone to kill anyone. And... oh yeah: suck it! The ad's funny. It makes me laugh. So if, for some reason, it's pulled by youTube, a thousand will be launched in its place all over Algorez' Internetz. Because you're only drawing more attention to your past of supporting criminals, Janice, and forcing policemen out of their jobs for doing their duty. So there you go. Claim victimhood all you like, but how many people were victimized by your coddling? There's a reason Mayor Villaraigosa took the program away from you. He's a Democrat. So are you. Think about it.
I come from the school of Peckinpah and Welles. Which means: I'm not afraid to come out swinging.
I give you, therefore, my latest viral. It's a rap-video attack ad, launched at Janice Hahn's prior behavior as an L.A. City Council member. She is now running for Congress in California's 36th District. She ran a city program that coddled gang members, paid them with taxpayer money, got them out of jail to rape and kill again. She even got policemen fired for daring to arrest her boyz. It was so bad the Mayor of L.A. took the program away from her. He's a Democrat. She's a Democrat. That's bad when your own party takes your goofy program out of your clutches.
We don't need any more gangsters in Washington, D.C.
So the video follows suit.
It's having fun with a basic metaphor. You can guess what the metaphor is.
Before you charge racism at the ad, consider her one line in the video: "It takes a different kind of person to speak the language." By that she means, it takes black people to talk to black people. It takes gang members to talk to gang members. They have their own language, we should coddle them. They're not responsible for their actions if they murder someone, rape someone. They're a minority.
All of that's bunk. I'm from New Orleans. We have creole food, we have cajun food, we have french food, and we mix it all up. Anyone can talk to anyone.
And the main message to gang members in any city should be: want to kill someone? Want to rape someone? Meet Mr. Policeman. He will escort you to jail.
This Clockwork Orange crap about hiring criminals to persuade other criminals to stop their crime is beyond stupid.
Hahn is liberal Jane Harman (Newsweek, Daily Beast) approved, which means Hahn is also George Soros approved. Another reason to have fun at her expense, and let people know what an idiot she was and is.
I made the video for Turn Right USA, a brand new PAC designed to fund viral videos exposing stupid and corrupt politicians (on all sides the aisle, and under the seats, and in the broom closets, and in Congress' gym).
Most politicians and political action committees are too cowardly to come out swinging. So it's great for TRUSA to step up to the plate. Very rare! This is not your grandfather's viral video.
