Terrorism Recruitment and Propaganda Posters

After reading an article talking about how foreign recruits to ISIS get higher pay and more women and girls to rape than their native Islamic counterparts I decided to create a fake Recruitment poster. My idea was something along the lines of, Join ISIS now and for a limited time get all the girls to rape that you want. As I searched Google for a template I discovered something shocking. I didn’t need to make a fake recruitment poster because plenty of genuine ones already exist. I have assembled a collection below. As far as I can tell by checking back to the source of each image these are not satire, they are real.

Hackers aren’t heroes, and they aren’t just some kids being idiots

The problem with hackers is that they are somehow still seen as a bunch of anti-social kids and young adults acting out on the Internet in a way that is more nuisance than crime.  A bit like getting your brand new fence tagged by some scrote with a large marker.

The truth is that these are highly organised networks of sophisticated criminals that cause damage and extort money.

Right now, when someone is hacked, we tend to shift the blame on the people not running sufficient security, or having had some other lapse.   We victim blame.

Computer systems at South Korea’s nuclear plant operator have been hacked, the company said on Monday, sharply raising concerns about safeguards around nuclear facilities in a country that remains technically at war with North Korea.

The Korea Hydro and Nuclear Power Co Ltd (KHNP) and the government said only “non-critical” data was stolen by the hackers, and that there was no risk to nuclear installations, including the country’s 23 atomic reactors.

But the hacking was reported as the United States accused North Korea of a devastating cyberattack on Sony Pictures.

Experts voiced alarm that the controls of the nuclear reactors could be at risk.

“This demonstrated that, if anyone is intent with malice to infiltrate the system, it would be impossible to say with confidence that such an effort would be blocked completely,” said Suh Kune-yull of Seoul National University.

“And a compromise of nuclear reactors’ safety pretty clearly means there is a gaping hole in national security,” said Suh, who specialises in nuclear reactor design.

Just like you can break into any house, hackers can break into any computer system.  They just need time and eventually they find a way in, frequently using techniques where people are fooled into doing part of the job for them.    Read more »

French Allahu Nutbar demonstrates Religion of Peace

I’m not sure if Islam is being advised by the same people that ran David Cunliffe’s election campaign, but you have to wonder if they are getting the message right.

Eleven people have been injured after a known psychiatric patient drove into pedestrians shouting ‘God is greatest’ in Arabic in a French city.

Two of those hit by the driver, who was believed to be drunk, were in a ‘very serious’ condition in the city of Dijon after being struck shortly after 8pm on Sunday night.

The 40-year-old was arrested by police at the scene and may face terrorism charges, authorities said.

The incident comes days after a man was shot dead after entering a police station armed with a knife in another French town, slashing two officers while proclaiming his love of Islam.  

Speaking of the attack in Dijon last night, a police source said the man used a Renault Clio to run over ‘as many people as he could’ before being stopped. 

‘Many are suffering with very serious head injuries,’ the source added. Read more »


Taxpayer pays for “rescue” of man with hurty knee

This sort of thing winds me up no end.  Let’s see how much anger we can generate here.

Up to $10,000 of taxpayers’ money was spent on a rescue in Northland over the weekend for a group of Aucklanders “who were not in real danger”, police say.

I think that being rescued should cost you money.  With discounts for being well prepared.

Police, Coastguard and a rescue helicopter were all involved in the search and rescue of two men, aged 25 and 33, who became stuck on a remote Bay of Islands walking track in poor weather on Saturday night after one of the men injured his knee.

A third man with the group had tramped to a Department of Conservation (DoC) hut for shelter, taking the group’s only torch with him, police said.

One torch between the three of them.

The trio set out to walk the Cape Brett track at Saturday lunchtime, thinking it would take just two hours, but by 9pm raised the alarm when one of them became injured and couldn’t continue.

That track is over 16km one-way, and is rated at 8 hours.  One way.  Great prep.

They were able to give their approximate location to police, and the Northland Emergency Services Trust (NEST) rescue chopper was sent out to find them.

The idiots were lucky to have cellphone cover. Read more »

Boag snatch to fund Sky City blowout?


There’s a new candidate for who is paying Michelle “The BoaganBoag and her offsider Cedric “Senile” Allan for their campaign to snatch $2.1 billion in Vector shares from the people of Auckland and South Auckland to give to Lyin’ Len Brown’s council.

Whaleoil still doesn’t quite believe it but its overloading the tipline so here goes: The theory is it’s SkyCity casino. Here’s why it could be true.

Since Friday SkyCity has been saying it needs another $130 million from the government to build its new National Convention Centre. Or else it’ll pull out of the deal. The government has to make the SkyCity deal work because all the rest of its convention centre plan is falling apart.

Steven Joyce seems to be saying he’ll open up some of his trough but not for the full $130 million and wants Auckland ratepayers to front up with the rest.  

In a world first, everyone from Lyin’ Len to Dick Quax have lined up and told Joyce to shove it. (The one exception is Cameron “Mr Fiscal Responsibility” Brewer who sounds like he’s had too many nights in the SkyCity corporate box.) Read more »

Companies warned to “de-Suttonise”

“Poor” Roger Sutton.  He’s had his name turned into a verb.  Yesterday we saw the rise of “Doing a Sutton”, and today we see pleas for people to “de-Suttonise” their behaviour.

Employers have been told to take an “arm’s length” approach with staff this Christmas to avoid employment disputes in the new year.

The warning comes after the high-profile Roger Sutton case raised questions about behaviour in the workplace.

Employment Law Institute president Mark Nutsford sent a message to employers advising them to “de-Suttonise” their behaviour at end-of-year parties.

A State Services Commission inquiry found the Canterbury Earthquake Recovery Authority chief executive committed serious misconduct for behaviour that amounted to sexual harassment.

Sutton admitted to hugging employees and calling women “honey” and “sweetie”.

Doesn’t sound so bad when you put it that way.  How about “women were momentarily restrained without warning and against their will while Sutton forced himself on them with an unwanted embrace”?     Read more »
