Ajit Varadaraj Pai: Dunce

Wikipedia has the sadz…

Used to be when someone tagged a Wiki entry, it was there forever as a revision. Not any more – it sure looks like Wiki has taken to hiding some of the revs.

For instance, it certainly appears that this revision for noted internet dancing clown & dunce Ajit Pai  used to read like this back on November 22nd:

Ajit Varadaraj Pai (born January 10, 1973) is a bought-and paid for corporate shill for the telecom monopolists, who’s dicks he sucks for money. His only mission in life is to destroy net neutrality, a favor for which his corporate overlords will reward him with more fat sacks of cash. If this is allowed to happen, the freedoms we now have on the web will cease to exist. He is the first Indian American to abuse his office. He also has an incredibly punchable face.

All of which is obviously true, as evidenced below. Why hide it?

Kneeling Jesus

The teen hopped on top of a statue of a kneeling Jesus — in front of an organization called “Love in the Name of Christ” — and simulated oral sex with the statue’s face. Naturally, he posted the pictures to Facebook, which made their way to authorities.

Officials in Bedford County charged the teen with desecration of a venerated object, invoking a 1972 Pennsylvania statute that criminalizes “defacing, damaging, polluting or otherwise physically mistreating in a way that the actor knows will outrage the sensibilities of persons likely to observe or discover the action.”

Sweet Jeebus: teens and their in your face behavior.

Fortunately the Pennsylvania chapter of the ACLU is looking into the case: if money is considered ‘free speech’ and corporations are really ‘people’ buying politicians with scads of  expressing their ‘free speech’, then certainly a 14 year-old kid face humping a statue of an imaginary deity is also free speech. 1

But because this is the reality show known as ‘Murica, there’s more.

The DA prosecuting the lad, Bill “Drop A Load” Higgins 2 of Bedford County, Pennsylvania, who has said “…this troubled young man offended the sensibilities and morals of OUR community. …His actions constitute a violation of the law, and he will be prosecuted accordingly. If (prosecuting the boy) that tends to upset the ‘anti-Christian, ban-school-prayer, war-on-Christmas, oppose-display-of-Ten-Commandments’ crowd, I make no apologies”, is yet another two-faced hypocrite with which American politics is rife.

Ol’ Bill got his nickname from a personal Tweet he posted last month (now deleted, of course):

Yep, ol’ Bill certainly has a firm hand on the sensibilities and morals of HIS community, wouldn’t you say? The Republicans would be smart to pair him up with Romney to run against the Biden/Clinton ticket in 2016.

  2. Yes, of course he’s an elephant.

Well Done, Jimmy Wales!

Wikipedia Co-Founder Jimmy Wales said he would rather have no Wikipedia in China than comply with any form of censorship.

In an interview with The Wall Street Journal in Hong Kong, Mr. Wales said the company will always refuse to comply with government requests to restrict information, calling access to knowledge and education a human right.

Since early June, in the lead-up to the anniversary of the Tiananmen Square crackdown, China €™s Great Firewall has blocked the encrypted version of Wikipedia where users in China could access the site without filters. Now, users can now only access the unencrypted version of the site, where articles on politically sensitive topics are blocked and keyword filtering is common.

Web activists have since called on Wikipedia to default to the encrypted version of their site, where outside sources cannot filter or track user behavior on the site. The move, they say, would force the government to decide between blocking Wikipedia outright and allowing access to the unfiltered version of the site.

Mr. Wales said he liked the idea, but said the company does not yet have the technical ability to do that right now in China, and that the company would not shut down the unencrypted version of the site. He is also not particularly concerned about the threat of cyber attacks, since the company does not engage in malicious activities or carry financial data.

In December, China €™s legislature decided to require Internet access providers to collect data about users that links their online names to their real identities.

Asked whether he would comply with a real-name registration system, Mr. Wales replied €œnot for five seconds. €
