Lisa Magnusson Scores Own Goal
No rebuttal necessary.
SÖDERMALM (Radsoft) — Lisa Maria Therése Magnusson is a member of Sweden's new media elite, often called the 'media mafia'. She has the same background and exhibits the same traits as the rest of them: mental instability, and significant psychological, sexual, and social issues. So much so that she, as her siblings of myriad genders in the duckpond, jumped at a golden opportunity to hate on someone when Julian Assange entered those deceptively still waters.
But there's one major difference between Lisa and the others in the orchestrated campaign 'talk about it' (prata om det) which was designed, with the help of PR firms, to smear Julian Assange in Sweden: her weak personality and propensity to put her foot in her mouth. Lisa's embarrassing outbreak day before yesterday is likely the end of a long line of vitriolic ad hominem diatribes against Julian Assange and WikiLeaks. It's just too stupid. Lisa scores an 'own goal'.
Lisa was otherwise known for the remarkable statement that she was so happy to be back in Sweden after half a year in Paris because she was the victim of so many 'wolf whistles' there.
Lisa was also known for defending immigrant rapists, marginalising the pain of the victims by asking people to remember the unfortunate situations of the criminals instead.
Being politically correct in Sweden is a delicate balance.
The Internet's Crawling with Creeps
God I was in love with the Internet in the summer of 2009! 'Even if class, race, gender, and sexuality colour our way of expressing ourselves, we have in the Internet the opportunity to achieve a new type of skinless equality', I wrote back then. A new type of skinless equality? And now in the late autumn of 2012 it feels like a bitter joke. The Internet is crawling with racialist, sexist, homophobic creeps, and anonymity is their most cherished haven.
Each new right threatens a privilege. So if I write something positive about immigrants, women, or homosexuals, I can consequently count on various threats from the very shittiest depths of the anonymous Internet trenches. And further: people often write that I am dumb and fat and ugly. I started working out last spring, but of course that doesn't help. The other day I saw that someone had posted something at Flashback (and all threads there are about how awful I am) that he'd seen me at my gym and that I looked like a barrel with thin hair and no tits. You can never beat the creeps.
I was one of the ones who helped WikiLeaks redact names from the US military documents so they could release the information on the war in Afghanistan without innocents being endangered. I also organised contacts with the local media for the organisation. I began to dislike how WikiLeaks became synonymous with Julian Assange. To me this was against the basic tenet, with the organisation functioning as a cluster with everyone helping everyone else.
And then along came the accusations of rape which are about the private individual Julian Assange but which are treated as if he was a political prisoner where he sits today in that pathetic Ecuadorian embassy. The hatred of friends of WikiLeaks against the women he's said to have raped is enormous. Celebrity women like MIA, Lady Gaga, and now most recently Vivienne Westwood stand up for him - on the side of Julian Assange. They say they want to show their support. Support for what exactly? Julian Assange isn't WikiLeaks. He's his own man. And no one can reasonably know what's happened except him and those he's alleged to have attacked. The only things those supporters show is that they hate women, or that they sacrifice the women on the altar of the Information Jesus because they're so in love with him, or that they just don't care about women and want to increase their popularity so they can sell more records and clothes. It's disgusting.
I'm always connected to the Internet. But nowadays I try to avoid the net itself. I've isolated myself together with my friends as well as I can and basically stopped replying to people I don't know. I'm saddened the Internet never became more than it is.
If I'd not been a woman, I'd not have had the chance to write for Aftonbladet.

It's interesting that Magnusson still uses the epithet 'Information Jesus' which she used for her part in the orchestrated 'talk about it' campaign against Assange back in December 2010. She must think it's cool. But it's actually much more fitting with her friends where we have the Swedish duckpond full of 'information jesuses'. And it goes without saying that a subversive enterprise like WikiLeaks will sooner or later - preferably sooner - collide with these loyal national feminists and lobbyists.
Fascism in all its forms needs to create a divisive society full of hate and a common enemy. The state feminism of Sweden has an 'enemy within' in the form of the entire male population and its Emmanuel Goldstein is Julian Assange.
Mental illness and diffuse sexual preferences that evolved into heterophobia should not control the political agenda.
I'm so sick of it all. Will it never end? At any rate I want to say the other girl's just as much to blame.

Apparently Swedish laws are unique. If you have a penis you're half a rapist before you even get through customs.

If I am able to reveal what I know, everyone will realise this is all a charade. If I could tell the British courts, I suspect it would make extradition a moot point.

I can tell you that the Swedish prosecution still hasn't provided copies of those SMS texts that have been referred to. Those texts are some of the most powerful exculpatory evidence. In Australia prosecutors have a very grave duty to disclose such evidence to courts when seeking the grave exercise of a court's power against an individual. Yet in Sweden in this case, in the first hearings to obtain an arrest warrant, those texts were not submitted to the Swedish court, which is highly improper.
- James Catlin
The prosecutor could achieve this broadening of the law during Assange's trial so he can be convicted of a crime that didn't exist at the time he allegedly committed it. She would need to. There is no precedent for this. The Swedes are making it up as they go along.
- James Catlin
Julian Assange will surely learn that considering what WikiLeaks has published, he's got a few enemies in the Pentagon, the CIA, and the White House. Sweden began an investigation into rape which was later dismissed. Assange was even denied residence in Sweden. One can only speculate to what extent the security agencies of the US were involved. And considering the obvious interest of the US to silence WikiLeaks, is it likely Assange will have an accident of the 'Boston brakes' kind in the coming years? Or will he be snared with compromising information of the 'honey trap' kind?
- 'Drozd' at Flashback 23 October 2010
The truth will out, the truth wins out. Let no journalist ever again speculate into what the protocols say. Six months of digging and the people at Flashback have the actual documents. The sleaze printed by rags such as the Daily Mail, Sweden's Aftonbladet and Expressen, and perhaps above all the toxic Nick Davies of the Guardian, can stand no more. Yet more: these documents are an indictment of the 'news organisations' who've printed deliberate inaccuracies all along or even worse: refused to print anything at all. Nick Davies' account of the protocols was maliciously skewed; both Aftonbladet and Expressen had copies early on and printed nothing. Bloggers had copies but arrogantly kept the information to their Smeagol selves.
