God's Tire Iron

"And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God." ( Revelation 19:15 KJV)

Ya know, I just love biblical imagery... it's so... fearsome.

A reader of my old blog (MuskratHunt)(just ask the CO GOP, they have a detailed archive of it - I retired it when Muskrat was finally flushed out) once got their panties all bunched and soaked because I used somewhat-purple humor about political dialog - but you can find much, much worse in the bible. Heck, what that passage is talking about is nothing less than God's Tire Iron.

So, with that holiest of head-whuppin devices firmly in mind, I direct your attention to GreeleyReport.com, an unabashedly right-wing site that's been taking potshots at Dems and libs for quite some time.

The operator's been quite careful to keep their identity secret (much like LongmontReport, but more about that later) and even sneered at attempts to pierce the double-top-secret security surrounding their seamy little media empire.

Well, facts really are stupid things - and when you screw up on the internet, it's in plain sight for everyone to see.

Here's the whois information for GreeleyReport.com from earlier today:

Isn't that fascinating...?

A little bit of the old Googligoogalulu and you find Mr. LeFer's Facebook page and golly... it's gone (it was there at 5pm today!):



Oh dear.

Good thing I captured the text!

Here's a list of folks that Christian LeFer calls 'friends.' I've helpfully highlighted a couple of folks that I recognize (jumps up and down and yells HI STEFFIE!!!!!!! - now your Facebook invite makes sense... glad I said no.) This list reads like a whos-who of far-right lunatic fringers.

Christian has 95 friends.

Christian's Facebook page was in Bozeman, MT... hm... why does that sound familiar....

http://www.coloradoforethics.org/print/25550

Ohhh yeah... now I remember... Shires was (is?) the front man for the Colorado League of Taxpayers - you know, the folks that paid for this ad. Hmmmm....

Ya know... something tells me there are a couple of folks that would like to get in touch with Christian.

Glad I could help out.
