"Spike" Bravo Butt of You Tube Cyberbully Attack
By Sharlene Holt
Our very own Freedom's Phoenix workshop mascot, Nick "Spike" Bravo, has been the butt of cyberbully attacks by an anonymous You Tube user. As many around the workshop are aware, Spike is homeless, jobless, and very vocal about his current predicament. Most nights, Spike can be found online at You Tube and other blogging sites lamenting his case. One of our favorites is called "My Dream," in which our hero can be found giving serious consideration to consuming a can of cat food! He promises his viewers that if they'll subscribe, he'll do the dirty deed. Today, Spike shared with us at the workshop just one of the many anonymous parodies proliferating on the internet. As I write this article, Morpheus is busy researching the attacks and has found too many to mention.
In contemplating the situation, we are unsure who is the "crazy" person here: our man Spike or the parody producer. We are debating whether it's our duty as Americans to report the alleged attacks to Dr. Cass Sunstein, Karl N. Llewellyn Distinguished Service Professor of Jurisprudence, Law School and Department of Political Science, University of Chicago. According to Prison Planet today, Dr. Sunstein, president Obama’s appointee to head the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, and the man who outlined a plan for the government to infiltrate “conspiracy groups” in order to undermine them, is in direct line for a promotion to Supreme Court Justice. Sunstein, already in an advanced position of power in the White House as Regulatory czar, has already called for strict restrictions on gun ownership, an internet “Fairness Doctrine”, and an effective ban on free speech where dissenting opinions to those of the government are expressed. Surely Dr. Sunstein will realize the gravity of the situation and take Spike's concerns on as a test case. We'll keep you posted as this situation develops.
