Tube thwarts Taitz

In a recent article, birther activist Orly Taitz accused YouTube [link to Taitz web site] of blocking the view counter on her videos to make it appear that she has no support. The evidence against YouTube seems to be that the counter on her video shows that Taitz has no support.

Times are tough in the birther business.

    There have been so many high points to Taitz’s blogging career. There was the time a supporter sent mail to Taitz’s gmail, only to have it bounce. The agitated supporter then got it to Taitz by some other means, and Taitz wrote a post about Google attacking her by bouncing her email. The post pointed out that Soros’s nephew is on the Google board of directors, QED.

    The post included the email message in question, where it was quite evident that the email address had a typo.

    This is the only case I’m aware of where Taitz deleted a post.

    I can’t get behind that comparison!
    The difference between Victoria Jackson and Taitz, is that at one point, Victoria Jackson was actually close to being considered as remotely relevant.(Her days as an SNL C-lister.)

    Tonight Orly is giving a talk at a Denny’s in Huntington Beach.

    ❝Currently, Dr. Taitz has eight different cases against Obama going on. She will inform us as to what she is doing in each case, and in addition, will be speaking about the current manipulations occurring in the Department of the Treasury.❞

    Can you feel the excitement?

    “It’s likely to be a very laughable presentation,” said the same speaker; “for upon my life I don’t know of anybody to go to it. Suppose we make up a party and volunteer?”

    Is Orly Taitz so mentally unstable that she thinks that whatever she wants/does should turn out well and if it doesn’t, it’s because of [fill in the blank]. It’s never because the law of averages plainly show that no one ever wins ALL THE TIME.

    She’s not mentally healthy with a sense of entitlement not to be believed, because there is no way that she is clear thinking and doesn’t understand that sometimes in life, shit happens……and we all just go on.

    If I had the stomach for that much Taitz, I would totally produce a YTP* of her videos, and then laugh at her calling foul on me exercising my first amendment rights.

    *For those of you with better things to do with your life, YTP stands for “Youtube Poop”, which are puerile, sophomoric “comedy” remixes of videos. They tend to be purposefully, poorly edited, and are usually spliced with filthy non sequiturs and assorted toilet humor. In Orly’s case, it would be a vast improvement.

    RanTalbott October 3, 2013 at 12:17 pm #

    I’m just wondering if Orly’s problem is that youtube only increments the view counter if someone watches the video all the way through.
    If that’s the way they count (which would make sense, because it would screen out people trying to artificially inflate their stats, who clicked on a link by mistake, etc), maybe she just needs to learn how to say “I got nuthin’ new” more succinctly, so people won’t bail out partway through the video.
    If anyone cares enough to experiment, I looked at the video she’s bitching about last night (but just the first few seconds), and the view counter was 1379. If I were doing their software, I’d filter out repeated hits from the same IP address, so it would probably need to be a group experiment.

    I heard about that. The freepers are moaning about this “poor, innocent woman”, that “All she did was make a wrong turn!” and “They should have known better! There was a child in the car!”

    No, she plowed a barricade. Then she hit a cop. Then she hit a cruiser. Then she tried crashing the White House gates. They put her down, like she was a mad dog, because that’s how she was acting. After what went down at the Naval Yard, I’m not surprised the cops were so fast to act. They had no way of knowing there was a child in that car. The way she was using her vehicle, one can easily argue that she was not “unarmed”.
    In my opinion it was suicide by cop. She was probably hoping the kid would get hit too.

    From what I can see, she did not ram a barricade and she fled in fear/panic, and IMO the police are now trying to cover/justify their own panic and excessive force. I say that after watching the film and listening to the constantly changing “facts” that show she did not actually “ram” a barrier and the cop crashed his own squad car into a barrier, and after I have spent many years reviewing countless false police reports and cases of excessive force. I can’t imagine how believing this makes me a “freeper”.

    Bob: Most of Orly’s posts for the last few days are how the president is electronically monitoring and thwarting her.

    Yes, you’re right. Orly’s paranoia bespeaks a specific form of mental illness: delusional disorder. As Wikipedia describes it, delusional disorder,

    “is an uncommon psychiatric condition in which patients present with non-bizarre delusions, but with no accompanying prominent hallucinations, thought disorder, mood disorder, or significant flattening of affect. Non-bizarre delusions are fixed false beliefs that involve situations that could potentially occur in real life; examples include being followed or poisoned. Apart from their delusions, people with delusional disorder may continue to socialize and function in a normal manner and their behaviour does not generally seem odd or bizarre. However, the preoccupation with delusional ideas can be disruptive to their overall lives.”

    When I read this article one week ago tonight (almost to the minute), I took a screen capture of the YouTube page referenced on Orly’s site because I wanted to see what was going to happen with the counter. At that time, the video had 1,361 views, with 11 likes and 5 dislikes.

    As I write this tonight, it has 2289 views, with 35 likes and 8 dislikes. Clearly, the “regime” has not “placed a block on the you-tube counter to show that dissidents have no support and no audience”.

    But what I find truly ironic is that Orly’s post on her own website (the link in Doc’s article above) has not had one single comment since October 1.

    Is the regime blocking people from commenting on her site? Or does she just have no support and no audience? LOL
