Brilliant.

An Update on Bob ‘@piltdownsupermn’ Sorensen’s Lies

In this article, entitled ‘Dumping Posterous’, Bob ‘I’m a HUGE liar’ Sorensen claims that he voluntarily ditched his Posterous account, before making the following statement –

“An atheopath is claiming credit for that one site on Posterous being down. But since he is famous for lying, libel and defamation, I doubt that it’s true.”

Really, Bob? Well here’s a screen print to prove it.

But you knew that already, didn’t you Bob? And you know that you’re lying to your reader by claiming otherwise.

Amazing Spin from Bob ‘@piltdownsupermn’ Sorensen

Incredible, read the following from Cowardboy Blob –

 

“These are primarily Web and Facebook postings, I didn’t violate the privacy and stalk individuals (unlike some people) to put screen shots of their pages up.” (from here – http://www.piltdownsuperman.com/2013/02/a-word-of-thanks.html *)

Really Bob? You don’t do that? Well what about the page that used to be here? The one that your little fan Jason Petersen has reproduced here? In fact the ONLY reason you can say you ‘don’t’ do that is because the evidence you DO was erased from your Posterous account after you got whacked with a DMCA!

And so the endless dishonesty of Bob Sorensen continues.

Bob Sorensen Thinks an Empty Page Accurately Represents His Intellect

Today Bob has stepped up his paranoia, and has complained to Facebook, resulting in me being blocked for three days – all for posting an image. What was this image you wonder? Why, it was a screenshot of a Posterous 404 ‘Page Not Found’ error with Bob’s Posterous URL in the address bar! Apparently Bob believes this to be an infringement of his intellectual rights! Naturally I have queried this with Facebook, asking how the page can contain Bob’s property when it is the generic ‘no content’ page for Posterous. I hope that FB will see reason and recognise that Bob’s claim is entirely malicious, and lacking in any actual credibility.

Here’s a recreation of the screenshot, using a page that doesn’t exist. If anyone at Posterous doesn’t want their 404 page shown in this article, please email me and I’ll take it down (Bob, you don’t work for Posterous, so you can’t, sorry)

Not Bob's page, but practically identical to the image he claimed as his.

Not Bob’s page, but practically identical to the image he claimed as his.

I assume he’s done this because he was upset at having the page pulled down after a valid, and successful, DMCA claim from myself. On that page he had posted numerous screen shots of my, and others, intellectual property – tweets, facebook updates, blog posts, and (most importantly, as the other parts could be maybe considered public domain in some cases) photographs that I own the copyright on. Given that Bob is very fond of false take down notices, I don’t know why he should have a problem with a legitimate one.

I find it sad that Bob is so bereft of honour that he stoops to actions like this. But I also find it amusing that he has effectively admitted that his ‘intellect’ is equal to an empty webpage.

Joe Cienkowski, Liar

Obama said "if political winds turn ugly, I'll stand with Muslims" & "Future doesn't hold for those who insult prophet Muhammad

Obama said “if political winds turn ugly, I’ll stand with Muslims” & “Future doesn’t hold for those who insult prophet Muhammad

The above is a tweet combining two of arch fundie dick bag Joe Cienkowski’s favourite ‘Obama’ quotes. As with everything else he says, thinks, or writes it isn’t what it appears.

The first ‘quote’ is taken from ‘Dreams of My Father’, and the context completely changes what Joe claims is being said. Here’s the full text (I have emphasised the section Joe quotes) –

“Whenever I appear before immigrant audiences, I can count on some good-natured ribbing from my staff after my speech; according to them, my remarks always follow a three-part structure: “I am your friend,” “[Fill in the home country] has been a cradle of civilization,” and “You embody the American dream.” They’re right, my message is simple, for what I’ve come to understand is that my mere presence before these newly minted Americans serves notice that they matter, that they are voters critical to my success and full-fledged citizens deserving of respect.
“Of course, not all my conversations in immigrant communities follow this easy pattern. In the wake of 9/11, my meetings with Arab and Pakistani Americans, for example, have a more urgent quality, for the stories of detentions and FBI questioning and hard stares from neighbors have shaken their sense of security and belonging. They have been reminded that the history of immigration in this country has a dark underbelly; they need specific assurances that their citizenship really means something, that America has learned the right lessons from the Japanese internments during World War II, and that I will stand with them should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.” [Page 260-261] . . . ‘Dreams of my Father’

Notice there is not a single use of the word ‘Muslim’ in that text. Also notice that the context of what’s being said completely changes the meaning from that suggested by Joe.

What of the other ‘quote’? That ‘Future doesn’t hold for those who insult prophet Muhammad’ line? The actual text, from a speech reproduced in its entirety here, runs like this –

“The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam. But to be credible, those who condemn that slander must also condemn the hate we see in the images of Jesus Christ that are desecrated, or churches that are destroyed, or the Holocaust that is denied.”

Yet again, notice that the context is completely different from that suggested by Joe. Also notice that there is no mention of the word ‘Muhammad’ in the original.

Joe Cienkowski is a liar.
