SubGenius: the Hidden Threat
In the Senate Anti-Terrorism Hearings in the wake of the Oklahoma
bombing, a new menace has come to light. This menace is a shadowy,
formless anarchoterrorist cult known as SubGenius. This cult
contaminates the information superhighway and its tentacles reach
Below are some facts about this organization, its methods and motives.
FACT: One of the founders of SubGenius was involved in the Kennedy
SubGenius was cofounded by Kerry Thornley. Thornley was a close friend
of Lee Harvey Oswald and was involved in a covert Marxist group in the
Marines. After the assassination of President Kennedy, District
Attorney Jim Garrison uncovered evidence conclusively linking Thornley
to the conspiracy.
FACT: SubGenius preaches drug use, terrorism and sexual depravity and
the overthrow of all governments
The BOOK OF THE SUBGENIUS contains incitement to plant subliminal
messages, and disobey laws and advocacy of pornography and blasphemy.
Other materials are even more explicit and extreme. THESE MATERIALS
ARE DISTRIBUTED WIDELY BY THE MEMBERS OF THIS CULT.
SubGenius are prominent in drug advocate, anarchist, communist and
militia movements. They will be found in any movement which opposes
and hastens the destruction of society.
It is clear that the SubGenius have no respect for the values of
society which they seek to destroy. And if society does not see the
threat and react to it swiftly they may succeed.
FACT: SubGenius are entrenched on the Internet and use it to
disseminate their propaganda
SubGenius is a cancer which has spread widely all over the Information
Superhighway. There are SubGenius Netscape pages advoperversion,
anarchism and drug abuse. There are even newsgroups created and run by
SubGenius agents. The Net, which is decentralized and hard to police,
is a perfect haven for these rats.
WHAT NEEDS TO BE DONE
*** SUPPORT THE COMMUNICATIONS DECENCY ACT
The Communications Decency Act, currently before the Senate, will
make it a criminal offense to distribute obscene and indecent
material, categories under which SubGenius propaganda clearly falls.
This would allow the perpetrators of these materials to be properly
dealt with by the law. Write to your congressman indicating your
support for the act.
*** PRESSURE ONLINE SERVICES TO SHUT DOWN KNOWN SubGenius SITES.
There are Netscape pages all over the net run by SubGenius cells,
disseminating their poisonous propaganda to children. Some of these
are at universities, some at commercial service providers. Letters and
phone calls to the sites, describing the material and explaining why
it is unacceptable would get it pulled. If the site refuses to comply,
it may be sympathetic to or controlled by the SubGenius group. If that
is so, contact the site which provides it access and complain.
*** EDUCATE OTHERS ABOUT THE MENACE
Copy and spread this alert. Transmit it to others. Tell others about
the menace and the very real threat of SubGenius. The more people
know, the fewer will be seduced by their lies.
*** PROTECT YOUR CHILDREN
If your children have access to the net, monitor what they access. Do
not allow them to access SubGenius materials. If they have been
contacted by agents of SubGenius, determine these agents' identities
and call the police.
*** ACT LOCAL
Keep your eyes open -- the SubGenius could be where you are! Look
around you. If you notice SubGenius activity, in your community, your
workplace, your online service or elsewhere, keep an eye on it and
alert others. Report any illegal activity to law enforcement
authorities. Only you can stop this threat!
DISSEMINATE THIS ALERT WIDELY. SEND COPIES TO ALL CONCERNED CITIZENS.
IT'S UP TO YOU! ACT NOW!
