PRESS RELEASE

 

****************************************

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

everywhere.

 

Below are some facts about this organization, its methods and motives.

 

FACT: One of the founders of SubGenius was involved in the Kennedy

assassination.

 

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!
