Bio
Virginia Olive Hoge is an artist and writer living in Pasadena, California. She was first introduced to Topix when a serious of hostile threads and polls were built on the Pasadena Topix forums which attacked her and her liberal blog. The Topix threads built on Topix for Virginia/Ginny/Olive, now number in the hundreds. She has become one of the most trolled posters ever on Topix, stalked the entire time and is well-known there. A fighter, she has fought back on Topix, defending herself and others there. She jumped onto the National Topix forums to understand better what was going on around the entire Country and beyond, and became familiar with the raw, brutal, coarse, dramatic, violent, and mythical world that is Topix.com. Welcome to the outer-limits of free speech, the Wild, Wild West of Citizen Journalism. She was on Topix for four years. What a odyssey it was.

Death Threat to Obama Ignored, Critic Censored

Rate: 1 Flag

[Originally published June, 2010]

This post came about when  a Topix friend, Buncy, alerted me to a death threat posted to Obama by a poster naming itself Angry Voter on the Asheville NC Topix forum. The death threat to the President was not only not being deleted, Buncy's comments decrying it, were.

Angry Voter: totally UNFIT for service. he is an IDIOT. we just need one patriot with a good aim.

He contacted the Secret Service and the FBI about it, they did nothing. Topix would not delete the overt threat of violence to Obama, but was censoring Buncy in his fighting of it.

I went to the thread and for 31 days, replied every single day to the comment, asking why it was not removed yet. After 31 days, they finally deleted the entire thread.

Update 7/19/10: After 31 days, Topix has finally deleted the thread. 

Update 7/18/10: After publishing this post, I have been checking and commenting every single day to see if the death threat was removed by Topix.

After 31 days, it has STILL not been deleted.

This overt threat of violence to the President of the United States is still live, Topix refuses to delete it:

Death threat to Obama

Angry Voter: totally UNFIT for service. he is an IDIOT. we just need one patriot with a good aim.

Meanwhile, a commentator writing in decrying this death threat, had their comment deleted by Topix within hours of its posting:

Buncy: You need to google up the ex-marine just sentenced to 100 months for threatening the life of the President of the United States.
I found the article at WLOS.
BTW, I have had telephone conversations with AV, and I know he's not the drooling maniac who would say something like you have said, you sorry felonious POS.
I'm sending a copy of this overt threat to the FBI, you slimy POS.

Topix deletes the comments all the time from Buncy, who they do not care for, yet allow death threats to the President of the United States to remain posted.

Yikes.
