Barack Obama is all about spreading the word of hope. His counterparts would like you to think otherwise, as can be seen by a recent hacking of Obama’s very own Hope.net. The hacker smeared the site with red lettering which says “Spread the word! Barack Obama has no security on his web site! Will his administration have no security?”, later editing the text to read “To the media! Stop saying Clinton hacked Obama. They want nothing to do with this. You spread lies.”
I’m not sure whether this was a legitimate hack or not, since removing the “www” from Hope.net will take you to the normal appearance of the website (Editor’s Note: Or at least it did, seems the standard Hope.net page is now redirected to the www version), though the addition of the www still takes you to the defaced version of the site. If so, is this a prank from one of the Nutcracker’s supporters, as the links clearly point towards Hillary’s website? — Andrew Dobrow
this is definitely not a hack. Obama doesn’t own http://www.hope.net/. His website is barackobama.com.
This is clever, but also pitiful.
@um Thx for that! April Fool’s Day prank or not, this is quite a smearing campaign.
2600 Magazine’s Off the Hook radio show on WBAI in New York (streaming online as well, find it yourself) just announced that it was indeed an April Fool’s Joke which began when April Fool’s Day started in New Zealand (which is 18 hours ahead of EDT.) They’ve had hope.net for a very long time.
The only thing that was ‘hacked’ was the mindless masses.
The major parties (Dem/Repub) should be boycotted anyways. They’ve been in power too long. Real progress won’t come from old regimes.
