Nathan Eccleston, a striker for Liverpool is under investigation after posting on Twitter his views on 9/11. The 20 year old player posted:
“R.I.P all 9/11 victims my thoughts are with their family’s and all those that was affected by this tragic accident!”
“I ain’t going to say attack don’t let the media make u believe that was terrorist that did it. #OTIS.”
OTIS is said to stand for Only the Illuminati Succeed (isn’t that the name of Jay-Z and Kanye West’s single?). After receiving some backlash from appalled fans, Eccleston replied:
“If you don’t like what I have to say un follow me!! Some things get took way out of context.”
He is now “under investigation” and might suffer dire consequences for daring to voice an opinion in a country that supposedly guarantees free speech. Here’s an article from the BBC on the subject:
Liverpool to investigate 9/11 tweet from Nathan Eccleston
Liverpool are investigating striker Nathan Eccleston for comments on Twitter that suggested the 11 September attacks were not the work of terrorists.
A tweet that has since been taken down said: “I ain’t going to say attack don’t let the media make u believe that was terrorist that did it. #OTIS.”
OTIS reportedly stands for Only the Illuminati Succeed.
The 20-year-old has made nine first-team appearances for Liverpool.
A club statement said: “The club takes this matter extremely seriously and senior club officials have informed Nathan Eccleston that we are undertaking an investigation into the circumstances surrounding these postings and will decide on an appropriate course of action.”
Eccleston, who has over 39,000 followers on the social-networking site, has since tweeted: “If you don’t like what I have to say un follow me!! Some things get took way out of context…”
The Manchester-born striker has spent time on loan at Huddersfield Town and Charlton Athletic, and has played for the England Under-17 team.
Eccleston’s injudicious tweet is far from being the first time a professional sportsman has got into trouble through their use of social media – earlier this year former Liverpool player Ryan Babel was disciplined for tweeting an image that implied refereeing bias.
In another example, England cricketer Tim Bresnan rowed with a follower in 2009.
And according to a social media expert, clubs will have to bring in more stringent frameworks to cover players’ use of Twitter and similar sites.
“Clubs need to behave like brands and put proper governance in place to dictate how the players – their employees – behave,” Simon Rutherford, managing director of Cubaka:Social told BBC Sport.
“The club has a reputation to protect and in this case, with American owners, there needs to be an understanding of what you can and cannot say. The player’s bio says that he is a footballer for Liverpool so that is why he gets so many followers, He therefore has a duty towards them in what he says.
“Players need to realise just how damaging a tweet can be, even if they hit the delete button, as he did in this case, someone will have a screenshot and it will be all over the internet. Clubs already give their players media training and increasingly we’ll see that include use of social media.”
And of the potential for clubs to ban players from using Twitter, Rutherford added: “That would be an extreme form of governance and if a club decided that the best way to protect its brand was to stop tweets then they could impose it.
“However [they would be better served] trying to embrace the medium and using it to get their message across.”
Here’s an article from CBS about the same inflammatory tweet.
UK player: Terrorist not behind 9/11 “accident”
Shortly after the killing of Osama bin Laden, American football player Rashard Mendenhall caused an uproar when he took to Twitter to cast doubt about what really happened on Sept. 11, 2001.
Now a British football player has followed suit.
The Associated Press reports that Liverpool is investigating striker Nathan Eccleston for comments he posted on Twitter regarding 9/11. One of the tweets read: “I aint going to say attack don’t let the media make u believe that was terrorist that did it.”
He also made a reference to O.T.I.S., which can mean Only the Illuminati Succeed. (Conspiracy theorists believe the Illuminati steer governments and corporations to essentially control major events worldwide.)
The tweet followed another posting in which he called the attack an “accident.”
“R.I.P all 9/11 victims my thoughts are with their family’s and all those that was affected by this tragic accident!” Eccleston wrote.
The comments were removed from Twitter, and Eccleston then tweeted: “If you don’t like what I have to say un follow me !!”
A young soccer player overseas tweeting about 9/11 is not likely to raise as many eyebrows in the U.S. as Mendenhall did – except for two things. One, Ecclestone posted his comments when emotions were running high in America – on Sunday, the 10th anniversary of the attacks. Two, Liverpool’s principal owner is John Henry, who also happens to own the Boston Red Sox.
“The club takes this extremely seriously,” Liverpool said. “Senior club officials have informed Nathan Eccleston that we are undertaking an investigation into the circumstances surrounding these postings and will decide on an appropriate course of action pending that inquiry.”
Mendenhall lost a lot of public support – and a sponsorship deal – for his comments. We’ll see what consequences, if any, Eccleston will face.
Another UKIP MEP. This time its Gerard Batten talking about the recent Bilderberg meeting and the media’s lack of coverage, and it shows that there is a conspiracy between the attendees and our main stream media not reporting on the meeting.
EU MEP and leader of the United Kingdom Independence Party (UKIP) Nigel Farage speaking out against the EU economic governance that has killed off democracy in Greece. In the video Farage tells European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso that he had warned the commission about allowing Greece to join the Euro but was laughed at by the commission for making the statement and Farage then explains how Greece is now ruled by 3 part time dictators from the EU Commission, the European Central Bank and the International Monetary Fund who are now telling the people of Greece what they can and can not do.
Farage also asks Barroso to stand up and be a man and admit to his failed policies that have allowed Greece to be brought to her knees. Barroso also today called for a “fight for European integration”, during a debate on the eurozone crisis. Barroso said there neededs to be a “federalist moment” due to the break down in co-operation between EU governments and then went on to say “monetary union cannot function on the basis of unanimity, where a Eurosceptic fringe can block decisions. That is just not credible”. I will leave the last quote to Mr Farage again warning Barroso that by allowing the Euro crisis to go on in Greece “You will cause a revolution”.

British PM David Cameron and French president Nicolas Sarkozy arrived in Tripoli, Libya, on Thursday and have pledged to provide military, political and economic support to al-Qaeda.
The New York Times, however, does not mention the fact al-Qaeda is part of Libya’s new leadership. The newspaper instead concentrates on “jubilant Libyans praising [Cameron and Sarkozy’s] role in pushing the erstwhile Libyan dictator out of formal power,” while saying nothing about the price average Libyans had to pay.
Sarkozy and Cameron said NATO airstrikes will continue so long as Libyans resist the invasion of their country by the global elite. They made the comments during a news conference with al-Qaeda:
They were speaking at a news conference alongside Mustafa Abdel-Jalil, the leader of the interim administration set up by the insurgents, and Mahmoud Jibril, the rebels’ de facto prime minister, who said the rebels still needed NATO “protection for our civilians.”
Jalil is from the Haribi tribe in northeastern Libya. It is linked to al-Qaeda. Many of the CIA’s assets in Afghanistan during the war against the Soviet Union were from Libya and they would later merge with al-Qaeda. Ayman al-Zawahiri gave the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG) his personal seal of approval and the LIFG officially joined the group in 2007. A West Point study revealed the intimacy between Libyans and al-Qaeda in Iraq allegedly responsible for killing U.S. occupation troops.
Behind Abdel-Jalil and Mahmoud Jibril stands Abdelhakim Belhaj, the founder of LIFG. “Hardly by accident, all the top military rebel commanders are LIFG,” writes Pepe Escobar. Belhaj, a dedicated al-Qaeda jihadist, is considered the top Libyan military commander.
“This was your revolution, not our revolution,” Cameron told al-Qaeda.
The New York Times and the rest of the establishment media are working overtime to portray the Transitional National Council and al-Qaeda as heroes and the legitimate rulers of Libya. Precious little corporate media space is squandered on the fact NATO’s rebels are murderous racists.
Cameron and Sarkozy did not arrive in Tripoli merely to heap praise on al-Qaeda – they paid a visit in order to promote business: the business of the bankers and transnational corporations.
The trip, according to the New York Times, “was also part of a high-stakes play by both leaders to cast themselves as successful and muscular champions of democracy as their business elites vie for opportunity in post-Qaddafi Libya.”
The globalists prefer that their captured dominion be ruled over by austere and violent Sunni Wahhabists or other wide-eyed fanatics, as was the case in Afghanistan before the U.S. decided to invade the country and overthrow their former partners, the CIA and ISI created Taliban.
The U.S. State Department saw “nothing objectionable” when the Taliban took over the country in the mid-1990s after the Soviets fled.
“The Taliban will probably develop like the Saudis. There will be Aramco [the consortium of oil companies that controlled Saudi oil], pipelines, an emir, no parliament and lots of Sharia law. We can live with that,” a U.S. diplomat said in 1997.
Like al-Qaeda in Afghanistan, the variant in Libya will likely become another enemy in short order and we will be told billions of dollars more must be squandered – and more women and children butchered – lest the evil ones plot against freedom lovers.
