M.I.A. Is Kinda Crazy! Attacks Google And Facebook

| Filed under: PolitikM.I.A.Tech Talk

Never one to shy away from controversy!

M.I.A. has recently taken a stand against websites Google and Facebook, claiming that they're owned by the CIA and used as a means to monitoring the public!

She says:

“Anybody who is called the government is right. And anybody who isn’t called the government is not right… And you know, all governments are connected to Google, and all governments can shift their search engines so only what they want you to see comes up… I want kids to be aware of this digital circumstance… Everyone on the Internet is like, “Oh my God, come and join Facebook!” They’re all so optimistic… and really, everyone is fucking you up behind the screens. And I don’t like that. It makes it difficult for me to interact with my fans knowing that. Google and Facebook were developed by the CIA, and when you’re on there, you have to know that.”

Wow! Pretty serious stuff! And here we were thinking that the only use for Facebook was Farmville and posting unflattering pictures of drunk sorority girls!

What do U think?? Is she right or is this just a crazy conspiracy theory??

    Smoke some more crack, bitch.



  2. 2

    Her beliefs are a bit "out there" but she makes valid points. People are too willing to put so much information about their lives on the Internet for every Tom, Dick, and Weirdo to gain access to.



  3. 3

    She's a CRAZY BITCH!



  4. 4

    damm that bitch is crazy paranoid



  5. 5

    she's just spewing off her opinion like they're facts. ugh, what an idiot.



  6. 6

    I've been thinking this for years, it's nothing new or surprising. Everyone who uses the internet should already know that anyone and everyone can and will find your stuff, so be careful what you post, ANYWHERE :)



  7. 7

    I dont think MIA is worth taking seriously,baring in mind she releases effed up songs about robbing people and stuff.
    And lets not forget the name she gave her poor kid,i mean what the hell?

    Oh yes, this is all true, all true. Also, the earth is flat, and the sun revolves around the earth.



  9. 9

    preach!



  10. 10

    Of course she's right…. and that's only the half of it. The government control EVERYTHING!!!



  11. 11

    why crazy? people think the government is transparent and truthful. hahaha so funny. many conspiracy theories are right. people think they know the whole truth in the world because their tv says so. yeah right, we know maybe 2%



  12. 12

    LMAO! She sounds like she needs to be in somebody's nuthouse! But even worse than that, no one would even care if this was true.



  13. 13

    This ape lookin bitch is nutz !! I don't understand why people like her and think she's "so talented" ?!?!?



  14. 14

    Yeah well Im sure her past full of drugs doesn't help . . . im sure it would be a great idea though!



  15. 15

    tinfoil hats, now available in all sizes and styles, as endorsed by M.I.A.!



  16. 16

    She's right!

    Re: Soulsoulshock – I agree with you.



  18. 18

    Her father works in the government. She probably knows what she's talking about. She's a very political person.



  19. 19

    I think she needs to get off tha pipe………..



  20. 20

    Re: dborhem – Post #7 - I used to think her songs were about robbing people and stuff but then after some research I found out her songs were about the GOVERNMENT robbing people. A lot of her songs are political based but she makes it sound main-stream. Smart chick…



  21. 21

    The basis of her theory is very true! It's sad that no one is educated in how controlled media and internet is… reading all these comments proves that.



  22. 22

    everything she is saying is TRUE but she not only talks but looks bat-shit crazy



  23. 23

    In the words of George Lopez "Ta Loca la cabrona" LMAO!!!



  24. 24

    She may be a little bit too "far out", but in the same way that Microsoft Windows probably has a number of backdoors left that allow secret government access (thinking NSA here), Google is being probably monitored to detect "terrorists" (in other words, to track any potential troublemakers in the making).



  25. 25

    Paranoid much?



  26. 26

    Who is this nut?



  27. 27

    Paranoid. I think world governments have a few other things on their hands. If only government was that organized - we might have a more efficient world.



  28. 28

    gosh, she is so cool and forward thinking. maybe the government runs perezhilton.com as well!! oh noo!!!!!! FAIL



  29. 29

    shes high



  30. 30

    IDK; it's a MAD WORLD! So much stuff to question. Love how MIA speaks her mind! Food for thought…

    Um CIA DOES OWN GOOGLE AND SHIT U DUMBASS MOTHERFUCKERS !

  32. elo says – reply to this


    32

    They both cooperate yet they are not owned or developed by them.



  33. 33

    What an idiot.. her music sucks too.



  34. 34

    If society would learn to actually read more than Twilight books and internet news snippets, they might actually take the time to learn that technology itself has been used as mind control since WW2. All of those science experiments were all a matter of mind control. Even the United States employed those scientists after WW2 for our own CIA MK ULTRA experiments. Conspiracy theory??? Try this source The Joint Hearing Before The Select Committee on Intelligence and the Subcommittee on Health and Scientific Research of the Committee of Human Resources UNITED STATES SENATE NINETY-FIFTH CONGRESS First Session August 3, 1977. I suppose a hearing where the CIA admits they performed experiments on countless of unwilling citizens, many of whom were CHILDREN and subjected to horrible torture just to find out out to make a little more money. They said the experiments stopped around the same time color televisions were introduced. Now you tell me that is a coincidence! The internet is just the new medium of brainwashing the youth. If you think this all a bullshit conspiracy then it has obviously worked on you.
    "Hitlers dictatorshit made complete use of all technical means for the domination of its own country. Through technical devices like the radio and the loud-speaker, eighty million people were deprived of independent thought. It was thereby possible to subject them to the will of one man"



  35. 35

    crazy crack head



  36. 36

    I have a whole new respect for M.I.A. :D



  37. 37

    She has no idea anything about technology or information systems…when she goes to school and learns about the google creators…then talk…other than lets still give her millions of dollars to do nothing =\

  38. Niloo says – reply to this


    38

    shes right. she comes from a very political background. you guys should get out of your bubble and see the light



  39. 39

    Re: lorio25 – "If you think this all a bullshit conspiracy then it has obviously worked on you." - very true.



  40. 40

    I think we've all thought about this or heard someone who did. Whether its your phone line or the internet. We've all been aware of this, most of us don't believe it though and just go on with our lives. But sometimes I think, where did that thought come from to begin with? Who started thinking this years ago and why?



  41. 41

    Givin' WAY too much credit to the GOVERNMENT!



  42. 42

    The Information Awareness Office (IAO) was established by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) in January 2002 to bring together several DARPA projects focused on applying surveillance and information technology to track and monitor "terrorists" and other asymmetric threats to national security, by achieving Total Information Awareness (TIA). This would be achieved by creating enormous computer databases to gather and store the personal information of everyone in the United States, including personal e-mails, social network analysis, credit card records, phone calls, medical records, and numerous other sources, without any requirement for a search warrant. This information would then be analyzed to look for suspicious activities, connections between individuals, and "threats". Additionally, the program included funding for biometric surveillance technologies that could identify and track individuals using surveillance cameras, and other methods.



  43. 43

    Re: gorgeous_chik7Re: JoanneMH – you both are so right… n the comments on this post show brainwashed everyone is. so sad…



  44. 44

    I don't take anything seriously when said by someone who wears a dress with a shark on it. Something tells me she lacks credibility.



  45. 45

    people are so ridiculous and close minded. not only is she not crazy she is only touching on the tip of the iceberg. her music is so-so but her world views are dead on.



  46. 46

    SERIOUS!!!! Soulsoulshock , you are right 100% us as amer-i-cans do not know shyt with THE HILLS, Kate + her 8 & all the the other BS the tv shyts out for us to EAT up. check out the truth : www.thegeorgiaguidestones.com NEW WORLD ORDER …..LOOSE CHANGE dvd 1-4 the truth on 9.11



  47. 47

    Perez, things are only considered theories when there's no facts to back them up. Sister speaks the truth. The world bank, the IMF and a handful of wealthy bastards who played too much risk and monopoly as children are preparing to lubelessly ass rape America. Using your own police and military. Most of you are so lost in your brangelina nfl government bullshit bubble that you have no idea the the military is training for martial law, that there are fema camps, that those planes in the sky with trails behind them are the reason it'll be cloudy tomorrow.

    Narus is a US private company which produces mass surveillance systems. It was founded in 1997 by Ori Cohen, who had been in charge of technology development for VDONet, an early media streaming pioneer.
    *
    It is notable for being the creator of NarusInsight, a supercomputer system which is allegedly used by the NSA and other bodies to perform mass surveillance and monitoring of citizens' and corporations' Internet communications in real-time, and whose installation in AT&T's San Francisco Internet backbone gave rise to a 2006 class action lawsuit by the Electronic Frontier Foundation against AT&T, Hepting v. AT&T.



  49. 49

    Nice to see she's not as brain dead as she looks.



  50. 50

    I think she's a little paranoid, but I wouldn't be at all surprised if it WAS true. Luckily, I have nothing to hide, so who cares?



  51. 51

    Law enforcement and intelligence services in the United States possess technology to remotely activate the microphones in cell phones in order to listen to conversations that take place nearby the person who holds the phone.
    *
    U.S. federal agents regularly use mobile phones to collect location data. The geographical location of a mobile phone (and thus the person carrying it) can be determined easily (whether it is being used or not), using a technique known multilateration to calculate the differences in time for a signal to travel from the cell phone to each of several cell towers near the owner of the phone.
    *
    The FBI developed the computer programs "Magic Lantern" and CIPAV, which they can remotely install on a computer system, in order to monitor a person's computer activity.

  52. 52

    She's a loon. But what evs. If your not doing anything illegal, then you have nothing to worry about anyway.



  53. 53

    i think there may be some truth to what she's saying but unless u really are putting all ur shizz out there for ppl to see or find or ur doing something illegal then you really dont have anything to worry about. stop being so effing paranoid!



  54. 54

    Huh. I have nothing to hide.

    THE PEOPLE SAYING I HAVE NOTHING TO HIDE ARE A WORRY!

    58

    Probably true, oh well. Time for a status update…..



  59. 59

    it's true the governments has come to arrangements with FB and google, think about it



  60. 60

    You never know…



  61. 61

    why would you be so stupid to call her crazy…of course that's correct. and i thought that was common sense. smh



  62. 62

    most of the comments here are a prime example of the comfortable ignorance of the masses. Yes, I have a lot of personal information online. I dont believe everyone is being monitored but if you dont think that everything about you has been recorded you're stupid. and I'm sure the internet does help the process.

  63. NCap1 says – reply to this


    63

    she is semi right- but COMPLETELY FCKING CRAZY. they can search our shit or sure but arent looking at every wall post we right. its crazy music people like this that have these thoughts first and then come out with a new album about paranoia



  64. 64

    This is crazy! Next you're gonna tell me that the government listens in on our phone calls and reads our e-mails. Yeah, right.

    Oh, wait. They do.

    Re: Soulsoulshock

    Thank you! Someone will common sense! Most of these people are calling her a crazy bitch… No the real crazy bitches are the people who are too dumb to actually take what shes saying into account. It's people who are naive like that, who will screw us all in the end.



  67. 67

    Re: lorio25
    Thank you!



  68. 68

    Having just returned from China, I can understand where there is truth in what she's saying. Governments can and will control what citizens can view - In mainland China, Google's homepage is redirected to Google Hong Kong and when something isn't viewable an "error" page takes the link's place. (Your site is viewable in HK and mainland thankfully!)

    While nothing would surprise me, M.I.A. ought to explain her source information explaining how the CIA and Google are connected. Perhaps then I could understand her statement about it being "difficult" for her to interact with her fans knowing the sites are government founded and controlled.

    Seems a bit ungrateful and rather ignorant to make comments about those people who have landed her the fame she has…



  69. 69

    I'd don't think she's crazy at all. Are you people really so niave that you don't think it's possible? Google the CEO of Google. You'll see that he's directly connected to Obama.



  70. 70

    Re: jussdrea – LMFAO!!!!!



  71. 71

    SHE'S RIGHT.



  72. 72

    You go grl!! thanx for trying to open the morons, i mean, people's eyes! but they won't listen to you, they're too busy playing with their ipads, living on creditcard/borrowed money, while the world collapses around them!!!! good try anyway!!



  73. 73

    The Total Information Awareness program, of the Information Awareness Office. KNOW EVERYTHING ABOUT EVERYONE.. HEAR, WATCH KNOW EVERYONE BETTER THAN THEY KNOW THEMSELVES!
    *
    The NSA has been gathering information on financial records, internet surfing habits, and monitoring e-mails. They have also performed extensive surveillance on social networks such as Myspace, Fb Gmail, Yahoo.
    *
    The US government demands all tech companies provide them with a backdoor key to all software in use today.
    *
    The Communications Assistance for Law Enforcement Act (CALEA) is a United States wiretapping law passed in 1994
    *
    CALEA's purpose is to enhance the ability of law enforcement and intelligence agencies to conduct electronic surveillance by requiring that telecommunications carriers and manufacturers of telecommunications equipment modify and design their equipment, facilities, and services to ensure that they have built-in surveillance capabilities, allowing federal agencies to monitor all telephone, broadband internet, and VoIP traffic in real-time..
    *



  74. 74

    Anyone that knows the history of both companies knows this isn't true.

    Having said that, I wouldn't doubt Google was in bed with the Obama administration.



  75. 75

    anyone who thinks that anything on the net is private, has their head up their asses.



  76. 76

    Re: cindydeesam1 – No one would care if this were true? Wow, go stick your head back up your asshole, loser.

  77. CAM5 says – reply to this


    77

    I hope she twitted that.



  78. 78

    Valid point…why wouldn't the government be somewhat involved. It's a useful tool to monitor an individual's activities…. anything is possible.



  79. 79

    I don't like her. But she does have a valid point. I am the only person in my family who does not have a Facebbok account. My private thoughts, pictures, memories, and life belongs to me, and no one else. Not even Mr. Zuckerberg. The internet has become overly-saturated with an individual's private information. I can't stand M.I.A. but kudos to her!



  80. 80

    January 16, 2003, Senator Russ Feingold introduced legislation to suspend the activity of the IAO and the Total Information Awareness program pending a Congressional review of privacy issues involved. A similar measure introduced by Senator Ron Wyden would have prohibited the IAO from operating within the United States unless specifically authorized to do so by Congress, and would have shut the IAO down entirely 60 days after passage unless either the Pentagon prepared a report to Congress assessing the impact of IAO activities on individual privacy and civil liberties or the President certified the program's research as vital to national security interests.
    *
    IAO was defunded by Congress in 2003. However, IAO and its projects continued to be funded, and merely run under different names by the NSA outside of congressional oversight.



  81. 81

    Definitely NOT created by the CIA, though I have NO doubt that the CIA uses them for its purposes sometimes. It's sort of inevitable actually. I mean, we do have to recognize that the government started the internet in the first place, so it basically has the means to gain access to any web-based program out there. So, really, she's kinda bitching over nothing. If you don't like the government, then don't use something it created period :-/

    Would suck for her though, because then she REALLY won't be able to interact with her fans easily.

    Oh well…



  82. 82

    I don't believe FB was "developed" by the CIA, BUT…you can be SURE that they are utilizing all the users' information now. VERY SCARY.

    DON'T ADD NEW INFO TO YOUR FB ACCOUNT. GO SILENT. There are those here who are addicted to it, but if you don't stop updating your every move, you're telling it to the CIA, etc.



  83. 83

    She must be so happy to live in a country with freedom of speech!



  84. 84

    she's right, its all social control



  85. 85

    she's 100% correct, in fact she's UNDERESTIMATING the government. they DO monitor everything on the net, including this site. which is prolly why perez makes anyone whose believes in conspiracy theories look "crazy". but they control and monitor everything, its not paranoia—its fact. and its very discerning that 80% of ppl on here think its impossible or untrue. wake up people.



  86. 86

    On this she is right.
    The outfit she wore while she was 9 months pregnant at the
    grammys now that was crazy. Keep making records bb.



  87. 87

    Damn y'all are some paranoid people. It just goes to show you that #1 Americans are overly self-important…#2 a little knowledge combined with a stupid, gullible public makes conspiracy theories flourish. Try looking at the complete picture instead of a few sentences that make good conspiracy print. NOBODY CARES WHAT YOU ARE THINKING ABOUT, YOUR PARTY, YOUR SEX LIFE, YOUR FAVORITE CLASSES OR WHAT GAMES YOU LIKE TO PLAY. This is NOT high priority info for the government. Dumb asses.



  88. 88

    Re: Dixie77

    Open your eyes. She's more right that you know. Your entire life is controlled, the way you think, the way you talk, what you see, read, hear….

    Ask a marketing company how many clients are interested in what you think about, your sex life, your parties, your favorite classes. Marketing companies now employ psychologists, sociologists, and anthropologist who study human behaviors, social patterns, and cultures, so they can sell that information to the highest bidder.



  89. 89

    WTF PEREZ, I POSTED MY SHIT ON HOW SHE IS RIGHT. WHY IS MY SHIT NOT POSTED U WANA BE STAR COCK SUCKER!?



  90. 90

    well…if its more easy 4 u guys to believe shes all nuts…gohead….keep on livin a dream….but yes… we are all bein watched… and there is no way to runaway…. the walls are closing in ..and gets tighter everyday…. just take a look around…..dont u register a new computer when u buy it? dont u have personal information? they will say …its for your safety…

    dreamers are the best buyers…always



  91. 91

    If they were U.S. government plots to spy on us Americans, then explain why to me, M.I.A., it is that these websites are international?



  92. 92

    WOW PEREZ ITS SO SAD THAT UR READERS ARE SUCH IDIOTS THAT THEY ONLY READ GOSSIP…IF U GO TO AN ACTUALLY BOOK STORE U WILL SEE MANY BOOK ON THIS GOOGLE/GOV/CORP TAKEOVER IN THE BUSINESS SECTION ………GOOD LUCK IN LIFE YOU PATHETIC AMERICAN LOSERS HAHA CALLING M.I.A.
