[DISCORD] Foreign Troll

0

There was indeed a foreign troll who sought to sow discord in American politics, but what blows my fucking mind is that people seem to think this can be used to excuse their behavior.  It can’t.

A foreign troll wasn’t responsible for fanatical, ideological “journalism”.  No foreign troll can be held responsible for people continuing to spread propaganda even after it had been debunked.  No foreign troll can be held to account for people fabricating new reasons to demonizes those kids (or ignore the flagrant racism of both the Black Israelites and Nathan Phillips’s goons), and a foreign troll did NOT — in any way, shape, or form — prompt any of the violent rhetoric we’ve seen from the Left.

>Friend posts viral Anifa meme.

>I point out that he obviously hadn’t watched the video.

>Friend replies that there were multiple videos and tells me I need to do more Internetz research.

>I (politely) ask friend if he can provide a video clip of those kids doing a single thing mentioned in the meme.

>Friend immediately unfriends me.

Seriously, people — are we not even *pretending* to care about truth anymore? And you wonder why I check out for years at a time?  It’s because I truly cannot relate to what’s going on inside your heads.

We used to have opinions. Our *own* opinions.  We understood the difference between opinion and fact, and we used to be able to disagree with other opinions without despising the people who held them.

Your hatred frightens me.

Mock outrage is not a substitute for moral courage, and the harsh reality is that you aren’t even impressing one another.

You aren’t virtue signaling to elevate yourselves in the eyes of your fellow NPCs — you’re virtue signaling because you’re so damned anxious about being judged by your pale skin and privileged Northern Virginian upbringing.  Which is unsurprising, considering how dedicated you are to demonizing both.

In the words of someone you all hate (yet have never read):

“You can fake virtue for an audience.  You can’t fake it in your own eyes.  Your ego is your strictest judge.”

Take a long hard look in the mirror and ask yourselves who it is you think you’re fighting and what exactly you think you are fighting for.

BE BETTER.

Memo to L

Hey, you’re wrong about the NPC meme being right wing, and 4chan had very little to do with it.  The 4chan mods HATED it, and almost every NPC-related thread was pruned shortly after its creation.

(They also began censoring the term ‘soy boy’ at this point.  But antisemitic and racial slurs are still a go. 👌)

There’ve been people of all different political persuasions involved in the central aspects of it — the memes, the memeing, the LARPS, the RL appearances, the articles, the videos, etc.

The beauty of the NPC meme is that it’s only offensive to the people to whom it applies.  It isn’t solely applicable to the Regressive Left, but they’re at the center of the current culture war (pushing the rest of us off into the ‘alt-right’ category), so that’s how it’s being used.

Also, don’t believe a damn thing you hear about the NPC meme from the mainstream media.  They‘ve been among our primary targets, which is why they’ve been our greatest detractors.

There were never 10,000 Twitter bots.  The retweet-bot idea was discarded 48 hours in because: capchas.  There were real people behind these accounts, and the idea was to provide a steady stream of freebased identity politics while promoting awareness of social media censorship.

We never set out to influence an election, and the NoMenMidterm meme (from July) only made a comeback after the mainstream media decided to integrate it into its “voter suppression” narrative.

When they reported that we were giving out a false voting date, we put out word to push THEIR November 7th voting date.

This is what they do. The media brought the racism and antisemitism over to 4chan back in the mid-2000s when they began reporting on non-existent racism and antisemitism.  The racists and antisemites swarmed in.

The rise of Anonymous shortly thereafter was the direct result of Greta van Susteren’s sensationalized accounts of a series of mean-spirited adolescent pranks.  Actual hackers moved into /b/ and brought with them a political agenda.

The media’s practice of creating its own news is what brought the NPC meme to life in the first place.  It had been dead for over two years when some idiot journalist decided to dig it out of the meme graveyard and claim it was being used to “dehumanize” SJWs.  The “alt-right trolls” were only too happy to comply.

10,000 “Bots” My Ass

This is about as “fake news” as you can get.

For the most part, these “bots” were people, and what these brave souls were doing was parodying (or otherwise copypasta-ing) the “opinions” of the Regressive Left — which still doesn’t violate Twitter’s TOS.

(This is why Twitter has to label them all ‘bots’.)

And the analytics involved weren’t nearly as sophisticated as they make them out to be.  Couldn’t be, not after the backlash following the second purge, when legitimate BlueWave accounts were inadvertently deleted. 🤣

Also, the “late September to early October” timeline is patently false — unless their math is more woke than mine.  But I suppose Jack wishes to distance himself from his more recent acts of censorship, because: BLEXIT.

That’s right, folks: #BlackLivesMatter only until they decide to #WalkAlway.
