he shows up every couple of weeks and posts things that are easily debunked, then stops posting about the things that have been debunked

he’s a shitposter that doesn’t care about how wrong he is

" okay... let me back up to before i even posted anything... because i want to make sure we are on the same page. i also dont want to put too much into a single post to make sure everything stays crystal clear.

1) timothy mcveigh was at gunshows passing out detailed information about feds to kill. has something like that happened recently that im not familiar with?

2) alternatively, are you guys saying threats on 4chan are the same thing (which is fine / i just dont equate them)?"


1) we have an example of a boogaloo shithead killing a fed already, no need to pass out info.
https://www.marketwatch.com/story/airman-charged-with-killing-federal-officer-in-oakland-tied-to-right-wing-boogaloo-movement-2020-06-16

2)Yes. Although I use 4chan loosely for all the “dark web” shitholes these people inhabit. Keep in mind the following list is from memory and some googling, hardly exhaustive:
Dylan Roof(Charleston church shooter)- posted hateful shit on 4chan, wrote a manifesto before his shooting
Christchurch, New Zealand shooter - posted on 8chan, wrote a manifesto
Pittsburgh, Tree of life synagogue shooter - posted hateful shit on gab
El Paso Walmart shooter - posted his manifesto on 8chan hours before shooting
Poway California synagogue shooter - posted a manifesto to 8chan

And on and on and on (I know I’m missing a shit ton of these).
You might view mass shootings as a different degree compared to a giant large scale bombing, but it’s really just a matter of time before one of these shitheads is successful at a bombing as well. It takes the same amount of hate to park a car bomb in front of a pre-school as it does to walk into a church and start blasting people with a rifle.
https://www.cnn.com/2019/11/22/us/colorado-synagogue-suspect-indicted/index.html

Also important to consider that 2018 was the deadliest year for right-wing related violence since McVeigh’s bombing:
https://www.adl.org/news/press-releases/right-wing-extremism-linked-to-every-2018-extremist-murder-in-the-us-adl-finds

I just think the threat is plain and right in front of us. It’s an extremely slippery and steep slope from our current hate filled environment to something that is much much much worse (hard to even think about).

Eh.

Dark Web is meant to mean stuff you can't get to via normal browsers, not just page 2 of Google results. 4chan is in the top 2000 pages by traffic, so it's not really dark web or dark web adjacent.

I know it's just stupid semantics, but I hate when media sources constantly use the term incorrectly

Hmm, how about “relatively unmoderated message boards, where hateful shit isn’t just allowed but is a part of the board’s culture.”

(This def isn’t my area of expertise)

I’d also point out, I’m not even necessarily going as far as saying we should seek to deplatform all these message boards, only that we should take people saying hateful shit seriously. The FBI missing Mcveigh was seen as an intelligence failure, so should missing the next bombers hate messages on 8chan be viewed the same way.

^^ were you aware of the editorial structure of the Ringer before the NYT piece?

calling advocates for diversity a mob isn’t the best look

remember that one time you freaked out about Simmons not wearing a tie during an interview with the president? if only you’d be more upset over a lack of diversity than that

What kind of psychopath concerns themselves about the "editorial structure" of an outlet that primarily discusses movies from the '80's and re-doing NBA drafts? Like, you got it pretty good if that is your biggest concern, which apparently for a lot of people it is.

And thank you for going back to look up a joke post from 8 years ago about a topic I don't even remember happening. You are clearly one of the psychopaths I am talking about above.

the piece could’ve been written about the vast majority of media companies. it just happened to be about Simmons and the Ringer.

it is not psychopathic behavior to strive for diversity. especially diversity at the top.

the fact that you went with psychopath to describe that need is telling.

I don’t think it’s really a matter of the politicians and media members not knowing what is and isn’t freedom of speech. I think they truly just don’t care that they misrepresent what it is...they’ll say it because it’s catchy, their supporters/listeners/fans will buy it and that’s all that matters. It fits their narrative and that’s all that matters.

Edit: the people in comments sections may really be that dumb. I was referring to dumbasses like Hawley crying about freedom of speech.

Also relevant. Apple threatens to remove Parlor (Parler?) from their App Store of changes aren’t made.

Another edit: seeing a lot of “removing public figures’ platform is authoritarian!” I didn’t realize a private company could be authoritarian.

Quote :
"Parler, a social network used to plan the storming of the U.S. Capitol last week, has been hit by a massive data scrape. Security researchers collected swaths of user data before the network went dark Monday morning after Amazon, Google, and Apple booted the platform.

The scrape includes user profile data, user information, and which users had administration rights for specific groups within the social network."
Quote :
"... the scrapped posts are linked to accounts that posted them, and some of the video and image data have geolocation information. That is said also to include data from Parler's 'Verified Citizens,' users of the network who verified their identity by uploading photographs of government-issued IDs, such as a driver’s license."
Quote :
"The data scrape includes deleted posts, meaning that Parler stored user data after users deleted it."
Quote :
"... the scrape was made possible due Twilio, an American cloud communications platform that provided the platform with phone number verification services, cutting ties with Parler.

In a press release announcing the decision, Twilio revealed which services Parler was using. This information allowed hackers to deduct that it was possible to create users and verified accounts without actual verification.

With this type of access, newly minted users were able to get behind the login box API used for content delivery. That allowed them to see which users had moderator rights and this in turn allowed them to reset passwords of existing users with simple 'forgot password' function. Since Twilio no longer authenticated emails, hackers were able to access admin accounts with ease."

I'm just now learning about the Epik Fail hack.

From one article that I read:

Quote :
"A Linux engineer tasked with conducting an impact assessment on behalf of a client who uses Epik’s services told the Daily Dot that the breach was one of the worst he had ever seen. The engineer did not have permission to speak about the breach by his employer and was granted anonymity by the Daily Dot.

'They are fully compromised end-to-end,' they said. 'Maybe the worst I’ve ever seen in my 20-year career.'

The engineer pointed the Daily Dot to what they described as Epik’s 'entire primary database,' which contains hosting account usernames and passwords, SSH keys, and even some credit card numbers—all stored in plaintext."

"The files include years of website purchase records, internal company emails and customer account credentials revealing who administers some of the biggest far-right websites. The data includes client names, home addresses, email addresses, phone numbers and passwords left in plain, readable text. The hack even exposed the personal records from Anonymize, a privacy service Epik offered to customers wanting to conceal their identity."

Maybe not the best thread to put this, but whatever:

Can someone explain to me this JFK Jr. thing? Why do the Q-nuts think he is going to return? And why do they want him to return? Do they think he'll become a leader of the Q movement and somehow reinstate Trump? And why JFK Jr.?

I don't get it. I know I could read more about it, but don't feel like it. I was hoping someone following it more closely could summarize it for me.

^^ Sorry for the amount of text, but this all seems relevant to your question, and the article may be behind a registration wall.

https://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/us-politics/jfk-jr-qanon-dallas-death-b1950618.html

Quote :
"John Fitzgerald Kennedy Junior's plane was pulled out of the Atlantic Ocean more than 22 years ago in a crash that killed him, his wife Carolyn and his sister-in-law, Lauren Bessette.

For some QAnon true believers, however, the son of the 35th president of the United States not only survived the tragedy but is poised to make a dramatic return to public life.

A bizarre theory has emerged suggesting that the accident was just a ruse to fake his death and that he will re-emerge... to join a reinstated President Donald Trump as his VP."
Quote :
"The story goes that after faking his death, Kennedy returned two decades later to help Mr Trump drain the swamp. First he supposedly appeared as Q himself (or close to Q) with the 'Q drops' of cryptic information. Then, he was to have revealed himself in 2019, to replace Mike Pence on the president's 2020 re-election ticket, or maybe the 2021 'reinstatement' (supposedly scheduled for 13 August – although there is no mechanism for reinstating a former president), or maybe the 2024 campaign.

The timeline has kept shifting with each passing milestone.

In the meantime, the lore goes, Kennedy has been in hiding, disguised as a middle-aged, fedora-wearing financial services manager from Pittsburgh named Vincent Fusca."
Quote :
"The theory appears to have emerged from an April 2018 Q drop resurfacing a pre-Q era theory in which JFK Jr's 1999 plane crash was orchestrated by the Clintons, supposedly to prevent him running for the New York Senate seat later won by Hillary Clinton.

Fact-checkers from Snopes had tackled this older strain of the conspiracy when it spread during the 2016 election, pointing to a New York Daily News article in an effort to debunk it.

Daily News journalist Joel Siegel wrote four days after Kennedy's death that two friends confirmed the 'best-kept' secrets in politics, that he had been seeking the seat.

'The idea became moot once First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton signalled her interest in running, but the two friends said they expected the son of the slain President eventually would have jumped into politics as a candidate,' the story said.

'The second friend called Kennedy's interest 'pretty serious,' adding: 'I think he was intrigued by the idea... Would he have decided in the end to go for it? I don’t know. But he was clearly thinking about it. He talked to a few people about it. Then the Hillary thing ended it pretty quickly.'

Writing for The Daily Beast, Mr Sommer has been following the evolution of that shifting pre-Q conspiracy, into a Q-conspiracy, since it emerged on 4- and 8Chan messaging boards around October 2017.

The summer of that year, a new poster going simply by 'R', later dubbed Ranon, connected the existing conspiracy that Kennedy faked his death by saying he did it to become Q so that he could help his friend, Donald Trump, become president.

The supposed evidence: Mr Trump met Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki on 16 July, the 19th anniversary of Kennedy's fatal plane crash."
Quote :
"Rolling Stone writer EJ Dickson continued pulling the thread and found the idea gained popularity after George W Bush campaign staffer turned investigative journalist Liz Crokin, formerly of The Chicago Tribune and National Inquirer, began tweeting and talking about the theory in 2018.

'Right after I shared this on Twitter there was a hit piece written about me and I'm thinking, that's really crazy, that is so bizarre, I just tweeted a theory that wasn't even my own, and said this is interesting and next thing there's a hit piece about me, calling me names... so that made me think, there's something to this,' she said in a YouTube interview.

'The way that Q talks about JFK Sr in the posts, it is with such love and passion, it makes me think that it is someone that is close to him. To me, if... JFK Jr faked his death and was alive, it would make sense that he was Q.'

More evidence came in the form of an (unverified) quote from Kennedy published in his George magazine just one month before his death.

He said: 'If my dear friend Donald Trump ever decided to sacrifice his fabulous billionaire lifestyle to become president he would be an unstoppable force for ultimate justice that Democrats and Republicans alike would celebrate”.

The two were friends, and the photo of them together used in the post was real, from a New York Knicks game in March 1999, three months before the June 1999 issue the quote claimed to be from. The closest quote fact-checkers from the Poynter Institute’s PolitiFact found was from a story in The New York Post in November 2016 from Michael Berman, co-founder of George magazine, when Mr Trump and Kennedy schmoozed at Mar-a-Lago.

'As frequently happened to Kennedy at his events, talk soon turned to whether he could envision himself running for president. Trying to deflect the presidential chatter, Kennedy noted that the Trump estate was far more glamorous than a Kennedy family compound a few miles away. 'I think you should be asking those questions of Donald,' Kennedy said, according to Berman. 'He’d clearly have the most extravagant winter White House.''"
