I read an article on CNN tonight in which CNN brags (link to the archive cuz why give them clicks and they deleted their threats without stating why) about threatening the reddit/the_Donald user who made the original WWE meme by replacing Vince Mcmahon’s head with a CNN logo showing Trump taking down “CNN”, which Troll in Chief Donald Trump retweeted (see above) in a modified version.
From the original CNN article:
After posting his apology, “HanA**holeSolo” called CNN’s KFile and confirmed his identity. In the interview, “HanA**holeSolo” sounded nervous about his identity being revealed and asked to not be named out of fear for his personal safety and for the public embarrassment it would bring to him and his family.CNN is not publishing “HanA**holeSolo’s” name because he is a private citizen who has issued an extensive statement of apology, showed his remorse by saying he has taken down all his offending posts, and because he said he is not going to repeat this ugly behavior on social media again. In addition, he said his statement could serve as an example to others not to do the same.CNN reserves the right to publish his identity should any of that change.
They found the reddit user’s personal information, forced him to apologize or they would dox him, and said they would dox him in the future if he ever swayed from “the narrative”. He is being blackmailed by CNN and they are bragging about it on their front page. What kind of world do I live in?
I’m pretty horrified. This could happen to anyone who is engaged in wrongthink now in 2017, which is a lot of ideas, including thinking people shouldn’t be criminals for using the wrong pronouns, being a Trump voter, being a Nobel prizewinner who believes IQ matters, etc. The year 2017 has turned into Orwell’s 1984, with the 2 minute hate for the alt right (see the “is it ok to punch a Nazi” discussions, starting at Salon. Note that Spencer doesn’t identify as a Nazi, but that doesn’t matter, does it? 2016 logic is “everyone we don’t agree with is a Nazi, including all Trump voters. Oh and punching Nazis is legit.”) and, for example, the memory-holing of the chromosomal relationship to gender, as tiny examples of the 1984-creepiness; you may not even have noticed it if you’re in liberal bubble land where Trump is Hitler and anything you do to fight Trump and his supporters is considered good (I hope to post soon about how this very same thought process is what led to the deaths of >100 million people under various communist regimes, but that will have to wait till next time) but at least today, if you engage in wrong think you don’t get thrown in prison or a Gulag (yet), not in the USA. Thought crime is punished in the USA via attacks on one’s economic life and threats to one’s family’s economic health, not on one’s physical body via the state, in general, though the Antifa left wing terrorists are known to attack the physical body as well and his doxing would have put his family at risk of economic and physical attack by them.
I had been amused at how CNN was triggered (letting trolls trigger you only makes them stronger, that’s the first rule of the internet CNN!) by the WWE tweet that is obviously a joke to anyone with a functioning sense of humor who knows an iota about the WWE, which I used to watch with friends in college. CNN was freaking out that Trump’s tweet was somehow a call to violence against journalists. Well, that’s not very bright. Firstly, it was a CNN LOGO, not a journalist, so it’s obviously not about violence towards a journalist but a meme about Trump’s war with CNN, the NETWORK. Finally, EVEN THE BIGGEST WWE FANS DON’T TAKE WWE WRESTING SERIOUSLY AS VIOLENCE!!!!! Everyone knows the WWE is fake! That’s what makes the meme funny, guys! How are journalist so out of touch that they really think this is something they should freak out about? And how do any viewers become so enslaved to CNN propagandists that they actually fall for this line? Are all their viewers laughing at them or just going along with this “WWE tweet is tyranny” crap? It may not be presidential as compared to historical presidential character, (Trump is the troll in chief, but at least it’s entertaining) but it’s certainly funny and not a call to violence against reporters, you nincompoops! Are people that easy to manipulate? This is the girl who watched her boyfriend be brainwashed over the internet, I should know the answer to that one…
On the 4th of July 2017, CNN celebrated our nation’s independence and founding on the principles of freedom, especially freedom of speech, by shitting all over those values by threatening to dox someone who made a funny meme they don’t like? Thanks CNN!
This has to end. We need to have economic networks that are Western, which means, dedicated to freedom of thought and free inquiry. A network of companies that we will spend all our money at, and none of our money at their competitors, where every company in the network agrees that it’s employees can hold any private beliefs they want as long as they don’t represent their company with them. We cannot let freedom die because we want to keep our jobs and don’t want to be cyber or real life bullied by left wing terrorists. I’m not sure what can be done, but I know that THIS MUST END! It’s a slippery slope to the Gulags, as I learned from reading the Gulag Archipelago, review to come, and the longer we stay silent the further we slip into totalitarianism. Just look at our Canadian neighbors to the North, who have pass insaned bills recently to denounce “Islamophobia” which generally includes rational criticism of the ideology of Islam, and another bill coercing people to use the gender pronouns of any person’s choosing. That is where we are headed if we stay silent. Europe is even worse, where criticism of the invasion of Germany by Muslim migrants due to the welcoming mat placed on their path by Merkl and the EU is now censored using the help of an ex-Stasi agent! Freedom isn’t free. We have to fight for it. I’m not sure what to do. I hate living in 2017 when it’s actually 1984! How else do we stop the deterioration of free inquiry in Western civilization when we technically have free speech in the USA but aren’t allowed to question certain tenets of progressive religious dogma without economic death and bullying by the media?
On a final side, note, praise Kek! I’m starting to think I should just convert to the Kekistani religion, since Catholicism is not a great fit for me and all other religions seem to suck, but nihilism also sucks. Meme magic is real. The way CNN attacked a reddit user over Trump’s tweet may just be the FINAL downfall of CNN, thus bringing Trump’s tweet about CNN being tackled to the ground into reality. Apparently this threatening someone if they exercise their free speech thing is illegal, which is probably why they edited the story already tonight. RIP CNN.
