4chan has been taken over by the far right.
We have now leftists who seem to have no idea how trolling ops work unable to distinguish genuine friends from the trolling ops underway to discredit them.
I’m seeing people here like and retweet alt right activists attacking actual genuine left activists.
Just because someone is attacking someone in power DOES NOT MEAN THEY ARE A LEFT ACTIVIST.
Just because someone has some form of facts acquired in a murky manner DOES NOT MAKE THEM A FREEDOM FIGHTER FOR JUSTICE.
Just because an organisation a decade ago did something brave for transparency does not mean it is running on the same principles and not influenced by other interests.
I’m on / in many of the groups that are actively trying to subvert people like us. They are not playing fair, nice or telling the truth about who they are. No this is not a conspiracy theory, most of this is available with a quick reddit search.
Right now the trolling A-team is running rampart across the net and we are woefully unprepared thinking downvotes and if we are just nice and genuine people will see and the good guys will win. Well they are not.
We need better cybersecurty for our politics and our policies. We should do something. Number 1 issue right now for western democracy full stop. Don’t think the alt right is not going to data leak and meme Australia into a roadmap to a far right future.
And geezuz. When you have me coming to the defense of the left, ITS F’ING GRIM TIMES.
