Let's face it, this shooting has been exposed. It is part and parcel of a coordinated attack to deplatform right wing media on the internet that has been ongoing for at least 6 months.
It first began with Alex Jones, then Gavin McInnes, a youtube swipe that removed a healthy chunk of content, twitter bans, and facebook removing right wing content. This attack at half/full chan is the last stage of the attack.
They know that if they can get 4/8 removed from the internet, the gathering place for 90% of right wing content on the internet is gone.
Historically, they haven't been able to touch 4/8 chan, because most all of the posters here reel in horror at the very notion that violence is an option. Mostly because no one would be stupid enough to admit it on the internet, but secondarily because if they can catch a site advocating violence, they can get an injunction from the justice department to shut it down.
They are actually trying to shut it down right now.
This strategy was three pronged.
1. Hire a military trained asset to kill a bunch of unarmed civilians in a mosque
2. Write a manifesto implicating these sites as the place of radicalization and post it on the internet.
3. Warn on one of these sites that you are going to do the attack, GoPro the event and livestream it on facebook. That way, you are guaranteed that someone will save it.
4. When the media finds out, infest both boards with actual shills now advocating violence and support for the killings.
The next step will be to injunct the site with a writ from the justice department, and voila, no more 4/8 chan.
We can't afford to let them win this. If they win, they have struck what might be fatal blow to right wing ideas on the internet for the foreseeable future.Post too long. Click here to view the full text.
