Antifa/Alt-right – The Cyberwar

The alt-right’s latest attempt a cyber war with the left didn’t go well.

They did get a bunch of gun-toting white racists to show up at a park in Houston through, thoroughly duped into believing the statue of Sam Houston was about to be removed.

Somehow the white racists got confused by the fact that Sam Houston is honored in Texas for his pivotal role in establishing the State…And never had any part in supporting, or founding the confederacy of treason.Indeed, he was removed from office for refusing to support the traitors.

So as usual, the ill-educated, racist, confederate flag waving moronic assholes, got hoisted on their own Petard – defending a man, believing him to be a fellow confederate – when he opposed the confederacy in the first place. Not only did the antifas hoodwink the white supremacists to gathering in a park to oppose no one…But to protect a ststue that is at no risk of ever being removed in Texas.

“By any means necessary.”

Guffaws!

Texas Conservatives Fall for Anti-Antifa Hoax

The rally began, as so many armed conflicts do, with Facebook posts.

Older members of the crowd carried Confederate flags, while the younger, internet-driven masses wore patches with 4chan’s Kekistan banner. Rally-goers in homemade armor and semi-automatic rifles paced Houston’s Hermann Park, waiting for an enemy to appear.

The crowd, several hundred strong, gathered in the park on Saturday to defend a statue of Sam Houston, a slaveholder. They had gathered in response to reports that leftist protesters had planned a rally to remove the statue, despite Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner publicly stating that removing the statue wasn’t “even on my agenda.” But as sniper rifles and Infowars-branded jackets crowded the park, it became evident that the left protesters were not coming. They had never planned to come. The rumors of an antifa protest were actually a hoax, orchestrated by an anti-left group defending Confederate monuments.

The rally began, as so many armed conflicts do, with Facebook posts.

“We’re about to have a huge event in Houston June 10 with the combined forces of several large groups, perhaps our biggest ever,” the page Texas Antifa (short for anti-fascists) posted on May 18. “The Fascists better not show up with violence or they will be limping home bruised, broken, hurt, and crying with their tails tucked between their legs.”

The “Texas Antifa” is not a real group. The page is the latest in a growing genre of anti-antifa hoaxes, perpetrated by anonymous internet users on the right. Texas conservatives still fell for it.

Antifa have emerged as a perfect bogeyman for the alt-right, who have spent years online stoking fear about violence from imaginary enemies (usually people of color), or the perceived loss of their rights (usually at the hands of liberals, feminists, or family court). In antifa, the nebulous alt-right found an equally amorphous foe, one whose members openly boasted of punching the alt-right in the face. Alt-righters who go outside began planning armed counterprotests against antifa. And alt-righters on the internet began creating fake antifa accounts to discredit the largely anonymous movement.

One such parody account, @OfficialAntifa on Twitter, stirred outrage from the general public after it tweeted pictures of vandalized cemeteries on Memorial Day, purporting to have destroyed soldiers’ graves in an act of protest. The images, which actually contained images of years-old graffiti, were quickly picked up by alt-right conspiracy theorist Jack Posobiec, and disseminated to thousands of enraged followers. (@OfficialAntifa currently tweets anti-trans and anti-Muslim jokes.) A page purporting to be “Boston Antifa” drew the ire of actual New England antifa after it was revealed to be run by trolls.Image result for Antifa

In Houston, where Saturday’s protests took place, multiple antifa pages claim legitimacy. The Houston Antifa appears to be the longest-running account, active since January 2016 with photos of its demonstrations dating back to that month. But there’s also Antifa Texas-Oklahoma, as well as Texas Antifa (a “public figure” profile run by an alt-right user), Texas Antifa (a community page created last month that first advertised the June 10 protest against the Sam Houston statue), and Houston Antifa (a community page created last month that also advertised the protest and attempted to delegitimize the old Houston Antifa page).

In a Facebook messenger conversation, the older Houston Antifa page described the confusing state of affairs.

“Ah the beauty and the horror of anonymous decentralized organizing,” Houston Antifa told The Daily Beast.

Shortly after the Texas Antifa posted their plans to rally in Houston’s Hermann Park, the Houston Antifa took to Facebook urging readers to “unlike and unfollow this fake ass Texas Antifa page. Do NOT attend the June 10th Rally! This account was started a month ago and is in NO way, shape, or form affiliated with any actual Antifa Organization, PERIOD. Nice try, #MAGA chuds, go fuck yourselves.”

The Houston Antifa told The Daily Beast that “we are 100% positive that this group are outside actors/provocateurs and not just liberal centrists who are mistakenly proclaiming themselves ‘Antifa.’”

But just three days after the brand-new Texas Antifa page advertised its rally, the much-larger conservative group This Is Texas announced a counterprotest in response.

Image result for Sam Houston protest“Antifa has come out saying they will be bringing several large (communist) groups together to host a rally around the Museum District in Houston, Texas on June 10, 2017,” This Is Texas organizers wrote in a post to their nearly 4,000 members. “This list includes Black Panther Party, Antifa & more. Their goal is to remove the Sam Houston statue.” (This Is Texas did not return The Daily Beast’s request for comment.)

But the so-called Texas Antifa’s goal was actually the opposite. The page was secretly run by a group claiming to be affiliated with the hacktivist collective Anonymous. In a Facebook conversation with The Daily Beast, the group claimed to have 11 members, although it refused to offer proof that it was affiliated with a larger Anonymous group.

In a video uploaded to the Texas Antifa YouTube channel (not to an Anonymous account) on June 7, the group declared that they had actually created the page as a hoax to drive gun-toting conservatives to defend the Sam Houston statue, which Houston’s mayor has stated is not being considered for removal.

“It was always an Anonymous event to drive support and attention to an expired Texas law that protected its historical monuments,” the group said in its video. “It never made it to the floor because the Democrats used a filibuster to run out the time so it could not be voted on.”

“The right rarely has but 5-30 people at any given event,” the Texas Antifa page told The Daily Beast. “We gave them a well known enemy, a righteous cause, and an immediate threat.”

Some local media saw through the hoax. The Houston Press’ Craig Malisow debunked the Texas Antifa page as an alt-right prank on June 1, although the page’s moderators, still proclaiming their authenticity, took to Facebook to attack Malisow by name.

The other group only partially duped were alt-righters who were better acquainted with internet hoaxes.

“This is from a shitty satire page,” a 4chan user posted last week about the alleged antifa rally, “ignore it.”

Image result for Sam Houston protest

“The normies are gethering [sic] in Houston,” another 4chan poster wrote the day of the event. “Proof that America can be trolled into being great again.”

The statue defenders stormed the park, ready to defend themselves against the antifa and Black Panthers they had been told would be rallying. One young attendee, who was wearing an undersized Roman-style chestplate over makeshift military fatigues with a 4chan arm patch told the Houston Chronicle’s Evan Mintz that he’d donned the armor out of fear that antifa would stab him.

But no leftists appeared. Outside the amplification chamber of the internet, the rally goers were just a crowd of people wearing ill-fitting armor to the park on a sweltering Texas day.

After the crowd ambled home, This Is Texas leaders returned to Facebook to address allegations that the whole event had been driven by a hoax.

“For those who didn’t know Antifa showed up and was putting on their mask in the bathroom by the amphitheater, once they turned the corner & saw the crowd they thought twice about it,” the group posted. “The [sic] did tag downtown up with posters on street signs & the metro rail area. So to those that said this is a hoax, maybe think twice before you speak next time.”Image result for Sam Houston protest

The Houston Antifa said it was possible that the rally goers had spotted some antifa on their way to counterprotest at a nearby anti-Islam event, though its members had agreed to skip the hoax-driven in the park.

At least one This Is Texas organizer realized the makeshift army had been tricked.

In a now-deleted post, a This Is Texas administrator named Dave confessed his disillusion to the page’s followers.

“People – you were duped,” he wrote. “The charges you have heard about this being based on a hoax are all true. Did you see ONE Antifa, Black Panther, Black Lives Matter, or street gang member there??? At all?? ANYWHERE???

“We were told Black Panthers were mobilized from Atlanta and we were told ‘buses and buses’ of anti’s were on their way – never saw them,” Dave wrote. “Oh yeah – I saw a black guy with an AR-15, dressed in black, near the restrooms and thought YES! I found them! Then he stood up and I saw a Texas flag sweat towel in his pocket.”

Anonymous Threatens the Chumph…But Will They Deliver?

I have said all along that the Chumph’s background is rife with evidence of fraud, bribery, and other misdeeds.They are not that hard to dig out. Anonymous makes a lot of noise, but unfortunately the last few go-rounds haven’t really produced much of significant substance. So…For what it is worth.

Anonymous – A Paper Tiger?

Anonymous warns Trump: ‘You are going to regret the next 4 years’

The hacker collective Anonymous has a reputation for delivering ominous messages, and in recent days, the group has begun targeting President-elect Donald Trump in a serious way

A series of messages posted on Twitter and include allegations that the group plans to reveal sordid information about Trump.

“This isn’t the 80’s any longer, information doesn’t vanish, it is all out there. You are going to regret the next 4 years,” one message read.

In another, the group alleges Trump has “financial and personal ties with Russian mobsters, child traffickers, and money launderers.”

So far the hacking group has provided no concrete evidence to back up those claims.

Anonymous vs Ted Cruz

Got this one from over at Subrealism, which is a great somewhat right of center site run by a friend.

Anonymous is now threatening to expose Cruz’ visits to the ladies of the night. Not sure anyone in the Republican Party other than his wife and kids cares…But it is a thought.

Now…Who did Trump hire to do the video work?

Anonymous Data Release After First Hack of Trump

Anonymous released their initial data on Trump. So far, it is pretty much low hanging fruit from a hack standpoint, having recovered his private phone number and SSN.

I really can’t support the release of that sort of personal information.

Hillary’s opposition research people have hinted for months that they have the information to take Trump down. They certainly would realize that in business, a person like Trump would have left a long, long trail of documentation relative to his business dealings, US and possibly offshore bank accounts, and investor relationships. Sometimes it is as simple as following the money. Sometimes it is just enough to follow the people involved in approving or financing shady deals. Who is supplying the money to obviously poorly structured and badly conceived businesses for Trump?

If Anonymous wants to go after that…They may find something of value. It is also legal to do much of that.

Secret Service, FBI aware of alleged disclosure of Donald Trump’s personal info

The possible disclosure of Donald Trump’s personal information by hacking group Anonymous has been brought to the attention of the U.S. Secret Service.

“The U.S. Secret Service is aware of the internet postings of Candidate Donald Trump’s personal information. We are working with the Federal Bureau of Investigation in this matter,” the Secret Service said in a statement Friday.

On Thursday, Anonymous said it released the GOP presidential frontrunner’s Social Security number, cell phone number and other private information about him. The information was posted to Ghostbin.com and Pastebin.com. The group also posted personal information of Trump’s associates, including his spokesperson, campaign manager and some of his family members.

The cell phone number, however, was widely reported last summer, and Trump apparently repurposed the number

Anonymous Declaration of War on Trump

This could get interesting if it is real…  Attacking Trump’s Chicago Hotel though is rather pointless. Would think they would do far better going after making the licensing of the Trump name/brand a negative proposition, going after his state operations and mailing lists, and gathering documentation on his shady, and possibly illegal business dealings.

Anonymous Plans A New War On Donald Trump

Can the hacker group take him down?

Hacker group Anonymous is pledging once again to take on Donald Trump.

“Dear Donald Trump, we have been watching you for a long time, and what we see is deeply disturbing,” an Anonymous representative said in a video posted to YouTube earlier this month.

The statement is followed by a series of well-known clips showing the Republican frontrunner acting like a buffoon: insulting Fox host Megyn Kelly, mocking a reporter with a disability, alluding to how sexy his own daughter is, et cetera.

Anonymous follows that with a “call to arms” inviting anyone with a computer to spread the word and participate in “Operation Trump,” now labeled “#OpTrump.” The video ends with a message inviting “everyone to target” trumpchicago.com, a website for the candidate’s luxury hotel, on April 1.

The video is hosted on a different YouTube channel than some previous releases from Anonymous — so it’s difficult to say how “official” the clip is. That said, a well-known Anonymous account on Twitter — @YourAnonNews — has regularly tweetedanti-Trump messages since the clip was posted.

“Your inconsistent and hateful campaign has not only shocked the United States of America — you have shocked the entire planet with your appalling actions and ideals,” the new video says. “You say what your current audience wants to hear, but in reality you don’t stand for anything except for your personal greed and power. This is a call to arms.”

Anonymous previously declared war on Trump in December. It seems not to have slowed his momentum, but maybe second time’s the charm?

Anonymous Releases KKK List

The real Anonymous has released their Official KKK List.

The C of CC, one of the groups that should be targeted

Anonymous Reveals Full List Of Alleged KKK Members

“The reality is that racism usually does NOT wear a hood but it does permeate our culture on every level.”

The hackivist collective Anonymous released a much-anticipated list of people it claims are members or supporters of the Ku Klux Klan on Thursday night.

The group targeted the KKK in the wake of Michael Brown’s death in Ferguson, Missouri. They disclosed some contact information earlier this week, and promised to unveil the full trove onNovember 5th, Guy Fawkes Day.

The data dump, posted on Pastebin, began with an impassioned essay detailing Anonymous’ motives for the release.

“We hope Operation KKK will, in part, spark a bit of constructive dialogue about race, racism, racial terror and freedom of expression, across group lines,” the group said. “The reality is that racism usually does NOT wear a hood but it does permeate our culture on every level. Part of the reason we have taken the hoods off of these individuals is not because of their identities, but because of what their hoods symbolize to us in our broader society.”

Hackers spent 11 months gathering information on the alleged members, the group said, going to great lengths to confirm the identities as best as possible. They used public data and academic records as well as interviews with both experts and some of the KKK members themselves.

“We consider this data dump as a form of resistance against the violence and intimidation tactics leveraged against the public by various members of Ku Klux Klan groups throughout history,” Anonymous said.

Looks like they have about a fourth of the morons walking around in sheets type of racists – which isn’t going to include either the KKK in Suits groups (Council of Conservative Citizens), or the sympathizers and financiers of organized racism in the US. The last spending about $300 million a year to keep the racial pot stirred.Think they could round up some far more interesting fodder, as well as the names of some of the politicians released by the fake Anonymous group earlier this week if the dug that very deep and rich vein.

Yesterday’s Anonymous KKK List a Fake

Apparently, the list of people associated with the KKK released yesterday was a “Trojan Horse” designed to discredit Anonymous – released by the KKK or it’s conservative sycophants.

Although BTx3 still believes 3 of the 4 US Senators identified (sans Isakson) are probably KKK, or their conservative sympathisers. There is no evidence any of the Mayor’s mentioned has any relationship to the KKK, or is a bigot.

Anonymous denies link to list of alleged KKK members — and promises to release its own

Online hacking group Anonymous has denied responsibility for the recent publication of a list that claims some U.S. politicians belong to the Ku Klux Klan.

Last week, Anonymous said it would soon release the identities of about 1,000 members of the white supremacist organization. Anonymous is expected to release the details on Thursday, the day of the global protest movement known as the Million Mask March, in which demonstrators around the world will march in a protest against corrupt governments and corporations.

Anonymous denies it has any connection to the list of names, which was published Saturday on the website Pastebin. Most of the politicians included on the list—four Republican senators, four Democratic mayors and a Republican mayor—have denied the claims.

There is no evidence immediately apparent that confirms the details posted on the website. The posting user is identified as “Amped Attacks.”

U.S. Senator Dan Coats of Indiana took to Twitter to call the claim about him “baseless Internet garbage of the worst kind.”

In another tweet, he wrote, “For those who are asking—I have never had any affiliation with the Ku Klux Klan and deplore all forms of racial discrimination.”

A spokesman for Texas Senator John Cornyn and a spokeswoman for Georgia Senator John Hardy Isakson both told Newsweek the claims are “false.”

The document also names Republican Senator Thom Tillis, of North Carolina. His office did not immediately respond to Newsweek ‘s request for comment.

Five mayors were also named as KKK members. Madeline Rogero, mayor of Knoxville, Tennessee, released a statement on Facebook asking the parties involved to retract the list immediately.

“For reasons unfathomable to me or anyone who knows me, my name is on the list. Given my background, my interracial family, my public record and my personal beliefs, this would be hilarious except that it is probably being seen by a lot of people who have no idea who I am,” she said.

Mayor Paul Fraim of Norfolk, Virginia, called the action a “hoax” and “absolutely false.” Mayor Jim Gray of Lexington, Kentucky, said the allegation is “insulting and ridiculous.” Mayor Tom Henry of Fort Wayne, Indiana, also denied the claims.

Republican Mayor Kent Guinn of Ocala, Florida, called it “hurtful” during a press conference on Monday. Ocala Chief of Police Greg Graham said in a statement that law enforcement is working to resolve the situation.

Four separate lists, including 57 phone numbers and 23 email addresses, have been posted to Pastebin between Sunday and Monday.

The cyberwar began when the KKK began threatening people in Ferguson, Missouri, where people demonstrated against the August 2014 police killing of 18-year-old Michael Brown.
