24 February 2018. Where’s the REAL Troll Farm?

________________________

I’m seeing it everywhere. Useful idiots are calling any red-blooded US citizen who disagrees with them a Russian troll. They attack actual Americans with their neo-McCarthyite bullshit… attacking actual progressives with their neoliberal narrative. I’m as red-blooded as they come (part native blood too, get off MY land), canvassed a year-and-a-half for Bernie, then went on to help elect three progressive city council candidates, was an activist for NoDAPL, BLM, Justice For Andy Lopez, an anti-war activist, live in California, just moved to Lake County where I have chickens, sheep, and horses, and work with municipal clean energy providers that are putting California on overdrive towards a green infrastructure.

You’re going to call ME a Russian troll? You’re going to call my compatriot American progressive activists, people who probably practise more actual American activism in one week than you do in a year, you’re going to call THEM Russian trolls? Fine. Then, let’s just agree that we can assume that anyone who calls anyone else a Russian bot is a Correct The Record troll because, as a progressive, that was certainly the only trolling with a significant presence that I saw in 2016. They directly attacked progressives using neoliberal narratives and the dirtiest tricks. Slimy, disgusting, weaponised hypocrites, paid professionals who’d run ten sock puppets at a time. That sounds exactly like what you’re doing. Calling an American a Russian bot when that American is simply expressing their own political views is EXACTLY what a CTR shill would do. There’s no reason for me to assume other than that you are one.

Since we’re all running around with our pants on our heads and our armpits on fire about troll farms, how about we get some indictments for Hillary Clinton’s troll farm, Correct The Record and its offspring ShareBlue? As opposed to the Russian troll farm, whose goal was to make clickbait cash, those VERY well-funded troll farms had the specific task of infesting pro-Bernie groups and progressive activist groups to sow dissent, manipulate discussion, and corrupt conversation. Seriously, these people were the worst, to the point that “somebody” posted kiddie porn on some Bernie activist Facebook groups (225,000 activists were in those groups), getting nine of them shut down right as the New York primary was happening, along with all the illegal voter roll activity.

Now, I’m not saying there’s any connection between the poster of kiddie porn and CTR, but wouldn’t this clear-cut case of a troll farm manipulating the election deserve to bear just as much scrutiny, given that there were actual crimes committed in this case as well? Yet, they insist, “No, more scrutiny!” Whereas CTR had the clear intent specifically to manipulate the electorate and its political opinion and squash a political candidate, clearly, the Internet Research Agency was, as the indictment indicated, solely dedicated to using already-existing political opinions to generate profit. It’s weaponised hypocrisy. It’s situational morality. It’s pretending to care about electoral manipulation. They use this weapon opportunistically. If you’re not screaming as much about Correct The Record as you are about “Russian trolls”, you’re just revealing your own disingenuousness.

Clintonistas accuse others of being trolls to hide their own trolling. By the way… Eddie Snowden evaded all his tails… it shows that Deep State operatives aren’t as good as they claim they are. In like manner, Chilly Hilly’s trolls weren’t very skilful either. We caught them with their hands in the cookie jar… ergo, their lies about Russian trolls. That is, the servitors of the neoliberals aren’t particularly bright or competent, but they ARE vicious and mean-spirited, so do have a care. The main venue for such attacks seems to be Facebook. Several times, when I was posting a comment, someone piggybacked porn onto the content. Of course, I hit “edit” and removed the porn. I’m very careful with any comments posted on FB. It looks like Zuckerberg is allowing Clinton operatives to attack their enemies on this platform (of course, he’d blandly deny it in public, so one has to use the construction “looks like”… but we all know that it passes the “smell test”).

It’s real… it’s serious… so be vigilant and make sure that your comments don’t have any unwanted schmutz added to them. If so, simply edit it out… don’t complain, it doesn’t do any good. I note that such has become rarer in my case… perhaps, they see that their efforts are for nought. Be wise… be prudent… keep your wits about you. The Clintonistas are feral and vile. NOTHING is illicit for or to them. Yes, I repeat, have a care. I do have a final warning… don’t argue with Hillarybots… they won’t listen and they’ll go crying to FB to have you banned. Also, beware “Anti-Trump” groups… I was in one and they basically kicked me out for not kissing Hillary’s ass big-time and incessantly. Such groups seem to be run by the same bunch that ran CTR… they have the same mentality. These people are feral… never forget that… they’ve perverted all too many minds… do have a care with friends who’ve drunk their Kool-Aid. Remember… you can never “unsay” something. What a disgusting time we live in…

10 February 2018. You Can’t Please All of the People All of the Time

Filed under: internet — 01varvara @ 00.00
Tags: , , ,

________________________

I got an amusing thing in my commboxes recently. I disabled “comments” long ago, so this person had to go back and find an old post that still had comments enabled. That wasn’t easy, kids! Why they did so is puzzling to me… I’m not important at all and they went to a great deal of trouble to diss me (so they thought). This Einstein wrote:

You are serving Satan.

They signed themselves:

Screaming Orgasm

ulitsa666hell@gmail.com

What a maroon! If you take a stand on anything at all, you’ll attract opposition (note well that the above opponent lacked the guts to sign their real name and gave a bogus email address, too). If you look at the commboxes of most material posted on the web you’d find that most comments are meretricious tendentious rubbish posted by ignorant shit-fer-brains yahoos. Rightwingers are the most scurrilous… especially, the anti-Semitic lot. However, I find that “liberals” with their condescension and the “religious” with their self-righteousness are even worse (armchair theory-spouting “leftists” are in the same bag). The worst are Orthodox konvertsy, who throw hissy fits if you don’t agree with their mooning about Serafim Rose or their obsession with guns, gays, and abortion.

If you take a stand, someone is going to throw stones at you. Full stop. Pour yourself a measure of something good and smile. You can’t control anyone else or how they think of you. Full stop. Don’t be a childish moron like they are. You took a stand… someone attacked you. Grow up. As I like to say:

If you hate me and want to tear me down in public, you’re not the first. Join that long line on the right. However, before you do, notice that the line of those who support me, over there on the left, is equally long.

Keep your wits, keep focused, and SMILE. It riles ’em when they realise that they haven’t “made your day”. However, do take my hand… the times aren’t good and the road ahead is dark… only a joint effort will win the day. Reflect on that…

1 February 2018. How to Confound Sucky Zucky’s Hamfisted Attempt at Censorship

The FB wonks at work… denying people easy access to the material that they want to see…

_______________________

Zuckerberg didn’t remove any pages from FB… he simply had his wonks come up with an algorithm that’d keep them from appearing on your timeline. There’s a way around his snarky attempt at censorship. I warn you… it’s tedious and it’ll take you some time to do. You must go to “Liked Pages”… then, you must go to “Followed” and click on that. Then, click on “See First”. You must do this for all your liked pages individually. They’re not making it easy for us, but we can get around Zuck’s snarky-ass attempt at telling us what we can see and what we can’t see.

DO NOT fall into anti-Semitism because of this. Yes… many of Russia’s enemies are Jewish… but more are not. Moreover, many Jewish people are sincere friends of Russia and the Russian people. Don’t be a Brother Nathanael or like Russian Insider. Most Jewish people are innocent… at worst, many are dupes. The number of actively hateful shits like Sucky Zucky isn’t large. Yes… they’re there… so’s Professor Cohen and those like him. Keep your bearings and don’t let hate win the day.

13 January 2018. Two Things Upped My Productivity Recently

________________________

Two things upped my productivity recently. Let’s start with the simpler item… I bought an ordinary ten-buck keyboard and plugged it into the laptop (actually, into a splitter box, but let’s not get too technical). Laptop keyboards are SHITTY. On top of that, some of the keys weren’t functioning at par. They weren’t dead, but it was difficult to get them to work correctly. That slowed down my speed considerably and made it harder to do any creative writing whatsoever. With an ordinary desktop-style keyboard, my speed quickly went back up to where it should be, and if there’s trouble with it, I need only shitcan it and replace it with another ten-buck wonder.

Secondly, we were hacked seriously. In correspondence with friends, this has happened recently to all sorts of anti-Hillary people. For instance, the Hillarybots hacked the email of Ajamu Baraka and the Green Party. They scream about “Russian hackers”… what lying sacks o’ shit! They’re the ones who resort to hacking and computer manipulation as a first resort, not the Russians (who do a good job of deterring and countering American cyberattacks, thank you very much). It cost us a bit of money, but we put up cyberdefences against any further such shenanigans. Remember… Hillary wanted Eddie Snowdon’s head… but he was able to foil her and her sock-puppet Obama. Sadly, we weren’t the only people it happened to… coincidentally, all of them were anti-Hillary to one extent or another. Fancy that…

Therefore, I’m getting back up to snuff… actually, the biggest improvement is having a real keyboard to punch. It’s FUN tickling the keys… that is, if you’re a ten-finger typist like me. Have a good one, all…
