@Operation_KKK’s List of Questions with Answers — #OpKKK #HoodsOff

via TradYouth

The dumpster fire of poorly executed social media vigilantism, #OpKKK, is trying to stake out some intellectual and moral high ground to go along with their most likely underwhelming dox dump due out tomorrow. They’ve assembled an absurdly long string of “deep questions” to provoke a conversation about race. I’m not in the KKK, of course, but it’s quite clear that the KKK is shorthand for just about anybody who’s not outright anti-White.

Not one to shy away from a conversation about race, I took it upon myself to answer every single question.
Here are a few talking points / springboards for the OpKKK Tweetstorm on November 4 2015. We believe in the power of public discourse and we would like to discuss race, racism, racial terror, the internet & how it intersects with freedom of speech/expression in the United States. Please make your voice heard. We know that talking about race and racism will never be comfortable for all people. However, we must deal with the elephant in the room and talk our way through messy, painful experiences. Our goal is to create an OpKKK community of both respect and support in which we can discuss difficult topics openly and honestly. . We will never move beyond our present circumstance if we do not listen to one another and also be heard by one another. Please use hashtags #OpKKK and #HoodsOff when you tweet.
1. How would you define race?
History and social circumstances influence the language we use to describe the marked and meaningful biological differences between humans whose ancestors have adapted over millennia for differing regions and habitats. In zoology, a commonly accepted rule of thumb is that a population can be generally defined as a sub-species when one can distinguish one population from the other at least half of the time. While human racial diversity is clinal rather than cladistic, with a smooth and gradual gradient from the Congo to the Alps, humans whose ancestors are exclusively from the Congo can be distinguished from humans whose ancestors are exclusively from the Alps with complete certainty.

If it weren’t for all of the social and cultural baggage which comes with defining and describing one’s own species, a dispassionate zoologist who didn’t happen to be human could perhaps be expected to delineate humans into around a dozen subspecies (races), each of which originates from a certain region, tends to possess certain distinguishable characteristics, and reliably carries tell-tale genetic markers which confirm common ancestry with others who share those characteristics.

2. How many races do you think there are? What are they?
As previously stated, it’s clinal rather than cladistic, so in theory an arbitrary number of races could be proposed. That truth doesn’t negate the reality of race any more than the various canine hybrids negate the existence of dogs and wolves. Those born with intersex genitalia, effeminate men, and masculine women don’t negate the reality of gender, either.

The appropriate exactitude is dependent upon the situation. For instance, “Black” suffices in most contexts, while an anthropologist may wish to subdivide that into groups within the Black population which are quite genetically distinct, namely the bushmen of the Kalahari desert, the Mbuti pygmies of the Congo, the Bantu, the Nilotic “skinnies” of East Africa, and the often dark-skinned Arab, Berber, and Afro-Asiatic populations of North Africa.

3. Where do you feel your ideas about race come from? What are your sources of information?
I gathered my ideas about race from a variety of sources. Charles Murray’s Bell Curve was perhaps my first introduction to meaningful racial differences, though Lothrop Stoddard, Madison Grant, and Wilmot Robertson were also major early influences. More recent genetic analysis and the population migration inferences derived from data models made possible by the large and growing body of genetic data and information about that genetic data are also invaluable sources of information.

4. What race do you identify with most?
I identify with the White race, though I quite possibly have trace Amerindian admixture.

5. What is ethnicity?
It’s often said in mixed families that “blood makes you related, but loyalty makes you family.” That’s kind of handy for helping understand the difference between race and ethnicity. Some ethnicities, like the Brazilian or Jewish ones are actually transracial, spanning multiple racial types. Others, like my White American ethnicity or the Japanese ethnicity, are defined more heavily by racial ancestry. Race is a biological thing, while ethnicity is a sociological thing. It’s a tribe, an extended family.

Race is something which can be tested with a blood sample, while a person’s ethnicity involves a man’s blood, his loyalty, his self-identification, his upbringing, his language, his myths, his religion, and the kinds of jokes he gets.

6. What various ethnicities do we have in our world?
There are certainly far more ethnicities than there are races. There are hundreds of ethnic groups in the United States alone, and perhaps thousands of them globally, with the same clinal challenge which precludes putting a firm number on it.

7. What is your ethnicity?
My ethnic identity is “White American.” It could conceivably scale up as far as belonging to an “Anglo” identity shared by Australians, Englishmen, Canadians, and Americans, or scale down as far as my being a Hoosier, with customs and characteristics unique to my Southern Indiana heritage and upbringing.

8. How long do you think the idea of race has been floating around? Where did it come from?
Hominids have been stumbling onto other species and subspecies of hominids and noticing and naming those differences since well before that arbitrary point in time when Homo Sapiens sapiens emerged. Scientific taxonomies of races were among the earliest applications of scientific taxonomies themselves. Racial diversity is an integral (and wonderful!) aspect of the human condition which has always been with us. The earliest written records contain references to racial differences and labels for the racial “other.”

9. What are some of the ways that race has been used to rationalize inequality among people?
Social inequality has also been around as long as humans have been around. Throughout history, humans have relied on just about every excuse imaginable to justify unequal relationships, . . . when they were bothered to justify them. Naturally, humans who do not belong to the same tribe and who are color-coded for easy identification make natural objects of exploitation and oppression. In the modern South Africa, humans who have white skin are the objects of explicit and systematic employment, housing, and social discrimination regardless of their income or social status.

10. How has race been used to shift attention (and responsibility) away from oppressors and towards the targets of oppression?
Racially diversifying a society is a tried and true way for privileged elites to ensure their grip on power. Opening the border with Mexico and allowing tens of millions of economic migrants into America pits White and Black American workers against the new arrival for limited job opportunities with sinking wages. It weakens the power of trade unions against corporations, forces White and Black American workers to accept more stressful and unsafe working conditions, and results in ethnic tensions between the incompatible communities. This all detracts and distracts from the pursuit of social justice which demonstrably flourishes most commonly in racially homogeneous nation-states.

You want social harmony and equality? Check out the homogeneous Nordic countries. Just ask Bernie about it.

11. What is racism?
Racism is a loaded and politicized term generally deployed as an attack against White people and only White people. It’s generally inclusive of both healthy racialism (acknowledging and respecting racial diversity) and degenerate racial supremacism. Both the virtuous and vicious types of “racism” are bundled into the epithet, precluding a constructive dialogue on the subject of race.

12. What are the causes of racism?
Within the contemporary American context, “racism” is caused by being White. If you’re White, then you’re guilty of some form of racism, even if it can’t be demonstrated, proven, or even identified. “Racism” is essentially a form of blood libel deployed against those who are racially White by those who are anti-White (many of whom are themselves racially White). Racial hostility is caused by forcible integration of alien and incompatible racial populations. It’s caused by the inequalities which emerge between integrated groups, whether due to organic differences in performance or due to oppression.

Humans are competitive by nature, and the human condition is to some degree a zero-sum competitive game between the world’s populations. Steps can and should be taken to reduce and constructively resolve racial resentments and unfair inequalities, though racial hostility will never be completely eliminated from the human condition.

13. What racial stereotypes do we hold in our heads? What are the things we think but do not say? Do you act on these beliefs? How do you know?
I have a plethora of racial stereotypes in my head, most of which I come right out and say because I believe that integrity is a necessary step in constructively grappling with the contemporary American racial predicament. I do act on many of my beliefs, though a basic respect for my fellow man regardless of race precludes being inappropriately and unnecessarily insensitive or provocative in daily life. When I’m corresponding with a Jewish person, for instance, I’m more mindful of the potential that I may be the target of manipulation, as I believe they tend to be more manipulative.

14. What is terrorism?
Terrorism is a military and political strategy of terrorizing civilians to achieve military and political goals.

15. What is racial terrorism?
Robert Mugabe’s strategy of subjecting White farmers in Zimbabwe to gruesome and tortuous murder in order to ethnically cleanse former Rhodesians is one example.

16. What is dehumanization?
It’s more fruitful to ask the inverse question, since humans are only truly capable of caring about and for a few dozen other humans before they must necessarily rely on dehumanizing categorizations. While I theoretically understand that the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center were horrific, I didn’t break down and cry at the thought that thousands of innocent people had died. Had there been a single close friend or family member killed in the attack, I would have cried, since I humanize that single person more than the 3,000 strangers in the towers combined.

The more racial, geographical, cultural, social, and ideological difference between two individuals, the more difficult it generally is to humanize them. For instance, #OpKKK dehumanizes me as a reviled “other” because of my pro-White political beliefs. This even extends to dehumanizing my mother, posting the information of my alleged mother, “Sandra Parrott,” with the purpose of terrorizing her.

It’s not like we’re born loving all of humanity perfectly equally, only to start dehumanizing people as we grow up. An infant starts out only humanizing her mother and immediate family, then expands her circle of humanization as she grows and learns about the world around her. Attempting to achieve the goal of “humanizing” all of humanity for people is futile.

The best we can hope for is to discourage folks from vilifying other people inappropriately and unnecessarily. And y’all can start with yourselves, by taking the time to consider that perhaps some of the evil “racists” you’re targeting are living and breathing human beings just like yourself who have done nothing to deserve hysterically angry phone calls threatening to rape their wives and children and burn their houses down.

17. What is hate?
This is hate…

18. What is Freedom of Speech?
Freedom of speech is an abstract notion embedded in the American Constitution’s Bill of Rights which limits the government’s ability to censor political speech.

19. When is free speech not free?
From early on, there have been acknowledged edge cases where speech cannot be considered free. One must not yell “Fire!” in a crowded theater or issue a public declaration that the liberal mayor of Knoxville is affiliated with the Klan.

20. What is needed to have open and honest public conversations about race, racism and racial terror?
We can’t have one, because you won’t allow one. It’s a cardinal plank of the radical Leftist agenda that their political opponents be granted “No Platform” for the ideas they disagree with. The repeated claims to desire “a conversation about race” are reminiscent of Chairman Mao’s promise to “Let a Hundred Flowers Bloom” which was followed by a vicious crackdown on all the flowers that bloomed.

If an open and honest public conversation about race were desired, a libelous harassment and intimidation campaign against the other side of the conversation would be a backassward way to get the ball rolling.

21. What should the public norms be for discussing race and racism in a community setting?
In factory floors, office break rooms, and living rooms across America, normal folks of diverse racial heritage frequently have honest and respectful conversations about race. Radical Leftists like yourself stifle people and guarantee that the conversations cannot occur in public or community settings with an array of intimidation and harassment tactics. The first step toward establishing public norms for constructive dialogue on racial issues is preclusion of people who viciously harass and dox those with whom they disagree on matters of race and racism.

22. What is the difference between the intent of our words and the impact of our words?
You, for instance, are intending to strike a pose of academic detachment and intellectual curiosity with this list of questions about racial issues. The actual impact is unintentionally demonstrating your profoundly biased and narrow perspective on racial issues.

23. What is the harm of hate speech?
My family members have lost sleep and a degree of security in their daily lives as the product of repeated hate speech against myself and my extended family brought about by people like yourself who facilitate and provoke that hateful speech.

24. How do you balance a community’s best interest and an individual’s civil liberties? Is it possible to protect both without infringing upon either?
First, one must define a “community” and then one must figure out how to discern that community’s best interest. The question takes for granted that the best interest of the community is multicultural forced integration, juxtaposing that against my right to hold and share my political beliefs. If it weren’t illegal in America to peacefully self-segregate into our own communities, this question wouldn’t even need to be asked, since my political beliefs and my community’s interests wouldn’t be in conflict.

25. Can hate speech be dealt with socially versus legally?
My preferred method of dealing with hate speech is to hang up the phone or close the relevant browser tab. One of the consequences of a free society is that adults in such societies must tolerate ideas and speech they strongly dislike. Perhaps we can install giant “Trigger Warning” signs at America’s ports of entry. Social solutions work better than legal solutions in curbing hateful speech, which is why there’s very little of it in today’s society.

People don’t refrain from barking the N-word because they fear arrest. They refrain for fear of acute social disapproval.

26. Unpack some of the stereotypes you have been taught. What have you been taught or told to believe about other racial/ethnic groups?
I’ve been taught that Asians are good at math and that Blacks are good at basketball. Both of those stereotypes have been consistently corroborated over time. Stereotypes aren’t concocted at random in a laboratory. Blacks tend to like watermelon and fried chicken more than others. White girls tend to like pumpkin spice lattes more than others. Latinos tend to wear their masculinity on their sleeves.

There’s nothing immoral or problematic about being honest about our differences. For the most part, that’s all stereotyping is; it’s noticing our diversity. Sometimes the stereotypes are hurtful, like the stereotype that Black men commit more violent crimes. Nobody’s claiming that all Black men are criminals when they inculcate that stereotype that nearly every American, including Black men, have inculcated. And the first step toward eradicating that hurtful stereotype would be for Black men to stop committing violent crime at dramatically higher rates than other groups.

27. Most people today say they consciously reject racist attitudes and behavior. However, subtle forms of racism now flourish where over[t] racism once were. Is this an improvement?
Fundamentalist variants of Christianity tried to fundamentally change the nature of humans, and it failed to do so. While we should all strive to be virtuous, and we Christians should strive to abide by God’s laws, deviance and sin is an incontrovertible and universal quality of the human condition. You just end up with creepy stuff going on when you try to pretend humans are perfect. Marxists tried to do a similar thing with economics, and it resulted in an elaborate boondoggle.

You’re doing the same thing and it will fail just as hard. Racialism and racial realism cannot be driven out of humans.

28. What are the complexities of an interracial identity?
One complexity of having an interracial identity is that it makes it more difficult to find a bone marrow or tissue transplant donor. Another complexity is lacking that natural feeling of community and tribal inclusion which mono-racial folks can take for granted. President Obama’s biographical work, Dreams From My Father, is an excellent introduction to the often confusing, conflicting, and tortuous process of attempting to define one’s identity and place in the world when one doesn’t belong to any defined identity group.

29. Has someone from outside of your race ever called you a racial slur? What was this experience like?
Yes, earlier today. Thanks to you folks. It provoked amusement, as I’m quite secure in my racial identity.

30. What is the difference between biological and social views of race?
I suppose that “Black” might carry different social implications in Nigeria, Jamaica, and Detroit, despite biological racial consanguinity.

31. Who has benefited from the belief that there are biologically based differences between racial groups?
Children awaiting organ transplants benefit from the belief that there are biologically based differences between racial groups. Aging Black men benefit from the extra attention to potential heart issues that doctors who believe in biologically based differences between racial groups offer. Everybody ACTUALLY believes that there are biologically based differences and everybody benefits from knowing and sensibly acting on the truth.

32. Has someone from inside of your race ever called you a racial slur? What was this experience like?
I get called a cracker, honkey, peckerwood, and more by my identitarian friends on a daily basis. Generally speaking, words which often function as epithets from the outgroup are quite commonly terms of affection within the ingroup. I would never call a Black man the N-word without strong provocation, and I understand and respect their usage of the word among themselves.

If my fellow hillbilly calls me a hillbilly, it’s an affectionate term of endearment. If you call me it, you’re picking a fight.

33. Has a teacher/supervisor etc ever called you a racial slur? What was this experience like?
I’ve had a non-White supervisor refer to me as a redneck when I requested we have our business lunch at McDonald’s instead of an expensive ethnic restaurant. I was neither offended, scarred, nor affected in any negative way whatsoever by the incident. I accept that I embody and validate a good share of the negative stereotypes about folks of my racial, ethnic, and regional identity.

34. What are your thoughts about how victims of racism and bigotry feel when victimized?
I strive to avoid insulting or offending people, especially when it’s about stuff they can’t reasonably be expected to change. I think people should generally strive to be friendly and tolerant about our differences. That being said, I believe that anti-Whites try to pretend that there’s far more hurtful racism going on in America than there actually is, and that non-Whites are more fragile and vulnerable than they actually are.

35. What is your level of comfort in participating in public discussions about race?
Ready when you are, boss.

36. What are your personal views about the N word?
I think they’ve made substantial artistic and cultural contributions to America. I admire their athletic excellence. I think they’re often great humorists and excellent conversationalists.

37. What are the boundaries of free speech?
The girl in the embedded audio clip was dancing on that boundary.

38. What are hate groups trying to accomplish when they use the internet to publicize their ideas?
I’m glad you asked. We’re trying to reawaken a healthy sense of identity and shared purpose necessary to reconstruct ethnic communities around our shared heritage. We’re trying to serve as voices of advocacy and and defense for our extended family of ethnic kinsmen. To be completely honest, we’re also trying to accomplish some lulz from overly serious and stuffy Leftist dorks like yourself.

39. Do you think community discourse about race and racism are important?
Sort of, but not really. After all, if we’re legally allowed to self-segregate and mind our own business, then we no longer need to go back and forth forever until we can arrive at a consensus. People like myself who are clearly never going to be pliant cogs in your diversity machine should be allowed to opt out of the conversation and go do our own thing.

40. How does the internet impact issues of free speech? hate speech? fighting words?
The Internet broke the powerful Jewish and neo-colonial monopoly on political speech which precluded pro-White ideas from being expressed. The Internet let us out of the box y’all tried to lock us in.

41. Do you think it is significant that hate groups like the KKK use the internet to express their ideas?
The KKK is actually a very loose collection of several small and independent groups with very different philosophies. Some are violent and supremacist. Most have moderated and modified their ideas and messages over time and pose no threat of vigilantism or violence whatsoever. Every group which identifies with the Ku Klux Klan tradition has different ideas, all of which carry varying significance. The vast majority of pro-White people in America have nothing to do with the KKK.

42. Why do some people do hateful things to one another on the internet?
Start by asking yourself the question.
43. Why is it important to carefully examine information placed on the internet?
It’s important to carefully examine information placed on the Internet because it might have been placed there by a silly and irresponsible anti-White masquerading as “Anonymous” without any analysis, filtering, or consideration of unintended consequences.

44. How do stereotypes impact the way in which we see the world (bias)? How does this bias impact interactions with others?
Stereotypes help us see the world and its people more accurately, improving our interactions with others.

45. Share a story of witnessing racism. How did it make you feel?
I received an email just a few hours ago from a sender with some funny-sounding Nigerian-looking name. I disregarded it, since I’m racist against email from Africans. I felt nothing while doing this.

46. Share a story of experiencing racism. How did it make you feel?
I experienced racism when #OpKKK labeled me a “racist” and attacked me for having a sense of racial fellowship and pride that people of other races are permitted and encouraged to possess.

47. When did you first encounter the KKK (online, media, or IRL)? How did it make you feel?
I attended what was billed as a general pro-White unity gathering which also happened to be a klan gathering with a cross burning ceremony. Throughout the event, the speakers spoke exclusively about fellowship, pride, and the usual talking points. There was no lynching. There was no talk of lynching anybody. While there are racial supremacist groups out there which are dangerous and degenerate, those ones generally don’t have websites and don’t leave a digital trail for hackers and government agencies to follow.

48. What sort of hate speech on the internet is not protected by the 1st Amendment?
“Hate speech” is a loaded term inclusive of all speech that you hate. The only speech which isn’t protected by the first amendment is the sort of speech which common law tradition already deems illegal: slander, intimidation, harassment.
You know, the stuff you are doing.

49. Why do hate crimes occur?
Evil happens because Satan tempted Eve in the Garden, I reckon.

50. When groups like the KKK commit crimes against the public, should they be hate crimes or terrorism?
Crime is crime, and throwing all of these silly “hate” and “terror” enhancements on them opens a can of worms. Just last month, a non-White girl in England was arrested and charged for hate speech against White males. The laws are written in a neutral manner, and your side is the one which stands to lose if the government starts going after masked vigilantes. Ultimately, if I punch your teeth in, it doesn’t matter whether I did it because I’m drunk, because you cut me in line, or because you’re a Pacific Islander. It’s a crime to punch peoples’ teeth in, and I should be punished for it regardless of my motive.

51. What can we do to prevent the spread of hate-motivated behavior?
Allow people who don’t cotton to the social experiment of forced integration to self-segregate. Let my people go.

52. How do hate crimes impact your local community?
They don’t.

53. Can a hate crime be committed with words alone?
You’re really reaching here.

54. Can hate crime laws be used against hate on the internet?
With modern onion-routing network topologies, increasingly strong and accessible encryption technologies, and the intrinsically global nature of the Internet, your thoughtcrime faggotry is technologically obsolete.

55. What value do you place on free speech?
A government which doesn’t allow its citizens to speak the truth is tyrannical. Why do I need to explain this to Anonymous?

56. What speech on the internet is protected?
All of it’s protected if you know how to download and install the Tor Browser.

57. Some people believe people belong to distinct racial categories. Other people think we belong one race – the human race. What are your thoughts about this?
I think it’s a false dichotomy. I respect our common humanity, but I also value and cherish my family, my community, my ethnicity, and my race.

58. Should members of hate groups be allowed to serve the public?
You do realize that “hate group” is a made up word for a group which you hate, right? You’re trying to push the notion that you and your pals can declare that certain political ideas should be excluded from the political process.

59. What is hate speech? What is bullying? When does hate speech become bullying?
Hate speech is speech that you hate. Bullying is what White kids in majority-Black neighborhoods live with every day.

60. Do you feel your government does a sufficient job protecting its people from victimization by hate groups?
I feel my government does an insufficient job of protecting its hate groups from victimization!
61. How do you handle hate speech when you encounter it?
I edit it for grammar and style, then publish it and share it on our social media channels.

62. In what ways can we combat racism and discrimination?
Stop the hate and separate!

63. What do you think of interracial marriages?
I think it’s usually an unequal yoking and would advise against it. A coherent identity and community to belong to is one of the most precious gifts parents can offer their children. That being said, I have an ambivalent attitude about it. Y’all do your interracial thing, and afford us the social and political space we need to do our White thing.

64. What are your thoughts on the state of race relations in the United States?
I believe that our immigration and forced integration policies are increasing racial tension, that idealistic extremists like yourself are basically going to end up inciting a race war by incessantly shoving diversity down everybody’s throat.

I believe that racial issues will eclipse economic, social justice,  and other issues as the United States devolves into a circus of competing and conflicting tribes vying for power and privilege.

65. If you are originally from another country, is there a lot of racism in your home country? How does America differ?

66. Name one way you can combat racism.
I can avoid interacting with non-White people.

67. Have you ever been hurt by racism? How?
I suspect, with no way to ever know for sure, that I was deprived of educational opportunities on account of my working-class rural White background and identity. I don’t lose sleep over it.

68. Tweets about your thoughts, beliefs and/or questions about race/racism

69. Which country has the most racism?

70. Racism and homophobia – is one worse than the other?
I’m pretty cool with both of them.

71. How would you explain racism to children?
I would start with classic child-friendly minstrel tunes, perhaps.

72. What does a world without racism look like?
A world without racism would be a world without races, which would be like food without flavor.

73. Is it racist to use the term “white” to describe European Americans?
I can’t keep up with all of your silly word policing.

74. Is it racist to use the term “non-white” to describe African Americans?
That’s a stretch.

75. Can anyone be racist, regardless of ethnicity?
Everyone is racist, regardless of ethnicity.

76. Why is talking about race and racism uncomfortable?
It’s not for me. Perhaps it’s uncomfortable for you because you keep losing the argument?

77. Is it racist for sports teams to use terms like “Redskins” “Indians” and “Braves”?
No. Those sports teams were named in honor of the memory of the indigenous peoples and their legendary courage in battle. Limp-wristed faggots have a hard time understanding this sort of thing, but it’s common for a martial people who’ve defeated another martial people to commemorate their vanquished foes in song, story, art, and fame. I don’t follow sports and I’ll respect the wishes of the relevant surviving tribes, but the original intent of those names was the very opposite of racist, celebrating the fearlessness of the non-White war bands who fought to the last man against staggering odds.

78. Does the existence of Black, Latino, and Asian student groups combat racism, reinforce separatism, both, or neither?
They’re great. But the administrative and legal discrimination against White student groups is a classic example of institutional racism which stokes racial strife.

79. What is racial profiling and how does it impact your life?
I try to get in line behind White males when I’m at the grocery store. White males tend to use fewer coupons, waste less time with small talk, use credit and debit cards instead of checks, and just generally try to buy their groceries as rapidly as possible. That sort of racial profiling empowers me to get home sooner and spend more time with my friends and family.

80. If profiling on the basis of race is wrong, is it also wrong to profile on the basis of gender?
Both are super handy.

81. In cases of adoption, should agencies try to match the race of children with the race of the potential adoptive parents?
Yes. It’s one thing for an adult to go out of his or her way to participate in a sketchy Utopian experiment. It’s quite another to drag other peoples’ random children into the experiment before they’re old enough to decide for themselves.

82. Is it wrong to have an all-Black student dormitory? What about an all-White dormitory? Does the answer depend upon minority/majority status?
No. No. No.

83. How does free speech on the internet play out where you live and where you spend your time online?
It works out great!

84. What are the responsibilities of social media platforms to draw the line between fostering free speech and harboring hate?
Social media platforms are caught in a precarious balancing act. They’re under tremendous pressure from Leftist busybodies to waste millions of dollars monitoring and censoring their billions of posts. But they’re under even greater pressure to avoid reaching that tipping point where so many people are frustrated by censorship that they migrate to an alternative platform. Multiple social media platforms and Internet commons have already made the mistake of listening to the fanatical censors too much, and have become ghost towns as a result.

I’m ambivalent about social media censorship, as I win either way. If they censor our ideas enough, people will start migrating to more open platforms. You don’t have the control that you think you do. It’s very ironic that you claim to speak for and stand for Anonymous, yet your obvious goal here is censoring and silencing communication on the Internet. You’re poisoning the branding of “Anonymous,” and threatening its ability to serve as a useful apolitical and ecumenical vehicle for organized defense of free expression on the Internet.

Stop trying to cuckold “Anonymous.” You’re Antifa. #HoodiesOff
Free speech is a beautiful thing, although it is sometimes infuriating. We hope to hear your voice.
With love, @Operation_KKK
You’re welcome.
