Never Give Up! Never Divided!

Ah, man, I’ve been out of it: He Will Not Divide Us has been back since August. Only now it’s boring!

The joke was that Shia was going to stick his flag on a basement wall and film it and it seems like he’s done practically that.

He will not divide us flag on the wall

That really makes for some edge of your seat viewing.

Of course /pol/ already found it.

CNN, you have no idea what you’ve done

After squealing like a stuck pig for days about Trump “encouraging violence” because of a silly wrestling meme, CNN decided to up the ante and attack the redditor who was believed to have posted it in the first place:

How CNN found the Reddit user behind the Trump wrestling GIF

The Reddit user who initially claimed credit for President Donald Trump’s tweet that showed Trump tackling CNN issued an apology Tuesday for the video and other offensive content he posted — one day after CNN identified the man behind the account and attempted to make contact with him.

Reddit user “HanA**holeSolo” first shared the GIF last Wednesday of Trump pummeling a wrestler with CNN’s logo imposed on his face. CNN could find no earlier instance of the GIF. The GIF was later edited into a video with sound and tweeted by the President on Sunday.

On Reddit, “HanA**holeSolo” took credit for inspiring the tweet. Soon after, “HanA**holeSolo’s” other posts on Reddit, some of which included racist and anti-Semitic imagery, quickly circulated on social media.

Now the user is apologizing, writing in a lengthy post on Reddit that he does not advocate violence against the press and expressing remorse there and in an interview with CNN for other posts he made that were racist and anti-Semitic.

The apology came after CNN’s KFile identified the man behind “HanA**holeSolo.” Using identifying information that “HanA**holeSolo” posted on Reddit, KFile was able to determine key biographical details, to find the man’s name using a Facebook search and ultimately corroborate details he had made available on Reddit.

On Monday, KFile attempted to contact the man by email and phone but he did not respond. On Tuesday, “HanA**holeSolo” posted his apology on the subreddit /The_Donald and deleted all of his other posts.

The user further apologized for calls for violence against the press in his statement on Reddit.

“The meme was created purely as satire, it was not meant to be a call to violence against CNN or any other news affiliation,” he wrote. “I had no idea anyone would take it and put sound to it and then have it put up on the President’s Twitter feed. It was a prank, nothing more. What the President’s feed showed was not the original post that was posted here, but loaded up somewhere else and sound added to it then sent out on Twitter. I thought it was the original post that was made and that is why I took credit for it. I have the highest respect for the journalist community and they put their lives on the line every day with the jobs that they do in reporting the news.”

The apology has since been taken down by the moderators of /The_Donald subreddit.

After posting his apology, “HanA**holeSolo” called CNN’s KFile and confirmed his identity. In the interview, “HanA**holeSolo” sounded nervous about his identity being revealed and asked to not be named out of fear for his personal safety and for the public embarrassment it would bring to him and his family.

CNN is not publishing “HanA**holeSolo’s” name because he is a private citizen who has issued an extensive statement of apology, showed his remorse by saying he has taken down all his offending posts, and because he said he is not going to repeat this ugly behavior on social media again. In addition, he said his statement could serve as an example to others not to do the same.

CNN reserves the right to publish his identity should any of that change.

CNN reserves the right to publish his identity should any of that change.  So they doxxed someone and are threatening to expose him if he doesn’t behave the way they want.  And they did this on the 4th of July.

Oddly enough this hasn’t gone over so well with the rest of the internet.

Julian Assange says they’ve actually broken the law by doing so.

/pol/ has declared war.

Weaponized autists protect their own.  CNN has no idea what kind of ants’ nest they just kicked.

Bring the meme war.

What would we do without government investigators or the media to uncover and report on the truth?

Answer: We’ll just do it ourselves.

The internet, even with all its downsides, has certainly done some interesting things for the way “normal” folks can do awesome things.  Are the authorities not doing their duty in investigating a (potential) murder case?  Covering things up are they?  Media not doing their jobs to honestly report facts and relevant current events?  No worries.  The centipedes and /pol/ are on top of things.

Just a couple examples from today.

On the Donald this morning, they were talking about Wikileaks’ twitter announcement: BREAKING: Sweden has dropped its case against Julian Assange and will revoke its arrest warrant

So now does Mr. Assange just need a pardon from Trump and he’ll actually get to leave the Embassy?  Some pedes seem to think leaving may be too dangerous for Assange even if that were possible, and that maybe it’s just a trap.  I almost wouldn’t put it past the pedes and/or /pol/ to somehow break Assange out of the Embassy and have him whisked away to some safe and undisclosed location.

Google, of course, failed me for any further information.  If you want truly breaking news, skip the news outlets, just go to the citizen investigators of the internet.

In other news, the centipedes and /pol/ are busy working to collect, archive and sift through every trace of Seth Rich on the internet (just one of many threads with them hard at work).  They’re analyzing his entire life and personality and picking out anything that would lead to confirmation that he was the source of the DNC leaks and was murdered for it.  As the circumstantial evidence amasses, it becomes increasingly easy to believe this “internet conspiracy theory.”

If it’s the so-called “unbiased media” and government officials — who we should supposedly be trusting over “weirdos” on the internet — who keep dishing out falsehoods and fake news, what are we supposed to think when the so-called “internet conspiracy theories” keep turning out to be true these days.  I’m not sure there is anything too weird and convoluted to believe, especially when it comes to politics.

It’s the /pol/ice!

What a world we live in when Weaponized Autists on the internet are doing a better job than law enforcement.  Of course since this is Berkeley and the victim was a Trump supporter this isn’t actually a very high bar to pass. Still the current environment of anarcho-tyranny where the law is selectively enforced is going to push more people towards taking the law into their own hands.  The less the police do their job the more internet vigilantes will.

Divided and Alone with the Internet

What’s that?  You said he’d be in Finland next?  Well, whatya know…

Shia LaBeouf spending a month living alone in Finland cabin

Shia LaBeouf’s latest stunt is to spend a month isolated in a cabin in Finland’s remote Lapland region with his only communication with the outside world coming via text message to visitors to a Helsinki museum.

The project is called #ALONETOGETHER and involves the other two members of the actor’s art collective, Nastja Ronkko and Luke Turner. Ronkko and Turner are also spending time isolated in separate cabins in Lapland beginning Wednesday.

Visitors to the Kiasama museum in Helsinki can visit a cabin and send a text to LaBeouf, Ronkko and Turner, who can respond to visitors but can’t talk to one another.

A vacation would do him good too if only he could keep away from those monsters on the internet and regain a piece of his sanity. It’s not like /pol/ would look at all 3000 rental cabins in… oh.

Meanwhile, back at the museum, people are wearing MAGA hats and flashing Pepes.

As fun as all this is, we should take a step back and consider that Shia really is probably about to have a psychotic break.  He’s been teetering on the edge of one for quite a while.  Now he’s seeing racists everywhere. (Language warning)

Is it just me or is he screaming racist at a counter that’s full of black people?  Just get the man a straight jacket already.

HWNDU Season 5?

HWNDU Season 5 Poster

Bwahahahaha!  Yeah, that’s probably the sound you’ll be able to hear ringing through the depths of the internet — 4chan etc. — as they prepare for Season 5.

Shia, apparently bent on his own mental destruction, is playing a game he cannot win. Sad for him maybe.  But entertaining for the rest of us.  The rumor is that Helsinki is the next location for He Will Not Divide Us.  If it is, they can expect the trolls to be lying in wait before the even finish setting up.

Shia Labeouf, Luke Turner and Nastja Rönkko’s ‘He Will Not Divide Us’ livestream has recently become less anti-Trump protest art and more an international game of capture the flag, waged between artists and the combined efforts of 4chan and 8chan…

So where will the stream go next? Members of 8chan’s HWNDU board are speculating the new location will be in Helsinki, Finland. 

It sounds random, but it’s actually quite logical. The stream started in America, Labeouf’s home country, then moved to England, the home country of Luke Turner. Nastja Rönkko is a native of Helsinki, so it seems only fair the group will give her home country the next shot.

Labeouf, Turner and Rönkko will be participating in the ARS17 exhibition for contemporary art at the Kiasma Modern Arts Museum in Helsinki. The exhibition starts this Friday, but it is unclear when the group will arrive at the museum…

Helsinki would appear to be a good place that is out of the reach of pro-Trump trolls, but appearances can be deceiving. The HWNDU board is already preparing a heist on the Kiasma Museum if the stream is placed there. Multiple members of the board claim to live in or around Helsinki and are standing by to troll the stream.

The Fins also have a message board called Ylilauta, which functions much like 4chan and 8chan, and many of its users have already volunteered for the trolling operation.

No word yet from the artists where the next location (Season 5) will be, but they can certainly expect a warm welcome for them in Finland. The stream probably would not last more than a day.

Also amusing: The Washington Post featured an article about the whole thing – HWNDU and all the ensuing trolling!  Even though they negatively characterized 4chan as the source of “the misogyny of Gamergate” among other evils, some of what they included was surprising (including a tweet by WaPo is Fake News — did they just miss that?).  If you’re already in the know about the HWNDU game, this article isn’t informative, but it’s interesting that they are reporting on it in such detail and that they used the terminology of Shia’s opposition (“Season 1”, etc.) to talk about its chronology.

The world is not safe enough for Shia LaBeouf

After a disastrous defeat in a game of capture the flag, Shia LaBeouf decided to put an ocean in between him and /pol/ not realizing that /pol/ is everywhere.

Following that incident, LaBeouf announced this week that he would move the anti-Trump art project to the UK.

“Events have shown that America is simply not safe enough for this artwork to exist,” LaBeouf, Ronkko and Turner wrote in a statement on the FACT website. “We are proud to be continuing the project at FACT, an arts centre at the heart of the community.”

The flag moved to the top of the Foundation for Art and Creative Technology in Liverpool.  It was put up yesterday.

Today:

Shia LaBeouf Anti-Trump Art Project Shut Down for Fourth Time After Move to UK

In a statement on its Twitter page, FACT said it had removed the installation — which consisted of a flag with the phrase “He Will Not Divide Us” printed on it — from its rooftop due to “dangerous, illegal trespassing.”

/pol/ has saved the British taxpayers money.

But you know what?  Shia really has proved something.  He won’t divide us.  He can’t even divide us with an ocean.  You are forever united to the rest of humanity, Shia, especially the parts you’re trying to get away from.  This is what you asked for.  You can’t be divided.
