. . . because they may have weapons more powerful than you think.
Antifa has disrupted political and cultural activities across the USA for months now. Here's a brief overview.
Now it's apparently decided to take on a major Internet opponent. According to a post on Gab yesterday, Antifa has decided to try to disrupt 4chan's activities. This infographic was provided to explain their plan of attack. (Click the image for a larger view.)
No sooner had they released this, than 4chan struck back through another 'friendly' message board, 8chan, commonly known as the GamerGate board. It's reported:
From the organizers of BAMN to the organizers of Refuse Fascism, to just your typical Antifa member has allegedly been doxxed. 8chan has released the first and last names of all of them and promises to be releasing the personal info of all of them.
We checked out some of these and a lot of the ones we can confirm actually check out to be true. We couldn’t go through them all of course because there are thousands and thousands of names. Here is the 8chan link with the names.
Just in case for some reason this link gets taken down, we have had the pleasure of saving all of these for re-release if such a thing happens. The OP of the post also promises to post additional personal info of the members. And if you're an Antifa member checking out this site, maybe see if your name is there. They are all in alphabetical order by last name.
Some of them who attended Charlottesville and committed violence have also been doxxed with pictures and personal info including Facebook page, home address as well as some other information.
There's more at the link.
It's going to be a bit difficult to be a strong, motivated 'warrior' against the right wing, when your name, address and other identifying information are known beforehand to every law enforcement organization involved (not to mention those on the other side). Methinks Antifa has just done more damage to itself than it knows how to handle.
It couldn't happen to nicer people, of course.
