    Vice.

    That's all anyone needs to know. Anyone who wasn't aware that 4chan aka /b/ and /pol/ are shitholes hasn't been paying attention. I find it telling that they neglect to give actual numbers, instead publishing percentages that are meaningless without context.

    But what if the faggots' userbase are also braindead fags?
    Vice is a infinite loop of retardation, there's no way to kill it.

    MSM constantly forget that 4chan is more collectively a more chaotic force than anything. Even /pol/'s more successful campaigns just turned into jokes to piss people off as they went on

    I was more of thinking the "Okay to be white" stuff where the entire prank depended on the media doing exactly what the media did.

    regardless of what you're thinking of, their objectives are always fishing for reactions and enraging people, like any other standard group of trolls. Their larp games are only made moderately interesting by how an anonymous board bands together to pull these things off

    That's largely my point though, the MSM seems completely unable to catch on to that fact for some reason

    They exaggerate what 4chan does to make them seem like a threat to society's wellbeing. They also don't even know what 4chan is in the first place so you can't expect any accuracy

    Keep in mind, these are the same blue check mark journos who think 4chan is a mysterious hacker with OVER 9,000 accounts to troll Captain Marvel on IMDB.

    they caught onto it.

    The problem was there was no snappy way to explain why "It's OK to be white" was actually an "extreme right wing troll job" designed to make the media look bad. It would just sound convoluted

    Huh? I express racism in most conversations.

    Just because you would be scared of that doesn't mean I am. Most of my conversations with antifa end with them saying "I don't talk to racists" and walking away.

    How often do you bump into antifascists? Or are you talking about internet conversations when nobody is afraid to express racism.

    It still entertains me to no end to see how wrong a lot of these "high prestige" news organizations are about 4chan.

    Among other things, Anons do what they do to show how easily the media can be manipulated to make them report on anything they want them to. That's why they turned a cartoon frog, the OK emoji and milk into symbols of "hate", even though it's the most obvious non-hateful concepts ever.

    For what purpose? Simple: if a bunch of incels on a Bulgarian basket weaving forum can manipulate the media for fun and for free, imagine what someone with some manner of financial, political, personal, etc, gain could to do that same media? And how does anyone know for sure that isn't happening?

    The "increase" in "hate speech" on 4chan is only because that's what attracts attention. The media won't report that "discussions about waifus has increased by 350% in the last two years" or "there is a wider variety of dank memes being shared on 4chan than ever before"... but they can be manipulated into reporting about stuff that concerns "normal people", like "hate speech".

    4chan Anons are pretending to be stupid to show that the media is legitimately stupid. The difference is that 4chan Anons acknowledge that they're idiots, but the media never will.

    E: The one drawback is when Anons attract legitimate idiots thinking they're in good company. But I guess part of the fun is fucking with them too, making THEM think that racial superiority can be achieved with a cartoon frog. Shadilay.

    I find it most damning considering that back in the day, young liberal Millennials would constantly troll gullible conservative Boomers: now times have changed, and it's the 25-40 year old leftist Millennials who are now the current outraged and gullible "soccer mom" types who swallow up anything the media tells them. 4chan could literally start a rumor that Pepsi is the new drink of the alt-right, since the name "Pepsi" sounds like "Pepe." Within minutes, Twitter would light up with delusional blue check marks starting a hashtag campaign to boycott Pepsi, BuzzFeed and HuffPo would run articles warning about the danger of Pepsi, and Reddit would ban anyone who jokes about drinking Pepsi. All in all, some 14-year old edgelords on 4chan are laughing their asses off.

    I think what it is is those young Liberal Millennials are now adult Liberal Millennials, but they got bored and stopped trolling. But the ones who didn't troll remained, and how make up a majority.

    Due to popular request, here is a graphic showing what has happened:

    trolls-left.

    As you can see, initially the Millennial Trolls (in blue) outnumbered the non-trolls (in red). But as most of them had their fun and gave up, they ended up creating a majority of non-trolls who don't understand that they're being trolled but now represent the same group of "Liberal Millennials" because the original trolls left.

    It's simple math

    I wonder how much it pays. I should consider a career in reading shitposts on the internets instead of doing whatever it is I do for a living.
