There’s nothing like constant reminders of how Nazis all over the world are out to get you to fill one’s heart with joy and fancy-free, especially when such hatred is your reward for writing for free for a third of every day.
Today, people from as diverse a location as Brussels, Wales, Provo, Utah, and “General Location, Russia” tried to hack the site; I get emails on them from all over the world. This is nothing new, it’s an everyday event. My Sucuri plugin lets me know their IP addresses. It looks just like this:
Then, we go to a place called WhatismyIPaddress.com, and take a look at where they’re from. It looks a lot like this:
And so it goes. Every day. The threats just keep rolling in. “If you back off, then nothing will happen”, one guy wrote to us. How creepy.
On the subject of cyber-woes, let’s not forget Facebook. More than 120 million Americans were reached by Russian ads through their platform in 2016.
Regarding Facebook’s treatment of Democratic activists, there are exactly two possibilities. Either they are unfair, unethical, and unfit, or they are absolutely incompetent.
Either way, hundreds of loyal and hardworking Democratic activists are in what we refer to as Facebook Jail, as these words are being written. This has been the case for at least six months; there’s countless documentation. Nobody listens.
One young lady who always goes out of her way to spread our articles around on Facebook has been mass-reported and algorithmically defiled to the point where a single post is now enough to have her sent back to jail.
That’s exactly what happened yesterday. One week’s worth of restriction, for sharing our post on the fake left and the so-called Justice Democrats. She’d just had her last restriction lifted, two hours prior. As soon as she hit the Share button, she was given another week’s restriction.
It just plain sucks, when you’re stopped for months at a time from even commenting in Facebook groups that you created, because of Russian agitators gaming their stupid robots. The data just keeps rolling in, as to how good they’ve gotten at doing it, and how Facebook just keeps letting them.
Facebook must be reformed. It must stand up, show some transparency, and hold itself accountable.
That’s exactly what it hasn’t done.
It makes you wonder if someone hasn’t managed to shake up Zuckerberg.
I haven’t even tried to organize this article. It’s just raw today.
Julian Assange, that scruffy little rat, has been rewarded for his treason to the species with a citizenship in Ecuador. He’ll be out partying tonight, thanks to his buddy Vladimir coming through for him.
Earlier today, the president labelled Dianne Feinstein “Sneaky” and a criminal, for doing her job well, showing the world how the Republicans have been covering up for Trump as he covers up for Putin by revealing the Fusion GPS testimony.
Where has justice gone?
What has happened in this country, when following the precise dictates of the law has become something only outlaws do? When did patriotism become uncool? What has happened to the Republicans? Exactly when did the party of Ronald Reagan start letting the Russians waltz all over us?
Trump threatened Feinstein in the same bullying, childish tone about the “Tough Primary Challenge” she’ll be facing. It’s as if he’s saying, “Oh yeah, lady. That “Justice Democrat” (how much more do we need that these people are not on the level?)coming after you this year? It’s me you’re really up against.”
“If you back off, nothing will happen…”
That piece of trash didn’t know how right he was. If you back off, if you back down, if you go back to sleep and be silent, then nothing will happen. Nothing will EVER happen. So that is the absolute last thing that we will ever do!
Millennial Democrats will not be intimidated, and we will not be pushed around. Petty attempts to harass or frighten us will do nothing but strengthen our resolve. With every challenge they force us to find our way around, we expand our capabilities further.
Our message to the bullying little nobodies who’ve been putting all this effort into silencing us is merely this: We will bear witness anyway. Actually, we appreciate your help. All of your harassment is a sign of our success.
While you’ve been so desperately trying to destroy us, we’ve had readers in nearly every country in the world, in less than six months.
So hack away, you bunch of whackers. Once you finish failing, the only thing you’re good at, hit a treadmill and get some girlfriends. Thanks for the digital lessons, too. We’ll be sure to come and show you what we’ve done with them, some sunny day.
The worst thing is that we cannot count on our president to protect us from these foreign assailants. That is indeed a terrible feeling. But it won’t always be this way. We won’t always be on the receiving end.
This whole Trump thing, all the alt-right nonsense, the Richard Spencers and all the rest of it, amounts to nothing more than the final death-throes of reactionary fascism. It’s a fish in a dried-up pond. Casting one’s lot with that pack of nincompoops is the worst imaginable wager.
When the end comes for Donald Trump and his whole rotten way of life, there’s going to be a lot of people out there who’ve been wearing those stupid red hats of his who are not going to be forgiven.
They’ll be like Sudeten Germans in 1945. Outcast from society forever. No matter what you do, no matter what you say, you will never be trusted again. And you will never be welcome again. Our message to Trump supporters is simply this: TURN BACK NOW. Before it is forever too late.
