Internet Trolls Launch Campaign to Shut Down Progressive Spaces

It’s easy to stereotype Internet trolls as losers who spend all their spare time playing video games (when they’re not harassing people online, that is). There is some truth to this image, and that truth obscures a key point: Gamers have effectively spent their entire lives testing the boundaries of systems built by others, and figuring out how to exploit those boundaries to achieve their goals.

For some internet trolls, the current real-life goal is to harm progressives as much as possible—especially if doing so causes them distress in the process while exposing their apparent hypocrisy. Last Wednesday, an anonymous user on 4chan’s politically incorrect /pol/ board had an epiphany. Inspired by the Oakland tragedy, they posted the following:

“The Ghost Ship fire is proving to be a much bigger even than a simple fire. It’s being used as the justification for police and fire departments to shut down many similar spaces and venues across the country.

“These places are open hotbeds of liberal radicalism and degeneracy and now YOU can stop them by reporting all such places you may be or may become aware of to the authorities, specifically the local fire marshel [sic].

“Watch them and follow them to their hives. Infiltrate social circles, go to parties/events, record evidence, and report it. We’ve got them on the run but now we must crush their nests before they can regroup!

“MAGA my brothers and happy hunting!”

4chan/pol/ is trying to "destroy the Left"... by saving them from dying in fires? Who knew those 4chan guys were so sweet and kind-hearted? (´・ω・`)
