Charles Johnson and MSM Get Chumped by Anonymous Moby Attack On Officer Darren Wilson Fundraiser SitePosted: August 23, 2014
Charles The Unbiased promoted Lawhawk’s intrepid research on the GoFundMe account for Officer Darren Wilson. Too bad it contains blatant and easily disprovable lies.
The GoFundMe donation account was set up on 17 August, presumably to defray the cost of Officer Wilson’s legal defense against those who want him crucified for killing Michael Brown, a large man who, by all credible accounts, attacked the police officer.
The fund raised more than $234,000 in only five days. The owners of the account, realizing that donations were still coming in after they’d met their goal, decided to close the account and open a second donation fund, with monies directed to a non-profit charity for officers in need: Shield of Hope. Formerly known as the Fraternal Order Of Police Lodge 15 Charitable Foundation, it has connections to a Missouri police union. No surprise there.
But then Lawhawk attempts to paint the operators of (and donors to) the original GoFundMe page as racists, and by false association, smear not only Officer Wilson and the Ferguson P.D., but the F.O.P. and all police in the State of Missouri.
In the post at Little Green Footballs, the list is barely legible as it’s posted as a faint .jpg. Here it is in .png format, undoctored except to enhance contrast:
Wow. Those are some serious jawdroppers. The remainder of Lawhawk’s commentary is too inane to merit a response, so let’s examine his accusations of racism instead.
The GoFundMe donation page had been up for about a day before the mobys showed up, and the moderators decided to close comments and clean up the vitriol. They posted a couple of explanatory updates.
We have disabled comments on our page. Please understand we still appreciate all of the kind words but we are attempting to stop the negative comments. This is the best way to take care of the issue. Thank you again to our supporters!
We apologize for all negative comments that were not removed in a timely manner. With so much going on at this time we are trying to keep up as best we can. For all of the positive comments we want to sincerely thank you. It outweighs the negative tremendously. Thank you for reaching our second goal! We will be increasing the goal dramatically so everyone who wants to donate can. Again, words cannot express how truly thankful we are. God bless each and every one of you.
So they acknowledged the problem and fixed it, but where did that collection of “racist” comments come from? One source is left-wing Huffington Post with this headline:
Awful Racism Prompts Organizers To Shut Off Comments On Darren Wilson Fundraising Site
Buried in the HuffPo story is this:
Gawker reports that many of the inflammatory comments originated from noted troll-bait site 4chan.
So I went to far left-wing Gawker, and found this:
Pressure has been mounting on GoFundMe to address Wilson’s page, and the comments had clearly become a problem, partly because they were starting to be obviously trolled. The primary source of the trolling appears to be 4chan, whose users were leaving comments in the names of Twitter users speaking out against the page, as well as people like Hitler and Elliot Rodger. This massive and barely comprehensible collage of screenshots traces some of that trolling.
Here is the “massive and barely comprehensible collage of screenshots.”
Yeah, there’s some serious deranged ugly in there. Click on it and scroll around. What’s the next step? Don all protective gear available and take a dive into the Internet’s Biggest Cesspool – 4chan.
Rather than link, here’s what was on top of the archive, posted today:
Apparently this was a planned stealth campaign perpetrated by Anonymous, although I found no related #OP hashtag on Twitter. If you’re unconvinced that this was a planned attack, scrolling down a bit finds them bragging about all the “news” outlets that picked up the story:
This might be a funny prank were it not so inherently evil and intentionally dangerous.
Charles, so sorry you weren’t mentioned (like you were in Breivik’s Manifesto). I guess you don’t rank, but at least you can find solace in the fact that you helped spread a blatant lie that will result in the deaths of innocent people, including law enforcement.
Hope you’re proud of your reckless stupidity.
