#QElon is Rebuilding 8chan Because He Wants a New Alt-Right
Unless this is stopped, it will ignite mass violence. It has nowhere else to go.
8chan is the website created by Fredrick Brennan to accommodate the misogynistic cult GamerGate after 4chan kicked it off for being too dangerous. Until that point in 2014, the 4chan board was uniformly considered the worst website in the world. 8chan immediately overtook that role.
Brennan wanted to ensure that there would be no moderation, so he allowed anyone to create their own 4chan about anything they wanted and either moderate it or not. This includes CSAM, neo-Nazi indoctrination, misogynistic trolling, and every form of bigotry and hate imaginable.
Brennan is also one of the founders of the “incel” movement in which men express frustration about their inadequacies with women through hate, trolling and sometimes physical violence.
So in order to make his misogynistic cult even more dangerous to women, Brennan wrote an article for the Nazi website Daily Stormer praising eugenics and inviting the Nazis to 8chan.
But the real goal of the platform was to push radicalization as far as possible in order to escape the boundaries of the internet to cause real world harm. When women were swatted, or otherwise physically hurt during GamerGate, this was celebrated as a special victory by the “anons” who reveled in the targets’ pain.
GamerGate and Brennan soon got the attention of neo-Nazi chaos agent Milo and his boss Steve Bannon at Breitbart, who promoted it and ultimately transformed it into both the alt-right and a mirror version on the left most commonly seen as “Bernie Bros.“
Four years later, when white nationalists started using 8chan to broadcast mass murder, and included references back to 8chan in their manifestos, the final level of 8chan had finally been reached. It was breeding suicide bombers, except the bomb was always an AR15.
That’s why Mike Flynn chose 8chan as the final destination of “Q” in 2017. No moderation means maximum radicalization.
Radicalization = Undue influence = Power
I’ve written a lot about Elon Musk, for many reasons, and none of them are good, but he’s gone to a different level now. He is openly recreating 8chan, with a number of “improvements.” And he’s doing with 1000x more people. Instead of hundreds of thousands of people on 8chan, he has a captive audience of hundreds of millions.
We know where this goes. This will cause mass violence unless it’s shut down.
Let’s review some of the similarities between 8chan and QElon Qwitter.
First of all, many of the people who were involved in the creation and weaponization of GamerGate itself are being allowed back on the platform — although others, like Fred Brennan and his lawyer Mike Cernovich, never left.
For example, QElon allowed literal Nazi Andrew Anglin, the editor of the Daily Stormer — which helped Fred Brennan radicalize his platform — back on Twitter last week.
Just today he allowed neo-Nazi Kremlin asset Baked Alaska back on — who was deeply involved in GamerGate, the alt-right, and MAGA3X. He’s also a convicted felon for his participation in the insurrection.
Just like 8chan, the target can be almost anyone, but QElon is learning from what’s worked in the past — misogyny, racism, anti-LGBTQ+ hate and especially antisemitism.
Obviously, he learned how to weaponize misogyny. In fact, for months he ran a major psyop on Twitter against his ex-girlfriend Amber Heard — who was testifying in a defamation lawsuit by Musk’s friend Johnny Depp.
He recently let misogynistic hate grifter Andrew Tate back on.
He’s weaponizes anti-LGBTQ hate constantly by validating and promoting propagandists like “Libs of TikTok” and by targeting people directly.
Of course antisemitism is always a powerful weapon and QElon specializes in promoting it — including allowing Kanye West on Twitter after he tweeted “death con 3 to all Jews” and then embracing West again after West praised Hitler over and over.
QElon has been incredibly blatant in his signaling to Nazis. He uses “88” for “Heil Hitler,” Wojak memes, Pepe the Frog and any other alt-right neo-Nazi symbology he can get his hands on. All of this is commonplace on 8chan and Telegram. [Edits in yellow]
He is also using “child trafficking” propaganda straight out of Pizzagate and QAnon. Here he promotes Erik Prince QAnon propagandist Lara Logan’s “child trafficking” LARP.
He’s even doing Kremlin #FweeAssange propaganda.
Not to mention his constant simping for Putin.
Not only has QElon learned from the experts about what to radicalize people with, he has learned their tactics and is currently fusing them together into the core dynamics of Twitter.
His “Twitter Files” propaganda is a combination of Wikileaks and Q drops. In fact, on this “official” Twitter Space for “Twitter Files 3” — as Kremlin propagandist Matt Taibbi wrote tweets in a thread — propagandist Ian Miles-Cheong and an array of anti-democratic operatives like CNP Executive Director Tom Fitton, called the tweets “drops” and read them like prophecies.
Obviously, QElon has replaced “Q.”
But the worst tactic of all that QElon has adopted is GamerGate aka suicide trolling. He has 120.8 million followers that represent a massive threat to anyone he targets.
Today he chose a target to launch his army against who happens to be the same person who banned me from Twitter and knowingly allowed coordinated harassment against me for a year and a half, Yoel Roth — former Head of Twitter “Safety.”
Regardless of my problems with Roth, there is absolutely no excuse for this behavior. It is intentionally endangering, smearing and traumatizing someone based on queerphobia and Pizzagate-style propaganda.
The result of QElon’s efforts are not only visible on Twitter:
On cult indoctrination hub Telegram, he’s providing a major boost of oxygen to the radicalization pipeline. Goal One is to make himself a cult leader, which as you can see here is working incredibly well. This is a Telegram search for “Elon.”
Goal Two is to incite hate, radicalization and violence against targets, for example against his former employee Yoel Roth. This is a Telegram search for “Roth.”
Musk is intentionally trying to get people killed
There is no other conclusion from the behavior being exhibited by QElon other than he is intentionally trying to create the conditions for “dismantling the administrative state” or civil war or the End Times or whatever flavor of apocalyptic violence you choose to think it is. Creating an 8chan a thousand times larger with a captive audience of innocent people to psyop is, without exaggeration, a crime against humanity.
At the core of all of this its a actual conspiracy of psychopaths, fascists, theocrats and dictators who believe the world needs to be remade. And to remake it, they need to destroy it first. They do not care if people die. They want it. A lot of it.
QElon is now the dictator and prophet for a transnational cult hell-bent on ending civilization. And now he has hundreds of millions of more people to indoctrinate into his war machine. We need to fight back — fast. He needs to be stopped, somehow, or we’re done here. Fuck all of this. 🏴☠️🇺🇸
