Steve Bannon Swatted 🤭
No one should ever have this happen to them. But if there’s one person…
Neo-nazi Russian propagandist Jack Posobiec is screeching because human tobacco stain Steve Bannon had his place raided when someone falsely called the cops saying they had a rifle at Bannon’s house. This is known as “swatting.”
Normally, this would just be an awful thing to happen to someone, even a dangerous propagandist like Steve Bannon. But Bannon personally oversaw the popularization of Fredrick Brennan’s misogynistic cult GamerGate which Brennan was running out of his website 8chan.
Brennan created 8chan because 4chan wouldn’t allow physical threats or child pornography, so he took a copy of 4chan and removed all the moderation from it and relaunched as 8chan so women could be freely tormented and traumatized without interference.
Bannon had his “technology editor” at Breitbart — despicable troll and traumatic propagandist Milo Yiannopolous — amplify GamerGate, which allowed it to metastasize into the alt-right.
Of course, one of the things 8chan and GamerGate are infamous for is swatting people. It happened numerous times to targeted women and others during GamerGate, especially on the /baphomet board.
Anyway, couldn’t have happened to a shittier guy. Next time the cops should just save time and take him with them. 😂
