“Where’s Nancy?”: Attempted Murderer’s Internet History is a Microcosm
“How did I get into all this. Gamer gate it was gamer gate“
The guy who tried to murder Nancy Pelosi this morning and beat her husband with a hammer in front of police has an internet history that shows in horrifying detail how psyops warp minds into violence.
David DePape lived in Berkeley and had a decade before been a nudist and a “hemp jewelry maker.” But like a lot of people who started on the far left, he was pulled into the darkest regions of the internet and came out as one of the most hateful people you can possibly imagine.
According to himself, David DePape got started with hate and conspiracies through GamerGate, the misogynistic cult created and run by Fredrick Brennan on his website 8chan. David DePape was part of the “alt-left.”
At some point, Fredrick Brennan and the people who platform him need to take responsibility for their actions.
CW: Bigotry of ALL kinds, graphic imagery
David DePape listened to far-left pro-Putin podcasts like Jimmy Dore. And he was a rabid anti-vaxxer.
He was a huge fan of misogynistic, racist Incel Whisperer Jordan Peterson and was obvious a major consumer of 4chan/8chan.
Big fan of Tulsi Gabbard. And a vicious Holocaust-denying neo-Nazi.
His antisemitism is off the charts.
And a racist.
Hates Hillary and “Russiagate.”
He was openly fascist and theocratic.
“SJW” is a GamerGate term. 8 years later he’s still using it. He was also a Christian extremist very concerned with Satan.
His blog goes on and on like this. He has similar footprints on Telegram and Facebook.
I can think of no better example of EVERYTHING my friends and I have been warning about for more than two years. This is what propaganda and psychological operations do to people.
A hemp jewelry maker from Berkeley was turned into a neo-Nazi murderer ready to assassinate the elderly Speaker of the House with a hammer…
I am so fucking angry.
