Libs of TikTok Doxing Uncovers Secret Hacker-Government Mercenary Alliance Behind Regime’s War on MAGA Americans

American dissidents of all stripes are ablaze with anger after The Washington Post’s most repugnant reporter, Taylor Lorenz, published yet another piece trying to ruin someone more popular than her.

Taylor Lorenz, a Washington Post columnist, wrote a Tuesday article titled, “Meet the woman behind Libs of TikTok, secretly fueling the right’s outrage machine,” revealing the identity of the user who had intended to remain anonymous. The piece linked the user’s real estate page listing her full name and home address, which the outlet later removed.

The account, which nearly has 700,000 followers, posts TikTok videos of liberals in order to spark a reaction among conservative audiences.

Lorenz reportedly contacted Libs of TikTok early Tuesday telling the account they are “being implicated as a hate campaign against LGBTQ people,” the account said. [Daily Caller]

For those not paying attention, the blazing hot Libs of TikTok account simply finds TikTok videos wherein crazed liberals and LGBTQ-ers, many of them teachers of innocent children, unabashedly reveal their deviant grooming agenda for public consumption.

For instance:

Few people are more repugnant than Taylor Lorenz, who once falsely accused billionaire Marc Andreeson of using the “r-slur” in a Clubhouse room, and whose age is humorously difficult to pin down. Mere weeks ago, Lorenz had a meltdown over “online harassment” in an interview with MSNBC, then pressured the channel into deleting the interview.

Lorenz may be repulsive, to say the least. She certainly courted, assiduously, all the hatred coming her way. But there is a bigger story here. This incident is a case study in how the ruling regime uses cutout “NGOs” and “hackers” to target dissidents for annihilation. It wasn’t Taylor Lorenz who doxed Libs of TikTok. Lorenz is a used-up cocktail waitress for the regime. She’s far too talentless to achieve such a feat. Instead, it was a motley crew of regime actors.

The original doxer of the woman behind Libs of TikTok was an Antifa Twitter user named @karmaonesixone who gloated last weekend about using sleuth work to uncover the account’s original tweets and name.

Another Twitter user, Travis Brown, promoted and confirmed @karmaonesixone’s work, then went on to unearth and reveal even more information about the woman behind LibsofTikTok.

In the Washington Post, Taylor Lorenz herself credits Brown for confirming Libs Of TikTok’s identity.

On Saturday, software developer Travis Brown (who is working on a project with support from Prototype Fund, an organization that backs open-source projects) unearthed the account’s Twitter history and posted a thread detailing information about its profile changes.

Who is Travis Brown? In essence, a man paid by the German government to target, dox, and harass the international left’s ideological enemies.

Brown is the creator of the so-called “Hate Speech Tracker,” a program whose explicit purpose is to aid Antifa extremists in tracking and archiving statements by its enemies, and find “connections” between them to aid in doxxing.

From the horse’s mouth:

WHAT SOCIETAL CHALLENGE DOES YOUR PROTOTYPE ADDRESS?

Many right-wing extremist movements are currently developing on social media, e.g. B. GamerGate, conspiracy theory movements like QAnon and militant movements like the Proud Boys in the USA. Members of these movements often delete their content, change their username, and get banned (often temporarily) from social media platforms. This makes it harder to resist their actions. For example, prominent far-right accounts on Twitter and Facebook have developed a well-documented pattern of distributing controversial and extremist content to their followers and then deleting it before moderators have a chance to respond. This is how they radicalize their audience while minimizing the risk of their platforms losing funding or moderate supporters. Archiving is an important element in counteracting this behavior and in many cases has led to prominent victories against the extreme right.

The Hate Speech Tracker is a set of composable software tools that enable people affected by harassment and hate speech on social media to record and share information about their experiences. Blacklists for Twitter and other social media platforms can be commented on and shared privately, connections between extremist-run accounts can be identified and cases of hate speech can be archived.

WHO IS YOUR TOOL AIMED AT?

The early versions of this project were mainly used by anti-fascist researchers and organizations. Although these specialists represent the primary user group of the project, the tools should also be available to a broader, less specialized user base.

For those wondering, Brown’s work egregiously violates the terms of use of the sites that he tracks “hate” on. As Brown himself noted on his website, Twitter’s own privacy policy states:

“As such, we prohibit the use of Twitter data in any way that would be inconsistent with people’s reasonable expectations of privacy. By building on the Twitter API or accessing Twitter Content, you have a special role to play in safeguarding this commitment, most importantly by respecting people’s privacy and providing them with transparency and control over how their data is used.”

“We want people to feel comfortable to create a separate and, if they choose, pseudonymous identity on Twitter. If you intend to associate any information about a Twitter user with an off-Twitter identifier, we require that you get express, opt-in consent from the user before making the association.

For example, you could get this consent if the user shares their Twitter handle directly with you as part of a signup process for your service. In situations in which you do not have a user’s express, opt-in consent to link their Twitter identity to an off-Twitter identifier, we require that any connection you draw be based only on information that a user would reasonably expect to be used for that purpose. If a user would be surprised to learn that you are using information they provided to link their Twitter account to an identity off of Twitter, don’t do it.”

Brown also openly admits to using certain tactics on Twitter that “probably” violate the ToS.

This isn’t some one-off fluke. Much like Brandy Zadrozny, whom Revolver profiled in 2020, Travis Brown exists as a small part of a much larger ecosystem.

Brown’s doxxing operation isn’t an independent venture. He is backed by the Prototype Fund, a project of the Open Knowledge Foundation Germany, an “independent not-for-profit organization.” The notion that the foundation is “independent” is, of course, a lie. OKFG receives funding directly from the the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research.

In other words, the German government directly financed the doxing of Libs Of TikTok and Taylor Lorenz’s calculated attempt on behalf of the Washington Post to destroy her life.

Prototype, by the way, doesn’t just fund doxing operations. It funds the mass arrival of “asylum-seekers” into Europe.

It backs the perpetual post-2016 campaign against “fake news.”

Is there something about “trans voices”? You bet there’s something about trans voices!

The same organization that paid to dox Libs Of TikTok is also paying to teach male-to-female transgenders how not to sound like Barry White.

Prototype doesn’t limit itself to online flame wars. It also takes an interest in real wars, funding an archive to gather alleged eyewitness reports of atrocities in the Syrian Civil War.

“Syrian Archive” acts vague about what position it takes on the war, but its website leaves no room for doubt: This is an organization that exists to blame Bashar Assad, and by extension Russia, for chemical attacks (chemical attacks that in at least one case turned out to be a hoax). In fact, its anti-Russia orientation is so obvious that in the last few weeks it has pivoted to warning about imminent chemical attacks in Ukraine:

The same German government-backed organization that is targeting political dissidents in the West is also funding the transgender mania and the foreign policy priorities of the Western elite. In many ways, Prototype resembles Bellingcat—an “NGO” funded by the United Kingdom that played a key role in amplifying the Russia collusion narrative, targets “far-right” domestic dissidents, and promoted the Syria gas attack hoax. In 2021, The Grayzone revealed that Bellingcat took UK intelligence money to run overseas influence operations intended to “weaken Russia.”

America unsurprisingly loves this tactic as well. In February, the hacker collective Distributed Denial of Secrets (DDoS) leaked hacked materials from GiveSendGo that doxed donors to the Canadian trucker convoy. As we previously observed, DDoS is basically a de facto government operation:

In 2020, the Trump Department of Homeland Security claimed that DDoS is a “criminal hacker group.” Despite that, it enjoys IRS non-profit status. DDoS’s high-profile hacks have, almost without exception, targeted domestic dissidents against the regime, or its international enemies, rather than the regime itself. Besides doxing every GiveSendGo donor, DDoS’s other targets include Gab, Parler, local police departments, Russia, Myanmar, and right-wing chat groups online.

So much for speaking truth to power. By all accounts, DDoS speaks power to truth.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, DDoS’s leader is the “chronically ill” “they/she” transgender freak show Emma Best. DDoS almost certainly works hand in hand with serious criminals, if it is not an outright criminal organization itself. Yet nobody is shutting down financial support for DDoS or seizing its assets. While Julian Assange awaits trial and, in all likelihood, life in prison for embarrassing the security state and the Hillary Clinton campaign, “Emma” Best (they/she) faces no serious efforts to stop his activities whatsoever. And why would he? He is among the most heroic tranissaries rendering an invaluable service to the Globalist American Empire.

READ THE REST

The actual hacker who claims credit for hacking GiveSendGo is Aubrey Cottle, who is the co-founder of the old “Anonymous” hacking collective.

In late February, after Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, Hillary Clinton called for Anonymous and other hacker groups to launch more cyberattacks on Russia. Does anybody think for even a moment that the CIA and other agencies aren’t “encouraging” such behavior behind the scenes?

This isn’t a new idea. Back in 2013, Anonymous carried out operations against the Assad government in Syria.

So, what’s the takeaway from all this? When you see such “hacker groups” operate, they are not operating independently. They exist within an ecosystem where regime stakeholders can use cut-outs to do their dirty work. During the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, the merc–, ahem, private military contractor Blackwater served a similar function for combat zones: Flexibility and plausible deniability. Now, the same goes for civil society. Nominally, the U.S. Constitution and the constitutions of its allies protect freedom of speech, and the government explicitly doxing its own citizens for dissent is unlikely to be popular. Rather than have government employees directly target dissidents (which does happen on occasion), it is much easier to quietly enable cutout “civil society organizations,” NGOs, and more — all funded by government yet insulated from any kind of accountability — to do the dirty work.

The Lorenz dox job exposes how this ecology operates. This is not simply the story of a deranged attention whore who went too far. This is a story of how the new Stasi operates: Energy flows from governments, to non-profits, to hackers, and finally to aged out journalists publishing hit pieces on dissidents in Jeff Bezos’s paper of record.

By understanding this system, it becomes possible to stop it. The most obvious fix is the most blunt: Break off the billions in government funding that enable these shadow operations of left-wing radicalism. But that isn’t the only fix. Revolver will further explore this NGO ecosystem in the weeks and months to come. Stay tuned.

GROSS DOUBLE STANDARD: ANTIFA Pipebomber given 300k Bond Option While January 6th Onlookers Rot in DC Jail

Ryan DeLarme
January11th, 2022

A young Antifa member with a pipe bomb was arrested this past January 6th at a political rally down in Florida. The suspect, Garrett James Smith, was spotted running away before he was apprehended by police and caught with a backpack containing a pipe bomb, a gas mask, pepper spray, smoke rockets, and flammable rags.

He also carried a “Direct Action” Checklist (photos provided below).

Suspect caught with Pipe Bomb on January 6th, 2022.

Smith said he was there to counter-protest a rally organized by Trump Supporters outside of Pinellas County Jail to demand the release of Political Prisoner Jeremy Brown, who remains in jail with no bail in Florida. Brown is a decorated U.S. Army special forces soldier.

According to local Sheriff Bob Gualtieri, officers chased Smith — who “stuck out” dressed all in black, including a ski mask — when he suddenly sprinted away from the rally.

Antifa man Garrett Smith in all black and a ski mask at a rally. He was caught with a bomb, apprehended, and arrested. His bond is set at 300k.

According to Gualtieri, officers found a homemade pipe bomb in his backpack, which “had the potential to be very harmful,” the sheriff warned.

“It could have been very destructive, and he could have hurt a lot of people,” Gualtieri said, adding that he was certain Smith was “prepared” to set off the bomb before he was spooked and fled.

Explosives and bombs were found in the possession of Garrett Smith.

Authorities searched Smith’s home and found another pipe bomb, hand grenade-style explosives, nails, and duct tape. Smith also wore a helmet showcasing the “Iron Front” emblem (three red arrows in a circle). This logo is used by Antifa groups.

Additionally, the suspect had until several months ago been based in Portland, Oregon- a city that’s name has now become synonymous with violent riots and the left-wing militant group.

“Direct Action’ Checklist found in possession of Antifa man carrying Bomb at January 6th rally (page 1).

“Direct Action’ Checklist found in possession of Antifa man carrying Bomb at January 6th rally (page 2).

“Direct Action’ Checklist found in possession of Antifa man carrying Bomb at January 6th rally (page 3).

Smith is being held on a $300,250 bond. He was charged with three counts of possession or discharge of a destructive device and one count of loitering and prowling. Contrast this with the treatment of January 6th political prisoners, who continue to suffer in prison with no bail on 22 hour a day lockdown- many of the accused of non-violent crimes like loitering and disorderly conduct.

Two-Tiered Justice System?

“We’re fortunate in this situation that something caused Smith to flee before he ignited the explosive device and the deputies were able to apprehend him,” Gualtieri said.

*Sadly, there has as of yet been no coverage of this dangerous bomb scare by a left leaning media or centrist media organization. The New York Post and Fox News has reported it- but if you do a Google Search CNN, MSNBC and all the others have not reported on this at all. (Yet they couldn’t stop their incessant phony coverage on the January 6th anniversary of the “terrorist” Trump Supporters (not a single one accused of carrying a bomb or even a gun on January 6th).

No More “Equal Justice Under Law?”

“Equal Justice Under Law.”

These sacred words are inscribed on the front of the U.S. Supreme Court Building and taken directly from the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution- which states that no state shall “deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.”

So why does the United States government continue to politically persecute Trump Supporters who participated in January 6th and continue to let Antifa defendants back on the loose for more serious crimes?

The above case of Smith is just one example of the government and Justice Department treating Antifa more favorably while continuing to persecute Trump supporters from January 6th in ways that many have compared to treatment of political prisoners in Communist China or Russia.

Rumors About Antifa Setting Wildfires Are False: Law Enforcement

ZACHARY STIEBER 
September 11, 2020

Rumors that members of the far-left Antifa network are behind the spate of wildfires in Oregon are not substantiated, law enforcement officials warned this week.

While a number of people have been arrested for arson in recent days, none appear to have explicit ties to the network.

Douglas County Sheriff’s Office officials wrote on Facebook that 911 dispatchers were “being overrun with requests for information and inquiries on an UNTRUE rumor that 6 Antifa members have been arrested for setting fires” in the county.

The rumor isn’t true, officials said, urging people to stop spreading it.

The Molalla Police Department, while asking people to report any suspicious activity because of rumors about people looting while fires raged, later edited its post, telling people: “This is about possible looters, not antifa or setting of fires. There has been NO antifa in town.”

And the Medford Police Department posted a screenshot of a story that claimed police arrested a man for arson.

“This is a made up graphic and story. We did not arrest this person for arson, nor anyone affiliated with Antifa or ‘Proud Boys’ as we’ve heard throughout the day. Also, no confirmed gatherings of Antifa which has also been reported,” the department stated on social media.

Antifa members have repeatedly set fires in Portland this summer.

Some individuals have been arrested this month for arson or with incendiary devices in Oregon, California, Washington state.

Elias Newton Pendergrass, 44, was arrested last week for allegedly setting a fire that burned hundreds of acres near Eugene, Oregon, the Lane County Sheriff’s Office said.

Detectives took a 27-year-old man into custody in Madera County, California on Thursday because he possessed illegal firearms, drugs, and bomb-making materials.

Christine Comello, 36, was arrested in Spokane, Washington on Monday on suspicion of setting fires.

And two men were apprehended in Puyallup and Parkland, Washington trying to ignite flames, state troopers said. Jeffrey Acord, one of the men, said he called police after a fire started near him during a live stream on Facebook.

“I’m out here on 167 right now it looks like a fire literally just started,” Acord said in the video.

“Ultimately it was determined is that they had probable cause to believe that gentleman had started that fire,” Puyallup Police Capt. Jason Visnaw told King 5.

Acord was arrested during unrest in Ferguson, Missouri, in 2014 for possession of a concealed weapon and other charges. According to his Facebook page, he is a Black Lives Matter supporter.

Humans are believed to be behind several fires that burned through over 2,000 acres in Lincoln County as well as flames that destroyed some 600 houses in Almeda County.

“We have good reason to believe that there was a human element to it,” Ashland Police Chief Tighe O’Meara told Reuters. “We’re going to pursue it as a criminal investigation until we have reason to believe that it was otherwise.”

O’Meara told The Oregonian that rumors regarding Antifa were “100 percent false.”

“We have some leads, and none of it points in that direction,” he added.Follow Zachary on Twitter: @zackstieber

Portland Rioters Viciously Beat Man; Transported to Hospital With ‘Serious Injuries’

Ryan Saavedra,
August 17th, 2020

Violent rioters allegedly beat a man in Portland last night, kicking and punching him in the head, after he reportedly defended someone that had been attacked.

The man then appeared to attempt to flee the situation in his truck and later ended up crashing into a building, at which point he was violently attacked by what independent journalists have identified as Antifa and Black Lives Matter activists. During the attack he was kicked in the head from behind, which instantly knocked him out. Some of the witnesses attempted to move him.

WATCH (warning: extreme violence, language):

“A crowd is gathered around the unconscious victim’s body; some are pouring water on his head,” journalist Kalen D’Almeida tweeted. “Others can be heard arguing and establishing BLM responsibility for the attack.”

Journalist Drew Hernandez tweeted out videos from the incident that showed everything leading up the attack.

“Here is what took place before the man crashed his car into a tree here in Downtown Portland,” Hernandez tweeted. “BLM thugs began to harass and physically assault him and his female partner in the street for defending someone they robbed He then began to drive away to evade them.”

WATCH:

Hernandez also tweeted out a video of the truck crashing into a building, writing: “Here are the moments shortly after the man crashes due to BLM harassment and before they knock him out in Portland.”

“At 10:27p.m., Central Precinct officers responded to a report of an injury accident at Southwest Broadway and Southwest Taylor Street,” The Portland Police Department said in a statement. “The report said protesters were chasing the truck before it crashed, and they assaulted the driver after the crash.”

“Officers encounters a hostile crowd and a squad from the Rapid Response Team (RRT) responded to help secure the scene while the investigation was underway,” the statement added. “The driver was transported to the hospital by ambulance with serious injuries. The incident is under investigation and no arrests have been made.”

Last month, Democrat House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler claimed, without evidence, that the violence in Portland was “a myth.”

Hernandez later added a separate tweet, writing: “For the record, this was the extreme rhetoric that was being preached by BLM just hours before they began to take to the streets and violently harass, rob, physically assault people and nearly execute a man.”

“I will continue my mission by any means necessary,” the speaker says in the video. “I said I will continue my mission for justice by any means necessary.”

The speaker then got louder, saying, “I don’t think y’all hear me, I’m gonna say it one more time. I said that I will continue my mission for justice to hold police accountable for murders and murdering our people by any means necessary.”

“And I’m sure we all know what ‘any means necessary’ is and how it can go,” the speaker added.

WATCH (warning: explicit language):
