Breaking Exclusive Newsflash! #TwitterGulag Is Still a Paranoid Persecution Fantasy
We’re going into the second straight month of the bizarre wingnut paranoid conspiracy theory they’ve dubbed #TwitterGulag, and the raving right wingers show no signs of re-entering the atmosphere yet.
They’re utterly convinced that I am the ringleader of this non-existent plot; if you follow the link above, you’ll see dozens and dozens of tweets ranting about my evil schemes, many with totally innocuous screenshots that are supposed to PROVE my evil liberal guilt.
I’m starting to think that if they’re going to blame me anyway, maybe I should hatch a diabolical high-tech plot to send them all to a commie forced labor camp. (Insert mad scientist laughter…)
And today, they’re also spreading more false claims about me: that Norwegian mass murderer Anders Breivik was a “regular visitor” to LGF, and that he was “inspired” by LGF. Both of these claims are completely false; I don’t know if Breivik ever visited LGF (anyone can look at a web page, of course), but he certainly never had an account here, and never posted comments.
As for the smear that Breivik was “inspired” by LGF, all you need to do is read his ugly manifesto to discover that he considered me a traitor to his twisted ideology; he included several articles full of vicious attacks against me by the leading lights of the “counter-jihad” blogosphere. Breivik himself never wrote a single word about me — all the mentions of LGF in his manifesto are in the articles by “Fjordman” that he republished.
Of course, we’re very familiar with this tactic from the right — they accuse their enemies of exactly what they themselves are doing. The fact is that the people circulating these smears about me are themselves the true inspirations for Breivik, and they remain bigoted anti-Muslim fanatics to this day.
