I can’t stand this sort of dishonesty. Fake quotes and fake social media accounts are a truly vile smear tactic, and one used by people who can’t win arguments with their actual opponents, so they build up strawmen instead. It’s good that this is being exposed, though the events in Baltimore really should be called “protests” when mostly peaceful or “riots” for those cases where looting occurred. ‘Uprising’ doesn’t fit. But that’s my opinion, and its a minor problem. This piece does more good than harm, by a long margin.

Interesting fact about the 8chan site - it was created directly in response to moderators on 4chan’s boards (most notably /v/ (video games) and /pol/ “politically incorrect”) actively banning users spamming Gamergate threads, images from the “fappening” phone-hacked celebrities, and major recruiting and “mantra” thread flooding from white nationalist groups like The Daily Stormer and (n-word)mania.

The individuals are again almost as active as before the crackdown, with the added twist that they are now recruiting for the new imageboard as well.

Not even remotely close to true. 8chan was created in October 2013, GamerGate started in August 2014.
