In Defense of Shatner: William Shatner under attack from misleading Salon and Gizmodo stories

William Shatner has come under attack by Salon and Gizmodo claiming he’s “alt-right.” These baseless claims reference some of his Twitter activity where for months he’s been embroiled in harassment, intimidation, and threats from an overly frenzied fanbase of Outlander viewers who think Caitrionia Balfe and Sam Heughen’s on-screen romance should extend to the real world. Months of attacks and a recent run in with SJWs while trying to support Autism charities could be a large part of the ire behind some of the recent “choice language” Shatner has used. Words as foul and unforgivable as “snowflake” and “misandry” for instance.

This is a read through of a draft I’ll be posting soon at the Inquisitr in support of our brave Captain.

 

 

 

Chaotic good: Pranksters at /pol/ Play Heroes for a Day

It seems the trolls at 4chan’s /pol/ have done their good deed for the week. The internet sleuths at the much-maligned message board managed to track down an animal abuser with help from a video uploaded of the incident. What started as an incident of road rage became a vicious animal killing. A fight in the street ended after one punch when Marc Dionne realized he was in over his head, he is seen in the video to run towards the window of the car.

CNN doxing sparks Meme War II

In the past week alone, CNN has moved from simply reporting the headlines to becoming headlines themselves. There was the Russia story gone bad that led to three journalists’ termination, Acosta accosting the president for a “fake news conference” in Poland, some very well or very ill-timed exposé videos from Project Veritas, to the doxxing incident of a Reddit user who provided the gif that gave CNN a “get out of news free card” for nearly 72 full hours. Some argue that the doxxing was possibly coercion on the part of the news network which would be a civil case, others have pointed to a law in 18 USC regarding hindering a person’s first amendment right to free speech and expression through threats. Regardless of the legal ramifications, #CNNBLACKMAIL eventually made it to the second trending tag on Twitter. Slate questioned the wisdom and ethics behind the move to keep him anonymous. Other sources also noted the questionable behavior and the backlash that it spawned. The Redditor, who allegedly made a racist post while “trolling” the forum, had apologized and promised not to repeat the behavior and deleted his previous posts before the CNN story ran. The initial report by Andrew Kaczynski ends with a caveat that “CNN reserves the right to publish his identity should any of that change.”

Stray from the Path advocates Antifa violence in ‘Good night, Alt-Right’ music video

When the hubbub about the staged stage rushing of Shakespeare in the park broke, I just scoffed. Julius Caesar is a play in which assassination of the head of state led to the fall of the Roman Republic, so the idea that the play was inciting violence against the president was fairly laughable. The equally ridiculous idea that a humorous gif repurposed from an old WWE clip was a sign that President Trump was inciting violence against reporters evoked chuckles. However, when Long Island nu-metal group Stray from the Path released the music video for “Good night alt-right,” there was only one way to construe the message being proffered.
