  • 11/02/17--05:09: Australia is not real
  • About

    Australia is not real. It’s a hoax, made for us to believe that Britain moved over their criminals to someplace is a copypasta which says Australia is not a real place and it does not exist, the copypasta, which is usually used as a way to shitpost on Reddit or 4chan sometimes when Australia is somehow mentioned or involved in something.

    Origin

    It appears that this copypasta has its origin from Facebook by, Shelley Floryd, but after some media attention and the heat she got out of it, she decided to remove the post and hasn’t been heard of since. It again resurfaced and received some minor attention after being posted on Reddit an 4chan a couple of times.

    Australia is not real. It’s a hoax, made for us to believe that Britain moved over their criminals to someplace. In reality, all these criminals were loaded off the ships into the waters, drowning before they could see land ever again. It’s a coverup for one of the greatest mass murders in history, made by one of the most prominent empires.Australia does not exist. All things you call “proof” are actually well-fabricated lies and documents made by the leading governments of the world. Your Australian friends? They’re all actors and computer-generated personas, part of the plot to trick the world.If you think you’ve ever been to Australia, you’re terribly wrong. The plane pilots are all in on this, and have in all actuality only flown you to islands close nearby – or in some cases, parts of South America, where they have cleared space and hired actors to act out as real Australians.Australia is one of the biggest hoaxes ever created, and you have all been tricked. Join the movement today, and make it known that they have been deceived. Make it known, that this has all just been a cover-up. The things these “Australian” says to be doing, all these swear words and actions based on alcoholism, MDMA and bad decisions, are all ways to distract you from the ugly truth that is one of the greatest genocides in history. 162,000 people were said to have been transported to this imaginary land during a mere 80 years, and they are all long dead by now. They never reached that promised land. Tell the truth. Stand up for what is right. Make sure to spread the world – Australia is not real. It’s a codeword for the cold-blooded murder of more than a hundred thousand people, and it is not okay. We will not accept this.Stand up for the ones who died. Let it be known, that Australia does not exist.

    Spread

    It started had spread out from Facebook, the original comment section has tens of thousands of comments of comments, some funny others not so much. It was even picked by some media outlets. It is hard to say who had the biggest influence on the spread of the copypasta, as it is rarely used on 4chan and Reddit

  • 11/01/17--07:58: NAMBLA Protest Sign
  • Overview

    NAMBLA Protest Sign refers to a sign at a protest of a talk by right-wing media personality Mike Cernovich at New York City’s Columbia University that claims “No Pedo Bashing.” The sign has been reported on as planted by the alt-right in order to make the protestors appear to have sympathies for pedophiles, though Cernovich and noted Infowars writer Paul Joseph Watson have claimed that the reports of a plant are “fake news”.

    Background

    On October 30th, 2017, Gothamist reporter Jake Offenhartz[1] tweeted an image of a group of protestors holding a sign branded by North American Man/boy Love Association (NAMBLA) that reads “NO WHITESUPREMACY. NO PEDOBASHING. NO MIKECERNOVICH.” Offenhartz attributed the sign to the Alt-right, figuring it was a plant attempting to make the protestors look like they sympathized with pedophiles.



    Developments

    After Offenhartz posted the photo, Cernovich and other prominent alt-right figures such as Paul Joseph Watson, Gavin McInnes, and Jack Posobeic began tweeting the photo as though NAMBLA were part of the protest against Cernovich.[2] The image in Cernovich’s tweet was removed by Twitter (shown below, left), leading Watson to claim Twitter was trying to censor it (shown below, right).



    The story of Columbia protestors marching with pedophiles went viral on the right, to the point where Donald Trump Jr. notably liked many of Paul Joseph Watson’s tweets about the event on Twitter.[3]



    Writing about the ordeal the day after the protest,[2] Offenhartz quotes Mistee Denson, a Columbia student and protest organizer, as saying, “Someone said ‘hold this real quick’ and then they proceeded to snap pics. Someone quickly realized what it said and ran them off. Unfortunately, they got what they wanted.” Offenhartz also notes that Cernovich contemporary Jack Posobeic, who attended Cernovich’s speaking event, was behind planting the “Rape Melania” sign which went viral during the protests after the 2016 United States Presidential Election. [4] Select All[5] and The Daily Beast[6] were among the sites to cover the sign as a hoax orchestrated by the alt-right.

  • 11/03/17--09:13: Soy Boy
  • About

    “Soy Boy” is a pejorative which is often used in right-wing online communities to describe men lacking masculine characteristics, bearing many similarities to the slang term “cuck”. The term is based on the presence of phytoestrogens contained within soybeans, which have led some to conclude that soy products feminize men who consume them.

    Origin

    According to a study by Canadian researchers published in November 2009, soy products contain the second highest relative phytoestrogen content after nuts and oilseeds.[2] In April 2010, an article by Dr. Mark Messina of the School of Public Health in Loma Lina, California revealed that soy consumption has no effect on the levels and quality of male sperm.[1]

  • About

    Samus Aran is the lead character from the NintendoMetroid franchise. She has been a popular Nintendo hero, appearing in Nintendo spinoff games such as Super Smash Brothers, and has inspired memes and fan art.

    Origin

    Samus was introduced in the first Metroid game, released August 6th, 1986.[1] Samus is a galactic bounty hunter with a powerful exoskeleton suit which has weapons such as missiles and mines. In the first game, her gender is not revealed until the end of the game, announcing her as one of the first female protagonists in video game history.



    Spread

    Samus has since appeared in every Metroid game, as well as every Super Smash Brothers game. In 2004’s Metroid: Zero Mission, another form of Samus in which she is portrayed as a blonde in a skin-tight blue jumpsuit called the Zero Suit was revealed (gameplay shown below, left). Zero Suit Samus made her console debut in Metroid: Other M (shown below, right), which some fans received poorly for the overt feminization of Samus.[2] Zero Suit Samus appeared in Super Smash Brothers Brawl and Super Smash Brothers Wii U.



    Samus has been called one of the most influential characters in gaming, and is in the Guinness Book of World Records Gamer’s Edition as the first playable human female character in a mainstream video game. Much discussion has been given to Samus’ gender and sex appeal in gaming journalism, as journalists have debated Samus’ cultural impact as a feminist icon as well as a sexual character. Samus has been portrayed in various pieces of fan art on Tumblr and DeviantArt.
