CNN Goes Ballastic Over 15-Year-Old Kid’s Memes

It started with a typical ludicrous tweet by Donald “The Red Queen” Trump showing him body slamming a CNN logo head and ended with an epic public tantrum by CNN, which tracked down and publicly doxxed the 15-year-old boy who created the comedic video. If I didn’t know any better, I’d think CNN is deliberately committing institutional suicide. For that matter, so is Trump.

The boy goes by the Reddit handle “Hansassholesolo.” Besides his wrestling parody, Hans posted a meme making some interesting observations about who exactly is behind CNN. The words “in-group” and “nepotism” come to mind. The meme certainly triggered CNN. Curiously, it called it “antisemitic”, signalling that it’s some sort of thought crime to identify the people who run the network as Jews. Its as if calling the sky blue on a clear summer day is antisemitic? We are no Han’s fans however, most of his memes involve crass Muslim demonization for dumb-dumbs.

We will have to see how this plays out. CNN ran an article in which Hans eats crow and apologizes for making the satire. Obviously, the scam here is to start grouping satire with overly used “hate speech” labels. The tip off that this may be a tawdry setup is the statement the 15-year-old provided to CNN. Even if he is real this sounds highly scripted and looks like a psyop.

“To people who troll on the Internet for fun, consider your words and actions conveyed in your message and who it might upset or anger,” he wrote. “Put yourself in their shoes before you post it. If you have a problem with trolling it is an addiction just like any other addiction someone can have to something and don’t be embarrassed to ask for help. Trolling is nothing more than bullying a wide audience. Don’t feed your own self-worth based upon inflicting suffering upon others online just because you are behind a keyboard.”

There’s a strong backlash to all this. #CNNBlackmail is trending, and many are furious. Only the echo chamber executives at CNN would have thought this tactic would work.

Late breaking update: two days after this furor CNN is now admitting they doxxed the wrong guy.

In other quarters, such as the shitlords central Daily Stormer, folks are calling for an in kind harassment campaign against the reporters involved and CNN executives AND their families. You can anticipate that some will go overboard on this. The New Nationalist knows we speak to a more mature audience, but also to brighter, younger nationalists, too. To the latter, we advise keeping your reactions and comments non-threatening. Absolutely do not directly harass CNN staff other than to call them out as cowards and bullies.

Comments like this one are totally appropriate. Use good judgement. Don’t give these operatives ammo. Finally, do not let whatever “happened” to poor Hans quell your right to free speech.

    One, Hansassholesolo, a 15 year. Years from now schoolchildren will learn about Semitism from The Diary of HanAssholeSolo.

    Interesting take here from Russ that the kid himself may be a psy-op … tho my instinct is that the ‘apology’ obtained by criminal extortion here, was written by CNN itself, that actually is the standard modus operandi, the people making the threats script the fake submission the victim signs or publishes.

    This is a big, big felony crime … Jeff Sessions should get quickly involved here (assuming there is some reality to him). Similar cases get major imprisonment, and here we have not only interstate extortion, but a racketeering conspiracy seeking to deprive a US citizen of his civil liberties, threats against a minor, etc … a lot of years of hard time for the CNN K-File crew that CNN hired from Buzzfeed, if the law is applied to them as it has been applied to others.

    Russ is correct that counter-threats of internet nastiness is not the way here, though certainly publish about the perpetrators. The heavy-duty approach, is to put big public pressure on the relevant prosecutors & attorneys general, both federal and state, to get them to apply the laws to CNN that get so ferociously applied to blackmailers who don’t have CNN-style political connections … and then expose the justice system for pro-oligarch lawlessness if the prosecutions don’t happen.

    Controlled demolition or long deserved schadenfreude for CNN?

    Anglin subscribes to the Official 9/11 Story. His inflammatory language and stunts serve to alienate moderates, who might otherwise be amenable to a reasonable, measured approach to ethno-centrism.
