    Terrorist Using Memes 

    Look at ISIS, one of the reasons they were so successful was because of their use of social media. They knew how to run a meme war better than anyone else. They where able to make ISIS and caliphate look like something to be part of, by showing a fancy almost glamorous life. It funny to think that making them look gay was what we did to counterattack them. CAIR made some changes to how they operate. They are trying to get involved in politics and propaganda. We can use those same technology ISIS used against CAIR, but with a different technique and style. Most of the left pushes for Muslim extremist to have power. They are also using social media to push their agenda and anti-Semitism.

    Anime Chicks Politicians 

    Kim Jong-Un apparently passed away recently. After that, his sister apparently, Kim Yo-Jong started taking over. She was film running late a meeting, after her brother’s apparent death.  Not only that she was running late, she was carrying a piece of bread in her mouth, a putting on her shoes as she was heading to the meeting. This made for a great meme. It is an interesting meme when you notice the fact at how dark and scary North Korea is. Not much is none about them, besides the fact that it is horrible there. They were one of the most feared a ruthless, when it comes to how they treat people. And now, this anime girl, is what is used to describe someone who could be running this horrible place. There have been many memes used to describe her, and in many different lights.

    Something interesting to note with North Korea, is their history when it comes to having first ladies. Kim Jong-Un was the first leader of North Korea, to show off his wife, Ri Sol-Ju, on a regular basis. The leaders before him very rarely showed off their wives. Even though Kim Jong-Un is known to get around, he still acts loyal. She was a propaganda piece in a way.

    Yeah, a Russian news network published this pictured, to talk about a sanction on Japan.

    Another interesting thing to note is Natalia Poklonskaya. She was born in Ukraine but is a Russian Politician. She is also young and beautiful. I do not understand those people, but apparently there’s a war between Russia and Ukraine. In this sense she might make for a good meme.  There have been pictures even comparing the two Anime politicians.

    How to Troll Like a Boss (or do anything else) 

    Many people try to start shit on the internet. Everyone from the Alt-Right to ANTIFA and even just comedians try to do this. The truth is there is a process to be more effective. The US and other intel communities have a process called DADA, which means: Data, Analysis, Decision, Action. Data means what you can see, or what information you collect. Analysis is when you go over the data to see what conclusion you can make of the enemy. Decision means looking at the current resources, to see what can be done in the most effective way possible. Action means pulling off the decision you made, sometimes who ever is pulling of the action, will need to adjust the plan, when everything falls apart. This is how the CIA does stuff. This same process can be applied to online trolling.

    The first step is data. No matter who you are trying to troll it is important that you watch them. There is literally a quote, “Knowing is half the battle.” This even more true when it comes to online trolling. You need to have a good amount of information that you can exploit. Most of the time, when someone messes something up, they are quick to cover it. It is important for you to take note when your enemy does this. Most of the time it is something embarrassing or something corrupt that they are doing. Sometimes when gathering data, you can also spot your enemies weakness.

    Analysis is probably one of the most overlooked aspects of trolling, and at the same time is it the biggest down fall of people trying to exploit information. The most common mistake, I see people making when it comes to analysis, is falling for lies. “Trust nothing you hear, and half of what you see,” this quote describe analysis well. People always take things at face value. Look at CNN vs private journalism. I am not saying private journalism is not always true, but neither is CNN. The one thing about CNN is they have good production value, and have been around for sometimes, this leads people to think of them as a reputable news source, even though it is been proven otherwise. Also, when it comes to analysis it is also important to try to figure out what, their target is trying to think. The most important part of analysis is being able to look at data from a logical point of view, rather than an emotional standpoint.

    Decision is abstract when it comes to internet trolling. When the CIA or intel agencies are at this stage, they usually go to diplomats, or politicians. Long story short, when it comes to this at a government level it is important, that the decision or the following action does not piss people off. When it comes to internet trolling, the best thing to do is to share content, and ideas to troll groups. The important thing to remember at this stage is do not piss off the wrong people. When it comes to sharing stuff to troll groups, you need to make sure the troll group will have a positive interest in the content you are trying to push. If you do not you just get back lash. The best thing to do, is join different troll groups. Then find out how they are different and what each of these groups are into. It funny there is a lot more politics in intel and trolling, than most people realize.

    The last step is action. No sense trying to do something bad ass if you do not commit. When you try to troll someone or do anything in life you have to have some dedication. If you do not you just end up failing, and not because you were wrong. If you ever notice some of the most unsuccessful people in the world, talk about their plan. They say they are going to do all this wonderful stuff, but never really do anything. It is because they forget the last and final step to any good decision.

    Fake Illuminati Cult 

    I know everyone has their own opinions on the illuminati, and other shadowy cults and everything. That is all good and fun, but I want to talk about this group.

    https://www.illuminatiofficial.org/

    They are basically the same scam, as scientology, but instead of being based on some sci-fi novel, they play into the conspiracy theory of the illuminati. This group give false offers of money, and power, and then takes advantage of their new members, to scam them and promote this group. They do a good job, mocking them and making people believe they are the real deal. The use memes very well to convey, a sense of being the real, deal.

    The illuminati, depending on what you hear, is all about the group gaining power, money, and influence. Many conspiracy theorists have noted seeing real life examples of the illuminati, in pop culture, and in power. This online scam uses a lot of the same symbology that conspiracy theorist points out. They even go as far as to describe what their symbology means. When they go into the meaning of the symbology, they also bring up positive traits of the illuminati that Alex Jones talks about. Here are some of the examples of how this fake cult describes their logo.

    The Pyramid: Money is not the root of all evil, money is the route to all freedom. The selfish pursuit of money is a hollow goal, but the pursuit of the goodness that money can create is one of humanity’s greatest responsibilities.

    The Eye: Living humans evolve at a rapid pace and continue to advance in ability through study, practice, and self-improvement. The human species is guarded by a coalition of its most elite members called the Illuminati.

    The Light: Every human is guided by an inner compass that points toward the Light, revealing truth and direction amidst decisions. All human spiritual beliefs ultimately seek the Light in ways differing only in form and function.

    The Eternal: Every human is one part of a larger, eternal design – individual gears in a clock that has no end. Though they may never realize it, a person’s actions have the power to alter the future of the entire world.

    The really messed up part is this worked. People fall for this because they play the part so well. They offer false hope, and people buy into it, for the simple reason that they seem real. The only reason they seem so real, is because they know how to meme. Even their writings, if you read it, play the part. This group has gone so far as to offer people millions of dollars, for personal information. Most websites could not pull this off, but they can.

    Discord 

    This has to be one of the best apps, I’ve ever used. The reason I like this app is because it’s help people with similar interest connect, from all around the world. It’s simple, yet there are many things you can do with it. Everything from simple chatting and voice calls, to file sharing.

    Discord was released in May of 2015. It was a VOIP with a text feature. When this app was originally produced, it was mainly aimed at the gamer community. Around the time of the release the app was pushes on Reddit only. This was because they founder of discord, found out that many reddit users, also used IRC. It has been a great way for people, with varying interest to connect.

    https://discordapp.com/download

    When you sign up for discord, you need to join something called a server. This is basically the name of a chat room. A lot or servers have a dedicated topic, whether it’s a unique interest, a company, or just a group of people who share a similar interest. When you want to find a server, you can search, them up, or join partner server (when you find one that has servers it partnered up with.) Sometimes you can ask people for an invite to a sever. The easiest way is to go to a website that allows people to advertise, and search up severs. They also have discord servers, that do the same thing. When you use these services, you can search any topic or field.

    Clear net:

    https://discordservers.com/

    https://top.gg/servers

    https://disboard.org/servers

    https://discordservers.me/

    Anyway, after you join a server. You may need to go through some type of verification process. This may be set up in many different ways. One thing, that makes discord interesting is the use of bots. These are also used to verify people. These bots can also track people. If your going to use discord, make sure you use a nick name, and fake photo.

    Goal Proposal: Applied Meme Sciences to Help with Personal Development 

    Goals Proposals: Applied Meme Sciences to Help with Personal Development

    Seeing how bad the world has become is important, many are not even the slightest bit aware. However, fawning over it makes you no better than people who show up at fires and disasters for a rush. Being apathetic to the downfall of our society also puts you on the level of most general losers.

    As for goals, I have several in mind.

    We need to work collectively to a create a sort of memetic “doctrine” or “protocols” that anyone can use and modify (I’ll elaborate more in a bit). Work to compile books, vidya, anime, movies, shows, ect. Whatever media that is not just of quality but also healthy. (think of it like creating options for a healthy “meme diet” I will also elaborate more on this.) A general resource library would be a fantastic tool.

    Something that can teach how to anonymize yourself online, give you library of information to be more physically healthy and strong, have access to better entertainment free of propaganda, and so on. Essentially a catalogue for spoon feeding people on topics many people struggle with. Many people struggle with addition, physical health issues, education issues, and so on, but these are generally kept separate to whatever meme about. The idea is to make them all connected, so you can learn how to be healthy. We need to practice what we preach. Lots of people who struggle don’t have many examples of other people turning their lives around. This is just a sad fact when it comes to self-improvement in a chan atmosphere. Not exactly someone to aspire too. So in this way, document our own personal success, and then get other people to share their stories. That way we show that these ideas work and help people recovering and moving forward feel like they aren’t alone. I’ll elaborate more on the meme doctrine and diet in my next posts. Feel free to chime in your thoughts.

    Burning Flags Memes: Two Very Different Types 

    When people want to this, it is mainly out of disrespect for who that flag represents. Sometimes it is against a country, sometimes it is against a belief. Anyway, how ever you look at it, it is a meme of some sort. In this post I want to look at two different versions of this meme: ANTIFA burning American flags and neo-nazi burning rainbow flags.

    ANTIFA burning American Flags

    I personally view this as disrespectful, but I still cannot say anything against free speech. The did this a lot during there protest in the late 2000’s. Very few arrests, took place because of it. They claimed that it was part of their freedom of speech. Another reason there were few arrests was because they were wearing “black block” which is basically slang, for them covering up their face. 

    https://www.wnd.com/2017/08/180000-americans-call-on-trump-to-recognize-antifa-as-terror-organization/

    Neo-Nazi Burning Gay Pride Flags

    Burning gay pride flags, is a lot more of a rare occurrence. When it happens it is usually met with more discrace than burning an American flag, in some parts. This one man got 15 years in prison, just for burning a gay pride flag.

    A 15-Year Sentence for Burning a Stolen Gay Pride Flag Is Not Justice

    I’m not saying one is worse, than the other. One is about disrespecting a country, the other is about disrespecting a social movement. They are both wrong, in their own sense, but are covered under freedom of speech, when applicable. It is however interesting to note the different reaction between the two.

    Dank Meme: Non-White Republican 

    There are many stereo types associated with being a republican. There is this idea, that all republicans are straight, white, Christian males, who are also racist. While there are some racist white males who are republican, there are also racist white males in the democrat party too. This type of person was constantly referred to as “Bigot,” and this term became famous during the 2016 election. The term bigot was only referred to the republican side of the political spectrum, even though they are just not, if not more diverse than the democrats. One thing that help the growth of this term, was how much it was pushed, by professional politicians. This was a label, that became more than just name calling. It seems like overnight, anyone who supported the republican party, was lump in with the KKK and neo-nazis. The messed-up part was people where actually believing this. People lost jobs, and relationships where destroyed, because of this connotation.

    The table started turning when people in the black community started to endorse republicans. Not only did blacks started coming out supporting republican, but also all other minority groups. This would become one of the biggest discrediting factors in the years to come.

    Anonymous and Influence 

    Anonymous was a hacker group, that grew out of 4chan, in the mid 2000s, but they grew. About a dozen years after they where founded, they managed to manipulate an election. Most people will not call people who troll people on the internet influential, but this becomes less and less the case. I am going to try to cover the influential side of the internet trolling movement, and how it works. There are many aspects that make anonymous and troll groups so influential: ability to adapt, power in numbers, and speed. When you throw in an unsuspecting target into the equation, the internet trolls usually win.

    One thing you need to realize about anonymous and the trolling movement, is they could adapt. If you look at Anonymous during Operation Chanology, one of their biggest aspects that help them out was there ability to adapt and change tactics for the situation. During Chanology a bunch of internet trolls had to protest in the streets. Most people where not expecting this, or so many protesters, but the internet trolls pulled it off. Even after that when chat rooms where getting raided, the ability to leave and form other chat rooms, with trusted individuals.

    Anonymous and troll groups are also successful because they have power in numbers. This is true, since the group is very inclusive, with many different members, with different views on life. Also, they have the ability to share an idea, with out siders, and have out siders share idea, making an outsider, a functioning part of the group. Also, it is interesting to note, Anonymous got there Guy Fawkes mask idea from a movie called V for Vendetta. One of the quotes was:

     “Beneath this mask there is more than flesh, beneath this mask there is an idea, (Mr. Creedy,) and ideas are bulletproof.”

    It interesting to note, that since Anonymous relies on spreading ideas, such as meme, propaganda, or just a drop from a dox, this is one of their most effective tactics. Another thing interesting to note, about troll groups and Anonymous, is the fact that they, are look down upon, by the people they want to go after. Most people think of people who are involved in Chan culture, or online chat rooms, as losers. The truth is there are a lot of smart people on these. It is just a question of when they decide to work together and what they work on. It is amazing what can be done.

    Internet Trolls vs Corona Virus Response 

    It seems like quarantine time got the best of some people. Not once but twice in the past few days internet trolls and hackers, who were against the Corona Virus Response(CVR), attacked both a rat out service, and also managed to dox WHO, the Gates foundation, and other people involved in CVR.

    On April 18, 2020, Bill De Blasio sent out a tweet, where he talks about social distancing. In his speech, on twitter, he mentioned a new service in place to help enforce social distancing. The mayor of NYC set up a hot line, 311-692, to help the authorities know who breaking quarantine rules was. It wasn’t long after, people started trolling this hot line and it’s not hard to see why, when this is reminiscent of darker times (racist past and Nazi Germany.) Many people did their part, in different ways. Some people sent pictures of them sent photos of their junk, some people sent memes, including Hitler memes, and some people even sent picture of Bill De Blasio breaking his own rules. Three days later the service was recalled.

    https://nypost.com/2020/04/21/de-blasios-social-distancing-tip-line-flooded-with-obscenities/

    Some people decided to do something a little more intense. A hacker managed to release almost 25,000 email addresses and passwords allegedly belonging to the National Institutes of Health, the World Health Organization, the Gates Foundation and other groups involved with CVR. They also managed to hack the Wuhan facility, where this all began. Whether or not you agree with how moral, and legal this all might seem, this does show how much more powerful, the trolling scene became, with everyone having time off.
