CNN Blackmails Reddit User Over Trump Wrestling Video, Threatens To Expose Identity -- Unleash the Virtuous Trolls!

(Stillness in the Storm Editor) Anyone who's spent a little time on social media or in the comment sections of various content sites has likely encountered what are known as internet trolls, people who pour venom, hatred, and antagonism into an online discussion or comment thread to stir up trouble. But from the dark and dank corners of the internet, what some are calling virtuous trolls have emerged on the scene. While no one knows for sure where they came from—some claiming to be the progeny of the ancient Egyptian god Kek—they rally to defend the underdogs of the internet, often from baseless attacks on the part of officialdom and their proxies, like the mainstream media.

All kidding aside, there appears to be a growing body of truth inclined people, disgruntled with the status quo, and who are not afraid to use social media and the power of what some call meme-magic to derail obvious propaganda and social engineering platforms.

I've only recently become aware of this phenomenon, which seems to be an organic outgrowth of activism from the "misfits" of society. Apparently, some of these virtuous trolls rally under the banner of Kekistan, a fictional nation-state where those who reject mainstream propaganda and deceptive politics rally to defend the truth in various ways, often with a sardonic trickster archetypal tone.

I don't know for sure if the man who made the CNN Trump video is a self-identifying Kekistani, but he seems to fit the MO.

Another interesting point about this group—of which, I am still learning about—is that the mainstream media is doing everything in their power to label them radical racists and conspiracy theorists.

Somehow, Pepe the frog became their image of choice, which the media began labeling as a symbol of hate speech during the end of 2016, likely because this same group was having a major sway over public opinion. But to be clear, the group doesn't espouse racist ideologies (at least that I've seen), but to question an official narrative makes one subject to attack. Specifically, the idea is that anyone who doesn't believe that white men oppress all other people must be racist—which is venomously ironic given how inherently racist such a viewpoint is. But this is exactly what some so-called progressives believe, which is what the unseen controllers are pushing in the media and at colleges, as was shockingly revealed at the Evergreen University protest last month.

There's a lot more "awakening" happening out there than we might believe. It's happening in small ways that might not seem noticeable to a more advanced student of the truth. The virtuous trolls have dealt major blows to the propaganda machine of the Cabal, of which, CNN is a major player.

The more outrageous and tyrannical these so-called objective and unbiased news agencies are, the more active the virtuous trolls become.

And how revealing is it that CNN has to resort to blackmail to keep their image maintained? Shouldn't a news organization focus on reporting things objectively as a primary tool for building the business?

CNN is taking heat for threatening to publish the identity of a private citizen who posted a video lampooning the network.

Redditor 'HanAssholeSolo' is credited as the creator of a clip showing President Trump beating up a man with a CNN logo superimposed over his face, which the President then tweeted on Sunday morning.
In response, CNN and it's MSM brethren caught the vapors - with pundits accusing the President of inciting violence against journalists. CNN media reporter Brian Stelter tweeted this screed:
While the White House has said the video didn't come from Reddit, CNN's Andrew Kaczynski went on a deep dive, uncovering now-deleted posts from 'HanAssholeSolo' which the network deemed offensive. CNN decided not to publish the the user's personal details, for now, because HanAssholeSolo has 'showed his remorse' for the 'offending posts' and 'ugly behavior' - effectively threatening to expose a private citizen if he doesn't stay in line.


HanAssholeSolo issued an apology on Reddit Tuesday, calling the video a "prank, nothing more."
“The meme was created purely as satire, it was not meant to be a call to violence against CNN or any other news affiliation... ...I had no idea anyone would take it and put sound to it and then have it put up on the President’s Twitter feed.”
Here's what people thought about that:
Meanwhile, CNN's Andrew Kaczynski has said that people are misinterpreting the article.
Sure Andrew... CNN isn't publishing his name "because he is a private citizen" who "showed remorse," yet you reserve the right to expose his identity if you don't like how he behaves in the future. Sounds like a threat.

How did they find him?

While CNN maintains they were able to link HanAssholeSolo's posts to his Facebook account, a 4chan user claiming to be a CNN insider, suggested that CNN obtained his IP address from his ISP and 'unmasked' him.

CNN's latest blunder follows a devastating week for the network, whose last shred of credibility was destroyed in a blaze of glory by James O'Keefe last week. Reactions to the network's threat to expose (or 'Dox') Redditor HanAssholeSolo have been hilarious... you can see for yourself by searching the hashtag #CNNBlackMail on Twitter.

Finally - 4chan has declared WAR

This should go well for CNN
