In 2011, I read the manifesto of the Norwegian mass shooter.
It struck me as ludicrously pompous.
Also, his portraits were very similar to satirical photos popular in the early 1980s.
I'm now convinced that the Norwegian was the first trolling mass shooter.
Most people didn't read the manifesto.
Here are some quotes:
"3.40 Applying deceptive means in urban guerrilla warfare
"Give the impression to police authorities that you are after cash, a few million Euro. Tell them to prepare the funds and order them to make a delivery at a defined location and time. This may allow you to conceal your real objective for a while."
"If the Police believe you are just another criminal after cash they will generally avoid armed confrontation and instead attempt to arrest you at a later point."
This isn't real. He's pretending to offer sage advice on urban combat, but he was a former clerk and farmer who was unemployed when he carried out his attack.
He's not delusional. This is trolling.
"Do not break any laws which will lead to a pursuit before initiating your primary mission. An imprudent act might give up your position or intentions away to the enemy."
He broke multiple laws before his attack.
He tried to buy weapons illegally in Prague, he engaged in financial scams, and he violated tax laws.
But EVERYONE in Norway breaks as many laws as they can.
That's what happens in nanny states.
Those photos are a jarring contrast to every other image of him.
That's the point.
He's trolling us into thinking he was a vain ladies' man, when in reality he had no interest in women or men.
THE WHOLE POINT is to get people to study him.
But there's nothing to study.
I total waste of time.
MEMRI got trolled.
They did the same thing with THIS guy's "manifesto."
The problem is that the "Alt-Right" were clearly NOT satirizing anything.
They were expressing common cause.
Dave Chapelle satirized racism absolutely brilliantly.
And Part Two.
SATIRE is immediately seen as such.
TROLLING is designed to make people think you're serious so that they make fools out of themselves believing you.
The "white power" sign was invented by trolls.
It continues to fool the "experts."
"In 2017, the 'okay' hand gesture acquired a new and different significance thanks to a hoax by members of the website 4chan to falsely promote the gesture as a hate symbol, claiming that the gesture represented the letters 'wp,' for 'white power.'"
"The 'okay' gesture hoax was merely the latest in a series of similar 4chan hoaxes using various innocuous symbols; in each case, the hoaxers hoped that the media and liberals would overreact by condemning a common image as white supremacist.
"In the case of the 'okay' gesture, the hoax was so successful the symbol became a popular trolling tactic on the part of right-leaning individuals, who would often post photos to social media of themselves posing while making the 'okay' gesture."
What happens in the best act of trolling?
Your trolling becomes real.
"Ironically, some white supremacists themselves soon also participated in such trolling tactics, lending an actual credence to those who labeled the trolling gesture as racist in nature."
Here's where the ADL itself gets fooled.
"By 2019, at least some white supremacists seem to have abandoned the ironic or satiric intent behind the original trolling campaign and used the symbol as a sincere expression of white supremacy, such as when Australian white supremacist Brenton Tarrant flashed the symbol during a March 2019 courtroom appearance soon after his arrest for allegedly murdering 50 people in a shooting spree at mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand."
I read the Christchurch mass shooter's manifesto.
It's nothing but shitposting.
It's not real.
His "white power" hand signal is not real.
I watched the entire video of his mass shooting.
It was trolling from beginning to end.
Remember: The "okay" hand gesture becoming a symbol of white supremacism was a hoax.
NOW trolls are hoaxing the world into thinking that white supremacists are committing mass shootings.
Trolls are comedians with no talent.
They're performance artists with no artistry.
And they're all deeply mentally ill. Trolling is a sign of catastrophic insanity.
I hope that the Dayton police released the video of the mass shooter being shot to pieces as a warning.
It was very satisfying to see the Antifa satanist struggle to get up as pieces of his body were flying off.
NOW someone needs to leak the autopsy photos.
I knew in 2011 that there was something very wrong with the notion that the Norwegian mass shooter's "manifesto" had to be taken at face value, but I couldn't figure out what the real story was.
Now I understand that he was the first trolling mass shooter.
Trolls compete with each other. Therefore unless we do something FAST, we're going to see "satirical" mass shooting happen much more often.
The trolling mass shootings for notoriety is a prospect that is frightening.
@ThomasWic I watched Bill Mitchell spend 2 days arguing with same idiots all saying
"Nope nope nope, never gonna happen, we can't have that, they might come for ME someday, so drop this!"

You have a big Twitter platform.
Tell everyone MY story:
On September 28, 2018, tweeted in reference to leftist attackers, "We'll need to see assailants shot to pieces on air before this stops. Brains and teeth flying."
Immediately banned from Twitter for life.
Alyssa Milano reported me to the FBI, saying my comment was about her.
Two local cops attached to an FBI task force came to my house.

Cops showed me a tweet I'd sent in 2015, with the attached photo and the comment, "I take psychotropic medication so that others can live."
I explained that I sent the tweet in response to endless death threats.
I asked the cops if they wanted to see my meds; they said yes, so I showed them, and they wrote them in the report.
They asked me if I wanted to harm myself or others. I said no.
Yikes. See ADDENDUM.
The cops agreed that in the face of death threats, it was smart for me to present myself as armed and unafraid.
They asked if I was employed, and I told them I'm an investor. They asked about investments, and I told them about about closed-end mutual funds.
The interview took half an hour.
Yikes. See ADDENDUM TWO.
Here in deep-blue red-flag California, the most famous leftist political activist filed a complaint against me.
I have mental illness in the form of PTSD, I take a heavy load of psychotropic medication, I'd posted a tweet of myself holding a firearm, and I was banned from twitter for "making threats."
The cops CLOSED THE CASE, and nobody took my guns.
They shook my hand and wished me well.
I had EVERY CARD stacked against me.
@ThomasWic thanks for showing "trolling" people. You said a while back on your other thread it would continue and so it did.
Do you know why the Government Depts and even the president continue to say White supremicist? That word was also used in the last administration.
Levin had a great show on virtue today.
Not mutually exclusive or you could be talking about the same reason but looking at a different angle. People have pointed out that the breakdown of traditional family coincides with the rise of mass shootings. Leftism destroys families and wrecks people, hence mental illness increases.
@ThomasWic can we get this Toot rolled up so I can share? Now I’m just screenshotting and sending my sister about 15 pics .. Or can you point me in the right direction to figure it out?
Is there a thread rolling app for Mastodon?
Pinafore is a standalone web client for Mastodon, which recently hit version 1.9.0
An option to disable infinite scroll
Timeline and notification filters (added in v1.8.0)
I would have to experiement to see if it would serve as a thread rollup.
I just did a share with the link below. Seems to work ok:
This is a experiment, can you copy this link and send to your sister?
@ThomasWic Excellent thread, not surprisingly. One day I'll share my experience of being caregiver to my sister who has a significant mental illness, coupled now with physical illness, and her deterioration. NOT a role for the faint of heart.
@ThomasWic excellent thread, thanks. Btw - Here’s another pic of the Ohio shooter looking deeply insane. It’s now emerging that when he was in high school, he kept a notebook with a list of people he wanted to hurt, kill, etc. Just as with the Florida shooter, this guy was an obvious danger.
It’s an offshoot of celebrity culture.... call it mass shooter stardom.
The Garlic Festival & Dallas Courthouse Shooters were also shot before they could really get going.
I'd be in favor of Summary Execution as well.
Dayton was clearly a summary execution.
They fired at him for ten full seconds.
I've never seen that before.
But I approve.
Those who label words as violence do so with the sole purpose of justifying violence against words.
