In the year 2440, a techno-Utopian Earth finally makes first contact with not one but an entire array of advanced extraterrestrial civilizations. They have been around for a while, waiting for humans to grow the fuck up and join their galactic good guy club. But the pressure is on because everyone faces a threat from hostile invaders from outside the galaxy. Earth's probation period is expedited in light of this, and is granted full membership. Everything is going well until some asshole opens a time capsule from 2020 and inadvertently causes an outbreak of etho-nationalism and alt-right racism that sours the deal just in time to fuck up the war and get everyone killed.

A determined centrist learns that the only way to find the kernel of goodness in a Nazi is by digging it out with a claw hammer.

Doesn't need to be.  Swarming tactics are made for the internet.
True enough. Are there any tactics shown to be effective in countering such swarms short of administrator-level fucks given?

It's probably my paranoia, or I'm just missing a large piece of the picture somewhere, but it seems that popular Facebook groups (expecially the ones with lax moderation) tend to hit some level of activity or membership size, and then face an almost automatic onslaught of alt-right trolling. I've seen it happen to a number of groups, not least of which almost every single Discordian group. It tends to happen faster when there's a high level of anti-Trump or otherwise progressive content or opinion being shared.

I'm not saying there's an Alt-Right mastermind out there, but... is there an Alt-Right mastermind out there? Because the level of racist, sexist, generally douchebaggy trolling spikes and it tends to either destroy the group, or turn it into a nuked-out husk filled with Pepe memes and people calling everything that moves "cuck". Am I crazy, or is this an actual phenomenon? And if it is a thing that actually does happen almost predictably, is there more to it than just roving bands of neo-Nazis that just accidentally hit some kind of critical mass and begin festering?

What good is achieving something that's possible? You don't prove anything and you don't learn anything that way. Trying to achieve the impossible is the only way forward, and even when you inevitably fail, you'll often be surprised by how close you came to succeeding. You'll make progress in spite of your failure.

I meant to add something snide here at the end but I couldn't think of anything.

I don't know who it was, but someone seems to have picked up the URL https://official.gop and turned it into a mock Republican site. Maybe people on PD might have some ideas about content that could go into this site in order to further some nefarious plan. If so, it wouldn't hurt to post some of those ideas in this thread, in case the person who registered this domain accidentally stumbles across the thread and uses some of the ideas.

Now this is the kind of thing I came here to see. It's just too bad I don't think you're being at all sarcastic when you say you don't know who runs it, which makes me disappointed that none of us was clever enough to think of it first.

i know, right. 'tis a shame.

There should be a page that slams liberals where a video of the Yes Men DNC prank is worked in as an example of what democrats actually want.

Also, the menu takes up half the screen on iOS.

Not to keep being needlessly critical, but something else I've noticed about the most frequent posters here: Anytime someone new comes along and has anything remotely contrary or engaging to offer, you puff up, hold hands, start name-calling, and proceed to muse about it being a sockpuppet for some other (usually oddly specific) individual. Paranoia, insularity, and hyperreaction all rolled into one.

This really is a delightful if elaborate front you manage.

Still, my question stands, and I think my position is clear. If there are any non-chest-beaters that frequent the board, I'd be glad to have you chime in.

no, lol. actual new people get treated like human beings until they prove themselves not to be such. you, on the other hand, are not new, your "points" are not new, your "questions" are not new, your approach is definitely not new. just tossing in the "maybe i was wrong" thing in your OP doesn't mean anything when you go directly back to the same tired shit within 3 posts.

second appearance: 'guys it was just an experiment, i've decided not to be a troll', is still obvious troll.

Then again, you know all this and you're just here to hear your keyboard clatter. So, whatever.

You had me right up until this point. Not to cry about it, but I think it was uncalled for. If I've given that impression, I'd like to know how.

If I haven't forgotten what the Nazis did after 70 years, why would I forget you being a troll after a matter of weeks?

When fly a Nazi flag or don a stupid bedsheet like you're doing the world a favor, you are allying yourself not just with the disgusting ideology behind those murders, but the acts themselves.

As for this, my only rebuttal that it is easier to hold an enemy to their standards than your own. In other words, understanding (not assuming, but finding agreement on) how your enemy sees themself (and particularly how they see you) can be useful in strategizing against them - in both diplomacy and war.

I understand how they see themselves. As warriors for the preservation of "white culture" or "white genes" or whatever euphemism they think will get their foot in the door of polite conversation. That is, they are militant opponents of multiculturalism and racial and sexual equality. They believe -- at the very least -- that white people exist as a somehow distinct subset of the human species, that our history and genes give us moral, intellectual, or other advantages over non-whites, and that it would be folly to lose those advantages by mingling with "other races". That is as benign as they get. By identifying themselves with symbols of murder, they are saying outright what lengths they are willing to go to in order defend their repugnant beliefs. They use those symbols specifically because of their violent connotations in an attempt to intimidate people and incite violence. I reject every foundation of every belief they have, forcefully. They see themselves as living outside the rules and regulations of our open and inclusive society -- and since "rights" are only meaningful in the context of civilization, by rejecting civilization, they have forfeited whatever rights they may have had.
