Deplatform Hate is the latest antifa-allied initiative designed to strip conservatives of their online presence. Deplatform Hate consists of a hand-selected gang of socialists funded by an unnamed “progressive not-for-profit”. Deplatform Hate pledges to dox Trump supporters who they conflate with nazis.
With the enthusiastic blessing of the establishment media, several antifa-loving individuals have been selected to represent Deplatform Hate. These self-proclaimed anti-fascists have gained respect and notoriety for their skill in doxxing the “far-right”, an umbrella term applied to non-socialists.
While the group does not appear to have any particular skill set other than stalking conservatives online, they do have a large social media presence. Christian Exoo, 39, known to his followers on Twitter as “AntiFash Gordon” has 56.6k followers at the time of this writing. He declared on Twitter earlier this month that the “goal” of Deplatform Hate is to “kick the far-right off the internet.”
“We’re tearing out the far-right movement’s digital roots,” the Deplatform Hate website declares.
White supremacists are not limited to Trump supporters for Exoo, “We fight the police. The police are absolutely a white supremacist institution,” he noted.
Leftist activist journalist Andy Kroll referred to Exoo as Deplatform Hate’s “de facto leader” in a gushing article at Rolling Stone Magazine. According to the piece, the socialists were brought together by “a progressive not-for-profit” who paid them ostensibly “to watch for and prevent election-related violence”:
“Nearly all of them identified as anti-fascists, and all had years of experience infiltrating and exposing the online far right. They had been brought together by a progressive not-for-profit to watch for and prevent election-related violence, for which they would receive a modest stipend for several weeks of work.”
The “Progressive not-for profit” group funding the effort was unnamed, of course. However, Deplatform Hate has an alliance with “Sleeping Giants,” whose self-proclaimed founder Nandini Jammi left because of white privilege, or something. She bragged in July that Sleeping Giants “built a community of 400,000+ followers, who helped us lose Breitbart 90% of its ad revenues, put Bill O’Reilly out of a job and deplatform hate figures like Alex Jones and Milo Yiannopoulos.”
Sleeping Giants “whips digital lynch mobs into frenzies against their political opposition, in order to get them censored on corporate social media platforms and deprive them of their livelihood,” as aptly described at Big League Politics.
In a January 25th Facebook post, Nandini Jammi claimed that Sleeping Giants will be “teaming up” with Deplatform Hate.
Also cited in Kroll’s article was Molly Conger, a.k.a. “Socialist Dog Mom“, who boasts a Twitter following of 112.5k at the time of this writing and often accuses “Proud Boys” of wanting to rape and kill her. “The Proud Boys had instructed their members to beat me to death on sight,” she alleged, without evidence of course. Conger, who “identifies as a socialist and an anti-fascist,” also claims she has been “been pushed down, beaten, choked, and gassed by a variety of cops”.
“They reject the idea that antifa’s methods are steeped in violence – a narrative advanced by President Trump and his supporters,” Robert Klemko of the Washington Post wrote about several of the “sleuths” in January, foreshadowing those whom Deplatform Hate intends to target.
Klemko also dutifully reported Molly Conger’s outrageous claims: “One of Conger’s opponents hosted a podcast featuring a regular segment during which the hosts imagined new ways to rape her,” he wrote.
Exoo, who once created a fake website to collect names and addresses of those who dislike Antifa also claimed that he “faces daily death threats from people who describe murdering his family, too.” The tactic of claiming to be a victim after doxxing innocent people is dubbed the Luke O’Brien Effect.
On January 6th, Conger drove to D.C. from Virginia, where she “planned to take as many photos and videos as she could, gathering evidence for future investigations.”
Deplatform Hate also includes Talia Lavin, a former New Yorker “fact-checker” who taught journalism (“focused on far-right extremism and social justice”) at New York University. Lavin gained attention in 2018 for falsely claiming that a Marine who lost his legs in Afghanistan had a nazi tattoo. She also likes to post photos of herself holding swords.
Also pulled from the unnamed “progressive not-for-profit” group to dox conservatives is Abner Hauge, whose hard left group “Left Coast Right Watch” website covers “right-wing extremism.” LCRW features reports from groups such as the anarcho-syndicalist Industrial Workers of the World, which is discussed peripherally at RAIR Foundation USA.
Out of the six Twitter accounts Deplatform Hate follows as of February 26, 2021, the first is Joan Donovan. Donovan has worked with Data & Society, a group founded by Microsoft and funded in party by George Soros’ Open Society Foundations. Christian Exoo and Joan Donovan both participated in a local news broadcast from Boston earlier this month.
The unapologetic and relentless attack on ideological opposition, embraced by the establishment media, ends in tyranny. It must be resisted fully.
