4Chan Users Issue Official Declaration of War Against CNN for Threatened Doxxing

The “Meme Wars” have now entered real-world space. 

This is actually a big deal.

Friendly Reddit moderators probably leaked the guy’s IP address of a member to CNN, CNN used that IP address to track down the user and extract an apology under threat of duress AND make him remove his original content from Reddit. Then they make his issue an apology while essentially ‘denouncing himself‘. CNN is trying to start their own police state and this will not end well for them.

These is CNN’s own words on the matter, and it’s pretty horrific.

On Reddit, “HanA**holeSolo” took credit for inspiring the tweet. Soon after, “HanA**holeSolo’s” other posts on Reddit, some of which included racist and anti-Semitic imagery, quickly circulated on social media.
Now the user is apologizing, writing in a lengthy post on Reddit that he does not advocate violence against the press and expressing remorse there and in an interview with CNN for other posts he made that were racist and anti-Semitic.
The apology came after CNN’s KFile identified the man behind “HanA**holeSolo.” Using identifying information that “HanA**holeSolo” posted on Reddit, KFile was able to determine key biographical details, to find the man’s name using a Facebook search and ultimately corroborate details he had made available on Reddit.
On Monday, KFile attempted to contact the man by email and phone but he did not respond. On Tuesday, “HanA**holeSolo” posted his apology on the subreddit /The_Donald and deleted all of his other posts.
“First of all, I would like to apologize to the members of the reddit community for getting this site and this sub embroiled in a controversy that should never have happened,” he wrote. “I would also like to apologize for the posts made that were racist, bigoted, and anti-semitic. I am in no way this kind of person, I love and accept people of all walks of life and have done so for my entire life. I am not the person that the media portrays me to be in real life, I was trolling and posting things to get a reaction from the subs on reddit and never meant any of the hateful things I said in those posts. I would never support any kind of violence or actions against others simply for what they believe in, their religion, or the lifestyle they choose to have. Nor would I carry out any violence against anyone based upon that or support anyone who did.”
The user further apologized for calls for violence against the press in his statement on Reddit.
“The meme was created purely as satire, it was not meant to be a call to violence against CNN or any other news affiliation,” he wrote. “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. It was a prank, nothing more. What the President’s feed showed was not the original post that was posted here, but loaded up somewhere else and sound added to it then sent out on Twitter. I thought it was the original post that was made and that is why I took credit for it. I have the highest respect for the journalist community and they put their lives on the line every day with the jobs that they do in reporting the news.”
The apology has since been taken down by the moderators of /The_Donald subreddit.
After posting his apology, “HanA**holeSolo” called CNN’s KFile and confirmed his identity. In the interview, “HanA**holeSolo” sounded nervous about his identity being revealed and asked to not be named out of fear for his personal safety and for the public embarrassment it would bring to him and his family.
CNN is not publishing “HanA**holeSolo’s” name because he is a private citizen who has issued an extensive statement of apology, showed his remorse by saying he has taken down all his offending posts, and because he said he is not going to repeat this ugly behavior on social media again. In addition, he said his statement could serve as an example to others not to do the same.
CNN reserves the right to publish his identity should any of that change.
After Trump tweeted the video on Sunday, “HanA**holeSolo” took to Reddit to say he was “honored,” writing “Holy s—!! I wake up and have my morning coffee and who retweets my s—post but the MAGA EMPORER himself!!! I am honored!!” MAGA is an acronym for the President’s campaign slogan: Make America great again.”
In the phone interview on Tuesday, “HanA**holeSolo” said the White House did not ask his permission to use the GIF, and said he probably would have said no if they had.

    This is escalating quickly.

      Every Tweet at CNN’s site is full of tweeters attacking them for the threatened doxxing of the (reportedly) 15-year-old. Even one I saw with a 2 minute posting time had a good 50+ negative, accusatory comments already.

        The every day guy is tired of being manipulated and lied to by everyone from politicians to the MSM. This is the only way to get voices heard and have the impact felt by a large organization like a CNN. Let’s see how this plays out.

          A ton of Journalists are piling on as well.

      Blackmail is a felony. CNN’s KFile needs to be indicted.

    I would post links but they’re all over the internet already let alone what it will be like over the rest of the week. Not tired of winning.

  • I didn’t think it was possible for me to hate CNN more than I already did.

    • Drunk_by_Noon

      I now believe that God himself has picked Trump to save the world.
      Is there any other explanation for why his enemies are getting smited left, right, and sideways.
      It’s as if anyone who attacks Trump suddenly becomes cursed and worse happens to them.

  • #CNNBlackmail trending on the tweeter.

    • WalterBannon

      would like to see indictment of CNN’s Kfile for blackmail trending at DOJ

      • Assange says CNN broke the law & posted excerpt on tweeter.

  • CNN picked a fight with a gay 15 year old on the 4th of July over free speech.

    • lolwut? (Deplorable Hoser)

      No, KFILE is a CNN employee and former Buzzfeed reporter named Andrew Kaczynski

    As The Instapundit says: “CNN has chosen the form of its Destructor. A million @4chan guys”

    Looks like James O’Keefe’s further revelations are going to be redundant.

  • xavier

    Screw CNN they doxx me and I’d nuke them with a civil action for a billion dollars.

    So CNN is now a mafia shaking down citizen for protection money in the form of doxxing

  • Jay Currie

    Ok…Popcorn, check. Beer, but of course…But I am thinking I need to stock up on hot dogs, steaks and other forms of sustenance as we watch the tsunami hit CNN. They’ve already doxed Wolf Blitzer. And wait for the porn.

    Brilliant.

    Never kick a 15 year old kid over a meme when he is a Reddit Editor. It never goes well.

    • Editor

      And now 4chan is pissed. It took them mere hours to identify Eric “Bikelock” Clanton, this should be good. Deploy the weaponized autism ! !

  • QiPo

    Hey, pour me another cup of bitter uncle Joe! Nothing like a steamy froth of justification for the party line. At least the digital gulag is not fatal. However, every time a citizen is impaled over freedom of speech, this nation dies a little. I know that is what the Comintern always want, but may not deserve.

  • Manual Paleologos

    It is time to DOX Crappy News Network. DOX their president, all the board members, and every VP and corporate officer. Publish their names, photos, addresses, phone numbers, e-mail addresses, names and photos of their children and their routes to school.

    Make the bastards sweat.

    • Drunk_by_Noon

      And last night they did that, sort of.
      They published some of their onAir “talent” home addresses.

  • Malcolm Y

    Link to 4chan seems to be dead.
