Apparently Compartmentalization Isn’t An Option

It would seem that the Twitter saga has expanded to Reddit, which is a social news aggregation and etc. The focus shifted from President Trump’s tweeting of a doctored Wrestlemania match of Trump V CNN and have been asserted as: not presidential, inciting violence against media, and etc. The saga expanded to Reddit through CNN believing that it located the source of the doctored match.

The Reddit user who initially claimed credit for President Donald Trump’s tweet that showed Trump tackling CNN issued an apology Tuesday for the video and other offensive content he posted — one day after CNN identified the man behind the account and attempted to make contact with him.

Reddit user “HanA**holeSolo” first shared the GIF last Wednesday of Trump pummeling a wrestler with CNN’s logo imposed on his face. CNN could find no earlier instance of the GIF

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.

“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.
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.

The CNN commentator took issue with the people from all sides of the political aisle taking the side of the Reddit user, who goes by the pseudonym “HanAssholeSolo,” and argued he didn’t deserve any sympathy due to his past “anti-semitic racist, and anti-gay” posts. She also said that big news outlets revealing the names of anonymous internet users would not “destroy” the doxxed.

Don’t lecture me on free speech. I wrote a book abt it. CNN cannot infringe on 1st amendment …only govt can

… few minutes to figure out that HanAssholeSolo, the person behind President Donald Trump’s most retweeted tweet, had also used racial slurs and posted derogatory comments about Muslims. Then, there was the one that caused all the problems: a thread titled “Something Strange About CNN…can’t quite put my finger on it…,” with a graphic of dozens of the network’s talents with tiny blue Stars of David.

Shared more than 300,000 times, and the subject of debate over whether it inspired violence against the media, HanAssholeSolo’s animated GIF reengineered Trump’s 2007 WrestleMania appearance into a living, breathing political cartoon in which the ostensible leader of the free world clotheslined a man with the CNN logo for a face and then proceeded to beat him with his fists. Allies argued it was a joke and all in good fun, but the post I uncovered painted it in a new, more sinister, light.

My reporting on the Stars of David meme quickly went viral…

I returned to the Reddit forum where HanAssholeSolo had been posting, a subreddit called The_Donald in which extreme supporters of the president rail against the “MSM,” or the mainstream media, and journalists like myself. They’d already spun my outing of their confederate as part of the larger conspiracy against them and the man they call “God Emperor.” By following their posting histories, I found plenty of mentions of that civil war, as well as subreddits like Physical_Removal that focused on “removing” problematic members of the media and liberals.

The white nationalists, white supremacists and neo-Nazis menacing Sexton are “not just emboldened, but empowered by this administration,” said Sexton, a New York Times contributor and Georgia Southern University creative writing professor.

“They take their cues from the President,” he added. “There’s a reason they’re all talking about CNN right now — because this is media he’s focused on for the last couple of weeks.”

The Reddit troll taking credit for President Trump’s CNN smackdown clip has “a consistent record of racism, anti-Semitism and bigotry,” the Anti-Defamation League charged Monday.

… Still, they didn’t actually doxx him, although this may have only been decided after he gave an apology, which is much more likely a product of the possibility of him being doxxed than out of any grand change of mind and heart.

It’s at this point where I have to call a halt to that and step in with my own opinion. He is the progenitor of a what is now going down in the National Archives as a Presidential Statement (no matter how unpresidented it may be), and as such I am very much of the opinion that not only should the Reddit space from whence it came be known about, but also the person who created the GIF – the real person behind the screen name even. Hell, isn’t this what the Right wants, acknowledgement of their views, of their lack of shits to give? Shouldn’t he have been jumping for joy of his reach of his internet fame, and perhaps even chance to go beyond the platform that is Reddit? But he doesn’t do any of that, he doesn’t double down on it like Donald Trump would have, and instead he backs down by apologizing. How very facetious, how betrayed his fellow clickservatives must feel that he went the way of Kathy Griffin! Though, now that I think about it, aren’t his compatriots who are now all screaming “BLACKMAIL!”, going that way, when Kathy Griffin played the victim card after her apology? This, in my mind, is just as insincere.

No, if they were truly as proud of what they stand for – including HanAssholeSolo – they would’ve welcomed being doxxed, being exposed. They would wear their red trucker hats, wave Kekistan flags and scream MAGA unto their sworn enemies the Fake News Media and the Libtards without any form of apology. They would also have the balls to admit that actions have consequences, and spawning a Presidential Statement certainly does that. Instead he does apologize, afraid of whatever consequences doxxing hold, and stirs a whirlwind of outrage that is honestly nothing more than hot air.

(Bold emphasis mine)

Lets take another look at doxx.

… It will also determine if you get that new job you’ve had your eye on.

According to a new survey released by Challenger Gray, as increasingly more social media platforms become popular, job seekers continue to expand their online footprints, creating and building multiple profiles. And, as a result, the overwhelming majority of job recruiters are turning to the internet as a means of ensuring that potential job candidates are a good fit for their companies.

In the survey, conducted in April and May among 300 recruiters in a variety of industries nationwide, nearly 80 percent of recruiters indicated that they use some type of internet or social media search as a means to vet or learn more about candidates, and 76 percent check these sites before they initially contact the candidate.

“There are ways to use social media advantageously during a job search. The first step is to delete any tasteless or controversial posts, and then to leave or create ones that show passions, hobbies, or professional accomplishments,” said Challenger. “Candidates who are less comfortable with recruiters checking in on their social media should make sure that they have checked their privacy settings, and that they understand how these settings work. On Facebook, for example, profile pictures are always public, even to people who are not connected, which means that it is important that this picture is appropriate,” he added.

“Employers want to hire workers who can adapt to the changing technologies used in business. If they cannot find anything about you online, it could indicate that you are clueless about these emerging technologies or tentative to learn them.”

What I keep reading amounts to: With the Reddit author’s associations, his esteem of Trump, Trump’s tweet as national archive, public records, and compilation of works also known as a anthropology justifies his being threatened with doxx or otherwise ‘wasn’t he doing it for fame/acknowledgement?’ in which the above effects or ramifications at minimum would be deserved.

There is another issue that national archive, public records, compilation, and etc applies including the detail variation of esteem or denouncement of Trump relates (for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction).

http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2017/jul/5/panel-americans-no-right-information-privacy/

President Trump’s voting integrity commission fired back at critics Wednesday, saying the Supreme Court has never recognized a constitutional right to “informational privacy” that would prevent the panel from collecting and studying voter registration data from all 50 states.

Mr. Kobach last week asked states to provide names, addresses, partial Social Security numbers, voter history, military status and prior felony convictions.

Because the Commission has only requested public information from the states, EPIC could never show that a constitutional right to informational privacy – even if it were to exist – has been violated,” the lawyers said.

 (Bold emphasis mine)

It would seem that CNN and other outlets have become too distracted with the feud to note the issue applies to precisely to this issue. If associations, compiled data as previous works, national archives, and public records justify utilizing doxx on a private citizen the argument and questions apply.

… Personally, I am far more concerned with guilty until proven innocent justice system practices that includes utilizing criminal statistics of demographics to demographically profile criminality-terrorism codified into law after 9/11 being emboldened by utilizing guilty until proven innocent and guilty by association.

I’m very interested in contrary points of view that can articulate how precisely the past precedent of one cannot by a governmental commission then argue in the other?
