CNN Blackmails Reddit User Over Trump Wrestling Video, Threatens To Expose Identity

Originally published at iBankCoin.com,

CNN is taking heat for threatening to publish the identity of a private citizen who posted a video lampooning the network.

Redditor 'HanAssholeSolo' is credited as the creator of a clip showing President Trump beating up a man with a CNN logo superimposed over his face, which the President then tweeted on Sunday morning.

 

In response, CNN and it's MSM brethren caught the vapors - with pundits accusing the President of inciting violence against journalists. CNN media reporter Brian Stelter tweeted this screed:

 

While the White House has said the video didn't come from Reddit, CNN's Andrew Kaczynski went on a deep dive, uncovering now-deleted posts from 'HanAssholeSolo' which the network deemed offensive. CNN decided not to publish the the user's personal details, for now, because HanAssholeSolo has 'showed his remorse' for the 'offending posts' and 'ugly behavior' - effectively threatening to expose a private citizen if he doesn't stay in line.

 

Apology

HanAssholeSolo issued an apology on Reddit Tuesday, calling the video a "prank, nothing more."

“The meme was created purely as satire, it was not meant to be a call to violence against CNN or any other news affiliation... ...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.”

Here's what people thought about that:

 

Meanwhile, CNN's Andrew Kaczynski has said that people are misinterpreting the article.

 

Sure Andrew... CNN isn't publishing his name "because he is a private citizen" who "showed remorse," yet you reserve the right to expose his identity if you don't like how he behaves in the future. Sounds like a threat.

How did they find him?

While CNN maintains they were able to link HanAssholeSolo's posts to his Facebook account, a 4chan user claiming to be a CNN insider, suggested that CNN obtained his IP address from his ISP and 'unmasked' him.

 

EPIC REACTIONS

CNN's latest blunder follows a devastating week for the network, whose last shred of credibility was destroyed in a blaze of glory by James O'Keefe last week. Reactions to the network's threat to expose (or 'Dox') Redditor HanAssholeSolo have been hilarious... you can see for yourself by searching the hashtag #CNNBlackMail on Twitter.

 

Finally - 4chan has declared WAR

 

This should go well for CNN

The CNN grave has been dug.  Just waiting for the terminally ill network to be taken off life support.

4 Chan is saying that the Redditor was a 15 year old kid. That makes the intimidation by CNN even worse.

CNN has become a caricature of a real news agency...sort of like a gif.  Maybe they should utlize all their resources to hunt themselves down and force an apology.  They could threaten to out themselves for being idiots.  Oops.  Too late...

Assange also noted that this is a Class A misdemeanor "coercion" under NY state law. A crime that is punishable by 15-365 days in jail.

CNN is now officially a criminal organization.

If it is found that CNN colluded with Time Warner Cable to violate the privacy of a minor child, AOL Time Warner should be broken up.

As it is, everyone should BOYCOTT TIME WARNER CABLE as they have shown that they do not respect your privacy one whit.

Amazing the childish anger over a satirical video found on the Internet and blamed for somebody else due to adverse outcomes.
Sounds exactly like why Benghazi happened, right?

These phucks are supposed to be reporters ... as in dig in and find what the Truth is.

Nice job CNN.

Mrs K turned it on yesterday after all the brew-hah for entertainment purposes only.
Fucking retards

And they wonder why things are getting bad.  And even then in fact blame right wing news (a la NBC)

The real question everyone is ignoring is "Why do jews hate being called jews or being outed as jews?".

 

If you have nothing to hide....and other cliches like that.

WTF is your point? This kid did nothing but point out that an overproportionate amount of Jews are present in the organisation. Why is it wrong to point this out? 

NidStyles's picture

His point, like everyone that supports the Jew stories, is that Jews are thus magically above reproach, because of said stories.

First, credit to ZEROPOINTNOW for this article coming from DR. FLY'S blog, iBankCoin.com.

Second, as a poster on iBankCoin suggested, let's keep a running list of all of CNN's advertisers (I know, we must watch that shit show to create the list) and post the list here.  What each of us does about it is our individual choice but I personally will avoid giving their advertisers any of my money.

Honest question, how is it that pointing out 'Whiteness' with scorn and hate has been raised to the level of a fuckin' sacrament on college campuses and by 'diversity officers' across not just the US but the West... **even when** they are scarcely over-represented...

But it is CRIMETHINK to note the **wild over-representation** of Jews?

I submit to you that 'Jewish privilege' exists and that a pillar of that privilege/power is to be able to obfuscate and preserve that power via censorship. Direct censorship and dissuasive... you will be accused of 'hating Jews' in the same way you will be lauded for decrying 'Whiteness'... which distills to ethnic Europeans and by extension Christians.

Take this Haaretz story:

http://www.haaretz.com/us-news/1.799112?v=402BA8873631FFB1E5E007CB8AB4066B

The reddit user didnt necessarily create that CNN jews meme - I believe thats been around for quite a while

https://img.4plebs.org/boards/pol/image/1495/29/1495294425808.jpg

On the other hand consider (and I dont endorse the site but the image references a ny times story):

http://nationalvanguard.org/wp-content/uploads/2016/02/Hollywood.jpg

Its okay for the Jewish owned and controlled NY Times to list with pics to show 19 of the top 20 hollywood execs are 'White'... BUT THEY LEFT OUT THAT 15 OF THE 19 *ARE JEWS*... Jews are 'White' only where it serves to obfuscate their power and advance anti-European narratives. But if 4 out of 20 are non-Jewish Whites...for the most part meaning EUROPEAN AMERICANS- then its clear that they are very under-represented while Jews are incredibly, artificially over-repped.

Yet the 'story' (which is designed to obfuscate and preserve Jewish power and privilege) is always about how X is 'too White' which requires 'diversity' which affects European-Americans but never Jews.

There's a real double standard here, and it is effectively about attacking 'Whites' (Europeans) while keeping much greater disproportionate Jewish power out of bounds... but that disproportionate power in media, govt/foreign policy has a great impact on all of us, and should be subject to **honest and fair** discussion.
>>>>>>

"Why are Jews statistically over-represented? There are essentially two possibilities:

1.  Jews could be acquiring positions of power and then using them to grant favors to other Jews—say, Jews could take over the senior administrative positions in Ivy League colleges (where they indeed compose about 75% of the total), and then they could favor admitting Jews as new students over others.

2. Perhaps Jews are simply more intelligent, or industrious, or intellectual, or otherwise have temperaments more conducive to these arenas—and so they acquire their status in these positions through legitimate success.
The first of these options is the white supremacist answer: Jews aren’t any more intelligent than the rest of us; they’re just more nepotistic, networking with other Jews to take over the world. In order to avoid sounding like bigots, then, we’re supposed to give the second answer: Jews are simply more intelligent or more industrious or more intellectual, or simply have temperaments more conducive to these arenas.

But if we’re talking about whites instead of Jews, then suddenly the first option is exactly what social justice warriors demand that we say: ‘whites aren’t any more intelligent than anyone else; they’re just more nepotistic’! Meanwhile, the second option is suddenly the one that is now inexcusably, irredeemably racist: if you claim that whites are simply more intelligent or more industrious or more intellectual, you’re a bigot.

What the ‘politically correct’ view requires us to say about Jews is exactly what it calls bigotry if we say it about whites. And what it requires us to say about whites is exactly what it calls bigotry if we say it about Jews. The disproportionate success of whites is purely the result of unjust ‘privilege’, and you’re a bigot if you think it has anything to do with greater merit. But the disproportionate success of Jews is the result of greater merit, and you’re a bigot if you try to diminish that by attributing it to ‘privilege’, much less want it to change!"

Yes, it is an excellent post.

The concentration of a particular group - or "over representation" is not a problem, all by itself. Smarter, like-minds seeking company, etc is not necessarily a problem. It can be a benefit. You don't want to dilute a productive group with a lot of bums.

The question is whether the group has a purpose that affects others in an inappropriate way. A common philosophy is important to maintain a community.

In what ways do we agree? How much can we disagree and still be a viable group?

Why all of the focus on Jews? Is it rational? They are 1% of the US population and a tiny, global dot on the map. They cannot possibly be as super-powerful as purported by many on the internet.

Because of their small numbers, they cannot be taking a huge portion of the jobs in an underemployed county, getting on welfare to make the low wages palatable, and lowering wages for citizens who can't do that. Nor are they committing one terrorist act after another.

Regardless of how you feel about any of those issues, individuals have a right to express themselves, anonymously if they choose, without being bullied by the power brokers at CNN or the other MSM networks. It makes it especially David v/s Goliath-like for the Failing Media Giants to go after a 15 year old.

But all of them went against Trump in the same way -- Goliath style -- not just CNN and not just the liberal media. Trump mostly had friends on the internet, and yet, the MSM cannot understand why he would rather be online.

@Endgame

CNN went after this person because of a meme that shows how most of their leaderships staff are Jews. An amount so obvious and striking that there are likely diversity laws broken to boot. Unfortunately CNN can only pretend to be outraged over the wrestling meme unless they want to answer the question "why they are so over misrepresented at CNN?"

Don't want to startle the goy.

I think that was his point. They are only 1%, but completely over-represented in the media and government.

I made the comment that if you want to see some real outrage from the media, just mention the words dual-citizens in this thread.

My comment has been removed......and my point proven.  

EDIT:  I WAS WRONG.  I later found my comment further down the thread, but it does not change the fact that no dual citizen should hold public office, nor should they be in any position that requires a security clearance.  If you can't understand the concept of conflicting loyalties, just tell your wife or girlfriend that you wnt a dual relationship.  She can explain it to you.

There is zero evidence for there ever have been a single Jew killed in a gas-chamber anywhere. Not even the Red-Cross says any were killed in a gas-chamber. Although we have millions of accounts and incidents that prove the people promoting the myth of gas-chambers are bold faced liars.

Anyone could have made that video.  Trump was on WWE with Vince McMahon in 2007.  The tape is readily available in

its archives.  Cutting and pasting a CNN sticker on Vince McMahon's head area is doable by any elementary school student.

Whats the big deal?

 

Go to you tube and watch the whole episode.  Its hilarious.   Trump ends up cutting off all of Vince Mcmahon's (CNN) hair and

shaving his head bald as part of their bet. Someone please paste the CNN logo on McMahon's head while Trump is removing his hair and

let it go viral.  Trump 'scalping' CNN.

HanAssholeSolo made an incredible work.  He posted Star of Davids on all the hierarchy of CNN.  THAT FUCKING PISSED off Mossad.

I posted a link last night if it isn't already in the newsfeed.  Is there a clear link from Israel into American politics through CNN (right under everyone's noses)? 

Here is what I posted last night (to repeat myself)

Anyone see the latest work from HanAssholeSolo?  He did the Trump/CNN video that got CNN up in a bother (https://www.everipedia.com/hanassholesolo/).  His newest work is the hierchy of CNN.  It should piss off CNN even more.

Mega-thanks for the link.

 

I avoid US TeeVee, but recently had chanced upon one "Anthony Bourdain" show, and the guy impressed me as one stinking, self-obsessed piece of shit.

 

And there he was!  Right on the CNN roster.  

 

Maybe there's a pattern here.

The meme they were upset about was not the wrestling one, but the one that explored the ethnocultural (and political) background of CNN's President, Chief Strategy Officer, Vice President, Executive VPs, Chief Political Anchor, Chief Political Correspondent,  Sr. Legal Analyst...

https://imgoat.com/uploads/ea9ab1baa0/28483.jpg

If you are too lazy to click the link, I'll give you a hint, its not a very diverse group, and there are many dual citizens in the list...

Snípéir_Ag_Obair's picture

So... the CNN guy who, ostensibly, threatened to blackmail the reddit guy (and this wasnt about the wrestling gif, it was about the mene showing CNN is incredibly disproportionately Jewish... CRIMETHINK because it makes one wonder the impact this has on their propaganda... hating a guy because hes jewish is wrong, suspecting a jew who worked for aipac might be inclined to lie about Iran... is common sense)

Anyway, his wife, were she not Jewish, might be deemed a supporter of 'domestic terrorism'

By the way, and I've said on 4chan before, the assinine pepe/nazi shit might be funny as an exercise in trolling, but its going to taint anything they do.

CNN can say 'alt right nazis' are attacking the 'free press' in orwellian fashion as always, and that's all people will see.

And the reason why nazis were and are awful cunts (which is not to say history is not written by the victors) their embrace of authoritarian statism, violence, and collective punishment etc.

There can be real, non-statist, anti-violence, anti-bullshit critiques of Israel and Jewish power/influence, and granting that you'll be called a nazi regardless, actually using nazi symbols, 'as a joke' to vex normies or not, isnt clever, is counter-productive, and makes legitimate discussion even less possible.

If you want to see some real anger, ask about dual citizens, and why they should be allowed in government, or any place requiring a security clearance.

There should be an amendment preventing dual citizens from holding public office and security clearance positions. Nothing antisemetic about it. Same goes for socialists and communists.
