My phone started ringing about once per hour yesterday. It’s still ringing about once per hour. I have anonymous (no pun intended) calls blocked, so I’m probably just catching the tip of the prank phone call iceberg. It turns out that the antifa decided to masquerade as “Anonymous” and declare that they’ve “hacked” the “klan” and are going to “dox” all sorts of famous and important people.
In lieu of famous or important people affiliated with any klans, they’ve evidently settled on doxing me, Matt Parrott. I’m not sure if it counts as doxing when the correct information is my public phone number and the private information about my address and family is incorrect. I haven’t lived at Golfview Drive in Carmel for nearly five years, but somebody ordered $333 worth of Papa John’s pizza to the address yesterday evening. Ironically, the rank strangers living at that address, the owner of that pizza parlor, the pizza parlor employees, and the hapless delivery driver, are all non-White, so Anonymous managed to harass and harm more minorities in one single night than I’ve done in my life.
My entry has a rather mean-spirited inclusion of my alleged mother, Sandra. Sandra is some random lady in North Carolina who is emphatically not my mother, and most likely not a right-wing political dissident. For that matter, my actual mother isn’t a political dissident, either. You can’t pick your family, after all. Aside from buying me my first computer and subscribing to dial-up Internet, she played no role whatsoever in my political awakening and wishes I would find a hobby that doesn’t involve being habitually harassed by Internet heroes.
And my entry is, surprisingly enough, one of the more accurate ones in their clusterfucked attempt to recapture the initiative from an identitarian movement which is rapidly growing while their own subculture’s been deeply demoralized and disoriented. While I am not in and have never been in a klan, I am actually a pro-White activist, which is more than can be said of the majority of the entries.
Many of the names are identifiably non-racialist and even openly anti-racist. Connie Chastain, for instance, has been an object of scorn within our circles for years because she believes Southern heritage is compatible with multiculturalism. And that’s not the only friendly fire incident. Hal Turner is a confirmed federal informant whose radio show existed as a honey pot set up in partnership with the FBI to entrap right-wingers with incendiary rhetoric.
Willis Carto and Gordon Baum are deceased.
There’s some confusion about which list is definitive, or whether the “real” list has even been released, yet. That’s the double-edged sword of anonymous vigilantism. With no identifiable or accountable command structure, a horde of self-styled revolutionaries and an impressive number of mainstream news outlets are harassing random people right and left. I had one caller try a stalkerish shtick of claiming he was outside my house. I had one threaten to attack Sandra (poor, sweet, random Sandra). Most just insulted me then hung up.
Unlike Anita Sarkeesian, I won’t be invited to speak to the United Nations about the harassment I receive for my own controversial political views. The last time I had any dealings with law enforcement, when the antifa threw a brick through a restaurant we hosted meetings at several years ago, the cops were more curious about me than they were about the people attacking me. The bottom line for me, one which Sarkeesian and pals would do well to consider, is that these shenanigans are the “new normal” for anybody who engages controversial issues.
Suck it up, or sit down. Even if they threaten to, ummm…presented without further comment…
Being the target of such a campaign isn’t exactly fun, but it’s an unavoidable side effect of Internet freedom and anonymity, both of which are valuable enough to offset the inconvenience of being pranked. While the Left is exploiting the Internet to indulge in this sort of pointless and destructive faggotry, we’re leveraging those same tools to network, organize, and reach new audiences with our positive message of faith, family, and folk.
Besides, it wasn’t all negative. We got some love from our Latino and Latin American comrades. ¡Viva Cristo Rey!
