Soviet tactics and the Totalatarian left on twitter

Have you ever won­dered why the left always seemed to take the side of the total­i­tar­ian states dur­ing the cold war. Well look at what’s hap­pen­ing on twit­ter and won­der no more:

Last night Twitchy reported that lib­er­als had launched an assault on con­ser­v­a­tive Twit­ter users, report­ing them as spam to trig­ger account sus­pen­sions and renew­ing their abuse of the flag-​spam fea­ture when con­ser­v­a­tive accounts were reinstated.

You can usu­ally tell spam when it comes, you look at the account, it 0 – 10 fol­low­ers and tweets out the same link to dif­fer­ent folks hop­ing you will click on it (they also as a rule have an image of an attrac­tive lady but I digress) Our friends on the left after see­ing con­ser­v­a­tives on twit­ter beat them time and time again have decided to abuse the report­ing sys­tem to shut down debate:

the Left has begun orga­niz­ing stalker mobs to falsely report con­ser­v­a­tives for “spam”/”abuse,” in order to silence the Right on Twit­ter. Why?

Silenc­ing oppo­si­tion is the Left’s only hope for success.

If con­ser­v­a­tives are per­mit­ted a fair chance to cri­tique the Left’s agenda, to expose the Left’s tac­tics and demon­strate the fail­ure of the Left’s poli­cies, the Left loses. Not con­tent to dom­i­nate acad­e­mia, pub­lic schools, the enter­tain­ment indus­try, book pub­lish­ing and the main­stream news media — all of which cul­tural insti­tu­tions are char­ac­ter­ized by an over­whelm­ing lib­eral hege­mony — the Left is now deter­mined to silence con­ser­v­a­tive oppo­si­tion in the few bas­tions of free­dom that remain: Talk radio, cable TV and the Internet.

Ed Mor­ris­sey notes the real win­ners will be the spam­mers:

Here’s the prob­lem. There actu­ally is a ton of spam on Twit­ter, usu­ally trig­gered by key words picked up by auto­bot searches. In the ideal model — and one that had been work­ing fairly well until now — legit­i­mate Twit­ter users would report the spam, and Twit­ter would sus­pend the accounts. That keeps traf­fic mov­ing smoothly (a per­for­mance level that Twit­ter occa­sion­ally fails to main­tain any­way) and dis­in­cen­tivizes spam­mers, at least to some extent. Now that the Left is abus­ing the spam mech­a­nism, Twit­ter will almost cer­tainly have to sus­pend its use, which means the only peo­ple who will win this game are the spam­mers, and we’ll have no way to deal with the flood of annoy­ing mar­ket­ing messages.

Gee, thanks, pro­gres­sive activists!

This has been picked up by the Wash­ing­ton times Bre​it​bart​.com and is at the top of mem­o­ran­dum.

I find the most inter­est­ing that not a week ear­lier I was writ­ing about low tac­tics being used against the Lonely Con­ser­v­a­tive and Zilla of the Resis­tance as well. What still amazes me is how these peo­ple are so will­ing to do this openly.

If Twit­ter is play­ing along with this non­sense it might even be action­able. I won­der what will hap­pen if our sides lawyers start con­tact­ing Twit­ter and the peo­ple doing this. It would be.…interesting.

As the truth of the left’s prospects in this elec­tion become more appar­ent expect more of this because the bot­tom line is our friends on the left can’t com­pete in the mar­ket place of ideas so they want to shut it down. These are the tac­tics of the Soviet Union, Cuba and Com­mu­nists through­out his­tory afraid of the voice of the peo­ple and the prospect of them hear­ing any mes­sage other than their own. It’s the tac­tic of fear and that means one thing:


Ride Right Through them, they’re demor­al­ized as Hell!

Final thought, is this yet another exam­ple of the left act­ing like Fed­ual types? Can’t com­pete, instead of bet­ter argu­ments, send in the thugs.

Update: Just One Minute reminds us these tac­tics might seem famil­iar to pro-​Clinton blog­gers who had inter­est­ing google blog prob­lems dur­ing their pri­mary against a cer­tain Illi­nois Sen­a­tor in 2008.

Have you ever wondered why the left always seemed to take the side of the totalitarian states during the cold war. Well look at what’s happening on twitter and wonder no more:

Last night Twitchy reported that liberals had launched an assault on conservative Twitter users, reporting them as spam to trigger account suspensions and renewing their abuse of the flag-spam feature when conservative accounts were reinstated.

You can usually tell spam when it comes, you look at the account, it 0-10 followers and tweets out the same link to different folks hoping you will click on it (they also as a rule have an image of an attractive lady but I digress) Our friends on the left after seeing conservatives on twitter beat them time and time again have decided to abuse the reporting system to shut down debate:

the Left has begun organizing stalker mobs to falsely report conservatives for “spam”/”abuse,” in order to silence the Right on Twitter. Why?

Silencing opposition is the Left’s only hope for success.

If conservatives are permitted a fair chance to critique the Left’s agenda, to expose the Left’s tactics and demonstrate the failure of the Left’s policies, the Left loses. Not content to dominate academia, public schools, the entertainment industry, book publishing and the mainstream news media — all of which cultural institutions are characterized by an overwhelming liberal hegemony — the Left is now determined to silence conservative opposition in the few bastions of freedom that remain: Talk radio, cable TV and the Internet.

Ed Morrissey notes the real winners will be the spammers:

Here’s the problem. There actually is a ton of spam on Twitter, usually triggered by key words picked up by autobot searches. In the ideal model — and one that had been working fairly well until now — legitimate Twitter users would report the spam, and Twitter would suspend the accounts. That keeps traffic moving smoothly (a performance level that Twitter occasionally fails to maintain anyway) and disincentivizes spammers, at least to some extent. Now that the Left is abusing the spam mechanism, Twitter will almost certainly have to suspend its use, which means the only people who will win this game are the spammers, and we’ll have no way to deal with the flood of annoying marketing messages.

Gee, thanks, progressive activists!

This has been picked up by the Washington times Breitbart.com and is at the top of memorandum.

I find the most interesting that not a week earlier I was writing about low tactics being used against the Lonely Conservative and Zilla of the Resistance as well. What still amazes me is how these people are so willing to do this openly.

If Twitter is playing along with this nonsense it might even be actionable. I wonder what will happen if our sides lawyers start contacting Twitter and the people doing this. It would be….interesting.

As the truth of the left’s prospects in this election become more apparent expect more of this because the bottom line is our friends on the left can’t compete in the market place of ideas so they want to shut it down. These are the tactics of the Soviet Union, Cuba and Communists throughout history afraid of the voice of the people and the prospect of them hearing any message other than their own. It’s the tactic of fear and that means one thing:


Ride Right Through them, they’re demoralized as Hell!

Final thought, is this yet another example of the left acting like Fedual types? Can’t compete, instead of better arguments, send in the thugs.

Update: Just One Minute reminds us these tactics might seem familiar to pro-Clinton bloggers who had interesting google blog problems during their primary against a certain Illinois Senator in 2008.
