Exclusive: Two Interviews with RSMcCain on #freestacy DOS Attacks & #DripDripDrip

A few days ago after he was banned from Twit­ter but before his @sextroubleaccount I talked to RS McCain about what his going on with him.
We talked about the pos­si­bil­ity that this was part of an elec­tion year strategy:

“Now you’ve seen how this shadow ban­ning where search results are being sup­pressed. It looks very much like they’re try­ing to tilt the play­ing field in an elec­tion year when Hillary Clin­ton is the pre­sumed nom­i­nee and fem­i­nists have the thumb on one of the most pow­er­ful social media plat­forms in the world”

He com­pared it to other loss lead­ers for the left:

It’s like salon​.com it’s been los­ing over a mil a year for 20 years and yet the “investors” are will­ing to do it because it pro­motes a “pro­gres­sive” message

He told me that he didn’t find out about his ini­tial ban­ning until he saw a tweet talk­ing about it (I only noticed when my @rsmccain feed wouldn’t load in tweetdeck)

He chal­lenged twit­ter to show a screen cap of his threat­en­ing or abus­ing any­one while not­ing that his @sextroubebook account has picked up over 2000 fol­low­ers in just under 24 hours.

Of course 24 hours later that account was banned too.

I also asked him about how this would be received. As it was a pri­mary week­end he noted all the polit­i­cal reporters are cov­er­ing pol­i­tics but won­dered about their lack of interest

peo­ple know my num­ber and know peo­ple who will get it and you’d think peo­ple would call

And per­haps Twit­ter fig­ured that after a few days every­one would for­get the #freestacy business.

But when I talked to him less than an hour ago (I’m typ­ing this as 9:55 AM Thurs­day) there were two devel­op­ments the most sig­nif­i­cant being Denial of Ser­vice attacks against his site which were launched today:

when I work up this morn­ing this was going on and it’s intermittent.

He noted the irony in terms of “who is being harassed here”

It’s Ironic that I’m accused of tar­geted abuse while peo­ple respon­si­ble for shut­ting me down are not con­tent with hav­ing my twit­ter account wiped off the face of the earth are attack­ing my site

he referred to the tac­tics used against him as DARVO which stands for: Deny, Attack reverse vic­tim , Offender and noted how famil­iar this all seems:

Deal­ing with these peo­ple is like deal­ing with Kim­ber­lin, he’s a known sociopath and when you get into a con­flict with a sociopath they begin to manip­u­late the story they become the vic­tim and you become the vil­lain for try­ing to tell the story about them. You keep telling the truth. Who is being tar­geted for abuse?

It’s all a ques­tion of media bias and unlike folks like me who have their back­ground in stuff like tech (Hence DaT­e­chGuy) media is some­thing Stacy knows as this is his 30th year in the business.

This is the 30th anniver­sary of my first job as a $4.50 staff right Austell Geor­gia in cobb county Austell News-​Chronicle owned by a local busi­ness­man named Lamar.

Iron­i­cally Stacy told me Mr. Lamar started his news­pa­per because he was sick of what he was see­ing from the local weekly, so in a sense Stacy McCain cut his teeth on alter­nate media and media bias:

It’s like media bias every­body has their own opin­ion on it but nobody asks me even though I’m in the business.

How­ever the 2nd devel­op­ment is the story start­ing to get out there. In addi­tion to calls from me he’s been con­tacted by Buz­zfeed: “their piece is pre­dictable left” and Debra Saun­ders who got some minor facts wrong:

“I didn’t out a trans­gen­der. It wasn’t a secret that “Sarah” was trans­gen­der, Her attacks on 4chan caused peo­ple to ask ‘Who is Sarah Butts?’ which caused them to find out who he was…If it hadn’t been for Nyberg’s attempt to silence oth­ers nobody would have cared but when some­body has a com­mer­cial enter­prise online and you try to drive them out of busi­ness…

Which is what those going after Stacy McCain are doing, try­ing to silence him. Iron­i­cally he tends to do exactly the opposite:

This is them, try­ing to silence their crit­ics, I don’t do this to other peo­ple, I quote them, that’s what they hate, fem­i­nists hate to be quoted.

And now the story is start­ing to pen­e­trate the MSM (more on that later today) much in the same way that the Anthony Weiner story did, slowly like water on a rock.

Drip Drip Drip.

Fyi you can help by retweet­ing items in the #freestacy hash­tag, writ­ing your local paper, spread­ing the word on face­book and call­ing your local talk radio show. Let’s give the Twit­ter Safety crowd the atten­tion they deserve.

A few days ago after he was banned from Twitter but before his @sextroubleaccount I talked to RS McCain about what his going on with him.
We talked about the possibility that this was part of an election year strategy:  

“Now you’ve seen how this shadow banning where search results are being suppressed. It looks very much like they’re trying to tilt the playing field in an election year when Hillary Clinton is the presumed nominee and feminists have the thumb on one of the most powerful social media platforms in the world”

He compared it to other loss leaders for the left:

It’s like salon.com it’s been losing over a mil a year for 20 years and yet the “investors” are willing to do it because it promotes a “progressive” message

He told me that he didn’t find out about his initial banning until he saw a tweet talking about it (I only noticed when my @rsmccain feed wouldn’t load in tweetdeck)

He challenged twitter to show a screen cap of his threatening or abusing anyone while noting that his @sextroubebook account has picked up over 2000 followers in just under 24 hours.

Of course 24 hours later that account was banned too.

I also asked him about how this would be received.  As it was a primary weekend he noted all the political reporters are covering politics but wondered about their lack of interest

people know my number and know people who will get it and you’d think people would call

And perhaps Twitter figured that after a few days everyone would forget the #freestacy business.

But when I talked to him less than an hour ago (I’m typing this as 9:55 AM Thursday) there were two developments the most significant being Denial of Service attacks against his site which were launched today:

when I work up this morning this was going on and it’s intermittent.

He noted the irony in terms of “who is being harassed here”

It’s Ironic that I’m accused of targeted abuse while people responsible for shutting me down are not content with having my twitter account wiped off the face of the earth are attacking my site

he referred to the tactics used against him as DARVO which stands for: Deny, Attack reverse victim , Offender and noted how familiar this all seems:

Dealing with these people is like dealing with Kimberlin, he’s a known sociopath and when you get into a conflict with a sociopath they begin to manipulate the story they become the victim and you become the villain for trying to tell the story about them. You keep telling the truth. Who is being targeted for abuse?

It’s all a question of media bias and unlike folks like me who have their background in stuff like tech (Hence DaTechGuy) media is something Stacy knows as this is his 30th year in the business.

This is the 30th anniversary of my first job as a $4.50 staff right Austell Georgia in cobb county Austell News-Chronicle owned by a local businessman named Lamar.

Ironically Stacy told me Mr. Lamar started his newspaper because he was sick of what he was seeing from the local weekly, so in a sense Stacy McCain cut his teeth on alternate media and media bias:

It’s like media bias everybody has their own opinion on it but nobody asks me even though I’m in the business.

However the 2nd development is the story starting to get out there. In addition to calls from me he’s been contacted by Buzzfeed: “their piece is predictable left” and Debra Saunders who got some minor facts wrong:

“I didn’t out a transgender. It wasn’t a secret that “Sarah” was transgender, Her attacks on 4chan caused people to ask ‘Who is Sarah Butts?’ which caused them to find out who he was…If it hadn’t been for Nyberg’s attempt to silence others nobody would have cared but when somebody has a commercial enterprise online and you try to drive them out of business…

Which is what those going after Stacy McCain are doing, trying to silence him. Ironically he tends to do exactly the opposite:

This is them, trying to silence their critics, I don’t do this to other people, I quote them, that’s what they hate, feminists hate to be quoted.

And now the story is starting to penetrate the MSM (more on that later today) much in the same way that the Anthony Weiner story did, slowly like water on a rock.
