Not necessarily. What kind of person engages in time intensive disinformation campaigns and manipulation directed at leftists and radicals? Pays for and sets up a site to do it on? Maybe a very board and very sad individual with disposable income. Or maybe someone motivated by more sinister things...

I mean, so far we just know of the alts and behavior they were pressured into admitting to. What about the things the people pressuring them don't even know about? The things ziq is lying about and keeping from them.

Given what we know so far, why take it at face value that ziq isn't lying and manipulating emma too and doesn't have more up their sleeve.

it is very disappointing. She plays a fed who infiltrates an anarchist terror cell, and the portrayal of the anarchists in the movies is very bothersome to watch. It isn't just that it is a negative portrayal -- I could understand and expect that. It is that it is a nonsensical one based on false cartoonish stereotypes and baseless anti-anarchist propaganda.

The main thing is that the anarchists are portrayed as being overly entitled spoiled rich kids who are just mad because their daddy didn't love them enough -- but, personally, the next time I meet an actual anarchist who is rich will be the first time.

I never have because it always made me feel like I was wearing an anarchi-uniform.

I'm real open that I'm an anarchist though, and people in my family, work and life are all very accepting of it. But I've always been something of an eccentric, so I think people are just like, well, that's grackles for ya.

Oh, Cool user name...

I disagree with the assessment, but some of the reasons Ive seen people say that is because primitivists are opposed to the technological and industrial systems that some people rely on -- they thus get called ableist since people with certain needs think primitivists are fine with them dying sue to lack of the tech they depend on. And then Ive seen some trans people accuse them of being anti trans because they depend on medical and pharmaceuticals that they think primitivists would get rid of.

Again I disagree with that but people ive argued with thats what they said.

There was a guy doing this that the cops got caught framing a while back. Dude was known for doing this, cops come hassle him for it, he films them, they detain him and confiscate his camera and then go and collude on how to frame him up on something. Problem for them was that they didn't turn the camera off and it recorded them planning and colluding on arresting and charging the guy for things he didn't do.

Guy went to jail and it took him years to get the charges cleared even though he had the recording of them colluding on framing him. As far as I know nothing even happened to the cops.

And now think of all the times they get away with that kind of shit. It is inexcusable really that cops aren't killed everyday. I'm ashamed for not having killed any cops yet and think we all should be embarrassed by our own inaction in that regards.
