Nationalists Explode On Social Media

There is a new study out which shows that nationalists and other groups the SPLC dislikes are reaching a large audience on social media:

“A study released this week shows that engagement by hate groups on social media has been booming in the last two to three years —and the largest shares of activity are focused on anti-immigrant and anti-Muslim sentiment.

The study titled “Hate on Social Media: A Look at Hate Groups and Their Twitter Presence” was conducted by, an organization of home security experts that conducts research aimed at making communities safer. The study used data collected by the Southern Poverty Law Center, a non-profit based in Montgomery, Ala., that tracks hate groups nationwide. …

Heidi Beirich, who heads the Southern Poverty Law Center’s Intelligence Project, which logs hate group data, said she was “not surprised” at the timing of the increases in hate group engagement on social media nor was she surprised by the geography. Beirich said President Trump’s campaign promoted anti-immigrant and anti-Muslim sentiment, with promises to build a wall blocking off Mexico and the recent travel ban targeting Muslims. She also said the SPLC’s data shows hate group concentrations in the South, so that did not surprise her either.”

Until recently, I didn’t have much interest in social media. I signed up as @occdissent on Twitter in 2010 but neglected my outpost there for years. I’ve never used Facebook much because of the censorship and its tendency toward shit stirring and infighting. In 2010, I called for systematic discourse poisoning by White Nationalists on Reddit, but I personally never followed up with it.

I’ve changed my view. Instead of spending an hour a day engaged in discourse poisoning on Reddit, we need to be doing it for hours across multiple platforms like Twitter and YouTube. We also need to be cultivating our networks on alternative social media platforms like Gab and Voat. I credit the shitlords and troll armies for reawakening my interest in social media in 2015 and 2016. They were pathbreakers in illustrating the efficacy of meme warfare and trolling on social media.

In the long run, we will be able to launch comprehensive attacks on the Narrative across multiple social media platforms: WordPress, YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, Periscope, Gab, etc. The holy grail of social media is the point when we will be able to effectively create our own television network. Essentially, we can already do this with Periscope, YouTube and Facebook Live which allows anyone to broadcast live video to their followers, but imagine the influence we could have with a nationalist primetime lineup.

I credit the Alt-Lite brands for causing me to rethink everything I have been doing here. I’m only at the very beginning of the process and still don’t know much about the subject. Look at Infowars not for its content but as a model of what we should be doing. They have a very slick understanding of social media and marketing and have used it to tap into an Alt-Right audience.

Note: So far, @occdissent has made 4.32 million impressions in February. That is down from the 5.29 million impressions I made in January. I’ve been more active on OD this month though. Impressions are the number of times a user is served a tweet in a timeline or search results. To put this in perspective, @occdissent only had 122K impressions in June 2015.

  • Good Point, Hunter…….

    Trolling, Meme Warfare, and attacking Leftist Narratives through Social Media……

    ….is HIGHLY useful and effective………

    It spreads the Message like a Virus…….

    Everyone can contribute to spreading this Message and fighting the Left……

  • Did faceberg for a year, decided it was an evil waste of time. Did tweeter for the election cycle, got great satisfaction out of constant reinforcment from likeminded individuals. But again noticed it being a great evil drain on my life force. Im an addict at heart so I try watching my habits. A few comments here and there fromtime to time and hope I can eek out my living until retirement and no evil librul zombie kills me or my family.
    Investing my time and money in ammo, raising food and securing my water supply.
    Praise jesus.

    • Tried Twitter a few times with different identities and I barely last one day, it is such a hateful place, a truly horrible environment for any intelligent discourse because of the stupid characters rule. All memes and insults, that platform will die, I think this Disqus platform is actually pretty great, it seems to be a cross between Reddit and Twitter, I like what you are saying there about watching how you spend your time, and being wary of evil drains on your life force, nice to dip a toe in here and there and keep fighting the good fight when time permits.

  • If you ever get demoralized, go to the SPLC blog and read their comments.

    I love to complain about the low quality of comments on White blogs, but in comparison we have it pretty good.

    You get a skewed sense from the media – the best of our opponents are given mainstream media coverage while the worst of our advocates are given mainstream media coverage.

    But when things are equal – like online – we are ahead of the curve.

  • I don’t do twitter and once a long time ago I had a FaceBook account for a day which I considered just too much of a hassle; plus I didn’t really like the format because it was so intrusive in a Big Brother kind of way.
    But I have made good use of trolling YouTube news channels such as Fox, which normally I can’t really stand for all the NeoCon shillery. Ruptly live is a good place to troll also because of the wide international participation of Nationalists from all over Europe and Russia.
    I feel it’s kind of a duty to go a-redpillin’ whenever I see some commentary that needs that needs to be embellished with some vital well sourced article or historical screed. One can post links as long as you take out the dots between the dot coms, dot orgs and dot html-s which I never hesitate to do.
    It’s not unusual for a disinfo troll to disappear after a short time of info bombing. Also, I find many allies and connect with some well educated and aware trollers.
    It’s good sport.

    • Good job, Ken. Whenever I read an antiWhite article online or look at an antiWhite video I am uplifted and encouraged by the proWhite and altRight comments of people like you. I always think “God bless that person”. The work we do online on Twitter, in comment sections, in all social media is extremely powerful. People are searching for a true alternative to leftism and cucked conservatism and they are finding it in the altRight, thanks to the armies of volunteer commenters who show up online every day.

  • This is great news. Let’s hope this movement will only grow in the future until we can have our countries back. What unites us is not hate, but solidarity and love of our race and culture. The true haters are SPLC and SJWs.
