Buzzfeed, CNN and to some extent our very own government GOT PUNKED! Totally punked as they all jumped on the dossier on Trump (the one with the pee hookers) they believed came from an MI6 agent… when in fact, it came from the internet group 4Chan.
According to 4Chan some documents were created by a 4Chan user and sent to anti-Trumper Rick Wilson knowing he would act on this tip. Posing as friendly foreign intelligence, they emailed documents to #NeverTrump Wilson. 4chan backs up its story that it was a hoax created by one of its users with a link to a post from November 1st.
Some totally random 4chan user invented fake intelligence with a crazy story about Donald Trump paying for pee hookers and gave it to GOP strategist Rick Wilson, who then gave it to the CIA, who then gave it to the press so they could embarrass Trump with it right before his inauguration.
You see, the thing a lot of people don't understand about 4chan is that they're not “sources of intelligence.” They're internet trolls, and the purest definition thereof. They want chaos, and they want reactions. They're the somewhat grown-up version of the boy sitting behind you putting gum in your hair and getting excited over you getting upset. They want people to think that they can create elaborate and believable hoaxes, but sometime they've been found out within hours.
In the past they've convinced the world that Twitter feminists were trying to #EndFathersDay because they just really hate men? Or the time they convinced radical feminists to #PissForEquality and Pee on Thyself campaign to show support. The number one rule of 4chan is to never, ever take 4chan seriously.
Many of them, in fact, see the entire election of Donald Trump as a successful troll on our country. By and large, they are mostly bored idiots with so little going on in their lives that their only joy and amusement comes from the jolt of power they get from a successful troll. They do it, as they say, “for the lulz.”
