Jim Hoft is ON THE CASE!
Jim Hoft is ON THE CASE!

Jim Hoft of The Gateway Pundit, The Stupidest Man On The Internet, was thrilled to report Tuesday night that Buzzfeed, CNN and our very own government GOT PUNKED! Totally punked you guys! Because they all believed the dossier on Trump (the one with the pee hookers) came from an MI6 agent… when in fact, it came from 4chan!

Yes, according to Jim Hoft, this is FAKE NEWS! And everyone but the clever Jim Hoft done fell for it! The fools!

Hoft writes:

According to 4Chan these documents were created by a 4Chan user and sent to anti-Trumper Rick Wilson knowing he would act on this tip:

4Chan discussed this tonight:

** Political hacks emailed documents to #NeverTrump jackass Rick Wilson about Trump making people piss on a bed.
** Rick Wilson thought it was real and gave it to leftists at the CIA
** The CIA of the USA put this in their official classified intelligence report on Russian involvement in the US election
** Donald Trump and Obama were both given private sessions with the CIA to discuss this.
** The CIA concluded that the Russians plan to blackmail Trump with this story we made up

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:

so4kpbmrp2hufuxpip36

So they took what I told Rick Wilson and added a Russian spy angle to it.

They still believe it. Guys, they’re truly fucking desperate – there’s no remaining Trump scandal that’s credible.

Oh, gee, yeah, that is some real incontrovertible proof there, Hoft/4chan! Some totally random 4chan user invented a fake intelligence dossier 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 also thought it was totally real, because how would the CIA have any way of vetting information randomly thought up by a 4chan troll, and then people from the CIA gave it to the press so they could hurt Donald Trump with it right before his inauguration. Yes, that seems like a real thing that might happen in real life!

Wilson responded to the 4chan theory on Medium this morning, denying he was Buzzfeed’s source and explaining why the 4chan theory could not possibly be true — because these were things that were being talked about far before November 1st of this year:

… [A]s regards the British memo run in BuzzFeed, I release ANY journalist I’ve talked to about Trump from any off-the-record/background protections of anonymity. Why? Because the first time I saw the memo was when BuzzFeed published it. I’ve never had possession of that memo, never shared it, never pitched it, and never requested or caused others to do so. Allegations from the memo were making the rounds in the IC, political, and media worlds, to be sure, but its origins are elsewhere. […]

If you believe the Russian/4chan spin that this information came from them, you can’t use a calendar, or common sense. This information on Trump’s various personal and business dealings in Russia was being pursued by major campaigns and by major media to my knowledge as early as late July of 2015, and the “Ritz Carlton” information was out in the summer of 2016.

Whoops!

And, if you don’t want to take Wilson’s word for it, there is always the fact that David Corn of Mother Jones published an article about the dossier on October 31st, a day before that 4chan thread happened. Whoops again! For that matter, alleged ties between Trump foreign policy adviser Carter Page and the Russian government surfaced in the media in late September 2016, so those 4chan guys really need to get their time machine adjusted.

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, when in every instance that they’ve tried, they’ve been found out within hours. Remember that time they tried to convince the world that Twitter feminists were trying to #EndFathersDay because we just like, really hate men? Or the time they tried to threaten to release nude pictures of Emma Watson if she wouldn’t stop talking about feminism?

The number one rule of 4chan is to never, ever take 4chan seriously.

This is not to say they can’t be dangerous; they absolutely can be. Christopher Harper-Mercer, best known for shooting up Umpqua Community College in Oregon, was an /r9k/ user who announced his intent to kill on 4chan before going through with it. They also invented the Pizzagate conspiracy theory, which was believed by an unfortunate number of people, including the guy who shot up the pizza place in Washington, and also the son of Donald Trump’s national security advisor, Michael Flynn. (And maybe even Flynn himself!)

Many of them, in fact, see the entire election of Donald Trump as a successful troll on our country. However, by and large, they are mostly bored idiots (or, as they say, “NEETS,” meaning Not in Education, Employment or Training”) 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.”

So … we’d wish Jim Hoft better luck next time, but he’s the Stupidest Man On The Internet, so we won’t be keeping our hopes up about “next time.”

        Cally, is this true? Is Hoft a Steelers fan? You’ve met him, iirc.

        • Wild Cat

          Never met him, but I swear he looks like another sick fuck, Glen Groth.

          Oh, Christ, I hope not. My hometown team has enough problems FFS.

            He says he’s from here. No amount of legitimate proof will stop us from denying it.

    Has Hoft’s mother told him he shouldn’t pose for photos with his cum on his palm?

    Well, what 4chan’s problem is that they had such *lousy* parents who ignored or hit them a lot, that they’ll do *anything* for attention, and even negative attention is better than being… wait for the horror… IGNORED.

  • Vincent Ricola

    I am stunned that people buy the shit 4chin peddles. It’s not like some new, shadow organization no one had ever heard of that appeared out of nowhere to troll for Trump. Their history goes back at least a decade, which translates to centuries in internet time. It’s always been lying for the lulz.

    Jim Hoft is truly the stupidest man on the internet.

    I demand to see the documentation that Jim Hoft is the Stupidest Man on the Internet. There’s a shitload of competitors for that title.

    • Pisciatoiojohn

      It’s a consensus that has formed over many years.

      • exinkwretch

        I get Jimbo confused with another contender, that ginger fuckwit the Trumpies allegedly hired to vet job candidates. I can’t remember his name, but it should be “ginger fuckwit.”

        • Yr. Gma

          Chuck Fuck.

      Perhaps we can display a six foot high pile of papers on a long table at our next press conference.

    • Well, Hoft hasn’t gotten hired by the Trump team. And they hired Chuck C. Johnson. So that at least gives you a threshold.

  • Martini Ambassador

    Now, if 4chan could only change the Google results for “stupidest man on the Internet,” Hoft might be on to something there.

      Trump’s team has made available inaugural merchandise that includes lapel pins, pint glasses, coffee mugs, buttons, koozies, T-shirts, hats, sweatshirts, tote bags and fleece blankets.

      Supporters can enter to win a trip to D.C. for the inauguration by contributing a minimum of $3 before January 13.

      Just in case anyone thought he would wait until after being inaugurated to pimp out the White House.

          Not sure how they’re going to make that “softly sensual,” but I’m appropriately terrified at the prospect.

            You don’t think “Stars and Stripes Forever” is softly sensual?

    Received this today from everylibrary.org

    Coalitions get things done in politics and in society. This work is as important to us as winning elections for individual libraries. It is a key step in putting our 2017 Agenda into action.

    We are realistic but ambitious in our goals. Our coalition work will focus on our role as the only national political actions committee for libraries, on the role the libraries we support have in their communities, and on the people libraries serve. Our areas of concern include:
    Voter Rights and Ballot Access
    Money in Politics
    Protections for Public Sector Workers and Pension Reform
    Civil Society and Teaching Civics
    Economic Freedom and Prosperity
    Media Literacy
    Literacy, Education, and Lifelong Learning
    Information Access and Freedom of Information
    Net Neutrality and the FCC
    Federal and State Budgets and Regulations
    First Sale, Copyright, and DCMA Reform

    Please take a moment to read through our reasons and approach.

          After Eisenhower… if they’re a Reptilian candidate for President, and win, they’ve committed treason (Nixon – screwing with the ‘Nam peace talks, Bush, Sr., arms for hostages, and please hang on to the hostages until we win, Iranian revolutionaries?; Bush, Jr… and now this….), and are all in it for the money, and to screw the rest of the world.

    There is a critical divergence regarding the James Bond movie franchise.

    Some people only like the Sean Connery movies. Some people think the Daniel Craig version of Bond sux.

    But can’t we at least agree that Jim Hoft would make an excellent target for 007 to chase in the next one?

    • Jenny

      He’s too stupid to be a bond bad guy. I mean really, who would find the guy with his dick stuck in his zipper, in a back alley, intimidating?

      • Begin Anew Day

        Movies do not start with scripts, they start with a vision.

        And my vision includes this clown on his knees, begging, while 007 trains a big load of votes on his feeble ass.

    • Mavenmaven

      That would be the shortest chase scene in history.

      • Begin Anew Day

        That would cut the film’s production time down quite a bit. $$$$$$$ saved!

        And who can argue that the ending wouldn’t be great?

    I saw this showing up on Wilson’s tl this morning (he can be funny and is nasty enough to the alt-reich). They were vowing to see him sued for defamation of character …

    • jenny_whyme

      He’s funny.. I rarely agree with him… but I have a hard time believing he’s totally evil.

      • Pierre_de_Fermat

        Same here. I usually disagree with him on policy and with others in his group. But they are fighting the good fight and seem to be trying to recover “Republican” and “conservative” from the outright loons. Where we can work together, we need to. This is life in the minority but it does not mean we loose all the battles. And yeah, he is funny (and considering he seems to be constantly getting moronic messages from the alt-reich, that would be hard to keep up).

        • jenny_whyme

          He got more than moronic messages.. he (and his family) faced harassment from those people. Somewhere are around the time after Rubio dropped out of the race and he started pushing hard with #NeverTrump.

          • Pierre_de_Fermat

            It appears all the #NeverTrump folks did. Most soldiered on – a few endorsing HRC (usually reluctantly -Tom Nichols, though certainly some were very much for her). Wilson went for McMullin.
            With their hero looking like a Russian plant, the Trump Cult are finding new ways to love Vlad — the new “White Tsar” (last looked for in the Balkan Wars).

          … then again, its pretty ugly the place that they inhabit… Unless you go to the anime section… Maybe. If your interest is some sense of mental hygiene, you’re not missing much.

    I wish we could come up with another word for them besides troll, since they are so gleefully proud to finally have a tribe.
    Sycophant is all that’s coming to mind right now, but that’s not the right word. I realize we have many many words (the best words!) for them, but some kind of smart word that they would have to look up but still wouldn’t understand would seem a propos.

    • WhiskeyTangoFoxtrot

      I’m with you. Troll is too nice a word for them. I like, malefactor-A person who commits a crime or other wrong.

      • alpacapunchbowl

        I like that one!

      • CatCafe de la Resistance

        They’d probably take pride in that. I’d go for something more reductive and ineffective. Limpdicks?
        ETA: someone below called Trump supporters pansies. I vote for pathetic pansies.

      • Lain Iwakura

        Honestly though, what crime did they commit? Last I checked, being annoying or mean, fooling people into idiotic moral panics, and lying on the internet, are by and large not crimes.

        • WhiskeyTangoFoxtrot

          Everything you’ve defended is based on lying to others for your own personal gratification. That’s wrong and, in many cases, criminal. I get hyperbole and going for the joke, but outright lying is a no go.

          • Lain Iwakura

            Lying on the internet (unless its made to defame someone and affect some real individuals real life fortunes, or commit fraud) is legal. Distasteful and evil, but legal none the less. There are few laws meant to enforce any sense of honesty on “The Wired”.

          • WhiskeyTangoFoxtrot

            Wrong’s wrong. Doesn’t matter if it’s legal. A malefactor is not defined by just being a criminal, a malefactor is also someone who willing commits wrongful acts. Legality does not remove the ethical obligation to behave decently. Society is built on our ethical conduct and the malefactors we’re talking about don’t seem to understand that.

          • Lain Iwakura

            But, It kind of does matter if its legal, in its own way. After all, the law also has a punitative function. Though the legality of it may not change the fact that something is unethical, or that one might have an obligation (to society, in all our best interests, I suppose) to behave ethically, without any actual consequences (aka: punishment) for wrongful action it may as well not be a rule that has to be lived out. And In the end, we seem to not be able to strongly enforce such a thing for fear of running afoul of destroying rights (that they admittedly, sort of abuse).

            (And I generally, but not totally, accept that Society is built on ethical conduct… But thats just me being a little messed up in the head)

          • WhiskeyTangoFoxtrot

            Interesting discussion. I think that the law defines the minimum acceptable behavior for our society, something we all (or at least most of us) can agree is bad and should not be allowed. That leaves plenty of room for bad, but legal, behavior. Lying is one of those things. If it rises to a certain level it’s illegal. But most people still think lying for personal gain or gratification is bad, maybe not “throw them in jail” bad, but still bad. That means it’s up to us to condemn it in an effort to stop it from happening. I will not normalize or accept what I consider bad behavior. The trolls on 4chan are malefactors.

    • PussyGrabbinRussianPatsy

  • CatCafe de la Resistance

    It’s kind of like ISIS taking credit for every bombing, isn’t it? 4chan and the other trolls trying to discredit news reports by insisting THEY started it?

    • Lain Iwakura

      Except, in 4-chans case, they did start it. For kicks and giggles nonetheless, but they started it. They are the Modern day and real life Lain Iwakura, goddess of the Wired.

      • CatCafe de la Resistance

        But apparently, they didn’t. That’s what’s so perverse about it. They’re trying to insinuate that actual news is fake news, by insisting that they faked it. It’s almost clever.

        • Lain Iwakura

          No, they made it up. You have no idea how far they’d go for laughs.

          • CatCafe de la Resistance

            Oh, I do.

        • Lain Iwakura

          I upvoted you because I sense that I’m going to take it all back in the near future. My epiphany was going to reddit and seeing a user talk about r/conspiracy, and expressing disappointment with the fact that they fail to accept things when an actual conspiracy breaks out.

    And all the confusion and nonsense swirling around these very real misdeeds and lies will obscure the means and the ends. It’ll go away just like pussy-grab and McCain is no hero and watch me mock a disabled reporter it’s so funny and I can shoot somebody on 5th Ave., and on and on. We are in very deep trouble.
