4Chan Pranks, #cutting4Bieber and #rememberAddison, Make the News

This is actually news, if you can believe it. I had written this, then thought better of it, and decided not to publish it, until I saw it was on Drudge.

The hashtag #Cut4Bieber began trending, suggesting that dedicated Beliebers engage in self-harm through cutting themselves in order to get Justin's attention in response to his recent alleged bad boy behavior.

"Lets start a cut yourself for bieber campaign," an anonymous user initially wrote before the thread was deleted, according to Billboard. "Tweet a bunch of pics of people cutting themselves and claim we did it because bieber was smoking weed. See if we can get some little girls to cut themselves."

Justin Bieber apparently got caught smoking weed, so 4chan created an astroturf prank wherein they claimed that girls were cutting themselves (CONTENT WARNING)in order to convince Bieber that weed is bad. The content warning is for imagery of cuts on girls' arms. Some of these pictures may be fake, but others, I'm guessing, are just lifted off the internet, and are thus real cutting pictures, but falsely claimed to be part of this #cutting4Bieber hoax.

I believe this one is transparently fake, though, so a lesser content warning on this one.

As a follow-up hoax, they then conspired to claim that their rivals "9gag" had actually started the hoax, and shame on them, because, they further claimed, an impressionable young girl had in fact attempted to cut herself in order to encourage Bieber to stop smoking so much weed, and had died as a result of this.

None of this is true, you understand: They're continuing to make things up. But they started a hashtag #rememberAddison (Addison supposedly being this Biebercidal girl's name) and a whole faked-up internet trail to give her existence credibility, like a YouTube channel and MySpace page and her "brother" starting a "Remember Addison" facebook page and so on.

I wasn't going to post this because it wound up occasioning Too Much Thinking about what is funny, and what other people find funny.

I find it darkly funny, rather than cruel, but only because I make the following assumptions:

1) They weren't really serious about trying to get girls to cut4Bieber.

2) The idea of someone actually cutting4Bieber is so outlandish, so absurd, and so unlikely to actually happen, that it seems harmless.

3) The actual object of the joke -- that is, the person you laugh at the end -- isn't girls who love Bieber (well, secondarily, maybe) but rather people generally, and their willingness to believe all sorts of things.

If you don't share those assumptions, then this will seem more sinister.

On 3, I thought about that some, and thought about the media and the public being part of an unwitting symbiotic relationship on things like this: The public wants to be distracted, and the media wants to write easy, distracting pieces.

I suppose I'm okay with all of this just because I don't think there was (much) evil intent beyond poking fun at people for being so gullible, and because I think it's unlikely someone would start cutting4Bieber just to let him know "Weed is bad 4 you," as one fake tweet explained. Some girls cut themselves, but... I doubt they cut themselves because they saw it on Twitter, or to let Justin Bieber know about the long-term consequences of marijuana use.

On the other hand, anyone with daughters, I imagine, will feel very protective about them, and will see very little humor in this.

See? That's why I didn't publish it. Because opinions will sharply vary depending on one's own situation and point-of-view, and it's hard to say that someone who feels a natural protectiveness about young girls is "just wrong!!!!" and should "lighten up!!!" I can't say that -- they're not "wrong." They just have a different background and situation which causes them, naturally, to react differently to the same stimulus. And that's why I wasn't going to post.

But it's on Drudge, so it's news, and I've now spent 30 minutes writing this crap, so I guess I have to publish it.

Thanks to @slublog.

So nancy boy got caught toking and the gag is that tween girls are cutting themselves to show that smoking weed is bad? Do you have to be high to get why that would even remotely make sense?

I mean, I'm not a comedic guy, but doesn't a good gag have to have some element of believability to it? You have suck the people in before you drop the hammer. Did anyone actually buy into this?

I believe BuzzFeed originally published it as a "real thing" then rewrote the story to note it was a hoax.

Which is what I mean about the desire of the media (if I may dignify buzzfeed momentarily by calling them "media) to write easy, thought-free stories that will push people's buttons and distract them, and this all works because people secretly wish to have their buttons pushed and be distracted.

104 BSR,

That is pretty funny!! And thanks to all and any morans that called Illinois poilticians to try and stop that crazy gun bill they were trying to jam through in the lame duck session.

NO MORE GUN CONTROL, it does nothing. If we guard our money and politicans with those evil guns, is it not the least we can do to guard our children, our treasures with arms as well?????

Marco Rubio-Tom Cotton 2016!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

No LiB, let's stand up and fight for this country for fuck's sake. And I leave you with one hell of a quotation:

In a fiery speech on August 1, 1776, Samuel Adams bellowed, "If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom -- go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen!"

107 Oddly, in another window I'm having discussion with my friend about whether to stop identifying with Geek Culture or not.

To the extent that 4Chan is a part of this, (marginally, but still at the margins) I wonder if it will inform my decision.
(FWIW, what's mostly driving the decision is a long tiredness of the constant heckling and speech chilling that goes in that culture against anything that upsets their strange worldview. A few recent, admittedly small, events have set me off, but yeah. "Civilized discussion, NO! Chase them off, YES!")

123 I wouldn't even say buzzfeed or anyone in the media "fell" for it per se. I'd say rather they have large incentives to push out stuff like this whether it's true or not, because it becomes clickable and all that crap.

Sometimes I do that with things that I'm not certain are true but which seem too interesting not to post. (I almost always wind up slightly embarrassed when I do this, as commenters immediately demonstrate to me how completely false the thing is.)

But for the media generally, they actually have a strong incentive to push out the nonsense, get the hits, and then write a tiny correction the next day.

Here's a synopsis of what happens to one of these "beautiful people" during their pathetic lives (in no particular order):

1. Appear on the "scene"
2. Make a movie/cut a record/find fame
3. Have multiple opposite sex partners
4. Have one or multiple same sex "partners" - "trying to find themselves sexually"
5. Pulled over by LAPD/NYPD for DUI/DWI multiple times
6. Video of them using drugs
7. Sex tape finds its way to the internet
8. Celeb goes to rehab multiple times
9. Female celeb has child/children out of wedlock
10. Multiple visits by law enforcement for domestic abuse
11. Entertainment "career" goes down the tubes doe to above behavior
12. Problems with the IRS
13. Celeb ends up on slab at Coroner's office

Screw the "beautiful people".... bunch of HS drop out "thespians"

The bolded is where I think this goes from stupid internet hoax to something more malicious. Sure, maybe the majority of the 4chan fools weren't looking for anyone to actually injure themselves but at least one jackass was gonna get his or her jollies if some little girl actually did cut.

189 The Drudge-InfoWars links are getting much stronger with the Alex Jones push.

I'm always unsure how crazy Alex Jones is. My assumption is he's sane but just trying to get rich off the paranoid fears of crazy people. He's too calculating to be crazy.

I have no doubt if Romney had won Alex Jones would be screaming about FoxNews and Mormon conspiracies.

Certain paranoid ideas work regardless of the party in charge -- vaccine and pysch med paranoia -- but others work much better against Dems or Repubs. Jones turns on a dime depending on if he's ranting against the right or left.

Of course, one aspect of delusional paranoids is they believe in all conspiracy theories -- even when they contradict each other.

I don't think this one was so unbelievable, as long as you don't know the source.

Too many girls (and some boys) cut themselves.

Too many girls (and some boys) are obsessed withtiny Beebs.

Is the intersection of thosetwo groups large? Dunno, but I believe it exists. Now, the specific motivating factor, that this intersection is cutting to try to force JB to stop smoking weed. Eh, not so believable. But then again, the obsession so many girls have with JB is pretty unbelievable to me too. I mean the boy drives around in Fiskers and Ferraris. He has more money than most of us combined, and more access to poon of all ages than most of us combined.

232 Flatbush,

Alex Jones missed a huge opportunity. Piers asked how many gun murders in America (roughly 11k). Then how many in Britain (only 39 or something).

But Alex Jones couldn't deal with this statistic. Here is where you pounce. So, Piers, is your argument that more access to guns leads to more murders?

And then you bring in the elephant in the room of switzerland, 3rd highest gun ownership per capital in the WORLD and inquire about the murder rate.

So, it's not the access or prevalence to guns that cause murder, nor is it even the scary "assault" nature since a lot of swiss guns are the evil "weapons of war".

It is easy to depants these idiots, and Alex Jones missed a big opportunity and allowed Piers' false point to go unchallenged. Plus he failed to state that UK now has a violent crime rate high than South Africa, its cops now carry guns, and they have criminal gangs using guns to commit crimes everywhere.

Awesome.

They thing being anonymous gives them the power to do this, and they get a kick out if.
So yeah, if #1 isn't true (i.e. if they did intend to get at least one person to buy into it) then it is cruel.
I suspect that part 2 of scam only began when the "media" picked it up first (and since being caught as a farce would happen eventually they jumped tracks and decided to further troll the media rather than keep trying to troll (pre-)teen girls.

Congress in the 90s(?) authorized the Treasury to mint precious metal coins. Since they've already done silver and gold, the thought is that a platinum coin would be unique; it's value would be based on its stamped value and not based upon the value of the metal is possessed.

Why platinum?


There's a law authorizing Treasury to mint platinum coins.

Minting a trillion dollar platinum coin probably (hopefully) wouldn't pass constitutional muster though.

289 So the script for Torture's Handmaiden is:

Bieber is being pursued by all kinds of raving fans. These fans will be played by Selena Gomez, Kate Upton, and Taylor Swift. Plus a few others including Honey Boo Boo.

So Bieber flees the country and lands in Istanbul. Where he finds his limo not waiting. So he is kidnapped by white slavers who mistake him for a white girl. So he gets sold to an out of the way rich man who thinks of himself as being descended from Ottoman nobility.

And Beiber finds himself in a harem to be educated in being a proper lady of the harem. His trainer is Didem who discovers his secret and becomes his protector.

Then after long months of acting like a girl in harem training; Selena Gomez, Kate Upton, and Taylor Swift track him down. So they dress up all in black and do a ninja raid to rescue Justin from the harem. Whereupon the #1 lady of the harem, played by Christina Hendricks, captures them all.

That is all I have off the top of my head. Feel free to expand.

I think the morons would love the shit out of that scene. lol

406 Okay, what I understand is a trillion dollar platinum coin struck by the Treasury Dept. would be deposited at the Fed in exchange for Federal Reserve notes. Unlike the Fed buying and selling Treasury paper to create Federal Reserve notes (dollars), which takes place in a public market open to transactions from private parties, this coin stunt creates dollars completely divorced from market demands, which makes assessing risk on this hunk of a trillion very difficult and potentially raises interest rates on debt related to this money, and we can't afford any rate spikes with our addiction to borrowing. Sorry, I can't explain this very well. The guys at the Jan. 7 Coffee and Markets podcast do a better job.

Bieber fans are not believably going to be the type of kids who are prone to cutting themselves. Now, if you started a meme about emo kids or goth twats cutting themselves because they found out Hot Topic was owned by Bain Capital, then you've got something on the edge of believe able and wryly amusing.

Because it's behavior you expect, but for unexpected reasons. But try to explain funny to the pasty, childish virgins at 4chan.

Dude, the world is now filled with vacuous idiots who feel the need to share every insignificant thought no matter how banal.

Both the Right and the Left have devolved into social halves based upon Unthink. Where they no longer reason but merely accept the social arguments put forth by unknown and unqualified strangers.

It isn't the Zombie plague we need to worry about it is the modern plague of ignorance and falsely elevated ideology. The kneejerk reactionism which harms both friend and foe alike, because the majority have stopped reasoning and in fact refuse to use the common sense god gave to Goats.

George Carlin nailed it. And his observation extends far beyond voting and politics.

I don't vote. Two reasons. First of all it's meaningless; this country was bought and sold a long time ago. The shit they shovel around every 4 years *pfff* doesn't mean a fucking thing. Secondly, I believe if you vote, you have no right to complain. People like to twist that around – they say, 'If you don't vote, you have no right to complain', but where's the logic in that? If you vote and you elect dishonest, incompetent people into office who screw everything up, you are responsible for what they have done. You caused the problem; you voted them in; you have no right to complain. I, on the other hand, who did not vote, who in fact did not even leave the house on election day, am in no way responsible for what these people have done and have every right to complain about the mess you created that I had nothing to do with.”


“The next time they give you all that civic bullshit about voting, keep in mind that Hitler was elected in a full, free democratic election”"Now, there's one thing you might have noticed I don't complain about: politicians. Everybody complains about politicians. Everybody says they suck. Well, where do people think these politicians come from? They don't fall out of the sky. They don't pass through a membrane from another reality. They come from American parents and American families, American homes, American schools, American churches, American businesses and American universities, and they are elected by American citizens. This is the best we can do folks. This is what we have to offer. It's what our system produces: Garbage in, garbage out. If you have selfish, ignorant citizens, you're going to get selfish, ignorant leaders. Term limits ain't going to do any good; you're just going to end up with a brand new bunch of selfish, ignorant Americans. So, maybe, maybe, maybe, it's not the politicians who suck. Maybe something else sucks around here... like, the public. Yeah, the public sucks. There's a nice campaign slogan for somebody: 'The Public Sucks. Fuck Hope.'"


"I have solved this political dilemma in a very direct way: I don't vote. On Election Day, I stay home. I firmly believe that if you vote, you have no right to complain. Now, some people like to twist that around. They say, 'If you don't vote, you have no right to complain,' but where's the logic in that? If you vote, and you elect dishonest, incompetent politicians, and they get into office and screw everything up, you are responsible for what they have done. You voted them in. You caused the problem. You have no right to complain. I, on the other hand, who did not vote -- who did not even leave the house on Election Day -- am in no way responsible for that these politicians have done and have every right to complain about the mess that you created."

Sven, I know pessimism is fun, certianly funnier. And I know at the federal level it looks bleak. But just look at Texas. Texas is going like gangbusters. Other states are booming too. And they are doing it through conservatism. The country will never be as conservative as I want it, but it never was. Things will not always be like this. We are winning some battles. Its not all lost.

I think it will too, but it usually has to be born of blood and hardship first which I'm not too certain anyone is excited for. There are so many leftist striations streaking through the core of society right now, especially with the "millenials" that I don't see people learning about conservatism and just accepting it. I think it will have to be a necessary way of being, if that makes sense.

I agreee. Each generation experiences a difficult trial in this country. They just experience it at different times. Maybe we are experiencing it now. Maybe we will experience it in 5 - 20 years and it will be a result of what we have done for the past 10. I don't know. But I agree. As Rush says, conservatism isn't easy. Liberalism is easy. Conservatism is hard. It is not the norm. It must be learned the hard way. But it is always learned.

I'm guessing you don't visit 4chan much, they're middle aged douchebags who get off on hurting kids and girls. They're favorite things to do are "dox" kids and girls, put their personal info online and harass them, the younger the better as far as they're concerned, they're scumbags.

It's not actually going to be 1 trillion dollars worth of platinum. That wouldn't be quite as silly. But what's the point? Where are they going to get a trillion dollars worth of platinum apart from borrowing another trillion dollars to buy it?

They're going to mint a coin with $6,000.00 worth of platinum (or something like that) and label it as a trillion dollar coin. Basically they're just looking for excuses to print money.

504 sven10077,

I know. And there are logical consequences to that. All of them predicted by conservative philosophy. Fist comes federal insolvency. Either we learn then ad cut spending, or more likely, we try to tax or inflate out way out of it. With either high taxes or high inflation, we have extreme economic turmoil. It will happen eventually. Hopefully, it will be about that time we learn better, but if not, there is always lawlessness, rioting and perhaps foreign invasion to look forward to. Or maybe the disbanding of the union. We can hope for the latter, but if not, then the takers destroy the makers, and eventually die out themselves.

Yeah, sure, the country dies...but conservatism lives on. And that is really what is important; standing amid the ashes and saying "I told you so" to your annoying lefty neighbor.

I live in Texas, i keep telling people that they if they think illegal immigration and people moving here from blue states isn't affecting our politics they're whistling past the graveyard. All the major cities in Texas were solid R in the 80's, now they're all solid D. Just like in states like Pennsylvania it doesn't matter how conservative the rest of the state is, if the major cities vote D eventually it'll be too much for the rural R population to overcome.

People who already know the news is full of bullshit will continue knowing it. People who want to look smart and skeptical will say "See, the news is full of bullshit" then go on believing the rest of the news. Reporters will continue lying and being lied through freely and smugly. And people who can't believe the news is all bullshit, because in some way it's their friend, they'll find a way to get mad at whoever had the idea for the prank.

It proves Freud right. But no one believes it when Freud is proven right.

511 Can't believe Ace missed the possibility that the 4Channers are trying to get marijuana accepted as more mainstream. Think about it...if they create an urban legend/fake scare about kids cutting themselves to get a celebrity to stop using marijuana, they create a belief among younger people that those who are against marijuana are so extreme that they will harm themselves for their cause. That kind of thing is how you change cultural attitudes, and it's genius.

Posted by: MadisonConservative at January 08, 2013 05:05 PM (sb+ta)

512 2) The idea of someone actually cutting4Bieber is so outlandish, so
