‘Libs of TikTok’ gets doxxed by Washington Post reporter who whined on MSNBC about online harassment

Share:

TWITTERVERSEWashington Post journalist Taylor Lorenz, who recently broke down in tears on MSNBC over online harassment that she has experienced, is being accused of “doxxing” the anonymous operator of a wildly popular Twitter account called Libs of TikTok.

According to Not the Bee, a news and opinion website from the creator of Babylon Bee, Lorenz and her editor, Christina Passariello, published an article on Tuesday that exposes the woman and doxxes her while harassing her and her family in the making of the story.

 

“Doxxing” describes the act of posting online the personal information of those who wish to remain anonymous.

Lorenz, the WaPo’s internet culture beat reporter and a former New York Times journalist, is being accused of hypocrisy by critics after @libsoftiktok posted a photo of Lorenz at the home of the woman’s relatives.

The Libs of TikTok is one of Twitter’s most popular accounts and is adored by conservatives, enjoying something in the range of 878,000 followers. Its posts have tens of millions of views on Twitter, Instagram and YouTube.

Libs of TikTok has become a target by the left and has even been suspended twice recently by Twitter for violating its terms of service.

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’ press secretary, Christina Pushaw, gives her take on why America’s collective left want to destroy Libs of TikTok:

 

What has enraged the left? Libs of TikTok exposes far-left hypocrisy and extreme wokeness.

Its mission is to out the unchecked, the abusive, the dangerous by reposting the offenders’ own videos. It lets their own words speak for themselves and the results are always eye-opening and often horrifying.

 

Libs of TikTok posts alarming videos that come right from the source, including the accounts of an Old Dominion University professor (who has since resigned) who appeared to downplay pedophilia and an English teacher steering students to pledge allegiance to a gay pride banner after hiding the American flag.

Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Glenn Greenwald exposed the hypocrisy of Lorenz and her supporters, tweeting:

“The same people who – just 2 weeks ago – were insisting that criticizing Taylor Lorenz is wrong because it generates ‘harassment’ toward her are now cheering as she shows up at the homes of the relatives of Twitter users to dox them.”

Conservative commentator and Daily Wire co-founder  Ben Shapiro tweeted:

“Taylor Lorenz is a terrible journalist and worse human. Targeting a Twitter account that literally just posts Leftists owning themselves because that account damages the Left is pure Lorenz.”

Lorenz defended revealing the woman’s identity by tweeting:

“Reporters make phone calls, send messages, show up places, and knock on doors when reporting out a story. I reported this story out extensively, using every tool I had, to ensure I had the correct woman.”

Lorenz claimed that the Libs of TikTok operator isn’t a private citizen who deserves the anonymity that she has guarded while enflaming the left. Lorenz tweeted that she “isn’t just some average woman with a social media account” but is instead a:

“. . .powerful influencer operating a massively impactful right wing media shaping discourse around LGBTQ+ rights.”

In an April 1 segment on MSNBC’s “Meet the Press Daily,” Lorenz revealed that online harassment last year caused her to experience severe PTSD and even contemplate suicide. Lorenz, then a reporter for The Times, said the “smear campaign” had “destroyed her life.”

During a Times interview two weeks ago, Lorenz started crying at just the idea that someone could publish another person’s private information. She said:

“You feel like any little piece of information that gets out on you will be used by the worst people on the internet to destroy your life and it’s so isolating. It’s horrifying.”

The public’s critical posts of Lorenz, the ones that gave her PTSD, started in February 2021 after Greenwald called her a journalistic tattletale for erroneously accusing Silicon Valley investor Marc Andreessen of saying “retard” during a private discussion on the Clubhouse app.

It had, in fact, been another participant in the discussion and the context was ignored by Lorenz for reasons she has not explained. The group chat was about the GameStop stock rally and the person who said the offending word had used it while explaining that some investors on Reddit call themselves the “R-word Revolution.”

Clubhouse moderator Nait Jones commented about Lorenz’s report: “this is why people block” journalists from private discussions, “because of this horse s–t dishonesty.”

There is no doubt that tweets can unleash a barrage of abusive opinions among the more sane responses. Regarding this particular squabble, New York University researchers found that tweets to Lorenz containing harmful language exploded by 144% after Greenwald’s tweet.

So Lorenz is familiar with the fear that can come with having personal information exposed online.

Not the Bee had this to say about the Libs of TikTok/Taylor Lorenz controversy:

“But it’s okay because Libs of TikTok is the enemy.

The WaPo story is absolute trash. It exposes someone against their will and opens her up to extreme danger.

Like Lorenz, LOTT has been subjected to numerous threats. Death threats are a common occurrence when one exposes the left and the creator of LOTT has every reason to now fear for her life, thanks to Taylor Lorenz.”

Doxxing is unacceptable, regardless of a victim’s or perpetrator’s political views.

From Not the Bee:

“The Washington Post has declared war on an individual private citizen. A nobody. They have printed her name, harassed her and her family, slandered her as a conspiracy theorist, and targeted her personally for attack.

Thankfully, LOTT has posted that everything is okay for now, but obviously, she’s keeping a low profile because she’s in danger.

If you’re interested in supporting LOTT, her newsletter is here, in case she ever gets officially kicked off Twitter.

The Washington Post didn’t publish this story because it’s important journalism.

They are doing it because LOTT is effective.

And they are BIG TIME scared.”

Big tech argues that conservatives are a greater threat than unhinged lunatics spouting death threats on social media

April 16, 2022

The following includes content which is editorial in nature and is the opinion of the writer. 

Social media platforms are nothing if not inconsistent in their censorship decisions.

While people such as Tucker Carlson, Dan Bongino, Steven Crowder and others have had their social media presence censored by the social media giants, others…such as the fat load who initiated a terrorist attack on a New York City subway have been allowed to spout their vile, dangerous, and threatening rhetoric unabated.

Frank James, the suspect in the subway shooting, made numerous threats of violence whereby he wished harm and expressed racial hatred, all of which was apparently ignored by YouTube, Twitter, and Facebook.

James made his first appearance in federal court Thursday, where prosecutors told the courtroom James had a “stockpile of ammunition and other dangerous items stowed in his storage unit,” NBC News reported.

James’s insane rants were “hidden” right in public, where real journalists and internet “detectives” unearthed numerous videos, memes, and other posts by the unhinged James, posted to both YouTube and Facebook, as well as linked to both via Twitter posts. Those rants continued to last week and a significant number would appear to have clearly violated terms of service for all three tech tyrants.

It appears all three platforms removed accounts tied to James after he shot 10 people and injured at least 13 others on April 12; archived versions however show some posts stayed live for over 24 hours after he was identified as a person of interest Tuesday afternoon.

Quoting from several YouTube videos posted by James prior to their removal, CNN reported that James said:

“I can say I wanted to kill people,” posted the Monday before the shootings. “I wanted to watch people die right in front of my fucking face immediately.”

“We need to see more mass shootings…to make a nigger understand,” James said in another, also posted last week.

In yet another YouTube video, which was identified by a Twitter user, James seemed to hint at an “American Auschwitz.”

Meanwhile, the New York Post quoted James as claiming to have been treated in a NYC mental health facility that practices “the kind of violence” that would make a child “go get a gun and shooting [sic] motherfuckers.”

Journalist Andy Ngo of the Post Millennial did a deep dive on James’ social media going back eight years through a tweet thread, where at the time he was going by the name “Frank Whitaker.”

“OF ALL THINGS REMEMBER THIS EVERY MOTHERFUCKER RESPECTS A GUN SHOT WOUND,” he wrote in 2015 and 2020.

“YOU M[A]Y NOT BE ABLE TO BEAT EM BUT YOU CAN SURE AS HELL SHOOTE EM,” James said in 2016 and again in 2020.

In 2020, James posted a picture showing a body in a morgue, which he called a message for “EVERYBODY WHO WANTS TO PUT ME IN MY PLACE.”

James apparently hated whites, and also railed against mixed-race relationships. In 2014, he posted an image of Michelle Obama with her hands clasped, superimposed with: “O BLACK JESUS PLEASE KILL ALL THE WHITEYS.” A 2017 video is entitled, “C.I.L.L. WHITEY.”

Yet another post to Facebook showed James posting a March 23 video where he said whites and blacks “should not have any contact with each other.” Another Facebook user documented James’ alleged social media accounts.

James also railed against Biden’s Supreme Court nominee, Ketanji Brown Jackson, literally crying over the fact that Jackson, who is black, “is married to a fucking white man.” He also posted a video whereby he called a passerby a “slant-eyed fucking piece of shit,” and a Spanish speaking individual a “crime against fucking nature.” Newsweek also reported he posted “hundreds of videos attacking black people, white people, Jewish people, and Mexican people.”

Archived versions of James’ primary YouTube account show it was removed late Wednesday morning.

Ngo identified a secondary YouTube channel run by James which had yet to be removed. The page, “profitofdoom8888” showed it gained nearly 250 subscribers in under 24 hours as of the final 8 p.m. archive on Wednesday, April 13.

It is unknown why neither Alphabet, which owns YouTube or Meta, owner of Facebook didn’t remove the post or penalize James’ accounts for violation of each entity’s terms of service, nor did they respond to requests for comment.

The failure of these platforms to lock out or otherwise punish James shows the disparity in how these tech platforms treat people with whom they disagree philosophically.

Think about this…James was allowed to post violent, hateful rhetoric on YouTube, but former President Trump’s account remains suspended. Over a year ago, YouTube’s CEO Susan Wojcicki pledged to reinstate Trump’s account when the “elevated risk of violence” subsides from the US Capitol siege, and only “when we see reduced law enforcement in capitals in the U.S. and fewer [threat] warnings.” Trump remains suspended.

Meanwhile, Facebook said the former president’s suspension will be “reviewed by experts” in January 2023, in order “to assess whether the risk to public safety has receded.” Twitter, however has said the platform has no plans to reinstate Trump at all.

Out of all social media platforms however, Twitter appears to be the worst. The most ironic thing about Twitter is they suspend accounts which engage in satire (clearly) or those which actually unmask the lunatic left fringe using their own words.

For example, the insanely popular Twitter account, Libs of TikTok which only goes so far as to repost videos of unhinged far-left moonbats, was suspended last week for alleged “hateful conduct.” George Soros’ Media Matters recently complained about the account, accusing it of “anti-LGBTQ smears.” They also accused them of violating Twitter’s policy on “targeted misgendering and deadnaming of transgender people,” whatever that means.

Last week, the creator of Libs of TikTok, who has chosen to remain anonymous, told Fox News’ Tucker Carlson that she has received numerous death threats, which she has reported to Twitter, however the platform has done nothing to them; they “still have their accounts on Twitter. So you can threaten and still keep your account, but you can’t play a video of what a leftist themselves is saying.”

The satire account of The Babylon Bee is still locked out, over a month after calling Richard (Call me Rachel) Levine it’s “Man of the Year.” The creator of The Babylon Bee, Kyle Mann, had his personal Twitter account suspended after he hilariously compared Twitter to China after the Bee was locked out.

“Maybe they’ll let us back into our @TheBabylonBee Twitter account if we throw a few thousand Uighurs in a concentration camp.”

Meanwhile, a Syracuse University professor went unpunished by Twitter for a tween which seemed to call for violence in real time against an anti-Sharia Law protest.

“We almost have the fascists in on [sic] the run,” said Dana Cloud in a tweet. “Syracuse people come down to the federal building to finish them off.”

Oh, and Syracuse University also did nothing to punish the professor.

Big surprise there.
