Kiwi Farms Down After MTG Swatting
The farms always win.
From The Daily Beast:
In a police report obtained by The Daily Beast, authorities said that at around 3 a.m., the Rome Police Department received a call “about a male possibly shooting his family members and then himself.”
“Swatting,” or the act of phoning in bogus emergency calls to trigger a massive police response, is a tactic used to instill fear and worry among foes in the internet age. Orchestrating a “swatting” incident is illegal and can yield criminal charges if those responsible are identified in an investigation.
The police report continued by stating the phone call had been routed through a suicide crisis center, which further blurred the identity of the mysterious caller.
“The person who made the call through the chat advised that they ‘came out as trans-gender and claimed they shot the family,’” the report added.
Additionally, the caller told an operator that the non-existent shooter “would be waiting” for police and “if anyone tried to stop [the shooter] from shooting myself, I will shoot them.”
Police arrived at Greene’s home in the early morning hours and determined it was another swatting incident.
“Swatted again last night,” the far-right lawmaker wrote on Twitter in light of the incident.
Greene’s office didn’t return The Daily Beast’s request for comment.
The Thursday false alarm comes after Greene was swatted a day prior by an alleged user of the far-right Kiwi Farms platform, a haven for tolls that want to cause chaos.
As for both fake calls, they remain under investigation.
“The Rome Police Department Criminal Investigation Division is working in conjunction with the Capital Police on this investigation,” the Rome Police Department said in a statement to The Daily Beast on Wednesday.
I don’t think kiwi farms should be taken down. Not going to be a fag about it like everyone else and say the site is an achievement in free speech and null is brave. Null is a weird guy and the kiwis put a bad taste in my mouth. Only reason KF should be up is because I want this site up.
It doesn’t really matter anyway. The Daily Stormer has to change domain names every six months. Their cloudflare was revoked long ago over a joke. Comparatively, kiwi farm’s users have been responsible for way worse. Ik Null will say that his users aren’t him but look at the downfall of 8chan. The only reason Kiwi Farms is still alive is due to it not being a threat to the system and the users actively attacking dissidents.
