Well fuck

2018-04-18 18:17:24 UTC  

For the record, Chesny was never a member of Identity Evropa. @everyone

Thats a GI banner. Nothing like IEs logo lol

2018-04-18 18:19:19 UTC  

@Deleted User could this count as defamation? If the banner didn't have our info on it, RT is falsely linking us to an unscrupulous character.

2018-04-18 18:19:26 UTC  

They probably said IE on purpose as a means of slander tbh

2018-04-18 18:19:28 UTC  

Lol. >journalism

2018-04-18 18:19:59 UTC  

Only if they knew it to be false and did it on purpose to harm us. @Reinhard Wolff

2018-04-18 18:20:15 UTC  

Which they probably did - but would never admit.

2018-04-18 18:20:27 UTC  

Yep. It's almost like journalists are lazy, disengenous, and fairly stupid.

2018-04-18 18:20:28 UTC  

Chances are that they are just that stupid and didn't know it was false information.

2018-04-18 18:21:35 UTC  

Journalist: *sees something that looks like a triangle*

2018-04-18 18:21:40 UTC  

You could easily combine those incorrect ties with the "neo Nazi" title to substantiate an argument that it was meant to tarnish the organizations reputation

2018-04-18 18:22:16 UTC  

Journalist: I’ve seen this before! It’s that Identify Europe group again!

2018-04-18 18:26:25 UTC  

@Reinhard Wolff It's certainly a basis to demand a correction (we should), but it's probably not enough for a defamation suit. Especially given the nature of our org's activities

2018-04-18 18:26:59 UTC  

At least demand a correction and public apology

2018-04-18 18:27:30 UTC  

"RT apologizes to white nationalists!"

2018-04-18 18:33:17 UTC  


2018-04-18 18:35:41 UTC  

How would we contact them?

2018-04-18 18:44:13 UTC  

Fake news a real marine would have drawn the banner in crayon

2018-04-18 18:48:05 UTC  

@Reinhard Wolff there should be an editor mailbox or number for the publication.

2018-04-18 18:48:50 UTC  

Are rubles worth enough to sue RT for?

2018-04-18 18:49:52 UTC  

I don't foresee many rubles here.

2018-04-18 18:54:29 UTC  

There is law on retractions though in some jurisdictions I think

2018-04-18 18:58:55 UTC  

@Mark Vandal accurate

2018-04-18 18:59:26 UTC  

RT needs to report the truth on radicalized gamers

2018-04-18 19:05:55 UTC  

Why do you think we use triangles? Give us half life 3.

2018-04-18 19:47:50 UTC  

Not even our slogan, it's "The Party"'s

2018-04-18 20:12:31 UTC  

From 1984

2018-04-18 23:55:25 UTC  

This bodes well and seems like a recent development.

2018-04-18 23:55:56 UTC  

Oh wow. That's pretty cool.

2018-04-18 23:56:30 UTC  

Would be nice if they dropped the "white nationism" label, but it's progress.

2018-04-18 23:58:54 UTC  

dude based

2018-04-19 00:13:09 UTC  

At least it doesn’t say neonazi

2018-04-19 00:33:24 UTC  


2018-04-19 00:39:31 UTC  

@Deleted User The wikipedia page labes us as a neo-nazi group. Not good, we should do something about that.

2018-04-19 00:40:16 UTC  

@Marty ScorchedEarthse very difficult to do so. Wikipedia has mega sjw moderators. The best way is to make an account and integrate yourself as an editor for the next 3 years.

2018-04-19 00:40:30 UTC  

before trying to change anything on IE's page.

2018-04-19 00:41:01 UTC  

Idk if it's bc it's tailored to me but thankfully the wiki page is not the first thing. Looks like we have a good SEO!

2018-04-19 00:49:03 UTC  

We do.
