German pedagogy professor Eoin Lenihan and self-described "online extremism researcher" today attacked antifascists and journalists. He also outed himself as well known far-Right troll ProgDad, (banned from Twitter in 2018). Seems he really got "into his research."
While banned from Twitter, Eoin continues to post on Instagram under the title, ProgDadTV, as a caricature and celebration of far-Right tropes held against Leftists, progressives, and 'ANTIFA.'
Here's a little background about Eoin's social media account. pjmedia.com/trending/progr…
Eoin is also well known for large scale trolling campaigns with other big Alt-Right players, specifically against well known hip-hop artist, @TalibKweli.
In the current era, Eoin is attempting to continue his far-Right activism by now rebranding himself as an "online extremism researcher," which of course is ironic, as he played a key role in it as a participant.
His new shtick worked + Eoin appeared on German TV in October 2018 to argue in defense of the Alt-Right and Richard Spencer, that radicalization online was all the result of "the Left" being mean to people, mainly by calling them "Nazis" simply because they disagreed with them.
Unsurprisingly, this is a similar line of thinking promoted by the Alt-Right itself.
Because of his longtime trolling and support of the far-Right, the Alt-Right in particular has held up Eoin/ProgDad as an online celebrity and champion of their racist cause.
