so the fake antifa twitter fucked up today and included their geo location.

this is a really interesting case because it illustrates a few-
-things, they post what they think makes them appear "progressive", shit like "inclusivity!" and "gluten-free options!", which are what-
-conservatives often use to make fun of progressives for. They emulated these things, believing it'd help them appear as progressives
the entire account is a caricature of what a conservative would think they'd have to act, to appear as a progressive. Since their whole-
-approach is flawed, their fakeness becomes apparent to any progressive, because it's just a bit "off". They don't understand the-
-viewpoints they're trying to emulate, they just do what they think they need to do to pretend

the point of all this is to create a-
-credible looking fake account, where they post "gluten free!" shit, and then they post fake videos of fake antifa beating people up
your average conservative will look at this, linked from another page, see "gluten free" and then believe this account is legitimate
and then, your aunt on facebook, and even your mild-mannered centrist coworkers, get the impression that antifa are violent anarchists
which is the entire point: to sway public perception of antifa as violent entitled lazy brat millenial anarchists. thus, "gluten free" lol
this is the sort of shit people are referring to when they INSIST that antifa are actually instigators cuz they saw a link on facebook
the gluten-free thing I think is so interesting because, I doubt the guy running this twitter ever heard/cared about that issue before-
-noticing that conservatives made fun of progressives for it a lot, so they began using it to parody them, like that'd work lol
it's like, back during gamer gate, they had the "not your shield" fake accounts who parodied "SJWs" in interesting caricatured ways
sometimes I wonder if neocons understand the progressive viewpoint and just are too evil to agree... but shit like this makes me think-
-that they literally, seriously, do not understand the larger point of progressivism at all
