Periscope blocking "crisis actor"

That was interesting. I started a Periscope talking about my own experience as a "crisis actor", which is simply another way of saying "roleplayer in a training exercise", and most of the people trying to watch it were blocked. I could see the number of people joining and then dropping out going up and down by scores before I shut it down.

It's remarkable how desperate they are to stop "crisis actor" from becoming the "fake news" of 2018. Apparently these people are unfamiliar with the term "Streisand Effect".

Nor is Periscope the only Big Social platform to do so:
On Wednesday, one week after the school shooting in Parkland, Fla., Facebook and YouTube vowed to crack down on the trolls. Thousands of posts and videos had popped up on the sites, falsely claiming that survivors of the shooting were paid actors or part of various conspiracy theories. Facebook called the posts “abhorrent.” YouTube, which is owned by Google, said it needed to do better. Both promised to remove the content.

The companies have since aggressively pulled down many posts and videos and reduced the visibility of others. Yet on Friday, spot searches of the sites revealed that the noxious content was far from eradicated.
UPDATE: Definitely some sort of flag on the term. I did a second Periscope using the name "The Streisand Effect" and had no issues. This is actually an opportunity to redpill some people by showing them the strings; encourage them to put the term "crisis actor" in a YouTube, Facebook, or Periscope title and see what happens. It will definitely convince them that Big Social is suspiciously desperate to conceal specific forms of badthink.

What President Trump should do is call out "crisis actors undermining public confidence in the media," both on Twitter and in a White House address. The response would make last year's Fake News meltdown look downright sane and reserved in comparison.

Hypothesis: The reason why "crisis actor" has the left in such a tizzy is because in order to make sure that they will always have kids spouting the right Social Justice talking points no matter where a school shooting happens, there is an equivalent of JournoList for student actors. And as with Facebook, they stayed on it as they got older and moved into the industry. So many (most? all?) the kids interviewed in these events, and an ever-increasing number of interviewers, will be literal actors who have actually rehearsed that exact situation. So it strikes directly at the man behind the curtain.

Blogger Wynn Lloyd February 24, 2018 7:22 PM  

At first it seemed a little bit of a stretch, then CH and VD explained the issue. Now they are fighting to enforce a certain narrative on it.

The kids are actors. No doubt. If it were loopy bs from irrational "conspiracy theorists," there would be zero need to go to these lengths.

I may make a youtub video on multiple accounts, just to keep them busy.

As pathetic as the acting and dialogue were, one only need to see the the movie called The Circle to get a slight flavor for where this is needed. The book gives a much deeper perspective on the slippery mental slope of fully converged organizations converging on government-enforced righttgink.

Don't tell me they're actively monitoring your Darkstreams and picking up on key words. It must have been the term in the title triggered Periscope to unleash some random interference blocking viewers completely and dropping other viewers during the Darkstream. They didn't want to appear too obvious and completely shut it down.

Wow, that level of censorship is amazing, and really bad.

Methinks the lady doth protest too much.

The Deep state tyranny is everywhere, by whatever name you choose to call it:


Days after South Korea’s chief proponent of regulating cryptocurrency, Jung Ki-joon, was found mysteriously dead in his home, South Korea apparently has decided not to crack down further on trading in bitcoin and other cybercurrencies. On Tuesday, Choe Heung-ski, chief of South Korea’s Finance Supervisory Service, told reporters that the government would support cryptocurrency trading rather than heavily regulating it or banning it completely.

Here's a timeline of what may happen:

1) Levy an automated ban on the term "crisis actor".
2) The GE or some other major wrongthinker will decry media abuse of crisis actors.
3) the MSM will point to the lack of social messaging as proof against the wrongthinker's arguments.
4) the multitudes of people will point out that the term "crisis actor" is/was banned.
5) The MSM will discover that the term "crisis actor" is racist/sexist/homophobic.

Howard, you have missed the part of choosing a term that they love too much. The euphemism treadmill has finally settled on googles and skypes for Africans and Jews because no matter how converged, Silicon Valley can't censor its own names.

Exactly. Something like 'flagger' they would have no problem with just adding to the shadow banned list. You have to use a term they use frequently, so if they block it it will block even more of their stuff than it would of ours.

Hollywood is good, as it implies actor as well. Dreamer, like I suggested, or maybe POC (Person of Crisis or Paid to Organize Crisis),

Blogger Howard Stone February 24, 2018 10:31 PM  

But ther term flagger also applies to their online activities where they red flag everything that they see as “offensive” in order to ban their opposition. Yeah, I still like flaggers. Also, flaggers on construction sites and airports provide directions, in their case it’s mosdirection, as in nothing to see here folks, don’t look this way, look that way.

So, the original timestamp on the closet video by Hogg and company was 9:32 AM, and the shootings happened nearly five hours later at around 2:20 something PM.

We have to build our own platforms...

But keep using the converged ones until the alternatives are perfect.

I don't think that is working out.

OTOH, I've unplugged from the converged, so I can't really tell. But I won't be "the product" for some place that hates me by policy.

But I think my point is valid, why would anyone build or invest in a periscope alternative when everyone is going to still use periscope for the next year or so until the ban hammer hits them?

Blogger Azure Amaranthine February 24, 2018 11:49 PM  

"they're pushing it anyway in pursuit of some monstrous agenda we don't fully grasp."

It's not even that complicated. It's just a push for general power. Everything the government can get a monopoly on, it WILL, because having government-controlled monopolies means more government jobs and more money in the paychecks of the gov-employee who took control of the new (to gov) frontier.

Like a living thing, by definition, government must grow and change or it is not by definition alive, it becomes nothing more than traditional.

Gov grows by several means, such as increasing the population it controls (reproduction or imperialism), increasing the territory it controls (at this point either imperialism or genocide), or broadening its control over more and more aspects of the lives of those governed.

In this case the gov is reaching for a monopoly on protection from violence, just like a transcended form of mafia protection money. It's not really an expansion on monopoly of force, but rather a concentration of who's able to employ it into fewer hands.

Many of them probably aren't even concerned about perpetrating abuses if they got their way (they'd just move on to that naturally, no need for planning), they're just trying to distill power away from the people and into their pockets.

Monstrous agenda? That's just the natural outgrowth of winning at this phase. It's (probably) not planned because it doesn't need to be. Yes there will be egregious, monstrous abusers hidden here and there, but on the average, evil is banal.

Don't we?

1. They aren't enforcing the laws we already have, and in fact would call that racist.

2. It's easier and safer to enforce laws on the law-abiding than on the criminal class.

3. They fiercely oppose enforcing our immigration laws on current law-breakers.

4. Therefore, the only purpose (that I can see) of new gun laws is to make the Heritage American, the responsible goy/infidel, vulnerable to the left's billionaire masters.

Twitter went public a while ago. The issue is that VC money always ties down companies with employees they can't fire. You get 1 of them that's an SJW and it's an infection that slowly destroys the place.


@38 SciVo

Rather than going the Law & Order approach, I wonder if we can flip the narrative about lack of enforcement upon the Left? How can they preach Social Justice when they refuse to enforce the laws on Americans? They're letting Whites get away with murder! (Part of me just wants to see their heads explode.)


On the issue of Crisis Actors & Social Media, when it comes to Video, they are "Speech to Text" transcribing in real-time these days. That's how things are caught on YouTube. No one has to report them. YouTube's system has already processed all of the words said into a transcript by the time the video is posted. YouTube accidentally left part of those flags within the webpage itself & someone found them recently. They were removed, but we do know they Whitelist some channels. Stefan being one of them, oddly enough. (Get too big and it's hard for them to touch you.)

For Periscope, it might just be the title being caught, but for any of the bigger platforms, you have to avoid verbal keyword catches. There's a reason why the FBI staff called the Hillary Email Investigation the "Mid-Year Exam" or MYE. They did that to prevent it from being easily found by someone doing FOIA searches. (The IG had less of an issue finding it.)

Why no mention of them? I can't believe there's been so mention by commenters either. I guess I'll have to just check in there daily again to see.

It's OK, I'm not expecting some kind of special treatment, I was just surprised that I hadn't heard even a mention that Darkstreams were happening again.

I was unaware of this. Are there hashtags where things like this are being communicated? Why has this not been pipelined to "normie-friendly" outlets willing to outline it like Dave Rubin or Tim Pool?

Blogger Looking Glass February 25, 2018 7:29 AM  

Since we're discussing finding rhetoric that works against the SJWs, I was thinking, what's the potential of talking about a Christian Theocracy? From a government standpoint, it doesn't work, but the Left isn't exactly that most logical and they are animated by fear in the first place.

Something along the lines of, "Please! Ban the guns! We'll have a Christian Theocracy in a year." Obviously, it needs work. And the Jack Nicholson "yes" gif.

Very technically, American Progressives *are* Puritans. That's where their branch of Leftism actually stems from: New England Protestant Churches, but stripped of God. It's the reason they always seem to be pushing for a Progressive Theocracy, as that's actually one of their foundational understandings. Not that they have the introspection to realize that.

The Leftist movements all started as invasions of Religious groups. South American Marxism is extremely Catholic for a reason. The Bolsheviks implemented Talmudic Socialism, and set about slaughtering their own people. Stalin brought in Eastern Orthodox Socialism, which felt moving people around constantly was necessary. Always think of Leftism as a virus that infects a host and drives it mad.
