8chan Owner To Testify, Says El Paso Manifesto “Was Not Uploaded By The Murderer”

8chan censored by cloudflare

Although Facebook executives are denying it, 8chan owner Jim Watkins took to social media yesterday and explained that the El Paso shooter’s alleged manifesto was “not uploaded by the murderer.”

If that’s the case and he can prove it, the glaring question is who exactly uploaded it, when and why?

Already, conspiracy theorists have cited strange CIA connections and the shooter’s weirdo dad, whose new-age ‘enlightenment’ is disturbing to behold.

However, the villain (other than President Trump, who didn’t do anything to incite this freak killer… and of course, the disgusting murderer) is slowly shaping up around Watkins.

CNET reported:

Instagram said Tuesday a hate-filled manifesto linked to the alleged El Paso shooter wasn’t first uploaded to the Facebook-owned site as suggested by the owner of a fringe message board where the document was discovered.

A spokeswoman for Facebook said it disabled an Instagram account tied to the suspected gunman on Saturday. The account hadn’t been active for more than a year, she said.

[And we all know how trustworthy Facebook is, right?]

The statement comes after Jim Watkins, owner of the 8chan message board, suggested in a YouTube video that the document had been loaded to his site by a different user.

Watkins, who appeared in front of an image of Benjamin Franklin, said the site had made law enforcement “aware” of the manifesto when it appeared.

He also suggested — but didn’t state — that the gunman, who is accused of killing 22 people and wounding another two dozen in the attack at a Walmart store in Texas, had posted the document to Instagram.

“First of all, the El Paso shooter posted on Instagram, not 8chan,” Watkins said in the video. “Later, someone uploaded the manifesto. However, that manifesto was not uploaded by the Walmart shooter. I don’t know if he wrote it or not, but it was not uploaded by the murderer; that is clear.”

The Twitter account of the House of Representatives’ Committee on Homeland Security posted Tuesday a request for Watkins to appear in front of Congress.

Rep. Bennie Thompson, a Democrat from Missouri and chairman of the committee, and Rep. Mike Rogers, a Republican from Michigan, penned the letter and referenced the El Paso mass shooting as “at least the third act of white supremacist extremist violence” linked to the site.

“Experts have described 8chan as a platform for amplifying extremist views, leading to the radicalization of its users,” the representatives said in the letter. “Americans deserve to know what, if anything, you, as the owner and operator, are doing to address the proliferation of extremist content on 8chan.”

Since the discovery of the manifesto, 8chan has lost technical support from services such as security platform Cloudflare. The site went down early Monday. At the time, a tweet from the site’s official account said it’d be down for 24 to 48 hours. 8chan isn’t currently available.

Many people understand the expected results of the horrible tragedy: Looking to capitalize on the deaths of people, politicians will try to erode liberties like free speech and gun ownership… all while using their rhetoric to attack President Trump.

It almost seems scripted.

  1. Do you have a spam issue on this site; I also am a blogger, and I was wondering your situation; we have developed some nice methods and we are looking to swap methods with others, why not shoot me an email if interested.

  2. An intriguing discussion will probably be worth comment. I think that you simply write more on this topic, it will not be described as a taboo subject but generally folks are insufficient to communicate in on such topics. To a higher. Cheers
