White House Plans Anti-Gun Twitterbomb

Posted: April 12, 2013 by ShortTimer in Government, Guns, Second Amendment, Tyranny, White House

The White House is asking people to support their call for greater government power via a massive anti-gun twitterbomb.

The White House is using a third-party system called “Thunderclap“. Thunderclap is a system by which people log in with a Twitter or FB account, then decide to share a message, and the system holds their message until a threshold is met.

When the threshold is met, all of their messages are sent at once, creating a “thunderclap” twitterbomb that dominates discussion by effectively generating an artificial viral meme.  It’s very collectivist, and quite sinister to see the White House orchestrating and agitating for greater government power by becoming the puppeteers of an engineered outcry.

With the “now is the time” demands, the White House site is somewhat ominous:

now is the time white house antigun twitterbomb

And there’s this, showing their expected “social reach” and the extent to which the White House intends to project its online propagandist neo-“Four-Minute Men“:

now is the time white house antigun twitterbomb 2

From the Thunderclap site:

Update: There is now a pro-Second Amendment Thunderclap being organized for those who wish to counterprotest.

There are some who resist.  From Redditor roadkill6:

Here is the link to the whitehouse.gov page about it. When they get to a social-reach of ~24 million people, they will post the following statement through the Facebook and Twitter accounts of everyone who signed up:

“I support common-sense steps to reduce gun violence. #NowIsTheTime to act. Share this if you agree:”

I think we should come up with our own hashtag and message and set up a similar system. What do you think?

EDIT: Having a webpage where people can sign up to be part of a Twitter/Facebook bomb like the one at whitehouse.gov would be really nice. Any suggestions?

UPDATE: You can follow the #NowIsTheTime hashtag here. Thanks to /u/Bartman383 for the link in the comments.

UPDATE: /u/Gunrightprotector has created www.nowisthetime.co and is waiting for approval of a Thunderclap-based Twitter-bomb. I have contacted the NRA-ILA, the Second Amendment Foundation, and Gun Owners of America, so hopefully I will hear back from them soon.

#NowIsTheTime for Americans to tell Congress what they really think about “common sense” civilian disarmament.

There are a few others who resist.

    Talk about propaganda. This is really turning into the Nazi regime of the new millennium. “Common sense” isn’t so common anymore, otherwise people wouldn’t be so excited to hand over their rights. Thanks for bringing this out. Hopefully we’re not all in a losing battle against these disgusting creatures that happily exploit pain and loss for their own agendas instead of acting on fact and reason.

    Keep up the good fight. Semper Libertas.

    Must be some way to monkeywrench it…

  4. I’ve got a better idea for a hastag: #foreignanddomestic — as in, “I support the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic. That’s the oath they took, that’s the standard we need to hold them to.

  8. ohh! so that’s the point of thunderclap. I saw reference to it on the Twitterz but didn’t understand that all the separate tweets get dumped simultaneously. Very clever that. You know, before the Thunderclap there were still multiple boilerplate tweets using Obama’s newest hashtag from brand new egg AVs that appeared spam generated in some fashion, but those have dried up now that they’ve found a new trick.

    I’ve been checking out at the #nowisthetime timeline since about 6 hours after OFA first tweeted it. It appears to me that most of the pro-2A tweeting on the #nowisthetime hashtag is nonboilerplate and not manufactured but truely grassroots and viral. We’ve been mixing it up with the #gosnell twitterfest, too, b/c all their talking points about saving even one child, etc, belongs in the prolife context.

    what will be next, I wonder?
