It's a way of life in the right-wing community: informers and informants exist among us because many people want to stop us from being effective. Informants/informers generally come in two types:
- People compromised by government. They committed a crime, got caught, and got offered a deal. They escape prosecution (basically go on an extended probation conditional on their informant activities) and get $$$ in exchange for spying on their former comrades. Governments have done this for 100s of years.
- People who are crazy. Most of these are getting disability checks from the government and so can never actually participate in effective activism, because then they'd lose their free ride. These people just want to draw attention to themselves, and so they create drama, stir up trouble, and watch other people take the fall. This makes them feel important and satiates their desire for revenge on a world that has passed them by, because it's not on disability with nothing in life but a computer and a grudge.
- Asserts a true/false orthodoxy. They need you to classify yourself as an extremist, so they will offer up true/false type decisions and use them to polarize you. "Either the Jew runs our sandwich industry, or it doesn't. Are you pro-Jew or pro-liberation of sandwiches?" You are either with the radicals, or you're fake and they may even accuse you of being the informer.
- Pushes you to do more radical things. They use these true/false equations to divide the group into those who want to get more radical and those who want to be reasonable, and use this to portray the reasonable people as wimps, fakes, poseurs. This both enables them to get convictions and to make themselves look more "for real."
- Has no purpose and visible means of support. Normal people have goals in life and careers. Informants are getting paid by the government, or are insane people living on disability, and so they don't need these things.
- Encourages futile "action." Informants want you to expose yourself so you can be arrested with clear evidence of your guilt. That way everyone else nods and goes, "They got a bad one there." They like futile action like blowing up strategically inconsequential targets, beating up inconsequential people, and engaging in riotous, illegal and criminal behavior for the sake of staying true to a lifestyle. All of these make nice tidy convictions.
- Always draws attention to themselves, then vanishes. The classic informer behavior is to create an orthodoxy, radicalize the participants, then encourage "action" which is futile and then to vanish so that the police can make the bust.
- Sebastian Ernst Ronin. Revealed personal information about right-wing activists to an open group that he knew contained ANTIFA.
- Criostoir O'Domhnallain. Passed on personal information about right-wing activists to leftist groups.
- Maury Knutson. Repeatedly reposted personal information about right-wing activists to left-wing users and groups. Also has a blog at Maury2k.com.
- Jake Kelk. In response to this article, posted wrong information about the person he assumed was the writer, but believed it was correct at the time and, by posting it on a public profile of a leftist activist, clearly intended it to reach the wrong hands.
