The Anti-Brexit Movements are under ATTACK

The Anti-Brexit Movements are under ATTACK!

Contact me on Twitter @StevieCABZ

I am (or was for a bit) Activist for the Anti-Brexit movements on social media.  (I now realise that its easy to get caught up in modern activities, why, because we allow ourselves to be.  I may go back to this exact podcast topic soon!

One common theme in all groups is the influx of Trolls. Whenever a group or movement gets big enough they are attacked by people with interests from the right of politics.

I have recorded this podcast to hopefully help people be able to easily identify the shills, trolls, unknowing (sub-conscious) sockpuppets and the thousands of fake accounts.

This has been recorded for ALL Remain / Anti Brexit groups! I am not a member of any single group and follow them all. I continually find myself trying to steer debates from irrational vote changing back rhetoric onto the Anti-Brexit campaigning.

Twitter as a platform relies on Influencers, Influencers are pushed to the top of everyones feeds and many people take their words as gospel truth.  There are people at all levels, right up to politicians who are happy to use this technique to wrongly subvert people into their way of political thinking

Anyway, I have been waffling here, Listen to the show for all info!

(Important elements to look into if you want some further reading would be to look into “media control”, “perception management” and “subversion”).

The truth about the #FBPE Movement

Subversion, Propaganda and some really nice people!

Catch me on Twitter @StevieCSmith

This is a min-i-nvestigation where I wanted to have a good look at at the Anti-Brexit movements on Twitter and analyse for any elements of perception management.

In November this year, a twitter storm/movement was launched by a small group using the name ” #FBPE ” whose aim is to promote a united Europe by fighting Brexit.

After a short time following and activst’ing (is that even a word?) this movement, I quickly noticed that attempts were being made to hijack the movement. But Stevie  I hear you ask, why would anyone do this? The answer is simple, people want to meet their own political goals and think that the Anti-Brexit movement(s) are a threat to their aims.

This made me aware that there may be more to this seemingly harmless hashtag and I was compelled into putting a magnifying glass to this movement to find out Who exactly they are and whether they existed to honestly fight Brexit or if they were actually a nefarious group with a hidden motive.

I also wanted to get to the core of an online political activist movement and find out who exactly puts these together.

This show is split over 2 short podcasts and documents my journey and investigations into the FBPE movement to find out who they really are and what their end goals are.

In part 1  I ask the questions … 

  1. The truth about the FBPE movement World of trash podcasts hosted by stevie january 2018
    The truth about the FBPE movement World of trash podcasts hosted by stevie january 2018
  2. When did the movement start?
  3. Who created/manages the #FBPE movement?

AND, in part 2 of this Min-i-nvestigation* , I ask…

  1. What is the goal of the #FBPE movement?
  2. Did the movement have any Subversive agenda other than Brexit?
  3. Should you follow groups like #FBPE?

(Cool new word eh! Mini – investigation?! … It’ll catch on)

Within Part 2 of the Podcast is all remaining information about the #FBPE movement which I learned directly from the people who created and ran it. This is also a cautionary tale about Propaganda and Subversion. Just who can you trust when it comes to online Brexit debate?

I hope something can be learned by anyone who is a campaigner or activist for any political party or topic.

Following on and completing my mini Investigation into the #FBPE twitter movement.

you may be asking yourself “Stevie, Why are covering this topic”?

Well, a month or so ago I saw an Anti-Brexit twitter storm develop and I was instantly drawn in by this new forms of activism.

After a few weeks of taking part in the Twitter Storm / Movement, I noticed that there seemed to be people with ulterior motives jumping on.

The targeted disruption to this Twitter movement at first came by way of people trying to reframe discussions, turning them from discussions about how to end of protest Brexit into petty arguments that pitched the left against the right or even against itself.  The common theme of this attempt to derail every discussion into arguments was the use of the theory that Jeremy Corbyn was the Catalyst for Brexit.

So with my Bullshit meter detecting such enormous volumes of poop and attempts to sabotage the movement, I felt that they must be doing something right!

This combination of a potential propaganda war and group of people who may be standing up and rebelling against the state(s) was irresistible. And so I decided to go on a SMALL journey into the #FBPE Movement to find out WHO they are and also to try and identify who might be trying to make their lives difficult … or at least why!
