Have you heard about “/pol/“? Short for "Politically Incorrect," /pol/ is 4chan's online board for discussing and debating politics and current events.
This group is on a never-ending quest to troll the Left with intelligence, humour, and facts over feelings.
They’re called “weaponized autism,” defined at the Urban Dictionary as “the focused application of computer tech savvy and social awkwardness in the cyber pursuit of justice.”
They chased Shia Labeouf around the world, stealing his anti-Trump flag wherever he flew it.
They helped call in an airstrike on Al Qaeda in Syria by identifying a training camp via satellite imagery.
But now, /pol/ is turning their hard-honed skills and abilities into a powerful force against the scourge of Antifa and would-be domestic terrorists in the streets.
For example, they identified the “bike lock attacker” of the most recent Berkeley conflict as college professor Eric Clanton.
So what is /pol/ anyway?
I talked to some /pol/ users about why they do what they do.
