UPDATE: The Daily Dot Writer appears to have previously written for Infowars but his author page was removed. Its possible the writer knew one goal of the hoax was simply to get media to report on it. Point being, don't assume the writer is another activist type falling for a hoax.
Media Takes 4Chan Bait, Runs Hashtag Hoax Story. Every time 4chan decides to implement some hoax the media decides to run with it. They claim the far right is out there and 11 million people are a part of it. In reality its maybe a small handful of people making a post on a forum.
But why does the media run this fake news? Media knows it will generate clicks and far left activists and the social justice crowd can use it to claim there is a boogeyman out there that needs to be stopped. They can then associate the right wing nationalists with the 4 people who posted about the hashtag and claim everything in worse than it is.
In reality, a fringe far right rally only had nine people show up because the truth is there is no boogeyman. The far left and the media push fake news because its mutually beneficial.
