Following the claim by the accused perpetrator of the recent mass shooting in Buffalo, New York that he was radicalized into his actions by internet content, G4 TV host Indiana “Frosk” Black has taken to claiming that seemingly all online groups have been wholesale “infiltrated, manipulated, and hijacked by nefarious groups via ‘meme’ propaganda.”

In a personal manifesto shared to the internet shortly before the shooting, the suspect reported that he was radicalized into committing his horrific, racism-fueled actions after he “started browsing 4chan in May 2020.”

“I eventually wound up on /pol/ [the site’s politics message board],” he wrote, as per a personal review of the document by this article’s author. “There I learned through infographics, s–tposts, and memes that the White race is dying out.”

However, though the suspect claims that said content was his metaphorical gateway into racist ideologies, he soon after asserts that he was specifically inspired into committing the attack by Christchurch mosque mass shooter Brenton Tarrant.

“I found the 17 minute livestream of him attacking the Al-Noor mosque,” he elaborates. “I eventually found his manifesto” – large parts of which he would go on to copy for his own writing – “and I read it, and I found that I mostly agreed with him. Finally I thought to myself, perhaps there is a chance we can combat this.”

Just several hours after the attack had taken place, Frosk – best known for her infamous on-air “sexism in gaming” rant – took to Twitter to offer her first thoughts on the situation, opining that “Mandatory watching should be Q: Into the Storm on HBO Max.”

“We’ve been articulating for years the radicalization pipeline and that series beautifully lays it out step by step with ridiculous interviews,” she said. “It’s not too late to un-blackpill.”

A few hours later, Frosk would follow up this initial suggestion by warning her followers, “I wish internet communities would recognize that their spaces have been infiltrated, manipulated, and hijacked by nefarious groups via ‘meme’ propaganda.”

“‘Just jokes bro’ until hatred becomes normalized, then becomes radicalized, then becomes a hate crime,” she continued.

Turning to that tired old gem, Frosk then declared that “gamergate was a great example about how language and a cause were hijacked by bad faith actors who wanted nothing to do with gaming communities until they recognized they could weaponize the conflict for their own agenda.”

Ultimately, Frosk concluded her thoughts by suggesting, “If you would like to read up on how gamergate was used by these bad faith actors and directly played into radicalization pipelines online I recommend Alt Right: From 4Chan to White House by Mike Wendling or if you’d rather watch Q:Into the Storm on HBO Max.”
