A lengthy X thread posted by the antifascist research group Anonymous Comrades Collective last week claimed that Stonetoss is a man named Hans Kristian Graebener from Spring, Texas. Stonetoss cartoons, which feature simple and colorful imagery coupled with racist, homophobic, and antisemitic language, have become hugely popular among right-wing communities since they were first published at least seven years ago.

Dang. I hope someone doesn't paste this on Twitter and get it removed.

There are now hundreds of posts on the platform which name Stonetoss as [doxxedNazi]. There are also numerous accounts on the platform that changed their profile name to “[Nazi Doxxi] is stonetoss”—and they haven’t all been suspended.

Interesting: when I search the guy’s name on the dying bird site, top results are all low-view Tweets. And only found one user with the above username. Marsman really sticking up for him!

He also had a comic called Red Panels before which was even worse. Stonetoss was a rebrand to come across as less horrifically racist. The article mentions this, but I think associating his name with Red Panel is also important.

Uhh the article just casually throws out there the phrase neo-nazi homeschooling network like that is a collection of words that can exist together now. Ffs.

[-] EmpathicVagrant 32 points 2 months ago

Well I mean, it is. There’s a known network for homeschooling that’s based around wildly fascist views, actively teaching those values.

Yeah I think it’s under a different name but written by the same folks

[-] [email protected] 17 points 2 months ago

😭 not clicking not clicking

[-] [email protected] 5 points 2 months ago

It's a vice news article from last year.

[-] [email protected] 34 points 2 months ago

Of course they are. Twitter was bought by a thin skinned fascist and this is all expected behavior. It's fine to post there for initial awareness, but post your info on other sites as well. Musk can't delete threads on mastodon.

i assume thats a fake stone toss? darn its gold!

[-] Lonnie123 33 points 2 months ago

Was it illegal to do what they did to the guy? Thats the only reason Elon says he would ever take any content down from X

[-] [email protected] 61 points 2 months ago

They made a new policy just for him!

“The posts that were removed were all actioned correctly,” says Joe Benarroch, head of business operations at X, adding that the posts violated the company’s “posting private information policy” for “outing the identity of an anonymous user.”

While X does have a policy around sharing private information, the company’s terms of service on March 20 did not mention a policy related to outing the identity of an anonymous user, and Benarroch did not respond to a request for clarification. On March 21, after WIRED published this story, X updated its privacy policy to specifically prohibit posting the ”the identity of an anonymous user, such as their name or media depicting them.”

How long until PG ignores that rule when some normal, non-Nazi gets doxxed? I give it maybe 2 mooches.

[-] [email protected] 3 points 2 months ago

Americans and their mooches. Why not join the rest world and tell time the correct, lettuces.

So The ~~New York~~ Times will be banned with extreme prejudice for doxxing F1nn5ter the other day, right Anakin?

Anakin?

[-] [email protected] 6 points 2 months ago

That didn’t sound right - it was The Times!

And of course ;)

[-] [email protected] 2 points 2 months ago* (last edited 2 months ago)

Kinda surprising they didn't have a doxxing policy prior to this, no?

[-] Hominine 6 points 2 months ago* (last edited 2 months ago)

Free speech^1^

[-] Hobbes_Dent 27 points 2 months ago

Two people who have no clue what free speech means.

[-] themeatbridge 2 points 2 months ago

They don't care what free speech means.

[-] Passerby6497 20 points 2 months ago

I'm absolutely surprised that PG is protecting a Nazi.

So many owned strawmen.

I think Elon musk is putting all of his and X's eggs in the Trump basket. He is betting on Trump winning the election, X being the mouthpiece of the new system of government, and himself, Tesla, SpaceX, powerwall, and all of his other looney ideas being the beneficiary of government contracts and favors from the new regime just as looney as he is.

I wouldn't be surprised if he had this in mind for a long time. That's probably ascribing him more intelligence that he has, but it goes with his Bond villain persona. Maybe it's why he bought Twitter at a loss.

[-] asteriskeverything 2 points 2 months ago

Trump is nothing to men with that kind of wealth and power. Especially one so bad at everything he does.

Nah Elon is 100% another crazy narcissist with too much money, power, and yes men.
