Nasim Aghdam: shadowban rage shooter

Seems that the news yesterday was full of misinformation.

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5576345/The-bizarre-online-life-YouTube-shooter-Nasim-Aghdam.html

She was Iranian, NOT white, and she just randomly fired at a bunch of YouTube employees, not her boyfriend.

She was a weird (some would say crazy) Baha’i who was into veganism and animal rights, but apparently she was not anti-gun. She also had pretty big biceps for a woman, and posted one video that was anti anal sex.

She believed that Google was suppressing her channel because of her anti-corporate beliefs, and the shooting was a revenge shooting against Google. I would say that she had paranoid schizophrenia, except that if she believed that Google was filtering her videos she was probably right. Despite sounding like an extreme liberal with her veganism and animal rights themes (you probably assume that Google doesn’t censor liberals), she also associated with right-wing conspiracy site InfoWars and was against anal sex and the sexual degeneracy of the West in general which sort of sounds homophobic.

You have to experience shadowbanning to understand how aggravating it is. Scott Adams ranted against it a lot, while most people reading those rants couldn’t understand why he was angry. The anger at being shadowbanned could push an already borderline-crazy person like Aghdam over the edge. This could be the first example of a shadowban rage mass-shooting.

It’s time for the big tech companies to be honest and open about what they are doing instead of shadowbanning people.

* * *

The New York Times headline says that the “motive is unclear.”

The motive is clear as day. Shadowban rage! Combined with the fact that she was borderline-crazy to begin with. Stupid New York Times.

Also the article says some of her YouTube videos were in “Persian,” while just two weeks ago in a different NY Times article, the same language was called “Farsi.”

What’s the name of the language? Persian or Farsi? Isn’t a prestigious newspaper like the NY Times supposed to have an internal style guide and editors who enforce it so that they use consistent language between articles?

The answer is that when reporting about a shooter, the language is “Persian” because it sounds more benign. NY Times editors think that “Farsi” sounds like a language used by Islamic terrorists.

Obviously, the goal of the NY Times and other MSM who play tricks with “Iranian,” “Persian,” and “Farsi” is to confuse us rather than enlighten us.

Is “borderline crazy” a real thing? Yes it is! Officially called borderline personality disorder.

  1. Neo-censorship tactics are worse than traditional censorship. When used maliciously by entities like Google/YouTube, it doesn’t surprise me that this happens. They seek effectively to create an alternate reality whereby the censored cannot interact with the normal world. When you do that to a person it’s a deliberate attempt to make them question their own sanity (gaslighting).

  2. Iranians (trans. Aryans) are the core White group. They are the residue of the first Indo-European expansion some 5,000 years ago. Afghanis, Pakis and Hindus are also White, Indo-Europeans, and all speak Indo-European languages.

    I know many people restrict White to Germanic peoples, but even they should include the Iranians.

    • By my reading of Reich’s new book, white people descend from European hunter gatherers, Anatolian “first farmers” and Yamnaya steppe people. Indians and Iranians only have the Yamnaya (or Aryan) element, so they’re not white.

      • Iranians obviously also have some of the same Middle Eastern farmer component. They miss the European hunter-gatherer component directly but the Yamnaya people were a mixture of European hunter-gatherers and some still somewhat mysterious easterners so they have received European hunter-gatherer genes (as have Indians). The components that make Iranians are not that different and before the Arab expansion much of the Middle East seems to have been very similar to southern Europeans.

        This woman, however, has a lot of Turkic texts on her website which suggests that she is an ethnic Azeri from Iran. If so then she would also be expected to have a small Mongoloid component (Middle Eastern Turkic people are assimilated locals with a minor Turkic genetic influence).

      • “This woman, however, has a lot of Turkic texts on her website which suggests that she is an ethnic Azeri from Iran.”

        Has she dais her own name in any of her videos? The “gh” (also spelled as a g with a breve) is pronounced as a throaty /g/ sound in Azeri (the Parisians have changed their [r] sound into something resembling this, somehow) but is silent in Turkish.

    • I’ve seen videos of this creepy woman who went postal on youtube employees. She might be a descendant of Genghis Khan. Clearly she has Mongoloid elements that reminds you of Yakov’s buddies from Central Asian Stan.

  4. from reddit:

    “I’m Persian and had seen a few of her videos before. I have to add that she indeed was a weird girl; batshit crazy if you will. Some of her videos in Farsi had got famous in the Persian community because she acted weird and was talking crazy. People were actually laughing at her stupid videos. If you’d asked me before which of the Persian social media personalities would you diagnose as psycho, I would have definitely chosen her. Guess this incident confirms my suspicion.”

  6. Well, I’m humbled. This certainly is not a shooter I could have predicted. It’s a crazy world out there.

    Here’s her website (might want to look before it could be taken down): http://www.nasimesabz.com/

    It’s abundantly clear that she is somewhat nuts. And she is a bit weird-looking, though doesn’t seem to have a speech impediment (just an accent). I’m nearly positive she was born a woman. If she’s schizophrenic, it’s a very mild case, which does seem to be more the norm among female schizos (which are rare in any case). In my experience with male schizos, they are mostly complete basket cases who can’t hope to create or accomplish much of anything. Her series of YouTube videos would be WAY beyond their abilities.

    Her mild mental illness probably does a lot to explain her idiosyncratic belief system. But I agree with Lion that her concerns and her rage are at least somewhat justified. Probably a lot of relatively normal people, especially young women, would be absolutely distraught if they were “shadowbanned” from social media. But not many would take a gun to YouTube HQ.

    That sounds like it came straight from Lawrence Auster. Good memories.

    • I can recall a couple of great Auster lines and still laugh out loud. I recall a commentary of his on a photo of Demi Moore dancing drunkenly in front of a black celeb musician (“He appears lost in reverie, or perhaps, his drugs.”

      April 4, 2018 at EDT am

    • The mention of the word “motive” immediately brought Auster to mind for me as well. I remember him pointing out the absurdity of the police intoning deeply about “motive” in some news article about some black ghetto gangbanger shooting some other black ghetto gangbanger, as though it never occurred to them that someone with an IQ of 85, low future time orientation, poor impulse control, and a predisposition toward anger doesn’t need some deep and solemn “motive” to shoot someone.

  8. “The New York Times headline says that the “motive is unclear.””

    It’s called the Butterfield Effect. Injecting mystery into an unwanted narrative development. I assume most here are familiar with the concept, but once recognized the ‘news’ reads much differently.

    From wiki:

    Butterfield is the eponym for “The Butterfield Effect”, used to refer to a person who “makes a statement that is ludicrous on its face, yet it reveals what the speaker truly believes”, especially if expressing a supposed paradox when a causal relationship should be obvious.[5][6] The particular article that sparked this was titled “More Inmates, Despite Drop In Crime” by Butterfield in the New York Times on November 8, 2004.[7]

  9. Seems to me her motive was that she wanted attention. Let’s suppose Youtube were completely open and honest; didn’t shadowban anyone; etc. Even then, she would naturally have lost popularity because that’s what happens with Youtube channels. They peak and then decline.

    Especially when the Youtuber is a woman who is hitting the wall. I don’t think it’s a coincidence that she is 39 years old. Probably she was pretty cute when she was in her 20s and early 30s and a lot of men humored her craziness in hopes of getting laid.

    But that’s a bitter pill for anyone to swallow. Easier to convince yourself that Youtube is unfairly screwing you over.

    • Lefties can get shadowbanned too. She was apparently into exposing factory farming practices. That actually ruffles some Big Ag corporate feathers (so to speak) and obviously contains gruesome imagery. That more than any Taylor Swift parody can get you filtered and otherwise taken down a notch in visibility.

  10. I wish I could erase the image of this crazy gal from my mind. The news media poisons you with bad vibes.

    This whole horrifying affair depicts the darkest corners of social media in all its sad, desperate insanity. When you crave validation on Youtube and don’t get it — and you’re obviously too crazy to form irl relationships — you snap.

    Heritage America was a beautiful thing. Modern America is increasingly twisted, depraved, and angry. I’m unsure that I like all that much.

  11. As far as the lack of consistency between “Persian” and “Farsi,” the NY Times cut a lot of their copy editing positions last summer. NY Times management stated that the function of copy editing could be folded into the responsibilities of the writers — in essence, reporters would be their own copy editors. If you go on Google or Bing, you can find a lot of articles about the job losses. People were predicting back then that cutting these positions would hurt the Times.

  12. I never understood people like this. I mean, you have a complaint, you are angry so why do you go and kill people who aren’t responsible for the problem? She should have attacked the management behind the shadow banning, not the ordinary employees. Lion, when it’s your turn go postal, I hope you act rationally.

    • Like I said, she was borderline crazy, normal sane people don’t go on shooting rampages because life throws them a few lemons.

      But (1) her life was devoted to her YouTube stuff; and (2) discovering that you are sneakily banned or filtered and thus prevented from growing your following is especially aggravating, even if you are a normal person who doesn’t have borderline personality disorder.

  14. “Farsi” and “Persian” are confused a lot because even Iranians don’t agree which word is the correct word in English. If the Iranians the NYT talked to kept saying “Persian” I am not surprised the NYT didn’t correct it to “Farsi”. “Persian” is the correct word in English, btw. Saying “Farsi” is like calling Spanish “Espanyol”.

    • It’s a real trend among liberals (and the institutions they dominate, like media) to drop the correct English word and substitute something “authentic”. I bought an Oxford atlas recently and the maps were a slurry of exotic gibberish, with locations like Turin and Corsica marked as “Torino” and “Corse”. It’s a statement meant to show cultural sensitivity, but the effect of all this is to make people less informed, by making normal references in past English writings unintelligible.

      April 4, 2018 at EDT pm

      • I’ve noticed this too, and also a related trend among American liberal SWPL types wanting to seem “authentic” is an increasing use of British English as if they view it as somehow “more correct” than American English. I’ve seen people who are thoroughly American start using “holiday” instead of “vacation,” “mum” instead of “mom,” etc.

      • Because to SJWs, identifying certain people as being “of the East” is the result of a Western-centric view of the world. They think it reflects an assumption that the West is the center of the universe and that everywhere else is defined by its relation to the West.

    • In this age of technology that is set to render human behavior in its primal form to be meaningless, those who cannot adapt will self-annihilate. Those with lower IQs and especially those who belong to a certain racial demographic are prone to self-annihilation.

  18. Shadow banning is defrauding people of their time. It would be a hoot if some federal lawmaker introduced a bill outlawing it.. It would never go anywhere because Republicans can never say no to big business, but bringing up the possibility would shake things up in a fun way.

    I forget, why is “Oriental” a racist word? Because Conservatism’s model minority wants to get in on the soaking and robbing whitey bandwagon, and are encouraged to do so by a thoroughly racist dominant culture and the government it produces.
