Brexit ‘2nd Referendum Petition’ A 4 Chan Prank: BBC Report It As Real

By Louise Mensch|9:38 am, June 26, 2016

The 4 Chan Bots represent the ultimate failure of the Remainstream Media.

The BBC’s desperate shilling for Remain will come under increasing scrutiny as we exclusively reveal that the supposed ‘popular petition’ for a second referendum – wholly illegal and unworkable, and unprecedented in British history – is a prank by notorious sh*tposters 4 Chan.

The BBC, the UK’s national broadcaster, gleefully reported, as real, with no basic journalistic checks, an online petition that appeared to be growing at a colossal rate. By 1:30 pm, it was one of the fastest-growing petitions in history.

So fast, in fact, that somebody should have checked for bots and scripts. The BBC is failing totally in its Charter Duty to perform basic journalistic research. Here is the actual script:


Heat Street can exclusively bring our readers the proof that the spamming of the petition is a magnificent 4Chan prank that the Chads and Stacys of the BBC and liberal media swallowed whole.  Heat Street does the basic journalistic work that the BBC failed to do:

Here are 4Chan boasting about their work on the petition

Posts include:

Almost fifty thousand signatures from Vatican City


They’ll look at the IPs and wonder how the fuck people from north Korea and the Vatican are voting


mfw we are playing 4D chess and everyone assumes we are anime shitposters


Most online petitions are fraudulent as fuck anyway due to the lack of any verification needed and the fact that you can make a petition over anything.

Anyone remember the petition by /jp/ to ban normalf*gs and janitors? Something to that effect anyway.



How long until they blame Putin’s hackers for it?


We can post screenshots of the code 4Chan and anonymous are using to hack Parliament’s petition. Why couldn’t the BBC – or Parliament’s IT services google the thing themselves?

It was not, as suggested, ‘people from outside the UK’ signing – it was simple hacker scripts.

By Sunday afternoon in the UK, the national broadcaster deigned to report that Parliament was investigating the petition for fraud.

Other liberal media scions also pounced on the petition.

But 4Chan’s posters had set up scripts and bots to add fake names to the petition at an impossible rate, spamming it with unlikely addresses in ‘Ghana’ and elsewhere.

The BBC seemed unwilling to let go, though:

Since the media were too stupid to see that these were not “signatures from outside of the UK” but in fact simply bot scripts, 4chan and Gamergate hero Sargon of Akkad helpfully posted shots of the spam scripts’ results on Twitter:

The mainstream media outside the BBC were blushingly reporting the petition ‘may have been manipulated’ without acknowledging that 4Chan and anonymous had been online for 24 hours boasting about their prank:

Tech sites, unlike the news media in the supine UK, have seen 4 Chan break an online petition before. They took over the Time 100

This post explains in detail the methodology for the 4Chan auto-voters which can cycle through a range of fake names to avoid detection:

Another challenge faced by the autovoters was that if you voted for the same person more often than once every 13 seconds, your IP would be banned from voting. However, it was noticed that you could cycle through votes for other candidates during those 13 seconds. The autovoters quickly adapted to take advantage of this loophole interleaving up-votes for moot with down-votes for the competition ensuring that no candidate received a vote more frequently than once every 13 seconds, while maximizing the voting leverage.

One of the first autovoters was MOOTHATTAN.  This is a simple moot up-voter that will vote for moot about 100 times per minute. (Warning, just by visiting that site, you’ll invoke the autovoter – so if you don’t want to hack the vote, you should probably skip the visit).

Below are screengrabs of the ‘Mooter’ program 4Chan and anonymous have used to easily flood Parliament’s petition with fakes. Not only should the parliamentary petition committee junk debate on the 4chan prank petition, they should hire some real hackers to secure the Parliamentary Petitions website, or they may find they have a, uh, frog in their throats.
