This meme war was started due to an Action by the 24 hour news outlet known as CNN or Cable News Network. Current information indicates that on July 4th, 2017 CNN threatened to DOX a reddit user posting a MEME that the President of the United States(Donald Trump) liked. This in turn as set such things as #CNNBlackmail on twitter and the retaliatory creation of MEMEs across the internet attacking CNN. As time went on Twitter started censoring trending.
(A)The trend of #CNNBlackmail went on twitter after this blockage for another 26 hours with an average of 20K tweets at minimum which would have consistently made it the top trending item. Voat would then go on for 3 more days with non-stop memes in most major subs. CNN memes now seem to be a more permenant part of everyday voat and the internet as a whole. As of today 07-15-2017 the great meme war II seems to be still going on but in lul trying to create a new traction meme.
(A)Some Internet Users are Doxxing other CNN employees.
(A)Julian Assange Referencing Criminal Code to CNN's action
(A)andrew kaczynski also known as CNN KFile's talking about HanAssholeSolo's apology/concession
(A)Definition of Dox:
to publicly identify or publish private information about (someone) especially as a form of punishment or revenge
(A)Outside of Andrew Kaczynski being blamed for threatening someone it seems Chris Cuomo at CNN also possibly did this then back tracked quickly.
(A)Archive of the threat of DOXING by Andrew Kaczynski.
This is significance to voat due to mass postings and general consensus across the subs. Thus majority of the Front page for July 5th, 2017 is in regards to this event.
Need alternative links for posterity in case of censorship. Please add example references to this as a collection of examples of the MEME War.
Need direct reference and backup of CNN offense.
