#TGDN: Hashtag to power! Grassroots set up Twitter Gulag Defense Network

Twitter has been buzzing over #TGDN.  But, what is it?

Heh. It does stand for Twitter Gulag Defense Network. What exactly is that, though, and why is it needed?

Twitchy has reported extensively on the Twitter Gulag. See, dissent is only patriotic if  it doesn’t involve happy warriors pushing back against media and leftist false narratives. When that happens, Twitter libs unite to silence conservatives, by abusing the flag-spam system, in order to get their accounts suspendedJust ask Nancy Sinatra, who also gleefully took part in falsely flagging Twitter users as spam, for the oh-so-criminal act of disagreeing with her leftist ideology.

Such tactics can only be countered with more, and stronger, speech. Enter, Twitter grassroots power, baby. Todd Kincannon, who came up with the idea, explains it all.

That’s a difference between the Right and the Left. The Left seeks to silence anyone whom they deem is an “other.” The Right will, and does, protect all.

Other Twitter users weigh in with their ideas and helpful tips to get the ball rolling.

Some sound advice. #TGDN is not a guarantee of freedom from Twitter Gulag; the magic formula that results in a Gulag term is unknown to most. But, there is something to be said for strength in numbers, as well as for the vast support that a conservative network provides.

The response was instantaneous and overwhelming. Happy warriors immediately came together to try to mitigate this targeting of conservatives on Twitter.

It has been trending since yesterday! There are over 3,000 members already and the lists keep growing.

The response is so overwhelming that members need to take care to not follow too many at one time.

Bingo.

Hashtag to power is the new truth to power.

    I have been gulaged three times, every time was just tweeting to a lefty. Not trolling them, not being mean, just talking. Boom, lefties are such losers.

    • beebop1952

      I got gulaged my FIRST DAY and I am done with Twitter.

    I’ve been gulaged a few times now and for far less than what I was responding to. Ever since my last reinstatement, I’ve decided turn-around is fair play, and I hit that report spam button EVERY time I see a racist attack or a threat. I’m sick of these loons spreading their filth with nothing being done to them and when I say, “Hey, you’re a bigot and you make me sick”, I get tossed. Those days are over. I no longer mention the filth, I just hit the report button. They’ve screwed me, now it’s their turn. Is it a misuse of the button? Perhaps, but ask me if I care anymore. No, I don’t. I urge everyone to do the same for one week. More if you like. I like!

    14 Gulags for me and 4 in less than 2 weeks in December. Always after *discussions* with lefties and athiEsts (they hate it when you spell it wrong)

    SOMEONE ADD ME @IranAware Im currently in the gulag now and dont expect to be out until Tuesday at least.. I was out for 3 hours.. Ive been in a near constant fight with CAIR, as they obviously dont like me and the fact I blast them several times a day for supporting Hamas..I haven’t been live for longer than 24 hours at a time in about 2 months with my suspensions averaging 2-5 days..

    I’m not a tweeter and don’t really understand the benefit of this. If someone could explain it simply, in a few sentences I’d appreciate it. Don’t be afraid to write as if you were speaking to an old fart who is moronic at times…just sayin.

    • sybilll

      I DO tweet. A lot. But I don’t want to have to follow 3000 more people to get the gulag protection. During hot topic issues, I get overwhelmed following the few hundred that I do. Unless I am missing something, I guess I will just plea for help if I do get gulaged.

      • Liars Never Win

        Setup a list of the people you want to see and use that list instead of timeline, You need to be over 3Kish users to avoid gulag.

      The explanation is that this pervert Kincannon has set up a network to gulag people, and is using it to gulag patriots and other conservatives who don’t swallow the neocon line. http://thetrenches.us/2012/10/breaking-todd-kincannon-former-sc-gop-executive-director-in-sexting-scandal/

    Cool. My comment was posted on here. I think this *really* puts the SOCIAL in social network. I pat Todd on the back for creating such (brilliant) hysteria. I think the Twitter networks were almost crashed.

    Kincannon and his buddies have been attacking those who do not wish to join this network of his. Two are followers of mine, one of those two Sister Toldjah. WHERE IS MICHELLE MALKIN ON THIS?!?

    Leftwingwackos hate free speech. Under free speech, you can disagree with a leftwingwacko. To leftwingwackos, that is the worst evil in the world, even worse than war or genocide.

  • FIRE THEM ALL- 2014

    I got TWITMO 3 times in first week, my face book friends were following me fast, so they thought I was in some kind of program where you buy followers, then I was posting replies to people that were not following me, got it again this was the first two days I was on Twitter, the third time was for the same thing. So now I am unfollowing those who do not follow back as quickly as I can find them, and don’t reply to anyone that is not following me. At least I don’t do more than one per day of those. So what that means and I suspect they don’t really care is people who are celebrities, or news anchors don’t get many replies to their tweets from people because that will get the person tossed into the Gulag for 4 to 5 days. Even when they tell you you have been released right away, after sending a message to Twitter, it takes that long to get your account back. Face Book isn’t much better. I have 5000+ friends there, and another 1300+ subscribers, but if you go to a liberals wall and say anything they don’t like they can get your account suspended for days. So I stick to my own wall, hard for them to get you into trouble that way. Free Speech is not something liberals like unless they are doing the talking.

    never happened to me. maybe because I never reply to anyone LOL
    post something and I am done.

  • ember

    I’ve hit my twitter follow limit. Very frustrating.

  • Mikal

    I was suspended after responding to a message is that tgdn? is that flag-spam what they hell are you talking about!

  • Mikal

    Leave it to these social media nuts.If there’s a set up to get me kicked out, I don’t wasn’t to solve my own problem, isn’t that what they’re for?

  • Mikal

    So they know an issue, and instead of fixing it, they make us jump through hoops to avoid the problem THEY help create

  • NewHampshire

    Actually this Kincannon creature is having other patriots blocked. Shame on him and shame on MM for promoting this… if you disagree you get attacked. NO better than liberals?

  • NewHampshire

    Why is Malkin promoting this pervert who has been caught sexting his weenie to various women? BTW he’s having CONSERVATIVES gulaged, NOT liberals! http://thetrenches.us/2012/10/breaking-todd-kincannon-former-sc-gop-executive-director-in-sexting-scandal/
