Anti #GamerGate Journalist Arrested For Cyberstalking, Harassing Ex-Girlfriend
(Last Updated On: October 20, 2017)

31-year-old Juan Thompson from St. Louis, Missouri has been arrested by the FBI for harassment, cyberstalking and making death threats as a way to get back at his ex-girlfriend. Juan Thompson was originally a writer for The Intercept, until he was fired back in early 2016 for fabricating stories in order to push an agenda, as reported by Mashable.

Before being fired from The Intercept, Thompson was responsible for the piece “Online, Black Writers Confront Racist Backlash” published back in May of 2015, which ventured to point out racism in online social media. Thompson also took that opportunity to take digs at #GamerGate, writing…

“The online racism directed toward Butler and other black writers is similar, in its scope and severity, to the online misogyny exposed by the Gamergate controversy last year. Many people were shocked to read about the torrent of misogynist hate directed at video game developer Zoe Quinn after a jilted ex-boyfriend falsely accused her, in a blog post, of having used sex to advance in the gaming community. The threats got so bad that Quinn eventually fled her home out of fear for her safety.”

These claims of #GamerGate being a misogynistic harassment campaign were debunked by an FBI investigation, and several reports investigating the hashtag.

Even still, Thompson wasn’t afraid to run with the narrative until he got fired for it.

Recently he’s been charged with cyberstalking and harassing his ex-girlfriend. According to ABC News

“Juan Thompson, 31, is accused of what federal prosecutors called a “campaign to harass and intimidate.” He’s charged in New York with cyberstalking a New York City woman by communicating threats in the woman’s name. Prosecutors said Thompson appears to have made those threats “as part of a sustained campaign to harass and intimidate” the woman after their romantic relationship ended.”

Thompson made at least eight death threats to Jewish community centers, schools and the Anti-Defamation League.

According to the New York Post, Juan Thompson also attempted to use revenge porn as a way to get back as his ex. They explain…

“He also e-mailed her naked photos of herself and threatened to expose them publicly, according to the papers.”

One thing that should be made clear is that Mediate and ABC News clarified that Juan Thompson is not the prime suspect in the original bomb threats sent to Jewish community centers and the Anti-Defamation League. They believe he’s a copycat, and has been using the news about the Jewish death threats as a way to get back at his girlfriend. He’s been attempting to frame her for the threats and get her arrested.

Despite the evidence and the charges, Thompson has a message at the top of his Twitter feed defending himself and his actions that reads…

Thompson is yet another journalist and media personality who has been charged with a serious crime that has ties to #GamerGate. Before Thompson there was Jian Ghomeshi, and later there was Matt Hickey, the latter of which is facing a lawsuit from the Attorney General and facing multiple counts of rape and sexual assault.

More recently, another anti-#GamerGate journalist, Jamie Kilstein was forced to resign from Citizen Radio based on accusation of sexual misconduct. This followed on Devin Faraci, another anti-#GamerGate journalist and male feminist, who also had to resign due to accusations of sexual assault.

As reported here before, there has been a growing trend of male feminists in the Social Justice Warrior community who have been involved with misogynistic behavior and many claims of sexually abusing women.

    Get anally raped!

  • Anti-GG/SJWs with skeletons in their closet shocker.

  • StolenEyes

    It appears he’s now been charged with sending bomb threats to Jewish Centres in New York while trying to frame his ex-girlfriend for it. Scumbag. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-39157934

  • Freeman

    Another one bites the dust.

  • RichardGristle

    Guy seems like a complete dillhole, not that I have much love for folks like the Anti-Defamation League. It’s just good to see that these snakes are getting to see that their actions have consequences.

  • Disqusted

    Just wait until Trump starts arresting kid rapers in higher places. I expect a huge amount of anti-GG to get busted for that, especially the mainstream media that keeps trying to suppress the kid raping. Sarquasar already allegedly had a convicted pedo moderating her live stream a while back.

  • durka durka

    When this finally stops happening, we can make a video showcasing all those dipshits with what they furiously and autisticly wrote about GG and then quickly jump to showing their demise.

    There cant be many more left, right?

    • There are still many more left.

    • Pesty

      “When this finally stops happening”

      Look, we can’t wait that long to put out some catalogs of this shit. I mean, if we did then we’d be filing the stories from a Mars colony.

    The projection is strong in this one.

    Anti-Gamergate: The Hypocrisy Continues…

  • Keystone

    I’m not even at a loss for words any more. All of these anti-GG/Male feminists/SJW/Game “Journalists” are the same rotten, despicable excuses for humans.

    I know that’s a huge sweeping generalization, but this just keeps happening. I mean seriously, every month it’s another one of these goons who get exposed as having a cemetery’s worth of skeletons in their closet. And it’s the same fucking people.

    Every. Single. Time.

    • Fear Me I Am Free

      Is it though? Most are hypocritical scum who make sweeping generalizations about Gamergate.

    • Disqusted

      Because the people who are most eager to point the fingers at others are usually the ones desperately trying to distract from themselves.

  • anopolis

    sounds like a real cool dude…well cept for the part where hes a fat douchebag

  • Fear Me I Am Free

    How many GGers who aren’t hated by most of GG have been arrested for bullshit like this? 1.

    Ralph and his was for public drunkenness and punching a cop. I love how SJWs think they are morally superior.

    • Disqusted

      And guess the only one that seemed to make mainstream headlines.

    • jlenoconel

      Well, Milo did say some questionable shit, but never got arrested for it.

    • Matthew

      Well they do say that people who virtue signal do it on the basis of feelings of personal guilt; that it’s done to assuage feelings of personal guilt in other aspects of their lives, or to hide there own crimes in the very area they are protesting (the classic “me thinks the lady doth protest to much” scenario).

  • Hawk Hopper

    This guy is freaking fascinating especially now that fake news and hoax hate crimes have entered the meme big leagues.

    It’s also wild that The Intercept, which tried to make itself stand out from the status quo of the corporate media, did all the things the corporate media does: It’s owned by a billionaire, it pushes fake news, and it has placed the noose of identity politics around its neck. One of the reasons The Intercept hired Thompson is because when it launched, they said they wanted a diverse set of writers, but like the corporate media, had mainly white male writers, so they hired Thompson. This is a bad move they keeps stabbing them, especially when other news sites found that Thompson was making shit up for his stories.

    From one article I read:

    The Intercept hasn’t taken down Thompson’s stories. But the site has corrected four of them, retracted the one about Scott Roof and attached notes to at least fifteen others, warning readers about quotations its researchers couldn’t confirm.

    and

    The Intercept’s story-by-story review of Thompson’s work leaves some sections of his writing still standing. Often, it’s the work pulled from other sources and cited.

    That’s bad just by itself, but since the threats against the Jewish Centers, the Intercept has been very self satisfied with itself that right wingers were behind the threats… only for it to turn out that one of their own, Thompson, may has been linked, even if he is only a copy cat, to these threats.

    And to top it all off, he used the “cyberviolence” narrative in regards to non-victims like Zoe Quinn and then he gets BUSTED FOR DOING EXACTLY THAT TO SOME OTHER WOMAN.

    It’s been a hilarious morning and afternoon. Keep on truckin’.

      ” he gets BUSTED FOR DOING EXACTLY THAT TO SOME OTHER WOMAN.”

      Well he probably thought if he white knighted hard enough he would get a “good guy” quick fuck or something.
