The liberal left has been known for over a decade for trying to make white people feel guilty over racism and it was annoying. Now they’ve taken the level of racism and hatred of white people to such an extreme degree that it seems like they’re actually trying to promote white nationalism by making white people feel like victims. Marxist leaders are actually morally bankrupt enough to fan the flames of racism and have innocent non-whites murdered in racial violence to provoke a counter blow-back. Of course there could just be deep cover white nationalists hiding out in the SJW movements that want to spew as much anti white racism as possible to fuel a sense of white persecution that will turn into a white uprising. This is what makes the regressive left regressive. They’ve been on a hard downward spiral in recent years of becoming more extreme and alienating everyone possible from their movement.

Several weeks ago from the time this was written, The Yankee Marshal started having a semi coherent meltdown against Iraq Veteran 8888 one Youtube where he accused Iraq Veteran of taking money from the NRA to promote them and posting paid promotions for guns without disclosing that. I could have missed other videos where Yankee Marshal talks more about this because he didn’t have much of an argument, or there’s just no reason to think that those accusations are true. I don’t know if Iraq Veteran is being paid to promote the NRA, but if he is I hope he has disclosed this in a way that it can be easily found.
I like both channels and I don’t have a side that I want to pick, and it seems like Yankee Marshal has just been a total prick. I’m not going to let Iraq Veteran off easy though. He made a video after the accusations where he was rightfully angry at the accusations and I’m very sympathetic to whatever he went through on social media because of it. From what I saw, I don’t think Yankee Marshal is out on a warpath to bring down Iraq Veteran, which is good. I don’t know if any accusations are true and I’m assuming they aren’t. However, in that video Iraq Veteran said that he has never told anyone to join the NRA, which is not true. I’ve seen plenty of his videos where he encouraged it. His reason is that the NRA is our largest voice and so we should support them even though they’re run by scumbags. My position on the NRA has changed since they sold out their members with the bump stock bill. I only have a minor sticking point with Iraq Veteran and Yankee Marshal’s actions were unacceptable.
I will continue to watch both channels, assuming that Yankee Marshal doesn’t decide to go out in a blaze of glory on some foolish Internet warpath.
This article points out an apparent vulnerability with the Let’s Encrypt certificate authority for requesting free SSL encryption certificates. The process of securing websites is automated by using their Certbot application that automatically installs certificates and configures web servers when a new site is added. FOXDEV uses this service. The asserted vulnerability with LE certificates is the ability to get a certificate for a phishing or scam website. This isn’t a true vulnerability and LE isn’t giving criminals much more then they had before.
When a criminal orders a free SSL certificate from LE to use for a website, all they’re getting is an encryption certificate from a trusted authority that won’t alert browsers. It displays a green padlock in the browser, but this is a problem with user behavior, not a problem with the service itself. The problem can come up if a criminal makes a sub domain like this to use for a scam site: user-authentication.paypal.com.4433.service.example.com or paypal.com.4433.service.example.com. It appears to be a subdomain of paypal.com. Sub domains like this have already been in use by criminals to make websites look legitimate by including a real domain within a sub domain. These domains can be used with unencrypted websites. Most websites have been unencrypted until recently. Before LE was available, criminals could still buy a certificate from one of the authorities. They could even buy a wild card certificate and make an unlimited number of fraudulent sub domains. The only advantage that criminals have now is the ability to request certificates for free. Since they could still buy a wild card certificate before, this isn’t much of an advantage.
The solution to this problem is in reeducating user behavior. Big businesses have bragged on their websites about the security of their websites and directed users to look for the padlock icon to verify that the site they were accessing was real. Even before LE, any criminal could have bought a certificate for a fraudulent domain and used it to generate the same padlock icon. We need to educate users that HTTPS only encrypts their access and they still need to verify the last levels of the domain properly.
