just read something that claimed Nazi Bronies got their start in 2017
i hate hate hate that my first response to this was “that’s nonsense, I know for a fact that Nazi Bronies were a thing by 2011”

I don’t know anything about Nazi Bronies, but I see all the time movements and such that the press claims were “started on 4Chan in 2015” when I know that the org in some form has been around since the 1980s, and sometimes since the 1960s.
The press in general is not very good at research, and especially on topics where people use a lot of code words and deliberate obfuscation. And where there’s not much about it on the internet.
