Who is Acyn?

I see post after post linking to tweets from some user named Acyn. Most seem to retweeting some RW talking point with little context. What am I missing?

2. Really?

All I see them posting are left wing points and mockery of right wing figures.

3. If the person you're thinking of is

https://twitter.com/Acyn ,

then I don't get a righty impression. There are a bunch of "righties saying the quiet parts out loud" clips, but judging by who he or she chooses to retweet, it ain't anybody friendly to the right.

4. Acyn doesn't retweet RW talking points.

In fact he's very anti-trump and anti-republican!

10. Actually he does retweet RW talking heads. But only to make sport of them. Funny fucking stuff

There are A LOT of DU'ers who don't understand that concept, who get all twisted sideways when somebody posts a crazy assed RWer saying stuff that deserves to be seen and deserved to be mocked.

They see the RW personage pop up and automatically accuse some swell good Democrat of being a Trumper.

I feel deep sorrow for those not in on the mockery. It is one of the finer things in life!

5. He watches crazy extremists so we don't have to. Very liberal.

He's comparable to Ron Filipkowski and Aaron Rupar

6. Maybe they are mocking RWNJs

But it wasn’t clear to me. It seemed to be just retweets without qualifiers. But, thanks for easing my mind.

9. He's an Internet Hooligan!

His name is Acyn Torabi and he monitors right-wing media and such for flubs, hypocrisy and other nefarious practices. He then posts them on his Twitter feed. He is absolutely not a right-winger. Think of him as Media Matters but with tweets.
