Nowadays, that's a good question. Given how, um, engaged Hillary is in the world's various crises, and what a hands-off attitude Trump takes in comparison (especially if it benefits Putin) toward anyone we aren't already fighting today, that distinction is not at all clear anymore.

112. Looked to me that it was asked as a question by Assange, It was not a statement.

Now here is what I found on the internet about it. Hopefully it will clear up some of the confusion that the OP caused.
What does it mean?

The brackets, known as “echoes”, are a far-right invention, to identify Jewish Twitter users, so that other antisemites can then attack them online. The raising of a rabble is not limited to antisemites – misogynist fury can likewise manifest in epic crowds, virtual-baying. But there is something about ((())) that is uniquely unnerving, the secrecy conferring a sense of a developed and organised network of hate. Jonathan Weisman, deputy Washington editor of the New York Times, described how it played out for him following the publication of his article on Donald Trump. A Twitter user triple bracketed him in a tweet, and he was subjected to a sudden hurricane of abuse, images of concentration camps and death threats that has yet to abate.
Who else uses it?

Old-school white supremacists have new allies: the self-styled alternative right, or “alt-right”, promulgators of online viciousness, much of it racist in theme. They cite the rise of Trump as a key factor in their growing confidence, as well as the refugee crisis. They think of themselves as modern, which, to give them credit, they are, since they have managed to weaponise the internet, turning virtual threats into real-life fear. Their tools are hacking and doxing (publishing personal details, home addresses and other whereabouts, of victims), and often just marshalling huge amounts of hostility on to a single target.
Why are people putting the echo symbol around their own name?

Those who want to show solidarity with Jewish people who have been attacked, and indeed, Jewish people generally. The Twitter user @andrewcb explains: “It’s a bit like the urban legend about the Danish king wearing a yellow star during the occupation.” As the myth has it, King Christian X wore a star in response to Nazi requests that he solve his “Jewish problem”, and all the Danish people followed suit, which led the identifier to become meaningless.

Nothing makes the alt-right angrier than the puckish appropriation of a tag, trope or practice in order to mock it and show solidarity with those it is intended to offend. Reclaiming symbols, words and hashtags isn’t new: recent examples include the #1in5Muslims hashtag, in response to the Sun’s radically unintelligent reading of a poll, and #DistractinglySexy, in which female scientists responded to Tim Hunt’s evaluation of women in his field by tweeting portraits of themselves at work in the lab or outdoors. Those women came in for some incredible abuse – as vilified for objecting to Hunt as he was for his original remark. On the internet, sexism and objecting to sexism are basically interchangeable, in terms of what they cost. But they did it anyway.
So, should you put brackets round your name?

Yes, you should. I’m going to.

Direct Call to Action.

I can't believe this is supposed to be assumed as anti-semitic symbol.

Activists from the start of the internet from my neck of the woods (in the SF Bay Area) used it often and frequently, particularly during the run up to the Iraq War, before then it was the WTO, and all manner of huge events to attend or protest.

Maybe the exclamation point will be next..

Assange denied the allegations in a statement , saying: "Hislop has distorted, invented or misremembered almost every significant claim and phrase. In particular, 'Jewish conspiracy' is completely false, in spirit and in word.


The phrase you place in between quote marks, on the other hand, does not occur in the article.

Neo nazis started using the (((brackets around a name))) years ago to "identify" a Jew. Then they did develop browser extensions to make it easier. Recently people started using them for many things to confuse and ridicule the nazis as a sort of push back. If that what you meant, I apologise for the misinterpretation.

99. That's what I read, also. It was how they attacked the reporter (Julia Ioffe, GQ)

who did a Melania dRumpf story that dRumpf didn't like. So they mobilized a ton of nazi post-ers to get her

http://forward.com/news/breaking-news/339709/journalist-flooded-with-neo-nazi-hate-after-writing-melania-trump-profile/

They used the nazi (((echo))), now some anti-right twitter users are self-tagging with it.

"Known as the “echo,” the symbol consists of three parentheses around a Jewish person’s name, for example, (((Efrem))). According to Mic, the symbol was first introduced in 2014 by a right-wing website The Right Stuff in their podcast called The Daily Shoah, and serves as a bat signal of sorts. Or as a neo-Nazi said to Goldberg, “It’s closed captioning for the Jew blind.”

A Google Chrome browser plugin, known as the “Coincidence Detector,” facilitates the search by automatically placing an echo on Jewish-sounding names and organizations and replacing the word Israel as users browse the web. For example, Israel appears as (((Our Greatest Ally))), and every (((Cohen)))), (((Katz))) and (((Weinberg))) were also sandwiched in parentheses."


http://www.haaretz.com/jewish/news/1.722964


Mel and l'il donnie of course refused to condemn their nazi 'fans', saying that Ioffe is to blame, because her words 'provoked' the nazis.

http://forward.com/news/breaking-news/340872/melania-trump-jewish-journalist-provoked-neo-nazi-death-threats/

Of course, none of the dRumpfenfuhrer's words on the campaign provoked any of the violence his fans have been engaging in.

I find it suspicious, that anyone who seems to run afoul of the MIC, gets accused of rape, or worse. See Scott Ritter, of Iraq chemical weapons fame--said there weren't any, and it wasn't what the MIC or Bush wanted to hear. Suddenly he's a rapist, or child molester, my memory fails.

Anyway, an accusation isn't a conviction.

They may try to publicly backtrack but once you spot the pattern, there's no going back


>tribalist
just that word enough tells me they knew it means Jews. "the tribe" as they call themselves.

I think this was strategic. And intentional. Assange no doubt knows how much the Jews hate being named. So he did it to tell them, back off, or I'll name you FURTHER. I daresay he is sitting on so much dirty material about so many powerful people. This may even have been aimed at a particular Jew or Jews....

Their .com home page advertises "free nude cams and live sex cams". Now, while I don't have anything in particular against voyerism, porn, or sex cams, this does suggest that one might want to be careful in assigning weight to content that is found there.

46. Someone at wikileaks wanted to draw attention to Jews, or people in solidarity with Jews,

criticising them. They seemed to think saying "most of our critics are Jewish, or are against hatred of Jews" was a good way of countering them. At best, it looks like "don't pay attention to them, they're Jews or bleeding-heart liberals"; at worst, it's "the evil Jews are out to get Wikileaks!!!".

Wikileaks Posts and Deletes Anti-Semitic Tweet as it Does Putin’s Bidding For Trump

https://heatst.com/politics/wikileaks-posts-and-deletes-anti-semitic-tweet-as-it-does-putins-bidding-for-trump/

Wikileaks and Julian Assange rode in at the obvious bidding of Vladimir Putin today, to assist Donald Trump, Putin’s candidate, being run by fixer Paul Manafort. As Tim Kaine stunned the world with a mighty speech, Julian Assange tried to release some minor DNC leaks that looked anti-Bernie – although everybody had pretty much figured out that Debbie Wasserman Schulz wasn’t playing fair long ago.

For a long time Putin has been running Wikileaks. His attempt to use them today to release DNC emails was further evidence that Trump is Russia’s pet candidate.

However, Julian Assange, long known to have said many publicly anti-semitic things, and who is widely believed to tweet the @wikileaks account – as a former biographer reported – ruined his day’s press by tweeting and then deleting this amazingly anti-semitic tweet:

The (( )) symbol is used by Jews and their supporters to fight back against the anti-semitism of the alt-right.

Many liberals on Twitter who had previously supported Assange were mortified. Brianna Wu kindly showed me the second, double-down tweet of racism from a presumably blind drunk Assange:

On being challenged about not leaking anything against Putin, wikileaks / Assange replied they/he had done so, but linked to a site full of pro-Putin propaganda leaks:

76. WikiLeaks Jew Hatred

Back in 2011, WikiLeaks’ Julian Assange denied he was antisemitic, after reportedly making some statements that suggested he might just be.

Julian Assange has blamed a number of journalists for a “Jewish” conspiracy against his whistleblowing website, WikiLeaks, according to the editor of Private Eye, Ian Hislop.

In the latest issue of the satirical magazine, Hislop writes that Assange called him on 16 February to complain about an article on Israel Shamir, a WikiLeaks associate in Russia who has denied the Holocaust and has published a string of antisemitic articles.

“He said that I and Private Eye should be ashamed of ourselves for joining in the international conspiracy to smear WikiLeaks,” Hislop writes. “The piece was an obvious attempt to deprive him and his organisation of Jewish support and donations, he said angrily, and he knew perfectly well who had written it. He then named a Fleet Street hack who had nothing to do with it.”

Hislop adds that Assange went on to claim that Private Eye was “part of a conspiracy led by the Guardian which included journalist David Leigh, editor Alan Rusbridger and John Kampfner from Index on Censorship – all of whom ‘are Jewish'”.

“I pointed out that Rusbridger is not actually Jewish, but Assange insisted that he was ‘sort of Jewish’ because he was related to David Leigh (they are brothers-in-law),” writes Hislop.

“When I doubted whether his Jewish conspiracy would stand up against the facts, Assange suddenly conceded the point. ‘Forget the Jewish thing’.”

I especially like the 'excuse' of "I haven't seen this, so..." and "oh this is another anti-Semitic dog-whistle" being used by those who have used them themselves. Mindboggling!


When the "attacker" is right-wing, or disliked for one reason or another, then suddenly all these "experts" on anti-Semitism emerge, but when other instances happen, those of us who actually do have some expertise in the field, are shouted down as "playing the anti-Semitism card (sometimes the 'Holocaust card')".

Didn't know Putin had co-opted Wikileaks, which is a shame. If he tweets from their account all the time (and he is not above it at all), could it have not been Putin who posted the anti tweets using Assange's account?

107. Wiki Exposes Hillary's crooked DWS

And suddenly he's anti-semitic and a rapist, without a trial on either.

I'm just amazed that anyone falls for this.

Glad Sanders voters were vindicated--we knew she was cheating all along, and we knew the media was putting narratives in place to help defer the focus on the cheating, and make it look like Sanders campaign problems, instead of corruption at the highest level of the DNC.

And then Hillary embraces it, embraces the corruption by appointing her to the campaign.

Tribalist/Tribalism

Jewish Tribalism, Jewish Racism, Israel and Zionism: Dr. David Duke Responds to a Christian Anti-Zionist

Three brackets:

Why are there triple brackets around names on social media?
http://www.newstatesman.com/politics/media/2016/06/why-are-there-triple-brackets-around-names-social-media

"an anti-Semitic Google plugin which was deleted from the Google store this month. “Coincidence Detector” would search web pages for names that it identified as Jewish and add three brackets to either side of their names.

The extension’s users would then organise online attacks against those highlighted by the plugin. Jonathan Weisman, a journalist at the New York Times, was the target of one such attack and wrote a piece about the harassment in which he said “much of it [came] from self-identified Donald J Trump supporters”.

114. So Wikileaks tweet did not use the code-word "Tribalist" in his tweet?

Very difficult to explain that neo-Nazi code word for Jews away.

116. Tribalist has several different connotations,

 

so does the use of brackets.

I think you are nitpicking. This attack is nonsensical at best.

117. Enlighten me on the positive uses of these neo-Nazi code words.

I think you are in denial. Your defense of obvious anti-Semitic memes and tropes is naive at best.

I do want to note that I stand corrected on source of tweets. May not be Assange himself but an underling.

135. Why Thank You

Anyone running afoul of the MIC, the DHS, or the security state, seems to be immediately labeled a sexual predator.

And no, I don't think the guy hates Jewish people--he's probably not keen about those who disagree with him, or demonize him in the media, but that's incidental to the issue.

I've found you either like being informed about the untoward things going on, or you want it all hidden away, particularly when it makes your corporate candidate look bad. It's tragic Hillary supporters can't accept the wrong that was done, and continue to try to use some kind of kitty toy or the other, to distract. Nope. Not working, and it only makes you look worse, here at the HU. (Hillary Underground)

Evidently this is a mean-spirited effort to throw mud at Julian Assange with no real evidence. Moreover the know-nothing bully DU echo chamber on this thread is toxic...shame on you!!

122. Yup:

From a Facebook poster:

"The tweet is really easy to misinterpret if you don't spend an inordinate amount of time on Twitter. There's a certain clique of sycophantic journalists who only suck up to politicians lest they lose access (so naturally, they hate Wikileaks for making life so difficult for their benefactors). Many of them have taken to co-opting a neo-Nazi signifier in their handle as a weird show of solidarity. Wikileaks was merely pointing out that by them doing this, the imagery now is more closely related to self-identification in their clique (most who are not Jewish) than the original meaning."

Clumsily done and ill-advised on Wikileaks part, for sure. Assange (apparently) walked into it, as can be seen in the lack of context (an important missing Tweet, for one thing) in the OP.

124. I doubt he cares.

It is obvious some will do anything, and I mean anything, to deny anti-Semitism. So, when something like this comes along, it is no surprise those who rush to say "NO! This is not anti-Semitism!" It may not be "the big picture" but it is certainly part of the canvas. Anti-Semitism is one of those bigotries many have no real issue with and therefore, are selective in their outrage and condemnation.

131. People are putting ((( echoes ))) around their names on Twitter – here’s why

People are putting ((( echoes ))) around their names on Twitter – here’s why
If you’ve been on Twitter lately, you’ve probably noticed people with brackets around their name.
If not, it basically looks like this: ((( Ashitha Nagesh )))
There’s a reason for this – and it’s not immediately obvious.
People are adding the brackets – known as ‘echoes’ – to their names as part of an online anti-racist movement.

Why brackets?
For a while, white nationalists, neo-Nazis and anti-Semites – groups largely now part of the disturbing ‘alt-right’ movement – have been putting three sets of brackets around Jewish people’s surnames on Twitter.
The brackets worked like a dog whistle – other neo-Nazi followers would see it, and send that person a barrage of anti-Semitic abuse. It essentially put a virtual target on Jewish people’s heads.

I am not surprised to learn Julian Assange is a racists anti-semite.

144. I'm not buying this . .

 

can't you folks deal with Assange's actual ideas and
actions instead of engaging in character assassination?

If we had had MORE LEAKS in 2002-03 perhaps that
catastrophic war could have been avoided.

And why pick on Assange while giving Petraeus, Clapper,
Libby, Armitage, etc. a TOTALLY FREE PASS.
