My blog

I smash a keyboard and thoughts and feelings come out.

When will 'the left' stand up to the threat of totalitarianism?

When will 'the left' stand up to the threat of totalitarianism?

This is a plea to the grown-up and reasonable political left. I know you're out there, quietly reading and observing and waiting for the right time. Now is the right time.
On "conspiracy theories".

On "conspiracy theories".

I have been watching tech companies start to censor groups such as QAnon, and I will tell you now: This is bad. This impacts us all. Yep, I am going to defend QAnon. Not because I agree with them, but precisely because I don’t. We have a major problem with…
You can make a difference: Help Jessica get waxed.

You can make a difference: Help Jessica get waxed.

I think we can all agree that 2020 has been really tough for everyone, folx. COVID-19, job losses, deaths, unrest, destruction everywhere. Police oppression. Women still being able to do their jobs and to tweet. Children having to stay indoors and clothed. Literal murder every single day. It’s so hard…

Little Red Riding Hood, Self-ID Edition

I updated Little Red Riding Hood for 2020. I am so in trouble for this but… oh well. heh.

Ask me anything Friday

‪Thinking of doing an AMA video tomorrow. If anyone cares? 😂 ‬ Ask me a question (here or DM or email tea@teasmith.com.au and I’ll try to answer. ‬

[Téasplaining] The Ladder of Engagement

Today I’ll be introducing you to the Ladder of Engagement. This is  basically a sales funnel, but used for political purposes.  Trust the  Americans to turn the political system into a sales strategy and  self-help book (haha), but this is what Obama did with great effect.   This is a…

[Téasplaining] Intro to Reading Political Cartoons

Apparently only a handful of us attended school on that day, in the 5th Grade, where we were taught about political cartoons. So, children, let me educate you the only way I know how. With a fucktonne of swearing. Heh.

[Téasplaining] How to be a real adult with gracious winning

Replay of Friday’s stream where I (reluctantly) talked about Jameela Jamil and how hard it is to unravel. I talked about Identity Quakes, leaving cults and how it is super critical to treat anyone who realises they’ve been wrong with grace and kindness. You can’t have it both ways folks……

[Téasplaining] Nick Cave and the Creative Prison

Reply from Thursday… the stream most certainly took an entertaining turn where we basically roasted Americans for the second half. Was fun. 🙂 You know we love you, Yanks. X

[Téasplaining] Hiding in plain sight: the role of "front groups" in extremist recruitment

Hi all, On today’s stream, I referred a little bit to the Digital Organizer’s Handbook, but this time contrasting it with how Cult Techniques operate in radicalising political extremist groups, such as ISIS. I also talked about how extremist organisations – whether they are religious, political, crime or whatever else…

[Téasplaining] How online activism met MLM - an intro to the basic Playbook

Today I am going to show you one of the many digital agencies who specialise in online campaigning. I’ll walk you through one basic handbook, all of which are based on one Master Handbook based on the work of Marshall Ganz, who was the main architect behind the Obama 2008…
That super duper new friend that sees you as a "hot lead"

That super duper new friend that sees you as a "hot lead"

I’m going to be covering this a lot in the coming weeks, but here is something useful. In the lead-up to the US Election, and in these confusing and unprecedented times, stay on guard. If you make a nice new friend that is an “activist” right now, and they are…
Welcome to the Witch Trials

Welcome to the Witch Trials

Dictionary.com - yes. Dictionary DOT COM. Advocating for violence against women, under the guise of "TERF".
Téasplaining all of the fuckery is the focus for the next couple of weeks.

Téasplaining all of the fuckery is the focus for the next couple of weeks.

I’m going hard and deep on educational content in the next few weeks.  From how Online Scams & MLM work, working through the “Playbook”  used by most activist groups, to how they buy fake followers, recruit members like a cult, push bullshit and I will show everyone how the scam…
[Téasplaining] KFC and Succès de scandale (aka Why the KFC Creative Team are Geniuses)

[Téasplaining] KFC and Succès de scandale (aka Why the KFC Creative Team are Geniuses)

I know it’s easy to remember a time where outrage and “cancel culture” didn’t destroy lives, but there was a time, up until yesterday, where taking creative risks was actually considered GOOD. Remember that time? Well, here is a replay from yesterday’s stream about Marketing 101, the True Fans principle…

On-stream Brainfart Corrections, 1/infinity

Hey all, I was re-reading some Twitter docs for some upcoming stuff and I realised I have made a mistake.  I can’t remember which stream it was, but I said on-stream that Twitter had a “Co-CEO”. This is not the case. I was referring the Twitter’s board, who had the…
[Téasplaining] Why you shouldn't get your news from Madonna

[Téasplaining] Why you shouldn't get your news from Madonna

Surely this goes without saying. Don’t get your news, information, or anything other than a catchy tune from Madonna. Today’s stream, yet again, goes on various tangents, but mostly focuses on disinformation as I am planning to talk more about this over the next few months. You need the LOLs…
[Téasplaining] How to know you're arguing with a bot

[Téasplaining] How to know you're arguing with a bot

Hey all, Today’s stream is on at a UK-friendly time. Hope to see you there 🙂 In the lead-up to the election, there’s going to more and more fuckery. I’m probably going to splain a lot of this stuff in the coming weeks, so that maybe you might be more…
Would you be interested in a course on disinformation & propaganda?

Would you be interested in a course on disinformation & propaganda?

I’m wondering out loud if people/patrons would be interested in me breaking down how disinformation from both sides is made & spreads? And the tactics etc? I assume knowledge but maybe some back to basics stuff might be good? I assume that most people who follow me know some of…

A preview of the book chapters & progress

After releasing Chapter One, I am pushing through to get Chapter Two done, but thought I would show you roughly the flow of the book. These are just working titles/writing prompts/key themes but yes, I totally have a plan and good progress.
Dying by the Sword CHAPTER IS HERE

Dying by the Sword CHAPTER IS HERE

GUESS WHAT. Currently just in ePub and PDF as Kindle format has some fuckery, but I will tinker with formats as I go. Also, the navigation on the ePub file is being a prick. But it’s ready. Thank you. I am going to go spew. EDIT: Okay, I know I…
A Twitter Black Swan Event is going down.

A Twitter Black Swan Event is going down.

Hi all, I was supposed to finish Chapter 1 today, and was going to stream, but the Twitter “hack” is a major and potentially catastrophic event that requires me to sit down and do some investigative stuff. I have been saying for some time that there is some internal fuckery/corruption…
Replay of [Daily Live] The Cancellation of Noam Chomsky 😂

Replay of [Daily Live] The Cancellation of Noam Chomsky 😂

This one is firmly in the LOL pile.  With absolutely no self-awareness, the Woke Stasi are digging up dirt on every person who signed an article, co-signed by a number of very clever people and tweeting trying to cancel them all. Including known far right philosopher Noam Chomsky.  This is…

Live Replay of today's video (1 July 2020).

[Daily Live] On Reddit, Big Tech, ‘Hate’ and the Thought-Terminating Censors I’m back doing Daily Streams! In this show, I am talking about the “2000 groups banned for hate”, BLM, Antifa, Anti-Racism and all the other orgs that are using good people and good causes to do terrible things.  Join…
One Year of YouTube!

One Year of YouTube!

Realised this morning that I’ve been doing YouTube for a year.  My first live stream was SO bad! Now, I have Patrons and regular viewers and I hit the 1000 subscribers mark which is pretty fucking unreal. Seriously though, if you’re afraid, look at my progress. I spent 8 months…

Don't feed the trolls: How entryists can fuck up any online community in 3 months (and what to do about it)

You might not know this but I a) have run a digital agency for many years b) have been online for 25 years c) have run online communities and moderated for famous people for almost as long and d) understand Politics and political campaign strategies.   So…  with a few…
