AATTP EXCLUSIVE: Ringleader of Trolls Who ‘Goated’ Obama Lynching Facebook Speaks Out!

Recently, a herd of rowdy Facebook trolls had an answer to a bigoted right-wing Facebook page’s bigoted depiction of President Obama being lynched. That answer? Goats! Lots and lots of goats!

After seemingly half of the internet reported the hateful image on America the next Generation‘s page to a stream of Facebook’s refusals to remove the page (or even the image) from existence, the “Busta Army” swooped into action to right that particular wrong–and what better way than to give the page a facelift?

1 (2)

A member of the troll “army” infiltrated the page and was handed the proverbial keys by the now-ousted page administrator, who they promptly removed from uh…service. After that, it was time for The GOATENING.


The act of replacing hatred with Caprines caused mass jubilation across the internet, with the newly-“goated” page gaining more “likes” than it could ever hope to have otherwise in the process. The original page administrator moved on, cleverly adding a “2” to the name and has since spent a good bit of time complaining about horned animals for some reason.


While many have reported on the “goating,” some agencies have gotten the story completely wrong. Addicting Info, for example, in a piece written by Stephen D. Foster Jr, falsely pushes the claim that the page was hacked. Even the most loose definition of “hack” would be to gain access to something without authorization by way of a computer. Since there was no unauthorized access, no crime committed, or even a single broken Facebook policy–Addicting Info’s insistence that the page was hacked seems more than slightly unreasonable. Despite a number of people correcting their decision to falsely accuse multiple “goaters” of a felony, the story has still not been corrected as of the time of writing.


Because of the false reporting, Busta Troll, the ringleader in this particular goatfest, has been receiving some incredibly venomous messages that originate from a false belief that he and his crew in some way committed a crime (wonder where the senders got THAT idea), so AATTP asked the troll in the limelight to say something about the goating, the false allegations, and what it truly means to be a “paid liberal troll.”

Busta was kind enough to comply, and it turns out that being a troll isn’t all goats and laughter. These underappreciated folks work hard daily to educate, dispel lies, and expose hatred in an entertaining manner!

I often wonder if the path to becoming a liberal troll is the same for everyone that it was for me. I sat down one day, clicked ‘create a page’, named it Busta Troll, and set off to change the world and rid it of the hate and lies being spread by modern ‘conservatives’.

Its been quite a ride, and recently the car seems to have stopped on what is one of the favorite pastimes of the modern liberal troll, the goating.

Let me first start by saying that I had nothing to do with the creation of goating, nor did I pioneer its methods or philosophies. The people who started this are elite trolls I admire very much whose tutelage I cherish. Their methods, while different from mine, are beautiful to behold and their dedication is astonishing to watch.

The most recent goating, the goating of the page that posted the lynching picture of our president, was the equivalent to a troll of winning the lottery. As the original page admin stated, he simply gave the page keys to a member of my team, a very talented troll we will only call ‘Ranger’, so that he may…wait for it…rid the page of trolls.

It was almost as if this goating was meant to happen.

When AATTP picked the story up I was of course more than happy to be the face of the goating, because whose face is a cartoon troll exactly? What we didn’t expect was the negative impact being called ‘hackers’ would bring. I’ve been bombarded with new likes, marriage proposals and compliments, even though I had little to do with the actual goating, but what I didn’t expect was the amount of people upset that we had broken the law to pull this off and that we were giving liberals a bad name by stealing, even if it was from conservative bullies with no regard for common decency.

Let me make this clear, as clear as AATTP has tried to make it for those of you who still don’t understand or won’t change your stories for fear of looking like you were wrong.

You are wrong. We broke no laws, we stole nothing, we haven’t even violated Facebook’s terms of service.

We’re trolls, not criminals.

As a liberal troll it’s always fun to be a part of something so rewarding, because it’s not always so peachy keen. When I started my page I was determined to not attack conservatives with my trolling as much as it was to educate them about the lies they were being told. It took some time to come to grips with the fact that reconciling our two sides politically is never going to happen. Simple fact, articulate paragraphs and easily googleable truths were met overwhelmingly with instant deletion and bans. If you weren’t calling them names they wanted nothing to do with you.

Most of what we do has little to do with infiltrating conservative pages and groups and preparing for the next goating, but it sure is fun to watch them run around for weeks in a state of paranoia questioning their loyalties to each other and going into lockdown after one happens…Its almost as rewarding as the goatzes themselves.

Most of what we do is find a particularly ridiculous post or meme, write something our fans can enjoy and share, screencap the whole thing and post it to our pages with the hopes that maybe just maybe one person saw it and questioned the topic for the two minutes it was up before its deletion.

We’re the division of liberal trolls, and we’re here to stay. The next time a story comes across your news feed from a page with a name like ‘Bill O’Reilly’s Anal Vibrator‘, ‘Barack Obama’s Werewolf Army‘, ‘Glen Beks‘, or of course ‘Busta Troll‘, do yourself and your liberal friends a favor and click like and share.

Trolls are great sources of information, truth, humor and camaraderie. Our fans are the most engaged on facebook. Our pages are always open for debate and comment, and we don’t pretend to be something we’re not while we’re pretending to be something we’re not.

The best part is, every so often you get invited to a good old fashioned goating, and what could possibly be better than that?

    Obama in a noose? Unfortunately, it seems a majority of Republicans love those kinds of photos, not a minority.

    There was a time when a lynch picture of a sitting president would result in an immediate prosecution. Now, thanks to a Supreme Court decision or two, it’s “protected speech,” along with all the other stochastic terrorist hate-spew that triggers wackos to go kill people.

    I _never_ go to anything on Facebook because I don’t want to support Mark Zuckerberg’s surveillance empire. But I made an exception for the goated page when it first appeared, and I haven’t laughed so hard in months. Kudos, congratulations, and may your HUMINT skills forever outwit the nitwits.

    Mighty nice racist “community” page this guy’s got… it would be a shame if someone “goated” it for him…

    There is always going to be someone that takes credit for a collective effort. There were quite a few individuals that called for this event to happen, without feeling the need to take any credit. I can think of a couple dozen of them who had been working that page long before the “Busta Army” showed up. These “goatings” are a collective thing, one for which no one individual can, or should take credit. The best trolls stay hidden anyway.

      God, you’re a pretentious fuckw@t, aren’t you. Speaking for a group of people doesn’t mean taking credit. Thus:

      “When AATTP picked the story up I was of course more than happy to be the face of the goating, because whose face is a cartoon troll exactly? What we didn’t expect was the negative impact being called ‘hackers’ would bring”

      Did you see the “we” there? It’s all throughout his statements.

      That’s not claiming credit. That’s you, Chavo, either 1. not knowing what you’re talking about or 2. attempting to ride on the coattails of the goats by insinuating you know them. Guess what – I actually do. What you wrote is bullsh*t.

    I’ve goat to admit, I goat busy that very evening, and launched quite a herd of goat-oriented yuks onto both those FB pages. I felt baaaaaaad about it…..NOT…..but I was amazed at the tremendous herd of fellow goat-ees who followed suit. Great to see how outraged people everywhere goat into the act and butted the haters back into the barn. Goat pride? Yes. Yes, I do!

    Many happy bridges to you, Busta Troll and the Goat Force. I look forward to future topsy-turvy adventures with glee.

    More goats please! Anything to rid the world of hateful people! Thank you LIberal Trolling geniuses!

  • John Struthers

    damn, FB took your site down. They don’t like legitimate liberal GOATS!

  • Andrew Rei

    They did it to the second and third attempts, too LMAO

    Let me just say that anyone working for Soros is fucked from the start. Axelrod pays much, much better AND pays on time. On the 15th of the month, Axelrood drops off my the new Mercedes with a trunk full of unmarked bills. Then we have sex. He’s like clock-work. AND he’s a pretty good cuddler.

    Keep up the awesome work !!! :D

    Totes Magoats!

    Thanks for the clarification as I kept seeing posts saying something like “You turned Your page over to a Goat” but I still didn’t get that the owner had literally made someone he didn’t know a real admin of the page. That is truly dumb. But it sure has been fun watching these fascist baggers turning and twisting in the wind. LOL

    • https://www.facebook.com/hbeeinc Paul Day

      They really are that stupid. It’s as easy as having a plausible alt and saying “libtard” a lot on their page.

  • https://www.facebook.com/bruce.arvidsonii Bruce L Arvidson II

    The original owner of the page has tried to create 2 more pages, they have Goated too. LOL.

    • http://hypercreations.com/david David Topping

      ..actually, no, the original admin does indeed still control a second page, but he unpublished it due to almost incessant posting of goats and goat comments on that page. The “second” and “third” incarnations are just “spin-offs” (copy-cats, really) of the original goated page, as has been explained by Ranger, Busta, or whoever is running the original page.
