The over 2.2 million member subreddit r/antiwork, which was subject to a large swarm of trolls after a Fox News interview in January 2022, appears to have been infiltrated by an FBI informant who may have enabled multiple arrests in the anti-authoritarian community. Laurelai Bailey, an infamous former mod, has likely committed serial rape without facing any legal repercussions, and appears to actively collaborate with the FBI.
When r/antiwork mods voted to ban Bailey, they were subsequently purged from their mod status by Bailey’s friend u/TeiaRabishu, who is still the top mod. Anarchist mods say that Teia has used this as an opportunity to divert anti-work theory from its anarchist foundations and co-opt it with liberal theory instead, evidently enforcing this through FBI surveillance on the subreddit.
The alt accounts HyponoTransgirl, Bimbopolitics, and EphraelStern have all been linked to the same informant: Laurelai Bailey. Bailey is well known among the hacker community for helping the FBI charge Julian Assange and faking her own death, potentially to avoid rape charges.
The following documents show Bailey’s relations with the FBI, evidence of rape, and testimony from r/antiwork mods:
