messages to the public

I’m not in the mood to post today, and I need to go off-topic.

Yesterday a gunman opened fire at a local pizza place under the belief that it was connected to a made-up conspiracy theory spread by far-right neo-Nazis through Reddit, 4chan, and social media.

A close friend of mine is a manager at a nearby business and had to lock down his workplace and protect customers.

I like Comet Ping-Pong. I could have easily been there. I can’t go out to eat anymore without running the risk of being shot by internet-bred white nationalist extremists.

To anyone who says that online hate speech, abuse, and harassment don’t mean anything, this is it. The lives of people I love are being endangered by violent supremacists who have hijacked public forums to spread a message of hate and fear – and are willing to open fire at a random pizzeria to prove it.

This is the disgusting end-game of years of seething white male entitlement. First it was just pick-up artists who convinced themselves the world was owed to them. Then it was Gamergate telling themselves that they owned culture. Now it’s armed gunmen showing up at my doorstep because they believe so deeply in this sick, fucked-up worldview that they learned through online hate speech.

It’s not “just the internet.” It’s not “the trolls.” Words and actions have consequences.

If you can’t speak up against this, you stand for nothing.

Regular content resumes tomorrow.

The Consulate is asking the public’s assistance in locating eight individuals believed to be renegade ringleaders. These criminals are extremely dangerous. Contact an Honorable enforcer if you have any information concerning these individuals.

PIA NALAAR, also known by the criminal alias “Renegade Prime,” is a middle-aged female human with dark hair. She is the known leader of the renegade movement, and she is wanted for multiple counts of arson and disturbing the peace. She may be in possession of unlicensed inventions and explosives.

CHANDRA NALAAR is an adult female human with red hair. She is the daughter of the renegade leader, Pia Nalaar. She is wanted for breaking and entering government property, aiding and abetting a known criminal, and multiple counts of arson. She is believed to be in possession of numerous incendiary devices.

OVIYA PASHIRI is an elderly female human with gray hair. She is wanted for breaking and entering government property, and she is believed to be in possession of multiple unlicensed and unregistered lifecraft inventions of her own making.

LILIANA VESS is an adult female human with black hair. She is wanted for destruction of public property and contempt for Consulate authorities.

JACE BELEREN is an adult male human with brown hair. He is wanted for destruction of public property and evasion of Consulate authorities.

NISSA REVANE is an adult female elf with brown hair. She is wanted for destruction of public property and disturbance of local flora. She is believed to be in possession of unlicensed eyewear that make her eyes appear to glow green.

GIDEON JURA is an adult male human with brown hair. He is wanted for destruction of public property, unlicensed use of inventions, and assault of Consulate authorities and enforcers.

An UNKNOWN broad-framed criminal seen only wearing a large hooded cloak is wanted for destruction of public property, conspiracy against the Consulate, evasion of authorities, and aiding and abetting known renegades. This criminal should be considered highly dangerous.
