God, can we not do the ‘leftists against gamers’ thing?
It’d be funny if a large coalition of people (read: malcontented teenagers with little to cling to but their viddy gaems for their identity) on the border of the culture war weren’t already inundated with people ready to scoop ‘em up on the Alt Right, who genuinely have fabricated a strawman (consciously or not) that matches or exceeds the most absurd satire we can pump out. Like, it’s dead-on with the cartoonish portrayals that turn up on Hurr-Durr-Gamerfate-Cringe. m
What I’m getting at here is that, ‘getting’ somebody with that level of parodic trolling isn’t a win, because these guys’ view of the left consists only of the cringiest 'real’ examples of “SJWs”. And listening to this shit and doomsaying from the Alt-Right lead to their adoption of the shitty, vapid ideology of 'lol triggered’, hentai, and dank memes.’
They’re not rekt when they fall into your trap and you play up the satire, they’re gonna genuinely believe you, and walk away going 'OH GOD THEY’RE REAL, SARGON WAS RIGHT’, because THEY’RE DUMB KIDS.
That’s not funny, that’s scary.
