Dateline: Clown World


Not pictured: the temptress herself. 

Yes boys and girls, they finally found a motive in that Fed Ex shooting the other day and just as expected....
Wait...
No...
What?...

  "I hope that I can be with Ap­ple­jack in the af­ter­life, my life has no mean­ing with­out her,”


" 何 the f**k? "

Whiskey. Tango. Foxtrot.

What the Hell is going on?

Given that 'we live in a society' and given that same society's predilection for understanding cost-benefit, risk, and root cause analysis, there can be no doubt that the banhammers will soon be a-bonkin' this most demonstrably dangerous degenerate drama.

1 All we need is a specific link to MLP: Equestria Girls, and the circle will be complete.

2 Not exactly a triumph for the power of friendship and loyalty. Sigh.

3 Well, if you are watching young kids at anime conventions, you see many more violent MLP, Naruto, and Sesame Street fans than you do violent Hellsing, Kerberos Panzer cop, and Berserk fans.

People who read Curious George, The Littles, and the Bobbsey Twins are more likely to shout, to run, and to shove in inappropriate situations than people who read Tom Kratman, Mickey Spillane, and Shelby Foote.

I would try to put together a more credible attempt to appear to believe that MLP was the root cause, except that this one fanfic author I really like is very active in MLP these days.  I don't want to appear to be sneering at them.

OTOH, if Biden doesn't specifically condemn, in clear language, Hasbro's decision to make a cowboy an Earth Pony, then it must all be Biden's fault.  (Okay, Biden may really be making it more likely that cracked people will act now, but I couldn't resist a final couple of jokes.)

4 Just to be clear. While I'm not a Brony, the implication that MLP was the root cause of this atrocity was me being intentionally silly. Or sarcastic. I haven't decided yet.

5 That was very clear. Roof was one of the few of these guys that had a plausible case for being right wing, and even he was pretty clearly nuts, and in a way that would've had a bad result no matter what flavor he imprinted on. These folks have a clear prior pattern of problem behavior, often with drug use that isn't making their situations better. There is zero sound reason to think that any Federal policy would have done anything to adjust the frequency of such events. (At least, anything short of shutting down the public school systems. Every other aspect of the problems is much finer than federal policy can change.) The Democrats and the media have, from recent events, pretty clearly been working towards seizing power for decades. Pelosi is obviously deeply invested, and has been in congress for just over thirty years. Moter Voter was clearly laying the ground work, and that has been just under thirty years. Everyone, their childhood imaginary friend of below normal intelligence, and their yellow dog realizes that the handwringing about spree shooters and about alleged right wing causes of spree shooters is mere stagecraft for seizing power. IIRC, Hasbro both owns MLP, and is responsible for the D n D apology for past racism, so they would legitimately deserve to be forced to eat responsibility for this act. It is just that the Bronies don't deserved to be dragged into this shit. OTOH, I'm tempted to find out if I can get banned from fimfiction, etc. this way. Basic issue, I don't think I'd learn anything from the experiment, I don't have a fimfiction account, and if I did I would want to keep it to talk to this one guy about his Eva/Lovecraft fics. Gripping hand, shooterverse seems like an approach that matches or exceeds some of the approaches to fanfic that I personally Do Not Want to read. Much less write. Beyond the obvious, I am not a fan of Yaoi, and the less hideous/in name only implementations of shooterverse might tend towards shipping Dylan Roof and DeWayne Antonio Craddock. Because it is very unlikely that someone who would write shooterverse has the skills to write people getting past race issues without over the top of that sort. I'm young enough that I get excited when I develop an idea that may be genuinely new, but I don't think I'm quite young enough to chase after this one.

6 Argh, I had javascript off, and all of the newlines got eaten.

Not like anyone is missing anything if they ignore it.
