I was considering doing a round-up of various reactions to the Trump election from the puppy-sphere but one in particular out-did itself in terms of an utter lack of self awareness.

Here is Brad Torgersen (you guessed it would be Brad didn’t you?) thinking about the children: https://www.facebook.com/brad.torgersen/posts/1635053296520897?pnref=story

And now I am reading all these stories from parents, supposedly screaming about how their children are living in Trump Terror, and I just shake my head—dummies, your kids are having a cow because *you* are having a cow.

And if you are thinking “but wait…didn’t Brad freak out after the 2015 Hugo Awards?” then you would be right: https://bradrtorgersen.wordpress.com/2015/08/23/nothing-more-need-be-said/

So lets be clear:

  • A corrupt authoritarian sexual predator becomes most powerful man in the world with a minority of the vote and starts surrounding himself with white supremacist sympathisers? Brad’s advice: calm down and respect the vote and don’t let the kids get upset.
  • A shonky plan to rig a science fiction award (with the bonus help of a very similar group of white supremacist sympathisers) loses big time in a vote? Brad’s advice: FREAK THE FUCK OUT PEOPLE!!!! VOTERS ARE ABUSERS, CHILDREN ARE UPSET!!!

  1. And yet Camestros, I do not recall Sad Puppies rioting and breaking shit at the 2015 Hugos. I -do- recall Brad Torgersen being falsely called a racist. Like Trump.

    This week, Trumpers are conspicuously absent from the riots. Everybody that’s rioting and braking shit is on the Hillary side.

      Both of them have said incredibly racist and homophobic things. They’re both racists and homophobes; they provided that evidence themselves. Stop pretending otherwise.

      That’s because they’re too busy being conspicuously present at all the incidents of harassment and assault of minorities and LGBTQ.

    • “falsely called a racist. Like Trump.”

      Trump isn’t a racist; it’s pure coincidence that all his appointments have received the full-throated approval of the KKK.


  2. My new favorite propaganda model: the lie swarm.

    Yes. You are quite good at it. Someone who read the screed you linked to would note that it doesn’t provide any support for its claims about Bannon, it just asserts he’s a good guy. On the other hand, Bannon’s vile views are well-documented in his writing and in his tenure as editor of Breitbart.

    You don’t seem to be able to distinguish between facts and lies, or between claims supported by evidence and claims that are not. Here’s a hint: The ones that are supported by evidence provide quotes and citations in support of their claims, while the baseless ones that you seem to favor do not. That makes the “sources” you point to worthless.
