RND/ To consider poor old obsolete Ricky Gervais. With that eminently punchable mug and clueless hyena laugh. Just another sad, toxic media sphincter lamprey, always desperately seeking attention for crude acts of mass public ignorance.
In which the only detectable talent such boring, un-flushable TV turds seem capable of expressing seems sociopathic self regard for their own alleged, unceasing funniness.
Consider Ricky the perfect name for some shit eating mutt; “Here, Ricky!” Go quietly chase a ball over the edge of the nearest cliff.. One could almost look up Roy Batty’s classic existential question in a modern encyclopedia – “Pleased with yourself, little man?” – and find Rick Deckard’s picture replaced with that of Gervais, beaming out at all the invisible cameras gathered like toadstools to greet a super-inflated ego. (A grossly distended sense of self and self worth that makes even Dan Dare’s comic book nemesis The Mekon feel humble by comparison.)

What’s decidedly (non) ironic of course is how the two Venn diagrams of Pseudo Atheism and Alt Right Social Injustice so neatly intersect in the confused, low watt brain of a pathetic troll such as Gervais:
Pseudo atheistic.. because the underlying, convenient misunderstanding of society and their place in it, simply means devolutionary jerkoffs like Gervais see themselves as gods, speaking and punching down from the holy media mountain to spread the terrible news to their ditto-headed fans in the idiot’s choir – that “Acting like a tosser is OK, you guys!” (After all, nobody understands a fellow dickhead quite like a fellow stiffy.)
Alt right social injustice.. because making the direct, false Trumpian ‘both sides’ bullshit equivalence between the act of emptying a mere milkshake over disgusting, murderous and all too real fascists – and one’s apparently innate (ultra conservative) ‘free speech’ right to regularly insult and humiliate those marked out as lower than oneself, is typical of such wilful ignorance.
Note the snugness with which Gervais fits Right in with other media piss weasels like Sam ‘Islamophobia’ Harris, Jeremy ‘Fucknuts’ Clarkson, Louis ‘Me Too’ C.K., all with successful careers in apparently telling it straight and white – liberal, postmodern snowflake commie whatever torpedoes be damned.
One also simply has to note just how many outright fascist and conservative shit nuggets crawled out of the rotten internet woodwork to wholeheartedly agree with Gervais and his sour milkshake tweet. Heck, he and King Of The Derps (Pewds) should team up and do a ‘It’s Just A Joke *Wink*’™ comedy skit together.
Dear little Ricky, please remember you’re not being violently oppressed or remotely clever – you’re just a foul mouthed gobshite. Have a whole, healthy, free puke milkshake container’s worth of Fuck Right Off, courtesy of.. why, anyone with a remotely functioning Modern, Default Evolved Society Gene.
RND/ another hot frontline report from Trumpverse; before we make some ‘misguided rush to judgement’, let us prey and together consider the oh-so nuanced, ‘both sides’ context of the modern poor, innocent smirking whiteboy
I never interacted with this protestor. I did not speak to him. I did not make any hand gestures or other aggressive moves

– In which Ryu from Street Fighter appears to suddenly “Hadoken!” a certain punchable mug (“Backpfeifengesicht in German”), whose foul paleskin privilege inherently allows the owner to ignore the fact their very mode of existence represents an aggressive affront to modern evolved social reality
RND/ to consider the co-incidental or algorithmic emergence of the (default, in-built) malignant narcissistic personality of social media platforms like Youtube, and the default psychopathological ‘media personalities’ (now there’s an insult) who preach there to ditto headed Stan armies with an ever louder political voice
Gamers are pathetic!

First a brief stable genius article, highlighting how when it comes to the modern political notion of Popularity, no fake news you’re at the center of is bad news:
And now, the ‘King Of The Derps’, back in the news again. Gee, almost as if it’s his very (socioeconomic) function – a warning (3840×2160 .jpg):
It’s Always A Question Of Journalistic Ethics
Notice how this darkly fascinating ‘Pewnews’ spectacle precisely heralds the rise of the kind of global political platform in which the owner of, and power behind that very platform consistently states they themselves have nothing whatsoever to do with politics, are utterly apolitical and neutral (kinda like taste free beige cardboard) – continually denouncing the shadowy figure of ‘mainstream media’ and saying it’s no wonder ‘the [ordinary, just-like-me] people’ are turning away from its inherent (read: left wing) bias
All this is often mis-contextualized in the by-now standard form of the ‘apology-not-really’; obviously not an apology, because there’s always the blindly psychotic, champagne-media-bubble understanding one is far beyond simple good and evil – a new social media god, their own perfect creation, divorced utterly from society and politics, whose holy ‘third-way’ role is to repeatedly bring the terrible news of one’s own sinister innocence down from the “LOLtube” subscriber mountain to the masses, who (just like them) also always understand that ‘Nobody understands or loves you like I do’; two lightly cracked mirrors facing each other, a violently empty echo chamber – a fabulous, true, pure ‘Radio GAGA’
Scenario: in which it seems the biggest (anti-philosophical) draw for PewDiePie’s fans is that Pewd’s biggest fan is and always was himself; that, there’s never just one PewDiePie, but millions – all simultaneously dreaming of their own impossibly unique, untouchable Pewd-like (/leet gam3r) status, ie. as though permanently ‘acting up around the house when your mother’s out’
Easy then to imagine such a dense massing crowd of anonymous individuals lurching from one casually destructive politics-free campaign to another, all quietly saying ‘Oopsie!’ A desperate little age in which every dangerously, woefully naive, painfully ‘misunderstood’ (oh-so complex and mature) miniature violin-playing ‘who-me?’ shed-heel gets there 1.5 minutes; where one’s forever-young, internal adolescent / screeching terd, straight out of Charlie And The Adderall Factory effortlessly beams themselves right and center onto the world stage – future once and forever sociopathic billionaire leader of the free fisting world of (equally) super passive-aggressive ‘free speech’ chuckle-funk overedgelords
All hail (/heil) Emperor Pewds. Achtung, Bros – remember citizen, “It’s just a joke™!!”
Ur-Fascism is based upon a selective populism, a qualitative populism, one might say. In a democracy, the citizens have individual rights, but the citizens in their entirety have a political impact only from a quantitative point of view — one follows the decisions of the majority. For Ur-Fascism, however, individuals as individuals have no rights, and the People is conceived as a quality, a monolithic entity expressing the Common Will. Since no large quantity of human beings can have a common will, the Leader pretends to be their interpreter. Having lost their power of delegation, citizens do not act; they are only called on to play the role of the People. Thus the People is only a theatrical fiction. To have a good instance of qualitative populism we no longer need the Piazza Venezia in Rome or the Nuremberg Stadium. There is in our future a TV or Internet populism, in which the emotional response of a selected group of citizens can be presented and accepted as the Voice of the People.
