killer-squirtle said: What did Jontron do this time? =/
tim schafer, founder of double fine studios, which made gems like psychonauts, grim fandango, brutal legend, the secret of monkey island and other great games posted a tweet with a link to a video talking about violence against women in video games.
(here’s a link to the video, very well thought out and it makes amazing points.)
jon jafari, who is following tim on twitter, decided he wasn’t happy watching a video that had comments disabled that talked about such a sensitive topic, and decided to make his opinion very well known.
and then as jon’s voracious fanboys were attacking mr. tim schafer on twitter, telling him to kill himself since he’s “outlived his welcome”, jon decides to send this tweet in:
which not only spurned his fanbase on to send hatemail towards tim, but also made tim out to be the bad guy in this conversation.
which he absolutely wasn’t.
more like yawntron
I am embarrassed to say I even liked Jontron at one point, this is disgusting
Anonymous said: Except JonTron want composting himself to the victims of lynch mobs, he was comparing modern SJW cunts to lunch mobs. You SJWs will just fucking take anything and run with it won't you
True I forgot about that time when a bunch of rowdy Twitter users broke into JonTrons home and violently murdered him as a public spectacle in order to remind others like him of their social position
Anonymous said: Marvel's current Mighty Avengers might be the weirdest comic I've ever seen in a while. I'm not reading it and I never will, because it's as hypocritical as it gets. With the insane amount of black characters on the roster (almost every single black superhero in the Marvel universe is in the team) it's obviously meant for black people. Not for white people. Not for asians. Not for hindus. Not for martians. Only for black people. It's ... it's ... it's ****ing racist!
So you’re not reading it, and you never will, but you profess to know what it’s all about?
That seems a strange way to gather such information!
Plus, you’re simply wrong here. As you’d know if you read an issue.
But therein lies the madness.
If it’s not the book for you, that’s perfectly fine. Not every comic is for every reader.
But MIGHTY AVENGERS is meant for all readers.
This kind of thing wears on a person’s spirit. This was written by a real human being.
Now don’t talk to me about “well that’s superhero comics, blah blah blah.” We all breathe the same air as this anonymous person and we share soil and water with this person. This person is in our world and for all we know, *we might know them*
And they have decided that a comic book has too many black characters. They’ve decided this because to them, “racism” is when more than one or two non-white characters (and extrapolating thus: people) actually exist in the same place at the same time.
This is also how racism manifests. The insistence that our very existence is an intrusion.

US black teen 'shot six times' by police - Americas - Al Jazeera English -
"Michael Brown, the black teenager whose killing by a Missouri police officer has prompted more than a week of unrest, was shot at least six times, a family-commissioned medical investigation has said.
"Six bullets struck, and two may have re-entered" the 18-year-old’s body, said Michael Baden on Monday. Baden was asked by Brown’s family and lawyers to conduct an independent examination on his remains.
One of the bullets hit the top of Brown’s head, another struck his eye, while others hit his right arm, Baden told a news conference in the St Louis suburb of Ferguson.
"All of the gunshot wounds could have been survivable, except the one at the top of the head," he said.
The family said that the bullet wound on the top of the skull suggested Brown was bowing his head to submit to the officer when he was shot.
Baden said he had found no evidence of an alleged struggle between Brown and the officer, who is said to have been hurt in the incident, but added that he had not examined the policeman.
The absence of gunpowder on Brown’s body indicated that the muzzle of the gun could have been as close as metre away, or as far as nine metres away, he added.
The respected former New York City chief medical examiner stressed his findings were preliminary and that he needed to see X-rays taken by local coroners just before the bullets were removed Brown’s corpse.
Brown was shot dead while he was walking down a street on August 9. He was unarmed. His death prompted protests and a harsh police crackdown in Ferguson, which has a black majority but a mainly white police force.
Three autopsies on the body are under way: one by St Louis County authorities, another by the Brown family and a third by the US federal government, which is investigating possible civil rights violations.
Following the latest findings, the US National Guard began deploying in Ferguson as Missouri’s governor lifted a curfew imposed over the protests.
"With these additional resources in place, the Missouri state highway patrol and local law enforcement will continue to respond appropriately to incidents of lawlessness and violence, and protect the civil rights of all peaceful citizens to make their voices heard. We will not use a curfew tonight," Missouri’s governor, Jay Nixon, said in a statement.
UN chief Ban Ki Moon on Monday called on US authorities to protect the right of peaceful protests over Brown’s death in Ferguson.
"He calls on all to exercise restraint, for law enforcement officials to abide by US and international standards in dealing with demonstrators," a UN spokesman said."
