Hating on anime is such a dumb, 2002-2004 era goon thing to do.

Most anime is pretty bad though. There's maybe 5% that's got redeeming qualities.

I want to like anime, I really do. I would care less if my cool new fav sci-fi or supernatural or drama show happened to be animated. I love shit like Cowboy Bebop, Vampire Hunter D, and Legend of the Galactic Heroes.

But dammed if every anime on Netflix or Amazon prime isn't some gay pedo high school or 1000 year old 6 year olds shit. :clint:

Only ones I could stomach were Attack On Titan and Knights of Sidonia and even those were about HS age kids. It's like they've given up on making adult animated drama in favor of pedo fanservice.

Blame! and Goblin Slayer.

You're welcome.

It's astounding and hilarious that the standard reaction to the NPC meme is "these Nazi Russian bots are dehumanizing us!"

Jew York Times does an article explaining the NPC meme.

Quote
The NPC meme fits neatly into this narrative and offers Mr. Trump’s online supporters an easy shorthand way to paint liberals as humorless prudes who say “Drumpf” because the HBO host John Oliver told them to, who march in protests and put on pink “pussyhats” because they’re the popular things to do, and whose views can’t withstand scrutiny.

(And then, when progressives object to a meme that portrays them as unthinking automatons, it becomes another piece of evidence: See? The left can’t take a joke.)

They were even kind enough to include a Q&A section at the end so all the NPCs out in reader land wouldn't be confused.

Are these people actually trying to interfere in the election?

Probably not. Evidence suggests that these are mostly just attention-starved gamers looking to impress one another by “triggering the libs” with edgy memes. But not everyone gets the joke. State officials are already worried that voters will be fooled by deliberate social media campaigns that contain incorrect voting information. Similar types of disinformation spread on social media in 2016, which makes companies like Twitter nervous.

Are these Russian bots?

Probably not. (Although some of the NPC accounts may have been automated, there is no sign that Russia is involved in this.) Mostly, it appears to be a 4chan joke that spiraled into some mild voter suppression.

Aren’t you giving these trolls the attention they’re seeking by writing about them in The New York Times?

Yes, probably. But understanding how these things happen, and how easily joke memes can escape the internet’s seedy underbelly and morph into actual tools of influence, is part of understanding the mechanics of modern politics. As we’ve learned, ignoring trolls doesn’t always make them go away.

Lol at our intellectual betters needing this explained to them.

Nossel was born in Westchester, New York, the daughter of South African parents and granddaughter of refugees from Nazi Germany who fled to South Africa during the 1930s.  She traces her interest in human rights to her growing up Jewish in America, and her visits to apartheid South Africa in her youth.

Every. Time.

Trump’s Attacks on the Press Are Illegal. We’re Suing.


article:

"we're giving money to lawyers so trump gets a strongly-worded letter reminding him that he isn't allowed to unconstitutionally silence the press"

It is the most amazing self-own I think I have ever seen in politics. Then, to follow it up with a meltdown on twitter, is just cherry on top.
