#gamergate crackpottery racism that's completely wrong transphobia

Guess who convinced himself yesterday that the Oregon shooter was “Muslim or transgender?”

Even now that we know his name, the Umpqua Community College shooter remains an enigma, and commenters online and in the media have attempted to fill in the details with a lot of speculation, much of it fairly wild.

But the strangest speculation I’ve run across so far came from Mike Cernovich, the juice-hawking manosphere blogger who’s perhaps best known as #Gamergate’s “based lawyer.” Yesterday, Cernovich thought the long delay in reporting even the most basic information about the shooter was likely an indication that something nefarious was up.

So he tweeted this:

Flawless logic.

Yeah, it’s definitely sarcasm. I had to read it twice but sarcasm, just really flatly written sarcasm. Must be read aloud in a dull tone a la Daria.

Oh, I quoted this tweet in the other comment thread. Can’t decide if Cernovich is the worst person in the world, or if it’s Forney. Definitely one of those two though.

I’m not sure if I’m being dense or what but I’m having a really hard time understanding your comment. I can’t tell if you’re being insulting and think David is an idiot and babbling about conspiracies or you’re calling Mike Cernovich an idiot.

I was calling Mike Cernovich an idiot. I was being sarcastic trying to point out how absurd and bigoted he was being.

@Some sort of username, I think CriticalDragon is being sarcastic. He’s been here for months and hasn’t blotted his copy-book that I can recall.

that would be correct.

Ah, okay, sarcasm was what I was leaning towards because despite my confusion it still felt /too/ coherent to be an MRA comment rushing to Cernovich’s defense.

Rest assured I’m no MRA

There are reports he singled out Christians. An online profile apparently his describes him as “spiritual but not religious”, and his politics as “conservative Republican”.

Well, according to law enforcement sources the guy was, beside an anti-religious bigot and an anti-government paranoid, a white supremacist.

Revade in patriarchiam, Cerno’s pet theory.

A white supremacist who was part black. It’s like Bobby Fischer all over again.
