Today’s Tom Woods Letter, which all the influential people receive every weekday. Be one of them.
The thought controllers came after him, and he had the last laugh.
Colin Moriarty spent 14 years in the video game industry, and he was part of Kinda Funny, a popular YouTube channel. Until this Tweet:
Naturally, the hyenas came after him.
He followed up by noting that his significant other “thinks my blatantly obvious joke is funny. Because not all people are humorless sacks of ****.”
Then the Holy Rite of Shaming and Expiation, learned by heart by all morally superior people, began.
Colleague Greg Miller (who had probably laughed at the Tweet himself) solemnly informed us that his friend had done something Forbidden and Unacceptable.
“Was Colin’s Tweet a joke? Sure, but that doesn’t make it OK.”
Why, everyone knows that men and women never, ever joke about each other.
Continuing with the Sacred Rite, testimonies of anguish and righteous anger began to flood in from across the world of allowable opinion.
This man has helped perpetuate the structures of oppression through his joke. It is time to hear his words of repentance.
Except the offender refused to play his appointed role.
He might have read from the official text. “O sisters and brothers, I have been guilty of wickedness and oppression that fill me with great shame. Henceforth I shall work for justice (and of course pay protection money — I mean, make a coercion-free donation — to whatever group has been the loudest in assassinating my character).”
He threw the liturgical book to the ground and set a match to it.
My kind of guy.
He launched a Patreon campaign to get donations for his future work. It’s already receiving tens of thousands of dollars per month.
If I can get him on the show, I will.
Lesson: never, ever apologize to these evil bastards.
