You guys remember MySpace? It was this thing on the internet before Facebook and Tumblr. The other day, while reminiscing about my terrible Web 1.0 Wikipage filled with an eye-damaging amount of animated gifs and Futurama screencaps, I thought we should all take a walk down memory lane, to a time when our culture was just as stupid as it is now, but in a different way. This is The Journey Inward, in which I answer a MySpace survey written in 2007. You may learn about me, but we will all learn about ourselves. The power of friendship was inside your heart all along.
Things really suck. And I’m not just saying that because like 12 people got killed because of maybe terrorism and maybe a stupid and comically bad anti-Islamic film called The Innocence of Muslims, as you see in the laughably cheesy screenshot from it above. There’s also been two political conventions in two weeks in America, at least. That’s a lot of speeches! And all the other things that are typically wrong with the world. AIDS, and whatnot. We all need our Xanax this week. I, as a lowly seventeen year old blogger, am in no place to make any kind of commentary on the tragic and journalistically important times we live in, but typically I do anyway. This week though, nope! We’ve all heard it. I watched Fox News for ten minutes the other day, guys, and it was horrible. We’ve all been 24-hour news cycled to death. That’s why, in searching for the videos to make up this Week, I chose only Trending Videos from YouTube’s most popular that I could not wax philosophically about. These are just some lame clips, guys! No political or social commentary at all! Let’s just laugh at them. Seriously, we all need a break.
In his constant quest to provide you with an enjoyable and intuitive blogging experience, Sam West will present three videos from this week, accompanied by his commentary. This will, hopefully, allow you to enjoy soundbites about current events without any mucking about in the realm of intelligent prose.
Chick-Fil-A Hates Gay People, In a Surprise to No One
Before we start on Chick-Fil-A, I have one question for other liberals: why the fuck would you want to go on Bill O’Reilly’s show so you can have that old man and some fucking lipstick cunt monster yell at you about how you are Pol Pot The Economic Coercer just because you don’t want to buy Chicken that’s used to fund an active fight against equality? O’Reilly doesn’t have to argue with you or play fair or do anything like that, because it’s his show. He thinks he’s fighting fair, sure. But his bullshit about Black People and how they should be boycotted (because we all know if one black reverend says it, EVERY black person agrees with it) is so nonsensical and so innately, basically opposed to any kind of rational logic that it’s impossible to think about in time for a rebuttal, and by the time you’ve got one, he’s already totally moved on and you look like a bumbling retard. The thing about debating with idiots is this: because idiots don’t have to follow the rules of debate, they’re really good at it.
A few days ago an impassioned anti-gay speech from a 16-year-old girl’s vlog was flagged by enough sensible human beings to be banned. The video was taken down because it violated the site’s Community Guideline against hate speech. Since then, the rant has found a home at other conservative websites, namely Breitbart dot com. The big questions seem to be- is the ignorant bullshit this girl is saying hate speech? And, if it is, does YouTube have the right to take it down? Well, here’s the video in question. Apres la jump, I’ll tell you the answers.
