A Proper and Overdue Introduction. · 6:39pm January 7th

Hello, everyone.

I am Wise Cracker, and I identify as a chaoist.

Some people may look at that and wonder which side I am on in the political spectrum. Well, I’m on the side that’s got butter on it. If that doesn’t say enough, then I invite you to educate yourself on the teachings of Morrison and Carroll.

I don't think you quite realise what my problem is with what's transpired, Super.

I tried to tell you why what you were saying and advocating was a bad idea (again, I might add). I even went so far as to pull the religion card to hopefully let you at least consider the double standard that is so prevalent within your own circles. But rather than address my points, you go and drag a third party into it. Funny thing about that, too: notice how no one else reacted to that blog? You publicly told someone to get involved.

Said third party then lumps me in with the alt-right, or fascists, or 4channers, whichever one you prefer, I don't really care. No points addressed, just insult after insult flung my way. Now, in and of itself that might have been forgiveable. It could have all been just trolling, it could have been a joke, just pure irony. I don't belong to any group, apparently you and yours weren't aware of that. But there's a different factor at play here.

You've already made it clear what you think is okay to do to those legitimate targets. And I called you out for that when you said it:

I want to be able to fuck the shit up out of fascists. I want to kill them. I want to drain the life from their body. I want to crush their windpipes and break their necks when they try to fuck with me.

That right there removed the option of 'joke' or 'irony' from the table. You made it impossible to treat rhetoric like that as a joke. You put that up, and you stood by it, and you, to the best of my knowledge, still stand by it.

All that combined tells me that there's no point in trying to talk to you.

Edit: I'll clarify that statement further. It's not so much that I feel I'm wasting my energy trying, it's that I'm essentially trying to reason with someone who's labelled me an enemy. You talk of my fears and concerns as if you even know what they are. You've now become part of my concerns.

You're never going to temper your statements or take a step back and see if there's a more practical way of getting what you want. You're not willing to listen to my ideas or educate yourself on my beliefs, but from where I'm sitting, it sounds like you are more than willing to beat me up over them if you had the chance. Or find someone else to do it. If you ever made good on your statements that you'd beat up a fascist or an alt-righter or whoever you think deserves it, you could be beating me or a friend of mine up and you wouldn't realise it. You'd just think they, or I, deserve it, regardless of whether that's true or not.

You now officially combine your previously established willingness to use violence against 'bad' people with a complete nonchalance and even failure towards identifying those same 'bad' people. You didn't call out your friend about it, you had enough time to joke about it on their profile, so one can only assume you stand by what they said.

So there, I've said my piece. I do seriously suggest you read that story, btw, it's quite an interesting one. I'll spare you the quote, you'll know it when you see it.

Pretend I put something clever here involving bat ponies and echo chambers.

I’m sorry I’m an asshole your fears are born of legitimate concerns although obviously we disagree on the nature of those concerns. I need to work on better addressing that.

YOU! Why did you not warn me! You know how much I looked for this! You know this has been a pet peeve for...

*ahem*

Just checked to see if the download completely legitimate purchase through official channels that are totally available in my country :twilightsheepish: of the episode went okay, saw the first few seconds/minutes of it and...

New unicorn colt. Waiting in line on the clubhouse steps. Way at the back, closed screen as soon as I noticed, but he was there.

*cue Hallelujahs*

I've heard. And I am excited. But still... five more weeks, ish, then I'll see when I'm home alone long enough to bingewatch the Season. And actually, probably going to start leaving the site's groups and such alone for a while, try and get out of this funk and publish something decent before year's end. That, and the novel needs rewriting again. Female reindeer Rumble expy... or rather, Rumble mixed with Scootaloo from the Tragedy on Lookout Lane thing, sound good?

Also, this was a Rumble-related cutie mark problem episode, no? I do hope I measure up favourably...

On second thought, I hope I was completely off the mark. My ego might collapse under its own weight if I actually got something right. :twilightoops:
