Dem Political Consultant Wants to Create Giant Holographic Joe Biden in Fortnite to Rally Young Voters

“Travis Scott’s takeover of Fortnite … if we could do that with Joe Biden,” she said.

A Democrat political consultant is floating the idea of inserting a giant Joe Biden hologram in Fortnite to generate some enthusiasm for the lackluster candidate.

Lis Smith, a former campaign advisor for Pete Buttigieg, suggested the idea during an interview with Politico.

“Stefan Smith, who had done digital work for Pete Buttigieg, cited the other day how Travis Scott’s take over of Fortnite and how that was a really creative way to think about it,” Smith told Politico in a video interview.

Smith and the interviewers were discussing how the Democratic National Convention could “hop from digital events on Instagram Live to Facebook to Twitch to Twitter,” as the coronavirus is making an in-person event seem far less likely.

For the keynote event, she said that perhaps they could take over Fortnite with a giant hologram of the candidate. Smith suggested that they could project the giant Biden against the Grand Canyon with a soundtrack provided by some of the “biggest musical artists in the game.”

“If we could do that with Joe Biden, you know, Joe Biden and project it against the Grand Canyon, that might be a little bit ambitious, but we could have exclusive musical content from some of the biggest musical artists in the game at this driving eyeballs to the convention so that people watch them.”

“Give America a giant avatar of President Obama introducing another avatar of Joe Biden while they stand amidst a digital rendering of America through the ages,” Smith suggested. “Give America Joe Biden accepting his nomination from a national monument like the Grand Canyon while the sun sets behind him.”

Smith was inspired by a concert inside Fortnite by Travis Scott last month — which boasted a massive audience of 12 million people. The elaborate virtual performance included a larger-than-life version of the rapper.

“Travis Scott’s takeover of Fortnite … if we could do that with Joe Biden,” she said before adding, “that might be a little ambitious.”

The ten minute performance broke the record for most viewers of a virtual performance in the game.

Gaming website Kotaku commented on Smith’s idea saying that “at the very least, ejaculating a giant Biden avatar onto one of the nation’s natural wonders might be a step up from hiding their candidate inside an honest-to-god podcast bunker.”

You Love To See It: Rich Writer Cheers Rioters Burning Poor Areas, Calls Them ‘Animals’ When They Get To His

This is the best “life comes at you fast” of all time.

Published

A rich NBA writer was gleefully cheering as Minneapolis rioters burned down poor neighborhoods, but quickly changed his tune when they got to his area.

Chris Martin Palmer, a well known sportswriter, was tweeting things like “burn that sh-t down. Burn it all down,” when the rioters burned down an affordable housing project that was under construction.

Just days later, the riots began to creep closer to his home in a Los Angeles gated community, at which time the rioters became “animals.”

“They just attacked our sister community down the street. It’s a gated community and they tried to climb the gates. They had to beat them back. Then destroyed a Starbucks and now are in front of my building. Get these animals TF out of my neighborhood. Go back to where you live,” Palmer wrote, referring to the lower income areas they previously destroyed.

“Tear up your own shit. Don’t come to where we live at and tear our neighborhood up. We care about our community. If you don’t care about yours I don’t give a shit,” he added.

As he got called out on Twitter, he pretended that he only supported “peaceful” protesters all along, and wasn’t cheering for the arson.

“Make no mistake about it those who were looting were not protestors. They were criminals who just blended in. Hell bent on stealing and property destruction. When the legit protestors left midday everything went off the rails,” he wrote.

When someone tweeted at him saying “you can’t be with the chaos one minute then when it’s at your front door you switch it up,” to which the hypocrite replied “you better damn well believe I can.”

He was ratioed, of course.

Hilariously, Palmer also attended the riots and bragged about being tear gassed, in someone else’s neighborhood, of course.

The people who “don’t care” about their communities are people like this elderly disabled woman who now has no where to shop. She tearfully told a reporter that “George is in a better place than we are,” and said that she wanted to “go where George did,” as she watched the rioters destroy her neighborhood.

Funny how Palmer believes the destruction is all fun and games until it threatened him, even though he can actually afford to lose — unlike the woman above.

Nick Fuentes Does America First Groyper Chant on Live TV

“GROYPER! GROYPER! GROYPER!”

Published

Nicholas Fuentes, one of the leaders of a growing America First movement in the United States, bravely crashed a Florida news report to do a “Groyper” chant.

Fuentes hosts a political commentary show on DLive that has thousands of regular viewers.

Riots have been sweeping the nation after a black man died in the custody of Minneapolis Police on Monday. There have been murders, arson, kidnappings, and countless businesses have been destroyed by looting.

On Saturday, a white shop owner was stoned by a mob who was trying to loot his business. He appeared to be in critical condition. Another elderly white man was brutally jumped by the mob for trying to defend himself and his vehicle, before they turned his car over and lit it on fire.

As “Conservative Inc.,” the mainstream Republican organizations, continue to cave to pressure from leftists and silence, exclude, or “cancel” more and more interesting right-wing figures and voices — a dissident right has began to grow and organize.

From forming their own student groups, to organizing events that counter the “gatekeepers,” this movement, which largely believes in stopping immigration, ending senseless wars, and putting America’s citizens first, has been making major waves.

In the fall, the “Groyper War” took aim at more neoconservative figures on the right and asked tough questions during their speaking events.

During the “Groyper War,” Rep. Dan Crenshaw infamously told a young right-wing student who asked him a question about Israel at an event that he would “regret” doing so. Ben Shapiro gave a 45 minute long speech calling the Groyper students asking questions, and Fuentes, who became the de facto leader of the Groyper movement “alt-right.”

The dissident right also hosted an event to counter CPAC, called the America First Political Action Conference (AFPAC). The event featured speeches from “cancelled” right-wing figures, including Fuentes, plus former Daily Caller editor Scott Greer, American Identity Movement’s Patrick Casey, and conservatice icon Michelle Malkin.

Malkin’s gained the disdain of neoconservatives when she refused to disavow Fuentes and other young America First students during the “Groyper War.” Her refusal to participate in the cancel mob lead to her being removed as a speaker by the Young America’s Foundation (YAF).

UN Posts List of ‘Gender Neutral’ Terms For Normal Words — Your Landlord is Now Your ‘Owner’

Most absurdly, the UN wants you to now refer to your landlord and your owner.

Published

on

The United Nations are being brutally mocked on social media after posting a list of “gender neutral” terms to replace completely normal words.

Most absurdly, the UN wants you to now refer to your landlord and your owner.

“What you say matters,” the official UN account tweeted. “Help create a more equal world by using gender-neutral language if you’re unsure about someone’s gender or are referring to a group.”

The tweet included a link to the website for United Nations Entity for Gender Equality, also known as ‘UN Women,’ which appeared to be offline. It also included a small list of words that they have decided are problematic.

The tweet was met with immediate mockery to the point where they were brutally ratioed. Within six hours, the post had 17,200 responses and only 4,000 “likes.”

Commentators were especially astounded by the suggestion that you should call your landlord your owner. Others pointed out that some languages are gender specific and assign genders to inanimate objects, though it appears that the UN only takes issue with the English language.

People also called out how incorrect their suggestion of replacing “maiden name” with “family name” is.

“Maiden name and family name are distinct things though. The maiden name is the surname the person used to have before marriage. Family name can easily mean the surname they have now. You didn’t think think that one through, you’re creating ambiguity,” one user responded.

It sure is a good thing that the UN has nothing better to do during this pandemic than police language.
