“First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.” — Mahatma Gandhi
But I don’t care if Americans think we’re running the news media, Hollywood, Wall Street or the government. I just care that we get to keep running them.
Stein’s latest diatribe for TIME magazine, in which he writes in circles and whines, is entitled “Why We’re Losing the Internet to the Culture of Hate.” TNN is not exactly sure who is the “we” to which Stein refers, but it wouldn’t be too much of a surprise to learn it is the same people he referred to in his prior cocky Hollywood rant.
You can read it here if you must, but the short version of his tiresome, tedious and quite over-rated rhetoric is that some people’s feelings are being hurt and others (the trolls) have bad (aka “hateful”) manners. Irregardless, the shitlords at stormer sites are running victory laps over this one. I’ve notice a big recruitment drive is well underway.
TNN’s message to TIME and Joel Stein is short and sweet: The featured photo applies, your era has peaked.
