Things may be changing soon that may allow me to post more. Keep your fingers crossed…
Anyway, this week’s Answerman column has a kind of hilarious question about EchoLight Studios, which is a Christian movie studio linked to the same company that owns Funimation, and shares some staff. The current CEO is the Left’s favorite villain, Rick Santorum. The letter-writer is SUPER CONCERNED that buying a Funimation DVD might advance something called “the conservative agenda.” If someone can explain to me how buying Ikki Tousen advances any conservative agenda at all, I would love to hear it.
The comments on the article are equal parts funny and sad. Since I don’t get into internet arguments anymore, this is what I would have posted:
It’s kind of amusing to me that everyone is so up in arms that there might be CONSERVATIVES! all up in your anime. It’s very important to only buy anime from people who agree with you, amirite?
(But if anime company staffers are allegedly so liberal, and you can only buy anime from people who agree with you, where should conservatives buy their anime? Does the alleged liberalness of Funimation employees cancel out Rick Santorum at a related company, such that no one can ever buy anything from Funimation ever again?)
If you don’t want to patronize retailers that are run by conservatives, fine, that is your money and your choice. If you don’t want to patronize retailers that are run by liberals, fine, that is your money and your choice.Frankly, I don’t care. If I want a product, I will buy the product.
Also, is there anyone more intolerant than a liberal? “The guy who runs a company that is somewhat related to a second company does not agree with me, so I cannot buy anything from the second company because that guy who does not agree with me might get some of the money.” God forbid we interact with people who disagree with us! “Segregation now, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever,” to quote a Democrat.
