Recapping the Great Election between @BenShapiro and @Nero (Guess Who Won!)

It was a dark and stormy night…well it was last Sunday evening when I realized the most haunting question that every Breitbart binge reader [like myself] wants answered: Shapiro or Yiannopoulos? Thus began the great showdown between the two Titans.

 

The stakes were high–the winner of this great election would be forever known as the king of Twitter and would henceforth be referred to as “his excellency.” Even from the beginning Twitter fans were aghast at the daunting task set before them: to choose between the man who shapiroed Piers Morgan right off of CNN or the man who wipes the floor with feminist faces on a daily basis.

 

 

Seeing as how my followers tend to favor our dear leader Ben Shapiro, it was no surprise that early polling placed him in a startling lead over Yiannopoulos. When I reached out to @Nero for comment he seemed unusually willing to concede to Shapiro…but this of course was all part of his devious plan.

 

Shapiro himself did not seem to see himself as the clear winner this early on in the game considering Yiannopoulos’ royal heritage.

 

Then the election went gangbusters as each side pulled out all the stops in the attempt to prove who was more popular on Twitter. Fans evaluated hair length, eyebrows, hair style, upper lips…oh yeah and debate skillz.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Suddenly the great election of 2015 took a turn in the other direction, and Yiannopoulos began pulling ahead so fast he had to apologize to Shapiro for knocking him over on the way.

 

IT WAS UNBELIEVABLE! The man that came to fame by intellectually destroying one Brit on live T.V. was being trounced in an election with another.

 

As the election came down to the wire, I contacted the unions to drag people to the polls and get them to cast their ballots!

 

 

Even my mom got involved!

 

While many of my own followers rallied for Shapiro, it was clear that Yiannopoulos’ cult following was much more passionate…and nefarious.

 

Never underestimate the ingenuity of a Brit, as Yiannopoulos’ hair pushed him far over the top in a crushing defeat of the man who made shapiroing a verb!

I announced Yiannopoulos’ victory to the masses, which was met with cries of joy and rapture from some and suspicion from others.

 

 

In the end Shapiro conceded to the simple fact that in a Twitter election, hair is everything.

 

In conclusion, based on my findings I would highly recommend all current and future presidential candidates immediately stampede to their hair stylists and bleach their hair Yiannopoulos blonde, as anything otherwise could cost them their elections too!

Does Your Support for Paris Go Beyond A Profile Picture?

Rarely am I so moved to actually write a blog post, however I found this subject so sparsely covered I felt I must express it myself.

Many of you have seen the viral peace signs French Peace Symbolwith the Eiffel Tower replacing the nuclear warhead in the middle. For those of you who have missed my warnings about this symbol, the so-called “peace” sign stands for nuclear disarmament, otherwise known as surrender. Regardless of the intentions of the social media user, posting the Eiffel Tower instead of the nuke indicates that you support France’s surrender to jihadi forces. Thus, my initial warning not to post this symbol still stands.

The problems with these kinds of social media campaigns go far beyond misusing an “inappropriate” symbol. Much to the chagrin of my Twitter followers, I have been very vocal about the uselessness of the campaign to re-colorize your profile picture to somehow show solidarity with the French people. What many people assume to be a simple way for low-information voters to proclaim their knowledge and position regarding the Paris attacks actually serves as a cover or penance for those people that support the very policies that allowed this attack to occur with such magnitude.

DebbieTake Debbie Wasserman-Schulz, the chair of the DNC for example. She supports the strict gun control measures that prevent the average French citizen from acquiring weapons and thus preventing the average person from defending themselves. This is the very reason that the so-called “gun free zone” that is Paris was chosen as the venue for this attack in the first place, as there is no one around with the ability to stop the attackers.

Should Debbie rethink her policy positions? Have no fear, Facebook is here! Debbie can just re-colorize her profile picture to show that she feels bad about those attacks without having to face any kind of backlash over the policies she supports that create the kinds of environments that allow these attacks to occur.

I know the re-colorized profiles reading this post are going to take all of what I have said personally and probably need to recover in a safe space for a week. However, the reality is your re-colorized photo does nothing of real use to help the people suffering from this outrageous attack. All it really does is provide a feel-good way of expressing your “good vibes” toward a situation that you will ultimately forget about in a week, if not less.

This is why I would encourage my readers to educate themselves about what really can be done in order to prevent these kinds of attacks from occurring in the future, and start becoming active in their local communities to get good policies enacted so that we can avoid attacks like this on our own soil.

This is the legacy of the Paris attacks: will your support go beyond a profile picture?
