IFR Posted December 3, 2022 Share Posted December 3, 2022 11 minutes ago, DMC said: While I totally agree we should just stop paying attention to him - see my first post in this thread - I suspect JGP's reaction stems from your apparent assertions that Kanye propagating antisemitism and Hitler apologia is a good thing because of the backlash it's received. I strongly suspect the ADL would disagree with this assessment. I'm not saying it's a good thing. I'm explicitly saying the media attention is a bad thing, a cynical exploitation of mental illness that the media is embracing for the rage clicks (true to form). I'm further saying that we have no idea at all what social impact such statements will have - there's no merit to assuming it's going to normalize anything. So using that as a justification for the media to continue focusing attention on Kanye seems without merit to me. But I know that rage news will continue on, so I try to find entertainment in this otherwise pointless enterprise. Wade1865 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
