So a Trump OPPONENT, Rick Wilson, "likened Donald Trump supporters as "childless single men who masturbate to anime" and fans of Hitler iconography in the same breath on MSNBC."

This was not Trump's people saying that. This was Trump's opponents who said that. The cross-dressing Cosplayer went to the wrong venue. He should have showed up at whoever's rally Rick Wilson is supporting.

Except, of course, that Wilson had a point, Trump IS a little disturbingly popular with white-supremacists, it's just the never-heard-of-anime thing that would be protested. And he still wouldn't get the idea anyway.

Hmmmm..... Since you are a fan of anime, you must also be a white supremacist... All of us, here on CR are anime fans, ergo we are all white supremacists.....

Do you see? That's what was wrong with his statement.

What you didn't notice is that our cosplayer wasn't white...? Yet, that statement would group him with the white supremacists..... So, Wilson's point was wrong. It's like grouping, butterflies and great white sharks in the same category.....

So, if he had a point, it was lost, because of the way he offended me and everyone else who like anime, by comparing us to white supremacists (I wouldn't doubt there are white supremacists who like anime, but not all anime fans are white supremacists). I'm sure it's true that every anime fan loves Trump and want him to be president. Yeah? No... I didn't think that was true either.

My beef is that the cosplayer protested at the wrong venue. He should have been at Rick Wilson's place of work to make his protest there...

He's a Republican strategist, and only noticed that a bunch of neo-Nazi site posters had Naruto and One Piece avatars.

Which caused him to be like the guy wandering through San Diego during SDCC and thinks that anime watchers are all a bunch of convention fanboys who dress up as Boba Fett and Wonder Woman.

Remember that report about a month ago made by a GOP commentator and Trump opponent (forgot his name, so please fill me in) who compared Trump supporters to otakus who fap to anime? The demonstrator could have done this as a reference to that mans comments.


Rick Wilson, who pointed out the popularity of Trump's policies on online race-hate forums, noticed many of the posters were using anime/Naruto/etc. avatars, and got confused.
Which resulted in some misinterpretation when he accused Trump supporters of being, quote, "neo-Nazis and childless single men who masturbate to anime", apparently believing the the two demographics overlapped.

(sigh)...SOMEHOW , this all got blown up and mythologized in the fanboy press that "Donald Trump said he hates anime fans!"
Which is...wrong in at least three ways that immediately spring to mind, and probably more if one has time to work on it.

I doubt that was the cause of it--anybody with the name of Bootymath sounds like a stunt-crasher--but it at least keeps the discussion on topic.


They do overlap, it's called /pol/. 4chan started as a board for anime fans and general weebs, so /pol/ has that heritage plus being a bunch of maybe-ironic-maybe-serious neo-nazis. /pol/ loves Trump and is full of single childless neo-nazi men who masturbate to anime, or at least you get that impression if you assume they're saying what they actually believe and not just funposting.

Not all Nazis hate Asians; I mean the Japanese and Germans were allies in WW2.
