This is terrifying to me. Putting aside the issue of crimethink, I was stuck in a hospital (and later nursing home) for a number of weeks because I required 24/7 palliative care. Between the pain itself and the incredible amount of Dilaudid they had to keep circulating through my system even as I slept, I was completely out of my goddamned mind. I couldn’t make my own medical decisions because much of the time I was delirious, and even when I seemed alert, I had very little grasp on what was happening to me. (I refused food for a full two weeks, all the while complaining that the nurses were starving me.)
My short term memory was shot (I ended up being blessed with permanent amnesia), and I was an absolute fucking bitch, screaming all sorts of abusive things at every female who came in contact with me. (Yes, just the women, apparently.)
I didn’t know what the hell I was doing. I’m normally the world’s most charismatic patient, but between the pain and the drugs and the trauma (both physical and emotional), I was an absolute hellion to the poor people at the hospital. (From what I understand, the nursing home staff deserved me.)
I didn’t have any mental health issue to help account for my behavior, and it wasn’t until I was readmitted (a few weeks after my release) that they realized the extent to which my “medically-induced psychosis” had influenced my behavior. (One of the palliative care nurses confided in me that she’d assumed I was just a bitch.)
So yeah, the idea of being abandoned to that kind of suffering and ultimately left to die of shock both terrifies and angers me.
How Tim Pool converts innocent viewers into alt-right bigots
Provocateur Tim Pool has once again come under fire for his hateful ways, questioning the progressive media narrative that YouTube radicalizes people into alt-right bigots and spreading the ridiculous conspiracy theory that the mainstream media is simply out to deplatform and discredit its competition.
WATCH: Exposing the motive behind media smears of YouTube
Which is literally ridiculous. The content creators whose careers and livelihoods have been destroyed in the wake of Vox Adpocalypse weren’t even in the same league as traditional outlets like Vox (owned by NBC), NPC Daily, and the Fabulous New York Times.
What matters is not the quantity of subscribers but the quality of the content. And the mainstream media produces the BEST content.
Besides, all of the people who have been deplatformed or otherwise demonitized were bad actors. Anyone who thinks it acceptable to include upload videos about World War II or the Holocaust without editing out the involvement of Hitler and the Nazis per ADL guidelines is probably a Nazi too.
Tim’s defense of YouTube and his continued harassment of the journo community is clearly an attempt to obfuscate the fact that he, more than any other YouTuber, is turning helpless viewers into Nazis.
As a handsome and stunningly-brave senior report for NPC Daily whose journalistic integrity is above scrutiny, I recently sat down with one of Tim Pool’s victims over a refreshing soy latte at an empty Starbucks at nine o’clock on a weekday morning. The poor xir was so literally frightened that xe was only willing to speak under the condition of total anonymity — which is why no one else was around to witness our meeting.
