Has she plugged her new channel on her main at all? I think she's only mentioned it via twitter, and her voice from Japan twitter account only had 37 followers as of last night. Now she has 46 or so, but you would think if she's coming out the gate this strong she would have a lot more people following her twitter for updates. Maybe all the follows did hop over from twitter, but I think it's pretty unlikely. Also she's got a video on that Tana character iDubbbz smashed. I don't know if I'll start watching this channel, I'd rather watch channels with well researched material as opposed to..... mirandas Wikipedia bibliography.
I've always found it interesting how few interactions, in terms of likes and comments, she has on twitter for such a large amount of followers. I have a small fraction of the followers but I get about the same amount of likes and comments on tweets. It would seem that for someone with 16k followers she should be getting a lot more attention than she does. Imo it doesn't matter so much the number of followers you have, but how many are active. Also she has her new channel up and a new twitter for the channel. I haven't watched the video she posted but "voice from Japan" might require its own thread? I guarantee she's trying to be a knockoff Phillip Defranco
The comments section on this article is really enlightening. The school is a Shinto school, the "first and only" in Japan, and it seeks to inspire patriotism to the country. That right away should be a dead giveaway that something is wrong. Miranda commenting on this issue is a double sword. On one hand I think that she wants attention and to appear saintly. On the other hand, she really does care about "foreigners" in Japan but often goes about it in the most misinformed way possible. For example, someone commented a couple pages back about how inhospitable Japan is to immigrants from the war torn Middle East, something that Mira denied. And also when she suggested giving homeless people your leftovers (instead of suggesting, maybe, food that hasn't been eaten off of) Once she becomes a citizen, she will be nominally Japanese but she will never, never be seen as Japanese by the majority. Japan is a much more homogenous country than the US or Canada, where melting pot is touted as one of the benefits of living here, despite the constant reminders that this isn't always the case. I think she's wrong on many issues but I do commend her... attempts.... to bring justice to racial inequalities. She's just really bad at getting it across in a meaningful and consistent way
Ok, I don't object to her sharing this article. Good on her. But I find her BOYCOT schtick hilarious because it's not like a major corporation or a chain, nor is it in the area she lives, it's a kindergarten in Osaka. Okay? Why don't you go to the kindergarten and picket outside that would probably be more effective. I know it's super petty but seriously she's trying too hard to be a Saint
Coming back after watching some more videos + his explanation video. i think the media is really fucking him over with this, and I still think Jew jokes are in bad taste, but I do see what he was trying to do by satirizing the system. It just really bit him in the ass and I hope he'll move on and do better, like he said. Ive never believed he's a Nazi or an anti Semite, but nowadays anyone can be labeled as a Nazi. I've seen the word stuck to people who have even criticized white supremacy. The word is going to loose its meaning being used to label anyone who disagrees with liberals. Using "Nazi" as an insult toward conservatives in general takes the attention off the real nazis that actually exist and puts them on scapegoats like Pewdiepie.
All the Lane stuff happened in September, it's in the 150ish range if anyone wants to catch up. Here's some the chat logs though
https://prettyuglylittleliar.net/topic/14-general-kanadajin3-thread/?do=findComment&comment=111675 Lane is embarrassing, I'm embarrassed to have interacted with them. Part of me does believe it's Mira but another part of me thinks it's just a very bored troll that wants to rile everyone up. We may never know. Also i forgot, but its stated several times that Nyx confirmed they had multiple accounts on PULL at the time they were banned. Seems like they're super creepily obsessed
The cherry picking is really bugging me. I hate throwing around things like cultural appropriation loosely, but I think that's basically what she's doing. She doesn't know or care anything about Islam but hey a niqab looks cool and makes me seem like I'm standing in solidarity with Muslims! I'm gonna drink a whole bunch of sake and then talk some more about how cool Saudi Arabia is! Good thing I can just take it on and off like a costume while not acknowledging any of the problematic aspects of the culture I really like for no discernible reason! I really don't think she respects the culture at all, it's just cool and trendy and it makes a statement. I don't think she'd actually go to Saudi Arabia and act like a fool, though, but you never know.
Again referring to the Phillip deFranco episode from last night that covered this topic Holocaust jokes may seem funny and edgy, and you can write it off as not really meaning anything, but it normalizes and belittles the subject. It enables actual Nazis to say "hey, this is ok! Look this guys doing it and he's the most popular youtuber!". It's an incredibly low hanging fruit to make a joke about, the kind of middle school humor that the bulk of his audience probably enjoys I can see how he was trying to be subversive. I get it was a "joke". But I can't help but to think there are still people who lived through the event, and relatives of those lost who can still look back and remember. I don't get what's so funny about "kill all the Jews!", because of the serious implications throughout history of this thought process and the people who do still believe in anti Semitic rhetoric. Maybe he'll learn, I hope he does. I don't think it will kill his career but I don't think defending his stupid jokes is worth it, even if H3H3 is Jewish. Still doesn't erase the implications of the things Pewdiepie is saying.
Miranda will put on a show and change her avatar to protest Americas travel ban, a country she has no relationship to whatsoever, but shrugs at the fact Jamaica has anti gay laws or that Saudi Arabia will flog you for drinking. If you're going to protest unfair laws in a country you're indifferent to, why do you just accept them for countries you favor? What a massive hypocrite she is indeed Paraphrased, but, "just because I like this country doesn't mean I want to live the lifestyle!" She claims, but doesn't realize even if she visits Saudi Arabia she would by default have to live that lifestyle. It is amazing how she's really into the alternative facts, announcing how wrong her haters are and how everything is made up despite the fact she can't argue anything for the life of her
I find it ironic that this is all about Pewdiepie being taken out of context, and people keep taking the old Disney cartoons out of context. I think it was the DeFranco show I was watching, and he mentioned "Disney should be one to talk, they have a cartoon of Donald Duck reading Mein Kampf". But if you would watch the cartoons, it was a nightmare Donald was having where he was living in Nazi Germany. At the end, he wakes up and celebrates being American, it's propaganda. Disney also did Education of Death, another piece of propaganda. I believe they were contracted by the US government to create these cartoons, but I can't 100% recall. Im not really big on Pewdiepie, I'm just stalking around and I keep seeing Disney being lambasted as hypocritics and former Nazi sympathizers. You really can't find much about good ol Walt being an anti Semite, but with how many important historical figures were, it would be unsurprising. That in no way makes it right, my main point is he might have been, it's very plausible, but there's not a whole lot to go on with the "Disney was a nazi" train. Whatever Disneys history may be, they have a reputation now as squeaky clean. It's not the same company it was at its inception, I don't feel like it's appropriate to keep dragging it up as a "hypocritical move". Their motives are just straight up money
Well, when they were in chat and on PULL a couple months ago under the name Lane it certainly did sound like Miranda, but there's always been an air of uncertainty. Also, under the same Kawaii Dolly account, they claimed they were "Mira's ex" and that's why the mods were able to tell it was Mirandas IP address when Lane got banned. Claiming to be an ex is something I think (?) Miranda has done before, and the mods never actually revealed whose IP address it was. I think the most that was said was "huh that's weird" and then asked why exactly we thought it was Mira. That was it. Regardless of if it is or isn't Miranda, I don't think we should give them the time of day. All they're doing is baiting us, and yeah maybe it is her. I wouldn't doubt it, but I'm trying not to believe it without conclusive proof. Also their vendetta is against Nyx, who banned them, Me, whose insulted Mira maybe a little too much, and Pearl, who Miranda has an unhealthy obsession with, makes it seem more likely it's Mira but. Whatever. They're just a troll in the end.
I just came out to have a good time and I'm honestly feeling so attacked right now Really and truly I must have gotten under their skin bad if they're going to specifically call me out. I don't know if it is actually Mira but I've always assumed, who cares at this point. They really. Really need to get a life and stop posting random, angry comments directed at PULL like Easter eggs. Also their obsession with Nyx is weird, all they did was ban Lanes ass, they're not directly involved with this thread. And Pearl? Pearl is just a scapegoat for Mirandas ire because she can't put a name to anyone else's face. Whatever floats your hate boat I guess.
This is the one that fucked me up. I've read a lot of mysterious cases but this one makes no sense to me at all as to why it happened and where she went. I couldn't stop thinking about it for days https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Disappearance_of_Asha_Degree edit: I just realized that this is a murder thread, but this is kinda a cold case. I got overzealous and posted it
