Awww, he's an Applejack fan! Makes sense. Good for him!
I'd also like to see him do something for Michael Morones.
There is something promising here. Most will recall my journey away from Libertarianism coincided with my growing love for MLP. Both Glenn Beck and I first embraced Applejack. I forced myself to watch some episodes out of morbid curiosity, and the character that kept me coming back was her. I eventually warmed up to the rest of the characters, and maybe Glenn Beck will give the show a shot as well. After all I'm sure he wants big balls too.

Abandoning libertarianism for MLP is really kind of a lateral move.
I don't see him abandoning libertarianism, and I'm still not convinced either he, or you, were ever a libertarian to begin with. (didn't you once tell me, back on poeNews, that you considered yourself a conservative rather than a libertarian?) I imagine it'd be hard to stay a Republican and social conservative after watching the show, and in that sense I'm looking forward to post-pony Beckster, but the show itself is very third-party friendly, being a mixture of libertarian, green, and shariah ideas.
I considered myself libertarian, though many doubted it. I was sorta a social liberal, supporting gay marriage legalization. My main hinderance was my belief in supply side economics.
This guy is a fucking loon, but he is one hell of an advocate for free speech.
As long as you're not Jeremiah Wright.
I still hated the his rant about diversity at the end.
Word. HA HA! I wonder if Shoebox knows what he just said.
I'm sure he knows. Shoebox is committed to the cause.
Quite aware. Don't really know what I was thinking and currently just feel really dirty.
I think the kid being told to not wear his backpack is retarded, but gimmie a break... the "balls" to be different? He's a fucking little kid getting into a show that a gazillion other kids are into. If he were wearing a backpack with a picture of Nietzsche or something with "GOD IS DEAD" is giant font or something, that would be a bit more interesting.
I wouldn't risk the indian burn. Kid that edgy, he might put a curse on you and not even need DNA to do it.
Besides, the bajillion kids into Nietzsche might be outnumbered at the moment by the gazillion bronies, but they've got a far older and more deeply entrenched fandom behind them. Your best bet is probably to get the little dork into Pinkamena, and hope he snaps out of his Nietzsche phase.
If you think "a bajillion kids are into Nietzsche", you are not at all in touch with today's youth. It's a phase college psych 101 kids go through, the few kids smart enough to read philosophy without it being part of an assignment in middle or high school are not going to be the trendy "hey look I just discovered a new way of thinking" wannabe types, he'd probably be a thoughtful kid.
As a philosophy grad student, I can say that there are plenty of interesting people that are interested in Nietzsche. But, if you run into "that guy" and mention philosophy? Yeah, his favorite philosopher is Nietzsche and BY GOD is he going to tell you about his half-formed angry highschool know-it-all interpretation of Thus Spoke Zarathustra.
(Not poetv's that guy, that that guy is cool.)
Yeah, every highschool know-it-all I ran into as a kid was really, really into Nietzsche, and would eagerly chew your ear off about him. They were usually also into Marilyn Manson and cartoon shows where people got eaten alive.
But maybe you're right, Gmork. Maybe the youth of today have moved on. As an adult, I don't really have my finger on their pulse... but you seem to know a lot about children, so tell me, what ARE kids into these days? Wittgenstein and the Lindy Hop, I'll wager.
They're millennials - they're into themselves, mainly.
"Wow," said the stopped clock. "Has it been twelve hours already?"
But then one minute passed and he began rambling about the evils of diversity like always.

If Jesus were alive, I wonder what his thoughts would be. I wonder what he would feel knowing that his testament was replaced my colorful ponies. Would he feel a tinge of jealousy? Would he feel missed? Would he feel okay about it?
I personally feel he would be a bit perplexed at a rainbow maned horse that lives in the clouds, parodying his father. He wouldn't be angry or sad. Just confused. And to me, I would like to think he'd be okay with that. Because in life, we're often confused. Maybe the entire situation would be nothing at all. Maybe he'd be mad at those taking advantage of the shy pony. And that, to me, is scary, since a lot of people love the idea of being a hero, and sometimes expecting something in return of being said hero. Which makes me believe that Jesus is a closet rapist. So if anything were to happen, is that Jesus would be okay with the show, but we would also have a fear of the lord and savior demanding sex for favors rather than procuring a good deed for the sake of a good deed. And that, to me, and to anyone who looks up to Jesus, is bad.
But what I guess would be the entire point of this is that I'm glad Jesus is dead. It's a good thing. Because otherwise, we'd all feel immensely guilty for enabling the conscience of a closet horse rapist.
If Jesus were alive today, he'd probably end up getting shot dead by one of his faithful.

No one has mentioned his glasses yet. Those goddamn glasses.
The tan, the hairstyle, hair color, baby goatee, glasses and quirky old timey microphone just scream douchebag. He is really in love with himself. The camera slowly panning as he speaks just made me want to puke as he talks about Hasbro's disturbing new marketing hit.
He looks like he should be on the set of Sprockets.
He smells his way back to the top. He'll be wearing ICP makeup and reporting live from Gathering of the Juggaloes next.
Pretty much, this guy will try to grab any demographic he sees fit as long as he can stay "relevant"
he knows snorting cocaine makes you different.
