What is the world coming to when you can get arrested for aggressive shitposting?
A Florida man was arrested Friday for posting a threatening message on social media that said he was going to have his semi-automatic rifle returned and shoppers should avoid Walmart, authorities said.
Richard Clayton, 26, made the threat on Facebook on Aug. 6, writing: “3 more days of probation left then I get my AR-15 back. Don’t go to Walmart next week,” Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) said.
Clayton posted his message just three days after a gunman walked into a Walmart in El Paso, Texas, and killed 22 people.
I almost guarantee you that he also posted, “some of you guys are alright…” as well because the quote that Fox News provided is half of the incantation spell to a famous internet meme.
Clearly, an FBI Boomer trawling the internet for White Supreeemacists saw some kids having fun and decided to ruin their day, as old people are wont to do.
Alternatively, this guy really was planning a mass shooting in Walmart – but where is the proof that he was a White Supremacist?
This is all the proof that is given:
Clayton, of Winter Park, was taken into custody following a joint investigation involving the FDLE, FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force and Winter Park Police Department. He appeared to believe in the white supremacist ideology and had a history of writing threatening messages on Facebook using fake accounts, according to investigators.
What the fuck does that even mean?
How do we know that he just didn’t hate Walmart?
Americans have been wanting to shoot up Walmarts and the people who shop there for years now, and it has nothing to do with the Jewish stranglehold over our country or our feral brownskin population.
Walmart is just an objectively bad place that destroys towns and people’s lives.
South Park even made an episode where the citizens of the town band together to burn the local Walmart down. Should the animation team be arrested for retroactively hating on Walmart – oh wait, sorry I mean “Wall Mart”?
If this isn’t proof of how mainstream hating on Walmart is, I don’t know what is. But oh wait, what’s this? More proof: there’s that popular normie-friendly blog that makes fun of Walmart that everyone and their dog has at least heard of that expresses the same “White Supremacist” ideology as the soon-to-be shooter.
Taking a step back, this is why (if I’m doing a mental red team/blue team exercise in my head) I don’t think that the target that the El Paso shooter chose was really all that bad. See, shooting up a Walmart is just objectively funny.
Again, see South Park:
Even the employees of Walmart would probably think that it’s funny.
Remember: anyone associated with the Walmart experience is, by default, very weird. In fact, I guarantee you that anyone who works at Walmart is far stranger than someone planning to shoot up a Walmart.
Now, some people want to critique soon-to-be shooters for not broadening their thinking when it comes to picking out targets for their pranks.
But I think that this is an unfair and insensitive assessment of the situation.
The lack of creativity starts to make sense when you consider that there are just very few innovative trailblazers in the field of mass shootings. This makes sense when you consider that it is an underpaid and underappreciated field in our society. Because of this, you get one guy with a bright idea who leads the pack – one Steve Jobs of mass shooters, if you will – and then herds of imitators that don’t really understand what made the initial product so successful and fun – visualize Android here – and so churn out imitations of far lower quality that just aren’t appreciated by the public in the same way.
Luckily, the Federal Government is providing subsidies to this vital and growing industry by finding talented mentally-challenged teens online and convincing them to start planning mass shootings.
By subsidizing and encouraging this burgeoning field, the government hopes that the shootings will just continue on their own after the initial investment, without any further government subsidies, allowing the government to focus more of their resources on the burgeoning Police State industry instead.
