So my friend links me something and says "check this out, it's funny"

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L-kDyWU5Jos

I was not amused.

DooM got enough flak from that stupidass Columbine shooting, and then some piece of shit decides to make this. I mean I can tolerate distasteful things to a point, but this is just awful.


If this has already been addressed somewhere on the forum, please lock, merge, or delete this thread, thank you.

This was posted on the DWF Facebook page last week. As I said in the comments there, the KFC pickups make the Brutal Doom scandal look like nothing.

I thought that was kind of funny.

I'm actually surprised the whole Dorner fiasco hadn't popped-up here in EE.

I mean I can understand satire, but there's a difference between satire and shit, and this is shit.

The line between satire and shit is completely subjective from person to person. When you find a work of satire to be shit, chances are, you're the one that it's aimed at.

This whole WAD is /pol/'s way of making fun of who they deem as Liberal.

Haha, that was pretty dumb. Distasteful, sure. Offensive? Maybe. Big deal? Not really.

I guess I just over-reacted because I live in Southern Californiar and had been hearing all this stuff live on the radio for over a week.


If anything, I'm surprised how quickly somebody made this.

It's trying so hard to be offensive that it somehow stops being offensive.

I'm feeling extremely oblivious as to what this is all about. Ok. So I checked into it a bit.

Well. knowing some of the back story it makes more sense to me what is going on.

Now. Satire? Hardly. Racist, yes. Stupid, yes. Offensive? Possibly, I'll leave that for someone else to answer, but most likely.

Also, just because something is intended as satire, doesn't mean that it is. And because something is satire, doesn't mean that it's not shit. So Technician, easy with the wide strokes of the generalization brush there. There are plenty of so called "satire" that I find to be in poor taste, shit or whatnot without being the target of the satire. Just like you can find satire funny even if it's your position that is being satirized (though mostly in cases of positions you don't necessarily care as deeply about).

Pretty much, it just becomes really stupid and in turn, sad and pathetic. You end up feeling sorry for the poor sod who put it together and uploaded to youtube.

Actually, it is. One's perception of satire is represented through how they perceive a certain situation/scenario, so - like I said - it's completely subjective to the group it's intended for. If you have lurked /pol/ during this whole fiasco, you'd be chuckling; one half of the community saw him as a sort of crusader, while the more conservative side saw him as a nigger, thus reason enough to hate. The author referenced both parties well while packaging it in a a way to ignite the reactionary group that /pol/ paints as Liberals.

wth is /pol/? Regardless, then it's satirizing the /pol/ forum-goers's (I presume it is a forum) seemingly retarded positions on the situation. IE, an inside joke. So hardly surprising noone else is "getting it".

The creator is a racist jackass.

I'm guessing it's a subreddit on 4chan.

Maybe just a bit.

Krispy: He made a really racist joke in a .txt file, I think. Essel then proceeded to go Al Franken on his ass in [the creator]'s own thread. It wasn't pretty...

Its shitty and meant to be as insulting as possible to get the most reaction and hits. See the Columbine RPG.

At least in the Columbine RPG, they go to hell for their actions. Then you get to fight Doom monsters. I can't seem to find that part on Youtube for some reason.

Seems you never heard of White Power/Nazi Doom before:



Been around since at least 1998, as far as I can recall.

Also, Ethnic Cleansing:



Or ZOG's Nightmare:

I always thought the Chris Dorner case was less about race and more about retarded trigger happy cops that went on a shooting spree, seeing how quick they were to open fire before identifying their other "suspects" I can't say I'm surprised to find out about his death.

We can be thankful they didn't take him out with a drone missile and kill other people with him, like they do in the Middle East.

I think you're giving this WAD more attention than it deserves.
