This video pretty much nails what I’ve been thinking since 2017. The voice of Roy Campbell (The Colonel in the Metal Gear Solid series) read a snippet of the latest indictment provided by Robert Mueller, as if it were a mission briefing for good ol Solid Snake himself.
It’s kinda funny when you think about it. Metal Gear Solid 2 was a game about how people could easily be controlled by particular information sources and made to feel passionate no matter how right or wrong they are about it (it also had a president that grabbed your crotch because you looked a little too feminine), exactly what we’re going through right now. We have people chanting fake news and only accepting one source as gospel, and if you even so much as try to debunk anything they’ll either try to move the goalpost or retreat to their happy little safe spaces where they can continue to echo whatever they want to believe. This article is a fine example of such a person.
Florine Gruen Goldfarb loves America. She is a real, down-home patriot. So much so that she unwittingly promoted Russian-coordinated events on Facebook in support of Donald Trump. Goldfarb, who runs the Team Trump Broward County Facebook page, was one of the 53 percent of white women who backed Trump in 2016 and likely didn’t need Russia’s help to do it. But CNN reports that she did, in fact, promote pro-Trump events that were encouraged by Russian trolls on Facebook.
These people call themselves patriots, while not caring if the Russians were involved in the 2016 election… To me a real patriot is someone who serves their country. If you’re willing to die for your country, then to me you’re a true fucking patriot. People like her ruin the word patriot for the people who actually deserve to be called as such, and that sickens me to no end.
Anyways, in light of this are we all honorary Metal Gear characters now? O_o
