Brianna Wu’s “Husband” Makes An Ad

Saturday, October 7th, 2017

In case you missed it, far-left anti-#GamerGate “activist” Brianna Wu (birth name: John Walker Flynt) is running for a U.S. congressional seat in Massachusetts.

And Wu’s “husband” make an ad for that campaign:

Many on the Internet say this is an appalling bad and amateurish ad that will harm the Wu campaign.

I disagree.

It is, indeed, appalling bad and amateurish, but that’s sort of the point. As the enduring appeal of the Sharknado film series, and the revival of Mystery Science Theater 3000 (both of which I’m a fan of) can attest, certain modern audiences love schlocky monster movies, and this video has the laughably bad quality that guarantees it will be shared on social media. Would a professional quality video promoting Wu get shared so widely? I think not.

And thinking this will “harm Wu’s campaign” assumes Wu’s campaign might succeed in getting Wu elected to congress in the first place. That was never going to happen. Indeed, I’m already on record as encouraging the Wu campaign to suck money away from Democratic candidates that might actually have a chance of winning. No, Wu’s campaign is all about keeping Brianna Wu in the public eye as some sort of social justice warrior totem, and the money-making opportunities (paltry though they may be) that status enables.

So let this video be seen far and wide throughout the land!
