Quote# 125493

[Mod note: this is referring to an incident where someone triggered an epileptic seizure in someone, on purpose, using a strobe gif. As such, it is not fundie, but is being left up for posterity's sake]

The mean-spirited tweet is analogous to a package in which a bomb is concealed.

Your skull is analogous to a box with nothing in it.

Um, guys, this comment is referring to a tweet that contained a flashing strobe picture designed to set off epileptic seizures in people sensitive to that, that was sent to Newsweek writer Kurt Eichenwald (who has a history of such seizures), with the express intent to cause him to have a seizure because he was writing anti-Trump articles. In that respect, this isn't fundie; it's fully accurate.

This isn't a quote about a random rude tweet. It's about an attempt to cause someone to have a seizure with a .gif sent in a tweet. Unfortunately, it's a pretty accurate comparison.

Ah. Retracted, then. I often can't bring up sites with interfaces of a more complex nature (like Twitter or Discus-based comment sections) on this device and so must rely on the content of the quote and other commenters for context. Weird wording, though, using "the" instead of "that" or "their".

Then Trump is analogous to the US 7th bomber wing.

This shouldn't be here: It's referencing a tweet that was a sent to a liberal journal with severe epilepsy. The tweet was intentionally formatted to cause a seizure, and the guy ended up in the hospital. It really is a form of assault.
