It sounds ridiculous--but these are the times we live in. Cartoonist and deep-thinker Scott Adams, the creator of the widely read 'Dilbert' came out, initially in favor of (or, at least, very impressed with) Donald Trump. A student of persuasion and neuro-linguistics, Adams identified Trump's use of advanced persuasion techniques as key to his success and predicted Trump Wins in a Landslide.
So I’ve decided to endorse Hillary Clinton for President, for my personal safety. Trump supporters don’t have any bad feelings about patriotic Americans such as myself, so I’ll be safe from that crowd. But Clinton supporters have convinced me – and here I am being 100% serious – that my safety is at risk if I am seen as supportive of Trump. So I’m taking the safe way out and endorsing Hillary Clinton for president.
Was this just him being hyperbolic, whiny, or passive-aggressive? We wondered about that (was he still bitter about the failure of his food-item, the Dilberito?). We asked around--had anything happened? Were there threats? At first our answer was "no"--but then someone sent us the above picture with some notes.
The reality is that women are treated differently by society for exactly the same reason that children and the mentally handicapped are treated differently. It’s just easier this way for everyone. You don’t argue with a four-year old about why he shouldn’t eat candy for dinner. You don’t punch a mentally handicapped guy even if he punches you first. And you don’t argue when a women tells you she’s only making 80 cents to your dollar. It’s the path of least resistance. You save your energy for more important battles.
Like most men ahead of their times, this kind of real-talk will draw a lot of heat. Some of it might even be the violent type. We can't argue with the logic--but he's a brave man to say it under his own name. This, combined with his insights (he's a trained hypnotist) on Trump and persuasion might just make him an attractive target for angry feminists.
That's where the communication we received gets frightening. According to our source, in Pleasanton California, the Valerie Soalnas 'FemJitsu' Academy, mere minutes from where Scott Adams makes his home: The Valerie Solanas FemJitsu Academy. An amateurish website, it appears to be a real training school with a hastily removed address and contact section.
It promises a fighting style geared towards not just physically hurting--but psychologically destroying men.
This was a list of included classes:
Their "Yin/Yang Logo"
Scary stuff. Looking at the image of armed women with Feminist Power icons on their black ninja uniforms, we see that there is, in fact, an image of Scott Adams on the wall.
OUR CONCLUSION: He wasn't joking. He was really threatened.
