Holy shit this article is bad.
The stuff about Vox and the alt right is correct, but why did they try to tie it into the Vegas shooting? What a jaded, blatant, cynical attempt at clickbait. "The Punisher of Las Vegas", what the actual fuck?
Read this shit. Snip out these paragraphs:
Some kind of reasonable stuff, set up goes here>Your comments came just as the events of Las Vegas forced Netflix to push back the premier date for their TV series out of respect for the dead, and Marvel to cancel a Punisher promotion at the New York Comic-Con. If that weren’t bad enough, Stephen Paddock’s body count was almost entirely white! Hath the creeping vine of political correctness now wrapped itself around the trigger fingers of our nation’s spree killers?
A bunch of stuff I ACTUALLY AGREE WITH goes here>Which brings me back to Stephen Paddock, The Punisher of Las Vegas.
Chuck, with tragedies like Vegas certain to continue rolling across our great Nation, I would like to suggest that your creation for Alt-Hero be a hero who is truly politically incorrect, who will do the things that only the bravest person would do. This hero would be called “The Silencer”.
