It's not 2016 (I mean maybe a little), it's gamergate, it's 2015. Every single thing on the internet is now a battle in the culture war. Every single element of fandom drama is now delineated along political lines.
If you don't say nigger during the stream, the SJWs win. At least, that's what these retards think. People weren't so keen in 2011 to get angry at the buffalo because nobody gave a fuck. Now, people see debates over Columbus Day in their ponies or whatever and think that screaming shit is the only way to get their opinion in.
