Hello there. My name is Ed Sandwich. A few weeks ago I emailed the admin of diehipster.com about a video I shot about the Mast Bros. I wanted to show him that there are good people in the world who look like hipsters. And then 350 posts later, the comment page was closed – as I was destroyed. And banned. You can find a link to it here at http://www.diehipster.com. Overall the blog is homophobic, anti-semetic, and just kind of really evil. And also important, on-point, and without BS.
When you take out all the hate and bitterness it shows the underlying hatred towards gentrification and “hipsters” by other people. It’s expressing real concerns in this day and age of Political Correctness.
The commentors of the site fall under a weird category – they are liberal in beliefs but they disagree with Group-Think that celebrates the genetrification of neighborhoods. In essence they are free-thinkers- incredibly rare in this day and age.
But at the same time, they are mean. Like really really mean. Go on there and see. You can get destroyed by these little guys. So let’s talk about them from slightly afar. I have to – cause I’m exiled.
