On Saturday, comic book artist Ethan Van Sciver appeared at Gotham City Pizza in Ormond Beach, Florida. By all accounts, a good time was had by all. People ate pizza and Ethan signed autographs. Ethan even drew and inked a spectacular looking Batman on a formally blank wall.
Then on Monday, Marco Falleta, the owner and general manager of Gotham City Pizza, discovered that someone damaged the front door. It looks like someone kicked the front door.
Marco described it as an attempted break-in. That was yesterday morning. Since then, the vandalism has been blamed on Social Justice Warriors (SJWs) angry that Gotham City Pizza hosted Ethan Van Sciver on Saturday.
To be clear, Marco isn’t blaming it on SJWs. He doesn’t know who did it or why they did it.
That’s not to say at least some SJWs have a problem with Ethan Van Sciver. Some evidently don’t like him because he’s a Republican. He also received online threats before the event.
Seriously, we live in a world where people threaten other people because they’re a member of one of the two major political parties in this country.
If you’re going to hate Republicans, prepare to hate nearly half the country. Personally, that seems like too much work.
Do I think an SJW traveled down to Ormond Beach and kicked the door of a pizzeria because they hosted Ethan Van Sciver at an event? No, not unless I’m presented with some evidence.
When I hear hoof beats, I think horses, not zebras.
The more likely explanation is that some drunk walking home kicked the door and then drunkenly staggered away. Hopefully, he broke a couple bones in his alcoholic foot.
Someone trying to break in would have arrived with a crowbar and used it to open the door. I don’t think they would have tried to kick the door in.
To blame an SJW for the damage seems like a stretch. Kicking in doors isn’t something SJWs are normally associated with. They tend to send online threats that are never carried out. If they’re feeling overly energetic, they’ll contact someone’s employer in the attempt to get them fired.
Kicking doors? That’s not in the SJW playbook.
I hate to see people immediately jump to the conclusion that an SJW did this. What’s wrong with waiting for the facts before leaping to a conclusion? Jumping to unfounded conclusions is something SJWs like to do. They’re very quick to proclaim something or someone as sexist, racist, homophobic, transphobic, or Islamophobic without a shred of evidence.
I’m assuming Marco Falleta contacted the police. Let the police investigate before jumping to conclusions. Don’t react to things like a Social Justice Warrior. Base your conclusions on facts, not wild speculation.
