THE AMANDA FUCKING PALMER NON CONTROVERSY

I’ve seen some odd things go viral on the terrestrial Internet over the past decade but the reaction to the poem written by Amanda Fucking Palmer in response to the Boston Marathon Bomber manhunt. I’d never heard of Palmer before this and likely would have never heard of her had she not written this poem. I’d personally like to thank her for putting a human face on the events as she saw them in the last hours of the manhunt. I believe, and yes this is just my personal opinion, that what has delighted her supporters and shocked and angered Amanda Fucking Palmer’s detractors is that every now and then the average person and the Human Beings need to be reminded by way of art in some form that even the most brutal acts of violence are done by people not simply by movements that can be bombed into pieces.

Those that see this as the ultimately most frightening thing in the world will shout at the top of their lungs always to stop hearing the whisper that says, “this could have easily been you, or your brothers or your children.” To them I say embrace the beauty of the poem and let your mind be at peace. To those that know that all humans are capable of violence I say, “Never stop reminding the Right that all Men are potential murderers.”

Qu’ul cuda praedex nihil!
