It's not.

I'm disagreeing with the idea that anything he's done has particularly changed that calculation, including the possibility that a minuscule percentage of Colin's Patreon income will come from a minuscule percentage of Danny's Patreon income. More than that, I just don't see much good coming from a significant backlash in this case. The most likely scenario, in my mind, is that it would unnecessarily demonize/punish/push away someone who otherwise has always seemed pretty comfortable on our side of things, and be a boon to all the wrong people.

In any case, there are a million potential reasons to stop supporting a Patreon, and my intention isn't to convince anyone to give Danny their money. Just discussing the overall scenario surrounding the sudden burst of negative Danny posts.

So weird for him to come out as anti immigration. I know whose twitter I'm unfollowing!

I don't and have not given Danny money. It's easy for me to understand why someone would stop however. Actions speak louder than words. For all his talk, giving money to someone opposed to diversity outweighs what he says on Twitter and elsewhere.

Well, that's a bummer. I too removed my (admittedly meager $5) pledge because of this. I completely understand wanting to support a friend, but yeah, Colin has said some absolute garbage, not only recently. I see no reason to throw a fiver somebodies way when they then turn around and give some portion of that back to a person like Colin. I've loved Danny's content, and wish him well, but nah. Not worth it.

The title is funny in an ironic way. I know for a fact Colin is very well versed in US History. But, if Colin's Last Stand is, in fact, a play on Custer's Last Stand. Well, that didn't work out too well for old General Custer.

After the Civil War, Custer remained a major general in the United States Volunteers until they were mustered out in February 1866. He reverted to his permanent rank of captain and was appointed a lieutenant colonel in the 7th Cavalry Regiment in July 1866. He was dispatched to the west in 1867 to fight in the American Indian Wars. On June 25, 1876, while leading the 7th Cavalry Regiment at the Battle of the Little Bighorn in Montana Territory against a coalition of Native American tribes, he and all of his detachment—which included two of his brothers—were killed. The battle is popularly known in American history as "Custer's Last Stand." Custer and his regiment were defeated so decisively at the Little Bighorn that it has overshadowed all of his prior achievements.

Though, according to the Atari 2600, he did get his revenge ;p

I wonder how MLB 17 is going to fare this year, at least early on. It's typically well regarded critically and is always a top seller, but it seems like this year there are so many good games out.

Well it made a deal with the devil, so I'm sure it'll be fine. There are some side effects from that deal though.
