      The funniest part of the story [for me.]

      He posted on Twitter about his magnificent car collection, and Greta Thunberg posted back that he was a giant manchild [ or words to that effect] Offended, he got into a flame war. Meanwhile, there’s an NGO called GRETA, which works against trafficking. Someone tells Andy that he’s on GRETA’s radar. Incensed, he posts a video that gives clues to his location. The police use that video to find and arrest him.

      If he’d acted like the powerful leader he aspires to be, he would have ignored the posts. Instead, he took the bait and got caught, just like a little fish

        The reality is, the police knew he was in Romania, and they knew that he owns property in Romania. When you fly into a country, the government knows. He was already under investigation and the arrest just coincidentally synchronized with the pizzabox photo.

          Iirc they knew he was in Romania, but not where in Romania. The pizzabox photo let them call the store to ask the address of the delivery.

        Quite unlike a giant manchild, of course. True aLpHa BeHaViOr!

          It’s one of the lessons he teaches his students/acolytes; the person who speaks less in a meeting is the one in control. Too bad he couldn’t learn his own lesson.

            Wow, I had no idea I was in control so much. As opposed to being invited to meetings I don’t need to be on and have nothing useful to contribute to.

        You’re leaving out what the evidence was HE DOXXED HIMSELF WITH A PIZZA BOX YOU CANT MAKE THIS SHIT UP

      Yeah, it’s comically bad how false the allegations are, tho.

      …despite this dude being a fuckwit, he didn’t do any human trafficking.

    I’d would really like some sort of ad blocker that would block anything related to this dweep.

      Can we customize this service to also block Joe Rogan and Jordan Peterson? I can’t seem to block enough of their shit to keep them from my feeds, and it drives me nuts.

    The car is a symbol of financial freedom, something I think a lot of people aspire to.

      If anything, it is the bicycle. No taxes, no license, no expensive vendor-locked repairs, all features perpetually unlocked, basically all-terrain, runs on breakfast and determination.

        Financial Freedom were the friends we made along the way

        I agree, I commute by bike. But being able to buy a luxury car probably means you have a sizable disposable income and don’t have to worry about everyday expenses.

        You just described the opposite of financial freedom though?

      And why do you associate the car with freedom? Because marketing has made you associate cars with freedom. Its terrifying the amount of thoughts that are put in people’s head by advertising. Lots of those in marketing have psychology degrees.

        I guess I wasn’t clear. A car in general is not freedom. But being able to afford a luxury vehicle like a Lamborghini probably means you have enough money to not worry about everyday expenses. That is something a lot of people want.

        Personally, I hate cars. I bike as much as I can.

      If that car was a old beat up converted out semi-liveable van then yes, actually. All an expensive luxury car is a symbol of is huge maintenance cost and a tiny dick

      People stuck in traffic for 2 hours everyday: “So much freedom!” Don’t get me wrong, I’m not against someone having nice things; but the fact that this guy made half of his identity having said things (and the other half being a sadistic, misogynistic monster) makes mocking him much funnier.
