This is one topic on which I have previously and still must partially agree with Jake. Many of the talking heads are simply ignorant even though they'll blame all sorts of ridiculous things like video games, music, bullying. A lot of myths were created by Columbine and the one where these two guys were video-game playing misfits in the 'trenchcoat mafia' that went to school to kill the jock bullies that tormented them is particularly pernicious and still incorrectly colors the topic.Jake Googleshnged after getting triggered by an NPR report about school shooters, insists that he knows the real truth and all the experts are wrong.
That said, he goes from knowing a little to going off the rails by pretending to know a lot. Because of course nothing bad in this world can happen without it somehow being about GamerGate... even if it's something that happened 15 years before. If Jake Alley reads a book about the Civil War he will somehow decide that, no, it wasn't just about slavery but in fact it was about the same incel white right-wing movement that would later become GAMERGATEEEEE!
