Nerd News: Gamer in Politics, Demonized for playing World of Warcraft (WoW)

I Tweeted about this yesterday,

Here is link to Republican Flyer attacker her 

I have uploaded and inserted it below, in case it "disappears" from the link, since this was a political flyer pretty sure I should be able to reproduce the image for comment!  [The image is also on the Ars site.]

Today Colleen Lachowicz has responded

Lots of things bother me about the Republican flyer.

First of all, that IS my world, Esports & Gaming!

If the Republicans, who paid for and wrote this flyer, took any time to learn about Gamers & gaming, instead of viewing people through the eyes of a bigot, they might actually realize what kind of message they are sending.

But then perhaps they do realize what kind of message they are sending?  They spent money and time on it after all.

Also, they don't have a clue about DPS?!?  That is Damage Per Second as anyone that even Googled it would know,

For those that don't know, the use of Brackets ie "[]" inside the quotation means it was inserted by the person doing the flyer, not from the original comment.

See these links on Brackets and Grammer for more detail:
Honestly seeing those types of errors, in basic simple research, that I  have taught Elementary age students to do, makes me wonder if these Republicans are smarter than a 4th grader?

Do you want people that limited in research skills or knowledge to be making laws?

Especially when they hate other people for just being different from their group?
