Brianna Wu Makes It (Almost) Official: Run for Congress Happening in 2018

I can’t wait to witness this clusterfuck. Brianna Wu is in the headlines once again, and the mainstream media is actually pretending like she’s not 100% batshit crazy.

For instance, VentureBeat plays it completely straight…

Brianna Wu, a game developer who stood up for women facing harassment in the game industry, has decided to run for the U.S. House of Representatives. She hasn’t officially announced she will run yet, but she posted the picture below on her Facebook page earlier today. And she confirmed via email that she is serious.

Wu, a Democrat, said the campaign for hasn’t officially kicked off yet, but she is assembling a team of advisers to help set her agenda.

“My main agenda will be economic. Here in Massachusetts, taxpayers spend an amazing amount on subsidizing education – particularly with infrastructure. But then students and entrepreneurs take that investment by our state to San Francisco or Austin,” she said. “I think we can do a much better job keeping startups here in our state. Also, look at the game industry, which has been devastated here in Boston with the loss of Irrational and others.

“I’d hope to serve on the House technology subcommittee. It was very disturbing to me to see members of the House tie the Mirai botnet (malware that hijacks computers) to the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA), simply parroting special interests. It’s an example of how our tech policy doesn’t serve the American people. We need people making policy that actually understand technology, that understand the assault on our privacy. It’s a national security issue, and we’re failing badly.”

Lol.

I’m not sure what Wu thinks has been won, exactly. Her preferred candidate for president, Hillary Clinton, lost in one of the most humiliating upsets in American political history. Wu put out some trashy game and got verified on Twitter (so did I, minus the trashy game part). On what planet does that qualify as a victory?

This whole thing is madness. I’m still not 100% convinced that it’s anything but a media stunt. This nutcase will do literally anything for attention. I could definitely see Wu pulling back at the last minute. Then again, even a losing campaign (which this one will almost certainly be) would net the loon some more media coverage, which is what she craves. I don’t see why the media is taking this so seriously…except for the fact that it gives them cheap headlines. I guess I can’t shit all over that either, since I’m writing about it too. But the point is I wouldn’t be if they weren’t playing Wu up as some kind of legitimate political threat. Brianna is talking about running in Massatuchtess, so presumably she will have to go up against an entrenched Democrat who has all kinds of political support and capital.

I, for one, don’t like Wu’s chances. I do like our chances to laugh our asses off at this if it actually happens, though.

    Lolno. John Flynt is no sort of woman!

  • Maintenance Renegade

    Yeah the first step would be ousting a sitting democrat, now granted that being the case alot of the MA democrats in Congress aren’t much more dignified than Wu but it’ll still be an uphill battle. Then again in the right MA district the whole “I’m a tranny and the internet made fun of me” platform might very well get some momentum.

    Could be good for some lulz but don’t expect anything but a failed primary run and a whole lot of beg-a-thons.

  • jlenoconel

    She won’t get anywhere. Mentally ill people don’t get to run for congress.

  • GuitarAnthony

    Massachusetts is already a fucked state. What’s another ass reaming to them?

    Certainly this development would create a lifetime supply of lolcow milk for all of GG, but keep in mind this is Massachusetts we’re talking about. One of our senators is Fauxcahontas (Liarwatha, Chief Spreading Bull) after all. And we got Romneycare before the nation got Obamacare.

    Unless she’s hiding out in the Batcave these days, Wu would be in the 5th congressional district, meaning she’s have to oust Katherine Clark (https://www.govtrack.us/congress/members/katherine_clark/412600), which would be odd since they’re (dodo) birds of a feather. Note that Clark has sponsored the “Interstate Doxxing Prevention Act” (https://www.govtrack.us/congress/bills/114/hr6478) which is currently in committee. So the batshit gradient from Clark to Wu is not all that steep.

  • wombat

    She IS aware the only people who would vote for her are so-called “Gamergaters”, right?

  • Wu has minimal support even within the social justice community where she appears to be regarded as a liability. She’ll fall at one of the early hurdles, which I think is probably the intent. She’s been pretty one-note. I think this about preserving the victim-hood narrative that will keep her in the public eye and stimulate cash flow into a Patreon or some other funding platform.

    Running for office allows her to up the levels of drama that have been her hallmark and are histrionic even in comparison to the claims of her almost as mentally unbalanced peers. My prediction is that, if this gets off the ground at all, Wu will, at some point, announce that she has received a credible threat of assassination.

    • GodBowser

      If she only has minimum support and and is also considered a liability by other SJW’s will any of them especially the ones that are anti Gamer Gate be voting for who ever is running against her out of spite

  • Mykeru

    2017 hasn’t even started yet but it looks fun.

  • Danlantic

    Cograts to her. She can get donations out of this. Then probably get prosecuted by the FEC for redirecting it to her purse.

    Or better yet, get the donations and never do the formal filing. Or deal with the certain primary winner to get an appointment in return for dropping her campaign.

    Lots of ways to sleaze by.

    Oh fuck….Id better retrofit some heavy duty KeK Buffers on my Lulzometer 2000 then….

  • DisneyVillain

    So damn funny I almost died.

  • Botiemaster

    He fought the alt right and won? LMFAOOMGLOLOLOLOL WOW. What reality does he live in? The way I see it, we got bored of him because he was a 3rd waver. I’m sorry dude, but you were in the same league as SRHBUTTS. You were never Anita Sarkeesian nor in her league. You never posed a threat, really. All you did was bait gamers everyday trying to get some kind of harassment thrown your way for victim bucks. What, did you think the reason we stopped caring about your baiting was because you won? Won what? the Troll Championships? I guess you’re right. You did win that. You earned it. You worked overtime to troll GamerGate endlessly. Give us a few weeks. We’ll design a trophy for you and ship it your way. I bet you’ll like it. It’ll be quite appropriate.

    Brianna Wu/Melissa Click should be the democrats’ candidates for the 2020 election.

    • Willie Christianson

      Then the Republicans have nothing to worry about.

  • Amanda Childress

    Who is she running against? What district? Time to volunteer IT support, she is cancer, and the CNN Tech piece was not researched. Twitted the 12 year old writer, she will not be happy with me but the gender feminist agenda of CNN has to be replaced with serious journalism. Wu needs to be stopped.

  • Iso

    That’s what got me. How the Hell did she take on the Al-Right and “Win”? This thing isn’t living in the real world!

  • lancesackless

    I was wondering why, out of the blue, she started using the #gamergate hashtag again in her tweets.

    Now it makes sense. A. recent Boston Globe article on this mentioned that since she “announced”, she’s receiving death threats from GG again. She’s once again poking the hornets nest for personal gain.

    What. An. Attention. Whore

  • Kellen Joel

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Even the poster is bullshit. The Alt-Right DESTROYED her!
