“childless single men who masturbate to anime.”
Well, no. Both of us are married with more than one kid. Both of us are into anime, obviously, especially Baloo, who puts the quibcags together, but it's not a fetish for either of us. Our tastes overlap, but Baloo tends to like the cuter sort of anime, like Ranma ½ (らんま½) and Stella Women's Academy, High School Division Class C3" (特例措置団体ステラ女学院高等科Ｃ3部, while I tend more towards adventure stuff like Detective Conan, AKA Meitantei Conan (名探偵コナン) and Gin Tama (銀魂 Gintama, lit. "Silver Soul"). I'll leave you to decide which of us is the more "fetishy."
And, no, "I" am not responsible for the Trump-Anime thing, though I certainly get a kick out of it. I don't know who first decided to put Trump hats on Anime girls, but it was a great idea. Below we have a piece analyzing all this, but I'll put my two cents worth in first.
The MAG (Media, Academia, Government), not to be confused with MAGA (Make America Great Again) because they're basically completely opposite, hates anything it doesn't control. It doesn't mind opposition, as long as it's controlled opposition. Past Presidents the MAG feared that it couldn't control include Nixon, Carter, and Bush the First. All three were brought down. And candidates like Goldwater, Wallace, and Buchanan never got anywhere largely because they were perceived as uncontrollable. And right now Mr. Uncontrollable is Trump, who is saying all sorts of taboo things that the MAG really hates, like not intervening in the Middle East, not bringing in millions more immigrants, working together with Putin instead of trying to pick a fight, and eschewing political correctness AKA cultural Marxism.
This is why both branches of the MAG, the Establishment Democrats and the Establishment Republicans oppose Trump and want Hillary elected, though the Republicans have to be a little subtle about that lest the Republican voters catch on. Trump is probably the least controllable candidate in my lifetime. And, for that matter, being produced in mysterious Japan, Anime is uncontrollable and downright incomprehensible.
So the combination of Trump and Anime is especially unnerving to the MAG. At the Right Stuff [link], Lawrence Murray has this to say about it all:
Make Anime Great Again
In his piece, Michaelson drew anti-Semitic context from the anime series itself. According to Michaelson, Asuka, within the context of the larger narrative of Neon Genesis Evangelion, symbolized a “warrior” against an insidious “global Jewish conspiracy,” epitomized in the series as the evil organization SEELE. Michaelson concluded that anti-Semitic themes apparent in Neon Genesis Evangelion draw from a wider phenomenon of Japanese anti-Semitism (or philo-Semitism, depending on your point of view.)
It all started last January, when a disgruntled Republican political consultant, Rick Wilson appeared on MSNBC’s “All In” to give his two cents on the rise of Donald Trump and his anti-Semitic, alt-right supporters. Since Trump’s rise as the presumptive Republican presidential candidate, Wilson been a fierce critic of Trump and a prominent leader of the #NeverTrump movement within the GOP. When Wilson was asked about Trump’s supporters on “All In,” Wilson explicitly expressed his disgust when he said that most of Trump’s supporters were “childless single men who masturbate to anime.”
According to chat boards on Stormfront, a “white nationalist, white supremacist” internet forum, anti-Semites have an unusual affinity for Japanese anime, because, as one user puts it, “Japanese cartoons mostly celebrate the white race and our mythology. They have a weird fascination with us like some whites have for the red man. They are also 100% Talmud free content. They glorify us.”
Quibcag: Need you ask? The girl in the hat is Asuka of Neon Genesis Evangelion (Japanese: 新世紀エヴァンゲリオン Hepburn: Shin Seiki Evangerion?, literally "Gospel of a New Century")
