We’re told that a woman shot up the headquarters of Youtube yesterday.

Now, Berg’s 19th Law is still in effect, so we won’t know much just yet; NPR and CNN are trying to tie it to the ownership of guns in general, naturally; never waste a crisis!

Of course, I suspect fake news; the shooter, one Nasim Aghdam, was said to have fired twenty shots – but California banned large magazines, so that couldn’t have happened.


Aghdam has a robust presence on YouTube. In a video posted in January 2017, she says You Tube “discriminated and filtered” her content. In the video Aghdam says her channel used to get lots of views but that after being filtered by the company, it received fewer views. In a Facebook post from February 2017 Aghdam blasted YouTube saying, “There is not equal growth opportunity on You Tube.”

Now, Berg’s 19th Law says we shouldn’t jump to conclusions, especially not based on the media’s current reporting, which will be sensationalist and likely biased.


The NBC Bay Area Investigative Unit has also learned the license plate on a car towed from YouTube’s campus Tuesday is registered to Aghdam. In 2014, she posted a video on YouTube of what appears to be the same car, stating that it was vandalized by “anti-vegans” because the car had a sign saying “meat is murder.”

So she’s a liberal.

You may argue – but care to place a bet?

Oh yeah – the warnings were there.

It must have been the gun.

  1. I’m guessing mentally ill. Yes, her politics look liberal, but some of what she’s done suggests she’s a few fries short of a Happy Meal. And praise God, she apparently wasn’t a terribly good shot, except on herself.

  2. Some news reports claim she was angry YouTube would no longer let her make money from her videos (not politically correct enough).

    Whether or not that’s true in her specific case, I wonder if wedding cake bakers and pizza parlor owners feel that way when their businesses are destroyed by virtue-signaling mobs of boycotters and one-star raters?

    Every artist mocks Catholics but nobody draws cartoons of Mohammad anymore. What would happen if enraged business owners adopted her method of dispute resolution?

  3. I don’t suspect we’ll ever see a return to the days when there is not a through line from anger to a gun.

  4. “I don’t suspect we’ll ever see a return to the days when there is not a through line from anger to a gun.”

    yes emery the 14th century marked the beginning of one long unending river of blood shed by malevolent firearms that has not abated even in these enlightened times.

    What a load of rubbish! Where did you copy that pithy little gem from?

  5. It is not normal to shoot strangers when you are angry. It is not normal to shoot yourself when you are angry.
    Doing so is a sign of mental illness, not anger.

  6. What YouTube shooting? It is a travel day for me today and I didn’t get to check the news until 4:00 p.m. I was just on the front page of the Strib site – no mention whatsoever, even in the small headlines. Are you sure this happened?

  7. It seems that the lame streams dropped this story pretty quickly. I mean, once they found out that it was a woman, with an Arabic sounding name, using a hand gun, their meme was destroyed.

  8. So, this was basically an immigrant shooting a bunch of other immigrants?

  9. “It will disappear before the 19th Law waiting period expires”

    Forget it Jake, its google!

    google is the ultimate memory hole, google doesn’t want anyone looking too closely at the predatory nature of their youtube monopoly, To maintain their pristine reputation google “tunes” the search parameters so stories about the incident don’t show up in the first couple pages of results and by the end of the week it will be like it never happened.
    While the shooter was the bad actor of the story, google is the real villain.

  10. Yea, Swiftee Bot! And no large capacity magazines, either!

    Again, meme destroyed!

  11. Imagine if this had been a skinhead or “white nationalist” that did this. It would be front page news for weeks. But it doesnt fit the MSM narrative so it is literally buried as a story after 2 freaking days. But remember everyone they are fair and unbiased, because they tell us that…
