Disasters like this are not seen every day. In a live ‘Digimon Tamers’ script reading, the digidestined fought back against political correctness.
The DigiFest 2021 event brought together fans of the ‘Digimon’ franchise last Sunday, August 1, to celebrate that ‘Digimon Tamers’ turns 20 years since its first broadcast in Japan.
As usual, a panel of special guests, including the voices of the protagonists and the scriptwriter of the saga, Chiaki J. Konaka, gathered to give fans a live reading presentation of the saga.
The big difference on this occasion is that instead of representing one of the most emblematic scenes of ‘Digimon Tamers’, Konaka prepared an original script, in which children in today’s world battled against concepts such as the culture of cancellation and what politically correct.
In history we find that these represent “The biggest problem facing the Internet and the media, because it forces people to conform to a single value system and censor real news to replace it with fake news.”
In the face of this short-lived enemy, digitally disposed children are reluctant at first, at least until the culture of cancellation takes real form and must be fought against.
A spectacle that was before our eyes without knowing it
Digesting what happened at DigiFest 2021 is not easy, especially if you are not familiar with the positions of the American right, which were the banner of the presidency of Donald J. Trump.
Conspiracy theories, the loss of credibility not only to what the press or the internet says, but even to specialists in the field of medicine have become something of the day to day and everything indicates that Kanaka took the pill.
The proof of this is not only in the funny and bizarre interpretation of the evil of “our times”, apparently the screenwriter had already stepped on this terrain through his personal blog in which he feeds these ideas.
For months now, Kanaka has written how what we know as “politically correct” has interfered with the world and critical thinking, fueling conspiracy theories such as the fall of the Twin Towers and the assassination of Osama Bin Laden as a “hoax” of the US government. .
As for the crisis due to the pandemic, he refers to it as “COVID 9/11”, while explaining how he no longer believes in those experts in medicine in areas such as epidemiology, bacteriology and biology.
Although Kanaka emphasizes that he is only a writer, he makes it clear that from now on his ideals will be expressed in his works, as a sign that madness in the United States is not only contagious, but is capable of reaching to the most unexpected corners.
