Overall, I would have to admit that I was impressed and entertained by Young Smoot's efforts. He managed to capture and package together a collection of some of the most common foibles of "Millennial Ex-Mormons" or, more generally, disaffected and ex-LDS folk, who populate the Internet with their complaints about the LDS Church.
Here are some highlights (many of which apply equally well to the ranks of amateur apologists):
1. Remember, all of your ideological opponents are acting in bad faith
Rule number one of any ideological warfare is the delegitimization of your opponent. For your new purposes, that means delegitimizing faithful Mormons (or, as you're hereby required to pejoratively call them, "TBM"s or "true believing Mormons") as insincere, conniving, avarice-soaked, unscrupulous, brainwashed, emotionally-stunted idiots who only continue to believe in the face of the CES Letter because of social or monetary reward.
2. Don't think too hard about this stuff. After all, homework is for squares
One trick the TBM apologist typically tries to pull is to encourage you to do some reading and research beyond the CES Letter and Mormon Stories podcasts.
4. Root out conspiracy (even where it doesn't exist)
We live in a dangerous world where dangerous forces are lurking in every corner. No institution, however, is more dangerous than TSCC. You must, therefore, quickly learn to implicitly trust those authorities who, out of their sense of moral duty to the good of humanity, have infiltrated the nefarious cabal of TSCC and have returned to Reddit to (anonymously, of course) report their findings. No time to waste seeing if the person's claimed identity as President Monson's personal assistant's cousin is legit. You have those poor wretches in the pews to save from the clutches of The Brethren.
All of this was quite fun, and I think it manages to lampoon fairly well many of the characteristics of MDB culture, depending upon the target.
Young Smoot is still young in this business, however, and he is finding his footing. One thing I have noticed about his persona is his tendency to ape his hero, DCP. Unfortunately this applies equally well to his ill-advised use of images of minorities. In section #2, where Smoot pokes fun at Millennial Ex-Mormons for being too lazy to read the scholarship that would validate, or at least render plausible, the truth claims of the LDS Church, Young Smoot chooses the image of an urban black woman to give voice to the laziness of Millennial Ex-Mormons. The meme's message reads: "Ain't Nobody Got Time For That."
You can see it for yourself in his blog entry:
My advice to Young Smoot would be to keep all of the other great material and jettison this unfortunate choice of memes. Yes, you may get some chuckles from people who are racist but apparently don't understand all that racism involves, or really what the word means, but I ask you, "Is it worth being pegged as a racist yourself?"
The clear answer is, "No."
