Mr. Robot Season Finale Postponed Because Of Similarity To Today's Live TV Killings WTF???
"USA Network has made a last-minute decision to pull tonight’s first-season finale of breakout freshman drama Mr. Robot in light of today’s tragic killing of a local news reporter and a cameraman on live TV.

“The previously filmed season finale of Mr. Robot contains a graphic scene similar in nature to today’s tragic events in Virginia. Out of respect to the victims, their families and colleagues, and our viewers, we are postponing tonight’s episode. Our thoughts go out to all those affected during this difficult time,” USA said in a statement."

The more this goes on, the more I think it DID happen...these folks died....it happened live on TV....he did have the issues and he was posting afterwards....but I am wondering if the "manifesto" was quickly created to suit an agenda....it reads almost like the Church Shooting manifesto, just on the other side.....that manifesto from Roof was hosted in Russia, the pics were odd, was a recent site, etc....

Here's a theory


One timeline: Mr robot finale-stock crash-tv shooting is fiction

Alternate: tv shooting goes "live", stocks are up, no finale

What happens next week with China's military parade and the finale, will stocka crash back down again?

So lame. How sensitive are we? Look at all the 9/11 similarities that people don't care about

I bet the USA news networks are showing the video over and over again anyways, what's the difference?

Very strange I guess they don't think their audience can handle the idea that art imitates life.

Or maybe they think that life is imitating their art.

Whatever.

When was the last time a black man every wrote anything other than jumbled ebonics, much less a "manifesto"?

Who has wrote Manifestos...historically speaking?

Socialist Revolutionaries.

Look at the number of GLP threads about this crap today.
Note how it pushed all other news off the MSM.

So many synchronicities between events in the show and events in real life, as others have mentioned above. For instance, the day there was that NYSE "glitch" and American Airlines "glitch" the episode that aired that night focused a lot ok bugs and clutches and them being purposeful. Also there are many more obvious allusions to our reality as well. It really does genuinely seem like the shows creator wants to wake people up to the bull shit. Just look at all their ads and their Twitter feed etc. on top of the content of the show. This is what art/filmmaking/shows/music should be doing, raising consciousness and fighting for humanity.

Step 1. Make one of your television programming (sound out those last two words) shows FOR conspiracy theorist and free thinkers.

Step 2. Get out of hand with the predictive programming and brainwash the people who are supposed to program the brainwashing. Creating a conspiracy inside of a conspiracy on a conspiracy show dor conspiracy theorists.

Step 3. ?????

Step 4. Wall street PROFIT!

I started to lose hope when they pushed the gay agenda in one of the earlier episodes but looking past that the show developed quite nicely and I was really looking forward to the finale.

You know, (and this is counter to most show's agendas), I really feel like that gay scene was used as a vehicle to show one of the numerous ways that particular character descended into complete evil.

I was sorry to see so many here abandon the show for that scene, because a few episodes later, it seemed pretty clear to me what they were trying to portray with that particular debauchery.

BTW, USA says it'll air next week, let's hope they're not gonna cut the scene in question.
