What Parents Are Now Spending Money on to Help Kids Win at Video Games Will Make You Fear For The Future

Published

One of the few spaces left in the world where a person cannot earn an achievement just by showing up to the field is video games. Alas, liberal parents, who are highly skilled in entitlement thinking, have managed to find a way to stroke the delicate egos of their own precious snowflakes and it’s ridiculous.

Apparently, parents are now hiring video game coaches to help kids get better at sitting on their butts and twiddling their thumbs. This is the world we live in now, ladies and gentlemen.

According to GameRant, there are more than 1,400 Fortnite coaches available for hire, most advertising on social media, including on the video game-centric social network, Twitch. For a three-to-four hour lesson, coaches can charge an average of $20 per hour, or $50 for a full, afternoon-long training session.

In some cases, parents are even hiring the coaches for themselves, so they can see what the fury surrounding the epic “battle royale” game is all about (and so they can go toe-to-toe with their teenagers).

It may sound strange, hiring a “coach” to teach a kid how to play a game that involves nearly no physical activity, but parents don’t just see personal success, they see dollar signs. Fortnite tournaments, where elite players battle each other, often in huge arenas adapted for “e-sports,” can earn winners upwards of $100,000.

One Fortnite streamer, codenamed “Ninja,” reportedly nets $500,000 every six months between tournament wins, sponsorships, and advertising sales. E-sports arenas are cropping up across the globe, and some of the top tier players — not just of Fortnite, but of other massively multiplayer online games like “League of Legends” — are expected to out-earn some professional athletes within the next several years.

In other words, rather than investing in kids for athletics, it’s nerdy parents investing in things they hope their kids will one day turn into a lucrative career, and given our culture’s obsession with gaming, entertainment, and technology, they just might be on to something.

A Perfect Example How the Media Lies to Push a Left-Wing Agenda

Venture capitalist and novelist J.D. Vance has the perfect example of how the biased media lies to push their left-wing agenda. Vance, who wrote the popular book Hillbilly Elegy, reports that he decided to quit the board of directors of Kentucky green energy company AppHarvest. But after he resigned, the left-wing media began pushing the fake news tale that he left the board under a cloud because Bloomberg caused the company to force him out. This claim that he was forced out is a provable lie. But despite the truth, outlets including the Cincinnati Enquirer, The Lexington Herald Leader, The New York Post, Bloomberg and the Associated Press and more all pushed the lie as if it was incontrovertible fact. Bloomberg claimed that Vance was forced out because he posted “controversial tweets” which had prompted the Bloomberg to ask AppHarvest to account for Vance’s tweets. But this is false. Vance did post tweets that leftists would find “controversial,” but they were posted after he left the company. Vance finally went to Twitter to describe how the left-wing media lied about the situation. “Alright, here’s a story about how the media often shapes narratives instead of reporting the truth, and how a small untruth can morph into a lie that’s repeated again and again throughout the media bubble,” Vance wrote Friday on Twitter.
