Anti-capitalist Apple Fanbois are Hypocritical Arsehats: A Rant

Dear anti-capitalist Apple fanbois1, of which there seem to be quite a few. I'd like to point out that you are, in fact, the prototypical mindless consumer drone-slaves of captalism that you like to rail against.

Lining up for hours to spend your dirty, capitalist-provided dollar on dirty, capitalist-produced toys makes you a hypocritical arsehat2. Sure, you can keep sipping on your free-trade coffee and nibbling on your organic muffin while reading No Logo on your iPad. Just know that your beautiful device was made by the same downtrodden Chinese orphan-slaves that make 90% of the rest of consumer electronics. And that you've fallen hook, line and sinker for the most profitable capitalist branding campaign in history.

Without capitalism you would have neither Apple, nor the wealth and free time to use their products. So either quit your whining or quit your fanboism: you can't have it both ways.

1. While anti-capitalist and fanboi traits are individually somewhat annoying, when combined in the one person they produce true arsehattery 2. Hat-tip to Stilgherrian for bringing "arsehat" into my vocabulary.
