My mom went on vacation to Universal Studios to see the Wizarding World of Harry Potter.

No, she did not take the grandkids.  She’s there with friends.

She has been texting us about the number of people there who show up in robes doing Harry Potter cosplay.

Wizard cosplay at Universal Studios is, apparently, a huge thing.

If you haven’t figured it out by now, I hate the politics of Harry Potter.  The books are entertaining and well written, but God damn, is it an awful universe.

It is a world in which your status is entirely the result of genetic determinism.  You are a wizard or you are not, and you are a great wizard or not, as a result of your birth.  Effort has only a marginal effect on your abilities.  Non wizards are untermensch, looked down upon by the wizard world, who refer to them constantly by way of a slur.

The only disagreement in the wizarding world as what to do with non-wizards is between the wizards who advocate for apartheid vs. those who advocate for wizard domination of non-wizards.  Peaceful, mutually beneficial trade is never considered.  Even when wizards take and modify non-wizard technology, e.g., trains, cars, plumbing, etc.

Even Hermione’s non-wizarding parents were never shown Hogwarts or Diagon Alley.  Imagine not being able to see where your daughter goes to school for most of the year because you are a [slur].

Pretty much all wizards are tantamount to Nazis.  The “good wizards” are just the Nazis who want to see the muggles put in ghettos and the “bad wizards” want to see muggles put in work camps.

It’s perhaps for this reason, that the Progressive Left has glommed onto Harry Potter so much.  They love a story where they can be both the good guys AND the superior ubermensch, secure in their place of rightful power because they went to a special, super exclusive school.

I also find Harry Potter cosplayers to be fucking insufferable.

But I digress…

I know that I will be taking the kids to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter when they are the right age.

I love Universal Studios and there is no way we can go to that and not see Harry Potter.

So…

When in Rome, as they say.  If you go to Harry Potter you go in costume.

I have picked my costume.

The Wichfinder General.

I want to see how many people get it and are offended by it.

  1. And then there’s me and a few others, who before the Fantastic Beasts movies pointed out that if ‘muggle’ items like cameras and cars can be enchanted or at least work in heavy magical presence, so could firearms.

    The purists were not happy when we took the universe and pointed out we could still have working firearms.

  2. I’d probably wear a tshirt with this printed on, then watch progtard Potterheads get triggered and lose their g.d. teeny minds. 😉

    “Thou shalt not suffer a witch to live.”
    Exodus 22:18

    A large crucifix, a fake musket and ax completes the ensemble. LOL

  3. I never read the books or saw the movies. I was wondering what the fuss was. Now I see…
    Thanks for the heads up! I know I’m not going to be going to Universal.

    1. As J.Kb said the books are well written. I kinda enjoyed them but also saw the darker undertones after finishing the 1st book (“Non wizards are untermensch, looked down upon by the wizard world, who refer to them constantly by way of a slur.”)
      The movies are meh, lots of eye candy but weak acting by most of the cast, although as usual there are some exceptions.

      Read the books if you get a chance. It’s a nice bit of escapism, and you’ll also get a peek at the twisted mind of progtards and what they consider a potential Utopia.
      Plus it makes it easier to drive Potterheads crazy when you know the material the idolize. 😉

  4. I much prefer PTerry’s wizards (and wizzard) at Unseen University.
    Plus, loved the little Easter egg Ringo put into his latest MHI novel regarding the same.

  5. If you will all forgive the year old thread necromancy, I feel I should point out that Larry Corriea is still selling his MHI patches…
