First They Came for the Girls Scouts, But I Said Nothing…

Posted October 29, 2014 By John C Wright

An article too rich not to share from Big Government (http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2014/10/20/Girl-Scout-Membership-Plummets-Nearly-12-in-Past-Two-Years-And-Now-A-Split): The Girl Scouts USA has just ended its 53rd Convention amid sharply declining membership numbers, serious financial problems, cookie boycotts due to the organization’s known ties to Planned Parenthood, and now, the threat that those who want the group to retain its former, traditional values will […]

The New Inquisition

Posted October 29, 2014 By John C Wright

From Handle’s Haus Haus in December of 2013 was collecting a list of person harassed, fired, bullied or badgered for expressing opinions and making jokes. He is trying to keep the list neutral and evenhanded, but anyone can see where the vast, vast majority of cases are. There is one group that, as a matter […]

Master of the Mystic Arts

Posted October 28, 2014 By John C Wright

Time for Some good news for a change. It looks like there will be a Doctor Strange movie. This is the first comic I ever picked up, and I happened to read it in the 1970’s when the magazine was in the hands of Steve Englehart, Frank Brunner, Marshall Rogers, Jim Starlin, Paul Smith, Sal […]

Breitbart on Gamergate (with Garrulous Digression)

Posted October 25, 2014 By John C Wright

An article by one Noah Dulis at Breitbart’s Big Journalism too startling not to share: Supporters of the GamerGate movement have been working tirelessly to hunt down those who would use their banner to cause personal harm—all while the media continues to claim that GamerGate members are either participating in or indifferent to the harassment […]

Feminism Sinks to a New Low

Posted October 24, 2014 By John C Wright

A comment by Jonah Goldberg, which represents my sentiments so exactly that I have nothing to add: I know that sounds impossible, but I think it just may be true. I won’t embed the video, but you can find it here at Mediaite along with a fuller write-up. Someone thought it’d be really funny/bold/transgressive to dress […]

Saluting Gamergate

Posted October 24, 2014 By John C Wright

An exchange concerning Gamergate seen over at VoxDay’s website, I thought I must share. A comment was posted by one AESchool supporting Antigamergate: The discussion has gone well beyond [Anita Sarkeesian] and her agenda. It’s well out of her hands. But her work is done here…just look around at the media coverage. It’s not very […]

Gamergate and Morlockery

Posted October 23, 2014 By John C Wright

This is not my world; I know nothing of it and have no curiosity about it. But I recognize the spoor and fewmets of the Morlocks, who are the same in the Gamer world as they are in the Science Fiction world, in law, in journalism, and in academia, which are worlds of mine where […]

The Christian Magicians

Posted October 23, 2014 By John C Wright

L. Jagi Lamplighter over at Arhyelon pens a significant and seminal column on the point and the spirit of the Superversive literary movement. The movement is about the magic of the sacred. We Christians are forbidden to monkey with occult things not merely because such things are snares for the unwary, but also because it […]

You Cannot Boycott a Nobody

Posted October 21, 2014 By John C Wright

By definition, one can only boycott a vendor one patronizes, perhaps even patronizes on a regular basis. So, one cannot boycott someone of whom one has never heard, or someone one already avoids as a matter of course. That said, I know nothing of Gamergate, aside from dim echos and third-hand accounts from partisans involved […]
