Go go Gamergate!

Posted November 12, 2014 By John C Wright

What can you do?

Friends, if you want the so called Social Justice Warriors and their agenda of defeminized woman and immasculate men and sexual perversion and abomination to fail, and their tactics of gossip and backbiting and anti-White racism and anti-Christian bigotry to fail and fail hard, you are probably wondering what you can do to help.

The answer is that you can do simple and persistent things.

Here is a message from my publisher:

General

  • Support the good. Don’t support the SJWs in any of their flavors.
  • Get on Twitter. Tweet once with #OpSkyNet. Retweet and favorite one #GamerGate tweet per day.
  • Email one Gawker (or other #GamerGate target) advertiser per week.
  • Join Recommend. Write one Game- or Book-related reco, good or bad, per week and I’ll add it to the appropriate list. Be sure to follow me first so I will see it.
  • Try an indy game from a #GamerGate developer.
  • Submit an article to Reaxxion.
  • Speak out. Do a blog post. Tell a friend.
  • Stand by those under attack, especially if you don’t agree with them. The primary SJW tactic is 3rd Generation. They cut off, isolate, then swarm. They can’t do that if you refuse to permit them to separate you from their target.

He says more and the topic, and with more authority than I can muster:

and here

http://voxday.blogspot.com/2014/11/what-you-can-do-part-2.html

And, for those of you interesting in what the media thinks of Gamergate (and I mean that sliver of media which is not owned, body and soul, by the Progressives) , I am pleased to see signs of support:

The reaction in the press has been bewilderment and, then, apoplectic rage, driven at least in part by a media establishment that sees video gamers—the supposed dorks and basement-dwellers of popular imagination—mounting a credible and effective defence against the liars, frauds, neurotics and attention-seekers who have already destroyed morale and wrecked culture in the comic, sci fi and fantasy worlds.

Sadohilarity from Corriea

Posted November 11, 2014 By John C Wright

The International Lord of Hate, Larry Correia, who is actually one of the nicest guys I have ever exchanged letters with, has a post for today which I would like any of my loyal and beloved readers to read.

However TRIGGER WARNING!! Don’t be drinking hot cocoa because you might spit it at your computer monitor if your laughter-for-sarcasm meter is not property aligned. Some men are sadistic. Some men are hilarious. Mr Correia is both at once, a condition of awesomeness that should have its own neologism, like sadohilarious.

Personally, I love when SJWs begin to eat each other.

So this article has been making the rounds, and I’ve repeatedly been asked to comment on it.

http://laurajmixon.com/2014/11/a-report-on-damage-done-by-one-individual-under-several-names/

Apparently a member of the literati SJW army—and super prestigious Campbell nominee for BEST NEW WRITER—has turned out to be a huge internet troll, with a bunch of aliases, attacking and tormenting people. Of course, those of you who read this blog or followed Sad Puppies are like, duh… They attack and torment Larry, and anybody who agrees with him nonstop, but no my friends… Benjanun Sriduangkaew did the unthinkable and used their regular SJW tactics of threats, insults, intimidation, and career sabotage against fellow SJWs, and that is super badthink!

Now, when you threaten, intimidate, troll, and try to sabotage the career of anybody who disagrees with the Social Justice narrative, then that is doubleplus good! Try not to get confused.

…Basically, this “up and coming writer” who was nominated for a prestigious writing award for having one pro sale short story and being a Thai Lesbian (which is totally worth like ten books of actual writing) treated fellow SJWs the way that SJWs treat all of us, and that is the worst thing ever. And now she should be shunned by all the other proper good thinkers for hate speech crimes and unsafe feels. She will now be banned from Wiscon’s Racially Segregated Safe Zones and I’m sure people will threaten not to attend WorldCon because she might call them fat.

A note on being an “up and coming writer”, as far as I know this woman had a handful of short stories, only one of which would have counted as a professional sale, and a blog where she wrote about Social Justice crap, and that was enough to get her nominated for the Campbell Award for Best New Author. It doesn’t look like this nominee for Best New Writer has published much since.

f you really want to see just how stupid people can get, read the comments, where SJWs argue about “privilege”, where a bunch of white, liberal suburbanites excuse attacks on people who disagree with them, because they probably possess some nebulous concept of privilege. Like me for example, I grew up with Portuguese Dairy Farmer Privilege, where all that back breaking manual labor, knee deep in cow shit, at 3:00 in the morning, in order to scrape by in near poverty all those years, somehow turned me white and made it so that it was okay for SJWs to lie about me.

Privilege sounds awesome. You guys should totally get some of it.

Queen Victoria to give women a vote in Science Fiction

Posted November 10, 2014 By John C Wright

Charlie Martin and Sarah Hoyt have an article over at PJ Lifestyles demonstrating the stump-stupid unreality of the claims of the social justice warriors that ruined SFWA.

By all means read the whole thing here: http://pjmedia.com/lifestyle/2014/11/07/the-women-some-women-cant-see/

 

So The Atlantic has discovered women in Science Fiction. To be more precise, The Atlantic has discovered that women are “rising” in science fiction.  Again. Apparently they asked Ann Leckie about women and awards in Science Fiction and Leckie, best known for writing a novel in which people have two genders and pretend to only see the female one, explained:

But both Leckie and Hurley express a combination of optimism and cynicism when it comes to whether or not women in the science fiction world are actually making progress, and how quickly. Leckie points out that this isn’t the first time women have been in the spotlight for writing award winning science fiction. “Sometimes I feel very optimistic about it, I say look at this, there are more women getting awards,” she says. “And then I look back and the ‘70s. The ‘70s was a decade that was crammed with prominent women science fiction writers, and a lot of women made their debut in that decade or really came to prominence.”

This was the time of Ursula K. Le Guin and Vonda McIntyre, who both won joint Nebulas and Hugos. Anne McCaffrey, Kate Wilhelm, Joan Vinge, and Marion Zimmer Bradley were all nominated for Hugo Awards that decade. In 1973, the Alice Bradley Sheldon, who wrote under the pen name James Tiptree, Jr. wrote the famous, feminist short story called “The Women Men Don’t See.” Joanna Russ’s feminist science fiction book The Female Man was published in 1975 and nominated that year for a Nebula.

Then, Leckie says, the ‘80s and ‘90s happened. The rate of women nominated and winning awards dipped down again. And today, once again, society has this idea that women who write science fiction are a strange and interesting breed. In other words, today the community is having the same conversation it had in the ‘70s about women writing science fiction.

This is beyond precious.  First of all, I’d like to inform The Atlantic that the (ever-shrinking) community they’re talking about is the Science Fiction Writers of America, the same organization that went on the war path against two members for using the word “lady” which is apparently derogatory.  Of course, people with such high standards are having the best conversations.  At least, they’re having the best conversations, if the conversations you’re looking for are “excuse me, is the sky made of Swiss or Guyere?”

As for Ms. [sic] Leckie, I believe she is confused about the history of the field.  In fact, women went right on winning awards through the eighties and nineties.

For instance, this is a list of the Nebulas won by women since 1982 to 2011.

Intelligent compliments and intelligent criticism about JUDGE OF AGES from Mr. Oka.

If there are two things Wright writes well, they are long action sequences, and humorous, intelligent dialogue. The Judge of Ages plays both of those strengths to the hilt. The first half of the book is a long action sequence, peppered with humorous, intelligent dialogue. The second half of the books is humorous, intelligent dialogue, peppered with action sequences. The action is fast, relentless, and a bit more graphic than in previous books…

Wright does an excellent job of switching between viewpoints during the melee to give readers the whole picture of the battle, and to keep the action going. The dialogue has room to spare for both mind-bending sci-fi speculations, any of which could be the basis of tale in it’s own right; and hilarious Texan irreverence and gallows humour. Wright’s flair for surprising but logical plot twists is also in full force here, and I lost count of how many times Montrose was outmaneuvered by or out-outmaneuvered his foes. Space opera this intelligently written is a wonderful thing.

And one of his two criticisms, with which I would happen to agree, had I only read as far was what has been published

Minor spoiler warning. Near the end of the book comes a scene of farewells to fond companions as moving as the departure from the Grey Havens in The Lord of the Rings, or rather, it should have been. The scene is too short. If I am reading aright, and we are truly seeing some of these characters for the last time, I needed more time to say goodbye to them. Menelaus needed more time to say goodbye to them. The scene as it stands is finely written, it almost made me cry*, I wanted it to make me cry, but alas, it ended too shortly, and with it, my catharsis.

At least one or two of those characters pop up in a sequel.

Mid Term Election

Posted November 5, 2014 By John C Wright

Some thoughts, in no particular order, prompted by the events of last night’s election:

The Republicans have won a signal victory by an craven tactic of announcing no policy positions and making no promises, but merely by standing by and not being Democrats, as the Democrats announced no policy positions and made no promises but threatened women with an imaginary (and straitjacket-levels of lunacy screaming) Republican war on women, and threatened Blacks with the imaginary Republican racism, as demonstrated by such famous Republicans as Bull Connor, George Wallace, Lester Maddox, Orval Faubus, Nathan Bedford Forrest. The Democrats historically showed their love for Blacks by blocking anti-lynching laws, opposing Emancipation Proclamation, the Thirteenth Amendment, and the Fourteenth Amendment, is claiming that Republican proposals to prevent voter fraud are racist.

So, while the Democrat defeat is well and richly deserved because of the mind-boggling stupidity of their campaign strategy, I have heard no national Republican figure, no, not one, vow to abolish Obamacare, nor even to de-fund it. I have heard GOP leaders already make public statements eagerly promising to compromise and urinate the victory away into the gutter.

I have heard no one vow to abolish the EPA, the DOE, the NEA, the IRS, nor to execute by slow hanging Supreme Court Justices from the eaves of the Capitol dome who have betrayed their oaths to abide by the Constitution.

Antiabortion ballot initiatives passed only in one state but failed in two states. The Republicans did not actively support these measures, or, rather, if they did, I heard nothing of it.

Christian gentlemen, these heathens are not our friends, and they do not believe what we believe, and do not believe in Him in whom we believe.

Gentlemen, this is not the victory, but the beginning of the battle. Gird up your loins, sell your coat, buy a sword.

Viva Vavra!

Posted November 4, 2014 By John C Wright

(hat tip to Vox Day) As an outside observer with no dog in this fight, nonetheless I cheer and salute and honor and magnify the Gamergaters. Confusion to their enemies!

Why? for reasons like this:

Over the last decade, media were taken over by people who think that their ideals, opinions and way of life are superior to others and so they have the mission to tell others how to live, what to think and what to do. Those people have learned that there is a very easy way of manipulating others with guilt and fake goodwill.

http://www.escapistmagazine.com/articles/view/video-games/gamergate-interviews/12400-Daniel-Vavra-GamerGate-Interview

By all means read the whole thing. Mr Vavra was raised under a communist regime, so he recognizes the smell of their leprosy.

What I find continually amazing is the aspect Mr. Vavra touches here: the people who have such a high opinion of their moral and mental superiority. But on what is that  inflated self assessment based? It stands on two legs:

First, they believe that to think is a hate-crime, and so they avoid even the semblance of any rational or orderly cognition in their various word-emissions. They are not just stupid and illogical, they are really, truly, deeply, profoundly stupid, stupid in a way an honest man with a low IQ could never be, because they are arrogant jackanapes mimicking the surface features of smartness which they have seen and do not understand, such as the use of obscure words, pompous self-glorification, dismissive condescension, and all such behavior truly wise people (see, for example, Socrates) never actually employ.

They think thinking is self-deception, adherence to a false consciousness or ‘narrative’ and that defining words is ‘too binary’ and ‘too limiting.’ They prefer to think ‘trans-logically’ and not be limited by the tiresome restrictions of, you know, reality and sense.

So their belief in their smartness comes from the fact that they refuse to think.

Second, they think that to be moral is judgmental, and judgment is thinking, and thinking, as we have seen, is a hate-crime. So they support and applaud at every turn foulness and vulgarity in arts and in speech, they support sexual perversion, drug abuse, and anything else that demeans and degrades the human person, and they become oddly (perhaps even sexually) excited at the thought of the ruthless cruelty of the most vicious and reckless killers in history, Mao, Pol Pot, Stalin, Castro, Che. A brief inspection of the history of the Terror in France after the Revolution there shows the addiction to sadism is widespread among the Left, and it resurfaces again in the Russia of the Bolsheviks and in Red China. The Left unerringly sides with the psychopathic evil against the innocent. I suspect this is why they rejoice at the death of the unborn babies, of old people, of women in comas, and why they are allured and fascinated by the poor souls suffering from freakish sexual neuroses.

So their belief in their moral goodness comes from their unalloyed devotion to evil.

These wretches are the people to whom we have abandoned pulpit of the conscience, and the lectern of the intellect.

The Queen of the Tyrant Lizards

Posted November 4, 2014 By John C Wright

This story will appear for Epiphany in the upcoming anthology from Castalia House, THE BOOK OF FEASTS AND SEASONS.

* * *

There was no time. That is the first thing to remember. I did not know what was about to happen. That is the second thing to remember.

Imagine a time line. Select a zero point. To one side is an infinity of tomorrow, starting with positive one. To the other is an infinity of yesterday, starting with negative one. But between the positive and the negative infinities, what is there? Less than nothing, less than half of nothing, a pinprick, a dot, a point, less time than it takes to decide to murder them all.

One Hundred Reasons to Vote

Posted November 3, 2014 By John C Wright

Here are One Hundred Reasons to vote Republican tomorrow.

Even if you are a staunch Marxist professor at a college, or a loyal devotee of Ayn Randian classical liberalism, no matter how badly the RINO offered by the establishment Republican disagrees with you on ten percent of your policy positions, he does not disagree with you one hundred and ten percent, and while he might harm the nation through corruption, or foolery, he is not actively and energetically hellbent on dismantling and destroying the nation. He does not hate and loathe the Nation, nor does he seek the death of you and yours through war and plague and famine.

The Democrats apparently do, to judge by their actions. If you believe these are honest men who merely have  a different theory of political economics than you, explain their unwavering support for terrorism, for sodomy, for voter fraud, for legalizing recreational drug use, for blocking education reform, and their fanatical, nay, diabolical support for tax-funded prenatal infanticide.

The difference is deeper. It is like the difference between rabbits and wolves, between Pajama Boy and Duck Dynasty, between men and, well, not-quite-men.

wolfrabbitduck

The Democrats support Obama’s vision of a transformed America. Otherwise, they would not so vehemently support Barack Obama’s administration, whose accomplishments include the following.

Reading this list, keep one thing in mind: A President cannot learn from his mistakes if he thinks he makes no mistakes.

I have limited myself repeating this list (the words below are not my own) to a hundred or so. Not mentioned is some additional scandals and betrayals, such as introducing deadly diseases to our shores, the fumbling incompetence of the current campaign against the Islamic State, nor the craven submission to Putin’s invasion of the Ukraine, nor is mentioned the running up the national debt into the 17-19 trillion dollar range, and other things too painful to mention.

  1. Secret Police spying on the Press: http://nypost.com/2014/10/27/ex-cbs-reporter-government-related-entity-bugged-my-computer/
  2. Violated the U.S. Constitution by authorizing assassinations and drone strikes to kill American citizens abroad — without due process.
  3. Obamacare — A massive and incredibly convoluted bill which exponentially increases the federal government’s control over our personal lives…which neither Obama nor a single Democrat even read before passing, designed to bankrupt the nation, not to mention being starkly and clearly unconstitutional.
  4. Promised you could keep your doctor and your policy; later shown to be a knowing, not an unintentional, lie.
  5. Handed out over 1,200 waivers to politically connected donors exempting them from the onerous requirements of Obamacare.
  6. In both the 2008 and 2012 presidential elections, the Obama campaign purposely disabled the credit card verification system for its Web site donations, allowing anyone from any foreign country to donate with no limit and no proof of identity; in both elections it was demonstrated that people overseas and people with obviously false identities were able to donate to Obama campaign, in direct violation of several laws. To this day it is not known what percentage of Obama’s campaign funds are illegally obtained, since there is no documentation.
  7. Billions of taxpayer dollars gambled on “green” companies like Solyndra, NextEra, Ener1, Solar Trust and many others — all of which went bankrupt.
  8. An intentional refusal to enforce federal immigration laws; an abridgement of Federalism by harassing the state of Arizona into not defending its southern border.
  9. Unemployment at or above 15% actual unemployment throughout both terms.
  10. Operation Fast & Furious — a government-sponsored illegal gun-running scheme designed to purposely go awry so as to induce public outcry for gun control.
  11. Increased the percentage of Americans dependent on food stamps to unprecedented levels (now over 15% of the nation’s population).
  12. Militarily intervened in Libya in 2011 without the Congressional approval required by the War Powers Act — technically an impeachable offense.
  13. Ordered NASA to make one of its top priorities not space exploration or scientific research but “Muslim outreach.”
  14. Used Obamacare as a pretext to greatly increase the size and power of the IRS (which was given 16,000 new agents and additional mandates to penalize taxpayers for noncompliance).
  15. Used the IRS to harass conservative businesses.
  16. Greatly expanding the number of unaccountable “czars,” which essentially amounts to unilaterally adding new federal departments with no congressional oversight — leading to a true “bureaucracy” in the original sense (rule by unelected bureaucrats).
  17. Using taxpayer dollars to bail out the private pension funds of autoworkers’ unions at GM & Chrysler.
  18. Illegally ending the welfare-to-work requirements passed by Congress.
  19. Doling out $800 billion in stimulus cash for “shovel-ready” jobs that didn’t exist — the money just evaporated with no measurable economic benefit.
  20. Alienating and isolating Israel, our strongest ally in the Middle East.
  21. Apologizing to Islamists and terrorists for offending them.
  22. After Nidal Malik Hasan massacred 13 people at Fort Hood while shouting “Allahu Akbar” so as to become a martyr for Islam, the Obama administration refused to classify his action as “terrorism” and instead deemed it merely “workplace violence.”
  23. Under Obama’s watch, for the first time in history America’s credit rating was downgraded, due to his poor economic policies.
  24. Stopped American oil drilling in the Gulf of Mexico, allowing other nations with worse environmental records to drill instead — thereby managing to both weaken our economy and damage the environment simultaneously.
  25. Set up “Attack Watch” a Web site on which you would report “attacks” on Obama’s proposals and ideology; it was quickly shut down due to outrage and mockery. Read the remainder of this entry »

How Did We Come to This?

Posted November 1, 2014 By John C Wright

For those of you still wondering why I quit SFWA and why I made as big a public stink about it as I could, please read the following guest post by Fail Burton:

There’s a scene in the film Soylent Green where Edgar G. Robinson looks at a piece of raw steak and some vegetables and says something like “How did we come to this?”, and he starts crying.

Here’s how I see this: anyone who came up the old way reading Heinlein, Asimov, Forry Ackerman, Stan Lee, Ray Bradbury knows the culture, messaging and atmosphere was the complete opposite of a thing like the KKK. There is absolutely no doubt of that.

There was NO INSTITUTIONAL HARASSMENT AT ANY TIME of non-whites, gays or women embedded in those stories, embedded in the messaging. Quite the opposite.
