When rabbits rabbit

I'm not sure which is more amusing, this guy's complete failure to even begin to grasp what neo-fascism is, the fact that the SJWs are pretending to take his ranting babble seriously, his claim that "If You Gave a Dinosaur a Cookie, My Love" is better than anything on the 2015 shortlist, or the severeness of the butthurt radiating from his crimson posterior:
Fuck you, Theodore Beale.

Fuck you for trying to break a thing I loved. Fuck you for doing it to serve your stupid, lame fascist ideology. More to the point, fuck you for your stupid, lame fascist ideology. Your beliefs are horrible. You’re horrible. You’re a nasty, cruel little bully, and I do not like you.

Fuck you for making me feel that way. Fuck you for the way you’ve brought this thing that I love, this celebration of great science fiction, to a point where it is full of the sort of mean and hateful desires that seem to animate you. Fuck you for dragging us all down to your sorry level. Fuck you for being so odious that we have to go there.

And fuck you for making me want you to hate me. Fuck you for all of your beliefs that amount to nothing short of hatred for the things I love. For the people I love. For the art and beautiful things that are why I get out of bed in the morning. Fuck you for living your life for the sole purpose of destroying things that I love, and for making me wish that I could destroy something of yours in retaliation. Fuck you for making me write this, in the sincere and passionate hope that it will make you feel even a moment’s unpleasantness.

And fuck you for the very real possibility that a work nominated purely because you used your noxious little voice to rally your loathsome, asshole supporters to support it might win a Hugo Award. Fuck you because it’s actually possible that you will break the Hugos successfully and demonstrate that you’re oh so much stronger than a bunch of fans who were previously just happily attending a convention and voting for stuff they loved in awards. In short, fuck you.
Other than that, how was the play, Mrs. Lincoln? I am afraid that the only thing this extended rabbiting managed to elicit from me was a wry smile. As for my "loathsome asshole supporters", every article like this creates more of them because the true face of the SJW cannot be forgotten once it is revealed. And the lesson, as always, is this: SJWs always lie.

I particularly enjoyed the punchline: "I will not attempt to construct some absolute explanation of Theodore Beale’s beliefs. Instead, I will construct a caricature of them."

You don't say....

These rabbits were always around to some degree, but the advent of Star Trek TNG as the "face" of SF brought more of them out of the closet and greatly aided them in defining SF as the dreary, low brow, and, ultimately, boring leftist message fiction that has dominated the genre for two decades.
In the final analysis, having to return their purloined fan awards to the control of the fans doesn't cause them nearly as much pain as being forced to watch their cherished political emo-scripts masquerading as SF being exposed for the pedestrian crap that they are. But sunlight tends to have that effect on the soulless undead.

See the About page. He claims a PhD in English.

Also, a quote from another of his posts:

"
My ninth birthday came towards the start of fourth grade. It was not a good year for me. My teacher was, to say the least, a poor fit, memorably at one point issuing the seemingly sincere advice that I should “stop being so smart.” It was a period still very much defined by bullying, and by an increasing sense of confusion and mild alarm at the world. It was the year I learned about sex, not, obviously, as a thing I had any interest in, but as a thing that existed in the world. It marked the point at which I started to become consciously aware of my basic discomfort with masculinity, and my dislike of male spaces. I had my heart broken for the first time I remember. I learned that I did not understand the world, and, worse, that it understood me all too well. And the Super Nintendo era began."

Tragic waste of a human life.

So now that the source of malice has been uncovered he is completely justified for acting like a whiny, spoiled, odious, entitled, over-privileged little git and break all the toys because nothing ever has been or ever will be HIS FAULT.

@Stilicho
I think TV in general and - most importantly - buying the merchandise brought in the lazy-minded who then claimed fandom as a whole including the books without actually reading them (too hardz). Look at The Big Bang Theory the ultimate Mary Sue soap opera - hardly ever a book reference to be found amongst all the toys.

Hilariously, the last episode was about how Sheldon and the little jewish character are domineering alphas (they used the word unironically).

If you haven't met a worthwhile Engish teacher though, remember Stephen King used to teach writing and his non-fiction book on horror and "on writing" were bloody good. Dunno about the baseball one. That said, I've had English Teachers that spent classes encouraging people to believe in past lives and tested students (exams) on their psychotic new age beliefs...

It's gotten to the point where they're openly praising "If you were a Dinosaur," as some great work of literature.

Honestly, that story is the only argument we need.

All we have to do is point out that certain bloggers, like the one above, nominated it for an award and actually think it's better than works that are actually stories, stories with characters, stories that are longer than a few hundred words, stories that don't rip-off the style of other stories, and so on.

The praise that they've chosen to heap on that high-school creative writing class abortion (in effect, doubling down on a huge mistake) is honestly the best weapon we have against them.

I've no doubt people have become more sympathetic to, or even joined, the puppy cause just after reading it and learning it was nominated for two of science fiction's most prestigious awards.

From his hit piece:

And

"the useful way to understand fascism, at least for the purposes of Beale, is as an aesthetic - as a particular mix of fetishes and paranoias that always crops up in culture, occasionally seizing some measure of power, essentially always with poor results."

The level of cognitive dissonance, hypocrisy, willful stupidity and factual innaccuracies in those two tiny samples are enough to stun a normal man at first glance.
Truly, until you sort of distance yourself a little from someone that "thinks" this way and begin to see them as some kind of either parrassitic entity, or, more correctly, a person infected by such, it is actually distressing. Because a normal man is bound to try to reason with such a creature, if only to try to help someone who has clearly gone insane and needs help. But experience has shown that trying to reason with these creatures is a trap.

Honestly, one needs to simply burn out the infestation in their mind by exposing it to the brutal and cleansing sunlight of actions based on reality and facts. Nothing less will do.

The Death of the Left

The left is at its best when it’s trying to take power. It unleashes its egocentric creative impulses, it writes poems, plays and songs as its heroes die in doomed battles or pump their fists at protests. And then they win, get rich and fat, the people grow poor and the country becomes a miserable dictatorship. Try putting a 300 pound Che on a t-shirt. Or get inspired by Obama lazily playing golf

They reached the mountaintop, only to find it's a pile of crap. They have to lie, it is all they have left.

Of course it was a rhetorical question but that is indeed the answer.

I had a long talk with my daughter this weekend about conservatism as a way of life not as a political grouping. I explained to her that it involves looking at the past and observing what works and what does not, something liberals cannot to do. It is a harder path to take at first but ultimately more rewarding if you wish to have a satisfying life.

I'm pleased that she is looking to follow her fathers path in life and not so much her mothers, there is a reason mom was asked to part company difficult as it was.

Wait... so Philip Sandifer has a PhD in English?

And his dissertation was on:

This dissertation is an exploration of the phenomena of newness and innovation. It approaches these phenomena not as historical events in a progress narrative of media and technology, but rather as an operative element of certain texts that has clear and describable content and effects. Its specific focus is particular form where these phenomena are on active and central display the demo. The demo is defined as a text that exists primarily to show the potential and form of a given medial paradigm. This includes things that are explicitly marked as demos, usually for promotional or marketing purposes, but also early texts in a particular medial form that exist to show what the form can do. The project is divided into five chapters, which in turn form two general portions of the piece. The first two chapters construct a general theory of demos and of the act of demonstration, first looking at the problem of innovation and progress, then constructing a specific theory of the demo. The concluding three are a set of case studies of demos, focusing on the infinite canvas webcomic, 3-D film, and the Nintendo Wii.

It really exposes the Gamma mindset, which says, "I'd be cool too if I had a cool name/sword/power." "Vox" sounds like a cool dude who has a band and bangs models; "Theodore" sounds like a nerd whose mommy wipes his nose. So they assume Theodore took on the persona of Vox as a disguise, like Superman putting on the cape -- but they know that if they did that, it would be a facade. They keep reminding him and everyone around him that he's still Theodore, hoping the facade will crack and he'll go running back to his mommy.

They can't really imagine that Theodore grew into Vox or that Vox was inside Theodore all along, because of what that would say about them and their own inability to change.

AmyJ, SJWs reliably learn from last week's war...and then fight it.Having no original ideas, low IQ and a lot of fear doesn't position them well to anticipate next week's war, much less prepare for it.

So, by the time they adopt and attempt (poorly) the "indifference" stance they learned this week, they will be well into the "why has Vox strapped a saddle to my mother?" phase of the war.

Of course, like all "learned" phases of this war, they never even understand the actual lessons, and therefore can't even properly emulate the outmoded phases.

Anonymous brilliance!!! April 22, 2015 9:21 AM  

If we ever gather in person, we should take turns reading this "essay" out loud. Make a game of it, like reading the Eye of Argon.

For example: Can you read the passage below (out loud) without laughing? Don't lie ... go ahead and try it:


-----
The second part is a vision of what should happen, which centers on a heroic figure who speaks the truth of the conspiracy and leads a populist restoration of the old order. The usual root of this figure is (a bad misreading of) Nietzsche’s idea of the ubermensch - a figure of such strength that morality does not really apply to him. He’s at once a fiercely individualistic figure - a man unencumbered by the degenerate culture in which he lives - and a collectivist figure who is to be followed passionately and absolutely. A great leader, as it were. (This is, counterintuitively, something of a libertarian figure. Ayn Rand’s heroes - the great and worthy men who deserve their freedom - are archetypal fascist heroes, because they rise up over the pettiness of their society and become great leaders.) It is not, to be clear, that all cults of personality are fascist, any more than all conspiracy theories are. Rather, it is the combination - the stab-in-the-back conspiracy theory coupled with the great leader that all men must follow - that defines the fascist aesthetic.

All of these tropes are, of course, immediately visible in the Sad/Rabid Puppy narrative of the Hugos. Torgersen’s paean to the olden days of science fiction is straightforwardly the golden age myth. The claim that a leftist cabal of SJWs, the details of which are, as is always the case with these things, fuzzy, but which at the very least clearly includes John Scalzi, Teresa and Patrick Nielsen Hayden, and the publishing house Tor have since taken control of the Hugos is a classic stab-in-the-back myth. And the Puppy slates feature heroic men (Torgersen and Beale) who speak truth to power and call excitedly for the people to rise up and show their freedom by voting in complete lockstep with them. It’s a classically fascist myth, just like Gamergate (gaming used to be great, then the feminist SJWs took over the gaming press, and now Gamergate will liberate it) or Men’s Rights Activists (of which Beale is one).

Vox, as a liberal leaning Atheist I don’t agree with a lot of your viewpoints and opinions but as a human I can separate my politics from the fiction I read and I welcome opposing perspectives. The one thing I do agree with you is your taste in science fiction, reading the short stories you chose and comparing them to last years nonsense is eye opening. I read through this morons article and when I got to the part where he compared “Turncoat” to the Dinosaur drivel put me squarely in your camp. I can’t believe he can be so fucking insane to not realize that his descriptions actually make people like myself want to read stories like “Turncoat”(I went and read it right away) compared to the idiotic sorta poem that was objectively not scifi or fantasy.

I was on the fence about the whole SP thing, mostly because I don’t care. But with every single post against you guys I become more and more convinced that you are right. The amount of hysteric foaming at the mouth nonsense from these guys just because you and your fans voted for scifi you like is astonishing. They truly are unhinged.

DocAlex, our newest Wigan Pier Convert. The more you see of our opponents, the less you want to be considered one of them.

The typical Socialist is not, as tremulous old ladies imagine, a ferocious-looking working man with greasy overalls and a raucous voice. He is either a youthful snob-Bolshevik who in five years' time will quite probably have made a wealthy marriage and been converted to Roman Catholicism; or, still more typically, a prim little man with a white-collar job, usually a secret teetotaller and often with vegetarian
leanings, with a history of Nonconformity behind him, and, above all, with a social position which he has no intention of forfeiting. This
last type is surprisingly common in Socialist parties of every shade; it has perhaps been taken over _en bloc_ from the old Liberal Party. In addition to this there is the horrible--the really
disquieting--prevalence of cranks wherever Socialists are gathered together.

One sometimes gets the impression that the mere words 'Socialism' and 'Communism' draw towards them with magnetic force every fruit-juice drinker, nudist, sandal-wearer, sex-maniac, Quaker, 'Nature Cure' quack, pacifist, and feminist in England. One day this summer I was riding through Letchworth when the bus stopped and two dreadful-looking old men got on to it. They were both about sixty, both very short, pink, and chubby, and both hatless. One of them was
obscenely bald, the other had long grey hair bobbed in the Lloyd George style. They were dressed in pistachio-coloured shirts and khaki shorts into which their huge bottoms were crammed so tightly that you could study every dimple. Their appearance created a mild stir of horror on top of the bus.

I understand why they think Vox's views are conflicting though. If you accept that there is one true historical record, and the ambiguity in it comes from imperfect knowledge of it, then you can accept the idea that there is a truth, and there can be an acceptance of that truth and simultaneous disagreement as to why it is true.

On the other hand, if you believe that truth is relative, that truth is determined by the very act of interpreting it... well, then you hear Vox and you really don't hear anything but gobbledygook.

Aside from the overall look of them- dreadlocks, check, peasant skirts, check, really unkempt facial hair, check, babushka, check, birkenstocks, check- they seemed extremely wan and unhealthy. I walked over, looked at their greasy, finger-smeared foam-core poster of Ukrainian women toiling in the field and finally, with a genuine smile outstretched my hand to the male. When he softly took it I grabbed it hard and did not let go, shaking it to keep up pretense. He seemed to panic and tried to pull it away but I kept on pumping his fish grip and said- "These don't feel like a working man's hands."

He carried that bullet in his chest for the rest of his life.

I always loved the drummer in that video. He ran out fucks a couple of years before, and you just know he has a bottle of bourbon in a paper bag back there. Good bourbon, not that cheap shit. His whole attitude screams "time to lay down another back beat for the faggots."

The praise that they've chosen to heap on that high-school creative writing class abortion (in effect, doubling down on a huge mistake)

Doubling down on a mistake - that's the Gamma in them. They're just not capable of saying "well sure, that was a screw-up, but overall we've been doing a good job with the Hugos..." They have to be right about everything. If they could learn from their mistakes, I doubt they'd be the cancer that they are.

I mean, look at they guy's facial hair. Would he look like that if he was capable of learning from a mistake?

Anyone who claims that the themes of "Turncoat" were pulled from "I, Robot" clearly did not read the latter. It's not even excusable.

Also, his surprise about what wins in webcomic categories is... odd.

I offer a royalty of $20 per shirt!

But I prefer a realistic wolf and rabbit (with realistic blood) and just "Rabbit," please. I suspect the "Wabbit" usage, while funny, would be construed by the SJWs to label the wearer an Elmer Fudd.

On the other hand, a Gamma Rabbit in the jaws of Wiley Coyote would be great but for copyright problems.

Hmm, an interesting thought. Having gotten many people drunk at the bar (and arm-wrestled some really rather surprising critters), I'd say that getting Wright drunk might be a bit more difficult than you expect.

But I would welcome the chance to take a shot at it, with the pre-ordained notion of probable failure firmly in mind. JCW --- the Carlyle bar in NYC, or the St. Regis, maybe, or maybe some snotty hipster place in Brooklyn? (I'm joking, of course: half of Brooklyn isn't really "Brooklyn" any more.) Or maybe the Biltmore hotel bar in Los Angeles, if they still do that jazz concert thingy on the weekends?

Maybe Nate can come along and judge the bourbon. I really don't consider myself a reliable judge of bourbon. I'll defer to his expertise. Also about guns. I know absolutely nothing about guns.

Literature, though...... you mofos better come correct.

despite the peaks of this skirmish being notable, the fact remains that we are a small minority with very diverse goals and abilities.

the question is: does gamergate and Sad Puppies, Rolling Stone, Shirtgate, mattress girl, Dunham Horror represent a planned and expected (thus manageable) stop of the Progressive campaign train? And if so, what do the actions of the progs and our reactions harbour?

if these above-noted victories for our side are critical or inconsequential is something to consider.

Don't remind me I used to collect artwork made of glass. The only things that survived were some guaranteed unbreakable for life vases with gold accents from Italy.

"I sussed out that he's a homo and misses his daddy.Did I miss anything?" ~ He is angry that he cant collect gay alimony

"They even make drywall repair kits now, .... If you can read you can use the kit. " ~ Being able to read is Asian/White privilege.

"Actually, I am a teetotaler, and I always tell the truth, and, unlike yourself,"

He might try to spike your drink to try to take advantage of you.

"Someone compassionate should take him on a remedial tour of "male spaces"." I am quite sure he is familiar with male spaces even more so then Tim's knowledge of bath houses.

He seemed to panic and tried to pull it away but I kept on pumping his fish grip and said- "These don't feel like a working man's hands."

I hope you washed your hands afterwards.

"Your point is taken, but, in fairness.... a six-figure income isn't the only satisfying goal in life. Nicht wahr?"

That's wrong on many levels. First, it's like something I would have written for a creative writing assignment in junior high, not high school. Second, I'd guess it would have gotten a C at that time. Possibly a B if the teacher didn't like southern white males.

> You can tell when they are trying to twist the spoon, they call Vox, Theodore.

One would almost think an English PHD didn't know the etymology of the name, wouldn't one? (http://www.behindthename.com/name/theodore)

John, after seeing those posting here and other places over this, you should know better. I know, I know, you're just being courteous.

Don't know if any of you have ever done any rabbit hunting for real, but if you ever get right up on one of them where your eyes lock, no matter what, they will only hunker down and pretend you are not about to shoot them. You can stamp your foot, reach right down and pet them and they stay put.

It was just a little temptation was all, for sheer devilish fun. I'm not gay myself, but I do have gay friends, and some of them do snicker out loud about their fantasies of seducing straight men. Something similar goes on once in a way, with drunks and friends of Bill. (Oh wait, same thing.)

That's a lot of verbiage just to make the Puppies point. Take this on the Ms. Marvel comic nomination: "On one level, it’s your basic teen superhero concept - a riff on the old Lee/Ditko Spider-Man stories....the entire reason the comic is good is the diversity it introduces."

The worth of a work lies only in how progressive or "diverse" it is. Bonus points for eliminating white men altogether.

I also found this bit from rabid Rabbit Arthur Chu out on the Interwebs: ", I wear black robes. I am a practitioner of the Dark Arts. I rigorously manage my own thinking and purge myself of dangerous "unthinkable" thoughts -- "mindkill" myself -- on a regular basis....You need to understand that the only way to be "rational" in this world is to be irrational..."

And there you have it: to be a Social Justice Warrior, you have to irrationally and continually brainwash yourself, always on the lookout for Badthink even in you're own head. "Mindkill" indeed

It sound exhausting. No wonder they're always so cranky.
