Bienvenue, #GamerGate

If you support #GamerGate, you are invited to join Milo Yiannopoulos, Mike Cernovich, and me at Le Killy-Jen in the 12ème arrondissement on July 11th at 8 PM for GGinParis. It's an entirely casual affair and any #GamerGaters who can make it are welcome to come and meet up in the flesh. Buy your own drinks, buy Milo a drink, arm-wrestle Mike, or sit on the terrace, light a Gauloise, and argue with me about whether or not games truly represent Richard Wagner's Gesamkunstwerk, regardless, a good time will be had by all.

As far as excitement goes, we're anticipating a little less than GGinDC experienced with the bomb threat, but as you might expect, anti-GGers are greeting this with all the civility and bonhomie that we have learned to expect from SJWs around the world. After I posted the initial graphic, one Vincent M in the Ile de France responded as follows:
Vincent M.@vnz
Misère, je découvre l'existence d'une réunion de gamergateux à Paris, le #GGinParis. Prenons nous a rêver : suicide collectif ? Sivouplait ?

Damn, I discovered the existence of a meeting of GamerGaters in Paris, the #GGinParis. Can we dream of a collective suicide? Please?
Keep that in mind the next time you hear SJWs complaining about how terrible, awful, and very bad GamerGate is. We dream of better games. They dream of collective suicide.

I'll be there with warpaint on. Hopefully after I deliver enough scalps and we do the requisite blood-brother rituals you will be able to accept me as an honourary Red Savage of your tribe.

Will there be any list/group set up to share info on travel/accommodation etc? I'll probably have to stay up all night and leave early next day (which isn't as easy as it used to be) unless someone has a floor I can crash on...

The woman in the photo has man hands. Is she an it, formerly a he? Is this a trap for SJWs - they rail about the image, you deplore their trans-gender hatred? Clever. Very clever.

Somewhat OT: Petition to remove Communist flags from Amazon. There was, of course, no actual pressure to remove the Confederate flag; that was just signaling from the left. This petition may be futile, but enforcing the left's own rules on the left is what we're doing, eh?

Richard Wagner was the author of such "bad to reprehensible" characters as Alberich, and of course is listened to by neo-nazis. Therefore, if video games are Gestamkunstwerk, then Tor Books invented them, and this meetup gives SJWs one hell of a dilemma. #wrongfight

Anyone have any insight regarding why there was no significant opposition to the SJW blitzkreig until they came for games? I mean the SJW must have thought it was a mop up operation after taking over the courts, parliament, corporations, and the media. I guess you can take the bread; just don't touch the circuses!

VD: only marginally OT: Lind's latest column at Traditional Right adds him to the #GamerGate fray, but on the wrong side, I'm afraid: It would not be surprising to find [the Charleston shooter] was addicted to violent video games, as was Breivik in Norway and a number of other shooters. Conservatives should be in the lead in asking whether such games should be banned.

What is the proper response to conservatives seeking to ban vidya because they don't like it?* Being as how conservatives like Lind are generally not narcissistic, sexually-disoriented Millennials who are just trying to manufacture outrage, in what way should our response differ from delenda est SJW?

* I am specifically NOT requesting a ritual denunciation and would be shocked and disappointed to get one.

Disturbing that Lind takes such a view. He also says, "The U.S. government’s top national security goal must be preventing 4GW on our own soil."

It's the policies of the US gov't which, imo, are at the root of why 4GW shall happen here.

Anonymous Giuseppe June 24, 2015 11:24 AM  

El Borak (and others),
I think there is a fundamental difference over a certain IQ level, of which I have just become aware.

I take it as a self-evident absolute truth, that regardless of influence each person that is neurologically typical is 100% responsible for their own actions.

Playing videogames, being brainwashed by a cult, being drunk, etc etc NONE of it is exculpatory of your bad actions.

It seems however that midwits and below, seem to think there should be a fundamental "law" that somehow protects them from the stupidity of others. This is because being non-rational to a very high degree, they fear actual freedom.

To put it another way, if 10,000 people like VD, or even me, who is considerably less consciously strategic, were dumped on an island, there would be no problem. Within a year we would have working desalinators and in a decade we might have achieved the production of glass, steel and rudementary industrilisation. Serious disputes would be resolved by duel and it would be a very efficient system, with few or little laws beyond each man's word being his bond.

Dump 10,000 normal humans on an island and cannibalism is sure to have taken place before the end of year one unless a strong leader emerges to control the masses. Even then, it might just lead to more organised cannibalism than organised civilisation.

Lind may be a master startegist, but seems to still fall in the trap of..."somebody should take care of this" as if anyone other than you should be responsible for what you decide to watch/do/think.

Blogger El Borak June 24, 2015 11:25 AM  

"The U.S. government’s top national security goal must be preventing 4GW on our own soil."

Yes, but he seems at odds with himself on that. In his recent book The Next Conservatism he calls for restoring the republic, which would involve a massive reduction in centralized control (and cost). I would suggest that you cannot simultaneously have a government that is small and unobtrusive while at the same time demand it monitor the mental health and political opinions of everyone in the country to sniff out potential 4-Gen warriors. Perhaps he has some other way in mind to keep 4GW from starting than physically suppressing those with a mind to start it?

Anonymous Krul June 24, 2015 11:25 AM  

El Borak,

In this case, one might ask the conservative to compare the case for banning violent video games to the case for banning guns. Hey, if it saves even one life it's worth it, right?

Blogger El Borak June 24, 2015 11:29 AM  

Giuseppe: seems to still fall in the trap of..."somebody should take care of this"

Agreed. The question is not whether Lind is wrong, but how you treat guys who are intelligent (and he is) and creative (and he is), but who perhaps inadvertently line up beside and in support of the very cultural Marxists he claims are destroying western culture?

Blogger VD June 24, 2015 11:38 AM

Anonymous Donn #0114 June 24, 2015 12:25 PM  

Of course he probably played 'violent' video games. 80 to 90% of all boys in America play the same games. He certainly has psychological problems. If he came to my front door looking like that and did not respond to my gentle hints to leave I would probably set my dogs on him (literally).

As to being on medication? Well just look at him. No doubt.

But the games? Might as well blame internet porn or MSM news or riding the bus. Most kids do all that. We used to be able to lock up dangerously insane folks or involuntarily commit them. Now we can't but we can drug the hell out of them. How's that working?

Blogger Lovekraft June 24, 2015 1:20 PM  

the significance of GG and why it represents such a threat to progressives is that it is not about a spurned lover, bitter gammas and the like.

GG exposes a sustained and deliberate blacklisting of certain viewpoints/ideals, and promoted a certain set of values. This promotion was done in secret by a mass cabal of nothing less than religious minions following the orders of their liberal masters.

When you're smart and know a lot of stuff, it's easy to start thinking you should have a worthwhile opinion about everything. Especially when you have people asking for it on a regular basis.

Probably the most important slap-down I ever got was from my dad, who once broke in when I was expounding upon something, "Good grief, is there anything you don't know?" (I was a bit of a know-it-all in my teens, believe it or not.)

Blogger CarpeOro June 25, 2015 12:20 PM  

Regarding Lind, as with most people there are inconsistencies with his beliefs. If your shocked by that statement you either didn't read "Victoria" or misunderstood it. The statement definitely fits within the context of that book's philosophy. Or perhaps the view of their being inconsistencies is my own interpretation/filter of things. Regardless, the statement reads to me as being consistent with the philosophy of the work and part of the reason I felt unable to rate it as a 5 star work over all. It is still worth the read for the 4GW portions of it so I still recommend it.
