Failing Sun Tzu

Anti-GamerGate clearly doesn't bother with opposition research.

As Milo said, "We need a better class of adversary, you guys."

Speaking of opposition research, I'm wondering if I should apply for this job. After all, I've probably generated more publicity for Tor and its authors than anyone they actually pay to do it.
Post Date 7/20/2015
Title Publicist
Organization Tor Books
Requirements         Tor/Forge Books seeks a highly-motivated and creative Publicist to join its publicity team. The ideal candidate will have three to five years publicity experience, possess excellent writing and organizational skills, be familiar with key print, broadcast and electronic media, and have a successful track record in publicizing a variety of genres. Reporting to Director of Publicity at Tor, this individual will work closely with marketing and sales efforts to implement successful campaigns while developing and strengthening media and author relationships.
If you're an unemployed member of the Dread Ilk, I'd encourage you to apply for jobs like this. Invade the entryists. Just remember to be a minority and talk SJW.

literally created a manifesto of harassment against his ex girlfriend.

Did Milo's ex have a sex change?

Also does Milo have ex?

From what I gather he does pick up a lot of guys but I've never heard of him putting them down again afterwards.

You know what I love about this? The public call to do this seems counterintuitive, at first. "No no, shhhhh, we don't want them to know someone might do this!" But yet, by making a public statement like this, there's a little seed of doubt now in the back of their minds that any potential applicant is really an Ilk or an ally, rather than a genuine SJW.

Brilliant Vox!

while developing and strengthening media and author relationships.

Not so much the job from hell as it is the job in hell.

Okay resume twerking is in order here;

As a dynamically driven Questioning Transgender Native American and rape survivor, I believe this position is well suited for me as I have years of professional experience in managing marketing & sales projects at the Code Pink phone bank.

My background has involved running national promotional product tours for Al Sharpton's Rent-A-Mob and executing new product launch programs from Plugsogood during Folsom Street Fair, frequently demonstrating these fine and surprisingly comfortable products myself.

And finally developing marketing and product sales training for authors who have incredibly dull boring and tedious life stories that no one in his right mind would want to listen. "No being an English lit TA for twenty years is not in fact interesting. Shut up about it and make something up, you are alleged to have an imagination...use it!"


So do I get the job?

Milo loves heterosexual intercourse. He talks of little else.

"Vaginas are fabulous!" - Milo

He is one of those PUAs who is always negging women so they let him do sex to them. Apparently there are a suspicious number of babies in London with terrific hair.

After the way Tor employees slandered Mr Wright one would expect a whole department devoted to strengthen their relationship with Mr Wright.

nero's ex girlfriend? - probably that darn auto-correct again.

Literature major, (poisoned by PoMo but salvageable)
TA, (worked IN the sausage factory, maybe not insane)
twenty years, (irreparable harm done, total zombie)

Asking such a creature to use imagination is like asking a steer to sire offspring. No, that's too charitable. They're simian poo flingers, the lot of them.

something for Minions planning to attend Sasquan:

world famous Burt Rutan lives in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho about 20 miles away.

if we've got anybody local planning to attend, they might want to look at contacting Burt. either a talk on planes/spacecraft or AGW could be on topic.

Just like GRRM thinks he could get a supermodel drunk, women think they well dressed guys can be str8.

Tell them you identify as a flaming sword, & to ignore the guy holding you.

I probably could, and it seems I am reliably less insane than the average Torling. That said, I have no intention of ever visiting NYC, much less living there.

Clearly they're panning for trust fund babies with loser/activist tendencies. I wonder whether this is intentional.

Quite doable if you never sleep in the same spot twice and eat nothing but chicken in a biscuit and valu-rite bean dip.

On the other hand they always called pop, soda. Weird, I can't deal with it. I don't care if they do always open the can and put a straw in it for you...

...that is nice though.

As a public skrewl teacher, I consider myself already pulling a reverse entryist maneuver. I even pull the "diversity" card to get Christian opinions considered in education grad school classes I have to take to get a raise.

I just love the looks of near head exploding pressure build up when I say something like, "You know, when you factor in the cost, college isn't a very good deal for a lot of our students." Oh how the lower lips quiver when the narrative is even gently questioned.

Just frame Ilkian things in terms of "It's for the CHILDREN!" and "Scientific studies actually show..." then people are suddenly torn asunder.

Is "twerking" a resume a typo, rather than "tweaking"? Either way, it's funny. Needs a graphic.
