In which tonight's events are contemplated


Aaron sent over this cheerful meme of the Supreme Dark Lord at his ease. I just wish he'd sent it sooner, so I could have sent it in as my picture for the Awards ceremony. C'est la vie. I'm feeling more than a little optimistic today, although about what exactly I can't say. Perhaps it is because I finished the final draft of SJWS ALWAYS LIE: Taking Down the Thought Police last night and will be able to deliver it on August 27th, the first anniversary of #GamerGate, as planned. Or perhaps because Art of Sword is coming along nicely, as we've finally got some of the powerups in and working. Or perhaps because we've got our gargantuan new project server coming on line this weekend.

I'm looking forward to tonight no matter what happens. Several media outlets have asked me for my take on the situation after the awards are announced, as there is considerably more interest in the outcome than usual, but the fact of the matter is that we achieved our objectives back in April. The Rabid Puppies outperformed my expectations, and if they do so again tonight, it won't be for the first time. Regardless, we have broken the perceived power of the SJWs in science fiction once and for all; they are not frantically debating the best way to mitigate our growing influence in science fiction because they believe they are still in control of it.

I had to laugh when I read that some of the people at the business meeting wanted to postpone the vote on EPH until after the awards were announced because they wanted to see what the results were before taking a position on it. This indicates that they still have no idea what motivates us or what we expect to accomplish. They are too solipsistic to understand our goals even when we tell them straight out what they are. So to be clear, WorldCon, be informed that He Who Shall Only Be Named In Fearful Whispers supports E Pluribus Hugo 100 percent. As for the other anti-slate plan, X of Y, I am totally indifferent because it is structurally futile. Contra the purpose of its designers, it provides an even bigger advantage to disciplined slates than the current rules do. It's irrelevant.

As the International Lord of Hate observed concerning EPH: "So it rewards coordination between a group that is willing to focus votes for one item per category. Did Vox write that proposal for them?"

George Martin is already frantically pre-spinning the Narrative, declaring that no awards being given out means the truefen win and the Puppies lose, except of course when it doesn't because he's totally against slates except when a slate nominates something he likes. It's the usual SJW incoherence. But we don't care if I win Best Editor or No Award does, we don't care if Tom Kratman wins best novella or No Award does, the objective was to ensure that none of the usual SJWs did. And in that, we have already succeeded brilliantly. Sure, it would be amusing to see Jim or John or Rolf or Eric win a plastic rocket, but only because that would, somewhat to my surprise, upset the SJWs even more than the demise of the awards.

John C. Wright is one of science fiction's greatest authors, Jim Butcher is one of fantasy's most popular, and I truly did not expect that the SJWs would rather burn the awards to the ground than permit one of them to be recognized for their contributions to the field. But that is certainly an acceptable outcome.

What Martin and the other SJWs are hoping is that by establishing false objectives for us (and then praying that we don't achieve them), we will be demoralized and go away with our tails tucked between our legs, chastened by the disapproval of the empty-handed, but victorious truefen. This is amusing, because it is not us, but them, who are demoralized. Consider the despairing lament of one SJW at io9.

I’m so WEARY of these assholes. This is supposed to be FUN. It isn’t supposed to be a long, bitter war. I hope the Puppies are fucking trounced in disgrace at the Hugo’s. I hope “no award” wins for most of the categories they flooded. As wonderful as that will be it will just make them more bloodthirsty, bigoted and pigheaded. This drama won’t end with the Hugo’s.

No, it won't. They're weary and in despair because they thought they'd already won the cultural war. They didn't realize that we were still mobilizing, that we were gearing up to blow them off the battlefield with weapons and dark forces they didn't know existed. What demoralized us was seeing SJW crap fill the bookstore shelves. What demoralized us was seeing utterly forgettable romance novels in space being declared the best that science fiction had to offer. If that mediocre SJW-infested nonsense was the best that could make it past the publishing gatekeepers, then what was the point of reading it or writing it?

Compared to nearly three decades of that, what is one more year of not winning awards? We never won any before, so what the hell do we care?

Tonight will tell us one very important thing. It will give us the opportunity to see what their true numbers are and reveal the true extent of their fully mobilized strength. Last year, the maximum No Award vote was 1,100. This year it will be more, somewhere between 1,100 and 4,000.

Being SJWs, they doubled-down as per the Second Law, giving us the chance to break them once and for all. But even if we don't, even if we only burn Munich instead of taking Berlin, even if they are successful in "sending a message", what we hear will not be what they wish for us to hear. Because what we will hear is this: Next year, bring more puppies.

Well said. Finally someone from the Right has actually looked at the Left and found the Left is staffed mainly by slugs and various shades of dumb fucks. Decades were spent reading conservatives who mainly wanted to prove how much smarter they were than other conservatives and in the end being worse than useless.

So much has changed, just a few months ago even on the alt-right its intellectuals would have killed for a "Smart Badge" from even the lowliest SJW media figure, now we mock them, soon we will sell them to the muslims for old soviet era weapons for our collections.

I never considered myself a sad puppy or not a sad puppy. But I do know what SF I like and do not like. Never liked Scalzi, never able to get more than 10-12 pages into Martin. Like Wright, Kratman, Ringo, Heinlein. I never paid any attention to the Hugo awards in the past, other than knowing it existed. As it's now a SJW battleground it's hit my radar. For Vox et al: good on you.

I'd just be worried about one thing: is there any way to be sure that the votes are, or will be, counted accurately? I wouldn't for a minute put it past Hugo organizers to skew the results, if they share the Leftists' sensibilities. In political elections, I believe that both parties have overseers of the counting. Unless there's something like that in place here, no one would ever know if any individual counter would turn in a false result, or if the organizers would collude to render a false outcome.

The more they cry and run to their media "supporters", the more recruiting they do for us. They were already fully invested. They have no more fertile ground. We do.

Blogger FALPhil August 22, 2015 8:48 AM  

Ilk, I think it is extremely important that we recognize that the Hugo Awards are the battle and not the war. Because we defined the terms and because we were organized and disciplined, my prediction is that we will win this battle. But, one battle does not win a war. In this vein, we need to be very purposeful and strategic about what happens next.

There have been other efforts to contain the totalitarianism of leftists and social engineers, some successful and most not so. The successful ones all had one thing in common: they had an infrastructure that enabled them to maintain the offensive. Typically, it was organic and scalable. After Hugo, we should not rest on our laurels, but engage the massive IQ of the Ilk to grow and enhance the infrastructure and remain on the offensive.

The other side, even though they are rabbits, will not give up. Historically, they have shown that they will continue to probe for weaknesses and exploit them where possible, changing tactics to take advantage of circumstance. Like the Chinese, they play a long game. We need to remain vigilant, and squash these attempts, preferably before they culminate into an action that requires reaction.

There are other grass-roots groups with similar sympathies. We need to help them where we can. The one biggest lesson I have learned from the Sad Puppies/Rabid Puppies phenomenon is that if we do not directly confront the opposition, we are doomed to suffer its effects.

So, after the party tonight, let's own the next battlefield and have fun at the same time, because, I am hear to tell you, watching rabbits squeal as they scramble for the warren is loads of fun.

As for the Hugo's, my only hope is that John wins something in order to help him out. I have been dropping a little into his tip jar, but I know what kind of worry it is when your income is down.

For tonight's activities, other things require my time. My six year old girl is demanding more time at the range, and many of ilk are requesting more silver to line the skulls. We should have anticipated the demand for skull goblets would be so high, but I didn't want to buy silver at the peak.

The reason cops wear sunglasses is that it causes criminals to do the "oh shit" reaction even when cops are not looking at them. If someone reacts to a cop, turns, and runs the other way its a "furtive" behavior. That's how what the left claims was an innocent man got executed, he reacted and ran away from a cop a block away from a murder scene, while his illegal alien twin cousin who dressed alike established an alibi.

They're weary and in despair because they thought they'd already won the cultural war.

That's the underlying theme, to me. All across the culture, SJWs thought they'd reached a tipping point, so they could stop boiling the frog and start cutting it up and eating it. I don't know what caused it, maybe Obama's election and the in-your-face way he made his appointments, plus the ram-rodding through of ObamaCare and gay marriage (actually, I think that last one was a big factor). Or maybe it was just a lot of little takeovers that accumulated until they looked around and felt unstoppable.

But they reached a point in the last couple years where they started feeling their oats and thinking they could bring the freak show out in the open and slap down anyone who didn't like it. No more spending years on incremental changes to textbooks and regulations, no more two steps forward one step back, no more giving the squares time to get used to one perversion before moving to the next. No, now they think they'll just go straight from gay marriage to enforced gay marriage to men using women's bathrooms because they feel girly to.....?

But they were wrong. They didn't know how many people out there weren't on board, because they've cloistered themselves away from the normals. They don't understand that those middle-Americans who have bent over backwards to be tolerant out of niceness do still have spines and will get extremely pissed off when they realize they're being taken advantage of by people who hate them.

The Social Justice Warriors

I would love to make a cartoon about this.

The main characters would be three bumbling fools: Scalzi, Robinette, and Hines. I mean, really people, this thing writes itself. Scalzi is the leader of the group. At home, he's infatuated with his five acres, but afraid of his own daughter because of how strong she is. We tease the audience a little bit with the idea of a potential love interest between him and Robinette, but then we confuse them by showing Scalzi prancing around in a dress from time to time.

Hines is just this creepy character. He always has a sick disturbing smile plastered on his face, and he leers at women as he touches them and tells them his newest most scary made-up rape statistics.

Together, the three of them have the power of words. Words like: Racist, Sexist, Homophobe. Dipshit. They point, and they accuse, and they use the power of their words to make this world a much more diverse place. In fact, we know they're winning as the neighborhoods in the cartoon get shittier and shittier.

Occasionally, we'll have cameos of people like N. Queen Jemisin and the Toad of Tor, a disgusting woman who is rubbed down daily by her devouted followers.

The villain is Vox Day, the man who sits on a throne of skulls. He has an army of Vile Faceless Minions, and is known as the man who got hit with all four of the power words (Rapist! Sexist! Homophobe! Dipshit!) and lived to not only tell the tale, but to grow stronger.

On Next Week's Episode:

Scalzi: "Oh no, Vox Day is trying to steal the Diversity Awards!"

Robinette: "He'll never get away with this."

Hines: "Nine out of every ten rapes don't even know they were raped. Yet."

One side is whining, pointing-and-shrieking, enlisting journos to falsely portray the conflict. The other side is inventing character hierarchies, making world maps, making imaginary armies and world divisions, talking about taking skulls of enemies, making thrones of skulls. All that tells you which group of SF/F folks are winning the real world battle.

I had the same thought. Also, this week, there was a story about a pack of wolves being spotted in California, the first wild wolves seen in the state in 91 years. I thought it was... fortuitous.

Of course on the one hand, wild wolves reappearing in California is evidence of the state's decline and the waning of civilization, but on the other hand, humans really are like the Kafer in 2300AD.

The pic is great. The skulls are suitably misshapen. I'd like to see the blood smoking and Geri and Freki crunching rabbits at your feet but what does a VFM know? I'm sure when an SJW looks at it they're seeing fangs and red eyes behind the shades.

All those skulls, doesn't make for one week in the life of planned parenthood supporters. The catch up is a big ask

Fetal skulls are smaller and the sutures have not fused together yet so they would be a poor building material.

After all this, the Warren STILL does not understand "Xanatos Gambit"?

They are so attuned to speaking in lies, they cannot recognize those speaking plain truth. As the Supreme Dark Lord has said, this battle was won in April. All that is happening now is the consolidation and partitioning of the former battlefield and contended lands in preparation for the Spring Campaigns.

So much amusement for a mere $40. The Dark Lord is kind and generous beyond measure to the Ilk and to his lowly minions.

One battle does not win a war. We need to be purposeful and strategic about what happens next. There have been other efforts to contain the totalitarianism of leftists and social engineers, some successful and most not so. The successful ones all had one thing in common: They had an infrastructure that enabled them to maintain the offensive. Typically, it was organic and scalable. After Hugo, we should not rest on our laurels, but engage the massive IQ of the Ilk to grow and enhance the infrastructure and remain on the offensive.

Very insightful. To the Dark Lord, the Ilk, and the Dread Ilk all: The growing numbers of Vile Faceless Minions await their orders, to which all will be obedient when called.

(After all, it's fun to be a stormtrooper chasing SJW rabbits. They so deserve to be destroyed. And eaten.)

188 @89 Not Stormtroopers. They are bumbling, stumbling fools that the freakin' Jedi can curbstomp. No, Einherjar, a steadily growing army born and bred to battle trolls, frost giants, and SJW's. Why SJWs because each and every one of them dies a straw death or with a sword in their back running from battle. And those dead will be released from Hel to walk the earth as sad and sorry revenants.

You don't shoot rabbits with a 'blaster' you spit them on lances, hunt them with slavering white hounds the Cŵn Annwn. Shoot them with arrows or sling stones or even a thrown rock. Blasters? Those are clumsy weapons for the 'D' student VFM.

Afterwards we will feast on the flesh of the wild boar while we quaff mead and sing, sword dance, and wrestle (not in the homoy Greek way either but like manly men striving to break our opponent's back with nothing but the strength of our bodies).

Then we sleep with the women chosen by Freya and get up to do it the next day!

Awesome.

Yesterday, I had two (3) questions for the general men. I retracted as I grew more upset with each sentence; Is it wrong to wish to or take a slight delight in dancing upon the skulls of the wicked, those whom did me harm?

Is it ok to think some people are total trash void of a soul and personhood due to very upsetting exposure/outcome with them? The 3rd is left out, too upsetting at the moment.

LP999/S.I.G. @92 No it is entirely human to wish those things upon our enemies. However, in seriousness as a Christian I'm not supposed to enjoy it. Sure, slay your enemies, the Church has recognized self defense or even a just war for centuries. I just think you're not supposed to take joy in it unless God has ordained it and he hasn't done a lot of that since he sent His son.

And I am sure Heaven is better than Vallhalla but there are warrior angels so they must hang somewhere and as there are many rooms in his mansion. Maybe there's a Christian version somewhere.

LP999/S.I.G. @92 As an addendum I would like to add that no. All men are made in the image of God and that includes a soul. If you are really truly feeling these feelings, don't indulge them. Nothing twists a person body and soul as much as hate.

I spent thirty years unable (not unwilling purely unable to forgive someone). I knew that I had cut myself off from Heaven every time I said the lords prayer, "Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us". I couldn't then one day I got on my knees and begged Christ to break the stone of my heart and he did.

Don't be like me. Don't let your heart grow to stone. Don't let it eat at you. If you need help in forgiving ask God and he will answer. My anger and hate cast a shadow over thirty years of my life. Don't do that. I will pray for you.

Longing For Christ

I adjure you, O daughters of Jerusalem, if you find my beloved, that you tell him I am sick with love. Song of Solomon 5:8

Such is the language of the believer panting after present fellowship with Jesus-he is sick for his Lord. Gracious souls are never perfectly at ease except when they are in close communion with Christ; for when they are away from Him, they lose their peace. The nearer to Him, the nearer to the perfect calm of heaven; the nearer to Him, the fuller the heart is, not only of peace, but of life and vigor and joy, for these all depend on constant fellowship with Jesus. What the sun is to the day, what the moon is to the night, what the dew is to the flower, such is Jesus Christ to us. What bread is to the hungry, clothing to the naked, the shadow of a great rock to the traveler in a sun-scorched land, such is Jesus Christ to us. And therefore if we are not consciously one with Him, we should not be surprised if our spirit cries in the words of the Song, "I adjure you, O daughters of Jerusalem, if you find my beloved, that you tell him I am sick with love."

This earnest longing after Jesus has a blessing attending it: "Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness";1 and therefore, supremely blessed are those who thirst for the Righteous One. Blessed is that hunger, since it comes from God: If I do not experience the blessedness of being filled, I will come again in my emptiness and eagerness until I am filled with Christ. If I do not yet feed on Jesus, I will continue to hunger and thirst after Him. There is a hallowedness about that hunger, since it sparkles among the beatitudes of our Lord. But the blessing involves a promise. These hungry ones "shall be satisfied" with what they desire. If in this way Christ causes us to long after Him, He will certainly satisfy those longings; and when He does come to us, as come He will, how sweet it will be!

"Some other highlights were Robert Silverberg’s “blessing of the Hugos” — a reminiscence of the “tension, apprehension and dissension” that plagued the 1968 Worldcon, including intermittent clouds of tear gas drifting up from downtown Berkeley, and to dispel similar tensions in 2015 he ended by taking out a tambourine and performing the Hare Krishna chant sung by street-roaming initiates back then.

"Later, Connie Willis took a turn on stage, talking about her experience being bitten by a bat, and a mild concern about possible vampirism."



I found this via google, about Silverberg 'blessing' this monstrosity. Did this happen? The two paragraphs obviously resonate, a fact of which the post author is utterly and blissfully unaware. They say that zombies don't know that... well moving on.

These privileged losers, ticks bloated and clinging, these UMC GuiltWhites, desperately need to believe they're re-fighting the Great Struggle of 1968, the Struggle that we see constantly waged in our colleges, government offices, workplaces, churches, homes, minds and spirits. More Equality and Civil Rights! as long as I'm fat and the road isn't bumpy. WorldConners need to dress up and peacock and pretend they do heroic things, because they can't even properly imagine heroic things. As their works demonstrate.

WorldCon is aptly named. I guess WorldScam was taken.

If Robert Silverberg actually said and did those things then I pray that God dispose of his works from eternity, and make his name un-mentioned for, eh, let's say the same period. Have a nice dance there Kali.

I've been more of a spectator these past couple months. But as the cultural wars heat up with these SJWs burning down everything around them, I would like to take this moment to pledge allegiance to Vox Day, the Supreme Dark Lord as he leads the evil legion of evil to victory.

As we mobilize for war, I humbly suggest we use the following song by FGFC820 as our the military battle hymn.
