They ALWAYS get it wrong

See, this is why you should never talk to the media. First, they always get it wrong. Second, if they really want to get a quote from you, they'll just stalk social media.
The full character of the burgeoning politics of platforms remains to be seen. But right-wing movements have found early traction and see opportunity. Even as farce, Kjellberg’s performance has been illustrative, and a small number of eager observers say they hope that, as backlash mounts, it will be galvanizing. “If Pewdiepie wasn’t #AltRight before,” Vox Day, a former video-game designer and an alt-right leader posted on Gab.ai, a private, Twitterlike service popular with the movement, “he is now.”
I note, with some amusement, that I a) have been promoted to "alt-right leader" and b) just delivered a finished computer game that I designed and executive produced last week. This was the first DevGame course team to go pro, by the way, so congratulations, Team Elveteka.

While we're on the subject, here is a character image from one of our several computer games currently in development, Divine Right, that the artist just sent me this morning. Yes, wargamers, THAT Divine Right.

I think someone should point to "Pewdiepie" that the chaps who wrote the hit-piece on the WSJ and pretty much everybody else mercilessly pounding on him from the media belong to (((the tribe))).

If you look at the tags on that kike produced piece "Pewdiepie" is related to the Alt-Right, and so is Sargon of Akkad.

What a coincidence! LOL

When I used to deal with the press, this is what happened every time. They would come calling, we'd set them straight. Then, they would take what we said over to the Democrats, who would spin them on it. We never at any time got the last word on anything. Everything is filtered through the SJWs.

And this is what the HONEST reporters did to us, and there are far more weasels than honest ones.

Vox: "I note, with some amusement, that I a) have been promoted to "alt-right leader""

It's all in the specified article: "an", not "the". Hard to argue with that, given all your activities in that particular sphere.

But there is one missing element in that description: the adjective "de facto".

Vox has been promoted to leader as often as Abū Bakr al-Baghdadi has been seriously killed or wounded in an air strike.

Heard some libtards talking about it. They were all excited because Trump apparently didn't get the Electoral College vote number correct, and they still are all happy over Flynn. The rest of it went over their heads. Presser is on YouTube, Drudge has links right now.

Speaking of #DayWithoutImmigrants, y'all remember the San Berdo shooting in December '15, right? The one where husband-and-wife Jihadi team Syed Rizwan Farook and Tashfeen Malik left 14 dead?

Well, Enrique Marquez Jr. just pled guilty to supplying our romantic pair the guns they used, as well as plotting (but never going through with) other attacks with Farook.

Marquez's lawyer, Young Kim, didn't return calls from reporters asking for details on the plea bargain.

Zuckerberg is a Babelist.


History is the story of how we’ve learned to come together in ever greater numbers — from tribes to cities to nations. At each step, we built social infrastructure like communities, media and governments to empower us to achieve things we couldn’t on our own.

He lives in a binary world: there are "progressive movements" and there is "an extremely visible and openly racist reactionary movement." Simple. Now all he needs is an example to prove it, and today you're it. Thinking is so easy when you're a leftist.

Unfortunately, he also thinks ressentiment is a synonym for resentment. In other words, he's well out of his league.

And Vox can become the leader of the Alt-right again next week. Much like Orwell's Minitrue in 1984, the story always changes to fit the needs of the moment. Former game designer, current leader of the Alt-Right, next month will become former musician, leader in exile of the Alt-right....

The organizations engaged in mass surveillance have played their cards close to the chest. The public is so nonchalant about having their every move, every transaction, every contact recorded. That's a quite a weapon in a culture where someone under 90 years old can be a suspected nazi.

I see mass media slander in the same light as massed armies in the 21st century. In a society where the unifying ethic is a multicultural glow of goodwill, we are aliens to each-other. Manipulation of reputation can be custom built to the employers, customers, associates and neighbors.
