They've learned nothing

They are still lying about GamerGate, Trump supporters, and the Alt-Right.
The use of humor, irony and the destabilization of the truth is important. For years, my friends and I dismissed assholes in video game chat rooms spouting hateful rhetoric as performance artists and comedians. They didn’t mean anything by it, we told ourselves, they were just trying to get a laugh or a reaction.

“It is an extremist movement built on destabilizing meanings, making people distrust their senses and doubt reality, and deny responsibility by pretending to be joking or just playing,” Cross said. “Gaming culture, which has long shielded its native abuses by cleaving to the idea that it’s all ‘just a game’ was an ideal seedbed for this classic fascist two-step.”

It’s a tactic we’ve seen Trump employ repeatedly both on the campaign trail and in his presidency. Aside from the violence, the nasty rhetoric and the death threats, this destruction of objective truth is the biggest threat Gamergate and the alt-right represent — they make us doubt our senses and our sensibilities.

Which is why we have to fight. I love video games and, for years, I’ve muted or ignored the vile communities festering there. Most of the people, and I believe most of the men, playing video games aren’t racist, sexist or mean. But for too long, gamers have allowed the worst of us to represent the entire community. For too long, we’ve muted the racists instead of challenging their ideas. For too long, we turned the other way when someone creeped on women on the Counter-Strike server.

We can’t afford to do that anymore. We had the opportunity to shut these bastards down for decades and we didn’t and now they’ve spread from the chat rooms, message boards and online shooters into the real world. They’ve shut down public speeches, tortured journalists and run politicians out of public life.

Fans of video games watched the birth of a new fascist movement and we didn’t even realize it. Now, with the benefit of hindsight, we have to do our part to stop it. When you’re playing a game and someone’s acting like an ass, let them know. If someone threatens to gas the Jews or rape a female player, report them. If you’re brave enough, engage with them and try to dismantle their ideas.

If we don’t fight them online, and now, we may have to fight them in the streets.
It's amusing that they are still pretending, nearly two years later, that they haven't been fighting us online and in the media as viciously as they know how. It's a little less amusing, though not at all surprising, that they are not honest about the way we are simply using their tactics against them.

Regardless, we know them. They do not know us. They simply refuse to acknowledge the truth about either us or themselves, which only works to our advantage.

If you know others and know yourself, you will not be imperiled in a hundred battles; if you do not know others but know yourself, you win one and lose one; if you do not know others and do not know yourself, you will be imperiled in every single battle.
- Sun Tzu

To paraphrase something I wrote around the time I published SJWAL, both their history and their rhetoric is incoherent. They have to cling to the idea that their enemy is stupid - to do otherwise would risk harming their fragile self-esteem - but somehow this "abysmally stupid" opponent is a dangerous risk. This can only be explained by attributing the danger to evil that goes well beyond the pedestrian variety, and reaches the level of disturbing malignity.

So, they choose to believe in a very stupid, very malignant enemy rather than an intelligent and legitimate opposition. Needless to say, this violates the first principle mentioned above, which is to know your enemy. And they can't afford to be sufficiently honest with themselves to do that.

Or could just be that they are setting the narrative preparing the terrain for the time in which anyone somewhere that happens to be a video game player says something they do not approve and boom they have all they have been saying all these years confirmed.

"Aside from the violence, the nasty rhetoric and the death threats..."

What violence? They always throw "violence" in there, even though there has been literally zero actual violence in the entire GG flamewar.

Basically he's trying to gaslight his readers into believing GG somehow involves violence, and then projecting the gaslighting tactic onto GG itself:

"... they make us doubt our senses and our sensibilities."

Or maybe the reason you feel doubts about your own beliefs is because, deep down, you know they're bullshit. Don't shoot the messenger, sweetheart.

Plus, today's modern social justice warrior has the left-wing media, entertainment industry, church, and others backing his play at all times.

Racism is a good thing. Throughout history every successful group of people were unabashed racists. It is how groups stay together as distinct groups over long periods of time. In the 1960's, whites were the first group of people to stop being racist, and it might make us the first people to ever completely be wiped off the face of the earth. We must change direction and become just as racist as every other group of humans on the planet. Our survival depends on it.

Less the online shooter bit, project much? These are the characters constantly working to undermine the language and can't tell a man from a woman.

There will never be a point where they become satiated, even were we to allow them to completely destroy society. A void can never truly be filled with a negative so they will never remain satisfied. Like hard drug users they always require more and while they destroy life around them try to achieve the previous high, they are also eaten alive by there dark desires in a cycle that only ends with their own end. It is time for the normal people to stand up and refuse to have their lives destroyed by the addicted SJWs.

No. It MUST be race. There is ONLY race. Race = genetics = family = tribe = nation. There is NO OTHER permanent basis. EITHER your family dies, or it bands together with less-closely related *family* members (see: Steve Sailor's definition of race) and wins/lives.

There is no "proposition" "nation" on the planet, nor has any ever survived. What has been wrongly described as a proposition nation (our White, Euro-derived -- indeed, England-derived) is being destroyed by that very description and its inclusions!

Go read the 16 Points of the Alt Right again, pay close attention to Point number 14.

I write off this kind of hyperbolic juvenile screed as a poor and unschooled reaction to a world too big for the writer to understand and their need to feel heroic amidst their disorientation. It's very similar to Vox Day's rhetoric, which is only slightly less comic.

"We must fight"? What? Does he think he's must rally people to level up in a Call of Duty session? It's a complete waste of time. Asking gamers to fight the the Alt Right is a bit like the Alt Right working to rally young men to oppose the world as it is, though with a bit more flair and bile.

Both choose to completely disassociate themselves with their local communities, but cause they likely don't have the interpersonal skills. Both the Alt Right and these hyperbolic anti-GGs have zero interest in policy, in improving people's live, in understanding anything that can move the ball forward.

Instead, they pretend they are living in a Game of Thrones episode.

We've seen the next step is, in preferential order:

C - street violence

Their rapid movement to C in the united states is actually a good sign. You guys in Europe and Canada are f-ed because they shoved this onto the law books.

In the absence of RAPID reform in those nations, the results of these policies will eventually be high profile cases of persecution (and likely requests for US political assylum), causing a fracture in international relations and pushing the US toward an alliance with the Russians against an increasingly authoritarian/islamized EU.

It was just an annoyance until the majority-leftist jerks decided to use certain "offensive" language by other jerks as an excuse to crack down on all speech they didn't like.

This is what makes the Alt Right so inconsequential. You think wealth inequality has something to do with race. Good god. Income inequality is a direct result of a 180 degree turn in tax policy being directed in the interests of the very rich, the long term war against unions, the deregulation of the banking industry, the sell off in America's manufacturing infrastructure and novel policy developed over the past 50 years in which public companies have turned way from any concern with workers, community and country toward a laser like concern with shareholder concerns.

No one concerned with these issues even thinks about equivilency of outcome among races.

What the F is wrong with you and the Alt Right? Have you completely lost the ability to move the prism of race off to the side for even a moment? As long as RACE is the only prism you are capable of filtering the world through, you'll never ever be allowed a place at even the smallest table.

Their actions are so openly counterproductive to whatever "cause" they are advocating that even apolitical people that I know are openly commenting on it, yet they seem completely oblivious.

But it is dangerous as well, since they are rapidly becoming animals forced into a corner as their entire dysfunctional intellectual, moral and fiscal universe approaches bankruptcy and there are no more bailouts.

Don't be an idiot. Income and wealth inequality existed at every point in history. However, since the mid 1970s and in conjunction with lowering taxes on upper incomes, income gains in the U.S. were no longer being shared among the different income and wealth levels. Since the 1980s, income gains have gone significantly to the top income percentiles. They used to be shared.

for years, I’ve muted or ignored the vile communities festering there.

This is why you do not know or understand the other side.

Most of the people, and I believe most of the men, playing video games aren’t racist, sexist or mean.

I laughed out loud. Apparently, fascism arises when somebody is 'mean'.

They’ve shut down public speeches, tortured journalists and run politicians out of public life.

I say the true fascists are the ones in black face-masks shutting down public speeches.

we have to do our part to stop it... If someone threatens to gas the Jews or rape a female player, report them. If you’re brave enough, engage with them and try to dismantle their ideas.

The SJW's bar for 'bravery' is to anonymously report somebody online - the lower bar.
Then the higher bar for SJW 'bravery' is to engage in anonymous back-and-forth in an online forum.

I was watching a short doco on WWII Sherman tanks just earlier:

We had short-barrelled guns, designed to shoot high-explosive shells at a fairly low speed, 2000 feet/second.
The German guns would shoot a solid shot at 3500 feet/second, that meant they had 2 or 3 times the penetrating power of our shells and so they went through our tanks like a hot knife through butter.
We took 580% losses over time, I don't think anybody took those kind of losses anywhere in the war, army, navy or air force. A tank gunner said to Eisenhower: 'General, in order to knock out a German tank I've got to get within 600 yards and catch it in the flank. They can knock me out at 2000 yards, head-on.'. We did that, but typically it would take 5 tanks being blown up before the 6th one got around to shoot a German tank in the back. The engine was chosens to be a high-powered lightweight engine, for speed because we need a fast tank that can exploit a breakthrough. However it was an aviation engine, and used high-octane fuel which was highly flammable. The job of a Sherman tank maintenance engineer was a grisly one. 'We had to clean the tanks out. It was a terrible job, with the heads shot off, and the arms and legs dismembered, it was just awful. We had to put the men in the tanks to get the bodies out and wrap it all up in a tarp. And the new crew that went in the tank knew that if they got hit in battle they were not going to be in good shape.'. The tanks that were knocked out were sent back for repair, and they came back, and they got into a tank that had just been freshly painted to cover over the blood stains, and there were obvious patches in it, where the mechanics had plugged the holes. They knew what they were going up against, they knew they were outclassed and if they went up against a Panther or Tiger they were in trouble.


If we don’t fight them online, and now, we may have to fight them in the streets.

They are so incredibly weak and pathetically soft, in mind, body and spirit.

Words cannot express the level of contempt they deserve.

Race certainly can be one component of it. Here's how. Labor can produce wealth. Labor can be by the sweat of one's brow, the typing with one's fingers, or one's wealth. Having lived below my means for over 40 years means that I've managed to save money -- and that money is making money. In fact, that money now earns far more than the average salary in the US. This is a primary reason why the rich get richer. Money can work harder than an individual to make money.

Now, for whatever reason -- either nature or nurture -- individuals and groups with shorter time preferences will not compete well against individuals and groups with larger time preferences.

And we know, again for whatever reason, that equatorial groups typically exhibit shorter time preferences that others.

Every single race group in the U.S. shared equally in the income and wealth increases for decades. Then, taxes were significantly reduced on the wealthy. After that, wealth and income gains went disperportionately to the top 5% of the economic spectrum. Every race group saw their share of the income gains reduced after "tax relief" for the wealthy.

You're an idiot. The wealthy got less tax relief than the poor did - the bottom 40% of income earners literally get more back in tax credits than they pay in.

In reality, monetary policy was a huge part of what changed - we came off the Bretton-Woods system under Nixon and since then the Fed has run rampant even more so than normal. Inflation with very little wage increases crushes the poor and middle class while people who own stocks or a lot of property are mostly unaffected.

It does make me laugh that the left STILL tries to complain that the US income tax - the most progressive income tax in the world by a large margin - still isn't progressive enough. There are no more tax breaks for the bottom 40% because they do not pay income tax and haven't for over a decade. The top 10% pays 70% of income tax.

That's laughable. Consider the tax rates on investment income and capital gains compared to earned income.

The lowest 90% of income and wealth percentiles get almost all their wealth and income from earned income.

I think you're idealizing a brief period of time that might, or might not, have continued the way you hope it would. "Income inequality" has been around for a lot longer than ≈70 years.
However, it's not a bad idea to treat symptoms.It is if it never cures the underlying disease. Because then all you do is end up paying for a treatment that never ends. The money flows from the "sick" to those who never deliver a cure. It's not unlike state lotteries, which are nothing more than an income tax on stupid people.

The rage of the Liberals is not just that there are right-wingers who refuse to agree with their world-view and philosophy....but that those who were their slaves for so long might back sass their betters or raise their hand in defiance.

The Left is not too surprised that the Right is always wrong....after all, education and intelligence and such.....but what they find infuriating is that the Right would have the audacity and shameless temerity to parade around in public flaunting their naked racism and ignorance....defying those who know better and mocking all that is good and equal.

@125 Support for unions won't do all that much. I remember the head of the AFL CIO being on Lou Dobbs in the early 2000's who admitted they couldn't do much at all for their members when jobs were heading overseas.

1st world workers can't compete against 3rd world living and environmental standards without changes in trade policy. As for your earlier racial comments, a white kid with downs syndrome effectively has many higher paid careers cut off to them. You can't complete a course in differential equations to get an engineering degree with an IQ score of 80. Further the Washington Post admitted in several articles over the past 2 years that drops in standardized test scores correlate with changing demographics.

That article is so chocked full of lies and distortion that it staggers. One hardly knows where to begin! But I'd like to ask those gamer girls who supposedly got themselves run out of a video game, what did you do? How on Earth did you manage that?

This is so contrary to my experience. Whenever we find out a player is a female, her stock automatically rises among all the guys. They like gamer chicks. They will want to run with her a while, just to see what she's like. Her girlishness will not only be tolerated, it will be encouraged.

There's a bias out there alright, but it's a pro gamer girl bias. A girl is really going to have work to overcome that and therefore screw up what should be a pretty easy and fun situation for her.

Tax on investment income is STILL a tax. The bottom 40% not only don't pay income tax, they get money back. It's literally a welfare program. Of course, it doesn't make up for the disastrous inflationary monetary policy, 3rd world colonization, and "free trade" policies that are actually to blame, but you still want to pretend that if we just tax rich people more and poor people less (even though it is literally impossible to tax the poor less when it comes to Federal income tax) everything will be JUST. FINE.

It's just the elites wanting more power and more cash. End the Fed, close the borders and deport, and America First are the answers. It's part of the reason that the traitor left hates Trump so much.

Part of the misunderstanding is that they are blaming any heat that "gamer girls" get online on male gamers. In reality, a huge chunk of it comes from other women. It's just like the whole "slut shaming" complaint they make at men: it's actually women doing most of it.

But of course women can't be held responsible for anything, so it must be blamed on men. And evil white nerd gamers are just too irresistible a target for them.

The wish for more girls to be game players is a widely held subconscious desire male game players have. There's one problem with it, reality. Once exposed to enough gamer-girls a male game player comes to one conclusion, they're not worth the trouble and the bad ones outnumber the good ones. Here's how that works.

There's a subspecies of gamer-girl ubiquitous to woman-kind, the drama addicted entitled bitch. If you belong to an ingame group that wants to stay together and get things done you do not tolerate certain gamer-girls or your group will stop getting things done and will fall apart as the competent players are driven away. This goes double if she's a girlfriend of one of your group's leaders. Pure social poison. I've seen it personally more than once.

Even if your gamer-girl's personality is mostly pleasant she will more than likely make it more difficult to accomplish game goals as a group. Her first inclination is to monopolize the time of one or more male players. She will do this to satiate her need for validation. She isn't there for the same reason the males are. She's there for the social interaction first and the game second.

There are females that are serious gamers but they are rare. I've known some that hide that they are female because they don't even want to get the flirt train started. They just want to play the damn game.

Blogger Cail Corishev July 24, 2017 2:20 PM  

Whenever we find out a player is a female, her stock automatically rises among all the guys.

I've been saying that since the "Moar Girls in Coding" stuff started, and they claimed girls were being excluded. Any girl who walks into that world instantly becomes the belle of the ball, with an effective SMV 3-4 points higher than it should be. She won't even have to be talented, because guys will fight over the chance to do her work for her. See Zoe Quinn or Randi Harper. (It's less true at the high levels where the work is seriously hard, but absolutely true below that.)

Of course, the reality is that women dont want that at all. They don't want to be trapped (and "trapped" is how it would feel) in a room full of geeks who worship them. So they exclude themselves. But they can't admit that, so they end up blaming the geeks for keeping them out because sexism.

Blogger Snidely Whiplash July 24, 2017 2:24 PM  

False equivalencies just make you look stupid. That's called reality leaking through.
People unable to think more than 1 year out think things like tax policy are important.
For instance, the single major cause of income inequality is immigration. Stop immigration, watch working class wages rise, and unemployment fall. The second major cause is outsourcing all of our manufacturing. Implement a reasonable tariff and watch working class incomes and employment soar.
Health care could easily be addressed simply by enforcing current law against monopoly and price fixing. It is, however, exacerbated by our insane immigration situation.

Tax policy is a third-order effect of the real problem, addressing our inequality or infrastructure problems through tax policy is putting a bandaid on a tumor.

"He means disagreeing with them"

Yeah, most of the piece was boilerplate leftist projection (including the first part of the same sentence, "they've shut down leftist speeches"), but that part was quite revealing. More specifically, he means, not just disagreeing with them, but mocking them.

To the Left, mockery (and threats of social exclusion) are "torture." This is not deliberate hyperbole; the author really believes this. Part of this is a particular vulnerability of the Leftist psyche, and part of it is that if lack of trust in the legacy media is a serious threat to the narrative.

In other words, what he's saying is "Please stop. It really gets us in the feelz when you do that. Pleas stay away from our weak points."

This is why we trigger.

Blogger Cail Corishev July 24, 2017 3:44 PM  

@174, It's not common if everything's above-board, no. I just checked, and Perfect Privacy doesn't just have the DNS; they own the domain snopes.com. It's theirs to do with as they please. Mr. Snopes will have to go to court and try to convince a judge that it should be his, which is what he's collecting money for.

In the olden days of the Internet, some forward-thinking people registered domains like ford.com (not necessarily that one), figuring they'd get paid big when the big corporations woke up and decided to get online. If they didn't ask too much, they usually got it, because it wasn't a clear legal area yet. Some asked for a king's ransom, and so the corps started taking it to court as a trademark issue, and got the right to just take them in most cases. But in this case, if Snopes is a trademark, the company that provided the hosting and other services may have an argument that it's as much theirs as anyone else's, since it's not a name that existed outside of the web site.

Reading between the lines of that page, I'd guess one of the parties wanted more money, and Mr. Snope said, "Well, you're fired then," and PP said, "Well, it's actually ours, so you're fired, see ya."

@158-There's an episode of Seinfeld where Geroge and Jerry agree they're both attracted to cleaning women and chamber maids. Jerry asks, "Why is that?"

George answers, "It's a woman in your room."

There's two parts to the woman in your room phenomenon. One is simple propinquity. It's nice not to have to go far to find them, and being confronted with an actual woman tends to activate men's romantic mode, or at least turn them on, more than the mere idea of women, off somewhere in the blue.

Then there's the novelty. You may have women in your room every night, but for most unattached men it's out of the ordinary. There's your usual stuff, you, then this woman. Whoa, where'd she come from.

With the cleaning lady idea, however, there's not necessarily the hierarchical difference. I don't think George in that episode was supposed to be below the cleaning lady. I've tried to imagine what it feels like to be an attractive woman in a room full of inferior men to whom I'm not the least bit attracted. Maybe when salesmen try to pitch me without my wanting to buy. That just feels like a hassle.

I've been telling people this for years. The left wants to do ever so much more to you than they've been doing for the last 30 years, and if they ever get the chance, they'll take it in a heartbeat.

The time of politeness and speeches has long since passed, from here it just gets more and more physical.

You all have no idea how wonderful it is to have found people who understand that politics (especially the current flavor of identity politics) is a bloodsport and treat it thus.

By myself, I was just one grumpy white guy. In the alt-right, I am one grumpy in an army of grumpy white guys, malcontents, poltards, and general shit disturbers.
