SJW will not protect you

Not even relentless virtue-signaling is proving sufficient to save the alleged sexual harassers in comics:
I understand that Group Editor of the Superman comics Eddie Berganza has informed staffers at the DC offices that Buzzfeed is about to publish an expose feature all about him and allegations that have been made against him regarding sexual harassment.

In 2012, Bleeding Cool reported the story that such an incident was alleged to have taken place in a hotel lobby at WonderCon in Anaheim.

I received multiple reports that the subject of the original post was DC Comics then-Executive Editor Eddie Berganza and the woman was a comic book creator in her own right, a partner of a regular DC writer, and an occasional convention reporter for Bleeding Cool.

She did not want to be named back then – she was afraid it might damage her work prospects and wanted to move on, and we respected that. But a few weeks later Bleeding Cool was able to name Eddie Berganza as the man allegedly responsible.

We later learnt that a number of complaints against Berganza had been made over previous years, including this one. During this period, he was demoted from Executive Editor to Group Editor, and reportedly banned from attending comic conventions for DC.
Between the Marvel-destroying SJW Brian Bendis moving to DC and Berganza's slow-motion departure, this is really shaping up to be a tremendous vacuum for Alt★Hero to begin filling next spring.

And whether the accusations are true or not, this insidious environment is merely one of the many reasons you are very unlikely to ever see me at a comic convention. Can you even imagine how many female SJWs would be lining up to go public with their claims that I killed them, dismembered them, and raped them with their own severed limbs if I was foolish enough to so much as let them shake my hand?

Meanwhile, SJW convergence continues to kill the comics.
Sales of comics and graphic novels to comic stores declined 11.12% in October in comparison to the year ago period, according to information released by Diamond Comic Distributors.  Comic sales were the entire source of the decline; comic sales declined 15.74%, while graphic novel sales were up 2.37%. Year-to-date sales are down 10.12%, overall, with comic sales down 9.93% and graphic novel sales down 10.55%.
Even more interesting, unit sales were down 20.27 percent year-on-year.

Marvel Comics is slowly becoming known as the 'try-hards' or 'fake creator' venue. Diversity & Comics was spot on when he said the new talent there was hired, not on merit and experience, but by how many PC boxes they checked off, and their following on social media.

As I look back on my comic readings, I am sure my 14 year old self would have walked away from the SJW crap they turn out now. Boys wanted heroes not costume zeros. Peter Parker had more than enough angst to make me turn him off at the time. And, Batman was strong silent and tough. Not the namby-pamby one we have now.

Dude, you're not kidding. The CW DC shows are so converged it borders on parody. Black Jimmy Olsen, black Green Arrow, hispanic Black Canary, gay and black Mr. Terrific, White Canary is a lesbian, "Legends" just added a futuristic Muslim superhero...tons of race-mixing, anti-white propaganda, not-subtle-at-all Trump digs...I mean, Oliver Queen is literally reduced to cameo appearances on Arrow because the city is now patrolled by a team consisting of three black guys and two Hispanics. Throw in the Hillary fantasties embodied by Linda Carter's female alien president and you've literally got a cucknado of SJW rot. It's really sad because they've got so much potential...the special effects, for CW, are actually really decent. Sad!

That's not correct.

a) SJWAL clearly states that following its advice won't keep you from being fired.
b) (((Louis CK))) is a gamma, which is no more protection from SJW wrath than being an SJW is.
c) "Showing one's dick" is not a power play, it is a serious weakness. That's why the ladies are free to take him down now. Had he simply seduced them like a normal man, he wouldn't be getting nuked now.

SJWAL is great advice for normal members of society.
It is not going to work for gammas because they are:

a) not normal and
b) self-destructive (due to permanent disassociation from failure.).

http://www.comichron.com/monthlycomicssales/2017/2017-09.html

But that's not actually a sales number, it's a "shipped number". That's how many copies Marvel shoved out the door. Most of those will sit on the shelf and find themselves in the ten cent long boxes.

Which makes Comichron not terribly useful for hard numbers, but they do provide a useful way of gauging interest over time. So, for example, you can see watch the number steadily fall from near 23,000 in April.

They tried to mix the deadpan humor of The Office in with superhero stuff. The superhero guy and the other fools were all young white guys. The big sight gag was the guy who went around with a vaguely octopus looking head dress Somebody needs to tell them that a sight gag wears thin if you go on and on with it. After that it is just tiresome.

The octopus headgear mounted guy was the viewpoint character. The essentially dreary part was combined with an actor who did nothing to sell it. I did get a small amount of pleasure from the bad guy, but then I am susceptible to ham acting. Otherwise it was flat, boring and horrible. I endured it for a half hour in the hope that something would turn up, but nothing did. To ask a mainly rhetorical question, how do they get people to watch that stuff?

I wonder how much of this is a deliberate decision by the owners and managers of DC and Marvel to attempt to ride out the storm and push their noxious propaganda, backed by the billions from Disney and Warner Brothers? We know the so called MCU is supposed to be an extension of the comic books, so there should be a feedback loop (Robert Downey Jr is getting a bit long in tooth to play Iron Man in the movies, so you can see a planned transition to "Iron girl" in the movies to mesh with the comics) to push the SJW narrative to "11".

Perhaps luckily for us, the implosion of the SJW machine seems to be happening far faster than would have seemed possible before last November (and certainly much faster than I anticipated). This sexual harassment scandal is building a positive feedback loop both because it is based on the reality these people aver been living, but also the puritanical and "oh so moral" messages they have been feeding *us* for years as our supposedly social, intellectual and moral superiors now gets turned on them.

My big hope is this seriously damages the financial networks that have been put in place by the Progressive over the decades. The huge amounts of money that Hollywood and the rest of the entertainment industry used to push to the Democrat Party and Progressive causes will rapidly start drying up as the numbers continue to fall, and we have already see the desperate amounts of resources the Dems are willing to pour into electoral races ($20 million in the Georgia special election).

So 2018 could be a great cusp, as the Dems burn through mountains of cash, but run up against a solid wall from the Populists supporting the God Emperor, and achieve very little for their massive expenditure of resources.

On our side, we will need to get more organized, more cunning and look at more subtle tools (both to use them and to counter their use by the Progressives, i.e behavioural nudging). Who would have ever thought the opening to get into the enemy position would be via video games and comics?

The episodes for super girl's sister to come out, nearly half of each of them dedicated to super lesbian gayness? I quit watching and never looked back. Arrow is unwatchable and flash is a cucked cringe fest. Legends of tomorrow is so vile no one should watch it. DC tv is as bad as marvel comics.

Um, what? Hello? Sorry? Who knows this? Because claiming to know this patently false bit of information either makes you dumb, lying through you're teeth, or just plum misinformed. Let me repeat something to the people here who seem deadset on this bit of fake news here: The MCU and 616 are as separate as you can get and still be owned by the same company.

Blogger Howard Stone November 10, 2017 10:32 PM  

Marvel and DC are playing the long game. When you think about Marvel being owned by Disney, Disney is so big it can afford to lose money on comics for a time, ten, fifteen twenty years? That’s their plan, they don’t care about current comic readers, they are right now writing comics for our children and our children’s children.

Great plan if your company is invulnerable. ESPN bleeding out, Marvel losing sales rapidly, MCU probably looking to go full SJW to the public, Disney putting squeeze on theater owners and customers with next Star Wars social justice slop film, and -- Disney TV -- feh.

Not likely that Disney is going to sweep up kids in the future if no one is watching. They are killing their own audience, and the audience is catching on.

Blogger Howard Stone November 10, 2017 11:05 PM  

@MOTA, well that’s the thing, it’s a culture war, and it’s sort of like a siege scenario, we have Disney under seige, so it all comes down to how long they can hold out, and so yeah Disney is going to try and protect it’s bottom line as much as possible, but it’s not going to cave to our demands, because Disney is not an entertainment company. They are not in business to entertain us. Maybe at one point way back when Walt first started the company, maybe, but Disney today is a culture creator; they are out to change hearts and minds. That’s why they bought up Marvel and Star Wars, not to keep entertaining us, but to use these franchises to shape, and dir ct our culture mainly by targeting the very impressionable minds of our children.

And once it's widely known that Disney is doing "mind shaping", those tools become useless. So, no. Not buying that they are anywhere as intelligent as they need to be to do what you say.

SJWs can't play a long game as they can't shut up, can't stop lying, can't stop doubling down, can't stop projecting. Their personality defects destroy them.

MOTA, but the SJWs are the useful idiots, they are coming out of universities where they were made into what they are. The corporations work with the universities and influence eduction, they put in an order for so many million SJWs and the univiersities fill their orders. They will be discarded when the system is done with them.

@82,

The problem with that line of thinking is that it presumes that Disney et al, can just shovel their slop directly to the children without the parents noticing or intervening. They can't influence anything if their garbage never reaches said children's eyes in the first place. The reality is that the "seige" has been going on 50 years now, and the leftists who wanted to bring down the american fortress forgot they swapped places with the besieged when they did their long march thru the institutions. At this point they are using the ballistae on their own walls.

The fact is VD, many, but not all, used that casting couch willingly, or grudgingly, to advance their careers. Many, but not all, knew the price they would pay, to be stars.

Many marriages in HollyWeird were marriages of nothing more than convenience.

"...she was afraid it might damage her work prospects..." That just does not elicit pity or respect for me.

On the other hand, for those that tried, at least they tried.

Blogger Howard Stone November 10, 2017 11:57 PM  

Mathias, you’re absolutely right, parents are going the gateway, but are there enough of us that can make the difference? That’s the question. Disney as an entity is virtually immortal, it’s not subject to the limited life span that we are. It will outlast generations. Today they are planting seeds that won’t bear fruit for decades maybe longer. So yeah, we can boycott, we can protect our children from them, but how many of us are informed and disciplined for that? I’m not saying Disney will win, but I’m saying we need to know what we’re really dealing with here if we are going to be able to take them on.

Blogger Howard Stone November 11, 2017 12:13 AM  

MOTA, I don’t think they’re unbeatable, just that you need to know first that you’re in a fight, and second who you’re fighting. One way to fight back is to totally stop consuming any media made by any of these corporations. I hear a lot of talk about D&C YouTube channel, well, at best he’s a fence sitter which means he’s not helping, and at worst he is a shill doing some sort of weird reverse psychology/ apologetics for marvel and DC. No, we don’t need videos unpacking SJW comics. We need to stop buying and t adding and giving any attention at all to any and all of it. Star Wars; dead, Star Trek, dead, Spider-Man, Superman, Batman, Wolverine, The Hulk, dead, dead and dead, and they are never coming back again. Grieve and move on and create our own media/platforms or support others that are like Alt-Hero etc.

Anonymous CoolHand November 11, 2017 1:13 AM  

@91 Many of us are doing that already. I have not paid to see a movie in over ten years. I haven't had cable or DISH for almost four, and never had HBO et al even then. I haven't bought a comic book in probably fifteen years (until Alt-Hero anyway).

Many of us have been on this train for a long time, so the stuff you're saying isn't that much of a "revelation" to us.

We're over here like, "Welcome to the party, Pal."

Ditch the doom and gloom outlook and go talk to some people with kids. You'd be amazed how few let them watch all the stuff you're worried about.

The days of the absent and self-absorbed boomer parents who park their kids in front of the TV for large swaths of the day have been over for years and years.

I've got millennial friends with kids who don't even let them use a computer, play video games, or watch TV of any kind. "Go outside and ride your bike or do something to get dirty."

I know millennials get a bad rap almost everywhere, but I know more good ones than bad, and nearly all of them are better than their boomertard parents, even the insufferable ones (they're still more tolerable than their parents).

Of course, this out in flyover country, where nobody cares what the people in NYC or LA are doing or what the "elites" think of them.

@89, @90,

Well, exponential growth is the key here. What Mr. Stone misses is that Disney's current size is due to said growth, and is still subject to it's effects. In the modern day, growth of a business can be exponential, if there is room to grow, but the same network effects that enable exponential growth also facilitate exponential collapse. In other words, a preference cascade. That which has the power to give has the power to take away, as the NFL is learning.

Yeah, let's throw the guy who gets more hits on a comic review than most mainstream comics get sales under the bus. Let's punch at the dude who social-media triggers the Marvel/DC SJWs from the trenches up to the boardroom. The guy whose mocking got the filth working for Marvel to publicly state they planned to stalk him and frame him for a crime -- that's conspiracy, bud.

That's damned well reasoned. Not. The more you talk, the more you sound like a disrupter.

"SJW will not protect you ..."

1. Allow the SJWs to latch on to your fast-moving armoured publicity vehicle;
2. Cause extensive damage to the SJWs who have latched on when you hit the ad hoc SJW barriers at ramming speed;
3. Clean and gut any SJW corpses so they may be used as prophylactics;
4. Wrap your fast-moving armoured publicity vehicle in prophylactic SJW corpses whilst daring any new SJWs to "come at me, bruv".

I respectfully disagree -- I think they'll provide highly entertaining protection. :-)

I'd say that falls under "Be Careful What You Wish For," for both the millennial dumbasses wanting Communism as well as the monsters who indoctrinated them. If the millennial idiots get a dose of communism good and hard it won't be long till they drag out their indoctrination masters, and murder them in the streets.
