Too much social justice

At least two conventions have decided not to let SJWs talk them into self-evisceration:
Dragon*Con decided that alienating half the country was not worth the loud-mouthed SJWs who only accept people who are just like them, as Ms. Stromborn wanted the convention to be.

Her refusing to back down unless certain authors were uninvited and Dragon*Con taking a stand against the attempted political mobbing marks the first time a convention has openly gone against the SJW hate mob. This is a big shift in culture as people are fast learning that the SJWs don’t actually create “inclusive spaces” they actively attempt to exclude normal people which eventually shuts down a convention, or kills the audience off and harms a group financially.

ConCarolinas Back On Track

But there was a second instance this weekend. ConCarolinas at their closing ceremonies announced they made a mistake with John Ringo, and henceforth will no longer be using political ideology as a litmus test for who gets invited. This is great news as well, and it means that ConCarolinas is going to stick to their original mission of promoting geek fandom and literature, and is standing up to the bullies who successfully mobbed Mr. Ringo out of the convention earlier this year.
Good for them. At this rate, they may be the only two conventions remaining in ten years.

The petition to name Ringo, Correia, and Weber the new officers of the Lollipop Guild got more signatures than the one to throw out the current ConCarolinas staff...

Excellent news.

Better late than never, but the fact that it happened at all shows they need new management.

Dragon Con - Atlanta
ConCarolinas - Charlotte

Both in the South. Both in states won by Trump.

I wonder if 1. ESR made it to Penguicon this year and 2. if it is avoiding convergence.

I used to live within walking distance. I'm far happier far enough away today that any known WMD wouldn't affect me were the convention to act as ground zero.

I think they are attempting to avoid it, but SJWs are persistent as the mouse that when I saw ended up in a glue trap, but did not survive until I was ready for the vivisection.

Gencon on the other hand is going to give "get woke, go broke," a shot.

The Industry Guests of Honor program is a new initiative for 2018. Once known as the Industry Insider Featured Presenter program, Industry Guests of Honor are selected based on a theme and continuing the tradition of "best-in-class" events. The theme for 2018 is "change makers".

Gen Con has invited three individuals - Nolan T. Jones, =>Anita Sarkeesian<= and Jordan Weisman - all considered "change makers" in the hobby and industry of games and the culture built around them.


Gencon is owned by Wizards of the Coast, so moving in on tabletop games is low hanging fruit to the SJWs.

WOC now feels so secure in their market dominance they are going to start attacking their customers.

I've had a couple of comments disappear into the ether today as well. I get the 'Your Comment was Published' notification but they never showed.

Well and good. Now when will the SFWA implode? I used to like reading SF and Fantasy, but the SJWs have ruined it. Half the military SF books have some random looking chick in tights holding a gun on the cover. Downloaded a Kindle sample of an author I'd been able to marginally tolerate before, but lost my lunch when the soldier protagonist walked into a unisex bathroom. Not buying, that's for sure. I realize Tor is one of the big forces behind SJW SF, and I'm grateful for Castalia House's countering influence.

Yeah, I've had some of my posts evaporate as well. It just says "There was an error". Then when I reload, it says the comment was published, but it's not there.

Blogger DonReynolds June 10, 2018 9:03 PM  

How is it possible (with a straight face) to claim that you are passionate about being "inclusive", when the first thing you demand is to EXCLUDE the people (and the audience) that does not parrot your fine example?

Of course, "inclusive" is simply a lie, and always has been. Much like the other proclaimed passion...."diversity". There is nothing diverse about "diversity". It is simply a buzzword that means anti-white. No, it is not even about equal representation or even proportionate representation. Even in institutions and organizations that are overwhelmingly Negro, they still whine and complain about not being "diverse" enough. Very likely, even 100 percent would not be black enough for some people.

I honestly do not mind. That may be the only workable solution going forward from this moment. Let them have the NBA and NFL and any other entity that social justice dictates must be 100 percent black. In no time at all, the audience and spectators will all be black too...and before that, the sponsors and advertisers will all be black as well. Then they can finish the job of making major cities totally Afrikan, with no whites allowed. And finally, they will get their own government, their own laws, and write their own history books.
WE will not mind in the least.

I am very happy to see the SJWs finally getting a dose of inclusivity and tolerance.

I’m in contact with the gal who runs ConCarolinas. She’s a very nice person and I’m supporting. Part of the strategic error of our adversaries is no matter the outcome, they always say “it’s not enough.” That’s not how you win the hearts and minds. We have a victory here and should take it and applaud/Support ConCarolinas for their open mindedness. Have to reward the good as much as condemn the bad in these conflicts.

Yes. In retrospect, SJWs peaked around 2013-2014. They never recovered from GamerGate. And Trump was the death blow. They are currently bleeding out.

Look at how Star Wars films are now declining and even outright flopping. Because SJWs are now more hated than Star Wars is loved.

I expect that within 5-10 years, their influence will be negligible.

Yes, like Detroit....which was the richest city in America during my lifetime. Now look at it. And don't forget to look at Memphis, Atlanta, New Orleans, Washington, Philly, Newark, Chicago, Cleveland, Oakland, Baltimore, Richmond, Charlotte, .....

I am sure you can think of several more, but why to bother to type the names. They are all the way they are for one reason only.

Yes, I am too kind.

"WOC now feels so secure in their market dominance they are going to start attacking their customers."

They've been doing that ever since they were given the Avalon Hill catalog (which was several times larger than their own offerings), and basically told everyone who wasn't into Axis & Allies [warmed-over Risk] to go f themselves.

@25

"Yes, like Detroit....which was the richest city in America during my lifetime."

Richest city in the world.

I remember as a child, going on family vacations... to literally ANYWHERE, and even in 1977 (10 years after the riot that went on so long that LBJ sent in the 82nd Airborne with armor support), no matter where we went, the destination seemed primative compared to Detroit.

Now it's somewhere between 30% and 60% destroyed.

Entire city blocks which I remember standing when we would go to Detroit Tigers games have only 1 or 2 houses still standing.

And these were houses which, before the 1950's (when Detroit became "The Motor City") were the houses which were the source of its previous nickname (since about 1920) -- THE CITY OF MANSIONS.

And indeed, in 1970, almost all of those mansions were still standing. Now, the few that remain, most are rotting shells, with partial roofs.

I don't understand why blacks from North Carolina and Mississippi don't understand the concept of "fix the roof before the ceiling caves in"

No. It's time to start studying the NFL and NBA hiring practices for "disparate impact" against whites and asians. Make them live by their own rules.

Blogger Stilicho June 11, 2018 7:33 AM  

@james Dixon: exactly, it matters not that Lebron James is more talented than some white player-- if that white player is qualified to play in the NBA, then the Cavs must hire him. Once that is established, cue up the class actions. The Supreme Court has openly stated that affirmative action has a sell-by date (and implicitly admitted that it is both wrong and illegal), so I would expect leftists to start quoting Justice O'Connor's opinion once their rules are applied to them. If they don't, at least we'll be able to destroy the NBA as it currently exists. Who knows, professional basketball Ayer might even learn to dribble again.

A few years ago I was dating a girl from Philly. She visited home one time. When she came back, she told me how her and her friends got mugged and had to give up everything they had on them.

What was positively shocking to me was the casual way she told this story, like it happened every day, all the time (because it does). Very nonchalant. It shook me to the core: how could ANYONE just shrug off a mugging? That shit is NOT normal in a civilized society.

That was my introduction to the joys of diversity. I come from a farm town in Ohio, we had two black kids in the entire town, and they were adopted by a lesbian couple. That family was the only poz for miles and miles, literally everyone else was white, straight, and Christian.

You have no idea how feral non-whites are until you live near them.

Blogger SouthRon June 11, 2018 8:08 AM  

A number of us told ConCarolinas we'd take a pass this year. For me, Atlanta isn't much further.

@Otto, I'd hardly consider Charlotte part of The South. Yes, North Carolina voted for Trump. Charlotte did not. Also, Charlotte and Durham are where they played with the vote to oust our Republican Governor over HB2, the "Bathroom Bill", which existed in the first place because Gay City, USA's, aka Charlotte's, City Council decided to allow trannies into any john. There is very little about Charlotte that is Southern at this point. It would still be a small city, rather than the largest city in North Carolina if all the New York and California banks hadn't decided they needed another hub, and to build that in Charlotte.

The one interesting thing about the city is to watch the ongoing spiritual war that is fought there. It is where Billy Graham Evangelical Associations sits and it is where all the bicoastal liberals and LGBTQWTF have flocked. If you are at all spiritually sensitive it is interesting to visit BGEA there and the various hot spots in the city and to feel the difference. It's like driving into Denver and hitting that cold, dark wall of oppression that exists there.

Interesting article at The Declination on SJW techniques, which argue it is always and only about power.

t is important to understand the scope and purpose of the SJW’s actions. For them, there is no other purpose to life than the battle for control over other human beings. Folks, I know I’ve said this many times in the past, but people really need to take this to heart fully. It’s very hard for a mind not bent toward power to comprehend fully a mind that is bent that way.

They do not care about safety, or the children ™, or equality, or any other excuse. Racism does not matter to them, nor does sexism. Wealth inequality does not matter to them. What matters to them is power, and these things are seen as convenient vehicles for this power. Were SJWs alive in 1930s Germany, they would have blamed all their woes upon the Jews, as they blame straight white Christian men now. It would have been convenient for them.

Charlotte was ruined by people in Buffalo and Boston who sold their shacks for hundreds of thousands of dollars and moved South to avoid high property taxes then voted in the same type of Liberals who raise taxes whenever they can.

Increasingly Middle class people can't afford to live there.
