Just another skull

John Scalzi laments that the Evil Legion of Evil has shown people across the Right that there is no information value in rhetoric and that SJWs exist solely for the skull-taking:
It’s really frustrating to me that more people don’t understand that racist/alt-right people have gamified their rhetoric; they’re not interested in discussion, they’re slapping down cards from a “Debate: The Gathering” stack, and the only goal is taking heads.

They gamify their rhetoric because essentially this shit is a low-stake game for them, whereas for other people it’s their actual lives. That’s an advantage they have. If they lose, they shuffle their cards and go on to the next thing. If others lose, their life takes a hit.

And because their rhetorical strategy is essentially card-based, actual knowledge of issues is unimportant and probably a hinderance. They don’t want or need to understand the issues that affect others, they just need you to play their game so they can win.

I don’t have time anymore to diddle about with children who think other people’s lives are some sort of turn-based game, especially when all they want is to hurt other people. And it bothers me more people, especially those with power, don’t understand this shit.

I’m not going to tell people not to engage with these chuckleheads. But don’t engage with them on their terms. Engage with them on your own. One, they hate that, and two, it exposes what they’re doing as a pointless, hateful exercise, and them as awful people.

In sum: Understand what these folks are doing. Refuse to play along. And if you choose, point out to others the hollowness of their game. Because their “game” is to hurt other people, and then go on to the next target. Their game is other people’s lives.
The amusing thing about this is the complete lack of awareness McRapey shows regarding why we have no stakes in their game. We've already been disqualified. We've already been counted out. We've already been expelled. So we don't give a quantum of a damn for their opinion, their rules, their careers, or their lives any more. We are coming after them, relentlessly, and it costs us absolutely nothing to do so. Indeed, we will profit by it.

We aren't interested in discussion. We aren't interested in debate. And we know they aren't either. They never were. So now we seek only to expose them, to ruin them, and to take their sad little skulls as trophies. Metaphorically, of course. (whistles innocently, kicks a suspiciously round object out of view of the webcam)

It doesn't matter how they engage with us. It doesn't matter if they engage with us. We are winning and we are going to continue to win until they are no more. We're not locked in here with them, they are locked in here with us. And the VFM are hungry.

UPDATE: RIP Whatever:
So, I don’t know if you know this, but next month will mark the 20th anniversary of the existence of Whatever. This is a fact that among other things is causing me both practical and existential reflection on what this place is, and what it means to me, and what is the best way to keep doing it moving forward, particularly in an age where “blogs” are not the center of online gravity that they used to be.... I’m not calling it an official hiatus mostly because I have enough going on that it doesn’t make sense to go away completely, but I also don’t want y’all to worry if you don’t see me posting a lot here between now and September.
WE. ARE. AMUSED. Everyone who remembers the old school blogosphere knows what this post means.

Curious metaphor from McRapey:

It sounds like he's complaining about "Rules for Radicals". The irony is rich, now that HE has an ostensible life within the establishment it is sacrosanct. The pile of skulls it was built in are a garnish.

If you removed the first half of the first sentence, it would be impossible to know which group he's actually talking about.

The "diddle about with children" comment really stuck out like a sore thumb to me as well. Do these people just blurt out their guilt because they lack impulse control, or do they subconsciously want to be found out?

Blogger SirMaorio August 06, 2018 10:49 AM  

love the Rorschach reference. by now our very existence should be enough to make them go "reeee" so we should just stand up and say "hi". with only the knowledge I've managed to take from the SJW manuals our proprietor has given us I suspect McRapey will continue to "not have time for these chuckleheads" and also will not have time to write the next novel in that series he's supposed to be doing.

He makes allusions to the Magic the Gathering card game, why? What the fuck does a weird card game played by spergs have to with 'Nazis' attacking the left? Does it have something to do with the Quartering exposing all the convicted pedos being allowed to act as judges at children's Magic the Gathering events? He goes on to talk about how he doesn't have time to diddle children. What the hell did I just read?

It is really really funny that Shitbird Scalzi thinks that we don't understand that this is real lives, real careers.

Yeah, we get it. It's what WE have been dealing with for 30 years. We have lost our lives and our livelihood. We will win, but it will be Pyrrhic because the same tactics by the left cost us everything long, long ago.

What we want now is an honor guard in hell. This is called 'reprisal', and we will continue because people on our side have finally figured out that it is the only tactics that work against the left's Terrorism.

For every Youtube channel defunded because of a hysterical gender neutral transsexual negro lesbian screaming about white privilege, we will get ten of you fired for your comments about burning white women.

For every guy that loses his job because of a dongle joke, we will send 10 lefties to Jail for diddling children.

And you really, really do not want to know what we would have done if you'd managed to get those idiot 'hate speech' UK-style laws passed.

We are finally getting serious and treating this like a war.

Yet another brick in the very tall and solid wall of evidence that those SJW's get fried when their rules of engagement are reflected in their faces. Hoisted by their own petards, that's an oldie, but it works very well here. A lot of truth to be found when people are observed refusing to look in the mirror.

For someone who has no time to discuss said target, he sure talks a lot.

The projection is stunning here. Scalzi is complaining that we're carelessly wrecking other people's lives for amusement. Has he never heard of Tim Hunt? Of Jack Phillips? Of John Shnatter? His side has been doing this for decades, and now he's just getting a bit edgy because we're starting to punch back.

Geez, I've exposed myself sufficiently publicly that I know I'll never have any kind of chance of a career in a standard corporate or even traditional conservative environment. They have made sure there is a very real price to be paid for espousing our beliefs. Payback is a bitch, Scalzi. Just like you.

Blogger Shimshon August 06, 2018 11:18 AM  

If (or when) Tor dumps Scalzi's contract, do they have to announce it? It seems like it would be preferable to both parties to save face, and just drop it down the memory hole by not mentioning it ever again. Which will be fine until Scalzi actually pens another "book" and needs to publish it somehow to pay for his lawn maintenance. Tor can create a special ebook only imprint just for him. Torpid Books.

Blogger Rabbi B August 06, 2018 11:26 AM  

We mind our own business, but they can't leave well enough alone. The last thing they expect is that the fight will be taken to them and reframed on our terms.

Once their foot is caught in the snare they laid for us, they can only project their own malice into the objects of their hatred, while representing their fight to any one who will listen as a justified means of self-defense, allegedly in order to prevent us from carrying out the nefarious plots they claim we've laid against them.

They have no idea what to do when we hit back, and are completely beside themselves when we hit back twice as hard.

@6: "His whole post is obviously referring to James Gunn, is he signalling to others?"

Yes. John is signaling to all that he is no longer willing to fight badthinkers on Twitter. (His political posts on Whatever have been scarce, too.)

John betrays the root cause of his concern: "And it bothers me more people, especially those with power, don’t understand this shit."

Those with power do understand. The people who run Macmillan want to sell books and make money, not subsidize authors who would rather posture on social media than write consistent best-sellers.

If Disney can fire a big-time-sure-thing director for embarrassing the corporate brand, then Macmillan (owns Tor Books) can fire any editor or author, regardless of stature, for the same reason.

John knows this. He is probably taking a mental inventory of all the edgy stuff that he has ever written, wondering which among his posts or tweets will place his contract in jeopardy.

Truth be said it's understandable that he do so. It's always worked before.

I'm too cheap to use silver for plating skulls, especially for mediocre SJW skulls. Pewter will do.

@91,

"I just skimmed his twitter act which seems to be his job these days, he's in depression, my guess he is not the flavor at Tor, the cons, and maybe at home. Because it's not political because he has no opposition from the right in his bubble only from those on the left who are crazier than him."

Scalzi's editor now touts Charlie Jane Anders as his most important discovery. And Scalzi's having to provide cover for a number of strange actions by Tor that appear to tied to Tor losing its number one spot in SFF and the Nielsen-Haydens losing prestige and power among the cons. Oh, and don't forget the Trump funk killing his muse, too.

Im a few skulls away from a complete pile.

I don't see the sarcasm there at all, the only difference between Netflix and Disney: Netflix will do this with adults, or at least teens, while Disney's lesbians will be in elementary school.

The importance PNH assigns to his writers has nothing to do with writing and everything to do with victim points.

About 20 years ago I was associated with a usenet group and later a mailing list where Scalzi and others used to congregate. It was most definitely liberal, and at the time I was a left-leaning centrist. (I would go further left before correcting myself after the experience of GamerGate, but that's another story.)

Now, I didn't have a lot of direct experience with John himself, but I was rather close to a Wellesley-educated woman (who never, ever shut up about it) My earliest memory of her was explaining repeatedly that Fatty Arbuckle Did Nothing Wrong. (Sorry E, but when you use your cult connections to give me a police visit over a Twitter argument, you lose any goodwill I had, but thanks for making me an expert on the secret commission and harassment statutes of the Criminal Code of Canada. Fairest amongst thousands, altogether ludicrous.)

Now, one of my other friends, whose ex-wife was a minister Shut up, Wellesley woman's husband's church, was always very reserved about that couple who were friends with Scalzi. He always said they were rather 'funny.' I've since realized he was probably talking about the Royal Order of Jesters. This guy also made some downright bizarre comments about his young daughter, which I've since come to learn may be a form of feeling one out to see if you like the pizza.

Anyway, circumstantial evidence, but I am so, so creeped out right now about the entire "Whatever" crowd (there's also a private mailing list). I had to get this off my chest.
