They can't say we didn't warn them


Some of you may recall this back on August 23, 2015:

No doubt George Martin, John Scalzi, David Gerrold, The Guardian, and the rest of the SJWs will try to portray this as a resounding defeat for us, but keep this in mind: the side that resorts to a scorched earth strategy is the one that is losing and in retreat. All they have accomplished is to convert many Sad Puppies into Rabid Puppies.
 

They have talked about sending us a message, and we have heard it. I don't know about you, but the message I heard was "bring more Puppies."

Give them credit where it is due. They made a serious effort, leading to 4,032 nominating ballots this year, nearly twice as many as last year's record total. It didn't matter. We heard the message. We brought more Puppies.

Well done, all of you Rabids. Very well done. According to Mike Glyer, the Rabid Puppies placed 64 of its 81 recommendations on the final ballot. I understand we actually would have done a little better than that were it not for the odd withdrawal or disqualification. (I'll do my own count tomorrow; David Barnett had it at 62 of 80 in the Guardian.) You understand, as the other side does not, that there is no end to cultural war. They still think we can be intimidated, or shamed, or guilted somehow, because those are the tactics that have worked for their kind for decades, if not generations.

But we are immune to such things. Let them scoff, let them minimize, let them posture, let them cry, it makes absolutely no difference what they do or what they say. There is nothing that they can do except vote No Award and change the rules

We have succeeded in breaking the Tor cabal's deleterious death grip on science fiction. Next year, the next phase will begin. And we will be ready for it.

Are you not entertained? And more importantly, are you in?

Leaving aside the unoriginal "white supremacist" schtick (can these people not come up with a better insult? Or at least a new one? Maybe they should watch Steve Martin's "Roxanne" for inspiration...Nevermind) it's funny to note that they while the narrative is being pushed how so much of the puppies stuff sucks, they have to admit some of it doesn't, is stuff they might actually like, and that they just, MIGHT, have to vote based on perceived quality rather than just no - award.

Hugo Nominations Are Out, And The Rabid Puppies Dominated The List. A Few Thoughts.
Posted on April 26, 2016 by Ampersand http://amptoons.com/blog/?p=21689

But the Rabid Puppies once again did a slate, chosen by one person – professional asshat Vox Day – which dominated Hugo nominations this year. But Day deliberately chose many nominees that would plausibly have been Hugo nominated anyway. (No one thinks that Neil Gaiman requires Vox Day’s help to get Hugo-nominated, for instance.)

Last year, I ranked every Puppy nominee below “no award” on my ballot. That seemed to be the right thing to do.

@58,

We've already won. The final vote is like kicking the extra point. That said, we'd need about 3000 or so more votes, so, unless the bronies, GG, or Star Wars fans get involved, the question now is will fandumb reign in their hotheads and make an honest vote, or will they burn the award a second time?

My guess is that the No Award slates will keep each other emotionally triggered for the next few months, making it impossible for the adults on the other side to reign in the man-children, woman-children, and it-children.

I read the weird idea that Bujold making the list is because of a trojan horse. Not at all. I made that decision after reading her story that I wanted her to win She is one of my favorite authors. Plus I liked the Cinder Spires so voted for that. So those 4000 members are not all SJW but maybe quiet puppies of either ilk
