Surviving the cultural war

Everyday Joe interviews Pax Dickinson, whose job was one of the early casualties of a confirmed SJW attack in technology.
EJ: Was it hard for you to re-enter business after what happened?

Dickinson: I eventually managed to find work at below-market rates through friends and former co-workers, after promising to conceal my identity. I knew I wanted to launch another startup though, and the resultant notoriety from the blacklisting ended up putting me in contact with Chuck Johnson and he had this great idea for a journalism crowdfunding site, I couldn’t possibly turn down that kind of adventure.

Ultimately being blacklisted and fired is the best thing that ever happened to me, due to the high-profile nature I was able to use it somewhat to my advantage. I’ve met so many amazing people because of what happened to me and while it did close a lot of doors for me, it opened some others and the ones it opened are far more interesting anyway.

I think it’s important for me to keep my profile high and make sure everyone sees a guy who has been put through that social justice shaming ordeal come out the other side of it unbowed and refusing to slink away in disgrace. They’ve taken their shot at me and I’m still standing, and now they’re out of ammo and all it accomplished was pissing me off.

EJ: Any advice for surviving an attack like you suffered?

Dickinson: Vox Day’s book SJWs Always Lie is essential and he gets it right. Never apologize. I eventually let myself get talked into giving an apology of sorts, it was a mistake. I shouldn’t have bothered.

I think now that it’s been publicized, there are people who want to help. I’ve talked to a few people who have been fired for their opinions and given them advice. I think those of us who have lost our jobs due to this kind of censorship need to stand together and support each other whenever possible.

The only thing you can ultimately do is try to engineer a career for yourself that is as anti-fragile as possible. People like Mike Cernovich and Vox Day are leading the way and WeSearchr is an attempt to follow in that vein. When we get attacked by social justice warriors it only makes us stronger.

EJ: What’s your opinion of Donald Trump’s presidential run? Do you think he’ll make a difference in fighting Political Correctness in America?

Dickinson: I think Trump is great, and it has nothing to do with his policies. He represents the regular guy standing up and telling the PC gang that we’re not gonna take it anymore.

Win or lose, he’s setting an example to the men of America how to respond to bullshit shaming tactics. The guy is an inspiration, frankly. I hope to see some other billionaires following the example that Trump and Thiel are setting. I get the sense that a lot of the Silicon Valley top CEOs are quietly sympathetic and I hope they find their balls and start pushing back as well before it’s too late. Trump is doing even more important work as a national life coach right now than he would probably be able to do as President.
WeSearchr is very interesting and might have some serious potential in light of the way the culture war is developing. I'm still trying to get my head around the most effective way to make use of it.

For those who don't know him he's been an important voice on the altright for a while. When he was still using the @jokeocracy handle -- which I assume is before he was doxxed - he consistently put up some of the funniest, most cutting tweets I've seen. He softened his tone a bit when he first started using @paxdickinson, but now he's right back to it. His TL is pure gold.

"Dickinson: I think Trump is great, and it has nothing to do with his policies. He represents the regular guy standing up and telling the PC gang that we’re not gonna take it anymore."

This.

A thousand times THIS.

This is Trump's appeal. The wall... immigration... all of that stuff is great... but what got him to where he is... is staring down the PC police.

Trump in interview (on why he wouldn't fire Lewandowski):

"I don't want to be politically correct. I want to be correct."

Perfect.

Wait Vox, have you THOROUGHLY VETTED this guys' tweet history /sarc

Win or lose, he’s setting an example to the men of America how to respond to bullshit shaming tactics.

Yep.

Vox has already shut down the "wars in the name of religion" and he's in the process of shutting down the groveling apologies for wrongthink.

Trump did something very interesting recently. I think it escaped everyone's notice. He went after a Hispanic judge for bias.

A lot of the PC is being shoved through by them. These judges think they are untouchable. They're not.

He should go after the black sow judge that ruled illegals can vote in Kansas

Trump: Some tremendous energy shown there on the bench. Maybe a good person, but definitely a bad judge. We should look into impeachment proceedings. Have you been affected by illegals in Kansas? Out in front of my campaign, we want to hear from you.

The fact we need to do this? Sad!

@2 Good to see Pax agrees with me about Milo's just reward:

"The Duckopoulos @jokeocracy
dear @Nero president trump commutes your death sentence to life imprisonment in the blackest cellblock in alabama, you're welcome"

Exactly! He may be a very mediocre president, but I will vote for him because he showed the regular guy that you can stand up to the PC and not lose.

Although, we do gotta give a lot of props to some of the greatest friends of the alt-right: Zoey Quinn and Anita Sarkeesian.

Just like we couldn't have won WW2 without the help of methed-up Hitler getting in the way of his competent generals, we could not have gotten the Trump train rolling without the vital ass-hattery of these two unsung heros.

We will have a two minute silence and all men will be requested to take off their hats in respect for their achievements before we light their pyres after Trump wins.

Donald Trump is indeed an inspiration.

Dreaming of a Trump presidency...

Would love to see Trump nominate T.J.Rodgers of Cypress Semiconductor as Sec of Energy so he can shut it down after properly disposing of its assets. Also, make Burt Rutan Nasa chief. We'll be on Mars before President Trump's second inauguration!

Anonymous Icicle May 29, 2016 3:02 PM  

Make Mars Great Again.

In other words, fuck you Matt Damon.

Anonymous Icicle May 29, 2016 3:16 PM  

I want to see the Frog Trump driving the train across the Martian surface, with a Martian lander in the background and red dust blowing.

Can't Stump the Trump. Even in Martian gravity!

When Pax refers to Charles Johnson, I assume he means someone OTHER than the guy from Little Green Footballs? Because that would be just a LITTLE weird.

Anonymous Basin Boys May 29, 2016 9:12 PM  

my objective is the preservation of Western civilization

Which is to say: "Anti-Jew" on the whole.

Absolutely.

This is one of the best threads I've read in a long time. I can imagine Milo going "please don't throw me into that Briar Patch B'rer Fox!!!"

Let's be nice and ensure all the inmates are clean of STDs first.

He is referring to Charles C. Johnson, proprietor of Gotnews.com. (And no, in spite of the initials, that's not me.)
