Cuckservative racists

Why do cuckservatives who reflexively cringe in fear and wet themselves every time a man demands they call him a woman, and angrily denounce even the softest criticism of a Black as racist, a Jew as anti-semitic, and a woman as sexist somehow believe it is perfectly acceptable to mock and deny the ethnic heritage of American Indians?

This behavior is really reprehensible on the part of Capn Cuckings, who is projecting as shamelessly as any SJW ever has.
Fraek
Vox is an American Indian. I'm sure he will be amused to learn that Capn Cummings thinks he is a white nationalist.

Capn Cummings
Yeah, he's 12% Cherokee
You know, we really don't need proposed allies like these. No one does. First, that one comment would be enough to get him fired from Marvel or DC, or Short Fuse, for that matter, and I am reliably informed that there is No Place for such Behavior in the Comics Industry. Second, I am not Cherokee. Third, I am unquestionably an American Indian by both DNA and genealogy, as everyone who has ever met my family or even seen pictures of it can confirm. Have you ever noticed that absolutely none of my friends, family, or acquaintances have ever surfaced to contest anything I have ever said on the subject? Fourth, African-Americans are not pure Black and Ashkenazim are not pure Jews, so does he similarly deny their ethnic identities? And fifth, in what organization is this "Capn" a captain, the race police?

We live in a very strange time when we are supposed to unquestionably accept that a man is a woman just because he wears a skirt, a human female is a Yellow-Scaled Wingless Dragonkin just because she says so, two men, three women, or six goldfish are "married" just because five justices say so, but nevertheless feel free to insist that a mixed-race American Indian is not an Indian at all even when all the genetic science, legal precedents and genealogical documents support the assertion.

But it is more than reprehensible, it is downright tragic to see Americans mock mixed-race American Indians and deny the existence of their Indian heritage when their own country has been under mass invasion by the Third World for more than 50 years and is already not much more than half-white. Note that just three generations will be sufficient for Capn Cuckings's great-grandchildren to be as little "white" as he claims that I am "Cherokee".

There's clearly some space for 12% Cherokee memes. Or 1:12 scale models, though photoshops of Vox with a headdress would be funny.

On topic though, we see people trumpet 1% African lineage from tests that are known to be wildly inaccurate for percentages below about 5-10%. The "cap"'s position is not even slightly defensible.

Blogger Akulkis January 18, 2018 4:44 AM  

No headdress. Every feather in a headdress is earned through an act of physical bravery. It would be like wearing a chest full of medals and other military decorations which one has not earned. It would make Vox an immediate target of non-refutable mockery.

The left doesn't believe in the concept of StolenValor, but will eagerly pretend to if they can use it against someone.

One of the interviewers in the Med School at the Univ.of Fla. admissions process gave my son a huge ration of sh-t because he acknowledged his Carribbean afro ancestry (that the admission form specifically asked about). It certainly is not my son's fault that his phenotype expresses my almost pure German ancestry and his mother's partial Scottish, English, and Swedish ancestry rather than her afro part. I guess that UF, "if it walks like a duck...." but then his hair does get a little curly when it's damp, and he was the fastest runner on his socker team. Progressive racial preferences are very confusing, aren't they?

Blogger Dire Badger January 18, 2018 5:36 AM  

Now here's a serious question... wouldn't 'true americans' be the ones that couldn't give a crap about their actual percentages?

I mean, I am something like a quarter Scots/Irish, a quarter English, and the rest is a combination of generations of mixing... everything from escaped slaves to chinese, French trappers, German jews, to Chocktaw, Cherokee and Mohawk. And my particular weird admixture is something like the norm from West Virginia down to Northern Alabama.

No one really knows all the genetic pinpoints for the Appalachians, but we are goddamned Americans, and us 'coal miner descendants' have a very distinctive 'look'.

It's possible that the greater Indian DNA in us exacerbated some of the more negative Celtic traits. The five civilized tribes seem to have similar personalities to Celts. This is speculation really, though.
Being 1/8 Choctaw affects your life in a lot of ways. The fatalism, extreme passivity, and other traits likely come from the Choctaw, in whom those traits are extreme. A general hatred of medicine and doctors may also come from that culture, and the particular form of Pentecostal religion (Signs Following, in other words "snake handling") likely comes from serpent worship, which was common among all the five civilized tribes, if I'm not mistaken.

Many more whites have been influenced by Indian cultures than is acknowledged. Maybe that's why leftists and cucks feel so comfortable demeaning Indians; whites readily mixed with Indians more than they did with blacks; they claimed their half Indian children as theirs, instead of casting them off to the other race.
Indians are sometimes even admired by southern whites and not numerous enough to be used to bash whites frequently. They really are only ever brought up when an anti-immigration argument is made. That or a black nationalist is trying to deflect from a call for his return to Africa. They are largely ignored by socialists even though a lot of Indian communities could actually benefit from aid, and maybe even use it to end extreme poverty, as did those tribes who used state and federal funding to break into the gaming industry.

"Passivity" in this context meaning a general resignation to fate and totally reactive mentality, not the absence of belligerence. There's way too much belligerence in Appalachia.

The Major European powers rolled over nearly all of the World, as no one really put up much of a fight, if they weren't already a great power. Historically speaking, from the 1500s on, it's been pretty much a "joke" to conquer populations if a Western Power decided to.

Not so with the Indians. 300+ years of brutal, bloody, savage warfare over the entire continent. "Respect the Skills".

There's also the issue that the tribes living in the USA & Canada were fairer-skinned than the southern ones, so half-European/half-Indian children tended to be quite fair-skinned themselves. This allowed many mix-children to pass as Europeans without issue.

The modern day cuck. What makes this creature tick? We all know what a cuck is, of course, but personally I've never given them much thought. I mean, I recognize them. I loathe them, but I've always accepted that they do what they do simply to virtue signal. The more I consider it, the more I wonder if that's not an overly simple answer.

I suspect it's worth considering these personalities more deeply. Know your enemy. I heard a wise fellow said that once upon a time.

We all let society do a little bit of our thinking for us. Things we take for granted. Accepting that some pieces of art are "great" even if we can't put our finger on why. I figure the cuckservative takes that a bit further, being more inclined to take shortcuts to thinking.

I imagine there are a couple of types of cuckservatives. Maybe more.

There's the true cuck who thinks deep down that the left has the moral high ground. This cuck is presented with everyday stimulus that reinforces that idea. Movies, television, comments, hr departments. The true cuck is a shallow thinker. He hasn't fallen completely for the insane narrative that drives the SJW, but dog gone it, he knows slavery is bad. He's trying to balance himself in the middle. He doesn't want to be an idiot, but he also doesn't want to be a monster.

Then there's the pragmatic cuck. This one is convinced that the world's going to be fine. Ho-hum, another social upheaval that has to be weathered. Bunker down, ride the middle line and exist until the history books decide who won. He's not full SJW, so he can deny being in a camp with those freaks, but he's also quick to attack the "alt right" so he's not forced into that camp either. It's all a win/win for the pragmatic cuck, at least in theory.

I suppose a third type occurs to me. The thirsty cuck. All those women. They look so good, and he wants them. He's not prepared to go full SJW, no. He plays it a little cooler than that. "I'm a fiscal conservative," he says, but that's where his spine breaks. "But I'm not a homophobe racist or nothing. I mean, heck, a woman's body is a woman's body, and I sure do know how to compromise. We should hang out sometime."

I definitely haven't given cucks enough thought. I'll have to consider them more fully.

I found out this last year that I have a Chickasaw ancestor from South Carolina. I was not aware of any American Indian ancestry in my family so this was a bit of a surprise. It's only a tiny smidgen compared with my European ancestry but I am certain there are probably a lot of other Americans who have American Indian in their background who do not know it.

By the way, I don't think you're serious about this question, but the answer is because no one takes this racial identity stuff seriously. It's a plot for power. The enemy is anyone who challenges the narrative. Challenging the narrative is challenging and denying the power.

Capn Cummings is currently serving his country on deployment. He is anything but a cuck. Long before comics were even discussed on this blog Capn Cummings put up a YT channel and began blasting Marvel before the term Comicgate came into being. He clawed his way up and got kicked off Twitter more times than Vox and Milo combined. He also aided several comic critic channels on YT and created the army of support that currently has Marvel rattled.

As for your Indian heritage Vox, you aren't Rez. You can whine about it to the white boys but in the end you are hanging out with them and not with your tribe. Your DNA credentials don't mean squat to the tribe or to the liberals because even if you had proof they would say that you aren't "authentic Indian", so the only people you might impress are cuckservatives who have white shame. Some are probably virtue signaling by flapping and typing crazily their RIGHT-eous narrative to hide their stink. You might be an Indian but no one cares. Pardon me if I roll my eyes if Capn Cummings hurt your feelings on that.

Scriver was trying to tell you that your marketing plan was crap. He is right. You should be reaching out to YT channels like Capn Cummings, Doug Earnst, Diversity and Comics, Weaponized Nerd Rage, NERGISH, and others. These people speak to the audience that still thirsts for good stories that Marvel used to create. Marvel alienated that audience but they didn't kill them off to wishing they could read good comics. This is your freaking gold mine! Instead you go the Milkshake, Breevort, Mark Waid style of marketing and it fell flat too. Take a page out of Cernovich for once and go to these anti Marvel channels and see if any of the Alt titles appeal to them. Give them a free sample. Talk to them like you do with Scriver or Molyneaux and you will bring customers in droves. I am like many comic readers that I know who used to read Marvel. I don't trust the brand anymore and I'm almost poisoned to it. When these guys say that something is a good comic I buy it because they often have the same tastes as my comic reading friends.

I would like to appeal to you Vox to quit defecating in your own rice bowl. You have such contempt for the comic reading audience that I'm beginning to doubt that you will ever grow an audience past your initial 2K people who donated to Alt Hero. You read hard sci-fi while comicbook fans read space opera. You read Tolkein while your comicbook fans read Conan. You don't understand short episodic stories and that is why you had 3 pages of story in your 24 page comic book snorefest. You didn't have a strange and colorful alien world you had a plain industrial age buildings coated in a red that could have been in any other city. The only thing interesting sci-fi was the alien who spoke jibberish like a Lucas Ewok. That alien was such a let down. I wanted to see an alien like something out of Niven or Traveler. The art is okay. The art reminds me of Jack Kirby but it needs to have more action and sound effects in it. As that vehicle was zooming around what looked like the same city street you made that world to be the most boring in the universe. That vehicle could have shown through pictures even with the plain everyday buildings that the setting was on a different world and not at all like earth. You blew it. Comic readers will need to have someone speak up for the series to give it a second chance and to point out good things. Capn Cummings would be a good candidate for that. If it meets his mark then it would meet your target audience. I can tell you that I don't like to be talked down to or the way you sneer at comic book readers. You sound like a Tor editor when you do that. I am a fan of your Vox but comics is a different theater of the culture war and Capn Cummings is on our side.

I know the latter is common on many reservations. I wonder if that's our culture affecting them, their culture having shaped us in the past, or just similarities in economic conditions causing that. Sucks especially as two or three year olds end up killed. It's the Appalachian version of a five year old shot in a drive by in Chicago. Horrible stuff.

The ones I know (a good number) habe respect for traditional rituals, but they are all Christians. That probably causes contempt from the left.

Listen, if Capn-your-Capn is calling Vox a white nationalist then something's wrong with him. He's feeding into a dangerous narrative that exists to wrestle political power into the hands of the left. And by the left, I ultimately mean the socialists, and by the socialists, I ultimately mean the tyrants.

I'm sure Capn's done all sorts of good, so bravo and claps and huzzah, but that's no excuse to lash out about white nationalism. Vox is right. It's not worth having allies who can't delineate between SJW propaganda and reality.

Regarding all the nail-biting criticism, personally I think it's odd how many crystal balls are predicting failure. That said, it's hard to condemn feedback, and I hope Vox and company find some value in what you're saying.

Myself, I'm waiting to see, and I have a good feeling about it. The only thing that concerns me is Diamond. How to get around Diamond? I don't know the answer to that, but I'd love to find out such a thing is possible.

Homosexual
Pedophile
Mentally defective/unstable

Serving in the military means basically nothing in and of itself. All it means is that you were relatively healthy, and weren't so outright rebellious or so overtly habitually criminal as to have been ejected by that point.

There are plenty of total cucks in the military. Is it mostly cucks? I don't think so, but it's nothing remotely like a cuck-filter. As some actual military people would say, "it's not a filter, it's a pump".

Your syllogism fails. There are loads of cucks in the US military. He's still a cuck and a racist. Appeals to soldier boy don't move me. Remember, I personally kicked the ass of one of the serving Joint Chiefs of Staff, fair and square, hand-to-hand.

As for your Indian heritage Vox, you aren't Rez.

So what? Are blacks who don't live in Africa Not-Blacks? Are Jews who don't live in Israel Not-Jews? Your babbling is totally incoherent.

You might be an Indian but no one cares. Pardon me if I roll my eyes if Capn Cummings hurt your feelings on that.

If people didn't care, they wouldn't try to deny it. My feelings aren't hurt. I'm just pointing out that Captain Cuckings is undeniably a racist. Shall we report his anti-Indian racism to the U.S. military? I understand they view such things in a rather dim light these days.

Scriver was trying to tell you that your marketing plan was crap. He is right. You should be reaching out to YT channels like Capn Cummings, Doug Earnst, Diversity and Comics, Weaponized Nerd Rage, NERGISH, and others.

Ethan van Scriver is a talented artist. And after decades in comics, he doesn't know as much about distributing, producing, or marketing them as I have learned in four months. He was so ill-informed that he didn't even know that I didn't write or draw the comic he was criticizing, or know that it had nothing to do with Alt-Hero.

I will not reach out to any of those YT channels that have leaped to attack us in complete ignorance. They are not on our side and they have nothing to offer us. We will continue to ignore them as we grow, just as we ignore the SJW-converged comics media. We don't need them any more than we need Bleeding Cool, ICV2, or the comics media. And they are far more easily replaced than Diamond or Marvel.

You have such contempt for the comic reading audience that I'm beginning to doubt that you will ever grow an audience past your initial 2K people who donated to Alt Hero.

Doubt all you like. You'll see that you're wrong soon enough.

I can tell you that I don't like to be talked down to or the way you sneer at comic book readers. You sound like a Tor editor when you do that.

It's amusing that you think I care. If you don't say stupid things and take stupid and indefensible positions, then you won't be talked down to. And you are wrong, again. I don't sound anything like a Tor editor. I didn't call you a Nazi, I didn't say that there is no place in the industry for you, I'm not trying to sabotage your livelihood or your career, I'm just correctly pointing out that you have no idea what we're doing, no understanding of how the industry is in the process of changing dramatically, no clue about how things are about to change when the current retail channel collapses, and therefore your advice and your opinions are totally irrelevant to us.

Really?
What country is that? How do you define it? What does it stand for?
Who is he fighting, or ready to fight, for that matter? Why is he fighting, or prepared to fight them? Are his countrymen asking him to do that?

Capn Cuckings is observably not very smart, and willfully ignorant. To say his commentary is inane, would be flattering.
His attitude and approach are based in ideological fantasies, and do nothing but ensure the eventual defeat of not only himself, but any he manages to drag along.
He plants a fence deeply between his buttcheeks, while proclaiming "all sides are bad", and tries to pass that for wisdom.
When it comes down to it, he is an SJW enabler, providing a token resistance that manages to take back an inch, after losing a mile.
If not for the fact that I don't believe him to be dishonest, he is the definition of a Cuckservative.

True, there are things I think Vox could arguably do better, when it comes to his delve into comics; But siding with backstabbing Cucks, is not one of them.

Now imagine that rebel flag in a comic store in the middle of north east liberal land and the comic store owner trying to sell it. Put the cover of Quantum Mortis next to a sea of covers that splash a comic stand. What about it stands out that makes you want to buy it? I read it and I wasn't going to read more until Vox said that it is based on Traveller.

It's "petticoat" actually.

Someone can be earnest in their beliefs and still be a cuck. Just because you believe something and hew to some set of principles, it doesn't mean you're right. Dude is observably a cuck. That's just the way it is. If he wants to not be a cuck, he can change his ways.

As far as the flag issue, I grew up in western NY and that's where I live now. The only people who get the vapors over the rebel flag here are virtue signaling twats. I see rebel flag bumper stickers occasionally and I've seen quite a few rebel flags flying from porches in the Southern Tier (that's the southern part of western NY) and north central PA too. Usually along with a Gadsden flag.

Blogger VD January 18, 2018 8:38 AM

Then why do you think they are representative of the entire potential comics-buying market? Marvel can keep the Northeast. I think we can live on catering to one entire region of the country; I'd certainly be delighted with one-fourth of the market. That would make us #3 in the industry.

Put the cover of Quantum Mortis next to a sea of covers that splash a comic stand. What about it stands out that makes you want to buy it?

Who gives a damn? Do you not grasp that we are only figuring out the systems now? Forget comics, I'm not even seeking to increase the Infogalactic traffic until DONTPANIC is ready. I wouldn't have cared if we only sold 10 copies of QM-AMD #1; anything over that was just bonus and morale-boosting.

I'm not Rez either. I can pass for white European. I can also walk onto any Rez and everyone thinks I'm their cousin. Funny, that: It happens on Anishinabe, Lakota, Navajo and Pueblo reservations, and none of them look like the others.

And how people look: The Anishinabe, for example. They did a lot of intermarriage with French fur trappers, and other Euros. One uncle of mine through marriage has 17 kids. They range in looks from pure bog Irish to full blood Shinoob. But the thing is, they all ACT like Anishinabe.

Here's the deal: Sure, if you were a comic fan, you knew who Stan Lee was. He stuck his name on the cover, after all. But did you buy a title because his name was on it? Not more than a couple of times. And in the same vein, there are lots of folks out there who will reject anything from Castalia just because of the association with Vox. But there isn't that many of them, and if Castalia's rep for great comics grows, they will be buying, even if they pretend they aren't.

The LEFT as you talk about it, are a joke. They are pawns and less than pawns, just low paid cannon fodder. The Globalist/Left and Globalist/GOPe are not, and Rush should know because he is a Globalist, yet smarter than most, and in a position were he can hide it well. I also think that he is sick of some of Globalism and it's sicker, weirder aspects. The candidate Rush would have wanted to win was Lyin' Ted, and next was Foam Party Rubio, so...?

My question to you would be, how did all the money become available for all these pawns to constantly riot, and the money never seemed to dry up? Hint: It did not come from Soros, as his money never decreased.

There are huge Globalist networks for everything: Transfers of money to various operations, a group to decide who becomes the CEOs and other top people in all important corporations, reinsurance groups who make money big time from "tragedies," Networks and companies in place that controls whole counties -- Tata controls most of India for example (and they are Globalist). Most of the important Churches, infiltrated by SJWs, were targeted for efficiency of convergence. I am not anti-Catholic, but does anyone think it is coincidence that the Jesuits control the Vatican today?

When you past the ground stooges, there are some heavy hitters -- 70% of USA congress and senate deserves to go to jail, and some deserve far worse. In the UK those numbers would be north of 70% for office holders.

Most of those Antifa and BLM would not bother to come out at all without pay. The money needs to dry up by destroying money laundering channels.

VD: ". . .he doesn't know as much about distributing, producing, or marketing them . . ."

Long before the comics industry was SJW converged it was otaku converged. And not just comics otaku, but superhero otaku.

I watch all the Usual YT Suspects, plus a few of the unusual ones, yet I would never have known that Marvel has published Jane Austen comics if I hadn't been looking for a review on a particular Agatha Christie novel and run across a teenage girl in Britain who is into the whole retro-culture thing, who doesn't give a shit about comics in and of themselves.

Why I didn't I hear about them from the people who spend their time criticising Marvel for going full SJW?

Because they live in their own little superhero otaku bubble.

I stopped reading superhero comics shortly after I figured out how they worked as a Pavlovian bell to get me to salivate money. I kept reading Classic Comics when I chanced to come across them as a kind of review for the source material.

And the first comic I'm likely to take my own time and money to acquire in decades is an Arkhaven title. A title that I would have bought if it had been put out by Marvel, IF . . .

The comic book nerds let me know it even existed.

In that respect Vox is already outmarketing the industry and bringing former comic book readers back into play.

As for the left (really, evil in general), there are different layers.

The anarchists/antifa/BlackLivesSplatter/BLTBBQ/college kids/desiccated catladies are useful imbeciles to the last trans-bestial soulqueer gender-unitarian thing. Really? They're spiritually hamstrung cripple-victims with a potentially mortal habit of chomping at the hand that heals when it tries to apply disinfectant. Hurts less to keep licking those wounds in between generous helping of their actual predators' bullshit.

Another half step still, you've got the banksters/Gyorgy/neo-Babs/etc. Satan is involved somewhere, because far too many of these families have been around, stable, invariant, and successful for far too long for any sort of purely human planning to reasonably be responsible. They know exactly what they're doing, but they're simultaneously so bought-into the plan that they're spiritually incapable of seeing that while they may be flush to the gills with hidden long-knives to defend against each other, Lucifer is standing right behind them all with a meat thermometer and an industrial infra-red smile.

Gen. Kong.....Yes, the Cherokees owned some Negro slaves and a Federal judge has decided that made the Negroes into Cherokees. But for some reason it stops there. Nearly ALL of the Negro slaves were owned by whites, so does the judge's ruling mean that the rest of the Negroes are white? Perhaps the judge skipped over the 13th and 14th amendments to the Constitution. Owning slaves did not make them family members, which is what the tribe is all about.

Everything Vox does has to be viewed through the right lens. He doesn't give a fiddler's fart about audience experience. He cares about his own worldview and making it look attractive and relevant to others in as many forms as are available to him. Nothing unusual about that, writers do it all the time. Vox just doesn't have the capacity to turn shades of gray into white. His products can't take his audience out of the drab gray landscape of their conception.

Some people would rather serve on their knees than fight back on their feet.

You have to understand that the people going after Vox are far more threatened by Arkhaven than the SJWs in mainstream comics are. The SJWs are locusts eating Marvel and DC's seed corn until they graduate to the next big target. They don't care about comics or their position within comics.

The guys coming after Vox are basically the GOP of the comics world - loyal and dutiful opposition who make a name for themselves fighting to lose. They have attracted fanbases by promising to fight for the fans, but they never push quite hard enough to have an effect lest they find themselves locked out of the extant publishing industry. They are the Bob Dole's and Mitt Romney's of comics.

When an outfit like Arkhaven comes along with winning strategy designed to have an effect, it doesn't draw eyeballs and interest away from the SJWs - it draws attention away from the Comics GOP. The fans who have been completely unrepresented for so long flocked to the half-a-loaf Loyal Opposition because there was no real alternative outside of leaving the hobby altogether. Given a choice between guys who want to nibble around the edges and an SDL that wants to dynamite the industry and build a black fortress of entertainment out of the rubble, they'll ditch the guys begging for scraps from the Old Order and get with the guys preparing a lavish feast of a New Order.

Of course the Loyal Opposition is going come after Vox with both barrels, Vox is a significantly greater threat to their position than the SJWs.

@Gordon Scott I agree, the Rez isn't that great. I've lived on one too and I was glad to get out. When we played cowboys and Indians after school I was the resident white boy. Every dirt clod fight felt like the Battle of the Little Big Horn and that is probably why I feel a bond with Custer. As for people not buying the brand because Vox Day is associated with it, that might be true. I bought it because Vox was the writer. That kind of thing is hit and miss but still my question was--what makes that cover stand out?
@TS--" Vox wouldn't be Vox if he grew up on the rez." I disagree. Perhaps I think more highly of Vox than you. I think he would thrive anywhere because that is who he is. He'd probably run his own casino. We will never know. Whether or not he is an "authentic" Indian...who cares?
@VD--I would love to see an adaptation of Peter Grant's westerns, or BV Larson's Swarm series, or a comic adaptation of There Will Be War. Seriously---bring it! The best we get from military sci-fi in comics is Darth Vadar. As for your recon on the market and figuring out what works and what doesn't---I'm saying that Chuck Dixon is taking great pains to flesh out Avalon and I can't wait to see it in pictures. I'm saying that (and I've only started reading Throne of Bones) that you can world build in novels but you do this visually with comics.

Snidely, agreed, though it’s interesting that you mention Jennifer Ehle when all I remember is Colin Firth. Six hours run time was about right to cover P&P. No two hour adaptation can do it justices when compared.

@Starboard:

Ah, well. Ye olde "On the Internet nobody knows you're a dog" thing strikes again.

That's OK. I've never been a middle aged mom, but I used to have one back in the day. Got nothing against 'em, at least in principle.

Cheers back at ya.

What do you call it when a discount outlet buys up 19 truckloads of DC Comics "Graphic Novels"?
Remainders.

@roughcoat--Ok, you say he is a cuck. I don't think he is. You aren't defining what makes him one so....

Seriously? Go to Amazon and search Vox Day Cuckservative. There is an entire book written to describe these people.

@Were-Puppy I've read the book. I don't think Capn Cummings meets the criteria of a cuck. Just because he disagrees with Vox does not make him a cuck. It just makes him unpopular on this blog. Roughcoat did not specify what specifically makes him a cuck. Keep in mind that I watch Capn Cumming's channel quite a bit. He is very consistent and I've never seen him back down from an SJW nor have I seen him compromise his views to get along. He is just telling Vox that he doesn't care for the cover and that he doesn't believe that being the polar opposite of an SJW will change comics. I think the Capn is wrong. I think it will open a market to a previously closed off section of comic readers. I think that beyond that pool of readers is a larger pool of readers who aren't invested in left or right politics and just want good stories. I think many of the You Tube channels would be a great voice to reach that population---if he finds an Arkhaven title that he likes. If he does he won't give a rip if it is written by Vox Day. He'll call it like he sees it. I'm not joking when I say that I have bought and avoided several titles just on his recommendation. Once he burned an America Chavez book and the SJWs at Marvel went nuts. It was hilarious. I can appreciate that you and others don't like him and call him a cuck. In this case, I disagree.

"Of course the Loyal Opposition is going come after Vox with both barrels, Vox is a significantly greater threat to their position than the SJWs.""

What did you think they meant when they said "Carpe diem"? Another good reason why he's not in the USA.

It would be hilarious if VD was so successful that he becomes able to take over the NYT.

He's not interested in the truth. That's all I need to know.

Rush "got" Trump, and he understood Trump's appeal to the party base. And explained it day in and day out throughout the primaries. GOP-villains didn't like the message, and tried to gin up a Kasich nominee.

In the early 90's and even 89 and 88, Limbaugh was practically a Jonh Bitch acolyte. Then he had a meeting with Gingrich, and things changed, although it wasn't apparent at first. Limbaugh could be the leading #Pizzagate proponent for meming the normies -- he used to swim in the same waters as/pol/.

Can confirm. And what unit. I've never been infantry by MOS, but there's a hell of a lot of difference between being a single-phase radio operator in an infantry company, and a single channel radio operator in a dock operations company or anything else found in a service support battalion. Fuelers? Not so much different at all.

Superheros comics...then romance comics.... You know what this means.

Next step after that is a revival of the next genre Tales to Drive You Mad ==> Mad Magazine.

It would be nice to see cultural satire that wasn't knee deep in toilet humor like what Mad turned into sometime in the 70's.

Such a shame. In the 50's and 60's, it was a fantastic product.

Capn Cuck, is that you?

Blogger VD January 19, 2018 2:43 AM  

He is just telling Vox that he doesn't care for the cover and that he doesn't believe that being the polar opposite of an SJW will change comics.

He has also lied repeatedly about me, my beliefs, and my actions. You should not forget that. Since SJWs have changed comics, there is no logical reason to believe that being their polar opposite will not do so as well.

Blogger Wild Ape January 19, 2018 6:04 PM  

@VD---I don't think he treated you fairly in that first video. I hope you noted that the tone in the second was better. I am a Patreon of Capn Cummings and I talk to him and I have defended you and Castilia House (not that you need defending or asked for it). I did that because when Alt Hero was in its infant stages I knew that the YT channels are already a powerful force and will advance Arkhaven---when the stories are good---these guys will be cheering you. That was why I was delighted to see that you called for people to be patient with people who didn't step in and start singing praises. Comic readers have a paradigm of what the see a comic is and is not. QM is a longer story than what a 24 page comic can produce. They expect faster pacing is all, but everyone agrees that there is a story there. I can see a lot of these guys, Capn Cummings included, making that turn.

I remember when you could find only a handful of military sci-fi. Most of it that could get past the gatekeepers was crap, and don't get me started about sword and sorcery. Tor ruined Conan. How the hell could they ruin Conan??? But they did. So when I stumbled upon you at Blackgate it led me to find a bunch of top shelf military sci-fi books. And if you even remember even talking to me there at the time I was new to the Hugo thing and the gamergate culture. You had to explain to me what a Xanatos Gambit was. I became a Sad Puppy and after they fizzled I jumped on to the Rabid Puppies. I was slow to catch on, hell, I was no doubt a cuck. I changed. SJWAL opened my eyes. I come to this blog quite a bit and I don't say much because I don't have much to add to the conversation. I do know some things about comics. Comics were the bait that got me to read. Then came the books and I've bounced back and forth between them ever since. Having a publishing house that has both books and comics is brilliant. You took it one notch more and you are working on distribution which for the moment is the lifeblood of the comic shops. I wish you could tell us more about that. And I've followed you enough to know that you don't go the traditional routes. Capn Cummings, Scriver, and myself see things along those lines. I didn't think of distribution or targeting an entirely different audience. I guarantee that you only hit the tip of the iceberg for finding comic readers who want you to succeed. They are starving for a reason to come back to comics. There is a reason why Dixon is fleshing out Avalon. He knows the audience and he knows what they need to see. I've yet to read a mediocre Castilia House book, they all have been good. Law Dog would be a terrible comic I think but a fantastic TV series. You need to know that I'm not the only one who is talking to Capn Cummings and laying out where he was wrong. I think it had an impact on his second video.

Also, you should check out Jawbreakers. It is a damn good story that doesn't stand a chance in hell of ever being published. Diversity and Comics writes it. He should submit it to Arkhaven. It would be a good fit in this place that likes military sci-fi and history. It would be better than GI Joe and that was a big comic hit back in the 90s.

I hear you. I remember you and I know who you are. I don't have any problem with you or the opinions you are expressing. But you know me well enough to know that I place a very high value on loyalty, both personal and team.

I don't trust any of these YouTubers and I don't regard any of them as allies. None of them has shown much in the way of judgment, research, or frankly, anything but a desire to seek attention by being the best fence-sitter.

I'm not inclined to hold it against them - they're not SJWs after all - but neither am I inclined to pay any attention to them either. Why should I? I know what the standard line is and what the standard assumptions are; it's hardly rocket science. And if we were going to do things the way they recommend, there wouldn't be any point in doing it at all.
