Larry Correia banned from Origins

This is almost unbelievable. SJWs are running completely amok.


It just goes to show that they will come for you eventually, no matter how minor your offenses against the Narrative may be.

Larry Correia responds:
So I'm no longer the writer guest of honor at origins. My invitation has been revoked. It was the usual nonsense. Right after I was announced as a guest some people started throwing a temper tantrum about my alleged racist/sexist/homophobic/whatever (of course, with zero proof or actual examples), and the guy in charge (John Ward) immediately folded. He didn't even talk to me first. He just accepted the slander and gave me the boot in an email that talked about how "inclusive" they are. I actually heard about it on facebook before I even saw the email.

Oh well.

They did this to John Ringo at ConCarolinas a little while ago, and took a lesson from it. This is just another new way for bullies to target people who disagree with them. Throw a fit, make up some accusations, and cry about how you feel unsafe. Now that they know it works, it is just another tool in their tool box.

For the record, I'm not any of the things they accuse me of. Despite writing a whole bunch of books, and a ton of political articles, and all of my many personal interactions with fans (I've done up to 15 cons and events in one year), none of these people can ever find any actual examples of me being sexist, racist, or homophobic (and the Guardian looked hard and still came up with nothing).

That's because in reality, I'm a libertarian who does not give a shit who you are, or what you do, and it is none of my business, as long as you stay off my lawn. :)

This time they kept calling me a "rape apologist". They dug up that classic that John Scalzi created about me several years ago. It's total nonsense. I spent many years teaching self defense to women, and I'm all in favor of every rape attempt ending with the rapist receiving a couple hollow points to the chest. But that just goes to show the power of lies, rumor, and narrative.

So years later, complete strangers come out of the woodwork to talk about how evil I am. Yeah... That does get tiresome. It is wearying.

I'm really sorry for any fans who were planning on seeing me at Origins. Hopefully I'll get to meet you at some other event.

For me personally, meh. I go to enough events. I'll just do something else fun that weekend.

The saddest person in all of this is my son, who was my plus one. He was looking forward to playing a bunch of games, and then we were going to go to the zoo on Sunday. (they have manatees there!).
One gets the impression that Larry is simply too worn out with the Culture War to feel like fighting the SJWs anymore. And, let's face it, like John Ringo, he is too independently successful for their antics to do him any real harm. For now, anyhow.

"Enemy of my enemy" makes for weak alliances. For example, although TERFs are somewhat allies against tranny tyranny -- at least they're serious about keeping men out of girls' locker rooms, which is more than we can say about cuckservatives -- they aren't even allies against social bullying over gender pronouns; indeed, radfems pioneered it.

One way to tell the difference is if they talk more about how to fix feminism than crush it. That's dissident left, not right.

You will likely not see me here very often, since my political views are a bit different than most other people's, here or elsewhere, but there is a useful point to be made. There are other Guests of Honor. Someone who knows them should politely tell the other guests of honor, who may not appreciate being dragged into politics, what is going on. It's a matter of common courtesy. If Mr. Correia was not apprised in advance, the other guests may well also not have been apprised in advance. This means one or two people who know them, not hundreds of them.

OT: There's a pitbull thing going on in the Culture War right now, with the left of course in Breed Denial mode. It has confirmed two weaknesses I've previously noticed before in the Enemy

1). They have too many "if I admit this seemingly trivial thing, my entire worldview will collapse."

Can't say pitbulls are naturally more dangerous than other breeds, because in their minds that would be tantamount to admitting blacks are more violent than other races or Jews are more intelligent than other peoples. Which according to the tenets of Holocaustianity means we'll have to get the gas chambers ready.

2). If we were smart, we could lure the left into nearly any trap we want simply by taking up the opposite position.

Okay, not ANY trap. But a lot more traps than the timid right shall ever know.

Imagine defending child-maulings on the grounds that pitbull owners are entirely to blame. Then remember the type of people who stereotypically own pitbulls.

The most amazing part to me is that this Ward guy did not even do any checking. He just took some allegations and decided that the mere word of a couple of nobodies was enough to do a character assassination on a famous writer.

This is why you can never assume it is "over" or things are settled with an SJW. Unless the SJW has a come to Jesus moment where they publicly declare all of their wrong doing and repentance, and then follow up with actions for years. Even then, keep a wary eye on them for signs they are reverting. SJWs will never let a sleeping dog lie. They are petty and they will unexpectedly lash out at you years and decades after the original conflict.

It was pretty awesome). Sorry to hear they got converged - I love RPGs also, but the rot obviously started there.

Political Correctness is anti-thetical to military wargaming.

For example in the Kursk scenario you mentioned above.
SOMEBODY has to be on the Nazi Side
and SOMEBODY has to be on the Commie Side

and NOBODY gets to be on the freedom-loving side.

Political Correctness would eliminate over 90% of wargaming.

"Sorry to hear they got converged - I love RPGs also, but the rot obviously started there."

I've always held the RPG'ers to be responsible for a LOT of stuff. Fantasy trumping reality has becoming endemic throughout the society.

1 -- they lead children from studying history (wargaming) into moronic fantasy (RPG-ing)

3. This leads directly to Millenial Generation being experts on Pokemon, but still can't figure out that Communism has a record of 150-ish failures and 0 successes

Also in the last couple of weeks, my place of work (large corporation) put VD on the naughty forbidden website list.
