Darkstream: ComicsGate is Hitler

From the transcript of the Darkstream:

So what did we learn today? I don't know about you, but I was,  of course, horrified to read the Washington Post and be informed that not only is ComicsGate Hitler, but that Ethan Van Sciver is also Hitler, and that Diversity & Comics is also Hitler too. Now, I have to admit that there is a certain amount of, I guess since we're on the Germanic theme, schadenfreude, to be had in watching how this is playing out from the outside. The thing that the virtue signalers and ComicsGatekeepers simply refuse to understand is that there is nothing - nothing - you can do to defend yourself against a rhetorical attack by SJWs.

You can virtue signal all you like, you can run around talking about how you are a diverse movement and that you that you hate hate hate the Alt-Right, that you disavow, disapprove, and anathematize people like myself and so forth, but it won't do you a damned bit of good. So yeah, my first thought when I was reading that was, "hey, don't come talking to me about this, you know, Two-Face van Sciver owns the trademark!" I'm actually waiting for the first accusations that my contacts at the Washington Post set that whole thing up, that this is somehow my fault. I deny that! I absolutely deny that I arranged that hit piece!

I'm not going to pretend that I don't find it funny. I find it more than a little bit amusing, though not quite hysterical just because I understand that the very ComicsGatekeepers who were trying to brigade this particular stream are probably genuinely astounded, and genuinely dismayed, at these attacks from the mainstream media. And what you have to understand is that they're not going to stop, they're not going to listen to you. They're not going to give you a fair shake, they're not going to allow you to defend yourself in any way, shape, or form, and they're going to lie. So you're going to see more articles like this. You know, we saw this with GamerGate. A lot of you guys don't know about the history of the Sad Puppies and the Rabid Puppies,  but you really need to learn it because you guys are in the position of the Sad Puppies. The Sad Puppies were completely obliterated and that's the fate that is in store for you if you follow your instincts.

Needless to say, the ComicsGatekeepers didn't listen to me and continued to engage in some very public acts of virtue-signaling. A reader writes about D&C's foolish decision to metaphorically tattoo "kick me" on his forehead:
I have to admit, even knowing better, to being highly disappointed in D&C's latest futile attempt at virtue-signalling.  He's running another limited Indiegogo campaign as a "charity event" at premium prices, with at least US$10,000 to a charity that he spent several days researching and selecting.

Did he, a US veteran knowing full well how many veterans are in dire straits and in need of help, select Disabled American Veterans or another veterans' charity.  He did not. He chose The Trevor Project, an LGBTQIA+ charity. Seriously. Semper Fi is out; "please accept me, SJWs" is in.

The ComicsGatekeepers are cuckservatives through and through, and are unable and unwilling to conserve a damned thing. Just as you've said.
Once you indicate that you are willing to submit to the SJW Narrative, SJWs will never leave you alone until you submit to them entirely. The virtue-signaling tells them that you're weak and that they only have to increase the pressure until you can't take it anymore and give in to their demands. That's one of the reasons they seldom even bother with me anymore. They know that not only will I never accept their idiot Narrative or submit to them, but the VFM and I will go after them harder and faster and from more directions than they even knew were vulnerable.

Preferably by suicide, with you completely broke, as well as completely broken, in every single possible manner known to humankind.
They want your entire world burned to the ground and the Earth salted.
And, if it comes to the point that years down the road they become freshly infuriated when they think of you, they'll dig up your moldering, rotting corpse, just so they can have the pleasure of re-burying the body all over again.

Oh good God. How pathetic is this? Next he'll be bending over on stage to PROVE that he's not a nazi.

I hereby submit that the list of approved derogatory nicknames for EVS be extended to include Ethan van Suckflops.

I listen to a handful of streamers who talk games and movies. These guys were basically apolitical a few months ago, your typical kinda nerdy, libertarian-minded genre fans. At least one voted for Bernie. But they had the gall to honestly criticize some movies beloved by SJWs, like Black Panther and The Last Jedi, which got them called Alt-Right Nazis and demonetized. At first they protested, now they're starting to agree and amplify. The other day, they were talking about an SJW streamer who attacked them, and one of the guys pointed out that if that SJW had the Infinity Gauntlet, "There would be no Republicans. He would snap his fingers and wipe out everyone he thinks is bad." It's just dawning on them that SJWs, unlike themselves, don't want to debate the other side, they just want to eliminate it.

I am listening to the beginning of that. Doug explained that bad people are bad people ... not races and next he says (at 29:47 through 34:00) apologizing to SJWs is the right thing to do if you are wrong. He got 95% voted down on that idea. I think he is the next guy to get the boot, after Jon Del Arroz, judging from the comments section too. Is he being too cuckservative for comicsgatekeepers?

Isn't it great to see the lights come on when reality intrudes too far to be ignored?

Blogger Ned September 14, 2018 9:26 AM  

They know Vox literally wrote the book on this. So they'll likely do the opposite and crash hard.

Blogger S1AL September 14, 2018 9:45 AM  

The last 10 years have convinced me that Pinochet's greatest error was not getting rid of more Communists.

If there's going to be a revolution, right wing junta for the win.

Peter Grant is right - the potential for even a soft civil war is terrible, but bowing down to the false god of leftism is far worse in the long run. Trying to play nice, trying to appease, doesn't work. It's both cowardly and ineffective, and that's no way to live life.

On a related note, Eastern Europe is the future:

Blogger paranoid September 14, 2018 9:59 AM  

Nope. Eastern Europe is not future. This "Based Eastern Europe" meme must die. It will spare many big disappointment.

I keep posting updates on this story to KotakuInAction and they are so cucked!

They really don't know Vox wrote the book, however, some of the more intelligent are starting to pay attention to what Vox is trying to tell them. They realize that Comicsgate originally meant something before it became, as Vox says, the personal fan club for 2VS.

No, that's what the cucks do, and it doesn't work. They will never leave you alone until they fear you.

@14 reading comprehension fail. Try again.

Blogger DonReynolds September 14, 2018 11:09 AM  

The Leftist SJWs are much like pirates. They produce nothing of value, they only steal and murder and torture people who do. It was never decided what was the best way to protect traders from being abused and looted by pirates. Sometimes they armed merchant ships, so they might have a chance to resist pirate attack. Sometimes, they thought speed was more important. Sometimes they thought there was safety in numbers and formed convoys of merchant ships or even had armed escorts. But in the end, what worked was to seek out and destroy the pirates by the navies of the world. Hunt them down, wherever they go, and sink them in deep water...hang their leaders and leave the pirate crew to drown in the sea. Piracy had to be stopped by force of arms, allowing them no sanctuary port or refuge on land and no mercy. Send them to hell, where they richly belong.

@15, even if you join them, the point-and-shriek mob will turn on you the moment you stop clapping.

Blogger Tars Tarkas September 14, 2018 11:33 AM  

Doubling down is the only acceptable response to an SJW attack. Now they want to fund the attacks on them by giving to an LGBTQP.... "charity?" This is taking cuckoldry to a whole new level.
Centrists are complicit!

I looked up the placing of Ms Marvel. It is only Issue 1 that is stuck at the top of the category; the following 3 volumes don't even place in mystery and suspense. However, their overall Amazon rankings and rankings in Books > Graphic Novels > Superheroes are telling.

In Superheroes:
Vol 1: #5
Vol 2: #55
Vol 3: #3671
Vol 4: #3942

Paid in Kindle Store:

Vol 1: 1036
Vol 2: 16304
Vol 3: 252284
Vol 4: 265973

Conclusion: Whether through manipulation or heavy, heavy advertising, Volume 1 sells well - but most do not stick around for volume 2, and almost nobody bothers to pick up Vols 3 and 4.

Blogger InformationMerchant September 14, 2018 2:37 PM  

Don't forget #1 in Superhero is Captain Marvel (the next film, the post credits scene of the last film and apparently going to be in the next Avengers movie).

Ms Marvel is her Muslim reboot (#5).

#2 is Deadpool (his second movie came out fairly recently and his first movie did very well).

#3 is Avengers vs Thanos.

#4 is Black Panther.

This theme basically continues until #13 (Avalon #2).

Comics Gate titles will follow the same pattern to some degree
-- Premium price for top art/writing, printing, + autograph will fly for these 1st editions. There should be a precipitous tailing off in the absence of properly retail priced issues. There has to be risk mitigation with lower priced options, as with current Ravage: Kill All Men (actually using a fullfillment service), Berserkonaut, Brand, and previously Star Dust. The 'feature film in-theatre' analogy 2VS holds to doesn't have the turnaround time to capitalize on the hype of these crowd funds, none of them seem to. "I'm still waiting on Jawbreakers, I may just as well have gone to a brick & mortar LCS the release day rather than pony up that far in advance--" 'Collectors' feel compulsion that 'readers' simply do not have. There is a mountainous top shelf back catalogue of material in omnibus editions that readers may as well be stocking up on instead -- plenty of people can and will wait for a trade paperback collected edition for the best price point. You lose all revenue from newsprints, single editions, et. al. that you do not offer at a competitive, non-premium signed, gold foil cover, ect. ect. price.
