SJW Cannibal Feeding Frenzy

Personally, I love when SJWs begin to eat each other.

So this article has been making the rounds, and I’ve repeatedly been asked to comment on it.

http://laurajmixon.com/2014/11/a-report-on-damage-done-by-one-individual-under-several-names/

Apparently a member of the literati SJW army—and super prestigious Campbell nominee for BEST NEW WRITER—has turned out to be a huge internet troll, with a bunch of aliases, attacking and tormenting people. Of course, those of you who read this blog or followed Sad Puppies are like, duh… They attack and torment Larry, and anybody who agrees with him nonstop, but no my friends… Benjanun Sriduangkaew did the unthinkable and used their regular SJW tactics of threats, insults, intimidation, and career sabotage against fellow SJWs, and that is super badthink!

Now, when you threaten, intimidate, troll, and try to sabotage the career of anybody who disagrees with the Social Justice narrative, then that is doubleplus good! Try not to get confused.

I tried to read that article linked above, but the first page is caveats and trigger warnings and excuses and namby-pamby blah blah blah to ensure that nobody of any protected groups gets their feelings hurt. She could have just copy and pasted ONE OF US! ONE OF US! a couple hundred times and saved some space. Yes, author, the audience is now aware of your proper goodthink credentials. Get to the point.

But by the time she got to a paragraph of hand wringing about Ferguson—where her total ignorance of the facts of the case make me really glad we have a functioning justice system that requires things like jury trials and evidence—I’ll admit that I gave up and started to skim.

Basically, this “up and coming writer” who was nominated for a prestigious writing award for having one pro sale short story and being a Thai Lesbian (which is totally worth like ten books of actual writing) treated fellow SJWs the way that SJWs treat all of us, and that is the worst thing ever. And now she should be shunned by all the other proper good thinkers for hate speech crimes and unsafe feels. She will now be banned from Wiscon’s Racially Segregated Safe Zones and I’m sure people will threaten not to attend WorldCon because she might call them fat.

A note on being an “up and coming writer”, as far as I know this woman had a handful of short stories, only one of which would have counted as a professional sale, and a blog where she wrote about Social Justice crap, and that was enough to get her nominated for the Campbell Award for Best New Author. It doesn’t look like this nominee for Best New Writer has published much since.

Meanwhile, when I got nominated for the same Campbell award a few years before I was “controversial”, “threatening”, and “a right wing hate monger”, who “made them feel unsafe” and if I won it would “end literature forever.” But then again, I had only published two really successful novels and several short stories at the time, and since gone on to publish ten more novels, a few dozen short stories, and some novellas… Only, we all know as a libertarian minded Republican I can never be a *real* writer.

Yet, when I say that the Hugo awards are biased in favor of the liberal cause of the day, I’m the controversial one. Go figure.

So anyways, UP AND COMING WRITER and SUPER PRESTIGIOUS AWARD NOMINEE turns out to be an anonymous troll douchebag on the internet. Whoop.

The fun part of this for me is watching all of the politically correct writers freaking out this week about how her behavior is totally unacceptable. How career sabotage, fake reviews, slander, libel, trolling, doxxing, and threats are the worst things ever… Yet, I wonder… Where were all these people when it was me getting attacked?

Oh, that’s right. I’m on the other team, so anything goes against non-SJWs.

When writers say something that doesn’t fit the SJW narrative, we know to expect their trolling, attacks, death threats, and calls for boycott from the caring SJWs. We expect to see our names dragged through the mud, with unsubstantiated cries of racist, sexist, homophobic, misogynist, hater applied. Showing up in major newspapers with fabricated quotes attributed to us? No big deal. We expect to be labeled as “rape apologists” to tens of thousands of complete strangers.

But that’s totally cool. Lies and slander are perfectly fine when directed at right wingers. The same people condemning Sriduangkaew’s behavior manage to overlook or even laugh along with the exact same behavior when directed against people who aren’t part of their little incestuous tribe.

If you follow history you know that leftist movements always end up with leftists eating each other. This article was just Trotsky getting the ice axe to the head.

The SJWs are perfectly aware of their hypocrisy. They talk about how Sriduangkaew was praised for “punching up”, meaning that it was okay for her to use these tactics against non-members. Threaten somebody of the correct sex and race, cool. Threaten somebody of the wrong sex and race, bad. If you have a brain, you will find that sexist or racist, but you are not thinking like a proper SJW. Anything they say isn’t sexist or racist, but anything we do is. Simple.

If you really want to see just how stupid people can get, read the comments, where SJWs argue about “privilege”, where a bunch of white, liberal suburbanites excuse attacks on people who disagree with them, because they probably possess some nebulous concept of privilege. Like me for example, I grew up with Portuguese Dairy Farmer Privilege, where all that back breaking manual labor, knee deep in cow shit, at 3:00 in the morning, in order to scrape by in near poverty all those years, somehow turned me white and made it so that it was okay for SJWs to lie about me.

Behold! The face of privilege!  (yes, this person has Holsteins. The truly disadvantaged would be forced to milk Jerseys)

Behold! The face of privilege! (yes, this person has Holsteins. The truly disadvantaged would be forced to milk Jerseys)

Privilege sounds awesome. You guys should totally get some of it.

This article is hilarious. They actually break her trolling down with graphs! GRAPHS! Yes, they literally analyze Sriduangkaew’s obnoxious behavior based upon the race and sex of who she attacked. Because they are equal opportunity assholes!

A reasonable person would say, hey, maybe you should just not troll and slander anybody, but reasonable people only say that because of privilege (and sanity). A proper Social Justice Warrior knows that since they’re full of shit, all they’ve got is dirty tricks and outrage in their toolbox, so they can’t give that stuff up. That would force them to debate with logic and facts! And everybody knows logic and facts are privileged cisgendered colonial patriarchy!

This is one reason I’ve been enjoying the hell out of GamerGate. First, it has been awesome having a great big group of people witness the same bullshit that my industry has been dealing with for years. Second, SF/F people tend to be squishy and polite, with a handful of outspoken outliers like me and the rest of the Evil League of Evil, so SJWs have run roughshod over my industry… But gamers? Holy shit. You really think you can pick a fight with people whose brains are programmed to win? Gamers will outlast, outthink, and outfight the SJWs. Tell a Gamer that there is loot or XP in it, and he’ll grind SJWs to the grave.

So enjoy this SJW cannibal feeding frenzy, sane people, because tomorrow they will be back to telling you that you are enjoying yourself wrong.

Here’s what I love about this whole rising pushback: every time we put up one of the enormous number of SJW quotes, and the sick quotes of their heroes – namely gender feminists – they lose sales. On the other hand, SJWs have very few quotes and people to work with. They rely on smearing the Golden Age, smearing Heinlein and Asimov, lying about SFF authors, lying about history, and pretty much everything. SJWs have no racist institutionalized voices to push back against and concentrate on multiplying two or three people into an army and otherwise lying. SJWs look at… Read more »

That’s it in a very elegant nutshell Jordan. In fact it’s amazing how well you summed up what is a very complex mechanism and history. Quotes speak volumes, and it’s simply a matter of connecting the dots. Those dots run in a direct line back to radical lesbian gender theory of the late ’60s. The newest wrinkle is the intersectional part, which throws in race, colonialism, etc. I believe a lot of these folks, especially the men, don’t even know where this all comes from. That’s the point. The point is how this insanity has been mainstreamed and normalized. When… Read more »

http://tlknighton.com/?p=6796

I agree with you about the Ferguson stuff, which annoyed the hell out of me, but mostly I focused on how they’ve been doing this stuff to us for years, but the difference is that if someone like this Requires Hate tries it on us, we yawn and move on.

After all, when you’ve been called every “-ist” name in the book enough times, it just loses it’s sting.

Look at it from their POV. They’ve accepted the whole insane, Byzantine rules about who can insult who and what words they may use and who is on the crap-list for having violated these rules. They’ve taken it seriously, internalized it. In some, really disgusting cases, they’ve made personal life decisions — begun or broken off love affairs or friendships — to better conform to the rules. Their reward was that they got a special “victim” status which they could parlay into literary success — maybe not in terms of high sales, but in terms of access to like-minded publishers… Read more »

Check Jim Hines new post about this, and a reminder of how an entire cult of people have lost the ability to reason. Basically RH’s violently racist rhetoric disappears in a puff of smoke, while just being a random white person replaces its status. Stirling is a more open in the comments than he could be on Mixon’s Church of Safety First, White Men Last.

I’m sorry. 2) They still having people posting, OUT LOUD, that if only the troll had kept to attacking those with “privilege” it would have been okay. 3) Mixon won’t let you call the troll, who drove someone to try suicide “evil” because….

I call it the current approved line of thinking. As a SJW of good standing, you do NOT think, you follow the current approved line of thinking. Should you deviate from the current approved line of thinking, you are hereby declared heretic and excommunicated from the realm of Social Justice Warrior and persona non-grata. The problem with SJW’s thinking is that it’s inevitable the current approved line of thinking will contradict last week’s approved line of thinking, and you now have to either denounced last week’s approved line of thinking and all of those that still embraced it, or exercise… Read more »

The SJW’s have it better than Communists in a real dictatorship in that nobody’s going to kill them for deviating from the Party Line. They have it worse in that there is no coherent Party hierarchy, so they are left to figure out the Party Line as best they can from the signals of the whole group, instead of reading it in the Party papers or hearing it in broadcasts.

Mr. May:

What they are is indoctrinated. This is what many of our schools have become. Nothing more than centers of left-think indoctrination.

The scumbags that started this crap in the ’60s and ’70s warned us all that they were gonna do a Long March through our schools and institutions. We didn’t believe them. They did it. Now, in may areas, they own the children through the entire education process.

I don’t know if you caught this but they still don’t actually know who this person is. Some are stating with certainty Benjanun Sriduangkaew is an alias.

The kicker is that some of the anti-GG voices have stated, for public consumption, that they have had to pack up and leave their houses due to threats. No sane person says that for all the world to see — what you do is call the cops and the FBI and let them know that someone’s making threats on your life, THEN bug out. You’re damned right it’s an appeal to sympathy.

Before GamerGate, I was only dimly aware of what was happening to comic books and completely unaware of it happening in SFF. As an avid SFF fan I was saddened to hear of it, and I hope that one day SFF can be freed of this nonsense as well.

It seems to me SJWs have taken to picking on nerds in general in hope of winning some easy victories against people who don’t thrive in confrontations. Truly we cannot catch a break.

You should see if there’s a LUG in your area (Lego Users Group). I belong to WAMALUG (Washington Metropolitan Area). I’m also active with BrickFair, which is a four-location (currently, anyway) East Coast franchise of Lego conventions.

And if you go on Bricklink, you ought to be able to find a few dinosaur Lego parts for reasonable prices. They’re out of print now, so “reasonable” might be a relative term, but you ought to be able to come up with something.

I believe there are at least four established LUGs in Australia, and I think two separate conventions and who knows how many enthusiast groups that aren’t actually LUGs (it’s an official designation, and even though the requirements aren’t strenuous they’re still something not everyone meets).

It’s an exhibition of power: “You have to stick to PC-ness, but I can break with the approved narrative if I feel like it.” It’s also supposed to hearten the enemies of the person getting the truthful talking-to, and thus make them liked a little by onlookers such as you. “You and I both know this, and so you’re better than the rest of the twits who don’t know; but I’m the one who came out and said it, so I’m better and you should support me.”

Here’s some funny backstory: I used to read RH in real-time. I couldn’t believe the pass she was getting or get over seeing SJWs like Liz Bourke, Alex MacFarlane, Shaun Duke, Jonathan McCalmont, Aliette de Bodard and others making sympathetic remarks in the comments sections of posts that were over-the-top Stormfront. In response, I wrote a bunch of wacky, insulting and vulgar underground comix-like stuff about the SJWs themselves, minus the racial and sexual group defamation, and with SJW racist quotes backing up what I said. I knew what the response would be. Without listing all the quotes in response… Read more »

This is a byproduct of being aligned with the dominant view of popular culture. Everyone they know thinks like them, as do the people in the media they consume. The vitriol isn’t directed toward them, and having not experienced it or seen it directed to their friends, they are disproportionately impacted. Without ever being challenged, much less attacked, they have no callouses or emotional endurance. This is often compounded in writing communities, which are frequently very very soft. There’s probably a sense of betrayal as well. She was supposed to be one of them, and she did the bad thing.… Read more »

“Privilege sounds awesome. You guys should totally get some of it.” I was brought up to believe that every privilege carries with it corresponding and countervailing responsibility. If one neglects the responsibility, one’s title to the privilege becomes invalid. All right then, if as a White man I have Privilege, what are the corresponding responsibilities? Too, if one enacts those responsibilities, wherein is the criticism of the corresponding privilege valid?

what are the corresponding responsibilities? Simple answer: guilt. You must let the privilege-guilt flow through you. You must come to the understanding that everthing you can do, everything you have, everything you achieved and will achieve is only because of privilege. As the proud owner of all the possible privileges out there (except thin-privilege, but am working on that) I am slowly coming to the realisation that 1) I was pretty lucky with my starting position in Life, and 2) I will never feel guilty for achieving something by using that privilege.

There was no encouragement for block-voting. There were people posting their slates, and no requirement to copy them. I certainly didn’t copy Larry’s slate, because I didn’t know what all the books were about.
