Monster Hunter Nation

MHI logo AR rifles causes CHORF butt hurt!

Yesterday I posted a link about how I’ve teamed up with JP Enterprises to offer MHI and MCB logos on AR-15 and AR-10 lower receivers and complete rifles.  http://monsterhunternation.com/2015/11/30/jp-enterprises-is-now-offering-mhi-and-mcb-logo-ar-15-lower-receivers/

JP MHI

Then this morning I discovered that my offering custom rifles with my logos on them have caused outrage among the CHORFs at File 770. Apparently besides hating wrongfans having wrongfun, they also hate guns. This is my shocked face.

Because Glyer 50 Hugos’ 50 Hugo winning site gets a pathetic number of hits he is always desperate for some controversy, and it isn’t Sad Puppy season, so now he links to like every single one of my blog posts. It’s kind of pathetic and sad. Usually I just delete the track backs and ignore them, but today one of my fans copied over some of their outrage into the comments for our amusement.

They reminded me that the thing I miss the most about being a gun dealer was pissing off angsty, hand wringing, progs.

“tintinaus on December 1, 2015 at 12:19 am said:
Larry Correia offers you custom rifles.

For f*s sake! Tell me Larry, how many n*grs, Ayrabs, or school kids will your gun be able to take down before you need to reload?”

 

On the contrary, my tribe is the one who stops the school shooters, terrorists, and registered democrats off their meds. Considering a big chunk of my—admittedly less than 500 person—book signings is made up of vets and cops, and a giant percentage of my fans are permit holders, who’ve jumped through a bunch of hoops and background checks to stop that sort of thing, that’s offensively dumb. But to answer your question, technically thirty, only most of us train to do controlled pairs, so more like fifteen. But with the beveled mag well on these, speed reloads are a piece of cake!

 

“Shao Ping on December 1, 2015 at 12:35 am said:
This has probably been brought up before, but are there racist undertones to the Monster Hunter books? They sound like the sort of books Norman Spinrad parodied in The Iron Dream.”

 

No, quite the opposite actually, but don’t worry, it has been brought up many times. Because screeching racism at the slightest provocation without any evidence is sort of a stimulus/response kind of thing with you dimwits. In fact, the Guardian’s village idiot once crowd sourced a witch hunt to find anything in all of my many prolific writings that could be construed as racist or sexist, and the best thing they could come up with was my teaching armed self-defense to women so they could shoot rapists was “victim blaming”.

Don’t worry. I’m sure those ladies were just compensating for their tiny uteruses.

 

“Aaron on December 1, 2015 at 5:23 am said:
Is there actual evidence of something he’s written or said that is racist in content?

I can’t speak to the Monster Hunter books, but his Grimnoir books relied upon some pretty tired racist stereotypes.”

 

I would love to hear what those “tired racist stereotypes” were. It was probably how I didn’t sugar coat the 1930s so that Imperial Japan was totally cool to people and didn’t make Chinese ear piles. Or it might have been the part where I portrayed Jim Crow style segregation as a bad thing, and we know that modern SJWs are all about having their racially segregated “safe spaces”.

 

“Ed on December 1, 2015 at 5:33 am said:
In light of current events, I’d like to shove that custom rifle up Correia’s backside.”

 

Well, you could certainly try that, Anonymous Internet Pussy, but I’m the one with the guns. 🙂

However, these poignant, informed, heart-felt, articulate, well researched accusations have given me pause, challenged my world view, and forced me to ask myself some important moral questions, like…

Can someone ever truly own enough AR-15 lowers?

Obviously not.

Or…

Could I fit another gun safe in here?

Probably. But I’d have to move some furniture. Maybe I should just use my giant royalty checks I get for being a popular, commercially successful author, and buy an even more gigantic house in which to store my massive gun collection? (man, after all these years of being told how I’ve irreparably damaged my career for disagreeing with them, that just has to annoy the CHORFs)

The top 10 bestselling fantasy authors on Amazon for Black Friday weekend. Yep. Witness the inevitable career death that occurs when you upset TRUFAN.

The top 10 bestselling fantasy authors on Amazon for Black Friday weekend. Yep. Witness the inevitable career death that occurs when you upset TRUFAN.

Anyways, for those of us who understand personal responsibility and the founding principles of America, we known that firearms are a vital self-defense tool and are among the fundamental building blocks of liberty. Not to mention the part where they are awesome and we enjoy them.

Now we can buy more of them, only with super cool Monster Hunter logos on them!

And for the idiotic gun and fun hating denizens of Vile 770, you can kiss my unabashedly gun toting, flag waving, free speechifying ass, you wretched little shit stains.

Yep, I'm not wearing ears. .300 subsonic with can. This thing was ridiculously quiet.

Because the MCB logo is *awesome*, that’s why.
(What Would Agent Franks Do?)

Were-Puppy
Guest

He would shoot it until it ran out of bullets, then smash the face in of whoever was left alive with the butt of the rifle.

richard mcenroe

Hey, Agent Franks is so cool he got a dusty Colt Commando carbine to keep firing after thirty years without cleaning!

richard mcenroe

MHI in .556, MCB in .300 Blackout for discreetly handing inconvenient eyewitnesses.

Larry, you’re missing a marketing opportunity here. You should contact the Pow’rBall people if they’re still in biz or one of the boutique ammo manufacturers for a run of .556/.45ACP MHI Ammo with a faux-silver (stainless steel) subcaliber bearing swaged in the hollowpoint. That way folks who cannot afford another shooty thing can get in on the fun!

Russ Kinzig

I’d go for some real MHI ammo. That would be cool. In .45 caliber please.

Good luck with that. I know a number of Aussies that come to the States every year to compete in the Bianchi Cup. The process you guys have to go through to purchase any firearm is a travesty.

Canadians have it much better. Not as good as some places in the US (but still far better than certain others), but better than the Aussies for sure. Been in both those Commonwealth countries. Done that.

I wonder if these MHI/MCB guns are legal here in moose land (no full auto ever, limited magazine capacity).

Wait a minute here. If they really believe that the population of Americans with privilege (aka white men) are irredeemable racist & homophobes with genocidal desires, and that a majority of American Law Enforcement Officers are irredeemable racist & homophobes with genocidal desires, and a majority of American Servicemen are irredeemable racist & homophobes with genocidal desires- if they believe all that, why the hell are they pushing for Gun Control???
If anything, they should be encouraging minorities to buy guns and get training!

windsong
Guest

Because magic. Also, they aren’t strong on logical thinking. If the Patriarchy that’s hiding under everyone’s bed–when it isn’t skulking in closets–were truly as evil and vile and bloodthirsty as they say it is, there really wouldn’t be any minorities around to oppress.

I think if Larry posted a picture of him eating breakfast, they’d still find someway to twist it into racism claims.

Ha

As we saw in San Bernadino, the initial report of “white suspects” triggered the usual slew of “must be a white supremacist Rethuglican Nazi teabagger anti-abortion NRA supporter” from the media and the Left… and then they had to turn on a dime when the perps names (Syed Farook and Tashfeen Malik) came out (new story: normal workplace violence, nothing to see here, back to the important news on climate change).

Because only racists own guns, ya see.

Patrick

I’m a bit disappointed by File770’s decision to climb on the Crazy Train. I used to read it regularly and typically found it quite informative.

Then again, there’s that “used to” in there…Just noticed that. I honestly did not make a conscious decision to stop going there, I simply just found less and less compelling reason to go. Now I can’t remember the last time I visited.

Still kind of a pity, since if there’s another site that aggregates SF&F content the way it does — or used to do — I’m not aware of it.

Wombat-socho
Guest

I think if you stay out of the comments it’s actually not so bad.

Brad R. Torgersen

Glyer himself doesn’t go in for the slander and lies. It’s his groupies and hangers-on who have a permanent hate-boner for everything that Larry, myself, Sarah Hoyt, et al., do in public. If one of us so much as peeps from our blogs, Glyer will link it — knowing that les gerbiles will begin to squeak noisily down in his comments section.

Dr. Mauser

By letting his followers do all the screeching, he maintains deniability.

I just love the whole “anybody who believes in the Second Amendment must be a card-carrying KKK member, Nathan Bedford Forrest-loving, gay-bashing, woman-hating, Islamophobe troglodyte” thing. It’s so nuanced and balanced.

On a slightly different note, I’ve reluctantly come to the conclusion that anyone who disagrees with me on any subject matter must be a Stalinist Nazi pedophile. And racist; musn’t forget racist. So don’t disagree with me or you’ll suddenly turn into a racist Stalinist Nazi pedophile, and who wants that?

Tommytrauma

Simple people need the world to be simple. Doesn’t get much more simple than slavish adherence to dogma, or the belief that something’s either entirely good or entirely bad.

Oddly (or perhaps not so oddly), your conclusion comes a lot closer to accurate than theirs.

Just out of morbid curiosity, I’d like to see the blog post “in the raw”. I can’t find it on Glyer’s blog homepage. Can someone point me at it?

“Don’t worry. I’m sure those ladies were just compensating for their tiny uteruses.”

Sexist microaggression!

But seriously, it’s always hilarious to watch how feminists rage against firearms, one of the technologies that levels the playing field between men and women. But I guess that’s inevitable, with feminism being completely taken over by the far Left. They can’t support something that would help them because it’s not part of their ideology.

windsong
Guest

But if enough women actually did things to level the playing field, then they (the feminists) wouldn’t be able to claim victim status any longer. Kind of hard to scream oppression if a sizable number of your own kind are taking responsibility for their own safety and protection instead of scapegoating men.

Joe in PNG
Guest

In a strange way, the SJW’s have drifted full circle into being a white male power fantasy. Notice how the solution to all the world’s social ills involves giving power to white males? Think about it. Rape culture? The SJW solution is not empowering women to defend themselves, but instead hope that men can be taught not to rape- leaving the power in the hands of white men.

windsong
Guest

Yes. It kind of drives me crazy. The only thing that makes sense to me is that having power requires a person to take responsibility. And taking and accepting responsibility is so hard and frightening to these people that they’d rather huddle in the dark than risking the scrapes and bruises that comes from living. You can lead a dwarf to a feast . . .

You’ll also notice feminist cricket sounds surrounding the recent Holly Holm-Ronda Rousey MMA championship match which headlined UFC 193, including a championship undercard between two women. Record crowd, record pay-for-view. According to lesbian emancipation theory the patriarchy wouldn’t even have 2 women’s weight divisions let alone have Rousey as the biggest star mainstream crossover attraction in MMA history.

richard mcenroe

That fight was a disappointment. No hair-pulling to speak of.

Lots of left hooks by Rousey and straight southpaw leads by Holm. Knocked Rousey out with a kick to the head.

Actually, I’ve come to read it more often in the last year. It collects all kinds of stuff that I wouldn’t otherwise know about, like Kaley Cuoco’s PSA about Slave Leia costumes. Why is it a problem that Glyer links to the announcement about offering the logo rifles? I’m not going to blame Glyer for having nitwit commenters. Glyer himself does seem to oscillate between covering Larry as straight news and inserting snide commentary into everything. He can’t quite seem to decide if he’s a newspaper or something else, but I suppose he’s not doing worse than TV news coverage… Read more »
Joe Vasicek

That’s not a high bar to clear, though.

Josh

As stated above, what is wrong with it is that he is doing it to get his comments section to slander Larry for him.

I hope he keeps doing it, because I feel sure it will backfire. Not everyone who navigates to that site is a CHORF even if most are.

Shadowdancer
Guest

Some people look at the site for things the regular slanderers DON’T like as a recommendation.

Khazlek
Guest

I don’t know that we know why he does it. This sounds almost to me like an argument that Glyer should police his comments section which doesn’t seem consistent with the scorn we have been heaping on other SF bloggers for the way they curate their comments.

WyrdBard
Guest

The issue is he does police his comments section. And opposing views are deleted, while the rabid gerbils are allowed to do as they please.

James May
Guest

If he policed his comments section he wouldn’t have one.

Feminism in SFF consists of mentally ill and fanatical serial liars. There is nothing behind any of their stupid myths. There is no racist man-hating bigot they don’t call a social justice leader and support, there is no piece of shit conformist SFF trash literature filled with their lucky leprechaun PoC and lesbians they don’t promote and throw to each other like valuable jewels. There is no innocent demographic of ethnic European men they don’t see as a woman-hating KKK.

Kip Drordy (aka: Aaron) has had a hate-boner for Larry, for years. Sad Puppies has merely taken Kip’s hate-boner from a one-and-a-half-incher to a two-and-a-half-incher. It doesn’t matter what any of us write, Kip’s going to find a way to cram all of our books into his narrative. And because Kip doesn’t get out much — homebody government apparatchik — he’s not exposed enough to people who disagree with him. In true gerbil fashion, Kip interprets all difference of opinion as oppression. To include “oppressive” prose by bestselling authors who love guns, and aren’t affraid to show it.

“The same FDR who interred Germans, Japanese, and Italians during World War II?”

To be fair, anyone FDR had interred was probably dead. 😉

It’s also quite common for a belligerent state to intern citizens of nations with which that state is at war. It was FDR’s internment of US citizens of Japanese ancestry that went well beyond the pale.

That’s because their commitment is to faux academic lesbian political social theory.

That’s the first thought that occurred to me. The other thing is this cult generally asserts the “ideology” of heterosexuality arose simultaneously on all five continents among cultures that didn’t even know the existence of one another. Somehow they all established a taboo against incest in order to facilitate arranged marriages. Nothing these people say makes any sense, and yet they pass it off as biology and history. People like Michel Foulcault, Judith Butler and Jacques Derrida have been roundly condemned by some academics for their lack of intellectual and academic rigor, which is just a way of saying they… Read more »

Some languages, such as Portuguese, have no neuter gender linguistically. So every noun is either masculine or feminine, no matter what it is. A book is masculine, a magazine is feminine, history is feminine, and so is math, science, engineering, and technology. Revolvers and rifles are masculine, but pistols and shotguns are are feminine.

So, what does this mean? People have no issues separating biological sex and grammatical gender. Grammatical gender is just a syntactic factoid, and reality is still reality. Of course none of those things are actually masculine or feminine. Absolutely zero Portuguese speakers have problems with this idea.

If pistols are feminine howcum I have problems when I limpwrist my .40? And does mean that I have to ask permission every step of the way when I clean its breech?

James, I frequently appreciate your giant collection of quotes you’ve gathered from a variety of dranged bloggers over the years, but your “all evil springs from John Scalzi” theory mystifies me.

I don’t think James May thinks this nonsense originated with Scalzi; rather, his theory is that Scalzi is responsible for bringing this nonsense into the mainstream SF/F and giving it respectability. Which is a debatable notion, mind you, but he has been one of the biggest cheerleaders for the movement in the SF/F community.

As best as I can recall, James holds with the ‘not true leftism’ ‘in sff around twenty years’ ‘mainstreamed around ten years’ model. Scalzi is credible as a cheerleader for mainstreaming, as Hayden is for background influence.

James May
Guest
That is exactly my theory. Scalzi’s terms as SFWA president exactly coincide with the rise of this cult in SFF. Scalzi’s own site is the highest profile personal blog in SFF and the SFWA the most credible and most high-profile org. Scalzi’s own rise coincides with his opportunistically never saying “no” to this cult, and that is the secret of his success as a “writer.” Let’s be honest about the quality of Scalzi’s work: take out the feminist rhetoric he’s pushed and he’s just another nobody from nowhere pushing SFF no one really cares about.

It doesn’t need to mystify you. Scalzi is the one who provided a two part guest post on his site by the gay feminist Mary Ann Mohanraj about white privilege in 2009. That’s when all this Third Wave Feminist bullshit was just entering SFF. Mohanraj is the one who created the webzine centered on intersectional lesbian SFF which exists to this day: the racist Strange Horizons. Scalzi sold his first story there and it is the model for others which followed, such as the racist segregationist rags Lightspeed and Uncanny. 3 years later Scalzi published his own white privilege piece… Read more »

Third Wave Feminism was 100% created by lesbians and its most fundamental concept is its opposition to heterosexuality. Next on the list is its opposition to men, “whiteness” and the West. They believe “reproductive heterosexuality” is a “fiction” (Judith Butler) created to oppress women who in their natural state would produce far more bi-sexuals and lesbians. They believe the only way to combat this “compulsory heterosexuality” (Adrienne Rich, Butler) imposed by the fake “performed” (Anita Sarkeesian) masculinity of the Patriachy is through “genderblindness,” mostly through the use of language such as pronouns.

Speaking as your friendly neighbourhood bleating-heart liberal, I find the SJW’s objection ridiculous. What is it that they are objecting to ? If it’s guns in general, then why do they care what logo goes on them ? If it’s the logo specifically, then it’s still stupid; if I bought a gun, then it’s my gun, I can decorate it however I want. I do support gun control, but this isn’t gun control, it’s just hysteria.

No, there is a newer one that might’ve gotten missed.

Private ownership of nuclear weapons.

Leftist opponents of this might be considered hypocritical, because of their support for ending counter proliferation and anti-proliferation. It has only been fairly recently that their willful and knowing sabotage of counter-proliferation matured to the point of being even more obvious.

I suppose I’m a leftist of some sort or another, and I’m against private ownership of nuclear weapons — aren’t most people ?

BobtheRegisterredFool

The stronger argument is that Obama’s Iran policy is a repudiation of traditional counter proliferation thinking, and was foreseeable as such in 2008.

The weaker argument is that opposing Bush while supporting Obama’s foreign policy can only be explained by a preference for more chemical weapons being used rather than less.

This is the condensed version, I can expand. Another weakness is that it makes assumptions about how you voted, and what your foreign policy politics are.

@BobtheRegisterredFool: OIC, I can understand the argument better now that you’ve expanded on it a little.

I can point to myself for that prediction in 2008. Hence it is easy, natural, and wrong for me to expect it to have been as obvious to others. Chemical weapons were deployed during WWI. Everybody had huge stocks of chemical weapons during WWII, but they were not used. I credit this to everyone knowing that use would be met with use, and that reprisal would make any advantage temporary. After WWII, we had so much chemical weapons that we still haven’t disposed of all of them. Germs are messy, and we didn’t want to use them. Chemicals are tricky,… Read more »
