If you are short on time, you can skip all the background stuff I wrote and read this link from John Ringo instead. It’s the important part.
Now for background. Recently, bestselling author John Ringo was scheduled to be a guest at ConCarolinas, but had to drop out after his presence upset a social justice lynch mob.
Of course, nobody had any actual first hand reasons why Ringo made them “unsafe”. It was all the typical lies, temper tantrums, and bullshit. People who actually know John from cons either A. Have no problem with the guy. or B. at worst think he talks too much on panels (that’s what moderators are for).
But SJWs don’t need proof. They just need to declare something makes them feel unsafe, and thus is super bad, and has to go or else. They’ve got emotion and outrage. So they pitched a big bitch fest. It was all the usual accusatory stuff, misogynistic, homophobic, racist etc. (and their examples? Nothing from real life, just a couple of his FICTIONAL characters bad behavior from among the thousands of fictional characters he’s written).
As S.M. Stirling said: “There is a technical term for someone who confuses the opinions of a character in a book with those of the author. That term is idiot.”
Ringo bailed out rather than put up with their dramatic nonsense. The ConCom handled the announcement in the worst way possible, trying to make the perpetually offended crowd happy (that never works). So they lost a big draw popular bestseller with 7 million books in print to try and appease about two dozen random assholes nobody has ever heard of.
Get Woke, Go Broke.
But that’s not what this post is about. It’s about the disgusting cesspit of File 770. Because whenever SJWs beclown themselves by making up crazy accusations, they can never admit they’re wrong, instead they double down. And true to form, they did the same thing reporting about Ringo.
This is my personal opinion on File 770, and it’s dishonest, disingenuous, scumbag operator, China Mike Glyer: https://monsterhunternation.com/2017/06/13/a-monster-hunter-nation-opinion-piece-mike-glyer-is-a-scumbag/
Part of Glyer’s shtick is while he pretends to be an honest reporter, he lets his crackpot denizens lie their asses off, while deleting comments from people who disagree with his established narrative. So his horde of psychos gather together, make shit up, opposing views (or people who were actually there) get deleted, so that the insidious narrative can go forth, to fuck over that author for the rest of his career. But don’t worry, he only does this to authors who don’t toe the right political line.
After the ConCarolina’s thing, the lies there were so egregious that John Ringo actually lawyered up, and his guy gave them a cease and desist warning.
You really need to read John’s link, because it is so perfectly demonstrative of the fundamental dishonesty of these people. In this particular case, they took something that in reality was actually really sweet, and twisted it into something obscene.
Oh yeah, and the gang of jackbooted thugs in that slander? It was two guys, Chris and Doc, the t-shirts were made that morning as a joke, they were wearing sneakers rather than jack boots, and the hair cut was required by the US Army.
I hope Ringo sues them. I’d love to see him go all Hulk Hogan on their Gawker ass.
