99. Re: Blizzard's BlizzCon Apology Oct 29, 2011, 15:29 Prez
Which was the original point, once again. What you are complaining about GLAAD doing is the same as what you are doing. The only difference being people don't actually give a damn if you call them out.

Again, no. I just illustrated why the the two reactions are not the same. In short, my complaint stops here, while GLAAD's is simply step one out of the thought police playbook. And please don't pretend that we both don't know full well exactly what would have happened had Blizzard said "Ah gimme a break - it was a joke people. Lighten up!" Escalation of rhetoric, 'awareness' campaigns of Blizzard's "Hatred", call for boycotts to damage Blizzard's business. It's their modus operandi, and it works to stifle what used to be everyone's right to make a joke without fear of repercussion, which is why they continue to use it. THAT is browbeating and demonizing. It has worked extremely effectively in ruining people in the past - most people will apologize at step one just to shut the cretins up to stop the hypersensitive freaks' crusade to destroy them.

We can play semantics all day; just know I patently do not and will not accept the parallel you insist on continuing to try to make. I will simply stop addressing it at all should you persist. I have a thick skin when someone calls me a pasty-white fat guinea; my skin is noticeably thinner when it comes to self-serving attack dog groups that try to destroy people and businesses in the name of political correctness. Or use their past successes to strong-arm people into letting them have their way, ruining the country along the way.
